#2349080 Goodbye David Gettis

Posted by fieryprophet on 31 August 2013 - 06:53 PM

Look, it's really effing simple: Gettis was in this offense for the last two years. He STILL didn't know where to line up. A receiver not knowing where to line up is not going to see the field. A receiver that has had two years to read the playbook and watch the snaps and view film and still doesn't know where to line up isn't going to make the team.

 

It's really that effing simple.

Well, what do you know, he made it.

You haven't been paying attention to Wes Horton.

Clausen was waived/injured? Interesting.

Gettis not knowing offense after two years did him in.

There's nothing creepy about this guy right?


A common question on the Huddle.

Sorry, off topic, but this is just driving me crazy. Just read through all 20 pages of this thread and every time I scroll past any of fieryprophet's posts I get stuck gazing at the hot chica at the bottom of his post. I sent a PM to him asking who she is and have got no response.

Please help a brother out. WHO IS SHE?!?!

 

I didn't reply because I honestly couldn't remember where I found the pic and when I went looking I got. . .preoccupied.

Yeah could be a seamless transition and he really blossoms as an OL, but how often do players switching positions in the NFL work? I just don't trust it.

 

The knock on Chandler has been his run blocking.

 

However, that being said, he finished the preseason playing 55 snaps against Pittsburgh at LT and preserved his 100% pass blocking efficiency, has only committed 1 penalty in all 4 games combined, and graded at +2.0 overall with a +1.5 in pass blocking and even a +0.1 in run blocking in the final game. He has given up no QB hurries, hits, or sacks in 127 total snaps.

 

Granted, he still has a long way to go but his overall performance has been highly encouraging.




#2348496 Norman Preseason DPOY

Posted by fieryprophet on 31 August 2013 - 01:52 PM

what was the snap count like the other games and did he do just as well against the ones?

 

He took around 37% of snaps before the last game, only starting vs. Bears and Steelers. As far as first team snaps, that's hard to decipher for defenders since he might play against the 1st team QB but line up against a 3rd string WR, but in general he played about 40/60 of his snaps against ones in the first three game and almost entirely against 2s and 3s Thursday.

I know there's this DE we let walk that's still around, I think his name was Julius Peppers? I think he's starting for the Bears if I'm not mistaken.

 

We didn't cut Peppers. And he didn't want to be here. Can we let that go, I haven't looked at our d-line since and thought "gee, I wish we had paid Peppers a ton of money."




#2348297 Norman Preseason DPOY

Posted by fieryprophet on 31 August 2013 - 12:11 PM

We weren't seeing things with Norman, he played 65 of 66 snaps on Thursday. I think the coaches wanted to see how he'd handle a full game workload before considering moving him up the depth chart.




#2346265 FP's Preseason Risers

Posted by fieryprophet on 30 August 2013 - 12:20 AM

OT Nate Chandler: As has been mentioned elsewhere he's been more than passable in the pass blocking game and has not been committing a string of unforced errors that would concern you given his move back to OT. His athleticism has been a boon as well as, despite his raw skillset, he has shown the ability to recover even against faster and stronger players. His run blocking will need a lot of work, mostly because he simply doesn't know how to utilize leverage to drive a defender off the ball. With hard work this move may prove beneficial to the depth of our offensive line.

 

WR/KR Ted Ginn: I was very concerned with Ginn's route running early in the preseason, as it seemed he simply did not know where he had to go within the offense. But after the Bears game he seemed to settle down and  at least end up in the area he needed to be. There's no denying his speed, and the punt return was a magnificent piece of work considering that he had to dodge a gunner just to take a step. I'm not going to crown him as the #3 receiver or anything based simply on one game, but even if he does nothing but run vertical routes he can be a piece that helps the offense manipulate coverages into favorable situations. Anything more is gravy.

 

DE Wes Horton: Once Nzegwu was cut (and I'm wondering if they will try to sneak him on PS) the coaching attention seemed to fall on this UDFA, who has racked up a lot of snaps but has a couple of sacks and several pressures to show for it. He may not make the final 53 but he flashed a lot and might also be a PS option.

 

P Brad Nortman: I've been pleasantly surprised with Nortman, who seems to have gotten his shaky leg under control and is now consistently booming the ball downfield. The safety play  made by the punt team tonight wouldn't have happened if Nortman didn't crush the ball from his own 30 all the way to the opponent's 3 yard line. And he has had several other excellent kicks with good hangtimes and distance.

 

DB Josh Norman: I don't think Norman has magically figured out how to utilize his ball skills at the next level, because he's always had a nose for the ball. What's more impressive is that he's discovering how to put himself in better position to actually use those skills, sticking closer to receivers and baiting throws (a perfect example being his INT tonight, where he let Landry Jones think he was beat before easily stepping in front of the pass and nearly taking it to the house.) He's still prone to lose receivers playing in front of him at times, but he has also shown a willingness to let receivers challenge him deep without immediately bailing and trying to play the receiver rather than the ball. I don't know if he will get elevated to a starter position, but I have a feeling we will be utilizing a rotational secondary anyways that will allow him to see a lot of snaps no matter what his position on the depth chart.

 

K Graham Gano: Yet another pleasant surprise from our special teams: with the struggles the offense has had at converting opportunities into touchdowns, he's had a number of field goal tries from a range of distances and has made them all look good. His kickoffs have also been consistently reaching the endzone: let's hope this newfound consistency continues.

 

LB Luke Kuechly: This may be blatantly obvious, but it bears repeating that Kuechly has lit it up this preseason. And what's more, his absence in the lineup shows tremendously, as the brain is conditioned to believe that Kuechly will be within three feet of almost every ball-carrier within a second of the snap, so you are surprised when the backup linebacker isn't there to meet them or fails to make the tackle. What's been great to see is that he is finding his way into more passing lanes and breaking up throws or picking them off, something that he couldn't do consistently as a rookie. Seeing that he has continued to develop his game is a boon to our entire defense.

 

DT Star Lotulelei: After a quiet start to his career, he came on strong against a talented Ravens offense, generating interior pressure and commanding constant attention or eating up ballcarriers. He is still prone to traps, but considering the difficulty for a DT to transition to the pro level his positive performance is a great sign.

 

DT Kawann Short: Much like Star, Kawann had strong game against Baltimore that demonstrated his penetrating ability and unusual speed for his size. There's still a lot of rawness in his technique, but he's started to deliver on some of the promise that made him our 2nd round pick and has shown a better motor than advertised.
