Bmore Manning

Absolutely.

Ty Law posted up great seasons and great numbers back in the day. But he was a big time mugger and big on downfield contact and benefited from a lot of zones.

Back in the day, Bailey played strict man without over the top help so his numbers were lower.

The comparison is pretty identical. I haven't seen anyone get away with illegal contact more than Sherman since Law himself.

No Law was not better than Bailey and I don't think the comparisons are completely identical, but I think it paints your picture. However, Sherman plays a lot of man coverage without over the top help. Thomas usually rolls over top of Browner. But they mix up zone and man, Sherman will play lots of man. Peterson plays majority man but he gets over the top help. Neither are left completely alone every snap on an island.

I still think PP has more upside..

Typical Rev, asked to link proof to QBR vs CB's and doesn't. Instead deflect and say same crap you always do. I have no problem with PP it's just funny your obsession to defend him.

Rev is a pretty good evaluator of DBs and he's right we need another one.. But I'm with you on this one, I'm scratching my head as to why he likes Robinson. Robinson is terrible.

Of all his posts that is what makes you scratch your head?

errand
03-10-2013, 09:30 AM
He probably was loving him coming out of college and just can't stop the bromance. Just like how PP can do no wrong. That would be my guess.

Exactly.....Rev goes queer for a CB's gear and he'll defend him until doomsday.

I still laugh at his "too bad the 49ers don't have a WR that can showcase PP's skills" comment......and then still tried to defend him after he was made to lick a cat's ass in that game by whomever the 49ers lined up on him.

errand
03-10-2013, 09:33 AM
As far as Robinson, hes awful. I'd be curious as to why Rev would want him..?

Maybe, and I'm just spitballin' here.....but maybe he's just not as smart as you people and he think he is?

He's like everyone else on this board....right about some things...and wrong about most.

03-10-2013, 09:42 AM
Are you being serious?

Yes, he is.....you just slobbered all over PP, and he still gets bitchy. Why? Because you questioned his opinion of Dunta Robinson.

See Rev hates being called out on anything. Especially when he says some clown is all that and a bag of chips...he like his moniker thinks you should just take his opinion as the gospel.

This is why he gets blasted in here a lot whenever he's wrong, because like Fonzie or Sheldon Cooper, he can't admit it when he is wrong.....he's a typical narcissistic kind of guy.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Rams are not expected to re-sign free agent Danny Amendola due to his contract demands.
Amendola is said to be seeking Brian Hartline money ($6 million per year), and that's more than the Rams are "willing to invest" given his injury history. With Amendola and fellow free agent Brandon Gibson on their way out in St. Louis, the Rams are staring at an overhaul atop their receiver depth chart from what we've been accustomed to in recent years. That may not be a bad thing.

and it's really just QB's.


that is too much cap space for a CB, no matter how good he is. that's like 15% of the total cap allotted to a team. i had no problem with giving Champ 10 mil then or now. but you don't pay a CB 15 mil for any reason until the cap goes up to like 160 mil.

I really don't know where they come up with these Drop stats, Like the one with Bowe. Fasano was targeted 61 times and had 41 catches. I know where the QB places the ball counts but to say a guy targeted 20 other times and failed to come down with the ball is just as telling as a subjective "drop" catagory.

He will certainly be an upgrade but he is not going to be as scary as going up against the Pat's TE's.

I don't even know the scrubs name your stumblebum franchise trotted out as the 2nd and 3rd string TE's last year. It is a good move, just not fearing the signing.

Plus he should work well with your short armed Steve Bono 3.0.

I think we are going to see a wave of QB deals that will handcuff teams. Flacco and Romo getting these record deals is really going to muddy the water for the Packers with Rodgers and eventually Matt Ryan in Atlanta who on the last year of his deal. What will be really interesting is to see where the cutoff for QBs is, Jay Cutler is a free agent next year as is Josh Freeman, what kind of deals can those guys expect? Neither has the super bowl win that Flacco and Rodgers do or the passing stats of Romo.

people said the draft slotting would mean the NFL would spend less on both the draft and FA's and the NFLPA was shooting itself in the foot for giving that money up.

uh uh, stupid owners will always be stupid and find ways to give out insane deals. a player is not going to say "yeah, i'm not really worth this 20+ mil a year you're offering me." the NFLPA, the agents and other players would kill a player who said that because it sets the market for others.

The Oakland Raiders have an agreement in principle to acquire quarterback Matt Flynn from the Seattle Seahawks for two draft picks -- one in the 2014 draft and a conditional pick in 2015, according to league sources.

The Raiders also are trying to finalize a trade that will send Carson Palmer to the Arizona Cardinals for minimal compensation, sources said.

