    Starting QB 2019???

    Yep, that was the one. It reeked of Bruce trying to make sure no one found out that Doug had no idea about the trade. Only, Doug told everyone. I cannot believe the list of QBs nobody wants, but takes anyways. Even trading away assets for them, when they should be paid to take that cap hit off some other teams back. We need to draft a QB if even in a later round and at least try and develop one. It's like Philly decided that we weren't going to have a developmental guy at all. We are literally too stupid to draft one.

    Preaching patience hmmm - that is the exact opposite of a year ago, having Smith secured before the season ended. I wonder if that is a shot at Bruce from Doug after last years trade... then again I wonder if Doug will even be in the QB Plan meeting room since he wasn't a year ago. Can our front office be anymore awkward. Heh there probably is no meeting room; it's just Bruce sitting in Dan's office watching you tube.

    I saw that we were 1 of 2 teams in the great Flacco sweepstakes. Getting older at the position > drafting a QB like a normal team

    Last years formula was going with aging vets at QB. Smith injury aside, nothing has changed and the same people are the deciders. Sure Alex out is a huge deal and I cannot just brush it aside, but following the same plan seems likely this far in Jay's tenure here. it all points to another vet QB coming in. The wildcard of course is Dan and Bruce getting desperate and feeling the need to make a splash in the draft. They can channel their inner GMSM all they want but in the end, Dan is going to want to be impulsive and Bruce knows it.

    Hey at least we didn't rush to acquire an old vet during the playoffs like we did last year, so there is that. Did Bruce even have time to do all of his off season homework before agreeing to that trade? He probably thought he was the smartest guy in the room, nabbing Smith when he did, while Reid laughed all the way through the Super Bowl. Heh had Bruce not rushed to trade for Smith, Folies may have been our QB instead after seeing his super bowl win. Bruce would have ponied up a few firsts for that one system fit.

    6 years! I think Baltimore should have paid to get rid of his contract. Otherwise, good point. Teams needs to play hard ball. I would love to see Philly get stuck with Foles. They will take on risk by tagging Foles and wish teams could cough collude and screw Philly.

    Rental... hmmm. Its too obvious. I am thinking we sign a high priced old vet, again. Probably Foles at a hefty price; it will be like Reid never left Philly. Exactly. Its kinda like Alex Smith needing to go to make room for Mahomes. Baltimore should have had to pay to get rid of Flak.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Maybe Hogan giving up is the medicine we had been hoping for. If Bruce can't get a deal done, he loses some of his worth. Maybe a lot. Activate All in on Murray Diversion Plan!

    The best thing is to tank this year (that is code for use McCoy and JJ/Hackenberg), and then take the best QB available in 20X2 to backup Alex Smith. All it requires is Dan and Bruce to realize a step back may provide an easy and logical step forward. They could swallow that pill knowing tickets sales will be fine since out of towners will buy up all the tickets. All aided by further shrinking of the stadium to get some sellouts. So finances will remain strong, and as long as Jay keeps praising McCoy, why do anything else but roll him going forward. Draft a top QB after our 4 win 2019, which creates the buzz around the team that neither Dan nor Bruce could ever provide beyond their wildest marketing gimmicks. From a cap perspective alone it has to be really dumb to ink yet another vet QB with Smith stuck on our books. I am not sure Bruce realizes that his chance of making the bowl will be severely impeded by our cap situation. @OVCChairman I agree Murray would be a horrible fit in Jay's slow play offense.
  10. I really hope that he has good hands and thus proves be an all down back. I think sadly time has proven we cannot jog out CT on every 3rd down / 2 min drill and expect him to survive all year. If he is really as good as we all hope, that is another reason to have him on the field as much as possible. Its tougher for the D for trotting out CT telegraphs pass. We could pass to our best playmaker on offense on first downs #mindblown I remember right after he was drafted, in Jay's first interview, he went out of his way to say that CT will still be his hands back. It just struck me as odd when we were talking about Guise who seemingly had fallen into our laps. The other GMs perhaps knew he had a gimpy knee.... Bruce was likely too ecstatic to check it out.

    We hear all the QB experts talking about how manning and brady work tirelessly on their mechanics and footwork... lost in all that is the benefit of having a QB that can sidearm it around a 6'6 Calais jumping up to bat balls all day long. Improvised throws.... seems extremely frowned upon and I am not 100% sure why. I am enamored with a QB that can throw a football 10 different ways. We even see Mahomes throwing left handed. Long time NFL QB purists heads must be exploding watching him. Yeah i am envious of KC and Mahomes. That all said a QB under 6 foot needs to be able to improvise throws sidearm etc, and since they are all mobile, they HAVE to be able to accurately throw on the run. A big fat no to Murray if he cannot do those things. Throwing over the shoulder over the top of the DL won't always work and you cannot let that kill your offense.
  12. Seems like much more than me! I defer to your expertise focusing in on them. I just watch them during replays more than anything else, and that is just at random times during the year. I thought Foster while not perfect, was serviceable in 2017. At least no one could beat him out, if not. I wonder if Zach is a better case study. I think consensus is that he did very well in 17. I do think he had some not so well documented injuries early in the year... going from memory. Foster and Foster fostered by Ryan should be interesting.
  13. I think I may be alone in thinking our ILBs are fine. It was how they were used. The same 2 players the year before, did fine. With Cousins at QB. With Smith, we slowed played on both sides of the ball. That is code for bend don't break, Another factor, we played our ILBs differently because we had a more stout DL. I have a little theory, many players on defense do great when allowed to be aggressive, instinctive, and attack. Those same players, forced to be passive, ignore instincts and their strengths, and read, sucky suck suck. What we ask our insides to do next year, should dictate if those 2 returning can excel enough to keep us fans happy. The key, just watch how slow they are to react, every damn play. it was hard to watch. And then folks wonder why they are late or take a bad angle.

    No one should trade for a FTagged Foles. Stick it and him to Philly!

    Let the Giants take Murray. He can take carries from Barkley. LOL Jones makes Eli look like the life of the party. Post of the day.
