xskyx Posted November 24, 2015 Share Posted November 24, 2015 New everything. New coaching staff from top to bottom (except Armstrong, Cox and a few other minors), new scheme on both sides of the ball.. New lineups. This team has so many new starters everywhere in a new system.. Yet everyone expects playoffs and superbowl. I see a team that exceeded expectations in the first 5 games, and has recently shown a new team in a mini-rebuild.Matty hasn't regressed. He's in a system that he hasn't ran since college. Some of the picks he has thrown have been head scratchers and some of the throws have been pretty off. I have no excuse for that, but I believe it WILL get much better next season when he settles into the system and everyone is more comfortable. He's our QB for years to come. Deal with it. Many of you will eat crow and will jump back on ship quickly when he settles.The o line needs some draft picks invested. Center especially. They have been servicable and exceeded expectations for a group thrown together in 1 offseason. Certainly a pleasant surprise..Rb.. Freeman blew everyone's minds. If he can stay healthy- we have a great RB for the next several years. Coleman.. I honestly don't know. More touches will tell, but so far he has a lot of issues. Fumbles are waaaay too frequent obviously. Ward has been a mediocre surprise. He isn't great but definitely fills his role. Dimarco is a beast. Pro bowl level. Who saw that?!TE.. Tamme is a nice stop gap. Consistent for short passes. Toilolo I can't comment on as I haven't watched his play closely.DLine has been much better than last year. Vic is taking his lumps and has graded positively for the most part. He's learning. Soliai seems to get a lot of penalties but has excelled in helping stop the run. Hageman doesn't stand out to me this year sadly...LB play has surprised me. Worrilow and Durant have earned their keep. Kroy has shut me up. Plain and simple. Reed has been a non factor thus far to me.. Seemed we played better without him. Schofield has exceeded his pay.Secondary I haven't watched much so can't comment. I'm proud of our FS though. Kid has outplayed his draft status by far in a foreign position. Collins has a lot to learn. Tru is Tru.Matt Bryant has made me a saaad panda. Missing what is usually money for him. Bosher is Bosher. Better be a Falcon for LIFE.Hester has done great holding the IR down. The IR needed that veteran presence.Edit; forgot WR. Haven't been pleased with WR play outside Julio. Roddy looks old. Hank looks like butterfingers. Hardy is hardly noticeable. Who would have thought this group would look least impressive?With all that said, relax guys. Next season will tell all. I expect late playoffs then. Not now. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
