  1. Are we at the end of the Rhodes...?

    I know yours is a complete theoretical deal, but what do you think Rhodes could realistically bring in a trade? He was banged up and had a down year, will be 29 in June, and his cap hit is 13.3 million. I think a second rounder would be optimistic, but I could be wrong.
  2. 2018-2019 Offseason Thread (Season Concludes)

    I suggested DeSean earlier in the off-season and people really do not want him due to his penchant to complain about targets, which is fair. I really really like Greg Dortch as a late round playmaker.
  3. Not a huge twins guy. Was more talking about the Wild, Wolves, and Vikings
  4. And every team has huge contracts holding them back.

    Plus ACL's are traditionally 9 month recoveries in today's day and age. That would put him back on the field at the end of November. And he could probably be getting some practice reps before that. Now we don't know how much a rookie could contribute late in the season without many reps, but even if you just used him on pass rush Downs and let him go we could have a fresh interior pass rusher for a late season push.
  6. Unfortunately that won't happen. This team is stuck in purgatory.

    I want Greg Dortch on this football team. Love his potential as our speedy WR3 with big time return abilities.

    That's why I said perceived reach. As in the perception around the league or amongst draft pundits is that it's a reach.

    I mean teams panic and reach for prospects to fill needs all the time. If we have a perceived "reach" for an OL, but we reach because we are high on the guy and believe he is a long term starter, I'm fine with that. If the team isn't actually sold that a guy is worth the pick that we use on him but we take him because it's a need, I'm not fine with that. We took Christian Ponder because we needed a quarterback. That was a panic move. However, the Cowboys took Travis Fredrick who was perceived as a reach at the time, but they took him because they thought he could anchor their line and that was a great pick. I definitely think teams do make picks "just to take one" when they have a huge need.
  10. 2019 - Oh, how we need an O-line

    It will be interesting to see what happens with Easton. Our medical staff obviously knows more about him than anyone else, so if we don't want him back then that doesn't bode well for his situation. Since I don't know how he is doing, I would prefer to resign Compton instead of him.

    Hopefully we are more "open to" moving him to guard than "planning on" it. If a good Tackle prospect is there for us, grab him. If a better Guard is there, take him. Just get the best prospect you can and put the best group out there you can

    I haven't watched Taylor yet. I will get to it for soon. I came away very impressed when I watched Dillard.
  13. NFL Snooze News: Volume Four, Por Favor

    The gambles are getting bigger and bigger for sure. A couple teams "hit the lottery", so teams are trying to follow suit. It will be interesting to see if the Taylor/Lafluer/Kingsbury hires crash and burn. If they do, does the pendulum swing back to the Jeff Fisher and John Fox types?

    You've gotta put it is perspective. If the other person in contention was Hue Jackson, the Bengals made a phenomenal hire.
  15. 2019 Draft Talk

    Completely agree. Was just speaking on the report that we were going to move Reiff to guard.
