Cards, I think it was right before they shipped him out and they knew he was going. It was like $25.

And AJ deserves to be either tied for 1 or a close 2nd, also am I the only one who doesn't get the Julio joke...?

Also the part implying that Kapernackernick is a particularly good passer.

What? Didn't you hear Jaws say that he might be the greatest QB of all time? It's unpossible that he might not be that great of a passer.

Imagine what Gruden would say

Gruden is on the Russell Wilson train.

Gruden is on the everybody train. Show him a picture of LP Ladouceur and he'll jizz his pants.


Didn't gruden say he'd give up first round picks to get Matt Flynn?

I thought it was a blow against rookie salaries, but then I didn't know this happened:
7/28/2011: Signed a four-year, $16.183 million contract. The deal is fully guaranteed, including a $10.27 million signing bonus. 2013: $1,846,250, 2014: $2,581,875, 2015: Free Agent

sooo not even going to have to perform for a contract this year.

anyone else get it?

Cards or Ravens?

Also, they probably hit the Fitzgerald nail on right on the head.


I got a very old cardinals one. Got it thanksgiving 2003. It's all pealed away and shiat and has become a night shirt.

Cousins may be good in the long run from what I remember he was good in college but first round picks? What an idiot, at best a 3rd rounder for someone so unproven.

I think you're an SEC fan, but did you follow any Big 10 or at least watch the 2012 (2011 season) UGA MSU game?  He made them a team that could beat Georgia in a bowl game, and without him they forgot that the endzone is by the scoreboard (31 pts/game fell to 20 pts/game, and yes they still had le'veon bell after he left).  Look up his Big ten speech on youtube to see that he is a well spoken leader.

Dammit, i agree with this. Was mildly shocked to see him in the top 10 at all along with his former teammate Fitz at #2.  I think Fitz should be around #5, ahead of Welker behind Green.  He was a huge deal in a keeper league when i had both him and Fitz and then went to be WR1 for Flacco.  I never thought he got enough credit at Arizona.

I said he was good in college geez big 10 people!

Still that was a crappy UGA team and if Willie was still coaching the defense then every QB looked like heisman trophy winners. God Willie was a terrible coach, its one of richts biggest flaws, too forgiving of shiatty performances.

I was just letting you know you were right, but more than you can imagine.  MSU was beat in that game too, UGA let them creep back in with disbelief that the Spartans didn't let Big Ten bowl game self fulfilling prophecy do themselves in.

From the little time I've seen Cousins play in the NFL, I think he has looked really good.  ESPN keeps bringing up his 3-10 performance when he filled in for RG3 during the playoffs which is completely out of context.  The redskins were losing, Seattle's d is one of the best, and other players constantly set back the O in down and distance. Easily 4 of those incompletions were from Seattle sending 7 and the deadskin line not being covered by qb mobility.

Not defending Gruden btw.  That guy loves lamp.

Yeah, that was Grantham's first year with his guys and the learning curve was bad, I remember uga going ahead early then screwing around like Richt always does. Give that man a 10 point lead and he acts like the game is over, I wished he would have listened to Bowden more and learned to stomp teams when he was ahead. This is painful but its the one thing I like about Spurrier, he keeps whipping that pony till its dead, still he's an arrogant ass and I'm sure he's dirty but has just never got caught.

I disagree. There are about 20 starting caliber QBs in a 32 team league. Why do you think the Chiefs paid so much for Cassel? Based on currency of the league and value if he succeeds, I would say depending on where you're drafting, based on his limited performance, he's easily worth a late first round (Chris Ponder)/early second round pick (Tarvaris Jackson)...

I don't know,  he's not better than a third round (Wilson) and definitely not better than a sixth rounder (Brady).

This has turned into a QB thread, and that's fine, but the WR list is pretty good. I wouldn't include Boldin or Welker though, but add Demaryius Thomas and Roddy White.
 
2013-08-23 12:01:30 AM  
6. Wes Welker: All he has to do is connect with Peyton Manning for a touchdown against the Patriots in Foxborough so we can see Tom Brady's reaction. That's it. That's all we care about.

After being denied my Brady/Manning AFC title matchup last season, maximum this.
 
2013-08-23 04:14:36 AM  
3. Andre Johnson: Johnson is once again expected to have an outstanding season that ultimately means nothing

2. Larry Fitzgerald: Following his underwhelming 2012 season, Fitzgerald is hoping to come back in a big way thanks to the Cardinals' addition of ... Carson Palmer? Oh, man, he's farked

1. Calvin Johnson: With his size, speed, and tremendous athleticism, Lions fans can expect Johnson to carry their team tantalizingly close to the playoffs this year


All three were lulz.

Yes and here's the problem, do you know he's a starting NFL QB? There is no way to know for sure since he has not had an extensive sample to pull from in his short time. Cassel was a starter for a full year and looked impressive so that argument is not valid, Flynn had 2-4 starts in GB that looked decent to great.

There is no reason to give up a first rounder for someone so unproven at this time.

You guys are missing the point. Never miss out on an opportunity to take a pot shot at Flacco.  That's all the main reason why Boldin is listed, not his on the field abilities.

There are no proven starters who have not started. But you have to take someone in the first round. I'd rather take a guy who's seen some NFL action and done well than the 4th best QB in a college draft. Fact: Cousins has played better in the NFL than any QB in college right now. That might sound stupid, but it's true. Since there's no guarantee a 1st rounder will pan out, I'd rather use it on someone I at least know can complete a pass down the field in the NFL. I'd give any 1st rounder past 15 for him.

That's not the argument, its about trading away picks for an unproven and that's plural because most teams will want more than one pick. That is how a hot commodity works, when Atlanta got rid of schaub they got back 2-3 picks. It worked OK for the Texans but when someone has 48PA then its a huge gamble.

Eh... Drafting is a huge gamble and you're doing that with 0PA. You're either using draft picks on an unproven commodity or trading them FOR an unproven commodity. I don't really see a difference, but I thought the Schaub trade was a good one. I thought KC got fleeced for Cassel, but a lot of people thought his play for one season earned him that. I don't think we'll agree on this, which is fine.
