    Let this sink in. TB given the keys to the franchise and he has spent every dime allowable. His masterpiece architecture through free agency amounts to Suh, Alonso, Maxwell and Branch.

    So, if you had that much money to spend are those the players you would have signed?

    Reality time. Stop spending in free agency. Sadly, we draft better. And we've not drafted good for decades. That's how bad we are in the offseason.

    Tunsil is not a guard.

    Get a new Center and you'll see the O-Line immediately improve!

    Zach Brown...Sure could have used him this past season
    13 games and 127 tackles for $2,300,000

    yet we paid Timmons...Another fireable offense among a long list

    For all intents and purposes he was a rookie tackle.

    He’s part of the solution on our line no need to turn our backs to that.

    All I know is he played way better at LG his rookie year compared to LT this past year. I would have no problem moving him back to LG if they found a better LT.

    it doesn't really matter what you deem excuses versus legitimate reasoning - you can think they should move tunsil back to guard all day long....but it won't make a difference because the FO views it the same way I do....in my opinion, it legitimizes my argument to a point far beyond yours

    if he plays like crap in 2018 i'm sure they'll consider moving him back to guard, but they aren't going to play shell-game with our first round tackle selection just because he didn't play well his first year playing LT in the NFL

    Sorry, I "liked" simply due to comedic value. Not in relation to the truth, just the S.A. value. :)

    no. I saw the same mediocre team as everyone here. But Tunsil is an elite LT, right?

    Yeah, he’s elite. That’s exactly what I said.

    You must run out of shovels shoveling thru all the ****ty arguments you have.

    I just saw where the Rams will likely franchise Sammy Watkins. They have a different situation (having just traded for him).

    However, in my opinion, we got Jarvis for free the past four years. In my opinion, he is worth two Sammy Watkins (to us). I would see the franchise amount primarily reimbursing Landry for the past four years of production and fire.

    I personally think franchising him is a no-brainer if we don't work out a long term deal. And I'm good with that. I don't think there's any way he hits FA this year (unless the team's view of his emotional shenanigans is much more negative than we know).

    No, no, no, no. You never pay someone to "make up" for anything. He got paid as a second round pick. Now he'll get paid top 10 money as a receiver. Forget about where a guy was drafted, forget about what the team is paying/overpaying other players on the team. All that is irrelevant. You set your price as to what you think he is worth now to the team and if it is not good enough, you wish him well and let him go. Take the third round comp pick, spend the $$ you save on JL on other needs. Remove the emotion from the will to keep him.

    I'm talking as a fan. I have no idea how the team views it. If Watkins is worth the franchise tag to the Rams, Landry is worth more than that to us.

    1) Get Tannehill healthy...and draft a young QB who could eventually challenge.

    2) Aquire or draft a real seam/red zone tight end.

    3) Ensure the O-line is truly complete and a unit in either free agency/draft once and for all...this should actually be #1.

    4) Get Raekwon healthy add some more speed to the linebacker Corp.
