long term deal for hardy was never in the plans

90 posts in this topic

Difference here is that Hurney grossly overpaid for our RBs (who then suffered from a crappy OL, poo coaching and injuries). Gettleman simply tagged an elite DE to keep the core together and to give Ealy time to adjust.

 

I don't see your point at all.

13 mil to help our weaknesses. It's not really that hard to understand.

There were a lot of tackles that went to other teams.

Protecting your franchise QB is more important than keeping a luxury player at DE.

Not sure I would call Hardy a luxury

Then you assume too much. The WR market was filled with guys like Decker who got overpaid. What? You think an extra 13 million would have persuaded Nicks to join us after taking less with The Colts?

 

The fact is we're repeating what got us to the dance in the first place. Defense, possession, and the run game.

I hope that the best situation for Greg pans out, whether it be in Carolina or somewhere else.

He went from a top 10 lock to a 5th round pick to a part of one of the most dominant DLs in the league.

Decker is a poor example.  He only got $15M guaranteed.  The Jets can walk away from that contract after two years with no penalty.  They got a good deal on Decker.

In case you didn't notice, our pass blocking was poo last year too. Thus we adapted to defenses blitzing.

yeah, having 18mil tied up in rb's and a lb year after year isn't the same as keeping much more than a luxury in Hardy for 1 year..

 

 

the only spot I'm really concerned with is LT..  we'll have to see how that shakes out.  If they get some picks for Hardy then that's a major plus..

    • I'd say there is a decent chance he will be available at our 3rd/4th. Not guaranteed, but the CB class is so deep, I could easily see teams passing on him. Don't forget last years CB class, while not on the same level as this one, was also decent and 20 CBs went in the first four rounds (5 per round). We weren't the only teams to select CBs last year. 60% of non-Carolina teams selected a CB in the first found rounds last year. Last year and this year was a great opportunity for us to rebuild the secondary with young/cheap solid players. Anyway, I think even with their injuries, Moreau and Jones could still be picked ahead of him, so him slipping to say CB 15+ is possible and I think that could easily end up being end of the 3rd. He might fall a little more, but I don't see him slipping more than that. There is a definite drop off around there where he would be good enough that you'd ignore the character/speed concerns. 



    • I think this is making the assumption that the NFL ever really sees what it is doing as wrong. That seems to really only happen when litigation/large sums of money are involved.
