    Commas save lives: Shoot, Fackrell is better.

    I know that I take Ferrell and Wilkins in the first round and be damn happy about it.

    That's not what was said at all. Recent stats show how fast QBs are getting rid of the ball and if you can't pressure up the middle you can't get to them. I never commented on Pettine's preference at all. Brady didn't get sacked through the AFC playoffs once, Edge needs time to get there, you have to have pressure up the middle.

    If Capers was still DC I'd agree with this, but I firmly believe that a DT who can collapse the pocket is MORE valuable than an Edge. We still need help at the edge, but we don't pressure up the middle either and that let's QBs step up. Dexter Lawrance/Christian Wilkins/Jeffrey Simmons at 30 would make me very excited.
  5. Backup QB's

    People forget that there were talk that we were considering Kizer when we grabbed King. Probably trying to create interest for another trade down, but he was on our radar. He's still very young and with a less complicated offense he may start to show a little more. Like people mentioned, we have all the resources in the QB slot that we can afford. I'm interested to see if Kizer flashes a little more this year.

    I'm sorry, but we should sign defensive players because they say kind things about our QB? Neither Barr nor Collins would ever be on the field with ARodg at the same time. Gute can't let the 'I like Rodgers' thing to effect FA.

    I agree, but the NFL would suspend you for touching a woman.

    He sounds good, but if I may point out an aspect that gets a lot of play down the road.....He's almost 24 years old. That is ancient for a rookie and the physical maturation is probably over. I know there was a lot of comments when we drafted Fackrell about the age component. I don't throw him off my board, but it is a legitimate point- Old rookies.

    Fack could have broken that window in ONE shot. Pass on this guy.

    Sign Mo and draft Simmons @ 30. Serendipity.
  11. Whoa, perception doesn't match production. He most definitely didn't light the world on fire. If the Pack would've stayed put and drafted him and he had the same stats people would be calling him a bust. 11 regular season games, 21 total tackles, 4.5 sacks. We would be crucifying Gute for that move. Include that NO gave up a future #1 makes it hurt that much more. Maybe he gets better, maybe not. Hell, Fack had double digit sacks and we still trash him.

    I don't think the Andre Rison acquisition can be compared. Rison was signed on to a team that had GREAT leadership and was heading into the playoffs. There was little risk because he was so dispensable if he didn't behave. If you trade for A Brown, you're bringing him onto a non-playoff team with HUGE leadership questions. It really has huge risk to blow up in your face. His age and demeanor scare me more than his contract.

    Yes. Reid wasn't ignored because he was just average, he was ignored because he was one of the leaders of the 'kneeling'. He got a one year 'prove it' contract and made good on it. Got rewarded like he should. It doesn't upset the apple cart at all. I would argue that he is being paid what he's worth. That being said, Tre Boston for about 3 yrs 15-18M would seem about right.
  14. I'm going to step in front of the Hock Express and suggest that Irv Jr. is a better athlete who just might fit LaFluer's system even better than Hock. Just a feeling and not knocking Hock, but when I watch Irv Jr I get a feeling he's going to contribute sooner than later and hope he's there at 30, if not 44.

    I don't know about drafting a CB named Holder. OL and CBs shouldn't be named Holder. Other than that? Liked the draft a lot. For some reason I always cringe when people send big money at Clowney (but someone is going to do it!).
