Bears Trade Back Into 2nd for Anthony Miller

I remember thinking when Frost was at UO that he'd end up with Nebraska due to his playing career. Money talks of course but my money would have been on Nebraska anyway,

Right, the only way they would have gotten him IMO is if they went all in before Nebraska had a chance to seriously go after him.

 

Of course as reactionary as these programs are, they might have rushed in as soon as they found out Florida offered the job. But not being tenacious towards getting him is the big issue for me. Or even Chip Kelly, I wouldn't want him as a pro coach but as a college coach he can win you a lot of games. Outside of Prescott he hasn't made any QB excel from his direct coaching IMO. Tebow, Smith, etc were just excellent college players, some guys like Fitzgerald and Leak did worse their 2nd year with him. I can't really hold his SEC record against him, he took Miss St and di well except against Bama and LSU, and simply put he wasn't going to match them just because of recruiting alone.

 

IDK, I'm just apprehensive of Mullen.

Just heard my favorite thing about Miller...even as the best player on the Memphis team last year and this year he still asked his coaches if he could play on kick coverage teams...that is the type of insane competitor you want on your team.

He is an animal.

You will be hard pressed to find a bigger 5'11" 200lbs bad *** out there,

Watching more of Miller it is easy to see why he makes some easy drops and has some ball security issues...nothing to do with his hands which are actually very good...concentration is good as well...it's all about the fact at times he tries to do to much...he is trying to make a move before securing the ball or trying to cut back one to many times on screens and gets caught out...you never want to take away that playmaking ability but he just needs to learn when the play is over in the NFL it is over.

He reminds me of a bigger Steve Smith.

He is just an angry dude. Listen to him in interviews he is an angry dude. He has a list of people who have disrespected him at all times.

Great read, excited to see him and Mitch mature together as players. Sky is the limit.

But go back and look at the SMU game. He went and blocked a kid from the 5-yard line all the way through the end zone and into the camera people. And the official came to our sideline. “Coach, you can’t block anybody that far. He has to stop.”

Me as coach:

Yes sir.

(Ref walks away)

Do it again Anthony.  Don't ever stop.  Block through the echo of the whistle. Great freakin job.  To the cooler!!!

----------

I coached for years.  Nothing in football drives people more nuts than players who never stop blocking them until play is over no matter how far from ball.  Nothing.  Just makes them crazy and totally puts them off their game.  Can win the game for you more often than not.  Defenders will often start fights out of frustration.   

We would do a great drill where we had 3 blockers on 3 defenders trying to get to an object, usually a tennis ball sitting on a large traffic cone or a stand up dummy or an upside down garbage can.

There would be two winners in the drill.  The first defender to his object and the last blocker whose defender didn't make it.   They got points for each.  More points for the blocking because its harder and as blocker you got to stay on for next rep while everyone else rotated.   Really got kids motivated to block forever.

Its hard to get kids motivated to block.  Nobody wants to be a blocker and none of the parents want their kids to be blockers.  That echos through the levels.  Football people understand its importance though.

WRs who love to block are football porn.
