    Well, the new league year starts today, so I guess this is as good of a time as any to start the new thread.

    A few bold predictions:
    • RGIII makes the Pro Bowl.
    • Ben Roethlisberger will be MVP.
    • The NY Giants will run away with the NFC East.
    • The Raiders will make the playoffs.
    • Josh Gordon makes the Pro Bowl.

    RGIII has a better chance of joining the PBA and becoming a pro bowler than he does of being a Pro Bowler.

    Yeah they will. The Dolphins are shitting the bed. They are signing 31 year old Mario Williams to a contract and going to let 25 year old Olivier Vernon walk once they remove his transition tag, and they are also going to ask Cameron Wake to take a pay cut and if he doesn't they may cut him. The Jets have no qb because Fitzpatrick wants too much money and the Bills have Rex Ryan and will never do better than 9-7.

    The Patriots will win by default unless Brady gets hurt.

    I could see any team taking it this year, especially if the NFL wins the appeal in the Brady case. Even if the decision is upheld in the NFL/Brady case and Brady gets to play every game, every defense in the AFC East has the potential to be reel good this year.

    I think there'll be a lot of close games and whichever QB sucks the least will likely take the division. Brady obviously will suck the least, but if he misses time, it's a whole new ballgame.

    Cowboys sign RG3 and trade for Johnny Footbaw. Glass Shoulder Romo shatters his collarbone in week one. RG3 blows out both knees in week two. Between weeks two and three, Johnny Footbaw is arrested for possessing 682 pounds of weed (take that Nate Newton). Cowboys finish the season with Jimmy Clausen at quarterback.

    Can't believe Charles Johnson is coming back for 1 year/$3 mil. Got the cap space to make a run at Weddle, but doubt Panthers will go for it.

    I hated Gettleman for throwing Steve Smith to the curb, but everything since then has been gold. Dude knows what he's doing.

    The Titans basically got Murray for a bag of peanuts. They just swapped 4th round picks with the Eagles. A difference of 13 slots.

    Did the Titans have a bunch of cap space? Because having $11 MM tied up in that position seems a bit excessive. Especially considering all of the other needs that they have.

    Was this one of those "we've got to spend the money somewhere" type of moves like what the Jaguars typically do?

    They redid his contract as well. Not sure if your number reflects that, but yes, the Titans had 47 million in cap space.
