  1. I never would’ve cut Amendola. I’d bring Piñiero back and have him and Amendola battle it out. I’d even consider keeping both, with Amendola handling KOs and longer attempts if he can’t win the job outright.

    Agreed that QBs always rise.  However, doesn't it usually start to happen by now?

    I don’t know. @Sperm Edwards mentioned Sanchez, who I thought was expected to go around #20 this time of year back then. Seems like Zach and, even more so, Trey Lance were later risers last year. I usually don’t start really paying attention to the draft until around now, and it always seems like the QBs bubble to the top.

    The top QB taken should be in the #7-10 range, right where we should land with the Seattle pick.  What better trading partner than the non conference Jets with front office ties and a common adversary (Giants)?  A team like the Jets with multiple holes that could be filled middle of round 1 where the Eagles sit.

    The QBs almost always rise every year. Really hoping at least one goes in the top three.

    That said, I’m very much in favor of trading down (as I almost always am), and hoping that they can land an additional first in 2023 as a result. This board is very OL-centric, but I’m hoping for the WR or maybe a LB with their second first rounder.

    I got banned because of some distasteful things I posted in a Matt Rhule thread during the hiring process a few years ago. 
     

    I really hate that guy.  Rhule and Darnold deserve each other…

    Yeah? It’s not easy to get banned around here, especially when I’m not the only mod who wanted nothing to do with Rhule.  

    I didn’t hate the Gase signing until I fully realized that I should. Pretty early into year two.

    *sigh*  

    OK, whatever you say, greatest bestest most awesomest draft eva!

    Every other draft sucked.

    Happy?

     

    I’m a happy guy. That’s how I can root for guys like Geno, Sam, and -now- Zach. My glass is almost always half full, at least. 
     
    But yes, now I’m even happier. Thanks. Happy New Year, seriously, hope it’s great!

    Sanchez > Wilson

    Greene = Carter

    AVT probably > Slauson 

    This class has E. Moore, who could be another Coles-level talent eventually, true.  

    Forgive me if I don't get wet in the panties for our bevy of forced-to-start also-ran DB's like Echols or Carter 2.  Most teams they're depth guys or practice squadders. somehow for us they're starters.  And please, spare me the "rookie of the week" B.S.

    But those were the only three players drafted that year. I’m not concerned about the moisture level in your panties, but Moore is better than no WR by a pretty wide margin, and Carter II, Echols, Pinnock, Sherwood, Nasrilsomething, are also far better than nothing. Even if they turn out to be depth/special teams guys, it’s way better than only drafting three players. There really is no comparing that draft to 2021 without seriously trying to nitpick it. Even that attempt tells you how good this draft was compared to the last two decades.

    We'll see if you're more correct on this take than you were about Darnold or Mims in recent years.  

    Mims is disappointing but, let’s be clear on the record: I didn’t want to draft Darnold and you know this - you used one of my many anti-Darnold pre-draft posts as your signature for a stretch. I root for the players on the team and try to stay away from negativity in general. So I was rooting for Darnold. That’s it. I’m rooting for Wilson now.
