  1. Tracking Baker Mayfield VS. Sam Darnold's 1st Yr Play

    I don't disagree that I REALLY like what I see. I'm just saying I'm going game by game and enjoying hoping this continues. So far hes started 4 games. As much as I hope that continues, I don't wanna get ahead of myself.... Again, that being said I love what I see. His ability to break tackles and stay on his feet is astounding. I am loving watching this kid run...

    Peterson started out on the bench despite averaging 5.6 yards per carry primarily because Chester Taylor was more experienced and also averaging mid 5's (5.4) yards per attempt. Maybe its a revisionist history thing, but comparing it to Adrian Petersons beginning is comparing it to the start of what we now know as a Hall of Fame career, so its hard for me to view that way. That being said I LOVED Chubb before he got hurt. After he never really seemed to regain what he had before. That's why he wasn't top 10 because he never again looked in college like he did his freshman and sophomore years. It is certainly looking up for him and I'm hoping he can maintain this!

    I think calling Chubb Adrian Peterson is getting a little ahead of ourselves. That being said! Based on what hes done so far... If he continues production through the last 6 weeks like he has in games hes played....hes is on pace for 1,274 yards... (I considered the first 6 games with the 16 carries he got as 1 start) If he played the whole season at this insane pace, he would be on track for 1,862 yards. So maybe your not all that far off.... I just don't know that he can keep up a 6.2 yard per carry average. I would be thrilled with 4.7-5.0 :-P

    So....not that what hes doing isn't impressive, but I have NO idea how he is getting those numbers. If you assume Baker has played for 7.5 games, and has 1984 yards and 13 touchdowns and 7 Interceptions... If he finishes the season he will play 13.5 games with 3,571 yards and 23 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. That being said those numbers are still REALLY impressive for a rookie... Carson Wentz rookie season was 16 games with 3,782 yards, 16 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Derek Carrs rookie season was 16 games with 3,270 yards, 21 touchdowns and 12 interceptions Andrew Lucks rookie seasons was 16 games 4,374 yards, 23 touchdowns and 18 interceptions. RGIII's rookie season was 15 games for 3,200 yards, 20 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. Russell Wilsons rookie season was 16 games 3,118 yards for 26 touchdowns and 10 interceptions Cam Newtons rookie season was 16 games 4,051 yards for 21 touchdowns and 17 interceptions These are the best rookies I could think of in this new passing era... If baker played all 16 games, based on his average right now (ignoring the half game for average purposes) he would be on pace for around 4,075 yards, 29 touchdowns, and 16 interceptions. I think we can all agree we have something to be excited for...
  5. THE QUEST FOR THE COACH HATH BEGUN

    This is at least leaves me hopeful
  6. THE QUEST FOR THE COACH HATH BEGUN

    Honestly, my love for Toub is he is loved by his players and coaches. He does a great job with what he has. And I am a huge Proponent of hiring a special teams coordinator as a head coach. Its less about devising a scheme and more about working with the players you have to create opportunities. You get whatever players the Head Coach gives you, and you build a relationship with them and get them to play for you. I see more of the CEO training in a special teams coordinator than I do an offensive or defensive coordinator. I could see Toub hiring a OC and DC that are well thought of and experianced so he can focus on the head coaching side of things. My biggest drawback is if you hire an OC as HC who calls the plays, he would be around for a while. If you hire Toub as HC and he brings in his OC, if the OC is successful he could leave for a HC gig. Then you would have to bring in someone else and change systems (ala Kyle Shannahan for Atlanta). That being said I want a stable HC who will be around forever, I don't think being a good OC qualifies you to be a head coach (look at Hue as a perfect example). I want a guy who has success being a leader of men and not just creatively calling plays.

    You mean we could be 7-8 next year and 8-8 the following?!?!?!
  8. Kirksey and Gaines done for the season.

    The thing that's not mentioned as much though is Kirksey is a leader in the locker room. I agree his play has been suspect, but he has a lot of value.
  9. Kirksey and Gaines done for the season.

    Welp....Shobert is back....
  10. THE QUEST FOR THE COACH HATH BEGUN

    Obviously I don't want that to happen, but if it does, and Dorsey, Wolf, Highsmith, etc leave.... I hope they tear Haslem apart on the way out explaining to everyone how he will never win that way...
  11. THE QUEST FOR THE COACH HATH BEGUN

    Haslem should have known he needed to fire Hue and let Dorsey hire his own guy at the beginning of this season... and yet....
  12. THE QUEST FOR THE COACH HATH BEGUN

    This scares the living hell out of me. I can't believe Haslem doesn't understand that he's the problem yet... He brought in Intelligent well respected football people to run the organization, I don't understand why he doesn't let them do exactly that. I hope were not suck with a terrible person like Josh McDaniels (though i love his system, what he did to Indy and the coaches he hired is unforgivable). He could keep this organization in a hole...
  13. THE QUEST FOR THE COACH HATH BEGUN

    The way he talks about him I would be suprised if he doens't hire Chuck Pagano as his DC.
  14. THE QUEST FOR THE COACH HATH BEGUN

    VERY interesting.... This is a head coach I could definitely get behind, with creativity on offense, and training a young OC, maybe even staying with Kitchens, to be the OC and train Baker.
  15. 2019 Off-Season Roster Building: Free Agency & Draft

    Certainly. I'm not saying its not a huge part of the equation. But a head coach that does great with a QB and helps him progress but cant win games isn't going to last anyway. We are looking for a head coach. We need someone that can coach, someone who knows game situations, knows who clock management, knows when to challange, knows how to get men to play hard and follow him and earn their respect. not just someone that can call plays or design an offense around Baker. We need a head coach that can get along with him, someone who can bring in an offensive coordinator that can design a system around him. But lets not forget we are looking for a head coach not a best friend for Mayfield.
