In Topic: D-Will in shock over loss of receiving corp

10 April 2014 - 08:57 PM

I like Deangelo, I like him a lot, I just don't think he's worth the money he's being paid and I don't think he's as good as Marshawn Lynch and I get the feeling fans and coaches of the 31 other teams in the NFL would agree.

Dlo has always been boom or bust, I like that about him because it balanced out with the steady gains from Stewart. It just seemed like this year I was waiting longer than usual for those boom plays.
That being said those touchdown runs versus the 49ers and Saints were a thing of beauty

They don't if you say that Tiquan averages more yards per catch than Calvin Johnson-FACT, does that make him better? Nope. You would have to be a dumb ass to actually believe that you can compare a wrs ypc, and a rbs avg ypc. Lots of different factors that determine how many catches a wr get. So you can't take a wr ypc and project it to yardage.


You want Running back ypc?
Donald brown 5.3 ypc
LeGarette Blount 5.0 ypc
Andre Elllington 5.5 ypc

Are all better than....
Frank gore 4.1 ypc
Matt Forte 4.6 ypc
Adrian Peterson 4.5

Because numbers never lie...

You're proving my point, Dwill not being worth the money has nothing to with him.


That's not his point, his point is that Dwill couldn't break a tackle if his life depended on it so it wouldn't be smart to give him the ball at the goal line..meanwhile, Marshawn lynch....

In Topic: Josh Norris will be on WFNZ at 910

There is no guarantee that a 1st De beats out the guys who are already in the system. So he could be at 0 snaps as well.


You are 100% correct, but what if the WR we draft can't beat out Underwood or McNutt, you never know that's why it's always smart to go BPA.

All that being said I get the feeling with amount of WR available one will be BPA at 28. The fact of the matter is 1st round prospects grades aren't that far apart. I think those pining for a wideout, including myself, will be happy come draft night

No one on this board is suggesting that we take the DE if he has the same value as a position of need such as WR or OT. We are only suggesting that we take the DE if he has a noticeably higher value than the WR and OT, in other words BPA.

I understand the reaction "so are you saying that you would take a QB, RB, or MLB if they were BPA? Not necessarily and here's why: a backup QB sees 0 snaps a game unless the starter is injured.
The backup MLB sees 0 snaps, may play special teams. And as far as RB's go, nowadays, no one should be taking them in the first round anyway.

When you reach for need you can setup yourself for drafting a bust. I have no way of knowing this for sure but those years in which we took a receiver in the second round (Colbert, Jarrett) I think we were reaching for need in both instances and both times it didn't work out.

I'm not saying if u reach for a need position you're going to draft a bust, that's silly, I'm just saying that it's a higher chance of drafting a bust.

This is what happens: the GM knows his team has a huge hole at WR. As he watches film on the WR's he starts to overemphasize the players strengths and ignore their flaws. Why? Because he had such a need at that position.

To a hungry man any bitter thing is sweet.
You don't draft hungry, you draft full.
