Welp...
I have always thought that a 3rd would be fantastic for him, realistically a 4th is what I expect now.

He may have potential, but he also has 3 years of poor to middling tape.

Re: 2024 NFL Rule Changes

I grew up with it being illegal for an offensive player to physically assist the ball carrier in any way other than blocking opponents who are not engaged in tackling the ball carrier. I find the tush push the abhorrent result of allowing offensive linemen/blockers to "move the piles" fro...

Re: Caleb Williams News and Rumor thread

I struggle to understand how a QB that threw 2 TD passes his last 7 games, with loads of nfl talent around him is somehow shooting up a draft board. I think he projects pretty well into the Shannahan/McVay schemes. Most recognize his lack of big numbers was a result of that talent around him and ru...

On that Drake Maye video--some of us are old enough to recall Kyle Boller throwing a strike through the uprights from the 50 yl, from a knee about 20 years ago. Got drafted 19th by the Ravens.

The top QBs rarely ever throw at the combine. Do you think he is or isn’t going to prove something that can’t be seen on his game tape?

Well, if pretty much having a good idea what a QB is after 3 seasons in the nfl is being a hater, so be it. Caleb’s odds may be 50/50, but that’s way better than Justin’s odds after 3 middling to poor seasons. Be honest though, you didn't wait 3 seasons, you hated him much earlier than that. And th...

The only thing they really”negotiate” on the first round rookie deals is the offset language. Most of the recent holdouts have been over that which was also what Roquan held out over.
