These signings scream 2013 Jaguars. I’ll be surprised if we win 4 games next year. What a joke

I mean, they're not going to the Superbowl..

but they have a much improved LB corps on paper and they brought in some competition for Herndon at CB.

The draft is where impact can be made... CAN be.

After the Coughlin aftermath, and the cap situation, signing big name splashy guys wasn't happening this off season.
Plug holes with stop gap guys and allow the draft to unfold as it should. Also freeing up cap space to hopefully sign Yan to a long term deal.

I'm glad they aren't cap cuffing themselves with stupid signings in a year that is likely to be a "growing pains" type season.

This is pretty much what a standard FA period looks like for teams. Dave's record spending limitless pocketbook of the previous few years that built us a talented but extremely hollow team is the extreme outlier.

True...man this is crazy. Watch how many people try to justify how good the moves are, what kind of comp it brings in and how much it helps with the cap.

So, who should we sign instead?

Depends on who they all walk away with in next month's draft and whether or not they catch any breaks with this year's schedule. This year's schedule is tough already on paper. 

I would like to see a 7 - 9 outing at the very least. But I am expecting another 5 - 6 win season. Fan base is demoralized. They're playing two "home" games across the pond. Just not much to be excited about outside of Minshew and this year's draft at this point.

2020 is 100% a full rebuild year. Adjust your expectations accordingly.

Never. I refuse to adjust my expectations.

Might be a little to late but we have needs at alot of positions. Early we could have locked up a few different positions like  DB or Safety, TE, there were better DTs out then who we picked up. You keep the good you have and work them in with draft picks.Also is Al woods not  only 1 year younger than Calais, if you going older could have kept Calais for the production. Not sure if you read that he was he said

For some reason, it doesn't matter how much production you have, when you turn a certain age, guys are trying to get rid of you before you just can't do it anymore. That's good motivation for me, because I'm always trying to prove them wrong."
 
It would make sense to keep the solid pieces and work the draft picks in. We could have worked something in with Calais with all of the cap space we have cleared. Now we are using that cap space to sign average to below average bodies. Imagine if we kept Bouye ,Calais, and Yan, we still would have been able to sign Schobert, really like the only FA that will make a difference. Terrible front office still. I hope they prove me wrong tho

I think we had decent teams during those years, just the head coach couldn't put a working formula together :/

This x 100000

I am extremely impressed by the discipline that Dave Caldwell has shown so far in this years free agency thus far.
Respect the game. Play with a sense of urgency.


1.) Take care of the ball. Win the turnover battle.

2.) It's all about 3rd down. Win on 3rd down to win the game.

I think it was more by necessity, and I personally wouldn't have chosen Schobert to be our splash signing, but it has been a good FA value wise.

Did you used to post on here under a different name? Just curious because I thought I recognized your writing style...

As I am listening to the names of our FA signing, I am asking myself, "Who are these scrubs?"

Who are you? Big Grin 

I wasn't sure who they all were either but, after some reading all seem like solid, money-wise signings.

The only guy that's a shoe-in to start is Schobert and maybe Eifert. I hope you knew those names. 

The rest will have to earn a spot or project as role players, rotation, depth, or camp fodder. 
Not knowing the names of that second group is not a big deal.
