  1. I think Mitchell's speed and physicality makes people think he's better in coverage than he is. I'd prefer a FS like Coleman who isn't as imposing but follows his assignment better and allows the plays to come to him. Those two would compliment each other well. The call out I always hear with Boston is about 2014, especially the div playoff game in Seattle. "He got roasted by Wilson(s)." What's funny is you can't name a safety that hasn't been roasted by Russell Wilson since then. In the regular season Wilson basically threw at Harper exclusively which is a tough matchup with Graham. Nobody would be surprised that Harper is getting picked on in coverage, but Coleman also gave up the TD on the fleaflicker, he was in position but Lockette was just the bigger player. Boston wasn't in terrible position in 2014's regular season game either. In the 2015 playoff game Wilson destroyed Coleman with one-on-one vs WRs. Basically what I'm getting at is that most fans use this example of Boston being trustworthy as if I don't have evidence that even our vets have been abused by the same great QB.
  2. Someone enlighten me on how Tre is such an untrustable player. Not hyperbole like "he missed a tackle", give me proof that when he plays the defense isn't the same.
  3. My choice for rookie camp MVP last year...

    I'd say Garrett but I also think the DBs will have something to say. I love Gettleman, no answer at CB? OK I'll draft a deep competition and let the players fight for it. Competition builds teams.
  4. 2nd Wave Free Agency Starts May 12th

    This notion that we need some guy to be "the surehanded vet" is so stupid. How'd that work in the SB? Funchess and Philly made the best plays at WR. The expectations are every WR will make the play when necessary.
  5. 2nd Wave Free Agency Starts May 12th

    Ok Boldin boys which young WR is losing a spot for your 35 year old? You're giving up a cheap WR with potential for a guy with maybe one year left in the tank. Gettleman likes young cheap potential and doesn't believe you're a player away. Stop buying brand names your GM invests in the future not the past.
  6. Sorry my brain still functions when I come here. But I'm not perfect and I do forget it's not the same for everyone.
  7. Because the most unbiased source is panthers.com
  8. Let's play pick two running backs

    Its Wegher vs Fozzy and it all coming down to pass blocking and who you trust more in a big moment.
  9. SI.com's Chris Benoit explains our CB situation

    Umm how about how the pass rush is going to be much better (nearly 2013 level) and even with Josh leaving this is the youngest group of DBs Rivera has had, and it has more potential than any previous.. and by the way literally all of them are known for ballhawking.
  10. Hedging your bets, a lesson in drafting success.

    The exact same logic could be used for the Butler pick you just questioned.
  11. Yeah like 80% of NFL cbs fit those basic metrics. Too bad the players aren't. Boykin has seriousquick twitch. Josh is a smooth strider.
  12. They're the same if you take out the wingspan and 20lb difference
  13. Name the top slot receivers that are the teams deep threats. Speed goes outside to stretch the field.
  14. Kyle Love signed to 1 year deal

    This^ I think we can realistically project an improved pass rush through player development (Ealy, Delaire?), we've improved the DT depth and we've improved at CB, possibly SS. Do I want a young DE? Yes, but I wouldn't be surprised if Gettleman takes a DT People need to realize a "fix" isn't just sitting at home hoping to make $3M per year.
  15. Thought you were going to say Patrick Robinson which would be a better signing than both Weddle and Cro
