    Is this the best Defensive Front we've had in years?

    Oh right. That first Giants game felt like the game he started to turn things around, though. After that Beckham catched, he had a great breakup on Sterling Shepard

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Yep. I advocated shooting to get Mullens for a pick in another thread. This should be the plan versus trading multiple picks to draft Haskins

    Safety Clinton Dix to the skins

    I think a major reason they target Bama guys on defense is because they run a 3-4

    I think there is a general feeling he's been bad because of the NO and ATL games. However, he's been fairly solid since, starting with the TB game. Danny Johnson, however, has been absolute trash. Adonis should be getting snaps ahead ofh im
  5. At the end of the day, Preston likely gets paid more than Murphy does and I'd rather have the comp pick. Ryan Anderson needs to start - otherwise, it is a wasted 2nd round pick. If you need to replace Preston and you keep Kerrigan, given how deep this draft is with rush LBs, you'll be able to find at least a rotation piece in rd. 3

    Starting QB 2019???

    If Alex is on the roster April 2019, he gets more guaranteed money in 2020 the way his contract is structured. We need to eat the pain over one season and be in a position to hit the ground running in 2020 without a drag on cap room. For the extra $20M we need to trim, between releasing Norman and Brown and trading 1 or 2 of Kerrigan, Reed and Williams, that should get the job done. If your argument is that this hamstrings us in FA, then so be it. With Preston Smith, Clinton-Dix, Crowder and AP (although I'd bring him back if cheap) all set to his the FA market, the play should be to gun for comp picks. Between those three, we are due at least 3 if we sign only players released by other teams to plug gaps for 2019. That way, you are set up for a win-win situation either way in 2020. If Mullens does not work out for 2019, you have stockpiled at least 10 picks (and maybe more if they are smart and trade back with the picks in this draft to get more picks in next year's draft) to move up in 2020 to get one of the top QBs. If Mullens does work out, then 10 picks is still super useful for building this team up with cheap young talent in a hurry, which also means... ...you have a ton of money in the 2020 FA market to go after cream of the crop free agents and more than enough money to resign Scherff and Ioannidis, who will both hit the FA market because you would've eaten the full Alex Smith cap hit in 2019

    Starting QB 2019???

    Being undrafted and getting cut last year is irrelevant to what he is doing now. You forget Warner, Romo and Delhomme, among others, were all undrafted? On our team, you know who got cut in their rookie year and got put on the pratice squad? Matt Ioannidis In those 5 total NFL games, the guy has thrown for 1,479 yards, 9 TDs, and, yes, 6 picks. That is absolutely fantastic for someone playing his first five games in the NFL. It's true he has weapons and his weapons are sligthly better overall than the ones he has on the Skins but, outside of Breida and Kittle, there are no real world beaters on that team. Furthermore, you know what his cap hit is in 2019? $570K. If you dump Smith, having a starting QB making $570K is one way to offset the heavy dead cap hit. Besides Fitz getting paid at least $6M a year more than Mullens, you know how else they are different? Mullens is 23, Fitz is 36. I'm just guessing it's likely that Mullens continues to improve while Fitz is who he is.

    Starting QB 2019???

    I like what I'm reading about Haskins - he seems to be pretty advanced in his game relative to a QB w his QB in terms of football intelligence. However, he doesn't seem to be a special enough prospect to give up 2 #1s for. It's probably a better bet to trade a 2nd for Nick Mullens, who we need to remember will be dirt cheap for the next 3 years. It's also worth bringing in someone else who is seemingly competent and on a minimum deal like Chad Kelly as a backup. If you have 2 guys on minimum deals at the QB position, that puts you in a spot to cut Alex Smith and eat the the entire hit in 2019. That way, there is hope in 2019 with a QB who has been competent thus far in Mullens. If Mullens tanks and we stink, then you are in a position to take Fromm or Tua in 2020. Because you've also eaten the Alex Smith cap hit in 2019, you are in a position to reload the team w quality free agents in 2020 as well

    Didn't Antonio Pierce suck in pass coverage?

    Is this the best Defensive Front we've had in years?

    The more I think about it, this offseason is the time to move over full time to a 4-3. We really are set up to do so. I would go with the following setup: RDE: ??? (More on Ion in a minute, should let Smith go in order to get a comp pick) DT: Payne / Settle DT: Allen LDE: Kerrigan / Anderson SLB: Zach Brown MLB: Reuben Foster (if he isn't suspended) / Vigil / SDH WLB: ??? (maybe Harvey-Clemons) - this tends to be someone who is 230ish and can cover well CB1: ??? CB2: Dunbar Nickel: Moreau FS: Nicholson SS: Swearinger It is clear Norman is not worth $15M/yr anymore. The upcoming FA market is light in terms of finding a #1 corner. I would push to trade Ion for Jalen Ramsey, who seems to have fallen out of favor in Jacksonville. Although Ngakkoue is a beast, Malik Jackson's play has fallen off a cliff. We are not going to be able to afford Ion long term once Payne and Allen are up for extensions so we should try to get value for him now. I would let both Clinton-Dix and Smith leave to get comp picks. They will be overpaid for the type of performance they have brought to the table. It is worth noting that given so many teams have switched to a 3-4, it is cheaper to maintain a quality 4-3 defense. As you guys see above, 2 potential holes are a starting RDE and starting WLB. Fortunately, the supply for these roles really outpaces the demand so it is not going to be the hardest thing in the world to find cost effective solutions for both roles

    Now that this season is almost over, I see no reason why we should be playing Foster going forward. Start either SDH or Harvey-Clemons

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I realy hope Kyle Smith & co can convince Snyder (and Allen if he is still here) not to take someone in the 1st this year. If you are the Skins, you absolutely tyr your best to sign Bridgewater, although there is a lot of competition for him. If not him, get Fitzpatrick in here - at least it'll be fun to watch

    Jay Gruden on 3rd and short

    This is where it would help to have someone like a Darrel Young on the team. Everytime we run the I formation play with Anderson as the FB, we get a first down. Given the struggles on the line, I don't know why we don't use that formation more, even on earlier downs from greater distance.
  15. Ah. I had not realized they switched to a 4-3. We've seen what happens to players when you switch between a 3-4 and a 4-3 - Andre Carter being the most notable example.
