  1. I had written a whole analysis on this subject but lost in on clicking a link I'd suggest you read up on our linebacker core, specifically Deion Jones. He is arguably the top cover LB in the NFL, with a lot of (deserved) freedom. Peter King did a good video on his ability to recognize plays and react instantly. He will probably be charged with covering Cook out of the backfield. Our second linebacker, Campbell, excels at covering TE's while our third linebacker, Foye Oluokun, was a big bright spot on our defense last year. Big, smart, and unreasonably fast for a man of his size. This makes for arguably the top cover LB core in the NFL. We do have one weakness and one big question mark regarding our front 7: They are not stout against big, overpowering offensive lines. We rely on speed and athleticism. Cook is a great RB, but he will have a lot of work to do in the backfield if that isn't your OL profile. Our pass rush is a question mark. We have the talent to be very disruptive, especially from the DT spots with Jarrett and Crawford. Our DEs have been lights out this preseason, so they may finally be what we expected when we drafted them. We don't know yet.. Our secondary is stout (CB1, FS, SS, NB) and all mentioned are probowl caliber. Our CB2 is a relative unknown to us. 2nd round pick last year, flashed but also had his issues as a rookie. Our defense is built essentially to force opposing offenses to earn every yard. We won't let you go down field, and will force you to convert on 3rd down all the way to the end zone. If you are in a 3rd and long situation, watch out (in particular, Kazee our NB is a ball hawk) ... Our offense is a known quantity except for our rookie right side. I won't get into details there, but Matt Ryan is definitely elite. If our investments in the OL pan out like it did for the Colts last year, it is (definitely) the best offense in the NFL. Here's to a great game! It is one of the better match-ups of the week
  2. dang jedi, -198? Who did u piss off? lol

  3. thanks for the breakdown, much appreciated!
  4. He also was considered to have the NFL 'intangibles' that are so hard to find. The knocks on him were that he didn't have the strongest arm (improving), lack of accuracy, decision making. Not sure about his footwork, but if Musgrave corrected it, that already improves two of the above. We'll see about his decision making soon enough.
  5. I was convinced JPW would become our eventually #2 even last year. Would like to see him tear up the preseason for the next 2 seasons. He has the tools to become a good QB and maybe our next Matt Schaub.
  6. This is totse material. Theres just one thing missing: Step 1: Drug her Step 2: Rape Step 3: ????? Step 4: PROFIT!!!
