Dan Campbell sounds like Mike Singletary when he came in to coach the 49ers, a lot of big talk and hopefully the results aren't like Mike Singletary as HC.

 

Mike Singletary wasn't as incoherent as Dan Campbell. Yeah he dropped his pants, but he did that as the interim head coach, not at his hiring presser...

Eason was starter got hurt, Fromm came in played well and they elected to stay with him and Eason transferred       If you want to go that route then, Justin Fields couldn't beat o

I just wish this Wentz story would end 

The Texans aren't trading Watson to the Colts under any scenario.  Imo

I have no idea what unlock the swag means, but I picked it anyway.

My assumption is Chad "Swag" Kelly, but I definitely could be wrong.

I hope it was just unbridled enthusiasm and emotion, and he has it more together than that once he gets to work.

What about JB?

Different scenario. I was responding to those who have suggested that we draft a QB, and let that player and Eason battle it for the #1 spot. :thmup:

Is Matt Ryan finished?

He's not finished but how do you feel about giving up a 1st round pick+ to be in the same exact position we are now next year or the year after?

 NO NO NO i am going to have to watch more JB.
He will be "the Best Man" to support the new QB room.

Ballard and Reich will want "THEIR" veteran that can win over the next 2+ years.
That may not work out so then it's The Draft. lol

I voted Eason though I wouldn't want us to blindly roll with him. It'd be nice to nab a vQB like Fitzpatrick or Taylor with intent to start the veteran and to give Eason a lot of work this off-season. And if there is a QB we like in the draft, take them to compete with Eason.

 

I'm down with Stafford for sure, but I kind of hoped we'd get a franchise guy though in house means. It gives you 4-5 years to grow and retain your top guys before you have to pay a QB big dollars. Bring in someone like Stafford or Prescott and we better hope they take us to the next level quick otherwise we risk really setting ourselves back.

If we can’t get Stafford this would be my preferred option. Just see what Eason can do.  I just don’t see it. Would Jacoby come back if they told him he had to compete with Eason for the starter role? It. Might very well come down to Jacoby, Eason, or a rookie starting. Not many options out there. 

plenty of "options", question will be how expensive and how they work out

Options yes but whether other teams want to trade is another story. Stafford could have a few options.

I was one of the two who picked Fitz. Its not a sexy pick but it would set us up for the long term, more so than Ryan or Stafford. As you said get Fitz and draft the best Qb you can. I like Mac Jones. I think people wanting a "mobile quarterback " would hate that pick but I think he will be a starting QB somewhere in the NFL.

Be honest with yourself. Do you really think the Texans would trade their franchise QB to a division rival?

 

if we try hard enough, give up draft picks send over some cash, then yes we could. Everyone has a price.

Don't get your hopes up or hold your breath. 

As I have posted before, I believe the Texans would do it for 3 1st rounders = 2021, 2022, and 2023. They would have several 1st round picks with that and their own. I am not sure Ballard would do that but I believe that is what it would take. That is a fair trade in reality. We would still have picks 2-7 in those 3 seasons + a franchise QB and they would have a lot 1st round picks. With Watson we could still re-sign Nelson and Leonard pretty easily and keep JT and Pittman for the long haul as well. Buck is under contract for 4 more years luckily.

For a moment I thought you were referring to Matt Campbell from Iowa State. That would have been a good hire by the Lions. 

 

Let's see how Dan Campbell works out. He can't be worse than Patricia.

Why would Texans trade there best player within the division? It doesn't make any sense to me.

Because it is Houston and Watson can go where he wants is what people don't realize. Watson has a no trade clause, if Houston tries to trade him to the Jets for example, he can say no I don't want go there.

Lol. He reminds me of Kyle Turley. Remember him? He was an OL for the Saints or Rams (Can't recall which).

@EastStreet Good job with the polls. :hat:

 

You have many QB options there but one is a glaring omission. Why not Fields as an option? Did he decide to stay in college?

Would take to much to move up that far

One of the choices in the poll is trading 3 first round picks and more for Watson. That is more than what it would take to move up for Fields. There is also a choice in the poll to trade 2 first round picks for Wilson. That is about what it would take for Fields. Given those two options in the poll, why is Fields not an option?

I feel same way as you, do we just let Eason run a season and save cap space. Draft guys for depth (QB if we get the Staffs choice to land right) , sign a few CBs, a good T/G and maybe a TE. If we go 500 take a QB next draft. This would let us build a stronger more complete team and have the cap ready for when the franchise QB choice is made.

I’m answering late, sorry if I don’t agree for the QB.

Eason ain’t no Franchise QB material from what we’ve heard. Ballard doesn’t see him as a QB 2 yet ! 
Next QB draft class isn’t as talented as this year and we need to win now somehow. 
I would wether trade up to draft a QB if Ballard has his guy in this draft, or adress the position in FA and draft LT. 
If we don’t we would waste some years.

Has anyone mentioned Goff?  I read an article stating he didn't like not starting in the playoffs.

 

Good thought.  This is another wild card, infrequently discussed scenario to keep an eye on. I dont know if you saw McVay’s comments after their playoff loss to GB, but he wasn’t exactly sounding like he was 100% on Goff. I was actually a little surprised to hear him be that non-commital.

 

The negatives with Goff is that it appears McVay’s scheme and coaching have made him look better than he is and I believe that he is the middle of a large contract.

 

That being said, he is still young and was the no. 1 overall pick fora reason.

I wouldn't trade that much for Fields.   Lawrence yes.

My pick for QB would be Michael Gallup. Oh wait, he's a WR. Yeah then I will still take Michael Gallup as we need receivers more than a QB right now.

 

Send Rock to Dallas for Gallup. :thmup:

Ballard didn't say it was definite.   He didn't rule it out.   He just said as of this minute.    I think he's hoping to find out in April and May.      He still might end up deciding Eason is OK as the back-up.

