    Eh. How many players are usually there, like 30 out of 300 draft picks? Personally I could do without all the theatrics. Goodell could come out and announce the first round picks on an empty sound stage and that would be fine.

    With no crowd to boo the hell outta Goodell, what's the point of televising the draft?

    Seems like bullshit given that the Niners GM himself was quoted as saying he asked about Brady and the result was this:

    "I figured, 'What the heck, you gotta take your shot, right? You can't score if you don't shoot.' I had to summon up the courage and Bill [Belichick] laughed at me and basically hung up on me. But hey, I took my shot."

    He's coming back to New England...

    Brian Hoyer is returning to the Patriots.

    Great signing, potentially a game changer in the AFC.

    I thought he was the number 2 QB anyway.

    You're right, it's likely Stidham's job to lose with Hoyer as backup. But who knows what will happen with Stidham this year. He could suck. He could get hurt. There's a fair chance Hoyer gets some starts.

    My comment was sarcastic in nature but there's truth to every joke. Hoyer starting in the AFC title game? I could see it!

    Expectations are low for this team right now. Rebuild year is the word around town and I can't disagree at this moment but there's a lot of team building left to go.

    big loss for the cowboys although I couldn't tell you how good or average he was last season. his retirement note indicated he didn't get back to his top level after missing 2018 due to his Guillain–Barré syndrome diagnosis. 7 years, $39 million earned. hopefully he has a nice post-football life.

    As for this new Rams logo. Yes I think it's bland and lame, but it also reminds me too much of the Chargers colors. I'm sure it's not the exact same blue but for 2 teams that share the same stadium to have such similar colors seems wrong to me. the chargers moving cities out of LA (which I hope will happen) will be one franchise move that we can all get behind. what a dumb decision.

    I don't really see a comparison with the blue. This blue is more of a median in shade compared to what the Chargers use. In addition, no one gives a crap about the Chargers lol. The actual Rams logo doesn't seem terrible. The outright full name and color structure one (bottom left) is good.

    He made a noticeable difference across the board: active before the issue, as an absent player, and returning. They had a strong line and he was a major influence towards that.

    the ram is good. the LA with the horn around it looks like a logo for Good Morning Los Angeles, a local morning show from 2005 I just made up. but yea honestly people are probably shitting on it too much. we didn't see the jerseys/helmet yet right? that's all that mostly matters. color-wise though, I guess it's their switch from gold to yellow that is what brings it closer to the chargers colors. And I think I like the gold better. of course I'm confusing myself now, they might have already been on the yellow before this new logo. I'm picturing the navy/gold in my head but that might have been already gone. so perhaps what I'm saying about both teams wearing blue/yellow as their colors was already the case last year.

    So veteran QB starters (or potential starters) changing teams will include Cam (Dolphins? Chargers? Jags?), Brady (Bucs), Bridgewater (Panthers), Foles (Bears) and Winston (no idea). That will be fun, if we get to actually play the season.

    Cam will be 31 when the season starts, I could see him having another good season or two but he may also get hurt again and fade away fast. Still, if I'm a team like the Chargers or Dolphins I give him a shot. I just don't guarantee much money long term.

    Still don’t get why we would go after Cam when Fitz is more than capable of doing a job in the new season.

    So likely another scrub WR for the position. Hopefully for them, Lazard pans out.
    Good signing for the Jets if he can transition the end of last season into this season.
    Too little, too late for the Panthers to buy up for the position.

    Honestly I think the funchess signing is pretty good, especially if the rumors are true that the money is around vet minimum. His catch rate is low, but he was going against #1 CBs for a while and also had a very inaccurate QB throwing to him. In GB the ball will be where it needs to be and he'll likely be facing #2/3 CBs too with opposing D's having to focus attention on Adams. I basically see it as an upgrade to Graham (someone to help in redzone and on 3rd and short lol)

    I might have exaggerated by saying scrub, but I remain dubious in thinking he's going to be able to emerge as a legit WR2 for them. I imagine Lazard will do that to a degree and then Funchess is as a guy competing with MVS and Kumerow to be a random flavor of the week. If they're expecting big things from Funchess, I think they're in a world of trouble.

    That made me think about Jimmy Graham, and that doesn't necessarily match up because he was a scrub going into Green Bay and is still a scrub on the way out...while managing to still find another sucker to sign him. I guess he doesn't qualify for the "most part" category. It does match up in the sense that you would equal JG's touchdown total from last season lol.

    Yeah I think one of Kumerow/MVS takes a big step forward too. The draft pick probably won't be the #2 option early on (rookie WRs always develop slowly in GB due to Rodgers' trust issues it seems).

    But if Funchess is playing as like a third/fourth option, I think he'll be a pleasant surprise. Hoping Lazard continues to ascend too of course

    My guess is Kumerow, out of the two. MVS had enough rope in a variety of settings last season and he didn't really live up to the moments. That said, Kumerow, MVS, Funchess are probably looking at scraps (more like 4th or 5th options) in terms of targets/receptions or things really hit the fan. Adams, the rookie, Lazard, and Jones/Williams are the guys.

    It would be a best-case scenario for the passing attack, in a macro sense, if Lazard is able to step up early on as legit WR2 for the team. That would provide more space for Adams and then give more breathing room for the rookie to acclimate.

    So, apparently, Commissioner Rogerhas come out and said that not only will the draft go on, but anyone who criticizes that decision may be subject to discipline.


    That’s an...... interesting direction to go.

    The initial decision is fine. If anything, it favors the smarter organizations. The criticizing comment is stupid.

    Oh yeah I don’t mind them going forward. It honestly gives us a good distraction.


    It’s the second part that makes you go “wait....... what?”

    Yeah don’t see why he had to come out with that bit.
