Post by: Jay on March 04, 2015, 05:32:22 PM
Discuss off-season changes, drafting and the upcoming season.

Let's see if the Pats can repeat as SuperBowl Champions :)

Reckon they could get a high pick for Dez, clear some cap room and maybe bring in AP and a couple other big FA names?

And who needs Dez when you have these guys :P

At least you didn't trade away your best player and quite possibly the best RB in the NFL who has been compared to a once in a generation talent in Barry Sanders for a guy coming off an ACL surgery. Chip has a hard on for Oregon players and I can see him pulling a Harbaugh and running back to college for cash after this season. He already threatened to do it for total control which saw Howie demoted. I am seriously getting to the point of F Chip Kelly. If he mortgages the farm for Mariota we will be screwed for a long time....

He wanted to take Taylor Hart in the 3rd before Howie talked him out of it and he ended up getting him in the 5th. At that spot he ended up taking Josh Huff (another Duck) who isn't exactly lighting the world on fire. You might as well call them the Philadelphia Ducks by May. If he goes all out to get Mariota I can't see it working well.

Cutting Herremans was stupid. Yes we need to get younger at O-line and I have said it all off-season, I wouldn't be upset if O-line was Philly's first pick, but Herremans was your most versatile lineman and only counted for 2 mill against the cap. Next season he is gone because that number jumps to 6 but to do it this year was stupid. Cole was open to restructuring and was critical to the veteran leadership on D. Losing that leadership killed them last time around when they let go of Dawkins, it also looks like DeMeco Ryans will be the next casualty which I think most were expecting, but again, veteran leadership and a great locker room presence.

Guys like Williams, Fletcher and Casey were expected. Casey was getting some ridiculous amount of cash for someone that is playing 6 snaps a season on offense. Fletcher is useless and Williams is all talk no ball. Now we have so many holes and not filling the positions gradually.

What is worse, Shady had openly said he was willing to restructure if money was the issue. First DJax, now this. Just wow

Because of how elusive he is he rarely takes big hits. Turf toe isn't exactly career threatening. I laugh at all the people saying it is Chips system that made him good when he played for Fat Man and ran for 17 TD's, the most of his career, in an Andy Reid offense.

159 tackles, 2 sacks, 4 picks and an FF in his rookie season, was the best defensive rookie of 2013. Had 22 tackles in one game, he's a bona fide stud linebacker when fit, like Urlacher mixed with Levy.

I would say he has one more season before we see the steep decline that you generally do in RB's. He is a bruiser so he will have the extra wear and tear but I guess those couple of seasons in Buffalo where they refused to use him might help

It also looks like they have an in principle agreement with Maxwell but lost out on McCourty and Maclin leaving 2 huge holes to go along with many others. If Chip does go all out for Mariota the team is plain screwed

Philly from what I've seen, don't really follow opposing WRs anyway, which is what Maxwell does. Seems an odd fit for the style of defense they played last season.

While Philly do play one side of the field, similarly to Seattle, they also play a lot of man and leave their CB's on an island with no help, Seattle play a lot of zone and have Earl Thomas over the top.

Gore out means future GOAT Hyde gets more carries, we'll need to draft another guy and run them in tandem tho...would love to take Gordon in the first, and maybe some insurance late with a smokey of mine Zach Zenner, or maybe sign Spiller/Bush. Willis+Iupati out means we can keep Brooks on which is good and maybe even make another move in FA. Smith is a good pick-up and hopefully means we've seen the end of Crabtree.

Dan Skuta getting the money he deserves at the Jags (20.5/5), very good player but didn't get enough chances to show it.

Pats the favourites to land Percy Harvin. Wouldn't mind that.

He was cut from the jest. Wouldn't start ahead of Edelman, Amendola and Laflel. Hasn't started 10 games in a year since 2011, only use would be as a KR which isn't worth what he'd get paid.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

2 picks, an FF and <50 tackles isn't worth 14mil a year

Just looked and YOU HAVE GOT TO BE F'ING KIDDING ME

Bradford was awesome for the sooners, if he stays injury free he's an elite QB. Threw for 1700 yards and 14/4 in 7 games in 2013 at a 91 passer rating. Worth the risk if Chip doesn't like Foles. Don't know about giving away the pick upgrade tho...

Post by: Jay on March 11, 2015, 01:32:17 PM
You know why his INT numbers are low, right Jukes? No one throws to him because he completely shuts down 1 half of the field.

And actually matches up on elite WRs unlike Sherman. Jets got a bargain.

Harris Jr gets paid 8.5m a year on his new contract, and he had a PFF grade of 28.4 (1st) last season. Vontae Davis 5m a year for a grade of 21.8 (2nd).

There is a big difference between college and the pros. Bradford has had 2 ACL injuries, is not mobile in the pocket and has a huge cap number. You trade your starting QB who has shown more then Bradford at this level with a low cap number AND picks for a guy that doesn't fit the offensive system you run.

Eagles offensive outs

DeSean Jackson - No return
Jeremy Maclin - No return
Shady McCoy - Kiko Alonso coming off an ACL
Nick Foles and picks - Sam Bradford coming off his 2nd ACL
Todd Herremans - 2 mill in cap space

In what word is this good?

Revis 14m a year for a grade of 17.7 (4th).
Keep in mind that Revis has been elite for several seasons now. And is just coming off being the 3rd best player on a Super Bowl winning team. Most importantly, matching up on #1 WRs every week and destroying them - only time all season he got beat was in that Baltimore game. He's the best corner in the league.

Not disappointed we didn't pay him 14m a year - that's too much for a contending team to spend on a corner imo. But it's clearly a positive move for the Jets. Just hope the Pats can spend that money wisely now. Re-signing Vereen would have been a good place to start, but now we need to fill that role, along with another CB.

Have mixed feelings about Revis. On one hand it's, "You won us a Super Bowl. Thank you." And the other is "You come here for one year, then leave straight away for more money!?" :-\

@Mat - I heard the Eagles and Demarco Murray have "mutual interest". Thoughts on that? Or does Chip only sign guys coming off an ACL :P

He is also going to want a large chunk of change meaning a lot of guaranteed money. He isn't a better back then Shady and is goinvg to want to get paid a similar salary to the one Shady had.

Totally agree. Dallas ran him into the ground last year and now, understandably, wouldn't touch him with a 10 foot pole. I could run for 4 yards per carry behind that offensive line.

I think Murray will end up getting the deal he wants from a shower, desperate team (Jets, Bucs, Jags, Raiders etc).

Philly GAVE UP the 2nd round pick for next year. There is a swap of picks this year (not 1sts) and the Eagles give up a 2nd rounder for next season and get a conditional 3rd back. The trade is THAT bad

That doesn't include the defensive side of the ball.

There is absolutely 0 direction right now. The Foles trade is the worst part, you are giving up picks to go with your young QB who has shown signs to get a guy with a huge salary and bad knees. I understand if there was a swap in first round picks and the Rams gave Philly picks for a salary dump, but Philly giving up picks to go with the bonehead move just stings. At least Sam Hinkie is gaining assets and cap room at the 6'ers, Chip is doing nada but dig himself in to a giant hole. I also read a report that Gore didn't want to come to Philly because of Chip which is why he backed out.

http://www.bleedinggreennation.com/2015/3/10/8183195/chip-kelly-frank-gore-eagles-overbearing-approach-colts-andre-johnson

This also goes with the reports of him threatening to walk unless he got his way with personnel control. The story from last years draft that leaked out around the time that Chip was making these threats still makes me think Lurie screwed himself. Chip wanted Howie to take Taylor Hart (a former Duck) in the 3rd round of the draft last year. Howie managed to talk him out of it saying he could get him a lot later, but he was still persistent before caving and wanting him to draft another former Duck in Josh Huff. Howie has actually been pretty good at dealing with players and drafting once he was given full control when Fat Man left (Danny Watkins draft I think was Fat Man's last). This also had a lot of rumors going around that Marcus Smith was a Chip Kelly pick and resulted in the power struggle between the two for control on personnel and drafting. The article below says it was Howie that talked him out of getting Matthews in the first, but no one knows for sure that it was Howie that made the call on Smith

Don't pretend he's anymore than a cheap option to fill a hole

We've got C-Jones for that already ;D
Have seen Belichick develop players who seem like role players into studs in the past ;)

I want Tramon Williams.. Seems like New Orleans are the favourites to land him though.

False. You don't exactly want a guy that just goes after the QB every play either. Teams like GB have been looking for someone to rush the passer on the opposite side of Matthews, but if you have a pure rusher on one side you need someone that can stop the run and is not a liability in coverage. This is why Barwin was so critical in Philly, Cole and Graham are converted DE's that could get to the QB (although both were also pretty good run defenders as well) but there coverage skills are horrible. Barwin was more often then not asked to play the run and drop into coverage, does this mean he is not a good OLB because that is what he is asked to do?

Mathews officially signed, the deal isn't bad but he can never stay healthy. Sproles and Mathews have played 1 season together at the Chargers, it was Mathews rookie season.

Philly are also still chasing Murray and I have no idea why

Signing Thurmond makes sense since they signed Maxwell.

I just can't work out the Foles trade. He's shown more than Bradford at NFL level, is healthier, and they had to give up draft compensation ???

Thurmond does if you don't have Boykin but both are slot guys and Boykin is the best in the business at the nickel CB position. This is what has lead me to believe they are trading Boykin

The trade is just stupid, there was talk of him potentially flipping Bradford to the Titans for pick 2 but for that to happen we would have needed the Rams first pick.

Schefter is reporting that Murray is going to sign with the Birds today. Technically Mathews hasn't signed but they have agreed to terms, would Philly back out if they got Murray? Is there a point to both and Sproles? Considering how devalued the RB position is and how they actually got a decent deal for Mathews, they will be spending a buttload of cash to have both on their roster considering they have needs at CB, S, WR and OL among other things  The move doesn't make a lot of sense other then screw Dallas

It is looking more likely that Philly is going to back out of their agreement with Ryan Mathews of 12 mill over 3 years (pretty good deal) to sign DeMarco Murray. If Murray costs more then 6-7 mill Philly are screwing themselves yet again this off-season

for once im impressed with Jerry Jones NOT opening his wallet to names, we dont need a stud back, we could run a RB committee behind that line and still get what we need in terms of game style, either Jerry has matured on his impulse spending or they no something about DeMarco's health, they ran him into the ground on minimum wage last year with not a lot of intent resign him.

Chip Kelly is hell bent on buddy ball and this is why Bradford over Foles

so eager to find out what our plan is, odds are its the draft, there are some ripples eluding to AP (Dallas native) which is more JJ's style, money fixes everything... i think the draft is the smarter option long term and increases the chances of sustained success, some good backs this draft too

And still keeping Ryan Mathews. So that is basically broken down like this now

Bradford (12 mill) + Murray (8 mill) + Mathews (4 mill) + Alonso (800k) vs Shady (11 mill) + Foles (1.3 mill) + Maclin (11 mill) + cash

Also Shady's new deal with the Bills (he had said multiple times he was willing to restructure in the media)

Quote
He wanted a running back in Murray's prototype bad enough that he paid Murray handsomely, a total that was nearly identical to McCoy's five-year, $40 million Bills deal with $26.05 million guaranteed.

So basically that is a lot more cash they could have had to upgrade other positions while now not having a giant hole at WR

Shady>>>>>>Murray

I know they will say they also got Alonso in the deal but the fact is it's still a bad deal

Post by: Mat0369 on March 13, 2015, 01:32:47 PM
Philly were about 3 or 4 pieces away from being contenders before the offseason started.

These were the needs as I ranked them

Secondary - Ideally they needed 2 starting corners and a safety. Williams was owed a lot of money and wasn't worth it, Fletcher was consistently roasted and Nate Allen was Nate Allen. They needed to fill in 3 voids next to Jenkins who was very solid his first season. I figured one corner through FA, 1 through the draft and you draft a safety while also signing a veteran option. So far that is looking like the plan while also getting Thurmond which to me doesn't make a lot of sense when you have Boykin and Carroll who was a really good dime corner.

O-Line - I wanted to keep Todd for one more year due to his versatility and go after a linemen in the draft to groom. Effectively over the next two seasons you have to replace 3 linemen in Peters, Mathis and Todd. Apparently they are shopping Mathis around which makes what was once a real strength of the team a huge weakness. When Mathis and Kelce were missing the line struggled bit time. We have no good replacements on the roster for either of these guys and you are getting rid of both.

ILB - With Ryans getting a year older and coming off an achilles, Matthews a free agent and Kendricks missing games each year we needed some depth. A mid round draft pick and a solid vet was the way to go. They picked up Alonso which is big, but he is also coming off his 2nd serious knee injury and there is no veteran depth.

OLB - Probably at the bottom of the list but with Smith struggling a vet with some decent coverage skills would have been a good signing. Especially after cutting Cole as you could have someone behind Graham with a different skill set

If Foles failed this season with a healthy O-Line then next year is where you go and get his replacement. There will be a lot of big name QB's that might be hitting free agency (including Bradford) or you go into the draft and try and target your guy

Pretty much where Philly were fine, D-Line and the offensive skills positions. We have gone and made some of our weaknesses weaker (O-line) while losing some of our strengths and forking out a lot of cash to replace them. Philly were Mark Sanchez not starting and a decent secondary away from being contenders last year. If you had Foles in those late season games instead of Sanchize they are either winning the division or making it in as a wildcard. You fix the secondary through FA and the draft with a healthy and productive Foles and they are a super dangerous team. At this point I can't see how our holes aren't bigger now then they were in Jan

He's probably right, Dallas did run Demarco into the ground. And it wouldn't surprise me if they had this plan from the start of the season considering the amount of time I saw him left in the game during a blowout.

