That’s exactly what I was thinking. I’m sure he’s taking credit for Lamar now?
I said we should draft Lamar at the time and was literally laughed out of the thread.
I wonder how many Daron Paynes it would take to get him now?
Then again Gruden and Co would have ruined him lol...
Translation: We thought if Lance slipped a little we might consider trading up for him but once he was gone at 3, we said eh, we'll stick where we are and see if the other two fall to 19.
I guess I'm OK with that, I didn't love any of the three (behind the top 2) so much that I thought we should trade up for them.
I was wrong on Lamar like every team in the 1st round
Now Kuz and Sammy bench for Disciplinary issues
Am I the only one somewhat incredulous on Lance being picked as high as he was?
I mean, I get that the guy has skill. But when the toughest team he faced in college was James Madison, I just don't get him as a first rounder, much less #3.
Nope, I thought it was a massive leap of faith also... He played 1 game last year, 13 games total in his career or something nuts.... But Shanny traded a kings ransom as if he was a sure thing.
Yeah, I totally forgot about the 1 game thing too.
I'd a been furious if WFT had done that.
he blew people away in the interviews….
Yes from what I read he knows football, can read defenses stuff like that. High football IQ and his athletic ability and potential. He was thought of highly by a lot of teams.
RGIII blew people away in the interviews too. So did Ryan Leaf for that matter.
So I'm looking at the free agents for 2022 and the quarterback selection is awful. And describing it as awful is being quite kind. They're going to have to draft a quarterback next year. So, hopefully they have a chance at one of Kedon Slovis, Carson Strong or JT Daniels. I doubt that they have a chance at Sam Howell or Spencer Rattler. They'll need to completely tank and the team is good enough that there should be no reason why they tank, unless Fitzpatrick really shows his age, Heinicke proves that he's just a one game wonder and even after his fourth year, Kyle Allen still can't grasp the offense or make deep throws because of his weak arm.
it’s brutal…They’re not even in the ballpark to get lucky with a draftee yet….because we don’t have shit!
It’s the journeyman cycle for the next few years at a minimum IMO, unless they make a big trade.
ZERO chance they’re tanking with that D…..they’re going to try and win with a hope and a prayer behind center for the foreseeable future. It was this past year or nothing for the tank.
I know Fitz will be fun for a year, then what?
Wut...? Didn't he make a 50 yard pass to Terry off of one foot against the cowgirls?
This is why you build the team first, then add the QB. Get all the cheaper pieces in place via draft etc and then you don't need so much youth, so you can trade a haul of draft picks to move up and get your guy. They ALMOST tried it this year. If they're too far down the list next draft they'll surely trade up.
That only works for a handful of years before guys start aging off rookie deals and you’re just spinning your wheels.
if they don’t get a good QB or good potential QB next year, they’re burning the roster for mediocrity IMO.
