#2989954 Dave Gettleman?

The fact of the matter is, as bad as our options at LT appeared, as opposed to taking a flier on a guy that some scouts had graded as a second or third round pick, we drafted an RB who probably would have been a UDFA himself when we already had strength at the position (and let's not argue about the status of the RB corps today because hindsight is always 20/20).

No one knows how a player will work out when it comes time, but a fool could really see that Bell and Chandler weren't the answer to protect Cam's blind side.  As such, Hurst was the more logical choice because if he pans out you gain a lot and don't really lose much. What's laughable is that now Hurst is starting and the FO didn't even value Gaffney enough to protect him from the likes of Belichick.


You realize that at least 80%+ (90%+ some years) of 6th rounders are complete busts meaning they get cut before their rookie contract is even up. The ones that do work out are usually backups or STers. Getting a starter in the 6th or later is rare and even then they usually aren't ready to start right away. There are plenty of years where there's not a single immediate starter in the entire 6th round out of ~40 picks. Seriously you guys look pretty foolish complaining that we didn't land a day 1 starter in the 6th round, at a specific and premium position no less.

Never tried it but I'll give it a shot.

His draft record so far has been phenomenal. 6 starters and one nickel back out of 11 draft picks.


Looks like he's going to be 5 for 5 on all his picks in the first 3 rounds. Trai Turner has graded out as our best OLineman so far this season. Ealy has been our 2nd best DLineman, behind Short, his other 2nd rounder. Star was in the running for DROY for most of his rookie year and now Benjamin is in the running for OROY.


I'm not sure people realize just how insanely good this is compared to the league average. The jury is still out on Boston and yes, he whiffed on a few late round picks (Kugbila, Barner, Gaffney). It happens. Even so his success over the last 2 years in the draft is easily top 10 if not top 5 in the league.


The most common gripes I've seen are that we didn't get a day 1 starter franchise left tackle in the 6th round or as an UDFA, which is laughable. Or that we didn't bring in an OT in free agency, even though the biggest contract offer he made was to one of the top free agent OTs (he just chose to sign elsewhere). Or keeping Hardy on the team (one of the few elite players on the roster and in case you haven't been paying attention someone we REALLY need) because of things that happened after he was tagged that nobody in the world could foresee.

Barry Sanders in his prime would only manage 3YPC behind this OLine. I can't believe some people would rather have this dude than Gettleman.

#2987122 Are we going to completely ignore that Kuechly hasn't been playing well?

I remember seeing an interview with keek and he said he got cable this off season. Just sayin...


Probably stumbled across that Breaking Bad marathon.

4 + 7 = 11


6 + 5 = 11




#2987093 The whole NFC South is absolutely horrible.

This wins for the day

I wouldn't mind picking up Torrey Smith next offseason as he's scheduled to be a free agent (along with a new OC and a couple new OTs). He looked really good last season, top end #2 / borderline #1 receiver. He should be pretty cheap too if they continue to focus so much on Smitty and give him practically no targets.

Sean Peyton, welp we're down 2 scores late in the 4th quarter NO WAY THEY SEE THIS FAKE PUNT COMING

I'm not sure what I'd rather see - a Saints loss or Cowboys totally collapse and blow a 28 point lead. Is there any way both of those things happen?

Sorry about posting the incorrect score. In the 10 seconds it took me to screen cap it and post to imgur the Vikings scored again.
