Yep and just because we didn’t bring in someone huge as a FA doesn’t mean we didn’t spend a lot. We spent about $120M in cap on Teddy, Sam, Okung, Short, Erving, Elflein, Weatherly, Apple and Roberts. Don’t forget throwing $30M at Robby for two more years. Just because we got complete and utter poo for that in 2020 and 2021 doesn’t mean we didn’t spend a ton. We did otherwise we’d be rolling over a ton of cap into 2022.

Nice reminder on Robby.  Robby is currently making more than Devante Adams, Diggs, etc this season.  Slated to be the 16th highest paid in the NFL next season too. 

another example of why Matt Rhule has botched the rebuild effort yet some what to give him MORE time.

Plain and simple.. If your going to rebuild stick to it.. Don't let small success fool you from your original assertion of a situation..

You sign Teddy to a 3 year deal.. He plays you into position for a QB.. Don't let close losses the season before stop you from drafting the future and keeping Teddy as the bridge Qb.. We were in position to succeed in a 3 year rebuild with a strong team young QB sitting and learning and all our assets to improve weak position (Oline, MLB, Safety).. For some reason they thought they were 1 player away and it's going to cost us year of bad mediocre football..

blame tepper, it's on him including the additions this year that aren't being used properly.

There's 5 games left and were in the thick of the playoff race, and are undefeated in our division and that will continue Sunday. Stop with the doom and gloom bullshit.

Cam had a rating of 125 for Carolina a couple weeks ago, in a Panthers uni - were going to get hot and Cam will save Rhule like he did Rivera.

We're making the playoffs.

😂 LOL

The problem with this thinking is Cam wanted to be paid and at that point wasn't willing to be a bridge QB.. So that was a bad situation to be in from the get go..

Then bring in competition and let him hold out if he wants to hardball. They moved aggressively because they thought Teddy was the answer and would be off the market fast.

Fitzpatrick, Tyrod, Dalton, Trubisky, and Jameis were all signed to 1 year deals this offseason. None of those guys are any kind of long term plan and likely wouldn't do much better, if at all, but at least someone like Trubisky has actually won some games (if they were bent on a reclamation). Any of those guys though do replace Teddy, prevent the Darnold situation, and still send the signal that wilting/failing like that 2020 offense did in crunch time isn't acceptable.

Again though, this whole thing should have been precluded in the first place by not dumping Cam as they did.

When Teddy was signed that was a done deal.  Trading him away was losing a asset on money he is being paid.. So bringing in another QB doesn't fixed the whole paying 2 ppl and still getting the same results...

It doesn't, but Teddy was a sunk cost and keeping him would have been choosing to destroy any chance of on-field success. It was a lesser-of-two-evils gamble and while the staff unfortunately did not appear to choose wisely with Darnold vs. the other options out there, that still doesn't make getting rid of Teddy the wrong decision.

Hmmm!! Definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results.

Same thing was sticking to the plan and draft a young QB out of this draft.. Trading for Darnold and trading Teddy killed all that..

Be real if we probably have a better record with Teddy and if not we would have a young QB waiting in the wings right now instead of QB purgatory we are in now.

Keeping him I feel would have guaranteed we drafted a QB this year.. Getting Sam destroyed that option...

And reality is if we'd stayed with the plan we could have had a better record with Teddy and if not Atleast a young QB learning and waiting in the wings to take over..

    • Have you seen Jordan Love? He's not terrible. 
    • Anything and a lot of not good if possible. There is a lot we don't know that could factor into what Rhule does. Is he given a real ultimatum? Or is he out there doing Rhule stuff? They thought they built a good oline last offseason, good enough to ignore oline way more than they should have ever allowed. So what has really changed other than the obvious public criticism? The level of dysfunction that the organization is running with looks to be growing. Hell throw in the new rockstar OC's influence that could be built into taking the job. Positive or negative, looking at the candidates I expect negative but you know broken clocks being right and all. What about the other people in house trying to distance themselves from Fhule's rule? It's chaos right now and a lot is possible, even the WTF options.  There is what I would love but really a lot more is on the table...I just discount great decisions because that is not a standard deviation at this point in the 5 year process.   
    • I could see Tepper pushing for Rodgers or Wilson to juice the organization.
