    How? Since she's taken over we have had 1 AFC championship appearance, 2 division titles, and 4 trips to the playoffs. 1 season under .500 and she has already made significant moves since. This is an arrogant nonsense take.

    Dude who cares? I never understood the seething despair over this. He was a 7th. That's what the 6th and 7th round are for. You gamble on a guy, who's probably going to bust, but maybe just maybe, can become something. He was a gunslinger in college, Mariota was out, take a chance.

    The guy that everyone on here was going fanboy for, was cut by our rival for missing too many kicks and losing them games. He sucked. So... lose-win. Had we drafted Blakenship, we'd be bitching about that too.

    Of the list of things to criticize JRob for, I don't think this cracks top-20. Finding good value in the later rounds and UFA was actually his strong suit.

    Love your optimism and I get your point, but no he can't. Mahomes threw for 5K yards in a season in college. That's Air McNair numbers.

    For all we know, Willis could become the next... like Andy Dalton... maybe... at this point.
    EDIT: or the next Alex Smith (now that I saw someone else make that reference). That's probably his ceiling tbh, and that's still highly highly unlikely. It's more likely he's out of the league in 3 years.

    Hope I'm wrong though.

    and so was Blakenship. But then you don't have control. I know sometimes its hard for people on this site to realize it, but there are 31 other teams to chose from.

    I'm with you.. bad pick. Hindsight. It was a 7th. Let's move on from the Hawaiian and unify under hate for Kevin Dodd.

    That was really smart of him. He knew playing wasn't for him but used the opportunity he had to get his name out there and foot in the door in a high level position which turned in to a GM role. Pretty damn cool.
