    I might be a United fan but more than that I am a fan of football and I just have to say this Liverpool team is spectacular. In full flow it is almost like Klopp is DaVinci and his players are the Sistine Chapel, they have made Barcelona look like Cardiff City tonight.

    Shaqiri with a hat trick tonight. I know he stole Klopp's muesli or something but with all the injuries he has to play now. Alpine Messi to become a legend.

    Well that was another wretched performance from United. Over at the Redcafe they are getting ready to jump off tall buildings but on the bright side we don't have to go into next week at home to Cardiff clinging to some delusion of hope for a top 4 finish. In reality missing top 4 might be a blessing in the long run. The big name players linked with the club will not be coming for Europa League and a bunch of the overpaid deadwood will want out too. The team needs a tear it down to the studs rebuild focused on young, emerging and ambitious players and this result is going to force them to do just that. Pogba, whether you rate him or not, is of more use as a sellable asset than as part of the squad and DeGea and Lukaku should be moved on too. If only we had a football man to identify our new signings but sadly final authority will still rest with investment banker, Ed Woodward, who will continue to play Championship Manager as a way of assembling his squad.
  5. Zach Brown is notorious for having no D Intel, it's why we let him go
  6. I would absolutely quit following this team if they signed Hill. I don't see it as likely as I imagine he has some jail time in his future and even if he doesn't the details as they are I think the owners will agree amongst themselves to end his career. I struggle with the AP thing to be honest, I am looking forward to him retiring, being cut or getting traded.

    Will the coaching be good enough for the talent?

    I expect Williams, Moses, Scherff and Roullier to play 16 games each and we have plenty of candidates to find a LG from. I mean if you are just going to assume the worst before training camp even starts you might as well put a grand on Washington for the first pick next year and take a 12 month vacation from watching the team.

    Will the coaching be good enough for the talent?

    Jay actually does like to run the ball but for most of his tenure we have had sub par talent in the run game and so he would check into the passing game mostly through frustration but he does like to run it. I am higher on Jay than most here but I think he has a weakness with game management. For the talent at his disposal I believe he is an excellent game planner and I would put him in the top 10 offensive minds when it comes to play design, specifically around getting multiple targets open. What hurts Jay is that his play calling in game is subpar because I think he has too much on his plate. McVay deserves some credit obviously but when he was here and we were putting up big numbers he was calling Jay's plays, he just benefitted from being free to focus on the offense only. I would personally feel a lot better going forward if O'Connell was handed play calling responsibilities and Jay focused on the big picture in games. Manusky on the other hand is simply lost. If we don't open with 4 or 5 wins in our first 6 games I strongly believe he will be let go and either Horton or Ryan will be asked to step up. We clearly would have fired him if Bowles had not chosen Tampa over us and with 2 new guys with DC experience in the building Manusky is on a very hot seat to start the season and rightly so.

    Would you want HBO Hard Knocks to feature us this year?

    Smart money still says the Raiders. AB84, Chucky, getting ready to ditch Oakland. Appointment television.
  10. Signing Eric Berry would be paying for a name and not production at this point. Berry was beloved in Kansas City and they wouldn't even entertain keeping him around on a reduced contract. I know he wants to play but considering his recent injury history I wouldn't be shocked if he retired before pre-season.

    Starting QB 2019???

    I think the big concern is that from the article it makes it seem as though his Dad wants to control aspects of his career and that did not work well with a certain first round QB in Washington a few years ago and it was also an issue for the Giants with Eli Apple and his mom. I am honestly cool on all of these prospects and would rather fill other spots on the roster but if we go QB I at least hope we get one by staying out or trading back, if we move up for these guys I am going to start throwing stuff.

    If this is accurate then it raise a major red flag around Haskins, over involved parents with their own agenda are never a good thing; https://www.nj.com/giants/2019/04/heres-the-strange-conversation-i-had-with-dawyne-haskins-father-before-he-hung-up-on-me.html

    That’s our Europa League spot sealed. Trying not to be knee jerk here but this is hard to watch, especially when this lot lost to Fulham last week. I just hope Ole is given time to fix this because anyone expecting an instant turnaround next year is out of touch with reality.

    2019 ES GMs Mock Draft - Final!

    I am going to be merciful and not drag this out too long, with 3 picks in a row I am going to go ahead and announce them all in this one post. I would just like to say thanks to the preceding 10 GMs for not taking any of these guys since I finalized my decisions yesterday. I trust this means that I am more perceptive than all of you and is not an indication that I am overvaluing trash To kick things off. With the 209th pick in the ES Mock Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals select Cameron Smith, ILB, USC The Bengals have many needs on defense and having addressed EDGE at the top of the 3rd with Oshane Ximines and traded back into the 4th to get some DL help with Chris Slayton it is now time to solidify the middle of our linebacking group. Smith may not be a talent that jumps out at you but in a 4 year career at USC he has been a model of consistency, bouncing back from a serious knee injury in his freshman year to become a leader on the Trojans defense, earning first team PAC 12 honors in 2017 and earning second team honors in 2018 despite missing a few games. Smith is a reliable and consistent tackler with the ability to read the game and diagnose plays at the line and the football intelligence to take smart angles in coverage to avoid being exposed. He might not have the highest ceiling but his floor has him contributing in year one and once he finds his feet at this level he should be at worst a rotational player in the Bengals revamped defense and quite possibly an every game starter. Next up. With the 210th pick in the ES Mock Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals select Saquon Hampton, Safety, Rutgers Continuing the focus on rebuilding a defense that has become soft and slow in the final years of the Marvin Lewis era we are thrilled to add a player whose leadership skills and on field play should have seen his name called before the end of the third round. Shoulder injuries might have contributed to the lack of draft buzz but Saquon is a real player earning team MVP honors in his Senior year and honorable mention in the All-Big Ten team. Played close to the line he can be a ferocious tackler in run support but also has the ability to man cover tight ends on shallow routes , even playing as a linebacker in nickel and dime packages, his ratio of pass break ups and interceptions also demonstrates his skill at tracking the football and knack for being in the right place to make a big play. Finally. with the 211th pick in the ES Mock Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals select Kerrith Whyte, RB, FAU Our retooled offense will certainly need production from the ground game and we expect most of this to come from Joe Mixon but behind him the cupboard is pretty bare. Gio Bernard is an excellent 3rd down back but is never going to manage 20 carries between the tackles and we only have last years UDFA Quinton Flowers on our roster backing these 2 up. Kerrith Whyte gives us an immediate high quality backup to Joe Mixon and a player who can not only chip in with a few carries per game but could carry the load as the lead dog in the event Joe is hurt or suspended. The presence of Devin Singletary kept Whyte in a backup role at college but when asked to play he showed impressive burst and twitch at the line of scrimmage totaling 866 yards on only 134 carries in 2018 and also becoming a factor in the passing game. He also logged a 4.36 40 at his pro day so he has the breakaway speed to turn plays into home runs. Finally, and most significantly, he is a 6th round running back from FAU and we all know what they can do! Thus concludes the 2019 Cincinnati Bengals draft, time for a few cold ones as I watch the 7th round play out.
