  1. ionno, I don't think it's that ridiculous tbh. We' see plenty of guys change positions from college to the pros. Edelman, Denard Robinson, Braxton Miller, Matt Jones (Jaguars), Cajuste (WR to TE), Blake Bell, etc.. We see it happen in the pros too, Pryor to WR, Ty Montgommery to RB, and CBs switch to safety and vice versa a lot. Sometimes you have a DE go to a OLB (albeit from 4-3 to 3-4, but still a position change that can is tougher than it get credit for), and then you have versatile guys like Harvin, Cordarrelle, and Tavon Austin who can play WR, RB, and Returner. And there are safeties like Mark Barron who converted to LB (Dexter Coakley is another), and vice versa like Su'a Cravens. I believe Deone Bucannon made the switch from safety to LB in the pros, and Deion Jones used to be a safety I think. Peppers and Shaq Thompson were both very versatile in college and won the Paul Hornug Award, which recognizes and lauds players for their versatility. Brian Waters played in college as a TE and DE, and then was supposed to be converted to a Center, but the Chiefs had him play at OG and he became a two-time All-Pro and 6 time Pro Bowler. Personally, I think Tavon should get more snaps at RB, and I would have liked to have seen Wheaton at RB since he kinda reminds me of when after he catches the ball. Or at least he did in college, and his combine/pro day numbers would match up well for a RB. A lot of people say Golden Tate plays/runs like a RB once he catches the ball, but I don't think he should convert tbh. Plus, growing up, I always liked to have players switch positions in Madden to take advantage of their specific attributes. I know that in some versions of the game, there's actually a designated period where you can make the position changes. It'd be cool to see Shaq get some snaps at RB behind Run CMC. He could be the goal line back or something.
  2. Name some Players Who Should Change Positions, and tell us why you think so. You can include players who are currently free agents too if you want. We' see plenty of guys change positions from college to the pros. Edelman, Denard Robinson, Braxton Miller, Matt Jones (Jaguars), Cajuste (WR to TE), Blake Bell, etc..

  3. Part of his struggles yday probably had to do with the QBs the Cowboys had out there. Rush is getting better I guess, but he's still a scrub. Mike White is HOT G.A.R.B.A.G.E. though. That screen pass that the Niners sniffed out was way too obvious too.
  4. I was really impressed with him yesterday tbh. Sure, it's the preseason, but the dude was jumping off the line really well, got open deep, and showed off his agility and quick feet. He's got underrated length I guess, and I love his tracking ability. With Hurns gone, I really want him to make the team. Realistically, the Cowboys won't keep both Tavon and Devin Smith, but I kinda hope they do since Dak loves receivers with speed and quickness. The Cowboys want to use Gallup in that role, but tbh, I think Gallup is better off of screens, slants, curls, etc.. He can run the go-route, sure, but Devin and Tavon are MUCH better at it, and the rapport that Dak has with Gallup on the Go-route just isn't there. I think it's time for them to switch the roles up a little. Gallup can play some slot, or at least he did in college I think. Maybe try him out there, and honestly, try Devin on the outside and REALLY try to give Tavon some snaps at RB like they said they would when they acquired him. If Zeke is out, then they should try everything they have at RB.
  5. Good way of looking at it. I could make the argument that he wouldn't know how much I was planning on bidding, but I think there is a way for the Commish to see such information if he truly wanted to go down that route. Not 100% sure though.
  6. That's a good argument. I like it. Fortunately enough, it worked out that way for me. I was honestly skeptical because similar things had happened when I was talking about players with other owners in the league. Thankfully, the players that were picked up during those conversations didn't pan out. They were like Myles White, Darius Johson, and other players who didn't really make an impact. But I understand that those are two different things. 1 is where I'm telling the Commish of all people that I want a player, but the other is where I'm just having a general conversation with someone and foolishly let him know that I'm intrigued by certain players.
  7. I legit have a sleeping disorder, so sometimes random thoughts like this from 2+ years ago pop into my head when I can't sleep.
  8. Jeez, 200+ touches would be dope. I am such a huge fan of Duke. I really hope that happens.
  9. Yeah, but at the same time, I did kind of "assume the risk" by going to him. Thankfully he didn't do me dirty like that. That's something we've tried, but it's kinda hard to figure out, because we don't want it to be first come first serve. We actually want the weaker teams to benefit from the waiver system, so if two teams bid the same amount, then the weaker team gets the player. Is there a way for a non-Commish to put in a ticket with MFL? That's probably something I should have looked into at the time, lol. I just honestly didn't know the process, so I figured it was best to ask the Commish since he has more experience with MFL than I do.
  10. He looked pretty good out there I guess. Sure, it's the pre-season, but he fought for extra yardage and I didn't notice him making mistakes as a route runner. Maybe he could get a little better when it comes to route quickness and shiftiness, plus jumping off the line/snap a little better, but I liked what I saw from him. Well, I would like it if he could jump a little higher and could burn you deep, but honestly, that might come with some time. With the way he fights for extra yardage, I kinda hope the Niners consider using him for some GL and Red Zone touches as a RB. I know those days are behind him, but I fundamentally believe that you have to use a player's versatility to your advantage, as opposed to only making him specialize.
  11. Weber didn't look that sharp out there. Honestly, after watching his tape in college, I didn't really like that pick. Too reliant on the OL and blocks he receives. He'll prolly be a practice squad guy this year.
  12. Yeah, I don't think they want to just use him as a pass-catching specialist. I think they really do want to give him more carries and use him effectively behind Lamar. I am a bit nervous about it, but I'll keep my fingers crossed for sure. GO DUKE!!!
  13. Words cannot express how much I love that Duke finally got traded. I hope he sets a new career high for carries this season. He's obviously a better receiver than runner, but he deserved more carries in Cleveland for sure.
  14. After what we saw yesterday, you should like Morris and MAYBE Darius Jackson. Weber didn't look too sharp, but he's a young rookie, so he'll learn and get better. Jackson seemed to dance and cut a lot in the backfield. The patience can help, but unlike Zeke, he doesn't accelerate or jump off the snap that well, something I LOOOOOOOVE to see in RBs. So I'd go with Morris, as he's more experienced and familiar with the system, plus he seems to be well-liked by the coaching staff. Jackson is on his 3rd stint with the team already and just doesn't seem to have it, despite what his combine/Pro Day metrics may tell you. https://www.playerprofiler.com/nfl/darius-jackson/
