    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Ugh another month of trade-down rumors “heating up”... the draft can’t come soon enough. You take chase, you don’t look back, you don’t regret it for a second. This team needs a blue chipper. The trade would have to be borderline RG3 compensation for me to think about it and I don’t think there’s a team desperate enough to put all that on the line for a guy coming off of a brutal injury.

    If we really can’t fetch more than a 3rd for TW then I’d be all about a player for player trade. Other teams may be able to digest TWs contract demands better if we give them relief by taking someone from them. I’d much prefer a solid, proven, even overpaid player in return vs a crapshoot 3rd rounder. that being said, if HOU is involved then I’m a bit more optimistic about trade return value...
  3. I haven’t been this torn about a FA period in a long time. Usually we come out with some nice names added and I get a beautiful sense of that offseason false optimism... and then wed go on to have a less than stellar season. So maybe now that I’m not getting that sense it means we’ll be awesome? I’m no scientist but that Reasoning definitely checks out. in all seriousness, on paper, we went from average to average across the board. Maybe a slight upgrade at ILB and TE, maybe? I think our secondary got worse; Davis is absolute garbage. I do however appreciate the addition by subtraction of Dunbar and Norman, malcontents and underperformers can see the door. at this point I don’t really see anyone out there on my wish list so I’ll assume the reports are accurate and were essentially done. I’d like Logan but i don’t see it happening. The only thing left is LT... get TW the **** out of here and bring penn back, if nothing else. On the bright side, at least we’re not JAX! I can’t say I’m surprised, on paper it seems pretty accurate.

    difference is TW could have played and had no injury... the helmet thing was laughable.
  5. The quantity methods Just brings me back to the McGee/McClain signing days. We have loads of depth players, but are severely lacking playmakers. sean Davis has failed at this level, so I don’t think he was worth even looking at. Davis and Pierre-Louis Im okay with. Like I mentioned yesterday, my bears fan buddies loved him and think he is starter quality. three ehh players signed to one-year deals just isn’t the ideal start of FA.
  6. Cant say this one gets me too pumped. Quality not quantity please. Davis, smith, Pierre-louis add to depth but offer little improvement... i trust Ron but can’t say I’m enjoying the start of his first FA here.
  7. He’s a troll, not a fan. just talked to my bears fans buddies and they are bummed to see the French ILB leave. They said he played really well when both of the bears LBs went down and at that price he’s a huge bargain. Sooo we’re chalk full of depth if nothing else. If Foster were sure to be back then this would be a bit of a head scratcher, but I like the potential and look forward to a good position battle. I trust that del rio will bring the best out of this bunch. enough with the homer offseason optimism, lets make a damn splash.
  8. Cheating or not, Brady will gown as the goat. He can’t tarnish those rings with his post-patriots career, but this is a big mistake on his part. That system was tailor-made for an aging, intelligent qb; he always had great protection and multiple dumpoff options. He will not improve whichever team he ends up with. anywho, welcome back Kendall. I hope u can regain your old redskin form. with all of these trades, I’d really like to get in line to ship out TW and Dunbar... they’re just a cloud hanging over this team
  9. Would be a huge fan if we could make this happen. I like him better than any other FA TE and should be at a discount because he had xfl Caliber qbs last year.

    This was always about money hombre... it’s just now becoming obvious to some that he was bull****ting his reason for holding out. What’s wrong is that’s $13m of wasted cap space because there’s no way he’s playing here; we already have enough invested in Alex Smith. He’ll again sit out and Hit the market after the season. It’s a bad business/monetary decision for him, but it was also last year and it’s obvious he’s still living in Lala land now hearing his contract demands. I’m wondering what you think can happen that would result in his value rising? I don’t see any scenario...

    I guess that’s my issue with your take. He never owned anything. He used the misdiagnosis as his reason for holding out, but that simply isn’t true. He wanted more money and used this as his excuse. What makes it even worse is that he went as far as to say his holdout was to also protect teammates yet it was widely reported that BA would fire anyone on the training staff for him, but he turned down that offer. What kind of sense does that make? he was made aware of the misdiagnosis 6 months before declaring the holdout, but decided to wait until right after FA and the draft. He did this to tie our hands in an effort to get more money. The motivation was strictly for financial gains. I don’t mean to pile on, but you seem to be giving him a pass and I just don’t understand.

    I guess we can say we agree because both TW and BA acted like POSs... the thing is that BA got canned and TW is still on the team acting like a POS. Again he has gone public with demands and put the team in a bad position. He’s essentially saying either you pay me a lot, more than I deserve, or youll have to get fleeced in a trade. When you said you only see him taking care of himself, I agree if you’re only referring to the financial side. If you’re referring to his health and somehow still not seeing that this injury dog and pony show is a farse then I understand why we won’t agree.

    amen to your first point. That truly is the silver lining in this mess. your $15m/yr number is low compared to what I’ve heard. It came out the other day that he’s demanding $18-20M. I also saw a $30m number on here but don’t know of the source. Given his injury proneness and regression in play I wouldn’t touch any of the numbers. He should be grateful that the team would even consider taking him back after his childish antics last year, but no, instead he continues to take the dbag route.

