Why did you pick the Jags? Why not compare us to the 49ers who are on just year 3 of their coach and GM? Much better comparison overall.
San Fran had expectations and a new QB last year. He got hurt, out for the season. They lost most of their games. Drafted Bosa who is a huge difference maker and already 10x better than Flowers at a fraction of the cost), got their QB back and are now a playoff team and in the running for a first round bye, followed by a home playoff game. Something we haven’t achieved since 1991.
Literally, they are what we fail to do every time, because once the season is over, we continue to try to get that 4th place NFCN ribbon and get as many meaningless wins as possible so that we can get a lower pick and take a project, instead of a no-brainer impact player.
If we don’t send our broken backed franchise QB to AZ last year and sit him down for the season instead of being morons, we could very easily been in position to draft Bosa instead of a project tight end.
Instead, we draft TJH who has had very little impact. In fact, he may never have a bigger game than what he had in week 1. Just a monster game that helped the Lions tie the worst team in the NFL from the previous year, who was starting a brand new QB. The higher the pick, the less likely our GM fucks it up. Ragnow, Davis, Decker, Hockenson. 4 first round draft picks and very little impact. Our GM simply isn’t good enough/smart enough to pick between 8-15 and get a player who plays better than a 3rd rounder. That has been proven.
