  1. You're saying you think the top 3 picks will be QB? No way. Has that *ever* happened? I don't know when 3 QBs have been taken in the top *5*. It hasn't in the last 10 years at least... And it's not like this is some unbelievable crop of QBs.
  2. While maybe teams *should* think that way, I doubt they will. They're not all going to say "either Wilson or Fields, idc". They'll end up deciding they prefer one or the other, and then pay to be able to get him.
  3. You might be right - but I think there's often a prediction of a run on QBs leading up to the draft. And it doesn't usually happen. In fact, correct me if I'm wrong, but the top 3 picks haven't been QBs in - forever? I'm not even sure when 3 of the top 4 have been QBs. Without any other info, if I had to bet today, I'd bet that either Wilson or Fields will still be there at 5. (Obviously if you strongly prefer one to the other, that won't necessarily be much of a consolation.)
  4. There's no way I'd swap picks with them for their 2 and their 3. I'd expect a 1 next year too. But maybe you're right, you can't fleece them if they're just trying to get a lineman.
  5. More like the 90s when the parents can no longer smack their little snowflake to get him to shut up. Even though, God bless him, I know Max tries...
  6. How are we at #3 with no QB to draft? Or are you saying Miami wouldn't trade with us? Because we'll certainly be able to make the best offer - and it will still be less than what Cincy gave us.
  7. The following seems eminently reasonable (and likely) to me. Am I wrong / missing something? Cincy really wants Sewell. Presumably so does Miami. So Cincy offers us a haul to move up to 2. Miami should certainly be willing to give up their 3 to swap with us (instead of letting Cincy trade with us). But let's say they don't offer enough, and/or they think we're bluffing. So we take the trade and drop to 5. Now Miami is on the clock. Seems like they'd either take Chase or trade back. I'd think they'd take Chase. But if they want to trade back - who has more ammo than us? We should be able to give up a lot less than we got from Cincy to move back up to 3. But say Miami takes Chase. Now - does Atlanta want a QB? It seems to me they'd still think they have a window with Ryan, and wouldn't take a QB. That leaves them either taking someone else, or trading down. Again - who has more ammo than us? If 4 is open for business, we'll happily swap with them. Getting the QB we want at a lower pick has the further advantage of a smaller cap charge in the future. And, if something goes horribly wrong, we might have Wilson and Fields graded similarly, and so we'd still get one at 5. And we'd have three 2022 #1's (Ours, Cincy, and Seattle's), plus whatever else Cincy gave up.
  8. I agree with what you're saying. Though - where did you get the stat that Becton only allowed 3 sacks? I feel like I can think of 3 sacks off the top of my head, 2 of which were forced fumble sacks... I've seen others say 9 or 11 sacks.
  9. I don't understand this. You convince everyone you love Sewell. Then Cincinnati says "we want the #2." And JD says, what, "I hope you don't take my guy!" You want to mislead people so that they'll trade *over* you - they won't trade *with* you!
  10. Thanks. (I also didn't remember when in the game that happened.)
  11. You might be right. But if Mims was the first read, it was pretty clear he was going to be wide open a split-second after his stutter. Right when Fant was getting pushed into his face. Seems to me that he could have slid left a step or two and had an easy play. But it wasn't clear Darnold was even looking at him...
  12. Has anyone looked at Zuniga when he's been on the field? He's had just about no impact AFAICT. Any idea what's going on with him?
  13. I don't claim to speak tweet - but are we sure the tweet is saying what the thread title says? Maybe he was confused about someone named Dowell Loggains playing video games, wasn't sure why someone would use the coach's name...
  14. On the plays that I was paying attention, Darnold never seemed to even look over at Mims' side of the field. I must have missed some, but it didn't seem like he was the first read very often...
  15. We're keeping Mims our secret weapon by refusing to even look at him when he runs a route. Imagine the surprise when a prospective coach discovers he's on our roster!!
