Lower salaries and lower payroll...yeah, the owners wouldn't mind pocketing some extra profit after this year. Let the GMs handle the personnel and the coaches handle the Xs and Os as collateral damage.I would think that is exactly what the owners would want to do.
I think the Pats offense is just too complex for a rookie to start. I agree with your overall premise but not for the Pats. Qb takes time to develop in our system. Took Jimmy 2.5 years.I am all for drafting a rookie and starting him. I am not sure why we have to waste another year with a QB who is not going to be here for long. Its not the same as a rookie starting for the bengals, he is in ok hands he is not here to save the franchise, but you have to see what you have. We never saw that with Stidham, who we might never know what happened to.
Great stuff Chevss. Thank you.

In this group, I would want Fields or Trask. Pats would have to move up to get Fields for sure and maybe Trask too. I don't know who Jamie Newman is. Is he good?
- Trevor Lawrence (1)
- Zach Wilson (2)
- Justin Fields (3)
- Trey Lance (10)
- Mac Jones (30)
- Kyle Trask (44)
- Jamie Newman (86)

Between the picks it would take to get him and the amount we would have to pay him, I would not want him. We have so many holes to fill. He would prevent us from building a team around him. If we were just a piece or two away he would be great but we can't mortgage picks and that much cap IMO.

My impression (and that's all it is) was under his watch I was constantly yelling (3rd down) "Get off the field" but no luck.As long as he's a personnel evaluation guy, I'm fine with it. He and Rothstein bring all the Lions' player evaluations for the draft.
Do Not Want Him as DC.
