NFL (since 2016)
Free agency started last night and was pretty crazy some huge money being spent.

Osweiler getting £18m a year for the Texans, leaving the Broncos without a QB,

Giants have spent a fortune on good but not great players, Oliver Vernon has more guaranteed money than JJ Watt.

lots more deals but cant be bothered to list them all.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I certainly agree.

It was a few years later than I found the Saints on a high school jazz band trip and he became one of the Dirty Birds.

But shamefully, as a kid there was nothing more late 80s/early 90s cool than stuff like this.

I liked Bo Jackson but Neon Deion got on my nerves with his showboating into the end zone, have a bit of respect and take a look at one of the best maybe even THE best RBs of all time, Barry Sanders

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Neon Deion Sanders also played a lot of baseball.

Him and Bo were right in the era of me being a kid and saving my money to buy Sports Illustrated every week I could. So I can remember them being on multiple covers.

Yes, Elway had a bullet of an arm

I reckon Michael Jordan could have made it in the NFL, possibly as a WR

So yeah just the one summer

He's no Bo Jackson. Hah.

Takashi Miike 4:53 Mon Oct 26

He was drafted and played the summer in the Yankees' farm system.

Outfielder I believe.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
bit harsh not including elway who probably had the best arm of the lot and had offers from pro baseball teams coming out of college

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Interesting topic amongst the commentators in last night's Saints game (for me at least).

Say what you want about baseball but apparently it produces NFL quarterbacks. Especially at the shortstop position.

In no particular order:

Garoppolo
Mahomes
Rodgers
Brees
Wilson
Roethlisberger
Matt Ryan
Stafford
Goff
Murray

and every Pro Football Hall of Fame QB since sometime in the '70s – other than Terry Bradshaw and Jim Kelly – so people like Joe Montana, Brett Favre, Dan Marino, Fran Tarkenton, Dan Fouts, Warren Moon, Troy Aikman, Kurt Warner and Peyton Manning

all played shortstop at a competitive level.

Probably why I never made it as NFL QB (or lineman). I hated baseball (and could not throw my way out of a wet paper bag.)

Re: NFL (since 2016)
The Cowgirls got so many picks and players out of the Walker deal that it feels like they're still drafting off the back of it!

It felt like I was still reading about fresh Walker-related drafts and picks years later. It's like the Carrick deal...

Far Cough 3:54 Mon Oct 26
Re: NFL (since 2016)
Cowgirls/Vikes-type trade.


What a fucking trade that was, I bet the cowboys were laughing their Texas size arses off

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Yep thought we’d closed out against the Cards, but they came back well. Lot of mistakes on both sides late on.

Lockett’s ability to find space and to get his feet grounded is uncanny. He’s not that tall, not phenomenally quick, and not really a unit - and yet his figures are right up there.

That DK Metcalf chase back, as falace said below, was stunning.

ironsofcanada 3:07 Mon Oct 26
Re: NFL (since 2016)
Was a good game for me as I had Lockett in fantasy.

(Made up for the fact that I followed most of the media and picked the wrong Mostert backup to start.)

Wilson had an uncharacteristic stinker in the 4th quarter and OT.

I'll forgive him it this once given the number of times he's won us a game when we've been playing shit

Re: NFL (since 2016)
The falcons have lost 3 games already this season where at one point in the game they had over 98% probability to win.

I went to bed last night when the seahawks went up by 10 midway through the 4th quarter! Thought the game was over!

Re: NFL (since 2016)
This is my worst fantasy year for injuries by far - five of the six running backs I've started so far have gone down during games plus Kenyan Drake has been carted off twice!

I've got a second fantasy team on the go that's just the same, bizarrely. That one also has Beckham jr in it, so not just RB's. Six straight fantasy defeats in that one, so I know how the Jets feel now...

Re: NFL (since 2016)
That said, I genuinely don't want him to go mid-season now. We might as well just tank it to 0-16 and have the option of taking Lawrence in the draft - or of asking a team to masively over-pay to get Lawrence and land some Cowgirls/Vikes-type trade.

We've already got quite a few first and second round picks in the tank. At this rate, we might end up with the entire first round draft - and we'd still fuck it up. It's become comical.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Final word from me on the Jets this week - I won't bang on about it (!) - Gase has fallen so far that he didn't even call the offensive plays on Sunday.

He was appointed for his alleged "genius" (hahahahaha!) as an offensive mind! Got described as such when he got the job because he knows absolutely nothing about the defensive side of the game.

(I can barely go on without laughing...)

On Sunday, he even gave up the pretence that he knows anything about offence. So Dowell Loggains (OC) called the plays when we had the ball. All 5ft 5" of him.

From defensive "genius" to not even leading his own offence ahead of a man who can barely see above his clipboard. Only the Jets could do this as a franchise now that the Non-Skin, Skins have showed glimmers of improvement.
