2016 NFL THREAD - Page 39

post #1901 of 1931

Well, 32 teams passed on Cook for a reason, I guess.  And the feeling is if he's there when the Bucs go at 50, they'll pass on him again.  One report said he's great when he's around the team and "scary" when he's not.

Fuckers. Could have gotten a lineman with 1.04 and taken Cook at 2.03 but no, we have to have Fournette and no line to protect him with.

 

Jags being Jags.

Wow, I knew he had some off-field issues, but "scary"?

I also noticed that the Alabama players dropped a fair amount. I recall reading that Saban's approach leaves players banged up before they even make the pros; I wonder if that played a factor.

The Browns get Garrett (yay), Peppers (maybe?) and Njoku (good TEs are always helpful). Prediction for tonight: They'll try and get Davis Webb out of Cal to develop as a QB.

'Bama's getting a bit of a reputation as a system school too.  Which is naturally considering how good they've been for so long.  But I think the 'Bama players dropping was more a result of the unexpected run on offense than anything else.

 

And I'm hearing a lot of talk about Cleveland's draft along the lines of, "Okay, great, but who's throwing the ball?"  Kiper was on Mike & Mike saying trading back for all these extra picks is fine and good, but eventually you have to go get your QB.

Watson would have been nice, but are we 100% sure there were any first-round quality QBs in this draft? Trading up for Trubisky certainly felt like a reach.

Mixon... what an utterly Cincinnati pick. Jesus...

I have to say, I like the value of Kizer.

Bullshit. Read the story in Sports Illustrated about the manufactured stories that a spurned "runner" has been spreading about Cook because he didn't make the guy his agent. Cook goes to the Vikings and the first words out of Mayock's mouth are "Character issues" and then Mixon goes and he says, "Well, whether you like him or not, he's now a Cincinnati Bengal." And the dude from Utah was expelled from 5 schools but didn't have "a questionable background".

I can defend all of Cleveland's picks so far. Feels weird.

I guess the Bucs like the RBs they have and figure opening up the passing game will open up the run game.

Sources are saying the Cardinals are in talks with Blaine Gabbert.

 

Nope. I can't do this. Bring on Trump's nuclear war.

I would not wish that on my worst enemy.
post #1916 of 1931

If they sign him, I bet he doesn't get past camp.

 

But still... are we about to fall that goddamned far? We were actually about to put our eggs into one basket with Watson before the Texans sniped him? Is my team about to fall into a Kolb/Skelton/Lindley/Hall pit again? There's no reason to even consider Gabbert, unless we're about to be completely fucked and have no plan.

Related: It's pretty clear that Colin Kaepernick is never playing again.

Maybe he should go to the broadcast booth like Cutler. Yep Jay has quit football and is on the B team at Fox. Which means he should get at least a Bear game or 2. Should be interesting if he can be critical of former teammates
With Cutty out it leaves Kaepernick as the best QB option out there. And by best I mean you'll be drafting in the top 5 for sure.

I don't mind Kaepernick as much as other people do. I think he got dropped into the league with a good coach and a brief window where the league wasn't prepared for his skill set, and it's not his fault that his career was flash-in-the-pan.

 

That said, I don't want to listen to him talk every Sunday. That's not a voice for TV.

Cutler as color commentary may be a comedy goldmine.

"Some dude has the ball... Who cares. Kristen's got me eating nothing but powdered kale."
post #1922 of 1931
The running joke on sports talk radio that I've heard from a few people: does anyone even know what Jay Cutler sounds like? I don't think I've ever heard him speak.

Wouldn't it be funny if he becomes some brilliant color analyst and everyone totally forgets about Tony Romo.

He sounds like a nasally douche... which is exactly what he is.

post #1924 of 1931

Cutler always looks like he either just woke up, or smoked a joint, or just woke up and smoked a joint. I can't wait for his first broadcast.

You guys gotta read CBS Sports' front office power rankings. It's the funniest fucking thing you'll read all week.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

 

You're not a real Dolphins fan unless your first reaction to Jay Cutler signing was to grab a bottle of whiskey and say, "J:SJKN:TJNA:LTJJ:LSGL:K MLIJL:IHGLKSNGLAHITGL"SMGB"LKMKSLKBM"

 

This should be fun!

post #1929 of 1931

Co-worker of mine is a Dolphins fan. He walked into the office yesterday, and when we made eye contact he just sadly shook his head.

 

We didn't have to speak a word and I knew exactly what he meant.

Fuck. This was my 11,000th post and I wasted it on not only Jay Cutler, but a co-worker...

It's going to be a long Bears season. On the plus side I'll have my Sundays free
