Tua Tagovailoa has 5 passing TDs and 0 INTs in his first 3 starts.
That is tied for the 3rd most passing TDs in a QB’s first 3 starts without throwing an INT since 1950.
3-0 record. With all due respect… pretty cringey stuff having to listen to some of our great residents talk about what a great selection Okudah was… but that’s the great thing about sports. It’s a results based business and you can’t hide from reality. The Lions blew it. Again. And fans were doing cartwheels about taking a terrible player. Again.
Lions had an opportunity to change the entire franchise with one selection… and they took a scrub CB. Quinn doesn’t deserve to make another selection as GM.
Well your right that Quinn doesn’t deserve another pic. But calling Okaduh a bust is ridiculous this system has made probowlers look like bust, for those calming to so smart yet they don’t notice the lack of pass rush or the fact that not one defenseive player as looked good in this defense.
Stafford WAS. NOT. GOING. ANYWHERE. So QB was off our board. Period. Let it go. You want to make a case for OT, make it. You want to make a case for DT, make it. You want to make a case for Henderson over Okudah if we weren’t going to play him as a primarily press man corner, make it. THIS STAFF was NOT going to blow a 3OA pick on a guy who WOULD NOT PLAY a SNAP unless Stafford got hurt. If Stafford gets a career ending injury this season, then take your victory lap. Shy of that it simply did NOT make sense.
Tua MAY end up having a superior career than Stafford, but he has one hell of a long way to go to prove that. He had a devastating injury. He could be amazing for 2 years, and take a career ender and THAT was a major concern on Tua. Maybe not, but trying to rub Okudah over Tua in peoples faces on a team where he wouldn’t have seen any meaningful time this year is just lame. Yes we can trade Stafford NEXT year and not eat the 17 Million we would have this year. Perhaps if Quinntricia was in year one or two they would have considered that. But we can’t live in Bizzaro world. Quintricia needed to save their asses THIS SEASON and spending a 3OA pick on a guy who would not play was not going to happen. Has Okudah lit the world on fire? No he hasn’t. He has played infinitely more this season than Tua would have and it was a one year situation for this staff. They weren’t going to draft a player for the next regime and sir, neither would you if you were in their seats.
