    ***2021 NFL Draft IGT*** - Day 3

    Teams are bitching about COVID making it harder to evaluate players. That doesn’t translate to fewer NFL-quality players, only to less info to figure out who they are. More late round picks means more chances to grab one of the good ones...

    Something kind of clicked - Matt Nagy holds the power now doesn't he?

    Umhhhh, Nagy had his play-calling responsibilities taken away last year. That’s about as far removed from being in control as a HC can get. I’m guessing his end of year review said “learn to run the effn ball or else”. Drafting Fields was about solving the Bears’ festering QB problem, not...

    Elephant in the room, Nagy

    Best friend of a developmental QB is a solid running game. Nagy needs to commit to running the ball as part of a balanced offense, and to stick with it even when the other team's defense throttles it early. Unfortunately, that's not Nagy's track record. His instinct is go for the chunk plays...

    Pace, Nagy, Future.

    Despite what many of the delusional types around here think, Pace's job is likely secure. He's done decently rebuilding the Bears' talent base from the dumpster fire of late-JA and Emery eras. George M. is a continuity guy. He's mentioned a number of times that the Steelers are the...

    Tom Brady Effect

    C'mon, too easy.... 1983 - six QBs (Elway, Blackledge, Kelly, Eason, O'Brien, Marino), three of which ended up in the HoF...

    49ers deciding between Mac Jones and Trey Lance at #3

    This! The weeks leading up to the draft are just a giant mass of speculation & rumor that gets distilled into "substance", always attributed to unidentified sources. Once the draft actually happens, that "substance" also always turns out to be BS. The 49ers have known since the day they moved...

    ESPN: Middle-Round QB Draft Picks

    Is that the same Connor Cook that Jerry Jones tried to trade up for at the top of the 4th round in 2016 after failing to move up to get Paxton Lynch in the 1st round, and finally settling for Dak late in the 4th round? QBs in the top 10 are a bit of a crap-shoot. QBs outside of the top 10 are...

    6th round picks

    I read somewhere that teams would likely be looking to move their 2021 late round picks for next year picks due to the much greater uncertainty with the evaluations of this class (optouts, reduced/suspended schedules, no combine, no private workouts, etc.). But I'm with you. This looks more...

    Things I Believe About This Draft...

    Everyone would love to see a quality QB or sure-thing LT available at 20. The probability of that happening is zero for QBs and damn near zero for LTs. Yes, you can take a developmental QB or decent LT at 20 and then hope for the best, but that's being myopic in terms of the big picture. At...

    Things I Believe About This Draft...

    The NFL is the 800lb gorilla of sports. It doesn't react to other sports and their seasons. It does whatever it wants, and they all do their best to stay out of its way. The draft is the NFL's flagship event of its off-season. From a marketing perspective, sticking the draft right at the...

    Things I Believe About This Draft...

    There's too narrow a focus here on perceived need (QB, OT, WR) with regard to the high picks. My interpretation of Pace's track record with his high picks (rds 1-3...) is that he looks to build/sustain the talent base, not fill needs with those picks. He makes his need picks in the mid/late...

    Yall want Mac Jones but not Trey Lance?

    And Vince Evans, Bobby Douglass, Walter Payton, to name even a few more... Seriously, mobility/elusiveness can make good QBs better, sometimes even great, but it won’t make marginally-talented QBs good ones. In the end, it comes down to their arm (accuracy & strength) and their ability to read...

    OT: Mac Jones going at 3?

    Sighhhh. It's the Alabama pro day and the Ohio State pro day, not the Mac Jones pro day and the Justin Fields pro day,,, While both teams are loaded with pro prospects, Alabama is particularly heavy with top tier prospects this year. That's reason alone enough to send the GM & HC to...

    The problem I see with Mitchell Trubisky is this...................

    Mitch's fundamental weakness, or more appropriately fundamental flaw, is that he doesn't see the whole field. He gets tunnel vision that zeros in on a receiver and his defender(s). This is particularly the case with A-Rob. Against Houston, Mitch sees A-Rob beating his guy to the corner of the...

    Did Nagy Lie?

    Nagy is the HC. He isn’t abdicating responsibility for the play calling. He’s just delegating it, while retaining his oversight role to suggest or overrule. No one should have an issue with that per se. But there’s a fine line between suggesting/overruling and just taking full control back...
