Without knowing the health of RG3? I guess Kaepernick, Bradford, RG3. I know Kaepernick has been bad the past two years. I also know he played in two NFC title games.
I don't think the Titans wanted to make the trade, RIley. That's the key -- they wanted the player. Also, Barkley was traded for a 7th-rounder.
Think Eagles will win, but a bit too soon. Need to see how the week plays out.
I still think it's a rotation.
What should he be blamed for? Sticking by Chip?
I don't think he could get Mariota -- I don't think Tennessee wanted to trade that pick. But Chip needs to be able to win without just one QB, too.
To Matt's question -- you're correct. The WRs haven't helped. He also banked on a QB who has been too inconsistent. But he did build a good defense.
To the Carolina question -- you don't get to where they are by accident. They take good care of the football, they play tough defense. I give them a lot of credit. They deserve it. Cam is doing enough to win.
At some point, yes. But that's not in the short term.
He's a sure tackler who knows where to be on a given play.
I don't think they will. Of those three? Probably Tate, because of age and health.
Forget the term "starter" -- it's who has the most carries. I think Mathews plays more, but Murray still has the most. I think 60/40 in the other direction.
He's an outside cornerback, and their outside cornerbacks have been fine. I can't fault them for that. Nolan Carroll is playing better than expected. Rowe stepped in when injuries were a problem, but he's a depth player at this point.
Good question. I don't know the answer. I've wondered the same.
I wouldn't say "dumb." And it's OK to question Chip Kelly. But I think Lurie sees the big picture, and Chip is a smart coach with a vision. But he's made questionable decisions that deserve to be questioned.
Sure, but the key is Nelson Agholor. They need much, much more from him when he returns.
I don't think Chip's evaluation of players is his problem as much as his valuation of players.
I see your point, but you also think down the line. If Carroll didn't pan out -- or if they don't re-sign him -- then Rowe steps in. I'm surprised they didn't look at him more at safety. But they view him as an outside cornerback.
It's a possibility. Depends on Carroll's market value.
Very much so. Will be a key development to watch.
I'll have a better idea in 45 minutes when they practice. They need him back and productive. ...As for the edge rushers that I like, it's still really early. Bosa, Calhoun are the top guys. Need to see where the Eagles pick.
Very good chance of it. He helps Chip coordinate the offense, but it's Chip's offense.
The focal point, I assume you mean? They need to get him more involved. When this offense was best, they worked from the outside-in. They need a difference-maker on the outside, and Agholor was drafted to be that type of player.
