  1. 2018 Draft Thread I

    12 more points (theoretically) and we would be 5-1 (counting only one point needed to keep two games from going into OT). Anyway, point is we may be winless but we are a heck of a lot better than a whole lot of teams over the years that were 0-6 to start the season. I do think we need to start hoping those other teams teams with only 1 or 2 wins now win at least a couple more because I still see us winning a few games this year.

    I agree. When I said he wouldn't last till the third I actually was thinking that the way QBs get taken these days he could go at the bottom of the first. Like you I think it might depend on how many other qbs get taken ... but there are always teams looking for qbs
  3. Suppose we're picking first or second ... a QB with our first pick, then we could trade both our seconds to move up into the first for the best edge rusher out there, and sign a really good C or G in FA. Or, maybe use those two seconds on a G and a C and try to find and edge rusher later or in FA, or make that our top priority the follwoing year.
  4. Foster when he's back, and Smith next year when he gets well will be a reaslly good pair and make us forget Coyle and RayRay

    Surpsised IF he went in the second? I'd be surprised if he goes any lower.

    Interesting. I think of Cousins as being quite a bit bigger than Mayfield but according to team listings Mayfield actually weighs a bit more and is only two inches shorter. We'll see what the real numbers are when the combine measurements show up. Maybe Mayfield can not only be a Wilson type, but an improved Cousins. He's really accurate, which Shanny loves, he's athletic and mobile which will be huge assets. He's also got the "it" thing going and is tough as heck out there, which is what Shanny said attracted him to Beathard. The question is how well can he diagnose defenses and quickly figure out what to do and where to go with the ball.

    Wow. I've been crriticizing that move since the day I heard about it but no one else seems bothered by it. It's not huge, but I do think it was a mistake.

    I really like. Mayfield. Could be be a Wilson type guy in the NFL?

    Just discovered a rule that I didn't know about and it makes me wonder.... Michigan had the ball with about one minute left in the half and wanted to run out the clock. So they let all the time run off the clock which took them down to 21. Blut the delay of game penalty caused an automatic 10 servings runoff. So far OK. But then the refs restarted the clock and the rest of the time ran off. What? Michigan just successfully used up about a minute of time without running a play. What I'm wondering is what if there's 2 or 3 minutes left. Can a team just keep taking delay of game penalties and have the clock restarted after each one? Doesn't that let a team with a lead late in a close game just sit there and refuse to snap the ball?
  11. Wow. From playing one week to out of the league the next week. Strange for a rookie who had so much preseason hype. Maybe that 4.8 forty finally came into play here. No amount of development was going to change that.
  12. DOn't know where else to put this so I'll try here ... did we add Jerome back to our PS? Hard to believe he could make game day roster and get a bunch of snaps and then not be promising enough to keep on the PS. Oh wait, unless someone else signed him.

    I said early on after Lynch was hired that a lot of Trent's guys would be gone in a year or so. But even I didn't expect this big of a turnover in the roster. HYde, KIlgore and Celek, and possibly even Staley could all be gone too by the start of next season.

    By the way Wsu also had a 1 yard punt which is the equivalent of an 8th turnover

    Luke Falk??? Call might just have had one of the best defensive games (statistically at least) in the history of college football. OK, maybe a bit of an exaggeration. But they got 7 turnovers and sacked Falk 9 times! That's just amazing. FWIW I watched. Falk a couple times last year and was not impressed. I think he's the perfect example of a system qb.
