  1. I'm not sure why we are even looking at Fischer at this point. Leno is a solid LT who unexpectedly become available. He has no injury issues, is younger, was released because of cap space not a failure to perform and has history with our coaching staff. There is no reason to believe Fischer will return to his pre injury level of play and some doubt he'll be ready for the start of the season. Again, as with Dayo, we're hearing a lot of 'Ifs' about Fischer. Let's just take Leno, sign him to a 3-4 year contract and move on. The guy had a PFF rating of 80+ over the last half or so of last season i
  2. Since we don't have a LT will probably need three of four QBs this season.
  3. I feel so much better now knowing we've drafted our all pro LT of the future.
  4. " Below-average height and bulk for the TE position. Lacks true blocking ability and will have to be hidden on assignments. — Inadequate play strength to sustain in the run game and will have issues vs. physical defenders getting hands on him in the passing game. — Limited route tree that will need continued polish if he's going to be a true matchup TE." Seems like a typical pick for this draft. A work out warrior with little on field production that needs to be coached up, a player trying to comeback from a career ending injury and now a so so undersized TE with a
  5. Awful lot of, 'If he wasn't injured he'd been a first rounder' crap on here. The fact is he is injured. Severely injured. A torn Achilles is often career ending. So to rationalize this pick by alluding to where he would have gone if healthy is worthless because he's not healthy. He may not even play next year. If we had taken him in the 5th or 6th round or as UDFA then that argument is valid, but we didn't. We took him in the second. That changes everything. Hooker and Turay had talent, but were often injured in college. Hooker is gone and Turay is hanging on by his surgically repaired ankle,
  6. Okay, we take a workout warrior DE that doesn't show on the field in the first round and then again pass on a LT to take another DE who is recovering from a torn Achilles who may not play next year in the second. Wentz may be on the phone to Philly asking to come back. These are the types of picks we skewered Grigson for. Maybe we can find a project LT in the 5th-6th round or a UDFA.
  7. I haven't heard this much rationalizing in years. We've gone from which of these top LT prospects should we take in the first round to we didn't really need a LT, and anyway they weren't as good as advertised. If we learned nothing else from the Grigson/Luck fiasco we should have at least learned you can't build an OL with other people's aging/injured cast offs. How soon we forget. We traded to bring in a rehab project at QB, who everyone agrees needs protection, and then don't get the most important part of the that protection puzzle. I hope Eason is ready. Oh and who did we draft

  9. Watched the video and saw nothing. He was seldom a factor in any play shown. Was easily pushed up field, and often looked lost. Don't know about his measurables, but if that was supposed to be a highlight film I put him at a 3rd-4th rounder not #21 for a team in need of their LT of the future. This looks like another Werner pick to me. Not one of Ballard's best. Big time project at best when we need a first day guy at LT.
  10. Don't get it. All the LTs we were hoping might fall to us did and we pick a developmental pass rusher who needs to be coached up and may be ready to really shine NEXT year. The one thing we really needed was a blind side protector and had a great selection and passed on all of them. Hope Carson still gas some wheels because he's going to be running for his life. I guess we learned nothing from the Luck years.
  11. Wentz has been injured every year he's been in the league. Hasn't finished a season I don't think. And don't think he was ever considered to be the sure thing Andrew was coming out of college. And has done a lot to prove he's not as talented since he's been in Philly. Last year he was benched in favor of a second round rookie.
  12. Why is a guy who has played one season against D2 schools, only one game last year, considered to be so alluring? We have a guy on the team who played two season against D1 competition with some success and nobody thinks he's good enough. I don't get it. What does this guy have other than good PR that makes him worth 2 firsts and a second? If he was available at 21 or maybe early in the second I might consider it, though I'd rather we get our stud LT at 21, but trading away that much for someone with a skinny resume'? Not feeling it.
  13. I'd take Trubisky over an expensive oft injured Wentz. To me Wentz is Luck without the talent and way too pricey.
  14. Walker is probably gone anyway. He wants playing time he's not going get here. And Houston has been good, but his production was down this year and he's not getting any younger. I'd let him go if it allowed me to sign Watt.
  15. I'd give him three years $16M per with a nice signing bonus and some incentives. Release Houston and let Walker walk. I think we could afford it if he was interested. I'd at least call him ask if he'd like to have lunch. With Buckner he wouldn't have to be the center of the attention on D. Watt, Leonard and Buckner would be a pretty formidable group. We wouldn't need to look too hard right now for a edge if JJ was here. We spend draft capital on LT and corner in the first two rounds. People always say top edge guys never hit the market. Well one just did. Maybe not the JJ of 5 years ago, but p