Raiders give Flynn considerably more guaranteed money

SouthStndJunkie
04-01-2013, 07:21 PM
Per a source with knowledge of the transaction, the Raiders have adjusted Matt Flynn’s contract to increase his guaranteed money from $2 million in 2013 to $6.5 million. All $6.5 million is fully guaranteed.

To get there, the Raiders increased Flynn’s base salary from $5.25 million in 2013 and decreased his 2014 base salary by $1.25 million, from $6.25 million down to $5 million. Making the entire 2013 compensation fully guaranteed means that Flynn definitely will have a roster spot with the Raiders for the coming season.

Also, the available escalators and incentives were increased by $200,000, with a maximum value now at $26.4 million over three years. Flynn already received $8 million from the Seahawks in 2012.

Ha!

You forgot Craig Morton who led the Cowboys to SB V

In 1971, the Cowboys had a quarterback controversy between Craig Morton and Roger Staubach. Morton and Staubach alternated as the starting quarterback during the regular season. Landry eventually settled on Morton for most of the second half of the season, because he felt less confident that Staubach would follow his game plan (Landry called all of Morton's plays).

Also, Morton had done extremely well in the regular season, throwing for 1,819 yards and 15 touchdowns, with only 7 interceptions, earning him a passer rating of 89.8.

In contrast, Staubach, although a noted scrambler and able to salvage broken plays effectively, threw for 542 yards, and only 2 touchdowns compared to 8 interceptions, giving him a 42.9 rating.

He was a very good QB whose confidence was shaken by the benching in Dallas, and then being sent to Hades (NY Giants), before being re-born in Denver at the age of 34. One of my personal all time favorite players....

To put the length of his career in perspective in terms of the Lions, Jason Hanson was drafted only 5 months after Mike Utley was paralyzed in a game against the Los Angeles Rams in 1991. I was actually at that game.

Barry Sanders had just finished his 3rd season with the Lions when they drafted Jason Hanson.

Dan Reeves was still the head coach of the Denver Broncos when Jason Hanson was a rookie.

The Kansas City Chiefs last won a playoff game in 1993, Jason Hanson's second season in the NFL.

Ronnie Hillman was about 7 months old when Jason Hanson was drafted.

Trent Cole - LB - Eagles

Eagles OLB Trent Cole's February hand surgery was performed to address multiple tendon tears and a snapped bone near his right wrist.
Cole says he played with the injury in 2011, but in 2012 "finally it snapped in half and I had to get some surgery." Cole turned in the worst year of his career last season, which -- in hindsight -- isn't surprising because pass rushers rely so much on hand usage. "Ill straight up tell you I had a bad year," said 30-year-old Cole. "And its not going to happen again."

MLB or LB period? if just LB then Jordan,Ansah(if he goes to a 3-4 team) and Mingo.
if just MLB then the only likely candidate would be Te'o but only if he can provide INT's and not got exposed on the edges.
Brown is more overrated than Te'o, Minter is more of a bruising thumper.

Obviously ILBs.. There is no way a rookie plays on Dansby's level over a two year span. Dansby has been a forgotten stud ILB in the NFL.. Just does everything right. Darryl Washington reminds me of a Dansby, in that he's very well rounded and talented. Washington is an under the radar up and coming star, where Dansby is an under the radar star already..

He must want big money.. After all he thinks he's the best ILB in football.

This story is great for a couple of reasons....

1) Although drafted as a Chief...he wanted nothing to do with that pathetic franchise and retired as a Saint.

2) Loved the comment by someone that commented that Scott was able to get his contract signed and faxed in from Machu Picchu....while Doom couldn't manage it from Kinkos in Miami.

Scott Fujita retires as a Saint

Linebacker Scott Fujita signed a one-day contract with the New Orleans Saints on Monday and then announced his retirement after 11 seasons in the NFL.

Fujita signed his contract in Machu Picchu, which is located in the Andes Mountains in Peru. He's there with former Saints teammate Steve Gleason, who is battling Lou Gehrig's Disease.

In a statement from the team, Fujita said he couldn't think of a better place to be to announce his retirement.

"What better place to reach the end of the road than here at 10,000 feet above sea level, in the Peruvian Andes overlooking Machu Picchu with my dear friend Steve Gleason?"

Fujita was one of four players suspended by the NFL in its investigation of the Saints' bounty program but fought to clear his name of the three-game ban. Commissioner Roger Goodell later reduced Fujita's suspension to one game before the suspensions of all players implicated were later vacated by former commissioner Paul Tagliabue.

The 33-year-old Fujita, who played for the Cleveland Browns the past three seasons, helped the Saints win a Super Bowl during his time with the team (2006-09).

Fujita was credited with four tackles in the Saints' 31-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV. He also played for the Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys.

He has 767 tackles, 23.5 sacks, 11 forced fumbles and seven interceptions in 143 career games.

