Separate names with a comma.
Sounds like Rodgers’ main beef is with the GM. If the Packers really want to keep him, the could fire (or reassign) the GM to keep him happy,...
The best thing about last year’s draft was that we weren’t subjected to the inane, incessant booing of Goodell EVERY TIME he stepped up to the mic.
Do you think they keep Hurns and Bowden?
Weren’t they on Nebraska’s schedule every year in the 80s and 90s?
I agree with your premise (don’t price yourself out of a job), but the NFLPA would never go for that. Plus, it goes against the very fiber of an...
The importance of this cannot be overstated, because when they are not on the same page (as so often happens), there is little chance of success.
Then you want Stevenson; he’s a big dude (250)
Michael Carter, Rhamondre Stevenson, Khalil Herbert are probably the best of what’s left
That’s the S Miami should have taken
Now they trade up?
Or Denver, lol
Just have to get past the Falcons now
The more I see and hear about him, the more impressed I am. Seems like a genuinely good person.
Weren’t there some issues between him and Chip Kelly that also contributed to his “retirement “?
Jags going to draft Amari Rogers next and make it a Clemson sweep?
Three more picks and it’s bedtime!
I really don’t think they’ll trade Rodgers, lol
How are you getting the picks ahead of the networks?
Oh, I don’t think he’s going anywhere, lol
With our luck, NE will find a way to trade for Aaron Rodgers, lol
Bears finally do something right on draft day.
Bengals let Burrow make that pick. They really needed Sewell or Slater.
Chicago is finally getting a qb
I say it’s Smith
They must have gotten who they wanted
They didn’t waste much time
I lol’d at “Quitty”
You got that right. It’s always more shocking when you do t see someone for a long time as opposed to seeing them regularly.
Aside from that,...
Wow, Bernie got old
And I would think Miami would hold even more temptation than Houston.
Death, taxes, and this
Smith in one half of the championship game vs Ohio State > Ted Ginn’s entire career
Both of those scenarios are possible. If Pitts is there at 6, run the card up and don’t look back. If he’s gone, and Lance or Fields is still...
I don’t think Smith is a consolation prize if we lose out on Chase, but man, I really hope Pitts is there at #6.
He was, for a hot minute
Will definitely watch the first two rounds; with four early picks, Miami is in play for almost anyone, so I’ve read about more players than most...
You would think most would be vaccinated soon, since eligibility is now opened up.
Where’s he being projected to be drafted?
Interesting. I think you’re the first person I’ve read that’s not impressed with Harris. Only time will tell, but if they don’t select him or...
Saw much more of Harris and Etienne due to their teams getting more TV time. Why do you like him more than those two?
I suspect that Williams is the only one of the three to still be on the board at #36.
I would say this deal gets serious consideration if Chase and Pitts get drafted by #6. Otherwise, I can’t see it happening, unless Dallas makes...
If Jerry is that “obsessed” with Pitts, maybe they do add a 2022 second rounder to sweeten the deal. That might be tough to resist. It also...
Would you swap #6 for #10 and #44? That takes Pitts and Chase off the board. They’d probably still have a shot at Smith or Waddle. I would...
With a healthy Prescott, that offense could average 40 a game with Pitts added to the mix.
If Bill O’Brien had been hired by the Lions, I’d say you might be on to something, lol. I don’t think Dan Campbell wants to do us a solid, however.
The Texans’ organization is a disaster right now; I can’t believe they got any free agents to sign there.
While it would be spectacular to land Pitts, Smith and Harris, I can’t see Detroit accepting a trade that leaves them with no pick in the first...
Stop thinking of Pitts as a traditional TE; he is athletic enough to line up anywhere. If the FO see him as the best “receiver “ in the draft,...
Atlanta is now in the most intriguing position at #4. CBS is claiming they’re open to dealing the pick and trading down, but of course they are...
Every time I start to worry about his size, I think back to what he did to Ohio State’s defense in the championship game. Had he not run into a...
Just be thankful that we didn’t trade a boatload of picks (and possibly players) for this guy.
