DeMarcus Lawrence, Cowboys prized rookie DE, who was to be their new DeMarcus Ware, was confirmed last night to have suffered a fractured foot.......good for a good 8-12 weeks........at best, probably IR designated to return. It appears that the Boys are on their way to having another year of an "Olay" defense.

Colts get hit again. Looks like G Donald Thomas has re-torn his quad tendon, an injury that cost him the season last year. Last year he underwent surgery for a quad tendon rupture. These latest reports call his recent injury a "torn quad," not distinguishing between muscle vs. tendon. However, tendon is most likely. Any player that has torn his quad tendon is expected to typically lose anywhere from 25-65% muscle strength, even after full rehab. Back-to-back tendon tears to the same quad tendon could very well spell the end of Thomas' career.

Haven't seen anyone post anything on Tyron Smith extension with the Cowboys

8yrs, $97.6MM extension, so he's got 10 more years with them.

OVER THE CAP

Quote:
Smith, who had two years remaining on his rookie contract, received a $10 million signing bonus. His 2014 and 2015 salaries are fully guaranteed to bring the full guarantee of the contract to $22.118 million. Smith's 2016 salary can also become fully guaranteed. $500,000 in yearly salary is tied to participation in workouts.

Yearly salaries of the contract are
$10,000,000(2016), $10,000,000(2017), $10,000,000(2018), $10,000,000(2019), $10,000,000(2020), $10,500,000(2021), $13,500,000(2022), and $13,600,000(2023).
Given his age and quality, sounds like a pretty good deal for the Cowboys. Not sure what happens if he gets hurt in the next couple of years.

Aaron Rodgers: Refs will boost passing offenses this year
Posted by Michael David Smith on August 3, 2014, 6:21 AM EDT


Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers expects passing offenses around the NFL to be even more productive this season than they were last season, thanks to a stricter emphasis on illegal contact, pass interference and defensive holding.

Rodgers said after officials worked a Packers practice that the way the officials are calling those penalties this year, it can only help quarterbacks and wide receivers.

“I think you’re going to see the passing game reffed a little more tightly this year,” Rodgers said.

The best pass defense in the NFL last year was in Seattle, where opposing teams often complained that the Seahawks’ defensive backs got away with grabbing and holding receivers. Rodgers said he hopes penalties are called just as strictly in the Packers’ season opener at Seattle as they were when officials visited the Packers’ practice.

“I was joking with this crew that we might want them to head up to the Pacific Northwest in about a month,” Rodgers said.

If the NFL is serious about its officials getting strict with defensive backs, that will be bad news for teams like the Seahawks with physical pass defenses, and good news for teams like the Packers who rely on their passing offenses.

I don't know. I thought Seattle was over the line last year even though I wanted them to win. The bigger issue to me is consistency. The rules stay the same regardless of the teams and throughout the game. Seattle would take a couple calls because they gambled the refs wouldn't keep throwing flags slowing the game and pissing off the fans and the refs complied. Then somewhere else on Sunday another team is playing and gets a ticky tack call at a crucial time like they had to meet a minimum quota. Pick the rule and enforce it whether that means 20 flags or 0.

Agreed. The problem will be consistency from crew to crew. Whatever is a flag in the eyes of Jerome Booger's crew ought to be a flag in Hochuli's crew and every crew around the league; no matter the teams, no matter the high profile QB. But we all know all games aren't called equally and therein lies the problem.

During preseason, the extra points have been lined up at the 15 yd line. So far 2 have been missed. When they do incorporate it into the regular season (probably in 2015), it seems that it will leave some "hold your breath" element where there was none before.

I like it, anything to make it less automatic. I hope they keep moving it back until it's a 50~60% success rate.