Nuts. I knew that before the draft he had marijuana issues and he never seemed to be the most upstanding guy, but to think he was capable of this really makes me question a lot of things regarding the type of players the NFL has representing their brand. Domestic and child abuse is bad, but murder is a whole different level.

What I can't work out is, "why?". His life is basically over only 2 years after he was a stud tight end and had signed a 40 million dollar contract. All thrown away for what ::)

The more I read about it, the more I think it would have been an absolute tragedy if he's been found not guilty. Up until like a few days ago he'd said he wasn't at the scene and then suddenly admits he was. Wtf is that.

Hmm was probably trying to say that the fact Brady had no receivers, offensive line or running game would drag his QBR down. Btw, Brady was 4th in QBR last year compared to Kaep's 17th ;)

Still kinda funny that 3 of Philly's QBs rank bottom 5. I'm a TEBOW guy though, think he could potentially become their backup.

You know you suck when even the commentators are talking about how much you suck

I couldn't stop laughing that game, I wrote it down in my phone

"I watched Tebow throw this week"
"What did you think?"
"He was terrible"

He continued on with this

"I know he is a winer and I know all of the positives, watching him pass he was not impressive"

Then the pass above happened

"He is not a good passer, that simple"

Another bad off target pass

"The Patriots better hope that if Brady goes down Mallett is available. They turned Cassell into a pretty good QB, I don't think they can do that with Tebow"

"He's such a dichotomy for me. Because I really respect the person, the man, the things that he believes in and the things he does off the field," Feely said. "He was the single-worst quarterback I ever saw in my career in the NFL."
 
Feely then proceeds to tell a story about Tebow warming up and losing ... to air.
"I watched him one day ... I sat and watched him do routes on air with Ken Whisenhunt as we were playing the Broncos," Feely said. "And routes on air, there's no [defensive backs], you know exactly what he's going to run, there's no pass rush. He had like 13 incompletions on routes on air. Jim, you and I could go out and do routes on air and we would complete most of our passes."

Feely's take on the signing is that Kelly really believes his system will overcome everything and manage to "utilize" Tebow.

Quote
"He thinks his system is better than everyone's and his system is gonna work and it doesn't matter if he gets rid of star players like DeSean Jackson or LeSean McCoy," Feely said. "He thinks he's smarter so he can take a guy everyone else has quit on ... and utilize him."

Draft Pick 20. Philadelphia Eagles: Jordan Spieth, Golfer, Texas
 
A golfer? Chip Kelly drafted a golfer? I’m sure there’s a reasonable chipsplanation.
 
“Tom Brady and Peyton Manning are pretty good golfers, and they also turned out to be pretty good quarterbacks,” Kelly says at Spieth’s introductory press conference. “Are you starting to connect the dots yet?
 
“Spieth has not only won the Masters but beaten Tony Romo in golf numerous times,” Kelly said. “Those skills directly translate to the field. Or do I have to draw you a diagram?” Kelly then throws a microphone at Howard Eskin and storms off the podium.
 
Kelly’s media apostles then explain that Kelly wins with scheme on offense, not personnel, and that the scheme has never been about mobile option quarterbacks; that was always a superficial assessment by so-called experts who don’t understand strategy. A perfectly stationary athlete would actually be better for the Eagles offense, so Spieth is perfect. So is Tim Tebow, because … computer error … CLASHING RATIONALIZATIONS … LOGICAL FALLACY … Zzzzt.
 
Here is the full Eagles mock draft. If you don’t understand the logic behind the moves, it is because you are not smart enough:
 
1st Round: Jordan Spieth, Texas
 
2nd Round: Manny Pacquiao, Notre Dame of Dadiangas
 
3rd Round: Sam Dekker, Wisconsin (as a running back)
 
4th Round: American Pharoah, Zayat Stables. When things go wrong, Kelly ain’t going out like Richard III.
 
5th Round: Hroniss Grasu, Oregon. What? The Eagles need depth at center!
 
5th Round: Sent to Chargers as part of the Connor Barwin-Phillip Rivers-Adrian Peterson-Johnny Manziel trade to acquire Giancarlo Stanton.
 
6th Round: Jordan Lewis, Hawthorn. Kelly has plans to revolutionize Austalian football, too.
 
7th Round: Someone who will be blamed on Howie Roseman.







I like the 6th round pick the most

Can't wait to see buccs and Titans/Browns/skins ruin a great pick on two terrible QBs. showerty teams should just stop reaching for QBs that are gonna bust 80% of the time. Build a great D and O-line. The Hawks have been the best team in the league for two years with showerty Russ at QB. Unless it's a guy like Luck, just fill out your roster with safer talent.

Anyway, if we can draft Maxxxxy Williams, Melv Gordon, Jake Ryan and Mike Hull I'll be happy :P

Throwing 25/18 with a strong offensive unit and against a piss easy schedule isn't first pick quality or probably first round, there aren't any elite QBs in this draft and it's sad, although there's a lot of late value (Grayson, Bonner, Hedrick, Mason etc). Cook and Hackenberg are far better than Memeiota and Winston.

Tartt is ok but I WANTED WILLIAMS

Tampa with a great pick Ali Marpet at 61, he's an awesome blocker and if he was a D1 guy not D3 would've been top 10. Strong to the Texans at 70 also great. Hroniss Grasu has a great name and could be a fantastic burr. Garrett Grayson the BEST QB IN THIS DRAFT will hopefully get some great experience under Brees and could be the future long-term QB at the saints

Longhorns didn't finish 6-7 because of bad luck. They were terrible on D, gave up 48-flowering-points to TCU, then 31 to Arkansas. Plain athleticism at DT may work in college but it won't in the pros. Reminds me of Sylvester Williams, who's flowering bad.

I think he will play safety after looking at some tape. His tackling form is brilliant for a corner and in the Chip/Davis system you need a safety that can cover. It is one of the reasons they went out and got Jenkins, Rowe is a scheme fit so I am happy with it, especially considering safety is such a huge hole. He doesn't seem to get a lot of interceptions but he seems to be good at batting down the ball. He probably isn't going to be Earl Thomas since it doesn't look like he has the ball hawk skills, but if he become a lesser version of McCourty you get a good one with a 2nd round pick

Detroit get a great UDFA in Zenner, had this guy been at a bigger school (and, dare I say it, a different colour) he'd be fighting with Gurley+Gordon for the best RB in the draft, wish we took him over that gamecock guy

Dolphins getting Mike Hull as a UDFA is a flowering scam, he should've gone top 100. And they picked up Zach Vigil too. Screw you phins.

Quote
How did the Patriots end up getting exactly what they needed without budging an inch? Despite rumors they were going to deal their pick at the end of the first round to the Texans, Bill Belichick’s team somehow came away with a player it could have justified grabbing 15 spots earlier. Although the Patriots were a respectable 13th against the run per DVOA last year, that was with Vince Wilfork, who was a cap casualty this offseason.

While the Patriots can expect to get more out of 2014 first-rounder Dominique Easley this season, the 290-pound defensive tackle simply doesn’t do the same things that Wilfork, nominally playing the same position, did for years and years. The 319-pound Brown can’t expect to play like Wilfork overnight, but he has the frame to hold up as a two-gapping tackle if Belichick wants to use him that way. Brown was regarded as arguably the best run defender in this class, and Belichick will be able to use him for 40 snaps a game to clog up the interior of the defense while Jamie Collins and Jerod Mayo run free behind him. We don’t know if Brown will be an above-average pro yet, so it’s impossible to say this is a great pick. Given pre-draft projections and analysis of where the Patriots are weakest, though, it sure seems like a logical one.

I'm just hoping we have a bit of a competition in the division this year. Gets a little boring absolutely dominating the whole division for over a decade  :-X

Miami are who I'm worried about. Decent offense and with Suh it takes that defense to a new level. Jets and Bills still have scrubs as QB - not worried about them. We can win 9-3 if we have to.

Bills running back LeSean McCoy isn’t backing down from the idea that he and Eagles coach Chip Kelly’s relationship is the reason for his departure, saying Kelly didn’t like or respect stars.
And he doubled down on those comments by making a serious allegation.
In an interview with ESPN the Magazine, McCoy said Kelly was uncomfortable with him, with an uncomfortable reason for it.
“The relationship was never really great,” McCoy said. “I feel like I always respected him as a coach. I think that’s the way he runs his team. He wants the full control. You see how fast he got rid of all the good players. Especially all the good black players. He got rid of them the fastest. That’s the truth. There’s a reason. . . .
“It’s hard to explain with him. But there’s a reason he got rid of all the black players — the good ones — like that.”
McCoy didn’t elaborate, and the Eagles didn’t comment on the statement, which they’re inevitably going to have to do.
McCoy’s statements track along with the accusation/non-accusation of ESPN talker Stephen A. Smith in March, who suggested the same sinister motive.
Kelly’s approach to running off stars seems color-blind, considering the way he openly taunted guard Evan Mathis last weekend, saying no one has offered to trade for him in two years.
But clearly, McCoy has a problem with Kelly that goes beyond skin deep.

idk how Edelman got #91, I thought "Brady is the only good player who doesn't need no good receivers"?

Witten and Sanders probably underrated, idc if they do have two of the top handful of QBs passing to them.

Amen. "It is more probable than not that Brady was generally aware." If you want to punish a guy based on no actual evidence and just on the fact that there's a chance he was aware, this league is a joke.

Skittle Monster is a fun dude to watch, on and off the field.

There are only a few elite defenses in the league but there are quite a few which are in rebuild mode to compete.

He's still one of my favourite QBs alongside Ax, Luck, Cook, Hackenberg etc and I'll support whoever we have, but if I could have a choice I'd always take a pocket passer. They just work a lot better.

Jags, St Louis, Minnesota or any AFC North team. I legit think it could be fun watching the Jags develop into a nice defensive team, they're already pretty well coached on that end and have a good plan that is slowly starting to unravel. Other two clubs a fair bit more proven.

I'll give you a list of teams to watch that people won't call you a bandwagon fan

I would try and watch these games in the first two weeks, or at least the highlights and I will give you a bit of a summary on each team

Week 1

Chiefs vs Texans

The Chiefs have the makings of a really good D with outside rushers in Houston and Hali. They were a bit weak in the secondary but they looked to improve that. Their coach is Andy Reid, he looks like a Walrus and makes some brain fart decisions that make you think what the F. They just picked up Maclin who Reid used to coach in Philly, they didn't have a WR that caught a TD last year so it is a pretty big move. They have Charles as a RB and he is a beast and a serviceable QB in Smith who can go for an odd run but is a pocket passer. They also have 0 success since the late 60's

Texans were an expansion team, they have the best defensive player in the league (JJ Watt) who turns what would be a mediocre to below average D into borderline elite. They have a great RB in Foster, a young WR in Hopkins, picked up a good WR with injury problems in Shorts but their QB situation is a joke. They have also had 0 success.

Colts vs Bills

Colts have a terrible D so they might not be the team for you but they have the best young QB in the league in Luck. They have also had recent success so they are out, but they bombed when Peyton got injured and Luck has lead them to the playoffs since his rookie year.

Bills are an interesting team. They had a great up and coming D last year and went out and got one of the best defensive coaches in the league in Rex Ryan. Ryan defenses have traditionally been smash mouth but he has changed the scheme from a 4/3 (4 down linemen and 3 linebackers) to 3/4 which can take some adjusting as you need different pieces. They still have the talent so you would expect them to kill teams in that department. They also acquired Shady McCoy who is my fav player in the league. He is amazing to watch as he can turn nothing into a huge TD run. Watkins is going to be a beast at WR but their QB situation is also a joke. They have not had any success since the early 90's and even then they didn't win a Super Bowl.

Rams vs Hawks

Rams are another interesting team. The whole NFC West is a defensive football conference (although one team in particular has a few holes at the moment) so you will get your smash mouth football in this game. Fisher is developing a really stout defense and this off season they have gone out and got some pieces for the offensive side of the ball. They drafted Gurley who could be the best RB in the league in a couple of years and grabbed Foles who is a great young QB that I wasn't happy we traded. The only issue with the Rams is the O-Line who haven't been great.

Forget about the Hawks. They were in the SB last year before winning it the year before. They do have Lynch play for them but the success is a cross. It will be a good game to watch though since it is a rivalry game.

Cards vs Saints

Cards have been a horrid franchise for a long time but have built an elite D to put them in contention. They are another NFC West team so it is Defense based football. They need Palmer to stay healthy at QB because they were signing guys off the street last year to play in the playoffs. Palmer is a pocket passer and you do have the weapons in Floyd and Fitz


Saints won a SB  quite a few years back and are about to start a rebuild due to poor cap management. They just traded away arguably their best player in Jimmy Graham. They still have Brees who had a bad year last season but is an elite QB. The other Ryan brother Rob might get that D playing at an elite level but I doubt it.

Lions vs Chargers

The Lions statistically had one of the best defensive groups in the league last year. They last their anchor in the middle in Suh to free agency but they were a pretty deep rotation. It will be interesting to see how it hurts them. They do have a decent offensive unit with Stafford at QB although he has never put it all together and Calvin 'Megatron' Johnson at WR. Megatron has been looked at as the best WR in recent years although the mantle looks to have been passed on due to his injuries. In terms of success, nada

The Chargers are more an offensive side but they have some good pieces on both sides of the ball. Success has also been zero but they are a fun team to watch.

