  1. We wish we had Byron Bell. That's how far we've gone down the tubes.
  2. PJ isn't the answer, never was. Warm body, that's all. Darnold, unless something just monumental and unexpected happens, isn't the answer either. He could maybe be a serviceable back-up next year since we're on the hook for him. At the end of that the math might work right and we get a comp pick for him if someone else snags him. We're going to either have to draft a QB and hope for the best, or, better, draft o-line early and often and try to find a steady journeyman QB to see us through. Really, the o-line is key here. Guys like Trent Dilfer have a Super Bowl ring because they have a good defense and an o-line that gave them a chance to perform.
  3. Gotta quit eating 'shrooms you find in your yard man.
  4. Whew. I just never know what to believe when Rhule talks. He's just about lost me. If we drop this one, I don't think I can believe in his abilities anymore.
  5. Wow, that's great! Went and looked up her art, she's got great talent and a really funky style! And good job Mom!
  6. And I think the new boss there may be the same as the old boss there. I've said it before, Fitterer looks busy but his hit rate is pretty low at this point and really bad when it comes to offensive linemen.
  7. I think it is a systemic problem and probably starts in our scouting/evaluation department. Wonder how much turnover we've had there or if it has remained stagnant for the last decade. We do seem to make the same O-line mistakes again and again.
  8. Actually, I might have endorsed him a bit more. I thought he was the best choice of all the guys available after Trevor Lawrence. That being said, behind our offensive line he'd be dead by now. Bad organizations often kill top level QB draftees because they have not been able to build a decent offensive line. Brady, both Mannings, Roethlisberger, Rodgers have all been able to develop behind a decent to good offensive line. Had any of them been behind the kinds of lines built by teams like the Jags, Lions or Browns (until recent years for the Browns) they'd have all been written off as busts. Sadly, I'm coming to the realization that we're that kind of team. And it's not just bad coaching, but also bad management. Not only can we not pick good linemen, but we can't even seem to evaluate them, either as they come out of college (scouts) or from a medical standpoint (trainers, team docs). Darnold is getting killed out there and he's acting like it. Lawrence, Jones, any of them would be doing the same. Not sure even Brady or Rodgers could perform under these circumstances. Jones, in the end, had the best chance to succeed imho before the draft because of his experience, leadership and ability to deliver the ball around the field. He also had that calm, cool it factor. He will succeed the best and first of this year's first rounder QBs because, more than anything else, he has a decent line in front of him. He'll have enough time to not just make some plays but to survive long enough to learn. Here, we won't have a QB look like they're worth a damn until we put together a line that could at least play in Div. III football.
  9. Rhule says all kinds of stuff to make sure the other team doesn't know what we're doing. Sadly, we also don't seem to know what we're doing. So that's a wash I guess, right?
  10. Panthers 24 Giants 17 It won't be pretty, but the Giants are already giving up on the season and perhaps their coach. Still hoping to see Darnold play like the guy he was at the end of the fourth quarter last week. It's a fleeting hope, but it's all I've got right now.
  11. With the Jets, Jags and Lions, there's a very good chance that they don't!
  12. The guy is literally at the age when good DBs are wearing out and retiring. And it's been discussed that he may hang it up after this year. We bought a steak on its expiration date and hoping it'll still be good for next weekend.
  13. We all seem to hate that other Dallas offensive lineman we picked up this year, right? Maybe we shouldn't be so bothered by missing out on one they waived.
  14. We grab cast offs from the Lions and Jets, Jags and Patriots --- four teams with four wins amongst them. Sheesh Fit, even Gettleman's dumpster diving was more productive.
