I wasn't completely off


Looks like the football gods are punishing us for gluttony at the running back position all these years

 

Unless they are the Exercise Bike Gods then I don't see why we are being punished.  Very few times we have had everyone at full strength without an injury.

Has anyone noticed the past 2 weeks, we didn't implement the no huddle offense? The 2nd drive is around the time we should go to it. Meanwhile Bengals, that's all they did. I can't really remember about GB

 

We did .. they got bogged down by penalties.

So pretty much remain the exact same team we are now?  We need an upgrade at T.

 

Upgrading from Byron Bell won't be that hard.   We need to upgrade the entire line.  Bell is no better worst than the play at all the positions except center.  Look at how much Pittsburgh and Green Bays 2 teams we lost 2.  Both of whom have better records.

 

Young players rookie deals , with 5 year deals that are almost less than what Byron Bell is making this year.   You don't have to spend 7-10 million a year per position.  You just have to develop a philosophy and build your team accordingly.  When you get an exceptional key word here is "EXCEPTIONAL" player at a position you need you pay , then you pay top dollar and deal with it accordingly.  Trying to low ball your best players is not the answer.  Cam's gonna get 20 plus, luke gonna get 10.  There it's done.  Pay for your DL and then make everything else work.   Our best DL is probably costing us 1 mill per year (KK),  He is a second round pick in his second year.  Once we get the RB salaries under control we will be fine.

How are we going to address our DE, CB, and OT positions combined with resigning Luke, and dealing with CJ?  That's pretty much all I'm worried about.    We'll also need to find another complimentary receiver and some decent safeties.  We might draft another wr, but it's more likely that we take a chance on one later in the draft which is hardly comforting.   Like any team I don't really expect us to be able to fill all the holes on our roster, but most would be nice.

 

You are not going to have moderate to high paid players all over the field. We are going to have to 1.  Pick and choose what positions we are going to spend on. (probably Luke, DL, and Cam).  2. Pick up skills positions through the draft (WR, CB, RB) and 3.  Low priced veterans and developed draft picks  (OL, Secondary).

If he wins the South again....he gets a blank check.

 

I hope he realizes that no matter who signs him, he's not going to have all the weapons he going to want with the kind of payday it'll require to buy his services.

 

 

Peyton manning does.   He has the Thomas's , welker and a Ware, Von Miller plus a decent defense.  Still making 20 million a year. 

 

People need to stop blaming the QB's for getting paid.  The salary cap is a number a bunch of billionaires made up to keep salaries in check.  People always try to attach salary with desire to win and it's unfair and short sighted.   Even if Cam took below market value, the GM could F#$$ it up and sign the wrong "weapon".  Then Cam is making less than market value and the team still sucks.   He only gets paid what the market dictates.  Top tier QB's make 20+ million a year.   That's the market.