Ravens vs Broncos

Both teams have had success recently either making or winning the SB but I think it might be worth watching the Ravens. Broncos will be on the decline since Peyton is finishing up

Eagles vs Falcons

This one is my team

Philly's offseason has been nothing short of interesting. Chip Kelly is their current head coach and took over from Andy Reid a couple of years ago. Since he has been coach, he has implemented an offense which is not about winning time of possession but trying to run a specific amount of plays per game. He flat out cut their best WR last year, fought to get full power of the team and when he did traded the teams leading rusher in the entire history of the team for a LB'er coming off an ACL from his old college team, traded the starting QB for another teams QB coming off an ACL and let his other big name WR walk while cutting other vets without a real back up plan. To make matters funnier, he has signed a bunch of guys from that former college team. Anyway after all that, they have tried to rebuild the defense and the offense can be explosive to watch. It will always be entertaining in Philly both on and off the field. In terms of success, they made the NFL version of the prelim 4 times, made the SB once under their old coach but they struggled in Reid's last couple of seasons hence the Chip signing.

The Falcons have not really had any success other then a few division wins, they have some good offensive players with Jones and White out wide and Matty Ice at QB. Ryan is a pocket passer so he fits the style of QB you like. The D has been crap, but they just signed Quinn to be their coach. He was the defensive coordinator of the Seahawks so he might be able to turn that around

Week 2 - most of those teams I have already written something up on but it will be good to watch them play twice

Broncos vs Chiefs

Panthers vs Texans

Panthers were an expansion team and have made 1 SB in that time losing the game. They had a really good defense 2 years ago but were in the worst division in football last year. Their QB is Cam who is more of a runner.

Saints vs Bucs

Bucs are horrible, Lovie Smith should have walked in and had the pieces to build a good defense but it just didn't work out. They have some weapons to catch the ball in Evans and Jackson and now have a rookie QB in Winston. Being in the worst division in the league they could bounce back this year.

Cards vs Bears

Bears look to be a basket case. They fired their coach, traded their best leader in Marshall and still have a lot of holes. They haven't had much success since the 80's when their teams were beastly. They did make a SB in the mid 2000's but their QB was the worst to have ever played in a SB in Rex Grossman

Bills vs Pats

Pats won the SB, forget them, it is more a chance to watch the Bills again in a rivalry game.

Bengals vs Chargers

Bengals could be a good choice. Their D has been hit and miss but it was more miss due to injuries, they aren't  team people pay a lot of attention too but they have the makings of an exciting side. The Ginger Ninja Andy Dalton at QB seems to be the big weakness. They have Green at WR, Gio and Hill at RB, they have some serious baller potential with this crew

Rams vs Skins

Skins are a basket case and have none of what you want, pass, more of a chance to watch the Rams twice

Dolphins vs Jags

Dolphins picked up Suh to add to their D, not sure exactly how they will look this year but they might be worth a watch. Jags are pretty terrible even though Gus Bradley is a defensive minded coach. It might be worth checking out just to see how the Dolphins go.

Eagles vs Cowboys

Cowgirls are the Collingwood of the NFL, they also still like to talk about their success from 20 years ago like it still matters. This will be a big rivalry game and you get a chance to check out the Eagles again.

Packers vs Seahawks

Both teams have been successful in recent years but this should be the game of the week and must watch. Rodgers is the best offensive player in the league and he takes on possibly the best defense.

Sorry but what is the evidence? If there was in fact some hard evidence, you'd think they would be able to come up with stronger terms than "generally aware" and "more probable than not". Some flimsy text messages between employees who don't like their boss doesn't count. And nor does the fact Brady donated jerseys etc. to those employees.

Do I think Brady is meticulous and hates it when the footballs are over-inflated? Absolutely.
Do I think Brady wanted the locker room attendants to deflate the balls even more after the ref checked them? Absolutely not.
Is there any evidence proving Tom Brady definitely asked for the balls to be illegally deflated? No.

Cowherd made a solid point on the "probable" aspect of this today. Mainly because Tom very much appears to have lied and tried to cover up. The fact Cowherd gave is that Brady said he did NOT know a guy (I think affiliated with the team or equipment) and then later (maybe the same day?) after stating that, he had 4 phone calls totaling in over an hour of talk time to the guy he adamantly claimed he did not know.


So cowherd used relationships and divorce. Essentially if your wife asked if you were out with some skeeze and you said know, but your phone shows calls to some bimbo, she will assume you PROBABLY chested. She has ZERO proof. No video. No admission. Just her own speculation based off probable cause. And that people get divorced every day in this country over "probable".

Also restated that Brady is NOT getting tried for a CRIME, so probable cause/belief/circumstantial evidence/etc is plenty enough to "punish" him for the situation.

So how do you explain his 3 touchdowns in the second half of the AFC championship game and the 4 in the Superbowl, including two of the biggest fourth quarter drives in nfl history? Sure, he hasn't handled this situation perfectly. But anyone who tries to take away from his on-field achievements are just bitter because their QB is worse than Tom '4x champion, 2x MVP, 3x SB MVP' Brady.

Even the investigator didn't think it was obvious, hence the term "more probable than not".

Brady being suspended 4 games is the biggest load of bullshower in the history of the NFL. Ray Rice flowering beat his own wife and only got 2 games... Brady ALLEDGEDLY had SOMETHING to do with deflating footballs and gets 4 games.

And we lose a 1st round pick, 4th round pick. Get flowered.

He's going to flowering wreck the league for the 39736th time when he comes back.

So they're saying it's worse than taking PEDs ::) even if Brady is 100% guilty, it's still a minor offence that has been blown way out of proportion. The footballs were slightly less than the Colts balls - note that they "only had time" to measure 4 of there's. And obviously didn't impact the outcome of any games.

The NFL has killed the Pats here, something 31 teams haven't been able to do :)

Agree with the penalty though, knowingly cheating and then lying about it deserves 1/4 of the season out and a FOREVER tarnished career

That's worse than SLIGHTLY deflating footballs that had no impact on the result, yet because it's not the Pats, no asterisk.



Haha how convenient for the NFL to make Brady's return game against the Colts... It's good though, another chance for us to destroy them. Like we have ever since they got Luck.

I just don't get how you can convict a person on circumstantial evidence and hearsay? All the NFL is trying to do with this is use Brady as a scapegoat to make them look good after last years screw ups. I guess the NFL doesn't have to follow American law? Prove Brady cheated then convict, not the other way around. A fine for the team? Maybe, but don't tell me anyone but the equipment managers may have known something unless you have solid proof.

Prove that he cheated, and then I'll listen. Point is that if you think using balls that are 0.3 below the legal PSI limit for one half takes away from his on field achivements, you're kidding yourself. And he's proved how good he is year after year ;)

*Wah wah, Brady didn't deflate his balls wah wah*

^Pats Fans

Quote
Cowherd made a solid point on the "probable" aspect of this today. Mainly because Tom very much appears to have lied and tried to cover up. The fact Cowherd gave is that Brady said he did NOT know a guy (I think affiliated with the team or equipment) and then later (maybe the same day?) after stating that, he had 4 phone calls totaling in over an hour of talk time to the guy he adamantly claimed he did not know.


So cowherd used relationships and divorce. Essentially if your wife asked if you were out with some skeeze and you said know, but your phone shows calls to some bimbo, she will assume you PROBABLY chested. She has ZERO proof. No video. No admission. Just her own speculation based off probable cause. And that people get divorced every day in this country over "probable".

Also restated that Brady is NOT getting tried for a CRIME, so probable cause/belief/circumstantial evidence/etc is plenty enough to "punish" him for the situation.

Post by: plumdog millionaire on May 13, 2015, 09:10:36 PM
As a Patriots fan, I have a few thoughts on the situation albeit I may, of course, be biased.

1. Yes, the Wells Report states that it is 'more probable than not' that balls were tampered illegally (Aside, even then the actual figures of PSI are not as well reported or accurate as they should be, considering this is a professional sports league with millions of $ at stake at any moment), and the evidence against the locker room staff, namely the texts, are damning (But may have been taken out of context). However I do not believe that it is 'more probable than not' (Which is the term used by the NFL to make a ruling) that Brady was behind this. One of the main arguments used was that Brady gave memorabilia and signed merch to these staff members - this is 'commonplace' among all NFL teams and low-level staff (Per Mike Reiss, who is pretty well connected in NFL circles http://espn.go.com/blog/new-england-patriots/post/_/id/4781236/turning-a-critical-eye-on-wells-report).

2. The punishment was way too harsh and doesn't make complete sense
- Brady suspended 4 games (More than Ray Rice originally) for something he wasn't proven of doing (Ray Rice had a bloody video!)
- Pats, as an organisation, stripped of a 1st and 4th round picks (Worth a tonne) for something that at worst, was between a player, and a few low-level staff members. Furthermore, Bill Belichick, and by extension the whole front office, was basically 'cleared' by the NFL (Whatever that means anymore) of any wrongdoing, so it's not like the whole front office conspired in this whole incident, however that's what the penalty shows.
- I understand a lot of the penalties that were handed down were in response to the Patriots', and their staff's, perceived lack of cooperation with the NFL, even when the organisation initially pledged otherwise. The way I see it is that it would be hard to expect the staff, or any other parties in question, to believe that the NFL would act ethically or fairly to the staff interviewed or investigated, given all the leaks that were released, lack of independence of the investigation, and Goodell's history of reacting primarily to public opinion.
- When this incident is lined up against other game-day related incidents, there seems to be some inconsistency to which ones are investigated and spent millions of dollars on, and which are not:
http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/8604254/san-diego-chargers-fined-20000-failing-comply-game-official
http://espn.go.com/blog/minnesota-vikings/post/_/id/11218/nfl-aware-of-game-ball-incident-during-panthers-vikings

There are a few other tid bits (Such as the poor handling by the NFL office of the whole debacle, the leaks that just kept getting released and the fact that the referees weren't suspicious at all that maybe something must have happened when the balls weren't where they usually were for '19 years' and were taken without their permission) that I'd like to bring up but I'll keep this short enough.

I really hope the appeal process goes in such a way to help reverse the exaggerated response by the NFL and their mishandling of the situation, and that these punishments will be reviewed and altered to truly represent the level of guilt and the nature of the evidence available to the NFL. Selfishly hope Brady's 'dream team' of lawyers comes through.

Sorry for the length and at times attacking language, but just needed to say a few things and to get it off my chest.

To be honest, we're probably still going to win the division even without Brady not playing the first four games. But being stripped of a 1st round and 4th round pick? That's enough to significantly set a franchise back. And adding to that, the NFL RULEBOOK saying that tampering with footballs is a $25,000 fine.

Punishment does not fit the "crime".

Oh my god funny you mention that because I watched the game at a Foxtel watching party thing and there were cameras there for some reason, and one was focused on me for a good few minutes after the interception, almost got kicked out I was going nuts hahahaha

Yeah without a doubt, I even heard that they shouldn't play Brady for the Colts game so they don't make as much revenue on it :P
Legitimately isn't just about any one player with the Pats, it's the structure and culture (Queue haters: "CHEATING IS THEIR CULTURE"), that's the key to their success. Contrast to franchises such as the Browns.

Haha yes I've done that once or twice, but should start doing it more often hey :P

I don't know if I'm for that because it would majorly piss off the NFL, and Belichick doesn't strike me as the type who would do that, but boy, it would be one major boss ass move.
I still get goosebumps whenever I watch that interception. Spewing I didn't have a camera set up to film my reaction to it :P flowering good times ;D

Anything that takes a stand against this ridiculously harsh punishment I'm all for. Agreed that Belichick would probably hate that idea - but I think it'd be cool. Funny that we lost one of the best defensive players in the league, and our QB for the first month and are still favourites to win the AFC ;D
Oh my god funny you mention that because I watched the game at a Foxtel watching party thing and there were cameras there for some reason, and one was focused on me for a good few minutes after the interception, almost got kicked out I was going nuts hahahaha

Yeah without a doubt, I even heard that they shouldn't play Brady for the Colts game so they don't make as much revenue on it :P
Legitimately isn't just about any one player with the Pats, it's the structure and culture (Queue haters: "CHEATING IS THEIR CULTURE"), that's the key to their success. Contrast to franchises such as the Browns.
I think my exact words were "OH MY GOD HE INTERCEPTED IT" whilst running around the house like a mad man ;D honestly can't imagine a SuperBowl ever being as sweet as that one...

See I'm glad I've got another Pat fan on here with me now!! I'd definitely play Brady in that game though, Andrew Luck hasn't even got close to beating him.

@Riot - sorry for defending the guy that brought my team 4 SuperBowls, who is being punished despite no actual evidence he did anything wrong.

A flowering men.

To be honest, we're probably still going to win the division even without Brady not playing the first four games. But being stripped of a 1st round and 4th round pick? That's enough to significantly set a franchise back. And adding to that, the NFL RULEBOOK saying that tampering with footballs is a $25,000 fine.

Punishment does not fit the "crime".
Dream scenario is the Pats win the SB while crushing the Colts first game back  :P
But I think that winning the division would be enough to shut up the haters.

Seems like a really good list to me. No surprise they've gone Rodgers and Brady as the top 2 QBs.

Agree with Watt at 1, he's so much better than anyone else in his position it's unfair. If you're looking at impact on the game tho, probably gotta go with a QB. Just depends how you look at it.

