THE ABSOLUTE MADMEN
WR is a top 3 need for the Falcons right now.
Roddy is done, he's dropping everything now. Hankerson was released because he has the dropsies. Hardy shows promise but he's a slot receiver.
The Falcons need either a dominant TE, or a true WR2. When the Falcons were at their best, they had two dominant WRs.
>Other needs: OLB, C, DE, DT
more likely that they draft a QB and let Sanchez play, since he's already under contract
>the rams took greg robinson over literally every other player in the historically great 2014 draft
>The Browns traded back instead of drafting the next GOAT
>The Bills took Sammy Watkins instead of the next GOAT
>The texans drafted a hawiian guard instead of Carr in the 2nd
>The Vikings drafted the trendy meme QB instead of Carr
>The Browns took Manziel instead of Based Carr
how does the draft work? does an entire team disband and they pick all the players with a draft? can players in teams choose to stay or transfer?
who gets forced in to the draft system or is it only "graduating" college players that go in the draft and the rest is done with trades and contracts?
sammy watkins is pretty good though
he's not ODB, but he's a top 5 WR from that draft, and that's saying something considering it's the most stacked WR draft of all time
>or is it only "graduating" college players that go in the draft and the rest is done with trades and contracts?
it's this, why would it be the other thing? that sounds retarded
Every Year players who've never been in the nfl have the opportunity to declare that they are entering the draft. 95% of them is young college players at least 3 years removed from high school.
There are seven rounds, and the draft order for each round is determined by inverse standings of last year's season(except for playoff teams.)
Teams can trade draft picks
Once a player is drafted, the team "owns" that players rights for a few years.
>most stacked WR draft of all time
>Jordan "le drop man" Matthews
still a semi-encouraging season from him later on tho tbf
Told you fuckers Cam was a top 5 QB and elite and y'all said no. First team all pro and gonna be a near unanimous MVP. Literally the best QB in the NFL this season and that's without his #1 WR
just because one draft is the best doesn't mean another can't be historically great u kno
that phrase just implies that compares to the vast majority of drafts an unusual amount of talent was drafted, which is true of 2014
yeah i mean he was 3 yards away from 1k yards, got a fuckton of YAC and got 8 TDs again, all while dealing with another QB transition and a couple games of sanchez
also according to the stats i'm finding online he only had 4 drops on the year somehow? which seems low but idk
assuming he's gonna be playing outside of the slot more he's a fine #1 to have imo
even ESPN thinks he deserves it more
they don't throw existing players back into the draft, that's not the point. it's a system for new "amateur" players to be picked, usually from college but not necessarily (see: players that came from the USFL or NFL Europe back in the day).
the way it works is that the new incoming pool of players that have not been in the league yet all "declare" for the draft. they have to do this, they can't just ignore it and sign with whoever they want to anyways at a later time.
then during draft day, there are 7 rounds (more than 32 picks per round in the later rounds) where every team takes turns selecting who they want to call "dibs" on. being selected doesn't mean they are obligated to play for them, it means that the drafting team gets priority. after getting drafted, the team and the agent of the player go into contract discussions for how much the player will be paid and for how long.
so, if the player refuses to play for the team that drafted them (rare), they have 3 options basically: demand a trade, wait out the period that the team owns their rights (several years, can't play in the league during that time), or suck it up and sign a contract with them anyways.
for all the players that went through the draft process but didn't get drafted even after the 7 rounds are done, they become undrafted free agents (UDFA) and can sign with anyone they want, because no team owns the right to sign them first.
after the player's rookie contract expires or is close to expiring, they can initiate contract negotiations again. some players will end up cut or traded from the team before that point, but the ones that survive their whole contract term can become unrestricted free agents after their contract ends, allowing them to sign with any team. assuming they aren't franchise tagged, of course.
it's also worth noting that draft picks are a league-recognized commodity, so they can be used as bargaining chips in all kinds of trades between teams.
