  1. Always a good day when you switch out a player who isn't top-50 at his position with one that's at least in the top 25 or so
  2. Correct as of now. Darnold is not a top 50 QB in the NFL, he couldn't lead the 85 Bears to the playoffs. Sub in a QB who is merely the 25th best in the league, and it's suddenly very different
  3. 90% of that article is spin artist BS from Watson's camp. He wanted max dollars plain and simple. He would have come here if Tepper had been foolish enough to bite
  4. I want. He's on a prove-it deal, and at his peak had a better season than Darnold could ever dream of. And if it doesn't work out, almost nothing lost.
  5. So has Albright donated that $10,000 yet?
  6. This ended very well for us. Our rivals bruised their cap situations and roster futures, and alienated their current QBs, without getting anything out of it.
  7. Massive overpay. Whoever backed down, whether it was Tepper or Fitt, made the right decision. I feel better about ownership than I did all of last week. Browns just crippled their franchise. We need to get on Baker
  8. After seeing that deal, thank god he isn't coming here. That number is going to ruin their franchise
  9. good riddance. Enjoy rotting in Atlanta, and better bring your rehab clinician with you because those knees won't last
  10. Yeah this talk of needing to attach picks for him, let alone a 1st rounder, is nonsense. At the end of the day he's still a top 16 starting QB in this league right now, and he only has two years left on his deal, not 5 or 6. Some team will move picks for him
  11. A sixth or seventh rounder? We should make that deal then
  12. I think they're still just a little bit short, otherwise we'd have already been officially eliminated, instead as last resort in case both Falcons and Saints can't make it work
  13. In retrospect it was obvious he wasn't coming here, or at least had no intention of doing so, after he didn't pull the trigger for us after the team met with him. The rebuttal to that line of thinking was "well he didn't pull the trigger for New Orleans or Atlanta either!" but those two teams actually have to do work just to open up the books, whereas we've had enough cap space since day 1. Not comparable. So best case is Ryan remains untradable, and Loomis can't squeeze the last 10 million in room, and we get Watson, who doesn't want to be here, by default. He doesn't play most of this year because of suspension, and then after three seasons he's a free agent again who very well still might not want to be here and could leave us. So how is that worth continuing this pursuit?
  14. At absolute best, we're a distant third who is only the fallback option if for whatever reasons the cap situations in New Orleans and Atlanta prove to be intractable.
  15. This is a great summary, kudos. Like other egotistical dipshits in his field of finance, he really thought he could stroll into the NFL and disrupt decades of networks, hierarchy and precedent and outsmart the rest of the league. And of course it went down as a massive failure because running the rent-seeking business model of Appaloosa Management doesn't actually prepare you for any real skills building something
  16. Yeah they're a ticking time bomb now. One or two key injuries over the next season or two and they'll be in the basement too.
  17. He needs to fire himself from all football decisions completely and just stick to his day job of shilling for Private Equity parasite capitalism on CNBC
  18. Those ACLs aren't going to last. This stings now for some who saw this as an instant win solution, but we really will be better off ultimately
  19. He should fire himself from football operations and go back to shilling on CNBC for private equity parasites
  20. I know but you think with a 14 month head start we'd at least finish in the top 2. This franchise is such an irrelevant after-thought in the NFL hierarchy it's sometimes unbelievable...until moments like this
  21. We're not even in the two horse race, lmao
  22. Baker would at worst be an average NFC quarterback. With Watson suspended for most of next season most likely, there's only two true elite QBs in the whole conference, Brady and Rodgers. In fact, if we signed Baker and he reverted to his pre-injury form, the only teams with for sure better QBs would be: Tampa Green Bay Dallas Arizona LA Minnesota That's how weak the NFC is at the position. Only 6 out of 15 other teams with for-sure better QBs. If you believe we'll have something bordering on a great defense, and that we can overcome Rhule, no reason we wouldn't be competing for a playoff spot with Baker
  23. Tepper can add the NFC South Watson Recruitment 3rd place bronze medal right next to the brass balls on his desk
  24. There is no comparison. At their peaks, Baker blows Sam out of the water, period. Talking about a league average starter or at least top 20 versus a scrub who is worst than half the backup QBs in the league. Baker on a reasonable deal is good value while you pick his replacement in the draft
