      Problems logging in?   11/05/2017

      I know a few people are getting logged out too quickly. I don't have the answer to that yet.   However, one change that occurred is that there is no longer a log in name and a separate display name. The upgrade discarded the log in name and now uses the display name. So, to log in:   Username: <display name> Password: <your password>   If you need to contact me to find out what your display name is use: Contact Us  and we can get things sorted out.

What do these 6 NFL QB's have in common?

Recommended Posts

-Jimmy Garoppolo

-Sam Bradford

-Kirk Cousins

-Matthew Stafford

-Drew Brees

-Derek Carr

 

ALL are potential Free Agents for the 2018 season.  A franchise tag from their current teams would probably run in the $25-28 mil area for one year.  I'm sure the players and their agents don't want the tag for long-term security and salary negotiation reasons.

 

If we could only sign one of them to a long term deal and then draft a QB for the future.

We would still need a decent 0C, an o-line, legitimate WR's actually playing in games, and a defense.  I'm all for drafting a legitimate QB prospect.  Paying a bunch of money for a free agent on that list aside from maybe Brees or Carr is going to make little difference on this team with the current problems.

Oh, come on, man...........who the hell would ever come here with absolutely zero Oline?

 

QBs are a fickle bunch and i dont blame them to want to have at least a little security behind centre. Our Oline will destroy many-a-career here for any QB that would be stupid enough to stand behind.

 

We are resounded to rookie QB's who aren't experienced or smart enough to know that our Oline will get them killed.

Stafford signed a 5 year contract prior to this season making him the highest paid NFL player. I guess you missed that.

This is a real problem, not just for picking up a good QB, but for picking up good WR's.

What WR wants to come here and get killed by an inaccurate, hurried QB throwing the ball under, over, behind, or late ?

Jimmy's likely staying with SF. Bradford's knee is really bad. Cousins has the same amount of wins this year as Tyrod. Brees only wants to play for NO

Brees only wants to play where he gets paid the most.

 

But he's too old for the Bills, anyway.

Yeah but a "franchise QB" doesn't need any help. He can win it on his own. No good team mates needed.

You forgot Case Keenum and Teddy Bridgewater.  Now we're getting to the Bills' level ... although I could certainly see a damaged Sam Bradford too.

 

Bradford would not be bad.  Yes, injury prone.  But should be the "cheapest" of the bunch.  Sign him, he instantly makes the WR's better.  Let the rookie QB learn from him.  If he gets injured, then the rookie comes in.  If he doesn't, then the rookie keeps learning and we start winning.

Good thing we drafted Cyrus Kouandjio in the second instead of Carr! Otherwise we would be having to pay him that big contract.

 

 

 

 

 

crap don't remind me about that.  Made me so mad.   OL guy with history of injuries rather than Carr, who likely fell b/c of his brother.

Carr & Stafford signed new deals, Stafford signed his this year & Carr Last so they are not going to be FA's any time soon !! 

 

But the others may be ...

I'd give Brees whatever he wants + 10%. He ain't too old for me (and the Bills).

Would like all those guys but Bradford, but the only realistic one is Cousins. What about Case Keenum?

Sign Case and draft a QB high.

Depends on the QBs available, I would only trade up for Darnold and Rosen. If we can't get them then Mayfield with the first pick and if not him then Rudolph with the 2nd first.

AHHH! I freaking hate when I see things like this of missing a real QBs for garbage players. Cyrus wasn't even good and had a bum knee :death:

Hell Yeah, Brees still has it and with a few key players we could get this turned around.

Carr was drafted well ahead of him in the 2nd round.

Carr and Stafford aren’t free agents. Jimmy G, isn’t going as a FA (that’s why SF traded for him). Brees is retiring in New Orleans, that’s obvious. Bradford sucks and is always hurt. Cousins is going to get tagged again if they can’t work out a long term deal. Other than that it’s a good list with a bunch of guys that the Bills will probably sign. :blink:

He’s not going anywhere. Brees in New Orleans is as big of a deal as Kelly was in Buffalo. He will retire in the black and gold no questions asked. I’m as likely to play for another team as he is.

Give the OP credit for a well researched topic where he obviously did his homework. :beer:

New Orleans is a super bowl contender, Brees is still an excellent QB, he's worth every penny he wants and I can't imagine the Saints not signing him.
