    I mean why should teams have 1 RB that gets nearly all the carries? All you are doing is setting yourself up for a Leveon/Gordon/Gurley scenario where they demand big money. And look what was left in Gurley's tank last playoffs.

    If Michel shows hes better at catching the ball hes gonna take some targets from White since we are going to want to pound Harris.

    Kinda expected to see it. Harry will be a nice little late season injection in the arm. Wouldn’t expect too much production due to the lack of reps with Brady but should be able to make a few big plays

    IRing Harry is akin to making him a redshirt. It'll allow him to get up to speed with the system and Meyers/Thomas can carry the 3/4 WR roles until then. Harry being eligible to return gives us good insurance in case Gordon relapses in the bye week again.

    It’s the Raiders. I expect them to be stupid and would be worried if they did something Norman’s for a change

    Holy crap, Jared Goff signed a monster contract. Four years, $134 million total, $110 million guaranteed. He's not even that good!

    They kinda have to.

    It’s such a hard position to find somebody that’s even above average- when you have a 25 year old QB who is good not great you don’t have much of a choice but to lock him up for big money and hope he continues to improve

    I mean look at the QB carousel that franchise had before him. He’s their best QB since Bulger (yuck)

    Bulger, Boller, Null, Bradford, Feeley, Clemens, Davis, Hill, Foles, Keenum over the last decade. You get a guy like Goff and he looks like a hero by comparison

    He's a middle ten QB in this league that has been coached up by McVay, but I'd still rather give him that deal than what Dallas is going to have to fork over for Dak. That deal is going to be far worse because Prescott is a bad QB with a great line and great RB.

    I totally agree, it just sucks when that guy is only pretty good. All of a sudden keeping the talent around (which the Rams have actually done a great job doing) becomes far more difficult.

    I think that's an awful deal. If McVay can coach up a mediocre QB like Goff, what would he do with a legitimately good quarterback?

    That's a huge amount of money for someone who isn't anything special.

    Goff must have the greatest agent in the history of agenting....

    This is a good point too. Dak is garbage.

    Yup, its kind of like what we saw with Andy Dalton for a bit. He was a solid QB for a bit but he was in that awkward spot- do you punt on having a solid Qb and hope for the best in order To keep the rest of your key players or do you pay the guy who isn’t good enough to make players around him better or win a SB without a sensational D a **** ton of money and compromise the structure of your roster to do so? It really is a tough call

    If I was a Rams fan I would’ve preferred they trade Goff for a bunch of high end picks and then draft another QB to coach up and hope for the best with

    Good luck you guys, as a huge Steelers fan I really am happy that they got rid of the cry baby in Brown.
    The pick of Devin Bush as a middle linebacker to take over from one of my old favorites Shazier made me a happy guy as well.
    Week one starts tomorrow, woooo hooo.

    I hope the Steelers go 8 and 8 forever so they don't get a good draft pick or make the playoffs, and also that they never fire Tomlin. I wish you and your fellow fans nothing but ill will and despair for all of eternity.

    Haha, I love it.

    Believe me the feeling is mutual, you guys have had it way to good for way to long.
    Brady can only have a few more years in him, and then blamo, your the Jets.

    Pittsburgh should be razed, then the ash-covered ground salted so nothing may ever grow there again.

    TBQH with all the heavy industry and coal/steel mills for most of the twentieth century, they're probably already at "nothing may ever grow there again" territory.
