    I don't get why the NFL is so obsessed with twisting themselves into knots to avoid just making the easy fix of both teams must get one possession in OT and after that the team with the lead wins, or if it's still tied it goes to full sudden death.

    Every system has flaws. If both teams get the ball, the team going second then becomes the team with the huge advantage. They know what the other team scored, so they know whether to always go for it on 4th down, if they only need a field goal then they can play more passive, etc. College data backs this up, the team going second in their OTs has the advantage.

    I would think college rules with a snake order would be the most fair, but still would have flaws. As in team A goes on offence then team B. If still tied B goes first then A and so forth. Would at leats alleviate how much of advantage the team going second has.

    Slowly but surely, Mickey Loomis is tackling the cap problem, a number of restructures and releases in the past week. It is a shame to see Morstead released, but he made the onside kick, he's a Saint for life.

    If they can bring back Patrick Peterson to take advantage of the better rush and Haason Reddick too, then you might have something going in that regard.

    Still, usually following some other team's blue print is not what's going to work. It never worked for teams trying to follow the Patriots either.
    Tampa's offense put up the third most points in the league last year. They are a whole heck of a lot better than "half-decent".

    This was an interesting read: https://touchdownwire.usatoday.com/2...re-of-offense/

    Basically breaking down some recent trends in offenses and defenses and their tactics and where things might be going.

    Finally happened. Dak signed long term. Cowboys could have saved millions if they had just done this last year or the year before.

    Only 4 years and a no tag clause. His agent set him up for another big payday after the new tv contracts assuming he comes back completely healthy.

    I think I have figured out that if I want to know what is going to happen this off-season. I'll just look at the opposite of what John Clayton says. Barely on his new job and is already 0-3 on his reports.

    I propose to eliminate ties altogether. In overtime, if the game is still tied after one full possession by each time, the game goes into a "shootout" mode. In a shootout, each team takes turns trying a 2 point conversion until there is a winner. (Think baseball innings)
    As an aside, I also propose to eliminate the coin toss and use "home field advantage" instead, for all games except for the Super Bowl. The home field team automatically selects whether to kick or receive first. If a game enters a shootout, the home field team will select whether to try first or second. In the Super Bowl this is decided by coin toss.

    Dak on the cowboys always feels like borrowed time. He still ended up with 40 mill a year. Ridiculous.

    After that reset I feel confident that Josh Allen will be the NFL's first 50 million QB. In a couple years even average QBs will be 30+ if Dak is worth 40.

    That's been the case ever since his infamous declaration that Joe Flacco is an elite quarterback. I didn't even realize Clayton was still around.

    Raiders traded Trent Brown to the Patriots. Their 2019 FA class was impressive.

    He was hired by a Denver radio station as a insider or something. I have not seen anything ESPN related in forever, so I didn't know he was that bad.

    All that matters is he had the best sportscenter commercial ever.

    Cap set at $182.5m, Saints still making cuts and restructures. Emmanual Sanders and Kwon Alexander being the latest casualties.

    The next big step is securing that great 2017 draft class:
    #1s Lattimore and Ramczyk are on year 5 options and need extensions
    #2 Marcus Williams is tagged
    #3s Kamara is extended, Anzalone is a FA, and Hendrickson probably priced himself too high with 13.5 sacks

    Those top 3 picks have big cap hits in 2021 and then they're free agents, would be great to get them extended and lower those cap hits.

    Emmanuel sanders is the most disrespected wr of the last like 7 years. He’s produced for every team he’s been with regardless of the qb.

    You'd think having an injury shortened season would diminish someone's value...

    I think the smaller cap will help teams that are close like Buffalo. A veteran out there might be seeing the bloodbath, and want a 1 year prove it deal on a contender, and test the waters again next year when the cap from the new CBA kicks in.

    And on the #3 passing offense, and the #1 11-personnel percentage in the league, BRING ME THE PASS CATCHING TEs.

    BRING ME JONNU SMITH, BRANDON BEANE.

    The word in Green Bay is the Packers probably will extend Za'darius Smith and use that to get themselves under the cap. If necessary they could move some money around with Rodgers.

    So sounds like it'll be a quiet offseason in Green Bay. Also that probably means that Aaron Jones is going somewhere else, so that could be a sneaky huge loss for them.

    Nothing sneaky about losing a guy who had 30 TDs in 30 games over the past two years.

    You say that but just wait for all the puff pieces on how the Packers are Super Bowl contenders again purely because of Rodgers and ignoring said 30 TDs that just walked out the door.
