Winners and Losers for the 2017 free agency discussion!

15 posts in this topic

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.

The Jaguars have won as many off seasons as games the last few years.

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.

The Early NFL FA Period is like any Professional Preseason in that it means nothing

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.

    • I looked her up. She's not bad. I'm not wake up to watch the weather just for her though. 
    • Round 1 - #15 A: Budda Baker FS – Bob Sanders comparison...need we say more.  Longevity of safeties in the NFL playing into their mid-30s has proven return on investment thus this is our wisest selection here.  Too many other teams also in dire need at FS and chances of landing either Budda Baker or Marcus Williams in Round 2 looking more like a long shot.  Two years without a valid starting FS is unacceptable imo B: Hasson Reddick OLB – With offseason movements no long a pressing need imo but definitely would be an upgrade. C: Chidobe Awuzie RCB – imo one of the best right corners in this year’s draft and immediate defensive improvement.  Experienced at playing the outside, slot and even safety.   Round 2 - #46 A:  Kevin King RCB – Darius Butler replacement that can play FS as well. B: Marcus Williams FS – At some point we need to address FS needs.    Round 3 - #80 A: Duke Riley LB – early on my watch list and have enjoyed seeing his draft stock rise. Duke should give RILB Edwin Jackson competition as a full-time starter. B: Joe Mixon RB – Would be a draft steal to obtain a talented running back here.  Although am holding any RB projections off until next year’s draft with futures on RB Saquon Barkley.   Round 4 - #122 A: Jack Butt TE – obviously a glaring need to add roster depth with a talented TE B: Pat Elflein C/OG – offensive line depth   Round 4 - #137 A: Ryan Switzer Slot WR – Someone needs to push Phillip Dorsett as a full time starter. B:  George Kittle TE – team need to add roster depth   Round 4 - #144 A: Lorenzo Jerome SS – imo Lorenzo has been overlooked and is one of the better strong safeties with the skill set to be a Day 1 starter. B:  Matt Milano LILB – we need roster help on our left interior side.  Matt has a strong chance to be a full-time starter when healthy.   Round 5 - #158 A: Josh Carraway OLB B: Danny Isidora ROG   Free Agents: 3 choices: James Quick Slot WR (2013 MVP U.S. Army All American Bowl) Joey Ivie NT Marcus Oliver ILB - multiple defensive player of the game accolades
    • Not even gonna say anything about this
    • It's having a personal opinion... Why would I put somebody at #1 if I don't think they're the #1 there? Sure it causes controversy among this forum, but I have better things to do than to fake my opinions
    •   Reddick is my biggest draft crush as an ILB/OLB hybrid. Although Lattimore being available might just be too good to pass up.
