  1. If getting Rodgers for just money is an option I’d be for that all day. Same if Wilson is released which is unlikely. If not I’d deal with Houston for Watson and part with one of the first round picks. Getting a player of his caliber for a pick is phenomenal. After that deal Hurts for a conditional 3-4-5 or keep him.
  2. If he’s cleared I’ll take him in a heartbeat and just skip reading or listening people’s takes for a bit lol
  3. Oh it’s definitely possible it could be an organizational philosophy. Every coach (besides maybe Chip) was a pass first coach. The same issues used to be there with Reid too……but it’s all good now that he has a QB so idk. I can see both sides
  4. Im not there, yet. Hurts has receivers open a lot and it’s not asking a lot to have an NFL QB make some of these throws. For all we know he hits them all in practice and that’s what leads to the calls in game. Even with that said, his approach has been odd to me. I fully expected Sanders to average 20 touches per game this year.
  5. Typically accuracy isn’t something that improves at this level. Of course there’s guys like Allen who get better but it’s rare. The biggest concern I have is the unwillingness to stay in the pocket and go through reads. I can’t think of any QB who started off as poor as he’s been and made it to even an average level. When you watch any good QB, from the beginning, they stand tall in the pocket, go through reads and will take a hit and/or make a good throw. I don’t think he can escape his natural reaction to look for one guy and run. When he said “you don’t see what I see” I think that was telling. He feels pressure that isn’t there and rolls (usually right) immediately. He hold the ball long because he doesn’t see that the WR is open at this level and is usually seconds late or running out of the pocket. I have concerns that the “tiger can’t change his stripes” with him.
  6. I don’t know if it’s speed or not. His college coach and now 2 NFL coaches have given him designed one-read offenses. They see or know he can’t go through progressions. His All-22 from this last week highlights the issues he continues to have and I don’t think any amount of time fixes it. His flaws are normally ones that are not improved on at this level or it’s rare. His arm issues aren’t overplayed either, they’re legit for sure.
  7. The second that deal is made and there’s news of him potentially starting, Goodell will put at end to it. There’s no way he can play with all his cases still open.
  8. Asked about vacating the pocket too soon, Jalen Hurts says he needs to stay in and “make the throws,” but he also says “no one sees what I see out there.”
  9. I agree and hope that’s the direction we take. I also want 3 stud defenders and I don’t really care which positions outside of LBer. Get the best one of those and add a stud one in FA
  10. You want to know how Philly luck works? We hype up all these early picks only for us to keep Howie, pick the guy who wasn’t the consensus top guy and than trade the other early one
  11. I’ve posted that since we got him and it’s held true the entire time He’s not selfish. He’s just very limited in what he can do and how he sees the field. Doug used him the exact same way last year.
  12. Why stop there? If guys are close to an incentive that gets them extra money, just bench them and save the cash! The optics and backlash from the league and other owners would be bad. Teams don’t do things like this with ANY picks. It’s in the teams best interest to get a good QB and despite their record, if he’s playing well that’s what they want. They won’t want to let a good QB go to try and get another good QB. They can literally look at us as a reason why not to do that lol
  13. If Carson is still playing well and they’re losing they’re not benching him unless he gets hurt. Him playing well is why they wanted him and what they want.
  14. And I know it’s poor timing because we are in kill Gannon mode but this is pretty good and should reflect positively on him. In a Swartz scheme one of these guys is giving up a 10-150-2 game. “Darius Slay, Steve Nelson, and Avonte Maddox against the Buccaneers receivers (per @PFF). Slay -- 7 targets, 5 catches, 45 yards Nelson -- 6 targets, 4 catches, 38 yards Maddox -- 4 targets, 4 catches, 10 yards No TD allowed.” I believe if the DL plays better we would have been in that game. That’s a unit that can’t afford to not show up and have us remain competitive
  15. Im usually a “go get the QB first and other things later” guy but I’m on board with this now. Snag another QB in the 2nd if you want but the first 3 need to be starting from day 1.
  16. 2022 draft picks: 1st round - 3 (PHI, MIA, IND) 2nd round - 1 3rd round - 1 4th round - 1 5th round - 3 (PHI, WFT, ARI) 6th round - 1 7th round - 0 10 total picks and plenty of cap space to load the roster up
  17. It’s a win-win. I’m happy for Ertz. It would suck watching his last few years stuck on a rebuilding team.
  18. It just makes too much sense to deal him. Hopefully the player that came back to us can turn into someone who can contribute either in special-teams or as depth.
  19. Given his reaction at the end of the game I think he knew. Since we played Thursday and were without Goedert we probably needed him and couldn’t make it official until after the game.
  20. Biggest issue with Hurts outside of coaches not using his skill set properly are his intangibles. He lacks so many key ones it seems which will keep him in that 20-25’ish range of good QB’s. He doesn’t have the arm strength, which is ok to an extent, however, he compounds it with poor accuracy, poor pocket presence and he can’t make it to his second reads at all. These are things that are not usually improved upon at this level. Not to say it can’t be done, but it’s rare. The lack of experienced coaching and overall talent is evident as well, especially when we face the good teams. But I believe it’s more talent related than coaching at the moment. Scheme aside, our DL blew. There’s no other way to say it. They can’t be the unit on that side of the ball that gets their ### whipped and they did tonight. The LBers all stink. Someone mentioned Singelton and his tackles earlier. What that doesn’t show is that he rarely wins at the point of contact. There were SO MANY plays where contact is at the 4-5 yard mark and he’s driven back another 3-4-5 yards. Than you watch a guy like White for TB and he looks like an absolute animal out there play after play throwing guys around. Brandon Graham after the game even said (im paraphrasing) that Gannon doesn’t have much to work with so there’s not much to he can do and I think that’s a majority of it. Look at the play near the end of the game with Epps. He doesn’t even turn around and if he does that looks like it could have been a pick. The cap should be in good shape next year. We need to add a few decent FA’s and nail the draft. If that can be done, we can get into that 8-9 win range as soon as next year IMO.
  21. I can’t speak for the Bears but the All-22 is gonna be a disaster for Hurts when it comes out. I understand it’s unreasonable to expect him to complete all of them but he was downright awful tonight. With that said, there’s no reason to just dismiss Sanders the way he does. It makes no sense at all especially when you have a QB who appears to be off his game.
