I said 0.0% chance that 4 go in 7 picks.  I still stand by that.  This qb class isnt that good.  I think the shine is wearing off on Lance and Fields a bit now that the film is being digested. 

 

If the Falcons and their cap situation pass on Pitts for a qb then I believe they may be the dumbest franchise outside of the Jets.  No way they dont try and run this back with Ryan and Co for the next 2ish years.  Pitts makes them unstoppable

 

But in closing like I said, if we thought Fields was a franchise qb we would have made the move. 

Prepare thys anus my guy....

I sorta agree, but when the season is on the line....That is how kids bust.  Herbert was supposed to ride pine and got thrown in too early.  He is OK.  Watson, Cam, Murray, etc.  started week 1.  It is a rough way to begin. Three games in preseason and 7 in regular season is not unthinkable.

My jaw still hasnt came up form witnessing Herberts rookie year. If they had a league wide(ALL players) re-draft, *right now* Id take Herbert 2nd overall. Coaches job is to prepare the players. Some rookies are ready AND the better player. QBs that are moblie can over come all the old school thoughts/issues, they just have to not believe the QB MUST stay in the pocket for success. All the QBs you listed can move, Fields and lance can too so they maybe adapt faster than people like me believe... RPO is a god send for these QBs too.

Herbert walked into a dream situation though - good Oline, throwing to Allen and Henry.

Which brings us back to Darnold.  I agree 100%.  Not that Darnold will be successful, but we can probably all agree that he will be more successful.

I agree. Just hope the fans don't trash Darnold and throw him under the bus the first bad game he has

It was better than ours, so where does that leave us?

...okay? What does the Panthers OL have to do with what you said and my response?

Less rumor, more somethingI heard from someone I know well connected with one of our division rivals.

 

“They’ll be fine if the Panthers go OT at 8.  They just don’t want them to get Chase/Waddle/or Smith.  They don’t won’t to give that staff all the Weapons they’d have and surround Darnold with them.  They can piece together a avg OL with this depth in this class.  But giving Brady/Rhule that.  It makes you a little nervous.”

I have had the same thought--even though I want a LT badly.  I have stated that it seems the Panthers have addressed the T spot to some degree--$8m guaranteed to Erving on a 2-year deal, re-signed Scott, Daley is available if he is not injured, etc.

But we let Curtis Sam walk out of here and have reacted by signing a WR that had half the yards and receptions last year.  You have to think we are not done.  I think Moore #2 is a WR #4.  Maybe the slot is open.

TE is also a weapon, and upgrading at TE in this draft requires that you take Pitts if he is there.  Suddenly, you have a dangerous person in addition to your dangerous WRs.

So here is the plan---get weapons and get more dangerous.  Moore is not bad at slot if you have Pitts.  If you don't get Pitts, you need one of the big playmakers, and who is the draft's biggest playmaker at slot WR?  Waddle. 

Moore/Anderson/Moore#2/Pitts

Moore/Anderson/Waddle/Arnold

I'd love Smith.  I think he's a HOFer.  Weight is somewhat worrisome but it didn't hinder Marvin Harrison, who is his best comp.  Or Torry Holt.

    • Quoting from today's presser via The Athletic... “We have purposely taken the approach of developing Sam – and all of our quarterbacks this spring – as a drop-back passer and put a lot on them,” said Rhule, the Panthers’ second-year coach. “More than most teams will probably do with a quarterback – more than probably the coaches are comfortable with. “But for me it’s about just putting so much on those guys — not giving them a bunch of easy plays where they can go out and feel confident and look good,” Rhule added. “Our defense is giving us a lot of different looks. So I want to stretch those guys and see what they do well and then we can be more targeted in training camp and into the season.” The first part of that statement interests me, specifically the part about developing their quarterbacks as "drop back passers". Neither Bridgewater nor Darnold would rightly be seen as big run threats (neither are statues either, but still). And of course, the team passed on drafting a quarterback who was. It makes me wonder if Rhule and/or Brady aren't necessarily concerned with superior athleticism at the quarterback position. You'll note he talks a lot about mental preparation here, but physical...not so much. Arguing against that idea though is the fact that the team seems extremely interested in athleticism at pretty much every other position. With that said though, there are plenty of successful teams whose quarterbacks aren't amazing athletes (including the one that captured last year's Super Bowl trophy). So is this an indicator of Rhule's QB philosophy or just an emphasis they have right now?
    • We don’t need to pay monk anything big, that’s for sure and we always need shooters
    • Hard no on that. Taking dumb penalties is not smart. Especially when you get a rep as a dirty player.
