Coples at Senior Bowl

207 posts in this topic

I was like you about Pep until his own teamates started ?ing his effort.

Beason did it on the radio in charlotte.

That's true but I think a lot of that was not believing in our team and philosophies. I for one, never liked John Fox or Jake Delhomme so I can understand it a little. I definitely wouldn't have pulled a bitch while making $17 million. I'm just sick of people acting like he isn't good. If we still had him it wouldn't matter who our DT's were, he and CJ would close the edge everytime. Sucks that it took so long for our FO to wake up.

@Panthro Not sure what that has to do with him getting it right with Williams. A lot of people were wrong about Cam.

Nobody said Pep wasn't good. But his own teamates said they were watching MNF and Jared Allen and asking themsleves why Pep wasn't bringing it like him. When Beason calls you out their is a problem.

Not to mention Pep admittied it.

I remember when people on this board and across the country were saying that Mario Williams "would never be as good as Peppers", that he shouldnt have gone in the top five, and that Casserly intentionally screwed up the draft, pointing to Williams' lack of production at NC State.

Let's make this Clear Coples is not in Pep or super mario catagory or level. Those 2 could slack off and still get a sack.

Pep is and was a freak of nature.

Mario is such a good athete they move him to OLB and still no drop off.

Coples is more like Gaines Adams (RIP) and D bowers

He's still a big strong 6'6 dude who can run. He will probably already be better against the run than Pep ever was. The next guy to come out like Pep/Mario is that Clowney guy from Rock Hill. I watched him dominate in agame last year as a freshman

Because 4-3 DE and 3-4 rush OLB are that different.

But Jack let's be real some of the best 4-3 DE can't make that move to 3-4 rush LB.

CJ, Jarred Allen, Justin Smith, Will Smith, C cambell, Osi, and Tuck.

Clowney is a freak of nature. Coples does the whodini to much for my liking.

FINALLY somebody else sees this.

He's a good athlete, but Mario and Peppers are freakish athletes. I'd only take a guy with Coples' athletic ability at #8/9 if he was incredibly polished (i.e. he had a variety of pass rushing moves/could set the corner etc) AND had an unrelenting motor.

Coples doesn't have either of these. I'll pass unless we trade down.

Well Butch Davis said he has played OLB while at UNC.this guy is athletic and some are sailing him short for some reason and he has produced.if the FO choose to go in this direction I have no problems with it.
