  1. 2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    Pretty big if. Old Regime draft picks tend to get drummed out by the New Regime pretty quickly because they aren't their guys.
  2. 2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    If they're about to get fired (I would have fired Bruce months ago), then I don't really want them emptying out the cupboard for the next regime. Also not sure I want them making a QB selection if they're a year away from getting fired. Having a lame duck front office and coaching staff is a recipe for disaster.

    Dan should forbid them from trading 2019 picks.

    This is a weird pass rusher class. Landry is the best pure pass rusher but he's coming off a year where he mailed it in and then got hurt. Chubb is the consensus top guy and a lock to go top five but people have seemingly ignored the fact that his first step is just OK and he's stiff and top heavy and can't bend the edge. He's a Johnny try-hard power rusher. A Ryan Kerrigan. I get that he's a safe pick in an uncertain class but guys like him don't live up to their draft slot when they go top five. See Chris Long. Arden Key has the best combination of length, get off burst, and agility but he sucks. Not a football player. Davenport has a mediocre first step and change of direction skills and his instincts look ordinary. Meh production against inferior competition who couldn't match up with him physically. Da'Shawn Hand is a JAG who never lived up to the recruiting hype. Feels like if we don't get Landry then we should sit this pass rusher class out. I like that Cruzan aged rum, and I like the price even better. I like Mt Gay rum too.

    That's good company. One of the things that jumps off the tape about him to me is the way he hits. He closes hard but he still keeps his head up and uses his hands and he forces a ton of fumbles as a result. He is an instinctive playmaker at the position. You're right that he's good value at 13. If it weren't a year with five first round QBs, he'd probably go high. But I'm not married to him (or anyone really) because I don't love some of his flaws. I don't love his height and I don't love his run defense. I don't think he gives good effort on run downs and he is not aggressive with his hands. He lets guys latch on to him and then quits. There's some softness there. If you're getting Vic Beasley at 13, then you run to the podium. But I got to watch a lot of Vic Beasley, including in person, and that guy was a lot stronger than people gave him credit for being. If he's Bruce Irvin instead, then the value is still probably OK but it isn't as nice.

    I'd be fine with Landry at 13. A little worried about that height but he's an instinctive and violent finisher and I like that.

    The only intolerable scenarios for me are passing on Mayfield or Rosen if they fall to 13, and drafting Guice at 13. I can rationalize anything else. Obviously I'd be happy with Minkah, Nelson, Roquan, Edmunds. I'd also be happy with Payne, Ridley, or Ward. I'm a little iffy on Derwin James myself, but the upside with the pick is high. I can live with Vea, although I'd have some reservations about his toughness. That covers pretty much everyone, barring a trade down.

    I don't know about this kid. Tweeting racist stuff like that doesn't just come out of nowhere.

    Brooks is here to stay. There is no way in the world Ted will eat his salary AND pay another top level coach like Budenholzer. Ted is... thrifty. One of the league's thriftiest owners. Pretty sure it wasn't just loyalty explaining why he held Randy Whittman and Ernie Grunfeld so long.
  10. ***2017-18 NBA Season Thread***

    Budenholzer got fired. Damn. Wishing we hadn't given Scotty Brooks all that money and all those years right about now. Who does Atlanta think they're going to get that's better?
  11. 2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    I hope it's not true actually, because it's really uncomfortable if it is. Like a mild cry for help. My take on Guice is that he was developmentally stunted by the environment and nature of his upbringing. I suspect that he has the emotional maturity level of a younger person. In normal circumstances, that would be fine. But the NFL is hard on everyone, and I don't think a kid will handle the transition well. The NFL waits on nobody. It grinds up everyone, especially the people who aren't ready for it.

    He can get pressure when he gets single-blocked more often than he gets credit for. He can win with initial quickness and heavy hands against a lone guard or center but he is not a dominant rusher with a toolbox full of counters who can win after the initial move gets stymied or the double cuts him off. There aren't many rushers like that coming from the 1 technique period. But I do think there is some untapped potential as a stunter. That wasn't much of a part of Bama's scheme, they were much more about that linebacker and safety blitz. Made sense given their roster make up this year. Raekwon Davis is a traditional beast of a pass rushing DL, but he was the only one really. Anfernee Jennings battled injuries and wasn't that productive. However, the closing speed on their interior second level defenders (Evans, Harrison, Fitzpatrick) was so damn good they were able to make up for the lack of consistent edge pressure with blitzing. I wonder if that Alabama defense wasn't a roadmap for how to play dominant pass defense without a dominant edge rush? They had non-traditional but highly effective players at DT, ILB, and S---spots that aren't usually focal points in the pass rush. Does the NFL undervalue/under-utilize blitzing ability at the safety and ILB spot? If so, will Rashaan Evans and Minkah Fitzpatrick be able to use this special part of their game at the next level?

    So um, apparently Guice made up all that **** about NFL teams asking him if he was gay and if his mom was a prostitute. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/23317926/nfl-investigation-says-no-evidence-lsu-tigers-rb-derrius-guice-was-asked-invasive-questions-combine Anyone want to walk back their assertions that Guice having maturity issues is total BS?

    Almost as hilarious as thinking that trading him for a guy Miami would pay to get rid of is a good idea.