according to Hopkins, Watkins doesn't need acrobatics to catch the ball because he is a sure route runner, but he can make the insane 1 handed catches when he needs to
Watkins and Hopkins have a rivalry going in that regard
>There are fags ITT that think the Panthers won't win the superbowl
>the vocal point of the offense
what would that be, like TO? kek
and how do you know he can't be the focal point of the offense? this is his first year being the most talented receiver on the team and even then he still wasn't used the way #1s are generally used
i'd wait till next year is over to pass complete judgment like that
i think watkins does run better routes yeah, but i'm not sure if that alone makes him better than ODB
i do agree that his numbers suffer from being in the bills not-so-pass-heavy offense
i was impressed at what he did to revis that last game, i think it was a sign of what he can become
To Houston fans, the reason the media likes you is JJ Watt. The reason they are not picking you is Bryan Hoyer.
The reasons they don't like KC
>No national ad player
>average players across the board
>Don't have a name they like at QB
>small market fly-over
>not located on the West (Fox) or East (ESPN&CBS) coast
>Not scoring 40pts a game
>the vocal point
Very nervous about our thin secondary, Norman better step up in the playoffs.
Same for Ginn
>implying Brian Hoyer isn't the same caliber as Smiff
these teams are similar, but where KC only has Justin Houston, who is only probable, Texans have at least 2 good pass rushers (mercilus and clowney) and the DPotY
and it's not "drought", it's that Andy Reid has been a playoff choker for years
why do you think i mentioned that they needed another TE? Basically, the problem with the Falcons really is redzone efficiency. They lead the league in redzone turnovers committed and redzone inefficiency. They need to add more weapons, they haven't added any passing weapons since Julio in 2011.
The defense has great potential if they add more pass rushers and linebackers who can cover. The defense was #14 in PPG and #16 in YPG this season (vast improvement from #32 last season).
Yeah but Brady had literal shit at oline for most of the year and shit at WR for half of it
If Brady kept up his pace from the first half of the year (when everyone was at least somewhat healthy) he would have BTFO Cam's numbers by a long shot
I'm tell you why ESPN is picking KC not why people on /sp/ should pick KC. When it comes down to it ESPN says Defenses are even (Hali &Houston VS Watt) and offenses are even (Maclin and Kelce vs Hopkins) so they go to playoff record which 1-2 beats 0-0.
I, even as a chiefs fan, know the game comes down to two things
>Will JJ Watt go off?
>Can Marcus Peters cover Hopkins?
You can't assume that Houston wins both of theses just like I can't assume KC wins both. Because there are games where Watt does nothing and Hopkins is contained.
I honestly love Oakmeme. He is basically Clowney. Clowney in the 2nd round is appropriate. The Falcons need more physically imposing DEs to eat up double teams for Beasley, who was doubled all year long from weeks 6-15. The Panthers left him singled up on the right side and paid for it.
I also like Shilique Calhoun. I would take either Calhoun or Oakman in the 2nd round without hesitation.
I had a long post typed out to respond to this but maybe that would be a fun way to spend the offseason as long as I don't have to stick to a strict schedule. I mean I have a microphone, basic image editing software, and basic video editing software, so it's possible to do that. I dunno how many people would really care though if I actually bothered to put in the work.
Run N Gun lets you put your RB or WR at QB in shotgun formation so if you have someone like Terrelle Pryor, Darren McFadden or Denard Robinson you can plug him in and fucking style on everyone. I know Denard Robinson has pretty decent passing ratings, something like 80 arm strength and 70 accuracy across the board
fuck i completely spaced on hurns because he was undrafted
i'd put him at 9th because of evans' drop issues, but not too much higher because he's helped out a lot by AR15 drawing so much attention
oakman completely underwhelmed last year with an easy af schedule and has multiple off the field concerns
physically it's all there but mentally i wouldn't touch the guy
raiders fans can't handle it when their team isn't discussed for more than 5 minutes
Desaun Watson is the flashiest option next year as a true junior. Baker Mayfield may leave early or stay 1 more year, although I think he won't amount to much in the NFL. Brad Kaaya is also pretty well known at Miami. Josh Rosen won't be eligible until 2018 draft. And there'll be any number of QBs who won't get attention until they declare or put up ridiculous stats.

