I’ve seen all this talk on here about how we’re at square one and are an expansion team, which I don’t completely agree with. We have some pieces, just not a lot, and not any great ones yet.
But who are those pieces? What can we build around?
Here’s my opinion by position…
QB - None
RB - Swift
WR - St. Brown
TE - Hockenson
RT - Sewell/Decker
RG - None
C - Ragnow
LG - Jackson
LT - Decker/Sewell
NT - McNeil
DT- None (This is sad, but Onwuzurike will probably be on the roster.)
OLB - None
MLB - Barnes, Anzalone
CB - Melifonwu
S - None
I’m not saying all of these guys are these great NFL players, but this is a realistic skeleton of where we are now.
IMO you can build around goff, you just need to go back to when we had the run & shoot. Get us the ‘silver smurfs’ at wr again. really fast little guys that get separation and open frequently and run a hybrid west coast. have one tall guy for some jump balls (hockenson fits here) and we have the RBs to be successful, we have a thunder and lightning right now and they’re perfect.
we just need speed at the wr position.
I would add Parker and I believe Cephus can continue to grow and be a low level 2 but more likely a 4. I do think Levi O will be better next year than we see now don’t forget both he and sewell say out last year.
To start off I am NOT a Goff hater, but after yesterday I think we solidified he is not our future. He can be our QB for the present, but he isn’t going to win us an NFC championship. He doesn’t have Aaron Donald and company to bail him out on defense anymore.
yep - forgot about Fox.
good point on Swift, i thought twice about putting him there, but he is not very heavily used so he may have staying power. I think the jury is still out on Jackson. Unfortunately, Decker’s window is now; our window is … not now.
