    Exactly. We're not talking about a member being inducted after passing away. There is no obligation to show a montage for a player actively deciding not to attend. It's not petty, it's appropriate. If He wanted recognition, he should of attended. Instead he's getting exactly what he wanted all along. The Conversation all about "Him" and not the actual "Class of 18". Which is unfortunate for the rest.

    The second best running back in Eagles history behind Frank Gore. He was an absolute monster during his time in Philly and certainly earned every cent of that paycheck.

    I wanted to take a closer look at what the pass rush looked like last year and I thought the analysis would be interesting to everyone here. Be warned, it's not encouraging. The Packers recorded 37 sacks last year. The first thing I wanted to look at was how our sacks looked when comparing our usage of the dime package vs standard downs. I started by comparing our sacks and sorting them by down. 1st down: 14 2nd down: 4 3rd down: 19 4th down: 0 We really struggled on 2nd down, and part of tht is caused by teams running more on second down, and teams throwing on favorble down and distances on second down to our defense being very bad on first down, but looking at those numbers was really discourging. We basically needed a team to have it's back against the wall to be able to get consistent pressure. Of the four sacks that we had on second down, they came from distances of 5 yards, 6 yards, 10 yards, and 17 yards. Half of our second down sacks came on dime downs. Ugly. +++ Next I wanted to look at the sacks by personnel groupings. I counted Morgan Burnett as a defensive back. I know some will argue that's not a proper way of evaluating it, but I'm not going to change a man's position distinction after forever with the team. Regardless it paints a rough picture. Base: 8 Nickel: 8 Dime: 21 This defense could not finish without six defensive backs on the field, almost exclusively in coverage. They could not win without being able to pin their ears back and go. Somebody on this team needs to be able to play the run while getting to the QB. In fairness, the defense did average 5.21 DBs per play, so they played a lot of dime defense, but nowhere near enough to make the lack of pressure and sacks on standard downs acceptable. +++ When you break down the sacks by player you get: Clay: 8 Perry: 7 Daniels: 5 Clark: 4 Fackrell: 3 Lowry: 2 Jones: 2 Brooks: 2 Ryan: 2 House: 1 Burnett: 1 Martinez: 1 Thomas: 1 Gilbert: 1 Biegel: 1 24 sacks out of the starting front four isn't bad, but it isn't great. We need Clay and Perry to step it up next year. The biggest issue we have with the sacks is the lack of production from Fackrell and Lowry. You can't have yoru 3rd OLB and 3rd DL combining for 5 sacks. That's just unacceptable, you need more out of those two spots. Both guys had most of their production out of free runs anyway. Tht can't be how it works. They need to be able to win. +++ Most of these probably didn't upload to imgur, but I captioned the ones I had. +++ The Bears come out in a 12 Personnel here, and the Packers respond with their base 30 front. Because the Bears are a bad football team, they decide that rather than block Kenny Clark with just their Center, they’re going to bring a double team down, leaving Clay Matthews isolated against the Tight End. This has predictable results as Clay eats the Tight End for lunch causing the sack fumble. Jake Ryan is reading the Tight End waiting for him to go out and run a route. When he sees that the Tight End is actually going to stay in and block he shoots the gap and scoops up the loose fumble. Play +++ The Bears come out in their 21 personel here. The Packers respond with their base 40 front. The Bears are trying to sell a play action power lead play here and they do a great job of it. The receiver playing the wingback role shoots across the formation at the snap and Perry comes off his line to pressure Trubisky. If Trubisky isn’t one of the worst QBs in the NFL, he dumps it down to his primary option and gets the first down here. Lucky for the Packers, Trubisky wastes precious half-seconds spying the rush and instead chooses to eat the sack. Again, because the Bears are terrible. Play +++ The Bears come out in the 10 personnel, and the Packers come with their coverage dime look. rookie Running Backs make mistakes blocking and rookie QBs make mistakes in reading blitzes. The Packer brought an overload blitz from the right side of the offense. Either the Tackle or the Running Back need to come off of the first man through in Josh Jones and pickup Davon House. Neither do, Trubisky doesn’t release the ball to the side where 2 DBs evacuated and the result is a sack. Play +++ The Bears come out in their 11 personnel look and the Packers come out in their dime coverage look again. Nick Perry and Mike Daniels are well blocked here, but the Bears do a poor job of working the stunt pulled off by Clay Matthews and Ahmad Brooks. Trubisky checks the one read that he’s capable of checking per play, sees the rush and scoots forward to try and get some more yards. Perry cleans it up and earns himself a hustle sack. Play +++ If the first half of the season had any kind of pattern to it pass rushing wise, it was that the Packers were basically incapable of getting any kind of pressure out of their standard looks without multiple screw ups by the opponent. The pressure/coverage packages however were productive. Josh Jones has his best play of the year here and shows some good rush skills. The way he subtly sells up field and then comes back in to beat Tyler Kroft is encouraging, even if Tyler Kroft is terrible. Play +++ Ahmad Brooks does a nice job of selling this. He looks like he’s going to blow into the Bengals Right Tackle (Jake Fihser) before cutting it and giving Josh Jones space to run by. Jones comes in completely untouched as does Burnett from the other side. Somehow neither of the Bengals Tackles blocked a man despite two exterior blitzers meeting at the QB. Dreadful offensive line communication by the Bengals. Play +++ Ahmad Brooks has his best play of the season here. Jake Fisher is entirely overmanned at Tackle and it shows with some really terrible pass pro technique here. Brooks just loops right around him and gets the sack on Dalton. This is the sort of dreadful technique coaches should be getting on Varsity high school tackles about, yuck. Play +++ Kyler Fackrell gets a clean up sack here blitzing from the Inside Linebacker role in the dime group. The coverage was outstanding on the Browns intramural quality wide receiving group and Josh Gordon here. Clay manages to flush Deshon Kizer from the pocket. Mike Daniels keeps him contained and Kyler Fackrell manages to fall on him. Play +++ Kenny Clark starts this play double teamed by the Center and the Right Guard. The Right Guard sees Dean Lowry angling into the B gap and leaves Clark thinking that the Center has him controlled. The Center sees Ryan blitzing and comes off Clark to block Ryan. Clark takes advantage of being blocked by nobody and gets after Jameis Winston who (in typical Jameis Winston fashion) threw the ball backwards into the hands of a defender leading to a score. https://i.imgur.com/kM80MxG.gif +++ Caleb Benenoch is a mediocre Guard and an absolutely terrible Tackle who was asked to play Right Tackle against the Packers because of injury. Clay Matthews ate his lunch. https://i.imgur.com/LqohCKM.gif +++ Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark simply moved three offensive linemen into the backfield forcing Jameis Winston to tuck the ball and start looking for an escape plan. Clay slid off of Benenoch before he found it and cleaned up for the sack. It’s nice seeing a defensive line with some serious juice even if it is against the dreadful Bucs offensive line. Daniels especially here made a play. https://i.imgur.com/hsr0vKh.gif +++ Tyron Smith was a wreck with injuries in 2017 but Nick Perry made him look dumb here scoring the strip sack. When Perry uses his hands to rip through, his speed rush counter can be effective. It’s just not a primary move. https://i.imgur.com/pUWaYyg.gif +++ Devonta Freeman completely missed the call here letting Blake Martinez blitz completely untouched. https://i.imgur.com/ABtic38.gif +++ In what was probably the only instance of good coverage the Packers had all night, Matt Ryan couldn’t find a target and the Falcons handled the Packers stunt along the right side very poorly. Clay gets essentially a free lane to the QB here. https://i.imgur.com/SmvaZxc.gif +++ Nick Perry and Dean Lowry team up on a sack on a busted flea-flicker. https://i.imgur.com/1Nv5sPD.gif +++ Vince Biegel and Mike Daniels show some very poor timing on this stunt look here, but Mike Daniels is able to beat his man even without the element of surprise. Good coverage on the back end kept this play in the pocket, a braver QB may have cut this loose. https://i.imgur.com/EdvdySo.gif +++ Kenny Clark gets the sack here, but Vince Biegel deserves some credit here. The way he sets the outside spin move up with the inside jab step is good stuff. That’s a veteran move. He flushes Cam up, and Clay is working inside leaving Cam with only one space to go and Clark stays active. Clark’s most underrated skillset is his awareness of the pocket. He is really really good at knowing where the QB is while he’s fighting with guys. https://i.imgur.com/tyxtEIK.gif +++ Vince Biegel gets a free rush to the pocket here and sends Alex Collins flying when the back tries to stop him. Dean Lowry has a nice rush here. He gets the Austin Howard (Right Tackle) on skates and drives him backwards. The Right Tackles feet get tangled up with the Right Guard and both guts meet at the QB. This was Lowry’s best play of the season. https://i.imgur.com/zrFavKj.gif +++ Austin Howard is a terrible Tackle, but Kyler Fackrell does an actual NFL pass rusher thing. Maybe, just maybe? https://i.imgur.com/6tVwmzm.gif +++ It’s never good when a bad guard is forced into playing Left Tackle and that’s what happens here. Clay whips James Hurst for the sack and Ahmad Brooks isn’t far behind on beating Austin Howard. This Ravens offensive line was beat to hell with injuries. https://i.imgur.com/6hSCHFo.gif +++ The “Nick Perry bulrushes his man into the feet of the man blocking Mike Daniels” pass rush strategy is one of my favorite things the Packers did this year. It lead to three sacks on the year, though one was not counted due to a holding call. It’s good to see a Packer hit a QB hard. https://i.imgur.com/RWLf48v.gif +++ Mike Daniels is a bad man and he shows it here. He didn’t need Nick Perry to clean it up, but he got it anyway. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a Packer defender dominate a game as thoroughly as Daniels did against the Seahawks, https://i.imgur.com/AOX53jl.gif +++ Here we see another example of Nick Perry bullrushing his man into the feet of the man blocking Mike Daniels. There’s something to be said for having your two best rushers on the same side of the line so they can play off of each other. https://i.imgur.com/AnCBp4U.gif +++ Mike Daniels https://i.imgur.com/5VDROeh.gif +++ Straight coverage sack here. Well blocked by the Steelers, Daniels eventually tracks it down and gets the hustle sack. https://i.imgur.com/UoFbo9c.gif +++ I love Kenny Clark’s awareness. He deserves the stat on this one. He sniffs out the screen, keeps it contained and then breaks off to keep Keenum inbounds. Great heads up play by Clark. He is everything you could ask for in a young Big. https://i.imgur.com/UUFwc7s.gif +++ Case Keenum turned the wrong way on playaction, (and still half our team fell for it, jesus) Fackrell read it right and contained the outside on the bootleg. Blake Martinez got through on his middle blitz and the two managed to bring Keenum down. https://i.imgur.com/5sJfPVS.gif +++ Really good coverage here. Reggie Gilbert and Kyler Fackrell collapse the pocket and Kenny Clark gets the hustle sack as he ran all the way around the pocket. Fackrell and Gilbert playing the same snap on a regular down is nauseating even while tanking. https://i.imgur.com/6xhkyvY.gif

