Man, 1997 - 2007 first rounders...brutal stretch. Best players: - Vernon Carey (we traded draft capital cuz we were scared by NE...who then picked Wilfork a couple picks later...we lose even when we get a relatively decent 1st rounder) - Ronnie Brown (again lose when we win...could have picked Rodgers) 4 years with no picks, then the likes of Green, Avery, Fletcher, Allen, Ginn.

Having had, now, a short bit of time to think thru this a bit, I find myself more ok with the trade than not. The number of players, picks salary (present & future) makes the trade a bit difficult to analyze, but the best I can sort of boil it down to is 2 1sts and a 2nd for Tunsil...the rest were machinations of a deal that sees us lose Stills' talent (which I've always appreciated) and sal

I get kicking the tires on any legitimate option to improve the team. And, I don't think that anyone on the team fits into the "can't be had for any price" category. That said, Tunsil, along with Howard, are the two most prominent parts of building with young, elite (or elite potential & on the way to realizing it) players at premium positions. Clowney is a clear upgrade over w

There's a Herald article outlining the specifics of the Grant contract, and I really like what the team did there. Kudos, it seems.

I like the idea of extending "your own" before they hit the market as a concept. And, I like Jakeem Grant and what he brings to the table as a receiver and returner. A couple of things that make me wonder: - he's coming off season-ending injury - his production to date doesn't equate to 6 mill/yr (my opinion) Another factor that could be negatively clouding my perspective is th

I was admittedly slow in coming around to the idea that QB is the most important position unit on the team relative to overall success and somewhat begrudgingly gave up my long-held belief that OL is #1. I still maintain the strong belief that the OL is incredibly critical to overall success. While I'm not super-excited about the talent level outside of Tunsil, I'm reminded that you don't need

I agree. Obviously the moves have to prove out over time - and no one bats 1.000. But it feels good to at least sense that we have a plan & approach that makes sense and seems to point toward success. - the coaching staff seems to have a vision, but lacks experience...so we have some seasoned in-house consultants to fill that gap - at least per Flores' words, there's competition at ev

"Watching sports center. He did not like the contracts that were given CJ Mobley and Bell!! OK knowing that will make them want to play hard for him. Next he will start leaking detrimental news to the press on those 2. He is going to lose respect real soon in that locker room. Gase is a first class Jerk." Man, so true. Take the most talented players on your team...publicly shame

"With the exception of Tom Brady (God he will haunt rational draft thinking for the next hundred years), you just can't find a franchise Quarterback OUTSIDE OF ROUND ONE and probably NOT OUTSIDE THE TOP HALF (16) OF ROUND ONE." "Six of the winning QBs (remember you were the one that set the test) were drafted in the first round." I don't know who set the goal posts at &q

"I agree with what you said. But this is the ultimate team sport. Plenty of decent (not HOF) QBs have won the Superbowl." Agreed and that's what gives hope. Architecting a SB-contending team is so much more than a top-6 picked QB. I do think you need consistent, high-level QB play as a massive part of the overall mix, and, encouragingly, it's been proven that such QBs can be found

"The history of football proves you need to pick a QB in the top 6 picks in order to get a great QB." I like the analysis. However, I think that it doesn't really reflect more recent history as is appropriate. I love that Aikman and Elway won a good handful of SBs 20+ yrs ago as #1 overall. However, history since then suggests that SB-winning QBs are found outside of the top 6 i

Irrespective of how any of us feels about Tannehill in his time here, I think it will be incredibly interesting to see what a change of scenery does for him. I, for one, am grateful he didn't end up on the Pats, as (as much as I absolutely hate to admit it) they are not run by idiots. Whatever his ceiling is, they could likely get him closest to it most consistently.

"DAL went 1-15 Aikman's rookie year 1989." Touche' I'd definitely be ok with that scenario. Aikman didn't play in his first year like Marino or Mahomes in their first year, but it is possible to draft a great QB and end up w/#1 pick in that scenario.

"Now just for instance, if Tua is the absolute best QB on the board AND we are picking at #1 AND we have Murray on our roster AND he played like Mahomes or Marino" Thanks for clarifying. In the above scenario, I don't think we can have a QB play like Mahomes or Marino and have the #1 pick. But the overall clarification was helpful.

I agree for the most part. I think the top 1/2 (generally) of the 1st round is where you swing for the fences for true difference makers. And, in today's NFL, difference makers are QB in a stratosphere of its own...then next-tier positions of difference, which can include receivers & backs, but I think can include CBs/DE/Edge - players most likely to counter offensive firepower. Obviously,

"Now, if we take him, that in no way should be a reason that we don't take another QB in 2020, because we should. Even if he plays his rookie season on the level of Mahomes, Marino, etc. We should still take another QB in 2020. A QB room of Murray, Falk and Tua or whomever we took in 2020 IMHO would be a pretty good room going forward." I know you didn't say it, but with Tua bein

"And btw there could be NO scouring the film because you would have to use it before the ball is snapped again." I think teams would absolutely employ a team of relatively low-paid position-watchers to sit and watch individual positions all game long literally scouring for anything that might be worthy of review, and then signaling the coach in case he felt it was the right time to u

"But you guys are arguing that this would only be the absence of perfection. To me the absence of perfection is a lot better than relying on the coaches saying "AND NO DAMN HOLDING". You guys are just arguing AGAINST a more perfect game." I've read this a couple times and am not sure I understand. I am against a 100% perfect game (meaning every single player on every singl

Here's why I probably lean toward "no" (haven't voted yet), even though I think New Orleans was 100% robbed of a near-guaranteed SB berth. I think teams would save the challenges, for the most part, until the very end of (especially) close games. Then, for instance, when the offense converts a critical 3rd down on a game-winning drive, the defensive team would challenge anything tha

Honestly felt like he and the team slightly overachieved (emphasis more on slightly than overachieved) given the season's circumstances thru 13 games. But I find myself glad that the last 3 games played out as they did because I think they are a much greater indicator of who Gase & Tannehill are when put in the position we all want the team to be in...playoffs on the line.
