To be fair Cleveland made a TON of changes, new coach, new offense that called for deeper routes, and then the OL wasn't the same due to losing guys and then injury.

At least for now it seems like we're going to be relatively intact on the OL, and the coaching staff.

I don't know what to expect yet but the best part of the deal for me is that option do we take Jeudy or Lamb and get an on paper outstanding WR group, or do we take BPA on defense or OL? The point for me is now while I still love Jeudy or Lamb, they're not a NEED, nearly as much as they were before we got Hopkins.

He's apparently got a few years left on a deal but wants a new deal so we'll have to handle that well, but man the potential is fun to think about.

Take BPA on Defense or OL. Can’t go wrong with either. David Johnson’s contract was an albatross and a weight hanging around the neck of the franchise. They appeared to fix it and open up the first round pick for a player who might actually help the team be competitive. If they draft an O Lineman who turns out to be serviceable, the offense could be dominant. If they draft an elite defensive impact player, the team could be good on both sides of the ball. Wow

Young dynamic Qb.
Top 3 wr in his prime
Young rb in his prime.
Slot receiver ready to blossom in Kirk.
Fitz.
No losses on the o-line and maybe an addition.

Things are shaping up nicely my friends
True, but can we stop ANYBODY?

Let’s not forget we had the WORST defense in the NFL!!! One of the worst I’ve ever witnessed in my life as a Cards fan in 45 years. Talent is lacking in critical spots & I don’t believe for a second that Joseph is worth 2cents as a DC.

We are in terrific shape to stack this defense now. Still have free agency and the draft to boot.

I agree about our D & that says a LOT because the Cardinals have too numerous to count bad D's since I started watching them in 64.

Hopkins is going to love Kingbury’s demeanor compared to redass O’Brien. He’s been there since Hop’s 2nd year in the league and everyone hates him. This is the only year I’ve ever wanted to be on Hard Knocks.
