  1. Top 5 Packers Age 25 or Younger?

    For what it's worth, he's been taking a lot of snaps at the 0/1 during OTA's/minicamp.
  2. Who's your 2019 Breakout Player

    I understand that, but if the best coach in the game - who's a bit more than just a defensive coach - is complimenting you then you're doing something right.

  4. Who's your 2019 Breakout Player

    There's a lot more to a car than moving. Not sure what you mean there? Speaking of Belichik this is what he said about Moss: But, I learned a lot from Randy. Randy had a big impact on me as a coach. He taught me the game from a perspective that I had never really seen before or understood before. I’ll always be grateful to him for that, for doing that. But, he was a great person to have on the team. Sounds like a cancer to me. Doesn't get brought up much but Rodgers didn't practice on Wednesdays last year for half the season. Wednesdays were our 'move the ball' practice. So his only chance to get on the same page as the young receivers, when defenses were playing, was during games.

    1 ILB, and it may not be Martinez.

    You know I really don’t understand where you’re coming from with your Gary critiques. I’d like to because if I’m missing something I’d love to learn what it is I don’t see. I understand not wanting to get caught up in the narrative that he’s going to be an all pro. Hell I think he starts the year as a sub package player. But I just don’t get this idea that he showed nothing on tape in 2018.

    2. According to what metric does he not have elite burst and speed for the position?

    Our edge is going to look a lot different next year, for better or worse.

    Body positioning compared to the opponent, establishing a strong base from toes to your knees to your hips to your hands and to your head.

    Seems to me hands and leverage are the best skills to have; it can make a bad athlete like Za'Darius Smith a lot of money.

    Maybe I'm seeing a different game. I see a lot of instances of ND trying to run at Gary and getting blown up. I also see him turning the corner at 5:30 and forcing an incompletion. So I literally see speed and power on the edge demonstrated in this game.

    On every snap of his 2018 season you believe he played weak and slow?

    What games did you watch that made you believe this?
  14. 1[12]: Rashan Gary [EDGE; Michigan]

    Ok, so we see how the best edge rusher in the game utilizes it. It’s a great platonic ideal of “bending the corner”. Now I’m curious: how does a player’s ability to do this actually impact how successful he is over the course of a season/career? Before you, or anyone answers, I agree: hypothetically it does nothing but help. But what I’m curious about are actual numbers: who does this well, how often did they do that, and how did it affect their/the team’s performance? These are big questions that involve a lot of work to answer. In the absence of that work a lot of people will say that the best edge rushers do this a lot and it’s their most valuable ability. My opinion, though, is that it is not the most valuable skill and overvalued by the majority of people discussing pass rushing. To me it seems like arm strength for quarterbacks: it’s useful and every great QB has it but there’s a hell of a lot more to being a QB.

    I don’t think you’re understanding my posts. If you’d like to talk about defining the concept of “turning the corner” and evaluating its relative importance to pass rushing, then we can. But whatever conversation you’re having right now I’m not interested in.
