All Reggie’s picks & most of his FA signings are shit.


Melinik Watson, Jihad Ward, Obi, Mario Edwards Jr... nothing but busts and question marks there in the 2nd round. Getting lucky on Carr doesn’t erase all the failures, mediocrity, or question marks. He is definitely on the bubble. On the other hand, when he took the job, there was not a long line of quality candidates wanting the opening, and he probably came in on the cheap. Failure to get a ILB for years on end is completely unacceptable, given our dire need there year after year.

DJ Hayden was a huge risk and reach that blew up on him. Jalen Richard and Deandre Washington were decent late round pick and undrafted free agent pick ups that I think Gruden will utilize more efficiently in the west coast offense. They'll platoon and serve as a Charlie Garner type backs in Gruden's west coast offense. Reggie needs to address the defense which has been subpar for a long time and he's had 6 years to no success. Reggie coming from the Packer org and philosophy it's no surprise because the Packers are an offense first franchise and have ignored their defense for years.

He’s definitely not going to last past this year if the players he drafted don’t contribute. The whole roster as it stands is on him. Condo and Jano were the last two players not drafted by him. Gruden will weed out the non performers which will only magnify his bad drafts. Perhaps the previous coaching staffs lacked the ability to develop the drafted players, but the current staff will clarify that in short order.

Lmao...we call him Pancakes at my old blog. He was a first time GM coming on board with us. He had no expectations since we were in Cap hell, and he had no first rounder until Hayden. So he basically got a built in excuse for 2 years. Then Hayden and Melinik Watson, Mario Edwards started his trend of reaches. He got a reprieve with his late round successes, and Carr/Mack and rode it to a Executive of the Year award, and extension. If you’re a casual fan, you only see the EOY and Carr/Mack. We called those dudes Reggie ball Washers. When you played LB and can’t draft an LB worth a shit, and we have ALWAYS NEEDED A LEGIT DB, you suck.

He uses the same theory in getting value for the pick with his late rounders in his picks of higher rounds. Instead of the obvious pick, which may have a lower ceiling with less risk, he goes for the high ceiling with greater risk. If you do that with a 4th rounder like McGill, no one gives a fuck. You do that in the first 2 rounds and they bust, people give a HUGE fuck. Pancakes needs Obi and Conley kicking ass and he better not fuck up rounds 1-4 this year with all our holes.
