I would laugh if the Foshinator is right on this haha 

I just don't understand Allbright's reasoning fot responding. Makes no sense, he literally is the only one that has anything to lose. Yet he jist continually seems to be taking shots at Fosh, So much so that Fosh changed his handle to troll him.

I seen that lol. Not sure if the Denver stuff is 100% true but I could see Denver being interested, they need a QB unless they think Lock is absolutely the man.

The best situation for us in the draft would be for Denver to get Wentz then the panthers get Darnold or something like that. It would help us if we wanted to move up in the draft.

I'm still hoping Ballard moves up for QB

That's not how it went down though.  Taylor was the starter and the plan was for Herbert to sit a year and learn until Taylor got his lung punctured by some witch doctor.  Then everyting changed...

 

1. Coach sets pre-season expectations that the vet will be the starter.

2. Rook plays well in camp, very good at the end of camp, has no preseason.

3. Vet plays bad in regular season

3. Vet get hurts

4. Rook plays better than vet...

 

That's how it went down.

 

You have to fully "believe" that the HC "fully" bought into Taylor's ability to lead the team. I don't fully buy it. It's simply coach speak which we all expected him to say given the situation. You never say "well, we're going to start Taylor, but he's got a limited ceiling, and we'll take it game by game, or revisit at a certain time".... even if it's true.

East Street, thank you for creating this thread. It has been successful in generating a lot of discussion. 

 

It is getting heavy with a lot of Twitter posts. 

 

I created a new thread and I moved your last comment over.

Cool. FYI, If this week slows down for me, I had planned on doing a part2 anyway with a new part-2 poll (especially if Wentz goes somewhere else and is off the board). Could you merge when I do that, or would that mess up the new poll?

Yes. Or I will lock the new one. Part 2 looks like it was created by you because I moved your last comment over there. :)

Awesome. Maybe I'll just create a bit later today if I have a longer window to focus. At least that would minimize the stuff lost.

Could this be true? 

 

"No. 2: Russell Wilson

The Seahawks are unhappy with Russell Wilson and Russell Wilson is unhappy with the Seahawks. Seattle has apparently gotten some calls from other teams, but for now they are adamant that Wilson is not available. Even at 32 years old, he'll continue to get a ton of interest."

If Russell is available, he would be #1 for me. What do you think @w87r, @stitches, @EastStreet

I'm a bit leery... I don't know what to do with this info. I feel like this is a trap. Like ... if Seahawks are willing to even entertain trading him, they must know something we don't. Wilson BTW didn't look like himself for the second half of the season. I wonder if getting old will hit him more than most QBs simply because he's reliant so much on his quickness and improvisational ability.

Nothing at all would surprise me this year lol. 

I do think the situation in Seattle is trending down, but I just can't see a realistic scenario of them parting ways with him. 

 

Personally, I like him, but I wouldn't want to break the bank on him either. I'm just really torn on the whole topic right now. I'm going to add a Q in the new poll on what strategy most are in favor of (in general, drafting early, trading up, FA project, trade project, etc), if I can figure out some clean categories.

 

FYI - my day opened up so just started working on the new one.

List of QB's that are rumored to be available in a trade of Free agency, I will give my opinions on whether or not it is a yes or no for me: Whether we can get any these guys is irrelevant like the Watson's or Carr's for example. This is just a list what is out there:

 

1. Wentz - no for me

2. Darnold - no for me

3. Trubisky - no for me

4. Foles -no for me

5. Dalton - no for me

6. Minshew - no for me

7. Mariota - no for me

8. Fitzpatrick - maybe for me = bridge for Eason 

9. Start Eason and say screw it - maybe for me

10. Carr - yes for me

11. Watson - yes for me

12. Ryan - yes for me

13. If Mac Jones is available at #21 - maybe for me

14. Trade our #1 and #3 pick this year to move up several spots to select someone in this years draft like maybe a Wilson or Lance - yes for me. Lawrence and Fields will go in the top 5 IMO but Wilson and Lance won't IMO.

Most of the recent mocks have Lawrence, Fields, and Wilson going in the top 4 and the other 2 going before 14 so IMO  they are not attainable

Nobody knows that, that is thing. The Jets may stick with Darnold and the Falcons may stick with Ryan, it is all a guess.

Falcons can still draft and keep Ryan. That actually would be the smart thing to do.  

 

The one to watch is the jets. If they do keep Darnold then that is someone that could be looking to trade down. But then you have the panthers or SF who have better trade spots.

The Bears could also be a player if they don’t get Wentz
