  1. Guys who I think should start: Kamau Davis- It would honestly be a shock to me if he wasn't starting next season. With a pretty barren QB class and several teams in desperate need of a starter, Kamau's winning resume and respectable stats mean he's virtually a lock to be in a QB1 spot next season unless Soluna thinks he'd rather have the ultra-quality QB2. Erasmus McCready- Another past starter who is way too high quality of a qb2 right now, McCready has always looked pretty decent and he's another guy I really think ought to find himself at the helm next year. If he gets the starting nod over Wheeler next year, replace McCready with Wheeler. Both should be starting. Guys who I think could maybe start: James Dale - Has looked decent for the Jets. Nothing special, and I probably wouldn't test it myself, but maybe there's starter potential here. Mike Thomas - He seems like a pretty popular pick, and for decent reason. He doesn't have much of a past in the NFL but what flashes he has shown have been pretty damn good. Alex Rodgers - Of course I had to have one homer pick. In his limited playing time since his disastrous rookie year he's actually looked straight up good, albeit versus questionable opposition. Andrew Davis - Homering for Andrew Davis is a clause in my contract.
  2. To Pumph: How much will your two assistants assist in the actual everyday running of the team? Will they have a major influence with things like gameplans and the draft or will they be in a more reserved role, where they only passively assist the team by scouting and gathering data? How likely is it that you promote one of them to a major role within the org before the next season begins? To Flutie and bmlig: The Chargers are an org that most would agree is in a pretty bad position right now. How quickly do you think the team can return to playoff relevancy? What steps will you take to ensure a successful long term strategy when considering that you are both in highly temporary positions?

  4. great article man
  5. I feel like it is worthy of discussion for this at least though I am biased; Colorado vs Nebraska in 2018 was the best game I coached on this site easily. Why? The #2 ranked team losing to unranked Colorado. A back and forth game culminating in a 3rd and 4th quarter comeback from 17-31 which took the game to overtime. Two goal line stands in the first overtime, leading to two field goals...if either had been a touchdown the game would have presumably ended. David Medley, former #1 overall recruit, picks up a sack and the clutchest fumble recovery of all time in 2OT to set up Colorado to win the game on a field goal. High powered offenses combining for nearly 800 yards. Here it is in full for those interested:

  8. Draft is easily my favorite part of the site. I think my favorite moment in retrospect was actually the late 1st round of the 2020 draft. We weren't 100% sure what we were going to do coming into the draft but we acknowledged that we might take Brett Fisher if he was available. We ended up trading down from #22 to #29 because we weren't totally sure of the available prospects heading into that #22 pick and we figured if we wanted to take Fisher we could probably do so at 29. Of course, once we made the trade down, I fell almost irrationally in love with Fisher. I kept checking and double checking everything on him and started wanting him more and more, and as it got closer to our pick I started getting really nervous about someone jumping us for him, especially the Titans. I kind of panicked and started initiating trade talks with people, trying to move up and down simultaneously while trying to keep TheSam and Monark updated on the situation. It was absolute chaos. I think at one point I had something like 8 different tabs open on the GM chat, trying to make plans for every eventuality while also trying to throw the Titans off by pretending to want to trade down below them. I guess it didn't quite work but it didn't matter because in the end nobody ahead of us wanted to trade down, so the Titans couldn't jump us, and we ended up getting Fisher. Most stressful moment on the site for me by far, but afterwords the relief I felt that we had gotten our guy was awesome.
  9. Congrats Jieret. A couple questions: To Jieret, what do you think of the current Denver quarterback situation? Will you be confident going into next season with Jennings as your starter? To Bingo, what role will you take in the organization as owner with that being your only responsibility?

  12. Ryan Harris absent? He played Wake but 300 yards and 4 TDs is still pretty impressive.
  13. lol gg to you too kendrick <3
  14. Thanks to everyone for the advice last week, changes I made looked pretty good tonight.

  18. San Jose State 6-66 USC And after yet another horrible disappointment with the loss to Notre Dame, Dream knew he had to take desperate measures, and to seek redemption he went into the underworld. "Make me a good coach," he asked of Satan. Satan replied, "I shall, but you know that I must take something in return". "Anything, dark lord" "I shall take...your brother's manhood." Satan said broodingly. "But...my lord, such a thing does not exist!" Dream exclaimed. "That is because I took it retroactively. You see, Dream, I knew long ago that you would come to me for assistance. So I took Dean's manhood in advance. This way he will never know what it is that he is missing." "Thank you dark lord," Dream said as he returned to the land of mortals. And thus began the dark ages where Dream's USC won 666 straight national titles.
  19. So obviously this is an opinion piece so I'm not going to say it's by any means wrong, but I will say I have different feelings about a few of these teams and that's at least kind of worth discussing. Panthers 2, Packers 4 only one week after the Packers beat the Panthers by 16. While both have one loss the H2H makes me think the Packers get the edge since their SOS is at least comparable imo. I think you're overrating Indianapolis from what we've seen so far. They are 0-3 versus teams that are over .500. Atlanta and Miami have both looked wholly unimpressive as of late. I think both are overrated here considering that power rankings generally have a built in recency bias. I don't really understand your ranking of the AFC North with how the teams are placed in relation to one another. The Browns and the Bengals have had extremely easy strength of schedules while the Steelers and Ravens have had really pretty difficult schedules thus far. The whole division is a clusterfuck anyways but I was surprised to see us and Pitt in a lower tier than Cincy and Cleveland, I actually thought you'd just have a tier called "AFC North" from 17-20 or so, lol. Titans are overrated here I think. They've played a lot of awful teams for those 3 wins, though I guess I can't throw too much shade since we barely beat them. Patriots just benched their QB and have 2 wins, I'm not sure they're ahead of that many teams. Again these are just my opinions, I think the rankings as a whole were pretty good, but these all stuck out to me as something I disagreed with so I figured I might as write this because, hey, what's the point of power rankings if not to disagree with them?
  20. USC. I grew up near LA and it's always been my favorite FBS college football team (obviously Davis takes precedence now but it's FCS). I grew up during the Pete Carroll era and I got into the team because of Reggie Bush and never looked back. It sometimes sucks cuz I'm pretty much the only active USC fan that I know of when there are a ton of Notre Dame fans, but sometimes it's also kinda cool, not gonna lie, it was pretty awesome to watch the Rose Bowl this past year and feel like the villain because the entire site almost was rooting for Penn State, especially when USC made the crazy ass comeback. I don't think I'd leave Fresno until I think they're in a good place, which obviously won't be for at least a few seasons. It's never been my intention to quit a team because I think it's bad, rather I'd say I enjoy challenges and challenging myself to get better at both recruiting and coaching.
  21. The entire AFC North now has 4 wins after 9 weeks.