No joke. In my opinion, trading Shady was worse than this though. Got rid of probably a top 3 running back for a dude who can't stay on the park.

^ I can sure think of one such team very recently ;)

"can't stay on the park" he did his acl and missed one season, it's not like he's walking bandages-and-casts. Best rookie in 2013 and I have no doubt he is a future pro-bowl player at the minimum - I also expect he will be an all-pro player. Definitely worth the price for a back coming off an 'Solid-To-Pretty-Good-I-Guess' season, especially seeing as they signed Mathews and Murray to replace him.

Oh, yeah. I just don't really consider the Niners as a team at the moment ;) I more meant along the lines of unforced changes. Niners have had retirees and all that, whereas Chip has just GUTTED a pretty good football team.

3. Cowboys
4. Falcons
5. Lions
6. Eagles
Unlucky: Vikings, Panthers (if they had good QBs they'd be in the playoffs), Cardinals

Didnt you pick the same Super Bowl last year? How'd that work out? :P Btw the Ravens lost Ngata and Torrey Smith, plus Flacco doesn't turn into a top 10 QB until the playoffs start..

1. Colts
2. Pats (switch with Colts if Brady's suspension is overturned)
3. Broncos
4. Pittsburgh
5. Dolphins
6. Ravens

1. Seahawks
2. Cowboys
3. Pack
4. Falcons
5. Arizona
6. Vikings

Can't wait to pound the Colts again in the AFC championship. But not sure we'll beat the NFC winner this year. Since you stole my pick (Pack) :P I'll back Arizona getting hot late in the season and causing an upset.

I picked two teams not in the top three favourites to make it (Pats, Hawks, Broncos?), one of them should have made it if not for gross incompetence and bad luck beyond belief and the other was cheated out of it.

Four words: Maxx Mother flowering Williams. This guy will automatically become an elite tight end - Kelce, Gronk, Graham, Olsen, Witten, Williams. Add to that Pitta's return and Perriman's drafting, still have a mean defence, very good OL (Yanda <3), and Flacco is a beast - career highs in yards and tds, low amount of ints, and didn't lose a fumble.

If, a) you thought the Colts were a better team than the Pats last season, and b) that the ball "deflation" impacted the result of the AFC championship game, then you're nuts.

We killed them even with the perfectly inflated balls after half time. It wasn't like a one score game bro, it was a demolition. ???

I reckon the seeds will be like this

Colts (will win their division by default)
Bengals
Chargers
Bills
Chiefs
Pats

Last: Jets, Jags, Raiders, Browns

Reason I have Pats at 6 is lack of CB's and no QB for the first 4 games. Broncos I see dropping out and the Chargers winning the division. Chiefs and Broncos will come down to head to head. Bengals I think switch it on this year and the final wild card spot comes down to the Steelers/Pats

Hawks
Pack
Falcons
Least worst NFC East team
Cards
Rams

Last: Bears, 9'ers, Bucs, could be any of the 4 but I will say Skins for now

Lions are the other in contention for the wild card spot.

Nice one with the Rams there, Mat. Really like that team, particularly the D.

It's unfortunate they're in such a tough division. Although it mightn't be as strong this year with the Forty-Whiners losing all their players.

Foles and Gulrey will be huge for that offense. They have been a streaky team but I think if you have the offensive line play well that team could cause some serious carnage. I am expecting Austin to break out for around 1200 yards with Foles throwing him the ball.

NFC West would need to send three for the rams to make it imo, unless Palmer gets injured again, and I can't see that happening unless the Lions, Eagles, Panthers, and Vikings screw up.

Gurley is very average. Shouldn't have gone first round let alone top 10 and has nothing on Melv Gordon. I'd have taken Zach Zenner over him; production > m-m-muh upside

Two teams from the NFC East won't make it, no chance two teams from the South make it, Lions is the one that will be fighting for the 6 seed, Vikings won't get near it. I think the 3 teams fighting for a wildcard will be the Cards, Lions and Rams.

Gurley will start slow and be eased into it, Mason will tote the rock until he is 100% ready but Gurley will beast.

Vikings' defence rocks...best safety in the league (imo) in Harrison Smith, and a lot more helpful pieces - Matthews, Greenway, Barr, Munnerlyn, Mays, Waynes, Kendricks. If AP is back to his best (or even near-best) they'll be good. Patterson and Wallace are nice on the outside, and I reckon Adam Thielen could break out, and Kyle Rudolph is a gun. Fusco, Sullivan, Loadholt, and Kalil are solid linemen, as long as Bridgewater acknowledges his place as a game manager they'll be solid.

If they had a good, dynamic QB such as Carr though...they'd be playoff-bound for sure.

21/12 to 14/12 with an inferior supporting cast (vikings had the 14th best running game, raiders last - and Jennings and Patterson would've been far and away the best raiders receivers, plus a better defence) against a harder schedule (11 games against top-10 pass defenses against 4)

It’s happened so many times now that there’s no doubt Weddle is the best safety in the league. Still, with the play of Harrison Smith he may have a challenger in the coming years. His playmaking all over the field caught the eye.

That's pretty interesting, especially since PFF are one of the leaders in NFL analysis. However, Earl Thomas is so overwhelmingly favoured that it's hard to prove that he isn't the greatest just from one outlet's analysis

I.e. he has a lot more help. Sherman, Chancellor, Wagner, Bennett are all probably more valuable than the next best Viking (Barr) and Charger (Butler/Flowers?)

PFF grading AND stats indicate Smith and Weddle are the top two, that's enough for me. I'd even go as far as saying Glover Quin is better than Thomas.

Don't want to be that guy, but if Smith and Weddle had a different physical characteristic every media and fan would be lining up to hail them as gods.

Smith the only player in the NFL with 3 sacks and 3 picks last season (he had 5 picks total), neither Weddle nor Thomas (at least Weddle had multiple picks though) had 3 in either. Superstar

I actually kind of cheat to counter-act the computer's cheating for goal-line; if (on all-madden at least) you're within 2-3 yards of the endzone and call a run they'll always go into run D and stack the DL, but if you call a pass they'll have a normal defence no matter what down or time it is, so I call a run then audible to quick slants and it always works, should a WR get any separation at all.

You're banking a lot on the falcons being the top dogs in the NFC South and I wouldn't trust them...but whatever, your money.


Unrelated, saw a great stat today: JJ Watt has lead the league over the last two years with 97 QB hits. The second and third most, Dunlap and Quinn, COMBINE for 99. Insanity, legitimately could and should be the GOAT of defense when he retires.

I just think Dan Quinn will be a huge upgrade from Mike Smith. Also think Justin Durant will fit in well there. Easiest schedule in the league too. I think they'll go 10-6.

That division is a crap shoot every year. The Saints are in rebuild mode but still have Brees, I think the Falcons take out the division this year. It has to be between them and the Panthers. It is arguably the worst division in football

This is like getting a 500k fine for jaywalking. 4 games is ridiculous, but as soon as Kraft took the league's side and not Brady's, there was no way they were changing the suspension. Not sure he should appeal it in actual court though, just due to the chance of that resulting in him missing games late in the season.. Pats have won 2 SuperBowls after starting 0-2, it won't be the end of the world if we start slow and then angry Brady comes back for week 5.

its got nothing to do with him being suspended for 4 games it him being found guilty of doing something wrong. I dont think he stops till that fact is changed.

Post by: Jay on July 29, 2015, 08:28:04 PM
Finally, some sense!

Quote
"The Commissioner’s decision is deeply disappointing, but not surprising because the appeal process was thoroughly lacking in procedural fairness.
Most importantly, neither Tom nor the Patriots did anything wrong. And the NFL has no evidence that anything inappropriate occurred.
The appeal process was a sham, resulting in the Commissioner rubber-stamping his own decision. For example, the Wells investigative team was given over 100 days to conduct its investigation. Just days prior to the appeal hearing, we were notified that we would only have four hours to present a defense; therefore, we didn’t have enough time to examine important witnesses. Likewise, it was represented to the public that the Wells team was ‘independent’; however, when we requested documents from Wells, our request was rejected on the basis of privilege. We therefore had no idea as to what Wells found from other witnesses, nor did we know what those other witnesses said.
These are just two examples of how the Commissioner failed to ensure a fair process.
Additionally, the science in the Wells Report was junk. It has been thoroughly discredited by independent third parties.
Finally, as to the issue of cooperation, we presented the Commissioner with an unprecedented amount of electronic data, all of which is incontrovertible. I do not think that any private citizen would have agreed to provide anyone with the amount of information that Tom was willing to reveal to the Commissioner. Tom was completely transparent. All of the electronic information was ignored; we don’t know why. The extent to which Tom opened up his private life to the Commissioner will become clear in the coming days.
The Commissioner’s decision and discipline has no precedent in all of NFL history. His decision alters the competitive balance of the upcoming season. The decision is wrong and has no basis, and it diminishes the integrity of the game."

Brady has just posted the following statement on his facebook page. I feel sorry for the guy, clearly believes he hasn't done anything wrong, there is no evidence otherwise and he's being treated like a cheater. Disgraceful.

Quote
I am very disappointed by the NFL’s decision to uphold the 4 game suspension against me. I did nothing wrong, and no one in the Patriots organization did either.
Despite submitting to hours of testimony over the past 6 months, it is disappointing that the Commissioner upheld my suspension based upon a standard that it was “probable” that I was “generally aware” of misconduct. The fact is that neither I, nor any equipment person, did anything of which we have been accused. He dismissed my hours of testimony and it is disappointing that he found it unreliable.
I also disagree with yesterdays narrative surrounding my cellphone. I replaced my broken Samsung phone with a new iPhone 6 AFTER my attorneys made it clear to the NFL that my actual phone device would not be subjected to investigation under ANY circumstances. As a member of a union, I was under no obligation to set a new precedent going forward, nor was I made aware at any time during Mr. Wells investigation, that failing to subject my cell phone to investigation would result in ANY discipline.
Most importantly, I have never written, texted, emailed to anybody at anytime, anything related to football air pressure before this issue was raised at the AFC Championship game in January. To suggest that I destroyed a phone to avoid giving the NFL information it requested is completely wrong.
To try and reconcile the record and fully cooperate with the investigation after I was disciplined in May, we turned over detailed pages of cell phone records and all of the emails that Mr. Wells requested. We even contacted the phone company to see if there was any possible way we could retrieve any/all of the actual text messages from my old phone. In short, we exhausted every possibility to give the NFL everything we could and offered to go thru the identity for every text and phone call during the relevant time. Regardless, the NFL knows that Mr. Wells already had ALL relevant communications with Patriots personnel that either Mr. Wells saw or that I was questioned about in my appeal hearing. There is no “smoking gun” and this controversy is manufactured to distract from the fact they have zero evidence of wrongdoing.
I authorized the NFLPA to make a settlement offer to the NFL so that we could avoid going to court and put this inconsequential issue behind us as we move forward into this season. The discipline was upheld without any counter offer. I respect the Commissioners authority, but he also has to respect the CBA and my rights as a private citizen. I will not allow my unfair discipline to become a precedent for other NFL players without a fight.
Lastly, I am overwhelmed and humbled by the support of family, friends and our fans who have supported me since the false accusations were made after the AFC Championship game. I look forward to the opportunity to resume playing with my teammates and winning more games for the New England Patriots.

Wow! Kraft and Belichick just held a press conference and boy oh boy were there some massive statements.

Firstly, as a Patriots fan, I'm appreciative of Robert Kraft apologising for his mistake in accepting the league's punishment in May. He thought it would exonerate Brady, and then the NFLPA's appeal would result in the right conclusion being reached - it didn't work, he should have appealed instantly, but at least he knows that. He then said the League Office are taking this to court (wtf?). Seems like there is lots more still to play out. He also said he was wrong to put his faith in the league.. And fair enough! This is the harshest ever penalty in NFL history, and it's because of an alleged ball tampering violation of which no evidence has been found even months after.

Belichick's press conference was vintage, d!ckhead mode haha. Just answered basically everything with how they're preparing for the 2015 season, and that they are about to begin training camp.

look, I agree the league is weak on these sorts of things - you cite Atlanta as case in point, I agree that was a joke ...
Ray Rice - how Goodsell and the league handled that was a joke ...

but cheating's cheating and on balance of probabilities they cheated, to then come out and be all indignant about it??

sorry J-man, you won't dissuade me from thinking all Brady's achievements are tainted at some level ... i'm all for playing to win but like with Essendon here there is a line and the Pats (not saying they're alone in this) crossed it ...

as Riot wrote, league really needs to stand up and enforce standards from here on out ...

The Redskins announced Wednesday that they have agreed on a contract extension with Ryan Kerrigan, who was scheduled to earn just more than $7 million heading into the final year of his contract. The new five-year deal is worth $57.5 million, of which $24.28 million is guaranteed. It makes him the NFL’s third-highest paid linebacker, behind Kansas City’s Justin Houston and Clay Matthews of Green Bay.

Well deserved, definitely an elite LB and the best player on that showerty skins roster

Ranked as the third most productive pass rusher last season, with 72 sacks+hits+hurries, behind only Houston (85), and Watt (119 kek)

He had a down season last year but barely saw the field. He also destroyed OBJ when lined up on him, not something that really anyone did last season. Chip seemed to have some issue with him (likely to do with his size) but that doesn't mean the guy is a flat out beast. Anyone that watches him play can see that

Smith has 32 scores for 41 turnovers, 71.5 passer rating, 11-18 record.
Tebow has 32 scores for 16 turnovers, 75.3 passer rating, 9-7 record including a playoff win

One has started for the last two seasons and would have been starting this season. The other was forced out of the broncos and jets and hasn't played since 2012.

