Re: Haskins released

How much we pay a QB ? I happen to believe that with a Qb like Stafford and a solid draft (Wr, mlb, db, ) we can be a contender now ... look at Tampa and Brady .. we are in a similar situation.. we can win 10-11 games with a Good QB ..

I would consider Fitzpatrick over Alex to come in and compete with Kyle Allen who is coming off injury along with a Heineken/mid round draftee.

Fitzpatrick is better than Alex and would be cheaper than his current number.
I'd take a flier on Fitz especially if Smith and RR don't see something they like at our draft spots. Agree Dak isn't going anywhere. Dallas knows if he was healthy they probably already had the division wrapped up. Allen and Heinicke in reality probably won't get it done.

Re: Haskins released

My 2 thoughts for why Fitzpatrick would not be a good fit is that he isnt a quick read/throw guy and he takes chances. With our D, we dont need to press press press on offense as its not a race to the first one to 30 points wins. We can win comfortably and consistently 24-13 vs 37-27. We value possessions, play strong D and we win.

Then I looked up his stats. Fitzpatrick is second in the league in time from snap to throw at 2.2 seconds, behind Big Bens 2.1.

I was a "no to fitz" person 5 mins ago and am now putting his name in the hat with the 15 other options we have.

Interesting plan C if we dont draft a 1st rounder or get a Stafford type guy.

I know there is no chance of him coming back here, but if he did, would it be the only time in NFL history that a player drafted by an organization has played for the same team in separate stints?

^^ I'd imagine that's not very uncommon

Re: Haskins released

You are right. He completely slipped my mind. I'm guessing on QB's it's not that common, but i could be wrong on that too!

Re: Haskins released

Had to look it up, but two notables are Fran Tarkenton had 2 stints with Minnesota, and Boomer Esiason two stints with Cincy

I am probably just gun shy when it comes to drafting a QB based on history I know it needs to be done, I am also wary of giving up draft capital to trade for Ryan or Stafford.

Re: Haskins released

All in on going after a QB in FA. Our Defense is good. Windows are short in the NFL without a HOF QB. Always build through the draft, but the time is now!!

Go all in to win in 2021!

Stafford is the prize. Having a defense and a running game is a big incentive for him to sign here. Go go go.

I can't do it. That would mean $52+ million tied up in the QB position for 2021 (unless you cut Alex or he retires), not to mention the draft capital and/or players it would take to trade for him.

Can't do it.

Even if Smith retires we're tying up too much cap space with his number, Haskins and Stafford, when only 1 would be on the roster. Plus we're talking trade capitol on top. I'd go FA.

Fitz might work for year but I'm coming around to the idea of hoping Smith retires then we go with Tyrod Taylor for a year (or 2) as we're unlikely to get a starter picking bottom half round 1 and I don't agree with trading the farm for the #2 or #3 pick. If a top QB doesn't fall in our lap wherever we pick, I say ride a good FA for a year with this D and see if he's our man next year. I think our starter next year is not currently on the roster.