"I've been fortunate to play in this league for a long time and for some great organizations, but there is no doubt that my times spent in New Orleans were some of the best years of my life," Fujita said in the statement.

"The way the team and the community embraced us when we first arrived, and the way they continue to do so, even today, shows how deep this connection is. I'm honored to be a part of this organization and so proud to retire as a New Orleans Saint."

General manager Mickey Loomis and coach Sean Payton pointed out in the team's statement that Fujita was the first player the team signed in free agency after Payton became the team's coach in 2006.

"It was an important acquisition for us, getting a player of his caliber to come to New Orleans despite the conditions [post-Hurricane Katrina] for a number of reasons because he saw an opportunity to become involved in the rebuilding of the city, yet quickly realized how important the team was to that effort," Loomis said.

Payton called Fujita "a cornerstone of the foundation that we've built and we won a World Championship together.

"It's been said that when you win a championship together, you walk together for the rest of your lives and that's certainly appropriate to celebrate on a day like today."

According to reports in KC, Albert will most likely be playing RT (possibly G) while Fisher plays LT.

It's obvious that our coach and GM prefer Fisher. Albert seems to have no choice as of now.

If he's upset and holds out, then he's going to lose a lot of money.

Like The Panthers that are planning on Drayton Florence being a starting CB for them Hilarious! Is Carter worth a LB since they are stacked with them? Jon Beason, AJ Klein, Chase Blackburn, and Luke Kuechly are capable of playing MLB in the NFL(Klein being a wildcard).

Ian Rapoport ‏ @ RapSheet 5m
From Total Access: I'm told parties view Branden Albert deal as "dead." Chiefs will now turn their attention to a long-term deal for Albert.

Great deal. And this is even better..

Ian Rapoport ‏ @ RapSheet 4m
From Total Access: Source says # Dolphins offered just a third-rounder for Branden Albert, not No. 54 like we all thought. Didn't get it done


Props to John Dorsey. Giving Albert away for only a 3rd is foolish. OL looks much better with both Fisher and Albert on the team.




Hahahaha! Remember in the Cheifs suck thread where you were excited about a second from the Dolphins, and I told you they would only settle for a third? You thought the Cheifs had all the leverage in that deal, because you had no idea who was on the Dolphins roster LOL


Typical homerism, overrating your teams players.

Bears have four draft picks signed already. They are not messing around!

Marquess Wilson - WR - Bears

Bears agreed to terms with No. 236 overall picks WR Marquess Wilson on a four-year contract.
Wilson (6-foot-2 5/8, 194) didn't play football in 2012 after leaving Washington State and alleging "abuse" against coach Mike Leach. As a junior in 2011, Wilson caught 82 passes for 1,388 yards and 12 touchdowns. He has a realistic shot at seeing significant snaps as a rookie in three-wide sets.


Khaseem Greene - LB - Bears

Bears agreed to terms with No. 117 overall pick OLB Khaseem Greene on a four-year contract.
Greene (6-foot 3/4, 241) plays faster than his 4.71 forty time indicates, and he also has a nose for the football. He led Rutgers with 125 tackles and forced six fumbles as a senior. Greene projects as Lance Briggs' heir apparent at weak-side linebacker, but he'll likely focus on special teams as a rookie.


Bears ink fifth-rounder Mills to 4-year deal

Bears agreed to terms with No. 167 overall pick G/T Jordan Mills on a four-year contract.
Mills is the first draft pick to sign. The Bears moved quickly to lock up their picks in 2012, and are expected to do so again this season. GM Phil Emery singled out Mills' versatility as one of the main reasons the Bears drafted him. "We'll probably start him out at right tackle and let him learn a little bit and we'll move him around." Mills has prototypical left-tackle size (6-foot-5, 316 pounds, 34-inch arms), but limited athleticism means he'll stick at right tackle and guard


Bears get sixth-rounder Washington signed

Bears agreed to terms with No. 188 overall pick DE Cornelius Washington on a four-year contract.
Washington (6-foot-4, 265 pounds) lit up the Combine with a 4.55 40-yard dash and 1.60 ten-yard split, but a lack of college production sent him tumbling to the sixth round after he was mocked as high as the third. Washington will back up LE Corey Wootton at a rookie. He's a project.

Ravens sneak in and re-sign Bryant McKinnie

Ravens agreed to terms with LT Bryant McKinnie on a two-year contract.
McKinnie had reportedly been weighing offers from the Dolphins and Chargers on Thursday, but the Ravens were lurking in the tall grass and found a way to get the 34-year-old back under contract. It's just another strong signing for GM Ozzie Newsome this offseason. San Diego could turn its attention to free agent Max Starks, while Miami is likely to roll with Jonathan Martin at left tackle. The Ravens offensive line shapes up like this: LT McKinnie, LG Kelechi Osemele, C Gino Gradkowksi, RG Marshal Yanda, and RT Michael Oher.

smart move by the Bears. get the guys signed and ready to go so your new coach can assess this team properly and get them moving in the direction he desires. plus, they can't afford any distractions after Lovie and Urlacher.

