post #51 of 2984

Throwing out large sums of money to sign aging and/or recently injured high-profile veterans? Is Denver stealing the DC playbook?

 

Speaking of which, although I don't like seeing all the safeties and corners go off the market when we need all of them, I'm surprised at the lack of drunken spending out of Washington so far. Remains to be seen whether this is sober planning or the utter lack of a plan.

 

ETA: Jinx, buy me a beer, Anya.

Is Revis even a top DB anymore?  Hearing on the tv he was heavy last year and has lost a step.

 

No way I'd give 10 million a year for Allen.  Definatley not 3 years unless the 3rd won't count much, if at all, against the cap.  But I bet someone will

post #53 of 2984

Vikings just paid 31.5 Million to sign Linval Joseph from the Giants.  Money money moneymoneymoney

post #54 of 2984
Bucs add McCown 2 year/10 mil and poss 15. The Bears/Bucs game should be interesting.

Word is Bears tried to get him in 2009/10 but just didn't happen.

I'm glad for him. That being said he's going to a new offense that isn't Trestman. Lovie blows and he doesn't have a guy like Jeffries or Marshall to make ungodly catches. And with that salary he isn't going to sit on the bench.

Coming off knee surgery though.

 

That McCown deal is awfully friendly.  Not so much money that it precludes the Bucs from drafting a QB, and doesn't keep us beholden to him if he busts.  It's a perfect kick the tires kind of deal; if he clicks, we extend him while we groom a rookie.  If he tanks, we either suck up the second year or cut him with a minimal cap hit.  Licht is really nailing this off-season so far.

post #56 of 2984

Speaking of the Bears, it looks like Josh McGown landed himself a gig at Tampa Bay. Glad to see it -- I've liked him since his days with the Cardinals, and his post-game interview after beating the Packers last season was one of the most heart-warming moments of last year. With the lack of confidence in Glennon, McGown may find himself as the starter.

post #57 of 2984
so Steve Smith isn't coming back to Carolina. That was Cam's only legit weapon since he's been QB so what the hell are they going to do? Their D will only take them so far.

Curious about Decker and where he will end up. He wants #1 WR money even though he's a #2. He'd be great in Indy and the Colts should try and get him.
post #58 of 2984

Decker's not a #1 wide receiver; he hit the franchise record for touchdowns in a game, and I think he's trying to ride that into a big pay day.

 

He'll probably land in New York with decent money and the #1 spot with the Jets.

post #59 of 2984

Revis had a better-than-assumed season last year, considering he was coming off ACL surgery and Tampa refused to play him at his natural position until the season was already lost.

 

The Browns cut Brandon Weeden. 30 years old, and he didn't finish his rookie contract. Let's look back on this, a gif from right before his very first game:

 

post #60 of 2984

Tis really a thing of beauty.

post #61 of 2984

Washington makes its big off-season splash, instantly making it cooler than ALL your teams, by signing BRUCE EFFIN CAMPBELL, baby! Fuck yea-- I'm sorry? It's not that Bruce Campbell? Oh. Well, fine, we need OL depth, too.

Also, now that Richardson and Weeden are gone, that's two 2012 first round picks that barely lasted more than one season. Hey Mike Holmgren: YOU SUCK.

Don't worry Mangy, the Browns have a back up plan for a free agent quarterback.

Saffold, the Raiders' big free agent signing, failed his physical. Oh man.

 

EDIT: And now the Rams are re-signing him! Keep in mind, Oakland gave away their rising young left tackle. Brutal.

Now safety or DT

If you're expecting a major pass rusher you're in for disappointment. Houston is a good player though. Excellent against the run, with mediocre pass rush skills, and a high motor. He has no business playing as a right end, though. He's a better fit on the strong side, where he'll stop the run and may be able to get you 6-8 sacks a year. Another thing that will probably help him out, going to Chicago, is that the Raiders were so thin on the line last year Houston had to play about 90% of the snaps, I don't think this will be the case any more. If he plays less it'll probably keep him fresher through the season and in games. He wore down in the latter half of the season.

It's only for $1.75 mil. Big deal. The reported $4 mil is a farce. Most of it is unlikely to be earned incentives. And lets say he does meet them, well, it means he earned the additional cash.

Reggie McKenzie is so fucking incompetent. There's mixed reports on what position Saffold was gonna play for the Raiders. Some said LG, others said LT. He's better suited for guard but who pays guards $8 mil a year? Only elite guys. Is Saffold elite? Hell no! He's always injured and then they go out and give him more money than Monroe, Albert and their own player Veldheer, who are all considered better players. Oh and did I mention he's always hurt? Reggie seems to be in over his head. A couple decent players are in Oakland right now, and if they leave the building without a contract I'm gonna fucking lose it. Certain tweets, from people mentioning sources inside he building, are saying the life has been sucked out of them. I could care less about losing Saffold but this whole ordeal screwed us outta signing someone like Monroe. All that's left out there now is Anthony Collins, and reports have been linking him to Tampa for days. Alex Mack is another option but the coaches seem hell bent on keeping Wiz at C, a guy who botches at least one snap every game. Good grief! 

post #70 of 2984

Revis to NE and Decker to the Jets.

