Brown is a FA and who knows how much he's going to want, and he's not that great.
|And an OK QB, which is all Eli has ever been, along with a top tier defense, will be enough.|
| and use the reasoning as to why/where we lost games this year (or even last year) and say that is the biggest area of need. Linebacker, edge rusher, O-line, Free Safety....agree we need improvement in players/play at all these spots.
Its all about the QB.
We have to replace an aging QB that without question has his best days behind him and is not getting any better nor is "aging gracefully" to be kind. And until we do change the guy under center, we are not likely going to be competing for playoffs on any consistent basis. The improvements at other positions will help but they won't make the difference. Change at QB will or at least will have the MOST impact.
While nobody has the secret sauce who is the right guy to replace, draft, "hitch your wagon to going forward" at QB, punting the decision down the road until the moon,sun and stars are aligned is a pipe-dream. That is like playing the lottery.
Need to restructure the QB position and need to start addressing it now...get KL in there to see what he brings. Put clear focus on scouting college QBs coming out over the next 2 years and start making your wish-list, or at least do not want list, so that we can allocate resources to QBs in the NFL right now that we can "live with" in the near term until the scouting has more focus.
And i find it hard to believe that Eli is on the list to "live with" in 2019 based on his play, age and $.
