  1. Yeah there is no way Trubisky signs that contract with the Bears. There's no way the Bears offer it.
  2. They didn't have Trubisky though right? He was a FA and they clearly didn't want to resign him. You do have a point with Foles but they seem to think Dalton is an upgrade. The consensus seems to be that Nagy/Pace needed to do something at QB to keep their jobs and I don't think running back Trubisky/Foles was a real option.
  3. I've been getting a ridicule for expressing this view recently. Dalton isn't going to carry a team to a championship by himself but his teams won 10 games in a tough AFCN four times. Assuming that Wilson or Watson trades are impossible, which it looks like they are, I'm not sure what better options Pace had. I think I'd prefer Dalton to Fitzpatrick, Mariota or Alex Smith. Should they have traded for Carson Wentz? I know some people are saying punt the season and draft someone next year but I don't think Pace and Nagy have that luxury. They need to win now to keep their jobs and Dalton is
  4. I thought this was a pretty good landing spot until I looked into Daniel Jones stats from last year. People didn't want him to go to Baltimore because of their low passing volume but Lamar had over twice as many passing TDs (26 vs 11) and only 200 less yards. Anyone buying in dynasty?
  5. I view this as a good signing for Robinson. We all knew they were going to add another back. Them going with a vet that likely won't challenge for the starting job was the ideal. I will get concerned if they bring a pass catching back like Duke Johnson or Jamal Williams. Someone that might demand significant touches and we end up with a real timeshare. I don't think he has the top end speed to put him in the top 5. In no order, Chubb, Kamara, Cook, CMC, Henry. That's my top 5 and I can't see him pushing any of those out. Barkley, Aaron Jones and Hunt all probably ahead of him too
  6. Every discussion about Robinson centers around the high percentage of snaps he got last year. People don't bring up how bad that offense was and how good Robinson was in that bad offense. If the offense as whole takes a step forward, which we expect it to under Trevor, why can't Robinson still be a fantasy RB1 even if his carry % drops.
  7. I agree he looked terrible last year. The Pats seem to think that it was a result of injuries and no real training camp or maybe both? I have no idea how they saw him last year and decided to bring him back
  8. If a player hit Brady the way they were allowed to hit Cam Goodell would have had the player assassinated.
  9. There is some recently biases with Gase. Yes he was terrible but he had a 10 win season and made playoffs. Gus Bradley won 14 games in 4 years for the Jags. Hue Jackson won 3 games in 2.5 years in Cle. Several of the HC hires this year have been head scratchers. I still think I'd prefer Meyer to Campbell or Culley
  10. Pretty sure its a thing. It was a big deal when the Ravens had to open in Denver after their SB because they share a parking lot with the Orioles and the O's wouldn't move their game.
  11. The bad contract is almost meaningless. It's not like they will be signing big FAs this year or next anyway. This is a team eating a bad contract today to get picks for the team they are building toward 2 years from now.
  12. Yeah its basically the Browns Osweiler trade but higher picks because Stafford is involved. Lions eat the bad contract because they aren't trying to win now anyway
  13. Not sure how you see that. Lions are in full rebuild and Stafford wasn't part of that plan. Moving him for 2 1sts is a terrific return.
  14. Not sure who you watched this year but he certainly looked special to me. He doesn't have breakaway speed but he turned so many negative plays into good runs in a terrible offense. 3rd in yards after contact only behind Cook and Henry.
  15. This is just how Rotoworld has been this year. They are obviously trying to add humor and be edgier. I personally am not a fan, and it has led to me using them less as a resource.
  16. I think its also worth pointing out, 5 of his last 6 games have been against stout run defenses. Bal Pit Phi and Was x 2. Pretty rough stretch. The other game, Min, he had a good game.
  17. It will still be a hard situation to fully trust but I believe the timeshare earlier this year was a result of Akers struggling to learn the offense and then getting hurt. McVay had some comment a few weeks ago about Akers needing to improve when "the ball isn't in his hands". Now that he seems to be healthy and up to speed on pass blocking or whatever else McVay was referring to, it might be his show.
  18. When I think of Henderson, I think about how he couldn't get on the field last year when Gurley looked washed. They also spent a high pick on Akers this year. I just don't think he is their long term plan for the position. There is something he isn't doing enough of for the Rams.
  19. Or maybe the reason the backfield was split all year was because they were waiting for Akers to get up to speed and deal with injuries. It has never felt like they wanted Henderson to be the guy.
  20. Justice Hill actually looked pretty good. Weird that it took all of this for him to see the field.
  21. Ignore the final score, the ATL offense didn't look good. LV turnovers gave them short fields and ATL defensive scores. Ito was also way more involved toward the end of the game, getting the final TD. ATL offense is hard to really trust. Gurley's value was due to his volume and goaline work. That role looks like its split between Hill and Smith so both are going to be unreliable.
  22. Gurley had looked terrible this year but has 9 tds. Hill doesn't need to be a special talent if he gets the majority of Gurley's touches