Let’s look at this from a different angle - which of these 4 would help/complement Tua the most? (Hopefully this is how the brain trust is...
Given his speed and athleticism, should he even be labeled a TE?
My preference is the exact order you listed them, with the only difference being Smith and Waddle are even in my opinion.
Exactly. He’s more WR than TE. The downside to that is, if you’re putting him out there with Gesicki, your OL better be really good,...
Yeah - he must be in really bad shape (or completely unwilling to listen) for them to cut bait so quickly.
I agree with one point Hyde made - stay away from Clowney. Overrated as well as overpaid is a bad combination.
Surprised some of those guys are still on the roster, to be honest.
I still cringe when I think about Wannstedt in Miami. He crippled this franchise for years, even after he was gone. The worst part was that we...
I wouldn’t want anyone off that list. Fitz or Alex Smith would both be better options.
Let’s hope there is a full off-season.
One more win? Sure.
Making through the AFC playoffs? Nope.
I don’t think any quarterback would have had us contending for a championship this year with the receiving corps available to them, especially...
Surprised they didn’t just wait until after the Super Bowl to hire Bienemy - unless he was lukewarm on the job given they added him to the...
I loved what TO had to say about Tua. Hopefully after another year to heal as well as having a full off-season of preparation will enable him to...
He said he’ll weigh in at Alabama’s pro day. I guess we’ll find out then what he really weighs. All I can say is that he made Ohio State’s...
The early part of the offseason is going to have an impact on where some of this year’s quarterbacks are taken. Where Watson, Stafford and (dare...
Well, one out of two.....
But does he want to work with the “run first” mentality of Pete Carroll? Working with a young qb and a bunch of shiny new toys (from the draft)...
Brett Favre thinks Jacksonville should take Smith over Lawrence because “he’s the next Moss or Rice” and Quinnen Williams wants the Jets to take...
Gotta be Dorsey that they’re waiting for, then
I can’t wait for free agency and the draft so some actual things can happen instead of the endless speculation
That report from Rotoworld is quoting Armando Salguero, so take that for what it’s worth as far as knowing the mind of Deshaun Watson.
I agree, from the Jets’ perspective - I was saying that from Houston’s point of view, the Jets probably have the most enticing supply of picks....
Colts now players in the QB market. Don’t know if they could offer enough to move up to #3, though
“Expected more from #5 overall”, I’ll give you that.
But “disgusting piece of trash” seems more suited to the Rae Carruths...
Houston may want to partner with the Jets since they have 4 firsts over the next 2 drafts, but like Key said - why would Watson want to go there?
The NY Post has Jets fans in a frenzy because Watson apparently “liked” their back cover which had his picture and the caption “Wat-ever It...
As much as I don’t want Miami to give up too much for Watson, I really don’t want to see him in a Jets uniform.
I hate the rest of the AFC East teams too much to ever root for them. I would probably rank my rooting interest this way:
Tony Elliot is reportedly staying at Clemson, and the 49ers are rumored to be making McDaniel their OC.
Vegas has Miami with the best odds of being Watson’s home for next season.
It does sound like things are deteriorating in Houston. Unless they hit a home run with their HC selection, Watson may try to force his way out...
I was trying to clarify Alex’ confusion on Striking’s response to The Guy, lol. The Guy was talking about “any team” being willing to start a...
If the rebuild takes 3 years, Watson will be 28 and nearing the end of his contract.
If recent history is any indicator, then the Jets will find a way to mess up this pick. They already managed to play themselves out of the first...
Pretty bush league to throw your (rookie) teammate under the bus like that, IMO. Im sure Flores is PO’d.
Does Armando realize there are 1 or 2 new coaches on the staff from 11 years ago?
Trade back 2-3 spots, then draft Smith or Chase. Add Pitts or Waddle at 18, Harris at 35.
I always take individual lineman grades with a bit of a grain of salt. The oline, more than any other position in football, plays as a unit as...
Almost hoping he doesn’t play in the championship; that might enhance the possibility of a slide to #18. I was just talking about this scenario...
Another TD called back on a penalty. Even refs in other games are against the Dolphins.
