Great. One more concussion for Leonard after the trouble he had clearing protocol earlier in the year? WHY ARE OUR ALL PROS AND PRO BOWLERS IN THERE IN THIS DOG % AWFUL GAME? 

Because they get paid to play the games. It’s not like we are concerned for a playoff spot. The players have to play a game here. It’s just part of things.

Something gota be done here. This team has so many injuries year after year.  Always one of the most injured teams. This has to be looked into.

 

It’s just been mostly unlucky concussions today. 

 

I agree on your overall point, but guys are just getting popped in the head today.

They get paid to play or to sit. They get paid to do what their coaches/gms want them to do. And the coaches and management get paid to evaluate risk/reward and make appropriate decisions. In what world does the risk-reward calculation end on the side of playing them in those last two games? You are not improving your chances of a superbowl here. You are diminishing them. 

 

Leonard already talked about how scary his concussion was and there were times he didn't know if he will be able to play again. Now it seems like he has another concussion. That's 2 this year. and one of them at least was pretty bad. At 4-5 concussions players nowadays start thinking about retiring. So again... how did risk-reward calculation worked out today? 

 

Nelson concussion, Leonard concussion, second of the season, Khari injured... Why? What do we win here?

    • It ws 1.7% drop rate, which is still amazing. We took Josh Downs last year who only had a 2% drop rate for his draft.
    • Correction...............had Gilmore wanted to stay. 
    • Here is mine, but I will only give you my 1st round draft pick. I have to study the draft more to give you 7 picks. Some of you guys are out of my league and I even follow College Football quite a bit.    1. Franchise Tag Pittman - he will be happy making that kind of money over 1 year.   2. Re-sign Moore to a good 3 yr deal.   3. Re-sign Stewart to a good 3 yr deal. He can finish his career here.   4. Re-sign Sanchez to a good 3 yr deal   5. Re-sign Blackmon to a good 3 yr deal.   6. Re-sign Ronnie Harrison to a good 2 yr deal.   7. - I have decided to let Minshew walk, I hate it, but it is time to put all our marbles in AR's bag. Either AR is the real deal, or he isn't. He has had 1 year to play a little and then sit a lot at the same time. He has had 1 year to learn from Minshew and get a feel for Shane. He is now 100% heathy, I want it to be his team, no QB controversy + Minshew is going to want around 10 Mill a year after last season. Too much money. He was only making 3.5 Mill last season.   8. Moss walks as well, Taylor is the man, we just need someone average that can spell him from time to time and carry it maybe 8-10 times a game. In Shane's system, he can make an average RB look good at times.    9. Pinter walks - he is going to want more money.   10. Tyquan Lewis walks, that extra 2 Mill could help into signing a big Free Agent. Tough loss here but I want Mike Evans. I am just saving a little money here and there where I can.   11. Let McKenzie walk.   12. Release Ogletree.   13. Sign Mike Evans to a big 3 yr deal! He is 30 years and that is my cut off point to signing anyone to a big deal but he is a healthy 30. Played in every game last season and dominated. He has at least 2 great years left in him. When we tried this with Andre Johnson, Johnson was 34 and washed. This would be much different, + Evans is younger in that type of scenario.    14. I like your Tyrod Taylor idea, every team needs a back-up QB that is at least average as a whole. He would be cheap. He could win a game or 2 if AR missed 2 games. Maybe sign him to 1 yr, for 5 Mill. That is about what he was making in NY.    15. Draft Brock Bowers at #15! The TE that AR needs.   16. Draft the best CB on the board that is left with our 2nd round pick and gamble with it and hope he pans out. I can't say who that player will be because we won't know until draft night. 
    • I agree 100% and that is why I do not see us using number 15 on any of those top corners - and I agree on Tampa as an option later in the draft as well as Cam Hart (Notre Dame) and Khryee Jackson (Oregon)
    • Had we kept Gilmore, we would have won the division, but hindsight is hindsight unfortunately. He may of even made a 2 game difference, not a 1 game difference. We could have been 11-6 because our secondary would have been much stronger and it was our weak point all season.
