  1. Our secondary is swiss cheese. I'd be surprised if they didn't address it with a trade or something at some point, maybe near the end of training camp.
  2. If both Zach Wilson and his mom come down with Mono!
  3. Pretty sure if money was on the line that a lot of these responses would be different. Basically I have Allen, then Cam. Then a bunch of no idea. However, I will say this: Rookies that are primarily passers (and not runners) are almost always inept for a good portion of their first year.. Even Peyton Manning (who was easily the most advanced pro ready college QB i've ever seen) didn't look that great for the first year or so.

    Cover 3 CB's

    It’s not that much different. They don’t need quite the same reaction speed, anticipation or short area quickness as pure man to man corners like eg Revis. Good skills for a cover3 involve some strong pressing skills, size and speed as well as good run support tackling.. cover3 is a pretty balanced defense. The downside is that the elite qbs tend to shred it. Like it wouldn’t be good against a typical Tom Brady led NE team with lots of underneath stuff and smart wrs to sit in seams. It takes away a lot of the deep stuff, and allows teams to be aggressive in the box. Now that Br
  5. All of these are pump and dump schemes that are quite divorced from fundamentals. It’s very 2006 like, except this time it’s in stocks and not derivatives and real estate. if you like to gamble, knock yourselves out. Just don’t bet the kids college funds.
  6. These 'hot take' draft reports are funny. If you tallied them all up vs the reality of the class five-six years later, I doubt its any better than someone throwing darts at a board. Pretty sure I recall everyone had A grades for Idzik and Mac across the board... Especially early on, when the hype train is still pumping non stop.
  7. The only established gamer we have in the entire secondary is Marcus Maye. A likely pissed off Marcus Maye after the tag business. I look at our LB core and it’s also hard to spot great cover men. With the amount of youth on this team, and a new system, expect some big time coverage busts.
  8. Of all the DTs we’ve had in the last fifteen years, he was IMO the most promising. Those first two years he was completely dominant, and the sky was the limit. When they started misusing him as a LB, his numbers started to fall off but it just showed that he was the most versatile DL we had. But since then, everything just nosedived, and while hes been ok since then, it’s not even close to what he was. What happened? Well, the usual suspects are motivation (a couple years with Mo didn’t help), injury (?) and well, PED related cycles.
  9. Welker was the greatest slot receiver in league history and yea he was better at that role. Edelman otoh has one of the best punt returner averages in league history, was not always a slot receiver (he played Y a lot) but was considerably more clutch with a greater playoff resume. So it’s a different type of career.
  10. I mean it makes sense. Hoyer provides good, affordable mentorship and is probably still capable of winning some games (not many) in the NFL. It just doesn’t really inspire confidence for the fate of the season, given that there’s a good chance we see a lot of Hoyer when whoever our rookie qb is, has growing pains (or catches mono).
  11. I’ve been wrong about a lot of qbs recently, but I look at that tape and see a late 1st pick, not the 2nd pick in the draft. it’s nothing like Burrows, and looks much more like Manziel or Baker Mayfield. I don’t like his throwing motion. There’s a flick in it that wastes time and leads to erratic accuracy.. Most of the power comes from his legs (which is ok technically) but it’s not easy arm power like Mahomes or even Darnold. A lot of what he’s doing is not going to translate into the pro game and im kinda seeing a Mayfield like NFL progression where it might take a good amou
  12. Of these, Sherman and AJ are the best fits for a zone system, and Poole is a slot/nickel cb. The others are more man cbs. It’s not ideal.
  13. They don’t make the trade unless they’re happy with the 3rd best guy on their board. There’s simply no guarantee picks 1-2 don’t remove their choices. You don’t move up if you aren’t completely assured of hitting, lest you wish to gamble with your job.
  14. This means a few things. 1) this is a qb trade. The value is roughly draft chart compensation, but no team gives up multiple first rounders like that. 2) SF is happy with any of the top three qbs in the draft. We don’t know if that’s Fields or Wilson, but merely their top three and that they expect their choice to not be there at 12.. 3)Garrop will be a cut. 4) We can’t be sure they offered this to the Jets, but my guess is they tried and Douglas said no, strongly implying we take a qb, or expect an even better deal in the future.
  15. Wait till you see what they can do with Jets OL!