    I understand that view, I just think there’s a slim chance. If he knew what was good for him, he’d do as u say. but look at what he did last year. If he indeed did had family money issues then he should have sacked up, admitted his health complaint was a lie, and got back on the field. I’ll admit, I was getting ready to forgive him and understood his beef may have been with BA, but now we hear what his salary demands are. I mean come on, the guy is a selfish prick, he’s clearly still in a ****ty mindset and don’t see any way he’s be content to play on his current salary.

    At this point it’s the principal. He played the victim card and seemed to have convinced quite a few people that his holdout was not only in response to his “misdiagnosis” but was also to protect teammates. He absolutely screwed over the team and it was all based on money. If he’s on the team this year he’s getting the haynesworth treatment from me. sorry for the rant. Why wait another year, especially a likely drama and injury-filled year, to only get essentially a 4th rd pick when u can get a 2nd now? And then the idea of tagging him after, oof that would start wwIII. He’s setting a poor precedent to his teammates, especially if the team caves and pays. He knew we needed him bad last year yet chose to flip us the bird. I’m glad he’s getting screwed as bad as he screwed us. Sorry for mini rant.

    Many of us read the tea leaves correctly and knew this whole thing was about money. From the timing of the holdout announcement to him ignoring tBA’s offer to fire whoever he wanted on the medical staff, this was crystal clear. Now it’s confirmed, ship him out, this is exactly the nonsense this team doesn’t need. This was about as cowardly a route that TW could have taken, he’s no leader and certainly doesn’t deserve to wear a C on his chest.

    Who should be the next GM?

    Man I’m just so happy that this thread topic is no longer a dream

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    This talk is kind of blowing my mind. Chase is hands down the best prospect in this draft class and 30 other teams (not the bengals, they need burrows) are in envy of our good fortune. I live in ny now and my giants fan buddies couldn’t be angrier at how the end of the season played out. The fact that they not only blew their chance at chase, but that they will now likely see him twice a year in b&g tears them up. we have enough average talent on this team, we’ve been dying for a game changer type. It is very possible, if not probable, that chase singlehandedly brings this D up a notch. The hypothetical that we trade back for a bounty of picks and still land okudah is extremely far fetched. Okudah is top 3-5, we’re not getting a haul to trade back a few picks... unless Bruce Allen winds up with the lions. Even then I’d be very hard pressed to pass up a guy of chase’s caliber.
  19. Not trying to be a dick, but we knew this would be the case once gruden was fired. New HC = not hard knocks eligible.
  20. At this point, idc what we do with TW, but he just can’t sit out another year. Come to an agreement and play or ship him out for hopefully a 2nd rounder. i laugh at the browns for their stockpiling of playmakers while disregarding their OL, but i fear we may be only a year away from that. TW could be gone, penn is old, Moses is avg-at-best, and scherff could walk. Its not an unrealistic hypothetical. Not to go off on a tangent, I know many hold scherff in high regard, but in my eyes he’s not worth #1 G money. Fortunately at this time, we don’t have many glaring holes. TE and maybe CB are the only ones that jump out. We have to be locked into chase with the #2 pick so hopefully we find some OL gold in the mid-rounds.
  21. Thanks fellas. Down the stretch we played against some terrible defenses, but I hear what you’re saying and can get on board. Regardless of the competition, I’m glad Haskins is going into the offseason on a personal high note, has to be good for the psyche.
  22. I’ll admit, I didn’t watch many of the games down the stretch, but in the games I did watch, I wasn’t overly impressed, or at all impressed with our offensive playcalling. I assume we worked off of grudens vanilla playbook, so that certainly didn’t help, but my question is why is everyone so head over heals with KOC? Is there something that I’m completely missing? All that I see is gruden 2.0. When gruden allowed mcvay to start working in his scheme, we saw some originality, but I haven’t seen anything with KOC. Hearing that he may be staying is actually one of the very few reasons that I don’t feel optimism.
  23. I’m in utter shock. We landed an actual coach, I was sure that we’d have to dumpster dive and that was a big reason why I didn’t hate gruden. For those who don’t love this hire I’m wondering who you would have preferred? River was one of, if not the top coach candidates out there. Between this news, Bruce getting canned, training staff getting cleaned up, and solidifying the #2 pick, I have a true feeling of optimism for the future. Certainly wasn’t a feeling I had just over a week ago and not one I expected to have for quite some time.
