Re: NFL Thread

Waiting for the class of 2020 assumes Shurmur is in a position to play the long game. Another losing season and the pressure is on everybody in 2020 to perform or die. Drafting this year and using it to transition in a rookie QB helps buy him some time. Of course it all comes down to how they rate t...

Re: NFL Thread

I will be shocked if the Giants don’t draft a QB. The only way they don’t is if they get one through FA or trade, but I don’t see that happening with any of the current candidates. If I had to make a bold prediction regarding the Giants, I’ll go with the Raiders trading Carr to them in exchange for...

Compared to prior years, there isn’t that many QB needy teams... Giants, Jags and reportedly the Dolphins if they’re wanting to move on from Tannehill.

Re: NFL Thread

Once the Eagles strategy becomes apparent we will get a much better idea of the potential suitors for Foles. While inter-division trades are less common there are a couple of potential landing sites within there. Could be a real left field move takes the prize. Plenty to play out here.

The Flacco trade could be the most fun off-season story considering it raises more questions than it answers. You look at Flacco's historical achievements and he's top shelf.
