2022 NFL Thread
« on: May 05, 2022, 12:28:05 PM »
did not realize this, but Browns traded for WR Amari Cooper for a lousy 5th round pick. Amari Cooper is still only 27 years old and is more than capable of being a 1,000 yard receiver.

Depending on when they get DeShaun Watson back, they could wind up being the best offense in the NFL. Watson is one of the best QB's in the NFL- when playing and not suspended. They have as good a 1-2 punch as there is at RB in the NFL with Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. The interior of their OL is rock solid, and depending on how Jedrick Wills and Jack Conklin bounce from injuries they could have a top flight OL in 2022. Their WR room just added Amari Cooper and they stole David Bell from Purdue n the 3rd round- and Donovan Peoples-Jones is really talented athlete who has been making strides. 


Whenever they get Watson back and if their tackles can stay healthy- that offense is going to be straight up nasty.

Cooper is a nice pickup, but I'm not sure he is a legitimate #1 WR.  And then DPJ probably isn't a #2 WR.  I'm pretty optimistic about David Bell as a potential #3 / slot guy, but his combine results were pretty rough.  I think it is an improvement on what they had last year, but I'd still say it's a below average WR group.

Watson will make every single one of those WR's better. Cooper had been playing with a very good, but somewhat limited QB in Dak Prescott imo. Watson is a lot better than Dak Prescott. Cooper can easily get back to having 1,110-1,200 yard seasons with DeShaun Watson imo. They don't need him to be a 1,500+ yard WR- Watson will spread the ball around and their running game will dominate. Not to mention they'll have Kareem Hunt who will flourish in the pass game like he did in KC with Watson as well- RB's that can catch that ball are at a premium in todays NFL.

DPJ is as athletic as it gets, and they don't need him carry the WR corps- they just need to use that athleticism to make a couple big chunk plays a game. And he will get better playing with Watson- who is like a brand new 2022 Ferrari compared to Baker Mayfield who is like a busted up '76 Pinto. 

Don't give a sh*t about the combine. David Bell was the best WR in the B1G last year and his hands and route running are ridiculous. He will be a chain mover and WAY better than anyone realizes. He'll play right away- he is NFL ready in terms of his route running and hands. He'll wind up being there #2 and move the chains- and DPJ will wind up being a big play guy for them who is capable of hitting the home run every once in awhile.

DeShaun Watson is one of the top 5 QB's in the NFL when he's playing. Baker Mayfield wasn't anywhere near that universe. Baker Mayfield kinda sucks. All those skill guys are going to get a lot better just by playing with DeShaun Watson.

depends on the health of the tackles and when they'll actually get to play Watson- but they could wind up being the top team in the AFC North and making a real playoff run in 2022 or 2023.

NY Jets 1st round draft pick Sauce Gardner's contract details released, he's going to be losing about half his money in taxes between federal income, NY state, and NYC city taxes.

Why the hell would anyone want to live in New York or California again?

this is pretty wild...every major sports all-time earner was a #1 overall draft pick....except for...NFL and Tom Brady at pick 199.

And he's about to get $40 million a year for a decade, without any experience.  About time he levels up from his horse face wife

the most shocking thing about that graphic isn't Brady's salary, it's Jim Rome's. WTF!?!? $30 million a year for Jim Rome? WHAT?

I'm kinda with you. Like she's obviously not an ugly woman, but she was maybe the biggest super model the world has ever seen. HOW? There were/are models 100000000x hotter than she ever was even at her peak.

Feels like someone overpaid for him 20 years ago when he was relevant, and nobody has checked the books.  I couldn't even tell you where he was on. There are plenty of terrible talking heads, that are at least relevant. I don't think I've seen Jim Rome in 15 years

All I can ever think of with Jim Rome is his little scuffle with Jim Everett.
