  1. I don’t mind the pick but taking into account the rest of our offseason, the rest of the league would like to know how the view is from up our own asses
  2. PFF is just another piece of the puzzle, same as any other ranking system. The fact that they try to look at things in a vacuum and look at so many finer points means that maybe they have more pieces of the puzzle that others. But those pieces aren’t always corner or edge pieces that shape the picture, sometimes (often times in my opinion), they are simply part of the larger whole. Personally, I find their fine detail data points to be more thought provoking and worthy of my notice than overall rankings. As an example with made up stats, don’t tell me Joe Mixon was a top 5 grades back on the season, that does nothing for me because I don’t know/care for how they weight different stats. Now tell me he was 3rd in missed tackles and 1st in broken tackles, you have my attention. PFF is generally data without context. That can be useful in its own way but as with box scores, data without context can only tell us so much. As for the self love PFF and those who peddle it have, every single person thinks their way is the best way. Every ranking site thinks they have the best system and the best data points to measure by. You can’t sell your product if you don’t believe in it.
  3. Well PJ Walker is signing with the Panthers. I'd say he has a very good chance to win the back up job and actually may have an opportunity to battle to be a starter. I don't anticipate things breaking his way there, I think Teddy will be fine and he's getting paid well to be there, but it wasn't the worst situation to land in. In Seattle, he would've been a back up only, in Carolina there is a shot to win the job outright or keep it after performing well following an injury. Still was wishing for somewhere like Chicago or NE with a much more open competition but this may be good for his long term career too.
  4. No offense but this is the take of someone checking highlights and box scores. I’ve lived in the Tampa area since Winston was drafted and watch all their games, Winston is trash. He has the raw physical ability that most crumby back ups don’t, that’s why he looks good at times. But his mental process and ability to run an offense are garbage tier. When you factor him into your game plan to win, he is in the negative column every time. He will be lucky to carve out a career similar to Fitzpatrick, an over capable back up (sometimes starter) who was incapable of developing the mental tools and decision making to succeed long term at the NFL level. I would not want that for the Bears. At least Foles has had success, I hate the trade for him but you can’t take away Big Dick Nick’s track record in the post season
  5. gosh darn this team for giving me 1 year of hope. EDIT: I’d like to thank the forum filters for making sound like Ned Flanders
  6. As a Bears fan who has lived in Tampa since Jameis was drafted, I ask you if you really want the Bears to have Jay Cutler 2.0? Jameis may throw for More if everything than Jay but I’ll tell you the one thing he does exactly the same: he finds ways for his team to lose the game. This would be a disaster. I’d rather roll another year with Trubisky. It’s Dalton or bust now
  7. Yes but one of the major concerns is that we don’t have vaccination against this yet so while it’s not as deadly, we can do nothing to curb the spread of it other than quarantine. It will spread nationwide without strong measures taken and may do that even with those measures. I do agree though that a lot of the “hysteria” stems from the alarm causes by things like the NBA suspension. What the general public isn’t getting about those types of acts is that there is a liability component. When there is a pandemic, you don’t want to be responsible for holding an event with 40,00 attendees in close quarters. This is a serious issue with serious measures needed. But no, we aren’t all going to die. Take it seriously, do the things you need to do to stay safe and try to get through the next two months while the gov tries to seize control of this thing Edit: I do think the draft as an event is in jeopardy though. The season and training camp starts, probably not as much
  8. So the NFLPA approves an extension for the vote but doesn’t approve a request for players who have already voted to be able to change their votes Pretty easy to see why Okung thinks the NFLPA leadership is operating in bad faith. By their own rules, the CBA did not have the required approval to be sent to the players but it was pushed anyway. Now all this extra time but no flexibility on changing votes, seems awful like they are not looking out for player interests
  9. 12 team PPR SF, both teams were contenders last year Gave Miles Sanders and Calvin Ridley Got Chris Godwin and 2021 1st (late) Love Sanders and was hesitant but all the feedback I got was that it was a good trade I should consider. I think all players involved end up with great seasons but I have some questions about Sanders' durability and while I love Ridley statistically, I'm usually not excited when I watch him play
  10. I was offered the following the other day in a 14 team SF PPR league where the start up draft is still going: Give Juju Get Jameis Winston Additional context: I'm light at QB (Wilson and Fitz as starters) and the guy offering Winston literally has 8 QBs, he has tried to hoard the position and will undoubtedly have the 1.01 next year. I traded up to select Juju at the top of the 3rd, Winston was selected later that round. I snap declined and told the owner that if I had wanted Winston, I would've picked him instead of literally choosing Juju instead. His response "LOL of course. I think the landscape has shifted though". Queue my Dr Evil face, RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT...
