    Good point, but even if this was remotely part of the overall  problem, it's still imperative that the coaches recognize that they aren't picking it up & thus, they need to stop what they're doing, work on the task at hand until they have a grasp of it, then move on.  Or, in more of a hopeless case, just move on from said player.  There are tons of people who don't pick up things right away.  Very smart people.  It takes them extra time to mentally grasp it for a number of reasons.  But when they get it, they are awesome at it.  Football is not different.  As long as the physical skills are there, it's the coaches duty to recognize all these things.

    The takes in this thread are the right takes. However, the honeymoon will end and we'll all imply AS isn't giving us any information of substance sooner as opposed to later. I give him until the first vague injury report comes out   Soon to follow will be fan discontent to a generic response he gives about how the team is preparing for the next opponent. 
    He is a coach. He is doing coach things in this interview. He will be doing coach things in three weeks and in three months. The only thing that will change is our tolerance for "coach speak." Our tolerance will probably be highly correlated to results in terms of wins and losses.

    Obviously we had to take Pitts at 4..coaching staff knows Ryan can't throw past 15-20 yards and a TE was the only viable answer.. If we drafted a guy that can take the top off a defense, he would have just ran down field past the secondary to just wait and have to run back to the moon ball Ryan throws.. No one can blame Julio for wanting to bounce

    this franchise has seen players wear the pants too much the past few years. Freeman, Takk and Beasley all did whatever they wanted over the franchise. Don't want to see another soft regime. They hold the cards.

    I remember being called delusional and in denial...I remember being called a Ryanite. I remember being accused of running an echo chamber here that only allowed Matt Ryan fans.

    The “yeah but he’s a Tight End” thing doesn’t wash with me.
    Moreover the Kelce’s and Kittle’s of the world would have been Top 5 picks had the scouting community really understood how good they were going to be.
    Elite Tight Ends are weapons now.
    85+ receptions 
    1,200+ yards
    9+ TDs
    is worthy of a Top 5 pick.

    Here's what NO ONE has said about Trey Lance.  IFFFFF we were to draft him and sit him 1/2 years behind Matt, that will mean this kid has sat out of meaningful games for 2/3 years with only 1 college season under his belt.  Thats a lot to ask from a young kid as they are to lead your franchise for 10+ years.

    I like how they say that it's extremely difficult to get rid of ryan before 2023, but then say to take a qb and let him sit for 2021. Well, what about 2022? Let him sit for two years? Sit 40 million on the bench? What's the answer there?

    Understandable. They just lost a crucial year of learning and progressing, including missing out on the on-the-field, game-day competition, which is definitely also a necessary ingredient to improvement.

    don l reacted to celtiksage in I get that most of the board wants a QB, so here's a name I suggest you do research on. To me? He's a first round talent that may be there in round 2.   
    Trask goes through his reads repeatedly in a single play, hits hella tight windows, quickest release I've seen, great play action passing. He also led the nation in TD passes behind Mac Jones (FL played one less game than Bama), over 68% completion rate, 2nd in passing yards...
    Yeah I just thought he sucked because I haven't seen him rated up there with the others, but after watching the game against UGA who he thrashed and seeing some other games, he looks pretty solid.
    And in all the videos I watched, half or more of his passes aren't going to just Pitts and Toney. I like him a lot in the 2nd. Although I wouldn't be surprised to see someone take him end of round 1.

    I just decided to go and watch the Bama and Georgia games (don't got all 22 so doing my best) and I will say I really do like him more then Fields and wouldn't be surprised to see Trask go in the 20s in the draft

    I swear I saw Brady too... He has the mindset that he wants to master his offense and he MASTERED Dan Mullins’ offense. I think in a stable organization he’s a star. I would love to have him on our squad IF we can get him.

    He looks better than Lance and as good as Mac Jones in that video. Of course it's a highlight video.
    Some things I noticed in the vid:
    1) he release is lightning speed, even on touch passes. I don't think you'll see his arm getting swatted at. He gets rid of it in a hurry.
    2) he didn't look like a statue and even had eyes in the back of his head on a couple plays where he sidestepped defenders coming from his blind side.
    3) size is your friend. I know. That's what she said.
    4) his eyes and head are all over the field. He sees everything even going through progressions and coming back to his first option, and he does it in rapid fire motion.
    5) he seems to have poise and toughness.
    6) I saw Brady. No it isn't a comparison to skill, but he sorta looks like TB when TB came out in that he doesn't have much muscle definition (at least in his arms). I'd have loved to seen him at the combine just to see if it's true.
    I haven't noticed these intangibles in the other QBs even watching their highlight videos. I'd gladly take him in the second.

    I could get behind a 6'5 240lb QB. Trask,in the 2nd is a helluva lot better than one at #4 overall. Especially if we trade out of the #4.
