NFL Offseason: What's a Chris Collins Worth?

147 posts in this topic

Any mention of cursed NFL franchises without stopping by the Chargers is probably missing out.  50+ years without a title AND we lost the damned team to our least favorite city.

You're not going to catch any static from me.

I'm interested to see how Pittsburgh makes moves the next few years. Wondering if they'll stick with Tomlin and still keep guys around forever. They've always seemed like one of the most loyalist teams in the league, to me.

I don't see things changing much. His son Art has been the one running the team for years now as president.

Next year's QB draft is so much better. I don't get why anyone would be taking these clowns at the top of the draft.

Are they at least better prospects than Wentz and Goff?

Pretty comparable, with your better tools guys having questionable exposure a la Wentz, or your more tested guys having limited tools and coming from problematic systems like Goff.

Bengals are at 50 years with no titles and we don't have the luxury of living in paradise as a distraction. :P

I love it here, but we sure don't have great weather like southern California.

Right. I went and looked up Art and Dan, and Art again. Yea, I guess they are all very similar in how they run a team.

Interesting... Urban Dictionary and Wikipedia both say that Cincy and Charlotte both claim Queen City as a nickname.

That just won't work.  As everyone knows, in every group of friends there can only be one guy you call Moose.  If a second guy wants the name, he has to be something else.  (Edit:  Or kill the first guy...)

I don't want to alarm anyone, but it sure looks like, from analysis of his correspondence with team equipment staff, that Eli Manning was, more likely than not, at least generally aware of a conspiracy to engage in fraud related to football equipment.

I am sure Sheriff Goodell is keenly interested in this and eager to prove he's not just a lapdog for John "Domestic Abuse Enabler" Mara.

They tried to sell to Chris Ballard. He raised the alarm.

Why not just do like a Goose and refer to them collectively as Meese?

They should definitely throw the book at Eli, although sounds like in this instance criminal charges could be warranted. In fairness to Eli, though, I have always believed that he is legitimately mentally retarded.

He was an SEC QB after all....

If Eli is involved, it is fraud.  But I guarantee Eli gets off lighter than Tom Brady, who allegedly let some air out of a football (and has a defense based on the laws of physics....)

This isn't even in the same ballpark as it has absolutely no impact on the game itself.

Maybe this is just the result of 5 years of accounting education and 2 years in audit, but actual fraud is a much bigger deal than cheating (and I'm on the record as stating the NFL needs to retake high school science and think about the meaning of due process).
