    It's strange to be reading articles on how Miami did well and got the steal of the draft in Rosen. It's all on paper, but it's nice to be excited about the future for the first time in awhile.

    He'd be no worse than QB2 if he was in this draft. It's amazing how fast the shine wears off in some people's eyes. I'm not really familiar with the Dolphins' situation, coaching wise, but from the standpoint of acquiring talent, it was a good move. I'm rooting for the kid personally because I hate the way he's been treated. He's not a mindless football automaton, so we'll shit on him incessantly for not falling in line. I hope he's the next Dan Marino, only with Jay Cutler's fuck you attitude.


    Or at least not the next Chad Pennington, with Rex Grossman’s fuck it attitude.

    Sports Turd Steve Smith has a hot take.

    Goodness... Steve Smith just UNLOADED on Josh Rosen.

    Apparently, after Arizona drafted Murray with the number one pick, Josh Rosen basically unfollowed the team on social media.

    Can’t imagine why Josh Rosen would want to unfollow this

    Yeah. I can't imagine why, either.

    Anyway, this is what Rosen did yesterday.


    What a whiny ass titty baby!

    I think Miami did fairly well overall. Rosen by all rights had a decent rookie season compared to the other rookies. And i think he can be a better QB down the line than tanehill, and I will take that as a positive. I never thought tanehill was really good with the system we have. So I hope Rosen will evolve in a couple of years to a decent QB to keep us above a .500 season.

    as far as the rest of the draft, I am happy with the picks. I don't always agree with Miami's direction given management and such, but we got some really good linemen and the RBs are servicable as well, so overall I think we have a good mix that should really improve us. I mean the only one ding most people have been calling out was drafting Cox. And I think Charlie will fit fine in our running schemes.

    I'm more happy this year for the draft than the last couple. We'll see how training camps go this summer and preseason. While I'm not expecting a wild card this year, I am looking forward to some competitive games instead of just switching over to Packer games at my friend's house!

    Eric Dickerson has been trying to blame WSU coach Mike Leach for RB James Williams (represented by Dickerson) not being drafted. Claims Leach “talked him down” to teams.

    Couldn’t possibly be because the kid wasn’t good enough to spend a draft pick on and Dickerson was selling him a pig in a poke.

    Williams signed an undrafted free agent deal with the Chiefs

    Rosen was a steal. Top 10 2018 QB for a 2nd round pick? As long as he’s not permanently rattled from his first year.

    While next year has some great prospects, most will cost you serious draft capital.

    Barnwell got superduper nerdy with the deal as well to point out that not only is the upside potential huge, but monetarily it’s going to result in a lot of economic benefit for the Fins even if he’s a bench warmer

    This is from a Yahoo Sports article:
    Jerry Jones believes the Dallas Cowboys can win more than just a division title after making changes for the 2019 season.

    The Dallas owner expressed optimism on Wednesday that his team will be better than it was last year, despite winning the NFC East with a 10-6 record.

    They have altered their coaching staff, firing offensive coordinator Scott Linehan and promoting Kellen Moore, while strengthening their roster by trading for defensive end Robert Quinn.

    "Everything we were about was improving from where we were this year," Jones said, according to quotes in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

    "There is no reason. There is no tangible reason we shouldn't be expected to be better than we were last year."

    I think granpaw needs a group home.

    Local sports turds are already buying in.

    I think Jerry actually believes the Cowboys can go 16-0 and win the Super Bowl every year. Which is kind of admirable in a way until you remember that he is basically the reason the NFL is the untouchable monolith it currently is and realize he is actually kind of a sociopath for thinking like that.

    He's the guy that allowed Garrett to coach the team to three straight 8-8 seasons. He doesn't believe in anything more than convincing rubes to spend money on the team because they believe.

    Uh I can think of a tangible reason the Cowboys shouldn’t be expected to be better

    Their owner is a moron who thinks he’s a good GM and still can’t get over a series of perceived slights from 25 fucking years ago.

    The Cowboys will not be a championship team again until Jerrah is no longer meddling in football business.

    Baldwin and Chancellor cut by Seattle for failing physicals.

    Merely a formality because Chancellor was going to probably retire and I wouldn't be surprised if Baldwin does the same. Though I'm hearing that due to the timing, they still get some bonuses.

