    I really thought he'd get close to the $10 million per.

    10.5 sacks, that usually gets you paid. 

    I think that's normally the case for a guy getting 10 plus sacks, but I think people might be thinking his injury history prior to 2019 gives reason to be cautious. Plus other factors could be his age (29, not a baby anymore), scheme fit (maybe people only see him as a 3-4 OLB or situational pass rusher), etc.

    Another factor is his side. We don't know what offers he got that he refused because he wanted more, offers that are now off the table once teams moved on. For all we know, he could have turned down close to 10 mil, like a 3 year $24mm contract.

    It's scary to think Hernandez is a bust too.... I'm still not over the fat fuck we had at LT before Solder....

    Maybe he'll get better. There's hope for Hernandez with a new staff, but if he plays this year like last year, I'm ready to declare him a bust and move on.

    Nick Gates was serviceable and proved to be better than Hernandez (and Remmers). He could compete for the spot as well.

    And we're allowed to do that... this mistake was too boneheaded for us to just sweep under the rug.

    Yeah, plus I don't see how this is any different than us normally berating Gettlemen for his prior two poor free agencies like we always do. No different than any fans berating their GM in general for poor decisions.

    It's what fans do. Complain about poor decisions.

    I'm getting tired of these threads.  Get over it already its been done and it was his decision to make.  Hard to call it a huge blunder based on 8 games and a massive salary cap hit yet I have yet to see the fruits of this trade like the rest of you.  Under a different coach and he performs like Richard Seymour is everyone going to shut the fuck up about it?  Nope because it was only one year.  Gotta let it play out because we don't have a choice.

    He's had three coaches already, but now his fourth will make him Richard Seymour? And no other GM in the league could see that but Getty? Hah!

    devil's advocate --- the odds of any of those players between 36 and 99 actually being a better player than Leonard Williams is pretty darn low. He's below expectations.... but he's not a bad player at all. 


    The problem with the trade is it didn't need to happen. We could have just signed him in the off-season, likely for far cheaper, if we really wanted him. Possibly for something like 4 years $40-48 million, which wouldn't be too bad (I would have invested elsewhere, but that wouldn't be a bad deal).

    And we'd have a high 3rd rounder this year, a premium pick.

    I also trusted BJ Hill just fine in his place. Yes, Hill isn't as good, but it's not a huge drop-off to free up $17mm in cap space to allocate elsewhere. That $17mm could have gotten is Graham Glasgow and Markus Golden.

    It's just a huge blunder on Gettlemen's part.

    Even fifth rounders have basically a special teams ceiling, if we're being realistic.

    But I blame ESPN for some of our unrealistic expectations. They talk about sixth round picks like they're going to bump starters off the roster. 

    I agree. If you get anything out of a 5th - 7th rounder, whether it be rotational/backup and/or special teams player, consider that a win. Look back at drafts from 4-5 years ago and most teams 5-7th rounders are out of the league entirely.

    Everyone likes to glorify the Tom Brady's or even Ahmad Bradshaw's/Jessie Armsteads of the late rounds, but those instances are very rare.

    Good draft overall -  although after getting Bradberry in FA, I didnt see the concept of picking a DB with the 4th pick when DE/Center help was available. Anyway - am not gonna question too much. Just hope the top 3 guys can make immediate impact and we still somehow manage to get a good edge rusher.


    Lets hope the season is held as planned - that orange fuck has been asking people to inject or consume disinfectants and shit - am not sure how the US is gonna cope with this Einstein at the helm

    With a 4th round investment in a CB, we're lucky if the guy competes this season for a nickel back role (an important role that could see 50% of snaps), but not much more. If we get more out of him, that's a big win and great value. Heck even if he sticks as a nickel back for the next three years, that's not bad for a 4th round pick.

    It also make sense considering Beal can't stay on the field and has been bad when out there, plus the jury is still out on Baker and Ballentine.

  8. 6th and 7th round picks have like less than a 3% chance of becoming starters in this league, so after round 5 I lose interest and don't care who we draft.

    And the two late 7th rounders were so late that they are basically "priority free agent" picks.

    If 2 out of these 5 late round picks even make the roster, that will be an accomplishment. 



  9. Big question is do we trust Nick Gates at RT? I do not trust Spencer Pulley as a starting C

    It's pretty fair compensation and I wouldn't say no.

    Giants drop 5 spots but get an extra first.

    Can still walk out with a starting OT and even Ruiz so suddenly we have a starting Oline.

    Obviously you would want a coupe more picks but I wouldnt turn down the extra pick with all the hole this team has.

    You're saying #9 and #42 are fair? Or you #9 and #20?

    The former is okay, and I'd still take it. We'd still be able to land one of Wills, Thomas, or Wirfs.
