I liked the guy as a prospect when we drafted him but hated trading away future picks and still do. Wether he completely flops or does great doesn't really change that.

Trading a 3rd+6th for a 4th straight up isn't something you should be doing IMO. Entering every draft short on picks when you focus on building through the draft and mainly ignore free agency isn't the best idea either.

I just hate that we go into seemingly every offseason over the cap and short on draft picks. Makes it extremely difficult to add a signifigant amount of talent. Again just my opinion.

In other words, we need a new GM

Yep. And I remember 99% of the huddle screaming when Hurney made the draft day trade to get this guy.

Maybe.. Just maybe the staff knows a little more than the masses on the huddle (myself included).

Sometimes I do believe you can be right about this. Then there are the rest of the times when I think our Front Office is still learning on the job.

This years draft was amazing. If we continue this trend we might actually get better.

They certainly know how to not win football games.

Then I think your memory is a bit fuzzy. Many were happy that we selected Alexander, although naturally most lamented that we had to give up next year's 3rd.

Generally speaking, I would say 70% of the Huddle thought we had a great draft, with many of us stating it had been one of the best since the early 2000's.

Probably the best trade of the year.

Not if Joe Adams doesn't pan out. Either way though, I like Frank.

A lot of people forget this guy was a possible first/second rounder before a test erroneously detected a heart condition, which kept him out of the combine. If that didn't happen we would never have been able to pick him.

Joe Adams wasn't involved in the trade in any way. He was picked with our original 4th. We traded a 3rd and 6th for the 4th directly in front of our pick.

Its like every year Hurney is taking a little more money out of the savings account to roll the dice one more time. Ever been gambling in vegas? Howd that work out for you?

Oh good, another thread hijacked by Hurney haters, because we certainly don't have enough of those already,
