  1. Thank you. What if Rhule gets us into the playoffs? I'm not too optimistic because our schedule is gonna be brutal. AFC north and NFC west opponents is doing us no favors. That said I also realize if we fire the coach it will result in a blow up and rebuild with another two to three seasons of SUCK.
  2. He never reached his potential but is a solid player. Sign him up. That spot across from Burns is open as far as I can tell. I like Barno but he should play more of pass rush specialist.
  3. Stopping the run. Our pass rush has been strong but setting the edge and stuffing the middle has been a weakness. I think it will continue to be. I blame part of that on personnel and the other half on play calling. On offense our biggest weakness was the oline changing lineups every other week and a bust QB. Our new weakness will be inexperience playing together. Hopefully a lineup at oline will gel together in camp and continue to improve through the season. That and Matty Golden running away with the gig and excelling.
  4. If you count Darnold and Henderson as part of this haul you have to drop a letter grade. But I would start with a A-. Compare our draft to division rivals TB, ATL and NIO. We got better IMO none of our rivals had as solid of drafts. Ikem light years better than Penning. Atl added a linebacker I liked but we got better value with our linebacker pick. Tampa got a bunch of who? picks. We did well. If Corral provides a spark next yrar, we did great.
  5. Brilliant move. Corral has some overblown "character issues" and his size is not ideal but his ceiling is high. I'm just glad we didn't pass on Ikem for Kenny Pickett.
  6. I don't think Fitterer is gonna sit on his hands and do nothing. If a guy we really like is there at a spot attainable then... Whether that is a QB or another position I don't know.
  7. His little brothers are 5 and 7. Almost as tall as mom.
  8. I think the board landed in such a way that we passed on trading down more so than folks didn't want to play ball.
  9. Cross, Neal and Ikem will forever be linked. Did we get the best guy? I personally love the pick Ikem was my fave. Saints taking Willis? Maybe.
  10. Yes. We did not decide to ruin another QB.
  11. Sauce? Kayvon? Ikem, Neal or Cross? Jets and Giants will leave someone there for us to either take or dangle for trade bait.
  12. Do'$ Pickett look like a bro tool or am I just hating? Fully prepared for him to be the pick but...
  13. I could see it playing out like this. I hope it's less of an option if Cross is still on the board. But if Cross and Ikem are off and it's only Neal there maybe explore a trade down. Trade with Philly. 15 and 19 for our 6 pick. Then a combo of Penning and Howell. Or a double down on oline. Penning and Zion. That second option is only cause Zion is my guard crush of the year. Him at LG or as a eventual center if Bozeman moves on would finally get some youth at oline.
  14. Johnson, Burns, Brown and a solid rotation could be a elite dline. Still need a LT and QB more.
  15. A receiver is a surprise pick. After the big contracts given to WR's this year loading up on WR makes more sense. I have not given up on TMJr but Wilson is special. Also if we wait till next year to get our franchise QB he will come in to a stacked receiver room.
  16. I'm with ya. My personal preference is that we trade out of the top 10 and gain a second or more to add more lottery balls into the fray. I'm just not a fan of the reactionary overdraft at QB based on "positional value" and need based picks. I actually would like to trade with KC or DET for they later picks. The bottom of the first would be prime spots for oline flyers like Bernard Raimann or Tyler Smith for our new coach to mold. Or guys that had stellar combines that increased their stock. It takes the entire convo we having out of the equation. A trade with KC that results in ex. Sam Howell and Tyler Smith or a trade with DET that results in Bernard and a top defensive player that slipped.
  17. Positional value is overrated but very real like the Lakers. Being in the top ten adds this stigma. If we were picking between 11 and say 16 all bets are off. At that point guards, tight ends and safeties magically become valid picks. If we take a QB (pickett or willis) in part because of inflated value based on position and draft slot it's a gamble. Journeyman and backup qb's are available much later in the draft. That could result in wasted positional value. Give me a serviceable to good offensive lineman that misses at left but excels at another position as a worst case over a serviceable QB that can only contribute at qb.
  18. This guy gives a refreshing take compared to the talking heads Kiper and Todd. It's always at 6 the panthers take Pickett cause they really need a QB. Then they will nonchalantly say "he's not worth a top ten pick" or the value is inflated because of past failures trying to address the position. Fug. It all sounds like they are saying "panthers suck" they will continue to suck cause Pickett is slightly above average but yeah let's talk about this other team for 8 minutes.
  19. I'd wait till next year. Then I'd be interested in Grayson McCall, Coastal Carolina. Accuracy and a live arm is his selling points. Jake Haener, Fresno St. Elite arm strength. Wait till next year McCall, Jake and Hooker will be in the discussion along with Stroud and Brice as a defining QB class. 2022 class may have one guy.
  20. If your goal is to trade down inflating QB stock is a smokescreen. I do think the brass has done their homework and like a QB or two but I don't see why they would tip their hand.
  21. Nope on Kyler, Lamar or Carr. We need that 4-5 year window of cap flexibility that a rookie brings. Lamar and Murray want to get paid $$$$. Jimmy GQ and Baker are decent plan B's but I think we have seen their ceiling and I'm not impressed. This year I would bring in Fitzmagic in as a mentor then go with a value pick at QB late round. A Bailey Zappe or EJ Perry. The next year go full press on the QB class.
  22. Ikem the dream. I'm happy with either cross or Neal though.
