In hindsight, what’s your worst “hot take” on TSW ever?

That I wanted the other Josh...

That wasn't a "hot take."  That was a sensible opinion at the time.

 

No one knew Josh would basically do the impossible.

I was in the "Don't pay Jason Peters" camp. And then he turned out to be a generational talent at LT. 

 

But being fair, who was he really protecting in Buffalo? Losman? Brian Brohm? 

 

Peters sure did get his dollars.  But he didn't move the needle in Philly and wasn't part of any dynasty.  The year they won the Superbowl,  Peters was already out at midseason.

Fans of Boston sports teams are known for having an excuse for everything.........so I guess it comes natural to you to think that way.

 

But Josh Allen was the QB with the highest ceiling and pretty much considered a consensus first round draft pick.

 

Becoming a franchise QB was plenty north of "impossible".

The worst take I have seen here ( not from me) was the poster who wanted to start Barkley over JA in that disaster 2018 season because of Barkleys game over the Jets...

 

The guy still posts here but I wont name him...

check the Josh Allen official draft pick thread from spring 2018.  😳

Same, I was an idiot who thought they didn't need to trade up. Lol

Most recently, that Levi wallace would get eight or nine million to stay in Buffalo. 

 

But the worst is a tie:

That Peterman could be a top ten QB.

That Tyrod could be a top ten QB.

That Manuel could be a top ten QB.

That Orton could be a top ten QB.

That Fitz could be a top ten QB. (I STILL CLING TO THIS ONE! ).

 

There are others but I don't want to belabor the point. I'm a total homer.

Josh Allen's pre-draft prospect vs. what he is now is arguably the greatest improvement in NFL history.

 

He always had a high ceiling, sure.  What were the odds he would come close to hitting it?  That was the issue.

 

He is a fabulous, one in a million, success story.

Yes.  But HOF for what?   Being a highly paid left tackle?    I'm pointing out that the Eagles spent a lot of money on something that didn't matter in the end.   There was another HOF tackle in Cleveland Joe Thomas around the same era as Peters.  He sure led them to the promised land like Peters lol.   I'd rather spend the money on other positions that make more of a material difference on Wins vs Losses.

I wanted either Josh. But leaned other Josh. The way he read coverages etc just had me feeling like he was the next Brady. 
 

I wanted Blaine Gabbert so bad. I really thought he was going to be the next big thing. 

I thought Russel Wilson was too small and I preferred Kirk Cousins. 

 

I really thought Reggie Ragland was going to be our Patrick Willis. He was here for two seconds.

Didn't join until recently, but I was a regular poster on the Buffalo message board before they shut it down. I thought that Stevie Johnson would never be a starter. Guy was on the team for a couple of years and always seemed to be a camp body. He exploded with Fitzpatrick.