It's David Molk, a shitty, career back up, undersized center.
clowney is actually a pass rusher though, not just an athlete
oakman is fucking massive and strong but his technique is retarded and he makes a ton of mental mistakes
everyone shits on clowney because according to them "he only made one play in college and that's why he was first overall" but oakman doesn't even have that
he's rated on unwarranted hype and size alone
we need to cut that fucker, i'd rather have bennie logan playing center than him

He's a true role model.
A man who sticks to his moral code regardless of others mocking.
A man who proved naysayers wrong his whole life.
You're to small to be a QB.
You're too short to be a starter in the NFL.
You're not good enough to wind a World Title.
And regardless of the setbacks...
Being forced to file for divorce from his unappreciative wife.
Being cast off from NC State for a giraffe.
Losing the Rose Bowl in his senior year.
Losing the Super Bowl in his 2nd appearance in one.
He never quit.
And that's why he's a winner. And that's why he'll win tomorrow too.

“For some guys, linemen especially,” he writes, urinating in your pants while on the field “is actually a thing, a sign that you’re so into the game, so much of a fighter” that you won’t pause to use the toilet. “You’d rather let it spill out all over your legs.”

On being a nice guy:
“In the off-season he lives with his dad. "God,” he says, “I love the Beach Boys.” His idea of a good time is going to the nearest mall. His idea of an even better time is saving money on sheets at Macy’s. He’s cheap. After dinner at a Cheesecake Factory, he writes: “I leave a nice 10 percent tip. That’s a lot, for me.”

They didn't spill the beans. Other people figured it out from context clues in the book. What team has had a diva wide receiver "Dante" (to remain anonymous, leave early in 2014. This team is also associated with protein shakes and has an aged but Pro Bowl caliber LT. What player on that team is a 3rd string OL, claims he's 6'3 (Molk is actually 6'1 lol), and 270-290 lbs? Did this player's mother die before her time?
>urinating in your pants while on the field “is actually a thing, a sign that you’re so into the game, so much of a fighter” that you won’t pause to use the toilet. “You’d rather let it spill out all over your legs.”

Lol, he's fake as they come, man. Fake good boy persona, endorsement whore, pretends to be religious, kind of a false idol if you ask me tbqh. Why you want someone like him as a role model is beyond me. He is good though, tiny but built, fast, has an arm.
Yes. Anytime there's been a war movie in theaters, Belichick takes the team to watch it. Probably to show comradery, build a bond and no one loves the US troops like The Hoodie
Anyone? 4PM ET games I can handle, Super Bowl at six and a half - fine, it's the fucking SB and the last game of the year, but my sleep graphic isn't ready for primetime games every week yet
>Lol, he's fake as they come, man. Fake good boy persona, endorsement whore, pretends to be religious, kind of a false idol if you ask me tbqh
what are you basing this on, or are you just talking out of your ass again?
Nigga. I frequented /mlb/ during the regular/post season as well as other generals and during those generals I've not seen as many trips suck each others dicks in every single general, post pictures of their transexual ass and every single regular anon saying how rockhard it gets them.
If you think other generals are anyway as homosexual as the people who frequent /nfl/ in any light you are delusional about your sport.
Look up any of his interviews, he whores for his endorsements and ONLY when they win he says ">muh God is a Xekucks fan". If you need to ask why he's fake, you're probably blind.

Chiefs hardest matchup would be the patriots. Chiefs have shown they they can beat Manning and if they face the Broncos who after game 16 will be started in the playoffs, who not only ontop of his age, and his playoff choking history got absolutely shamed by the Chiefs.
Expect that to happen again but worse and at the broncos own home.
Only thing that has to happen is the Chiefs beating the pats.
>Steelers beat Bengals
>either of these teams can BTFO Broncos
>Bengals beat Steelers
>either of these teams have an okay chance of beating Patriots (see the last 2 weeks of the Pats season)
why are you made? both of these teams have a pretty good chance to make the AFC CG, more so than the Steelers or the Bengals sans Dalton
every writer is calling these the hottest 2 teams entering the playoffs
>mfw cam cucks thought nig Newton was better than luck
>Luck playoff wins

