    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I'm talking more in regards to what Seattle did from 2010 to 2012 in draft: Golden Tate - 2nd rd Bobby Wagner - 2nd rd Russell Wilson - 3rd rd KJ Wright - 4th rd Walter Thurmond - 4th Richard Sherman - 5th rd Kam Chancellor - 5th rd Byron Maxwell - 6th rd Jeremy Lane - 6th rd JR Sweezy - 7th rd Malcom Smith - 7th rd Doug Baldwin - UDFA Jermaine Kearse - UDFA That's not counting their 1st rd picks Earl Thomas, Russel Okung, James Carpenter and Bruce Irvin who you expect to be good although Earl was really the only star of those 4. Okung was mostly overrated and Carpenter and Irvin were okay. That's what you call hitting doubles, triples and home runs in the draft and UDFA market. And when you do it in consecutive drafts like Seattle did, mixed with some good trades (Lynch) and a few key FA signings to fill in the holes (Avril, Bennett) you can contend.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    To use a baseball analogy, I think the Skins have been pretty good with hitting singles and doubles in recent drafts. However to really close the gap with the top teams they need to start hitting more triples and get some home runs in there.
  3. The Patriots gave Elelman a 2-year extension with $12M guaranteed, they didn't give him a top 5 WR contract. He didn't get $30M guaranteed like AB got from the Raiders. That is a value contract for what Edelman brings to the Patriots. I don't see the value in giving Trent more guaranteed money, right now, when his career appears to be descending.
  4. Desmond Harrison is an intriguing prospect. He's got the athleticism to be a good LT, although he was a 25 year old rookie last year and there are questions about how driven he is. I mean, he had a golden opportunity with the Browns after Joe Thomas retired and he blew it.

    The charges being dropped and no suspension didn't vindicate anything. Foster needed to stay out of trouble and be a contributor to this team for vindication. The injury is unfortunate, but then again he's had an injury history as well.

    Reuben Foster carted off on 2nd snap of OTA's

    Cushing and Bowman haven't played since 2017 and Cushing's done mostly because he can't stop using PEDs. The Skins have time to figure things out. A quality vet or two will be released at some point as the season approaches.

    So I assume it was Dan's decision to draft Taylor Jacobs in 2nd round of 2003 since he let the scouts draft Dockery in the 3rd. Welp at least Jacobs' looked like a HOFer in practice.

    Wouldn't surprise me if one of those 8 is another Spiderman movie. I think they'll try to get as much out of Tom Holland as they can while he's young.

    It's pretty clear they're going to do an all women team up movie at some point. Tessa Thompson said in an interview after Ragnrok that they approached Feige about it. There's a lot in this movie I think has deeper meaning other then just an easter egg. People think the earthquake under the ocean that Widow was asking Okoye about early in the movie is going to have something to do with Namor.

    True but at same time it’s very re-watchable and makes you want to go back and re-watch prior MCU movies. Bravo to the Russo Brothers and the screenwriters on this film. How they wove it all together in a cohesive way is pretty incrediable.

    Most are, but look at LOTR Return of the King. Everyone knew Frodo was going to complete his journey and destroy the ring in Mt Doom. However Peter Jackson was able to make it exciting, emotional, inspiring and even though you knew how it would end the stakes felt high. That's why it's considered one of the best if not the best finale film. I'm hoping Endgame can do the same.

    I think he was referring to David Cutcliffe who coached the Manning boys in college and Jones at Duke. He also coached Heath Shuler who was a bigger bust then Hackenberg based off where they were drafted.
  15. Spider Verse was a Sony production, not Disney.
