I would say that the vast majority in this forum feel really good about Holmes. I’d say that a lesser, but still solid majority love DC, and I haven’t read too many posters questioning Glenn nor Lynn…
So get solid discretion and vision at GM, leadership at HC, and XOs in the coordinators… check?
When we unloaded Stafford for a haul of picks, let KG and Jones walk, and avoided any big multi year FA deals, I’d say we showed our hand that a rebuild or retool was in process.
We fortified the lines with elite trench talent in the draft. We brought in a top tier veteran DT. We moved to a base 3-4 to maximize when Romeo, Julian, Bryant, Harris etc were best suited for.
At some point we all agreed seeing progress and 6-11 or 7-10 would be okay.
We all seemed to accept 2 years of Goff as a 25 TD and 12 INT level QB could work if we maxed out our D talent and established ourselves as a top running team.
Nothing… I mean nothing… NOTHING has happened to the contrary, yet we’ve questioned Goff, wondered about Fields, and now having a shitty D or awful WRs seems like it will be unacceptable?
18- 30 for 255 yards with 1.6 tds and .75 ints per week is what we are hoping for.
If the D is top 20, we have a 1,000 yard rusher and Goff has 25 plus tds and 12 ints, and we win 6 games, then I would think we all be optimistic about 22’ with money, picks etc
