Yeah Tampa was kicking the tires on that loon Incognito. They obviously thought better of it.

 

There are always a bunch of teams that get decimated lines during the course of the season. The Incognito stuff has been off the back pages for a while. If signing Incognito helps a team not get its prized QB killed...they'll do it. He will be on an NFL roster when this season ends.

No doubt about it. Someone will sign him.

Dalton's extension includes a $12 million signing bonus and a $5 million roster bonus. The contract has a base value of $96 million, and he can earn $19 million more through incentives.

 

 

Even $16 million a year for above average is still absurdity......

 

 

Generally I'd agree this gave me a little pause about Dalton however:

Peyton's first three years might as well have taken place on a different planet, the way the game is played now.  1998 might as well be 1888.  Peyton's first season drags down his overall numbers in that three-year sample as well...he threw 26 TD and 28 INT his rookie year (on a 3-13 Colts team).  Andy Dalton's been pretty good overall in three seasons, never great, while Manning (despite issues that always seem to plague him in big games) was already showing signs of being able to put up big numbers in his third season.  I think it's a flawed comparison.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not.

BB's taking some flak for this in the local media...people up there are joking and wondering if he's become obsessed with former Rutgers players.  It's one of those issues that people will write about and have takes on until the season gets going.  But BB will get a lot of criticism if this doesn't work out.

lol why would BB care about getting Rutgers players?  I guess maybe his buddy Schiano would put in a good word for them since he was there till the last couple years but still.  Maybe it's become like Lou bringing back ex-Devils, a predictable meme.

BB's son also attended Rutgers, which adds to the speculation about his fascination with Rutgers guys.

Former Pats QB Ryan Mallett traded to the Texans for a conditional 7th-rounder (becomes a 6th-rounder if he takes 40% of the Texans' snaps).

 

Some fans are saying that the Pats using up a 3rd-rounder to draft Mallett in 2011 was a waste, but I understand why they did it.  Mallett was projected as a first-rounder by some, and I think the Pats figured they had a potential starter who wouldn't cost much in terms of $$$ who might be able to step in if Brady ever got hurt (this obviously never happened).  They also probably hoped, if Mallett ever lit it up in preseason, a team might be willing to cough up a 2nd or even a 1st-round pick, which obviously also never happened...Mallett never really looked terribly good in most of his preseason appearances (a lot of nose-into-the-grounds on short throws), and it took all of a couple of games for Jimmy Garopollo to knock Mallett down to the #3 QB on their depth chart...as he didn't really have any further value to the Pats, they got what they could for him.  It was pretty clear that Mallett had a minimal shot to ever take over for Brady anyway, barring Brady suffering a serious injury...Garopollo has a much better chance to be the Patriot QB of the future.

 

At any rate, the fact that he was a 3rd-rounder draft choice with no prior NFL track record meant the Pats didn't have to pay him much to hold a clipboard, so in terms of saving money on the backup QB position, it was a win for the Pats, even if they didn't get much back for him.

I knew Mallett was a goner. Garoppolo looked better the other night than Mallett ever did in three years.

He was a goner when Garoppolo was drafted in the second round.  I think BB was hoping Mallett would finally show something this preseason (possibly leading to a middle-round pick coming back), but Garoppolo just played far better right from the start.  He needed the reps, and that was more important than trying to up Mallett's trade value...if anything happens to Brady, it's the Garoppolo show.

Best defensive player in the NFL the last three years, Watt, is paid like it. The most guaranteed to a DE ever to! Six years, $100 million, $51 of it guaranteed!
