  1. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    Oh I agree. I think the Mayock move was a good one. Can't have too many cooks in the kitchen. He is a better talent evaluator than Reggie no doubt. I don't think any of us can say we aren't excited for the draft. Mayock will no doubt keep it interesting.

    I think Reg was definitely more of a football guy. Probably why he was so recommended by Madden and others to Mark. I will always respect that he got the team out of cap hell and draft irrelevance (in the way of having picks at all). He brought some stability to the franchise in a time when it was much needed. I love what Mayock is doing and think he's got the personnel moves in a good path.

    These tend to be my thoughts on it as well. I really appreciate that he is willing to move both ways in the draft. I liked a lot of things about Reggie, but his draft movement was woeful.

    Agreed. Did not matter what opponent he was against, dude just made plays. I will never forget the Georgia Hail Mary Flat out baller. Would love to see us get him. I'd cheer hard for him.

    Love the Jennings pick. I'm a die-hard Vol fan and he has been the one player who has popped and been an absolute lynchpin on the field even through all the turmoil the past few years. Whenever we have needed a clutch play throughout the past few seasons, it has always been Jennings bailing us out of anyone was going to.

    Burrow is my favorite prospect since Luck. Still not sure I'd want to mortgage the future to the tune it would take to go up and get him.

    To clarify, I don't hate Wentz but he has yet to prove anything. He has great talent but until he actually converts that to results the jury is out. Keep in mind that it was only a few years ago Carr was spreading the ball around and making Rivera look like an NFL starter. Ehh I don't disagree that he is highly paid and we would all wish the contract was less, but that is unfortunately the modern day NFL. If you want to resign a player you typically overpay, if that player is a QB double it. Like I said, not against upgrading but after the last decade+ I want something more than a cross your fingers situation if we move on, and short of Bridgewater in free agency and Burrow in this draft I don't feel comfortable replacing him with just anybody for the sake of making a change just to do it. I would like to see a more pragmatic approach than that.

    I haven't missed a single season where he has led his team deep into the playoffs because those don't exist. Quit being purposefully obtuse. I at no point said we can't upgrade, but I want it to be an upgrade and not just treading water. Otherwise I'd like a project we can sit behind Carr because his contract is not bad all things considered. 25m is not a thing for a QB these days so quit acting like we are paying an absolute king's ransom. Also Jason Campbell had a good half season for us. Sorry, that's not a valid example. You can throw crap at a wall all day but the fact of the matter is that Carr is the best QB this team has had in ages. Can we upgrade? Yes. Should they unless it is a clear upgrade or a rookie with major potential? No.

    Carson needs to stay healthy before I annoint him as a playmaker. He can't stay available so when that changes I'll change my tune. I also agree with you on that a playmaker can change an offense, unfortunately they don't grow on trees. All I am saying is I'm not ok with getting rid of Carr for a project. Totally fine with drafting someone later to put under him, but short of that or trading up for Burrow which I don't see us doing I don't want to play that game.

    Also 25 mill for a QB right now is hardly bad. That's a terrible argument to use at this point with the rapid rise of QB contracts.
  12. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    Yall thinking a QB is gonna totally change this team are in for a rude awakening. So when Carr is gone and we still win 7 or less games who yall gonna scapegoat? Honest question, because I feel like none of you remember pre Carr. I dont think the man is amazing but I also remember watching Andrew Walter, Aaron Brooks, Tui, Culpepper, Mirer, Rob freaking Johnson, and every other pedestrian that took those snaps. I'm not saying Carr is incredible or even the long term answer, but to act like he is complete trash shows a lack of football knowledge.

    I am a big Mayock fan. I love what he is doing. Between him and Gruden, I'd much rather have Mayock on staff.

    Yall act like Reggie put us in the dark ages, when he is the only gm to get us to the playoffs in 15 years. I'll reserve judgment until the current administration can at least match that feat.

    If you want Fitz you are someone that has no vision for the future and wants a player that has been nothing more than a stopgap journeyman his entire career. I absolutely get the frustration with Carr, but wanting Fitz is laughable at best.
