As I open the game, the big question is on the position switch LB-to-S to anchor our DB chemistry. Did our ultra-vegan cayenne-cleanse program work its magic enough to pull it all together...?

Yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

Okay, then. He's set as our 7-8 group leader for the foreseeable future. Great.

We have, no joke, 14 guys on our roster in the secondary. I want to carry... idano... maybe 9? Where do we go with this?

Code:
Front Office Football Eight D.C. United Roster, Scout Overview Player # Pos Start Exp Current Estimate Future Estimate Cntrct Junker, Josiah 1527LCB 2 45 55 3 yrs. Peterson, Cesar 1523LCB 5 41 41 1 yr. Figures, Garrett 1529LCB 1 28 41 1 yr. Franz, Taylor 1520RCB 3 52 52 4 yrs. Nodin, Cris 1535RCB 5 42 42 3 yrs. Jeffrey, Colton 1547RCB 7 38 38 2 yrs. Boyer, Rondell 1546RCB 3 34 37 2 yrs. Reese, Miles 1642SS 7 50 50 2 yrs. Rodgers, Jared 1624FS 9 47 47 2 yrs. Sampson, Carter 1633FS 6 42 42 1 yr. Scott, Tom 1630FS 2 36 48 3 yrs. Arndt, Luke 1638FS 7 34 34 2 yrs. ##Brittain, A.J. 1645FS 3 25 40 2 yrs. Cassell, Austin 1636FS 1 16 35 4 yrs. Trippi, Caiden 665 LS 4 21 21 2 yrs.

Well, step by step, who's in now?

FS Arndt is the chem anchor, he has to stay. Ratings will drop, he's likely inactive forever now.

Who is too capable to cut? CB Junker (7-8 no chem), CB Franz (7-8 no chem), CB Jeffrey (8-9 48P), SS Reese (8-9 91 P), S Scott (8-9 31P). So, that's 6 guys who have to make it.

What is the case for each guy after that?

CB Peterson: ST, End, 51P, can play anywhere, bump 62
CB Figures: rookie could pop, ST 70/82
CB Nodin: Bump 86, Int 73, 96P, signed 3y, usable as CB2
CB Boyer: no voids, 92P, but needs starts
S Rodgers: Bump 67, Zone 37, no voids, End, 82P
S Sampson: 4y cohesion, Zone 77, Bump 70, 07P tho
S Brittain: cheap, has starts, 94P
S Cassell: Zone 24/74, PH 51, could pop?

Okay, I will keep the two rookies around, but UDFA Figures has the better shot of making the 53. Boyer and Sampson (!) get cut. Brittain stays for now, he could be Mr. 53 or Mr. 54, depending on my options for end-of-bench chem guys...I like cheap, strong, and re-signable for that job in this league.

...then I realize that DC was only at 60 players, no need to cut anyone for preseason. All for naught, but that's my thinking.

Busy day here. Nothing super-exciting to report.

LB Gardner's holdout costs him his job. Enjoy minsal, pal. We'll carry only 5 LB into this season - zero injuries but still dicey.

Starting rookies at both tackle positions. Just not pleased with the sack-a-game from our run-first RT, the guy I decided to commit to years ago. He'll sit and chem.

The pair of titanic receivers are in season 7. Doesn't feel right. We're likely a playoff team, I think, but the likelihood of them retiring ringless is looming really large now. Just not putting the shoulder into this that it takes, perhaps. Or the collective cumulative effect of the draft-solvers and gameplan-solvers lapping me... that could be it, also.

Prediction: Ravens go 11-5, #5 seed

So, cutdown day for the United/WFT...whatevs. RB2 was one to watch...undrafted rookie Coates bumped mightily in camp and he'll get his hundred touches or so. I had him in my to-be-drafted queue but didn't like his bar profile - I still don't but a +10 preseason move is enough to give him a look this year.

WR Damon Malone - looks like Father Time finally caught up in coverage. 40/40 now. There's, like, no way we could still feature him... right? Right? (Okay, I split things up pretty fairly, but Malone still in the featured slot role in 11 formation, which will bring him a lot of looks)

Okay, some veteran cuts here, too.

