Getting That Honey Badger Feeling Again.


Recommended Posts

Every off-season i review as many vids as I can find on almost all the candidates that would fill a need for us. highlights, full games and .VS vids I watch them all. Each year one guy just keeps jumping out at me. I watch him play and I'm locked to the video until it ends and then...I have to watch more. A few years back it was the Honey Badger. I raved about him as a 1st round talent and most laughed.

This year it's a big man who's providing the chills. Of the several talented DTs in this class Michael Bennett will be the one teams will regret not taking.

I like this Michael Bennett a lot. His problem is consistency. When he wants to play, he's unstoppable. Look at the Playoff games. When he's just out there, he's fairly pedestrian.

Check this out though:

One thing from that article that people here forget about most prospects is this:

It's cool to dominate against Arkansas Central State University, but it doesn't tell me nearly as much as seeing a guy kick *** against top competition.

You want to win big games, you find prospects that show up against NFL caliber talent in big games.

He is going to be a solid player for whoever gets him. If we go pass rusher at 8 and he is somehow there at 42 i'm all for it. Or if we trade back from 8 for some reason i'd love to come away with him and/or Eli Harold.

Yeah I think Eli Harold is a bit under looked. Would really be happy to trade back and grab him then maybe Xavier Cooper or Michael benefit in the following rounds.

"Getting that honey badger feeling again" meaning, getting the feeling that somebody'll come into the league, play well as a rookie, and then completely regress in their 2nd year? Because that's what we've seen from honey badger so far.

That was due to injuries lets see what he can do in his 3rd year

Dude! I respect your knowledge as much as anyone here and love many of your posts. However, you've trended from a positive, yet opinionated valuable poster to someone with about 90% posts just telling someone else how stupid they are. You Gripe about people not knowing their stuff and then post some half truth garbage like this conveniently excluding the pertinent details of TMs so called "regression". If this was posted on one of your threads you'd be pizzed and attack the person for not knowing what they are talking about. What's silly is I know you know. you just excluded the details to once again look superior and negative. Seriously man, I'm guessing the long off-season has you punchy or something but, try to put some sunshine back in your posts man. We've already got enough negative Nicks and don't need a good poster like you glooming up the boards like the trolls.

As Far as MB, Yes, he's a guy I believe walks into the league and looks like he was born to wreck havoc in the NFL. An DE or LB in the first is a good start but I hope we get someone like MB in the middle to continue the quest for a pass rush. Let's hope Quinn feels the same way

Are you saying consistency in regard to effort or end result? He looked like he has pretty consistent effort to me. Also, have you seen his inconsistency with your own eyes or did you read about it? Just curious, I don't trust a lot of the prospect write-ups on players. This time of year it seems like a lot of writers are just adding stuff in so all their write-ups don't sound the same.

Yeah, Eli is going to be a good one if he gets cast in the right scheme.
