Johnson’s a stud when he’s healthy but he was bad last season...even when he was healthy he didn’t look right. Big risk on Houston’s part because of the contract.

Title: Re: Around The NFL - 2020
Post by: Diomedes on March 16, 2020, 02:41:25 PM
That Ravens TE trade is puzzling.  I guess a 2nd was too hard to turn down.  Hurst and Andrews were a pretty good combo for Jackson, and Hurst is not expensive.
Title: Re: Around The NFL - 2020
Post by: QB Eagles on March 16, 2020, 02:50:39 PM
You never know what DeCosta plans to turn that 2nd into. We could be only seeing part of the move.
Title: Re: Around The NFL - 2020
Post by: Diomedes on March 16, 2020, 02:53:56 PM
I guess the deal is, they rarely put both Hurst and Andrews on the field at the same time.  Boyle is a very good blocker, which they need every snap, so the value of having two good pass catching TEs is limited.  They bumped into Atlanta, who just lost Hooper, and got a 2 out of it.  Probably smart move.
Title: Re: Around The NFL - 2020
Post by: Munson on March 16, 2020, 02:57:58 PM
Yeah Andrews looks like the real deal, prob just figured they could get an extra high draft pick for a dude that splits time on their team
Title: Re: Around The NFL - 2020
Post by: AO1 on March 16, 2020, 03:18:35 PM
Andrews is a stud, if he stays healthy he’s a top 5 TE. Boyle’s a complete TE, Hurst’s talent was being wasted.

Title: Re: Around The NFL - 2020
Post by: Eagaholic on March 18, 2020, 10:55:44 PM
I' be interested to know Howie's thinking on Slay. I'm sure he wants to get either a solid CB or WR nailed down before the draft and he finally has decent cap space and draft capitol for a trade. But he says he also wants to go younger and Slay is 29. On he other hand Slay has only missed 5 games in the last 6 years and when vets want a trade from their current team they'll often take a little less to get out. Seems the scales are kind of even.

Sounds to me like Wentz needs coddling, or the team thinks he does, and they want to stock the WR corps with kids who learn to play with Wentz...

I kinda buy it, kinda don't.

This bit at PFT about Romo's negotiation with Jones and Parcells is instructive:

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/03/27/tony-romo-wont-discuss-cbs-contract-recalls-playing-hardball-with-jones-and-parcells/

Quote
Romo had been with the Cowboys for three years but had never thrown a pass in a regular-season game. The Cowboys thought they could get Romo to sign an extension for a $500,000 signing bonus, but Romo demanded a $2 million signing bonus and got it.

“Jerry Jones and Bill Parcells sit me down right before a preseason game,” Romo recalled. “They’re like, ‘We need you to sign this deal for $500,000.’ I’m making the league minimum, $250,000 or so. I told them, ‘The only way you’ll play me is if you have something invested in me that makes you want to see if I’m worth it.’ I told them $2 million. ‘For that, I feel like you’ll want to put me in a game to see.’ Believe me, I didn’t want to do it. It was as nerve-wracking a situation as I’ve ever been in.”

Romo said that Jones and Parcells agreed, and he got his $2 million signing bonus.

Balls.  Always bet on yourself.

some nuggets i picked up from pouring through the schedule:

