Not sure he's a loose cannon, just fairly limited and probably not a lot of upside. He's a good pocket passer and that's it.

GB2506 28-04-2021 05:04 PM

Lots of mock drafts from ‘experts’ have Fields falling. If he does start to fall I really hope the Pats make the move to get him. Behind Cam for a year would be the perfect place for him. He can redshirt for a year and work with BB and McDaniels. Would be so happy if we get him!

Sounds like his conduct off the field is far from ideal.

Am I the only once sure that Panthers will draft a QB following the Bridgewater trade?

Weird move... Not sure on Darnold as yet, and not even sure who we have as a back up now. Is it the guy from the XFL?

It depends on what happens. If Mac Jones is the only QB left or there is none, they'll try to trade down. If Lance or Fields is there, I think they'll draft them. I can't see them staying at #8 and taking a non-QB.

greybot 30-04-2021 01:45 AM

We got Trevor Lawrence. This is my teams Shaq to Orlando in '92 moment. :sunglasses:

Vicmo 30-04-2021 01:52 AM

Glad we went for Trey Lance rather than Mac Jones!

CP-RJW 30-04-2021 02:01 AM

Sensible, predictable picks in the top 5, though Sewell might’ve been better for the Bengals.

Who will be the first to royally fvck up?

Jones was always a smokescreen

Sat here wishing the Pats will make the move for Fields. Just know we wonít and will take a CB at 15 or even trade back. Would be peak Bill!

Reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers is so disgruntled with the Green Bay Packers that he has told some within the organization that he does not want to return to the team, league and team sources told ESPN on Thursday.

The Packers are aware of his feelings, concerned about them and have had team president Mark Murphy, general manager Brian Gutekunst and head coach Matt LaFleur each fly out on separate trips to meet with Rodgers at various points this offseason, sources told ESPN.
Rumor has Rodgers going to the Broncos. Since they didn't take Fields, this might wash.

Annoyingly good pick for the Bears

GB2506 30-04-2021 02:55 AM

******* fuming. Won’t get a better chance to move up 4 spots (a 3rd round pick would have got us there) to get a franchise QB. Spent all that money in free agency on TE’s and we have noodle arm Cam throwing to them.

CP-RJW 30-04-2021 03:14 AM

God damnit Vikings. Had to take Vera Tucker there.

CP-RJW 30-04-2021 03:25 AM

So, the Patriots drafted an unathletic white QB with 3 letters in his first name and 5 letters in his last name...

CT_Palace 30-04-2021 03:27 AM

Well, I wanted a more mobile QB, so I'm not going to complain at all.

However, Lance isn't anywhere near a starting NFL QB. Still very rough around the edges and needs some really intense coaching. But he certainly shows a huge amount of potential.
I guess it's JimmyG for next season - if he can stay fit that's not such a bad option, and it gives the 9ers a year to work on Lance.

Given the history of Bears QBs, I see him having a so-so career. I mean, Jay Cutler is the best Bears QB ever.

Quote:

The Atlanta Falcons made history Thursday night, selecting Florida tight end Kyle Pitts with the No. 4 overall pick in the NFL draft.

It marks the first time in NFL history that a tight end is the first non-quarterback selected in the draft, and the earliest a tight end has been drafted in the common draft era (since 1967).
I'm sure there is 0% chance this ends in tears.

And of course the Pats stay put and get the guy they wanted anyway.

Exactly why Bill went for him over Fields. He would have spoken to his best bud Saban at length about him. We have one of the best O-Lines in the league so will give him time in the pocket to get the ball away quickly to either of the TE's or Kendrick Bourne in the slot.

I have calmed down a little bit more after last night. I was blinded by the Fields potential play making ability but Jones is more ready made for the Pats offense. High football IQ and accurate pocket passer.

aj4england 30-04-2021 01:18 PM

Cardinals learn their lesson from last years Rd 1 Pick in taking a positionless Isiaah Simmons that they could not get the best of of to do the exact same again this year! Bonkers

Ohio State QBs are rarely successful either. But I think Fields will be an exception, personally. As long as the “character issues” aren’t truly problematic.

Fivethirtyeight did an analysis of the story that Ohio State doesn't produce quarterbacks which basically revealed that a QB's school cannot predict pro success. The possible exceptions are USC (good) and LSU (bad).

aj4england 25-05-2021 06:54 PM

Had an early season look through teams, divisions, depth charts and also teams who had tough schedules last years + injuries + covid.

Overwhelmingly, I came out in favour that I could see big improvements from the Ravens, which is quite scary considering they made the final 8.

Reasons being returning Left Tackle Ronnie Stanley, considered one if not the best in the game, improvements across their O line and have sneakily upgraded the wide out room to now have Sammy Watkins, Marquise Brown and 1st Rounder Bateman. Also should be noted that their 2nd TE Nick Boyle who missed most of last year is due to return, a great asset in the run blocking.

History says that half the playoff teams from last season will make it again this season and half won't. As for the NFC South, it's completely up in the air. No more Brees in NO means that Brady is the favorite but he has to crash at some point. Right?

Nevertheless, Daniel Snyder has stepped aside for the foreseeable, and his wife has taken his place (even though he thinks she's better suited to cheerleading or serving the half time drinks)

Pats release Cam Newton. Did not see that one coming. All aboard the Mac Jones train......with Brian Hoyer as QB2.......gulp.

He's showed a huge amount of potential during camp and pre-season but to release Cam and throw him in week 1 is certainly diving in the deep end.

In BB we trust!

Tripod 10 31-08-2021 04:34 PM

Would take Cam at Dallas. Prescott injured and probably won't be able to start the season with the 3 current backups all being horrendous.

Potentially easy question, on behalf of a collegue who is a Bengals fan and considers the cost of getting live games through NFL.com to be too much (FYI I agree with him). What's the best way to watch your team's games without subscribing directly through NFL.com?

Trey Lance gets his first of hopefully many TD passes for the 9ers :lux:

My tv provider includes ESPN extra that carries NFL Redzone although itís really annoying because itís the regular US broadcast with Spanish commentary over the top of the English commentary, so Iím listening to 2 commentaries.
When it gets too much or I want to watch an entire 9ers game I use the same streaming sites many of us use to watch Palace.

Not sure but can get NFL game pass for around £130 per year - works out £7.50 a game which to me is great value considering you get EVERY game in the NFL (bar those being shown in the UK on Skysports)

There probably are some streaming sites around but never really bothered as cant be bothered to be d*cking around finding streams at 10.30pm on a sunday night

But the MLB app which is the same is £120 a year and they play 162 games a season as opposed to 16. Basically works out to about 75p per game.

Even the NBA app at £120 for 82 regular season games works out at £1.50 per game. If anything NFL fans have definitely got the rough end of the stick, they are paying a lot more per game than other sports for the same services albeit for a different sport.

I should add as well, you can watch any game on any night in the MLB or NBA at that price too.

Well around half a million US viewers watch Prem footy. But that ad is aimed at young people and is probably global in reach anyway. I only recognise Will Smith' son Jaden, and (I think) Michael Jackson's daughter Paris?

Also the Raiders accepted his resignation. From the sound of it he should have been sacked.
