Re: Todd Haley GONE

Not sure how Haley is the scapegoat here. If the reports about his relationship with Ben are true, and if it's true Ben contemplated retirement because of Haley, then by all means, good riddance (from a Steelers' fan perspective). Three more years of Ben in a Super Bowl window, potentially, or Todd ...

Re: commissioner making drastic structural changes

The league I am in (not pure dynasty, but heavy emphasis on keepers) has a rule on rules changes. We have an established period to submit rules changes, and then a period of voting. Simply put, if you want to change a rule, you have to submit it during the period of time to do so. If not, tough luck...

Re: Juju worth a late 1st?

I don't remember much about Coates' short run, but what strikes me about Juju is his use in all aspects of the passing game: deep, middle and the WR screen game. If he was just putting up yards and scores on big plays, I would be more skeptical. And yes, he had the 97 yard score but still put up ano...

Re: Health of the NFL

I can't sleep so here goes: 1. Too many games. Football Sundays used to be such an event because of the limited quantity of games. The Thursday games have cheapened Sunday, and the ratings attest. The Dolphins are featured in three straight primetime game... 2. The league has built an unsustainable ...

Re: Flyer WR Poll

Jeffery's numbers so far this year suggest to me a more valuable real life player than a fantasy player. In other words, he is taking the #1 cornerback and safety attention and opening up the field. I'm curious how much of Agholor's success is from this factor. And so I'm thinking that even if Jeffe...

Re: Week 9 Discussion

It's interesting the different standards that fighting has across sports. In baseball, throwing at batters was (not so much anymore) honored. Fighting was exciting. Hockey, the talking points are obvious. I can't recall players in these sports described as thugs. Football players play a violent and ...

Re: A (likely wrong) theory about the 1st round WR's from recent draft classes

In this line of thinking, who are some WR you would want to invest or be invested in, among younger less established talent? Kupp has been mentioned and Juju comes to mind for me. Any insight would be appreciated!

Re: Mack Hollins or Curtis Samuel?

I like Hollins. He may never be a WR1, but I think he's definitely at WR2 potential. If the Eagles keep Jeffery next year, I think Hollins could really benefit with Jeffery taking the attention of the #1 cornerback, as has happened with Agholor this year. The other attribute I like it that Hollins h...

Re: Let’s talk... Juju

If Ben retires after this year, the Steelers just don't strike me as the type of team that is going to let the situation fester. Whether it be trading up in the draft or going for an available QB like a Garropolo or an Alex Smith, I feel like they are going to aggressively address the situation. As ...

Re: Worried about... Devonta Freeman edition!

I think the issue is much more about usage than Devonta himself. Against New England, he averaged six yards per carry, but with only 12 carries, he was not a focal point in the offense. It was like Super Bowl redux. Had Sark not called the bizarre jet sweep to Gabriel on 4th and goal from the 1, he ...

Re: CHI WRs to own?

Glennon looks truly awful, so I have to wonder if Trubisky is going to make an appearance sooner rather than later - not because he should, necessarily, but because John Fox is going to be desperate for his own job. Assuming the cost isn't too much, Gentry (long-term) and Wheaton (short-term) seem l...

Re: C. Meredith or K. White

Kevin White remains a great unknown unfortunately, even beyond injury concerns. Looking at Meredith's numbers from last year, I'm intrigued by the disparity of his numbers with Cutler and with Hoyer/Barkley. Meredith was a 2nd-teamer at the start of the year, and getting a lot of his reps (I'm assum...