    Adam Gase is the new SUPERGENIUS for the J-E-T-S JETSJETSJETS.

    When I saw the thread title change, I thought "Really? Mike McCarthy? Transitioning to GM? Poor fucking Jets fans, haven't they suffered enough?"

    I saw the report of Maccagnan being fired a couple of days ago, and my first thought was the wrong MetLife Field GM got fired. How Maccagnan can get fired, and Gettelman can keep his job, just boggles my mind.

    Christian Hackenberg.

    The real puzzler is that he was allowed to stay on through the draft and free agency.

    Guess the Giants have a blueprint to fumble through if Daniel Jones is an inarguable bust after the 2020 season.

    Ahh, yes, Hackenberg. Yeah, that was a poor choice*. But Hackenberg got dumped a year ago next week. And Maccagnan was at least part of the team that put together what looks to be the best overall team I've seen from the Jets in quite a while.

    * I had to look up the date, and while I knew Hackenberg was with the Jets two years and was never given a snap in the regular season, and wasn't even the backup for most of his tenure there, I didn't think that would be the HIGHLIGHT of his career.
    - Oakland took him for three weeks and released him.
    - Philly took him for three weeks, put him in a preseason game, and released him two days later.
    - Spent just over 4 weeks on the Bengals practice squad.
    And that's when things went from bad to worse.
    - Started for the Memphis Express (AAL). Threw for 1 pick. Pulled in the fourth quarter for performance. Lost 26-0
    - Played the next week, scored a rushing TD, but nothing in the air. Lost 20-18
    - Played the following week, threw two picks, and was replaced by Zack Mettenberger at the half, who went and scored two TD's.

    That ends Hackenberg's career. Three regular season games, 3 losses, 3 Interceptions, 0 Pass TD's, a passer rating of 43.6 in a second-rate league.

    I know it's unfair to dump on someone, but I'm sure the $2.76M he earned (more than I'll make in my lifetime), and hopefully a useful college degree. So he can deal with my WTFery and like it.

    As someone who grew up around a few Dall-ass fans, can confirm that is their actual thinking. I remember one year when they went 1-15 a friend of mine was WOOOOOOO DALLAS THE BESSSSSSSST GOOOOOOOOOOOOO TEAMMMMMMM in my face before (and after) every game. I also delighted in taking any team in Madden and destroying another friend who would only play Cowboys. Every weekend he would tell me to come over and play because he had "new strats" and every time he would rage quit from getting obliterated.

    EDIT: Also, if you want to have some fun with a Dallas fan, argue with them about being called "America's Team".

    Yup. And the sad thing is, the teams that do the right thing, and drop these assholes, are essentially punished competitively, as a result.

    Granted, they're often only doing it well after they should have, like KC and Kareem Hunt (knew about it immediately, claim ignorance until video, released immediately), but even then, there seems to be very little fanbase/media criticism over hiring one of these assholes on the other end.

    The only two I can think of that were roundly maligned, and the teams signing got some form of kickback on, were the Cowboys for Greg Hardy and the Eagles for Michael Vick. And while they both demonstrably did bad acts, at least Vick paid a price. Peterson skated, and Washington embraced him. As mentioned above, Incognito got a pass for Buffalo. Kareem Hunt got a pass for the Browns.

    Too often, fanbases and the media turn a blind eye to this shit, and like you said, it's clear how the NFL feels about this stuff as a result.

    Incognito stepped his game up big time from bullying and racism

    What with the involuntary psychiatric hold after having an incoherent, delusional meltdown at a gym, and then topping that off by threatening a funeral home because they wouldn’t let him cut his dead dad’s head off for science and was found to have had an 80s action movie’s worth of firearms in his pickup truck

    That racist and bullying shit was just his warmup

    The dude has no brains left, and he originally retired due to failing kidneys and liver, which, uh....

    In short, the worrying part isn’t that they signed a shitbag, it’s that they signed a dude who has a low chance of still being alive (literally) by the end of the year due to symptoms that look a fuck lot like advanced CTE and/or organ failure and are going to make him ram his addled brain into other dude’s helmets and give him more drugs to keep him on the field!
