  1. I personally think he will be like Jason Witten playing like a shell of his old self. I didn't see the explosion you are used to from him.
  2. This! I can't with a good conscious pull for any TB team and geographically they are the closest team to where I live. I just don't know how else to pick a team because I don't want to feel like a fair-weather fan and pick the best team either lol.
  3. I honestly prefer the overtime rules, and some of the other ones like kickoff are interesting.
  4. I agree, I honestly think like in Brees interview at the Super Bowl he will come back and yield to TH for 20-30 snaps a game. Much like an RB committee. I don't think we win a super bowl that way, but we could make the playoffs and groom TH.
  5. Yeah, that was the concern I had about him coming out of college. Again in a 3-4 I think he could be good or as a situational rusher which is why I think they tried him at LB a few times.
  6. I have to admit I am a little surprised by this. He was their best pass rusher, but that does not say a whole lot. I think he will get paid by someone. He has not lived up to his draft status or duplicated his 16 sack season, but still had 8 sacks last year. Nothing to sneeze at. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/02/03/falcons-announce-they-will-not-pursue-negotiations-with-vic-beasley/ Falcons announce they will not pursue negotiations with Vic Beasley Posted by Charean Williams on February 3, 2020, 1:37 PM EST The Falcons announced Monday they will not pursue negotiations with Vic Beasley. Beasley is set to become an unrestricted free agent when the new league year begins March 18. “As we continue to craft our 2020 roster, we’d like to thank Vic for five years of effort on behalf of our organization,” Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff said in a press release. Beasley completed his fifth season with the organization in 2019, playing in 78 games with 60 starts. The team drafted him eighth overall in 2015. He totaled 156 tackles, 36 tackles for loss, 37.5 sacks and 46 quarterback hits in his five seasons with the Falcons. He also added 12 passes defensed and 11 forced fumbles. He finished 2019 with 42 tackles, 12 quarterback hits, eight tackles for loss and eight sacks.
  7. To me he was always more a tweener built for a 3-4 than a 4-3. But to play a 4-3 End and put up 8 sacks is nothing to sneeze at. I don't think he would be a good fit for us, because we would have to use him as a situational rusher. I feel he is going to want top-end money. He wins on get off and speed.
  8. I will say I think the double extension is what got Kittle. The sad part is the ball was placed so well by Garrappolo I didn't think he needed to push off. He still needed to extend to catch it so I don't think the defender had a shot at the ball.
  9. He definitely was a beast I will say that. I am still surprised he finally walked away I felt he should have a while ago.
  10. IDK dude, this one has the money supposedly already in hand to last more than one season. Whether it is popular I don't know. I liked the AFF. I am going to watch at least a little bit of it.
  11. Once again they abandon the run. They ran on first down and did play action on second down almost every series in the 4th quarter. After gaining 4-5 yards a rush on the run play. Kyle dude if it's working stay with it.
  12. He deserved it he really earned it. He proved he was worth the contract, and if he stays healthy I think the contract will be a bargain.
  13. Wow if the $1 million payouts is true from the other owners I would think a lot less of Benson. I know he toyed with it, but for him to take a bribe to stay would not look good on him or the organization. It's sad it came out now that he is gone and can't fight this acquisition true or not.
  14. He was ordered to have a psych eval done. They took his passport and put a GPS monitoring device on him. I think they feel he is a flight risk and a risk to himself or others. After everything else that has happened, I agree.
  15. I am pulling for the Chiefs, just not sure if I am going to watch the game. I barely watched any games after the Saints were eliminated. Maybe a total of 15 minutes of gameplay in all the playoff games up until now this postseason.
