Bad organizations reach for injured wide receivers in the first round. Good organizations spend resources at the QB position and get value at the WR position in the 2nd-3rd rounds.
The Lions do what bad organizations do and the Steelers do what successful organizations do. It was a massive blunder by Holmes and his mishandling of the QB position should result in his termination (among many other reasons).
Williams has a rare skill set, but at the end of the day he is not a Jamar chase level prospect. Major blunder by Holmes.
In 3 years the Steelers will be where the Dolphins are now…. They have amazing cast with N Harris, Friermuth, Pickens, Claypool, and D Johnson- so if Pickett is the next Mahomes- the Steelers might win a SB year…. However if/when he’s not, all these guys contracts will be coming due and they will have wasted their primes with no QB…. It’s a gamble.
With the Steelers offensive cast, and defense. I would bet heavy that a Goff led team easily makes the playoffs this year.
I would like to think that Swift, Hock, Jamo, ASB, and Chark could ne similar to the above cast by end of the year. We have a better OL…. Our defense is well behind, but maybe closing the gap.
this regime is going to win with Goff next year, or drsft a QB top 3 next year, or be gone by 2024 for sure.
I liked Pickett the best but Sam Howell was my guy instead of the safety.
I wouldn’t have flipped out at Pickett at the Jameson pick, but it would have shocked me. I think they’re believers in Goff. And I am a little after the last 6 games. I believe with great o-line play he can play well. And I believe we have a pretty good o-line.
I didn’t mean to reply to your post, more to add to it. I agree with you 100%- my bad.
I think we are about to see some Mahomes and A Rodg regression this year. They lost some pieces-
It’s seems like some of the “Debby Downer SOL” fans assume the teams that were really good , will stay really good… and the teams that added talent will be really good… AND THIS DETROIT IS SCREWED VS EVERYONE!
In reality many teams windows are closing- Packers, Chiefs, Rams, and Bucs…
Others may have gone all in prematurely- Phins, Broncos, Browns, etc… these teams blew huge draft capital hoping to go from no playoffs to contenders, and paid record money to guys who have some character issues (Watson and Hill) and an aging QB who is slowing down and is about to demand a record contract in 1 year…
It is also worth noting top WRs are getting crazy stupid $ at this point and that is also likely a factor.
Cards on the table I am fine with the trade overall. I am overreacting to the Blough/Boyle shit show and yes, it would be nice to have QB stability.
Say Chark is great in 2022. We can likely afford Jameson, Chark and St. Brown for the next few years and that is great. Add in Hock and that is a quarter of weapons you can afford and you can win with.
