  1. “I spoke with Jim Irsay before today’s game and he told me that his team, really wanted to win this one.”
  2. Just the baby GOAT and a Detroit Tigers 37th round draft pick.
  3. So Mr. ForTheColture Insider is really out here trying to say that barely over 10% of our players are vaccinated while other teams are hitting 90? I wouldn’t doubt that we’re below average for whatever reason but I don’t believe him or his “sources” for a second that there’s THAT large of a discrepancy. This dude just throws crap at the wall.
  4. Like Quenton Nelson. That guy’s pretty good; if you like 6’5”, 330 pound guards, mauler, pancake aficionado.
  5. It's too bad that NFL G-league busted out last year because the Jags would be a solid .500 team if they played in it. What an absolute joke. Urban Meyer will 'retire' in two years because of 'health concerns' and in four years he'll be the head coach at LSU or some crap.
  6. He is pretty much my dream pick at 21 but I don't see any chance he falls that far unless a video surfaces of him hitting a bong through a gas mask.
  7. Cosmi if those are my options but I’m firmly in team trade down. I like Radunz and would like to get him bottom of the first and gain an extra pick since we’re a little short on picks and are pretty much barren on the edge.
  8. I’m glad we didn’t go the trade up route because the only guy I’d have wanted is Wilson and that would have cost a stupid amount. Free agency would have most likely played out a lot different and I think we’d have seen a serious offer at Trent Williams and some receiving threats. Defense would have been an even more band aid unit than it’s looking as it is.
  9. Let’s not overthink this guys. He’s not being brought in to be our starting LT, he’s a camp body who will hopefully get beaten out by Holden who showed some promise in his limited action.
  10. I want to see Ballard make a few moves and I’m still confident he will, but the Titans signing Bud Dupree to such a stupidly high deal is a net win for us.
  11. First of all, I'd like to give a thousand props to @stitches and @Caleb3502 for their excellent mocks that I would love to see play out in the coming weeks. I usually do mine a few weeks earlier and a hell of a lot more college scouting than I did this year, but life has prevented that. Like stitches, I am using thedraftnetwork, spotrac, and overthecap, as well as the pff big board as a guide for cap projectinos/contract projections and to see where others have guys rated. CAP SPACE - $48.9M RESTRUCTURE Ryan Kelly - saves $7M Grover Stewart - saves $3M CUT Jack Doyle - saves 4.4M - I love Jack Doyle but this is a business, and I can't justify keeping him on the roster and taking reps away from MAC who has proven to be everything that everyone thought Doyle was. If there was a trade offer on the table I'd jump at that for sure but I don't think there's a market. CAP SPACE - $63.3M RE-SIGN Mo Alie-Cox - 2Y/8M - The guy was studly in the first half of the year and then kinda disappeared with the snaps being so divvied up between him, Doyle, and Burton. I want to see Mo Cox. Zach Pascal - 1Y/3.5M - Second round tender TJ Carrie - 1Y/2M - He performed admirably when called upon last year so he gets a salary bump and chance to compete for an expanded role. George Odum - 1Y/1M - Special teams ace, just don't ask him to play safety. Ashton Dulin - 1Y/540K ERFA Taylor Stallworth 1Y/750K ERFA I'd like to keep Rhodes and Hilton but I think they find more money elsewhere. Rhodes also scares me because last time he got paid he played like a practice squad player. I'd love for TY to be a Colt lifer but I don't think it's happening and I've accepted that now. I'd like Houston to stay another year but I'll get over it if he doesn't. Autry is a total JAG to me and I'd like to see Tyquan slide into his role. CAP SPACE - $51.5M FREE AGENTS Trey Hendrickson DE - 