  1. I'm tall and long, it's a benefit of it. My dad is definitely loving life. He's playing well too. I actually just got back into playing after the regular 1/2 times a year for 10 years during college/grad school and in between those lifes. Have a buddy of mine at the new job this year that played in college and we play all the time now. I'm excited, we're actually playing bethpage this week.
  2. Oh yeah. My dad belongs to a club and plays 4 times a week in his recent retirement. He came out to the east coast to visit me/family, and we probably played 10 times in the month he was here. He played 5 times last week and I think I played 3-4. I like them a lot, and have hit the hell out of them. Those clubs go forever. I hit the 5 iron 200-210 pretty consistently.
  3. I just got a new set of these too!!! A guy my dad plays with runs a golf shop, and my dad mentioned I was looking for new irons, and sold me a brand new set of M6's that someone had given him (with a TMB 4i) for 250. Dad snagged it and gave them to me. This was after I got a set of MP-32's to challenge myself and my dad laughed at me and said I couldn't hit them.
  4. QB: Chiefs RB Broncos (Really could go to any team this year, Ekeler/CEH have a shot to carry the load and be elite pass catchers) WR: Broncos TE: Chiefs OL: Raiders DL: Chargers (Depends on what you think of Von/Chubb as, but Bosa/Ingram IMO barely edge them out even if you do consider them) LB: Broncos (Again, could probably go to anyone not named the Chiefs, so much projection with all 3 teams, depends on what you say when you mean LB, Von/Chubb get included here) CB: Chargers (easily) S: Chargers This probably comes off way biased, bu
  5. I see 14-2 as an absolute upside. I think that the questionmarks aren't at super important positions. The downside of Taylor is also his upside. He's incredibly safe, almost to a fault. He skirted the balance REALLY well in Buffalo, I think we see that again if we're lucky. But the efficiency is going to be key with this defense. As for the Niners/Ravens, you act like they're elite at all the positions, Bozeman and Skura are far from that. This OL IMO, very easily emulates the Vikings, and the success they could have. They're a very good outside zone blocking team, and have guys that
  6. Ah, ever the optimist bolts fan. I guess I don't really get where the powerback part comes in, but we are planning on running the Baltimore offense essentially. I mean it was the Buffalo offense before that, and the 49er offense before that, but same concept. The powerback isn't needed at all, especially since both Kelley and Ekeler are more than strong/built enough to carry a load. Kelley in particular is a pretty similar back to Ingram stylistically (not necessarily as good). He's more north south with elite vision and some breakaway speed. He strikes me as kind of a faster Alfred Morr
  7. http://www.draftscout.com/dsprofile.php?PlayerId=66869&DraftYear=2011 I'm pretty sure the official was 4.63 and the unofficial was 4.53. But either way, I do think Kaep is a little faster, but not significantly. I still think Luck is the best comp for Herbert, very similar athleticism.
  8. Herbert and Kaep ran almost the exact same 40. Just sayin.
  9. Honestly I thought the Murray diagnosing stuff was overblown. It was really 1 game where he struggled (the first matchup vs Baylor), and there were 3-4 of the exact same plays where he overran a gap (that I don't think was really his play to make). Obviously its bad because it resulted in 2 TD's and a big 1st down but it seemed more situational and getting out schemed than anything else. He was the weakside backer in all the plays, and the way they coached it was that the playside LB shoots his gap, and then the weakside backer drags over the top to kind of be a cleanup player. It almost s
  10. Yeah, that's why Luck is my "upside" comparison. But the way they play, and their tape is actually really similar in terms of how they move and how they're footwork is. But yeah, Herbert's always been a though eval because of all of the factors that went into why he struggled. There's just so much to unravel there. But I think it ultimately comes down to the fact that he HAS shown that he can anticipate, and has shown everything you want, and even strung it together for full games (Colorodo was as elite a game as you can find from a prospect), but just when he got rolling, things came to a h
  11. So this is going to sound really biased, but I went back and watched Andrew Luck, and while they have their differences, Luck and Herbert play REALLY similarly. They were both more "see it" throwers, and didn't really anticipate as much, but they both sort of broke down mechanically when plays didn't develop very well. Luck was better at the nuances of the game, and when things broke down, the biggest difference is that he trusted any one of his 3 NFL TE's to throw it up to. Herbert didn't have anyone to do that with. I would say Herbert is a more underdeveloped Luck. And basically not havin
  12. I find it hard to think our defense doesn't carry us to at least a 7 win season. Probably the best combination of secondary and pass rush in the NFL, MUCH improved run defense with Linval and Murray. As long as Derwin/Bosa stay mostly healthy, we have the depth to weather pretty much any other injury. The offense at the very least, should have a solid run game, and a decent short passing game, if nothing else just off the back of KA, Ekeler and Henry. People have long underestimated Feeney and then this year they're all of the sudden going to say "CAMPEN FIXED FEENEY" when he's been good for
  13. Yeah, which is something Roman uses a lot, with both the 9ers and the Bills with Tyrod there. I don't particularly think that it'll be a duplicate of that. Also we ran more run pass options with Rivers than you would think, the run was just play action, and were real RPO's.
  14. I think people overstate "taking concepts from x offense". You guys have to remember that Lynn spent a lot of time learning under Roman and developing the offense with him for Tyrod in Buffalo. I think they have a very solid plan in place for him already which was a lot of what they succeeded with when they had him in Buffalo. Roman is one of the best guys out there at designing a running game, and I think Campen will help with that. I also think that Herbert benefits from that same thing. I could see them running a similar offense to what the 9ers ran in SF with Kaep.
  15. Did some early work looking into Josh Dunlop and Ryan Roberts. Both are really interesting. They're very much both lungers and can lose balance at times, but both of them showcase really good lateral agility and have really solid saquare power. They're exactly the prototype guy that I expect from Campen. Really good initial quickness and get out of thier stance quick for reach blocks and pass sets. Both are smart with the awareness to pass off stunts and twists. Roberts especially is incredibly versatile. He's played games at both OG and OT spots in his college career, starting