-dallas leads the way with 11 national games. kinda low for them. no has 9. tb/sf 8.5. kc 8. gb 7.5. phi/ne 7. bal/sea 6.
-the rams maxed out on PT games (5) but have no other national window games. hmmmm.
-the chargers are tenants in their stadium, dont open up in a full national window and only have 1 (possible) pt game. yikes. the rams and raiders both get early primetime games to open up their fancy stadiums. the chargers didnt even get the late week 1 mnf.
-vegas has 4 locked in home primetime games and 1 other possibility. 0 road. never seen this before. league really doing them favors.
-nov 15 the masters will air a late morning/early afternoon final round. all 100 nfl games on fox. then i assume 100% of the country has one of 3 games at 405 on cbs, while fox still airs its normal 425 game. good day to stay on the couch.
-the wash team has 0 primetime games and 1 national game -- tg against dallas. this has been proven to be the highest rated window of the year regardless of opponent. nfl playing to that.
-the bills have more primetime games than the giants
-detroit also has 0 schedule primetime games. why are they still leading off tg?
-4/5 of pitt's national window games are on the road. sad yinzer.
-all 3 viking primetime games are on the road. sad melvin.
-5/6 seattle national window games are at home. perfect they get this when they cant even benefit from it.
-lot of pressure on the eagles/dallas week 16 game to be good. it was put there for a reason.

tess just didnt have the chops to carry a big time nfl broadcast. hes good on college and boxing. very hokey and carnival barkery which plays well to those, but the nfl is all confidence and gravitas. the game sells itself. he was trying to sell you on the game.

booger is actually very good in studio. might never be ready for the booth but he certainly wasnt ready for the big leagues. espn just really put everyone in a bad spot with this thing.

feels like they have 2 options
1) fowler-herbie IF there is no college. which is likely. buys them a year to figure things out.
2) levy-riddick-orlovsky. this i think would be a good booth but it might only be for a year since there will be a lot of movement with announcer contracts in 2021.

It didn't take long for the first player to sign on for the official Opt Out deal rather than get Covid for the team:  Canadian medical doctor / 6th round pick / starting RG from the Chiefs, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif decided $150k stipend and contract tolling to 2021 > 2.3M and Covid.  His statement:

Quote
En raison de la crise sanitaire mondiale que nous vivons actuellement, la NFL et l'Association des joueurs de la NFL se sont entendus sur plusieurs protocoles d'envergure liés à la santé et à la sécurité afin de protéger les joueurs. Je suis convaincu que l'équipe médicale des Chiefs a mis en place un plan solide afin de minimiser les risques de santé associés à la COVID-19. Cependant, des risques persistent et, en tant que futur professionnel de la santé, je ne peux pas me permettre de devenir un vecteur potentiel de transmission dans nos communautés.

Cette décision a été l'une des plus difficiles que j'ai dû prendre dans ma vie. Ceci dit, considérant les risques de santé, je dois faire ce qui est le mieux pour moi. C'est pour cela que j'ai décidé de prendre l'option de ne pas jouer cette saison selon la clause « Opt Out » négociée par l'Association des joueurs et la ligue, qui est disponible pour l'ensemble des joueurs de la NFL

Mon expérience sur les premières lignes au printemps dernier m'a apporté une perspective différente face à la pandémie et le stress qu'elle met sur le système de santé. Si je suis amené à me retrouver dans une situation comportant des risques significatifs, je le ferai en traitant des patients.

Je veux prendre le temps de remercier l'organisation des Chiefs de Kansas City pour leur soutien et leur compréhension.

Soyez prudents,
Laurent Duvernay Tardif


he also posted it in English, pour les Americains,


Quote
Given the worldwide sanitary crisis we are currently experiencing, the NFL and the NFLPA have agreed to significant health and safety protocols to protect the players. There is no doubt in my mind the Chiefs' medical staff have put together a strong plan to minimize the health risks associated with COVID-19 but some risks will remain.

This is one of the most difficult decisions I have had to make in my life but I must follow my convictions and do what I believe is right for me personally. That is why I have decided to take the Opt Out Option negotiated by the League and the NFLPA and officially opt out of the 2020 NFL season.

Being at the frontline during this offseason has given me a different perspective on this pandemic and the stress it puts on individuals and our healthcare system. I cannot allow myself to potentially transmit the virus in our communities simply to play the sport that I love. If I am to take risks, I will do it caring for patients.

I want to thank everyone in the Kansas City Chiefs organization for their support and understanding.

