  1. I don't think he is a bust.  That's a bit premature.  Like the pick and if the 2 back set helps him do what he did last week and he stops the east west nonsense, he certainly will be a win instead of a bust.  We do need to keep Howard too though as Sanders is definitely not a bruising back.

    I suggested these three .because The Broncos and Bengals aren’t going anywhere...and there been reports about the Eagles interest in Von Miller and Harris, AJ Green has been hurt quite a bit and is 30. He might be affordable.I have read about us having inquired about these guys . As far as Josh Gordon we have NEVER had any luck with X Patriot players ...though Gordon was a player that I wanted from his Cleveland days . Patriot players leave for more money before they return to the team. I just don’t trust those x Patsies.

    As in any must be a given.... Peterson / Groh did not utilize  Golden Tate last year he did not fit or we couldn’t figure out how to get the best out of Tate.   A fair offer anymore these days is the most Capital a team is willing to give up. Patriots gave up a #2 for Sanu ? I wouldn think at best... Sunu was worth a fourth...This Has been a point of Discussion with me about our valuation of players. Howie built a reputation as a deal maker, the last few big name players Cooper, Ramsey etc have slipped threw our fingers I get the logic on how we prefer to deal. The script has changed teams are using Howie’s old script against us.  

    We keep getting second tier players...we will put a mediocre team on the field. I love the job Howie has done but things have changed . Teams are not as easily fleeced. Bottom line You get what you pay for and it is gonna cost more than what we are willing to spend Howie gotta step up and win some of these deals.



    Great points.  I would say that Assante Samuel was the exception to the ex-Patriots players that did well here.

  3. With all of the injuries throughout the league, this is another opportunity for me to throw out the idea that the league should increase roster size while keeping keeping the salary cap.  I would think that it should be extended to 100 players per team.  The logic is that it would bring down overall salaries (that are completely out of hand) and force coaches to do more substitutions during the games.  This would decrease the amount of injuries and make the game a little more strategic.

  4. Remember Doug saying before the season started that this was the most talented team he has ever coached?  Looks like there could be a problem with the coach if this team is more talented than the Super Bowl team.  THAT was a team playing inspired football above their talent level.  I'll take that any day over unused or underused talent.

  5. Here’s how Jim Schwartz pass defenses have ranked dating back to 2009.


    2009: 32nd (265 ypg)
    2010: 17th (217 ypg)
    2011: 28th (254 ypg)
    2012: 14th: (223 ypg)
    2013: 23rd (251 ypg)
    2014 (BUF): 3rd (205.8 ypg)
    2016 (PHI): 13th (239 ypg)
    2017: 25th (241.8 ypg)
    2018: 30th (271.2 ypg)
    2019 (through 6 games): 28th (280 ypg)


    This tells you all you need to know.  At least he is consistent...  bad consistent.

    BTW, Redskin fans should be furious that this soon to be 3-13 team didn't flay the Texans for draft capital by trading Williams.  Skins have to be the most demoralized team in the NFL heading into week 1.  I keep trying to imagine how they can upset us and I just can't do it.

    I think the Dolphins are more upset followed closely by the Browns.

  7. It nice to keep reading that his speed is still there so it should really open up the passing game for Wentz and benefit the running game by having the defense play back a little more to respect his speed.  If Wentz can get the timing down with DeSean and hit him in stride,  there could be a lot of pretty touchdowns in our future.

    I call BS on this. Fans weren't "fearing"!!! The media created an issue without ANY quotes form Jenkins. As fans we wouldn't have thought a thing of him simply skipping VOLUNTARY workouts, but the media injected a contract dispute as a component and that was WITHOUT ANY QUOTES FROM JENKINS. 

    Great points Rob.  Let's run some unsubstantiated stories without even talking to the player.  I've now seen both sides of this being reported and won't consider this a story until we hear from Jenkins. 

    Still not sure why players are signing contracts without performance bonuses and then holding out for a "raise" or to renegotiate the contract because of their performance.  Not sure if Jenkins is actually in this category but it annoyed me when T.O. did it.  It's like signing a contract to lease a vehicle.  The vehicle has no repair needed after a year so it stops running until you pay the dealership more on the lease.

    Yeah... except I'm saying that you don't really need elite level play at RB... and that's what the data from the last 20 years has shown.  Again, I'm not saying bad play is ok ... just that elite play at RB is not needed.  

    I'm also saying I son't think its coincidence over this period of time... too much data.    I'm not arguing that its not the teams bukt around the QBs that are better than the ones built around the RBs either.    Maybe its easier to build around the QB?  IDK.   But I just don't think its coincidence, and therefore, I wouldn't worry about getting an elite, having to pay that elite RB, and forcing him to carry the workload and having the offense rely on him so much.  Basically, everything that comes with building your offense around an elite RB.  It just hasn't produced alot of team success the last 20 years... for whatever reason.  

    I agree that if building a team around an "elite" RB is your goal, you will probably never see a superbowl and that it is easier if you do it with an "elite" QB, but you can have the most elite QB in the world and if the team around him sucks, that team will remain at the bottom or mediocre at best.  It's the team as a whole that needs to gel and exceed their typical performance that wins SB's.
