    Daks Agent wants $34m per year

    Dallas and Prescott will come to a contract agreement that is a little higher than Wentz's. With the roster they put together, Dallas can't afford to D around with their starter and Prescott can be controlled for 3 years (1 under contract, 2 possible years with franchise tag). So they both have incentives to get it done. Prescott is a good QB.......Linehan was a bonehead OC, but Kellen Moore may not be much better. Plus if Moore is installing a new offense, that may take some time to develop during the regular season. Anyway, The cowpies are not going to let Prescott go, nor should they.....and Prescott's agent knows he not getting $34 mill a year. This will be settled by training camp.

    All Time QB rankings... Do championships matter?

    I know this is media and internet fodder, but there are way too many variables to simply look at one or two categories and determine the best QB of all time. And in addition, the different rules and eras make it very difficult to compare. Today, a 300 yard game is very common....simply because a QB can stand back there and he knows he shouldn't be hit and his receivers can't be touched. Most of the rule changes promote offense. Statistically, Joe Namath wasn't a HOF.....some could even argue that he got in because he played in NY. Marino was a great QB, but average or below in the 18 playoff games he played. And these type of facts go on and one with all of them. Bradshaw had the benefit year after year of the best defense in the league giving him the ball on short field and having HOF skill players around him. Favre was a stat building mistake machine who could be incredible.....or ridiculously careless. And his playoff record is average. The point is that when doing a complete evalutation, you can't just award points for a super bowl win, when that QB may have been lousy in his team's win. Roethlisburger was horrible in his first super bowl, which the steelers won. So was Dilfer..... Eventuall, somebody will do some kind of deep analysis and come up with a "best QB"......but that will just lead to more debate.

    Goodell reiterates desire to shorten 4-game preseason

    With the emphasis so much on offensive games and the NFL becoming a "passing league", along with rule changes that support offense, the league really needs to go to the college OT structure. There's just too much pressure on a defense to keep the current scenario. I can't believe that with all the input from coaches, GMs and the players union that this issue remains the way it is. I think Goodell has done more to change the game in a bad way then anything else......

    Is Tyreek Hill's career over?

    I doubt the NFL will get serious about this kind of abuse until the law does. When you hit a woman or a child with such violence to break bones or other injuries, it should be mandatory 6 months to a year in a federal prison, with the general population. You can require counseling or whatever, but prison time should be required. Until then, the NFL will look at these guys as "assets" and will only walk a fine line to appear to be doing "something" while hedging their bet to let the guy continue his career.
  5. Witten was terrible but booger mcfarland is a downright joke......he sounds like the big mouth at the bar babbling louder than the TV.........I guess I'll keep the sound down again this year....

    AAF Officially Dead , 2 weeks before end of season.

    In NFL Europe, they had guys who "owned" by certain NFL teams. If NFL teams just put up their practice squads that would give the "development" league 320 to choose from......there are a number of ways to do it. NFL teams could regionally share a team.....

    AAF Officially Dead , 2 weeks before end of season.

    I don't understand why the NFL doesn't embrace this league and financially support it.....the development aspect of it was proven in NFL Europe. It adds another dimension to talent availability and development.

    NFL Win Totals

    If the eagles Oline can get back to some health and consistency, the eagles win at least 11 games. Wentz will be at full strength with a deep threat and a power back......in addition to the weapons he already has...... The defense has some question marks at LB.....but with McLeod, Darby, Barnett, MIlls and Jones coming back from injury, the addition of Malik Jackson and hopefully, Josh Sweat develops, the defense is going to be tough again. Plus maybe some drafted talent can contribute.....

    Brees is actually OVERRATED

    These are the stupidest arguments I've ever heard. Arm strength?? LMFAO......who give a flying f--- about arm strength if the ball gets there? His numbers speak for themselves.....if anything, you're argument proves that arm strength is a minimal concern. Dome stats?? QBR is ridiculously inefficient measurement of a QB.......and every QB plays better in a dome and on turf. Again, stupid argument. And, of course, the old "product of the system" argument that's always used by morons to explain away a QBs success. Your last paragragh is just too stupid to address. Remember, it's better to be thought a fool, then to open your mouth and remove all doubt. With this post, you have removed the last shred of doubt that you're an idiot.

    Was Super Bowl LIII Fixed?

    Of course they were, they were the offseason signing champ......free agents, trades.....they were most active. But they have almost no quality depth, and that defense was way overrated and their season long stats proved it. Every year, there's that one team that goes 13-3 or 12-4 but they really aren't that tough. That's the rams. I bet they don't even make the playoffs next year.

    Was Super Bowl LIII Fixed?

    With all the sh-- the NFL has stepped in lately, the idiotic anthem protests, the inconsistent personal conduct policy, the poor officiating, the ridiculous player protection penalties among other things, the last thing they need is to fix a super bowl.....and get caught. Sometimes a team gets to the super bowl who simply shouldn't have.......the rams were one of them. Not because of a missed call, but because they really aren't that good. I'd be surprised if they make the playoffs next year. And if any super bowl was fixed, sooner rather than later, somebody would talk or write a book about it and cash in.

    Super Bowl LIII: Rams vs Patriots.

    Yes, they all have to deal with injuries. It's the number of injuries that alter a season. And Hunt wasn't hurt, he was suspended for personal conduct. And gurley being hurt is exactly why a RB by committee is a way better way to go. 4 versatile RBs who can do any number of things instead of one workhorse.

    Sean McVay: I got out-coached

    Gurley was hurt? So what? With the amount of injuries the eagles have endured the last 2 years, I don't want to hear about teams dealing with injuries. Too f----- bad that the rams top RB was hurt. Try losing your top 3 RBs. The rams have ZERO quality depth.

    Should the NFL go to a draft lottery?

    If the NBA wanted to reverse tanking, the draft order would be based on: Take the 14 worst teams in the league at the end of the season (lottery teams now) and reverse the order in which they finished. Take the first 5 teams and have a 5 team lottery. Then take the other 9 and have a lottery. No differences in number of ping pong balls. The worst 9 teams in the league still have a chance at a top 10 pick.

    Super Bowl LIII: Rams vs Patriots.

    The only thing I took away from this game was that if the eagles didn't suffer a ridiculous amount of injuries this year, they would have repeated. I'm convinced. And that's a shame, because teams repeating doesn't happen too often. And this year, there's going to be a lot of personnel changes.
