  1. I agree with everything you're saying except for the WR point. Going forward saying, "I still think David Sills can do good things for us..." is not good enough. We have to put people in that WR room that he has to beat to earn his playing time.
  2. I think the larger point is you can only spread your money so thin. To pay Leonard Williams as much as he will want effectively makes him your pass rusher. Leonard Williams is not Aaron Donald so let's not pay him that way. Do you not think we can find a more disruptive pass rusher than Leonard Williams? We also had a very good run defense before Williams was even on the team. That has not been the problem. Tomlinson and DLaw more than plug the middle without Williams. McKinney is an unknown at this point. He played over top and in the box at Alabama. Personally, I'd rather Ryan/McKinney than Peppers/McKinney. Ryan is your centerfielder and slot/man safety. McKinney is your box safety with comfortability staying deep. Overall, between Tomlinson and Williams I'll take Tomlinson only because I think he will be cheaper. Sign Ryan and let Ryan/McKinney/Peppers play together for a year. See what shakes out there and ultimately make a decision whether to keep or dump Peppers after next year.
  3. Leonard Williams is having a good season but even at his younger age, he is far less valuable IMO than Logan Ryan. You can find Williams's production more easily. He's not making the entire defense better. When you look at our FA list, he is not my top priority.
  4. This DeAndre Baker situation is fascinating but I can't help but be a little disappointing knowing what we know now that we're going to lose the opportunity to figure out for ourselves whether he could've become a good CB for us. There's no chance he signs back with us once he's off the exempt list. And we probably wouldn't even give him an offer. He may end up being nothing but if he turns into a good CB2 (exactly what we need) and we dropped him over a ridiculous situation would hurt the soul. But enough negativity! Good win yesterday, we're obviously headed in the right direction. Onward and upward!
  5. eh, I disagree on Garrett.. it was ugly early but he seems to have found how to get the most out of the pieces he has.. honestly, if they solved Daniel Jones's issues they'd have 3-4 wins and would be putting up considerably more points. I think they look way more competitive this year than last so even though Jones had better numbers last year, I don't put that on Garrett
  6. At risk of overreacting to Lemieux's debut, I would leave him at LG for the rest of the season and transition Hernandez over to RG. I have a feeling the Thomas-Hernandez duo is an issue, especially calling out assignments. Lemieux may not be better at that over an extended period of time but we have to figure that out. If he holds up well at LG and Hernandez performs better at RG, you're solving two problems with one. Add in if it helps Thomas in pass protection more, it's a no brainer. It may fail, but even if it does, we're back at the same point we are right now. Might as well figure out what we have.
  7. three straight games blowing an 11 point lead, and it's really not the defense's fault.. we're not a good defense by any means but they're battling and keeping us in games. jones constantly puts them in difficult situations. and then everyone gives jones credit for the final drive but he threw 3-4 near-picks.. slayton bailed him out on the 4th down play early in the drive and then he finally made a good throw or two but it's fools gold. this man has to get better and soon. he is totally overwhelmed back there
  8. I think you're taking recency into effect here. Tannehill was no better than Jones in his 2nd year
  9. That's a pretty good comparison with where he's at right now. Hopefully he can turn it around because we're not getting Trevor Lawrence so it's in our best interest for DJ to work out
  10. Yeah I disagree here. It's not just elite QBs but you also named some QBs that are not very good at this point (Cousins, Rivers, maybe Mayfield). The rest of those guys - and many others - have multiple games where they straight up put the team on their back. Without Stafford, the Lions don't win any games. There's no way to prove these things out but I'd bet if you swapped DJ and Stafford that we'd have at least 3 more wins over the course of Jones's tenure. He's not the only problem on this team, but he is also not making anything better.. at all
  11. Honestly, that's a very easy narrative to fall back onto. His production is bad. He's on pace for 11.4 TDs on the season! He might not surpass 3,000 passing yards in a full season. That is abysmal. He just doesn't make them better, at all. Of course, this is the result of a lot of factors including the OL being a challenge and the WRs not being able to separate and learning a new offense etc. In some ways I feel bad for him but again, good QBs overcome all of that.
