  1. Seriously dude you are coming across a little unhinged recently. Everything ok?
  2. I've said it before, but to me he isn't a traditional off-ball linebacker. He's an extremely gifted player but I don't think he's someone you want to routinely drop back in coverage. He's much better in and around the box and is an explosive pass rusher. I'd be looking to use him more in a Khalil Mack type role. If you ask him to play in a role similar to Debo then you're not putting him in the best situations to succeed.
  3. He's a good player but too early. Unless he really goes off this year he's a late 1st/early 2nd for me.
  4. Let's not make the same mistake as last year in thinking we can run it back with the same coaches (Morris instead of Quinn in this instance). Dirk needs to go at the end of the season, his fate should already be sealed.
  5. I don't think this is a result of scheme change or philosophy but rather matching up with the personnel groupings rolled out by the Vikings. They run out of 12 & 21 personnel groupings as much as anyone. If we were playing the Rams or Chiefs we'd be back to 2 linebackers.
  6. So in summary Morris isn't making any changes to the defense but we are shaking things up offensively and on special teams. The truth is we've been horrible everywhere, but the defense has been historically bad and Morris needs to own that.
  7. I'm not seeing the zip at all here. I'm not convinced by his arm at all with what I've seen so far.
  8. This is pointless and typical 1970 revisionist history... The Falcons were a young ascending team coming off a super bowl loss, the 49ers were coming off a 2-14 season.
  9. A bit like Mike McDaniel has been with Kyle Shanahan or Mike Shanahan for all but 1 year of his coaching career. He's the dude I want.
  10. I want them to view the Saints as they view any other team... The enemy that must be beaten into submission. Strike first, strike hard, no mercy.
  11. Wasn't Matt Lafleur an OC for just 1 season before becoming a head coach? Zac Taylor was a QB coach with the Rams prior to becoming a HC.
  12. I think he could do anything from here. Could see him as a HC or DC in the NFL. I think he could do very well as a college HC.
  13. The other thing is McKay and Webster are going to be leading the effort in getting the draft board together this year and regardless of who comes in as a GM, they're going to be involved in our draft process.
  14. This is Mckay's master plan for total control. Seriously we need to clean house of all these ex GM's in the building.
  15. McDaniel or McDaniels? Lots getting Mike (McDaniel) and Josh (McDaniels) mixed up right now. Yes to Mike, no to Josh.
  16. But the GM having no voice in the HC recruitment process? I'd be far more worried about having a GM and HC that aren't on the same wave.
  17. The same principle should also apply to the FO, but unfortunately any new GM won't get a say on the HC and will have to report in to a board of ex GM's chaired by McKay.
  18. I think we overrated our coaches ability to put players in positions to succeed. There is enough talent on this roster to make the playoffs. Can you not imagine Shanahan with this offensive personnel making us a contender?
  19. But Dave on twitter says we should keep him. Now I'm really confused... 😂
