    Pitts isn’t a TE really. He is just a big WR. He can’t block.

    I think me and you discussed this before lol. It’s a weakness but it’s not a deficiency to where he is straight up incapable of blocking. I’m not expecting him to be a Toilolo in that regard.

    Team sources say Pitts is not a good blocker, but he is not bad and willingly contributes. Pitts fights and gives a good effort. Not having the desire to block is a common issue for receiving tight ends, but Pitts does not fall into the trap. While he is not a forceful blocker, Pitts is actually tries and does not take plays off.”

    The Saints defense had two 8+ sack games against Matt Ryan the last 2 seasons. I would imagine Terry Fontenont coming from the Saints organization probably is under the impression our offensive line is a problem. Watching the Bucs d line in the super bowl will only reenforce the importance of fixing our offensive line. Not to mention Arthur Smith is a former offensive lineman and understands the importance of a good offensive line. 

    I said if Sewell isn’t available I would take Pitts but if Sewell is there? You take him. I just hope the Dolphins don’t fall in love with him because I see them either taking him or a WR.

    I would be interested to see how well Tom Brady would do with Dirk Koetter as offensive coordinator. He might make Dirk Koetter look like a genius but who knows.

    He would cuss Dirk out everyday lol and Tom would tell HIM how to formulate the game plan. Dirk would straight up have to scrap 40% of his playbook. Tom is an alpha dog and him bringing a Super Bowl to Tampa his first year tells you his winning mentality separates him.

  4. I've spoken about this 100 times so I won't go in depth.

     

    Matt needs to stop being an extension of the coach and make the coach an extension of him. Yes we can win with Matt Ryan but this has always been a team game; Get the surrounding pieces so we won't need Matt to perform at MVP level to win. Tom Brady had some piss poor performances this season but when they gave him the keys he made sure he won when it mattered.

     

    That is all.

  5. Man, seeing this again is deeply saddening because my mother passed away last August from Frontal Lobe Dementia. They placed her on Hospice at the beginning of last year and only gave her a week or two to live but she made it all the way to 8 months and hospice was amazed/puzzled  at how long she held on. Man this has me in tears because I’m thinking maybe the family didn’t expect him to leave this quickly but my condolences to his family and loved ones because it’s painful seeing someone you care about go thru this illness.

    Doesn't mean he was a bad blocker, regardless of how much effort you feel he's putting in. But for what it's worth Hooper's never had an effort issue. 4 plays over the course of his whole career doesn't change that. And I'm always the guy who writes a player off if they don't give good effort. It's why I never wanted Vic.

    It’s still subjective tho. If he misses a block and he tried to keep someone in front? This isn’t even an issue. If you feel he was adequate, that is fine. But I’m not invalidating your opinion. I felt he was a garbage blocker due to lack of effort on plays. I know where you stand so I won’t go against it.

    I mean, I guess we have to agree to disagree because it’s subjective at the end of the day. You think he was adequate enough and that’s fine. I thought he displayed more of a passion for receiving than blocking. Either way he’s gone now.

    So he missed a couple blocks and now you're assuming those handful of plays was what he did always. You know how highlights are horrible to judge a player on? So are lowlights. 

    Consistency in effort always mattered to me. It’s always 3-4 plays that decide a game and as we learned this past season, the margin of error is thin. Jimmy Graham was a phenomenal TE early in his career but his lack of passion for blocking lead to Saints letting him go. There were plays where Hooper let defenders go RIGHT ACROSS him. If he tried? I wouldn’t even be having this conversation because effort does matter but dude looked straight up disinterested on those plays. I’m not looking for perfection I’m looking for effort and Hooper didn’t bring it every play. I saw that clip and it turned me off of him TBH.

  9. Difference between Hayden Hurst and Kyle Pitts is route tree ability...

    Have you ever seen a TE go in and out his breaks like a WR?

    Have you ever thought about what would happen if a LB was covering Calvin or Julio how quick they would be able to separate from them?

    Have you thought about how much stress and pressure that would put on opposing safeties? Leaving our outside WR one-on-one with DB’s?

    Pitts could, maybe, revolutionize the TE position in this aspect. I don’t think there has ever, with the exception of Darren Waller recently, that has been able to get in and out of breaks like a WR. That is just devastating for most LB’s. It is absolutely not out the question for us to draft him.

    Edit: Pitts being explosive in and out of cuts would give him the ability to run a route tree as diverse as Julio’s... He’s already a better blocker than Austin Hooper lmao and is also a better athlete lol.

    that should have been one of the most famous catches in the history of the SuperBowl - but now it is just a footnote in the worst blown lead in all of history of American sport.

    I’m getting emotional just reading responses like this. I haven’t watched anything related to that game since... 

    I’m going to take a break from the board for a few mins.

    Actually, I think in Arthur Smith's offense, tight ends are going to have a big role. I could see him wanting more than just Hurst. It'd be like addition, not replacing. 

    This type of offense would suit Matt better. We need to stop treating him like he’s Aaron Rodgers and run more two TE sets where we have a better passing/running threat at the line.

    Safety

    Running back

    Edge rusher /corner 

    Lg /center

     

    Like ai always bday regarding the draft...if we shore up  the major things in FA...like safety then that gives us more flexibility to take a guy like Pitts.

    But we gotta hit FA hard and fill the holes.

     

     

    That's what she said.

     

     

    I said I would be more than ok with Surtain but ONLY if the GM feels like he can be an ELITE #2 CB... If so then it would certainly help our 3-4 looks AND safety play as well.

    Exactly. I been following him since he was a kid. A friend of mine coached him and said he is the new style beefed up WR tight end. He is a willing blocker though. Strong. But his real value is you have to cover him with a corner. a good corner who can cover. Most LBs and Ss will be outmatched. He going to be faster than most receivers. He is 6'6 and can catch. Some teams may want to flex him out. If David Boston can be a WR, then Kyle sure can.

    But its a chess match. I think someone said he is like Kelce. Blocking is probably the only thing he isnt Elite in but he is willing and gets his nose in there.

    I am not a Florida fan so i have only seen him one the SEC features on Saturdays. But i am from philly so i know people who worked with him thru high school where he was a man among boys.

    Man that David Boston comparison is something serious. He had that one year where he straight beasted. Kyle is a jump ball grizzly in the mold of a CJ.

    I've asked for examples of teams that draft pure bpa multiple times...I never get an answer.

    It’s because BPA is Subjective unless there is a clear cut generational player. Houston had JJ Watt but still took Clowney. Detroit had Roy Williams but still took Calvin Johnson. Redskins had Sean Taylor but still drafted Laron Landry. ****, we had Julio Jones and a terrible defense and drafted Calvin Ridley. But all scouts have different opinions so not too many prospects are universal except the ones I mentioned.

    If they were to go BPA it's unlikely Pitts would be the player at top of the list of who all could be available at #4

    From everything that I’ve seen and read, if people are being %100 honest and not adding positional value? He’s the number 2 prospect in the draft. He’s just a TE, which isn’t the most dire position on the field; It’s a luxury position. But this dude has the skill set to be a lock to succeed at the next level.

  17. This is where I'm at with PS2...

    Will he be an elite #2 CB? And how important will that role be with our new defense/DC?

    If he'll be a elite 2 CB, I would be more than ok taking him at 4. He is not a slot DB at all; Doesn't have the hips and speed to play inside, but he can lockdown the right side that will get our 3-4 looks off to a good start.
