    the biggest concern I have for dillon is the feet. Can he make anyone miss; can he read the right lane and then run through it with quick enough feet. To me that's the difference between marshawn lynch and Chris ivory

    King is just... a really unique player. he's so tall and long. I hope pettine puts these two to work in different ways depending on the opposing WRs rather than matching Jaire against the #1 all the time. Jaire is like a guy who is purpose built to take emmanuel sanders or other route technicians out of the game. Jaire does everything pretty well, and plays above his size. He's also the closest we have in the secondary to a true playmaker who will come off his assignment to make an INT or jump a route if he sees the opportunity. King seems super well suited to cover AJ green or Kenny Golladay or other long striding receivers with air skills. I'm not gonna say Julio since Julio does everything Sanders does well too. King is also tall enough to cover a split out TE. Both are good tacklers against wrs and TEs. The biggest pass coverage gap this team has is against a move TE. They lack a really fast competent LB/S hybrid who can make these light boxes work in practice. I don't think that's Amos after watching him for one year, but maybe if they get more from Savage they can let Amos do more roaming and disruption.

    there just aren't many teams with really deep groups at corner. I'd rather have 2 guys you can count on to compete with the other team's best weapons than have a lesser top end and deeper group. For once, I'm not worried about the secondary. It's the best it's been since the 2013 season. If a young player arises from that group of UDFA/7th rounders/Josh Jackson trash heap then this will be the second strongest unit after Edge. If Savage stalls out in his development and isn't a great player, that could also be an issue.

    I think if you assume that King and Alexander are better than just "good", then I don't see it as weak on paper at all. S is a pretty strong group. King is the biggest ? since he can't be trusted to stay healthy. But, he had his best year last year along with his healthiest year. He gets a lot of flak on here and Alexander always gets a pass, but I don't think they are that far apart in overall talent/skill.

    i think his bigger problem is he can't throw the ball that well

    Clay was still effective, and who is Tarell Basham?
  8. 2020 Offense Outlook

    I also think that we might regress a bit running the ball due to the OL not being as strong, while improve passing the ball. At the same time, I think we are gonna run more running plays than last year, and fewer passing plays. Which sucks because it should probably be the opposite. But the PA passing plays as a result will really really pop and will be what people remember, not the 3 yard gains on 2nd and 8. I think that will make the offense "appear" better but not actually necessarily be better in terms of points per drive or ppg. As far as the quarter thing... that was something hugely infuriating to a lot of fans. It sucks to slowly get worse as the game goes on. I think there is a pretty substantial gap between how people "think" this offense performed last year, like they were league average, and how they actually performed, which was in the top 1/3 or top 1/4 depending on the metric. The 8th ranked offense in points/drive is really really tough to improve upon. The only significant upgrades made on the offense is replacing Graham with an unknown, and adding a pu pu platter at WR to replace Allison. Lastly, nobody wants to talk about this, but there's always a good chance rodgers, Jones or Adams has an injury which either causes him to be stunted or miss games. Davante missed 4 games last year, Rodgers missed 0, Jones missed 0. Everyone else on the team was also ridiculously healthy. I feel a lot better about Jones missing games with Dillon on board. Rodgers missing games is still a death sentence in terms of games won, even with Love on board.
  9. 2020 Offense Outlook

    Almost certainly not, but I think it might look better. Offense was pretty good just very hot/cold last year. I expect it'll be more consistent this year which might help, might not help.

    my post wasn't meant to be a rag on lacy, just to show some of the other players for which to compare him. I think i've come around to the idea that I don't like taking RBs in the 2nd, but for a 2nd round RB, he was good. Esp since they got some really good seasons out of him and didn't have to suffer through any pathetic ones on a 2nd expensive contract.

    Rookie RBs drafted in 2nd round: http://pfref.com/tiny/CjLOD 2nd year RBs drafted in 2nd round: http://pfref.com/tiny/BiJRK 3rd year RBs... http://pfref.com/tiny/YjlIJ 4th year RBs... http://pfref.com/tiny/EOBwd Players break out in different years. Lacy was definitely unusual in having his best seasons his first 2, but it's not unheard of either.
