      [2021] PFF Season Evaluation: Wide Receivers

      We had four players with 50+ catches last year, but only our TE had 65+. And I knew Cobb wasn't an elite WR. (Unlike another GM, who declared him a Top-5 talent) I just had to pay him like one to improve my offense. He'll be good for us. A much-needed signing for us. And his deal is a lot more team-friendly than you think. We had cap space to burn.

      Feels like he's got to be a relative, to some degree, of Cherokee Parks. cmv
    4. The Los Angeles Chargers are here to announce the signing of an exciting new wide receiver to add to the offense, Seattle Seahawks legend, Jim Umenyiora. On a more serious note, the team, whose struggles have been well-documented, focused their spending efforts on the offensive side of the ball, inking six free agents to deals so far this week. Most notably, Wide Receiver Greg Cobb was an early target for the team, and they gave him a lucrative 4-year deal to give the offense another needed weapon. Cobb is coming off of a monster season in which he grabbed 93 passes for an AFC-best 1436 yards and league-leading 16 touchdowns. Cobb also had the fewest drops and highest yards per catch among any player with 80 or more catches last year. The team does not expect Cobb to reach such lofty numbers without Brian Brown throwing to him, but Cobb will certainly be a factor for defenses to deal with, and open up even more space underneath for Scott Howard and M.L. Kriewaldt. Cobb's contract raised some eyebrows around the league, but the team was thrilled to bring him in at what they felt was a reasonable price. "Leftover cap space is just wasted money as far as I am concerned", remarked Owner and General Manager, Pumph, "I petitioned the league several times to send me the check for our unspent cap money the last few seasons, and have yet to receive anything. We get a game-changing type of player, and by the time his contract is over here, I think people will look back at what we paid him as a bargain - to help resurrect a moribund franchise, and give our offense some life? It's worth it. I won't call Greg Cobb the Reggie White of the Chargers, because I've never heard of that guy, but I guess I've heard that as a saying before - not sure what it means. Who is Reggie White, a pop star or something? I've been around the NFLHC a long time, and I have never heard of anyone with that name." The aforementioned Umenyiora was brought in on a one-year, minimum offer to challenge youngster Gerald Morrison for a starting position alongside Cobb, with Kriewaldt firmly entrenched as the team's slot receiver. The team sees Umenyiora as insurance, after losing multiple wide receivers to season-ending injuries last season. Umenyiora also does not have the history of drops that has plagued some other Charger receivers of the past. The team also addressed needs on the offensive line by agreeing to terms with two tackles, Bryan Green and John Marchetti. Green is slated to fill the starting right tackle position that was vacated when Demetrius Jett decided to move on, with Marchetti penciled-in as some inexpensive, added depth. Team leadership also remarked on Marchetti's positive attitude and locker room presence as a factor in his acquisition. Lastly, the team looked to their backfield, upgrading the fullback spot with veteran John Bills, and the much-maligned Frederick Chacon. Bills should help improve the run blocking in the hole for incumbent Brannon Austin. Bills also could be used as a viable short-yardage solution, as his three short touchdown runs last year could attest to. Chacon, who in four pro seasons has rushed for 3,449 yards, 35 touchdowns, and a 4.26 yards per carry average, despite being benched for most of last season, looks like a great complement to Austin. The Chargers dressed just two running backs for games last season, and when Austin got dinged up a bit, the team was left short. After being benched in favor of a declining Chad Dess across town for the Rams, Chacon seems to have a chip on his shoulder, and could even challenge Austin for touches in the Chargers' backfield. Mamadou Heard should continue to see action as the team's third down back, a role in which he has proven to be among the league's elite. While the team acknowledges that their 32nd-ranked defense still has some major, unaddressed holes, they were quick to point out that the draft is still right around the corner and that anything could happen. The Bolts still have some cap flexibility, and have been rumored to be involved in a number of trade talks. With the team currently holding five of the draft's top 66 picks, the dreary cloud that has been hanging over the Chargers' complex is still there, but it may just be the Los Angeles smog now. We can't tell.
    5. Ok. Just making sure there weren't any hidden spacing issues that affect your sim. We don't know how your end of the engine works, only what we see as outputs. Anything I export to excel is for my personal use, not for bringing it back in. No issues there. I can fix those spacing things in my personal data. Thanks for the quick response.
    6. @Soluna I noticed that when I cut and paste my roster into excel, there are ALL kinds of spacing issues (dozens of them) not just the ones you see on screen on the site. Hope that doesn't create some kind of problem because it seems it is extremely widespread. Just wanted to bring this to your attention in case you were not aware.

      QB Nick Stewart 6-4 211 [Jr] St. John Bosco (Bellflower, CA) XX of 5.0 [Pocket] Looks like the perfect protoge/replacement for Edmondson.
    8. I can't think of anything that I'd like ADDED. But I would like to see Ethnicity REMOVED. It is entirely unnecessary, and mildly offensive to me.
    9. Darman said that Rocketman said that he wouldnt be here for 2 weeks, so if he is gone for just that time don't have him inactive.

    12. For defensive tackles.... If I play a 3-4 and want my 2-gaps to start as the Nose tackle and primary backup, but have a 1-gap that I want to use in nickle and dime situations, would I then list the 1-gap as one of the top 2 DTs and the 2-gaps at nose? Or does a 3-4 team play a 3-3-5/3-2-6 for nickle and dime situations?

    14. Just about any worthy offensive lineman. We don't get stats, they don't get glory. Irl, Joe Jacoby blocked three different QB's to SuperBowl titles, and couldn't get in on 15 years on the ballot. Multiple pro bowls, all pros, and his offensive line even had a nickname. Still cant get in. Just proof that linemen are underappreciated and overlooked.
