    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    That's the million dollar question. This QB crop did seem weak to me when I first looked at it, but sometimes guys emerge over the course of the season. That's what happened with Trubisky and Mahomes. I'm hoping the same will happen this year, because we didn't come into this season with really clean and accomplished stud prospects like we did in previous years with Darnold and Mayfield and Watson, etc. I'm going to be looking at the QBs from Duke and NC State to start. Finley has a long history as a starter and I'll be looking at his cut ups to see if he's made the leap to good prospect this year. That's kind of how it played out for Jared Goff. I'm not going to write off Lock or Herbert yet either. I wouldn't be opposed to ending up with a top OT prospect, because they're worth their weight in gold too. But I would go into the offseason prioritizing QB. The rough calculus of the QB position is that a pretty good QB prospect is still way more valuable to a team than a great prospect at another position. It's the one position you abandon BPA for when you think you've got a guy. A good example of this is how the Browns and Jets took Mayfield and Darnold in this past draft over higher graded guys like Barkley and Chubb. Saquon was graded at a 7.45 on NFL.com and Chubb was graded at 7.32. Those are extremely good grades. They basically equal a projection of "this guy is a surefire perennial All Pro." Meanwhile Mayfield and Darnold were graded lower. Darnold ended up getting a 7 by the end, but he was in the mid 6s for most of the process and I believe Lance Zierlein bumped up his grade based on scuttlebutt when it became clear he was a top three lock. And Baker was only graded at a 6.04. It was the right call for both the Jets and Browns to take those QBs over the higher graded players at other positions. They look like they're headed in the right direction and the Giants and Broncos look like they're adrift. QBs are the foundation for your team. You've got to lay that foundation in order to build your house on top of it.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    You can go with lesser players at positions like LG and C. We have good options at the other spots. You can find good starters at interior line positions outside of the first round. Every team in the league starts players at guard or center who aren't first rounders. But you can't go with a lesser player at QB. Not if you want to break that 8-8 ceiling. You have got to have a QB. And you are extremely unlikely to find good starting QBs outside of the first round. There are only a couple in the NFL. Actually the exact number is seven and Drew Brees was picked with the 32nd pick. And I think it's unclear whether Carr, Prescott, and Dalton are actually good quarterbacks. There are quite a bit more than seven good starting guards and centers in the NFL who were taken outside of the first.

    I've enjoyed the discussions about defensive linemen and linebackers, but the elephant in the room in this thread is that we need a quarterback. - none of the first round options this year are particularly clean or impressive. - giving Jay a fourth shot at the position is not very appealing. I'm hoping some underappreciated guys emerge later on in the season like Trubisky and Mahomes did. I'm going to start watching the first round guys more intensively, and hope the Giants don't back into a stud.

    ***2018-19 NBA Season Thread***

    Him being a bust feels like one of the more under-reported stories in the league right now. Earlier today I had Steven A Smith and Magic Johnson blowing smoke up my ass about Lonzo being this home run draft pick for their regime and how LeBron and Rondo were going to take him under their wing and nevermind the fact that they'll take his spot in the rotation and everyone who understands anything about the NBA can see he's about to get that Darko Milicic treatment. First take and the SAS show were a willing mouthpiece for Lakers propaganda trying to gussy up the trade value for one of their draft busts. It's not just stupid basketball people like SAS gassing Lonzo up either. Zach Lowe did it in his predictions column when he floated the unbelievably stupid trade of Lonzo plus some crap for Damian Lillard. SMFH. He's supposed to be the smart and honest one. His analysis is becoming much more typically ESPN. Their NBA coverage is an utterly compromised farce.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    Yeah Brooks sucks. Thoroughly outcoached tonight. **** play from almost everyone but Wall and Beal. **** officiating. **** way to start the season. NBA reffing makes it hard to enjoy this product if you have a rooting interest in one of the teams. Tired of the ****ing point shaving man.

    Good job swinging the ball around to Beal there. That was actually good offense.
