  1. All the faux drama aside, I'll take Rodgers side on this one. Any HOF QB is worth all of the head coaches and GMs in the league combined. Without a top QB, most of those guys are a fraud anyway.
  2. Amon-Ra can ball and plays big. Such a deep WR group this year for him to fall into the 4th round. One of the steals of the draft IMO. His dad was two-time Mr. Universe. His brother plays for the Pack. I really like this pick for the Lions.
  3. Yes definitely. In general, I think it's historically been a huge mistake to take any TE in the top 10 of the NFL draft, but Pitts does look like Megatron.
  4. I think that's fair. That said, none of those guys tried to raise the capital gains tax to 43.4%. There's a modest increase and then there's just crazy.
  5. Yes expect them to try for retroactive for the entire calendar year, not just from when it passes, if it passes.
  6. And don't listen to the talking heads on TV, listen to what the markets are telling you. And right now, they just puked all over this plan, just a nasty reversal that immediately hurt every single investor in every single income group.
  7. I'm not going to get into the politics over it, but this is going to tank the market especially if they try to make it retroactive. I think it will be DOA in the Senate and would never pass. This doesn't just soak the rich, anyone with any exposure to the stock market loses big time. It's just stupid stupid stupid.
  8. The stock market just dropped like a rock over on the headline about a proposed capital gains increase. Wait until it actually passes.
  9. Yes Curry would be a more direct physical comparison, but I don't get the comp from an outlier perspective. Curry doesn't represent the physical outlier in the NBA that Smith would represent in the NFL. And even Curry weighs 185-190lbs. I do think Smith can put on the weight with the right trainer and he can be a star like Curry. But playing at 170 or less in the NFL may not end well. Basic physics will eventually apply.
  10. He's an extreme outlier. An indirect NBA comp I would make is Muggsy Bogues. Playing at 170lbs in the NFL is like playing at 5'3" in the NBA. Smith can still be a star and the primary difference is he can gain more weight over time and probably will. But seriously, even Lululemon doesn't make pants skinny enough for this guy. The whole issue with his weight and BMI goes away if he just hits the squat rack. He looks like someone that could drop and give you 100 pushups without breaking a sweat but skips leg day at the gym. That said, the nickname Slim Reaper is pretty cool.
  11. I totally get your point, not disagreeing from that perspective. I do wish Dalton the best. He's a good guy and I hope he can have great success with the Bears except for when they play the Lions.
  12. Sure my point was they could have simply kept Trubisky. The Bears signed Dalton for 4x what the Bills ended up paying Trubisky. $10M total cap hit vs. $2.5M. It just makes no sense to pay more for a guy that does not represent a QB1 upgrade for any team in the NFL. I know they would have paid more if Trubisky was the presumed starter instead of a QB2, but it would have still been far less than $10M.
  13. I would argue that Dalton wasn't necessarily the best option if they already had Trubisky and Foles, Dalton represents the same option at best in that group of below average options.
  14. I just keep going back to every prime time game that Dalton ever played in. It's not a coaching problem. He's just bad under pressure, similar to Trubisky. He doesn't process information faster under pressure. On paper, he's not an upgrade over Trubisky or Foles at all. But maybe Nagy can find some magic for him. I do think Nagy is a good coach.
