The fact that writer got paid to write the same speculation that people have been posting here is just sad.

The Huddle should pay us for how much 🥧 we earn!!! 🤣

We would be stupid if Fields fell, and he was the best option left but we passed on him because we didn't have our people look at him.

 

If only they had remembered to do their jobs and look at him! They really need to write that down in their agendas. "Remember to look at the QB whose name is on the program! Do not trade for someone else's QB who is their to look at QB whose name is on the program!!! 

That way they wouldn't do anything stupid.

This makes the most sense. I don’t know why people are struggling with this. We got Darnold because there was significant doubt Fields will be there at 8. After the draft, Darnold’s price could go up for desperate teams. We went ahead and secured our backup plan for little draft cost.

I think if they wanted Fields they would’ve moved up already. Picking Fields or any QB at #8 would make no sense at this point. The offensive line has been a glaring weakness for over a decade and that should be the focus.

So the real catch is what the writer thinks a future 2nd and 6th, 4th round picks are valued. Do I value them as strong enough capital to pass on a potential franchise QB if he happens to fall to us at 8? Absolutely not. I think it was used to move on from Teddy (apparently Tepper wants this) and secure a young QB with potential in case the one we like isn’t there at 8 (which he very well might not be). Do they think Darnold can be a starter? Yeah I think they believe that. A top 10 drafted QB is viewed at as more than just a starter. They can be franchise changers. Alex Smith was a solid starter yet the Chiefs still traded up for Mahomes. It all boils down to how they view Fields and none of us know the answer nor should we at this point. 

Here is a great example. We viewed Teddy as a starter and gave him a solid contract showing our confidence in him. They have stated if Herbert fell to them he would have been the pick. Imagine if he did fall and we didn’t draft him because we had a potential starter in Teddy and too many needs in other areas...

I think they add up to the value of our third round pick this year, if I'm not mistaken.

The article you linked in the next post contradicts your take on Darnold.

Quoting:

The real question is: does it make sense to still take a quarterback? Giving up three draft picks, although not a huge haul, are still three draft picks at the end of the day. You don't just give that kind of draft capital for a guy you hope can be the answer and maybe be a backup to the guy you draft in the first round. That's a type of move that shows you have confidence in the player that you're trading for. 

Could this just be the Panthers bluffing to get teams from behind them to trade up into Carolina's spot? Possibly. Then again, if Brady, Rhule, and Fitterer truly fall in love with Fields maybe they do draft him and let he and Darnold compete. It's all a game of unknowns right now and one that we likely won't know the answer to until draft night. 

I agree, it would be asinine to pick a guy who wouldn’t start day one with the 8th pick. I’d be shocked if we didn’t take bpa of either OL, DB or trade down.

So you would have passed on Herbert last year if he dropped to us since we had Teddy? He didn’t start over Taylor day one for SD. Mahomes was pick 11 and didn’t start day one.

Fitt gonna draft Fields, then trade him 10 minutes later to NE for 3 first rounders

I'd honestly be incredibly tempted to take Fields if he was there at #8. For this very reason.

Fields would be a great pick, as Teddy could mentor him for the next 2-3 years as Favre did with Rodgers. At that point Teddy will be just over 30, and if he is still going strong Fields could be prime trade bait.

Your trolling is at least consistent. Also, Favre is on a different level than Teddy, he’s not afraid, and he didn’t mentor Rodgers. There was a lot of tension there and it was reported quite a bit that Favre didn’t go out of his way to mentor him.

Also, the last thing we need is a guy who doesn’t want the ball with the game on the line, who doesn’t hit a wide open WR 5 yards away because he’s a little rushed getting to the line and who throws 1 yard passes with the game on the line and almost 10 yards to go.

We don’t need to waste any more more and thought on a nice guy.

He's as much of a risk for much less cost.

I think he'll be better than Wilson or Lance or Jones. And I think that if he's there, we should take him, unless Sewell is there.  If Sewell is there you turn in the card with 9:59 left.

No if Fields is there you take him period. Should have traded up to get him. We’re going to look back at Fields as a huge mistake. Sewell ain’t going to matter when you have bums throwing the ball. Just going to be a guy that leaves in 5 years or you have to tag. Teddy wasn’t it and I told y’all that when the move was made. Same way I’m screaming Darnold ain’t it. The answers are right there in our damn faces.
