That is a tough salary to trade.
And then there's Logan.
At some point....yeah
No. Havent seen him in THE offense yet.
All GMs have to gamble. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t, league wide. I don’t particularly like Keim, but I’d have to be convinced that his replacement is any better because they all miss all the time.
He definitely always gets the OL picks/signings wrong.
Heck no draft all oline next draft and sign a few than get a rb in draft after next if need be
If you believe what SK says, he will continue to place BPA over need in the draft.
If a RB or OL prospect isn't rated as highly as someone at another position, he's not gonna reach for him.
That takes skill.lol
Yes we should draft a RB next year or trade for a motivated vet. I’m not on the David Johnson bandwagon, he falls down on first contact.
Pretty sure the contract we have with him makes it hard to do much with him other than keep him. Silly Kiem as usual giving a big contract to guy a coming off an injury before playing a single game after having 1 great year. He did this with TM too.
Kiem is always overpaying and scared to lose a player in free agency instead of seeing how things shake out. Quality teams give big contracts to bellwether players. Kiem hands them out like he's prospecting.
How many times have you seen a no name RB step in behind a stud starter who gets injured and is comparable or sometimes even better, quite often. That is usually because the success of the RB is linked closer to the quality of the players around him, more than WRs. Point is serviceable RBs who rarely see a snap until the opportunity presents itself.
Look, you are really bad on Keim.
LG - Cooper looked great till his injurie and is still in the league, probably not a ProBowler, but probably servicable, proably better then what we have now.
LT - Valdeheer was great in his first years, got worse and worse.
RT - Massie was great, he was paid by chicago way more than we wanted to spend for a RT
C - Cole looked like a rookie last year but he got better at the end of the year maybe not a lost cause
LG - Mike Iupati was good in his first two years till his body broke down on him
He brought in another 10 O-line players and drafted at least 5 more. So from my perspective, he did quite well on some point, but it isn't always easy to get 5 pro bowler on the o-line
Hopefully he finds another one but I'm not confident that we will see someone this year. Next year should be O-line improvement and maybe in a later round a young dynamic RB, but still, first the O-line, D-line and RB is already set for two years after that, we will see.
I don’t think we’ve ever used the RBs we have - you have to commit to the run - last 2 ha came from best run games in the nfl and got pass happy - now we got pass happy and hope he runs more! Damn it 8m tired of losing with talent because they have not got the sense to establish and committed to a run game like champions do - freaking stupid
Let's be totally honest. O line remains ineffective. But by the same token David Johnson isn't near the RB he was in 2016. That was obvious last year when despite the O line problems DJ went down on the first hint of contact . For whatever reason he is not the same. Any objective observer can see that. While it will never happen I would trade him right now for a Joe Thomas quality O lineman. Of course there aren't any of those around and even if they were no GM in his right mind would trade that type of player for DJ. I do think we should give DJ a try this year but in the absence of a complete transformation we need to find a new starting RB next off season.
