    I disagree with you about the money and all that, I think if you want really good players, you have to pay for them at some point. But, I dont think it was a good move for the Eagles because I dont think they have a QB that is going to be able to utilize him. For all of Tannehill's faults, which there are many, he is a beter pure passer than Hurd and was usually on the same page with AJ.

    We don't have qb either frankly.

    Ajs best year is 1,071 yards. Good, but hardly worth top 4 money.

    And betting on those knees going forward scared me.

    I think the write up on the Titans is spot on and the problem I have with this. Unless Burks comes out and has a Randy Moss-esque rookie season, then at best, the Titans used their first round pick to basically stand still. I think the Chiefs and BIlls are the favorites out of the AFC, but the TItans should be in the playoffs. And considering we just saw a team make an unexpected SB run, it makes no sense to me to not try and upgrade at any position, and instead essentially stand still at the receiver position.

    I really thought we might take one.

    I don't see it now. If we were going to, we'd have traded up three spots for the option.

    Although for a QB, the option isn't that big a deal... You either have a situation like Allen or Mahomes or went, or Goff where you extend them early, or a situation like Jones where you don't pick it up at all.

    I said it pre draft and said it during the season when I saw the AJ comparisons. Burks reminds me of Laviska Shenault in so many ways.

    Sooooo ….if he doesn’t have 1300 yards and 17 TDs he is a bust?

    Jesus take the wheel……

    They didn’t stand still. You had a player who wanted HUGE money and wasn’t worth it. It would have frozen the future of the franchise. Now we have a rookie WR with the same skill set on a rookie deal for 5 years. It’s a business. We also got more picks. But like Smith and Davis I don’t expect much from AJ in the future. But he got paid. Titans made the right move.

    I said absolutely nothing about him being a bust, so not sure how you took that from my post. THe point, is that if you trade one guy to then draft another guy at the same position, then if he is not flat out better than AJ off the bat, then you didnt improve your team. If he isnt better than AJ then you didnt improve at WR you just stood still, but you also miss out on potentially improving somewhere else. Look at it this way, if you sell a stock for 100 dollars, buy another stock for 100 dollars, and both go up 20 bucks, then you didnt benefit your self by that buy and sell, you just stayed at the exact spot where you would have been had you not made the move in the first place.

    I am saying in this in regard to the upcoming season, obviously down the road the move might look like a brilliant move. But it seems like a rebuilding move for a team who should be looking to improve on a 12 win team and shouldnt be rebuilding.
