    My biggest complaint with the penalties was the ticky-tack PI's that were called on the Eagles but similar ticky-tack calls which could have been made against the Panthers were not made. If you are going to call it tight, fine, but call it tight on both teams.

    It wasn't consistently called at all.  For example, I thought Malcolm Jenkins was getting away with the exact same things they were calling Mills for.

    There was a study awhile ago that said if you get to the 1 yard line due to penalty, your odds of getting the 2 we're almost as even as getting the PAT. That was when the PAT was from the 2. Now that it's back to the 25, I'd go for the 2 also at the 1. Better chances of Blount getting 1 yard for 2 points than only getting 1 pt for a mid range FG.

    It's just so great seeing a coach play the percentages instead of always going for the conservative/scared approach. Just look at Rivera's gutless call to not try a long FG before half. 

    Did the study say if the EV of scoring from the one yard line was greater than 1 or simply that it was greater than the EV of a 25 yard extra point?  Cause Jake already made the attempt.  I can see an argument that Doug shouldn't have taken points off the board to go for two.  

    I liked the call whether or not the numbers supported it - it shows that he thinks his team can get a yard anytime they need to get a yard.

    There's a big difference in "not caring" and "not being willing to die on that hill".

    Exactly.  When the NFLPA starts asking its  members what their priorities are as they begin negotiations, I just can't see anything about suspensions generating a lot of buzz and becoming among the top priorities.  There are just so many other issues that affect everyone in a much bigger way.

    Zeke got new phones and destroyed his old text messages!  I guess this means he is guilty.  :yes:

    I'm just trying to apply the same logic used by Salty Haters vs. Brady.


    "So why did the league come down hard on Elliott? During June’s hearing, Friel articulated eight factors the league viewed as a lack of cooperation on Elliott’s part, starting with the fact that Elliott said he bought two new cell phones last fall, after the new iPhone came out. Elliott said he didn’t know he had to keep the data (including text messages) that had been stored on his old phones. Update (5:11 p.m. ET): The NFL’s personal conduct policy does indeed state that a “failure to cooperate with an investigation or to be truthful in responding to inquiries will be separate grounds for disciplinary action.”

    If I were in Zeke's position I don't think I would be turning anything over - couldn't he get himself into legal trouble?  This wasn't the case with Brady.  

  5. If I needed a decent RB3/flex to put me over the top I might pay a mid 2nd for west, but I think I'd rather chase someone with some upside (be it Long term or for this year).  If I owned him I'd be looking to move him and a random 2nd would be enough.

    what about martavis Bryant after the partial reinstatement news?  I tried to buy earlier and failed - offered Antonio + ajayi for zeke + Bryant.  thinking about making another run.

    :yes:  Rivers isn't worth much IMO but he might be in the league longer than Perriman.  Brett just hasn't shown squat yet.  Or this might be a great buy low for BP .   I'd take Perriman here but I certainly wouldn't seek him out. 

    Brett?  In that case I want rivers :D

    The only other instance in which I'd take rivers would be if I was a contender and didn't trust my QB1 - maybe wentz or Prescott or even an oft injured guy like roethlisberger.

    Hope I'm wrong but I think he's a bust.  Haven't seen much to this point and he's pretty much the last chip Kelly player on the team.  With the moves we have made at wr it's hard to see him having a role

    He's at best the fourth wr and I would rather see the rookies play

    I think he gets an opportunity to earn the other starting spot outside.  The way Doug talks about competition there it almost sounds like he's rooting for him.

    I think I see the problem.  Far riskier leaving Cook on the board than Williams, although it's unlikely he'd be there either.  He should have attempted to swap 1.07 for 1.06 before picking (Cook).

    Don't like the end result.  Lynch wasn't enough for 1.07 -> 1.11 and getting two 2nd's for 2.01 is poor return as well.  Samuel feels early at 1.12 but that's personal preference and if it had been Zones or JJSS I'd be ok with that.

    Team A gave Michael Thomas, Ameer Abdullah, Chris Hogan
    Team A got Mike Williams, Marshawn Lynch, Chris Samuel, 2018 2nd, 2018 2nd, 2018 4th.


    Well he's at it again, but this one was a big win.  If he didn't give Thomas away he'd be the favorite.

    55 house of pain gave up David Johnson 
    IFM gave up tevin Coleman, a 2018 1st and three 2018 2nds

  9. Just wrapping up our rookie draft - here are some trades that went down.  The third one is the one I'd like to hear feedback on.  Not involved in these.

    • 55 House of Pain gave up Year 2017 Draft Pick 1.11;Year 2017 Draft Pick 2.08;Year 2017 Draft Pick 4.08
    • Fat Axl gave up Year 2017 Draft Pick 1.08



    This next one was made with 1.05 on the clock - IFM wanted to get Cook and Williams.  Drafted Williams with 1.05, cook went 1.06


    With Cook gone, he moved down again

    • I Fellate Myself gave up Year 2017 Draft Pick 1.07
    • Fat Axl gave up Lynch, Marshawn OAK RB; Year 2017 Draft Pick 1.11

    and again..

    • I Fellate Myself gave up Year 2017 Draft Pick 1.11;Year 2017 Draft Pick 2.04
    • Fighting Cotons gave up Year 2017 Draft Pick 1.12;Year 2017 Draft Pick 2.01

    he took Curtis Samuel at 1.12, then moved 2.01 for...  

    • The Great #### gave up Year 2018 Round 2 Draft Pick from The Great ####;Year 2018 Round 2 Draft Pick from 55 House of Pain
    • I Fellate Myself gave up Year 2017 Draft Pick 2.01

    and called it a day after this blockbuster...

    Okay...so what IS he worth?

    It is hard to say if Pryor's value has gone up or down after landing in Washington.  On the surface it seems like an improvement, but the uncertainty with Cousins and the 1 year deal and the fact that he didn't command a lot of $$ on the open market all make me a bit skeptical that he'll build upon what he did last year.  On top of that, he is about to turn 28 which limits his dynasty value a little.  All things considered I'd be selling if I could get a late first and buying for a mid 2nd.  1.12 sounds about right to me.

    His TD's sucked last year and weren't much better his first two years. But 700 yards in 13 games is pretty good at TE. For me, he's a buy low if I didn't already have 4 TE's on the roster

    I agree that he's a good buy low, especially if Boldin doesn't return.
