AB probably gets a 1 and 3. Maybe more.
Id also get rid of DD. Hes probably worth a 2.

And get some big bodies who can make a difference in the redzone


Added bonus for AB if he goes to a team with competent coaches and talent. Probably actually win a ring before he retires. Not looking good if he stays, right now. So your suggestion could be a win-win.
Are you sure he wouldn't mind less than 10-15 targets and the required 100 yards every game? Would he be willing to rim his new QB before being taken out to dinner a few times first?

I had forgotten about Bryant being called out by Ben at the end of 2015.

Hate to agree [more accurately, hope I'm wrong] that Bryant may not respond positively to being benched. But I'm not sure what other option you have at this point. It would be great to see Haley get him more involved and call some better plays, but we all know that's not going to happen.

Over time ive become less than thrilled with AB

- He appears to be a selfish me first player at times
- He comes up small in big games
- He isnt the smartest or most aware player
- He isnt a great TD player in the redzone particularly

I could list more. I also realize there are some good arguements the other way too.

I got a feeling Bryant is gonna be great. I think JuJu might be able to become great at contested catches.

This teams biggest problem by far is the redzone. DD and AB are upgradeable imo.

The thing is AB garners attention...double coverage. Whether he comes up big or small, he loosens the defense for everyone else.

Bell does the same.

That's what I can't understand. Players around the league are afraid of AB and Bell...and yet somehow...by some ridiculous fuck up....Haley and Ben can't take advantage of this.

Think about how Bell and AB would slash our defense. Burns is AB's bitch in preseason practice. At this point, our defense couldn't stop Najeh Davenport, let alone Bell (although Deebo being cleared to play provides hope).

How can all this talent not gel?

He has, for years. He's not beating it like he used to.

But he's not the problem.

Oh please, if we don't block for Bell he's not going to garner attention like he has in the past.

He's also lost a step because of injury
