  1. Keep in mind that this 4-12 team would have won quite a few more games if not for some really dumb coaching moves and mental errors (not jumping on the ball on the onside kick in the Dallas game, Gurley not going into the end zone just to name a couple). This 4-12 team could have been a playoff team last year IF not for those issues. This 4-12 team has/had the talent to be a playoff team last year, so why not this upcoming year?! I don't expect them to win the SB this upcoming year, even if they nail the draft, but it is possible.
  2. Social media drags almost everybody at some point in time. I don't pay any attention to social media!
  3. So Ezekiel Elliott was set-up to fail?! He went 4th overall in 2016. I would be shocked at Harris going 4th as well, but I don't think he is set-up to fail...
  4. He could suit up for the Texans and just throw picks all day, everyday, until they agree to trade him. He technically holds all the cards...
  5. This is not true at all. If we trade down, we will be getting an extra 1st round pick next year. We could easily bundle that with our 1st round pick to trade up next year, and if next year there isn't a QB we want then we trade one of those first round picks to get an extra 1st rounder the year after that...rinse and repeat until we get that QB we want, when that time is here.
  6. I believe that is very possible to get a willing trade partner, and get worthy compensation. After all, it is the #4 overall pick...
  7. You are making it sound like there is no chance of another team being interested in trading up...even though it happens every year.
  8. That is an easy question to answer. You trade down this year, getting more picks this year plus a first and second next year. You can use our 2 first round picks next year to trade up and get a QB if there is one there that we feel is a must have. If there isn't, we can trade down one of our firsts next year and get a second first round pick the year after...rinse and repeat until we have our replacement for when MR retires. My 2 cents...
  9. Multiple sources said JaMarcus Russell and Johnny Manzell were going to be a franchise QBs...don't think either of them worked out for those franchises that drafted them... Those sources can be, and have been, wrong. I'm not trying to predict the future, I just hope that whoever we draft is the right choice...no matter what position they play.
  10. They'll just let Russell Gage be our back-up QB!
  11. There is a lot of talent on this team already. I would expect immediate success. I'm not saying SB or fire everybody, but if we go 0-16 changes need to be made. I honestly expect to be playoff contenders this upcoming year. If we miss the playoffs but have a decent record, 10-6 to 6-10 range, then give it another year...my 2 cents
  12. I hope your name is Henry!!! lol😀
  13. I like your thought process, but the risk/reward I can't really wrap my head around. Sure if we get a NT in those rounds and he turns out to be average, then that is a good reward. If we draft a NT in 1st or 2nd round and he turns out to be all-pro, that would still be a good reward. Every draft pick is a gamble. There are just higher expectations from early draft picks in comparison to lower draft picks, and every year there are lower draft picks that outshine higher draft picks...
  14. I still think a trade down in rd 1 and draft Christian Barrmore from Bama makes sense. The DL would be : Marlon Davidson-End, Barrmore-NT, Grady-End LBs would be: Mykal Walker-OLB, D Jones-ILB, Foye-ILB, Dante Fowler-OLB. That would be nice. All 4 LBs can blitz well, the Ends can definitely set the edge, and Barrmore has shown at Alabama that he can penetrate. There would be no way our opponents would know where the pressure would be coming from...
  15. Maybe they are beating their man, but then another blocker picks them up or the QB scrambles away from the pressure/throws the ball before the pressure gets to him...
  16. Tell me what you guys think about this: Draft Barrmore, DT from Alabama, have him play NT, have Grady and Marlon Davidson play DE in a 3-4, and move Fowler to OLB. Then we would have our 3 starting DL and 4 LBs(Fowler, Foye, Deion Jones, Mykal Walker)?
  17. RB, CB, and EDGE are the three must upgrade spots in my opinion...in that order.
  18. I played with it for about 20 minutes, resturcturing several contracts, resigning several of our FAs, and had about $5.6 mil in cap space...don't really have a clue how I did it, but I did...lol
  19. I was actually pulling for the Bucs, even though I can't stand Brady. I wanted Mike Evans to get a ring. He earned my respect when he held on to the ball on the sidelines when Keanu Neal laid him out!
  20. I was only referring to his ability to set the edge against the run. By no means am I saying Fowler was dominant or had a great year. I just think he played very well against the run. I do not think Fowler is the answer at DE.
  21. Sure, Aaron has a whole lot more sacks. Not saying Aaron isn't the better DT. Aaron also has 49 more tackles in 17 more games. Sacks aren't the only stat. Aaron Donald is the better DT, but Grady Jarrett isn't some scrub taking up space. He is a very good/great DT himself. My OPINION is that the gap between the two of them isn't huge. Donald: 337 Tackles in 110 games Jarrett: 288 tackles in 93 games
