  1. You lost me at trading for a RB. Unless its for a 2030 7th round pick, no thanks.
  2. Sir, this is a Wendys Restaurant.
  3. Yes. The more entertaining video would be the ones where the GMs didn't get the guys they wanted cause someone else took them ahead of their spot. Can't do that to the psyches of rookies though.
  4. Vic had 15.5 sacks. I don't see how you replace him. Can you imagine if we tried to replace him?
  5. Someone has to light up the darkness. lol Pre-draft most people were saying "as long as the picks are in the trenches I'll be happy" and "We don't have room for all these pics so we will probably trade up" Both those things happen and people are still pizzed because it wasn't the exact player they were hoping for. Funny thing is none of us know how well they will work out. A lot of us wanted Taylor or Ford and they're still available in the second round.
  6. All this negativity is just getting on my nerves this morning. lol People going out of their way to be debbie downers.
  7. It's clear you're focused on being negative and that's fine. I was simply bringing up some logical reasons why what happened in the draft might be a good thing. You chose negativity, I'll chose to be positive until proven otherwise. Enjoy your day.
  8. Try looking at the trade as we gave up a 3rd (and received a 6th if I'm not mistaken) to just draft our 2nd rounder a little earlier. Saying we gave up a second and a 3rd, while technically true, makes it sound worse than it is.
  9. They signed Davison, Clayborn, Hageman, JJ Wilcox, and 2 other safeties. We can have a conversation that you now have 3 new guards and only 2 spots to fill them but that still brings me back to my point where now you have potentially good starters and good depth on the O-line and you can't have good depth everywhere on the field. I guess I'd prefer that depth to be at a position that will help us score points and keep MR2 upright and healthy. I'd prefer to be able to grind out the 3rd and 2 plays to keep our offense off the field and keep the defense fresh all game. I guess I'd prefer to make opposing offenses have to play mistake-free football on offense to beat us because MR has time to throw the ball and Freeman has holes to run through all day long. I also have more confidence in DQ to pick later round picks on defense that work out than pick later round picks on the O-line that work out. He's got history of making later round defensive players contribute but not so much with the O-line.
  10. He's on GMFB this morning complaining still about Akiem Hicks jumping ship and complained that they "lost to the Rams and the refs" last year,
  11. Ok, but my point is that your complaining that we can't fill in those depth spots with late round picks. That means your assuming only picks in the first few rounds can make an impact. If that's the case and we used those first few picks on defense, what would the state of the offensive line look like? There wouldn't be less complaining, it would only be directed towards another part of the team.
  12. Umm so would you agree that you could do this exact exercise with ANY NFL roster and get basically the same results? Even if you singled out defense and found a team with some actual great NFL talent as 2nd and 3rd stringers, you'd have to show me their offensive depth to make your argument hold. No team in the NFL has stud depth across all positions. That's why most of the time the team that wins the Superbowl stays injury-free or just happens to only lose guys at positions where they do have depth.
  13. Oh there was another option with Beasley... Sambrailo sucks. I thought RT was an immediate need as well.
  14. And we know DQ does not. He was a stud in Seattle and he turned around our defense after he took over for Richard Smith.
  15. Well, there are 2 ways you can go about this: 1. Assume the defense will suck and we will lose all our games 35-24 and pout about it for 9 months while assuming our draft picks were "reaches" 2. Look at the positives that came out of yesterday and at least be in a good mood until they prove it doesn't work. I'll chose 2 and you can chose 1.