If the Titans score, they better not leave any time in the clock for the Texans
Tennessee’s defense really trying to give this game away
Jax just picked off Rivers
Dear God, no.
Flores and Grier are not getting fired, nor should they be. An argument can certainly be made for parting ways from Gailey; I’m not sure why he...
If Smith has another game in the championship like he did last night, he may leapfrog Chase and be the first WR taken.
Would love to see...
I think we could end up with 2 of the top receivers in the first round (Chase with first pick and Waddle/Pitts later) and then pick up Harris or...
If the draft order stays unchanged, then the Jets are, oddly enough, the keys to the top half of the draft. If they believe in Darnold, then you...
Jets and Colts falling apart...
What a send off that would be for one of the most likable and popular guys to wear the aqua and orange (somehow it feels like he’s been here much...
Come on Sanders!!!
That PI call looks worse every time they show it
No off-season, no preseason, and 8 games is not almost a full season.
What a joke
Time for pick x by X
Doesn’t help when you run into your own lineman, either
Well, that was a terrible call on 3rd and short
Yes, it has.
PS. Don’t forget the refs, especially when we play the Patriots.
The thought of children in the hospital for any reason, at any time, is sad enough, but especially around the holidays. Major props to Parker...
Coming off injury or not, I don’t see Waddle making it out of the first round. I’m still leaning towards WR with the first pick (if we can get...
After last night’s game, if Miami drafted him and Harris with their first 2 picks, it would be an A+ draft right out of the gate. (I would have...
And the staggering number of injuries to key players.
Would rather see the 4th and 10 from the 25 option as has been presented elsewhere.
Parker, Grant, Jackson in game, Roberts and Van Noy pre game.
McCain went out for a few plays and Mahoney and Hill promptly burned his...
“The weapons matter”
Hope Grier is paying attention.
Now Grant is hurt, too? Unbelievable.
That was holding on KC also
O line needs to stay home
Let’s answer with a score here
Way to take advantage of the short field
30 yard sack!!!
Nantz with the jinx
Roberts and Van Noy out today
I doubt Sewell gets past the Bengals after the beating Burrow took this year.
Why do you say that? Do you think they are done evaluating him?
And that’s why next year’s first pick should be spent on one of the elite receivers in the draft, possibly even one Tua has played with before....
For all the reasons listed above, and because Denver drafted Terrell Davis and Miami didn’t.
Looks like the Houston pick is about to drop a couple more spots.
Miami loses and Houston wins. Rough day....
That sucks for the kid. Their o-line is putrid.
2020, the year that keeps on taking. Third member of the ‘72 team gone this year.
Wouldn't mind seeing a reunion for Tua with Najee Harris or Travis Etienne in the second round.
I don’t see why we can’t have both - playoffs AND the pick.
Super Bowl VIII. I was 7, so I liked football but was in the beginning stage of fandom. I asked my dad who was playing, and he told me....
Did he just insist on giving up the game ball to coach? Man, you just gotta love this kid.
I know a lot of you are in the same boat as me,...
Would you take Lawrence regardless of how Tua does (discarding the extremes of terrible and awesome), or welcome the bounty of picks if Tua shows...
If Houston loses to Jax this week, Watson might very well be done. On the other side, the Jaguars might be in full tank mode themselves.
I just wish the game was on here in Philly. Stuck with Ravens/Steelers and GB/Minn.
If Miami would have drafted Terrell Davis instead of Denver, it would have been Marino retiring with (at least) two rings and the overrated Elway...
You can’t help but like this kid - I really hope he’s the qb/leader we’ve been waiting for for what seems like an eternity.
Fitz is the...
He could always change his mind and go back for his senior year rather than be a a Jet.
Nah, just half the state - Giants fans are hoping he stays, because he’s keeping the back pages of the papers focused on the Jets and not their...
While it is only week 5, the Jets look like the worst team in the league. Best chance for that to change is they fire Gase and the team rallies...
Buffalo is a legit playoff team. Too early to tell with Cam and the Patsies.
It’s very clear that Miami needed a full camp and preseason,...
According to CBS Sports, Ballage failed his physical and the trade is off.
