Des Bryant says he likes his attitude, with no specifics about what he likes (maybe he likes his leadership style or how he holds himself) and somehow that alone makes Love undraftable in your eyes?

 

 If he has a bad attitude, it'll come out in the predraft process. Just stop the dramatic nonsense.

 

If you don't like Love as a prospect, you just don't like him, but don't act like some off-hand comment by a player you perceive as bad news suddenly shatters your perception of Love. If you like him, you like him and if you don't, you don't.

LOL.  It was a fun comment about attitude.  At least I thought so.  My comment was more a shot on Dez than anything really to do with Love.

 

Dez comparing Love to Mahomes is not a problem. I get it.

 

However, not sure how Dez has a bead on Love's attitude.  I haven't read anything about his attitude.  Well, very little.....

 

Just wondering, I wonder if Dez likes Jake Fromm's attitude, since there seems to be plenty of material talking about it, or would go out of his way to say nice things about it.

I think he is just talking about Love playing with swag.

IK.  

 

I think it would be in Love's favor if it was somebody other than Dez.  Dez was known as one of those players who was great, but the attitude also allowed people to root for his failure. 

 

Even Cowboy fans.

 

I'm hoping Dez doesn't see the same kind of swag in Love's attitude

No people need to learn to read. You can support a player and defend him from over the top stuff but still realize we need a change. 

umm you need to remember what you said like 500 times you didnt want some young guy cause they would waste our talent lol

 

but I would expect nothing less from you you have flipped on stuff you say every single week so this isn't a surprise

Tua is expected to make a full recovery. i know a lot of people are worried about the hip, but i would not be with that prognosis 

 

hes going to declare and is the best QB imo that we have a shot at imo

 

 

 

According to a DR being interviewed the other day they wont know for sure until after draft ... right now its not a prognosis its a guess.

I just saw a crazy tweet. It said Lions want to draft their next QB. Then it went on to say jerry Jones meant with the lions about getting stafford. So that would mean they wouldn’t sign Dak. That seems really far fetched. But if your the lions and the lack of success you have had and Stafford being injured you have to wonder if their is some truth to it. At 3 they can have their choice of QB except Burrow.

What about a compensatory pick for Andrew Luck leaving? Will we get a pick for that ?

Nope. He retired. Compensatory picks are for players that have contracts run out and sign elsewhere. The more they sign for (and play, and produce... there's a specific formula but I don't know what it is) the higher the pick, maxing out after the standard 3rd round ends.

 

Retired players do not count towards compensatory picks.

The defense struggled in both run and pass defense this year so with the 13th pick Colt's select the unblockable force in DT Derrick Brown (Auburn).  Another option would be a young lockdown corner CJ Henderson (Florida) to play opposite Kenny Moore II.

 

Everyone keeps talking about needing to replace our QB but I say give it two years and bring Luck out of retirement while building up the team.  So Round 2 am looking to continue to add  young players where a QB can step in and the team can still be playoff competitive.  With that being said here are my Round 2 picks:

 

2a) OT Josh Jones (Houston) / TE Hunter Bryant (Washington)

2b) TE Jacob Breeland (Oregon) / OT Prince Tega Wanogho (Auburn)

 

As for the 2020 Free Agency have one wish and that is to secure SDE Arik Armstead.  Armstead, Brown and Houston would immediately improve our run defense.  If Brown is not available in Round 1 than we have to pair Henderson with Moore who when healthy played some of the best football of his career because Desir was not the answer in 2019.

"Bringing Luck out of retirement" is not a legitimate plan a front office can run with. They have zero control over that. It's not their choice.  Ignoring the QB need this year just means we have the same need next year. As nice a thought as it is, there is no way you can actually build your team around the premise that you'll be able to pull someone out of retirement.

Lucks dad had two interviews. He said he does not feel Luck has any hankering to come back. It seems he is very happy with his life.

Thought it is a bit ironic how Luck's dad comes out with interviews soon after my posting but going back to the Round 1 & 2 draft I stand by my picks.  Luck is a new proud father and living his dream of parenthood.  Good for him but Luck is still young 30 something and has a legitimate chance to come back and play for another 10 years if so desired.  I just don't see a need for a splashy QB to replace Jacoby this season.  A solid shutdown defense will keep your team in games even with mediocre QB play (think Bills).   Build the team up with players and a future QB can step in help advance a team already making playoff runs.

With all the close games a good QB would of turned the close losses into wins and the wins into bigger wins. A good QB you can probably count a couple more TD a game. Why put all that stress on your defense.

Preach! The church of Jordan Love is in session! 


Knowing we’re still a couple of years away from being a SB contender (expect us to be a division contender end of this year), I’ll enjoy the ride of the draft, free agency and starting 0-0 like everyone when the season starts.

 

I’ll be excited for every draft pick we make. :)

    • https://www.nfl.com/news/bill-tobin-longtime-nfl-executive-dies-at-age-83   He drafted some all time great players like Harrison, and of course is famous for his verbal match with Mel Kiper. RIP!
    • Then begs the question. Do u want to say draft a MJH at 4 and turn around in 4 years or would u say draft Turner and pay him 30mill in 4 years? All day every day for the franchise rush end. I am not a big believer in 30 mill for a wr. Reid is a fantastic coach and look what he did with Hill.
    • I literally just posted that clip, it's where the conversation about QBs started.
    • Funny you brought this up.  I just listened to an interview Ballard did today with Rich Eisen.  He asked him if he has given any thought on how many quarterbacks will be taken before our pick and how many does he think.  He said sure we go through those evaluations.  It helps us with for planning purposes.  He asked him how many.  4 or 5 or 6?   He laughed out loud at 6.  He said Rich if it’s 6 we will be so excited.  Let’s hope so.  He also said the draft board is not yet set.  Won’t be until the night before the draft.  He also said he has had multiple conversations with other GM’s concerning the draft.  Preparing themselves for opportunities that could take place.  And they will continue up until the draft starts.  He said trade conversations won’t really materialize until you are within three picks of any trade.  Giving you time to finalize it.  Interesting interview.  Oh he pretty much ruled out moving up for Harrison.   Going up into the top of the draft would be very costly for him he said.  Thinks he’s a great talent but he thinks he’s pretty much out of our reach.
    • I personally wouldn’t touch Williams with a 10 foot pole. He seems like a distraction and cancerous. He may be Uber talented but I don’t feel like he is a winner, and don’t feel like his heart is in it. I think he gets the bag and just sets it on cruise control. There is absolutely nothing to base this off of aside from my gut feeling.  Maye Daniels  Penix Nix McCarthy   Maye is your prototype passer and I think his deficiencies are easily fixed with good coaching.   Daniels seems the most limited to me, proficient and will be very dependent on where he goes.    Will always have a soft spot for Penix, he throws such a pretty deep ball. His 40 time should have opened some eyes.   Nix is probably the safest pick IMO. I think he’s got the tools to fit nearly any offense. Has the athleticism, arm talent and I think he’s got the between the ears to excel in most offenses.   I see the appeal with McCarthy, he was as unselfish as they come allowing the run game to shine instead of checking to pass plays. I think his ceiling is a solid game manager.
