Leinart, Sanchez, Palmer, and Cassell are all hot stinky garbage.
Want to watch Kevin Hogan from Stanford again tomorrow. He looked real good against Oregon, but I think UCLA will be a better test. In 3 years he might be an Andrew Luck type.
In the meantime, I wouldn't mind EJ Manuel in the second.
We can look at pretty much every unit on our team (QB, running backs, O-line, WRs, linebackers, D-line, specials) and say that even if it does really well next year, it won't be much better than average.
I want us to keep Revis so that we can actually be good at something. After injury's not the right time to sell unless we have proof he can't go like he used to anyway.
NO way Fauria lasts until round six. I was going to take him in round 3. Like what you have done though. If we stayed put Teo would be good because it gives us a solid guy in the middle, and gets us a OLB by moving Davis out there.
We need to rebuild the Oline holding onto Mangold, Ferguson.
Austin Howard is grading worse than Wayne Hunter, he needs to be cut, we need a quality RT. We need a clutch veteran WR and we need to draft a tightend.
On defense, our linebacking unit needs to be rebuilt and Kyle Wilson needs to go.
With so many holes, we clearly cannot afford to spend so much of the cap on Revis. We need that cap space and we need those picks, be they second rounders or worse.
Since there is no RG111 in this years draft, I would ask Sanchez to take a pay cut and have him compete against whomever next spring. Agreed Sanchez is hot garbage but he has been running for his life and has no one to throw a football to.
Look around the league at how bad some really good teams have looked with their backups in. Steelers look like a joke now. Chicago looked horrible on O and D with Campbell in there. Its easy to criticize all aspects of the team right now in this debacle of a season but the reality is that it starts and ends with Sanchez. He stinks and the rest of the team follows suit. If there is a franchize type QB available in the draft the team needs to do whatever it takes to get him. If not Seattle should be looking to dump Flynn and his contract. Grab him for next season and dump Sanchez, then we see what happens. If it takes trading Revis to get a pick to grab a QB in the draft then do it. If not keep the guy. Either way the D is not the problem. Obviously Greene needs to be upgraded but that position isn't what is killing the team. WR's can use a boost but that isn't what is killing us either. Sanchez complete suckitude is the culprit.
This is a 2-3 year rebuild, not that we can't be competitive. The reason for this in my eyes, is there is no sure thing QB in this years draft class. This is probably a draft we should build around the QB. Get some quality pieces this year and look at the 2014 draft class for a QB. Everything points to Sanchez being back next year. Draft BPAs on offense the first 4-5 rounds and hope that a couple are at skill positions.
With all that has been said, and we DON`T draft a qb this year (and using my hypothetical trades):
12 (trade down from 7): CJ Mosley OLB 4-3
38: Chase Thomas OLB 4-3
51 (trade with Minny for Revis): Desmond Trufant CB
69: Robert Lester FS
73: (roughly for the trade down in first round): Stepfan Taylor RB
83 (trade with Minny for Revis): Seantrell Henderson ROT
101: Travis Frederick OG
Again, this is just to show that by using a high pick this year and moving down a few spots, and by using our biggest asset in Revis, there is 7 solid football players that would help turn this roster around quickly (in just the first 4 rounds). Having three more picks for depth here, and one can see we will not need to spend a lot in free agency (which we can`t this year anyway).
With a smart draft in 2014, and solid FA signings, we would be competitive again by 2014.
The team swung for the fences in Rex`first two years and missed. Time to rid the contracts, rebuild, and be ready for 2014.
For this reason, and this reason alone, I think it was Woody's intention not to make a front office or HC change this off season. He may get his wish. The teams we play down the stretch are very bad. AZ will probably have a 7 game losing streak and Jax is probably the second worst team in the league. Now if Chad Heene plays like he and the Jags did last week, and we implode on Monday night football again, it may force Woody's hand.
Both Tebow AND McElroy had more successful college careers than "the Golden one" and should be given a chance with this team. Tebow had a successful season last year in the NFL with a better record than assclown. He is tough and played for YOU last week even though his ribs were broken.
You say Tebow doesn't fit with this team? Maybe cuz he's not a loser. YOU have no clue as you haven't seen either Tebow OR McElroy play a game for the Jets yet you dismiss them out of hand.
