Apparently the onus is purely on the clubs... there is sort of tacit acceptance that players and agents will do what is in their best interests and it's up to the clubs to shut it down and say "No, this is tampering, we cant have this talk"

i mean it's all a bit eye rolling anyways, tampering in the NFL is absolutely rife :lol:
But i think you're right about the old Al Capone trial analogy

The Steelers listed QB Mitch Trubisky as the starter on their initial depth chart. :roflmao :roflmao :roflmao :roflmao :roflmao :roflmao :roflmao :roflmao :roflmao :roflmao :roflmao

Steelers’ QB Mason Rudolph is listed as the backup and rookie QB Kenny Pickett is third string.

Probably about right. They drafted a guy in the 1st round whose tape suggests he's not as good as the other two QBs on their roster.

Firmly in the "its just training camp" but AJ Brown is apparently lighting up camp, and Jordan Davis has a rep on twitter where he's just walking our 2nd round centre back with ease... which could be viewed in one of two ways, and i side firmly on "Cam Jurgens is good and holy ****, Jordan Davis is a monster" but homers gotta homer.

Really happy with the Eagles first pre season game
The thing to look for imo is do the rookies look the part and on that front:

- Cam Jurgens had i think one bad rep where he got over powered in a bull rush, but he carved out a huge hole on the goal line to help punch in a TD, and when he pulls and is in space, its really easy to see the Kelce comps. There was a a screen pass to Sanders in the opening series and it was like watching Kelce... Fluidly got up to the 2nd level, picked up a body and blacked him back into the goal line

- Jordan Davis is going to be a problem. Not sure how many snaps he'll get because his motor. But you're not running on him and he showed in the first pre season game that he's capable of impacting the passing game.

- It was said Nakobe Dean had some injury that might rule him out for his first season which is why he fell. No signs of that in game 1. He was flying around, and making plays. Excited to have him and Kyzir White finally put some NFL talent in the Eagles LB room.

I was big on Jurgens heading into the draft and thought he'd be great for Dolphins at the back end of the 3rd. Mid 2nd round was higher than expected although it seems like "positional value" for centres is going up lately. Reckon Creed Humphrey had some influence there. I always thought Centres were undervalued at draft time so the market could be correcting itself.

Overall I thought the Eagles nailed the draft this year. On top of some good veteran acquisitions I'd call them locks for NFC East and will be a genuine threat in playoffs too. A lot will ride on Hurts becoming a consistent NFL calibre QB. He doesn't need to be another Pat Mahomes as most of the other pieces are in place. Overall a well balanced roster.

What I know about the Cowboys game...
17 penalties for 129yds... ooph! Horrible.

We had possibly 4 starters on offence, but they played between a quarter and a half of footy. 3 were offensive line.

Smith pancakes people! Had a few. However, he got 2 holds (1 was 100% BS - think The Blindside, flagged for "excessive blocking") and contributed to a sack.

Turpin and Housten are turning heads. They look like making the roster.

Tolbert was better at the combined training than the game apparently.

Running game went at 5 a carry. Pretty good with a no name OL and no name RBs.


We had 2 or 3 possible starters on D... the rookies.

Williams got a dodgey roughing the passer call.

Joseph got beat... a lot apparently. In danger of being cut too.

Run D conceded 32yds. They gave up 200+ to Denver last yr. Yes, reserves vs NFL, but still.
