Memo to Kwesi Adofo-Mensah:
Understand that if you ever trade back for 5th, 6th and 7th round picks, I will be calling for your termination as GM. Understand that if you ever opt to pay a guy $45-million for being mediocre at his job, I will be calling for your termination as GM. Understand that if I ever hear you utter the phrase "best player available" I will be calling for your termination as GM.
In the Bills/Chiefs game last Sunday, Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes led their respective teams to a combined 39 points in the final two minutes of the two halves of the game. In the entire 2021 season, Kirk Cousins barely scored more than that in 17 games (or 34 halves). Please address that, so that our squad looks as if it is playing the same game as the rest of the league.
Outside of that, go get em. I'll give you three years to produce some results, but I'd really like to see some within two.
Spielman did that often, either as a result of advertising his willingness to trade back or even initiating calls to do so, and the team may have not gotten fair value at times. However, if it's in the middle or later rounds, the team is about to pick and they have a few equally weighted candidates on their board, and then some team calls and offers an extra pick to move down a couple picks (e.g. drop from pick #101 to #103 in return for a 6th round pick), I don't see a problem with doing that, provided that the extra picks are evaluated as more than fair value for the move back.
Heimdall kept the “ringing” horn, Gjallarhorn, which could be heard throughout heaven, earth, and the lower world; he would sound the horn to summon the gods when their enemies drew near.
