  1. We just have to hope Clemson doesn't somehow show up on our schedule...

    The Cult of Case

    I have to thank you for reminding me that there's a new regime in AZ, and that the new coach has a connection with Murray. This made me spend some time looking at Rosen, and I'm thinking it might not be a bad idea if we don't have to give up much to get him. It's low risk, and if he doesn't work out, we can move on in 2020.

    Starting QB 2019???

    Watching tape of Rosen's 2018 games because he's being talked about so much, and I didn't really watch him much during the season; just looked at his numbers and what others were saying. He's more f a traditional pocket passer, which I like, and his arm strength makes it look like his throws are often effortless. And because the Cards were so bad up front, he did have to take off and run a lot, and he shows just enough athleticism to do this pretty well. I could see how he might be a good fit for what Jay likes to do. His INTs are a concern; he has to improve his judgement. FOr the hell of it - and because there was so much material about it - I watched a bunch of stuff about his character and his opinions. I actually like how he handles himself in interviews. He's intelligent, and shows he has confidence in himself, and all QBs need that confidence that borders on arrogance. BUt he will have to improve his play to back it up. I don't know enough about the QBs that could be available to the SKins in the draft, but if we could get Rosen in a trade for the right price, it would be like getting a 1st round QB without actually giving up our 1st, and then we could address other areas at #15. With all the other scenarios that we have for QB in 2019, this might not be so bad, and there's not a lot of risk involved.

    Perhaps. I don't know, I just feel like if we trade for him, we're just picking up another team's failed experiment. I'm not optimistic abut his chances for the season if he's with us. And if Keenum shows any of what he had in Minnesota 2 seasons ago, Rosen might not even get on the field.

    Still, it is highly unusual for a team to move on from a first round QB who's only been on the team 1 year if he has a good deal of potential, new coaching staff or not. If they believed in him at all, they'd at least want a QB competition in training camp. They could always move him in August , when other teams realize they have needs at QB they didn't anticipate.

    It's one thing when it's the fans calling them busts, but when the team that drafted him gives up on him, you have to have some doubts. They're around him every day, and have a much better idea of his potential at this point than anyone else, and they may already be ready to move on from him.

    WHy so much talk about Josh Rosen? If the Cardinals are willing to give up on a 1st round pick after 1 year, what does he have to offer us? Also, a couple of guys on NFL Radio were slamming him over questions about his work ethic (last man in, first man out), and in college he was called out by name for criticism by his coach. He's most likely on his way to a very unremarkable pro career, no matter where he winds up. Might as well go with Case this year. Also, if Arizona's end game is to have Case, they could have just gone directly to Denver for him. No need to have a middle man.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Bruce needs to go. As much as I hate to say it, Gruden should get another year. 24 players on IR (and 27 last season) gives you very little chance of running your offense the way you want. And I'd hate for him to collect the 10 million left on his deal for him to sit home. If they get rid of Manusky, what about promoting Tomsula? He's been a HC before, so DC shouldn't be a problem for him.

    Redskins Cut DJ Swearinger!

    Players were probably off yesterday, so today would have been the first chance for Jay to meet with him. Fourth team to get tired of this guy's schtick. It's a shame, because he's a decent player. But then again, he's no Ronnie Lott or Ed Reed. Needed to tone down the rhetoric until he has the legacy to back it up. I think he was trying to force the players to accept him as a leader, but he was doing it with words and not actions. I've read there's guys on the D who would roll their eyes when he'd start spouting off.

    The Grilling and Cooking Thread

    Enjoying this thread... As for BBQ sauces, for pork I have found mixing some apple cider vinegar into a Memphis style sauce (I use Sticky Fingers) works very well on pulled pork and ribs. For beef, I go with Bulls Eye Texas style sauce. It's peppery with a little heat, and goes well with chicken too.

    The last movie you saw......GO! (After you read the OP!!!!)

    I totally agree with this, and it's also why I believe Rock is dead. They have sanitized it. They've sanitized the music industry, and now they're sanitizing its history with movies like this. That said, I did enjoy Bohemian Rhapsody. It was chronologically incorrect - Freddy probably wasn't even aware he had HIV when they signed on to do Live Aid - and I thought they wasted the last half hour recreating the entire Live Aid performance instead of giving Queen fans more insight into the 80's era and the music they were making at the dawn of the video age. But I liked how they told the story of his relationship with Mary. And I liked the performances. The guy playing Brian May looked just like him!

    I was a weeping mess watching that movie. If you could remember he's not a real boy, I guess it would be a lot less sad, but you always feel like he is a real boy. As good as it is, I don't think I could go through the agony of watching it ever again.
  13. He's nearly at 30 goals with more than half the season to go. I think 60 goals is a real possibility this year.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    Jay is a players' coach, which has been to the detriment of the team. As soon as things go bad on a team coached by a players' coach, the players stop buying in, because they don't have the same respect/fear of what he'll do to them. Imagine what would happen to this group of players if they brought in a Belichick, or a Zimmer, or a Coughlin. Tough, demanding leaders who will make examples of underachieving spoiled brats.
