"Flawed style of offense" are you fuging kidding me?! Just taking a peek at sheer numbers from Oregon and philly says you are talking out of your ass right now
It's flawed in the sense that it puts a lot of stress on the D. It doesn't complement the D well. They can increase the talent on the D to compensate but all the talent in the world will get tired being on the field too long.
The layman loves watching an explosive offense, but is it better to be more balanced on both O and D (Patriots) rather than favoring one side so greatly like the Eagles do with a top O but bottom D.
As good as he may turn out being, I was actually more concerned about them drafting Marriotta due to his mobility. They have witnessed first hand the damage Cam has done to them. Jameis isn't exactly mobile. I'm surprised there have been no Leftwich comparisons for him.
You're gonna have a hard time convincing people who only watch the Panthers that other players in the NFL got game...even tho we had a losing record clearly our guys are the best.
I think its about trying to give these stats more context than saying our guys our the best. People slam Shula for being conservative but look who we have as down field threats. The year we draft Benji we cut Smitty. Our big downfield threat to stretch the field is Ginn, a guy who apparently can't catch on as a starting WR with any other team except us it seems. We simply don't have the talent at T or WR to be chucking it 40-50 times a game. Not to mention the money we've invested to RUN the ball.
VT does have a fast track though. Just remember that Hurney recently confessed they dropped Anquan Boldin out of the second round because of his 40 at the combine and selected Bruce Nelson instead. We all know how that worked out. 40 time isn't everything.
I think there's a youtube of this guy in a dunk contest at VT. He has skills for sure looking at his 2013 highlights.
Depends on how you look at it. McCoy is big money. They turned him into kiko and maxwell. Kiko could be as good for them as Luke is to us. And they desperately needed help on the back end D. I'd value MLB and CB over RB personally.
Foles verses a healthy Bradford is no contest. While its a huge gamble because of the injury history but a QB with prospects like Bradford aren't just available. Foles was solid for them but how much of that was Kelly? I'll give Kelly the benefit of the doubt when it comes to who he wants playing QB.
I'm not saying he's buying low to save, but if a player like Alonzo was healthy and for some reason a UFA he'd command a top salary. Kelly is gambling, but I think these moves could work out for them.
That was a nice way Kelly put it, Kiko and Maxwell for McCoy. But what if he said Bradford for McCoy instead? They are paying Bradford more than McCoy.
I'm also not buying Bradford is better than Foles either. Forget the fact he has missed like 31 games in 5 years and has an 18-30 record as a starter and has one of the lowest career YPA's ever, so yeah, he's going to look more accurate throwing shorter passes. I had to chuckle when Chip called him big and strong. He has to be the frailest 240 pounder I've ever seen.
