Re: Weeds not gifted the spot .....................

Re: Weeds not gifted the spot ..................... 


"So HeadHole , , do you have a direction you would like to see Chud pursue in course of this rebuild , which you see them doing in deference to what you perceive as the correct course ."

-- Just to keep on trying to be clear, the only "correct course" I see so far is that Chud's comments seem to indicate that no spot is a foregone conclusion and evaluations need to be made.

I think it's logical that a new regime- again backed by a new FO- will naturally be a bit distant from guys they didn't draft in the first place and who may be better suited for other schemes or fit the criteria of some other coach. And I think the resistance to any favor towards any player that can effect his evaluation is a good thing.

Having said all that, it would be wise not to reinvent the wheel if you don't have to. Stay with guys who fit your ideas and change only what needs to be changed. 

"Are you buying into the 34 changeover from the 43 and who do you project as an elephant blue chip at the 5th hole if we go that route with our top pick"

-- 3-4s, blue chips, 5th hole. I've got little to add to that conversation at this point. My take would boil down to the simple command to make the team better. Chud and company would seem to have their hands full over the next few months as they figure out who to keep and who to draft.

I'm just curious what the new staff has done or said that makes you think this is not the case.  They've been pretty up front about wanting to watch tape and evaluate skills and existing talent as it fits or doesn't fit into the system they want to implement.  Presuming they will just dump someone of value because he wasn't "their guy" appears to be a gigantic stretch - not to mention giving no credit to the coaches proven ability to evaluate talent and adapt winning strategies.

I'd say Cam Newton here, as a case in point, but that's just me.

-- I'm sorry that what I've said has been confusing. Not the first time that's happened.

I think I said- or I certainly meant to say- that what Chud et al. have said so far indicates to me the hope that- while no position is set in stone prior to in-house evaluations- they will see which guys are "of value" to them and how best to utilize their abilities. 

In other words, I imagine they will see that it would be in their best interests if they go forward while avoiding reinventing the wheel. To do otherwise- especially in a flexible and competitive environment like the NFL- would be foolish. Although, if the adage "a new broom sweeps clean" is true, we might indeed see some questionable changes.

My writings were just the sideline ramblings of a not very bright fan. Trying to follow them might not have too much payback.

Screw you, Reents. 


Just for that, I'm hanging around.  Posting stuff.  With links.  Challenging opinions and crazy ass statements.  Prodding peeps to elevate their game.

In other words, making a general nuisance of myself. 

I've got you in my sights.
