I have a few things I'd like to note:
1) Brad Wells is a hack and can suck it
2) Whomever enabled autoplay for ads on your website should be punched in the nuts repeatedly. I don't think it was the CA crew, but that shit needs to stop.

@7IHd @Payton @Travis_Tango No I'm not writing off Holmes if he doesn't start this year. I'm saying if he doesn't start this year we have a overly expensive, crappy center who occasionally run blocks well and never pass blocks well. Even with the new offense, we will be passing more than running, so pass blocking is still critical to keeping Luck upright and healthy.
Keeping Satele and trading Shipley was just a dumb idea.

@Travis_Tango We saw him play last year with the team and do pretty well where Satele sucked, hurt or healthy, with the same players. Shipley being on the roster and the money from Satele's contract would be worth more than anything we get back from a trade. If Holmes starts at C, we have a mediocre backup who commands a top ten C salary. If Satele starts, it means that Holmes wasn't very good, we are starting a mediocre C with a top ten salary, and we should have kept Shipley.

@Travis_Tango Not really. The contents of the article kind of matter, just a little bit. Not all players are equal.
@AJ_ Even before I found out it was a conditional 7th round pick, I felt that the cap savings from cutting Satele would be worth far more to the team than the inevitable late round pick we'd get from this deal.

@Kyle Rodriguez @zgs1288 On the plus side, if he does get cut we can re-sign him and cut Satele....
@CoverZero He sucked before he injured himself. His knee didn't bother him the entire season.

@cgtmouse Satele might be better against the run than Shipley, but I doubt Grigson was planning on using either on the DL.
Now Shipley was definitely better at run blocking last season. What makes it more alarming is that Satele was *supposed* to be great at it but failed miserably. The fact that Shipley succeeded (relatively anyway) where Satele failed was all the more damning. I know we are switching up the offense to make it more balanced and have west coast options, but Andrew Luck is the franchise. It's more important to have a pass blocking center than a run blocking center. Satele has been bad at the latter and always miserable at the former.
Hell I know Polian was a prideful man but he cut Terrance Taylor during final cuts. It was idiotic to trade Shipley before training camp even hit unless Grigson doesn't want Satele or Holmes to lose any reps. Either way it was dumb to not cut Satele instead of trading Shipley. The money alone makes that argument.

@mattshedd How is Walden going to contribute on the strength end? He got manhandled by anyone who got hands on him last year.

@hankster @MarcusDugan @smonroe In most systems, including the one we run, the NT is a two-gap, primarily run stopping position used to occupy two blockers. In some systems like Dallas (maybe still) and Houston, the NT is responsible for one gap and subsequent penetration.

*flips coffee table*
@MarcusDugan @smonroe Saying Antonio Johnson struggled against the run is like saying Keyunta Dawson as a starting DT was merely "unsatisfactory."
@MayerTheMayor @jelewin Yes he was phenomenal for the playoff run and got a certain helping of luck playing into his hands (seriously Rahim Moore?). That doesn't outweigh the rest of his body of work which is decidedly mediocre in comparison to the rest of the "elite" QBs. I'd say he's actually probably better than Kaepernick for the time being because Kaepernick hasn't had a defense with an entire season of film to use against him.
He's nowhere hear Manning or Brady. Also if you really want to measure a QBs worth by rings or that it puts them on a new plateau (which is idiotic), Eli is clearly better than Flacco. He's got 2 and Flacco has one. Manning also never got gifted a playoff W where he garnered a Grossman-esque passer rating of 10.
1 month, 1 week ago on Guest Post- Snubbed: NFL Total Access Ranks Peyton Manning at #3 Quarterback Taken No. 1 Overall
@MayerTheMayor You have to speculate. Actual results are a very real result of the quality of the team + luck. Aikman's teams in their SB seasons ran the ball 3-4 more times a game than the Colts did on more possessions a game.
Manning's resume is not great, but it's hardly 100% his fault.
@MayerTheMayor Their draft status doesn't really make a difference because they could command huge contracts AFTER they were drafted, ergo yeah the salary cap or lack thereof matters.
QBs don't have to apologize for having better players on their team but you'd be completely daft to take that into consideration when judging who is better or why one's record is better than the other. Either way, Manning definitely had some rough games, but his defense and special teams let him down far more than Aikman's did. The fact Aikman has almost exactly the same rate stats as Manning with the best offensive line of all-time and one of the greatest RBs is pretty telling.
@MayerTheMayor Aikman played on a *far* superior team and that team was unrestricted by a salary cap for two of those 3 SB wins. Also attributing team wins to a QB is just about the weakest argument anyone can put forward.
@rogcohen Most overrated QB of all time has to be Joe Namath