    I'm going with the Bills. They'll most likely have the worst QB play with a horrid offensive line. They also had a number of things swing their way to make the playoffs last year so they're due for some kind of regression/unlucky streak. With the Jets & Cards, Darnold/Rosen are a lot more polished than a guy like Allen where there's a small window of opportunity of either of these teams making some sort of run to a playoff spot. Another team that could be in this spot is Seattle. They just lost a ton of key veterans and important talent at some positions. They made some effort in the offensive line but god forbid a miss block happens and Russell Wilson misses some time, this could be a disaster of epic proportions. Tampa is also a strong candidate here. Just like Seattle, they could easily surprise and make a run but with the Jameis , Tampa's got to question their future state at QB. It's a volatile situation and the coaching is on the hot seat here. Someone mentioned Miami here. A few months ago when I started looking at football, I thought they'd be a good candidate but looking at them more, I just don't see it and think they could actually surprise. They won six games last year under some of the most brutal and unlucky circumstances coupled with distractions. Like most disaster seasons, they lose their starting QB before the season starts. They trade their top starting RB because he's a malcontent. They had one of their players quit and leave the team on them in Week 2 including a coach who got canned for doing drugs, corpses that they trot out for their TE and lastly not playing their first home game until Week 5 due to an unpredicted hurricane which had them flying across the country to LA in Week 2, to NY in Week 3 and off to London in Week 4. I'm not going to mention some of the other bad locker room influences that might've helped on the field but clearly disrupted team chemistry. And after all that turmoil, they ended up winning six games. As for 2018, Miami only travels as far as Minneapolis, brings in an interesting group of veterans and some key pieces from the draft.

