I was a "hardcore" Ron guy.... I'm pretty neutral right now. I don't put much on him in terms of what talent we have b/c I think his hands are tied and that really is all DG... but I do now question how he sorts through what he is given. I think this will be an interesting year for Ron. He most certainly IMO will be forced with needing to make some clear adjustments when we start the season.....will he be Ron for 8 weeks before we see the standard late surge.
We are discussing obviously which outdated stank beer tastes better....so yeah, neither actually tastes good. I get that. Neither will be something likely anyone else wants to take a sip of. I do find it odd that Boykin really is the only one of that mix of guys that actually showed some flash in a game (preseason game 3) and then got buried from an opportunity the following week so Philly could have his epic choke show continue. I'd be curious if any player in the NFL saw more reps than Philly in preseason game 3. Just seemed like an odd coaching move if you really wanted to get a look at that little cluster of talent. None of it likely matters as those guys generally in terms of playing WR make up the "we are getting blown out so let's throw these guys out there in 4 WR looks dudes"....
I went and edited that post....sarcasm and posts don't mix well. but it is sad that Ron's "coaching" improvements have largely been things where he was forced to remove his blinders. Sarcastically addressing that likely was not the best call.
dude, I wasn't being serious... just agreeing that Ron definitely has put the blinders on with certain players.....and we saw significant improvement when he was forced by injury to make the obvious moves.
I heard Cam use to love Jimmy Clausen....didn't mean Cam thought he had game. 1 target, 8 yards.....that is what Bersin did in our wins. Outside of that he was the poster boy for comically putting someone on the field that didn't belong in the NFL (special teams) or a guy that got some cheap yards while we were losing and teams were giving up routes/short passes.
people play that game every year.... there are 32 teams each carrying 60 plus players right now....there are tons of players that could be had AT A COST better than the likes of Bersin. All depends on if you are willing to pay. I say it is worth overpaying for someone and taking on more than you would like in that particular player......b/c big picture it is about Cam and things are setting up for him to get hurt. No WRs plus a stacked box = no traditional offense which means Cam will be forced to be the video game guy to generate anything
you could note that as of today, Gettlemen hasn't shown what his ability is to draft offensive talent outside of hitting on what the first round has to offer.... bc he hasn't really brought any in that we know works... something to watch going forward...
what NFL team drafts a 2nd round WR and thinks his rookie year he is a legit starting 2? I mean your scenario isn't what has actually occurred issue is our WR corp has been comical for years. Take out the #1 for most teams and suddenly they don't have the dumpster fire we do.... also I'll throw this out...a year off of football could be very bad for KB. Gotta keep that in mind for at least the 2016-2017 season
