  1. How good is Jared Goff?

    He's very good, but I do think McVay makes him look better than he is. But regardless, he's very comfortable in McVay's scheme and he's maximizing his potential and talent, which can't be understated.

    I'd be okay with giving Marty the ole' boot and bringing in Kubiak.

    I agree ^ the more people we drive up a wall having Lamar run the ball a lot, the better. Just limit the hits he's taking. That's all. Run him 50 times a game for all I care. EDIT: Here's a hit I don't like him taking. You've gotten 20 yards, just slide.

  5. WAS signs QB Mark Sanchez

    Having Mark Sanchez as your backup to Colt McCoy is like having Jim Sorgi be your backup to Curtis Painter.
  6. 2018 Rookie Talk

    Over the past 3 weeks, Hurst has been on the field 44% of the time (44.1%, 44.3%, 44.3%), and has seen a whopping 5 targets in those 3 games - one of those 5 targets resulted in his only touchdown reception of the year and it was from Lamar Jackson in garbage time. So even when Flacco was playing and Hurst was on the field 44% of the time, we still haven't made any attempts to get him involved. If we're going to see Hurst struggled his rookie year and then give us 2-3 good years before he retires when he's 31 years old, no thank you. If you're going to draft an older player, the expectation is they should be ready to freaking go day one. If Hurst was a guy who can win positioning battles in man coverage, why are we not isolating him 1v1 and throwing jump balls like we are with Andrews (who has not won a single one of those, mind you)? Hurst is clearly athletic, why are we not designing TE screens for him and instead throwing them to Nick "I can run 1.5mph AND THAT'S IT" Boyle? I'm not ready to give up on Hurst, because right now I think it's scheme more than anything hurting Hurst's chances at having an even mediocre year.
  7. Redskins Smith breaks leg

    I'll just patiently wait here for 2-3 weeks for your tune to change about Alex Smith, because I guarantee it will once you've had a full dose of Colt McCoy or Mark Sanchez.

    ...it's like teaching DATDA at Hogwarts.
  9. Redskins Smith breaks leg

    Kaepernick...the guy who played with Alex Smith in SF in the same offense Smith ran and then came in took that offense to the Superbowl, would be a poor fit? Well I guess this is all a moot point because y'all just signed Mark f'n Sanchez, so good luck with ole' butt fumble. EDIT: Speaking of..
  10. GDT Week 10: It all comes down to this...

    Speaking of defense, snap counts for yesterday: Suggs' snap count continues to climb every week as his production continues to dwindle. Judon's snap count also went down to 53% as Za'Darius' grows to 78%. Bowser still at 16%, Levine at 25%. I just don't see how anyone can justify giving Suggs almost 90% of defensive snaps when he's doing nothing on the field.
  11. 2018 Rookie Talk

    Yeah I agree, which is why I'm curious to see what people who have access to the tape are saying about Hurst. Is he just lost? Is he not even getting snaps (just checked the snap counts yesterday and Hurst was on the field for 44% of offensive snaps and did not have a single target in the passing game. Nick Boyle was on the field for 67%, Mark Andrews for 32%). I'm just so confused. Did we COMPLETELY scout this guy wrong, or is Marty refusing to get him involved? I wasn't a fan of the pick at the time, but I still want to believe this guy can't be so bad that he can't even receive more looks in the passing game than our blocking TE. Completely agreed.
  12. 2018 Rookie Talk

    Thing is...we haven't seen enough of him on the field to know if he sucks and can't get open or if we're just not doing anything to get him the ball or not. I haven't watched enough tape of him or seen him on the field enough to know one way or the other.
  13. Playoff Picture- The Final 7

    Yeah I agree with this. Running 11 personnel with Hurst in-line and Andrews in the slot mixing it up with Snead/Brown on the outside (bench Crabtree for all I care at this point) is what we should be aiming to do. We'll face less stacked boxes, which will open up the run game, which will open up the passing game.
  14. Random Ravens Thoughts: New Forum Edition

    Agreed here. I don't believe in putting him on a pitch count for the sake of putting him on a pitch count. If he's getting down and protecting himself and not taking big hits, let him run it 20 times a game, I don't care. However, if he's gonna take hit after hit after hit like he did yesterday, he's not going to last very long.