Fair to say Mettenberger and Glennon >>> Mariota and Winston
But it'll probably just be two more good young QBs tossed aside because of high draft picks with m-m-muh upside. See the buccs start the season 2-6, Glennon called up to salvage the season, finish with a 7-9 record, then get asked to go back to the bench next season.

Good to see Hayne start off well, can only get better. Him, Hyde, Davis, and Miller should make for a good and interesting backfield.

Difference is, those first two blokes have low ceilings. You know what they are, they're okay. Nothing else.

Give Mariota and Winston a crack and back them in. Both can seriously play.

Winston has no running ability to speak of, and threw for 25/18 against an easy schedule of his senior year - absolute spud. Giving him a redshirt year or two in the pros could actually make him a solid starter, unlike feeding him to the sharks this season. Already been BTFO in one practice match, with a pick and a fumble. That's not even touching being a complete thug, like all FSU and Miami players.

Mariota is an enormous gimmick, was exposed hugely against OSU in the natty and it'll only get harder. Spread QBs never get good in the pros. Also threw a pick and fumbled in one practice match. 

Next year's draft will half a dozen QBs better than both - Cook, Hackenberg, Goff, Kessler, Hogan, and ofc whoever gets the gig at OSU. Even Boykin is as good (shower) as Mariota.

Very impressed with Hayne's first game.

Should easily make the roster

yeah pretty much a certainty to make it now, much better than other spuds like Bush and Hunter.

I just can't believe we're still talking about something as meaningless as the air pressure of footballs, especially when there's no evidence of any wrongdoing. We should be trying to work out how Brady managed to overcome a 10-point fourth quarter deficit in the superbowl vs the league's best defense - now that's something worth talking about.

None of the Panthers' current wideouts would start on most NFL teams, pretty unfair to judge him against Tannehill who has Jennings, Landry, Stills and Cameron. Rishard Matthews and Dion Sims are serviceable too. The Dolphins' O-Line is better too
I know all those guys didn't play this one game but over the season it should be obvious that Tannehill will put up better stats so its a bit tough to empirically say Cam is around the 50th best QB in the league

That list is a joke, especially when Teblow is on it.

Cam isn't that super though, he doesn't have weapons, but he misses high and often. It is a reason they went for Benjamin and have gone with tall receivers, it gives them a better chance of catching his misfires. It will be interesting to see how Funchess goes this year with Cam. Boykin is the other, he put up some decent numbers a couple of seasons ago in a stretch of games, he might be an interesting possession receiver in that offense if Cam can keep em low

The list was ironic (although I would prefer half a dozen of them to scam), but Tannehill is a lot better than that hack. You could have Jordy, Dez, Brown, Beckham, and Gronk but that won't stop him completely missing receivers.

Olsen is a top 5 TE in the league, his stats just don't always reflect that because he has an awful QB throwing it to him.

Derek Anderson threw for 700 yards at 67%, 5 TDs 0 Ints and 7.2 yards/pass at a 105.2 passer rating last season for the exact same team

I don't think this is a coincidence, but a huge reason for Tannehill's improvement is Bill Lazor. He was the QB coach and worked with Foles, when Lazor went over to the Dolphins Foles footwork seriously regressed. I actually drafted Tannehill in my FF league last season for this reason (and cut him early for Kirk Cousins which was stupid). He excels in those short to intermediate routes which pissed off Mike Wallace to no end but it keeps the chains moving. If they can add the deep ball he might have a pro bowl season. But if you were to put Tannehill in the situation that Cam is in now I don't think he will be going to well either.

I'll keep the packers as my tip for SB champs, though. Their WR depth is deep - Cobb, Adams, Abbrederis (when fit - had 1000 yards and 9 TDs as a senior for the Badgers), Janis, and Montgomery are all good players.

Nah, you couldn't. Jordy is a top 3 WR in the league, alongside Brown and Dez. Look at him absolutely burn doges week after week.

But basically,
Cobb slightly up
Adams, Janis, Montgomery gain draftable status in the late rounds
Rodgers slightly down

Yeah I am with Jukes. Jordy is a flat out beast that is very underrated. The guy is the complete receiver and it just helps he has Rodgers throwing him the ball. Not anyone can step in and have anywhere near the production he has. The Pack are going to need the run game to step up if they are going to be anywhere near first in their division. The Lions could overtake them now.

It's not the Lions who could overtake them.. It's the Minnesota Vikings. AP back, another year of Bridgewater, some nice pieces on defense. I prefer them to Detroit - Suh was he only reason they made the playoffs last year imo.

The thing is tho Winston is not an athletic QB who will run for 50 yards and a TD every game. He's miles behind the guys like Rodgers and Luck in the "pocket passer who can still run it pretty good" category, let alone guys like Kaepernick, Wilson, etc.

Winston had 7 rushing TDs in college - Mariota had 29 and Petty 21...

We'd keep him even if he wasn't that great, such great PR and exposure in Aus = more attention/viewers and $$$.

But Hunter is a pretty terrible player, Hayne is imo our third best RB behind Hyde and Davis, and it helps that he's an awesome returner - best on the roster I reckon.

So I just watched Philly put up 39 points in a half against the Pack. I know it is pre-season and that Rodgers didn't start, but damn it was impressive.

I wanted to see what we are paying to win the division and we are now the favourite. It lead me to check out a few other markets with some really good value.

Regular season MVP: JJ Watt $19. I think he has to be the best value pick, that is just ridiculous odds for someone that was so dominant last season. Only argument for him to be that highly priced is the fact he was so dominant and didn't win.

Most receiving yards: Julio Jones $7. Second fav to Brown at $6.50 but I think for yardage totals Julio could be the guy.

Highest scoring team: Philadelphia Eagles $8. The team is scoring at will in the pre-season, again I know it is pre-season, but holy f'ing sheet. At $8 they are ranked  5th and behind the Pats who will be without Brady for 4 games. Value bet easily there.

Most TD's: I have 4 guys for this category

Randall Cobb $17. He has a shoulder sprain, but he should be fine the start of the season. Packers will be missing Jordy and Randall was a TD beast last season catching 12. The fact he gets more looks means he should pull a few more down.

Megatron $21. If Megatron is healthy he is probably the best red zone threat in the league. It looks like he is healthy and won't be playing decoy, with a questionable run game and Tate to take a few looks away I think his TD totals bounce back.

Mike Evans $41. With inconsistent QB play last year, as a rookie Mike Evans still caught 12 TD's. Those numbers are super impressive, if Winston can build some chemistry with Evans there is no reason why that total can't rise, he is probably the riskiest of this bunch, but at $41 he still seems too good in terms of value.

This one is my sneaky fav

Jordan Matthews $51. He caught 8 TD's with Sanchize at QB for most of the year. See if you can watch his catch against the Pack early in the game, it is contested, he clunks it and his body control is amazing. If Philly score tons of points, this guy is going to get on the end of a lot of redzone looks. The kid is a beast and if Bradford is healthy expect those TD numbers to go up.

OBJ at $10 is also pretty good but I he obviously doesn't present the value that the other guys do.

Unfortunately all TD's count, including pick 6's. I don't think their offense is good enough to make this a real possibility.

I ended up with a free bonus bet, I tried to multi Philly and JJ Watt but it wouldn't let me. Philly are down to $7 no tied with the Broncos, I put the $5 on Watt at $19.

Fitzpatrick is a very underrated player - if he started for Seattle I'd still see them making at least the NFCCG. Game manager type who won't set you back like Geno has. Decker and Marshall are very good receivers and should combine for 2000 yards and 15 TDs at least, Mangold is the best centre in the league, and Ivory should be pretty serviceable.

What a surprise, another team who has lost to the Patriots coming up with an excuse. Join the line, Philly. Let's all pretend that the Eagles lost SB39 because of Patriot "cheating" and not McNabb/Reid falling apart down the stretch like they had in 20 other games. I'd never heard of a 10 minute, 2 minute offense like they ran down the stretch of the Super Bowl? But sure, let's accuse New England instead. Because hey, it's apparently easier to accuse a team of cheating rather than admitting a loss to a superior team.

Oh and none of this explains the Pats success since 2007.. It's not like they dropped off after "SpyGate". They just won the frickin Super Bowl.

http://espn.go.com/blog/new-england-patriots/post/_/id/4784943/tedy-bruschis-message-to-patriots-fans-refuse-to-be-brainwashed
Quote
"I have this theory, I refuse to be brainwashed by the NFL, based on so many reports, so many league sources, so many unnamed sources, that just aren’t true," Tedy Bruschi said on the "Dale and Holley Show." "I refuse to be brainwashed by what they release or what they say through unnamed sources. "So what do I say to Patriots fans? I say refuse to be brainwashed. Believe what you see on the screen. When you see them win, when you see them make plays, when you see them win the Super Bowl last year, that’s what you need to believe."
"You’ve heard it," he said, referencing past appearances when his emotions rose. "Today, gosh, I’m just tired of being angry, tired of having to defend all the time. I just go back to how secure I am of what happened. I read it and hear what some of the other players are saying. Let me be completely honest with you, I was reading some of it and I just chuckled at some of the things that some of the anonymous players and executives were saying. … It was like, ‘Man, no wonder you lost against us. You were thinking about so many other things.’”



Your guy says the Pats cheated, my guy says all these reports are utterly false. So where does this leave us you ask?

Great insight into the O-line formations vs Baltimore, the game plan vs Indy and 'The Play' in the SuperBowl.

@Plumdog and Holz. The clips are up on NFL.com.  Well worth a watch :) Wouldn't recommend it if you're a Pats hater though - Could imagine it being extremely difficult to sit through 40 minutes of watching a team you are jealous of talk about their 4th Super Bowl win in the last 13 years ;)

Post by: Mat0369 on September 11, 2015, 06:14:47 PM
What a surprise, another team who has lost to the Patriots coming up with an excuse. Join the line, Philly. Let's all pretend that the Eagles lost SB39 because of Patriot "cheating" and not McNabb/Reid falling apart down the stretch like they had in 20 other games. I'd never heard of a 10 minute, 2 minute offense like they ran down the stretch of the Super Bowl? But sure, let's accuse New England instead. Because hey, it's apparently easier to accuse a team of cheating rather than admitting a loss to a superior team.

Oh and none of this explains the Pats success since 2007.. It's not like they dropped off after "SpyGate". They just won the frickin Super Bowl.

So it looks like you didn't read the article and are instead spitting the shower of the most biased New England homer that is Bill Simmons

The hack of a commish covered this up the same way he tried to cover up the Ray Rice situation. If it was exposed that the 'dynasty' that was the Pats had cheated it would have been bad for the league. It harms the brand, and thus compromises the league's position when their negotiating TV contracts. Cheating this rampant can chase some sponsors away, or (at the very least) they may not want to pay as much.  You don't want the public to get the idea that the competition isn't honest. Surprise, surprise that Kraft was his biggest supporter up until he took aim at the golden boy for deflating footballs.

One of the things I laughed at was the Patriots defense that "it didn't really help". dog please! If it didn't work they wouldn't have gone to such great lengths to do it. Not directing this directly at you Jay, but if you don't think the Pats knowing what teams were calling on defense affected the outcome you are an fing moron.  Another part that was funny is that it worked best on teams that were lazy, like the Bills and Dolphins.

The extent of their cheating wasn't just down to filming signals. They were known to go into the visitors locker room and steal the sheet that had the 1st 20 plays scripted(according to the article). So known for it that some teams would print out fake scripted plays for them to steal.

Willie McGinest, on Total Access just had a bit of a slip while talking about the Patriots stealing play sheets and such from the locker room. He said that (I'm paraphrasing) "if a team is dumb enough to leave stuff laying around... I'm sure they all know that it goes on...".

So not fully a 'confirmation', but close. "I'm sure they all know that it goes on".
 
Then you have the QB to OC head set getting scrambled on critical downs

Suppose it helped by a single score? FG or TD. Suppose it helped by a single 3rd down conversion?

How many of those Super Bowls were Patriots blow outs? Oh wait, none of them. The margin of victory on those games was tiny. So a tiny bit of help COULD mean a world of difference. If it didn't, then it was pointless for them to cheat by doing it.

Set the Super Bowls to one side for a moment. The article says that they cheated in this way in at least 40 games? Alter a game here and there, and you wind up in the playoffs or with HFA and not playing on the road.

Will the history books be changed to award the Panthers, Rams and Eagles those three Super Bowls? Of course not. An asterisk won't even be added (although it should). It's in the past. But the past informs the present and the same cheating regime is still in power in New England and apparently still looking for ways to cheat.

In regards to the Philly one, Eagles players came out after the game and said something was up, they just felt validated when Spygate broke. I still want to see that asterisk in every record book. They "won" that game at our expense, and as far as I'm concerned if we were robbed of it - they shouldn't be allowed to proclaim it as theirs either. So it's not as much about us getting anything from it, but rather taking away what they didn't truly earn. The same way the Storm were stripped of their premierships when they were found to have cheated the salary cap. The fact that they were doing this shady shower during this era it still pisses me off that the Eagles lost the chance to win their 1st SB because the other team didn't play fairly. F that and f the cheats.

Title: Re: NFL Season 2015/2016
Post by: Jay on September 11, 2015, 08:59:21 PM
I appreciate your posts Mat, you actually at least try and add some basis to your points rather than just blatant jealousy like it is with most Pats haters. You might not like Simmons, but the guy speaks with no filter, and has an answer for all the shower that gets tossed around about the Pats. Not sure how you can say the commish tried to cover it up.. We copped a massive penalty because of Spygate, and now a massive one for deflategate (with no proof whatsoever).