Be not afraid. This has been willed where, what is willed, must be.
i guess i havent been here long enough but i havent seen fuccboi ass posted here, in other words its been on topic for quite a while. on the other hand you seem to be assmad at the general for some reason
also i say this because i frequent 2 other generals constantly, one on /vg/ (/padg/) and the other on /k/ (/arg/). i used to frequent one on /m/ but it died, and another on /vg/ but it got really off topic all the time and had way too much of the problem youre literally describing (/tf2g/). so as far as i can tell this general has been alright so far with minimum circlejerking, but if its too much for you or /sp/ i cant fucking tell because thats how bad other boards can be
>WAAAAAH WHY ARE THEY RECOGNIZING A NOTABLE PLAYER DURING THE ONE SEASON HE IS NOTABLE
>WAAAAAAAH WHY DON'T THEY AWARD THE EXACT SAME PLAYER YEAR AFTER YEAR REGARDLESS OF PERFORMANCE
Wilson wasn't in the discussion and regardless he had to play Cards twice. Carolina played 3 playoff teams. Many others like GB, Bengals, Cheifs, and Steelers had to play playoff teams 7 times
Any general on /vg/ is what I originally described. Just how the nature of videogames and the social circle around them. Wouldn't know about /k/ but I meant more or less on /sp/ /nfl/ is by far the worst one.
Chiefs are perfectly capable of beating the Pats as well. Andy Reid is one of the few coaches in the NFL that can go toe-to-toe with Bill gameplan-wise. Remember the Monday Night Massacre?
>Cooks above Robinson
Dont get me wrong, i love Cooks, but he was sorta quiet for a part of the season, Brown is always putting mad numbers.
Provided that Cooks is in a very spread out system, everyone gets the ball and there is no #1.
You are. And it is killing you. Here. eat some delicious Oikos yogurt.
Because Cam isn't leading the highest scoring offense and bailed his team out multiple times where the defense let up 30+ points. Wilson has ONE win over a team that scored 24 or more
>they don't throw existing players back into the draft, that's not the point
Exception -- rarely, when the league expands and new teams are created. Then the new team(s) get to draft a few unprotected crap players from existing teams.But that's not the draft we're tlaking about here.
I was feeling pretty good until I saw Carl Rove picked the Panthers to win it all. Rove is a genius at politics (maybe an evil genius, but a genius nonetheless) but he can't pick football for shit.
yes, that was the point. the expansion draft is a special case, as are supplemental drafts which have some different rules. there's also some things I said that are not exactly true, but give a starting base of working information to someone who doesn't get it.
>The only teams that can beat them is themselves or the Rams.
Panthers beat them once already, at Seattle, so it's possible they'll beat them in Charlotte.
That said, the weather at the Vikings game may literally kill them all, and then it wont matter. Shit's going to be brutal.
I know, I'm an Eagles fan and still remember that whole game
Jim Johnson literally created the blueprint for beating that Pats team that everyone else then began to employ like the Ravens and Gnats

If Brady kept his pace, and if Cam turned into literal Superman and used heat vision to melt opposing players while scoring 15,000 touchdowns by passing to himself... yeah, we can talk about who would be MVP and All Pro and whatever if made up shit happened., if you want to.

What a douche.
well, I guess the first step would be to figure out what topics to make them on? I think it might be easier to digest if I broke things up into self-contained subjects. separating them by things about the game of football and things about the league makes sense, but I'm not sure what things people specifically need clarification on. there's a lot of "basic rules" videos out there already, so where do I go from there?
You know, if he never his mother died, though all the other info he gave way would have eventually made it obvious, he wouldn't have been found so easily.
The fact that he said his mother died, coupled with the thing about the divas WR, the fact that he's an linemen, the fact that he pretty much told us that he plays with Jason Peters, it's so easy to find him
I will take pleasure when he's cut and homeless.

mack should be the #1 priority was my point, but yeah lock up carr and cooper when the time comes too
They are not, they fall under the problem of the coach being the most known person on the franchise. I forgot LeSean was there or if Watkins was playing but I wasn't allowed to forget Rex Ryan. Peters having all the picks is what gets him in the talk for the award.

lmao congrats sweden
because if you're not comparing the equivalent teams in each division, what's the point of comparing divisions anyway?
there, now the NFC south is better than the NFC west
that yardage would easily be a franchise record right?
hopefully we can resign him for not too much
6 is too god damn cold for a good game to be played and you're an idiot if you disagree. It's a fact that players play better in better weather when they're more comfortable. I want to see these guys at their absolute best not settle because their balls are frozen.

