FIRE Gettleman, CUT Eli, PLAY for 2020

A generational talent maybe, but still not a good pick. His position just isn't a high priority. We could have traded back a spot or two. I don't believe the Jets weren't offering us that same offer.

Collins is younger and a better player than Ogeltree. We chose Ogeltree over him pretty much.

I can't argue the OV thing but I think we could have swung him for a 7th.

My big thing is still Eli. We need his cap space for his level of play.

To be fair, Ogletree had much, much more of an impact last year in Bettcher's defense than Collins did. Ogletree led all LBs in interceptions with 5, had 2 TDs, 1 sack and 93 tackles. Collins had 96 tackles, 0 ints, 0 sacks. Collins is a really good player, but it is very possible he isn't worth the high price tag in this defense because he isn't asked to do that much. 

I'm with others here on Eli- no reason to cut him for this year. The money we save would just need to be used on a FA QB. His contract is up after this year and he sure as hell isn't getting another one. The Collins decision threw me a bit, but Gettleman is doing a decent job rebuilding.

One of the better ones at his position no less. 

He's one of the, if not the, best pass blocking guards in football.

Has Eli been cut yet?

Why cut Eli? You want to send a rookie out there to throw to our legendary WR1... THE STERLING SHORTMAN SHEPHERDDDDDDD

I truly believe that the only reason we hired Gettleman is he was the only GM candidate that said he would keep Eli until 2074

You guys need to relax. Things will be fine. The trade wasn’t bad cosindering the got back a starter and two picks.

I say we build up the lines, tank next year, and shoot our shot with Tua or Herbert. 

 

Trevor Lawrence would be nice tho 🤔

And none of that is a guarantee that they’d have the impact of Odell or remotely that talent level. We traded away one of the most talented receivers we’ve seen and we think that we get that same value just like that? Screw Gettleman and the management seriously

Sure. And what if the 2019 draft class is like the 2013? Then we traded a generational player and top 3 WR in OBJ for a maybe decent-good strong safety in Peppers and two placeholders out of the league in a few years. Trash.