One thing I don't understand about the whole asterisk thing, is that the Pats have been just as good since SpyGate too? The whole argument was "hurt durr, the Pats haven't won since Spygate" and then they won last season so people had to resort to this deflating footballs nonsense - seriously, if anyone says that had any impact on the result then they are insane. Pats won last year fair and square, you guys are just going to have to accept that. They've also been to 2 more and win double digit games every year. It's not  like they are some team who was great, then a scandal occurred, and they turned to shower. It's gotten ridiculous, like, are you going to put an asterisk next to the Pats drafting Gronk too? They're a successful organisation dude. You have to be to win double digit games every year.

The Eagles one was pretty conclusive. You just sound bitter tbh man.. You lost that game because you had Mcnabb not Brady, and that's the end of the story. Don't blame the Pats, blame the 10-minute 2-minute drill.

For the record, I have never said that Belichick isn't a shady dude. Honestly, I believe he just doesn't give a flower what everyone thinks, he just wins games and it rubs people the wrong way. Look at the Baltimore game last year, the Pats started using tricky offensive line formations and dudes were calling it 'unsportsmanlike' etc etc. Belichick just doesn't care, and whether you like it or not that's what he does. What I've always said though, is that Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all-time. And it's a shame that Belichick's shiftiness has caused some morons to try and use that to twist Brady's legacy. Don't get me wrong, I love having Belichick coaching our team, because he wins. But Brady is just on another level man. I obviously can't debate that knowing signals would make it easier to play defense, but you can't use that shower to discredit Brady. It's gotten to the point where some guys (not naming names) can't even acknowledge a good throw by Tom without bringing up this 'asterisk' rubbish - which is just sad. I know you watch a lot of football Mat, out of any QB who would you have trusted the most  going in to the 4th quarter of the SuperBowl down 10 vs the league's best defense? The answer is Brady, man. The way he reads defenses, adapts his game to attack the weaknesses, has consistently been elite no matter the receiving core, has dominated in huge playoff games. There's no one better man, and that's what bugs me most about the various controversies - one of the best QBs we've ever seen is being underappreciated.

We can go back and forth on all the different controversies, but at the end of the day, the Pats won 3 SuperBowls in the early 2000s, and another last season. Their longevity to me (you could say it's Spurs-like) eliminates the idea that those first 3 SuperBowls weren't "legit". The record books aren't going to be changed man, and there won't be any asterisks added. If you want to go down that route, let's talk about how Jerry Rice admitted to using adhesive substances on his gloves? Every team has had their indiscretions, the Pats just get magnified because how successful they've been. Atlanta pumped crowd noise into their stadium but no one cared because they haven't won anything. I definitely wouldn't trade in the last 13 years of Pats success.. If your team wins 4 SuperBowls but you have to argue with a few dudes on the internet, thats a trade-off I'll take every flowering time.

AJ Green's signing also good business by the bengals (they still stink, tho).

And ofc the most pathetic scum team in the league raiders sign up that thug Aldon Smith, hope they rot at 3-13 again - Carr and Cooper are the only supportable starters they have.

"Pays on Jarryd Hayne to make 1 or more yard either through a rush, reception, kick or punt return, interception or fumble return.

Bets refunded if Hayne does not play at least one snap."

Hayne was eventually pulled from punt return duty for Bruce Ellington but Tomsula confirmed that was because the Aussie was needed to focus on back-up running back duties after an early calf injury to Reggie Bush.

“We put him out there for the next two punts. He would have stayed out there all day,” Tomsula said, speaking at a 49ers press conference on Wednesday.

Well that's better I guess. And actually thinking about it more, Bush missing would help Hayne, no way they go in with only 2 RB's, but I'd say if Bush misses, Davis would still be the backup and Hayne would handle returns

Why would you take a knee when you have 30+ seconds and 2 time outs to work with - that's not playing for the win/negative football

Because they have Alex Smith at QB not Rodgers, Manning, Brady etc. Would be hard to dink and dunk the whole field in just 30 seconds. Imo you just take OT - the Broncos D has a load of play makers.

Btw, how was Wilson's execution terrible in the final play last year?

Firstly, Smith has a far better deep arm than your chump that's for sure. He showed that at Utah, just he's been in two run-first offenses with strong tight-ends, but not much out wide.

35 seconds and 2 timeouts, only needed 50 yards to get into comfortable (47 yarder) FG range. That's easy.

And on the second part, YOU CANNOT MISS A RECEIVER ON A SLANT THAT BADLY. Had Peyt done that he'd be absolutely crucified, instead it's a bad play-call apparently. That's a routine play that most good NFL QBs would make every time. He threw it to the advantage of the DB. But with all mistakes Wilson makes it's hidden and blamed on the coaches/OL/receivers/whatever. I would nail that throw 999 times out of 1000.

But with all mistakes Wilson makes it's hidden and blamed on the coaches/OL/receivers/whatever. I would nail that throw 999 times out of 1000.
Smith threw only 2.5% of his passes in the 21-30 yard range (the lowest in the league), only 1.7% in the 31-40 yard range (2nd lowest in the league) and 0.2% on 40+ yard throws (lowest in the league). He also had an Air Yards per attempt of 2.45, compared to Brady's 4.84. Has not shown anything in his entire career to even suggest that he is competent throwing deep. If you can go back to college to defend Smith, I can go back to 2007 to defend Brady.. Where he thew 73 deep balls and connected on 50.7%, the best mark in the league.

Go back and watch the Wilson throw, the ball was thrown right to Lockette, Butler just came in and bumped him off it. It was a horrible play call. Why not call a bootleg and have Wilson roll out so he can just throw it out the bounds and stop the clock if the throw isn't there. Even if Butler doesn't make it to the spot, the ball still could have popped up out of Lockette's hands and been picked off too. The call to throw wasn't that bad, but a drop-back slant pass was just silly.

You just used stats to prove...what I said? He's played in two run-first NFL offenses (Niners w/ Gore and Chiefs w/ Charles), with the best offensive weapon being the tight end (Davis and Kelce), and TEs usually aren't the receiver to go vertical. Nolan/Singletary/Harbaugh and Reid aren't going to go against their game plan because it's cool to throw it long, no matter who's at QB.

I know this might sound a little odd/technical to those like you who have never actually played the sport, but on a slant when there's a DB in the immediate vicinity of where the receiver is running to, you throw it right at (using arm strength) or to the immediate side of the receiver to ensure they get it - a catch and 75% chance of a TD is far better than a 50/50 TD/INT chance. The throw was about 18 inches too far, which is inexcusable for a QB at my level, let alone somebody that gets $20mil a year, on a pass that goes about 6 total yards.

Quick slant plays are the bee's knees when you need only a few yards, that's how I scored the go-ahead last-quarter TD in our grannie last year.

So if we both agree that Smith never throws deep. How can you possibly know that he's better than Brady, who when he actually had a downfield threat, led the league in accuracy on deep balls? Granted, Brady doesn't throw deep much anymore, so I don't know if he's still great at it, but it's more because of the receivers he's got to work with - none are really gonna beat you downfield.

Yeah but it's 2nd down!!! You don't need to go high-risk on that play. You can run the ball, and you've still got a timeout if you don't get in. So many better plays you could run than a slant in the middle of the end-zone..

They shouldn't have been running the ball there anyway.

And Jay is right, Smith's arm is horrible. He has Maclin now with Andy Reid calling plays. If they wanted to go deep, they would. The one throw he tries over 20 yards wobbles in the air and is picked off in the RZ. How the Chiefs blew that game I will never know.

I didn't actually finish watching the game until Thursday night. I had the fridge repair guy come over to fix the not broken fridge on Tuesday morning and work has been nuts the last few days. I haven't even really had time to scratch my balls let alone bring up a 4 day old game.

Kiko made that one great interception but couldn't lay a tackle or get off a block. The RB's not named Sproles sucked. Funny how once Shady was traded it was all him 'dancing' and not the line sucking and how much more efficient we would be with all these north south runners. The secondary looked like the same old getting torched while being left on an island. There were a couple of dropped picks by Jenkins. I don't get why you have Maxwell play LCB when he was a RCB his entire time in Seattle. His mechanics will be all messed up similar to switching tackle position. So we basically got this

They looked much better in the second half so I am not totally worried. Bradford started to light it up. Quinn is a great defensive coach so that unit improving for the Falcons isn't surprising. Chip screwed up rushing the FG unit out and JMatt dropped a ball that he doesn't drop resulting in the last pick. Chip knows if this blows up he will probably bail on us for college. I am expecting this though

Hmmm might have a few little wagers this weeked

No way the Falcons are a field goal underdog to Eli. 2.14 straight out on Sportsbet is tempting

But the real easy money is the Pats 1.99 giving only 1 point to Buffalo. I know it's Rex Ryan but with Shady banged up? That's a YOINK! if I ever saw one

Other one is the Dallas-Philly game, Bradford and DeMarco still fitting in, no Dez and the point total set at 55. I'm smashing the Under

I dont think that's easy money. We're missing basically our whole offensive line - not a good thing vs the Bills. I just hope Brady gets out of their alive.
Title: Re: NFL Season 2015/2016
Post by: Mat0369 on September 19, 2015, 01:18:23 PM
I have a few random stats for your bets. There was a guy that was posting them last year on a site I go on, I will copy and paste them

Monday night's 41-14 loss in Kansas City dropped the Patriots to 1-5 straight up and 0-6 against the spread on natural grass this season and last combined (they are 14-2 straight up in the rest of their games!) - and they have now non-covered eight in a row on grass, their last spread cover thereon coming in the 2012 season opener at Tennessee.
 
Clearly it makes a great deal of difference to the Patriots what type of surface they play on.

I had picked Cincy to win in my free multi I had, this guy posted this depressingly after

The Patriots are 4-2 on the road on artificial turf this season and last combined - and with Cincinnati not having won in New England since 1986 and having the NFL's second-worst record coming off a bye week (7-17-1, the tie coming against us in 2008), New England is a very solid pick this week.

These things have failed a couple of times this season already though: Until Week 1, the Bills had never even come close to beating the Bears in Chicago, the Broncos had lost six in a row to the Colts, and the Giants hadn't lost in Detroit since 1983; and until Week 2, the Bears had lost eight in a row at San Francisco, getting blown out in virtually every one of them, and the Eagles had been 0-5 against the spread in their last five vs. the Colts.

So going off those stats, the Pats should cover the spread easily and are more then likely to win since Ralph Wilson Stadium is Astro Turf

The next one

When the Falcons lost 41-28 at Minnesota this past Sunday as a 3-point favorite, it was their ninth consecutive loss at an outdoor stadium (which the Vikings are playing at this year and next).
 
Worse yet, the Falcons haven't even been competitive in the vast majority of these games, losing all but two by double digits (with one of the two single-digit defeats coming at Green Bay without Aaron Rodgers last December 8) and getting outscored 280-177, for an average defeat margin of 11.4 points per game.
 
By the way, Atlanta's lone road victory in 2013 took place at the domed Rogers Centre (retractable roof was closed) in Toronto, over the Bills, one week before the aforementioned loss to the Packers.

Something to think about, as the Falcons remain outdoors this week, taking on the Giants as just a 3-point underdog (opening line).

This was before LAST years matchup

The Falcons broke the streak winning in Tampa and Carolina last season. It is still something to consider. I think the Giants are the smart pick in terms of the money based on that.

Last one

With their loss to the previously-winless Giants this past Sunday, the Texans are now 6-30 on artificial turf since 2004, compared with 68-63 in the rest of their games (playoffs included) over the same period.
 
Why this truly massive difference in records - especially in an era where the "new" artificial turf, i.e., FieldTurf, is supposed to mimic natural grass so closely?

The Texans had two more games on artificial turf in 2014: At Dallas on October 5th, and at Indianapolis - where they have never won, in franchise history, not even in the year the Colts went 2-14 - on December 14th.

Furthermore, the Texans are 10-25-1 against the spread in those 36 artificial-turf games since 2004, including 1-11-1 against the spread in their last 13.
 
At one point, they lost 17 consecutive games on artificial turf, ending the streak with a 28-17 win at Cincinnati on October 18, 2009.  They had been outscored by 282 points - an average defeat margin of 16.6 points - in those 17 losses.

Texans play the Panthers on natural grass this weekend. They should cover the spread and I have picked them straight up and think they will win.

Interestingly enough

Post by: Jukes on September 19, 2015, 08:38:39 PM
So I've been playing a fair bit of the new madden recently because no assignments and it gives me something to do while I listen to podcasts, few things:
1. IT'S RIDICULOUSLY EASY. I play it on All-Madden, but still as my RB I just had a 19-0 season with 5000 rushing yards, 70 rushing TDs, 2300 receiving yards, 30 receiving TDs, 5 punt-return TDs, and 3 kick-return TDs with the niners OL, averaging almost 70 points per game (yeah, I no-huddle a lot)
2. Idk if it's just me, but the return game has been made too easy. I just cut to the other side and sprint my way to the endzone.
3. The amount of holding and block-in-the-back calls are too damn high. I appreciate that they're actually trying to have more penalties in the game because the last few years you can go most games without having any, but sometimes it's just stupid where players not involved in the play do it. This is especially aggravating in the return game - I've had about a half dozen return TDs called back for things that had no effect on the return, such as a block in the back on a punt return where I had 1 more yard until the endzone.
4. Lots of glitches with presentation. Again.
5. Supersim makes your pass rush OP. Had Aaron Lynch pick up 30 sacks last season, with 20 and 18 by other players.

