  1. Absolutely the talent is there, but my point with isolating that national championship touchdown was to really illustrate the bigger problem that i think could explain this year as a whole - on that play, he couldn't have cared less and got burned. coming into this year, he. felt he was a first round pick and could just show up and make that happen. to me, that raises a huge red flag character wise (much more so than someone getting popped for weed). Is that correctable? 100% - guys mature at different rates both physically and socially. However, you're really drafting someone for their rookie
  2. Wade jogging on that touchdown play in the national championship will take him (rightfully so, it was bush league) off of a ton of team's boards. if you can't be going full tilt every play in the natty, that tells me you think you've already made it. hate that kinda attitude
  3. Lol, he was my brother's best friend in high school actually. Crazy athlete (Sean was georgia player over calvin Johnson, then dealt with injuries at Miami of Ohio, and their dad was a DB at indiana) but doesn't work in football. Kid had an absolute cannon and should have been a QB in high school, but DLS tends to play favorites with kids that came up in their camps and he never got a shot. If he had gone to a different high school, would not have shocked me if he tore it up as a college QB.
  4. People also forget that McVay's grandfather was the GM of the 9ers in the Montana/ Young era. He essentially grew up in NFL circles. I'm actually family friends with them from when they were living out in California and Sean was just getting hired in Washington. used to watch De la Salle games with him when I was in 8th grade and he'd talk about family dinners with the Grudens when he and his brother were kids. Very few, if any, coaches have the connections he did. (not to say he hasn't deserved to rise up the ranks as quickly as he has, clearly he's proven he's in the upper echelon)
  5. last night's game was really the first time i watched Wilson, other than the highlights. kid is an absolute natural, but definitely has some inconsistencies. Easy arm strength, really good on the run (had one cross body throw rolling out to his right that was pretty awesome), and just looks like a shortstop out there. definitely needs to be coached up to find the right balance of mitigating risk while still taking advantage of his school yard type play, but he really jumps off the screen. definitely seems like a guy that will either be a huge boom all-pro kinda guy or flame out spectacula
  6. Well said. I think it can definitely be a tie-breaker in some situations. With the Ferrell pick though, I don't think that should have been anywhere near a tie. Ferrell always looked like a guy that would be a very solid pro (for some reason Kyle vanden bosch just came to mind) but not a true game breaker based on athletic limitations. Allen looked like a physical freak (and I believe the combine confirmed that if I'm not mistaken) that could single handedly take over games from multiple spots. Seems like this was the raiders valuing intangibles too highly, despite Allen supposedly having grea
  7. who knows if he'll declare, but Graham Mertz needs to be mentioned here. Looks to have good size, really natural throwing the ball from different arm slots and is leading a pretty prolific air attack at wisconsin of all places. Obviously a RS Fr and 2 games in, but what we've seen so far is very impressive, going back to his Army All-American game performance. As with any young guy, needs to show consistency over this year and next, but if he continues to play to this level I expect him to declare next year and be well within the 1st round conversation.
  8. I think one of the things that was constantly overlooked with him was how poor his OC was in college. As a Duck fan, I could not have been happier when Arroyo was signed by UNLV. I think he really was held back in his development by the way Arroyo wanted to run the offense. He was never going to be a horizontal/ quick game kind of guy but thats how we always tried to run our offense throughout his 4 years. He's now in a system that suits his style and has the playmakers to pull it off... Now, that being said, he's exceeded any reasonable expectations that people could have had, because he defi
  9. Analysts seem to love Slovis for some of the same reasons you mentioned. He looks comfortable in the pocket only to get to his 4th read and throw a checkdown. He does have very good fundamentals, but as a prospect that makes him a backup when that's his big selling point. You have to consider physical limitations, and Slovis is a thin framed kid with very limited mobility and arm strength in a league that values those things more and more. He's more of a Fromm kind of guy imo. very good college QB who isn't going to lose you games and probably hangs around the league as a backup, but ends up a
  10. Homer pick here and he absolutely needs some significant development (wouldn't shock me if he's more of a 2023 QB), but Tyler Shough is a kid to keep an eye on going forward. Big kid (6'5 probably 215-220 right now as a RsSoph) that can really move around and has thrown some beautiful deep balls in his 2 games as a starter. Oregon's offensive playcalling looks light years better under Moorhead and he is going to have a really talented group of playmakers over the next few seasons. Physically has what you look for from an athleticism and arm strength perspective, just needs to continue to progr
  11. really well said. it's too bad that you continue to see mismanaged injury situations like this. I understand that coaching windows (and front office) tend to be short, so they are always pushing for immediate results, but it seems like long-term planning has gone out the window in most organizations. Knew Marcus pretty well when I was at UO and he really is an awesome dude - super humble and never acted the BMOC, just wanted to be one of the guys. How he handled last year in Tennessee didn't surprise me at all, and I think it really showcase his character. Hard not to root for a guy like that.
  12. could see both Carr and Mariota pulling a Tannehill in their second stops (Mariota taking over this year and Carr next year with another team). both have shown promise at one point or another but injuries rocked their confidence a bit and they became overly conservative. Change of scenery seems like the best thing for each to be able to shed the bust label (if you consider Carr a bust, being a 2nd rounder he's pretty much delivered on expectations)
  13. lol, I'm a huge duck fan (class of 2015) and I don't even believe this. Herbert is crazy talented, but has a lot to improve on (biggest issue is consistency, which he lacks in a few areas). I do have faith in him because his OC was garbage and his receivers average at best, plus he's not one of those kids that's been working with private coaches for years, so I think he has a lot of room for development now that he's fully committed to football and has quality coaching. I don't think Wentz is a bad comparison for his ceiling (Wentz is very good when healthy), but to say it's his floor is silly
  14. they still prevent SOME droplets from going out into the air, that makes a difference even if it's not as significant as a cloth mask. It also comes down to optics - at least wearing something shows that you took a second to think about someone other than yourself
  15. It absolutely doesn't. the arguments against wearing a mask are frankly ridiculous. People should live by one rule: don't be an a** hole, and that is exactly what wearing a mask represents. Is it a perfect prevention system? No, but it shows that you at least took 3 seconds to think about your fellow man. It honestly baffles me that this is even an issue - they don't affect your breathing significantly (surgeons wear masks for hours on end and you don't see them passing out due to oxygen deprivation), and not wearing one is just broadcasting to the world that you are selfish. While everyone ha
