  1. Past hour
  2. It's really hard to watch the NFLN, esp that "All about Nate Burleson" show in the am. I do like in that article about how we value TE's and how important they are in the RPO's and how DP's been evolutionalising it. Before the play is even called, the poor LB is already wrong 50% of the time, then after lining up if the QB adjusts the play the LB really can only guess. It's a copycat league and we've lost players/coaches who are now instructing their new teams on the ins and outs - esp the gnats.
  3. Today
  4. I have not watched it at all, did Nick Foles make the list

    [News] Early Thinking On Some Roster Battles To Watch

    Not sure if anyone has been following the top 100 list this year...But about to enter the top 10 and still no Wentz....He has to be on the list and he had an amazing season seems like the players would agree also if they are placing him in the top 10 players of last year(honestly no bias here from me either before he got hurt you could make the case he was the best player last year)

    [News] Early Thinking On Some Roster Battles To Watch

    Will be interesting if and how this could change in a couple of years...Mainly looking at the CB position right now we are blessed in a way to have such young CB talent all on rookie deals but how will that change when we have to pay them????? I know some have mentioned that a guy like Mills could possibly covert to S could that be something we look at in the next couple of years if we decide to let McCleod or Jenkins go???? We love our S to have CB backgrounds so having guys that start out as CBs for us then transition to S would seem to make some sense Paying a guy top of the S market is hell of a lot cheaper then having to pay a CB top market dollar

    The year after Manning left they dumped all their high contracts and better talent so that they could tank only player they kept was a 35 year old Reggie Wayne coming off an injury.

    [News] Early Thinking On Some Roster Battles To Watch

    Yeah that is a good read and I feel it's where Howie and the team are just ahead of the curve right now. Like taking a second round pick next year... Howie and his team know we have roster holes coming up. But they also know that this team is good enough to win now. So why not take an extra second round pick next year? Address some holes that are going to appear. Especially in a draft, next year, that fits better with our needs or so it seems. It's that kind of forward thinking that helps us build a roster stacked with talent. Not just one or two stars. And it's going to be the kind of thinking we need when Wentz gets his big pay day.

    If that's true then why have they been so bad since he went down injured?

    Andrew Luck

    Eh. I think his season avg in years he played is like 9-6 or so. Not exactly stellar considering the hype. The Colts were a playoff team 9 straight years before Manning got hurt. Then they tank, pick a new QB, and go back to the playoffs. So basically, he inherited a playoff team.
  11. Wow, how'd I miss that ? Guess I better read about something besides the Eagles. Boring, but perhaps necessary...
  12. Steven Wilks is the Cardinals head coach, Arians retired at the end of last season.
  13. This is probably Bellicheck's final season, and Brady's. The Pokes are looking at a 7-9 finish, and Garrett is probably going to LA. (Chargers OC) Tomlinson is probably going to get axed after the Steelers finish 9-7. The smart Harbaugh is probably done in Baltimore this year. May go to Cleveland... Bruce Arians is facing a prove-it season, depending on how he plays his Cards. Marvin Lewis may indeed get fired this year, but Vance Joseph will fill his duties as vampire from here out.

    Which Team Can Go From Worst To First In 2018?

    This had my attention last year, too. Eagles have their work cut out for them, facing 7 playoff teams in the reg season schedule with strong passing games. Better CB's and better LB's competing for roster spots this year - but - this is still the perceived weakness opponents will target. NYG are the Eagles only real rival in the Div, and Barkley's run attack will keep the Giants passing game alive. They will be very hard to get off the field this year. Of the Worst-2-First hopefuls, Jets 5-11 --> 6-10 this yearBrowns 0-16 --> 4-12 Texans 4-12 --> 11-5 if Watson stays healthyBroncos 5-11 --> 9-7Giants 3-13 -->10-6 with a great O and a below-par DBears 5-11 --> 8-8 Bucs 5-11 --> 7-9Niners 6-10 --> 10-6, maybe 11-5, depends in D performance Think the Jags will slip to 11-5? I doubt that. Think the Rams will finish weak? Me too. Think the AFC West is up for grabs? Chiefs will grab it. Think the Eagles won't repeat? They will. Worst to First is a daydream this year.

    I was rooting for him to get back. It'd be a shame if he wasn't able to return

    He did retire, there's no 'if' about it.

    FYP Edit: Foles most likely will be starting in September regardless of what the reports say. Wentz will probably be back starting in October.

    Jerry Jones paid for his own stadium. That makes him the #1 owner in the NFL, IMO. Obviously, Mara has always been a class act. I only know Tisch from Shark Tank.

    Dude... I know its hard because we have never been in this spot before with the football team... but like other teams in this city.... the mindset changes when you are defending champs and actually have a good chance to repeat. You don't rock the boat. You don't worry about a punter/holder down the road. The few reports that have been on this guy basically says he has been not as good as Jones. Regardless... when you know what you have and it works... really well.... not the right time to change. If Dave is telling us the truth .... not just that he retired... we know that, but that the idea was his and not the team suggesting it, then fine. If the team pushed for this change... doesn't seem like the smartest thing. Only one bad play at the wrong time ... shank, bad hold... and it could be disaster.

    Punter/Holder

    Ok it's a fair comment... But if the team really like Johnston then it makes sense to go with him? Because he could be a really good punter for us for years to come.
  24. joemas6

    Punter/Holder

    ?????? Dude was solid. If he retired... like Dave says, then fine. If they were squeezing $$$ because they were too greedy to cut Tory Smith instead of wasting that trade to where it didn't count as getting us under the cap before the season started... same with Vinny Curry. Then kinda suggesting him to lean towards retirement wasn't a good idea. They have cap space now, to me a no-brainer that he would still be the punter if he didn't retire/get pushed in that direction. Best punter I've seen in 40 years of being a fan and pretty good holder too. For a team looking to repeat, saving a few nickels to get younger doesn't make sense at this point... in other words, its EXACTLY NOT the right time to make a switch.

    Jerry Jones does all those things, but at least he knows how to run a business. The Redskins are one of the most poorly run franchises in the league, and Snyder is notorious for exploiting his fanbase.

    Yes they are... Hence why what Luck did with that team is pretty darn incredible.

    If so, hopefully the Colts figure it out early into training camp so Howie can fleece them in a Nick Foles deal.

    1987 replacement players will receive Super Bowl rings

    Yeah, I loved that. One of my friends from high school went to a Redskins Training Camp back when Green was still playing. She said that he was a jerk. I don't remember all of what she told me as to why he was a jerk, but she was a big fan of his until that day. As for the replacements getting rings, I think they deserved them. Jack Kent Cooke was generally a good owner, from what I remember, but on this issue I think he dropped the ball. They should have gotten rings back then. Kudos to them for doing the right thing.