  16. He has currently locked himself in the house and refuses to answer the door.
  17. Altuve in a video in the article is telling his teammates not to take his jersey off and his holding it tight. https://www.cleveland.com/tribe/2020/01/mike-clevinger-has-strong-words-for-houston-astros-players-as-internet-loses-its-mind-over-latest-cheating-allegations.html Mike Clevinger has strong words for Houston Astros players as Internet loses its mind over latest cheating allegations Updated Jan 16, 2020;Posted Jan 16, 2020
  18. From what I heard they videoed the competition from cameras out in the center field the signals of the catcher, and had the video being shown on tv the dugout could see. It was reported that the team was coughing or hitting trash cans so the batter would know the pitch. Lastest yesterday is that the players wore devices on their body and would get a vibration from the device on when to swing and supposedly there is photographic evidence of said device on a player after a home run. Personally I think the Title should be removed and all players involved who had devices should be banned. At this point, it is getting worse almost daily.
  19. Dang dude that is a tear-jerker, and I didn't know of her or anyone at LSU. I am even more glad they won it all now.
  20. I am curious to see how the offense does with so many players leaving, the play-caller should till be the same. As I understand it Joe did not call the plays.
  21. Slidell Realistically if we move on from Brees I don't think we make the Super Bowl next season, or honestly even the next two. Truthfully you are right there is no reason we cannot kick the can down the road further for however long Brees wants to play, but honestly, the day he retires we will probably have to go into full rebuild because of the cap hit. It will be over 20 million in dead cap space. You are also right about being able to keep players we want and draft other players this year, but outside of 2006, we have not had as good as drafts as we have had since Ireland got here. The concern I have is the players we have selected the Lattimore, Kamar, MT, Ram are all top of their positions in the league in the next 2 years they will want to be paid that way. If we do not they will get it elsewhere that is what I was referencing regarding keeping guys. Realistically I feel we will let Kamara go in the next two years unless he gets back to his rookie form which is hard without a better number 2 back. We will need to keep Ram as either RT or LT, we will need Lattimore, and then we will need to decide on Marcus Williams, Anzalone, Von Bell (this offseason) while having already paid MT, and Probably let Peat leave this offseason. Realistically again 100% expect Brees back if he wants to play and I think he is about 90-95% coming back now. If he comes back for 2 more years this core group of players will probably look very different. I really think we shoudl start an offseason thread specifically to discuss who we may lose in free agency this year and next. I believe Warford is in the last year of his deal.
  22. I hate he goes to Carolina. Hopefully, they don't give him a real QB to work with. I think Cam is done there and they will have to rebuild the whole team hopefully at that point he has moved onto somewhere else as a head coach. Hopefully out of the NFC south and not somewhere like Tampa or ATL.
  23. I hate to see i=hsi career end this early, but I feel he should have done this a couple of years ago when he was having multiple concussions. I think He, Gronk, and Luck walking away show players are getting smart about their health. I am happy he can walk away while walking and functioning at a high level.
  24. Boris, I agree, but there are teams that will steamroll teams in the regular season and not be able to do it in the playoffs. I feel we are one of those teams with Brees at QB. The concern that I have that has been said here before is if we keep Brees which I know will happen we will let others walk and not fill certain hols in free agency because we won't have the funds. Also arm strength, yes you can win games without throwing a deep ball and check down all day long. But when you have to focus your team on the run game and defense your QB has to take little money so the rest can go into that. If you can't throw the deep ball safeties cheat up and stop everything underneath and the run game. It will be our undoing. I'm sorry but we have all seen it before. History repeats itself. When the Seahawks won their first super bowl they played a Denver team lead by Manning who could not throw it deep. Go back and watch the film. The only reason Manning won the last one was because of defense and having two great YAC WR's. They had Demarius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders in their prime. We have one great WR that's it. We will not go far with Brees in the playoffs. I'm sorry I love him and hope he retires a Saint, I am just looking at it realistically. I really hope to be eating crow, but these are legitimate concerns. We all know this to be true, think about it. History is not on his side or Tom Brady's side. I am just being honest. You don't gain arm strength in your 40's. It doesn't happen even the guy with arguably the best arm in NFL history Favre played his last full season at 40. He didn't finish the season he played at 41 in.
  25. I agree, he was a much better blocker than expected when we signed him. He will be missed, but I feel we can overcome this one. The other players leaving in free agency are what scares me. I truly expect week 1 of this past year and next year to have a few different starters on both sides of the ball.