3Y/30M - Fits the Ballard size requirement and has some nice sack production. I am honestly pretty lukewarm about the EDGE players in free agency despite what everyone else says but I think we have to bring one in and he represents my favorite option there. Jonnu Smith TE - 4Y/36M - Homie will fit the Reich offense perfectly in the Ebron/Burton type role, he'll just be better at it. Plus we get the added bonus of sticking it to the Titans. Rashard Higgins WR - 4Y/24M - Not the sexy signing everyone wants but I think he'd be a solid, under the radar signing. Once ODB went down and he got some opportunities he put up some good numbers. Great YPC so I think he could stretch the field and open things up for Pittman in the intermediate and Campbell underneath. Quinton Dunbar CB - 2Y/12M - I don't see him getting a huge contract after his off field shenanigans last year. His play went from elite to utter trash in Seattle but I'm gonna put some blame on the culture they seem to be cultivating out there. I think he could have a Rhodes-esque resurgence here with Eberflus. Nice, long corner too. Ahkello Witherspoon CB - 1Y/3M - Graded out very well with PFF just didn't have much playing time. Has all the measurables Ballard likes and I'd love to have him here playing some press D. Giving him the same contract Rhodes got and let's see how it plays out. Tashaun Gipson S - 1Y/1M - Need depth with Wilson walking. Tanoh Kpassognon DT - 1Y/1.5M - Impressive length. Not much more to say about him but he fits the Ballard mold and I'd like to see if a change in scheme is what he needs. Kind of fits the Autry/Margus Hunt role. Roderick Johnson OT- 1Y/2M - Has had playing time and hasn't looked terrible. My idea is to bring in vets to compete on that left side and see which one sticks because Green and Clark ain't it. Julie'n Davenport OT - 1Y/1M - The other vet. CAP SPACE - $13M DRAFT Trade our first for Buffalo's 1st and 3rd (30 and 93) 1/30 - Dillon Radunz LT - I think with an NFL weight training regimen he will be a stud and a great replacement for Castonzo. 2/54 - Dyami Brown WR - Field stretcher with solid route running abilities. 3/93 - Payton Turner DE - Another size and length prospect that Ballard would love, and hey, at least this edge rusher isn't in the second round. :) 4/128 - Benjamin Cleveland OG - Let's just maul people in the run game with this big boy. 5/166 - Alim McNeil DT - PFF loves the guy but all the boards seem to have him dropping pretty far. Big time run stuffer. 6/206 - Cameron Sample DE - Improved by leaps and bounds for his senior year and I like his size. 7/249 - Sam Ehlinger QB - Stash him on the PS and see if he develops. QB - Wentz, Eason, Ehlinger (maybe) RB - Taylor, Hines, Wilkins WR - Pittman, Campbell, Higgins, Brown, Pascal, Dulin TE - Smith, Alie-Cox, Togiai LT - Radunz, Davenport LG - Nelson, Pinter C - Kelly RG - Glowinski, Cleveland RT - Smith, Johnson DE - Hendrickson, Turay, Lewis, Turner, Sample DT - Buckner, Stewart, McNeil, Kpassognon, Stallworth LB - Leonard, Okereke, Adams, Franklin, Speed, Glasgow CB - Moore, Ya-Sin, Dunbar, Witherspoon, Carrie, Rogers S - Blackmon, Willis, Gipson, Odum
  12. McGlinchey would PROBABLY be a decent left tackle.....notice two key words; “probably” and “decent”. He has not played LT in several years, since college, and on the right side he has been decent. I would say not quite to the level that our own, less heralded right tackle has played but fairly close. Trading for Buckner, an absolute stud at what Ballard seems to consider the most important position on the defense was far more prudent than taking a gamble on an above average right tackle that we’d be asking to move to the other side. I would much rather bring in some cheap camp competition and draft and develop our own. There are other options than going all in on one spot when we’ve got a number of key holes to fill.
