I laugh at all the athletic comments about Jones. The Pats have done ok with QBs like this.

On a side note, I really hate it when people pronounce 2021 as two thousand and twenty one. It’s twenty twenty one.

One thousand nine hundred seventy seven


Unfortunately I do believe we will have this problem for the next 80 years. Two thousand is still a palatable number of syllables, even if longer than twenty.

Not like we’re going to have an O Line this season anyhow. Maybe they back into the playoffs somehow but that just prolongs the stupidity.

My point is that the system they will run if Newton is starter is very different than what they would run with Jones, so it could slow Jones' development/opportunities.
Whereas if Fields had been the one who fell to 15, the system would be more of a match.
Just don't want a wasted year.

Agreed, but there's one caveat to that: I think Jones is going to be the starter pretty much right away when all is said and done. He really is the perfect fit to what they prefer to do.

And I cannot stress enough how this opens up the rest of the draft for them. They are not using all these picks - the roster is already nearing completion. I'd love to see them nab one of these remaining receivers in Round 2, like Elijah Moore. And then take the third rounder and combine it with one of the fourth rounders to move up and get another offensive lineman or cornerback for depth purposes. By retaining their picks, they have the flexibility to do that.

Moore would be a perfect Edelman replacement.
If he goes before they pick, they should go after Shi Smith from South Carolina in about the 5th round as a slot guy.

Enjoy our A A Ron Robinson, headache. He’s a good piece of talent.

Might have to take Smith in the fourth at this rate, but I’d be down with that.

Yea I mean I guess the caveat in all of this here is that Gettleman actually stockpiled a decent number of picks for what is supposed to be a deep draft next year - so if the wheels come off this season somebody not named Dave Gettleman can get off to a good start in 2022.

At this point last year Jarrett Stidham was your QB.

Cam could always be cut.

Right. The only benefit is that the rest of the division is roughly as bad if not worse. Trader Dave might end up back in the wilderness, Judge stays no matter what. Question is what Jones shows this year that makes him their guy or do they end up potentially picking a new QB in the assumed talent pool of next year’s draft.

My God, is there going to be a fraction of a second where Washington has a better starting QB than the Packers? This is rarer than a blue moon. This is like one of those obscure circumstances from a horror movie where the villain comes back every 100 years to seek vengeance.
