Will Gettleman be tempted to draft Gurley @ 25?

16 February 2015 - 08:02 AM

Was just listening to talk on the NFLN about Todd Gurley. He's recovering from an ACL right now, but we all know what kind of talent He posses. The injury will most likely cause him to still be on the board at 25 and it sounds like we're moving on from DeAngelo... How tempted will Gettleman be and how big would the huddle meltdown be?

Expansion draft 20 years ago today...

15 February 2015 - 02:30 PM

Panthers/Jaguars expansion draft occurred 20 years ago today. 

 

Here's how it went down: http://en.wikipedia....expansion_draft

 

Here's a link to an article from the NY times discussing how it went down at the time and contrasting each team's approach: 

 

 

Jacksonville began the National Football League's expansion draft with a flourish yesterday, selecting the veteran quarterback Steve Beuerlein with the first pick. The Jaguars then ended the draft with a bang by selecting five consecutive players who will earn $1 million or more in 1995.

 

That group includes a threesome of disappointing first-round draft picks -- Giants' tight end Derek Brown, Washington receiver Desmond Howard and Patriots' guard Eugene Chung.

 

In between, Jacksonville and the Carolina Panthers, the other expansion team, selected players who came cheap during the N.F.L.'s first expansion draft in 19 years. The big names on the list for Carolina were Steelers' cornerback Tim McKyer, Cleveland receiver Mark Carrier and the Jets' backup quarterback Jack Trudeau.

 

Jacksonville and Carolina took different tacks, and only time will tell which was better. The Jaguars appear to have the better roster, but the Panthers will have more money to work with during the free agency period, which begins tomorrow.

The Panthers, who selected 35 players, will pay more than $9 million on their salaries and picked mainly younger players. Carrier was the only player they selected who will make $1 million next season.

 

The Jaguars, by contrast, took 31 players and spent a bit more than $15 million in selecting Beuerlein, who will earn $2 million in 1995; Brown; Howard; Chung; New Orleans linebacker James Williams, and Packers' running back Reggie Cobb, who will make about $1 million each next season. Those six players will account for nearly half of the $15 million.

Will Gettleman pursue JPP as a potential replacement for Hardy?

Jason Pierre - Paul will be a free agent come 3/10, Gettleman was with the Giants when he was drafted, will be interesting to see if he pursues JPP as a potential replacement for Hardy.

Cam has "WE DAT" cleats?

Is it me or do those cleats say "WE DAT"?

There's no sense in worrying about anything else until the OL is fixed.

Yes Cam missed a few throws, the WR's dropped a few and the play calling was questionable, but there's no sense in worrying about any of that until the OL is fixed. With just a little more protection Cam would have time to set his feet, go through his reads and make better throws. A better OL would also mean a more effective running game and at heart we're a run-first team that thrives on play action. 

 

Fix the OL, then we'll see what else needs fixing - until then you can't even make an honest evaluation.
