In Topic: Deandre Presley at Safety?

23 October 2014 - 06:15 AM

he was a finalist for the Payton award. he didn't win it. but yes, he is a hell of an athlete, just not the most accurate passer as a QB. his first game as a CB he had a forced fumble

Ah, so you are right. My mistake. One of 3 finalists isn't too shabby though.

The problem is, our FO seems to be setting a precedent for ignoring positions of need and instead, stubbornly trying to create the solution from within when it's not there.

He's not ignoring needs - the team can only afford to meet the most demanding of needs because of the cap situation. Where is he supposed to magically find 2 offensive tackles, FOUR dbacks, etc?

This has probably been said already, but Pressley played corner (well) at App. after he was replaced as a QB. And he also won the Walter Payton award as a QB the year before he was replaced.. He's a pretty awesome athlete.


In Topic: Was Gettleman feeling himself too much after last year?

Karma for thinking he can run guys out town, guys that's been here over 10+ years with the I dont need you, we can replace you mentality?

This team was EXTREMELY lucky to have been as successful as they were last year - and a lot of those wins were close, meaning we were always likely to regress back to the mean sooner rather than later. What Gettleman did with that atrocious salary cap last year and a bunch of bargain bin free agents in the secondary was nothing short of amazing. It was the perfect storm of cheap & productive talent, a schedule that broke our way and luck.

 

This isn't anyone's fault except Jerry Richardson for stubbornly leaving Hurney in place long enough for him to completely sabotage this team's future with poor constructed contracts. You don't think Gettleman would like a little cash to spend on the DBs and Oline? Don't forget he tried to sign away Cincinnati's RT but didn't have the capital. Last year was by far our best chance for a title. It's going to be much more difficult from here on out - even after we clear the cap situation up.


In Topic: Frank Alexander....

Saw him last night applying some pressure but not really getting off his blocks.

"DON'T RESIGN HARDY, FRANK IS THE SAME!"

Hardy's awesome - but he definitely benefits from having CJ over there. CJ is a pretty amazing all-around DE, if you look at the advanced stats from PFF, etc. I'm not sure how'd Hardy would be as a one-man show. Ray Edwards-esque, maybe? He's gonna demand a ton, and I don't think he's going to live up to it. Gettleman undoubtedly knows this but he may have to pay him anyway.
