Practice Squad

Practice Squad (2/6)



  1. I don't agree. The deal was the deal. I don't think it obligated us to provide the Eagles with the best possible pick.
  2. If we get knocked out of play off contention I feel like we'd be dumb not to sit him. At the point we basically have the choice of keeping a high 1st round pick or not and I can't see any reason at all to give it up. If we go with the consensus on here and forego the 1st round pick I really hope we don't miss out on a player who could really help the franchise long term. It could do down as a historically bad decision.
  3. If the Titans win and we lose to the 49ers then I reckon its about 90% over. If we then lose to the Titans the week after it will be the final nail in the coffin.
  4. He's scouting for pass rushers. Which basically means seeing who has a high RAS score and long arms. He'll be back in about an hour.
  5. 3-2 over that spell looks most likely to me. Anything better than that and I'll be delighted especially if we managed to win the 3 division games along the way. I can't for the life of me see how we're consistent enough to win 5 on the bounce either in terms of decision making or play. It would basically be like calling 5 coinflips in a row at the moment.
  6. There's no other reason to rate them positively apart from the fact they have ended up here. If Turay or Lewis were playing at any other team would we look at them and describe them as "excellent"? I would highly doubt it. Every part of our defense is brutal. The front 4 get little to no pressure, the linebackers look lost and the secondary can't cover anybody. Not one bit of the defense looks above mediocre.
  7. It will never fail to surprise me how bang average (or worse!) players are supported on here simply because we happened to draft them. There's another thread on here about our pass rush stats and they are horrendous but Turay and Lewis are 'coming into their own'. Eek!
  8. That's an absolutely fine predictions but they are *s if they do so. We've got to make a decision after week 12 I reckon. If we're 4-8 or worse at that point and we don't sit Wentz that point we are dumb. Anything better and it's a debate. Unless we've contractually promised to play Carson if he's fit I don't knownwhy there would be any legal recourse.
  9. At this point it's not about Wentz though is it. We've already got him regardless of what we do. We've literally got an option to choose between a 1st round pick or a 2nd. If we choose to take the 2nd for absolutely no benefit then we deserve everything we get.
  10. The trade looks good because Wentz looks good I agree. Imagine with hindsight missing out on a defensive All-Pro for the sake of going 7-10 rather than 5-12 for example. We would be a laughing stock for years.
  11. They're going to have to bench him if we end up with a top 10 pick. If they don't it will end up going down as an historically bad decision, especially if the Eagles and up getting a really good player out of it.
  12. We're still going to end up with 25% - 30% of our cap just tied up in those 5 players if we resign Q the money he deserved and get an above average LT. Its a lot and I can't think of any successful teams who have won with resources allocated like that. There has to be a couple of "Chris Reeds" on the line somewhere.
  13. This is completely fair but it's missing the limitation of how you spend your resources. Back in 2019 the whole line cost us less than $25m. Assuming we sign Q for the reported ~$20m per year we'll be spending 66% more than that on just the three contracted players. How do we fill RG and the crucial poition of LT without having a disproportionate amount of the cap tied up just in one area? We can probably fill the guard positions with players like Reed who don't blow the bank but can we fill the LT position?
  14. To me it's almost the only way that would make some sort of sense from a team building perspective but it isn't going to happen. The problem that we're going to end up with though is that we'll either have to find a hidden gem at LT or be prepared to have a second (or third) tier player at that crucial position when it's easier to find one who plays competently such as Reed or Glow at guard. If we have the top paid left guard, 3rd highest paid center and 5th highest paid right guard then we're going to have to scrimp somewhere to share the resourced around. Are we better off doing that at guard or tackle?
  15. To some degree Chris Reed is exactly the problem we have with our team building. He's a million miles behind Nelson in pure talent terms but could he competently play left guard for 20% of the price? Absolutely. We would barely even notice the difference on 90% of snaps.
