Fitterer needed to call Douglas regardless. 
 

It’s good for Fitterer to know where they stand with Darnold and if that 2nd pick is for sale

Bingo.  And he needs to call Detroit and see what they want for Goff, since they pick before us.  If you have some idea of the asking price, you can possibly gauge what they are thinking.

It's been mentioned before, but "in on every deal" was always likely to include some that fans aren't gonna like.

i guess it’s better than the mid-late 2000s days when they wouldn’t touch any player on the trading block bc “we build through the draft”, “we have 21 of 22 starters returning from our 8-8 team last year”, “there’s no place in our offense for a TE that doesn’t have bricks for hands”, etc.

I think it's smart to be on every deal or perceived deal out there. Who knows we could get something different than what we thought we could get, and I'm meaning that in a good way. Darnold has been in a crappy situation his whole time so a change could do wonders

It's good to be involved in all of these QB situations. Think about how many times over the years under Marty we'd hear about some player we wanted getting traded for way less than we could have offered, or better trades that we didn't even show interest in. 

Also, it's a great way to find out who else is involved and what kind of capital they're playing with. I think about what Rhule said about the GM interview process...how he would have paid for the information he got from all of those interviews. They're collecting data, and I love it.

What do we know about Darnold?  He was good in college, has struggled for 3 years in NY.  Threw too many interceptions, but when you are one-dimensional, always playing from behind, passing is tougher. He will be 24, and he is on a first-round rookie contract for 1 more season.

So what would he do with a better coach, OL, running game, and defense? 

Better. 

Is better enough?

I wouldn't even offer them a half eaten ham sandwich for Goff.

I looked it up and he threw 26 TDs and 13 INTs in 14 games in his last year at USC including 2 INTs in each of the first 3 games. For his career at USC he had 22 INTs in 27 games (24 starts).

This is a hell of a long con if we're not interested in any QB and we're just trying to force a team to trade up ahead of us so a non-QB falls to us at #8.

We had Detroit fooled.

And playing for Gase cannot be understated. That man could turn a diamond into coal.

I missed a call from a 704 number this morning. I'm just gonna assume it was Fitts seeing if I can still chuck that pigskin.

How do you feel about running for your life every play? Also, what are your thoughts on checking down?
