Yea that homer flavor koolaid got people stupid...The Saints are going to have a good offense as per usual so they will put points up on the mid-lower tier defenses which still gives them wins. We got 2 turnovers with our awesome D and only got 1 FG out of it....our offense is going to struggle but Cam will have to put on the cape in the big game moments.
It seriously took this long for a fugin WR to figure out and say "Hey guys I promise I'm going to catch with my HANDS today" Where else in the NFL is this absurd WR play found....anywhere...someone point me there so I can feel better. I see Boykin stinks it up during practice but is a gamer and lights it up on game-day...we've seen these practice heroes before...rather have a gamer.
- Mike Remmers - Starter RT (Williams probably will be too but unlike Remmers Williams has LT potential and he'll go there long term putting Remmers back at RT) - Jerricho Cotchery - Backup - Corey Brown - Sent Packing - Kony Ealy - Starter (wouldn't be a starter if Hardy was here and IMO he won't have that ceiling on the field but also won't have Hardy's floor when it comes to off the field bs) - A J Klein - Backup (plays STs and all 3 LB spots...easily has a long career filling in) -Tre Boston - Backup (assuming he's only a FS would easily want him over Harper if he can do SS though) - Roman Harper - Backup (for mentoring the young guns and isn't quite as bad as a lot of us keep saying(myself included)) - Bene Benwikere - Starter (nickle back that is...IMO could hold down a side opposite of Norman too)
They have to know that Chemistry and team experience will come with time...Bersin is at his ceiling. I actually think Bersin plays a hell of a lot smaller than the is...man is 6'3 210lbs....anyone can answer this....honestly does he play like he's 6'3? To me it certainly doesn't seem like it. Ginn is 5'11 for comparison and he seems way bigger to me than Bersin. I like that he can actually catch and has very solid hands but when you really think about his size something doesn't add up there especially compared to Boykin whose 6'2 and looks way more fluid, strong, hops, and game speed. I say game speed because Bersin actually ran a 4.54 but looks slower than that to me and Boykin ran a hilariously bad 4.74 but doesn't look anywhere near that slow to me. Bersin has good route running so long as he's not tripping over his own shoe or getting mugged up by Seattle. If someone were to make an argument for something he has over Boykin it'd be only that....maybe.
Honestly Harper does have that "it" factor at safety...he's usually in the right place at the right time type of player...like that's the only way you can explain how he got a pick 6 with his wheel chair ass. His problem is he's stiff, slow, and isn't dynamic at all. What makes him work is his experience and the ability to just be where he needs to be(even if he misses the play or tackle he's usually at least there in the frame)(remember before when we'd have NO safety in the damn replay frame when we got beat deep for a TD?)
I understand everything my post was about how much his loss has hurt our offense(we have no explosive players at the skill positions)...nowhere did I say anything about why or how he was released. Smitty was/is an all time fan favorite/best player his loss still sucks...dood did get into another fight in the preseason...he may be getting "worse" in that regard as he ages...he seems to give even less fugs than he used to.
Refer to the Miami game and vs SF in other years and Seattle as well to see how that's going to go. Unless Cam supermans every 3/4th and short...which is literally our best option but puts Cam at risk from the jellys who try to hurt him while his prone.
Plenty of people saw the practices and the differences in the run game when he's in vs. when he's out. Brockel does play several positions and he sucks equally in each and every one of them. If we ran with Ward on the goal line plays we got stuffed in 2 separate games...he would have opened it up...especially with the 1's on the OL...he was wrecking with the shitter OL and 4-5th string RBs.
Boykin is our 2nd best WR we can only hope the coaching staff is actually hiding that fact and plan on starting him week 1 opposite Funchess..... What's also hard to forget is...Smitty...with him here we'd be in fantastic shape...4-94-1 63 yard TD last game...it's still sickening.
