  1. I think I might actually have Lance over Fields. I really like his tools and I'm worried about Fields and his decision making. I feel like with the right system and development Lance can be really special.
  2. Very happy with the staff that Campbell has put together. If he has the leadership qualities that people think he does then they should get the most out of this team, which is something that we have been missing over the last few years. I struggle to think of more than a small handful of players that really developed and improved under Patricia. A lot of guys seemed to stagnate or actually get worse. Romeo Okwara is probably the one big exception.
  3. If they like someone then they need to get them this year. There's no guarantee that there will be a good prospect available next year. The class probably won't be as deep at QB, and who knows where we will end up picking.
  4. I don't see Golladay coming back. Maybe the front office will feel a bit risky and try to do a tag and trade deal with him. Jones kinda sounded like he was gone too. If that's the case...we really need a veteran WR or two. There are a bunch of good ones this year, actually, that should come in quite a bit cheaper than Kenny G. Curtis Samuel, Corey Davis are both young and have produced but have the potential for more. Allen Robinson and JuJu are both going to be expensive, but could actually be cheaper than Golladay if he's really looking for money. You can always grab a guy
  5. Thanks for the clarification, guys. Still looking to offload an outfielder (Schwarber, Winker, or Dozier). Would mostly be looking at getting draft pick compensation.
  6. Alright, so just making sure my thinking is right on this... I have Kiriloff and Madrigal in minor league slots. They both got called up last year but I never moved them to my MLB team. During the draft, I plan on promoting one or both of them to my major league squad, then using those open spots to draft a prospect or two. That's fine, right?
  7. I'll miss Stafford, and I hope that he does well somewhere else, but this was the right move. He's still a good QB, but if he wanted out now, there's no guarantee that we would be able to keep him when his contract is up in two years. Let him go, get some value back in a draft class where we only have five picks, and build for the future.
  8. I think that the problem is going to be that if the team keeps Stafford, they're probably not going to end up with a Top 2-3 pick unless he gets hurt. He's good enough to elevate the team out of the cellar as long as he's playing. If you keep Stafford, you're probably going to have to give up a lot to trade up and get one of those top guys.
  9. I'm not sure if that's as meaningful today. That's an old philosophy, though it does have merit, and I don't think that Campbell or Holmes are necessarily married to those criteria.
  10. Glenn seems like a great hire. Wouldn't surprise me if he ends up getting a HC job in the next couple of years, which would honestly be great for us since it would mean that he was successful here.
  11. I pray that we don't go with Bevell as HC. Seems like a long shot, but unless the guy has leadership capabilities that we don't know about, I don't understand why he would be a fit. He's a decent offensive coordinator but not a guy that I would consider an offensive guru or genius.
  12. At this point, I think I actually want...Marvin Lewis? At least we know that he's a good coach. He did a lot with very little. Arthur Smith would be ok, I guess. Dan Campbell...meh.
  13. That wouldn't have been up to Holmes, though. He was just the director of college scouting. He wasn't making trades. I've warmed up to Holmes a bit. I'm not thrilled, but it sounds like he's at least very forward-thinking and into analytics and is highly respected as a scout. That's more than I can say for Quinn.
  14. Thanks, I hate it. Definitely wanted someone with more experience. I'd rather have some stability and experience at the GM level and then take a swing on a less experienced coach.
