  1. Without Mack that defense gives up a lot more points and Carr sees the field a lot less. We also would be close to 0 in turnover differential. There were more QBs that could have duplicated Carr than DEs that would have duplicated Mack. This is just my opinion and we win very few games if either is not there. I just think Mack was more important and had to overcome poor coaching and almost zero talent around him. LDE Jihad Ward 22 Rook 13 0.0 sacks, 0 interceptions, 1 fumble recovered Oakland Raiders / 2nd / 44th pick / 2016 LDT Stacy McGee 26 3 9 2.5 sacks, 0 interceptions, 0 fumbles recovered Oakland Raiders / 6th / 205th pick / 2013 RDT Dan Williams 29 6 11 0.5 sacks, 0 interceptions, 0 fumbles recovered Arizona Cardinals / 1st / 26th pick / 2010 RDE Khalil Mack*+ 25 2 16 11.0 sacks, 1 interception, 3 fumbles recovered Oakland Raiders / 1st / 5th pick / 2014 LLB Bruce Irvin 29 4 16 7.0 sacks, 0 interceptions, 0 fumbles recovered Seattle Seahawks / 1st / 15th pick / 2012 MLB Perry Riley 28 6 11 Washington Redskins / 4th / 103rd pick / 2010 RLB Malcolm Smith 27 5 14 0.0 sacks, 1 interception, 1 fumble recovered Seattle Seahawks / 7th / 242nd pick / 2011 LCB David Amerson 25 3 15 0.0 sacks, 2 interceptions, 0 fumbles recovered Washington Redskins / 2nd / 51st pick / 2013 RCB Sean Smith 29 7 15 0.0 sacks, 2 interceptions, 0 fumbles recovered Miami Dolphins / 2nd / 61st pick / 2009 SS Karl Joseph 23 Rook 9 0.0 sacks, 1 interception, 1 fumble recovered Oakland Raiders / 1st / 14th pick / 2016 FS Reggie Nelson* 33 9 16 0.0 sacks, 5 interceptions, 2 fumbles recovered Jacksonville Jaguars / 1st / 21st pick / 2007 You tell how many of those players you would have replaced if you were GM? We would have been last in points and yards allowed without Mack.
  2. With all that said I believe this game comes down to us hitting Newton in the mouth. If we can hit him we will win. If Abraham can come downhill and smack him if he breaks containment then you will see a lot of inaccurate throws after than. If I am Guenther Abraham's primary job will be to come up and hit Newton every time he gets outside the tackles.
  3. You can not honestly tell me you are going to place the defensive shortcomings on Mack's shoulders. Also of those 7 comeback drives Carr had how many times did he leave more than enough time for the opposing team to drive back down the field and win? The defense had to hold most of those games. They also had to overcome KNJ. There was a reason Mack was defensive player of the year that year.
  4. True but the top 10 RBs in the league could do what we need. Mack was DPOY and all-pro. Not often a defensive player can win games for you and I would say 2016 was just as much him if not more than Carr.
  5. I think that has more to do with the teams he has faced. Cam only does a couple things well so a good game plan should be able to stop him. If we can hit him early and our offense can do what they did against the Saints we should be fine. We held the ball for over 36 minutes and scored TDs instead of field goals or 3 and outs. I also do not expect Edelman to be 100% after getting dropped on the top of his head.
  6. I am not concerned with Cam unless the Patriots are inside the 5 yard line. Cam has a 2 seem fastball and that is it. I am more concerned with BB's game plan. Just bring the back 7 on blitzes and hit him a few times and he will lose his focus. Everyone knows I have been very critical of Carr the past 3 years but I would not have traded Carr for Cam.
  7. Rookie CBs always struggle. I am actually surprised Arnette is playing as well as he is. He has made some mistakes but has also made a few plays.
  8. I have been saying this since we drafted him. Just because he was unable to perform any drills that could measure his athletic ability on a level playing field against his peers would have made me not take him at #4. I actually like both DTs on that line more than him but we needed a DE more but not a base end. This will sound a lot like an Al Davis quote but I could tell he was not a twitchy athlete just by watching him walk.
  9. They have a hard time not getting injured during practice and pre-season. Now the doctors are taking the players out. I wish him the best but that might be going to another team next year.
  10. I saw him lining up inside also and was not happy with the results. Looks like we are going to play Ferrell the position JimKelly wanted to sign Clowney. I would have rather drafted Allen instead of Ferrell and signed Clowney over Nassib. Would have cost an extra $5 million but at least we would be getting some pass rush. I am not going to say it is a failure but it is leaning that way. We got back to back wins so overall it works but this is a glaring hole.
  11. He will have a chance this year since we are not playing in KC during December. Carr checked another box for me tonight. The team still needs some fixes and Thomas being out helped the defense but we looked good against a top level team tonight. Its nice to see a good game plan executed like that. Carr looked good and pushed the ball down the field. I saw a few times he should have run with the ball but he did not. If he would have that would have really put the Saints D on their heels. Great overall game tonight and I have to say thank you to the Saints for shooting themselves in the foot a few times. I did not know how to feel watching the other team implode for once.
  12. I had the exact same scenario. I also drafted Fournette late just in case. I have 2 teams and one I need Jacobs to put up just over 16 for the win and in the other I need Waller to get just over 3. I am thinking I should be okay but yo never know. Just dropped B Edwards for Latavius Murray. He is my #5 RB so I will just hold onto him in case Kamara goes down.
  13. I do not want to add another hole to the team just to add another hole. I also do not want to hold onto a player that is not worth it to not create another hole. The players play dictates who stays and goes. If you live up to your contract you stay and if you do not then you go. Brown's cap numbers are only considered team friendly when you compare them to his cap number this year. At $14 and $15.25 he still needs to be on the field and playing at an all pro level. We can sign a top RT for $10 a year or draft one on day 2. I really like having him on the team and do not mind paying him his money over the next two years if he proves he can stay healthy.
  14. I believe Good played RT before coming over and was considered a good RT. I am not saying he is as good as Brown but at 1/6th the price and the ability to stay on the field makes him a better option in my opinion. I would rather have a solid starter that plays 16 then an all pro that plays 8. You do realize Brown is the 18th highest payed player this year and Good is the 24th highest paid RT in the league. Brown's cap is just short of doubling the 2nd highest paid RT in the league. If he can not get on the field it does not matter how good he is when he is on it. I am not saying get rid of him right now or that we should trade him in the offseason. What I am saying is conditional on him showing an inability to stay healthy going forward. If he can not get on the field on a regular basis going forward we need to go in a different direction.
  15. I think we should be able to get something for him. His contract is still big after this year but it is more inline with what he should be paid. It also has zero dead money so the risk is only in the pick. If he comes back and plays at a very high level it should be pretty easy.
