  1. Darnold is still a great prospect, hard to watch a USC game and not like a lot of what he does. He's impressed me with his elusiveness, prolonging plays, and throwing on the run. By no means perfect but they have to have their eyes on him. Rosen right now looks more polished and I like the fact that he's playing with less.
  2. Yeh it's way too early... we have to like what they did yesterday, good gameplan, good execution, good game from young players. Always love squishing the fish.
  3. Forget QBs not enough good coaches either

    Ah you're right... I had assumed that since he started with ATL when they drafted Matt Ryan in 2008 he was an offensive guy. Still, something to be said for a guy who went to the playoffs in 4 of his 7 years starting with a rookie QB.
  4. Who can this team even get to be HC next year?

    Mike McCoy or Mike Smith could be solid choices in developing a young QB.
  5. Forget QBs not enough good coaches either

    Yeh for that reason I like McCoy and Smith who have worked with tons of top QBs and had a decent amount of success previously.
  6. Forget QBs not enough good coaches either

    Bowles was my 1b to Dan Quinn's 1a... thought we got a real solid HC. Can't say I disagree with much here... the question here is who is out there as a replacement? Teryl Austin - Lions DC - PASS Darrell Bevell - Seahawks OC - Eh, maybe Matt Patricia/Josh McDaniels - Been there done that, Pass I'll take a page out of SAR's book and say that I'd muuuch rather have a former HC... someone like Mike McCoy, Jim Schwartz, Mike Smith or even Bill Callahan
  7. Scouting the qbs for next year thread

    Yes... my lord they both look good. Jackson looked great as well, didn't realize that he's 6'3... bulked up a little bit too. Rosen reminds me a bit of Rodgers with his release and Darnold looks like the love child of Lucas Duda and Big Ben. Right now I'd honestly take Sam.
  8. Pryor Released

    Usually I look at the draft and say "Alright, let's see what we got after the year is through." In 2014 it just seemed like such an immediate failure. The Pryor and Amaro picks were the only ones that had any level of excitement to them because we needed a Safety and a pass-catching TE so badly. They whiffed so badly it's borderline tragic. Pryor at 18? 1st safety off the board could have been Clinton-Dix or Bucannon. Or we could have taken Cooks, Kelvin Benjamin, Bridgewater, Carr... you name it... practically every player taken after Pryor has been at the least serviceable with some Pro-Bowlers sprinkled in. Amaro - Why was this guy so bad? Injuries? Bad coaching? Just too dumb for the playbook coming from Texas Tech? He was a consensus late 1-early 2 and in the convo with ASJ, Ebron, and Niklas. Could have had Davante Adams, Allen Robinson, Jarvis Landry or dare I say... Jimmy Garoppolo. 10 Picks from rounds 3-7 and they only hit on Enunwa. Personally favorite is both Jalen Saunders and Shaq Evans over Martavis Bryant. The common criticism is that we whiffed on WR, taking 3 and missing out on the top tier talent... but we also didn't pull the trigger on any of the QB's and man that has come back to bite us. We stood pat with Vick/Geno/Simms. Such a freaking failure. I know playing this game is silly but we could have drafted Derek Carr and Allen Robinson OR Cooks and Garoppolo haha
  9. Jets Waive Devin Smith

    The guy was a gamer at OSU and came up big in some of their most important games. Loved drafting a deep threat with a winning pedigree that had Desean Jackson comps. In the 2014 Big Ten Football Championship Game, he caught 4 passes for 137 yards and 3 touchdowns, helping the Buckeyes to a 59-0 victory over Wisconsin.[6][7] In the 2015 Sugar Bowl, in which Ohio State upset No. 1 Alabama 42–35, Smith had 2 receptions for 87 yards, including a 47-yard touchdown that put his team ahead for good early in the third quarter. Injuries are the culprit here, not bad drafting... this wasn't a Vlad Ducasse 2nd rounder. After that broken rib he looked like he was coming around until he tore the ACL. http://www.nfl.com/draft/2015/profiles/devin-smith?id=2552459
  10. First Round Picks

    I follow the draft very closely... I like Jackson the player (def top 5 CB available) just didn't think the value was there at pick 18. They could've taken OJ Howard and run him next to 32-year-old Delanie Walker and given Mariota a legit long-term weapon. On defense, they could have gone with Peppers, Davis, Charlton, or Foster! Conley and McKinley too, even though they had their warts. I get that they needed a CB, but that position was deeeep this year and I personally don't think Jackson will be a better pro than Howard-Foster-Davis (when you write it like that it looks like a circa-1890s justice of the Supreme Court)
  11. Marcus Maye

    Agreed... it's a fair argument to say that Marcus Williams's skill set actually complements Adams better. http://www.nfl.com/draft/2017/profiles/marcus-williams?id=2558068 BOTTOM LINE Ball-hawking free safety who has outstanding ball skills and has shown a propensity for causing turnovers. He can play from a high centerfield spot and utilizes his instincts to swoop down and challenge throws. He's able to get running backs down, but he’s not physical enough to be a combination safety. NFL teams love defensive backs with athletic traits, instincts and ball skills. If he works out well before the draft, he should move up team boards.
  12. First Round Picks

    Yeh besides the QBs (all were reaches IMO) the Titans reached on both their firsts (Davis and Jackson). Also, the Giants taking Engram was a head scratcher... esp with Ramczyck, Njoku, Foster, Dalvin Cook, and all the Guards on the board.
  13. Suck for Sam in 17

    Agreed. I honestly think next year is going to be a QB/OL/Offensive Weapon draft... or at least that's what I see when I close my eyes at night.

    Not crazy about the last pick.. would have preferred Toth there.
