    League reveals slate for "NFL100 Game of the Week"

    Probably because certain teams are not scheduled to play each other. Chargers-Dolphins are the teams that played in what I still consider the greatest game in NFL history, the 41-38 Charger win in what was one of the most emotional games as well.

    Giants fans... Talk about the Giants

    This brings up an interesting question... what is the monetary value of a 1st round pick? They got a 1st and a 3rd for him. The value of letting him walk before 2018 would be a 3rd round comp pick. So, they basically netted an extra 1st. By my count, this pick cost the Giant ($17.5 million) - (2018 operating revenue generated solely by Beckham). Conventional wisdom was that it was dumb to sign him. Is it actually dumb to spend 7 or 8 figures on a 1st rounder?

    What is Chucky up to?

    I don't think it is necessary for them to trade up for a QB. They have an average one. Why trade away your capital when you're only going to hit on two of the three if you're LUCKY... they should sit tight and either pick the best player or trade down for even more picks. Best opportunity to hit on players in the draft isn't to have the highest pick, it is to have the most picks.

    This was more about my grade on Jacobs over the RB I preferred....I just see the grades on Jacobs and Sony as about the same....See Sony as the better pure rusher but think Jacobs brings more of an all around game

    What is Chucky up to?

    493 people are talking about this Twitter Ads info and privacy Now what exactly would a surprise pick be? Could it be doing whatever it takes to add quarterback Kyler Murray? Maybe they have their eyes on another QB like Missouri's Drew Lock, who a recent mock draft had the Raiders taking via a trade with the 49ers. If the surprise will be in fact a signal-caller, Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins could be an option, as the Raiders reportedly are "super impressed" with the former Buckeye. Mayock said in January he wants to create an open building with transparency between coaches and scouts, with everyone pulling in the same direction. Perhaps that means more employees of his and Gruden's liking than anyone else's. The Raiders' draft room will be busy come Thursday night, though it might be a little more empty than usual. The scouts who were sent home could soon be looking for new jobs. "For a lot of them there isn't a reason to come back because they're going to have significant turnover if the draft room," Rapoport said. "And a lot of those guys who left, Hold onto your seats, Thursday can't come soon enough. Dave Gettleman will I'm sure be off the hook if say the Raiders traded up to 2 to get Haskins.

    I agree with the first part. I think they have a stud waiting at 25 and 53. That guy that falls that is high on our board. 57 is easier to give up. 53 we get that guy that falls to us. I’m talking like top 30 on our Board. The price would be higher this year than most for that trade. Have to **** away.

    I’d go with Sony. I doubt we’d go RB much early but Sony slipped a bit. We almost fell into it.

    The case for the other positions long term. RB- Howard is on a 1 year deal could possibly pay to return or let him walk and recoup a comp pick....Clement hasn’t shown he can be a lead guy....So getting a guy that can be the lead back and be on a rook deal makes sense WR- Alshon is 29 was hurt all of 2017(though he played through it) and missed time because of the injury in 18....Djax is 33 so only a short term guy.....AG seems to be out the door....Hollins flashed little as a rook showed he can play STs but that is it missed all of last year rest of the guys have shown nothing. So could easily see a WR taken high to bring along slowly to take over a starting role soon as possibly next year(if not sooner injuries possible AG trade etc.) OL/DL- honestly think we have discussed these two groups in depth numerous times LB- Bradham is essentially the only proven guys and he isn’t a spring chicken CB- Plenty of youth but not much has been shown out of the group on top of that losing 3 guys(possibly 3 starters) in FA at the end of the year in Darby/Mills/LeBlanc S- another position we have talked plenty about so not much needed to say here

    Playing catch up a little but wow! I’m assuming a big contract follows but this is a guy obviously worthy. Young beast pass rusher...just didn’t think Seattle was going to let him go.

    Pretty much only see 4 positions on the Eagles that we could probably say are good short and long term... TE- have arguably the best TE in the game in Ertz and a second year player that flashed in Geodart K- Elliot still young been pretty good his first two years made some clutch kicks and should only keep getting better and more consistent. P- Johnston another young STer who did extremely well in his first year pretty sure he set a franchise record in some punting category QB- goal is for Wentz to be our guy hopefully next decade plus not going to be aiming to draft his replacement anytime soon After these 4 can make a case for drafting every other position fairly high

    Robert Kraft Arrested....

    Judge: Kraft day spa video to be released after case resolved
  17. Don't do that ... don't look at 2019 need... its not how they are going to draft. Best thing is to look at the roster, how they prioritize building a roster, and look at the youth at those positions. We need it pretty much everywhere... this idea of just getting the LB to fill out the 2019 roster isn't a good one when it comes to building a roster. Draft picks are supposed to be for long term, not year 1 impact. They may take one if they feel its the best option for the long term. Don't over analyze this. Nope... they aren't going to do that.
  18. Yes absolutely! But I am suggesting we have every reason to use the EXTRA picks in rounds 4,5,6 (by my assessment), as ammo to get a third rounder and then do not worry about picking beyond the 3rd.
  19. Which brings me to this point... We really only have ONE glaring 22 NEED, and that is a stud LB beside Bradham... Everything else in the starting 22 is rock solid by mid season... 3 ST slots... that leaves us with the 27 remaining slots of what we are actually discussing... I can make a great argument for not looking for replacements on 22 of them, so from my perspective we are only talking about 5 positions that really will be break in slots, and everything else should be forward looking into the future. THAT all does not even factor in the people already on the roster that will perform above all of our expectations. I say all of this to say this... Howie and Joe are ROCK STARS and none of us saw reason for this type of optimism 4 years ago.
  20. I think you are overthinking a little. You get the best guys you can in the draft and go from there. We can add everywhere.
  21. Here is the dillema I see... We have a very deep 52 man roster... ultimately that is all that matters... SO where in the draft do you find those transition points in the 52.. ARE WE at a point that the later part of the draft have slimmer and slimmer chance of breaking into the roster... Are we at a point that we will only have our top 3 or 4 picks stick?
  22. I'm looking to add everywhere. These next two drafts are essential to build the roster past the era of ... Peters, Kelce, Brooks, Graham, Curry, DeSean, Jenkins, Bradham ...etc. Get me players that will stick, then I can keep building.... selecting the wrong players who won't be on the roster or be effective is my only concern. Otherwise, just get me some players in here.
  23. How about Kevin Kolb deal.... that was a steal wasn't it ? (me being sarcastic) .... waiting 5 years to get a pick in hte same round to me isn't great value ... I hope we don't look to draft now for value we could get in 2024
  24. Knowing that this might be Kelce's last season, who would you add at C
  25. I totally agree, BUT DAMN would it be nice to get another Sam Bradford deal!
  26. I say no ... its not basketball where you draft the player first then make the trade.... in the NFL you trade the pick. If Lock is the QB in demand... then teams will look to trade up for our pick.. similar to what Baltimore did last year. That's why you work the phones. This King's ransom is going to be similar to the value we got for tagging and trading Foles. It won't exist. So you try to trade the pick if you can... if not, then you draft the player that you want.
