    Is the problem with the direction the team is going? Or is with the execution of the steps used to follow that direction?

    Oftimes, Keim’s individual moves seem fine, but when you pile them all together, it seems like he doesn’t have a grand strategy. Why did we sign Terrell Suggs on the eve of free agency? Why give David Johnson a record contract when he hadn’t played effectively in a year? What was the plan at WR? Remember how we signed Michael Crabtree for some reason??

    Every now and again one of these moves works out, and you get some value. But it’s not roster-building.

    Of course there's always subtleties. Like, Kyler is way better than I expected him to be, and we wore the red on red this season IIRC, so those are positives.

    Just to be clear, I'm not asking how we felt about the direction in the offseason, just where we are in the final weeks of the season with the direction as it stands now. Their ideas were what they were, but right now, we're basically all standing here saying "now what?"

    This is very much a situation where we're just hoping KK/KM's offense can save us, and not much of anything else.

    I believe the K1/KK pairing can be successful.

    But I dont believe in the defense or Keim.

    I think the direction is very clear. Build around Kyler. Whether you agree with that direction or not is different.

    I doubt either will be fired. I hope I’m wrong.

    The direction is based on the past. This team is better than it was last year with more to look forward to, so I am happy with the direction its going.

    I think we would all agree, its not where we want to be yet.

    I wasn't saying we're average this season or even could be, if that's what you thought I meant? Just saying missed opportunities have cost us at least 4-5 wins this year. Even if we had 8 wins right now, still wouldn't make us average. Our defense is beyond crap. Last yrs defense was better & Steve Wilks is do do as a DC. You're right, we have plenty of cap space & a good draft position. Hopefully SK fixes this team? I have to hope for this because imo, he isn't going anywhere, so he will be making all the key decisions with personnel. There's no reason with the cap space we have, that we can't add at least 4 starters to each side of the ball next season. FA & the first 3 rounds of the draft. I want D. Brown from Auburn with our first pick, difference maker right there. If we sign a stud DT in FA (I have no idea who's available) then we need to take the OT from Iowa or Thomas from Georgia. KM needs protection but our defense needs to be fixed first imo.

    Ask me in the off-season. If Keim is fired, yes. If not, no.

    Keim had a top 5 grade on Murphy. So if no Murray..Bosa...yep.


    Good thing they didn't win more games last year..

    I feel like you just believe every stat that you see.

    Can you exactly name the 7 times Byron was scored on this season?

    I feel like Murphy has had a good rookie season, but he does get confused at times and has blown some coverages. He is awesome, and would be awesome in a zone scheme. He seems to have good instincts and has quick reaction time. I believe he will make a pro bowl in his career.

    Oh yea, I agree he has had mistakes, but I don’t buy into that stat at all.

    I really don’t buy Pro Bowls anymore, but I hope he makes All-Pro here & there.