Overall it's almost the exact same as last year, glad my brother paid for it and not me.

So it turns out I have a free bet. Took my own advice and have taken New England (-1), Texans (+3) and Giants (-2.5) to cover the spread. Have also added Raiders to cover the spread since the Ravens have spent the whole week on the road (+6) and Lions straight up @$2.10. I have picked the Raiders to win in my pick em but to cover I am going with the spread on that, same with the Texans.

They are going to go all out to stop Olsen and I wouldn't be surprised if they have Watt spy and destroy Cam. They played a lot better when they benched Hoyer last week as well. Their QB situation is still awful, but can still score with Hopkins at WR.

I had picked the Bills before I went back and read the stats about the Pats on the road on artificial turf. Add in the fact Shady isn't healthy and might not be his explosive self. I would still start him in FF leagues, but he might not go off like he would if he was 100% and they need a big game from Shady. I think that pick could be the riskiest of the lot when all things are considered.

Yeah the Pats pick is the riskiest of the lot by a mile - I'm not confident. I think we'll struggle to move the ball, but in saying that, I think the Bills might as well especially with Shady banged up.

Post by: Mat0369 on September 20, 2015, 11:05:51 PM
I know the Bills have a pretty good D, but it is going to be tough to stop Gronk. I don't think the Pats will be able to run the ball very well, but if Gronk can get a score or two it's going to make it tough. If Shady was 100% I would probably have stuck with the Bills, he is going to cause so many headaches for that defense.

JJ Watt is listed as the 3rd TE for the Panthers today. Dude is going to score TD's on both sides of the ball!!!

Not a lot on the betting scene this week either. Atlanta is still too long against Weeden @1.87, Maybe the Bills against the Dolphins and the Raiders against Cleveland because Josh McCown is useless but seems like a really skipable week

Dolphins will win that game. I haven't looked at any favorites this week but I have seen some oddly one sided games according to the fans in pick em leagues.

Vikes to beat the Chargers. I think this is San Diego's second week on the road which is probably why they are long odds, we saw how that went for the Ravens against the Raiders last week, but I think the Chargers are the better team on paper and would normally win

Bills to beat Miami. I read these interesting stats while doing my fantasy research this week

We saw in Week 2 against Jacksonville that Tannehill can be highly productive when asked to carry the offense since he attempted 44 passes with 30 completions for 359 yards and two touchdowns. Buffalo's pass defense also just got shredded for 466 passing yards and three touchdowns by Brady and has allowed at least 21 Fantasy points to Andrew Luck and Brady this year. And Tannehill has been solid against Buffalo at home in his career. In three career meetings vs. the Bills in Miami, he has at least 19 Fantasy points in each outing with eight touchdowns over that span. The big downside for Tannehill this week is he has a bad history against Rex Ryan during his tenure with the Jets, but Tannehill has scored multiple touchdowns in every home opener of his career.

The Dolphins are 34-14-1 in home openers, including a current three-game winning streak. The Dolphins beat Oakland (35-13) in 2012, Atlanta (27-23) in 2013, and New England (33-20) last year.

I think the Dolphins make it 4 in a row for home openers.

Jets to beat the Eagles. So New York has a beastly defense and Philly just imploded. Get ready for this, the Eagles have NEVER lost to the Jets in games that count (regular season and playoffs). You also have a banged up Revis, Cromartie, Decker and Ivory heading into this game with the turnover prone Fitzpatrick and an Eagles offense that will look to finally get rolling.

Denver to beat Detroit. The Denver D is what has kept them in games the last couple of weeks, that offense is anemic and struggling to get rolling. The Broncos have escaped with wins by the skin of their teeth and Detroit is finally playing at home. The Lions still have a decent front 4 without Suh so I expect them to get some pressure on Manning behind that crappy Broncos O-line.

Well we only need a fumble recovery for a TD and a Punt/Kick return for a TD for the full range of ways you can score

But that last one would require Kaepernick not to throw a pick within 3 downs

Anyone else playing Pigskin Pick'em against the spread? I missed the first week but was 9-7 in week 2 and 11-5 in week 3. Some tough games to pick this week though, especially the Thursday night one.. Don't feel confident in Ravens winning by over 2.5 on the road, but then the other option is Vick with only a 2.5 head-start  :-\ will probs take Pittsburgh with the points.

Oh and the games on 7mate this Monday are Jets at Dolphins, Eagles vs Redskins, Packers at Niners and Cowboys at Saints. 4 games :D sucks that we keep having to see the awful 49ers every week though just because Hayne might play a snap or two :(

But yeah, Arizona -4.5 looks good to me. Rams have really struggled to put points on the board in the last couple of weeks, and that's something Arizona can do a lot of. I think Arizona are a legit top 3-4 team but the bookies haven't really adjusted to that yet, and they're at home too.. Would guess they'd win by at least a touchdown.

I still need to see more from Carolina. Look at the QBs they've beaten so far.. Blake Bortles, Ryan Mallett, Luke McCown and Jameis Winston. Has any team ever had a softer start? Looking at the schedule, Atlanta should run away with the division, which will leave Carolina competing with teams like Dallas, Philly, Minnesota and St Louis for the final wildcard spot. The team has 8-8 written all over it, which I guess could be enough to scrape in but they probably need 9 wins.. If they do make it, I look forward to betting against them in round 1 of the playoffs :P

wasssah with Kaep ??? his arm looked cooked today, no confidence at all

Exactly, his confidence is shot - playing nothing like the QB who lead us to the owl and almost to another. Not to take anything away from the GB defence which is pretty good, but our OL and running game have done him no favours since week one, and our TEs are either shower and injured (Davis) or very inexperienced (Vance, Bell)

yeah i saw a few of his deep balls slice right badly then a short pass he just didnt pull the trigger on and it tumbled badly ???

The Eagles look pretty dreadful.. Think the Giants are the clear favourites for the NFC East :o
ayyyy whoah hold up, dont discount them Cowboys, wounded or not
Hmm maybe, the Dez injury scares me though.. Reminds me of KD last year, they rushed him back and it just got worse. These types of injuries tend to take longer than expected  :-X
yeah there is some variables for sure, IF we can get Hardy, Gregory, Romo and Dez in the lineup with 6 games to go...

Panthers 4-0. Just going along quietly into their Bye. Be ready Seattle, Carolina are coming 8)
when u only need to win 7 games to make the playoffs... u have reason to be happy
I still need to see more from Carolina. Look at the QBs they've beaten so far.. Blake Bortles, Ryan Mallett, Luke McCown and Jameis Winston. Has any team ever had a softer start? Looking at the schedule, Atlanta should run away with the division, which will leave Carolina competing with teams like Dallas, Philly, Minnesota and St Louis for the final wildcard spot. The team has 8-8 written all over it, which I guess could be enough to scrape in but they probably need 9 wins.. If they do make it, I look forward to betting against them in round 1 of the playoffs :P
inb4 12-4 and SuperBowl champs.

Fitzpatrick is actually kinda competent. If Pittsburgh had him instead of Vick Thursday night, they would've won by like 2 touchdowns.

On the other side, Tannehill looks like he should be benched  :-X

I feel bad for Tannehill, that run game and line is awful. Not to mention that D

The Eagles look pretty dreadful.. Think the Giants are the clear favourites for the NFC East :o

We suck and Chip is going to run back off to Oregon leaving us his mess. At least the mess is somewhat salvageable if we fix the O-line. Giants would have to be favs for the division. They beat a decent Bills team (although they were missing Shady and Watkins) have choked 2 leads as well in the 4th as well.

The Falcons are the other team that will make the playoffs, they should win that division.

Saints going full choke mode.

Yeah and I think Carpenter missed a 30 yarder today as well. For as much as we make fun of kickers having a solid and reliable one is quite important

I reckon if teams don't completely trust their kickers from 40+ yards out they should be much more aggressive on 4th downs than they are now in that 25-50 yard range where it's not as ideal to punt

Wasn't really his fault this time, he went for the catch because he thought one of his teammates would get hit by the ball (Which makes it a live ball Green Bay could have recovered) and had one of his teammates pushed into him.

"Rule 12, Section 4, Article 1: it is an illegal bat if a) player of either team bats or punches a loose ball in any direction, if it is either end-zone. If the penalty is by the defense, it is an automatic first down."

Basically, Detroit should have had the ball from the half-yard line. Seattle again get away with a bs victory.

A few stats from the game that are pretty awesome.


Bennie Logan and Fletcher Cox combined to record 11 tackles—four for loss—and 4.0 sacks, while the unit as a whole went on to produce four turnovers. Cox had six solo tackles, 3.0 sacks and two forced fumbles alone.


Hicks had another fumble recovery for the season in this game and an almost interception. Hicks' numbers in roughly 3.5 games this season: 27 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble, an INT, three fumble recoveries, two pass breakups, and he knocked out Tony Romo for half the season.


DeMeco Ryans had his first forced fumble in his time with the Eagles.


Malcolm Jenkins had another two tackles for loss playing the safety position. He flew into the backfield twice to hit Ingram behind the line of scrimmage. That brings his total up to 5 for the season.

3rd and 6 I think it was. Snap, Vick looking for a pass, notices the gap up the middle and gains 24 yards! Which put them right within range.

Holy shower this is nuts what an ending
Vick looking like Tebow with that clutch drive
Blasphemy!
3rd and 6 I think it was. Snap, Vick looking for a pass, notices the gap up the middle and gains 24 yards! Which put them right within range.

Also threw a nice ~20 yarder just before. Was a huge drive which ended just in time.
Did he throw a walk-off TD in over-time, in the playoffs, on the road? Tebow #ForeverElite

If only 7mate weren't assholes who keep broadcasting the 49ers instead of games that might actually be good.

And in the other conference, we get a rematch of last year's 45-7 AFC championship game! Brady vs Luck IV, in the four games they've played, the Pats have outscored Indy 189 to 73 (http://content.boards.philadelphiaeagles.com/public/style_emoticons/default/sideroll.gif) that's not a typo...

And maybe if the Colts somehow manage to win, they might raise another banner! "Week 6 winners!"

And the Ravens aren't a big team, they are irrelevant this year like the 9'ers.

The teams Carolina have beaten are a combined 9-20. Yes they should make the playoffs, it's almost impossible not to when you start 5-0, but they don't have the weapons on offense to go with the good teams in the post-season. I don't think they can stop the run very well either.

Yes. Both pretty good but not great, and no rivalry there like Pats vs Jets. One thing that might make it interesting is that it might have playoff implications, even this early in the season..

The last time we played the Panthers it was a great game. We put up over 40 points and I think shut them out until the last couple minutes of the game  :P

I think we get three pretty good games, 2 rivalry games even though one is missing half their offensive starters that matter and the other has been incompetent for the better part of 5 years and then we get two pretty good defensive sides with enigmatic QB's playing off. Our offense also has the potential to put up record numbers in any game but then Bradfails throws 4 picks instead.

Eagles win comfortably, and anyone that says otherwise isn't a real fan.

Any my team that 'isn't a threat' is expected to outscore yours by 40 points this week. Just saying
My QB is expected to score 0 that is part of the problem there. Also I'm sure your Bell was expected to outscore Riddick last week ;)

He ain't putting up 40 points though.

And both defense's are pretty legit, the thing is the Panthers are missing their best WR for the year. If we can get that offense to be anything similar to the first half of last year teams are screwed.

I think Bradford just has to game manage - cut the turnovers, hand the ball off, and be efficient. If he can run the offense at about a 9-14 ranked mark in the league then I think that defense is good enough for Philly to win the division and perhaps a playoff game.

We can't trust DeMarco Mary to run the ball though because he keeps getting tackled behind the line of scrimmage  :P

The irony of this is I see so many Eagles fans happy Shady is gone, but he turned so many of those negative 5 yard runs into 0 yard runs by making people miss and getting back to the line of scrimmage. Ryan Mathews on the other hand has been pretty damn legit at RB. He and Sproles have been excellent apart from a few dropped balls.

I think we both said at the time that letting Shady go was a terrible mistake. It's certainly looking like it at the moment.

Part of me thinks that the main reason they signed Murray was just to flower with Dallas. And in that aspect, it's worked pretty well.

When you look at the deal on paper it isn't entirely horrible. Basically the trade resulted in this happening

Out: Shady

In: Kiko, Murray and Mathews.

The money they saved from the Shady move allowed them to sign the other two and bring in Kiko. The thing is Kiko has a partially torn ACL again, Murray struggles and doesn't fit the scheme and Mathews while being productive is in a time share. The worst part of Chip's offseason is the straight out neglect for the O-line. We cut Mathis and sign no one going to our backups that got slaughtered last season. We also have Peters who is ageing and declining. I don't think our offensive core is better then last year, maybe deeper at some of the skills positions but 100% not better.

So some interesting injury news heading into this week.

Peterson is expected to play for the Vikes but is suffering an illness which has seen him in doubt. Diggs is also expected to start for the Vikes at WR

Dion Lewis is expected to miss the Jets game with an abdomen injury. LaFell I think is also active

Matt Jones will get a big workload with Chris Thompson doubtful.

Yeldon is expected to play for the Jags although being listed as Questionable.

Maclin and John Brown are both expected to line up although they are listed as questionable with concussion and a hamstring

Jordan Reed is expected to return but he is a walking injury waiting to happen

Dez is officially out

Big Ben is a last second decision to see if he plays or not.