Hard to say how much having a really productive WR1 has been underneath it all here. He's a 40/40 now and should get 110-130 targets instead of his steady diet of 180-200. We have capable players to fill in, and the roster overall looks... pretty good.

Prediction: 11-5, #3 seed

BTW, the league scout is very fond of one of my Ravens' undrafted rookie pickups:

Ravens Reclaim Division, #1 Seed With 12-4 Season

I wanted to predict this would happen... glad it did.

GML: Baltimore Ravens 2125

Quick reacts:

QB Lyle...wow... would have guessed 42/18 was beyond him, yay
Passing attack of 7.54 ypa is league best - gotta be happy with that
Targets got really consolidated (more than expected) but ok...
#11 PVC posted career best 1544/11 on 174 targets, yes pls
TE Gilbertson target hog for 6.54 ypt... mmm ok i guess
Running game pretty meh, no shock given the OL we started
We don't win with the running game, though... Slaten 2.49 ypc lol

Defensively, PR% was 4th overall, so we got what we wanted there
Baump and Espinosa led the way, Turnbull 35 pressures but 6 sacks
PD% was, again, just not good enough - 52.1% for 24th, yucko
We held opponents to mere 5.52 ypa, I'm having trouble squaring that
So, overall pass rush and keep-it-short played out okay for Pass D
Hardly any interceptions - that's the missing piece there, okay then

Anyway, a legit elite pass-first, okay-at-the-rest team, as it should be

Very pleased, overall.

DC Team Wins Division at 11-5, Hosts Dallas in Playoff Opener

Exactly as projected... good enough to take the division again, not good enough to really figure into the top tier, as we would have preferred.

GML: Washington Football Team 2125

So, my quick takeaways:

QB Clancy remains a high end, but not top tier, performer - no shock
His 6.84 ypa is okay, 34/19 is fine, overall rating 86.6 is fine
WR Malone still our top guy, and 8.55 ypt says that was okay, at least
Carrubba and Roach behind him were both lesser performers
We barely even tried to run the ball, 20-79 average per game, meh
Offense, overall, basically replacement level, or a click better, that's it

On D, pressure was top-ten, teamwide 22.4 PR% okay not great
LB Welch (slotted at DE) and DT Pascal led the way with 12, 10 sacks
Nobody else behind them really added much, Sinclair 7 sacks on 14 tackles
Overall good against the run, mediocre against the pass (not thrilled)
One day we'll outgrow non-chem LBs Duda and Welch, but not soon
Rotation at DB seemed okay, Junker Reese Franz came out w/top grades

Overall, this is a "pretty good" team - probably has been all along, but papered over by having a really good QB/WR1 battery overpowered in its effect. Run this season 100 times, and we'd get a few byes, a few miss-the-playoffs, but a lot of 9-11 win seasons, I think. "Pretty good"

First time in a while I'm comfortable saying the Baltimore team is the better of the two. More coherence there right now, having two stud receivers can do that, even if you don't max them out.

Really hard to complain about my two teams earning draft picks 30 and 31.


That said... earning the first-ever QuikSand/KickStand bowl game would have been awfully sweet.


Very good season, falling just short of great in back to back weeks.

Ravens 2126 Offseason

Okay, so we won't sneak up on anyone now. We're legit, we hope.

Retirement losses unsurprising: CB Bernardino (CB2 and group leader) will be felt, but we had a plan for this in place... and RT Sheldon we had soured on (and semi-replaced) anyhow, we'll be okay without all those sacks allowed.

So... quick summary is: not much cap space to play with (receivers need renegs this year), not a ton of urgent "needs," as things ought to be for a team that is already where we want to be, mostly.

Will do the usual routine here, but I doubt I'll have a lot to document, really.

...it does strike me that this last season was the first time I have ever carried 4x QBs for chemistry. Is it possible that had something material to do with Lyle's performance spike? Seems unlikely, but... not completely far-fetched.

