If the Bears passed on an additional 1st round pick, why wouldn't you expect top ten numbers from DJ Moore?What kind of numbers would you like to see from DJ Moore this next season?
1,000 and 9TDs would be a good season. I'd be happier with 1100-1200 yards and think he could end up with less TDs though depending on how they use him in the RZ. You would think that Claypool and Kmet are going to get alot of RZ looks with them being bigger targets.If the Bears passed on an additional 1st round pick, why wouldn't you expect top ten numbers from DJ Moore?
Why make that trade for a middling wr?
1,000 yards & 9 TDs. (Btw the top 22 wrs had 1k yards. I'm kinda low balling here.)
Poles is betting Fields (or the 24’ QB) won't be as bad as busts Baker and Darnold. Could have better numbers if the o line gets fixed.1,000 and 9TDs would be a good season.

I was mainly curious what kind of season would appease @Montucky since he seems to take issue with the trade.
Right?Issue is, would he have been able to move down again?
100% agree with this.Would have Carolina been willing to move up from #9 to #2, while giving up a lot of capital, with the possibility of not drafting the QB they wanted?!? I doubt it. And if so, they weren’t adding DJ Moore.
On a side note, I hope he called Houston while the deal was on the table with Carolina to see if they would add some juice. Or maybe Houston balked.
The only grip I have with the Carolina trade is grabbing SF’s traded second rd pick and not Carolina’s.
I was thinking about this a while back and would only trade with Houston if they agreed to declared their pick right after the trade. Getting Moore tipped these scales before FA. So much easier to game plan now and may have benefits beyond the actual current trade values."I thought there was an opportunity to do something historically pretty cool with a trade from one to two and two to nine. That had potential to add more draft capital this year, and then the possibility that you’re sitting on three ones in the following year. That had my attention. But my gut told me to trigger on it now. At the combine, I thought those quarterbacks did an outstanding job in their interview process. A lot of teams felt really good about some of those guys, but as you get further away from the combine, maybe there’s a bad pro day or something that turns teams off.”
Don't think this is complicated. He is saying he had prelim discussions with Houston but nothing concrete. So it would have taken more time with no guarantee Houston meets his demands so he opted to pull the trigger now. So more than likely he wanted a 2024 first from Houston and Houston was still debating whether they wished to give in. Given they were only moving up one spot, they likely would have wanted to fully finish their evaluation process before making a deal as you only trade to 1 from 2 if you rank one prospect significantly above all others.
Further, if they trade 1 to Houston they are unlikely to move 2 until closer to the draft or draft night because teams moving to 2 likely would want to have a sense for who Houston is taking particularly if they have one clear cut preference at QB. So you run the risk of Carolina not wanting to trade for 2 or not wanting to include DJ Moore when it is clear Poles wanted help for Fields right now this season.
Poles traded a 2nd round pick for Claypool (I think this move was baffling)This is the problem with monumentally fucking up the WR position last year by not drafting Pickens, draft VJJ, then drafting for Claypool. 3 F grade moves.
CCS in general is terrible when there are no NFL games. watching people lose their shit for a variety of reasons is great though.It's threads like this that remind me now is a good time to stay away from CCS until draft day.
