  1. I feel like there is a very good chance we take a mid round QB this year though. Haven't seen this guy at all, but like the idea of trying to roll the dice on someone and let them sit under Tannehill and hope we don't have to use him.
  2. Definite fumble but Jonnu would have had the recovery had the whistle not been blown.
  3. Realistically we can afford to trade a lot of draft capital considering we don’t have too many holes in our roster that need immediate fixing. I mean yeah we need stuff here or there but if this roster currently had a good, consistent QB it would have the talent for 10+ wins easy.
  4. Do we trade up for Sweat if the slide continues. A la Landry
  5. These would be the worst jerseys in the MAC
  6. If the only move we take to address the OLine is taking one player in the third round, I will personally begin to write the eulogy for Mariota’s football career and JRob’s stint with the Titans.
  7. Matt was drafted as a third string QB in the Alliance of American Football.
  8. This is not a realistic scenario, and I’m not gonna parade it as such. I’m just curious what everyone would do if Foles lead the Eagles deep in the playoffs again, and they decide he is their guy long term. Would you trade for him? If so, what would you trade? Would you keep Mariota and let them compete? If we traded Mariota, would we somehow give him to the Eagles or to another team? What would we expect in return? I firmly believe that Mariota can still be the answer so I probably wouldn’t do it. Also, Wentz’s injury history doesn’t really address our problem of needing a healthy QB. What do y’all think? And like I said, this thread isn’t meant for realism; just a kind of interesting talking point that could have a chance to arise.
  9. I’m not saying Brown isn’t a diva but look at his situation. His QB is one of the NFL’s all time biggest assholes. His organization refused to give a proper contract to the best RB in the league (stats wise). His head coach has been criticized as having the least control of the locker room in the league. His OC situation has been a revolving door of people who are never respected (because Ben thinks he is always right). He plays across from a WR who has been a known diva since college. You ou have to remember that Brown was a sixth round pick. He is undersized and he doesn’t even have all world athleticism to make up for it (like Tyreek Hill for example). Brown became a star through determination and hard work. Im not saying Brown wouldn’t be a diva if he came here, but the culture he is in is probably the worst in the league. I don’t think he would enjoy our anemic passing attack, but maybe with a WR that can actually catch the ball, the passing attack would become less awful.
