Questions abound?

Did we see enough with Jameis at QB to roll the dice on him for another season?
Please don't tell me Taysom is our QB1?
Do we go after Russ or Deshaun (provided his legal trouble are behind him)?
Drafting a QB is likely not in the cards this year. Certainly a down year with no QB projected in the top 10 in a long time.

WR2 and maybe WR1
MT remains an enigma. Does he come back and if so with the right attitude or do we trade him to get more draft capital?
WR1 or WR2 seems like the logical pick in round 1. We all know it take WR's generally a year or two to catch on.

Defense seems to be solid and could largely stay together but yet there are question there.
Do we make Marcus Williams a rich man or let him go?
Do we have a CB2 opposite Marshon?
Do we pay Ceedy Deuce or let him walk in free agency after this year?

I don't mention the cap because it's way over my pay grade and Loomis and team seem to be magicians.

I find it wild that people thought we should have traded a 1st round pick for Xavier Howard at the start of this season. People wanted the Saints to trade an almost assuredly top 15 pick for a cornerback.

Oof.

I’d like to see the team pick up a couple of new QBs and wait to draft one until 2023. Geno Smith, Marcus Mariota and Mitchell Trubisky are all free agents are under 30 and haven’t had the benefit of decent coaching. Leave Taysom in his joker role. Get as many WRs and tight ends into camp as humanly possible. Draft, Trade, Sign, whatever you have to do. TQS is a free agent, do we re-sign him? On defense, I think Ceedy and Williams are more important to the defenses future as any other player not named Lattimore. They are both players you want to keep, though it’ll be hard to compete if large contracts are offered for either.

Don't forget we need a solid accurate field goal kicker.

WR1 & 3....Everyone else...get healthy. This isn't a rebuild situation...this is an off-season full of healing up your guys

Sign OBJ or Allen Robinson
Extend Armstead
Sign Oj Hoard or Zach Ertz
Resign Winston for cheap
Draft Malik Willis
Draft BPA
Look for a quality interior oline. I would consider trying to trade Ruiz for someone with a higher floor.

I think you draft a wr high who can become your #1. I wouldn't head into next year counting on MT again.

The QB situation is complex. While I grew to really like Jameis Winston as a person and felt awful with the way he got hurt, his performance was just ok to me. He was at his best when he could either scramble or throw the deep ball. Everything in between was iffy, although it's obvious he was light years better than what we're seeing now and it's terribly unfortunate we didn't get a full season to see him play.

The questions with JW are 1) does the knee injury permanently remove the scrambling ability from his game, 2) can he improve his intermediate passing game and 3) could we even afford to sign him next year?

Then, what is the real deal with Taysom? Do they still believe in him as a QB or was that contract aimed at a permanent hybrid role? If we're to assume the latter, then...

What the hell does Payton really think about Book? He got very few snaps in preseason for a 4th round pick -- oddly in favor of giving Siemian a bunch of snaps instead. Made no sense since they kept both anyway and TS is what he is as a player and that's not much.

So, QB, WR, TE and even RB are the biggest question marks for me heading into next year knowing we have zero cap space to bring in any meaningful FAs at those positions.

The D in the off-season seems to be all about M. Williams and I guess Davenport. Not sure we can afford to keep Williams.

Alright you’re going to have to explain this one

Simple.. Loomis hasn’t done sheet. He had 1 elite draft class. - other than that, it has been a series of gambles with 1st round picks. Also we have simply ignored needs at QB and WR the last 3 years. We can’t seem to sign free agents at positions of need, either, . Also, we have thrown ridiculous amount of money at players who have attitude problems, are injury prone, or are named Taysom Hill.

Problem is Ruiz has no value, ask Drew's ribs.

None of that is on Loomis

Tx1 as I don’t think Armstead plays another season. His play has really dropped off this year.

So basically, a whole new offense. Probably need another pass rusher too as Turnenport is only going to combine for 5 games a season and Jordan isn’t the pass rusher he used to be.
