The 2019 NEPFF Roster Projection Contest

-by DNOMN8R314

You know how this goes.

Create your 53-man roster projection – I suggest using PatsPicker, for which I update the rosters – and send it to contests@patsfootballfans.com, with your username in the body of the email. As always, I’ll be collecting from here and from beat writers so as to determine which group – and which individual – has the strongest prognostication skill.

The deadline will be 11:59 PM on August 30, the minute before Cutdown Day. If the Patriots announce any cuts before then, and a cut player is on your projection, you may send me a revision (before that deadline).

Good luck.

(…I don’t have anything to add to fill out space on the page, so… sorry.)

This may come as a shock to many of you, but I just saw that Max Kellerman doesn’t think that Tom Brady is the greatest QB of all time. I didn’t watch the clip of him speaking about it, but I assume he said something along the lines of “He’s not even the best quarterback in his draft class!!! I’ll take Marc Bulger over Brady! I’ll take Chad Pennington over Brady! I’ll take Chris Redman over Brady!”

I thought he said he was the “GOAT”, but not the “BOAT”…. either way, his argument was pointless…

Feels like ESPN used (early- to mid- 200s) to just be sports center all morning/afternoon until about 2-3 PM, when it would go into the afternoon talk shows. Then a game (basektball, baseball, football).. then sports center until paid programming.

Now it’s just dodo birds talking all day long.. wtf.

Good call– pro tip, if the weather gets socked in (which it’s known to do in a rain forest), then I’d recommend bailing on the flight and doing something closer to the ground. They kinda dumb down the flight paths when the weather comes in and you are limited in spectacular views.

What is realistically the market for someone like Elliot? What team out there really wants to trade for an RB who is looking for big-time financial security? Asking for a friend (the Chargers)

Realistically any team with a QB on a rookie payscale and a decent Oline should be interested. Bucks is a possible destination.

If the Packers want to make a SB push with Rodgers, they would be an ideal destination.

It’s kind of funny that 3/4 of QBs drafted in the 2004 1st round are still starting for their original teams, and the fourth one is J.P. Losman. There are so many things you can make fun of the Bills for. What an embarrassment of riches.

dfwpatsfan

They’ve struck out badly when it comes to QBs but I feel it’s also correlated with so much turnover in coaching. So much turnover in coaching, and each coach rewrites his predecessor. Every time a QB has found some rhthym the offensive philosophy changes.

So, more on the Bleacher Report Idiocy, with Carli Lloyd and her 55 yard field goal.

They put “55 yard field goal” in their headline, then chose to link a video of a PAT, which is pretty much just a shiat stirring dick move.

Personally, I think they keep Shelton and Pennel.

I don’t think Dorsett is going anywhere.

Skipper and Croston? Flip a coin on who would get Brady killed, first.

Brooks adds ST value and we know how much BB loves that. Although, maybe he hasn’t given up on Obi, yet?

cfpats4

roughneck is a troublemaker who gets in a lot of fights and doesn’t have good manners. Roughnecks are also men who work at dangerous, grueling hard-labor jobs. Maybe that’s why they’re so mad. Roughnecks weren’t always brutes — the term comes from Texas and used to just refer to a “rugged individual.”
Oil riggers were referred as roughnecks

Good article on strength of schedule on cbs sports:
“If you’re getting tired of watching the Patriots play in the Super Bowl, then I have some bad news for you: Their streak of three consecutive appearances might not be ending this year and that’s because out of all the teams in the NFL, New England has the easiest path to Super Bowl LIV, at least according to our scheduling formula. ”

HunterCenter

if you had asked a fan of another team before the start of last season if they thought playing the Patriots anytime in weeks 1-4 would have qualified as an “easy” game on the schedule, they would laugh at you. And if you asked the same question at the end of last season, that same fan, if they were being honest, would say that actually, yes, playing the Pats at that early point in the season turnout to be one of the easiest games on the schedule.

Defending champions should never drop out of the No. 1 spot in a preseason power rankings exercise. Josh Gordon’s reinstatement is a huge lift for an offense crossing its fingers for an impact from the likes of Maurice Harris, Jakobi Meyers and first-round pick N’Keal Harry. As for the guy who will be throwing the ball: ESPN’s Mike Reiss recently wrote that Tom Brady, who turned 42 earlier this month, has “been as sharp as ever” at Patriots camp. Don’t be surprised at the end of the season when this is a top-10 offense — again.

