  1. Cavaliers Thread: Embrace The Mediocrity

    If we are being honest with ourselves it’s not like we could sign a guy like Love in free agency so we might as well just keep him. He’ll probably re-sign here on a team friendly deal at the end of this contract too (ideally).
  2. Cavaliers Thread: Embrace The Mediocrity

    Hopefully Love balls tf out the first half of next season and we can get a really good deal out of a contender before the trade deadline. Imo that’s the scenario we would get the most for him.
  3. Bostic released

    On Burns, He reminds be a lot of Morris Claiborne. Super talented in man coverage and had a good first year under Rob Ryan playing mostly man. The next year after Ryan was gone and they switched to Tampa 2 D is when people started labeling him as a bust. He got an opportunity to move back towards a man coverage scheme and revived his career. Scheme is really important to the cornerbacks. You’ve got to set them up for success. Don’t try and put a round peg into a square hole. That’s why versatile corners who can excel in both zone and man are so valuable. Remember what happened to Nnamdi Asomugha when he switched to the Eagles late in his career?

    Tackles are a terrible statistic to judge corners off of. Yes, a high tackle count can show that he was involved in the run game but it can also mean that they were picked on and gave up a lot of easy receptions. Not judging Layne either way, just pointing out that you have to watch the tape to know what kind of tackles he was racking up.

    Peterson suspended the first 6 games 👀

    I want them to take Hunter but if the Lakes snag him at #4 I hope we swing for the fences and take Coby White. He was my favorite non-FSU player last year, so fun to watch him play (not just because of his hair). If he can add some strength and size while keeping his speed, he will be an all star.
  7. Bleacher Report article about trades

    If you think Patrick Peterson will have the same type of impact for our defense that Khalil Mack had for the Bears (I think he would) then you have to give up a FRP for him if he's available at that price and we can figure out a way to afford him. Ben only has 3 years left. Haden and Peterson on the outside would help out our average pass rush tremendously and could potentially vault us to having a top 5 defense. We will have added Mark Barron, Steven Nelson, Devin Bush, Justin Layne, and Patrick Peterson without losing anyone significant.
  8. Who Was The Most Underrated NBA Player This Season?

    Sexton didn't get enough recognition for what he did the 2nd half of the season.

    Vikings looking to trade TE Kyle Rudolph. Man would I love for us to go after him. Does he provide anything more than a health Vance McDonald though?

    Gotta love Bush knowing his stuff and calling out defensive calls/being a vocal leader from day 1.
  11. The Curious Case of OLB Bud Dupree

    Bud's biggest problem has been staying on the field. When you're as big of a project and have as bad of technique as him, you have to be able to stay on the field to improve. He has also played through some serious injuries which clearly hasn't helped either. It's hard to focus on improving your technique when you're constantly playing injured. When he has been on the field, he hasn't shown the ability to win WITH TECHNIQUE against tackles with any level on consistency. That is the difference between him and TJ Watt and why the general fan's perception of them is different. TJ has a decent variety of pass rush moves and the majority of his sacks come from beating the tackle he's going up against. Not to mention he's better against the run and in coverage. A lot of Dupree's sacks are either "clean up" or "coverage" sacks. That or he gets a free run to the QB due to OL mis-communication or the scheme setting him up to do so.
  12. Bostic released

    To be fair, Gilbert had showed literally nothing when we gave up a pick for him as well. Not saying we will get a pick, just saying it is a possibility someone will throw us a 6th to see if they can kick the tires on a former first round pick who has struggled with confidence. I'm in the minority but I'm not ready to 100% give up on Burns just yet. Towards the end of 2017 he was showing signs of improvement but I just think he had a really bad start to the season last year and once he got benched there was no fixing his confidence. I bet people forget that he was Top 5(!!) in both CB yards per target allowed and CB yards per game allowed in 2017. Also we have asked him to play a ton of off man coverage which we know is not what he is best at. He has showed flashes of lockdown capabilities for short periods of time but then he just will get burnt badly twice in one game and start playing like crap. Again, I'm not trying to say Artie is a lockdown corner and should start for us this year, just saying I'm not ready to 100% give up yet and I don't think the coaches are either.
  13. Bostic released

    Hopefully we could get a pick for Burns instead of out right cutting him. Browns were able to get a pick from us (don't remember what round) for Justin Gilbert.
  14. Bostic released

    I understand why dirty red could be gone but man I love watching him on kickoffs. He might be my favorite special team we’ve had since James Harrison was dominating that group a few years ago. I’m not sure why everyone is convinced K Adams is more of a sure thing to make the team when he’s done nothing yet.
  15. Call me crazy if you want but I’m watching Snell’s highlight video and I feel like I’m watching Bell play at Michigan State. Let’s not forget Bell was known coming out of college as a “bruiser.” Bell in college and Bell in the NFL were two different players. Could Snell get on a crazy diet/workout plan like Bell did, lose 15-20lbs and become a more dynamic player?
