  1. I thought I read multiple times that Unger made the line calls....ok, sorry if I was wrong about that....
  2. Ugh, he was so instrumental in turning the oline around a few years ago....highly intelligent, made all the line calls and was criminally underrated....I think Cameron Tom is the logical choice to replace him...this is really bad news....
  3. I'm more excited than this signing than most...I think Robertson is key on ST and for depth....IMO he is a starting quality LB in the NFL....
  4. Thanks for that info Face, doesn't surprise me at all, I've always liked him. I thought he showed real poise and leadership with the Vikes before his injury...and I think he was just beginning to start to become one of the best young qb's in the NFL....we will see what happens....
  5. I think with Murray running the ball we will be fine. But he has not shown, thus far, to be anywhere near as dynamic a back as MI is. Receiving and pass protection are huge in SP's offense for a RB....I guess SP thinks he can become a more dynamic back for us....we will see....
  6. I vehemently disagree on both points....Face is spot on, JJ wants a yes man, SP would never coach for an owner like that, the only way I could see that happening is if JJ's son somehow pushed him further away from operations, don't think that will happen. I think Eli will retire after his contract expires...he is already late into his career, really has very little value as he has been destroyed the last few years behind the Giants pitiful oline.....
  7. I'm not so quite doom and gloom as all that. I think we have a good core of young players that could lead us into the future with no problem. Retaining SP after DB retires would help, I'm confident SP could find a QB to lead us to good seasons after DB....even if we don't retain him, who is to say we don't get a good coach after SP? Will have to wait and see...one thing is for sure, big changes are coming in the next few years....
  8. I don't think it had anything to do with his role in the offense, I think it had to do with dollars plain and simple. I think Hardee's post above is spot on, and I think MI's agent purposely leaked the 7-8 mill a year rumor and the media ran with it....I swear it is better not reading the bs from them most of the time when it comes to player movement....so the FO very quickly moved on, you can understand why they did, but IMO it was a big mistake. If they would have offered him just a little more, comparable to the Ravens I think he would still be a Saint....hopefully Murray will surprise....
  9. Obviously this is a trade that is going to get a ton of publicity...but as far as improving Cleveland's offense and team? Not sure, it will depend on how well their offensive line performs, they also are going to be without a few draft picks....I really don't think they are the team to beat in that division....yet.....
  10. I am a big Golden Tate fan, he would be perfect in the slot for our offense if the price is right....
  11. All due respect Boris, it is not irony....not by a long shot....it is a combination of things all driven by economics....the all mighty dollar....the NFL by pure numbers has 3-4 times as many players on a team than NBA/MLB teams...and the players unions for the NBA/MLB in general do a much better job of negotiating the contracts with those respective leagues...finally, catastrophic injuries, percentage wise have to be much lower in the NBA/MLB which leads to longer, more healthy careers...to me comparing the NFL with any other major sports league is apples and oranges to an extent....while I don't condone the actions of AB I'm not going to judge any NFL player trying to get as much as they can...their careers tend to be short and can end very quickly....
  12. Not really, it is the market, what the greedy billionaire owners are willing to pay....what has gotten totally out of hand is the cost of everything and anything NFL....and the TV markets willing to pay billions are perhaps the biggest reason why it is all so overpriced....I don't think I would ever spend money on an NFL game ticket ever again....
  13. For the very short term, yes. But you better believe SP will be looking for a qb in the upcoming drafts (2020 and beyond).....
  14. This is the best team the Tigers have had in a long, long time. They are very young but very deep. Whatever Wade is selling the players are believing in. Great effort on both ends but especially defensively. And they are one of the best free throw shooting teams in the nation (even the good LSU teams were notoriously poor at the line). They just need to avoid committing unforced turnovers and offensive/defensive lapses...looking forward to seeing them play in the big dance for a change. Would be nice if they could win the SEC...If they do I'm not sure they would get a 1 seed cause the NCAA selection committee is seriously flawed but they may get a 2 seed...we will see...
  15. Big difference in those 2 situations. The PI call we got depending on the angle, it looked like it could have been PI....it was a bad call no question but you could at least reason that it was a legitimate mistake. The conspired non-call in the NFC championship game there was absolutely no doubt from any angle or any view that it was blatant, in your face PI and helmet to helmet....big difference
