  1. I’d rather pay an elite guard than a D-lineman. O-line plays all game vs d-line on rotation. You get more for your money. Plus when you have an elite O-lineman guarding your franchise QB, you keep him. We let Norwell walk and we give up on Moton as future LT or we roll the dice and go back to the amino silatolu situation. we aren’t getting a big time FA anyway. We can pick up a cheaper DE who is an up and comer. Draft: Safety, WR, RB, DT, C/G.
  2. I'd rather tag him now and hold him so Gettleman has to wait.
  3. I know this guy’s an idiot, but assuming CMC is *just* a slot receiver, who cares? He played a ton of snaps, was extremely reliable, picked up big third downs, made some splash plays once he got settled in. He’s being used on a majority of plays and that will only increase as our new OC unlocks him. Its just using outdated language to downplay CMC as a player. Look at some #1 WRs and how they have less of an impact. Look at Dez Bryant. There have been some elite RBs this year and in the recent past, but they’re also all in different situations. CMC will have a better environment to show what he can do next season. Don’t really care what his position is called when we use him all game long.
  4. Willy Hernangomez to Charlotte

    The fact that this team can’t find one guy who can be a go to perimeter scorer while other teams seemingly pull them out of their asses every night bugs me so bad. I blame a lot this on Clifford. He doesn’t seem to want scorers, just well rounded guys who are ok at everything. I also blame Cho because he should be better at composing a team unless he defers to Clifford there.
  5. It’s really sad to see this thread bump with no actual news. The team is sitting around waiting for Hurney and nothing will change. I hope the people in the FO here never get another NFL job again— they’re all fuging tools. I hope the current advisers to the team leave with new ownership and keep their shitbird cronyism to themselves. It’s disgusting to watch here in a public setting.
  6. Maybe it's just the fan in me, but he really has rubbed me the wrong way since the end of the season. Being rational and realistic about contract prospects is one thing, but he's literally talking about how he's ready to throw away all his Panthers stuff and get out is pretty harsh/shitty to hear as a fan. Guys can say we'll see how it goes and it's a business, but he's been relatively outspoken about his desire to leave.
  7. I think the more important news is Dawson got a second interview, the rest is just press banter so who cares. Giving Dawson a second interview means we're standing on an edge and the team could very easily hire him. I wish there was a successful way for us as fans to try and push the team to the Dawson side instead of the Hurney side. Maybe the more negative press about the Hurney situation we can conjure, the better for Dawson.
  8. Here’s what I’d do: Tag Norwell to keep other teams at bay for the start of FA. Negotiate a long term deal that’s backloaded. Transition from the Kalils after this season.
  9. I'm pretty set on it now. It needs to be Dawson and if it isn't I'll be disappointed. He's the guy for the job.
  10. Can I get a list of guys who are clearly better candidates that we didn’t call? I don’t buy the guys we interviewed as just being throw aways to clear a path for hurney. We interviewed Dawson last time when Reese was guiding the search. That means he thought Dawson was worth talking to 5 years ago. He’s only gotten more experience since then.
  11. I think he’s giving short shrift to those ther candidates. They aren’t gonna be so lost in an NFL front office that they can’t do anything other than look for the executive bathroom— which is a punchy bs line. all of these candidates would have their own notes on this year’s draft. All you have to do is take the organization’s internal info and add your own. If you’ve interviewed for the team, you’ve probably looked at tape on the team to come up with personnel moves and needs on the roster. Otherwise what the hell is the interview about? A new GM won’t be a disaster. Acting like Hurney is currently holding the entire draft plans and repository of player info in his head is idiotic. Plus, in a new GM situation, no doubt will Hurney, who is still the interim GM, will be required to give info and assist the new GM being acclimated. What will be a disaster is if we don’t make a decisive move in the very near future. We need to set Hurney aside to deal with his issue and we either need to request interviews with more candidates or pick one of the people already in the running.
  12. Ron Rivera the new Belichick

    I’m on board if that’s what we have to do. He’s worked closely with DG and Beane over the years. He’s helped bring in some studs to this team. I think Ron knows how to build a roster and knows what he’s looking for better than anyone thinks. In 2011 he wanted to upgrade our DTs because he saw the deficiency. Hurney’s shitty draft picks (and lack thereof in 2011) gave us crap and we had to wait for DG to do the same thing and get us quality players. Point is Ron wanted that position filled. Ron has wanted a stud Safety since 2012. What are we all clamoring for? Ron has wanted a Sproles-like back since 2012. We finally grab an even better guy this last year. Ron controlled Greg Hardy and turned him into an all pro before he fell apart. Ron tamed Josh Norman and kept him in the playbook and turned him into an all pro before he moved on. Ron helped identify Mario Addison in 2012 and turned him into our best DE. Ron gave Shula the keys to the offense because he gives coaches the chance to become leaders and to grow. Listen to the Eric Washington interview to learn that. Shula ultimately failed but Ron gave him a chance to right his own ship because failure happens to everyone. Some people may have wanted Ron to fire Shula after 2016, but I think it speaks to Rons character that he didn’t can Shula a year after 2015. Ultimately Ron made the move he had to make and I think he earned respect for giving his guys a chance to fix things. Rons not always perfect but I think he’s one of the best coaches this team will ever have and if he gets GM duties, he’ll follow in DG’s footsteps of keeping all coaches and scouts in the decision making process and that will lead to strong results.
