would this be a good idea?


Recommended Posts

having a plan in FA that will work with our draft that only seeks to solve 2 problems  (note not 2 positions but 2 problems)1

for example: the running game/pass protection: we would need a great rb therefore Barkley first round

we in this case would also need to use our 2nd pick on best G on the board

this will make our priority in FA the best G and RT

3rd pick then should be best wr so as you can see we are really selling out on the O side of the ball

The Problem: if the browns take Barkley----then since we have invested in FA with starting G and RT we the should take Nelson 1st rd and take a rb with 2nd pick

 

next year we could work on the D side of the ball, but with this idea if we get Luck back healthy we should have a great O

Well....    at first glance, this jumps out at me....

 

You devote both the majority of both free agency and the draft to one side of the ball.   This early in the rebuilding of a franchise,  I don't see that happening.   

 

I wouldnt rule it out 100 percent, but pretty close.   Ballard's background is defense... the idea of him paying very little attention to that side of the ball seems pretty unlikely.

We also need to acquire a good wr in FA, we are very thin at the position. JMV said We only have 2 receivers currently on roster that have ever caught a pass in the nfl. And I'm assuming one of them is chester rogers.

The draft is a crapshoot. Maybe Chubb isn't there, or maybe Ballard gets a really good offer and trades down. We should go into free agency looking to fill needs.

Our GM has spoken in the exact opposite of this thinking.

Which part? Ballard has said he's open to trade downs, and I don't recall anything about free agency, other than he'd like to spend a lot of the cap.

He said he wanted to build through the draft. Naturally there has to be free agents signed to bring players in as band aids till those player develop.

Yes I do agree with that. I mentioned a 3rd wr but we would need to pick up a more elite wr in FA to go with TY and Chester (as 3rd or 4th option)

I think we should go after that MLB from the cowboys (forget his name) and spend our 4th 5th and 6th picks on D.

we will not be able to find an elite Edge Rusher in FA and Chubb may already be gone at our #3 but even if he is there we should go with the elite RB or Nelson to fix one side of the ball

think about it---if our O last year was able to score more points (and convert 3rd downs) we would have won more than 10 games

Dez may get cut. I know he's not the player he used to be and can be a headache. But if Ballard can't get a Big Top WR to compliment TY, what you think of Dez as a stopgap for a season or two?

Nah, we don't need any diva's on the roster. :D

    • I would, he's been a flag magnet as of late.
    • I agree.  We should make it at 10-6 but 9-7 looks iffy.  But we will likely see the #2 seed unless we ca win 11 games.  Eason should start if we miss the playoffs because Rivers will be done.  I think that would also see Jacoby back as the backup.  I can't see him being signed to start elsewhere, certainly not paid starter money.  
    • What a boss. Finds out he has cancer but still shows up to work on Sunday. Dude is gonna beat it and come back better than ever. 
    • Only if we lose 4 straight or are out of the playoffs.     We should finish no worse than 9-7.  That may not make the playoffs though as a wildcard.  We have to not only pick up 2 games over TN in 5 games, we'd also have to beat their AFC record.  We have 5 AFC games left, they have 3.  We have 2 less wins in the AFC.  We have to win 2 more than them, so if they say win 2 of their 3 AFC games, that is no possible without sweeping the season.  We are screwed on so many tie breakers right now  If we get eliminated from the playoffs, Eason should immediately finish the season unless he is simply not cutting it, then Brissett should because no playoffs, no Rivers.     I think we could win 3 of 5 however and be a Wildcard. I don't love our chances at 10-6 though with all the tiebreaker losses. Cleveland is likely in with their easy schedule. Baltimore has the tiebreaker. LV may play themselves out of it so that would leave us as the 6th or 7th seed.  KC or Buf/TN.  We may yet get revenge on TN.  I would pick us with a full roster rematch.  
    • You dislike Philip Rivers? You have since he was in college? Couldn't really tell from your post, but you're not Tiffany's high school boyfriend or anything are you?
