Just realized that every one of Rich Cho's draft picks here from 2011 to 2017, except Kemba Walker, is currently on a minimum contract or out of the league.

And not because we traded all our picks somewhere else. That is a crazy stat.

What's worse, the Hornets defense or the Panthers offense?

We also didn't hire an coach that was supposed to be god's gift to defense. Brady has been a pretty abysmal failure, notwithstanding his personnel limitations.

I argue this on the huddle, the team is a franchise QB away from being a contender...overall the GM and staff put a very good team around one of the worst starting QB's ever

Seriously its a miracle we are 4-5 with Darnold, he is that bad. He can't time throws at all, he holds on to the ball and throws way too late when he does throw, as a result he is throwing balls where t he defense already knows where the ball is going to go a few seconds a head of time and he is getting our WR's murdered

I don't even blame Robbie for the drops, Sam is always throwing behind him with the safety already converging for a big hit, no WR wants to catch that ****

TL;DR the team gambled on Darnold and lost, big time. I think the staff is otherwise pretty good. Rhule took a team with the league's worst, most hopeless defense and made then top 10 and playoff caliber in a season and a half. If Stafford accepts the trade to come here, we are 7-3 or better. If Watson keeps it in his pants, we are 7-3 or better. The team tried to get a franchise QB, just couldn't follow through. Thank god we didn't draft Fields (he blows) or Jones (his best case scenario is Andy Dalton, but he is better than Darnold)

Would you rather Darnold or Bridgewater as your starting QB?

Teddy is probably a slightly below average QB.

Darnold is almost worse than Jimmy Clausen. We traded 3 picks for a total bum. Why they thought he was worth trading for I'll never know. Bad QB's very rarely become good when they move teams.

I'm praying for 5-12 and a chance at a high draft pick QB. Keep throwing those picks Darnold

It's a weak QB draft class though.

Darnold or no Darnold, we still need an offensive line

We cut Cam
We traded for Teddy and gave him a contract
We cut Teddy
We traded for Darnold and exercised his option
He sucks terribly
We sign Cam out of desperation

Incompetence doesn't begin to describe this mess. We've spent millions and traded several draft picks for literally nothing.

I immediately scooped up tickets for the skins game. Place will be rocking.
