To some degree. Like I said, I'm just not sure how strong the correlation is. I'm sure there are millions of successful and unhappy people, and millions of "unsuccessful" and very happy people. I'm not against generalizations, I'm just not sure how true that notion is as a generalization.

Long story short, I think being a Packer is in fact probably pretty miserable. :wink:

Dumb, aggressive short term thinking by the Cardinals.

Patriots are laughing their #### off.

Cards are serious about getting a ring. They have upgraded both sides of the ball.
Probably figure Palmer doesn't have to many years left.

Banking your future on maintaining a window for Carson Palmer is a silly move imo.

Something to keep an eye on. I doubt we'd sign him if available (too pricy, especially with Kalil) but I certainly wouldn't mind me some Clady.

Ryan Clady - T - Broncos

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reports the Broncos and LT Ryan Clady "are currently at impasse regarding his contract for 2016."
The Broncos want Clady to take a pay cut on his $9.5 million base salary. Clady, understandably, is not that interested in taking less money, but his opinion could be swayed by the visit of free agent LT Russell Okung to Denver this week. The Broncos can save $8.9 million against the cap by releasing Clady.

Okung to Denver. Clady likely traded or cut

Interesting contract structure.

Quote:
#Jaguars signed LT Kelvin Beachum to a 1-yr, $4.5M deal… with a 4-year option worth $40M, source said. Creative with Beachum off an ACL

Via Kevin Seifert...

Quote:
VP of officiating Dean Blandino used video examples to explain the NFL's stance on the catch rule to reporters. Blandino repeated the new three-step mantra: A legal catch requires possession, two feet down and a subjective degree of time with possession. His presentation made sense, but most observers seem to have made up their minds on the rule. Even Blandino admitted that sometimes there will be plays that look like catches but aren't called that way.

It would really be more fun if they just turned it into American Gladioters or American Ninja Warrior with the best NFL players. Crown the best all around athlete at each position group each year, and don't waste time on a football game played at half speed.

They're going to have to pay players significantly more, especially the stars, if they expect them to play harder. At the least they should give them as much as they'd make on a game check with a floor so low paid but high performing players still get a good chunk. Then the winners will need some kind of bonuses.

If they don't want to drop that kind of money (or at least near it) they need to completely change it up. I personally think the amount of viewers that kind of game would garner with players actually trying would make up for what they'd pay the players but I'm sure the NFL has already done that cost benefit analysis and they haven't changed, so ...

Exactly. Paying more for attending won't do anything for the quality of the game itself. The only way I can see that maybe happening is if they offer significant injury insurance which, of course, they never will.

This makes me disappointed. I want to see the numbers that prove the kickoff is one of the most dangerous plays. If that's true, why isn't that data available? If it "ebbs and flows" can you really make said conclusion? What is your "control" group? Do you also study other plays? If the data supports the conclusion (by a statistically significant margin than OK, but I have my doubts).

One day soon it won't make sense to return a kickoff

Not only are Rams doing this summer's Hard Knocks, they also are expected to play a regular-season game in 2018 in China.

further devalues kick returners. a 35 yard return from 10 yards deep is now the equivalent of a touchback. Kind of a bummer. They are trying to move it to a point where the kickoff is just eliminated.

Text from one ST coach on touchback rule: "There'll def be more high, short kicks and squib kicks." Expects more creativity to pin teams.

Quote:
And to build on that, potential unintentional consequence ... More high, short kicks would likely mean more kills shots on returners.
