    Re: NFL 2014

    These guys are good. Too many numbers right where you think teams would be. Just a quick look and here is what I would bet.

    Broncos Over 11.5
    Pats over 10.5
    Steelers under 8.5
    Dolphins under 8.0

    If I had to, Bengals Over 9. Still think they are the class of the AFC North. Taking emotions out of the equation I think they are at least a 10 win team. Two numbers I found very interesting Bills 6.5 and Texans 7.5. Vegas thinks a lot of those teams.

    Broncos play the NFC West plus a 1st Place schedule.

    I'll do the ones I follow the Most AFC West:
    Oakland I take the over, even with the ridiculous schedule I easily see this team winning 6-8
    Denver I'd take the under. I still see them being the 2003 Raiders where they get old and QUICKLY.
    Kansas City feasted on a soft schedule and got exposed later, also not a fan of their FA or draft. Under 8.
    San Diego if there is a dark horse to bet in the AFC West its SD, I haven't looked at their full schedule but I expect them to be 2nd in the division this year.

    Agree with all of this.

    Re: NFL 2014

    The Giants are going to try to decrease the number of sacks and interceptions of Eli Manning by turning him into a 3-step drop passer under a new Offense...

    From Rotoworld w/ Rotoworld comments:

    The Giants' offense is utilizing three-receiver packages "on almost every play" during OTAs.

    Beat writer Jordan Raanan described new OC Ben McAdoo's scheme as "a spread-'em-out offense that utilizes a "ton" of screen passes, quick-timing horizontal pass patterns, and three-step drops. It's much different from OC Kevin Gilbride's old vertical attack, and resembles the Packers' system. Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham will be the outside wideouts, with Victor Cruz in the slot.

    Source: Newark Star-Ledger


    ...other Giants news (from Rotoworld)...

    NFL suspended Giants S Will Hill six games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

    Hill tried appealing the ban, but came up short and he'll be sidelined until Week 7. Hill has now been suspended three times since being signed by the Giants as a UDFA out of Florida in 2012. A high-impact performer when available for games, 24-year-old Hill graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 2 overall safety in 2013, behind only Devin McCourty. The Giants will enter Week 1 with Stevie Brown starting at free safety, and Antrel Rolle on the strong side.


    Giants released QB Josh Freeman.

    He lasted just six weeks with the team. Freeman was never a good fit for new Giants OC Ben McAdoo's quick-hitting West Coast offense in the first place. The G-Men will move forward with Ryan Nassib and Curtis Painter behind Eli Manning, who recovered ahead of schedule from ankle surgery and is taking part in OTAs. Still only 26 years old, Freeman is just two seasons removed from a 27:17 TD-to-INT ratio campaign with the Buccaneers. Off-field and work-ethic question marks threaten to torpedo Freeman's once-promising NFL career.

    OTA's can be rough. You just hope you get through them unscathed. But, they are necessary, in order to implement the complicated playbooks of the never-ending revolving doors of Offensive and Defensive Coordinators, along with rosters changing 20-25% nearly every season.

    From Rotoworld w/ Rotoworld comments:

    The extent of Giants MLB Jon Beason's injury is a torn ligament and fractured sesamoid bone in his right foot.

    The New York Daily News believes Beason could miss "Opening Day, and maybe more," after receiving a 12-week recovery timetable. A team source said the Giants expect Beason to "need surgery and at least three months to recover." In an ideal world, Beason would resume practicing just before Week 1, although that's optimistic. The Giants will look at Mark Herzlich, Jameel McClain, and rookie Devon Kennard as short-term replacements. As the injury occurred before training camp, Beason will be eligible for the PUP list. It's a blow to the Giants' defense, albeit not nearly as severe as the Cowboys' loss of Sean Lee (ACL), or Falcons ILB Sean Weatherspoon's torn Achilles' tendon.

    Source: New York Daily News


    If they'd get rid of half of the useless pre-season games (that gouge the season-ticket holders to death), there'd be more time in training camp to conduct practices, making OTA's less dangerous as they themselves could be scaled down on the physical end of things.

    Re: NFL 2014

    From Rotoworld w/ Rotoworld comments:

    Speaking Thursday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said second-year RB Johnathan Franklin (neck) will "not be back with us."

    McCarthy said the organization will have a lengthier statement on Friday. It appears Franklin will either be waived/injured or retire. The Pack notoriously have the league's most cautious medical staff, so it's unclear if it's simply the team throwing in the towel on Franklin's career, or Franklin himself. Either way, it's crushing news for a player who came out of UCLA with a considerable amount of upside last year. Franklin's status will be updated no later than Friday.

    From Rotoworld w/ Rotoworld comments:

    NFL suspended Eagles RT Lane Johnson four games for violating the league's policy against performance-enhancing drugs.

    Perhaps not-so-ironically, our last update on Johnson was regarding his "bulked up" frame this offseason. The Eagles signed Allen Barbre to a three-year extension earlier this month, and he figures to get the first crack at replacing Johnson at right tackle. The No. 4 overall pick in the 2013 draft, Johnson had an outstanding rookie year as a run blocker, but coughed up ten sacks in pass protection. Johnson will miss games against Jacksonville, Indianapolis, Washington, and San Francisco. He'll be eligible to return in Week 5.

    Buffalo just can't catch a break. I feel bad for them.

    From Rotoworld w/ Rotoworld comments:

    Bills WLB Kiko Alonso tore his ACL while working out and is expected to miss the season.

    It's a massive loss for a Bills defense that quietly ranked 10th in the league last year and was trending up. The versatile and athletic Alonso played every single snap during his standout rookie campaign, dominating in coverage and coming second in Defensive Rookie of the Year voting. He's been slapped with a 7-9 month recovery timetable and will likely be placed on injured reserve shortly. Next up at weak-side linebacker as the Bills shift to a 4-3 would be Nigel Bradham or Preston Brown.

    Can someone tell me what Odell Thurman did?

    The reason I ask about him is I am wondering why Ray Rice and Aldon Smith have not been suspended yet for at least half the season while Odell Thurman went the way of Amelia Earhart as fast as you could spit.

    I can't see Gordon playing another snap in the NFL.

    Good-bye about $70M, and as you said, he'll be dead before he's 30 because he'll be chasing illegaly that $70M he threw away.


    From Rotoworld w/ Rotoworld comments:

    Following his Saturday morning DWI arrest, suspended Browns WR Josh Gordon was bailed out of jail by Haydn "Fats" Thomas, a convicted felon.

    Thomas, 39, has four aliases and an "extensive criminal background," including five known arrests in five different North Carolina counties. "Many of his charges are drug and gun related," although Thomas has somehow never served prison time. Thomas' last reported arrest came in December 2012, when he was charged with three felony marijuana violations and possession of a firearm.

    Just because Johnny Manziel was allegedly rolling a dollar bill in the bathroom does not mean he was doing cocaine. (with picture)

    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    It was a $20.


    Right....

    Rolling $20 bills in a bathroom is a normal thing one does every day. There couldn't possibly be drugs involved. Not possible. Not with a person of his outstanding reputation.

    Rolling the $20 doesn't mean he was doing the snorting, but somebody he handed the bill to after this photo was taken certainly was snorting something. Doubt if they were cleaning the bathroom by blowing through the bill.
