    Get the unstoppable TE now. If Sam sucks next year because our multiple second round LTs suck, so be it. It’s Sam Darnold. Besides, it’s easier for Pitts to have an immediate impact than it is for a rookie LT. Besides, Darnold moves in the pocket better than Teddy.

    This is basically how Ryan Grigson ran the Colts.

    It's a huge reason why Grigson got fired and why Andrew Luck is now retired.

    It was a joke of course.  I want LT in first.

    I gotcha.

    He won't be at 8 anyway .. Cinci has Tee Higgins, they're good at WR/TE .. Sewell is a Bengal

    Is this part of the same scenario where the Jets don't take Zach Wilson?

    Yeah, you’re right, we cant draft any more OL in round 2.  Brilliant 

    If we have an opportunity to get a premier left tackle that'll protect our quarterback for the next ten years, there's no way in hell we should pass on him.

    I mean we could find one second round right?  Not saying it’s going to happen but if we want Pitts why not wait to second?

    Round 2 man

    Like we did two years ago?

    Every time we have an opportunity to possibly get a franchise left tackle, we find some excuse not to take them.

    This is the year to break that trend.

    If that scenario plays out, we likely pass on one of the top two OT's and one of the top 4 QB's. I will be pretty pissed about that. 

    I definitely won't be upset adding Pitts as a talented guy, but I don't think he helps us in the way we need help in the short term.

    I could live with Pitts, but dammit I want a ten year left tackle.

    I remember people constantly talking about how young Funchess was too. At the end of the day, either you can play or you can't. I'm honestly not hanging my hat on Darnold's age. My hope with Darnold is basically Adam Gase simply being THAT atrocious.

    Said it elsewhere: Darnold's age isn't what gets me so much as it is just how little experience he has playing quarterback.

    You can coach him up like a rookie without having to worry about helping him adjust to the speed of the NFL.

  7. One thing I remember about Moore's first season is the insane amount of times he took handoffs on gadget plays rather than catching passes. That struck me as a concern.

    Wasn't as big a deal in his second season, though there were a lot of questions about his chemistry with Bridgewater.

    At this point, I still feel pretty positive about Moore, but there are some questions in the back of my head.

    I wouldn't necessarily argue against your point, however you are also the guy that refused to give Hurney credit for the players he drafted that Gettleman took advantage of.

    You gotta be consistent on that. As you often said in those discussions, the wins and losses are what matters. Tepper has presided over one of the worst three years spans in franchise history(sadly, there are more to choose from than you would think).

    Keeping Marty in place was absolutely Tepper's fault. He has to own that, and from things he's said since the firing I think he knows it.

    What happens from here forward is what's most important now, though. And one of the biggest criteria to me is his willingness to butt out and let the football people he hired do their jobs.

    Based on Person's story about the Darnold process, it sounds like he's doing that.
