Default 2018 NFL Thread: Marrying Your Cousins

Alright, the new league season starts tomorrow, so we're starting up a new thread. Mostly just so we can begin adjusting to the strange new world in which we live where the Philadelphia Eagles are Super Bowl Champions.


Here's a summary of all free agent signings/trades thus far:

QB Kirk Cousins (WAS) to the Vikings (3 yrs, $84 million GUARANTEED!)

QB Case Keenum (MIN) to the Broncos

LB Devon Kennard (NYG) to the Lions

DT Haloti Ngata (DET) to the Eagles

QB Drew Brees resigns with the Saints (2 yrs $50 million)

WR Sammy Watkins (LAR) to the Chiefs

WR Allen Robinson (JAX) to the Bears

QB Sam Bradford (MIN) to the Cardinals

QB Teddy Bridgewater (MIN) to the Jets (maybe) (LOL)

WR Danny Amendola (NE) to the Dolphins

TE Jimmy Graham (SEA) to the Packers

Packers release WR Jordy Nelson

You forgot Jarvis Landry and Tyrod Taylor to Browns in trades. Wasn't Alex Smith traded, as well?

Jets sign Terrelle Pryor.

They've now basically signed the entirety of the offensive skill players form the 2016 Browns. (McCown, Crowell. Pryor). That team went 1-15 BTW

Bradford probably should announce his retirement and Russell Wilson should hold out until Pete Caroll and the front office gives him an all pro oline

If you thought pass interference was unevenly enforced and had too big of an impact on games, wait until the NFL tries to enforce this new "lowering the helmet" rule. The motivation is noble, but it's going to be a fiasco when it's actually implemented.

Yeah guys like Fournette who often on almost every long run lowers his helmet will practically become obsolete with this new rule, I can see this rule becoming a problem especially at the goal line.

The "targeting" rule in college football became more controversial with each passing week. Like the NFL change, the motive was just, but the devil was in the details. The criteria seemed to change every week as to how this would be fairly officiated:

“no player shall target and make forcible contact to the head or neck area of a defenseless opponent with the helmet, forearm, hand, fist, elbow or shoulder.”

Defenders would make tackles for which the contact was altered by a move that the ball carrier made in the split second prior to a collision. Key players were getting kicked out of games when replays showed that their initial intent was a legal tackle.

The sport by nature, is a hard game to legislate...im not sure what honestly can be done to protect players from themselves; and yet, preserve the nature, integrity, and the very essence of the game.
