Quote from: TecnoGenius on January 19, 2024, 05:03:21 AMWow, I just saw on 3down that OTT is picking up Rhymes and have Addison (how did I forget that?). Plus if they get Schoen, they could be looking at a legit WR corps and pretty good Dru-led air attack.That would be great if by labor day OTT could challenge TOR/MTL for wins.
Quote from: TecnoGenius on January 19, 2024, 04:29:24 AMI know these types of just-before-FA trades happen a lot, but how does this work again for OTT? Dru still will become FA in just a short while, no? And OTT still has to woo, convince him he likes it there, and sign him, no?Kind of like when BLM was "traded" to HAM?So, does this ever not work out for the acquiring team? Has someone done this then lost the player a couple of weeks later?Or is that 5th DP conditional upon him signing in FA?I wish Dru well (but hope he sucks when OTT plays WPG). If he's the next Tom Brady we can always try to get him back in FA 2026.P.S. This may free up Piggy... who may make a good dev guy / #2 / injury backup. Note: not SY guy! No sneaks for Piggy! Prukop would have to stay as SY. Piggy looked good when in as "real" QB.

Quote from: Waffler on January 19, 2024, 09:44:25 PMTecno, you watched every game twice, surely you noticed that either other teams have his roll figured out or he is not quick enough to do it. At 35 he 100% cannot stand in and take hits all season. Playoffs I would say you got to leave it all out there, that's different. Anyway a big part of his game has always been to buy time and connect after the scramble. He had the receivers here to do it too. Schoen was the best at that but Lawler and Demski were very good also. Possibly we are going to need some playbook changes. Interested to see how stubborn Buck is or if he will adapt.
