  1. The 2017 Sack Reel and Analysis

    This analysis is why I was shocked we didn't go pass rusher at #10. Now, after week 1 when Mike Daniels absolutely dominated he was nursing leg problems all year. That changed the whole dynamic of our pass rush, I'll give people that. I think he was set to move into the upper echelon of defensive linemen. Clark made strides and Wilkerson is out to prove people wrong. Given all of that we still don't have a guy who steps up behind Perry and Matthews. Matthews isn't the same guy. Neither can stay healthy for 16 games and even if they did they need breathers now and again. A solid, consistent pass rush is the one thing that could derail this defense in 2018 IMO. Better play in the secondary will help, but you can't cover for ever.
  2. I've not read through this but my two cents. The players union should push to go back to a 14 game schedule. I know that will never happen, but the game has gotten so violent as the players are so much bigger, stronger and faster. The human body can only take so much. They need to do this even if they can reasonably limit the head trauma through new rules. I don't know how they do that with offensive and defensive linemen however without ruining the game. Long story short, the game we are watching today is going to be a shell of the game we are going to see in 10 years. I am not sure it will be entertaining and the goose that keeps laying the golden egg is about to die.
  3. You can tell it's summer as nobody has jumped on this news. 2 game, for his marijuana bust. Every running back just moved up a notch on the depth chart. One that wasn't going to make it now will. Time for them to take advantage of the reprieve.
  4. I can buy into this thought process. I think in the original survey I picked the #3 OLB as the most important player due to the availability of Matthews and Perry. Now, I remember the poll. Not sure who that #3. Two of these guys at the least nees to step up: Gilbert, Biegel, Donnerson and Fackrell.
  5. We shall see! I will leave it at that.

    Yeah, drafting a long snapper is still a bit of a head scrather to me as well.
  7. I have a hard time seeing him as the most important. I hope he plays at an all-pro level. I'm a big fan of his, but this is all premature for me. Just my opinion of course. Defense in general, we have 8 guys that could really make it into the top tier at their position among NFL peers. This is the most talent we've had on defense since we lost Nick Collins to a career ending injury.
  8. It's seems by the original post, already drew the conclusion King was most important and we need to select the second. Just a query and perhaps I missed the vote on the most important. Again, just not sure how anyone can see a guy who may not start as the most important defender. Keep in mind, I hope he starts and blows up big in year two. It's very premature for me.
  9. How does one select a player who isn't guaranteed a starting spot as the most important defensive player.

    You are correct! I read the first part and ignored the bold part which, clearly pointed to his comment being about Goodson. My apologies to Joe!

    My bad if this was regarding Goodson. I thought this was about Rollins!

    Huh? He was a SECOND ROUND PICK! Sorry, you do not pick guys in the second round hoping they develop into a back-up with ST ability! He was a bust and it's OK to admit that about this second round pick. It happens, but let's be honest about it.

    The problem with Rollins at safety is his overall lack of experience playing football. Making the change to safety with his lack of speed and experience is going to be extremely tough. I expect him to be cut this training camp. It's his 4th year, he's proven nothing and given us zero return on our second round pick. I think Whitehead is way ahead of him at safety.

    Gilbert is going to be the #3 OLB in my opinion and an upgrade over last year's #3 by a stretch. I think Donnerson is going to be the #5 OLB and Fackrell will be #6 and play some at ILB when needed.
