    That's one hell of a SB prediction...

  2. Baldwin, TY or Gronk for me.

    Pats lost their best receiver and and their 2nd best is suspended for the 1st 4 weeks.  Kelce is more of an unknown this year with Mahomes at the helm than ppl are willing to admit and Ertz is coming off a career high in TDs.  Gronk could easily outscore THOSE 2 by 4 PPG this year while completely lapping the rest of the field.

    It's hard to call anyone a reach once you get into rounds 12+. ADPs can be pretty wild at that point as people are less concerned about ADP and value and are more focused on getting their pet players. 

    True.  I guess i just dont think there is any crazy market undervaluation on a player in the earlier rounds then.

  4. Only reaching for a few hail mary's near the end of the draft.  Taking Breida, Dixon, and Doug Martin well ahead of their ADP to ensure they are on my team. Breida will be no worse than a RB3/4 and if Mckinnon underperforms or doesnt hold up to the workload (since he has never had it) he has a legit chance to be a low-end RB1.  Dixon and Martin have similar upside that could easily come to fruition as well.

    I've been saying this since last fall.  It wasn't because of jordy being gone.  I don't know the cause but he's basically the tiger woods of football.  Totally lost his mojo.  Yes, one good first half this year.  Not the same guy anymore. 

    His mechanics are awful. Not even stepping into his throws in the most clean of pockets.  It may be loss of mojo...or maybe a degenerative knde condition.  Who knows for sure but it is painfully clear he is not the same guy as 2014 and prior.

  7. Trust me, AZ (and Pat) fan here, you want nothing to do with Housler. He's had every chance over the last 3 years to prove something and just hasnt. Regularly misses blocking assignments (finally Cards are doing something about that) and drops way too many catchable balls. From watching nearly every Card game over his career, although certainly talented, it really just seems like he doesnt have the drive to become a better, more consistent player. It may be the coaching, but over 2 regimes we have seen Andre Roberts, Michael Floyd and Ellington blossu, yet dreck like Jeff King and Jim Dray has kept Housler from more playing time.

  8. The thread title of this should be changed from "Phillip Rivers is Terrible" to "Norv Turner is Terrible". Rivers was fine and dandy the whole time, it was Norv who turned him into a pumpkin.

    Norv has moved on to killing Trich

    :( Unforunately yes.

  9. Every QB is different though and Brady is obviously a 1st ballot HOF and you can even make an argument for GOAT.

    Brady is never going to pass Terry Bradshaw or Montana as GOAT with only three Super Bowl wins. And anyone who doesn't think TB was more dominant in his time than Brady is now has to go read some football history books. Don't bother with stats, either. It wasn't a stats game back then.

    At the risk of hijacking my own thread, Bradshaw the GOAT? :no:

    Anybody outside of Stiller Nation ever say that? Their defense played a major role in Bradshaw's 4 rings...

    So Eli is just as good as Elway, since they have the same amount of Super Bowl wins? Plunkett better than P-Man? Dilfer better than Marino? This isn't the NBA - QBs need a TEAM around them to do playoff/Super Bowl damage...And, to take off what Myer said, I literally have not read, heard, watched or listened to any professional nor Steeler Homer ever conjure up such a rosy image of Bradshaw such as the GOAT that you propose...

  11. Which All-Time great coach has NOT had a great/all-time great QB?

    Joe Gibbs
    Yup. And Bill Parcells.

    I guess it comes down to your definition of "all-time great coach", and what is the cut-off (top 5, top 10, top 20?). For me, at this point, I wouldn't say there are more than 10 (which might be stretching it) "All-time" great coaches in NFL. Off the top of my head, my list of all-time greats:

    Paul Brown

    George Halas

    Vince Lombardi

    Don Shula

    Bill Belichick

    I'm sure I am leaving out a few, but to me, it is and should be an exclusive list.

    I like it, but I think there's room for Gibbs, Landry, and Walsh.
    Don't know how they slipped my mind. Gibbs would probably be right after them.

  13. Bill Belichick's New England Patriots win a Super Bowl in 2001 despite fielding a roster viewed league-wide as old and one of the most undertalented in the entire NFL. Tom Brady, a game manager in 2001, emerges in 2003 and 2004 when mildly improved Pats rosters win Super Bowls despite their having the league's most games lost due to injuries by starters in both seasons.

    In 2005, a new league rule is implemented which Bill Belichick breaks in 2007 by having his video assistant record opponents' signals from the wrong place in the stadium. He is briskly vilified as a cheater, and the critics demand asterisks for the adorementioned three Patriots' SB wins.

    That very season, when it could be safely presumed no more 'illegal videotaping' was happening, the Patriots make such an utter mockery of their opponents that the same critics who dubbed BB a fraud now accuse him of running up scores. At this point (or since), no coach in NFL history had ever achieved such total dominance, for half a season, as to make the modern day hyper-competitive NFL look like a bad high school league (and bizarrely, have the point be underlined by his harshest critics t'boot).

    The Pats cool down but still run the table, make short work of their early playoff opponents, reach the Super Bowl as the only 18-0 team in league history with the greatest offense in league history, lose a tightly contested matchup... and '18-1' becomes a favourite catcall for Patriots/Belichick haters ("hey, your team narrowly missed becoming the unquestioned GOAT, cementing the GOAT dynasty, with the GOAT coach and QB... ha ha ha, loser!"), who also revert back to the 'cheater' label, still confused as to whether Belichick is a tyrant or a sham.

    In 2013, after a few years of less-pronounced success (including another narrow SB loss, another AFCCG appearance, 4 division championships, and the league's second ever 11-win non-playoff season), the critics now add another charge to the mix: incompetence.

    In a league where player turnover is so high the average career lasts a mere three years, BB is incompetent because a dozen player acquisitions have been disappointing. By drafting premier TEs in rounds 2 and 4, and a stud RB in round 4, to round out the league's most potent offense with downright revolutionary elements (playcalling, hurry-up, two TE aerial attacks), BB is incompetent because he's failed to replicate this genius with his pass defense.

    Despite his incompetence, he's still a bully too, as witnessed by recent Patriot demolitions of good-to-great teams: the 2009 Titans, 2010 Jets, 2011 Broncos, and the 2012 AFC juggernaut Texans... twice. And of course, thanks to a laughable lack of perspective regarding a 2007 mistake, he'll always be a sham too.

    Whatever.

    Certainly a one-sided view- but something I absolutely agree with...I love to hear about BB having Tom Brady. Which All-Time great coach has NOT had a great/all-time great QB?...By that thinking, every coach with a great QB should win multiple Super Bowls. Guess Sean Payton, Tony Dungy, Mike Holmgren, Don Shula (Marino era) are bums...

  14. Belichick is under .500 without Brady. Browns & Patriots.Can not be the best of all-time.

    And where would Lombardi be without Starr, or Walsh without Montana, or Knoll w/o Bradshaw, or Shula w/o Unitas, Greise AND Marino, and the list goes on and on. You cannot be this short-sighted to think that Belichick has been the only "great" coach with a "great" QB in NFL annals. You can be the greatest coach in the world, but if you have, say, John Skelton as your QB, you are going nowhere...And also, as others have said, you obviously do not know the Browns situation -- that was a franchise on the rebound until Modell announced his decision to move the team.
