  1. And equally, if YPC benefits the guy who is not targeted in goal line situations, then TD receptions or even TD ratio WOULD benefit the guy who is targeted in goal line situations... and unfairly so.
  2. A word of advice... if you're going to propose a theory, you might want to at least substantiate it or test it out first. Now I had to do your work for you... Aiken had 18 first downs on 29 receptions, a 62% rate. Boldin had 41 first downs on 67 receptions, a 61% rate. So at best, they were comparable in terms of efficiency from a first down standpoint. TDs are obviously in Boldin's favor, though I'm not really sure why you think that's a quality measurement for efficiency. YAC is a pretty good measurement of efficiency, and that favors Aiken pretty comfortably. The only thing a TD ratio is going to display is usage differences between the two players. Aiken was obviously not a red zone option, while Boldin was.
  3. What a load of hogwash. First, restructuring does not necessarily mean a player gets paid less. Converting base salary into bonus money pays the player the exact amount as before, just now some of that money is guaranteed. It's always risky for a team, but it's a common tool to lower a player's cap hit. Secondly, plenty of QBs have done it. Brady and Big Ben have both done it at least 2 times in the past 5 years if I remember correctly. You actually just proved his point. Players move the money around, but they don't eliminate it completely. That's the point. His statement was that no QB has agreed to take a straight paycut, meaning no bonus conversion, etc. While I wouldn't say nobody has done it, I don't recall any big name, franchise QB doing it. Restructuring a salary into a bonus to create short term cap space is just like putting something on your credit card. It doesn't go away... you just pay it later. This is all moot on Joe, because only $6M this season would be subject to this anyway, so converting a portion or all of that into a bonus wouldn't even yield that much cap space. In short, its not happening.
  4. I could argue both sides. 1. Him having the best year of his career isn't saying much, because his career numbers were never great. 2. He had a ton of catches but was pretty bad in terms of yardage. That's pretty inefficient. 3. At $5.5M, he would be paid like a top TE in the league, which he really isn't. Also takes into account the gigantic health risk associated. Not only that... he got paid while injured and we didnt waiver on that. Plus, he probably realizes that he wouldnt stand to make what he'll probably make here over the next 2 years in the open market (especially now that everyones gobbled up TEs, and the draft is historically good at the position). Agreeing to the pay cut all but guarantees he'll be here for the next 2 years at a pretty good salary, on the team he wants to be with, where his family is comfortable, with a QB who he is a security blanket for which prob helps his future earning potential. I wouldn't say he's guaranteed a roster spot in 2018. The difference between this year and last years paycut is that he agreed to a cut for more than just that season. As it stands now, he would create $3M in cap savings with a cut after this season, with only $2.2M in dead money. Anytime there's decent cap savings AND the cap savings is more than the dead money, you're almost always on the roster bubble. A similar season to last season likely means he stays. Any injuries or decrease in production and he's a prime cut candidate. I think all this agreement does is guarantee him a roster spot for 2017, but definitely not in the future.
  5. We actually have quite a few medical professionals who post here. Yup, and I still would trust an NFL team doctor over what they say... for obvious reasons.
  6. Still doubt it. At best, I think he ends up on a PUP list for whoever drafts him, meaning he misses half the season. Basically a redshirt year for him. Rookie corner coming off a major injury with like 6 months to recover... not worth the risk.
  7. He's not taking a paycut from the $6M base salary he's due this year, which is the only part that he can actually take a paycut from.
  8. Yeah because tds per reception wouldn't be used to discuss efficiency. Btw that's 1 td per 8 receptions by boldin last yr It would be if it were a sustainable number, but you already know that it isn't. That's an indication of a redzone specialist, not an efficient receiver.

  10. LOL her we go again. Ready to pounce huh. No, it's not. He probably would be even accept 5M a year. LOL, do you honestly believe what you are saying or are you just trolling? Just FYI, $7M a year is top 10 inside linebacker money in the NFL... also known as a ton. Its especially a ton for a team that probably only has about half that much in cap space to actually spend. Still money to free up Genuis. But of course you knew that? You know it all sounds like Maybe, maybe not. Doesn't sound like a great way to build a quality football team though. Sounds like you didn't really think this one through all the way before you fired off the troll post. LOL. By suggesting a couple obvious cuts that will be made...? O OK LOL Continue to impress with your ways 1. You mean the obvious cuts that every fan was so sure was going to happen like a month ago? Those obvious cuts? LOL. Funny thing is... its basically one person... Ben Watson. Arrington isn't getting cut until he can pass a physical, otherwise we have to pay him something in a settlement, which could eliminate most of the cap savings, thus making it pointless. 2. Also implies that we would actually want to cut one of those guys simply to spend $7M on a MLB when we have another MLB who will get at least that much probably next offseason. Again, if you just think these things through, its not really that hard.

  12. ........based on Luck winning SO MANY playoff games and his Super Bowl performance? Oh, that's right, no real history there. Well he did have three postseason wins in his first 3 years, which is exceptionally strong. You won't find that in this league very often.
  13. Well, you would expect a rookie to drop more passes than a 5th year player. The difference between the two is about 2-4 yards/catch. So basically, Perriman can do more damage (and did last season) with less receptions. That's called being efficient. I think you mean effective. Perriman is more effective than efficient Either way his draft reports said he drop a high rate of passes in college and now its starting to show its ugly head in NFL. John H not going to be able to cope with that this year. Jobs are on the line. No actually he's more efficient also. Getting more yards/catch is being efficient as well. John's job may be on the line, but Perriman's isn't, and John doesn't have a choice but to cope with the growing pains of a 2nd year WR. Boldin is effective and efficient. Sign him in July. Well, actually, if Aiken isn't efficient, then Boldin can't be either, since Boldin's YPC was significantly less than Aiken's. Obviously the Ravens won't be signing Boldin. There's only one person who hasn't come to grips with this, and it ain't anybody in the FO of the Ravens...
  14. I'm no doctor but I'm pritty sure him playing those last couple of meaningless games didn't help. It probably screwed up his shoulder more and postponed rehab for at least a month. Great way to protect your franchise QB lol In hindsight possibly. But obviously the absolute last thing I'm ever going to consult a fanboard poster about is medical advice.
