Winners and Losers for the 2017 free agency discussion!

Recommended Posts

Let's discuss this...these are just few...

 

I think the winners are:

Jaguars, for picking up a very good corner back and adding Calais Campbell, their defense is gonna be stacked going in the draft. All they really need is a better QB, and people are saying they may end up bringing Romo.

 

I also think the Browns are winners, 11 picks in the first two rounds in 2017/2018, they might become a relevant franchise by 2019, they will need a franchise QB, maybe Jimmy Garappolo? 

 

Losers:

Redskins, they are bringing back Cousins, but he ain't go no weapons on offense, what is Cousins going to do with no receivers? 

 

Houston, they lost their best corner, sure they free up some room dumping Brock however they lose that 2nd round pick next year, they still need to fill that QB position and more weapons on offense.

Jacksonville has some long green invested on the defensive side of the ball, for sure/

  Eventually, they have to start moving up in the standings....

 

Browns lost Pryor and I dont know why.....what will they do at QB?

 

I thought the Bears finally turned the page from Jay and Alshon Jeffrey...

Glennon can play and they added some secondary depth....plus they still have the No. 3 pick

I think it's too early yet but so far I like what New England has done tbh.

Good post. It isn't just they brought in more big money guys but winners. Real hard nosed vets at dirty job positions. I think Coughlin will turn around the thinking in that organization. They still don't have a qb so I'm not sure how far they can go but it starts at the top down. Why Cleveland and NE are also winners. Thinking outside the box and getting big pieces to build off of. Cleveland is going to turn that around...and NE is going to have a great shot at back to back. This run started with 3 SBs in 4 years and may finish that way. I think Pittsburgh is taking a last run at it with addditions to their secondary. I like what Chicago is doing.

 

Losers is definitely Houston...weaker on defense and had to pay a 2nd just to get rid of their starting qb. That's bad. I don't like what San Diego did...don't think they got better...still holes on that line and thin at WR. Washington is a train wreck that's clear. AFC East looks like they are all rebuilding (again). Green Bay...I mean it is almost laughable their approach to FA. It's one thing to be cautious but they are down right frightened. Still a lot of time left but that is where I stack it now.

The Jaguars look to continue their pattern of winning the offseason Lombardi, only to severely underwhelm and underperform when it matters.  Last year, I thought they'd be a real threat.  I've learned my lesson

They have a huge question mark at QB. I honestly can't tell if Bortles will be a good or gawd awful QB.

He was great a couple of years ago.  He was brutal last year.  His throwing mechanics are bad; he dips the ball down during his throwing motion.  I think he needs a good offensive-minded head coach (McDaniels?) to help set him straight.  We'll see how Marrone does with him

Getting rid of Gus Bradley has been their best move.

That's probably the worst problem, Jim..when you don't know..

Houston knew....and Brock flew......Jax isn't sure and now they have a superbucks defense waiting for a 'maybe' QB

Yeah I'm quite frankly tired of people talking about "who won free agency" and "who won the draft".  You know what how about in 2 or 3 years we revisit that question and we'll be able to tell you.  Last year I think the Jags won both the draft and free agency but still managed to be one of the worst teams in the NFL.  

 

I'll start saying you won the off season when your off season moves start leading to W's during the real season.

Winners: Colts. Via the Colts section here the new FAs are all young, healthy and fine young men with heart.

 

Losers: Patriots. They traded for Stone Hands. lmaolmaolmao 

 

Sorry I had to. Offseason humor.

And gave up a draft pick to the Saints for their most overrated receiver. lmao

 

The love affair with Brandin Cooks will end the minute he has a bad game against a decent corner/safety or when he demands to be paid big money since his ego is through the roof.

    • The fans anymore just kill me. Talking about the draft after 6 games. We don't know where we are going to pick, we don't know who is gonna be there, we don't know what trades are available.   I feel like we need have some kind of idea of what out options are to have a meaningful conversation about it. We have a young team that is gonna improve over time and we still aren't sure if this is gonna be another 8-8 type of season or a 5-11 type of season, and those 3 wins could be the difference between picking 6 and 15, which are totally different situations. If we had 6 i would be willing to trade down as long as we are still picking in the front half of the first round. But if we have 15, I would rather stay put. I think it's important the Colts target blue chip talent. 
    • Remember them early days when we'd never lose back to back games with Chuck? LOOOONG GONE are those days.   IMO he's a guy in the real world who does his job, but isn't really great at it.   
    •   Why is that "pretty awesome"??   With all our needs,   why would anyone want the team to spend a high number one on a WR?   I think that would be a disaster.......  
    •   Arden Key isn't even wrecking games in college.     Not sure why you're so convinced he'll be doing it in the NFL.   He's got to show a lot more.     He's not Miles Garrett.  
    •   So, was Pagano a tough minded coach when we were winning but suddenly he's a weak minded coach?   You think the changes the last 3 years have nothing to with personnel?   I don't understand this line of thinking at all.       But,  in the grand scheme of things,   I don't think it matters much whether we agree or agree to disagree.....   because I think we both believe that Pags will not be the coach next year.     I'm not saying it's a 100 percent lock,  I think it's too early to make that kind of prediction.....   but we'd have to see dramatic improvement over the next 10 games and I don't think most people here see that happening.   So,  there will likely be a new leader in 2018.....    the only question appears to be.....    who?
