  1. It's the perfect moment for a middle-tier team to make a move for Wilson. His value is currently at its nadir, and his next team will likely secure him at a lower cost, setting the stage for potential gains beyond expectations. If his mindset is in the right place and seems to be imbued with a greater sense of gratitude. However, obviously no way Washington should do it! 4.6 40 is an average athlete in the NFL. Everything Maye does, 80% of the starters can and will do in the NFL from a play and run extension. Not saying he won’t prove to be elite at backyard football or become the smartest QB in the league, but not too excited about the prospects of him outwitting the 5-10 year veterans within his rookie contract. Freaks don't need the amalgamation of two seasons to showcase their prowess. I unapologetically embrace my bias towards exceptional talents and find it disconcerting when a quarterback of average athleticism grapples with accuracy issues of any kind being drafted in the top 5. I appreciate his versatility of being a multi-sport athlete and excelling in backyard football though.
  2. Elite dual-threat quarterbacks often make an immediate impact, showcasing their ground skills from the first game of their rookie contract. While this is a significant advantage, the downside lies in the increased risk of injuries. Game 1, Daniels appears poised to match the impact of quarterbacks ranked 8-25. However, Drake Maye's progress depends on mastering the playbook and outsmarting quarterbacks like Kirk Cousins before stepping into competition with the elite. In contrast, Jalen Hurts faced challenges with pocket passing, throws outside the hashes, and reading the field. Despite these difficulties, he still competed, and his running prowess played a significant role in outperforming Patrick Mahomes in the Super Bowl. I'm not dismissing Drake Maye, but from my layman perspective, he doesn't seem to offer an immediate advantage on day one. The key for him lies in becoming the smartest and fastest at reading the field, which, while interesting and can happen, doesn't inspire much confidence in my view. Physical Freaks! This is the way!
  3. This FO was a part of trading assets and rewarding a RB with the biggest contract in history for a RB. Not at all saying it should happen, but the RB market has great value these days.
  4. While not overly optimistic, I don't dismiss the idea of investing in an elite, game-changing RB during the ages of 27 and 28. Hoping the analytics team explores emerging arbitrage opportunities, perhaps in the veteran RB market. Conforming to cliché analytics leads to falling behind; let's embrace innovation, take calculated risks, and stay ahead of the curve – akin to Shen's recent comments relating to the TE position. A little thunder and lightning - 70/30 split/situational. Not a strict either-or situation, but I'm a sucker for elite talent. If the team secures an elite RB for $25 million guaranteed over 2 years in his upcoming 27 and 28 year old seasons, count me intrigued. You don’t have to sign these dudes to 4-5 year contracts. I'm not insisting it should happen, but acquiring elite talent for 4% of the cap could offer substantial ROI, compared to spending the same amount on an average O-lineman, CB, or edge player – not the most appealing option.
  5. Investing in an elite RB presents a prime financial opportunity in today's NFL landscape. Chances are, there won't be a need to venture into a third year of guaranteed funds. Not saying it should be some sort of slam dunk, but the potential ROI for the cost is intriguing, especially coupled with a rookie QB.
  6. Always prioritize evaluating freak talents, especially when your team lacks one in a specific position. Saquon Barkley stands out as such a talent. Limit Barkley to two years guaranteed (overpay for those two years), ensuring strong support for your rookie QB with an elite RB. Barkley was Christian Mccafrey to Daniel Jones two seasons ago.
  7. Standig and Sheehan is my favorite listen on radio these days. The astonishing part is, despite thorough background research from grade school to college, evaluations can still go wrong. Teams should, however, be adept at identifying individuals with a solid work ethic and are a good person. Yet, whether the affable hard worker can make split-second decisions, handle QB pressures, and become obsessive about the process in adulthood is a different narrative. That's why I often favor elite dual-threat players; they offer an immediate high floor, unrelated to reading the field or being an elite student of the game. All made SBs within their rookie contracts: Jalen Hurts Cam Newton Wilson Kaepernick
  8. Curious about a scout's analysis: remarkable pocket movement, yet it seems Mayes stuck to his initial read, which fortunately resulted in a beautiful play as the wide receiver found open space. Is there more value in pocket manipulation with multiple reads, or does that receive different credit? Not coming at this sideways, intrigued to learn more if anyone has any scouting background. Listening in, it sounded like a bunch of cliché answers, with the coach avoiding anything negative. While he does come off as quite shy and introverted, as you somewhat pointed out, there's a noticeable surge of energy and joy when he's on the field. On a side note, but relevant to leadership through play: I appreciate elite dual-threat ability for its unique capacity to capture momentum and energy in games via low-risk, high-reward actions such as running the football to gain yards.
