  1. I feel we lost the CMC trade more than anything. Would love to have him ready to go while we groom our rookie QB.
  2. He is a decent backup for early downs. That’s it. Carolina still needs 3rd down help and depth. Eagles didn’t love Sanders in that role. He can do it but that’s all we got. Rookie QB needs someone reliable
  3. healthy Nuke is top 10, arguably top 5. but he is a rental for a team trying to win a ring. He ain’t coming here for a check.
  4. because you wouldn't go into week 1 with both your #1 and #2 QBs never having logged an actual NFL snap?
  5. fair shot to do what? Be the 3rd QB? I mean, yeah.
  6. I do think the diva WR era is a recognizable era/window in the NFL. I could see it returning though. Especially as the league continues to become a passing league, social media, personal brand building etc.
  7. Trevor also had a talent issue his rookie year and a coaching issue. So his big jump wasn’t just him improving. It was some of it. He would have looked better as a rookie if in a place to have success. Bryce likely is put in a better spot year 1.
  8. Chris Simms had Zach Wilson ahead of Trevor Lawrence. Mond ahead of Fields. Simms has always embraced throwing rankings out meant to generate clicks
  9. OP wisely left off who is coaching that team. That's where the real drama is lol.
  10. Trai Turner is getting in at G for me. I'm going Lathon at OLB over Spoon I'd also put Beason over Morgan. But I get it either way that goes. I can't put Horn on that list either. He hasn't even logged a full season worth of games yet. Godfrey shouldn't be the #2 all time Safety. We ain't got much there but I just couldn't do that.
  11. It’s all a play in words. Rated higher at the time of draft. He could have said he had Baker rated higher than Tom Brady.
  12. He is just doing what the 49ers just did with the recent talk about Darnold and they both are just doing what Carolina did when they signed Sam and then Baker. AKA blowing smoke up their fanbase’s rear end. We laugh at them but we were literally just spit the same thing.
  13. probably. reading a defense, field and being able to quickly get to a 2nd read in the small ball world of today's NFL? Yeah, Sam Darnold is an implosion waiting to happen. Would he look good in a veteran combine? Yep. He has tools. Size. All that stuff.
  14. 49ers O is all about seeing the field with quick and good decision making. That's not a place for Sam to thrive Best place for Sam Darnold would be a cloud of dust offense that hands the ball off and ask the QB to occasionally gamble deep downfield off the play action IMO. Basically an era gone by.
  15. another day, and another story repeating the classic Sam Darnold nonsense. The problem with Sam Darnold is between the ears. And no HC is going to change his DNA.
  16. A more modern stadium look and feel has never made me want to attend or not attend a game. Some of the best places to go watch a game are pieces of poo in reality. Something that spans over all sports. if someone didn’t go to a game last year….it wasn’t because of the stadium. It’s was the Panthers team being a joke and the ticket being too expensive to justify watching them. maybe I can get some of the absurdity for a city that wants to host things bigger than their NFL teams games but I don’t see us in the mix. and Teppers renovation is on the very high side based on the numbers.
  17. Tepper is worth close to 20 billion. Tax payers shouldn’t be paying to update his stadium….for his NFL franchise, whose valuation will do nothing but climb.
  18. But it doesn’t work that way. Hence my Gamecock reference. No team in the Carolina’s has a fanbase more passionate and great during the the down times than they have proven to be. Move the Panthers there and it isn’t going to automatically translate over to a NFL team. Generations upon generations made it what it was. Gen X still grew up fans of other NFL teams. There just hasn’t been the time needed to develop enough passionate fans. It’s time not location needed IMO.
  19. Referencing a college team is just getting into a different animal entirely. You could then argue to move them to Columbia, SC because even if the Gamecocks lost every game the fans in Columbia would still show up and be fired up at kickoff like they are competing for a Natty….. college football in the south is just nuts. No NFL expansion team fanbase can compete with that no matter the city
  20. you made the mistake of posting thoughts in the "Sam Darnold is going to turn it around and be our franchise QB" window of the offseason. I mean, this is the window where people would be willing to convince themselves that Matt Rhule taking a long snapper might actually be a genius move. You have to tread carefully.
  21. Dude has played in the NFL for 2 seasons. He doesn't have 4.3 NFL speed. He is a possession type. You don't judge a guys speed based on what his college team says at a pro day. and 40 times are overrated often to begin with. It measures how efficient and well someone can pull off a 40. Which isn't really a great measure of football speed. No one has knocked TMJ. He isn't a NFL vertical. That's all that was said. Yeah, everyone can run a vertical route. DJ Moore could too. He wasn't a vertical threat WR either. Mushin went bonkers one year and still holds the longest TD pass probably in Super Bowl history. He was still a possession WR.
  22. All subjective. I view it as a talent freakshow. Take them out of football and throw them somewhere else. Who is going to stand out as a freak athlete and not just someone that plays one position in football well. so I probably would put the Hardys and Edwards in a pure talent list ahead of significantly better football players. or a Micheal Bates. He was bringing a talent that was almost unmatched. Didn’t make him a better WR than guys without Olympic Bronze medal speed
  23. If memory serves he came out of retirement to play a season here. We didn’t have the real Reggie.
  24. TMJ ain’t got 4.3 speed. LSU might say so. When LSU wasn’t on the timer he logged 4.5 at the college combine. Which matches more his game day appearance. he is a possession WR
