Quote from: Sir Blue and Gold on December 06, 2023, 03:44:35 PMThe truth is it depends how much of a drop off it is. First and foremost he needs to be able to make all the plays a MLB does. We struggled with mobile QBs. Your experience can only make up for so much lack of speed. We don't need a coach on the field. Richie Hall is a great coordinator. Our defense has a lot of experience even without him. We do need an athletic MLB that can still play sideline to sideline, blitz and drop cover running backs sometimes. Not sure Bighill can do it anymore, to be honest.
Quote from: dd on December 06, 2023, 10:42:18 PMYou're right, he's lost a step for sure and it cost us vs the run/scramble for sure, and he'll likely lose another step this season. Given his age, I m surprised we didn't go after Sankey and have a succession plan at MLB, it would have been the difference this year for sure. Interested to see how this plays out, does he get hurt and call it a career or struggle to keep up on the field....
Quote from: Pigskin on December 08, 2023, 03:39:08 PMI am glad WJ5 has signed. Mr. Walter's has a lot of work to do. Jeffcoat will be 33, $185K last season. Bryant will be 38, $190 last season.Bighill will be 35, and is coming off of a torn calf muscle, $165K.Hardrick will be 34, $150K last season. Schoen was only making $70K last season. Brady was around $100K.
Quote from: Blue In BC on December 08, 2023, 05:02:43 PMWe had some big contracts and now need to re-new these players. Whether we can afford to keep everyone IDK. Schoen is going to be looking for $250K ( IMO ) and maybe more. If he signs before some of some other big names, we may some tough decisions to make.If what we hear about Oliveria looking to the NFL is true that will be out of our control.In any case I'd expect a few more signings before the end of they year. Who signs 1st is always interesting but too early to make any conclusions about who we don't expect back.

Quote from: theaardvark on December 08, 2023, 11:02:33 PMWith Lawler already at close to $300k, how many other receivers can we pay that much?This is going to be a painful off season. There are going to be a lot of players we cannot afford. It will require a judicious use of offers and watching out for who is willing to stay for less (like Bailey or Bighill) and who is worth matching offers on. And who we have in the "next man up" category. Walters has been a wonder the last 5 years, but this year, he's going to need to be a magician.We will sign some players early, and we will sign some players after everyone else has spent thier budget.And we will have a great recruitment year.
Quote from: Pete on December 08, 2023, 10:24:58 PMIn regards to Shoen no way does he get more than 225k. Lawler and Lewis are special in terms of their ability to make catches. How many highlight reel catches did Schoen make?His success is how he fits into our scheme and Collaros . If another team signs him for big dollars he may find it difficult to replicate his last 2 seasons
