Are you thinking of the one he sat down on? Because he literally could have avoided it by stepping up in the pocket. He literally just gave up.
100%. And the other one where he started to drop before the rusher "gently" grabbed his legs. Kyler played bigtime scared. Never seen a NFL QB play that way...ever.

That 16-18 total is based off of a guess on what the cap will be next year. As far as I know, it hasn't been set yet.
It has been... so those numbers are real if not understated. $208.2mm for 2022. Expanding over $25mm.

I didn't hear that. Nice.

You aren't going to replace the amount of players you want to replace in one year without the draft and a competent GM. Do you think we have one of those?

Through draft, trade and current roster players it can easily be done.... especially considering the lack of talent at numerous positions. Don't think it would take much. Again, we had 11 new starters in 2021. 11.

How did that work out for us?

We aren't going to agree on this subject. KM didn't throw is OL under the bus. When a QB doesn't have trust in his protection, has a lack of weapons at his disposal - I think you'd be hard pressed to find any QB willing to get crushed with no resemblance of confidence around him. I believe QB is willing to take those hits if he knows he is going to rewarded in doing so (a key play, first down, touchdown, etc). I'd rather not have my supposed franchise QB get crushed when the reward simply is not there.

AGAIN, I feel I have to preface anything before the "I hate Kyler blame him for everything gang" attacks me. KYLER played like crap!!! Just horrible. He should be embarrassed of his play. All I am saying is I don't believe any QB not named Rodgers or Brady wouldn't have sucked last night given the same Oline, same weapons and same coach. Others may have sucked less, but only a few would have succeed. Give Kyler what KC gave Mahomes this off-season... a offensive line. Then if he sucks, I'll join the "I hate Kyler blame him for everything gang"
You contradict yourself so much! You saw you totally get why he sucked after trying to absolutely excuse his crappy play. Your two paragraphs just don't connect.

Am I the only one confused here officially he was sacked twice yesterday. one of them was the one where Miller beat Hump around the edge, Hump pushed him and he went right into Kylers legs. Live I was waiting for the flag for low hit but on replay I saw the push so realized why no penalty. The other was a split sack between Donald and Gaines, the one he sat down on. He actually tried to step up but there were 2 guys there and Donald jumped a bit so Kyler tried to duck him and then Gaines was there so he just sat down.

The real issues were the plays he wasn't sacked on but he panicked(the picksix) or made a terrible throw(the screen pick) I didn't have an issue with either of the sacks he actually took.

No, actually I did not. He had a crap game, but he’s not the reason we suck as a whole… but cool.

Kind of irrelevant to discuss as long as the owner is cool with what’s going on.
Yup. Knowing that at most, the only change will be firing Vance as the sacrificial lamb, there is just zero reason or energy at this point to discuss what needs to happen to become a legit contender.

Defense:
Big focus on D-line and edge rush. We are locked in with Collins and Simmons at LB, two young CB’s in Wilson and Murphy and set at safety with Baker and Thompson. Slot CB would need to be addressed but D-line most important.

Offense:
Guards big need, Hopefully keep Ertz and Williams at TE. Conner over edmunds and I think Green is a good #2 while Moore has potential as an Edelman type slot. The issue is Murray. If he can’t/refuses to operate under center then he’s not an NFL QB. If Kliff can’t implement this into the offense then he’s not an NFL coach.

Not including the end zone pick 6, yes, Kyler was officially sacked twice. I happen to believe that on the Von Miller sack, Kyler made zero effort to elude or escape a rusher who was falling down at his feet... IMHO, all other NFL QB's playing in a playoff game, would've made the effort to escape, or, try to make a play. And the second official sack (Donald/Gaines), is simply laughable. 100% of other NFL QB's would never, ever have taken the action of simply sitting down, untouched. There was a lane available to Kyler to his right, that he could've easily taken as both Donald and Gaines were being pushed to his left shoulder side. Instead, he played it scared and simply sat down. Arguably the biggest wuss move I have seen from a QB. Certainly the most chicken-shyte move I've seen in a post-season game.
