    Landon Collins and the #21 debate...

    Trent Williams says hi, the overrating of Sean needs to stop. His final year was his only special year where he showed more than just flashes and was actually finally becoming a great player.

    I would see if Dan Snyder is hiring a security detail to watch that Jersey number, you'd be the guy for the job. I guess now I dont care about death, which is odd because we're talking about a Jersey #. I care that he died, I dont care if someone wears 21. Its that simple
  3. This is a team built around short sighted roster moves, we've never been far away enough to give us the chance of being close. We had a few horrible years but our picks went to another team lol. This free agency has been okay, definitely not putting us anywhere near close imo.

    You act like if someone wears his number they are spitting on his grave. Guess what, Miami still issues out #26. I will tell you, Sean Taylor was on a different stratosphere compared to everyone else in college. He was much better in college than he was in the nfl and yet they didnt retire his number, for good reason. You dont retire a number due to a tragedy, you retire it for their accomplishments. Every good, or high potential safety that walks into our lockeroom will be compared to or will compare themselves to ST because of fans and this stupid organization that cant turn the page fully. I'm extremely tired of players getting compared to him too, because hes on a pedestal that Ronnie Lott in his prime couldnt reach currently. "Yeah Ronnie is great, but Sean was THE perfect blend of size, speed and ability... he could have been even better." I guarantee you would see posts like that

    Yeah it would have been extremely smart to deal him for that haul, if we had a true GM, that deal would have been made without much of an afterthought. The best GMs deal right before the inevitable decline and get future value for their players. Tackles definitely have immense value and rightfully so, glad we didnt overpay some scrub like other teams are doing. For Tim's size he is definitely pretty explosive, and once he gets to stop speed good luck slowing him down. I dont get the alpha thing. Sean Taylor's personality wouldnt have been alpha, he was quiet and kept to himself, yet he was a good player. I think that's just people talking out of the wrong hole
  6. You have to overpay to get people to play for the Skins. That is our curse. I view Scherff as a good Guard, better than solid but not great. Hes asking for cornerstone money it appears, once Trents gone Scherff would have our cornerstone contract on the OL most likely. Is he good enough to warrant that? He probably doesnt get much better than he is now, he was already a near finished product coming out. The team probably needs to figure a way to get a friendlier contract signed with good incentives for Scherff. So glad this isnt my job
  7. I think this is partially because we havent drafted enough OL and have more veteran backups on our team than most do. Just a possible reason, I literally have no facts to even back this up so dont judge me.

    We are okay at CB if Dunny is back in form, but if Greedy falls to us we need to Gandalf it. "You shall not pass!" I'm a big stat guy, is there a reason why Bush didnt really produce good tackle numbers but is being projected to go so high? Tackling is literally the positions key primary job, so it's a bit alarming.

    I cant get by the fact that you said Oakland offered this years first + for Trent. That actually happened AND we turned it down? Derwin is special, but hes a safety too, not as highly rated position as a DL to me at least. We got offered a 1st + for Trent and turned it down? That will stick with me. I love Timmy too, hoping he doesnt slim down too much in the offseason though.

    I like the idea of building the OL in this draft with strong run blockers, whoever they may be. We dont have our QBOTF yet, but we do have Guice and Peterson. For now maybe it keeps our offense afloat and not bottom feeders this season. I also like the idea of making our defense absolutely filthy by adding some more premium talent there with our first few picks as a second option.

    Lets give it a few years, I think Payne and Derwin end up being a wash in the end. Payne impressed the hell out of me last year for a young rookie. We dont know if anyone at 15 will be as good as Payne, its pretty doubtful.

    I'd be happy with him in round 2 probably. 15 is our luxury pick, I'm not a fan of "potential" guys that high. Production is extremely important and if you didnt really produce good numbers at the college level like Daniel Jones, that's a red flag. Then you have to start looking into the reasoning as to why
  13. Oh well, someone has to be blamed for the horrible second half of the season. Rofl Dix seems like a good scapegoat to me!
