Mr. Scot

Did Star and Short wear down?

Its hard to believe that an UDFA played more snaps this year than a 1st rd pick. Someone in the scouting dept deserves a raise.

Not when you consider the positions they play. You don't usually rotate corner back. You very typically rotate defensive tackles.

Nature of the game.  DL rotates.  Corner not so much.

When he was in college, Star had a rep for being dominant early in games and tailing off later

Is easy to tail off at the end of games when you're playing 92% of your team's defensive snaps. He's playing ~50% now.

Mind you. now that they have a full pro season under their (large) belts, next year could be a lot of fun to watch.

I can't wait to see Short next year.  I love Star, he was a day one starter, but Short is so quick, IMO hes as quick off the line as Star

Vikes used to have a similar styled combo in Henry Thomas and John Randle.

 

Would love for Star and Short to be that good.

They're rookies.

 

Did you not hear Gettleman praised Star yesterday?

 

Cmon. Lock thread now.

I don't know that any fan could answer that question, but I remember hearing a NFL coach say that all rookies hit the wall.
