    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I did, too, I was just looking at it from a league perspective. Crowder and Smith are unknowns out of their respective markets. Cousins is the only one with any national attention wherein someone comes drafted from us and then goes somewhere else when they could've been reasonably signed at some point while performing well enough to earn an extension. Again, this is neither an endorsement nor condemnation of Cousins, just an example that will resonate beyond the DMV and Minnesota. If Scherff doesn't get extended, though, FML. However, if you wanna get paid, then either come here or "leak" that we're in the running.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Not stirring any debate up, but no matter where your thoughts lie on Cousins, well, Cousins is the premier example.
  3. So what I'm reading is that he hasn't allowed any sacks or pressures at guard. I like it.

    I just imagine, "Hey, remember when you called their agent and signed them, and then called me? Yeah, let's reverse that next and all times. Kthxbye"

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    And we're back to square none. Couldn't hate Snyder more at this point. I was so happy and honestly a little proud of him for not getting involved the past few years, and then he not only KEEPS Allen, he jumps in too. Buddy, you're not in your mid-thirties anymore. No more excuses. Grow the eff up or write the damn sales proposal. Franchise ownership: YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG.

    Landon Collins and the #21 debate...

    That's what we've been doing, though. Only 33 is retired, but nobody wears 7, 9, 21, 28, 44, 81 and I'm sure I'm missing a couple. I don't see why they don't just retire them and be done with it.
  7. Right? I don't see how this is not just a top priority but THE priority. #twoqbswithbrokenlegs #mightwanttoprotectthoseguys

    I would certainly defer my opinion to that of the family, but who cares if he idolizes Sean? Plenty of other players do, but that has zero impact on how they play. Zero. My son loves the Paw Patrol. I'm not strapping a pup pack to him because he'd ****ing kill himself and he would be so into it that he'd tear Ryder's ACL. Just because you like someone and want to be just like someone doesn't make you that someone's peer. Even if I were cool with the number being worn, I'd want him to make a name and number for himself.

    I can understand him wanting to wear it. I still don't think he should. I still don't understand why some of you are arguing that he should wear it because he's got some reverence towards Sean. Why, and how, does that in any way mitigate or justify his wearing of the number? Would you do the same for 7, 9, 28, 33, 81? "I modeled my game after Sonny, so I should wear his number." That's just crazy to me.

    LOL yep, I was. People (I am in this group) annointed Campbell the next great because Gibbs traded up for him. Williams gave him his blessing. And Campbell sucked. Make a name for yourself and get your number to have the same prestige. Use your idols as inspirations to become an idol yourself. It's the same thing I tell my kids. Don't be next; be great.

    . . . is that question an attempt to double sarcasm me? Well done, sir. Well done. In all seriousness, the point is that just because someone likes a player doesn't mean they're anything close to that player. This is not a Landon Collins thing. I wanted him out of college mostly because of his feelings towards Sean. I just don't think that ANYONE should get a ring of Fame player's number just because he recognizes that the player was incredible. I think Nirvana is two levels shove any other band, and I own a guitar. Don't call me Kurt.

    Even in 2006, he was all over the field making the best of awful, awful plays by a WTF defense. Keep in mind that the Hand of God play (blocked field goal/field goal on untimed final play) was 2006, too. He was number two in the goddamn league first in the conference in interceptions while DEAD and missing two weeks. I mean, come on. Threads like this are really where you learn who to take seriously and who just wants to go against the grain to be "enlightened" in some sort of way. It's exhausting. I don't know, man. Jason Campbell took 17 and made Doug Williams look like trash in comparison. All 58 touchdowns each season were just insane. I'm so glad that we gave him the number as a vote of confidence. He seriously lived up to and surpassed all expectations. Plus liking a player means you're as good as that player. Being the top paid safety makes you the best hashtag arch deluxe. Yadda yadda yadda. Landon, make your own name for yourself. Don't be Sean Taylor 2.0 anymore than Sean Taylor was Ronnie Lott 2.0. You got this.

    You've been here since 2016. This discussion has been going on since November 28, 2007. Yes, we've been over this before ad nauseum, and here we go again.

    The revisionist history on Taylor is ridiculous. Go back to the archives and see what people were saying prior to his death. My tune never, ever changed. He isn't an idol to this generation or considered a generational player by the previous one because he was killed. Nobody said that about McNair, that all of a sudden he's handing Joe Montana his jock strap. Some of you guys think Sean was somehow posthumously awarded praise. The rest of us were paying attention.
  15. Huge loss. Neither of our tackles are 16-game players. We don't have a left guard or any other depth on the line. I thought he'd be a priority.
