    Hunter Henry just blew out his ACL

    Seriously, let’s see how the do this year. People seem to forget that Butler got an illegal hit in preseason and we were worried he might miss the season. He got lucky and missed one game but it’s not surprising that he didn’t play as much as intended. Williams and Funchess were worthless as you said at this point last year.
  2. There’s no question it was a bad pick. I just think he’s got way more potential than Hackenberg who looked terrible when he was done at PSU.
  3. Agree completely. Allen isn’t who I would have taken but Hackenberg fell off a cliff and got worse every year even with way more talent around him.
  4. That video may be the lamest highlight I’ve ever seen. I like Moore and can’t wait to see him live but that was not exciting.
  5. Allen may bust but he’s a far better prospect than Hackenberg. Not even close IMHO whether you like Allen or not.
  6. He’s always been solid as a receiver. It’s going to be great knowing both RBs have to be accounted for as runners and receivers on every play. With Stewart and Shula, LBers could blitz or drop in coverage and not worry about any consequences.

    Curtis Samuel ....

    Wouldn’t be surprised to see him get playing time elsewhere if we release him. Would suck to see that happen. He was 100% our second best guy behind Funchess after the KB trade. Samuel looked OK but had some bad moments and the others looked awful. Byrd looked good when healthy, really needed him in the playoffs.

    A Gettleman legacy

    Umm, Gettleman was fired before Norwell even played his last year. I still find it funny that Gettleman somehow doesn’t get credit for getting Turner, Norwell and Williams with only 1 3rd and 1 4th. Plenty of problems but unearthing some gem OLineman wasn’t one of them.
  9. Agreed. Amini is truly bad. We watched him play last year. Giving him reps is truly a waste of those reps.
  10. Yes, he, Moton and Amini (why Ron, why?) got first team LG reps and Larsen also got 1st team C reps.
  11. No, just a bunch of whiners who want it closer to them. I've been there before and it's easy to get to and easy to park, etc. Outside of this board, I'd bet most people who go there don't know JR's connection and don't care. Hey, it'll be better for their families. Why? Driving another 1 hour or 1.5 hours? If they move it to another facility or build a new one, all that's going to happen is fans will get less access to players. Look at all the new MLB stadiums or spring training stadiums, there's player parking and exits to get out easier and all the places for easier autograph access go away. Right now, there's a funnel where players have to walk or take a cart by all the fans. Some stop, some don't, but they still all go by you.

    Our projected LG from NFL.com

    Not sure that was a good observation. I don’t see it as a lack of fire as much as being respectful of the vets. LG is 100% open and RR has said it’s open. I don’t see it as Moton thinking he can’t be a starting tackle or not wanting to play hard to replace Kalil or Williams in 2019. Just because he isn’t saying he thinks he should replace speed bump doesn’t mean he doesn’t want to but that maybe he doesn’t want to do that through the press.

    Our projected LG from NFL.com

    Maybe. He’s going to be 35 in July and already retired before wanting to unretire. Also, if Moton can handle it let's get him on the field.
  14. That’s my bet too. The key point you made was injuries. That’s the biggest issue. We’ve got a lot of new blood coming in and we only really lost Norwell. Poe and a healthy/more experienced Butler more than make up for Star and we bolstered the WRs more than enough to make up for KB. Anyone else lost was either bad last year or not significant enough. Health will make the biggest difference IMHO. If new and newish guys like Moore, Jackson, Hall, Elder, Moton and others really contribute then we could be really solid.

    Marty impressed with new guard

    Understood, but sometimes a GM (Gettleman or Hurney) has to fight for some players with a stubborn coach who for some unknown reason thinks that announcing Amini is in the lead is better than saying it's an open competition. Smaller problem with the former is that some younger guys may not fight as hard thinking that they can't displace the vet this year. That would be a red flag, but the bigger problem is that the former also means Amini starts with first team reps. Make it an open competition and give everyone reps until they show they clearly aren't in the hunt. Hurney promoting Mahon could be as much internal as external. That said, I may be giving way too much credit to him.
