What's the quickest path to being contenders again?

Recommended Posts

None of us have a crystal ball and can tell the future. And there's a million different ways we can do this, all taking different amounts of time until we get back to being great. 

Do we take the best linebacker in the draft now because keuchly retired? Seems kind of quick to jump just because of emotions. But is it the right decision?

Do we take the best o lineman in the draft to help shore the line up?

Best reciever in the draft so we can work our way into an offensive powerhouse?

Do we draft a corner and pay Bradbury and try to keep our defensive identity?

Do we trade cam and say screw it and take a chance on Tua? 

Now let's think about this carefully. One of these paths will inevitably be the better and faster option getting back to being great. But which path is that?

Just for the sake of discussion though, what would you do?

Right. It's easy to say become a longterm contender. What's the first move to do that?

Trade down and trade players to stockpile draft picks. 
 

Rebuild both lines with those picks.

Suck next season (inevitable anyway) and grab the next long term QB.

Start winning again in 2021-2022

Is there anyone on our team that's worthy of another team trading for? Lol

Get rid of aging vets.  Build through the draft and stop signing high priced free agents.  That's where it starts.

Tepper is about to burn down the stadium to build the team up again. Literally, I bet that stadium is gone within 10 years

You're joking right? You wouldn't actually consider trading any one of those 3.

Trade up for a QB, trade Cam, build methodically through open salary while you have a QB on a rookie contract. There is definitely a blueprint for being competitive sooner than later.

If we are truly in rebuild then might as well trade CMC, as crazy as it sounds.  A RBs career is too short to sit on a rebuild

He literally said " sometimes you have to tear it all down to build it back up"