One positive of getting up early for the Pats game is that I'll be able to see which of my questionable's are going to play >:D

Not overly confident though. The Jets are a tough matchup for us. Am not too worried about their defense, Brady has great stats when playing the league's #1 ranked defense.. But they can run the ball really well, and I'm not sold on our ability to stop it. But at the end of the day, it's Ryan Fitzpatrick in Foxboro so should win, but I think it will be a tough game.

To be fair, I was quite worried watching the game this morning. We did not play well at all. We had 10 dropped passes, and none of them were hard. Edelman dropped a wide-open TD pass, something I'd barely seen him do up until last week and LaFell played probably the worst WR game this year - liked seeing him finally get back out on the field though. But it's good to know that even when we don't execute well at all, we can still pick up a win vs a good team. Brady was great and much better than the stats show (because of all the drops) as well as Amendola and Gronk who carried our passing game. We can't run vs good defenses either, which makes it a little tougher on Brady. But we couldn't in the playoffs last year, apart from the Colts game, and that worked out okay.

Defense I am not thrilled with although they did well against the run today. Our defensive backs are mostly tiny which will worry me in the playoffs when team's throw deep balls to guys like AJ Green, Demarius and Brown. And then the offensive line is completely banged up, so just hoping we can get some guys back so they have time to build some continuity before the playoffs.

But yeah there's probably no need to be this critical as we have a great shot at the 1-seed and home-field throughout the playoffs, which is huge. As far as 16-0 goes, that's definitely not something I'm striving for us to achieve, or even want at this stage. As long as we get into the playoffs healthy and rested with home-field, it's been a great regular season.

Man these teams are mediocre.

its the battle of who is the least bad.

Panthers to be the least convincing 6-0 team ever
Agreed. They've beaten Blake Bortles, Ryan Mallett, Luke McCown, Jameis Winston, Russel Wilson, and now Sam Bradford. Yes the Seahawks win was legit, and good on them, but the rest are pathetic quarterbacks. It isn't enough to make me think they are any better than a border-line playoff team. They remind me of the 2013 Chiefs who started the year 9-0 with wins against lots of poor teams, and then finished 2-5 and lost in the first-round of the playoffs. I'm predicting something similar - they finish at least 3 games short of Atlanta for the division, but scrape in as a wild-card and get knocked out within the first two weeks.

Besides, New England alone have started 6-0 three times since 2004 so it isn't even all that uncommon ;) I have nothing against Carolina but every year there is 1 or 2 unproven teams that people get over-hyped about, and then at the end of the day the cream always rises to the top. They might end up being good, but so far, they've only had 1 game which has been mildly impressive. Beat Aaron Rodgers in week 9 and then I'll start giving them some credit.

First time in Panthers history at 6-0 so the long time supporters (not me) have every right to be happy.

And you do have something against them, you're slightly annoyed that I managed to pick a team that is doing well.

I have been really critical of Bradfails but this loss is on the WR's. He played well enough to win. Jordan Matthews is mentally shot since he had that drop against the Falcons in week 1, the guy had some sure hands prior to that. Ertz joined the party late but was good the majority of the game. Austin and Huff both had killer drops as well. This offense needs to get clicking and fast. I would seriously look at demoting DeMarco Mary and starting Mathews. Add in the uninspired offensive play calling. Sweep, sweep, pass to flat. Sweep, sweep, drop.

Were they investigated, let alone penalized? Nope.

If Luck in fact had fractured ribs then that's a serious injury, and yet they haven't even listed Luck with a rib injury on any injury reports this season... Would expect a pretty heavy fine and/or loss of picks. It's pretty hilarious though, they start the biggest witch hunt in NFL history w/ no actual envidence, yet a few months later it seems as if they've bent the rules for something as stupid as this (http://content.boards.philadelphiaeagles.com/public/style_emoticons/default/sideroll.gif)

Thing is he missed games with a shoulder, they only generally list only the one injury in injury reports. They will probably use a loophole of some kind with this that the NFL will look to close.

Also on a side note, if I am Luck I don't want it getting out I had broken ribs either, it puts a big X on the area. They generally have to wear one of the Kevlar style vest like Mike Pick did a few years ago to play through it

Colin Kaepernick is going to the bench.

According to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport the 49ers have decided to bench the struggling quarterback, per a source informed of the situation.

Blaine Gabbert will start when the 49ers take on the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

Narrative in the media if Luck pulls this off: "Best QB of all-time produces the greatest, most inspirational, season-saving comeback in NFL history"

Reality: 17/31 for 183 yards, 2 picks with a passer rating of of 67, and they could have won by at least a TD if they'd started Hasselback.
Or he could throw his third pick of the game to lose it :D

Prime Time Dalton hasn't had to do much, he butchered the throw to AJ  and the flag came out, ended up throwing a couple of balls up to Eifert which he made the play on for TD's.

I liked that drive since it had a lot of Gio.

So this explains why Cole Beasley was open all the time



Quote
Safety Malcolm Jenkins was a full participant in Thursday's training session. He revealed that he suffered a concussion on a tackle in the second quarter of the overtime win over Dallas, but did not notify the coaches or doctors and knowingly played on. Head coach Chip Kelly was not happy when he learned that Jenkins hid the concussion from the team.

"We’ve talked about it. I’ve talked with him. He’s heard from his mom and he’s heard from his wife," Kelly said. "His long-term health is the most important thing to us and we will continue to monitor him as we go and see if he is able to play on Sunday."

Jenkins said that he expects to play Sunday. He had to be successfully go through the NFL's concussion protocol before returning to practice.

Again? He already did once this off season  (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2015/4/1/8326111/tony-romo-restructures-deal-with-cowboys-according-to-report)



Look at Romo's cap numbers.
Age..Year..Base..............Prorated.........Cap................Dead..............Savings
35....2015..$17,000,000..$10,773,000...$27,773,000..$44,908,000...-$17,135,000
36... 2016..$8,500,000....$9,135,000.....$17,635,000..$19,135,000...-$1,500,000

39....2019..$20,500,000..$0...................$20,500,000..$0....................$20,500,000
oy




Edit: Sorry, the above was his PREVIOUS (2014) restructure. I got it from here

For whatever reason, his current numbers are not being populated on his player page. Let me try to get them.

Edit2: Here they are
Year...Cap...............Dead...............Savings
2015..$14,973,000..$45,908,000...($30,935,000)
2016..$20,835,000..$31,935,000...($11,100,000)
2017..$24,700,000..$19,600,000...$5,100,000
2018..$25,200,000..$8,900,000.....$16,300,000
2019..$23,700,000..$3,200,000.....$20,500,000

Holy crap that's awful. Now I remember why I was laughing at them when they redid his deal.



Quote
It's thanks to all the massive restructures they have done. They keep pushing back his cap number to try to win now. And while it has kept most of the team together, every year they keep losing key players. Ware, Murray.... in about 2 years they will be in a world of hurt. They are forced to go with an old QB with a bad back for at least 2 more years. And yeah, while they technically "save" 5 million in 2017, they are still committing 20 million, which will be at least 10%, of their cap to either a QB who is old and ineffective or not even on their roster.

Sanders' son is a back-up RB at Stanford, 50 carries for 300 yards and 4 TDs this season

Just unlucky that he's playing behind one of, if not the, best running backs in the country atm

Cowboys are going to have to win out from here, and even then 9-7 might not be enough. Certainly not impossible if Romo and Dez are close to 100% though.

And if they sneak in, the NFC is wide open  :-X

While they have given up a passing TD in each game, they have only really been carved up by Brady and maybe Taylor. All the Houston TD's came in junk time. It's on the ground they have been getting absolutely gashed this year. It will be less about Romo and more about getting McFragile up and going.

We lost both Bradford and Ryan Mathews in game. Our crappy replacement kicker missed a kick that any NFL kicker should make which puts us up. We then had the drive to where we should have kicked a FG To put us up but Sanchize throws the pick. Yeah, we should have won, but should doesn't mean you do. Like Miles Austin should not be on an NFL roster, but somehow he is.

If you jump on a team who won their division two season's straight, and have a no.1 pick at QB who is absolutely elite + that defense w/ 2013 DPOY, Luke Kuechly, you can't complain that you picked a team too good :P

If you believed they'd win it, you could have put the $5 on. But you'll see in a couple of months time why it's a good thing you didn't ;)

57% completion percentage, 28th in the league
26th in passing yards/game

With a beast top-3 TE, very good RB and FB, serviceable receivers (in the better half of the league), and a pretty good OL (Turner and Kalil are guns)

They'd be up a slight 6-3 atm if it wasn't for the D. Instead they're up an almost insurmountable 23-3.

I think Newton is great, but yeah I do agree with this as well. There is no way he should even be close to the MVP talks.

If Brady had that defense, he'd be 10-0 too... Oh wait :P

QBs don't only have to pass you know. How is he going interception wise and rushing wise compared to the league? I don't have the numbers but he's likely be top for rushing TDs among Quarterbacks, his interception count would be low, and his 3rd down conversion rates are good.

Despite me being a statistician, numbers don't tell the full story, and you can pick out the ones to suit your argument.

I'm not saying he's the best in the league though I know that's not the case.

They may be my t-second favourite team (with the chiefs and texans) but damn losing at home to the bears and lions within 11 days of each other is pathetic.
Opens up a chance for Minnesota to jump clear of the division. And also means Chicago are somehow only 2 games off Green Bay :o

Did my predictions on the ESPN machine

Out of fear of persecution I won't show my full predictions, but:
NO teams go unbeaten. No teams win 15 games, either. Four teams finish on 14-2 (two from each conference)
Jets, Chiefs, Vikings, and Falcons are the wildcard teams
SD, Tennessee, Dallas, Tampa, Baltimore, and the Niners fail to win another game (admittedly I probably gave us a loss to the rams in the last week to get a better draft position and hopefully take Bosa/Goff)

Okay so the Cardinals to undefeated from here. Panthers lose 2 matches (Probably to Falcons twice or Falcons and Giants). Packers finish above Vikings (No Bears comeback Jukes? :P), Seattle miss out completely.
Patriots and Bengals would be your 14-2 teams in AFC. Broncos still win their Division as you have the Chiefs getting a wildcard spot.

Only thing you haven't really given away is AFC South or NFC East ;)

Had Panthers losing @ Atlanta and @ NYG, perfectly fair predictions seeing as I have those teams finishing 10-6.
Bears and Hawks two of the three 9-7 teams to miss, one game behind 6th seed.
Wouldn't be so sure that the bengals are the other team to finish 14-2 ;)
Have the Colts winning AFC South at 11-5, Houston second with 9-7.
Giants go 10-6 to easily win the NFC East over 7-9 Redskins, 6-10 Philly and 3-13 Dallas.

Have been keeping track of mine since the start of the season, and the playoff picture is obviously very different now to what I'd thought it have been. But it's pretty similar to Jukesy's.

1. Pats (either 15-1 or 16-0, doesn't really matter with the 1 seed pretty much locked up)
2. Bengals (division winner)
3. Broncos (division winner)
4. Colts w/ their pathetic division
5. Chiefs (10-6, wildcard)
6. Pittsburgh (10-6 wildcard)

1. Carolina (15-1, with the one loss being @ the Giants)
2. Arizona (14-2)
3. Green Bay (11-5, win the tie breaker with Minny)
4. Giants (10-6, division winner)
5. Minnesota (11-5, wildcard)
6. Seattle (9-7, wildcard)

Chicago just miss out because of the tie breaker to Seattle.

That leaves the first week playoff matchups as:
Chiefs @ Colts
Steelers @ Bronco's defense
(Would assume both road teams will be favoured in those games)

Seattle @ Green Bay
Vikings @ Giants
:D Awesome games!

Well if you want to bring up pre-season predictions, go have a look back at every port adelaide fan prior to this season ;) can't get them all right.

I said they won't be a contender - and a flukey regular season doesn't change that for me. Expect the Giants to dominate them Week 2 of the playoffs.

So Jay and I have the Giants going 10-6, the same record they had in 2007 when they beat the 16-0 pats (still a possibility). They'd probably still make the playoffs at 9-7, the record they had in 2011. Also, four year cycle 2007-2011-2015.

Giants confirmed Superb Owl champs.

I'm genuinely concerned about this. Would rather play anyone apart from maybe Seattle, than New York in the SB.

He played one of the worst games by a receiver I can remember, apart from his catch and when he drew the holding penalty. Fair few drops and a few fair lazy route running.

Latest report is that he's walking around the locker room without a limp, and without crutches.. Fingers crossed he's okay. Never like to see stars go down, on any team. You could almost hear all the hearts sink of Pats fans in the room when he went down :(

Was an intense game, had about 50/50 between Pats fans and Broncos fans where I was watching it. If anything, I'm now even less worried about Denver than I was before - we'll destroy them in Foxboro when we've got some guys back, some fairer refs, and a guy with half a brain returning punts. Can't say that having the 16-0 thing lifted off the shoulders is a bad thing either..

great news.

If can get Edalmen Gronk and Amendola back before playoffs then should be favorite.

Hope they rest him up, Brady should beat Eagles alone

can afford to drop one more game and still take number 1 guaranteed.

Not too fussed at going to Denver or Cincy can lose every game from here and still clinch 3.

healthy is key.

From what I have seen so far the Packers O-line is f'ed in the a and Rodgers has been pressured. Add in no running game. I thought I changed my pick to Detroit in my pick em' but it turns out I forgot  :-X