So that would make it the #1, #1?
I saw that - was curious if it was some “special edition” jersey that’s almost, but not quite the real thing
Is the “first round pick” Tua jersey on the NFL fan shop a real jersey, or a quick cash grab?
Another kid to root for.
If this draft class can be as good on the field as they are off of it, we are going to be in great shape.
Great read. Really pulling for the kid.
Who drafts a long snapper?
PS. Lots of talent still out there. This second round will be more like a 1A when all is said and done.
From Pete Prisco on CBS:
30. Dolphins, CB Noah Igbinoghene, Auburn
Grade: A+. The captain of my Better-Than-Team. I think this pick is...
Well, it’s past my bedtime. Goodnight, all.
Both top safeties we’re still there - would’ve made for a stellar backfield
Why a cb?
Thought the ‘Boys would go defense
Forgot about the Buckner trade - makes much more sense now.
So, does Lamb fall to #18?
Was DL really a need for SF?
So ridiculous accuracy is something I don’t want from my qb?
Now the important question: what number does he wear in Miami?
I don’t think they show the phone call before the pick is announced so they don’t give it away
This is the spot I thought other teams might trade into
Burrow seems like such a great kid. Wish he could have been a Fin...
I thought so, too - but it actually flew by. Four hours to go!!
Watching at home by myself with a beer, hoping the Dolphins don’t Dolphin.
25 hours can’t go by fast enough.
I’d see if they would bite on a third round pick. For a 27 year old all-pro guard? Sign me up.
A CBS mock today (Jon Jones) had us taking Thomas, McKinney and Love in the first round. They’re all just throwing darts at this point, hoping...
Draft one late first or early second. Send #70 to NE for Joe Thuney. Miami is immediately a better team.
Oh, I’m not a fan of the idea, unless they truly believe in Rosen. Then the plan makes more sense, minus the Winston signing, of course. You’d...
I had a coworker suggest this scenario: that they traded down from #5 with one of the teams with 2 first round picks, drafted 2 of the stud OTs,...
So far, so good:
Would love to see the Fins grab him in the second round. While RB isn’t the offensive focal point that it once was, you certainly can’t win with...
If both are available at 5 (which is admittedly unlikely), then Tua had better be the choice.
You just made my day. All the best to her for continued health and much happiness.
I’m good with this, depending on what we do with the o line in free agency.
This draft would transform our defense, but I would rather draft a long snapper than Fromm. He is the last qb in this draft I would take.
He won’t be playing much, if at all next year anyway. Plenty of time to upgrade the o-line.
This. James was a great player, but one of the best of the best? Nope.
After the Senior Bowl, Anae will probably not be around in the fourth round. Would be great value with him and Duvernay in that round if that...
Miami can snag a running back in the draft, either at 26 or in the second, depending on when/if the positional run starts. I would spend on the...
Miami stays at #5, and someone (the Chargers, maybe) moves up to #3 and takes Tua?
4. Giants go OL
CBS is reporting Josh Boyer is getting promoted to DC.
This is the key piece of information in the entire situation, imo. If it holds true, then the risk is too high, especially at #5. To compound...
Surprised they would announce before Tua, unless they know what he’s going to do.
He exceeded expectations by light years. I remember watching the (much hyped) LSU-Alabama game last year and thinking he was their Achilles...
After the season Burrow had, and after what he did to Oklahoma, there’s no way even the Bengals would trade that pick.
PS. After blowing a 16-0...
The voters will have a tough time - from that list, I could easily vote in 5 just from the defensive side of the ball. Polamalu is a lock, so...
On the subject of Tua, what does everyone think he’s going to do on Monday? I think it makes more sense for him to declare, but who knows what...
Isn’t there some question about him and Espensa returning to school?
Chiefs up by 10
Wilson actually caught one!
Wow. They reversed a call against the Pats. Hell must have frozen over.
How likely is it that Swift is still there at#62?
Justin Fields is likely to come out next year as well. Haven’t seen OSU that much this year, but his numbers are certainly impressive....
If it wasn’t for Lincoln Riley, nobody would be talking about Jalen Hurts.
