  1. Also man, DPantherman was here forever and posted a ton and then vanished. Whatever happened to that dude?
  2. What a throwback. Wanted McD form the start! But I also wanted some dude named Winston Moss. And I don't remember him haha.
  3. There's so much that could be added too
  4. and will also probably claim that they were actually fine with taking Bryce, they were just misconstrued.
  5. Around this time last year, people were creaming, and I mean creaming over a stacked class with Van Dyke, Richardson, Young, Levis, & Stroud. Fast-forward, now here we are, they're all nitpicked to death and everyone hates all prospects. And many things evolve over the course of a season, some don't look as good as teased. Just check out 2023 mocks in the Nov 2021-May 2022 range. Van Dyke and Richardson were all the rage. Rewind another year it was Rattler, Howell, & Strong that were all going to be legit. Not to mention our very own Cade Mays being a popular top-15ish selection in many mocks on the OL. Maye & Caleb look fine, sure. But it is a waste of breath pining for them with an entire 1.5 years of life happening until that possibility is even there. Never fall, and I mean NEVER fall for next class syndrome.
  6. Honestly, if you want to help maximize our chances at the position, go the RGIII/Cousins route--take Young/Stroud and then a Ward/Tune/McKee later. Keep swinging, don't settle for what we have when what we have is honestly more uncertain than half of the prospects in the draft given how shut out he's been and will be a year removed from the field.
  7. yessir The perspective of wanting to just roll with Corral+a JAG scrub are no different than those wanting BPA+[insert their "sleeper" QB pick] in the draft. You're getting a 2nd-4th round QB prospect either way and neglecting the very thing that's preventing us from winning outside of a legit coach. There's no issue rooting or being hopeful for Corral, I do take issue with those making him out to be some type of plug-in starter next year and drop in some Brian Hoyer with him. He's nowhere close and may never be with now essentially a year removed and no good coaching to grow under while injured. He's basically a developmental 3rd string. Those wanting Corral+JAG scrub will be the same people whining about not selecting a Stroud or Young if they turn out to be something. In 2 years they're asking "where can we find the next Young? How do we keep missing out??", meanwhile, dissing every top prospect in that future draft, pining for their next can't miss mid/late rounder of Carson Strong/Ricky Stanzi significance.
  8. Corral seems like a guy who truly needs a vet, not just a mid-career average JAG to show him the ropes. He is also basically having a scratch year when this is at least the time to be acclimated into the NFL setting. Given the system he came from and likely where he's at developmentally, he needs someone in front of him to show him the ins and outs. Talking at least a Cousins, Carr type guy. Buuut this is why our situation just isn't ideal for him. I doubt having him go against another Baker type pickup in camp will help him out. Combine our likelihood of getting a QB R1, it's just not something to really get too excited about from my perspective.
  9. I like him, but I'm not throwing my unyielding support behind him being owed a starting chance. I'm most likely unnecessarily lumping you in the the Rippdingle guy and a few others. They're giving the idea of generally supporting Corral and hoping for the best with him a bad look.
  10. If anything the offseason could produce more competition for suitors, especially looking at the potential DE market. The buyers pool right now is way more limited as teams are set from a cap standpoint. Not to mention the only buyers at this point in the season are win-now contenders. Offseason, the pool widens while they're working new contracts, clearing space.
  11. Seeing Corral cheerleaders...
  12. Taylor, Corbett, Bozeman continue solid play midst a Helen Hunt style Twister of sh*t
  13. To answer the question, about the same but with less cocaine in the building.
  14. Let's be real, the brother is knee deep in snow and has some high shelf on hand anytime. If I was Bubba Ventrone, I'd be starting my feelers.
  15. Similar. Love their interior OL, Pittman, Pierce, Leonard and Paye. It’s pretty close, similar boats.
  16. Buckner, Gilmore, Stewart and Moore are basically given cuts with a ton of space clearing and minimal dead cap. In large part because their bases aren’t renegotiated contracts with converted base to bonuses like Sal does. They can easily get a lot of space and not lose their core talent.
  17. That checks out a lot more than those building unnecessary enthusiasm for an injured 3rd round pick.
  18. Burns' situation is the one to more closely monitor and we haven't necessarily shut the door on any front yet. If a long term deal isn't made, he could very well be dealt in the offseason. Who knows, maybe he gets lucky on a sack streak and his value goes up in a more competitive market after this season. Just don't "Peppers" the situation.
  19. Well he still got injured so there's year 1.
  20. Not a small channel, they dive into everything we all know, for a much greater audience to see. Oh lawdy.
  21. @*FreeFua* Hall is interesting that's for sure. https://www.sltrib.com/sports/byu-cougars/2022/10/07/what-nfl-scouts-analysts-have/ But what you gamble with is the size, injury, and age concerns all wrapped in one package of a very accurate, agile, and solid decision-making kid.
  22. I think the mistake many are making is this assumption that Anderson is some far and away #1. Jalen Carter & Myles Murphy could very well be above him in many team's eyes, just like Walker was last year. Heck, Nolan Smith is the same size and a better run-defender. And then Tyree Wilson's size and abilities are tantalizing. The top of this DL class is not set by any means, especially with how inconsistent Anderson has been. He is simply not a #1 Pick as things stand. And you just never can put your eyes on a single QB prospect this early before their draft. There is so much that can happen between now and then. We made that mistake with Luck as a fanbase. At least then, we got lucky with Cam, but this time Caleb Williams is the other prominent name, who honestly has similar frame/size concerns as Bryce for those nervous on that front. Just think this whole Maye idea flirting in the back of minds needs to fizzle and it begins with this test run idea for Corral with a new coach. You get the coach, figure out what he wants, get that QB room together. And a lot of the time, it usually doesn't involve mid-round picks from a previous regime. And it doesn't involve wishing for the next draft. Get the best QBs you can find in the position you're in whether be trade market, FA or draft. In our instance, we've soured on the first two fronts, so it's top of draft time. Just see no way it's otherwise for a new coach. If we miss out on a QB, and are sitting here next year with a few rookies looking great and we're out of reach for that 1 guy we wanted, then well, continue the purgatory. I prefer swinging for the fences. Never settle.
  23. Jalen Carter, Myles Murphy, & Tyree Wilson are the more sure thing stud linemen that would be in this type of consideration but still wouldn't be preferable.
  24. Interestingly in a tangental tree to Steichen who followed the same LAC to PHI path as Reich. Still want Steichen as HC more than anything and would trust with his staff build. Especially how Herbert looks with him gone and Hurts looks with him in PHI. He's got something going on. He's got his pulse on the modern ballgame.
