We are going on the road into a very hostile Atlanta. Single elimination from here on out. If we win a game like this that will be a serious character builder for this team. To go on the road take the division than make a run in the playoffs would go along way in building a winning culture for the franchise. In a down year still finding ways to win, make it to the playoffs, then make some noise.
All we need to do is get into the dance and anything can happen. Treat every game we have now as win or go home.
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
