    Only I can say about J Rob is he's doing everything he can to get us a Lombardi. Are some of his decisions head scratchers? Yeah absolutely but he has also made good ones that freed up cap space in order to improve the pass rush. Still aint figured out why he was on board to sign off on the promotions for our DC and OC but if the upcoming draft goes well we will see what the future holds.

    Kelly is a swing tackle. Not a great starter. He was a stop gag for a year. Sambrillo was of even less value. Not a starter—a back up who had to start for us.

    We will see on Janoris. But just be patient. Let’s see what else we do at RT, WR, and CB. If we do nothing and rely on the draft, than ***** away. But we are two days into FA, so your freak out here is a major over reaction.

    There has to be a plan...you dont just start releasing starters without a plan to replace them

    As far as the coordinators, he obviously feels the problem was the players not the coaches

    He is only held accountable for losing and winning. If doesn’t keep a single first round pick and consistently goes to the playoffs, no one will care or hold him accountable.

    At some point it has to be more than just making it to the playoffs?
    Granted our D was our Achilles heel, he's making changes, we will see if it improves.
    Hes also lost a couple of pieces on O, with the recent moves maybe there's a plan for that too?

    I'm hoping we trade for Gilmore, sign JuJu

    Rudolph would be a good fit, provided he's not looking for Jonnu $....he's a good blocker and RZ target....Downing was his TE coach in Minny so maybe that helps?

    We traded up for Conk after trading down from Number 1. If Conk is who J-Rob really wanted then he got his guy while securing like 4 more picks.

    I was a huge advocate for not only picking up Conk's 5th yr option but also re-signing him. But J-Rob had a plan to replace him for less money. It just didn't work out and we know the reason why.

    Also, Kelly replaced Conk rather well in 2020 (comparative to price), so the plan could have worked if Panda wasn't such a tool.

    I guess that depends on Amy Adams and her expectations. Do you demand a Super Bowl? I think realistically, regularly competing for one is success enough to keep you from getting fired. At least for a while. Continuity is crucial to long term success. If you fire him, what is to say the next GM has a better shot at getting over the hump than the current one?

    Yes I'm aware we lost Davis, which is why I said we will undoubtedly sign a WR or two and draft another one. Davis was very good in 2020, but his production is replaceable. It isn't like we're replacing an All-Pro here.

    Jenkins is far from washed up. He ranked 28th in PFF's grading among 80 cornerbacks who played half of their team's snaps last year, finishing with an overall grade of 67. He isn't the shutdown corner he once was, but he's every bit a solid player. It's also important to remember that Fulton was our 2nd rounder in 2020 and had a 1st round grade. We didn't see much of him due to injury/covid, but he's certainly has the talent to be No.1 corner.


    Sambrillo was depth and nothing more and can easily replaced with a draft pick or a vet on a league minimum deal.

    let me add that it is a cost saving move to EXTEND players while still on your team. The decision is made not to extend (or rescind) players if they aren’t performing at a level the “discount” to free market allows.

    so JRob has a high rate (per picks) of 1st round picks that move on to other teams. That is unquestionably a statement that either they shouldn’t have been a 1st round pick or a mistake in extending or not was made. Both reflect the GMs performance. Now before a few blow up, using that to assess JRobs performance on other rounds is better than average. So overall, he’s slightly above average IMO.
