Diggs and Hunter adding to what the Texans had, wow !!!

They should be a fun team to watch, anything less than getting to the 2nd week of the playoffs will be a disappointment for them.

Adding what? Large salaries?

Diggs is a diva and Hunter is always hurt. As I see it, they took on a lot of baggage.


Hunter had a major neck injury that cost him 1.5 years.

He never missed a game before or after.

And he's coming off the best year of his career. Career highs in Sacks, Forced Fumbles, Tackles (Both Solo and Ast), QB Hits and he led the NFL in Tackles for Loss.

He's had 108 tackles-for-loss in 119 games. In other words, he makes less than one (potentially) impactful play a game. Lets not conflate his production. He's never been one of the top rush-ends in the eight years he has been in the league. Tons of potential. Nobody argues that.


You can play that "game" with any NFL player.

Its a dishonest argument.

It's not dishonest at all. Hunter has always showed potential, but has never been considered one of the best at his position.

Brad please stop with the lying.

Myles Garrett
Micah Parsons
Nick Bosa
Jermaine Johnson
TJ Watt
Max Crosby
Trey Hendrickson

I could name another five on top of that I'd rather have.

Admittedly, I don't think much of defensive ends. Without good corners they are irrelevant.

You stated that Hunter has NEVER been considered one of the best at his position. You named a bunch of pretty good to great Defensive ends. A lot of them came along after Hunter was already considered one of the best at his position. That doesn't change the FACT that Hunter has been considered one of the best defensive ends. You know what you said isn't true. You know that Hunter has been considered one of the best at his position and that is why I'm declaring what you said as a lie.



It's been slow in here so:

1. He's saying inflamatory shit to start debate
2. He's trying to drum up more arguments for his belief that "defense starts at the corners"

I think he's bored.

IDK..they’re eating 30 million in dead cap aren’t they. It’s a discounted high 2nd to me.

Reading up on it, the Bills could have waited till next year and had no dead cap.

But, the team made a run late in season when it quit trying to force ball to him and Allen starting running more.

I do think Demeco Ryans can get the best out of him.

Diggs is still extremely good. IMO great deal for the Texans.

Now, Diggs gets the rest of his contract wiped away and can become FA next year.

I think Bills saw a huge contract squabble coming up and got what they could get.

When JJ and Chase get their big deals, look for Diggs to be looking for the same.

He really shouldn't have done that (wipe out the contract)...wrong side of 30....he is in Thielen territory. Perfectly fine first 10-12 games but body is done for playoffs.

If he comes out strong, and he probably will, there will be pressure on Houston to extend him.

Totally agree.

Hard to say anyone faired well in this trade.

49ers take a WR.

Looks like Aiyuk or Samuel will be traded.

There is zero question that the Vikings preferred JJ to Nix evidenced by trading up to 10 and not risking somebody else doing it. I'm going to play a little Devils Advocate. For those who are less than thrilled with McCarthy and the decision to trade a 4th round pick plus a 5th for 6th swap to move up to 10 the Vikings could have just called the bluff and stood pat at 11. Worst thing or possibly best thing that could have happened was McCarthy got sniped at 10 and we take Bo Nix at 11. Rookie Camp reports are in for Bo Nix. They are extremely positive in general.

Do not construe this to mean I preferred Nix. I'm very happy with the choice of McCarthy, but I will be following Nix career with a lot of interest.

Reports coming out now have Kirk making peace with the selection of Penix by the Falcoms.

Kirk Cousins insists he isn\'t angry with the Atlanta Falcons for drafting Michael Penix, Jr.

Cousins was asked on the \'Bussin\' with the Boys\' podcast if there\'s beef between him and the Falcons over the draft.

\"No, I don\'t think there can be. I don\'t think it\'s helpful,\" the quarterback said.

\"We\'re trying to win the Super Bowl and it\'s hard enough. So let\'s all be on the same page and let\'s go try to win the Super Bowl.\"

Via \\\'Bussin\\\' with the Boys\\\' Podcast


IMO Kirk had a bit of a right to be upset over the Falcons using pick 8 to draft his replacement when they could have used it on Dallas Turner to help them win now.
