True. Isn't Fackrell used a bit differently though?

Gary's used more like Z where as Fackrell is more like P, but at some point they're still rushing the QB.

Yeah, that's what I figured. Z's more of an every-down player than P is at the moment. Then again, part of it may have to do with the fact that F is more familiar with the scheme than R, Z, or P. 

On the other hand, if R, Z, and/or P were to go down, we'd probably be thinking F and A...

Both are guys that shouldn't be coming off the field for any scenario other than rest.

Judging by opposing offenses WR separation, I'd say Smithx2 (and bad QB play) is the only thing holding that D together

Gary is born 12/3/97

Burns is born 4/23/98

If Gary is a project because of his age, Burns is only 4 months older. 

Younger actually

I’d be fine offering him a little more than his market value on a 1 year deal. Really want no part of a multi year deal without an easy out 

We're not going to insult him like that.

Blake should've been extended long ago. Unless we're really high on a MLB in this upcoming draft, we're going to have to extend him. The more time passes, the higher his price.

Honestly, I don't think his value is going to move much over the next dozen games.  He is what he is.  A solid ILB who is nothing spectacular.  The only thing we might come across is his lack of willingness to sign a deal prior to FA.

Why?

I'm with you.  He's got a clearly different feel than Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray.  Let someone else overdraft him.

Quarterback is going to have to be addressed this draft or next.  I think we got the luxury of one more year, but if we dont address it early in 2021 we are really playing with fire.  I will absolutely not be flipping tables if we take a qb early in this draft though, we need to have a succession plan ready, the time is coming.

Realistically, who are you looking at?  We're not going to be anywhere close enough to draft Tua Tagovailoa, and with how well Joe Burrow is playing he's quickly moving into that top 5 category.  And Justin Herbert is quietly putting up another monster year.  Realistically, we could easily be looking at 3 QBs going inside the top 10.  Jake Fromm is coming off arguably his worst game as a Bulldog, and his stock seems to be trending in the wrong direction.  I'm not sure he's much more than a game manager at this point.  Jacob Eason has some appeal at this point based on upside, but not a potential franchise QB type. Best case scenario, Jalen Hurts turns into Dak Prescott which doesn't seem likely.  You can draft the tools of Jordan Love, and hope you can develop him into something but he's been massively disappointing when we were talking about potential darkhorse FRP.

Ehlinger has absotely not been impressive today though on the flip side of the coin

Because he's not a very good passer...

So . . . you can get one year out of him before he's a Free Agent?

I mean, is that any different than Aaron Rodgers?

I see a stronger Sammy Watkins.

I don't see either one of them.  I saw a really good comp on Twitter, and now I can't remember it for the life of me.

Your missing the point which is that the depth at receiver is shocking. If Adams go down there is pretty much nothing left, you can't be using MVS as a WR1 - hence the scenario last week when we pretty much had to not bother with receivers which you can't get away with every week. And with Adams becoming slightly more vulnerable to injuries then its more likely we will be in that scenario.

Not saying we draft WR in the first round but we need to be drafting them early. For me, in an ideal world you go OT first and WR second.  Hence why you can't be playing games with Blake. As a good productive player entering his second contract, you need him signed as we can't be blowing premium picks on a MLB when the offence needs serious love in the draft.

That's the case with any team.  How many offenses are going to be fine without their #1 WR?
