    Sign receivers and cbs in the FA. No superstars, just solid #2 guys.

    Every single draft pick take OL. Have a good ole QB competition but for every single spot on the OL.

    Great call four months ago, Cat but "the best laid plans..." Wonder what derailed the program?

    Appreciate Dark Knights effort to lift our spirits in this time of woe.

    My only hope is that Douglas and Gates can right the wrongs made by past coaches and GMs and build us a team that can at least compete credibly in this sport.

    For as much as I hate the Pats why can't we at least model our recruitment and operation to emulate that successful (vomit, vomit) organization?

    The clueless Free Agent Band Aids won't cure a team with a bullet head wound.

    Just stop the madness...

    You won't get that unless you have a clear, overriding vision from the top and the management structure to suit. That's the first thing I would do.

    This isn't much but its something to keep in mind.

    In the SB era we have made the playoffs 14 times out of 53 seasons. This isn't great, but compared to many other 'hard luck' teams its pretty good.

    Whats better, when we make the playoffs we are rarely one and done. 8 out of 14 appearances we advanced the the next round. More than half the time we make the playoffs we win a game. In 25 playoff games we are 12-13. Nearly .500 which is better than many teams.

    This is also a good stat compared to most teams playoff percentage. Heck we have won 6 more playoff games than the Cowboys since their last SB in 95. Its been a long time since some teams have won a playoff game.

    Last playoff win:
    Bengals -1990
    Lions - 1991
    Browns - 1994
    Bills - 1995
    Cowboys - 1995
    Dolphins - 2000
    Raiders - 2002
    Buccaneers - 2002
    Redskins - 2005

    We have been to the conference championship 5 times - and 3 times in the last 20 years. Some teams have gone far longer.

    Last Conference Championship appearance:
    Bengals -1988
    Browns - 1989
    Redskins - 1991
    Lions - 1991
    Dolphins - 1992
    Bills - 1993
    Cowboys - 1995
    Raiders - 2002
    Buccaneers - 2002
    Chargers - 2007

    We are undefeated in SB's at 1-0.

    Yes it has been a long time but there are still 12 teams (more than 1/3 of the league) who have never won a SB.

    It ain't much but its something.

    Mac blindly traded up not knowing who he’d get at QB, and in doing so missed on Lamar Jackson who he could have traded back for. There was nothing positive about this move to date.

    This thread is about being positive...and the only thing we have to be even a little positive about was in the past.
    We are suffering now. But other teams have suffered also - and for far longer. This includes the Bills and the Dolphins - which is also a positive thing. They haven't won a playoff game since the the Kelly/Marino days. ;)

    Situation plays a huge factor. If Darnold was on the Ravens, who knows how great they would be? If Jackson was a Jet, he would likely be a mess right now. Probably injured and maybe already converted to a WR. Lamar fell into the perfect situation. Allen did too as the Bills D is great. Baker, Sam, and Rosen? Not so much...........

    No doubt. My point was more towards Mac trading blindly which exemplifies how bad he was; he simply got lucky Darnold was there. Jackson getting passed on, and his success, only exacerbates that.

    The positive is that Lamar Jackson went to a winning organization that can challenge New England rather than rotting into football hell and becoming RG3 with us or a team like the Redskins.
