  1. Jagz is an offensive line coach at heart, I think, not a QB coach. But I suppose it's not impossible, guys do sometimes move around.
  2. Nicholas has become a good starting LB. He's a very well rounded player. He can plug his gap, cover TEs and RBs, and can rush the passer when required. He's also a good character guy. He should be here for a while. Peterson is fine, and he's an important leader. Yes, we want to avoid having him matched up one-on-one in the flats vs Reggie Bush, but you can say that about a lot of LBs. He doesn't miss tackles, and does make impact plays. We need a young guy to develop to replace him after next year (although maybe Adkins can be that guy), but at the moment we have other, more important holes
  3. Owens and Houston were both pretty good yesterday (albeit that the TB offense is not a great challenge). Hill and DeCoud had the only major hiccups on pass coverage, both on that one drive. Apart from the two play, 80 yard drive, the D overall had a pretty good day. I think that Owens and Houston will have a decent chance of shackling Maclin and Avant. If Jackson plays, however, we may be in trouble.
  4. Being a GM is all about resource management. Spending a 1st rounder on a RB when that is arguably our strongest position would be ridiculous. A third rounder? Maybe. A fourth rounder? Sure, that would make sense, a 3rd down type back who falls for lack of size. But anything higher would be silly. Besides, without a new CBA Norwood will be back as an RFA on the cheap.
  5. Norwood's great, but in reality 3rd down RB / KR can be found for cheap in the 3rd or 4th round of every single draft. O-line is all about consistency and chemistry. It's crucial to keep that line together, especially the right side. Also, it sets bad precedent for them to be a huge part of our sucess and then refuse to pay them. I'd let Norwood go, especially as we'd get a 3rd or 4th round pick as compensation.
  6. Johnson will not be playing on many pass downs. We don't have a simplistic rotation like this, but this is probably the closest approximation: Run down: Anderson Babs/Jerry Lewis Davis Pass down: Sidbury/Biermann Babs/Anderson Jerry/Babs Abraham
  7. (a) he doesn't actually look quick at all. ( good blocking by the bucs downfield, fair enough. © he was playing against scrubs in the 3rd q of the second preseason game. Let's see whether he can throw the ball. I'm not worried about his scrambling.
  8. I could see definitely see us drafting someone for Gonzo to mentor, but: (a) I really expect Gonzo to play three years - he'll be having so much fun catching passes from Ryan, and we'll at least be in with a chance of winning a SB every season... I can only see him retiring after two years if he has already won a SB (b ) I think we need to draft D in the first. We have a pretty good group of TEs already, who can play their role. My option would be to draft a high ceiling project in the mid rounds and let Gonzo (and Mularkey) shape him into a star.
  9. This is a nothing story. They've just taken what Coach Smith said in his latest presser, and tried to twist it a little: Q. What are some of the keys in making a transition for a guy right in the heart of the defensive line? A. “I think the biggest thing is pad level. I think that you can get away when you’re playing in a college game with superior talent that play with higher pads. You have to play with your pad level down in this league or they are going to knock you out of your gap. I think the intensity in which a guy is playing with every down against an outstanding player. I think those
  10. really? what, you're looking for 3rd and 15? 3rd and 20?
  11. "Of the three teams I visited, the Falcons' easily featured the most strips, interceptions and pass deflections." Given the quality of our QB and receivers, that's really good (and surprising) news.
  12. The only interesting thing to come out of that game was the fact that the Panties' starting run D looked very shaky. However, they'll prob find a replacement for Kemo, and the Giants have one of the best run O's in football. Still, it raises hope that we'll be able to pound them on the ground...
