Cheers Chism - good luck next week. Do you have a preferred game? Both look super tough.Commiserations guys but kudos on a game well played and we have always struggled against Seattle.
I gave us no chance against yourselves but our defense was excellent stopping your run for probably the first time this season but gee Wilson still looked dangerous when he aired it and burnt us most of the time when doing it. I am still scratching my head as to why your coaches did not let him do it more often as we are vulnerable in the secondary to QBs that use their legs to get open.
Anyway congrats on a decent season ( after it was widely claimed to be a rebuild by some media ) that saw you guys totally dismantle the Chiefs and many others on the way but today i guess it was our turn for a change and trust me that i can't say that often this time of year!
All the best for next season though regarding drafts and player signings etc and see you next match up.
6 one way and half a dozen the other!Cheers Chism - good luck next week. Do you have a preferred game? Both look super tough.
Eh, it’s his big payday really. Given the Kirk contract I’m actually pretty happy given the guaranteed dough doesn’t apply if we cut him.If the rumoured amount is true, other than the $65m signing bonus, it's not as big a hit on the cap as expected. It may mean we lose out on some weapons but Russ has shown over the years that he is worth it with the number of games he has won off his own back.
I didn't expect him to be such a greedy campaigner but hopefully it sets a bit of a precedent amongst the top QBs and other teams start having that problem.
We were going to have to pay the man. Pretty happy with the sounds of the deal- we have 12 picks before we trade back at all, plus now have cap for Wagner.I think Earl will be OK - coming out and saying he wants to retire as a Hawk means he doesn't hate us.
Clark getting traded for some picks including a first rounder. Looks like a good trade - sad to lose him but we are getting a great deal in return.
We were always going to trade down and pick up a 2nd. I think we could have picked up 3rd if we really wanted to. I would have liked us to keep 30 and taken Baker who the Giants ended up taking as we need a CB and as a UGA fan, I want a Georgia player here. However, I trust Pete and John to do what is best. Most of our value the last few seasons has been from the 3rd round onwards and we have 6 picks between 192 and 142.
