  1. I think Donnell is fucked. After years of injury observation with the Gints, you can just tell when they are blowing smoke up everyone's arses. Pity because he could catch a ball really well.
  2. We are thinking of doing that as it's about the only game we could realistically get tickets to Edit: Hang on...Fulham is playing away...we couldn't really make that then
  3. Got confirmation...I'm going!! Holy hot spaff batman!!! Unfcukingbelievable!!
  4. That's a bit strange, given the topic being discussed. Still, I'd say EA is happy for the moment at WR and RB. Thanks for the feedback though, I'm going to go and do something terrible to the cat now.
  5. I'd agree that probabilty dictates that Barber is due for an injury. I hope it never happens and his durabilty remains as good as it is. On the other hand I'd say that Jacobs IS going to get a shot at being the primary back if and when Barber hangs up his boots. I'd say that Barber just like Marshall Faulk will go into the 3rd down role later in his career and stay with the Giants his entire career. As soon as Jacobs takes the starting role we need to address this area. Either because Jacobs doesn't do the business or simply because you need a back up to the starter in this area.
  6. As I said Team have to be under the cap at the start of the league year. 1st of March usually. Once that date passed then they don't have to be under the cap. Hence cash over cap. Read up about the CBA negotiations and it is explained better than I can.
  7. Thanks for the reply gmenroc. I'd say we are certainly looking at DT and LB in the draft. CB and Safety seem to have been adderssed using FA. That gives us Madison, Webster, Delotch, Walker, McQuarters and maybe Peterson at CB. Wilson, Harris and Butler at Safety. Top 3 picks go on LB's and a DT plus later rounds for another Safety and a CB if needed.
  8. I'm not sure why we signed McQuarters AND Morton. They do the same job!! Anyone got an idea?
  9. And as I found out reading about the CBA negotiations there is a substantial amount of "Cash over Cap" money used by teams with heaps of cash. As long as they are under the cap on the 1st of March each year then after that date they can go back over it to a certain degree. That was why the big money teams seem to be able to continue signing people. What happns though is they go on a Cut Bing just before the 1st of March. It is not very stable for the team but it works.
  10. Good to know the offences were rated about the same. I'll take your word on it. In my opinion loosing Joseph was a blow, I want to say that right now. However he was only one of many players to be lost from the starting line up in the various games. You have to admit that all those stats are affected by losing 3 LB's plus Grierson being injured and still playing? No? For me Joseph is about a 30% proportion of the over impact you mentioned, with Pierce being about another 40%, plus Tobor and Emmons another 30% between them. If you could name the starting line-ups along
  11. I hate to piss on the parade but the only way this analysis works Money is if the rest of the players on defence are exactly the same. And I don't think they were. The only way to give a true reflection of losing Joseph is to factor in all the other injuries that hit the defence. If you do that then he will become an even smaller proportion of the overall number decline. Equally you would have to check how the opposition offences were ranked.
  12. I just fucking love that!! And that is exactly what I would do. I'd even wait longer. There will be even more DT on the market on Monday. Clancy needs to realise that this year is not a leverage year for players that perform well in a certain system. Which he is in my opinion. If he was not in a "rotation" team for DT then he would get hammered over the length of a season. He's quick...really quick, but he is not a "BIG" DT....if he asks for even 5 bucks too much then I'd ask him to join the FA pool of DT's. ...then have a straight scotch and what the blood in the streets for a
  13. Ok guys so we are a day further along and FA has been delayed until Monday. This is getting very interesting. Echo, You really don't seem to like owners hey I personally think the NFL is much better than Baseball and the NBL. I stopped watching the NBL because of the whole labour striking and lack of cap. As for baseball, well you have no real competition due to the economics of the situation...and ECONOMICS should not be preventing competition...it is after all a SPORT not a goddamn Pty/Ltd internationally listed company. I'm not saying that these sports aren't a b
  14. This link from NFL.com is exactly what I was trying to say. Player need to realise
  15. It good to see EA say this on BBI. "We don't know the cap count," Accorsi said. "We're preparing for every possibility. I'm preparing for the worst case. We have a plan for every number in one-half a percentage point increments. We know what we'll do if it's $92 (million), we know if we know if it's $92.5 (million), all the way up. We've been prepared all along." That is very comforting.
