    What is a franchise QB?  I just want a QB that can win us games.  There are only a handful of Mahomes, Allen, Herbert, Brady, and Rodgers.  We don’t have one and aren’t getting one of those guys.

    Jimmy G. is a QB that can complete a high percentage of passes, not turn the ball over, and score points.  He proved he can take a team to a Super Bowl and was within minutes of winning one.  We are literally trying to copy the offense he ran in San Francisco.  It makes sense on so many levels.  

    I agree he is obviously not on the level of those top tier QBs, but we can’t just snap our fingers and get one of those guys.  Jimmy G is the best option available to us if we want to win in the next 2-3 year window.  

     

    I completely agree.

    We have to evaluate the roster, we have to evaluate Douglas and these drafts we’ve hyped up. Garoppolo allows us to do that and it’s worth spending a bit more to get it done. If you’re bad with Jimmy then you’re a bad team. He will go as the team goes.

    This is assuming the worst for Zach is true. If it’s 4-5 weeks or so they’ll just wait it out. Feels like it will provide a convenient excuse if things go badly though.

    You can walk with an acl, you just can't stop suddenly.

    I know a lot of 40+ year olds who tore it and didn't have the surgery.   As long as you're not water skiing or playing soccer (things like that) you are fine without it.

    I knew he could walk. But they would not want any professional athlete walking around if they felt he had a torn ACL. Nevermind a star QB.

    This is actually the first indication that I had that it wasn’t that bad.

    I'd go with white over flacco all day but that wont happen.

    Douglas in one of his total dereliction of duties should have had more viable guy in here. (guys like trubiksy, mariota, minshew etc)

    Instead he will be in total panic mode now.

    Said in the off-season that Zach was bad enough in his rookie year that legit competition should be brought in. No excuse for a Bridgewater type not to be brought in.

    Said that we should have either resigned Moses or brought in a tackle with the expectation that Becton would be a non-factor. We didn't an Brown had us over a barrel by the time we decided to act. 

    None of this sh*t needed hindsight. For the second year running Douglas has failed to prepare.

    Tbh I think the entire roster he put together looks more troubling than Wilson.


    this defense is horrible, offensive line gets zero push in the running game.  Michael Carter, Moore and Wilson look like ok draft picks and that’s it

     

    Buddy we're only 6 more top 5 picks from contention. We're in year zero. Patience.
