  1. This is where the mid-level free agent is stuck with the salary cap ramifications. He's a solid CB, which means he is probably worth 2-3 million yearly, but most teams are trying to fill out rosters with younger players to accommodate salary cap loses. So, it's a waiting game for Poole to take a minimum vet offer, or wait out training camp to see who may may get cut/injured before having an opportunity.
  2. Prime, for us this year, quantity could be better than quality. We know the cap situation, and we knew that this draft was extremely important to build out roster for the 2021 season. Moving back 10 spots, and getting an extra 3rd could bring better value. With all picks there is risk, getting more picks through the 2nd and 3rd offers us a better chance to avoid the misses. Especially with the talent level being fairly equal, and the multiple needs we have. Not saying we SHOULD do it, but the value is definitely there.
  3. I got to see quite a bit of Tex A&M games, and Mond is NOT a pro level thrower of the ball. Most of the intel on him is a one read QB, that really only works 1/2 the field, and he doesn't process the game quickly or make progressive reads consistently. I would be super surprised if he was a 2nd round pick, most have him pegged late 3, early 4th. He is a borderline starter at best, but needs a lot of development in decision making and pro level reads. Definite developmental prospect, but not someone we should be picking in the first 3-4 rounds.
  4. I think this says a lot about the front office as well. Getting a player to accept a contract adjustment, and try and accommodate both the players interests along with the franchise. It's possible it was an ultimatum regarding adjust or be cut, but I assume the FO wants to keep young, talented players and build WITH them. Hopefully it's the FO building trust, that will extend to other contracts as we move forward.
  5. Several factors. First, the player and player union want as much guaranteed money as possible, and the incentive deals typically don't offer long term (3+years) guarantees. Second, it's a budgeting issue with the Cap, and that is important to the teams. If the team has incentive laden deals predominantly in force, you have scenarios where players hit those incentives and hit's the cap, and we have to cut players to get under for a league year. Incentives are good for smaller amounts, but you don't want high level FA's signing incentive laden deals, as it makes cap management extremely diff
  6. Mack was one of the best pickups, at the right time for the franchise. He was still playing at a high level.....even if he lost a step from his prime years, he is still a top half center in the league, and a perfect fit for the wide zone. Unfortunately, just not in a place to re-sign him, even at a middle of the pack contract. Best of luck AMack, you were truly one of the best.
  7. I agree that Sewell is a superman as well. I think the new regime would be extremely interested in nailing on this 1st pick, and looking to eliminate the "what if" factor with any top 5-10 prospect. Sewell is the most Pro level player in the draft, and also has upside to develop beyond. Even Lawrence is a risk with how QBs actually develop and look after 5 years in the league. To say that any of the other QB's are "superman" is a stretch at best. I would go with the least question marks, plus a player that has extremely high ceiling.
  8. What is the differentiator of when he plays well and when he doesn't? Typically, when he doesn't play well, there is a very specific reason as to why that is, and all things being equal, 95% of the QBs in the league would have the same outcomes. He is consistently in the top 10 in accuracy, and when you apply the pressure percentages to that, he is consistently in the top 5....and has been for the last 10 years. From a QBR perspective, since he has been in the league, he has been top 10 each year except for 2 (one of which he played through injury, 09). I understand the subjectivity with "
  9. Even if those said coaches are extremely good at what they do, and would help build a winner with any organization? The idea that any coach on a losing team has a losing mentality, or wouldn't offer any upside to a new team is extremely short sighted. With this logic, Bill Belichick should be selling insurance instead of coaching.
  10. An offensive minded coach, and one that is truly gifted with creating an offense based on the talents of his players, will work with any quarterback. Ryan isn't going anywhere because Ryan is still playing at a high level and is compensated as such, and it would be detrimental to the future of this team to part ways in the short term.
  11. When you look at both Ryan and Julio, they haven't seen much deterioration from a physical standpoint either. I understand the concern with Julio and the soft tissue injury, which could linger beyond this year, but when healthy has been dominant. Ryan's strengths have always been the cerebral part of the game, and not the physical tools, which is why he has the potential to play into his late 30's at a high level. I think what Mr.11 was saying was they made a mistake to move on from a QB that is still playing at a high level, and the organization let it play out that way.
  12. They went to playoffs in 2018 and 2019(winning the division), 2020 was wrecked quite a bit with injuries to their entire offensive line. They had better defensive talent than the Falcons, but not offensive talent by far.
  13. Don't get caught up in the rhetoric of that game, it's not like Fields was playing at a high level. Look at the total body of work, and what he brings as a successful NFL head coach. To say he "Quinn'd" it would assume he made these type of decisions for his entire tenure, which he hasn't. If you want to say he made a bad decision in removing Hurts, fine, but don't confuse that decision with him being a bad coach. I'm just saying with the coaches that are available, Pederson is "as good or better", and brings existing head coach experience with a superbowl win.
  14. Not sure I agree with this. It's obvious Blank is looking to have a specific GM that will control the scouting, drafting and cap. Not going to be that blurred line of a coach driving the personnel decisions, outside of the standard coach/GM relationship where scheme will dictate specific choices. Pederson is a really good X's and O's guy, and clearly can adjust his offensive play calling based on his QB and personnel.
