Said it before and I'll say it again...

There is your "Victor Cruz".

Enjoy!

David Newton is late to the party....

To be fair, your record at playing Nostradamus isn't so hot.

 

(not that mine's much better)
 

 

Good read. Man I hope Slater is right about him.

 

 

Hope Slater is right.

 

Jackie Slater is one of the best offensive linemen of all time.  I'd tend to take what he says seriously.

 

Slater played 20 years in the NFL, as did our assistant OL coach Ray Brown (they were never teammates).

I hate to feel like we almost have to have him become something he shouldn't be for us to have a good season. 

 

But that's how I feel, and I am really pulling for the guy.

This is like a two year project.  We remember Chandler was filling in on the O-Line while he was on the practice squad in 2012.  This isn't some spur of the moment decision to get this guy to play on the offensive line.

 

His athleticism has never really been questioned and he has been working with Ray Brown and Jackie Slater?  Who better to learn from.  What is that like 35 years worth of experience?

 

I believe DG has no doubt that Chandler will succeed.  Our whole season offensively rides on Chandler.  If there were any doubt he would have signed someone as a "Just in Case".  I do believe we will sign someone when 53 man rosters are set but that person will be a back up not our starter.

i'm still in wait and see mode before i feel at all comfortable at OT.

 

slater may be a stud and have a great eye for talent, but he's also not coaching chandler for free. not saying he's lying, btw. my standard has always been "let's see it on the field".

I've been on this Chandler-wagon for some time and if one of a few things this staff has proven us right for so far is coaching up talent they find (This is also why I'm pumped about a brand new WR group).  Nate has the talent and seeming football IQ, athletic, great size..is totally a mold under the current reigns.  He reminds me of Bakhtiari a bit but more of a real tackle.  

 

And I think the "Hurney brought him here" idea is faulty outside of a select few with big contracts.  He's still here for a reason.