Ravens should have Franchised him then drafted a LT in the 1st round and then try to trade him for 2nd round pick and threaten to move him to RT, that sounds like that would work every time right?

He is worth a 2nd and that's why he wasn't traded. Now we're keeping a good (but not great OL) to add to another good one we just got and that's making the team better.

Jeff Ireland is a fool if he truly thinks Jonathan Martin is going to be a force at LT IMO.

According to reports in KC, Albert will most likely be playing RT (possibly G) while Fisher plays LT.

It's obvious that our coach and GM prefer Fisher. Albert seems to have no choice as of now.

If he's upset and holds out, then he's going to lose a lot of money.

Report on ESPN's NFL Live today was that Albert was going to play LT and Fisher will start at RT so you did draft a RT 1st overall.

I think it is more a ploy by Reid to placate Albert and get him to show and not hold out.

As of right now all trade options for Albert are dead. If kFc really wanted to move him they should have taken a 3rd and maybe a lower conditional type pick next year in the 3-5 range.

I'm not taking his word at 100% right now because I think they are still trying to trade him. It decreases his value to say that he is a RT.

I think Albert is worth more than a 3rd as seen by his pass protection the last 2 years. I think what's holding him back is his price tag though.
Having Albert back is far more valuable than losing him for only a 3rd round pick. I don't think he's elite, but I think he is good.

I think there is no doubt about it that Fisher will be the long term LT. Might start off at RT at first, but I think in 2014 he'll be the LT.

Reid drafted Andrews in the first round to be an OT in tackle but played him at G his first year before moving him to OT, so he has a history of this.

How are the Chiefs going to keep Albert in 2014? He said he wont to move to RT (meaning he wants to be paid like a LT) and you're not going to pay him LT money to play RT.

Next year is supposed to be another big crop for premium LTs so this whole situation is going to come up again, especially since the salary cap isn't expected to go up again next year. Teams will go younger and cheaper (like the Chiefs just did).

Panthers | Open to trading DeAngelo Williams
Sun, 05 May 2013 10:11:38 -0700

Carolina Panthers general manager David Gettleman did not rule out the possibility of trading RB DeAngelo Williams at some point.

He has no trade value, but I wouldn't mind picking him up if he was cut. Dump Moreno and McGahee and roll with Ball, Williams, and Hillman as our 3 RBs with Hester as the utility back.

Well, we had no shot on him unless we moved up big time. Glad we got Sylvester Williams and Ball should contribute from Day 1. Now, I'd of gladly moved future picks to get him. 3rd + future 3rd to get Cyprien. Oh ya.

Money Ball will be fine. if nothing else he will score in the red zone.
if Williams gets cut i'd be all over him, but he'll likely go to a team with a clearly defined starting role for him.

Moreno has blown out his knee twice now on 207 touches. He can't be counted on as a back up. Williams is better then at this point in their careers. There is no team left where Williams would be a clear cut starter, at least in Denver he is with a coach he knows and the primary vet back up on a team that could use him.

like i said, i'd be all over him like a gold digger on a rich athlete.
but he might hold out for a starting job so he can regain some of his lost revenue from being cut.

but realistically, the Panthers can't afford to cut him. their running game was pure **** without him doing well.

They drafted Kenjon Barner in the 6th and have tons of money tied up in Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams, and Mike Tolbert. Rumors are suggesting that they have been shopping him for over a year now. Seems like he is the odd man out in the eyes of the Panthers FO.

Ed Reed has arthroscopic hip surgery. Supposed to be ready for TC.

Steve Spagnuolo signed as defensive assistant with the Ravens.

Tony Sparano signed as OL coach for the Raiders.

Two former HC's, they've fallen a bit. Add in Raheem Morris who I believe is the DB's coach for Washington. Hey, at least JDR is hanging onto his DC position, hasn't fallen as far as those three.

There sure has been a boatload of former HC's lately that have fallen past the Coordinator level.

Rod Marinelli, currently DL coach for the Cowboys. Lovie Smith, not employed at this time. Mike Tice, not employed at this time. Interesting that Marinelli, Lovie, and Tice were just last season the Bears' DC, HC and OC.

i get that, but every back they have signed currently has injury issues. especially Stewart. they can afford to rely on Stewart to stay healthy, Tolbert to carry the load if one of them is out and a rookie to pick it up if someone can't hack it or gets cut.

the Panthers owner is cheap as ****. he didn't really spend money on that team for years until they re-signed all their own FA's to big deals to entice fans into thinking he had changed.

the mother would cut Cam Newton to save money if he could get away with it and it didn't affect his bottom line.
