  1. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    This isn’t really true at all. 2010: we draft Wilson. We didn’t need a CB at all. Rob Gronkowski went shortly after that pick. 2011: we draft Wilkerson. This might have been the only pick I was for back in the day. 2012: we draft Coples. Awful pick. I wanted Alston Jeffrey there. But even if we wanted to go defense Jones was clearly the better pick. 2013: we draft Milliner and Sheldon. I wanted Warmack and Hopkins really bad. I did also want Geno and got my wish. And I know 99% of you don’t agree. I think if we gave Geno weapons he’d still be our starting QB. 2014: we drafted Pryor. I wanted Cooks or Matthews really bad there. 2015: we draft Leo. I wanted Beasley if we were to go defense. I also really wanted Gurley it White as well (White can’t stay healthy). 2016: we draft Lee. I wanted Doctson or Treadwell there. 2017: I was actually happy with the Adams pick. 2018: I was happy with the Darnold pick.

    The points are valid on either side. You can’t just keep addressing offense in the mid late rounds hoping to catch lightning in a bottle. You have to use valuable picks on guys. We’ve wasted countless picks over the years on developmental WRs, RBs, TEs and OL. And it 100% shows on the field. We have 0 difference makers son offense in an offensive league. We still think defense wins championships. And absolutely you need a good defense to win, but you have to score to win. And we haven’t been able to do that for an extremely long time. And the main reason behind that is we constantly prioritize defense early in the draft over offense. We can say all we want well we can add a RB, 2 WRs, OL innthe coming years... but when have we shown to do this. We just drafted our 1st offensive player in Round 1 in like our last 8 picks. It’s ridiculous. We will continue to not be good until we have an offense. Hopefully the FO realizes this. Otherwise drafting Darnold was a waste.
  3. Offseason news/rumours

    I’d only be ok with trading him if it were to start Darnold. Not start McCown for 8 games then go to a Darnold. It’s so hard as a fan to watch these 35-40yr olds QB this team. It’s been too many years for us as fans to have to deal with. So if keeping TB around us enough to not start McCown then yes I can careless about that 2nd Rounder. We can’t seem to draft well there anyway. So I’d rather atleast jeep ya as fans excited for the team each week with not trading TB rather than add that 2nd. Now if trading TB means Darnold starts immediately... then yes trade TB. To sum up... I think we’re completely wasting the team and fans time by starting McCown in any way this year. Unless an emergency pops up.
  4. Offseason news/rumours

    Our probelm is we never take the good obvious choice in the mid Rounds. We take these guys we have to do research on and hope. And it never turns out well.
  5. Offseason news/rumours

    I actually don’t think we trade TB. That’s just guessing though. Trade him for a 2nd Rounder? Why so we never play the guy and trade him a couple years later for a 7th? No thank you.
  6. Offseason news/rumours

    Well the fact is that Darnold will have to play incredible to start Week 1. Im sure a lot of coaches think just like a lot of us that playing McCown is rather pointless. Making Teddy the more than likely Week 1 starter hopefully if he shows he healthy and like the QB he was 2 years ago.
  7. What makes the pick worse is that he never even took a snap before we moved on. He's also still only 23. So its very very rare to never play a 2nd rounder period in any regular season action AND give up on a 23yr old. In hindsight we should have kept him never signed McCown (maybe made him a coach) and rolled into the season with Teddy, Darnold and Hack.
  8. Offseason news/rumours

    Bridgewater has shown he can play in this league though. Health is his only issue. So if he shows he is his old self. He is the best QB atm. He’s not the future here being that we drafted Darnold... but I’d like to see him start over mccown.
  9. Offseason news/rumours

    I think in hindsight we wouldn't have brought him back as a player. He would have been asked to coach. We gave him starter money and then brought in 2 better options than him post him signing. With a hell of a lot more upside as well. My main point is that he shouldn't start any games this year really. If Teddy is healthy he should start the season (unless Darnold looks ready, which I doubt). Then hand over the reigns to Darnold at about 5-8 games into the season. McCown starting doesn't help this franchise in any kind of way.
  10. Offseason news/rumours

    Teddy I think should start Week 1. Imo starting McCown is a complete waste of time. He’s a player coach right now. Only reason why I think we maybe signed him for the amount we did, was to make sure we hit the cap floor. Ideally for me Teddy plays the 1st 1/2 of the year and then we give it over to Darnold. Teddy and Darnold we won’t rush. For different reasons. One is still trying to get back healthy and to game speed while the other is just learning in general. Both are very smart minds so I like the smarts being in the QB room.
  11. The move to draft him hopefully we forget down the road bc of Darnold. But it’s still very much on my mind of us wasting a 2nd Rounder on a guy that never even took a snap for us and is still only 23. Guys we could have had... Deion Jones, Tyler Boyd, Cody Whitehair, Yannik Ngouke to name a few.

    You clearly are not even getting what I’m saying. I can careless about Sanchez. He was only brought up as an example (as was Geno) that giving a “potential” franchise QB weapons helps. Or in those cases lack of weapons. My point this whole time is to give Darnold weapons. You’ve decided to focus on Sanchez for some reason. Sad.
  13. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    While I like some of the weapons there's no long term stability at RB or WR at all really on the roster. At WR our only younger proven WRs are Enunwa and Robby. One coming off an major neck surgery who's a pending FA and the other who has off the field issues. At RB I like Crowell (he's still only 25) and I'd like to have a receiving back to partner with him. We lack that right now in youth.
  14. Offseason news/rumours

    I expect Rawls to not even make the team unless Crowell or Powell get injured. I'd like to see McGuire get more action in the passing game. All the other lack that speed and open field miss factor.
  15. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    The point is weapons. So you’re actually helping out my debate. Why didn’t he have to throw so much?!?! Bc we had a great OL and run game aka weapons. When he did have to throw the ball he atleast had talented receivers to help him out with getting separation and winning 50/50 balls. These are all things that need to be addressed to make Darnold succeed. We need to innthe next couple years upgrade at RB, WR and OL. To say what we have is good enough will make Darnold fail. There’s like 3 QBs in the whole NFL that can succeed with average weapons. And to think Darnold will be one of those guys is idiotic and fooling ourselves. Give him weapons. Sanchez was merely brought up as an example of how bad he flopped once we thought he was good and we let all his weapons go. It’s an awful way to build a team. It’s an offensive league. So offense should be a priority. Bc we’ve neglected that side of the ball for so long... our talent around QB is very average. And that’s not how to groom a franchise QB.
