New year, new QBs everywhere....

Free agency is upon us which means the off-season has begun.

Seahawks gonna go 6-10. Should be able to squeeze past Arizona for 3rd place in the NFC West.

I knew this rebuild was going to come eventually, which is why I am eternally bitter at Darrell Bevell and Tom Cable for wasting the best years of the defense with the abortion of an offensive line they kept running out there year after year. And also for throwing a goddamned slant from the 1 yard line in the Super Bowl...

And all the joy of anticipation Cleveland was starting to accumulate suddenly went full stop...

This has been the craziest NFL free agency I've seen in a while, and almost none of it has come from Dan Snyder.

Kirk Cousins to Minnesota is a good fit. He's not going to have to do too much to win there and I think he'll be an upgrade over Case Keenum. It's still Minnesota so I don't think they will break the curse but they will be the powerhouse team in the NFC North, especially if Rodgers gets killed again. Thanks to not having Jordy Nelson and the Ghost of Jimmy Graham's Past, I think there's a good chance not only does that happen, but we get to experience the joy of DESHONE KIZER starting under center. And our defense will still be a giant fail boat. Neither Detroit nor Chicago will be all that good unless something major changes.

Denver having to settle for Case Keenum is all sorts of  awesome, for real Not that he won't be better than the idiots they trotted out there last year IN THEORY, though in practice I've adopted a wait and see attitude. Sam Bradford and Mike Glennon will apparently shepherd the Arizona Cardinals back into abject incompetence just in time to see Larry Fitzgerald retire next year without the ring he deserves. KC is a wild card because Andy Reid has a knack for getting good QB play out of nothing but then he also traded Donovan McNabb to usher in the era of KEVIN KOLB. I have no idea what to make of the Re-Gruden-ed Raiders.

I do know with all the QB shuffling that has gone on so far, and all the teams who still need a QB and have extra draft picks, the NFL draft will be a goddamn whirlwind of trades. A fuckload of teams will be falling all over themselves to try to get into the top 5.

It seems like all of the teams have a "decent" backup plan that could end up beating out any of these 5 young stud QBs (for a while, at least).  I would not be surprised to see trades and see 5 QBs in the first 6 picks, or to see only 2 go in the first 6 with minimal trading...

I, for one, am completely burnt out of draft news/mocks/shit talking. Really starting to feel the whole 'pushing the draft to later in the year so we have NFL in the news all the time' is not doing them any good anymore. I'm going to be tuning out earlier next year because this is just tiring.

*fun note, taking all the mock drafts from march till now, sees the Browns taking each of the top 5 quarterbacks, Chubb, Barkley, and Nelson no.1. At this point, why bother putting out a mock?

Truth.

I saw a mock I enjoyed with the Giants trading down from 2 to 3 (Jets want their QB), 3 to 5 (Denver steps ahead of Cleveland to get Barkley), 5 to 12 (Buffalo want their QB) and ends up turning the 2nd overall pick into 3 first round picks, 3 second round picks and a third round pick (spread over 2 years) - Giving them 13 picks in the first 3 rounds in 2018 and 19.  They are able to execute a massive rebuild in a short time.  In that draft, they even got Mayfield at 12, although he seems to be rising up the boards and I don't expect him to last that long.  I'm not a Giants fan, but that would be an interesting story to see unfold.

Dez Bryant may be going to the Giants to be their #2 receiver.  Interesting pairing with him and Odell Beckham.

Dez is one of those players who was overrated not because of talent but because he never quite became the dominant receiver everyone expected. Early years it was maturity issues, his middle years were because the Cowboys SUCKED IT hard and his QB was always fucking hurt, leading to him being a good receiver on a bad team catching passes from the scrubs of the scrubs. Injuries have hit him pretty hard the last few years, as well as the Cowboys turning into a run first team. If he could stay healthy, I'm sure he'd improve the Giants provided they actually find an O-line. Also, to see him get revenge on JERRAH would be fun.
