  1. 1[12]: Rashan Gary [EDGE; Michigan]

    Rashan Gary was a 295 lb DT when he came to Michigan.... He came to Michigan as a physical size/ speed combo freak and he left as even a more physical specimen. They moved him up and down their defensive front to find the best fit and he didn't dominate in anyone of them. I'm not surprised by anything. He never consistently showed that he was a dominate edge rusher while at Michigan. Not uninformed at all. I'm a life long Michigan fan and a former season ticket holder that watched every snap of his college career. The difference is I'm not going to sugar coat it because he's now a Packer. I'm a big Rashan Gary fan but I'm concerned that he's not ever going to be anything more than a mediocre football player. Personally, I think he's a much better fit for the defensive line than he is the edge.

    I'm a Michigan homer, and it's impossible to argue that Rashan Gary wasn't anything but a terrible pass rusher while at Michigan. They moved Gary all over that front to try to get pass rush out of him and they didn't have much success doing it. Whether that's because of injuries or Gary not being a great player is up for determination. I refuse to believe that Michigan intentionally sacrificed pass rush in their usage of Gary. If he was the unstoppable force he's being made out to be then Michigan would have used him in that manner IMO. Who's projecting a bust? Certainly not me. I'm simply pointing out that it's crazy to blame only Michigan's coaching staff for his issue. Also think it's dumb to say that Gary made 2 better football players money given how much better they've looked thus far in their NFL careers.

    A freak that was a piss poor pass rusher that absolutely couldn't be depended on. If Gary was the Von Miller caliber edge rusher you are making him out to be I've got a hard time believing that Michigan wouldn't have used him in that manner. That staff moved Gary all over the defensive front in an effort to get the best fit possible and Gary was never anything more than a mediocre pass rusher. If there was a coaching staff issue then we've got the same exact issue on our current staff given what little he's shown this preseason. Until Gary shows he's an elite edge rusher I find blaming the Michigan coaching staff to be crazy.

    It's ridiculous because you are ignoring the fact that both Chase and Bush have had very good preseasons. Gary on the other hand has looked less than ordinary. You are correct, it is preseason which makes Gary looking terrible even more concerning. If he's going to get dominated by a back up he's got no chance against a legit starting NFL tackle.

    Crap, you are right. Brain fart, didn't see the Ravens game so I forgot to include them. Thanks for catching it!

    This comment looks ridiculous given how well Bush and Winovich have looked this preseason. A lot like while at Michigan, Winovich has looked like twice the player thus far in the NFL.

    I'd imagine that Chase Winovich would strongly disagree with the idea that Michigan deserves all the blame for Rashan Gary being a piss poor pass rusher. Does Nick Saban generally put the development of a single player over the success of their team? That's what would have happened. Michigan's pass rush would have suffered it required Rashan Gary to be a dominate edge rusher.

    Think it's related to the field condition against Oakland. Neither he nor Gmo played a snap. Allen Lazard 75 Darrius Shepherd 72 Trevor Davis 48 (100% in week 2) Jmon Moore 39 Jake Kumerow 39 Equanimeous St Brown 25 Teo Redding 9 Geronimo Allison 8 MVS 8 J. Davis 7 Malik Taylor 6

    MVS has gotten 8 snaps this preseason.
  10. A few predictions about the MLF Offense

    That was a good read thanks for sharing. George Kittle is probably my favorite TE in the NFL to watch right now. If there is a TE in the league that I'd want him to learn from it's definitely Kittle. They are really similar in terms of build and athleticism. I had a lot of doubts about Tonyan coming into the season because it's a really tough position switch but I'd love to see him prove me wrong. I think this offense badly needs a 3 down TE.

    You are underselling Janis. If anything, it's a wash. Statistically Janis was the better kick returner. He's got multiple returns that were almost twice as long as Trevor Davis' longest career kick return (34 yards). Trevor Davis is obviously the better punt returner because Janis never returned a punt. As a gunner, Jeff Janis was substantially more effective. Davis is a pretty good punt returner but he's pretty easily replaced in every other aspect of his game IMO.

    He got hurt 3 separate times last year which resulted in him missing most of camp, multiple preseason games and all but 2 games. He followed that year with another injury that has resulted in him missing half of camp/ preseason. I don't see anything wrong with questioning his ability to stay on the field. That's an awful lot of injuries in 12 months for the little bit of live action he's seen.

    I mean he is almost strictly a returner given his uselessness as a receiver over his career. In today's NFL, I'd imagine that 5 returnable touches in 2 weeks for guys who don't do anything but return kicks is right around the normal. With fair catches and the vast majority of kickoffs being touch backs returners impact on games are minimal.

    We'd have had a 50/50 shot with anyone staying in the endzone rather than coming out. Stasitically speaking, Davis actually wasn't any better of a kick returner than Monty had been over his career.
  15. 2019 WR Corps

    Not saying that all. Just pointing out that he had absolutely no effect on the team last year in the 2 games he played in. Davis is a good return man when he's on the field.
