Cam changed our franchise for almost a decade.? Check out all of those back to back winning seasons… You need a team around the QB as well, in which we failed Cam. First thing the Chargers did is try to beef up their line, because they know it starts there after you have your guy.
We should see what we have is Sam. That being said, I think this team is better than most people think it is. We have some talent and we are young, and have a very manageable cap situation which means we probably have a 5 to 7 year window starting this season.
I think if we can find a good qb (maybe Sam can be the guy) then we can make the playoffs every year, making us a dark horse contender. The falcons are further behind rebuilding than we are, and both the saints and the bucs will be rebuilding within the next 2 years. Our time is coming fast. If Sam isn't the guy we need to start turning over every stone to find a starting qb. A guy like Rivers could.be a good rental for a year or 2 if we have to draft some young guys. Rivers could be deadly with the weapons we have. Our offense is stacked, better than any team he has ever played for.
I like Horn, and I'm not going to pretend like I know how Fields career pans out.
You still have to take Fields in that draft unless we just absolutely hated him. Should he have success, this staff then deserves all the hate in the world for buying Teddy stock, (potentially) Darnold stock, and passing on (potentially) a franchise QB. I feel like a lot of our plans got shifted after the Watson news came out, but I sure as poo hope the Panthers FO knows something about Fields that a lot of media, fans, etc. don't.
