I think it's worse than that, tbh.

Even worse than that is that a reasonable argument could be made that Stafford is a Top 10 QB in the league right now, depending on how one feels about Luck, Manning, and the shambling corpse of Drew Brees.

You can absolutely make the argument that he's top 10, along with other ??? QBs like Eli and Cousins.  It's a little weird, because saying "Kirk Cousins is a top 10 QB" just feels wrong and yet, are there really 10 starters better than him?

When Brady and Brees retire (next year?) it's gonna be gross in the NFL.  Roethlisberger and Rivers won't be long either.  (Eli will probably play until he's 50 just to irritate Pats fans further).

Well, my thinking was this:

Rodgers Tier: Rodgers
Brady Tier: Brady
Top Tier: Roethlisberger, Ryan, Newton
Upper High Tier: Rivers, Carr, Wilson
Mid High Tier: Luck, A. Smith, Manning, Stafford, Brees
Mid Tier: T. Taylor, Flacco, Dalton, Mariotta, Prescott, Cousins, Winston
Mid Low Tier: Tannehill, Wentz, Palmer
Low Tier: Goff
Bottom Tier: Bortles
Shit Tier: Whatever garbage bags will get thrown out there by the Jets, Browns, Texans, Broncos, Vikings, Bears, and 49ers

That list may be overly kind to Alex Smith and Drew Brees but it might also sell several of the Mid Tier guys short (most notably Mariotta and Cousins), so Stafford's Top 10 competition sort of balances out. I would personally put Stafford down at #9 overall (that is, better than all of the Mid Upper guys), but I could see arguments for putting the guys on the same level as him slightly above him.

Oh, is the fantasy league still open for applicants or is it closed and finalized? Because I'd like to enter (even though I'd probably only make a half-ass attempt at a season, tbh, because I have never done a fantasy football team).

Remember when Luck was considered a top 5 QB and then the Colts ruined him? lol

It's not Luck's fault, but.

Fuuuuuck the Colts.  They tanked a season and threw games to get the guy.  I hope they never win another playoff game, ever.  Also, Jim Irsay should be in fucking prison.

The saddest part of being a Texans fan isn?t that our best QB ever is Matt Schaub. It?s that our second best is either the five years of David Carr or the one-year stretches of either Ryan Fitzpatrick or Brian Hoyer.

>implying the NFL isn't rigged

Much to the delight of DeAngelo Williams, Steve Smith Senior, and Josh Norman, apparently the Panthers fired their GM today, which made me remember that Ftahdr is a human being that exists. I'll be honest, I'm only making this thread as a honey pot because I want his reaction to this news. But eventually we'll get around to fantasy stuff too. (Who's gonna roll the dice on Ezekiel Elliot this year?)


man I haven't that name in forever. Now I guess I finally gotta write some shit about our GM. Fucking ugh.

OUR GENERAL MANAGER: DAVE GETTLEMAN HOLY SHIT THEY FINALLY LISTENED TO ME AND FIRED DAVE GETTLEMAN WHO BUILT A SUCCESSFUL TEAM DESPITE HIS COLOSSAL FUCKING INEPTITUDE AT ACTUALLY BUILDING A FUCKING TEAM! Thank the good lord that he's out, very strange that they waited until well after a pretty decent draft class to fire him. Let's see who they got to replace him, right after a take a great big sip of coffe-
MARTY FUCKING HURNEY!?
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?!?!? WE MANAGED TO HIRE THE ONE FUCKING PERSON THAT GETTLEMAN WAS CONSIDERED AN UPGRADE FROM? WHAT THE EVERLIVING FUCKING FUCK!? I HATE THIS TEAM SO FUCKING BAD!!!

Let's recap: Marty Hurney rewarded veterans and past successes with incredibly lucrative and undeserved contracts and by the time the salary cap really came around we (the Panthers) were in such deep deep trouble because Hurney had decided to pay RBs Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams and probably one other guy approximately 18 Gorillian dollars and we were quite literally in a literal hell literally not figuratively but literally. Due to these horrifically toxic contracts and his failure at evaluating talent and inability to field a competitive team, Hurney was rightly fired. Then we got Dave Gettleman who managed to do one and only one good thing in his entire tenure: get us out of the Marty Hurney Cap Hell Danger Zone Lana Archer Jokes For The Win Lol. He had very little goodwill with the fans and frankly should have been fired years and years ago because the man was atrocious at player management and somehow even worse(!!!) than Hurney at drafting! Let's start there: I honestly and truly believe that Dave Gettleman's childhood pet was once kicked by an Elite First Round Talent Offensive Tackle becuase Gettleman avoided them like the goddamn plague. He drafted FOUR FUCKING DEFENSIVE TACKLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! in his tenure, all in the first or second round. HEY YOU GODDAMN MORON ONLY TWO OF THEM CAN PLAY AT A TIME oh and he fucking loved to try and convert players to positions they had never played before OH YEAH THAT'S THE GOOD STUFF! NOTHING LIKE A BAD DT PLAYING EVEN WORSE AT DE BECAUSE ONE OF THOSE MUST HAVE SHOT GETTLEMAN'S FATHER IN AN ALLEY LIKE SOME KIND OF FRANCHISE RUINING SUPERHERO ORIGIN STORY! His utter aversion to Oline talent led to his accidentally finding a stud Guard in Trai Turner and making Cam Newton RUN FOR HIS FUCKING LIFE EVERY GODDAMN WEEK so now when the dogwhistle racists say Cam is just a running QB I got no choice but to point at the tape and tell them YOU'RE GODDAMN RIGHT HE IS!

I've been on the "Fire Gettleman" bandwagon for years and the fact that he was fired at the worst possible time and replaced with the previous GM that was generally seen in pleasant terms as "garbage" is mind-boggling ineptitude. I can't wait for Hurney to give Julius Peppers a 1 year 58 mil contract because he's a TRUE PANTHER AND WE TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN! Fucking gag me, I never thought that our next GM would make me PINE for Gettleman before the first fucking game. Jesus Tapdancing Christ. I'm so goddamn mad.
