QB - Barrett - Burrow

This was not the no-brainer for me it probably is for most fans. 

Agree here Phi. JT probably will end up the QB,  but there does need to be serious evaluation. He had trouble passing this year, but he also has trouble passing when he had Thomas and Marshall in 2015. There are legit questions surrounding whether he can attack the middle part of the field with accuracy. His deep ball is never going to be a strength so his accuracy in the 10-20 yard range needs to pick up. Burrow is going into his 3rd year, if he is really flashing  then let him take a stab at the job in practice. JT will probably be the starter, but make him earn it like never before. Hardcore competition makes everyone better.

+1. I didn't know who he was, but saw him on Conan a couple months ago and he was pretty damn funny. Like how he literally will say anything that pops into his head without considering how some people may feel about his comments.

This will end up the same way, but at least we are taking a swing at him. One day we will get one of these five star space eaters and there will be much rejoicing. Just hope it is sooner rather than later because my patience is growing thin. What a luxury it was to have Big Hank.

Agree with DJ that Fuller will play regardless of Webb being in his spot right now. His film shows a safety with range that is deadly on returns when he gets a pick. There won't be another Hooker, but Fuller still has the talent to be an All American. People forget how truly desperate Harbaugh was for this guy. He is a game changer and Meyer gave him Shaun Wade level attention last cycle for a reason. I will be stunned if this no nonsense player isn't starting next year.

It's just a playful tease. Nothing sinister. He is just enjoying the process and building suspense for his announcement. Everything is trending LSU so maybe he wants to keep us feeling like we still have a chance. At the end of the day though I would say our chance of landing him is closer to 10%. It's a long shot.

Comment 18 Jan 2017

It was a trainwreck because Matt Ryan had great difficulty in learning the offense in year one. The offensive line was also terrible. You aren't giving Kyle enough credit. Dan Quinn is not an offensive minded coach so I'm not sure why you would credit him for that side of the ball. You can argue Kyle won't be good running the entire ship, but just don't suggest he hasn't been a great coordinator. I agree that Kyle may have a rough time in SF, but it won't be because he doesn't understand offense. 

Comment 17 Jan 2017

It's because he has carried us all year. Falcons defense is literally one of the worst in the league so that tells you how much Kyle has had on his shoulders. Even when Julio Jones and other key players are out he still finds a way to run up the points. It is a great hire, but I feel for him. Kap is not Matt Ryan. 

Comment 17 Jan 2017

Are you insane? Did you watch the Falcons this year?  Statistically, they have the 4th best offense in NFL history. You clearly don't remember what the Falcons offfense looked like before Kyle arrived. They were almost dead last in rushing and Ryan was getting sacked more than anyone in the game. 13 different Falcons have a receiving TD this year. 4 Falcons on offense made the Pro Bowl. This all goes back to Kyle. 

Comment 17 Jan 2017

Only one on the list that is realistic is Fleck. If he succeeds at Minn then he will absolutely be a hot hire in 2-3 years. As a former OSU grad assistant he will absolutely be on our radar when Meyer leaves. Fickell  is an obvious omission on OPs list. We shouldn't dismiss he alll because he struggled in his one interim  year. He was put in a horrible situation on the fly and the program was in absolute turmoil. Like Fleck, if he succeeds at Cincy he will be on our radar. He will be on the radar even more if he leads teams with good offenses. We know Cincy will have a good defense with him at the helm, but how he implements the spread willl be more interesting.

I laughed so it must be a joke 

Comment 11 Jan 2017

Haven't watched much. I used to watch them all the time, but recently it has become a painful experience. The silly turnovers in particular drive one mad. I'm a huge Matta defender, but even my patience is starting to wear thin. The roster isn't great, but there is enough experienced talent to make the tournament as 9 or 10 seed. If we miss the tournament again I think it will be time to say that the 2017-2018 season will be his hot seat year. 

Comment 11 Jan 2017

No Shit was literally my first reaction as well. I have had people that know almost nothing about football tell me as much after watching OSU. You know it's bad when even your in-laws tell you Ohio State looks like a high school offense. Really looking forward to Kevin Wilson. 

Comment 11 Jan 2017

Absolutely fair game that whatever went down at Indiana be discussed. However, as OC he isn't going to be making the personnel decisions. He isn't going to be in a position to decide how injuries are handled. Also, he is probably aware that Urban is going to have his eye on how he treats players that are injured. If OSU has no vetted him then I have no reservations with being the OC. I might have reservations with him as a HC, but we just want him for play calling. I understand the reservations of some fans, but after he puts up 40 on PSU I think most will be willing to move on.  

Comment 10 Jan 2017

Something has to be up. Even if Dixon leaves we have KJ Hill, Campbell, Mclaurin, Victor, Mack, Grimes, Lindsey, and James Clark. Wondering if maybe Clark and one of Campbell or Mclaurin is transferring? This move doesn't make a ton of sense given assumed depth at WR and nobody really behind Worley at walkout LB.
