  1. I guess Arodin is not aware Miller signed with the Texans. kinda proves my point in a way.
  2. For the life of me, I cannot understand why people ignore Lamar Miller. What more does a guy need to do?
  3. I own Miller in dynasty. I am praying he wises up and recognizes he is better off elsewhere. He has a career ypc close to 5, is a good,pass catcher and is only 24. Any guesses where he could/should wind up: NYG, Houston, Dallas, even NE (though they just gave $$$ to Lewis right before he was injured)? Any other guesses?
  4. The Dec 27 Jets Patriots game will be for home field advantage. Book it.
  5. Most telling fact about Wheaton's future is the quote from head coach Tomlin: "Martavis has problems bigger than football". Bryant had to fail 4 tests to get suspended. Big red flag. Could be another Josh Gordon. Which opens a HUGE door for Wheaton.
  6. To me, you get a kicker from a high scoring offense that kicks in a dome. Starts and ends with Vinatieri, IMO.
  7. A lot more money? No. Who are the QB coaches who make Aiken/Madden type money? Not many head coaches do.
  8. Probably a lot more money and a lot less aggravation being a great TV analyst rather than being a QB coach. Like Madden or Aikman. Not sure why he risks significant injury to his neck and back.
  9. I think there is a lot of misconception about Bradford's "injury history". Someone made the point on another tbread that there is no increased risk of ACL tear after a second injury (actually less). Probably bc there is better chance the orthopods got it right on the repair ! Seriously, it is bc of the scar formation etc. Bradford is not a running QB. There is NO problem w his arm. What we have here is basically a frameshifted of the "start" of his career by 2-3 years. He is only 27. This is not like Chad Pennington. The "next team" can do what they want with his contract, but Bradford is in a good situation. If I were the Eagles, I would roll the dice and lock him up. Looks like he might get very expensive if they wait. All of the pieces are there. Lightning has already struck twice.
  10. Yeah, bummer for you that the Rams gave up on him. To be fair to the Rams, how many chances and how many tens of millions of dollars should they have kept giving Bradford before moving on? In your opinion, how much would have finally been too much? Well considering he hurt his knee and not his arm, at least enough of a chance to see what he could do over a full season. It sucks, but he was a #1 overall talent. Their impatience appears to be the Eagles gain. What exactly did Bradford do wrong? He was unlucky. But his arm and talent were never in question. So one more season? Let's say Bradford stayed with the Rams and did something novel - played every game this season. And let's say he managed some better than average numbers. What happens next season? Give him another huge guaranteed contract? After 'proving it' for only a single season? I think that was a big part of the dilemma - even if Bradford survives this season, do you really want to hitch your wagon and budget to him for another 5+ years? Realistically, they "hitched their wagon" to him when they picked him #1. Especially if he had a good season, yes, I would have def offered him a long term contract if I were in their shoes. Just like the Eagles have been talking about doing BEFORE he has even played a game. Great QB talents are rare. This is not an arm problem, and he is not a running QB. I think Chip Kelly is going to look awfully smart (again) after this season. Bradford is a difference maker. You take your chances in a violent game like the NFL. Everyone is just one play away from being done. Bradford was unlucky. As were the Rams - they were put in a tough situation. But from where I sit, they did not follow through on their convictions. And so now their QB is Nick Foles. We shall see...

  12. Yeah, bummer for you that the Rams gave up on him. Last I checked, QBs throw with their arms, not their knees though. If he stays healthy, St. Louis fans are going to hate life. He has a cannon for an arm. Now with a good scheme and great weapons, he could explode.
  13. I think it bears repeating that the initial reports of Foster's injury may have been quite misleading. We were "told" the "groin muscle came off the bone" and he needed surgery. The usual recovery for this would be months. HOWEVER, we are now told the timeline for return is accelerated, at least compared to these initial reports. Which in my mind brings the initial reports into question. I did a little Google search and it turns out there is an early Houston Chronicle report which suggest this groin injury "requiring surgery" was in fact a "sports hernia". Since we are now being told his return is possibly much earlier, I think the evidence now (at least as far as it is being reported) suggests this is the more likely injury. As such, the timeline for return is quite believable. Importantly, there is a wide gulf between the two injuries and timelines. It would really not be possible for him to return from a true acute tear requiring surgery in such a short time. If any of the reports of relatively short term recovery are near accurate, he almost certainly had a "sports hernia". Just a semi educated guess from a non-orthopedic, non-general, thoracic surgeon. Which is why I drafted him in round 5!
