  1. Sidewalks are actually not for cyclists. They are supposed to ride in the road and be treated as a vehicle if there is no bike lane. Problem is, many cyclists don’t follow the rules and many motorists don’t treat them as vehicles. A lot more common courtesy is needed on both sides.
  2. We need stars, not role players. So I guess it depends on the talent drop. If you think 11 is just as boom or bust as 16/18 I guess you take 2 swings instead of one. In general though, as was mentioned above, you need as high a pick as possible in the NBA draft. We just need the highest ceiling guy we can get.
  3. We’ve had players coaches and gms for most of our existence and it hasn’t exactly garnered a ton of loyalty.
  4. Seeing people in here taking shots at Greg is pretty pathetic. Dude said absolutely nothing wrong. Whether his number deserves to be retired or not, he’s the best TE we ever had by a long shot and has been nothing but an asset to the community off the field as well.
  5. He’s not entirely wrong. Why change what made us the best team in football? However, they should have had contingency plans and they should have had looks that they had been practicing all season and not shown in games yet. Good coaches can make adjustments when things aren’t working.
  6. If the Texans weren’t selling at his previous value, why in the world would they sell at his current value? Edit to add: Watson has also now lost all of his leverage and has to focus on rehabbing his image.
  7. Most of the best have been said. Here’s a few more for consideration: “Donkey Kong Suh” ”Hindsight is 50/50” ”Let the cat out of the hat” ”Not going to put them on a pinnacle” ”Hog mollies” ”You don’t trade a quarter for 2 dimes”
  8. Lol, how? He 100% just made excuses and tried to pull the whole “I could say it but I’m not saying it but this is what I could say if I were to make an excuse...but I’m not saying it...but maybe if you wanna say it...” bs. I’ve been extremely unimpressed with his professionalism. He doesn’t hold himself accountable and thinly veils it publicly.
  9. “Feedback from the Iowa staff was not positive” This is the most concerning part. It’s one thing to be immature off the field but still be coachable and a good teammate. It’s another thing when you are not well liked by the coaching staff.
  10. I see a lot of weird conclusions in here. The fact that Tackles with longer arms don’t always succeed means absolutely nothing. The fact that Joe Thomas had below average 33in arms doesn’t mean a lot. Unfortunately, Christiansen has more than just slightly below average arms, he is in the bottom of the bottom. That does not bode well. I obviously hope he succeeds, but I don’t have high hopes at LT. Guard may be better for him.
  11. I agree, draft grades don’t mean poo, so what’s the point of citing them. You know, it’s ok to acknowledge when they fuged something up, which they obviously did. They looked at it as a “calculated risk” and the risk did not pay off, so they had to trade down again. I understand their thinking, you look and go, “ok, we’re trading back 13 spots and we have x number of guys we like, what are the odds that 6 offensive linemen and 4 defensive backs are taken.” Pretty low right? Rookie mistake from a first year GM. Let’s call a spade a spade. I’m sure they like who they got, but they were also banking on somebody being there at 52 who wasn’t. They also could have traded back with Chicago in the first, picked up an extra first round pick and AT LEAST a 4th and 5th and gotten Caleb Farley (or maybe even Jaycee Horn still). They traded the wrong pick.
  12. I fugging told y’all. Outsmarted themselves with that first trade down in the second. That’s why this draft is a low grade for me.
  13. I don’t really buy that there wasn’t a player taken between our original 2nd round pick and the 52 pick that we were hoping to get at 52. I think the second trade back in the 2nd round was a reaction to the guys they wanted at that pick no longer being there. Based on that I would have to give a pretty low grade on how the draft was run. I think the best trade back spot was the first round where we could have, for example, traded back with the Bears and picked up an extra first round pick next year and gotten Caleb Farley.
  14. I really hope so. I was on board with picking up Darnold but would really love for that second we gave up to not turn out to be at the top of the round.
  15. At a certain point, quantity just works against you. There are only so many roster spots and only so many starters. A lot of these picks won’t be starters because of the numbers game, so is it really better to draft the depth instead of drafting the best talent and filling out depth with vets and UDFAs? Idk. I’m not inclined to care too much about 4th-7th round trade backs, I just hated the fug out of the second round trade back. The one round it seems like it would have made the most sense is the first, and we didn’t. Jaycee Horne better be THAT much better than Surtain and Farley.
