    Chargers Potential Move to London is messed up

    If the Chargers really want to go "international" they should try Canada first. Specifically, Vancouver would make more sense than Toronto if they're planning on staying in the AFC West. Sure, the NFL fans in that region may currently skew towards the Seahawks due to geography, but I'd imagine that the local fans would be all over having an NFL franchise of their own instead of just rooting for the BC Lions of the CFL. Plus, you'll probably see a domino effect of Canadian NFL fans east of Vancouver wanting to support their new "national" NFL team. The Chargers could end up carving out a nice niche for themselves in Canada, much in the same way the Toronto Raptors have in the NBA. All they would be missing then is a celebrity superfan ambassador to hype up the team, like Drake does for the Raptors. Ryan Reynolds? This makes way more sense than moving the team to London.

    Cam to IR. Foles gets the Nod.

    Minshew looks like he has a bright future in the league and could very well be the Jags long-term starter after Foles. Not to sound negative with regards to Nick Foles, but I have a feeling he isn't going to still be a starting QB in his late 30s-early 40s. He's the greatest backup QB of all time and of course an Eagle legend, but I think at some point between now and the end of the 2022 season the Jags make the switch to Minshew or even someone else given Foles injury history and age. Foles was supposed to be a win-now signing for a team led by a defense with championship aspirations. I don't think the Jaguars made this signing with the expectation that they found their franchise QB of the next 10 years. Maybe they did, who knows? The Panthers have an opportunity to get out of Cam's contract next year and get a QB that owner David Tepper desires. GM Marty Hurney was there when Cam was selected 1st overall in 2011 so he might push for them to stick with Cam, but I have a feeling the owner will push for someone new that is his choice.
  3. If Gase gets fired, he's going to have to settle for an OC job at his next NFL stop, or maybe join a team as a consultant or something like that. The Eagles might be interested, since Gase was supposedly one of the guys the team interviewed for the HC spot before giving the job to Doug Pederson. If this team manages to sneak in to the playoffs as a wild-card or even just miss out at 9-7 or 8-8, I don't know if we'll see Groh let go from the team. Our best hope might be to hope the team is smart enough to at least bring in someone to be a "offensive consultant", if not outright replace Groh.
  4. Well Gruden would be great but I would imagine he is going to get HC consideration despite being fired as the Redskins HC. I can also see Gruden joining the Rams or 49ers as a consultant and reunite with either McVay or Shanahan. The two guys that would make realistic sense for the Eagles are Matt Nagy and Pat Shurmur, although the latter probably bought himself more time with Daniel Jones and is less likely to get fired this year. Both guys have past history with the Eagles and Doug Pederson so the connection is there.
  5. The Falcons would actually be a good spot for Jay Gruden if they want someone with prior HC experience. He'd be able to get the most out of Matt Ryan and the offense. If he can make Kirk Cousins and the Redskins look decent, imagine what he could do with a legit QB + Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Austin Hooper!

    Rams send Aqib Talib and a pick to Dolphins

    This trade only makes sense if it's an NBA style deal, where the Rams are giving up better assets just to get cap relief. If the Dolphins are getting a 5th rounder as well, that means they should only be sending a 6th or 7th rounder. If so, this is definitely a savvy move for a team that is obviously tanking. Just leave him on IR and take the pick.

    Trade Deadline Discussion

    Good call, I guess we're better off letting Agholor finish his season here. The Browns supposedly are interested in Big V as a backup plan to upgrade at OT if they can't land Trent Williams. Big V for Antonio Callaway sounds like a fair deal since V is on an expiring contract, but has proven more (Super Bowl starter at LT) whereas Callaway has the potential to be a stud with his speed but has been buried on the depth chart because of off the field issues. The off the field issues are certainly a concern but outside of acquiring a guy with an extensive injury history (which we've done more than enough times under Howie Roseman recently), you probably won't get a prospect like this at a lower cost.

    Sanu to Pats for a 2nd

    The Patriots love their Rutgers players (Devin McCourty, Duron Harmon, Logan Ryan, etc...) No surprise here. Supposedly they tried to make a move during the draft but the Falcons declined. I guess they decided overpaying was better than not getting the guy they wanted.

    Rams acquire Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey

    Good points, I was not aware of how their contracts were structured specifically. In that case, the Rams are stuck for the foreseeable future.

    Rams acquire Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey

    Gurley and Cooks aren't going to be in the long-term plans. They can find a poor-man's deep threat to complement Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp in free agency. The Rams can always run a RBBC with Malcom Brown, Darrell Henderson, and a 3rd RB acquired through the draft.

    Micheal Bennett Suspended by Pats

    The unnamed coach is Bret Bielema, the Patriots DL coach and former Arkansas HC. Your suspicions about Bennett are correct, the disagreement is about his usage on the D-line. Argument with Bret Bielema

    Trade Deadline Discussion

    Underrated need. As stated by other posters in various threads, the failed draft picks have finally caught up to the team. You can't plug in every hole with a veteran player forever, eventually it gets too costly, or the player gets old and injury prone. This team definitely needs some "band-aid" veterans in the interim (or Jalen Ramsey if he's actually on the block) before they can rectify this in the 2020 draft.

    Jay Gruden let go...

    Some guys are great coordinators but not necessarily great head coaches. Jay Gruden seems to fall into that category, not that there's anything wrong with that, especially since we've experienced success with Jim Schwartz at DC. Then again, we have Mike Groh who is better suited at WR coach than offensive coordinator. I think Gruden would actually be a good addition to the Eagles staff as a "senior advisor" to the offense, basically to give Doug another experienced play caller and fill the role that Frank Reich had as the Eagles OC (assuming he doesn't get offered another HC job right away). The Eagles should gladly let another team poach Groh for their coaching staff as HC this offseason (if a team is foolish enough). He can take Duce Staley with him too as OC.

    Uncle Rico and Napoleon Dynamite

    This may or may not be more suited for Rant N'Rave but It's only fitting that the QB that now has the nickname Uncle Rico (Gardner Minshew) is on the same team as Nick Foles. Before Foles became the legend that is BDN, there were memes about his resemblance to Napoleon Dynamite. Jaguars fans should be so proud. Random factoid:

    CB trade this week?

    Harris could be the most "available" of the three as the Broncos are 0-4 and could start trading away their veterans that aren't going to be in the team's long-term plan. It would be similar to the Golden Tate trade where you have a talented veteran on an expiring deal, who isn't going to be re-signed by is current team. I don't see the Broncos getting more than a 3rd for Harris, which could be a more palatable price tag compared to what the Jaguars want for Ramsey (supposedly turned down offer of two 1st round picks). Xavien Howard might be the one high profile player that the Dolphins aren't willing to trade, since they just made him the highest paid CB in the league not too long ago. Then again, I certainly didn't expect them to actually trade Laremy Tunsil or Minkah Fitzpatrick either when the rumors first broke out.
