  1. 2019 Draft Discussion

    I'm actually surprised with our draft pick most years. Last year we all expected Davenport, but we didn't take him when we had the chance. In 2017 we turned down TJ Watt even though we had the chance too.
  2. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Here's a question: What do you see at Jimmy's ceiling this year? What is Hock ceiling over the next 3 years? I think what they're getting at is that a TE, even on their best day, is the No.2 receiver on the team. Is that worth the No. 12 overall pick? Is it worth the No. 30 pick? Obviously TEs contribute in other ways to, so it's not an easy question. I'm just questioning how great a TE has to be to justify a first round pick.
  3. 2019 Draft Discussion

    I think this is understated. I think 2 of our top 4 picks this year need to be dedicated to replacing those guys. Graham and Bulaga probably have the most miles on them when you consider injuries, so that's where I'd start.
  4. This is pretty awesome work, thanks for digesting the data. I'd be curious to see what the bars look like if every Y axis is the same scale, which would give you a better picture of the importance of each position.
  5. Do you think it would have been wise to let him play this upcoming season and hope for the best, with the idea of cutting after next season? It seems like the savings are small enough to make that an option. Or is that a sunk cost fallacy (once you've moved on, swallow the medicine and move on)?
  6. This was very education, thanks. This isn't exactly on topic, but can you elaborate a little on the Nick Perry release? They paid $11M in dead cap and saved like $3M in cap space. Since they were already on the hook for the dead money, wouldn't it have made sense to keep him around this year, since the cap savings from cutting him weren't that large? That $3M seems like a small price to gamble if he becomes what he was in prior years.

    lold Agree. I know it's not rational, but what if all of these guys turn out to be little Perrys?
  8. 2019 Free Agent Discussion

    Are any of these contracts worse than the one Perry signed a few years ago? I'm not seeing much dead cap in the later years of the contracts of any of these signings, but I'm not well versed

    Is Perry cut for sure? It would be a 7M dead cap hit, not excited about that.
  10. Post Superb Owl Mock .... Hoot Hoot

    Yeah, I'm with rcon here. Not to pile one, but I don't see what you gain by cutting Graham and replacing him with Stocker and Hockenson. Rookie TEs are never productive, I think you'd be better off keeping Graham (he's still the number 2 option in this offense) and drafting Hockenson. If you want, sign Stocker to replace Lewis. The Golden Tate move also bothered me. When I looked up the stats, I realized why: Cobb was actually more productive than Tate this season (although Tate was cheaper). For the production I'm gonna get from either of these guys, I'll take a rookie with more upside. The Leveon Bell signing I'm unsure of. On the one hand, if you can make him expendable after the 2nd year, that might work out. I think I'd still rather have a rookie, but I'm open to this idea. After looking at that draft, I'm still shaky on our defense. I don't know much about White, but I would think EDGE would be the priority there (I don't know what the board looks like though).
  11. Leisher's 2019 Mock draft 1-25-19

    I really like the draft. If this team could add a playmaking RB and have a tackle waiting in the wings, this offense could see a big improvement.
  12. Vegas Too Early Mock

    Wow, that's not at all what I pictured AG20 to look like in real life. I liked the FA signings, but I think Thomas could be overvalued. I am a fan of how you spread the money around to plug as many holes as possible. The draft looks good too. I'd like to see us stock up on a few more OL in the middle rounds, which would get us younger on the interior.
  13. Evaluating Gutenkunst's first year

    Thanks for posting, I had never seen a timeline of the facts, only the facts. I certainly understand Madison's position, and I hope he finds peace in his life, regardless of his career. Sounds like it was just bad timing on the packers end.
  14. Evaluating Gutenkunst's first year

    I have a hard time giving him anything other than a C. The Graham move was the height of folly. They cut someone (Jordy) who was old, slowing, expensive, and had a serious knee injury history. They replaced him with someone who is older, slower, more expensive, and had a more serious injury history. Fans loved the deal though, and it looks like they lined up the really get their first dose of how much of a con the free agency market can be. The Rodgers deal still doesn't make much sense to me. It doesn't really look like we got a discount for doing it early. However, it basically had to be done. If you have to shell out dollars, there are worse ways to spend them. Getting Breeland was a plus move. The first round trade was an obvious good move. Josh Jackson was never a great man coverage corner in college, but he was a value in the 2nd round. The 3 receivers are about what I thought they'd be. The Cole Madison thing worries me. Is he coming back? Did the staff not know how this guy felt about football? Was it a mistake to draft him, or did Madison have a change of heart between the draft and training camp? This story is still unfolding. When you put all that together, it looks like an average season to me.

    Only if you buy a jersey the same size Kyler wears. He's 5'-10, 190 lbs. That's a medium, maybe?
