Agree with all of this. The second half offense is what I remember from 2017. Not sure we did that in any sustained manner last year, save maybe one of the Giants games. First half was ugly;...

I'm not a fan either, but we usually do get the stop. That awful one versus the Titans? last year is what sticks in the memory. The problem is on 3rd and 15 we often give up 13 or 14 yards, making...

I'm guessing/hoping the frostbite thing and the helmet thing were genuine, but I suspect everything after that was Rosenhaus orchestration, since he obviously knew he had that Patriots offer...

Don't think it was anything like that. I think the bigger warning sign was that he argued back on Twitter (or maybe it was Instagram... some social media site) when some were criticizing him for the...

Eh... pretty good coach, awful GM. But remember his bar was Rich Kotite, who somehow failed to make this list. As bad as Rhodes was, Kotite was far worse in basically every respect.

That's counting his entire signing bonus for this year, where for salary cap purposes it will be averaged over four years. Wentz was similar.

Yep, and Elliott's representation is probably counting on similar leverage, if Jones does not cave earlier. It is a gamble, but he does have quite a bit of leverage at the moment. The danger is...

He was never going to really play until 2020 at any rate. Dillard was an unexpected opportunity, you have to take that. That means you now accept a setback with Mailata a little bit, since he now...

Top five is fine for Dak and Cooper (and probably far too much for Dak), but you can't just give Elliott a "top five" offer. They need to find a way to fit all three on the roster, but not sure any...

They are keeping Big V. If they keep nine, I think it would be Pryor (and an indication he did not improve from last year). Otherwise, keeping ten is a near lock barring injury, I think.

He's on the roster this year for sure. It was always going to be a two-year project, most likely. With Dillard unexpectedly becoming available, Mailata is now being cross-trained at RT. In other...

Sproles could make sense as a 4th RB, honestly, if no young RB steps up -- we don't have anyone like him....

I'm a bit confused. When the players restructure contracts like that, they convert future salary into a signing bonus -- in other words, they get the full amount up-front right then. It's only the...

Doug said they were going to cross-train Mailata at RT, and cross-train Big V at guard. Dillard is obviously the backup LT going forward. It will be interesting to see who is active on game days,...

Howie definitely read the market for Wiz well. I was surprised that he didn't get better offers than that.

Yeah, he's pretty much said the Eagles told him his role would be reduced from last year, and that is not what he is looking for. I think he'd be fine coming back if he played as much as he did last...

I'm not sure where an OT will fit on the roster, unless he is slotted for one of the inactive guys each week (and Mailata was that last year, and we haven't lost anyone at OT). If there is a guy...

Honestly, onside kicks became impossible last year once you could not get a running start. This will at least give a team a chance.
