    Left Tackle - Flugel Faves and Hopefuls

    If for some crazy reason Simmons is still there at #10, that's just as big a need IMO. . Highly doubt that'll be an option though, and thus makes LT the very obvious choice. Yeah, sometimes you gotta look at the bigger picture in terms of prospects. There's a reason defensive linemen have been pouring out of the flood gates from Ohio State-they all want to be coached by Larry Johnson. Whatever that dude does, he does it damn well. Same thing with Sam Pittman as the (former) OL coach at Georgia. Whenever that dude gets his hand on a NFL prospect on the O-Line, they end up solid to great players. No reason to overthink on that one, if Thomas is there take him. Only way it gets complicated is if Simmons is there too.

    Sean Payton Tests Positive

    just a shame there the lovely USA is behind the 8 ball on testing. About a week ago I didn't have a fever but all the other symptoms. Called my doctor who asked me 1) had I traveled internationally, 2)did I know anyone infected. Answer to both was no, so they said simply they don't test people without yes to those questions. Down where I live (south florida) they set up a mobile testing area. Great right? until it came out they have capability to test approximately 60 people a day, got overwhelmed and closed two days later. As of this morning my situation is still what qualifies people for a test. People are straight up lying to get tested. Fortunately my work was very good about switching to remote work, and I had ability even with a baby to self-isolate. Think of the millions of people who can't do that though. Tough to see people like Kevin Durant get tested when he had zero symptoms too. I get it, rich people gonna rich people but still.

    Schobert to Jags

    I just don't see how you're acting like $3 million is chump change. If you "rule of 7" that amount of money, by the time Joe hits his early 50's he's going to have an extra $40 something million in the bank. Who the hell knows if Joe is the type to smartly invest money, but that's the long-term picture you gotta consider. It's also a different mentality when you're "career" is over by the time you're mid 30's at the latest.

    Schobert to Jags

    140% match on 401k? Let my ass sit on the end of the bench for two years, I'll be the best damn water boy the NBA has ever seen! 😀 MLB makes sense to me actually cause it's so rigorous to get to the big league compared to other sports. Good write-up, definitely agree. As noted, there's a reason guys hold out for "small" difference of a couple million dollars in fully guaranteed money. You do certainly have dudes like TB12 who took a pay cut to get players around him. Of course, not every player in the NFL ALSO has a super model wife who routinely earns more money than them.

    Both Murray and Burris gone

    Yeah, given the recent signings I wouldn't put that as "1st round need" over LB but I'd be fine looking at 2nd round if it makes sense.

    Schobert to Jags

    It does, but if I could wipe my ass with $100 bills it may making losing a bit easier. I mean you directly noted Joe's situation. Sure, I don't disagree but it's not like a situation we would face where a new job may mean $10k bonus. For an NFL player, $3 million dollars is setting up your children for life. Joe could go down during OTA's and never play again, it's the nature of the business. There's a reasons dudes hold out for that type of monetary difference in negotiations. I just pretty strongly believe a lot of dudes see playing the game just as a job, and want to get the biggest bag they can. No shame there.

    I am worried about safety depth, admittedly. Redwine looked awful last year and Randall was on and off the field with injury. Our biggest need clearly is LB help, but safety has to be high on the list now too.

    Schobert to Jags

    I've said it before, but honestly I just wonder how many guys truly have the Tom Brady "win at all costs" mentality. I truly believe to many dudes in the NFL it's not much different than how we view our jobs. I'd be willing to bet Jags overpaid for Joe compared to other teams by a little bit anyway. If we're talking the difference of say $3 million fully guaranteed, that's life changing.

    JC Tretter Elected New NFLPA President

    I heard a little about the guy this morning that I honestly had no idea about until now. Turns out he's a Cornell grad with a major of industrial labor relations.Everyone says this dude's intelligence just blows you out of the water when you talk to the guy. Pretty cool all around.

    Trying to move OBJ

    Man, I'm so weary of people in our society spouting total bullshit and when rightly called out only doubling down on their stupidity. Way, way, too much of that in the world today.

    Anyone else sick of "analytics?"

    I’m glad you could use your thesaurus before attempting to use erudite. Big boy there. aint changing the subject my man, cause your two sentence comment literally didn’t say any of that. You said directly you didn’t want a Pete Carroll type and patently tried to suggest Pete was only lucky based on players on the team and not his coaching ability. Of course, I can explain to my newborn daughter ( and will) that resorting to calling people dumb in a conversation unadulterated is an obvious sign the person in fact has no argument. It shows simply the person is too uneducated and has to resort to child like tactics. You chose to do that which puts an obvious understanding of your knowledge of the matter and critical thinking. But hey, keep googling big boy words to sound educated. I’ll be excited to see them.

    Oh come the fuck on man. You can’t try to word smith out of saying something. Saying you don’t want a Pete Carroll type is saying you don’t want Pete Carroll. Don’t be obtuse.

    Anyone else sick of "analytics?"

    So you’re genuinely saying you wouldn’t want a coach with .630 winning percentage and two Super Bowls in a decade as your coach? I swear to God it’s like you people don’t watch the Browns on the field. Pete would have a statue if he had that same tenure in Cleveland.

    OBJ Continues to be OBJ

    Except surely you understand how different that is. A bad target employee doesn’t honor your coupon. A bad cop gives you a bogus felony or, ya know, murders you. That’s beyond common sense.

    OBJ Continues to be OBJ

    Nail on the head. by the way, now Barney fife from the video is declining to pursue charges. Amazing right? Almost like he is being protected from going through prosecution for the damming evidence he was harassing certain kids in that locker room. I respect police, hell im the son of a military family. I almost respect chain of command and authority to a fault. But you mofos need to consider cops aren’t some Gods walking among us anymore either. The vast majority are great people keeping us safe. But a small, non insignificant amount are like the rent a cop in the video who are nothing but bullies with a badge with vendettas against certain groups of people. Frankly, I’m damn tired of it. We can do better.
