Move on.

 

There will be some good options available..

Stafford, Darnold, Rodgers, Trubisky, who knows what teams might do.

Rodgers? Why on earth would GB trade the league MVP? He's been durable the past few years. And an elite QB. He's only 37. I could see him playing into his 40's like Brees and Brady.

I would like to say, no matter what happens, we are truly lucky that we had Rivers play for us this year. He may not have been the answer, time will tell, but the way he competed, the way he carried h

Rivers no Turnovers, 309 Yards, 2 TD's. We gave this game away. I haven't been this disappointed since losing the SB in 2009. We had them beat, I am sick right now.

Id have zero problem with Phil coming back if Eason isnt ready. We damn sure didnt lose bc of Phil.

He's been talked about a lot as a trade option. A lot of Lions insiders and reporters are suggesting the Lions move on from him. Kinda similar to the Matt Ryan situation. 

If Rivers retires im ok sending 1 for Stafford. If they want more hang up and draft QB.

It's the way we lost, I just felt like we gave it away. I thought we outplayed them. I hate the season is over. I feel bad for Phil because I thought he played well. I feel bad for our team. Great group of guys. Fun season.

It’s not the players that gave it away. That’s why I absolutely hate this loss

Yeah I do not want to overpay for him. I don't know why, but I honestly have a good feeling about Eason. His arm talent is underrated.

He will most likely be the backup in 21

I wonder if we let Brissett play on a team friendly one year deal. I don't think it's that crazy. 

 

 

If that happens Eason will be 3 again cause there's no way Brissett is starter

Question is. Who is the alternative?

 

We were spoiled by great QB play for like 20 years.

 

Now we are seeing what it's like to be most other franchises without a QB.

Sure, the question of the alternative is challenging. But I would prefer a younger and more mobile qb. 

 

I don't think you should stick with a 38 year old qb whos play is clearly declining and you know tjat he won't be good enough to win it all. 

I would rather take a shot at a younger qb. If hes not good enough, ok.... Move on.... nothing lost:headspin:

I don't know, it seems to be the unpopular opinion around here but I think the team values 7 more than we do, by a lot.

No to Stafford & Ryan type QB's. And no to Brissett. We know what these guys are. They aren't terrible. But they aren't game changers.

 

I want us to either draft a QB or start Eason next season. Worst case scenario is Eason sucks and we draft high in 2022.

I agree. I was just wondering if anyone could offer names.

 

Personally I'm in favor of starting Eason next year. Or drafting a QB this year. If we suck next year at least we know who the answer isn't.

 

No band aids like 28-3 Ryan or Stafford. No Brissett.

 

We know these guys. They are what they are. All are either old, limited, or just meh.

 

I don't want to be stuck in the middle. That team that might contend for a postseason spot. But doesn't have a legit SB shot. And is drafting in the middle.

If we want another season like this year, then bring Rivers back. I think he’s played “decent” enough but not sure if he can take us the distance. I think fans want to see Eason. But if he’s not ready we’re going to need to sign a FA Vet and it could be Rivers again. 


That’s the correct answer. 
 

I think Rivers taking that Hail Mary play (when everyone knows JB has the better arm) means that was his last play.

I'm fine with him being backup not starter

Really hope he retires. I don't see how they resign him after not being able to throw the ball 40 yards on the hail mary. 

I was actually surprised Jacoby wasn't brought in to throw the Hail mary.

Probably means nothing but thought it was worth noting, Terry Bradshaw said he’s hearing Rivers is done in Indy but could keep playing.

how would he know that

probably not because even if it came down to him and EasonI think Eason would win out.

 

But there are a few teams I could see him starting on. 

He could start in Cincy cause it appears Burrow might be out til 22

I could also see him starting for WAS, CAR, NE, NO, (could backup TB12 in tampa as well) I mean the dude is gonna get his shot. I'm sure of it.

    • You are correct!.....I must have looked too quickly at the trade value chart    
    • Zach Von Rosenberg ...quite the story     https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/2021-nfl-drafts-unlikeliest-prospect-zach-von-rosenberg-30-and-already-a-millionaire-draws-buzz-as-punter/  
    • Instead of starting a new thread, I figured I would just post this here. It is a good thread to do so. After analyzing every team we have had since the 2000 season, looking at statistics of each of those years, talent we had on those teams, and by my memory's eye sight I ranked them from worst to best, here they are: 21. 2011 (2-14) - worst team 20. 2017 (4-12) 19. 2019 (7-9) 18. 2001 (6-10) 17. 2015 (8-8) 16. 2016 (8-8) 15. 2010 (10-6) 0-1 playoffs 14. 2000 (10-6) 0-1 playoffs 13. 2002 (10-6) 0-1 playoffs 12. 2012 (11-5) 0-1 playoffs 11. 2013 (11-5) 1-1 playoffs 10. 2018 (10-6) 1-1 playoffs 9. 2008 (12-4) 0-1 playoffs 8. 2020 (11-5) 0-1 playoffs 7. 2014 (11-5) 2-1 playoffs/AFC Title Game app. 6. 2007 (13-3) 0-1 playoffs 5. 2004 (12-4) 1-1 playoffs/Manning 49 TD's that season 4. 2003 (12-4) 2-1 playoffs/AFC Title Game app. 3. 2009 (14-2) 2-1 playoffs/AFC Champions 2. 2005 (14-2) 0-1 playoffs, more talent than the 2009 team. 1. 2006 (12-4) 4-0 playoffs/SuperBowl Champions, best because they closed.   -Interesting since the 2000 season, our regular season record is 208-128. Playoff record is 13-15. The 208 regular season wins rank 4th most out of 32 franchises, the 13 playoff wins rank 7th most out of 32 franchises. The franchises that are ahead of us in those categories are: Regular Season wins 1. New England Patriots = 244 regular season wins   2. Pittsburgh Steelers = 217 regular season wins   3. Green Bay Packers = 210 regular season wins    4. Indianapolis Colts = 208 regular season wins   Playoff wins 1. New England Patriots = 30   2. Baltimore Ravens = 16   3. Pittsburgh Steelers = 15   4. Green Bay Packers = 14, Philadelphia Eagles = 14, Seattle Seahawks = 14   7. Indianapolis Colts = 13    SB wins since the 2000 season 1. New England Patriots = 6   2. Pittsburgh Steelers = 2, Baltimore Ravens = 2, NY Giants = 2, Tampa Bay Buccaneers = 2    6. Indianapolis Colts have 1, tied with the New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos, Philadelphia Eagles, KC Chiefs.   I guess our franchise over the last 21 seasons (2000-2020) going by these categories would be considered great. Something some should think about before criticizing our franchise or Mr Irsay.      My long historic post for the morning 
    • Heres another Ojulari type of guy that i like. His name is Malcolm Koonce. Same issue although i think hes a tad bit bigger than Ojulari in terms of weight. Comes from the same school as Khalil Mack. Actually built and moves like Mack. They list him as more of a 3-4 backer but he is so quick and agile i think it could work in a 4-3. Justin Houston type. He was in the Senior Bowl but i dont have clips. I think Buffalo ran the same 3-4 type system when Mack was there and he ended up going to the Raiders plaing in a 4-3 system so it could possibly work. Koonce is really quick.          
    • I really like that and tried something similar in in PFF's simulator.    I'd rather go WR or TE with the 3rd pick though and pick up a promising CB later, but, I confess, I don't value CB very much so that's probably just me.
