Decisions on cutting players have as much to do about their contracts and signing bonuses. You don’t cut a rookie that got a $three.eightnine million signing bonus. He was drafted in the second  round so the saints have a pretty substantial investment. Like any rookie his performances have been up and down. The Vikings only needed a FG and have a very good kicker, so I don’t think a prevent D with DB’s is the way to go on that play. I do think you double Diggs in that spot at least.

Nebraska was really bad last year. Especially the 2nd half of the season. Yet Frost I think will have them much improved. Not enough to beat ttun but they will lose more respectable than in 2017 where their defense gave up a lot points. 50+ four times, 40+ twice and 30+ twice. If Patterson isn’t eligible I could see them losing five easy.

Billy Price and Jamarco Jones would be my picks. We have some really talented 2nd year guys that should contribute and even be upgrades from the previous starters like Wyat Davis, Meyers and Munford. We may have Taylor/Burrell @ Center, Davis @ RG. Munford/Pridgeon @RT, Prince/Alabi @ LT with Jordan @ LG. Had a lot of OL that just didn’t pan out unfortunately.

Shawn, that’s actually them throwing up the white flag, lol. Instead “who has it better than us” it’s “we can’t have nice things”.

Comment 10 Jan 2018

I really don’t think Meyer would give a guy a 5th year if he didn’t think the player would give his team the best chance to win. I’m just surprised he didn’t give a series or two to the back up to prepare for 2018.

 Well Beck as we know left town, the OL improved and we had a new offensive coordinator. Yet we still couldn’t throw downfield consistently. I have zero doubts that Haskins or a healthy Joe Burrow could have lead us to a 12-2 season.

For one he’s got a full season of experience as the back up in the regular season and a month of bowl practice under his belt. Not like he had zero experience. What I said was they prepared him to come in relief if needed. All the younger guys get more reps than normal in the bowl practices. they got him as game as he could be. And it worked, didn’t it?

DJ, Considering JT just had surgery 6 days before the BCG and started I think is your answer. I wouldn’t say I was shocked that JT started but I was shocked we didn’t see Haskins at all. I think people are making way too much about Saban pulling Hurts at the half. In that I think they had been preparing for this exact same scenario since the Auburn loss. I just don’t think any coach does that in a championship game without preparation especially a coach like Saban.But if you have a better passer on the sideline why not? Yea he’s 25-2 but he isn’t the greatest passer. Georgia D showed Saban that they could stack the box and cover the receivers good enough to shut them out for a half. It was still  a ballsy move but I just don’t think Saban would go to a back up in that situation unless they worked on it. No one on sideline seemed shocked especially Hurts.
