Thje echoes of this game reverberated into the next season. When Haley refused to shake McDouchebags hand, it was because McDouche didnt pull his starters when the game was out of hand. Jamaal could have legit set a single game record as shitty as the Donk d was playing, but Haley called off the dogs. Then the following season the fucking Donks are throwing deep late in the 4th in a game that is out of reach. I wish Haley had either punched him in the face or kicked him in the balls. He fucking deserved a ass-whupping for that bush league bullshit

One thing I can appreciate about Veach is that he makes a plan and executes it. Whether or not the result of that plan works out is one thing but at least he does stuff. This offseason with the OL is a perfect example. Mahomes got killed in the SB so Veach goes out and completely remakes the line. Compared to teams like the Bungles who instead of drafting Sewell to protect Burrow, they grab Chase.

It’s not just protection, it’s also youth and cap management. Brown will have to be Paid, no doubt, but LTs of that caliber cost. If Creed and Niang work out, and Allegretti comes along well enough to become a reliable starter, that’s 4 young players on the OL for years to come.

If he can get a lot of young players established at key positions, it’ll buy him time until the cap catches up to Mahomes’ contract. After that, as long as he hasn’t done the magic conversion every year, and he’ll have all kinds of flexibility by the time the later bills start coming due.

If the line works and we have an opportunity to draft a Left tackle

Brown could be a stop gap for what 600k and we get a 3-4 round comp pick?

Brown makes about 3 million this year, which is still peanuts for a starting LT.

And if he signs somewhere else, it would almost assuredly qualify for a third round pick. But if we sign a player in free agency to an similar contract as Brown’s, it would cancel out on the compensatory formula.

Why would we draft a LT we we used a 1st rounder on a 24 year old Pro Bowl LT? I would absoilutely call for Veachs head if Brown is just a rental, unless he comes out and completely sucks, which I dont believe he will do of course

Or makes unrealistic contract demands, of course, but I doubt he will. Everything I’ve heard him say after the trade sounds like he’s sincerely dedicated to carving out a legacy in the league, and knows that you can’t do that if you spend a lot of time bouncing around.

Since we got a 2nd rounder back in exchange and gave up the 31st pick in third, the value is close to the #20 pick in the 2nd. Still steep for a 1 year rental, but if his play at LT doesn’t match his perceived contract value, we can let him walk and possibly recoup a late third rounder. That would shift the value of the original trade to about the 5th pick in the 3rd.

I am a draft nerd.

I’d be surprised if they don’t have an agreement in principle (with conditions from both sides) already. Doubt he’s a rental, maybe he’s cool with franchise tag for next year (doubtful).

seems when you start very high and get better you get edged out by pitiful getting somewhat better?

Los Angeles’ offensive line ended the 2020 season at No. 32 in PFF’s end-of-the-year rankings. They were owners of a 48.8 PFF grade as a unit, lower than any other team in the NFL. The only group to post a worse overall grade across the past five seasons was Miami’s offensive line in 2019.

I appreciate that they acknowledge our line in the Superbowl was not the line we planned to have last offseason. I have seen a lot of blame being placed at Veach’s feet over the offensive line performance in the last game. We were down to third string almost across the board.

Not the most popular of takes, and I know from having argued that point since not long after that bitter dust had settled.

Practice didn’t matter, cohesion and continuity didn’t matter, and neither did the drastic reduction in talent level. Nope, none of those mattered, that OL “should’ve done better!” because that’s what those angry fans wanted, and nothing else mattered. Nice to know I’m not alone in seeing that.

They could have been put in a better position by the coaches. They are backups for a reason, but the coaches thought they could perform the same as our pro bowl starters.

That is not Veach’s fault either.

“Should” is always an indicator of wishful thinking until demonstrated otherwise. The coaches most certainly did their best to put them in position, Reid and Bieniemy have a very good staff.

Trying to figure out who slacked off and “caused the loss” is futile, if everyone did the best they possibly could in a horrible situation. You end up pointing the finger at someone who doesn’t deserve it. Maybe even firing someone who’s not only not at fault, but is actually a solid member of the group.

What happens then is that a good employee gets fired through no fault of their own, and all their colleagues know it was unfair. Does wonders to improve morale knowing that you could be fired for doing your best when you don’t have what’s needed to perform well. Doesn’t make you feel good, knowing that a coworker just got fired because some idiot upstairs didn’t bother to understand what went wrong, and that it could happen to you, too?

2. KANSAS CITY CHIEFSThe Chiefs’ offensive line may have cost the team a Super Bowl last season. But the unit that took the field in Super Bowl 55 isn’t the same group they entered the season with. Injuries and opt-outs left them exceedingly thin heading into their final game. It seems as if the Chiefs have decided this offseason that they won’t allow a lack of offensive line depth to cause the team any more problems.
They rank second instead of first here because this is a “most improved” article. The bar was set higher for Kansas City, especially when factoring in a quality starting tackle duo of Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz in the original unit. It’s hard not to like the talent they added this offseason, though.
Orlando Brown Jr. and Joe Thuney clearly headline the left side, and the Chiefs are paying a significant chunk of change for the security they bring.

Brown cost Kansas City the equivalent of a late first-round pick in the trade with the Baltimore Ravens, and they’ll likely have to pay him upper-tier left tackle money to keep him in town. Meanwhile, the Chiefs made Thuney the highest-paid guard in the NFL on a team already doling out top-of-the-market money to multiple players.
Those two are an elite pairing on the left side. Brown has been the second-most valuable tackle in the NFL since 2019, according to PFF WAR. Thuney comes in at fourth at the guard position in the same metric, behind only Quenton NelsonJoel Bitonio and Zack Martin. The only concern is that Brown could take a step back on the left side in an offense that isn’t quite as scheme-friendly compared to how teams were forced to rush Lamar Jackson.
It wasn’t just those two, either. Kansas City added Austin Blythe and Kyle Long in free agency. They drafted Creed Humphrey and Trey Smith in the 2021 NFL Draft to compete for spots. They’ll have competition at multiple positions and quality depth behind the starters. It’s just worth keeping in mind that this offensive line wasn’t as bad in 2020 as the last image we have of them from Super Bowl 55.

It was cool. Definitely awesome for free. They had some stuff for kids to do like the 3 cone drill, walk through the smoke tunnel like the players come on the field.

They had a stage set up where Mitch interviewed Marc Boerichter, Tim Grunhard, and Keith Cash. Then they brought out Nick Bolton and Creed Humphrey to chat.

Not something I would pay much to do, but for a STM perk I would go every year.

Jameis Winston was featured this week on “Draft Academy,” an ESPN show in which potential NFL Draft selections are interviewed. On it, Winston spoke with Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh and members of his staff.
During Tuesday night’s episode, Harbaugh pushed Winston to explain the incident in which he was caught on a security camera taking crab legs from a Publix grocery store.

HAYDEN HURST
TE, ATLANTA FALCONS
comment image
Falcons won’t exercise TE Hayden Hurst’s fifth-year option. Hurst will be a free agent in 2022. Atlanta went all in on phenom tight end Kyle Pitts, taking him with the fourth pick in the 2021 draft, thereby ending Hurst’s 2021 fantasy relevance. Hurst in 2020 saw encouraging usage in the Falcons offense, running the fourth most routes among tight ends on his way to 85 targets, the ninth most among tight ends. Even with heavy usage, Hurst averaged the 15th most tight end fantasy points per game. It wouldn’t be surprising if another team signed Hurst as their primary pass-catching tight end in 2022.
