I hadn't heard anything recently. I still think he'll be good, especially in that defense.

ok...

If you recall, Quinton felt that he learned the entire playbook during minicamp and OTAs.
But, rookies hit a wall when they are learning the pro game. Coach Pettine and his staff began to see this when they put the pads on this past Sunday. Other players had started to notice that Coples was looking a little “robotic”. By all accounts, he is getting a little bogged down, which is understandable.
So what is the solution? A coach, like any teacher, has to put the player in the best position to be successful. How they do that for Quinton is back his workload off a little, and then work him back up. Here is what coach Pettine had to say about it this week:


“We’ll work it from back to front,” Pettine said of Coples’ role. “He’ll be a third-down guy, similar to Maybin. Get him out there in passing situations and then work him into the base defense. Let him be a back-up for the guys in base, but keep his plate small.”

i've seen more stuff like this and some saying that he was really struggling against back up OL.

they expect him to get better and be more involved, but to start they are really going to be scaling him back.

I remember back in January I posted this thread in the draft forum suggesting drafting Luke:

And the VAST majority of the folks who replied all said 'Dan Connor 2.0', 'can't cover', 'too slow', etc. It's very interesting to go back and look at that thread and see all the folks who were so dead set against Luke then that are on his jock now.

i repented later and got on board in the weeks leading up to the draft. it still wasn't exactly what i wanted but i said often that it would have been a smart call and it was.

here's a somoa cookie for your efforts...
Posted Imagegood call.

By the time the draft rolled around I didn't really care. There were a couple I didn't want, but no one guy really stood out.
