lots of awful bloomberg poo surfaced on twitter and it forced him to deal with it during the debate. for years bloomberg relied on buying off NY media to suppress the kinds of valid attacks. can't buy off everyone on twitter though. just gotta cry about it instead.
Because we suck.
I think that's the thing some of us aren't fully realizing. This team SUCKS. Since our 6-2 start in 2018 (Nov 4.), we are 6-18. The last 2 seasons we have ended on long as hell losing streaks. And what's happened since? We've lost even more talent.
The defensive line is in shambles. Poe is all but gone. Even if we re-sign Addison, which we shouldn't, he'll be 33 years old at the start of the season. McCoy ain't coming back. Irvin ain't coming back. Bradberry probably isn't coming back. Same with Boston. I mean who is our best defensive player right now? Shaq Thompson? Short is coming off a season ending injury, Reid is too inconsistent, and Burns has to not get nicked up. This defense will be terrible.
The offense is easier to shore up, but it's still not good. Samuel is a solid role player but we can't count on him as the #2. Offensive line is bad.
I don't think trading Newton has as much to do with Cam as it does the state of this team. Newton is on his last year. Even if we assume Cam is gonna be healthy for 16 games, then what? MAYBE we make the playoffs, but this team almost certainly wouldn't be good enough to win a Super Bowl. And that is the end goal, right?
I love Cam and I don't want to lose him, but his window with this team has closed. We're best off tanking for Trevor Lawrence, which is absolutely what we are doing, then delaying the inevitable.
