  1. His separation the other night was really impressive. That's what I noticed.
  2. I saw some posts yesterday on QBs we've lost in preseason to injury like Chad and Sanchez... But then I started thinking about how we've lost QBs to totally random stuff to start campaigns where they were about to have their second season as a starter and were expected to turn it on more ...and I remembered Geno's jaw and Sam's mono. We are really snake bit at this position.
  3. The only positive tonight is encountering the name WILDGOOSE.
  4. Tangential to the OP, but watching the documentary series, makes me realize how big Tomlinson has the potential to be for this team. He comes off as a real leader and mentor. Someone that can elevate their own position and also help AVT meet his potential. Even Quinnen as featured in the first episode.
  5. it's getting worse by the minute
  6. Duke had responded saying on Twitter that it was a precautionary measure that Mehki would wear moving forward. Connor said Becton appeared to get his toe caught and then took the push in the chest (which on the video looks awful, but I couldn't tell about the toe from it). Seems like confluence of bad luck with toe getting caught, huge weight he carries and his knee that probably carries a higher risk of injury given surgery (as manifested by the precautionary brace)... But if that's the case, the guy is an injury time bomb?
  7. It does? This seems like an outcome of him being enormous but does it matter if he's at 360 instead of 390lbs? - it'd be an enormous amount of weight and force on it no matter what as he's just a huge dude. I am now worried for him that the knee might just be done. He had so long for it to heal and strengthen... So lame!
  8. I can't wait till peak pre-season!
  9. Sorry, lots of auto correct. Point I was trying to make is that when we drafted him a lot of people (or atleast a loud minority here) were worried he was a spoiled rich kid who wouldn't care about football. I don't know if he will be great but he is certainly putting in effort.
  10. I really do appreciate the initiative from Zach. It's one thing to host Jets West equivs during off-season, but he seems to have spent most of his break traveling the country to be with his receivers and put in work with them. I can only hope that it leads to something good but I think he's put to bed worries on whether he would put in the time because of his uncle's wealth between the time put into gaining weight and training with his teammates.
  11. No one knows. We are a 'bright future' team right now on both sides of the ball, a lot of promise and very light on experience. I think JD has approached the two sides of ball with pretty decent balance this past off season but I dont think we'll know until Oct. In reality, Zach looked brilliant last pre-season. Was only once full speed and gameplanning hit last season that we saw him short circuit at times, ultimately thats gonna be the deciding factor though with the improvements to the players around him he will be under less pressure to short circuit...
  12. The footage of him working the phones for an hour to trade up for JJ is amazing. Real effort and aggression to get what he wants - great balance when you consider how disciplined he has been in free agency.
  13. I can't speak to his mental prep but you cannot fault his work ethic or focus on football. He looks like a totally different person physically in this years docuseries. I don't remember ever seeing a transformation in building out a frame like that in one off season.
  14. Adding a probowler to the line IS a substantial upgrade, no? Just watching our bts series, it occurred to me that Tomlinson's impact will be just as important off as on the field. The guy seems like an absolute pro and super serious. Seems like exactly the kind of fellow you'd want to bring in to elevate Mehki and AVT - like Faneca vibes (only Laken had more left in tank himself at his stage).
  15. That's what it felt like watching. He also probably led league in unforced errors first three quarters of season, but if you were to add half of those errors back he'd of been over the 60% bar that seems to always come up with rookie QBs.
  16. He's always a good interview. Seems like a fantastic guy to have in locker room.
  17. This is even worse than the "Pig is ripe" threads that always backfire...
  18. I think the late Joe McKnight had a similar thing as a rookie in the heat.
  19. Didn't realize Roger Craig was his cousin. And forgot he was coached by Matt Campbell, who we get linked to every time we switch coaches...
  20. Pretty sure Cam Clark retired officially.
