  1. What would people think of any of us if there was a camera feed on the most stressful moment of our lives? This speculation regarding him not wanting to play here is completely baseless and coming from a no-audio feed of his facial reactions to a pressure cooker of stress.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    The point is more than a little moot now, but just looking at 2018, he beat one team with a winning record in which he did not throw at least 1 pick. He had dropped INTs multiple times last season as well, and fumbled the ball 6 times (although I think he only lost 2). In some games where he had no turnovers, he was also wildly ineffective. I was at the Carolina game and some of that game had heavy rain but plenty of it was in the sunshine and he got outplayed by a career backup with no starts. He had 4 games last season with a completion percentage in the mid 50s or below, two in the 40s. The guy almost invariably disappears in big games and makes boneheaded decisions like he's paid for it (case in point, some of those turnovers that were dropped and his atrocious completion percentage against good defenses). That's what I mean when I say he's turnover prone. An NFL team will pick him off twice as often as he was in the college game.

    2019 NFL Draft discussion thread

    I’ve watched multiple film analysis segments from various folks on him and all seem to agree he’s a great fit for a WCO and that his short and intermediate accuracy is elite, among the best for recent draft prospects, and that his downfield game is the area in which he needs the most work (though it still flashes greatness at times). I’ve also seen several segments that indicate that possibly his greatest asset as a QB are his pre-snap reads, defensive scheme recognition, and knowledge of the game. I know you’ve said nothing of the latter, but what are people reading to make them think this kind of stuff? I don’t see a single thing in his game that isn’t coachable and I see plenty of things that make him the anti-RG3 (knowledge of defensive schemes, pre-snap reads, etc.)

    I ask this because you seem to be a Vols fan. I'm a Game****. I cannot understand the love for Lock. He is GOD AWFUL against every halfway decent team that isn't Georgia. Turnover prone, anti-clutch, completely loses defenders, misses open guys. Consistently, across his entire career. Look at his statistical breakdown. Did he just show out against UT over the years and I missed it?

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Giants

    I'm a lifelong Game****s fan and I can tell you that DJ was the heart and soul of our defensive identity. When he left, the play of everyone around him went down, even some of the same players, because he wasn't there to motivate and inspire. His attitude is infectious. He sets the tone, and we would do well to lock him up for years to come. Edit: Thanks, chat filter. So proud to be a Game****s alum right now. Gonna update my resume.

    He looks so much like Eddie Murphy to me in this thumbnail

    Further, if we cut Stacy McGee that number grows by 2.5m. Mason Foster would save us 2m. Scherff, according to the overthecap.com calculator, is owed 12.5m next year so extending him could save us some scratch (for comparison, Moses, who has been extended already, costs us 6.9m against the cap in 2019). Kerrigan signed a 5 year extension 3 years ago and may also be a candidate for a contract rework, costing us 10.5m against the cap next year. I feel like the numbers are workable, but I'd hate to see us develop some defensive cohesion and then let it slip away just for a half season. If HaHa is the player he can be based on potential across the back half of this season, I'd rather have him than Crowder or Smith or Lauvao, but that's just me. Edit: We could also restructure and convert some of Alex Smith's bonus for next year which would free up 10m. Not sure if that's smart or even possible, but with Schaeffer in the booth I kind of feel like we can find the money we need. I guess my question is does anyone know if that's in the cards or not, i.e. are they going into this determined to let him walk or are they going to consider extending him?

    What's with the sentiment that he won't be here for more than these 8 games? I know the compensatory pick formula and all that, but it seems like a 25 year old former 1st round FS, if he plays well, should definitely be a target for us, and he seems to already have chemistry with DJ and hopefully with the Bama grads on the team as well. I think we have around 17m in cap room as of right now for next year, is there any reason we wouldn't try to extend him?

    Lets keep laughing at the Browns, while we can

    True enough. If I was Kirk though I wouldn’t sign any kind of tag if going to the Browns was a part of the deal. Think I’d just take a sabbatical year and count my 45m hahaha

    Do we know if this is basically just an exclusive rights deal on his scouting service or is he a full blown employee? Any terms of the deal? Just curious what they do with him. Also is he still being paid by us or is that being determined by the grievance settlement?

    They JUST fired a non-football guy that ran their operations, did they not?