Baltimore was very good across the range.
Washington/DC was great in punt returns, and above average elsewhere.

...this is going to be a rather tight budget year, that much is clear already. not sure whether that means I need to "get a lot from our rookie class" or "get the F out of the rookie class" but we're gonna be pinched. WR Behne is asking for a Brinks truck, oddly enough, after the years our two wideouts had, respectively, that's amusing. (Might reflect on my usage choices, as well)

Anyway, that $140m in cap space is mostly spoken for, I'll just say that much right now. K Thomas picked the wrong year to be sitting out there as a $20m free agent, I fear. LB Sorota... doubly so, for his $30m request.

Okay, LB is going to be tricky. Crawford (9th, 48/48) is good enough and has endurance to take a full time load. He won't extend cheaply, but we have him for this year - he's fine. Duran (5th, 39/39) a lesser player but mainly the same, a decent OLB starter. Lang (2nd, 38/49) is ready for a larger role and could play anywhere. These three are the only guys we have signed, and the other two from last year's roster both want to get paid more than I expect to be able to handle. Could get rather tricky, will be on the lookout for a cheap guy via FA or trade.

G Morris Mauriello is out only retirement, not a shock but I had been hoping he'd stay, as he'd be part of a good (chem) turn coming at OL maybe next season. Alas, not a major loss.

Yes, at some point I might catch up to the real world, and go with WFT. In no hurry to do so, locally.

Anyway - bottom line is more cap space, fewer pressing obligations (I think, on first glance), and I think this team could be looking to make a move here or there.

Ravens manage to reneg two stars (WR Behne, G Emmons) and that's going to have to suffice for an update on what is usually a busy stage. We're just going to be cap-strapped this offseason, trying to hold things together.

Posting a "picks for sale" thread presently.

We spent some real money - extending QB Clancy, and signing something old and something new:


Washington Football Team
KickStand
RDT Malachi Carlisle
5 years, $245,000,000 (Bonus: $205.0M. Salary: $8.0M, $8.0M, $8.0M, $8.0M, $8.0M.)

Washington Football Team
KickStand
FL Damon Malone
2 years, $28,000,000 (Bonus: $16.0M. Salary: $6.0M, $6.0M.)
40
40


Looks like the best rejected offer for DT Carlisle was $63m/yr, so we'll have to guess hit this one about right by way of more bonus money. Hard to say when the numbers work out that way - the other offer might have been ansurdly backloaded, etc. Anyway, we got out guy, big run stopper for the middle for the next five seasons.

Free agency: DE Loadout and WR PVC both re-sign, no surprise but glad to have it done and in hand. Baump was a capout, to give us some breathing room for this year, PVC was a legit extension.

We signed an end-of-roster affinity OT, that's all this stage for the Ravens.

Glad to see we re-signed WR Roach. My bad in shorting him playing time in the penultimate year of his last contract - meaning he was pissed last year and unwilling to extend directly. He's clearly worth more to us (cohesion, chem) than a random team, but we were at risk of losing him even while our longtime WR1 is fading before our eyes a la Larry Fitzgerald. Anyhow, Roach got offered $17m/yr and $10m/yr elsewhere, but took our offer of 2/38. Feeling pretty good about hitting the market correctly there.

A new signing, who may prove to be important in time: DT Jessie Hopper. He has skills to play some at DT/DE but his main role will be to secure our D7 chem leadership in the 3-4 group, for continuity. Ear-pinner LB Sinclair is currently in the way of him taking the lead, we'll see how to best resolve that in time. But I can comfortably draft 5-6 and 10-11 guys there knowing that architecture will remain in place for the foreseeable future.

My scouts graded him VU, it's a need position, so we reached a bit I guess. He was #300-something on the big board, though that's weighted by position and TE is a low weight... so, who knows. My quest to get legit production from the TE1/TE2 roles continues.

Not in love here, but he's one of those best good fit available picks - needed more contributors along the OL, he could get the start at RT right away if he shows up looking good. Combines and bars both look fine (that 5.31 is over the old threshold, I don't know if that matters these days) and his chem fit should be strong.