>There are people ITT who think the NFC won't be represented by the NFC West
yeah week 17 really sealed it for him, i think i said something about how brady needed to destroy the dolphins to have a chance and he did the opposite of that
brady will get more votes on rep tho, and palmer is a better story
because he hasn't been as consistent as cam
i said they'll get votes, not that they'll win
ok, so? you're just confirming my point that the AFCE is better
>Predictions using mathematical models based on statistical measures are becoming more commonplace. These models can be based on a variety of factors, such as player performance, wins and losses and strength of schedule. I developed a mathematical model based on regular-season team statistics to predict which teams would represent their respective conferences in Super Bowl 50. Using data from 2004 to 2011, the model correctly predicted the last two Super Bowl matchups (the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII and the Seahawks and New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX), suggesting that it has some value.
>By applying the same model to the 2015 regular season, I developed the following predictions:
>That's right -- based on this model, you can expect the Bengals and Cardinals to square off in Super Bowl 50.
Most in franchise history and would be 2nd in the league this year. That number is inflated due to Chip's system, but it's deflated by the quality of the receivers.
He led the league with (conservative estimate) 5.6% of his passes dropped despite breaking franchise records for highest completion percentage. If the team brings it down to a league average 4%, then he projects out to 4935 yards. Shit man, they have to keep him. He's the real winner of the trade.
>demarco murray, kenjon barner, and demarco murray combined for 13 drops on 95 targets for a drop percentage of 13.7%
i want him to stay on the team even if we draft a QB, and have them fight it out for the starting job
assuming bradford wins, the other guys gets to learn without pressure for a year
I've read somewhere Cam said that losing Benjamin is what made him better. It forced him to learn defenses and spread the ball more. Who knows if that happens with Benjamin there.
The regular season is over. They're gonna fuck shit up in the playoffs too but i'm predicting an undefeated season next year. Next year they'll get it done and do it right. Benjamin was the missing piece.
it is harder if you don't have a 6'5" jumping monster to chuck jump balls to
just ask jameis winston last year
if you say so i guess
I'm not saying he'll forget, I'm saying Benjamin never gets hurt and Cam played 2015 with him and without adapting.
It could still happen, he was due to really breakout.
>myles jack falling to 17
Unlikely, but possible. He's injured right? Probably won't participate in all the combine drills. And as another anon said, he recently had a mediocre game. In a SB Nation mock he fell to the Falcons.
Nah, he's a true athletic OLB who has good range and athleticism to cover. He's exactly what the Falcons need.
>using the ENTIRE 2016 season as a basis
I contend that using the last 8 weeks is the most accurate if you want to get an idea of how these teams will do in the playoffs.
things change over the course of the season and the teams have to adapt to those changes. by week 9, everyone has pretty much learned the systems, the rookies have gotten lots of experience, and the QBs have found their favorite targets
teams that falter in the final couple weeks of the season typically don't do well in the playoffs
definitely not. The Patriots are a much better team. The Patriots outscored the Chiefs this season by 60 points but only allowed 10 more points. Their net score is a lot better. Net score is the most reliable stat to rate teams because it takes the entire game into consideration, both offense and defense.
his stock would have to really tank, some mocks are putting him within the top 5, probably because jaylon smith's leg inverted itself
you could always get scooby wright
cameron is a pretty normal name comparatively
>10 game win streak
>8 of the teams were sub .500 garbage (3 wins charger, 2 wins browns, 5 win ravens)
>2 wins were Peyton getting hurt and Steelers w/ Landry Jones
if any team has had an easier schedule, I don't know who it is (perhaps seahawks or panthers)
Doesn't matter, they still beat them. Teams are always due for upsets against bad teams (see the Pats), but they still pulled off wins. Winning is what matters in the end, who cares about all the bullshit you just said.
leonard floyd is an underrated pass rusher, i'd take a look at him if i were you
personally i really really want scooby to fall to the 3rd, i'd love to have him, his 2014 is fantastic
if only he could stay healthy
pass rusher, RB, or WR prob
positions who can have a huge impact on the game in one play
nah we don't need any more tweeners with Beasley out there.
Honestly, Beasley would probably make an awesome convert to OLB, he's great in coverage. He played RB in high school. Basically like Anthony Barr. Still though he's the only player on the team who can consistently create pressure.
>I'd be very surprised if Mike Smith does not emerge as a strong head coach option with Tampa
what are you doing tampon gay???
that the guy that got caught for fucking ectasy? i vaguely remember that story
yeah i'd keep him on the line, he's been decently effective there and linebacker is a need for you anyway
i've seen nkemdiche predicted to fall to you guys a couple times, what do you think of him? off field issues aside he's a monstrous talent
elite in the slot with another elite WR to take the pressure off maybe