Anyone here watches Hard Knocks with the Raiders? I read that Gruden revealed the AB helmet thing as something he was aware of from the beginning and AB ” handled it seamlessly” whatever that means. So this whole thing was staged for ratings?

AB made himself a laughing stock, while Gruden is kind of a caricature of his own anyway.

I think what he was trying to say was – look, Brown’s here and practicing – why aren’t you reporting on guys who aren’t actually at camp like Gordon or Elliot? Leave us alone…..

dfwpatsfan

dfwpatsfan

That strikes me as very odd, considering what the GM was communicating to the media and what Gruden presumably said about AB. Maybe I’m jaded, this really sounds like a ratings exercise for an organization not being taken seriously this year. It’s not surprising considering Gruden has been media savvy for a while.

This is one of those “It’s pointless for me to speculate” because I don’t have a clue what the people involved are thinking. Does Caserio actually want to leave, or do the Texans just want him. If it’s the former, then yeah, replace him, if it’s the latter, then too bad for the Texans.

I think it is more complicated than that.
If you are on NFI/PUP, you don’t count in the 90-man roster.
Once the season starts:
– you can be placed on IR, including IR/DTR and not count.
– you are eligible to be on PUP and not count, if you have been on PUP all training camp. But you can’t return until week 7.
– or you count against the roster.

Nate, are you thinking of the release of Inman when Gordon joined? That was not to make room for Gordon. It was an independent transaction.

You are making it complicated, he asked about NFI, Gordon is on NFI but counts on the roster.

NFI and PUP are the same in terms of the rules. PUP is when the injury happened under NFL. NFI is when injury happened anywhere else.

Brady’s current winning percentage is .775 (207-60), that’s better than 12-4 (.750.) It’s gobsmacking.

Can’t say with any certainty, but i’d imagine it’s fairly competitive. Which side are you looking at: retail or supply? My guess would be that getting a job in a dispensary wouldn’t be all too difficult, but getting in a a grow operation is more difficult….

Good for him. Pats did right by him – he asked for his release, they obliged, which gave him enough time to sign with the team of his choice. All the best to him.

For contest above, if I submit a list with only 50 players, I already have 3 wrong – correct?

That means that you can only nail 50 players and not 53.

MattDog #N'KealHarryToThePats

I’ve never actually participated in one of these but I would think you’d be better off submitting 53 and being wrong than 50 and giving yourself no chance on the last 3.

It’s just easier to award the winner by least wrong vs most right. If everyone submits 53, it should be the same winner either way.

My extreme example is submitting only Tom Brady and declaring victory for getting none wrong.

Ball was snapped from the 15 yd line and it probably would have been blocked at the LOS. But it looks nice.

I blame the Bleacher Report idiots. She’s out there having fun, and they turn it into a stupid distance controversy. Looked like a standard extra point attempt distance.

Seriously with Edelman Gordon Harry and Myers I rather keep Berrios Harris or Dorsett over a old vet coming off injury that was never special anyway, drop way too many balls.

Are people really expecting that much from Thomas? He’s old and slow. I’m expecting way more from Meyers. I’ll be surprised if Thomas is a starter. Nice depth piece, though, for sure. But this seems like a classic case of being biased by the name on the back of the jersey.

hugo #FreeBoney

I’m not expecting anything.
There’s some chance he’s turned back the clock, I guess. He was just always sorta unreliable, even when he was getting 1,000 yards and 10 TDs. Prone to drops (especially over the middle), sloppy, easily rattled etc. Doesn’t seem like his skillset would translate to not outjumping and outrunning opponents.

hugo #FreeBoney

To follow up on that thought – I think the reason people are excited isn’t because they expect him to be the DT of old. It’s that “well even if he got worse, he’s still going from a #1 WR to a #3 WR”. I’m skeptical, given that he messed up his achilles, that he can transition to being a possession WR at all.

but in all seriousness, I had no problem with that play call. It was an execution issue. Pats had the Iggles D fooled.

BoSoxJim

The problem was that an Eagles defender came after Amendola too quick so he had to lob the pass instead of putting it right on him.

Oh well.
