  1. As long as the NFL is paying for it...I think its fine. 


    Its like pretty much hiring an intern. Just sit there and learn how to be an offensive minded coach.


    Its just training. If minority coaches and assistants believe they are above it....then thats fine too.


    Ill bet there are plenty of minorities looking to learn the ways of NFL coaching.




    Just imagine you are an ex NFL player thats gotten into coaching and has interest in climbing the ladder.


    You just got the job to be an offensive assistant under Sean McVay. You learn under him for a couple of years and you get it. Youll be a coordinator in no time.

    Freak athlete coming off the 2020 injury so hope he gets back to previous health and he work for a bigger contract elsewhere 

    Hes underperformed his entire career in TB. 


    Hes Evan Engram before Evan Engram.


    Maybe he can get into a good mindset here. I still think its a good signing because hes so cheap and Sweeny was pretty bad given his chances.

    Can you provide any example of what you are suggesting? I cant think of a single scenario where a team was that awful consecutively and made a quick turn around. 


    This literally just happened with Joe Burrow. lol


    But yeah, its not easy either. 


    I think if the Browns ended up taking Allen could have been a quick turnaround for them.


    Chargers sucked for 1 year and got Justin Herbert, if he shows even more improvement youre looking at a quick turnaround with a potential elite qb,

    I don't disagree with the bolded, at all. I disagree with the idea that it is that or rebuild. If they pay Carr $40m AAV then the first couple of years it is hard to put the team around him of sufficient strength. You win with these guys towards the end of their contracts. Stafford is in the penultimate year or his deal. Carr took the Raiders to the playoffs in the penultimate year of his deal. But the idea that it is better to just try and lose.... I mean eventually you have to be trying to win and Carr is a guy who it easy to try and move on from and end up in a worse spot. 

     Well see how the Raiders approach it.

    Yea if all you are doing is numbers scouting. Andy Dalton was throwing to AJ Green, Marvin Jones and Mohammed Sanu. Who are the best receivers Carr has thrown to? 


    As for building a team around him, yea the first couple of years of a new contract for a 2nd tier guy like Carr it becomes tricky. But by year 3 with the QB inflation he will be good value against an ever increasing cap. 


    Lets just say...they pay Carr 40 million bucks...


    They need to add some real talent to make this team competitive.


    The best move for the franchise would be to say...sign Davante Adams. Which will end up being another 30 million plus.


    70 million in the hole and thats the best move they can make for the team to maybe actually win a playoff game.


    Does Carr and Adams make them a real contender at a combined 80mil a year? Thats what 40% of their salary cap?


    Maybe they try and make a run for one year and go all in. They have to copy the rams strategy or else they wont win with Carr. Simple as that my friend.

    Carr is way, way better than Tyrod. It isn't even close. He is a tier above Dalton too. Carr is a borderline top 10 guy. I have him 10th or 11th in the league. 



    I think hes in the same Tier as Dalton when Dalton was at his best. A little better than average.


    Daltons better years were just as good as Carr's. I think its safe to say we are about as near as Carr's ceiling as we are gonna get.


    QB 11 doesnt cut it with that roster. If you pay him 40 million he wont get the team he needs around him.

    The teams are all part owners of the league. The league being watchable absolutley matters. 


    So hypothetically....the Bills should be ok with Tyrod for the rest of his career because it keeps the league competitive and makes them money.


    Sorry man, i just dont agree with keeping a mid tier QB around. 


    How many years did Dalton throw away for the Bengals? Tannehill? These arent superbowl winning QBs. These teams needed to move on from them years before they did.

    But what if you don't? What if you draft a bust? Or a game manager guy who is less than Carr... say Baker or Garoppolo? It seems to me that your argument is you are either a top 5 or 6 Superbowl team or you should try to lose.


    The league would be utterly unwatchable if that was the case.


    For an NFL team being watchable doesnt mean jack. Winning a superbowl is the goal.


    There are two ways to win a superbowl nowadays. Get an elite qb or get an elite team. Most likely having both wins it.


    Raiders have neither and will not even be a contender with carr unless they build a great team around him. 40 million for a guy who isnt the main piece of a superbowl team is not worth it.

    The market is bonkers. I agree with that. It doesn't distinguish enough between elite and good. But the difference between good and not good is so stark that I don't think dumping good because you want great is wise. 


    It really, really isn't. Do people foget what 17 years of suck felt like?


    how many of those years did we end up with a top 5 pick? 3?


    If you can be horrible and get a top 3 pick 2-3 years in a row...you can turn it around a lot quicker.

    I agree he probably isn't a Superbowl Quarterback. But the reality is top 12 - Derek Carr level - Quarterback play is not easy. You could spin the wheel and end up worse. 


    I think this "you have a top 5 guy or should just throw everything in the bin and spin the wheel" approach is utter nonsense. 


    I think its better than being in wildcard limbo for the next 10 years.
