apparently there was some drama in our draft room


Recommended Posts

I wasn't happy with the trading down, and down, and down. I think we passed up on some sure things in an effort to get quantity. I've been told to trust the process and the board, trust that the coach knows what he needs and our new GM knows what he is doing.

Okay, I'm certainly going to try.

September is a long way off and it's going to be a long wait to see the plan fall into place. I just don't think I've got the patience for another 5-11 (6-11/5-12 now) year in me. If we can't begin moving forward then I'm going to lose all faith in Rhule.

We've got some outstanding talent here in CMC and Moore, Brown and Burns, Chinn and Moton. We've got a kicker that will probably break the longest FG record (and miss a hunk of them, too) and a former first round draft pick QB who can hopefully become what he should have been.

I just don't want 2021's season to be like the one before: a 16-week binge watching of Scrubs. I don't want to see another rendition of the "Team that almost won."

I mean there were some people on here that questioning some of the picks and were labeled "overreacting" so this isnt surprising people in the actually draft room felt the same. "Calculated risks" is the perfect label for this just draft, there was a clear area of huge need or needs on the roster that this draft would have fixed but they chose to go a alternate direction. It is what is, but if this backfires you best believe its gonna be sparks flying around within that staff regarding Fitt.

I mean, I doubt Rhule and the new GM even agree on every decision in real time.   Then you have the natural O and D splits. 

I don’t get the feeling it was a confrontation between Rhule and Fitts. I think if there was a specific player rhule wanted we would have gone after that player earlier when we could. Unless fitts has the final say, but I don’t see that with what Tepper wants from Rhule. It sounds like either Brady got frustrated or Tepper was “gimme a fugging LT” and fitts said trust the board. we had ample chances to get a starting LT and rhule/fitts decided to go corner/WR so...

I mean the boss the is the boss.  I mean, at work here we all can have 3 different solid opinions on a problem.  Boss takes it all and makes the call.   That's just life.  

I mean reports are Fields was in the mix until the end for example? That means clearly someone had to think that was the right call.  Same with pick 2.  Different takes.  Same with probably most picks.  

I'm not implying not agreeing in real time has to be confrontational.   I can disagree with my boss and then go to work on what he thinks is best.  That's just how it works.

I fugging told y’all. Outsmarted themselves with that first trade down in the second. That’s why this draft is a low grade for me.

I am a fan that wanted one of the top 2 LT's.  Fact is, after that, there was a huge drop off. Once in the 2nd round, there isn't enough difference between what went ahead of us and what we ended up getting in the 3rd.  I can easily argue that Christianson is as good as anybody we could have gotten in the 2nd,  and is a better fit for this team since our coach staff prefer their linemen to be able to play multiple positions across the line. 

So go ahead, keep your way to early low score on the draft. 

Go ahead, thump your chest about what you think. 

While the Panthers will just.move on with what they got.

Interesting insight from Gantt. Reminds me of Voth’s comments from the Kyle Bailey show where he basically said, sure Darnold has all these weapons but if the offensive line falls apart there could be a repeat of what went down in his time with the NYJ.

I'd rather have Marshall and Christensen than Liam Eichenberg and the 3rd round receivers, not sad at all about the other tackles that went (mostly RT's)

I would have been on board trading down in the 1st to pick up an extra 2nd and would rather have had Fairley and Moehrig over just Horn, but that's whatever.

Still think LT is a need and Christensen will be a great LG

Same. Most of the time I type things (especially in Tinder Box) that will surely stir up something. Playing Devils Advocate is fun.
