In Topic: And to those thinking Boykin & others are just camp bodies

Yesterday, 05:42 PM

After having guys like McNutt, King, Legedu, and Underwood doing next to nothing here, I'm taking all this with a grain of salt.

Even the guy who came in with a decent resume the year before in Cotchery ended up being unreliable too often.

I'm ready to see what we can come away with in the draft.

In Topic: Why drafting a RB or defense won't solve our issues.

Yesterday, 12:33 PM

Purely drafting for need is obviously not the solution. OP is attempting to make some kind of point, but not doing well at all.

 

We've poured a lot of resources into our defense, and there isn't anything wrong with that. But people seem to have a short memory about how bad that defense was at one point last year. 6 blowout losses in 10 games. That's pretty fugging bad. There really is no way around that.

 

DE is a need with the loss of Hardy, and our secondary is still a work in progress. Obviously we still need to keep upgrading our D.

 

But last season made it pretty clear that we definitely need more offensive firepower if we want to compete with the best of the NFC, and not just squeak by flawed teams. If we have the opportunity to grab another legit WR in this years draft, Gettleman should and will make the pick.


In Topic: Alan Ball was offered more money by Chicago

Yesterday, 12:01 PM

Anyone getting upset about this is obviously an idiot, but I've only seen maybe a few people all that bothered about it.

 

It's not like this guy was a top tier FA. Gettleman made an offer which he felt was reasonable, the player chose another team.


In Topic: Hot take on Cam Newton

Yesterday, 06:00 AM

I know he's just a kid, but that running back comment really sticks out.

 

Sounds like he's just repeating what he's heard from his troglodyte father.

Not really surprising. Goodell looking out for one of his buddies, Arthur Blank.