Anyway, quick roundup of free agency movement:

Stages 8-9 are an unusually disappointing stage for the Ravens, we got outbid on multiple targets (I'm still feeling a bit cap strapped, so had less ammo than usual)... RB Joyner was my mental RB2, but he and another target guy at LB opted for AI Seattle...three more defensive role-players picked other offers...so it goes. We did re-sign WR Collins, a centerpiece for our chemistry system, and C Cook, for whom we did have competition. So, continuity there, that's good.

I think I have decided to not re-sign TE Gilbertson. He'll start again this year, probably churn out his usual 7-ish ypt, and be in the all-pro conversation. But I'm not sure he's a $30m must-have. Letting him walk will give me enough breathing room to perhaps field a credible LB corps this season, since the rookie class has offered me virtually nothing there.

Free agency update here is boring - we tried to bring in a RB but missed, we managed to bring in a veteran S but I doubt he makes the team, and we did re-up for one bonus-free year with a favorite of mine, CB Cesar Peterson - a low-skills but versatile DB who fits our system well and plays special teams. I'll find some snaps for him here and there, despite being fairly deep at DB now.

We have spent down much of our cap space, but there are paper players in there - the new DB, our non-affinity TE making $24m - meaning I have more space than meets the eye, really. I'm regretting missing out on the stud C in free agency a few stages ago - landing him, even at $55m, would have made me happier with this roster, I'm convinced.

Anyway, no crisis here. Things basically on target.

...oh, I guess it's noteworthy that my longtime DT leader Pascal took another offer. I honestly wasn't sure whether I decided not to offer him, or just assumed he'd go unwanted. Either way, I have a chemistry plan for the D7 group, and recently signed a serious full-time DT, so Pascal wasn't a priority. He would have given us some cohesion up front, to be sure, but I think we will be okay without him and his $26m price tag.

Green Bay gives him a 2yr deal (12th year guy with fading ratings) and he gives them... well, a little bit of affinity fluff (four guys total connect with him). Maybe that was part of the thinking there?

So, after waiting out early free agency, feeling cap strapped, I decide to make what moves I can upon depleted demands for a couple targets:


Baltimore Ravens
QuikSand
TE Archie O'Donnell
2 years, $6,720,000 (Bonus: $20K. Salary: $3.1M, $3.6M.)
24
32
Baltimore Ravens
QuikSand
SLB Tyrus Sorota
1 year, $14,600,000 (Bonus: $9.3M. Salary: $5.3M.)
58
58
Baltimore Ravens
QuikSand
K Mario Thomas
2 years, $24,560,000 (Bonus: $14.0M. Salary: $5.3M, $5.3M.)
82
82


Glad to have LB Sorota back for one more year, we just needed a legit presence at LB and he was the clear choice for talent, cohesion, chemistry all wrapped together. If I have to do a few capouts or whatever to make the cap work this year, so be it.


Basically same goes for the kicker Marlo "That Girl" Thomas. Best guy out there, and my theoretical special teams push experiment now continues.


The twist? I basically made these moves by deciding I would not extend TE Gilbertson. He responds with a holdout, natch. That will take some noodling, because I most definitely do not have an easy path to meeting his demands.

By the way, here's the BenBot assessment of the BAL draft... ranked mid-pack, better than usual for us:


18
BAL
QuikSand
1(31) SS Ian Gallagher 33/51
2(31) RT Levon Linquist 32/53
3(31) LG Robaire Newsom 28/51
7(31) RB Bob Marischen 30/42
5(31) FL Shaun Weigle 27/42
4(31) LCB Donny Kasnia 30/35
6(31) SLB Chester Christie 17/44
1(31) SS Ian Gallagher 33/51
2(31) RT Levon Linquist 32/53
3(31) LG Robaire Newsom 28/51
7(31) RB Bob Marischen 30/42
5(31) FL Shaun Weigle 27/42
4(31) LCB Donny Kasnia 30/35
6(31) SLB Chester Christie 17/44
63.9


On sneak peek, I basically agree with the rankings above - Gallagher looks like he will be a solid DB, probably a CB1/2 for us. The two OL both look like standard good-enough contributors, not stars, but both inclined to help in the passing game. DB Kasnia, I hope, will be a preseason boom and work his way into our plans.

