    I'm not gonna quote everyone giving me grief about ranking Wentz 13th all I'm going to say is if I can't count on you not being injured come playoff time their are better QBs imo. I have the same concerns for Rodgers but I think he is a better QB, Luck has had 1 injury that he missed significant time and Watson I like more as an all around play maker but definitely have injury concerns going forward.

    In games that end with a less then a TD margin Carson is We weren't grading on skill alone if we were Brady probably wouldn't be in the top 10. There is way more to the game than just skill. One of them like it or not is health. You can't win the superbowl if you're on the bench of course you still get a ring but you don't get credit for it.

    And Wentz without his team around him is nothing as well. Plus Dak has proven to be healthy and Wentz hasn't. I take a QB on the field before one on the sidelines almost every time.

    First off durability was a factor in the ratings. I had Stafford, Prescott and Newton plus the 10 already mentioned.

    We couldn't swap Graham this year next year is the year he could be traded. If we brought in Ngakoue I doubt he would be a backup 29.5 sacks in 3 years is not 3rd DE numbers. They make Graham's numbers look bad. Graham averages under 4.5 sacks a year and was a backup most his career. His last 3 years he has had 19 sacks and 47 QB hits 5 FF 38 TFL. Compared to Ngakoue 29.5 sacks 70 QB hits 10 FF and 29 TFL. He has also started every game except his 1st game as a rookie. Graham has only started 16 games twice in his career.

    I think I had him 14th when I made my list.

    I think I did have him as a 4th rd pick. Boy was I wrong there lol. Especially for the value I think we got a steal of a player. I'm pulling for the kid.

    Is that when healthy you put him there or even with his injuries you put him there?

    That's my boy I had us drafting him then I picked him to be a UDFA. I'm sticking with him I hope he has great things in store for him.

    No kidding where is his concern for the sweat shop workers that get paid peanuts to work all day in horrible work conditions that get beat or not fed/paid if they make mistakes or don't work fast enough. I believe that was exactly what was going on to the slaves in America, that he is now saying that a Flag that had nothing to do with it is a symbol of oppression.

    I think it is completely ridiculous them pulling the Betsy Ross American Flag shoes because they are a reminder of "oppression" to African Americans. I think it should be a reminder of how far our country has come. We are 1 of 28 countries in the world that do not have some form of slavery. Out of the 195 countries 167 of them still have slavery. Racism will always exist it is a very unfortunate thing but it will never go away. White, black, yellow, purple or green I don't care. There will always be people that don't see eye to eye. We have a choice on how we handle it though. We can turn the other cheek or we can fight it. We can teach our kids to be better people and move on or we can teach them to fight and keep stirring the same pot that has been stirring for generations. If you show a bully he has no power over you, he will move on. It is the reaction he thrives on and if you don't give him the reaction he wants he will get bored. If you fuel his fire though it burns brighter and stronger and can get out of control.

    Howie is also a numbers guy and he wouldn't have made a contract with an option like that in year 2 if he didn't think it possible to be only a 1 year deal. I'm not saying we will but their is that option.

    Nvm I read it wrong it will be 0 cap savings and 13 million cap hit I hate how some of these sites have things displayed. I should stick to OTC for my cap questions. If we trade him though it is a 10 million cap savings post June 1st.

    He is the player that's threatening to hold out if he doesn't get a new deal also. Next year we could cut/trade Graham with a post June 1st designation and he would count nothing against the cap. Making it a clean transition so it doesn't hurt us in the process and gives him a year in our system to learn it before being forced to be the complete starter and could work him in slowly.
