  1. Suh's rookie deal was the last draft before the new CBA was agreed upon. The Lions will definitely gain some cap space if Suh walks, but as I understand it, he'll count for $9.7 million against the cap next year if he walks thanks to the restructurings you alluded to.
  2. Jahlil Okafor looks legit. I haven't seen Mudiay play since DirecTV doesn't show Guangdong games, but he looks good on the highlight reel. After that, meh. I'm not betting on a #1 or #2 pick especially when the cynical side of me feels like the league is going to throw the Knicks a bone in the lotto. Give me competitive basketball.
  3. To do that as a rookie when your top receivers are James Jones and Andre Holmes and you have no rushing threat outside of a few good games by Latavius Murray...that's pretty solid. Those are pretty similar numbers to what Stafford put up this season (60.3 completion percentage, 22 TDs, 12 INTs) and significantly better than the numbers Stafford put up his rookie season (53.3% completion percentage, 13 TDs, 20 INTs) though he was admittedly two years younger than Carr was as a rookie. I don't know if I'm taking him over Stafford, but it's not outlandish.
  4. Stafford's contract isn't that bad when you consider the going rate for QBs these days. He's in line with Carson Palmer, Alex Smith, Eli Manning, and Andy Dalton from an AAV standpoint. That's just the cost of doing business at the QB position.
  5. Derek Carr had a pretty solid rookie season without a whole lot of help especially at receiver. It's not outlandish. I'll only take issue with a yes for Brady, but no on Manning and Brees? Seems inconsistent. Matt Ryan is probably a yes too.
  6. I understand you said major college record, but we can't just ignore his 29-6 record at San Diego. Even if you do, how about some context on that college record? The three years prior to Harbaugh taking the job, Stanford was 10-24 including a 1-11 record the year immediately preceding the Harbaugh era. In his first year, he manages arguably the greatest upset in the history of CFB against #1 USC as a 41-point underdog. Three years later, Stanford is 12-1 and in the Orange Bowl. After he left for the NFL, Stanford proceeded to go 11-2, 12-2, and 11-3 with two Pac-12 championships under Shaw with Harbaugh's recruits. This is an upper echelon coach at both the NFL and college level. It is an absolute grand slam for Michigan which they needed to stop their slide into irrelevance and to compete against Meyer and Dantonio.
  7. Nevin Lawson, CB, Utah State, NFL Draft - CBSSports.com - NFLDraftScout.com CBS Sports had him as a 3rd-4th rounder.
  8. Career high completion percentage, tied for career high passer rating, most TDs thrown since his age 27 season, career low INT %, and a playoff berth. All of this coming in the wake of Rivers' worst two seasons in his career. David Shaw is my pipe dream with O'Brien and Whisenhunt as my more realistic options.

  10. I can't believe we didn't at least get Rendon. 2 years of Doug Fister at a bargain price relative to some of this money being thrown around for mediocre pitching in FA has to be worth more than that.
  11. Three weeks in, Ziggy Ansah looks like the real deal. He's been very disruptive.
  12. No way Hank and Gomey can walk away from this one.
  13. This game really sums up what it's like to be a Lions fan. Wow.