No thanks. He’s a running back with an arm that got beaten out by Tua when he was a freshman.
Jets hang on and win!
Aaaand there goes the Jets’ lead.
If Ohio State wins the championship, he’ll turn pro. If not, maybe there’s a reason to stay in school.
Falcons just beat the Niners, lol.
Agree 100%. Can’t root for a loss to the Jests no matter the stakes.
Especially since Herbert, Fromm and Hurts have been underwhelming of late.
Who said anything about kicking him out of the league? Let him fade away into obscurity , instead of promoting/celebrating a known scumbag. The...
I signed it, because that POS and his cronies get no forgiveness from me.
He’s not entirely wrong. Some of the things that were said were vicious and reprehensible, and poorly researched in most cases. I lost respect...
I live just outside of Philly, so this is glorious! I have been having a blast all morning!
Bengals and Skins doing their part so far.
Bungles are doing their part to help by taking Jests to the woodshed, lol. We’re not out of the #1 pick just yet.
At this point in the season, only Burrow has shown enough to be a top 5 pick. IMO, several members of the (preseason) vaunted class of qbs would...
We have the makings of a pretty solid team....on injured reserve. Whether they all belong there, only the Dolphins brass knows.
Burrow will be the #1 pick after this weekend’s game.
Bucs, Browns, Falcons (!), and Jests all won. So far, so good...Now Miami has to not screw it up by winning, lol
After last night, Chargers might be more serious about drafting a qb...Rivers made the Raiders D look pretty good
Isn’t Greenie a Jets fan? He’s just just picking up the anti-Fin ESPN bias mantle from Berman the Bills fan. Nothing new here.
He’s a Seahawk
The cellar dwellers will get swept this week. Miami might have the best chance to win out of the bunch.
Have to add the Falcons to “the field”, as they are in a nosedive, plus Ryan got hurt today.
And Hall may slip out of the first round depending on how he recovers from that ankle injury.
Neither does anyone in Miami.
With apologies to Roberto Duran, Drake is the new “Manos de Piedra”
To add to the misery, the Texans just won in KC.
Don’t know what happened in Baton Rouge in the off-season, but Burrow has looked like a different QB this season. He was very unimpressive last...
I doubt we can score against the Bills - that defense is for real. They forced Brady into one of the worst games of his career. Those are 2...
And for the lone Dolphins highlight of the day, the Texans just lost.
And after a 9 minute drive, the offense does nothing and puts a tired D back on the field. Here comes the collapse.
There are more truly bad teams than usual this year, it seems. Only the Dolphins could pick a year to tank and have serious competition for the...
Weren’t the Cowboys trying to trade Taco for Minkah? Now Miami got him and a first round pick - not too shabby on Grier’s part, imo.
I so badly want to believe, but so many years of frustration are hard to overcome....
Jim Caldwell would have been a big help to Flores in this situation, imo.
If there had been some recent successes, losing now would be much easier to take. We as Dolphin fans have had to endure decades of suckitude and...
We need to root for Houston to fall apart, too - maybe we can end up with both picks in the top 5.
If I had Adam Sandler’s remote from Click,...
The allure of there always being great seats available, you mean?
Another sh***y day to be a Dolphins fan.
Both Harbaughs might be out of a job after this season if things continue they way they are at Ohio State today.
First thing (among many) that needs to happen is Gase needs to turn over the play calling and be the head coach. It's painfully obvious he can't...
If Hue Jackson sticks with Gyros Taylor and ignores the #1 overall pick, he will be the favorite for first coach fired this year.
James or Edmunds now
And there's the Cardinals move
Same here. I live in the Philly burbs, and Eagles fans (and there are lots more of them these days) are insufferable. I will never actually root...
If the part about him missing Pittsburgh and it being a mistake that he left, then I would be happy with nothing less than his release. If you...
Shouldn't have to worry about him much longer - sounds like he's going to be Denver's new HC.
That's true for all Dolphins fans. Another year, more heartache, aggravation and frustration. Ross is the one who needs to be accountable for...
This is quite possibly the most putrid offense I've ever seen.