  11. 12 team ppr sf, both teams involved were playoff teams Was just offered Godwin/2021 late 1st for Miles Sanders/Ridley. Seems like a good offer but I’m a little hesitant based on my depth and wanted some opinions. It’s start 2 RB and the only other startable RBs I have right now are Chubb and Kamara. I do have 1.07, 1.09, and 1.11 in the rookie draft but it feels like trading away Sanders would put me 1 injury away from disaster. He doesn’t really have any other RBs he could ship back other than possibly Damien Williams (depending on how you feel about him)
  12. This would be silly for them to do. It's one or the other. Either a team like Tampa gets a high 2nd or 3rd as compensation to take a player who, honestly, looked ok but not great before dealing with injury or AZ absorbs half the salary and maybe sends a 6th with him. The Cards shouldn't do anything more than that, they have middling cap space and they are a losing team. They can afford to eat DJ's salary this year because they aren't going anywhere anyway. Next year might be a different story but then they can cut him. But they can't let Drake go. He was too good in their offense. Having a player like that, who is obviously perfect in your offense, is such a boon for your QB's growth and development. They would be absolute fools to let him leave.
  13. He has a BMI of 31.8, that puts him above Gurley, CMC, Zeke and Barkley. He is thick enough for NFL contact but is too small to make his paper as any type of power back. His game will have to continue to be finesse. Due to his size and Allen’s presence, he will probably never be the TD monster he was in college. Allen has 5 rushing TDs in the second half of the season compared to Singletary’s 1. I’d expect some positive regression since Singletary got taken down within the 5 a few times but not much unless they decide to protect Allen from running (probably not at this point in his career)
  14. I've already derailed this thread enough with Singletary talk so I'll just try to keep brief a couple of things I'd like to add. I do agree with you that chasing exceptions is a fool's errand and a bad game to play. Singletary cost me 2nds last year so my excitement over him needed to be measured against the low risk cost. However after his year of play, I don't think we are chasing an exception but seeing one. Throwing out week 17 where Buffalo was resting, Singletary averaged 16 carries and 2 catches per game from week 9 onward, he only dropped below 15 carries twice (14 in one and 8 in one that he wasn't the starter). You can increase that to three games if you include the playoffs where he only had 13 carries but 6 catches. Gore averaged 8 carries per game in that span, Allen averaged 7 carries. It is not as large of a sample size as I would like but you can make some judgments based on half a season's usage, especially when a team made a successful playoff push during that time. They were giving Singletary a 15-20 carry in the second half. It could've been because Gore was extremely ineffective but it generally worked for them. Things could change but I don't think the Bills will pick an RB in the first 2 days and I don't think they will bring in meaningful competition in free agency. They likely will bring in a compliment, maybe even a redzone vulture if they think that Singletary's lack of scoring was more about him and less about Allen taking those TDs. Draft capital and performance last year would indicate that, small or not, they will give him the chance to be the lead back again
  15. I have to agree that they are bringing someone in (Rivers I’d bet) but was Jacoby really that bad all of last year? I admit I didn’t watch much of his game but statistically speaking, his pace before injury was 3600/32/7, then everything kind of fell apart. Granted, franchise QBs need to find a way to make it work in times of adversity (Brady and Wentz made it happen with very little in the way of weapons) but it seems like, as Irsay said today, they were better off with Brissett than half the league is with their QB situations
