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.

    • I like the assessment. I would personally include Mingo in pleasant surprises, the guy is all around the ball all the time, he is rejuvinated it seems with us after lackluster play in Cleveland and NE. I also would include Mack in pleasant surprises as i believe we have only seen glimpses of the REAL Mack attack yet due to the coaches not playing him, i understand we have a proven veteran RB on the team, after this season when Gore leaves im fully confident Mack will assume the number 1 role and become a top 5 running back in the league. Then lastly i would put the Oline in dissapointments, as you stated nobody expected them to blow anyone away but i personally dont think anyone expected them to be as bad as the have been either.
    • Geathers was having a great season last year under monachino before his neck injury I think he will be fine he needs to play more man to man.
    •   ^^^ ban this user!! ^^^
    • It was the only show I watched or listened to on ESPN. Now that they are no longer a team I will have no need to tune into ESPN at all.
    • I think you have done a very nice assessment of our teams progress and where we are right now.  Most of the teams improvement has come on the defensive side of the ball coming from additions and improvement from our young players.  The loss of Luck for the year and the hurried assimilation of Brissett to the lineup certainly has not helped the offense meet our preseason expectations.  I read where Doyle was second in the league in receptions among TE's before the Pittsburgh game.  A stat that blew me away actually.  Who knows what a healthy Luck and a better OL  would have done for Moncrief and the rest of the WR's.   I think you have to congratulate the coaches for this progress and continued improvement that we have seen from this team.  They have gotten better and that's what we are looking for.  It might be a lost season record wise but if you are looking at player and overall team development you have to be pleased with the great progress they have made this year.  No one is happy with the record but you can not ignore the overall improvements that have been achieved.  Everyone is looking forward to new coaches next year but this years staff has done some pretty impressive work teaching and improving the overall contributions of our players.
