  1. Lets temper our expectations with Rafferty. Wasnt too long when a young Kevin Connauton ripped it up in the Dub and everyone in CDC was penciling him as PP1 material, Norris candidate etc. Lets see him stay in the NHL first

    Im not sure if Burrow is gonna do any good with the Bengals having a retard of a coach in Zack Taylor. Geez, 1st and goal on the 3, Mixon was averaging like 8-9yrds per carry at that time and you decide to PASS 3 times in a row (1st down being a sack). Many times the Bengals squandered near the goal line, I believe the loss is all on the coach
  3. I hope they find a way to keep Gaudz at centre, he's just a completely different player than him playing the wing. I know he's not the greatest in faceoffs and in the defensive zone, but he just brings a lot more offensively. His play in our zone will improve with experience, hes got the effort to do it. Its come to the point now where Gaudette NEEDS to be in the lineup
  4. I really like that line coming together the past 2 games. Having Rooster in that line holds Jake and Gaudz accountable, if they take a shift off, they are gonna hear about it in the bench from Roussel

    As a player, I actually wasn't a fan of Jacobs coming out of college, I thought Montgomerie (whos with the bears) was the best back in draft, but Jacobs has turned out pretty good. As a person, I've known a bit about how he was homeless and thats a great read on players tribune, Josh Jacobs the man is the type you root for. The guy literally had nothing, I hope he keeps foot on the ground and has a long lasting career in the league

    and the guy with the best arm talent in that draft, Josh Rosen is pretty close to being in the CFL. Its also a testamate to their management and coaching staff ( LJ and J Allen) that they are all in on their QBs, not just giving them the right scheme but getting them the best players that fit their talent
  7. SFO is absolutely insanely expensive. My brother recently got a job in the silicon valley and the price of rent in downtown San Francisco, 420 ish sq feet, $3200 USD! In Canadian $ thats about 4500$, thats a mortage payment for around a million $ home here Vancouver!

    True enough, but other than Tua, I don't think Burrows or Herbert are going make much of an impact in comparison to a Cam Newton (if he gets released)? It all depends whos out there as a FA. I just think after Tua, the other guys just are a couple rungs down from him. Im just a believer that if its not a sure fire franchise QB, and a possible Elite OT, you take the OT. I just think offensively, if they can shore up the Oline, maybe a pieces defensively, they can ride Mixon to a decent standing in the league

    Im not super sold on Burrows. I think (since Tua is out for the year), they should be targetting an O lineman (Andrew Thomas?) Dalton actually hasnt;' been that bad from what Ive seen, its just the O-line is trash. The Bengals have a lot of needs

    Pats by a touchdown this weekend. Pats will do just enough to win it, and Dak will stuggle with Gilmore on the other side and Amari not fully healthy

    Tua would probably be a good pick for them, let him sit behind Philip for a year or two. Rivers is on borrowed time, man he's looked awful

    bang on. I don't think those guys on his team would come to his aid if he uttered the N word. Also the fact that Myles own teammates didn't know about Rudolph calling him the N bomb, reaks a lot of BS. I'd tell everyone in my team immediately if someone called me that, not wait a week to do it. It just screams desperation

    Should've said that right from the outset. Garrett is just grasping on straws to try to lessen the embaressment. When you call the race card a WEEK after, I call BS.

    sean mcdermott, i doubt it. Shanahan maybe, most of the credit of the 49ers rise should be on DC Robert Saleh. 49ers offence still isn't great and thats Shanahans side of the ball. Harbaugh basically catered the entire offence to Lamar strengths, not to mention the teams that the Ravens have beaten are far far more impressive to what the 49ers have done so far.
  15. I like the idea of Stetcher for Barrie, just my opinion I think it would take more than Stetcher to pry him off from Toronto, probably would have to add a guy like Gadjovich or Lockwood (who has a chance that he might not sign here). Best case scenario really is his asking salary is goes down the drain because of his deflated stats next off season, like 4-4.5 million per year. Wonder if Benning would consider swapping Tanev for Barrie? Both would fill each teams needs and both are UFA's end of the season