Stay safe,

Laurent Duvernay Tardif

I'd be shocked if Kamara moved. Loomis always seems to pull cap room out of his ass for their marquee players. Second tier guys like Sproles and Jenkins are available, but Kamara (although at a less valuable position than guys like Lattimore) is a cut above.

Plus it's somewhat of an open secret that this season is it for Brees, and I'm sure they'd like to keep their other offensive stars in place for the new QB (as well as for their last playoff run in the Brees window).

Can't say that because we haven't seen Mills play there yet.

I’ve seen plenty of Mills he has no range. He excels in short space and red zone coverage. Not sure why they didn’t just leave him at cb and put Maddox at safety. I get the safety position he’s playing is essentially a 3rd cb but he’ll have to occasionally fill in in the box and I just don’t see him as a physical presence. In short Malcolm should have been re-signed. I really hope where da farg is Wallace can fill in but that’s a stretch for a rookie.

Post by: PhillyPhreak54 on September 04, 2020, 05:00:40 PM
Agreed on Wallace. He's gotten hype because of the BDawk/Clemson comparison so I hope he turns into a player.

I like Mills...he never shied away from contact as a corner really. I think he will be alright. But yeah Jenkins should have been retained.

Titans 2020 first round pick Isaiah Wilson seems like a winner.

He was arrested for DUI last night after doing donuts and smashing into a wall. This offseason he has already done two separate stints on the covid-19 reserve list, got caught jumping off a balcony to get away from the cops breaking up an illegal party, and is way down the depth chart due to being out of shape and resistant to coaching. Our old buddy Dennis Kelly is miles ahead of him.

Good for Kraft, honestly. The state prosecutors played it up like an international sex trafficking ring and called it "modern day slavery", when really it was just some old Chinese ladies doing consensual rub n tugs. Florida used Kraft to gin up publicity for their case, with the expectation that he would quietly accept their plea deal offer and pay $10,000 to make it go away.

Instead Kraft called their bluff, refused the deal, and pointed out that the video surveillance was unconstitutional. The case that was designed to be good publicity for state prosecutor's political career started to become a real liability. So of course charges were dropped, not just against Kraft, but against all the defendants. They were lucky that a billionaire was involved and refused to back down, when he very easily could have (and would have saved him a bunch of money).

Can't help but notice that these sports outbreaks seem to be limited to within teams. Although players on different teams come in close contact during games, the wide open air of arenas/stadiums appears to be a *much* different transmission vector than team offices, locker rooms, buses, pregame meals, etc. It's not so much that the games are dangerous, it's all the stuff around them.

He did run straight off again, though Covid rules about fraternizing after the game, and his apparent, final-drive confusion about how many downs you get to gain 10 yards in the NFL, may have had more to do with it than his poor sportsmanship.

This was also the first time Brady lost to the Bears.

If Dalton is terrible in every game they still have a better offense than anyone else in the division. And he probably won't be terrible in every game. Especially against the Birds.

My buddy was here tonight when we saw the news

NE
BUF
IND
OAK
LAC

TB
NO
CHI
SF
LAR
SEA
ARZ

Most of those are based on need. Except OAK. That’s bc Mayock and Gruden like vets/popular names. Josh Jacobs shouldn’t have his carries messed up by him.

If Howie is truly becoming like McLane says he is then maybe he signs him but cutting Miles’ carries would be dumb too.

Rams, Colts and Pats are my top three to sign him.

Dez is going through the weirdest decline I can recall.

It's not that weird. He was never able to get much separation even when he was good. He was just a ball vacuum with great hands, an insane ability to contort his body, the size to win jumpballs, and an elite ability to sell pushing off as a legitimate football move. Then he got some severe leg injuries and his ability to separate dropped to near zero. Then he tore his Achilles which is often a career ender at the skill positions and limits his ability to outmaneuver corners at the moment the ball arrives.

The weird thing would be if he came back to the NFL and achieved above-average production. He looked cooked in 2017.
