    Starting QB 2019???

    I am not so sure on that price. They love him there and the current plan is to keep him another 12 months as a very cheap and very capable insurance policy and then next year tag and trade him when the likelihood is he would still get them at least the 2nd rounder they have already been offered. If anyone wants him this year the price is likely to be high and when all is said and done he is a good backup with upside, I am not sold on him as a long term starter.

    If they bring in Murray he is number 1 but Rosen is cheap and under team control for 3 more years and can still be developed a la Kirk Cousins in case Murray flames out. Why pay a veteran to be the backup unless you get a really good offer for Rosen? Someone suggested offering a 5th for him and that is just nonsense, no way would Arizona trade him for less than a 1st at this point even if Murray is on the roster.

    I see a lot of commentary about Murray to the Cards at number 1 but if that happens I don't think it is a slam dunk that they trade Rosen. It may be unconventional but with both QBs on rookie contracts it would be cheaper than Murray and a veteran and they would just be doubling their chances to find their franchise guy. I would at least think it would take a high 1st round pick to get Rosen in those circumstances, anything less would be malpractice by the Cards front office.

    Starting QB 2019???

    The scoop on RG3 is that both he and the Ravens want him back in Baltimore for next season. It makes a lot of sense in that he has a similar skillset to Jackson and so in the event of injury they won't need to change the gameplan and with Flacco gone he becomes the veteran mentor in the QB room. For us, I really don't hate the idea of Dalton as he is better than anyone available in Free Agency and has a relationship with Jay. We would be getting a proven starter and that would allow us to wait on drafting a QB as I still think this years crop is sub par and barring a franchise ruining trade into the top 5 we would be getting the 3rd or 4th best guy, the Kyle Boller of the group in all likelihood. I think Dalton is better suited to run Jay's offense than Alex was to be honest and with a decent draft you can still see us competing next year and for Jay and Bruce that has to be the priority.

    49ers letting Garcon walk. Could be a decent veteran presence to help the WR group, especially if we do end up with a rookie QB. Would not want to pay too much though after a couple of very down years in SF.

    Starting QB 2019???

    Keenum will probably be a Free Agent after this. He is $7 million in dead cap if cut as opposed to $18 million if they keep him and I can't see a trade as everyone knows Denver is not going to pay Flacco and Keenum and so the cut is coming. I am not sure about Keenum here, he had 1 good year sandwiched by a few awful ones but he is the type of QB who could work well in Jay's system and could be an affordable bridge for 1 year if we prefer to wait on 2020 to see where Alex is at and/or take a shot at what is meant to be a stronger QB class in the draft.

    Reading the details I don't see Antonio Brown actually getting out of Pitt at all. He has 3 years left on his deal and if they trade him they are still stuck with a dead cap hit of around $20 million. I am not letting my best offensive player leave and kissing goodbye to all of that cap space unless you really blow me away with an offer, likely multiple 1st round picks to offset the cap damage. Who is going to give up that kind of haul for a soon to be 31 year old player?

    Spurrier comment

    I think it was more of an accomplishment because he was totally out of his depth in professional football rather than because he won with the Redskins.
  9. I know this is an unpopular view but Jay's offense is very good by any measure and I know @kingdaddy is not alone in disagreeing with me on this but his scheme has been very productive both with the Bengals and the Redskins. When Bruce screwed Jay by letting both DJax and Garcon walk the team still produced and for those with short memories still managed to beat the messiahs Rams team. Now for what it's worth I don't like Jay calling plays as a HC. He is a good OC and fine in that role but as a playcalling HC he is doing two jobs averagely at best instead of one job well. I do hope he hands over the reins sooner rather than later and there is precedent for that. McVay was made OC in Jay's first season but did not call the plays however he showed enough that Jay handed over the responsibility in his second season. I am hoping for a similar outcome here but hopefully O' Connell can persuade him a lot sooner, maybe by the end of training camp.
  10. Pretty sure if we hired McVay back as HC with Josh McDaniels as OC and Vic Fangio as DC the majority of posters would be slamming the hire. I am still concerned about what kind of roster we will have for next season but I feel very good about the coaching moves that have been made.
  11. You would be an upgrade over Gray, his unit was crap and constantly out of position. Horton as a DC does not have great numbers although he was mostly on lousy teams after Arizona but dig deeper and the secondary consistently outperformed the rest of the unit. Go back to his days coaching the secondary in Pittsburgh and frankly the results speak for themselves. It's possible that as a DC he was promoted one step too far but as far as coaching the secondary goes he has a deserved rep as one of the best in the business.

    Starting QB 2019???

    Agree with this mostly although I would add another veteran like Fitzmagic to compete with Colt and then carry 4 QBs through training camp letting Colt battle with the rookie and the new vet. JJ could stay for all of camp and be a cut when we go to 53, nobody is going to claim him but we would have 3 guys on the roster and someone on the street who had a full training camp with us and could be brought back cheap if the injury bug bites again.
  13. Whilst I am 100% in favor of Jay handing play calling duties back to an assistant I do think the run-pass-pass thing is less to do with his intended play calling than it is to do with the crazy number of penalties on 1st down which leave us in long yardage situations for 2nd and 3rd down. Cleaning up the penalties, or the league improving the officials, would probably help a lot here. Horton is a great hire. Very experienced coach and can definitely take some of the load off Manusky and has the experience and resume to command respect from the locker room, I think he is a clear upgrade so I am happy with the move. I too agree about Jay being a good offensive schemer as opposed to play caller although some of that is just the challenge of wearing two hats. Brian Billick always says that other than drafting Kyle Boller his biggest mistake in Baltimore was calling the plays in his final season and doing two jobs adequately instead of one job well. Jay's scheme worked in Cincinatti and worked when McVay called it here but has struggled when Jay has called the plays himself.
