    You mean Cody Whitehair rated the 5th best Center in football last year? Yeah he's such an issue. They only bumped him to C because they have probowl veteran guards playing to his immediate left & right. It's not exactly unheard of for guards to play Center as well. The jump from Guard to C isn't as drastic as a LG or C trying to play LT. It's probably better that you do drop the convo.

    Their line is far from makeshift. That interior can compete with any of the league's best and the #'s show the LT is good enough to get the job done.
  3. Poll: Rooting for wins? Or Tank?

    Might as well let the cards fall where they may in terms of W-L. I don't think they'll be bad enough for Rosen. Would be nice to have Barkley here though
  4. McShay's Top 10 Prospects

    Terrible. It's like all of this is based on rankings before the season started. Rosen and Barkley have to be 1 & 2 right now.
  5. I'm not sure about Gabriel's overall track record, but he was one of the few guy's I saw standing on the table SHOUTING that there would be 3 QB's picked early in the 2017 draft and that GM's around the league felt stronger about the '17 QB class than media & fans maybe did. He was really quite sure of himself, so if he's saying this I'm definitely listening after that. I was one of the people saying that only Trubisky had a shot at going somewhere in the Top 10, and got left with egg on my face when Mahomes and Watson got traded up for in the top 10.

    He really didn't IMO. They're not asking him to be Drew Brees and throw 50 times a game. They're a run first team. Between the RBs, TE's, and Oline the Bears have good enough pieces to game manage and win some ugly games. He's just bad. Sitting and practice reps behind Jameis didn't make him any better.

    Haven't been as many mistakes as those as have been on Glennon, I live in Chicago so I got to see the train wreck every week. He's been underwhelming even when they had their number 1 & 2 receivers. Extra slow pitcher's windup, stares down guys off the snap, mind-boggling decision making, trash accuracy beyond 10 yards, terrible awareness, captain checkdown. They have good RBs, a good enough offensive line, a decent TE group. Only the WRs suck. This is more than enough to work with IMO. Thank god we didn't get him, and they're lucky they're only in it for 1 year.
  8. Thanks man, was a QB in hs about 10 years ago. Scouting has been a hobby of mines since playing was over for me at that point.
  9. That last fumble, is due to arm angle, and overall ball security. Where Darnold holds the ball to throw with his right hand is rather low. He throws underhand per-say, where the top of his hand is facing the ground, instead of the Sky. Where he holds the ball to throw with his left hand, causes strip sack turnovers. Especially, in the NFL, if he doesn't fix these technical miscues. Doesn't mean change his throwing motion whatsoever. A QB coach just needs to make sure Darnold keeps two hands on the ball, bringing that left hand with the ball just a bit longer is key, in a game of inches. Accept his (right)arm throwing motion, it's how he throws. If anything, work on the technical aspect of the arm angle motion coming around faster. Also gaining flexibility in the overall arm and shoulder.
  10. He was still churning his legs, and ref hadn't blown the whistle. He was still a runner. They teach play to the whistle, and we see guy's break out of those arm tackles for a few extra yards often enough. Bad hit yes, malicious not at all.

    Confidence issues for Darnold

    On a throw where he wsa that wide open I'd prefer the completion & him being comfortable over potentially leading the receiver too far and getting zero out of it

    Ugly pick for Darnold. Long game though
  14. Scouting the qbs for next year thread

    I agree. Maybe the hype will catch up, but so far people are talking themselves into a narrative that they want to believe, at least on Darnold. I believe in Rosen, no complaints there. Darnold I don't see as that much better (if at all) to the guys last year. There's some great things on tape, but Trubisky did a lot of the same stuff in terms of throwing on the run and improv, so did Mahomes. And it can't be about mechanics cuz Darnold looks ugly on tape plenty just like Mahomes. When people say they'd trade 2 first rounders, and the entire draft for Darnold I'm thinking like ummmm yeah. Which means people will probably be talking about the "It" factor pretty soon. Granted I'd be ecstatic to have either over the basura we have now, don't get me wrong.
  15. Where did I say I didn't like him amigo? Find one single instance lol. I was just saying... he's not 6'2. I've been up on Mayfield since last year and his height was a huge conversation point. Anyways it has a vague connection at best (If any) as to whether he'll be a successful QB. I'm a big Mayfield guy(And was last year) which is why I know a little about him.