  13. 1. Trevor Lawrence 2. Zach Wilson 3. Jamar Chase 4. Penei Sewell 5. Jalen Waddle 6. Kyle Pitts 7. Devanta Smith 8. Caleb Farley 9. Justin Fields 10. Rashawn Slater 11. Micah Parsons 12. Patrick Surtain Jr 13. Kwity Paye 14. Christian Darrisaw 15. Trevon Moehrig 16. Jaycee Horn 17. Jaelen Phillips 18. Christian Barmore 19. Rashod Bateman 20. Rondale Moore
  14. I look at McGlinchey the same way I do Orlando Brown. Neither would be cheap in draft capital, very soon after they arrive we would have to pay them a lot of money, and neither has played LT at the pro level. I think McGlinchey could do it but is that a worthy gamble based on how much it’s going to cost? I’d much rather bring in a cheapish vet, work to develop Holden, and draft one on day one or two.
  15. Big Sexy Q is my vote but Nyheim seems like an awesome dude. I like him as a player but he’s a real great locker room personality and I’m not sure it gets brought up much here.
  16. Landing Watt would make Autry redundant. AQM would be a higher priority for me anyway but maybe he’s overvalued himself.
  17. I am not offended. Watson is elite, Lawrence is the best QB prospect in a generation, and Tannehill has finally lived up to his draft status as a first rounder with Tennessee. Our guy was just traded away because he played like hot garbage last year. Still, that’s where we are now but the offseason hasn’t even begun yet. Let’s see where we are this time next year when Watson appears to be completely tapped out in Houston and Lawrence has yet to be drafted let alone show up to a mini camp for perennial punching bag Jacksonville.
  18. If he meant Hopkins then he didn’t get the first OR last name right. But I think it’s more likely he meant Desean Jackson. Hopkins could not be described as ‘just a speed WR whereas Jackson probably could.
  19. 1. Cut Doyle and restructure Kelly to lower his cap this year. I’m not a cap guy but I would imagine there’s a way to give some more guaranteed money in exchange for some cap relief in ‘21. 2. Re-sign TY, MAC, Carrie, AQM, and Pascal. As much as I liked Rhodes last year he scares the hell out of me if we sign him for anything more than one year. I worry if he gets paid again he reverts back to 18/19 Rhodes. Plus the position is more volatile than others and he’s on the wrong side of 30. 3. Sign Carl Lawson, Ahkello Witherspoon, Hunter Henry, and Curtis Samuel. Henry and Carson would mesh well and Carson loves the TE. The other three have played well during their young careers and are deserving of larger roles than their respective teams have given them so far. 4. Trade back a little bit in the first and draft Dillon Radunz. Later draft targets for me; Paulson Adebo, Ronnie Perkins, Tommy Tremble, and Alim McNeill.
  20. Have a bad OLine? Just take the fourth longest time to throw in the league after trademarking a corny catchphrase and then throw everyone else under the bus when it doesn’t work out.
  21. His point about there not being a middle when it comes to QB play leads me to believe JB is less ‘in the mix’ for being a starter than he’s saying. JB’s market has surely gone down from the $21M he made this year but he is the textbook definition of ‘middling’, and honestly I’d prefer to swing for the fences rather than drawing a walk with the QB position. Totally cool with him coming back in a backup role if the pay is closer to a Mariota/Dalton level salary. Also please don’t trade for Wentz for the love of God.
  22. Both Bama receivers have a Marvin level of potential but we have no chance of getting either, especially after we use our first for Stafford. I don’t think we have to draft one high either. Robinson or Golladay has to be a target in free agency in my opinion.
  23. He’s not been overly impressive after his injury that caused him to miss 2018. He had potential but hasn’t lived up to it, even in the Rivers’ offense that loved to target the TE. It would be a big meh for me and I hope we wouldn’t get into a bidding war to get him. Much rather get into one for Kenny Golladay since Stanford likes him so much.
  24. Anyone think there’s a chance he leaves San Fran? They’ve got a lot of decisions to make and can’t franchise tag him, as well as a very limited amount of cap space. We could certainly outbid them. Imagine a left side of him and Big Q with Jonathan Taylor running behind them. We would easily have the best line in the game.
