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.

Friendly reminder to all that the Yank' clocks dont go back for another couple of weeks so all NFL games will be on an hour earlier than normal this weekend.

Met Jerry Rice a few years back and he still looked fit as a fiddle.

Most records in sport are there to be shot at, but his are literally impossible to ever chase down, as they are fucking ridiculous.

The seasons when we had him and Terrell Owens with Steve Young throwing them the ball were marvellous.

I'm looking at the receivers one now:

Jerry Rice, Michael Irvin, Steve Largent, and Steve Smith Sr.

of course, I remember him well. Ed Reed was another who was good enough to have been invited

Mike, the Vikings had a very good DB in Joey Browner, don't know if you have heard of him?

Re: NFL (since 2016)
best leader I've seen on a defence other than singletary. our sean taylor would have got close to that level if he hadn't been killed. deion's a bit marmite for me but some of his celebrations were funny when scoring a td :.)

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Looking into the Sanders move it does seem like a very good half season rental option.

Trade away what is likely a low 4th and swap it with what will be a high 5th and then you trade away your 3rd round pick but will more than likely get a 3rd round compensatory pick if/when he moves on when his contract runs out at the end of the season.

Essentially gave up nothing but moving down a few spots in the draft

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I'd say the Patsies got the best of those deals with Sanu - he's an almost perfect fit for them. A second rounder is OK for Sanu and Belichick always picks up good quality in rounds three, four and five of the draft anyway.

Sanders is a good pick-up for the 49ers. His age might be an issue, but given the start San Francisco have had this season, he could keep them in "win now" mode.

Two good deals, those.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Saw the Patriots also acquired bethel who for some reason the ravens cut.

Harbaugh was obviously very unhappy they released him and called him "the best special teams player in the league" Pats probably now have the best 2 special teamers with Matthew slater being a borderline hall of fame level player if people ever do get in on special teams contributions alone.

seems they cut him so they would get some sort of compensatory pick but i have no idea how that system works.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I actually think both teams have done pretty good business with Sanu and Sanders, with both being the exact positions that needed strengthening.

People are probably basing their Sanders valuation on the fact that he seems better at nicking a TD, though I've always thought Sanu was constantly popping up with quality plays to get his team up into the redzone.

Not exactly a hard choice between Sanders and Pettis for us as the main man.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Sounds like tge niners were in for sanu too, i did think a 2nd round pick might have been a bit high but i guess its wgat the niners couldnt match,

He's got 2 years left on his deal and is younger than sanders, and cheaper but still seeing lots on twitter that sanders should have commanded a higher draft capital than sanu

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Niners give up a 3rd and 4th for Emanuel Sanders and Denvers 5th rounder.

At 32 he wont cost a fortune to extend. Niners need to preserve cap space to resign free agents next year.

Next years draft we will have a 1st round two 5th's and a 6 and 7th rounder. Niners adding pieces without mortgaging the future. We should be able to sign Buckner and Armstead next year and a few others.

2. Elway

Obviously i wan't around for a lot of the old greats so most of my opinions are based on history, old film and people's opinions who i respect.

Could obviously include people like Unitas, Starr or Otto Graham in there but i don't even think those guys were playing the same sport back then compared to how it is now.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Agree to disagree.

He is top 5 forbme especially , if they can do it again. Without the natural gifts of some others, garbage defences around him, natural disasters but never dipped bellow 7 wins. Which is saying something for the Saints.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Crystal's top five...

1. Joe Namath.
2. Broadway Joe.
3. That "guarantee" bloke from 1969.
4. The real No. 12 (in Green and White).
5. Tom Brady.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Brees' is obviously very very good, but i dont put him in the same bracket as the true greats of all time, he has a lot of yards throwing in the dome but has always been a bit shaky when playing on the road.

Also the saints have had quite a number of seasons where they have gone like 8-8, 7-9 etc which you just never see for the truly great QBs.

Top 10 id say but doesnt approach my top 5
