One thing is for sure our current D line is XFL level
Yeah, the excuses are so pathetic at this point. The NFL is a results business, and losing Zach Allen is a big L for Monti.lol. Imagine going directly to excuse-making for Michael’s second choice for the role.
We have top 10 cap space right now. The price will only go up next year. Cap space isn’t going to rush the passer in 2023.
If this is Monti's plan, he is stupid. The Patriot Way works with Tom Brady. It has never worked elsewhere. If Monti is overwhelmed already Bidwill hired the wrong guy.Steve Keim would have overpaid Allen and Murphy to stay since those were his guys. I just have a feeling that the "Patriot" way, aka Monti way, is going to be to build primarily through the draft.
The more I think about it the more I think we aren't hanging onto the 3rd pick. I also think Monti may feel overwhelmed with the Kyler contract he inherited so he is clearing the cap space starting now.
What do you believe the problem with our cap situation is? How is letting Zach Allen leave a solution to it?Well I don’t like it, but I kind of understand it.
i think the plan is to get a ton of picks in this draft by trading down, like 15 or more, fix our cap situation, and hopefully coach them all up.
If the plan this year is to tank for the #1 or #2 pick, trade it for an absolute haul and build an insane team around Kyler, this place is gonna blow up.
I have a wait and see approach with Monti. I have zero expectations for 2023, but after that I'd love to see this team be ready to compete for the playoffs.If this is Monti's plan, he is stupid.

Someone is going to have to play 5-technique next year and the year after.Putting 15 million into a good not great d lineman when that is half your cap space and you have a ton of holes is probably not advisable.
It doesn't have to be structured that way though. They could have structured his contract in a fashion that would be a very low cap number this year, by giving a large signing bonus.I have a wait and see approach with Monti.

I fear there may be a poverty mindset, but in the same breath, I feel the majority of the board agrees with the decision to let an elite player like Hopkins leave. As another poster just mentioned, if they only have 30 mil in cap space and a ton of holes, does it make sense to give half of it to a single player in Allen?
All I know is Monti has inherited a dumpster fire of a roster and if he needs to burn it down to the ground rather than keep putting bandaids on it like Keim did, I think I may be in favor of being patient if it means more longterm success.
Would love to see this team start finally building the right way by investing heavily in the trenches.
