  1. Perriman's the 3rd wideout and my guess to replace Evans. Watson struggled in camp and was almost cut. He couldn't beat out Bobo Wilson or Scotty Miller earlier in the year. Oh, you don't recognize those names? That tells you all you need to know. Both were bad. There's always some risk when a player comes out of nowhere and gets that level of targets. It is entirely possible Watson takes Evans role and they leave Perriman at his #3 spot. But I would be scared of that because Watson did nothing all training camp and season to this point. He's had 2 targets!!! until yesterday. So, if it was me I'd target Perriman, knowing the risk that Watson may be scheduled for the #2 role.
  2. It's got to be TD and volume based. Expecting a lot of points with chances for short yardage TDs.
  3. I think people aren't factoring in the marginal value of the Pats D. Even if/when they come down to earth, the points added by the Pats D over a wavier-wire FA can be much more significant than the drop from a WR2 to WR3.
  4. The line, and Dotson, actually played well. The worst player was Smith. Dotson had those two holding penalties, first call was bogus second was correct. And yeah Barber ran a bad route... but it STILL was an errant throw on an RB against Richard Sherman. Arians is just protecting Winston's ego.
  5. You literally know none of this. How do you know its a phenomenal offer? You at a whiskey bar with Jerry Jones? Fan irrationality can be comical.
  6. My expectation: 1) A bigger RBBC than last year. RoJo is running with more confidence than last year. But he still has the severe limitation of being a liability in both pass pro and in pass catching. There's been rumblings that coaching has really helped with this, but I'll believe it when I see it. RoJo had severe limitations last year in both vision, pass catching and pass blocking it would take a significant improvement to overcome. He would've been cut if he wasn't a 2nd round pick. 2) I agree that Dare has a chance to be the future lead back (of the players on the roster). Barber is actually a fairly good rusher but offers little in the passing game and has limited athletic upside. I think he could actually thrive as a valuable RB2 behind a solid line. But the Bucs OL was trash run blocking last year and hasn't looked any better this year. I think Barber might've been hit behind the line more than any RB - and not because he was dancing. Barber was 9th in attempts but 19th in yards. 3) The path to value for a Bucs RB this year is likely in the passing game. Unless the Bucs coaches are holding back on calling a significantly improved running game in the season, I'd expect the RBs to struggle. If Dare can step up as the clear pass catching options that might get him touches and a chance to supplant Barber and Jones. The only reason I think my opinion has value is that (a) as a Bucs fan (pour one out for me) I follow enough sources and (b) I've had a pretty good read on the backfield the last couple of years. Take that for whatever's it worth.
  7. Bad run blocking offensive line, a timeshare, and an inability to catch? Oof.
  8. I'm not fan of Fisher but to mention him in the same breath as Jackson is stupid. Fisher has 6 10+ win seasons in a career that was far too long. Fisher won 51% of his games, Hue 21%. I don't care what team you have, that is in no way comparable. Yes, Fisher sucks. And yes, Hue is the worst head coach in NFL history.
  9. I'm curious what others are thinking for Week 14 and 15 pre-emptive pickups. My thoughts in rough order (assuming CHI, LAR, HOU, MIN rostered): Week 14: LAC, DEN, NYJ, BUF, PIT, ARI, WAS, TEN Week 15: BAL, WAS, SEA, DET, BUF, CIN
  10. 1) You're taking an INCREDIBLY small sample size and drawing sketchy conclusions. Sean McVay hasn't won a single big thing yet. Pederson is an OC coach who's own offence is struggling. There is a lot of evidence that coach's who call plays struggle long-term. Of course, there are exceptions like Sean Payton - who went 7-9 3 straight years years and has been in one Super Bowl. When you look at Win %, Playoff Wins, and Playoff Win % you're looking at (1) Belichick and then Mike Tomlin, John Harbaugh, Andy Reid, Pete Carroll, and Mike McCarthy. McCarthy doesn't belong, he's a terrible coach who rode the best QB talent of this generation to Valhalla. You see a mixed bag: 3 defensive coach's who do not call plays and an offensive coach who does (and hasn't at times). And a ST coach. And 3 DCs, 1 ST coach, and 1 OC (McCarthy) have won SBs. 2) Of the coach's who have won multiple Super Bowls (its a small list): 7 DCs, 6 OCs. 3) Personally, I think teams should hire more ST coaches like Harbaugh (or Toub). There are a host of reasons but for starters they understand, interact with, and coach the entire team. They're big picture thinkers and leaders. Good OC/DCs =/= Good HCs. There is very little overlap.
  11. Curious if anyone has any thoughts on Conner still not starting. He's practiced fully twice, but is he officially out of the concussion protocol? It seems very likely Conner plays, but trying to gauge the value holding onto Samuels.
  12. I think I'd go Penny, Miller, Adams, Reynolds. Reynolds has gone two games without a target, and Adams will be in an even bigger RBBC when Sproles returns. Penny at least is trending in the right direction and Miller has been productive at times.
  13. I sure hope not. I have utter disdain for the Hall of Fame process. There is as many RBs in the HoF as there are OL - even though there are 5x as many OL on the field. The HoF voters are ill-informed journalists. So Eli will get in because he has the rings. And like Aikman, he will be undeserving.
  14. I can't believe the media doesn't laugh at all the #### that comes out of this guy's mouth. Unreal.
