Yeah in no way would our roster look this bad without the bad contracts strapping us for the past 3 years. Gettleman has been putting us in position to drop these bad contracts and has been slowing building the back end of the roster and drafting well.
Your right on lukes personality but you forget he is reigning DPOY and he has an agent. He's likely to get the highest LB salary going.
Except he won't be the reigning dpoy when. His contract talks come up. He'll get paid very well for a MLB but it will most likely cap out at around 10-12 mil a year. We are looking at around a 50-60 mil a year contract which is totally manageable in today's nfl.
For anyone who thinks we aren't going to be able to field quality talent because of these contracts doesn't really get how the NFL has changed in the last 10 years.
Yeah somewhat. I mean when the qb looks like he has no idea how to read a defense and is running around like a chicken with his head cut off there is something else going on besides the offense as a whole sucking.
I'm not talking about the plays where he immediately got rocked. That's on everybody
You know most qbs don't come in knowing how to read nfl defenses. That takes years of practice and work to truly get.
People are praying for this kid to fail so hard they'll pull double standards left and right.
Sorry, but I'm with Mr. Scott on this one. Sure it would be nice to have his talent on the team. No doubt he could help us. And for a 6 or 7 he would be a steal.
But, what happens when you finally trust him. You are in a playoff push and you have to check the news every morning to see if he is still on the team. Or if he messed up and is gone. Now you've lost that roster spot at the most inopportune time.
He may never screw up again. In which case, he is worth having.
But you cannot tell me you will never be completely comfortable with him. You will always be wondering when will he blow up.
I would much rather continue to draft, or bring in a FA or two, to build the WR corp.
You can count the number of times we've been to the playoffs on your hand. You have to get to the playoffs before you can be worried about who may or may not be there. To get there you need talent. How many times do we bitch and moan about our receivers not getting open?
We can get a guy for pennies who has the skill set of a number 1.
There's things called calculated risks. That would be one of them. Teams that win often and consistently take those risks. Teams that think like scot make it to the playoffs once in a blue moon and never have back to back winning seasons.
Break the cycle.
Btw people can change and given how our team is set up putting him around good character guys will only influence him.
Don't listen to scots piss poor arguments. They are fundamentally weak and he knows this
that just isn't a sound argument. just because something hasn't worked in the past doesn't mean it can't work.
we aren't blindly throwing money around here. we wouldn't be making some sort of insane, crippling investment.
i'm not even saying we should make the move. all i'm saying is it shouldn't be thrown out the window without further investigation.
you say it wouldn't be smart business, but if a team picks him up and he explodes they'll look pretty damn smart for spending a low draft pick on him. it isn't smart business to dismiss options without fair consideration.
If they arent Boy Scouts like scot is. He doesn't want them. What do you understand man?!?!?
not trolling. it's not much different than attributing victory in a football game to god's favor… it's not intended as arrogance, and therefore isn't reflective of an arrogant person, but it is pretty silly when you think about it… isn't god blessing you with victory a curse of defeat (or ignoring the prayers for victory) for the other team? i think we went through this with teb0w a few years back and everyone got all huffy then, too. not a criticism of the person, only of the rationality of the belief.
apologies to anyone who was offended, but really, get a grip.
lol you are smarter than that Philly. You knew exactly what you were doing when you posted that and you knew what type of reaction you were going to get from people. Especially bringing up something like that out of the tinderbox.
