Chris loves the group of WRs on the team already, per him

 

It would be unwise to not have a Plan B, IMO. We will otherwise be in WR purgatory for a while.

Well, that puts the Dolphins ahead of us in the AFC most likely now.

 

I would say we are about tied with the Steelers and above the Jets, Jaguars, and Texans. Everyone else in the AFC is ahead of us now IMO. Luckily, we are in the weak AFC South. Unfortunately, the teams behind us have young QBs they can develop and get better and the 1st overall pick in the draft or multiple 1st round picks for multiple years (in the Texans case).

 

Lets start signing some players please. We have cap room. No more excuses!:thmup:

He would make a good possession and intermediate stretching Z / split end WR. 

 

Contract isn't expensive either. He has two years left with 9 mil on average

Well, now you can add the Phins as a team to rise in the AFC.

 

Phins have added Edmunds, Hill, Mostert, and secured Geseki. W E A P O N S

 

Colts have added Matt Ryan and resigned Cox.  :sigh:

Personally. I dont want that piece of % anywhere near my team. My feeling are irrelevant, however. But try to imagine Jim telling his daughter that they just signed this guy......

and they have Tua (who is average) as their QB and are still the 3rd best team in their division. We will win our division book it.

It's about trying to better the team. Regardless of outcome, who seems like they are really trying to upgrade in the two I mentioned?

 

Go ahead, you can say it. We ALL know

Here's a hint regarding the Phins. Don't be surprised if they trade for Garoppolo or draft a QB next year. 

 

What they are doing is building the team first and QB last in the model of the Chiefs. Step back and see it for what it is.

 

Tua, if he gets no better is easily replaced, similar to every QB we have had including Ryan. Only difference, we are not putting pieces in place to complement the QB once that QB is secured.

 

Again, step back and see it. What it is vs. what we are not

What the heck is wrong with NFL clubs paying such ridiculous amounts with draft capital and cap space to sign one player; it is ridiculous beyond my imagination. It’s clear the NFL makes wayyyyy too much money. Wish the fans would start tuning out and make the league bleed…

Why do you care how much money players make?  It’s not like you are paying them.

100% agreed. They signed Armstead and traded for Hill. There's two premium players at premium positions right there. Got Edmunds and Mostert at RB, Connor Williams, Cedrick Wilson and Teddy Bridgewater as well. That's just the offense. Maybe it doesn't work out this year. If not, the new QB will have a heck of a team to work with now.

I believe he is upset because we can't get those players because the Colts won't do the same as those other teams and it drives the players out of our price range, but he's a huge Ballard supporter so he's trying to justify it as a bad move in the same breath as well so it paints Ballard in a positive light that he's "smarter" than the teams making these trades.

Ballard is certainly looking at upgrades at WR.  Obviously not the $30 million tag type, but he’s looking.  I think we will see a  FA wr added as well as possibly draft.  There will be roster cuts as well later.

  We’re not gonna get a top FA wr, but i expect some more additions. Pitt is really the inly current WR on roster of starter quality i think.  The loss of Pascal was bigger than most think.

We need speed. Not another X.

 

Not necessarily. Frank takes maybe a couple of shots down the field with WRs anyways and if your X can get to the 20-25 yard level consistently, that wins in the current NFL. Mike Evans does not run away from CBs, he has an accurate QB that takes full advantage of 1-on-1s when he gets it. Parker is a good split end WR that can play intermediate Z too. Evans comes underneath like an X too, just like Pittman does. 

 

Frank moves them all around.

He mentioned yesterday that we we tried to get some but with the QB situation they lost out. The corroborated colts almost had JU JU.

Jets offered the 10th pick and 33rd pick. The Chiefs must have some targets 

 That’s not what they offered.  Per Schefter:

 

Chiefs would have gotten picks No. 35, 38 and

 

Jets would have gotten Hill and No. 103.

Chiefs got more value in draft picks for Hill than the DaVante Adams trade, technically speaking.

    • He’s the kind of guy I wouldn’t mind moving back into end of Round 1 from our current 2nd, for the 5 year rookie contract after drafting an LT earlier. Will cost us a future 2nd most likely.
    • I still say that we should move Raimann to RT while he's still young, and slide Smith over to RG.  The draft a LT in the first, like Paris Johnson OSU...already has the size/strength and mobility.  Has production at a top program too...not just a RAS guy.   We can trade back into the mid/bottom of the first to take one of the QBs...either Hooker or Tanner McGhee.
    • We misused Hines by the fact that we used him a lot, LOL.  OTOH, Buffalo has been using him appropriately thus far.....
    • Good Lord.  The misinformation spewed on this forum in the form of stats/facts/data warrants some sort of Information Monitoring like Twitter.  Over and over again...its non stop.  Misinformation abounds when it comes to anything that can be funneled into a Frank narrative. Philly's defensive line ranking is IRRELEVANT.  Didn't we play a different dline than the dline that accumulated the stats?  Our opponent had Suh and Joseph...IOW, 50% different than the dline that has accumulated sack stats going into the game.  And we gave up less sacks because Jeff is a genius and Frank is a maroon?  LOL...No..we gave up less sacks because we went up against a dline that had 50% run stuffers.    Ryan's 50 QBR ratings are also funstions of LVR, and a function of an oline that is likely improving.  It has improved during Ryan's absence because Smith has gotten back to normal (trending upward for weeks) and Nelson is improving.  And Raimann is also improving.  Better protection, better QBR...go figure.  Have each of them not improved their PFF grades?....Where are those facts?  And with the same "bad" oline coach.   JT?  Against LVR...and with an improving oline....improving with that same "bad" oline coach.    The issue with Frank...according to this forum...was PLAYCALLING.  Lets not move the goal posts.  If its scheme, that is a deeper issue and an issue that involves Ballard.   A GM is not just going to sit idlily by and let his HC dictate what kind of offense the team has,  If so, then Ballard did not supply Frank with the proper talent needed by the HC.  Ballard and Reich were partners in this scheme.  OTOH, playcalling is on the coach.   Can you imagine, Ballard says nothing about scheme...but knows exactly the players Frank wants.  IOW, he has gotten Frank all of the players he wants, but Frank is too dumb to know how to use the players that he has asked Ballard to get him.  What a twisted sense of logic....all just to validate a two year long narrative.