  9. Feeling perplexed; while following this thread, there appears to be similar, if not slightly more, support for Maye compared to Daniel's, yet the tone from some suggests otherwise. The seasoned individuals here seem to lean towards Maye. My assumption is that supporters for Daniels are 20 years younger or so than those for Maye lol 😂 For scorekeeping purposes, I qualify as an old head these days. lol
  10. Imagine supporting a family as a slide coach is fantastic and increasingly essential, especially with the growing trend of quarterbacks relying on backyard football skills, agility and running. Disappointed that Jayden Daniels lacks a baseball history for sliding and exploring unique arm angles. I appreciate the concept of having an elite dual-threat player who can both navigate the field effectively (being taller) and maintain a smooth delivery. Typically, elite dual-threat athletes are smaller and struggle with inconsistent throwing motions, hindering their ability to establish early rhythm in an offense with their arms.
  11. Injuries are part of the game. In the same draft class, we witnessed Andrew Luck retiring before RG3. I'm not suggesting that dual-threat QBs aren't more susceptible to missing playing time, but it's uncommon for their careers to be abruptly shortened by injuries. On the flip side, we could witness quarterbacks usually considered safer from an injury standpoint diminishing due to running more. There's an expectation for all quarterbacks to be able to create, extend, and scramble for yards when necessary. The baseline for running expectations set by franchises is on the rise. Newton completed 11 seasons in the NFL. In his 10th season with the Patriots, his running ability remained at an elite level. Unfortunately, his throwing power was significantly affected when his AC joint on his throwing shoulder got injured while attempting a tackle. His legs remained elite to the end. You are too easily annoyed my man. Most QBs are injured. Tough sport. Are you saying he was injured and that’s why he couldn’t run? I don’t think that’s what you mean, but just checking. I concur that such a scenario seems improbable. Personally, I'm content with an 8-year run, given it yields a 60-70% win percentage, chances for deep playoff runs, and perhaps a fortunate journey to the championship game. If there are signs of decline after the second contract, then start exploring other options. The notion of playing a 15-20-year game with a QB is somewhat fantastical; it does happen, but typically only for Hall of Fame quarterbacks (not attaching this to you by any means). If that's the argument, then yes, I strongly lean towards Drake Maye over Daniels. 100% Maye is more likely to start for a franchise in years 13-20 than Danies. I appreciate having a player's superpower with a high likelihood of impacting games at a high level, especially early in their rookie contract. Daniel’s projects to impact the teams run game at an elite level, elevating his RBs and Oline day 1 upon his arrival. I get this, but I like probabilities of the Washington QB have a physical advantage over the pool of mediocre QBs that represent 70% of starters and over the great to elite guys Washington will play in the playoffs. Relying on Drake Maye to become a better QB mentally than the dudes in the league seems like a lower probability. Take Jalen Hurts, for instance. While he may not excel in traditional pocket QB skills, he held his own against Mahomes in the Super Bowl, with many believing he outplayed Mahomes. His impact came significantly from his running ability, something Mahomes can't quite match in the same way. While I generally lean towards quarterback "freaks," I'm perfectly fine if they end up with Maye. The discussion has shifted from, and at least around here, there's no debate about the need for a QB who can create and extend – Maye can certainly do that.
  12. Is there a source or individual compiling data on the number of anticipation throws attempted and completed by each quarterback? Also, are there widely accepted criteria to determine what qualifies as an anticipated throw?
  13. Can you provide examples of elite dual-threat individuals with notably brief careers? Additionally, how do you define a "very short" career in your perspective? Truly interested to hear your thoughts, especially when your other team has an elite dual threat guy playing on a second contract.
  14. Ignoring injuries, do you lean towards Daniels over Maye? Absolutely hate Daniels wasnt a former baseball player, off platform throws and baseball slides are below average for him. Admire his consistent throwing motion and am hopeful he measures close to or at 6'4. Love the concept of having an elite dual-threat player who can excel at checking down without being prone to batted balls and similar issues.
