I've thought about this as well. Honestly, we might as well tag him again because 13 million isn't so bad when you look at CJs contract and we could draft a DE to bring along in the event Hardy is gone...BPA
He is elite, no doubt. The best RE in the league and that's no bs. People can say what they want about his sack totals but that paints a small picture. And those huge games were the ones that we locked-up the division, so it was quite important in the grand-scheme of the season.
Anyone that says he's overrated are a bunch of haters, cut-and-dry.
You would not be able to tag him a second time for 13m. If you tag a player for a second time, the amount us increased by 20%. So, the second tag would cost you almost 16m.
Definitely a talented Tackle. There is no denying that, but I would be surprised to see a team spend a 1st round draft choice on him with these charges brought against him. Could be a steal in the second, maybe even the third round depending on how his case develops after the April 8th arraignment..
Worst of 93 days or $500 fine. There is NO way thus guy slips all the the way to 28.
Second, it is a couple of OSU fans claiming this. Like they have no bias.
If he slipped to 28, it would take Gett a total of 4 sec to turn in our card with his name.
I've mentioned value through several threads now. The value Gettlemen places on defensive players decreases from the defensive line back. The offense needs to be nothing more than efficient with our philosophy so a Gettlemen sees no reason to spend money on skill position players who are more than role players.
Based on absolutely nothing more than your opinion.
1. The Smith release was dumb and if you think it wasn't you don't understand the cap.
2. Hardy needs be signed to a reasonable long term deal or it was a mistake to franchise him(long time for this one to play out so no need to rush to judgement)
3. I must have missed it but I haven't seen posters complaining about Mitchell or Captain not being re-signed for the deals they got elsewhere so why do people keep saying that?
4.On the face of it signing Harper to the deal he got is dumb, he's tying up valuable cap space and got guaranteed money that limits are flexibility if we decide we don't need him come final cuts.
5.If you're overly stressed right now then find other ways to kill time than refreshing the huddle every five minutes.
The Smitty release was NOT about money.....how many times does that have to be said.
gettlemans not a fan gm he's a financial gm so he's not focused on wins and superbowls. he's focused on tv and press box sales to other companies. If we get wins out of it great if not no problem as long as the money's coming in. thats just the way its gonna be
Clearly we would like a more desirable situation with the salary cap, but it can still be managed.
I'm not one of these people asking for Gettleman to be fired, or on the hot seat, or any of that absurd nonsense. I just don't like the idea that we should continue on in the habit of writing everything that doesn't go our way off with an angry "HURNEY!!!!" in red ink. By the time the season starts the guy will have already been gone almost two full years. I don't think Gettleman is the type of individual to operate with that type of mentality either.
It is more like saying we are not sure what his plan is and will wait to see how the whole offseason unfolds before making any real judgements.
If he adds nothing in FA at WR and then does the same in the draft, I will be the first one lined up to kick him in the nuts.