    Situational awareness. I dont really have a horse in this race but there's a pretty big difference between those situations and when he got hurt extending plays. A 4th down with the playoffs on the line and 10 seconds left in a tied playoff game are times you extend the play at any risk. No one is going to argue that. A random second down play and a third down play in field goal range in September not so much. There's 1000+ snaps in a year. You don't have to put yourself at risk to win every one. That seems to be a reasonable stance to me.

    Almost everyone gets better on paper but that doesnt immediately translate into results. Yay you got Brandin Cooks but he has been traded twice now in like 2-3 years. We've all seen Suh/Talib has positive and negative locker room contributions. Some things have to take time to mesh and thats if they do at all. As bad as Seattle was last year they were still 2 game back from you and SF be a helluva lot better with at the very least, an above average starting QB. I dont think the Rams are this big slam dunk for greatness the way we see New England. I'd also say the Eagles have the easiest path. At least the NFC West has some QBs to compete with. Just sounds way too confident to say the worst case scenario is just injuries...and oh yea when we get hurt, we'll still win the division. So worst case scenario is still being better than like 25 other teams in the NFL

    Ehh...the Sixers have a ton of talent, but they’ve basically had about a 30-game hot streak where they played some amazing ball (26-5 close to the regular season). Aside from that, they were a .500 team through 50 games last season, struggled to some degree with a pretty weak Miami team, and then got handled by a limited Boston team that needed 7 games to beat Milwaukee. If Simmons and Embiid stay healthy (no great bet) and they can bottle whatever mojo they were working with at the end of the season, then they might well be the better team. But I think it’s closer than “a good distance worse.” And the Raptors...well, they’ll probably win 50 games or whatever because of their depth, but they had their hands full with the Wizards despite Wall being 5 games back from major surgery and Porter’s injury. The Wiz have upgraded their talent level overall this offseason while the Raptors have (at best) stayed the same and Lowry will be another year older. I know the consensus is that the Wizards (and Bucks and Pacers) are clearly behind the “top three” in the East, but personally I think that’s putting a little too much emphasis on last season — when things went great for Philly and Toronto (and Indiana, for that matter) and terribly for Washington. I think all those teams will drift closer to each other next season, even just via some good old fashioned “regression to the mean” action.

    Donald ran a 4.6, too. I get that everyone likes Oliver, and I fully expect him to be a top 3 pick (deservedly so). I'm pretty sure he will be a very good and possibly exceptional player. But to say say that his explosion has never been seen in the NFL just strikes me as hyperbole. Anyway, back on topic of the thread, Bosa has much more refined technique and plays against a higher level of competition. I think he's more scheme-proof. Oliver has a higher ceiling, but I'd take Bosa if I were a GM in the top 5. I don't care if it's an unpopular opinion. Oliver has a longer learning curve. Right now he wins with his quickness and agility -- and I agree it's extremely good, although not unprecedented -- but he needs to learn a lot about hand positioning, leverage, and gap integrity. If it all comes together, then sure, he could be a HoF type player, but I have some minor concerns.