 

Revis more than makes up for the Talib loss, and Decker will fail in NY:  Reasons 1-1,000,000: Going from Peyton Manning to Geno Smith. OUCH!!!

According to a Raiders source Mark Davis pulled plug on Saffold deal. Could have had surgery and been ready for training camp. Mark said no

Ah, Mark Davis. Has any sports owner compared to Tommy Boy ever worked out?

 

Reggie McKenzie was the only person interviewed for the GM position. In hindsight, this seems like a mistake.

Not gonna miss playing him twice a year, I can tell you that.

Darren Sharper charged with two additional rapes in Arizona. Dear Lord. There's even an infographic up keeping track of all of them. Enjoy prison, Darren.

Man, can these psychotic NFL players stay the fuck out of my state? We're already at our crazy quota.

post #76 of 2984

Speaking of crazy people, the Panthers released Steve Smith today, leading to this quote:

 

Quote:
 “@billvoth: Steve Smith on possibly playing vs #Panthers: “Put your goggles on cause there’s going to be blood and guts everywhere.””

I wouldn't be surprised if he begged the Saints to sign him for free.

 

EDIT: The Ravens are interested in Smith, and they play the Panthers next year. I want to draft him in my next fantasy league, if only for that week.

The Bucs signed OT Anthony Collins, then a few hours later, released OT Donald Penn.  So they basically get younger and cheaper at the position, and free up about $7.5 million more in cap space.  They've got Captain Munnerlin, Walter Thurmond and Emmanuel Sanders coming in for visits today.  I've never seen a turnover like this before.

Cardinals just picked up Ted Ginn. That gives us the speedy WR3 we needed, and someone for kick returns. We're on the road to picking up all of our needs on FA, and moving on to a fun draft. I love our front office.

 

And... fuck, I feel bad for Carolina fans, in the process. You guys no longer have a single receiver on your roster who caught a ball last season.

post #81 of 2984

Kick returner yes.  WR-no.

 

I don't know if I'd be as excited as you to be in a division with Seattle and San Francisco,  Not to mention St Louis has a decent defense.

With the way our team is shaping up, and how well we did last season, I couldn't be more excited. We proved last season that the Seahawks aren't invincible.

Marvin Lewis gets a one-year extension in Cincy, good through the 2015 season.  If he wasn't on the clock before, he's on it now.

post #84 of 2984

 

Well, he really should be. With their talent level, shouldn't the Bengals have at least won a playoff game accidentally by now?

You got lucky in that one. 4 picks by Palmer. Seattle just played a shit game offensively. I can maybe see the 49ers slip a bit this year but you still have Palmer as QB.

Peanut Tillman resigns with the Bears with a 1 year deal. Stll played at great level until he got hurt. Hope he can play the season.

That's very true.  NFC West is going to be very competitive next year.  Even the Rams are improving under Jeff Fisher.  There's not a weak team in the division.

 

So the Dolphins have signed Cortland Finnegan to a 2 year deal.  What is it with this organization?  Didnt they learn their lesson with Incognito?  Do they like having raging assholes around?  In other news that makes me less angry, the thought of a Browner/Revis combo at cornerback for New England should make everyone in the AFC East very nervous.

Hey. Once Arians' offense started clicking, Palmer looked pretty damned good, and his chemistry with our receiver package shot up like a rocket. The second half of the season, we looked like a completely different team from the one playing in the first half. We earned that win, and we did it in the impenetrable C-Link, with all of Seattle's fans screaming like two year olds.

 

We have an excellent coaching staff made of smart guys who know how to utilize the strengths of our players. Which, again, is why I see Dansby failing in Cleveland. I think we're going to surprise the hell out of the league this season.

If Peppers was any good the Bears would have beat the Packers at the end of the season. They couldn't get to Rodgers.

Atleast they didn't get Tillman.

Are they happy about this in cheesehead land?

"Peppers to the Packers" is such a fun phrase to say.

It's a HoF player on the line. I haven't heard much opinion yet but I'll hear plenty tomorrow.

I don't think it's a slam dunk but Thompson has a respectable track record when it comes to pulling the trigger on a major FA. peppers is a 4-3 guy and GB plays a 3-4 but I'd think Thompson and McCarthy would do their due diligence and make sure both Capers and Peppers think it can work before dropping the dime on him.
post #94 of 2984
...and so long as one of the handful of games Peppers shows up for is vs SF (or Seattle) in the playoffs, I can live with it.

If I owned a recent copy of Madden, I would have the OCD urge to re-assign every FA to their new team. 

post #96 of 2984

Last year, people built teams from all the players with injured ACLs.

 

They were apparently pretty damn good teams.
