  1. You think Rhule is worrying about the optics and how fans are going to react on a message board? This is all player and coaching evaluation. He'll be flexible with the amount of snaps the 1s get, but it won't be based on "The backups are making plays on us, we look bad" it's a glorified practice.
  2. I like the thought on roster building here. Try and maximize what you have. It's been preached non stop here. Versatility.
  3. Jackson is going to have a huge year. I hope we pay him too. Him and Horn for the next 3-5 years? Ohh wee mayne!
  4. I thought it was confirmed earlier this year. He's got an up hill battle. Year off, new coaching staff. He did flash some as a rookie. I bet if we drop him he will be in DC in no time.
  5. I could see him being here as a backup as well. Kinda thin at the position, depends on how the rookies look ( I'm thinking we have 2 drafted and 1 UDFA Oline ). I think the tweet just means to say don't work under the assumption Little will be starting anywhere on the line.
  6. Good signing! He's going to pair well with Brown. They should help free each other. Plus they play with a mean streak on the DLine in Tennessee, we can always use more of that. I kinda wish it was a 2 year deal to be honest.
  7. I trust the staff. If one of these guys falls and they don't think he's worth #8 and grab the BPA I'll be happy. I don't pretend to know how to evaluate a player and the guys we have running things right now seem to do. With Hurney there was no trust after the first round. It might as well have been me making those picks.
  8. Least is WR. I think we have enough talent to make it work and adding some guys at the middle/back of the draft. I'd say LB but Parsons looks too legit.
  9. I like the insight McCown provided. I don't know if you guys remember that shoot out Darnold had his rookie year with Rodgers, but if that was what he plays like when he feels comfortable we are in for some fun.
  10. Considering everything we know about Darnold : 1 - He was a project when drafted. Not a long football history so there was work to be done. 2 - For most of his career with the Jets he was without a QB coach and had Gase to rely on to develop him. So not a good situation at all. 3 - He is young and probably a Iittle rattled from running for his life non stop. He needs to game slowed down for him first and build from there. That all taken into account, I think you treat him somewhat like a rookie. Which I'm sure the staff is going to do. I'd place the same expectations I would if we got Fields/Lance/Wilson. To be good and show improvement through the year and limit the turnovers.
  11. I think they grab an oline 1st or 2nd. It will be tough at #8 because I could see us go Pitts or Parsons.
  12. I'd rather give Darnold a shot then run Teddy back out there. To give some perspective, I know Darnold hasn't grown much since he's been in the league but I think he only had a QB coach for 1 of those years. That's how inept Base was. So he was never put in a position to improve.
  13. Good for Curtis. I think he is going to be good up there with McLaurin taking the attention. We'll miss him but I guess it wasn't in the cards. I'm trying to decide whether I'd prefer they draft a guy or save the picks for linemen/CBs and sign someone.
  14. Nice signing! Lets hope he reproduces his production from last year for us. These guys know Reddick and he should thrive here.
  15. Losing Kerr and Odaba would be tough. That's some solid production that would need to be replaced. If we signed Odaba long-term I was thinking about getting a Jersey.
  16. Dang that would suck. He was only getting better year over year. Plus he can play inside and out.
  17. Not that I want Jones at all but, it is good to know that our staff spent a lot of time with him at the senior bowl so they will have really liked what they saw. They'll have a good idea of who he is and what he can do. It would give me some comfort. I hope it doesn't happen.
  18. The Mayor of Charlotte! A favorite of every Carolina fan. That is a man to admire. I hope he comes back to the team after he retires. Coaching , mentorship, community outreach something.
  19. This past football year was pretty fun. Its nice when all you're looking for is progress and you get surprised with more progress then you expected. I'll tell you whats different. KK would still be getting paid right now, Boston would still be here and we would be signing declining vets to band aid the secondary if our old regime was still in charge.
  20. I get it as a gut reaction but he was injured his rookie year and last year he showed flashes. I think that lines up with a player who has raw talent but needs to hone his skills. I understand he was picked earlier then he needed to be but everyone isn't going to come in and produce in year 1/2. It takes time and you have to give him that. I'm also not saying time is going to make him a better player, that's up to him and the coaches, but we need the time to find out and by time I mean this year. He needs to put together a consistent year of at least average play. I really think if he was taken in the 3rd it wouldn't be this hot of an issue, but Marty had to Marty. The cost is spent the only value that matters now is what he can add to the team.
  21. I mean hes has a contract, we are super thin at the position and its year 3 for him. I see no reason to not keep him until at least the end of training camp. I think people forget that a lot of what was said about Little around draft time was that he was a great athlete with great size, Little has good feet but the rest of his technique needs work. Which is why he was taken too high. Let this staff work with him for a year or two and see what they can make of his skills. They seem more capable of molding him them our last staff, which couldn't build up a o-line player to save their jobs.
  22. I hope they lock this guy up for the next few years. I feel like his production is only going up. Plus he's versatile, plays well both inside and outside.
  23. I won't complain about making our OLine better. We've needed one for almost 10 years now. Not always sexy but it pays offs.