Signed a solid veteran guard, good addition for us. Latitude to let T Lyons walk - we've been using him at LG anyway, after his one season at LT allowing 19 sacks.

LB/Edge Max Welch is holding out, I will try to pay him for only two years, but he could be a cut (in this weird one-shot system, holdouts are very tough to manage). I'm deep enough along the D7, I wanted to get past Welch and Duda before long anyhow... so I'm not into the 4yr deal he's demanding.

Our rookie draft is rated 30th... yeah, I know, I know.


30
WAS
KickStand
1(30) NT Bubba Sherman 47/59
2(30) TE Blake Calloway 23/46
3(30) SE Arturo Schultz 23/40
6(30) K Mike Lyons 47/59
4(30) SLB Terrell Houston 17/42
5(30) RCB Jared Garrett 22/43
1(30) NT Bubba Sherman 47/59
2(30) TE Blake Calloway 23/46
3(30) SE Arturo Schultz 23/40
6(30) K Mike Lyons 47/59
4(30) SLB Terrell Houston 17/42
5(30) RCB Jared Garrett 22/43
55.8


My sneak peek suggests DL Sherman will be pretty good, perhaps more inside than outside... TE Calloway will at least compete for a receiving rotation slot... Edge LB Houston is not what we had hoped for... and the rest are a mixed bag but nothing special.

Well, the Ravens are trying to trade for an all-pro caliber LB. There are some warning signs that this might be on thin ice, but if not we should have a formal announcement that he's aboard, and our Sam troubles are suddenly behind us. Stay tuned...

The BAL stud LB trade doesn't look like it will happen, I can't quite sort out what went wrong, but I think our trade partner might not have sorted out all the nuts and bolts of the salary cap. So it goes.

FB Lionel Arndt

Schenk re-signs for continuity and run-stopping at LB, good.

But the big move here is landing DT Turner. 5th year guy, high endurance, skills-wise fits in as a long term asset in the base package and rotating elsewhere -- but for us, he's a chemistry build-around guy. 97 Leadership, 95 Personality. We'll defer to him as our leader for the next 6-8 years, hopefully. He's in the 8-9 group, but it turns out that the main load of our D7 happen to be in the 7-8 group...so this is as close to harmless as imaginable. Big move for us.

Who's trapped in the 8-9 nowhere land? DE Espinosa, LB Sorota, and LB Lang. I like all three, but no major problems here. Sorota surely in his last season anyway. Espinosa may or may not make it past this year - he's basically just a pass rusher, and we have been able to just "find" guys who fit that role easily enough. Lang projects as a good-enough starter at WLB, but not a centrally important guy, despite our lack of depth there. We'll survive, with or without him.

After releasing former D7 leader Middleton, we might have the cap space to extend TE Gilbertson. I don't think he is truly "worth it" but the crunch year is this year, not next year, and if we could squeeze him in this season then paying him too much next season won't hurt as much. It's back in play, I'll say that much for right now.

The LB Sinclair holdout is a snap - he's in the way of group chemistry and picks that exact moment to hold out. See ya, thanks for the pass rushing, good luck on ya! (Narrator voice: he will not find work)

LB Welch is tougher - I put in an extension, he turned it down. I have counted on him as a build-around pass rusher. He wants nearly $50m a year - I don't know what to do, really.

Well...LB Tre Hjerppe (huh?) is aboard to potentially fill that role. Now I see the method to my Friday madness, three days later. Not an affnity, but a guy who could pin 'em back and rush the passer. For $5m a year. Okay, then, that gives me the flexibility to play hardball with Welch after all.