This is overall QB contributions. Numbers would be different without rushing yards or with the player contributing a full 16 games. Will post an adjusted ranking mocking a full 16 games based on per game averages.
I am pretty excited about the hire. I think they will do a great job in management now. He is not a babby. He has been there 16 years with the team. It worked for other teams. I think it will be fun being a Lions fan.
Was getting caught part of your plan?

>Evans finally fixed his hands
>David and McCoy playing livid as neither made all-pro this season, with Alexander playing livid because he had DROY stolen from him
>Brate supplanting ASJ

There's no pleasure like being a Bucs fan.
So this is numbers for how far the ball traveled through the air, plus a quarter of the yards after catch?
Remove QB rushing yards, im interested in how it looks then. I assume Palmer, Brees and Brady should be top 3.
Why don't you just kill yourself man.
I'm 21. I was too depressed to apply during HS, and I'd threatened to shoot up my school too so it was doubtful that I'd be admitted anywhere anyway.
Exactly, since the YAC:Yards thrown is actually increasing since the rule changes protect QBs and WRs more, forcing most defenses to play softer.
This allows the QB just credit for completing the pass and some of the credit for hitting a receiver open enough to gain yards. It's also almost consistent through the eras, which is better than passing yards.
I know we say it every season but I sincerely feel good about next season but I think it'll actually mean something this time. William Clay Ford is dead. Lombardi is gone. We have a great DC and OC. A gm whom is likely to be confident, and a President who's an actual businessman.
QB rankings, past has some weight but not all of it. Because Luck, Rodgers, and Peyton had such bad seasons, it's tough this season to rank everyone.

>29-32. shouldn't be starting QBs at all
Press F to pay respects
reminder that based James Jones has been elite outside of his mid season slump
>Eli above Rivers
They're about equal, but Eli was having one of the best seasons of his career. I gave the edge to Eli for SB rings and that's all.
>Ryan above Dalton
>Ryan above Cousins
This is the only good season Cousins has ever had, but he's still behind in Yards compared to Ryan. Dalton is basically a lesser version of Matt Ryan right now, although this season has been good when he's been healthy.
>Peyton not in the 20s
Peyton has had a shit year, but so has Rodgers. Still the all fucking time leader in yards, and last week was clutch.
Dalton is a little overrated atm, my opinion. AJ McCarron kinda proves my point.
Romo is still one of the better QBs of the past 10 years, and last season he was top 10.
Flacco has been shit for like 3 years now, come on.
you do one
>I wasn't sure which F you meant
exactly how many Fs do you have on your keybaord anon?
based off this past regular season alone. No past accomplishments.

26-32. No one even worth listing
>I gave the edge to Eli for SB rings and that's all
rivers has a higher completion%, fewer interceptions, and a higher rating, all with a dumpster fire chargers team
he's also been a better QB his entire career
this is so retarded
>This is the only good season Cousins has ever had, but he's still behind in Yards compared to Ryan. Dalton is basically a lesser version of Matt Ryan right now, although this season has been good when he's been healthy.
cousins has 8 more passing touchdowns, 5 fewer interceptions, a higher comp%, better rating, higher ypa, and no julio jones
dalton is still second in rating, had a 25/7 td-int ratio, and was averaging like a full yard more per attempt than ryan
>comparing peyton's 9-17 td-int ratio to rodgers' 31-8
serious question lake: are you actually retarded?
butthurt? I fucking love Big Ben. But like I said this is based off this past season alone and he was hurt for a lot of it. Wouldn't be fair to list him much higher. I had to put him in the top 10 out of respect.
>that double move
How did Allen Hurns go undrafted again
>Kelvin Benjamin as a rookie had over 1000 yards and 9 touchdowns.
>Carolina offense is still #1 in the NFL
>Patriots lose 4 of 6.
Seriously Saying it doesn't have an impact is lying. Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers have issues when their top targets are injured but Cam is playing his best football in his career when he has Ted Ginn jr, corey brown, and devin funchess as his top receivers.
