  1. OTA's/Minicamp/Training Camp Discussion Thread

    It seems with the hiring of Koureck(m/s), we've basically gone head first with the Wide 9. From the reports, this isn't a situational nor a personnel package thing. Its a full-time thing, which Im not sure is the best move but hey, what do I know. I was hoping we would incorporate it some, in the nickel, and then gradually implement it more as we found success with it. But it seems we've fully invested in the change and will hit the ground running..

    We definitely should...but something tells me we definitely won't

    So then now we're in the Colbert/Exum basket....the plot thickens

    I have a big problem with this because I feel like they're doing with Reed what Baalke did with Ward. They're trying to have Reed fit their vision instead of playing him at his more natural position. This injury will probably push that narrative further instead having Reed compete@nickelback as he should.

    I have a feeling you're right. Its eerily similar to last year and addressing the pass-rush. Endorsing guys like Marsh through the media but secretly just waiting for the following off-season to focus on fixing the issue. Only difference is Marsh didn't go down early in OTAs with a injury so that may make it less likely for them to slow-play it. But I doubt they'll address it with a starting caliber talent like most of us hope for. They'll just then shift their eggs to the Colbert/Reed basket...which would infuriate me even more.

    I will say this development definitely makes Lynch's seat a little warm. I thought it may have been a little lukewarm following the draft but putting essentially all your eggs in such a fragile basket like Ward, with no real contingency plan in-house, does not look good. Optics wise, it comes off as a colossal misstep. Only saving grace is that it happened early enough that he can rectify the situation rather quickly....IF he's smart enough to do so.

    This excatly what they get for gambling on Mr. Glass. I'm sure Ward is probably a great teammate and person but at this point I would wholeheartedly consider another line of work. His body is obviously telling him something. Get Tre Boston or Darian Stewart in here and stop being so bullish on something even a casual fan could see coming...

    Not a fan of the Wide 9...we shall see

    If you remember, Malcolm Smith spent considerable time at SAM last year in OTAs. The SAM in Saleh scheme isn't used excatly how they do in Seattle. But I think its more of a case of just seeing how guys look at different spots early on. I don't think he stays at SAM. Like I said, he seems more likely to back-up Alexander and provide competition for Lee, more than anything.

    WR drills@OTAs. Notice Hurd on the sideline...hurt already?
  12. Around the NFL II - Even NFLier

    Damn, that's devastating. The kid is a total screw-up but that's a quality of life type of setback with the arteries being damaged. Hopefully he's able to make a full-recovery.
  13. Bucs to release Gerald McCoy

    DT shouldn't even be on our radar at this point. We have a abundance of them. McCoy adds nothing but quality depth at this point. But who are we kidding...he's not starting over DeFo and he's not a NT. There's nothing that would make this a attractive destination for him whatsoever.
  14. Minor Niner News Thread

    If we hadn't signed Coleman, I would think it would be plausible. But honestly we've sortta got the zone-blocking version of Bell, in Coleman. I've always said Bell's running style is not a great fit for zone blocking. Im sure he could adapt to the scheme if he choose to, just not sure he would. Coleman at his current price is a far better bang-for-your-buck than trading away assets for Bell.
  15. Minor Niner News Thread

    I just thought Glenn was underatted and could make a mark on STs. I mean we have a history of finding contributors through the UDFA route and I thought Glenn could have been the latest. Even more so, because we did absolutely ignore the position in draft. But like you said, it was probably invietable that neither would have had much of a impact at all.
