Default If you were GM, how would you improve this franchise?

2-14 last year. We had expectations of 6-7 wins this year. Instead, 4-10 and the laughingstock of the NFL.

5 years of this misery has to stop. What would you do to change this team?

The Dream had mentioned about Peppers.

I took a look back at our 2002 draft Our scouts must have been smoking crack and hitting the vodka when they made our picks.

Isn't the definition of insanity to do the same thing over and over again and expecting different results?

Is Bob McNair insane?

Default Re: If you were GM, how would you improve this franchise?

First off, in the first round, I would draft Troy Smith as our QB. I would try and get a trade for picks for David Carr. If not possible, just keep Carr.

If a second rounder for Cedric Benson does not go through, then I would take either Marshawn Lynch from California or Michael Bush from Louisville (if possible in the second round). The next five rounds, I would focus on CB and OL.

We could get Asante Samuel from the Patriots and Lance Briggs from Chicago is we try hard enough. They would help out our secondary a lot, and we could use the draft picks for sone OL. Also, if Dwight Freeney does not resign with the Colts, we could try him, too, but by that time, I think we would be above the salary cap.

The Texans should be paying me to drink their beer and attend their games.

McNair should be embarrassed with the personnel he put together.

I think you may have your rounds switched up, but I want the players you want.

1) Peterson or Lynch in the first round.
2) Troy Smith in the second. (he'll measure only 5'11 at the combine dropping him to the second.)

Trade Carr for a 2nd - i think he's shown enough earlier in the season for someone to go for it (Raiders?....). Draft an exciting new face in the first -Smith, Peterson - whoever comes out of the pre-draft stuff looking the best; then either use the two 2nd rounders as they are, use them to move back up into the 1st (and grab the bpa), or package them in a trade for a vet that can help the team. That's a start at least......

Default Re: If you were GM, how would you improve this franchise?

I'll say it again (as I have on other threads), it starts in the trenches. After 5 years of a patchwork O-line, and yes I know injuries have been a problem, we have to get this fixed or it won't matter who is back there as QB after Carr leaves. They will be running for their lives! Picking up Plummer next year or drafting Quinn I don't think will make any difference if the O-line is not fixed. Plummer is older and slower than Carr and throwing Quinn in there would probably yield no better results because he will be just a rookie.

I agree that Carr is damaged goods and at this point I don't think he will be salvageable. I'm just hoping that we will be able to get a draft pick (any draft pick) for him when they do decide to move him.

If you saw that game today against New England, you know we have a lot more holes to fill than just QB. It would be nice to do this thing right this time and fix this O-line for whoever will be QB next year. And the way we're going now we might have a shot at drafting Joe Thomas in the 1st round. In the 2nd we could pickup secondary help (unless we get it in FA), and then in the 3rd we could get a center like Kyle Young or perhaps get Kevin Kolb and start grooming him to take over. Either way we have a lot of holes to fill on both sides of the ball and I think it's going to take more than just this draft and FA to fill them. JMHO!

Default Re: If you were GM, how would you improve this franchise?

Clone enough Dunta's to fix the secondary.

Clone enough Mario's to fix the D-Line.

Clone a couple of DeMeco's for good measure.

Find a way to play without an O-Line. Oh, wait, we have been playing with no O-Line since day 1.

OK, seriously.
I just can't see a scenario that doesn't have Carr back next year. With that in mind, find a mix of vets and draftee's to fix the O-Line and Secondary. With whatever cap we have left over, find a pressure guy for the D-Line.

Keep Sage if he is healthy. I really think we need a strong back up if Kubiack can't get in Carr's head and fix him by mid-season next year.

If we can get a deal on good speed RB, I sure would take a hard look at that too.
