This is a very uninformed post.
Regarding AV. They brought in kickers two different times for an open competition and AV out kicked them. And people forget he AV started off rough, they brought in kickers, AV outkicked them and then played well over the next few games, then he struggled again and they brought in kickers again and AV outkicked them, then when he struggled again the kicker they wanted became available and they signed him and put AV on IR. Not really much more a team can do with competition.
Regarding JB. If you cannot answer these questions then you do not know if there was competition or not. How did all the QBs do in the game plan tests every week? How did all the other QBs do in the film room? Did they ask good questions, did they see the correct things? Were they able to pick out coverage schemes and anticipate where the opposing player would be before the snap? Even things like did they follow the team diet all goes into evaluating a player during the season. Like I said, if you can't answer those questions then any comments about preaching competition but not following through are coming from a position of ignorance.
Burrow is the only NFL ready QB in this draft. We’re too far down to have a chance at him. So anyone else won’t be an upgrade at QB. I’d trade back a few spots grab a 2nd first rounder for next season, and then take a DT this year.
You and I think alike, Gramz. The first thing I noticed were the two people sitting next to him and thought " woah! No way are those are his kids. Are they already that old??! ", haha.
Still waiting for Peyton to find his way to a permanent career in the broadcasting booth. Great ambassador and spokesperson the league.
