Rhule on QB (Darnold) & my translation.

 Based on what I've read from various sources, Tepper believed in Fields.

Rhule and Fitterer? Not so much. 

Ultimately, the way things are structured, it was not Tepper's decision. 

The difference between Tepper and Snyder is Snyder was the one who reportedly wanted Haskins, and by golly, they were drafting Haskins.  Despite the fact that the people hired to know about that stuff didn't want him.

Tepper may have wanted Fields, but when the people he hired to make those calls made them, they drafted somebody else.

Which is how it should be.

If people want to criticize the outcomes of decisions I get it, but to think that somehow this one flew under Rhule’s radar, who from what I can tell from a distance, is a compulsive worker and student of the game, blew my mind a little bit.

I didn’t intend for it to turn into all this 

also would like to mention that there are holes and merits to the arguments made against the decisions made but at a certain point it becomes conjecture and i don’t want to open that bag of worms

 

Unfortunately, that is how it goes around here. Folks disagree with you and try and change your mind. When at first it doesn't succeed, they double down. They just have to convert you to their stance. And Viola, you get this.

 

At least it's been civil. So you got that going for you. lol

The people (assuming they are not bots) involved in this thread may have some strong opinions, but I have not known them to get crazy, even when people (assuming they are not bots) got crazy with them.  Now there are some others who, if they join in the fun, will get the thread locked.

Person and others. 

Our not attending his second workout was also a hint. 

Perhaps, but at that point, we probably knew that it was a waste of time anyway, as the 49ers were already all-in, and we didn't want to spend the draft capital and decided that there was a better value.

Lol I mean I was kind of being a dick by calling out linville, I could of just read it and kept it moving, so there’s definitely opportunities for growth there on my part.

That being said I’m bowing out boys/girls.

When it is a civil conversation, I'm in. When It gets crazy? I watch from the sidelines. lol

It's all good. People can disagree. It'd be a boring circle jerk I'd everyone agreed about everything.

Rhule is a great college coach.  But there are lots of great college coaches that won't make it in the NFL.  Different animal.   Rhule has never built teams and won in the manner required to in the NFL though. 

Saban went right back to college when he couldn't get a QB in Miami.   No QB?  Saban said it was impossible to win in the NFL and he wasn't hanging around without it.   Miami opted to bring in Teddy/Darnold types.  He said bye bye. 

Great QBs are rare.  So when you have a chance to possibly grab one you need to take the shot.  Love or hate Fields.....that was one of those lotto tickets a team without a QB has to take. NFL runs through the QB. 

 

 

Saban ran back to college because his little Napoleon complex doesn't fly with millionaire athletes.

That may be true. But it does fit the profile. IMO, he is a narcissists, who cannot stomach the thought of his name not being associated with winning. And in the NFL, he wasn't winning enough.

I was thinking the same thing, but you said it oh so much more colorfully.

At least Rhule seems more open-minded. He's certainly more of genuine team builder IMHO. Not that he doesn't know what to do with it, but Saban gets the best.