 

I was only trying to impress upon those in the "Throw Jacob Eason in and see what we have" crowd that Ballard has crushed that dream for 2021.    But I wouldn't rule out 2022....  at least not yet.

You're kinda riding the fence here, and it's a very very narrow and convenient perch. I don't take anything they say as gospel anyway, so not much would surprise me. For those that hang on words though...

I don't really love Stafford, but I'd put him ahead of Wentz and Darnold (and I don't personally think any of the 3 is worth a 1st round pick--pair of 2nds, maybe, but not a 1st)

 

Going with Eason or moving up for Lance tells me, even with the Colts' OL and defense, that it's truly a rebuild at this point.

Like I've said in other threads, the Philly to Siranni move would signal they're keeping Wentz, so I'm kinda ruling that out right now. I'd prefer Stafford over Darnold too, but I do think Darnold could possibly surprise if he isn't broke. 

 

Going with Eason would suggest rebuild to me too. Lance, not so much. Total dice roll on him, but he could be a fast boom, or fast bust.

ouch. I was typing it all out, and accidentally deleted a few lines when I went back to re-org some choices. Guess I forgot that one. 

 

If I was going to forget one though, glad it was him. Doubt we'd extend the capital to go up that high for him. I like Wilson and Lance much better than him. Perhaps even Trask too. 

 

Good catch

I’m just trying to think this thru....
 

I don’t think Ballard would like to pay TWO QBs, especially if one of the two he needs is already on his roster.  
 

I’m not sure if anything happens in March, especially this year with Covid.   That leaves April and May to test Eason as much as possible to answer a pretty important question — is he ready to be the backup?   I assume it would be mostly white board work with quizzes.   What to do in this situation or that situation?   Plus film work.   Plus some on field work.  Again, not sure how much of that will be available? 
 

I don’t think Ballard can wait until camp in July or until the preseason games in August, can he?   By then, if the answer is no, it’s too late to get someone he would feel comfortable with — isn’t it?   Again thinking out loud.

 

If theres a better scenario, I’m open to it.  Wouldn’t you rather pay Eason on his rookie minimum to be the backup, than someone else 2-3 million to do the same?

    • They were never going to pick Lamar in 2018   Karl Joseph is a bench player and Fitzpatrick is much better than him anyways   Not sure what this post is getting after
    • They are likely kicking the can down the road, and the negative consequence is higher cap numbers for those players in future seasons, and greater cap penalties to move on from those players in future seasons. The thing is there's no much else they can do. they're set to be nearly $70m over the cap in 2021, and other than these restructures, they would not be able to get under the cap by the start of the new league year. They would have to cut or trade all of their highly paid players.
    • I feel the hype about Carl Lawson is from a combination of people who haven't really watched him play, and who overrate "pressures" by assuming that all pressures are equally disruptive.    Lawson is a tough, physical, high effort guy, he tackles well, plays the run reasonably well, he has decent size, and he would fit nicely as a DE for us. He's not a dynamic pass rusher, and I don't think he ever would be a dynamic pass rusher.   He has some quickness and speed, good speed to power, but he's not the kind of explosive pass rusher that blows up the other team's blocking schemes. He has below average bend and closing speed, and he takes a lot of steps, which explains his tragically poor three cone. He also has below average length, and gets neutralized by good blockers. This is all obvious on his tape, it was obvious on his college tape, and it's why he went in the 4th round.   TomDiggs mentioned Lawson's knockdowns/hits and hurries. PFF recorded six edge rushers with at least QB 15 hits; despite the fact that Lawson had 24 hits, he only had five sacks, which is the least sacks among those six players. In fact, there were ten edges with fewer than 15 QB hits, but with at least ten sacks. PFF has 24 edges with at least 30 pressures; Lawson had 34 hurries, but was tied for fifth fewest sacks among those 24 players. In fact, there were five edges with fewer hurries than Lawson, but at least ten sacks.   My point is that QB hits and pressures only show a player that manages to get near the QB at some point during the play. Without context, they don't necessarily show a player that makes a definite impact on the play. That's why I value PFF's pass rush productivity (PRP) stat, because sacks are weighted more heavily than hits and pressures. And that makes sense because a sack ends the play. A QB can be pressured, even hit, and still make a positive play. Recognizing a sack as nearly always a negative play for the offense, PRP shows the difference between a guy who gets near the QB, and a pass rusher who makes plays for the defense. Sometimes the overlap is not as great as you might think.   Lawson's PRP was 8.5, tied for #18, well separated from guys like Bosa (10.6) and Watt (9.7). In general, a player with a bunch of total pressures, but low sack numbers, like Lawson, is a guy who gets a bunch of pass rush snaps but doesn't have the length, bend and closing speed to get home often enough. This is why guys like Trey Hendrickson and Leonard Floyd can have a third fewer total pressures, but twice as many sacks as Lawson (Hendrickson also had 80 fewer pass rush snaps). And Lawson gets a ton of pass rush snaps because he plays for a bad team with no other good edge rushers, so as long as he's healthy he'll have a lot of pressures, but he'll probably never be a big sack guy.   He's Trey Flowers. Better 40, same agility, not as long, mid level edge rusher who is well rounded and a good guy to have on your team, but not a dominant pass rusher. I can't see offering him $14m/year to not sack the QB. Any projection that has him as a big time sack guy is unrealistic, IMO.
    • It's nice to see Pittman, Smith and Okereke get some love.
    • Did I misread your post?   Did you not say you were in favor of moving Nelson to LT?   That if we’re going to pay him top dollar, it would be better to do it with him as our LT instead of at LG?    That wasn’t you?    I’m sorry, I thought that’s what I responded to....
