Kelvin Benjamin - Aside from the touchdown....

Recommended Posts

Let's keep everything in perspective... it was a preseason game, not everyone plays at 100% in these games. How about we wait until the real season begins and we see how Benji does. I'm not saying the kid doesn't have a very high ceiling, I'm just saying let's not annoint him the NFL's next Jerry Rice.

One last thought... I think Benjamin is the NFL's next Jerry Rice.

Welp....

it was sarcasm.  Though, BR actually has some decent staffed writers now.

 

Really quick way for the huddle to self regulate trolls is to stop feeding them.

I'm not trolling, boss.  I have an opinion and I have internet access.  I am no different then anyone else here except I have a dissenting opinion contrary to the fanatics here.  I don't need anyone reaction or comments.

 

If I would have said something about being all butthurt and Gilmore blows and KB is the best ever at everything possible I would have been rejoiced and crowned King.  But, a dissenting viewpoint on something so miniscule as one play, in preseason, I am lambasted.

 

Your place or not, I ask you to simply understand you are so far off base on your accusation.  I do my best to contribute to this forum, and not just on the football chapter.  I joined this forum because for years I saw good football conversation and thought I might be able to add something every now and again.  I call it like I see it - Bills fan or not, I am a football fan.  I enjoy many aspects of this game and try not to wear my welcome out.  If I am unwelcome by some, everyone, or anyone, I really don't care.  My opinions are no different then anyone's.

 

If anyone wants me to leave, great.  If you want me to leave, great.  I don't give a dang.  I'm not here to rattle the cages or puff up my chest.  If I create football conversation about football topics - that's all I hope.  Instead, I get a legion of retards with wity one liners and sophomoric humor standing behind nothing but zingers and "oohs and ahh's."

 

Wouldn't we all much rather enjoy talking about football instead of slamming someone for disagreeing?

im a Gilmore fan, and he had pretty good coverage (even tho he did lose his hip), but there is no defense for the perfect ball. Anderson placed the ball perfectly and Benji made a helleva catch.

Something like that. Put 11 on Benjamin. Benjamin's hands will still be highest.

As much as I like to believe this I can see the same problem we ran into last year Kb is going to do a lot of good things this year but when he can't guys like Jericho avant and others need to step it up and show why there better then the last group of guys

I guess your joking, cause that ball was woefully under thrown. :startle:

 

Benji had Gilmore beat, then he slowed down, due to the poorly thrown ball. This is when/where he stumbled, and had to catch the ball inches off the ground.

At one point, Buffalo Bills corner and former Gamecock Stephon Gilmore was tasked with pressing Benjamin at the line. The result was Gilmore being thrown to the ground as Benjamin effortlessly completed his route. The last place a NFL defensive back wants to be just after the ball is snapped is on his back. It's not a good look.

Keep in mind Gilmore is a respectable six foot one inch corner.

This may have helped with getting Gilmore to the ground

Hahaha, I forgot KB grabbed some dreads.

These guys will get open. Avant, cotchery are route gurus. We also have 3 TE that are pretty dang decent, one who will be the next TE beast that came out of nowhere.

No worries my man. If Kelvin gets double teamed, we have guys who will get open and hold onto the ball. Cam has never had the plethera of options around him that he has now.

that ball was not woefully under thrown. it was placed inside, but he fell forward and still caught the ball. Benji did have him beat, and a bad under thrown would have been picked by Gilmore.

Yeah, I think many Huddler's forget (since the hey day of SS) how it works.

 

If KB's one on one; he's going to catch some balls at a high rate (including some difficult ones).

 

If/when hes double teamed, that should leave one on one some sure handed receivers in Cotchery and Avant, and some good to very good ones in Olsen and Dickson.

 

He's just going to open up the offense, if Shula is smart enough to pass, until he can hit them with a burst from the RB's.
