  2. Let’s take stidham and give him the keys soon as he’s ready or colt gets injured.  

     

    Then...we ride with stidham until 2022...at which point we have either found our qb, or are perhaps in position to take TLawrence.

  3. If we want to build a CONSISTENT winner here again, we must draft, draft and draft some more.  

     

    We have started doing just that the past few seasons...not just hitting on top picks but finding later picks that develop and contribute MEANINGFUL minutes.

     

    we did not draft a lot over the past decade or so and even when we did, we didn’t hit on much.  Failed bandaid FA experiments have tied up money.  

    Ike the OP says...let’s take our meds.  

     

    I dont care care if tony banks is our QB next year.  We use 2019 to continue the churn, hope we continue to hit on multiple picks and continue to develop whatever id Jay is working.  

     

    2020...we get our qb.  Time to take the meds we’ve been avoiding for years.  

     

    Draft Draft Draft...then Draft some more.  If we’re not doing this, we’re wrong...imo

    Honestly, what I would do? 

     

    Fire Gruden and Allen, cut Smith

    and Norman, and take the entire cap hit in 2019. I’d also look to trade Trent, Reed and CT.  

     

    Draft as well as possible, but sign virtually no FAs, with the expectation that 2019 is a lose for picks type year.

     

    Then draft a QB in 2020 and start building.

     

    This team is stuck in Grudallen middle-of-the-pack suckdom, and in order to build a true champioship calibre roster, you need to jettison some pieces.

     

    Build around Allen, Payne and the DL and young defensive players.  

     

    For a competent FO, you have one year of suck, clear all the dead cap stuff, stock up on picks, get real talent and look to 2020 and beyond.

     

    This is what the Browns did.  

     

    Going from perennial 8-8 to 11-5 is harder that 5-11.

     

    Gotta trim off all the mediocre Gruden try hard guys and get guys with more talent and upside.

    I’m for it...Trevor Lawrence 2020!  😕


  5. Winning produces full stadiums.  We haven’t won consistently in forever so our stadiums are typically full of errbody else’s fans since the dmv is full of transients.  Ofcourse, through it all, the diehards remain.  They get out cheered during losses by opposing fans and boo the team during grind it out times.  

     

    Skins havent been the same since we sold our souls to move out of dc.  Alienated the fan base and provided an inferior product...every stinking season since.  

     

    The entire franchise needs consistency

    ....fans included


  6. We’re 5-2 and you can tell Jay Gruden ain’t happy.  He wants to throw the ball better so bad he can’t stand it lol.  We’re not going back to Marty ball by any means.  He’s gonna get the passing game goin.  

     

    Love how we’ve built the team around the defense though.  I wouldn’t be mad if we got another Bama lineman next draft lol.  been preaching to any fan that’ll hear it...you pressure any qb in his face early and often, you win.  We can finally do that.  

     

    Pressure without a blitz is a luxury we haven’t had since Mann, Manley and butz.  That’s a long time

     

    jay Gruden isn’t going to rest on the laurels of ap.  We know ap can carry us.  That is important.  It’s allowed us to win in spite of injuries to key players on offense...which has had an impact on the sync Alex Smith has with the offense now.  

     

    The stove is warming up folks.  ?


  7. Not since the days of Mann, Manley and Butz have we had a defensive line capable of dictating the flow of a game.   We now have that.  

     

    If you pressure a QB in his face early and often without blitzing...AND...you consistently stop the run...your team will win a lot of football games.  We now have that.

     

    ...we just turning on the stove folks...