LB Jasper was a nice after-draft find two years ago, this year he's on a 1yr deal to "prove it" again. He might not be in our long term plans, with a chem problem looming (he would take the lead at some point, and that doesn't work from where we stand now). So, short term plans right here... LB Trammell and Maloney are the alternatives for the role we had in mind for Jasper.

Ok, that's it for "excitement" in this stage. The Pass rushing crew is the biggest unsettled segment of the roster, I reckon.

Ravens after camp only have 63 players on the roster... so the real push on TE Gilbertson, still holding out, isn't until next stage. I have a backup plan for all those TE targets - it's a cloud of FB Hillhouse, three-bar guy Huffman, and special teams ace Hartman. My guess is they would do okay, but not great, with the 150+ targets they'd end up with.

We're at a full 70 players, so work to do here.

I'm trying to click in a third QB for chemistry, that dream will live on after 60, we'll see about 53.

At RB, I will give McInerney another year, and Coates with him. Last year they were basically the whole show. I've got four hangers on looking for that RB3 role and maybe a clearer shot next year after we decline to re-sign McInerney. What matters in a running back? Indeed, Dr Freud, what do women want?

At TE, in keeping with my track record, it's a near tossup for TE2 between our 2nd round rookie and some guy we grabbed off the trash heap after the draft. UDFA Lee Lester is a local guy from U of Md, plays special teams, and is better for chemistry. The rookie with the $4m plus signing bonus might be a trivially better receiver. Right now, faith in them is high enough we discard our non-affinity stopgap.

WR group looks okay - Malone is fading, and likely takes another punishing ratings hit in preseason. Carubba and Roach are okay at WR1/WR2, but we won't have that build-around target any longer. That will sting a bit. Rookie Schultz will make the team but never be a serious factor, I think.

...

LB Max Welch reported to camp - good news for us. So, we likely get him for his two remaining years, that's ideal. That will push Hjerppe out of a job. Circle of life and all that.

Lots of tidying up. Cutdown to 53 will be tricky here, a few tough calls at LB, DB especially.

Well, TE Gilbertson comes back after training camp and reports. So, we potentially do have him in the mix - I guess I'm glad I didn't cut him in the purge to 60, which was in play.

The quick perusal of the rookie class, including UDFAs, yields only three easy cuts. Not a bad crop, but that means I need to find cuts elsewhere to get to 53. Some work ahead. Busy day, not sure when I'll get to that.

out for now

Ravens cutdown... ok, TE Gilbertson will get most of his usual workload. Fine.

CB Kasnia gets cut - ratings are going to be fine (he was +5 in preseason) but a Pers 2 means no chem, and for a marginal skills guy, no dice here.

Yeah, file sent. I'm tired AF.

Ravens should win 11-12 games again, I'd hope.

Well, the duel between my two rookie TEs is still not settled - they both bomb in preseason and look dreadful. Great.

Meh. File is in. Still tired.

Should go 10-6 this year, I'm worried about the lack of good receiving targets. Might be on legit decline here.

Regular season in the books...

...so, if I told you that my two teams would total only 18 wins this season, you'd probably say - okay, disappointing, but it happens. Maybe they both fell onto modestly hard times a bit and went 9-7 or something? Like...that's within the range of reasonable outcomes.

Or, it could have been this...

RAVENS STARE INTO ABYSS, WITH 4-12 WASHOUT SEASON


Summary page here: GML: Baltimore Ravens 2126



So, I'm taking a quick look to see what happened... I did my file after a long day, wasn't in the best shape to prep it, and felt like I likely messed up special teams... but how bad could it have been?


The last round of releases look right, so it wasn't the AI stepping in and cutting all mu affinity gimps, that was my first thought. Nope, I cut down to 53 and got everyone in line, it seems.


So, did I leave in a preseason QB as the starter? I have had that happen in my weaker moments, for a week one surprise. Nope, Lyle the whole way, and he was... at least okay, with an 87.8 rating - not all star stuff but fine.


We were +4 on turnovers. Defense was unimpressive but not atrocious. Run game was weak but that's common for us.



WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED?