  12. It sounds ridiculous but the time to show you are the real deal is so short these days that the clock is already almost up on Jones. It's not 2004 all over again. Look at what good QBs do to a franchise with Mahomes, Jackson, even Brady at his advanced age. They changed the fortunes of their franchises. You can see they are outliers, fine. But even the middle tier guys. Look what Goff did for the Rams, what Murray with Arizona, Josh Allen with the Bills, the list goes on and on. It's a team sport and the margin between winning and losing is so small BUT those guys make the plays. They force success on their teams. Jones doesn't. I hope he turns it around with the rest of the season but it's crazy how much I've soured on him throughout the course of this season so far.
  13. Sunday was fun and all but we're not winning this game. I don't see our offense doing much against the Eagles defense. We'll probably have a costly turnover or two. Boston Scott will run all over us. It's just one of those deflating games
  14. IMO they should sign Logan Ryan over Jabrill Peppers this offseason. Ryan is obviously older but he has some good years left after transitioning from CB to FS. He is a proven leader on and off the field. I think Peppers is what he is at this point and while he's okay, he's not making us better. I really believe Ryan makes the secondary better. If they re-sign Ryan, they're a CB and EDGE away from having a respectable defense.
  15. I only want one thing from this game: no 3-and-out or turnover on the opening drive. Yes, that's how low the bar is at this point
  16. And now most likely Nick Mullens, no Mostert or Coleman.. McKinnon is a good RB but this 49ers team is HURTING. The Giants could've easily been 3-0 looking back on how winnable those games were but this is who we are. Hopefully we can pull this one out
  17. I've been waiting to see more analysis on him from this week. On the surface it seemed like he had a clean game again. If I'm thinking of the miscommunication play you're referencing, it seemed like someone else's miscommunication. He had Mack and the interior guy both on him. Hernandez had clearly picked someone else up and Thomas had to make a choice. That play was puzzling but I haven't seen anyone else mention it. We could also be talking about different plays though. Seems like a lot of empty stats to me. Talented enough to make some nice plays when we're playing from behind and he can just use his athleticism but he's not consistent. Makes boneheaded plays, we all know he can't block well, idk. I'm kinda over him. Just give me a gritty guy that can make some key catches and keep the defense honest. I'll give comeback player to Fleming. He was on Mack often as well and held up. Relatively quiet game from him, which they desperately need. You have to wonder if the Nick Gates experiment may be over in another few weeks though.. It's frustrating man. On one hand, you have the ball popped into the air for an easy interception but a trend is a trend at this point. He has to stop double-pumping in the pocket (that's what she said). If the OL was better, sure take a couple extra seconds but you don't have that OL. Two reads and bail unless you're in desperation mode. But on the other hand this dude is deadly accurate. He's not throwing errant Eli INTs. When he has time he consistently throws a perfect ball.
  18. I think they'll keep him around at 6-10.. should they? that's debatable but I think they would
  19. watching the games yesterday made me more excited for tonight.. on tv, it looks like any other year.. the games were competitive, not significantly sloppier without preseason.. we still may suck but it'll be fun to watch them flying around out there.
  20. Unfortunately, all of these were true last year and we still sucked! But yeah, I'm in agreement. Essentially multiple players need to make a jump for us to be competitive. We may steal a game or two that we shouldn't win but we're in the 4-6 win territory.
  21. Dalvin Tomlinson is an interesting choice. Haven't heard much about him being super vocal or anything. Good for him though
  22. I don't know if it's just how the reporters are positioning it but training camp seems way more intense/competitive this year. Who knows if it will translate but it provides a little hope that they're headed in the right direction
  23. He seems to be making a lot of plays.. I don't think he'll take a huge leap to #1 and I'd probably avoid him in fantasy but he should be effective
  24. that had to be such a tough decision for him.. he may never get another look.. Love is a below average corner so he can't be the solution.. logan ryan is the popular choice but i don't see that happening
  25. I'm so desensitized to all of this at this point lol
