flacco is in the second tier of qbs imo. one of the best arms in nfl history, great size and doesn't turn it over much despite throwing downfield and to covered receivers often.

I'm not even sure I buy this. I guess in "NFL History" it's possible in the context that today QBs typically have stronger arms and can throw the ball farther. Still, if you look at "recent" NFL, here are some other strong-armed QBs:

Joe Flacco
Jay Cutler
Matt Stafford (stop with the side-arm you pansy)
Brett Favre
Jeff George
JaMarcus Russell

That's just a small sample-set, but goes to show you that "strong arm" doesn't necessarily warrant a $20M per year contract. Those last two were added to show it isn't even enough in some cases to make you an NFL QB period.

I do agree, though, that he is in that "2nd tier" of QBs right now, with Matt Ryan, Tony Romo (yes), Philip Rivers (before he went lame the last 2 seasons), Ben Rothelisberger, and even Jay Cutler (IMO, but his numbers don't show this yet).

IMO there's only 4 QBs today that belong in that Top $20M tier:

Tom Brady
Peyton Manning
Drew Brees
Aaron Rodgers

This is apparently a fan map made by a county-by-county Facebook likes of NFL teams....



Gotta admit, definitely would've thought that the Cairo area would be Rams territory.

Looks like Urlacher carries a lot of weight in New Mexico.

PFF just released their 2012 o-line rankings: https://www.profootballfocus.com/blo...fensive-lines/

Bears 30th. I really hope this is Emery's #1 priority.

Cardinals dead last, and according to this article the Colts line is 31st. I didn't watch many of their games, but was their line really worse than ours? Seems hard to believe.

I dont buy the Colts at 31st, their O line was decent. They couldnt run much, maybe they really hit them for that, but I watched most every Colts game as Luck was my fantasy QB in a number of games, he really wasnt running for his life out there most games..

That is terrible. I thought Marino was super close with his family. I remember a story about them adopting a special needs kid. He then turned on that family, cheated on his wife, and gave up millions to make her go away.

Ouch.

Also, I know you guys don't care, but Donald Driver, one of the classiest players in recent memory, announced his retirement after 14 seasons.

Was watching Mike and Mike when he announced his retirement on the air... Always been a Driver fan, despite him being a Packer. Always seemed to play hard, kept his mouth shut and didn't complain.


6 1000+ yard seasons, 743 receptions, 10K+ yards, and 61 career TDs. Nice career for him.

And here it comes.

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/89...-safety-issues

The NLFPA ranting about player safety.

I am so sick and tired of this crap, this is nothing more then a ploy to get more money. Ed Reed said himself, he knows the damage being done to his body and he is ok with it because he signed up for it.

Great get all the concussion specialist you can get, when players flat out lie to medical personal about symptoms and their health, there is nothing anyone can do. So a player wants to tell the team, he is fine and feeling no concussion symptoms after getting a concussion, then play the following week, get another worse one and sue the league? Best of all who hit that player in the head, did he suffer a concussion from a beating from his owner or Goodell or did another one of his NFLPA members try to decapitate him over and over again?

Guess what NFL players, you might suffer head injuries in a game where you smash your head against another players head over and over, SHOCK! Players need to take responsibility for their actions, it's not the leagues fault when you lie over and over to the medical personal to keep playing. It would be one thing if the players where forthright about it but they all admit to lying about it so whose fault is it?

First time posting on these boards but I found this pretty funny. Walmart is already showing that the 49ers won the Superbowl.

Hester wants a trade now? Or may seek a trade? Honestly I don't think he has any value. Him leaving would probably have to come via a release IMO. And that's fine...him and Urlacher can both take a hike.

I wanted to get rid of Hester back when he was valuable. But noooooo

He's an X-Factor.

Yea, as it turns out, about a year ago you could have gotten a 4th rounder for him. The year before that, maybe a 3rd or 2nd. Now....6th is good?

I remember when they were talking about him returning a 1st. That was probably not true, but he most likely could have returned a 2nd.

At his PEAK we might have gotten a 2nd. Personally, I wouldn't have moved him back then. But two seasons ago I'd have certainly considered it, and we might have still gotten a 2/3 for him. Last offseason the price was rumored to be a 4th --- still worth it. Now? We will be LUCKY if we can get a 6th or a 7th for him, which is basically a moderate special teams guy down there. A 4th, you can still find some good bargains, but now the value is lost. It's almost worth just holding onto him as a KR/PR only at this point.

It's the Dante Hall effect. Once he started trying to be a receiver, he lost his returning skills.
