Hooper was the best available TE and allows them to run two TE sets. He catches 93% of catchable passes and 60% of contested passes. Which makes him reliable in the passing game, not sure why we take away stats he still has to contend with Ridley and Jones for targets. Should we discredit Kittles stats because his WRs were garbage and that’s the only reason why he was the leading receiver for the 9ers?
Would have been nice to have that Zeitler trade back. Draft a stud LT at 10 with Bitonio, Tretter, Zeitler & Conklin and you have little to no pass protection issues. My projection is Draft a LT, S, DL, OG, LB, WR. Sign a S and LB in F/A
Disagree, the NFL does very little to develop QBs if you’re not remotely NFL ready you’re gone in a couple years. Hopefully Jones can improve his game and get another look. Mayfield needs to not be on his 4th HC & OC in 2yrs.
We already know outside of Clemson the rest of the ACC is terrible. The point was outside of ND they could again play one total ranked team the whole season. Playing 10 bad teams and playing a FCS team in November should be heavily criticized. Why schedule quality non conference opponents if at the end SoS takes a back seat to being undefeated.
Can you list the nonsense, besides wearing a 100k watch and having to change his shoes at halftime? The guy played a full season injured, well liked by his teammates, no blow ups or altercations on the sideline. So for some reason you’re greatly exaggerating this team “cancer” stigma. Is he a diva? Sure, but as are most players in the NFL that are good. It’s also a security guard that inserted himself in a celebration, doesn’t excuse OBJ. But don’t be a douche and harass players who for many of them will never be in a bigger game or make the NFL in their life. The security guard should have took that to a member of the coaching staff to handle.
In order to be better you have to be able to play. I know that Mayfield can succeed because you saw his ability his rookie season, a terrible scheme, OL and coach took all that away. Sorry, but Wentz is not durable enough to merit a great QB.
He has Hunt as well. 10-6
Zimmer had final say on plays and was committed to the run
Yeah, and the risks on questionable characters did Dorsey in.
He’s a west coast guy that will benefit strengths of the QB. Way too early to say it is wrong
Did you know who was Saleh was before John Lynch stacked his DL with 4 first round D lineman? The Vikings did just come off of a improbable win against the saints. I don’t know what Stefanski is, but I don’t know enough to say it’s a bad move.
They are, but they were without, Theilein, and Cook several games so that affected some statistics. NFC north is stout outside of Detroit.
And word was McDaniels was going the be hired, I wouldn’t believe everything you read on the internet.
Why not just support him, I don’t believe his intentions as a coach is to fail. I like he likes the west coast offense, got the Vikings to hire Kubiak to implement it. The biggest knock on kitchens was he didn’t give up play calling. Let’s see if he’s going to call plays or manage games.
I think Rivera and the Skins were negotiating since he and Gruden were fired, it’s hard to tell what this will turn into with Stefanski, From what I usually read is that Browns fans can call a better game than kitchens, is there a reason why stefanski can’t do it? Give him an OL and a go couple of pieces on D, is there a reason why he can’t?
They did let Dorsey make a lot of roster moves that made the team better on paper. I’m pretty sure the analytics say fix the OL. I’m not a fan of letting Dorsey go because he did the best job, but he’s also on the hook for the hiring of saying Kitchens was the best choice, not fixing the OL and bringing in players with questionable backgrounds. It works when you win, when you lose and the team is dysfunctional that’s also on Dorsey.
Has Carson Wentz played a full season without getting hurt though? That was his knock in college too. I believe they were in on Goff and he was taken. A franchise QB also has to prove he can play a full season as well right? He’s not a bad QB but his durability is questionable
The Niners DC that has 4 first round draft picks on the DL? Nobody was talking about how great he was until this season when they were 10-22 while he was the DC. How bout Lynch is a great GM?
Why would you assume technique is not being taught? If it was the technique you’d see more targeting calls against OSU all season. I’d call it more accidental looking worse with Lawrence dropping his head into it, the Clemson hit on JK when he got hurt was more intentional.
You’re working 36 glory holes tomorrow? You do need your rest. No conspiracy, but if you believe it wasn’t a catch and a fumble then you’re pretty fucking dumb and don’t know much about football. Have fun with the truckers skeeter.
I don’t think there’s a conspiracy, I just believe that we had highly incompetent officiating on both the field and the booth.
But thats not exactly true to say espn has nothing to gain. They operate both the ACC/SEC networks. Outside of Clemson the ACC is garbage, outside of 2-3 teams the rest of the SEC is average to garbage.
Clemson plays no one all year so it does benefit ESPN to prop them up with their weak schedule to add some value to their ACC network.
I hope I don’t need to explain their love for the SEC.
To assume they wouldn’t love to see LSU and Joe Burrow knock off Clemson and their 29 game winning Is not compelling TV is wrong. Keep in mind a lot of people watch OSU for them to lose. A lot will watch to see if LSU can knock off the defending champ.
This matchup builds ESPNs conference network which is more valuable than one game.
You’re argument is completely irrelevant if the correct call had stood. The FGs and fouls happened so stop with the minimizing of a horrendous call that in a 6 point loss cost a team 7 points. A great individual defensive play that resulted in a TD was taken away. You’re the type of dumb fuck that would turn around and say if we failed converting on 4th down to try and make argument.
2019: anyone with some knowledge of football would agree that the scoop and score reversal is probably one of the worst calls in the history of sports.
Pretty sure they have that, I remember watching a bowl game last season where the DB destroyed the WR for a targeting call. They upheld the call and reviewed the film and let the player stay. Unless they changed the rules, I believe it can be called w/out the ejection.
I was always under the impression that the targeting had to be with "malice," for it to be an ejection. The OU/LSU game had evidence of that. Wade's hit was not remotely close to what occurred in that game. If you were to call roughing it would be one thing, the ejection was extreme IMO.
