  1. Pointless win today. Only hurts draft position. Teams could be very motivated to move up to #1, or #2 to take a QB. Will be nice to get multiple picks and shore up LT, TE, CB. IMHO, we need to embrace the tank.
  2. #1 draft pick in 2020. Trade down to get LT, C, RG, LG, RT, WR, TE, DT, DE, NT, CB, ILB, Coach, Owner, GM, Medical Staff, Marketing Dept,
  3. You're doing great not going after expensive free agents, sticking with a GM-coach combo and staying out of running the team. We're stuck until Alex Smith's guaranteed payments are over with. Don't worry about media image -- doubt it can get any worse than it already is. 1) Tank this season. Get top 2 draft slot in 2020. Trade down to get multiple picks. We still haven't recovered from picks lost in RG3 trade. 2) Invest in analytics. Catch up with Philly, and Chiefs in using analytics to make better picks, player development and free agent decisions. 3) Make sure the coach and GM (existing or new) are expert getting the most out of each player's strength, at in-game adjustments, and clock mgmt. Nevermind if they are good in front of a camera, or liked by players, or have had a lot of prior success.
  4. Red States need to focus on improving education standards.
  5. Cleveland brass is playing a very cool experiment. Will take years to find out if it works. But if it does it will change NFL drafting. Podesta must have some new data/metrics to go "all in" on a strategy like this. In previous years, he admitted that the team nature of the sport and the lack of good data made predicting wins and losses very difficult in the NFL (as opposed to baseball where the matchup is pitcher vs. hitter). Maybe they take each position and work on matchup metrics to exceed performance in key positions and see if that totals up to more wins. Very very curious. I'm a data junkie and get very excited about the "how". Will be tracking the Brown's progress (or lack thereof) very closely to see if this type of data-driven strategy can be effective in a team sport with evenly matched teams where one or two plays make a big difference
  6. Not every insult is intended. Many happen because people just don't know better. And they are 100% sure they are not being insulting. So they keep doing it and wonder why everyone is acting funny.

    Paloffs is Now: 2007(merged)

    Oh, geez, not this again. It was funny back in the day. But now it just reeks of broken hearts and false hopes. Z-shades, Malcomb, Jason Candle, Bug Eyes, Brandon Lloyd the Rapper.. it's all coming back. Too much pain. This team has been a very hard one to love. Some things are better left in a box in the attic.
