DQ Recaps OTAs 6/6/19

187 posts in this topic

Some key points:

-Impressed with Koetter's ability to game plan and attack a defense, especially in practice. 

-Likes what Hageman has shown so far but wants him to get in game shape.

-Impressed with Foye's football intelligence and know how. Foye sounds like a potential breakout candidate..

Foye is getting a lot of love from the coaches lately.

Sounds good....what about Beasley? DQ has put his job on the line for Vic and his 12.8m$ Payday. We’re getting ready to find what DQ make of....if Beasley flops again DQ looks like a draft homer. If Bs plays well with 8-10 sacks he looks like a genius. I’m pulling for both

Some good info in this piece.  My takeaways

- Foye is one of those glue players a great defensive unit has.  Hope he sees lots of reps.

- Pre-season games will be essential for Hageman.  The extra game is a gift for him

- Rico is more important to defensive success than we realize

- OTA’s do have tremendous value, especially for the young players or when a team fundamentally changes a schematic philosophy.  It’s no surprise OL play has gotten worse once the CBA stripped 5 weeks from the offseason schedule.  During these OTA’s Lindstrom went from backup to starter so good on him

Like @Falconsin2012 said he appears to be a glue player that holds the team together. He is as knowledgeable as Rico or close enough it appears that he has become a mentor. Looks like he will be starting alongside Debo and Campbell, with Duke Riling them up from the bench.

A “glue player that holds the team together” Man wth are y’all smoking here!? He’s a 2nd year player that’s got good reviews after OTAs . How does that in a sane world equate to being Rico 2.0? A proven player that has put in work & paid dues . You guys really need to chill with the “my favorite player” love fest . Sure he may start, sure he may produce .. I hope he does but this premature “crowning” shlt is ridiculous .

I am just going off what Quinn said.   Over these 4 weeks they have gotten a lot of good work in.  The team as a whole.  

I’m glad Quinn didn’t take the bait, though.

And players say different. You can find people arguing for both sides. Doesn't make it a fact.

Watch the video, he's mentoring rookies and even 2nd year players on how to watch film cut ups.

And that's awesome but not exactly "the glue that holds the team together".

A glue player.  Not the glue.  People like Foye & Crawford & Rico wont get the spotlight, but they are glue players.  Essential to any team.  Like Cornelius Bennett or Malloy’s impact on the Falcons during their tenures

A glue player is Matt Ryan, Debo or Alex Mack.

Those are star players not glue guys, glue guys are someone like Shane Battier that get everyone on the same page, do the dirty work, and help the team and coaches study film, get together, or answer questions etc..Rico Allen is the perfect glue guy on our team because the team loses its voice and cohesiveness when he is gone but he is not a star player. He was already considered a glue guy after his first year of starting because of his film study and playbook prowess.

No he hasn't. If Beasley under performs Quinn will keep his job.

Agree to disagree. 

The dirty work guys and glue guys to me are different.

Foye seems to be a quick learner and has an old head on young shoulders that’s what I take from DQs comments about him.

Thats what glue guys do make up for lack of athleticism size strength or other such mentioned things with football intelligence.

But Foye is one of the most athletic guys on the field?

for either side. I personally think they help the players in their first few seasons, after that the older players should be volunteering to be there, and should be with the team but in a 'mentor' capacity.
