JRob has had his share of hits and misses in free agency, just like any other GM.   Nobody bats 1.000.

 

But he's shown the ability to quickly recognize and address his mistakes, and he hasn't hamstrung the team by throwing huge money at average talent.

 

We can nitpick individual moves and micro-analyze all we want....but the fact is, JRob has done an excellent job of adding talent and improving the roster year over year.   The team is in a far better position now than they were when he was hired....which is really all you can ask from a GM.

Can't really say it better than this.

They have more talent for sure but are they really any closer to be a legitimate SB contender  today as they were in 2016?

 

At best, we are the third best team in our division and with Foles in Jacksonville that may not be true.  You cannot do anything in January if you don’t control your division

In the year of our lone SB appearance we did not win the division

Jesus Christ. The Colts have done nothing in FA, neither have the Texans. Jax cut half their defense to get Foles. We are the only team to legitimately upgrade our roster in FO. What more would you have our GM do, exactly?

Good teams sit back and laugh at the teams that go crazy in free agency.  I’m not sure we have gotten substocloser to beating Indy and Houston with these moves.

But I do think these signings makes us a better team. Plus we missed key players to injury. Yes it happens but our injuries really were starters.

OK.  They were 13-3 and were 2nd behind a 14-2 team that they happened to give the Jaguars the 2 losses (3 eventually).  They went 9-1 in the division that year.  It was an anomaly that they were a wild card team

It's way, way too early to make a judgment on the off season.

Im making a judgement as of now. The guy is bitching about what Robinson has done this offseason. What more could he have done except for make a big trade or overpay mediocre LBs?

Vacarro re-signed. Pamphile re-signed. Keen re-signed. Good teams pay their players. Saffold is a huge upgrade over Spain. It’s obvious just watching 5 minutes of video. Humphries is a huge upgrade in the slot, a position we didn’t have a true player for last year. Wake is a huge upgrade on Morgan and Orakpo. What more can the guy do?

Lets see:

1.  We needed an edge rusher.  We added a vet with a good history of getting to the QB when utilized properly.  Not a long term solution for sure, but will provide an edge rusher (if used properly) for 1 maybe two yrs while hopefully schooling some of our young guys.

2. We needed some kind of IOL.  We added another vet that has ran Zone blocking, can down right flatten people with his run blocking, and does pretty well with passpro.  IOL still is weak in my opinion but still the LG shouldn't be a concern now.

3. We needed a reliable slot receiver.  We got another vet with sure hands, can get some separation,  knows how to get a first on third down, and can take a lick.

 

For now, I'd say we are a little closer to betting the unbeatable Luck and putting it to Huston than we were last week.  Sure it might not all pan out, but if JRob (and the rest of the FO) could predict the season and players output during FA hey we'd probably have a SB or two and be hated like NE.
