  1. Whatcha think about getting Deshaun AND JJ at the same time?
  2. As I mentioned over in that other QB draft-related thread... more than half of the current roster of starting quarterbacks this season have been picked higher than #10 on the draft list, (the majority going in the #24-53 range). Five were #1 picks, 14 were picked 8th or earlier. Just trying to suggest that picking the right draft person has proven to be more the trend moreso than picking the right draft number.
  3. Well, sure. Merely pointing out that more than half of the current roster of starting quarterbacks this season have been picked higher than #10 on the draft list, (the majority going in the #24-53 range). Five were #1 picks, 14 were picked 8th or earlier. Just trying to suggest that picking the right draft person has proven to be more the trend moreso than picking the right draft number.
  4. Aaron Rodgers was picked 24th in the draft. Russell Wilson was picked 75th. Tom Brady was the #199 pick While it can happen, there is proof that a franchise QB doesn't always need to come from an early draft selection.
  5. And because wikipedia is known to be The Most Accurate Website On The Internet, there's this tanking scandal (that it had intentionally lost matches near the end of the season so that it would receive a priority draft pick in the upcoming draft. The club was found not guilty of charges related to tanking, but senior coach Dean Bailey and general manager of football operations Chris Connolly were both found guilty of related charges.) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melbourne_Football_Club_tanking_scandal

  7. Deadspin posted this slideshow yesterday of where they feel each team ranks according to their QB situation. https://deadspin.com/ranking-where-all-32-nfl-teams-stand-with-their-qbs-fr-1845973927/slides/2 No surprise that the Chiefs, Bills, Cards are ranked high. Green Bay and Seattle in the top ten? Pretty solid opinions there. But let's go to the bottom of the list, shall we? 28. Jaguars 29. Broncos 30. New England 31. Jets 32. Washington Carolina came in at #22. Not in the top half of the list, but in some ways that's not totally unexpected, considering last
  8. How many "casualties" are the Panthers seemingly responsible for over the years, where the paperwork flies as an immediate action after a game against us? Haskins is most recent. There's at least three head coaches and one GM on the list.... who else?
  9. I see nothing wrong with this. Tepper's basically saying, "come to a decision together as a team. Because if you have to come to me for a final answer because you two can't figure it out, you won't like the outcome. Remember what happened Christmas week? Figure it out, gang. Figure it out."
  10. a) Rhule knows how to evaluate college players and figure out how to make them succeed on the field. Sure, it might take one season to get them rolling with The Process, but Rhule has proven he can take a ragtag gang of misfits and turn them into contenders in a short timeframe. b) Luke is also scouting players. And Luke knows how to watch tape. Who wouldn't want to be a fly on the wall listening to the Rhule + Luke analysis?
  11. Tepper believes in research and data and not making rash/immediate decisions. Putting the logo on the 50-yard line? No need to fret about something that's cosmetic, just take care of it. Question is whether we would be having this conversation if we had managed to win those handful of games that were within our grasp and were in playoff contention, or if a decision on Hurney was always next up at the end of this season regardless of outcome. I believe that Tepper had enough information to make this particular decision at any time he felt it was right to do so, but there were mo
