  1. I thought we'd re-sign him and potentially cut Schraeder. I'm good with this move - he played well in limited action.
  2. I don't think he is worth $7m+ a year at this point in his career, but we'll see... FA is crazy.
  3. Well 73 is obviously better than 63, not sure there were many great guards in the NFL last year. Even Quenton Nelson allowed 23 total pressures — two sacks, four hits and 17 hurries. 2017 was a much better year for guards as a whole. Zach Martin only gave up 11 pressures all year. Decastro wasn't far behind. Martin had an overall PFF grade of 92.2 and Decastro had a 91.7. I don't know if it was a trend, but it did seem like teams were attacking A gap far more last year whether that was blitzing LB's up the middle or running more 'nascar' type packages on 3rd down.
  4. We weren't the only team to suffer poor guard play in 2018. In fact the guard play across the league was truely awful last year.
  5. I'm assuming it's not Ryan vs Brees but rather the respective QB units as a whole. That's the only logic I can think of that makes sense.
  6. Poole might well be back. Bryant hurts the most but can't say I disagree with any of the moves. I honestly think with Alford it's a case of addition by subtraction. Reed was a solid contributer but just couldn't justify that contract with everything else coming up.
  7. When you watch the video, I don't think context matters. It's a pretty shocking video.
  8. I don't get the Goodell hate. The NFL as a product is far more mature than the NBA and a lot of that is down to Goodell. There is a lot wrong with the NBA (soft salary caps, player power, outright tanking, draft lottery to name a few). I'm not saying that it's all down to Silver but he certainly hasn't fixed any of those areas.
  9. I think this is a very underated signing
  10. Henry Anderson and David Irving are interesting guys. Both could play that Shelby role in our base defense and rotational pieces in nickel.
  11. I think we'll be looking to cut him this time next year.
