I think we both agreed on the Boogie to the Lakers thing, I really hope I'm wrong but I do not see 84 mill being a smart signing

Never ever ever ever draft a running back in the first round, let alone at number two. The days of needing to draft a running back that high are long gone.

Look at Kareem Hunt. Drafted in the 3rd round by the Chiefs and led the league last year.

It is a massive reach to draft a RB in the 1st in the modern NFL.

SB is a special kind of talent....intuitive, teachable, Barry Sander's gifted, and smart.

NFL is in constant rotation and change...it's swung away from backs and it will swing back..

Pretty sure Ezekiel Elliott, Todd Hurley, and Fournette would still go first round today as they are the cream of the crop in the league (Peterson, Lynch, Gordon and Ingram all must have been insane reaches too?)

Stop believing everything bspn tells you...all first round picks are serious reaches...your example could apply to QBs..."Brady went in the sixth...all QBs taken in first five rounds is a reach those days are over"

It has nothing to do with ESPN. It has to do with 30 years of watching the NFL. Saquon may do great, but no way do you take a back in Rd 1.

I hear ya. And I still stand by my position. There are way too many talented RBs to take one that high. In every draft. In today's NFL, almost every position on offense takes precedence over a RB. If you're set elsewhere, a 3rd round RB can take care of business. If you're not set elsewhere, a 1st round RB makes little difference.

Trust me, I wanted Josh Rosen to the Giants. But I can get on board. Could have also grabbed Quentin nelson at #2 and draft Darius guice or sonny Michel in round 2

Not cancelled, but if the new rules are any indication it is a different sport.


I really like Cleveland :hehe:

It's been a different sport for decades ...heard someone say it's turning into 11 man arena league ball...Soo sad, it's so true

Bought some sweet Tix for the vikes game vs the Rams...in what I expect to be the last nfl game I see at the Los Angeles memorial collosium...first Thursday game...haven't seen my vikes in a while...nice having an nfc team in LA where the vikes will play every 6 years to go along with the bolts in the afc every 8 years...doubled my rotation!

Def can't wait for the season to start (preseason holds about as much weight for me as off-season)

I should probably post here more.

I took my 10 year old to Chiefs camp up in St. Joseph (4.5 hour drive) a couple weeks ago. We had a great time. He got 6 autographs, including the coaches. Chris Jones was incredibly nice and made sure every kid got an autograph.

I'm really looking forward to the season starting. That absolute bomb thrown by Mahones against the Falcons was absolutely ridiculous. The Chiefs offense should be special, which it will need to be in order to compensate for a less stellar defense.

So yeah...Go Chiiiiiiiiiiieeeefs and fuck the Rams. Was funny to see the Colosseum completely filled with Raiders fans. LA will never care much about football.

I went to the Seahawks game vs. the Colts when I was in Seattle 2 weeks ago.

My buddy had a friend who works for the organization and we got to sit 4th row.

It was pretty awesome.

Go football!
