  1. These are the kind of things that make me confident: https://sports.theonion.com/panthers-adopt-patchy-haired-shivering-rescue-qb-who-s-1846644313
  2. I'm not sure I see a lot of cockiness or even confidence. But when the security staff led Hurney out the door with his stuff, some hope did develop. The problem we have now is we have people who react to things as if Hurney was still running things. The fact is we have no decision-makers from that era of relative futility. Let's allow this group to establish its own level of competence or futility before we saddle them with "more of the same." As for franchises stumbling into a few winning seasons despite themselves, that could honestly describe at least 20 NFL teams. The only on
  3. You don't get it. The usual misfits on the Huddle are much more in-tune with what is going on around the league and player evaluations than our FO. According to our gurus, Fit was in his office, on the phone with the Jets trying to make a deal for Darnold while Rhule was in his office, also on the phone with the Jets bidding against Fit, while Tepper was yelling "get the Jets on the phone, I will not be outbid." Or so some would have us believe.
  4. Cincy would be fools to not take him given they got Burrows murdered in season one. That said, Cincy has played the role of court jester before, so it would not be unprecedented. Miami and Detroit are looking hard at WRs. I think Sewell might be a harder pick for the Lions to pass on if he is there, but one could say the same about Chase, Waddle, or Smith in their situation, too. Miami trading down to 6 I think tipped their hand for a WR. I have no idea what Atlanta will do. If they are circling the wagons for one last run with Ryan and Julio, then their defense needs some serio
  5. That would be the only scenario in which I would consider passing on either Sewell or Slater, if they are still on the board. I'm not a Lance hater, and in the right situation he may turn out to be an amazing QB. We are just not the right situation at this point, especially with pick 8 and huge needs at OL (almost all of it), CB, LB, TE, DT, and potentially little depth at WR. I'm not whining about our roster situation. 12 months ago we basically had to gut the roster to exorcise the demons of the prior regime rewarding players (our own or FAs) based on what they did a couple of s
  6. To me, they should be focusing on Sewell or Slater now with pick 8. If, somehow, Fields drops to 8 they really have to think long and hard about it. I doubt he is, but.... Our QB depth chart has been one layer deep for 2 or 3 seasons now. As of this second, we have Darnold and TB. Even if that sticks, TB is gone after this next season, if not sooner. Either way, it would give us the luxury of checking out Darnold for a while and if he is fool's gold, Fields comes in later in the season, after some time to acclimate. If Fields wins the job but Darnold did not stink up the joint,
  7. No, I read it right, I expressed my point poorly. I am agreeing with you completely. They were the better WR group on the field against a lot of teams, but not when the opponent was Auburn or Bama. They were perhaps as good as Fields had, but that is about as much credit as I can give them as a group. My belief on Lance's ceiling is that he is getting the same benefit of the doubt as any QB from a small, off-the-Radar school. People question the level of competition, and rightly so as it is a concern. His unknown is compounded because he has been even more invisible the past 12+ mont
  8. Lance's upside is based on raw talent and the unknown. His ceiling and floor would be better defined if we had more of a body of work to look at, especially if some part of that was against tougher competition (or perceived tougher competition). Put him at Ole Miss or Wisconsin (for example) and both his ceiling and floor would be better known. Raw QB talent in the hands of a good offensive coaching staff (dear gawd, not "Quarterback whisperers") who has the luxury of patience can yield huge results. Trial by fire usually does not work in the NFL for raw prospects, unless the team is s
  9. Neither of these things would surprise me one bit. Lance has the most potential, but is also the biggest risk. Put him on the Jest and the odds are it is an epic fail. Wilson looks good, but his durability worries me. Physically, Cam he is not. Lawrence's biggest concern is where he winds up. The Jacksonville stables are not known for grooming thoroughbreds. They are more known for turning thoroughbreds into plow horses. Not as efficient at it as the Jest for that, but still. If nothing else, Fields may have the best chance just because he is not immediately sentenc
  10. Like all stats, in a vacuum it does not say a lot. That said, scoring well on it is certainly an asset and disproves the one-read concern for Fields. I've always been skeptical of OSU QBs (and some other big schools that are juggernauts in their conferences, or in Notre Dame's case, with no conference), but Fields has a different look to him than his predecessors. I didn't see a lot of him, but when I did he showed me more skills that I think translate to an NFL QB than those who preceded him and fell on their faces. This is an over-simplification, but he has shown to be more of a pas
  11. It could also be an offshoot of the knee injury. Brady's knee injury was clearly in his mind (based on his reactions to getting hit) for a long time, and he was playing every week after he recovered to come to terms with it. Imagine a worse injury and playing a handful of games over a few seasons afterwards. I really can't say what that would do to a player.
  12. The problem is TB (our version) is risk averse. He is a game manager to an extreme. I saw Joe Gibbs in his second stint do that to Jason Campbell. Nobody will ever know what Campbell might have been, because his first few years Gibbs drilled into him some version of "whatever you do, just don't throw an interception." The guy never really got over that. Not sure how TB got to that point, but he certainly looks that way. It is also possible he is not averse to throwing interceptions as much as the clock in his head goes off early. With our OL, that was a pretty safe bet since
  13. That is about the best description I think there is.
  14. But, we also miss the fallout: when the DB wins that fight or puts himself in better position to grab the pick without a fight. Mostly, I would prefer a QB that is more of a game manager at the NFL level. People tend to reduce this to whether we would rather have Teddy or Mahomes? That is not a valid comparison. It is much like asking whether you would rather have Montana or Jameis, the extremes in the other direction. I consider Brady (and Montana before him) game managers (if the classification is one or the other) because they let their head dictate what their arm will do
  15. Brady has been a game manager most of his career, he is just extremely good at it. His last two Super Bowls were 13-3 and 31-9. Our TB could win games if the defense held the opponent to 3 FGs, at worst, especially if the league decided to change what the officials. Brady picks his spots are winging it downfield and generally making "the right throw." What separates him is his judgement of when to wing it downfield. You generally will not Brady drop back and say "here goes nothing," which is why Arians needed to shut up and let Brady be Brady. By strict definition, Montana was a
