#2734442 D-Will in shock over loss of receiving corp

Posted by emhoward on 10 April 2014 - 12:23 PM

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...

#2732740 Josh Norris will be on WFNZ at 910

Posted by emhoward on 09 April 2014 - 12:23 PM

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.

#2718674 The Kony Ealy Gambit

Posted by emhoward on 27 March 2014 - 05:09 PM

I think of it like this::

If the WR/OT is equal in ability to the DE, then you take the WR/OT because it's a position of need.

If the WR/OT is a 9 on a scale from 1-10 and the DE is a ten, I'd personally take the DE because he's the better player, but I certainly understand those who would lean WR/OT.

If the WR/OT is an 8 while the DE is a ten then you take the DE every time IMO

So with the OP's example, it depends on if Gettlemen believes Kony is equal to, marginally better than, or clearly better than the WR's in this draft. If he's better at all, I'm talking Kony. This philosophy gets murky in later rounds because the players values get closer together.

This is hyperbole, but to those so adamant about taking a WR/OT is the first because of need, would you have a problem with Gettlemen taking Clowney? If you wouldn't then it's not the philosophy you have a problem with it's more that you don't believe that Kony is any better than the WR's potentially available.

Also you can never have to many pash rushers. No I wouldn't draft a QB BPA. Backup QBs don't see the field. Backup MLBs rarely see the field, as well as backup safeties and offensive linemen. But for Dline, cornerback, or Wide Receivers, you can never have too many quality players at those positions and if they're BPA, I wouldn't hesitate

#2664450 Guess who got 16 reps on the bench press today

Posted by emhoward on 24 February 2014 - 04:07 PM

It's really guys:
If Cooks ability = a tall receivers ability, you take the tall receiver
If Cooks ability, on a scale of 1-10 is a 9 and a tall receivers an 8.5. I would take Cooks, some would take the tall receiver
If Cooks ability is 9 and the tall receiver's is notably lower you DO NOT take the tall receiver just because he's tall.
I like Matthews and OBJ over Cooks but that's because I think they are equally talented.

We don't need a tall receiver. We need the best receiver available, if he happens to be tall, great. If it happens to be Cooks, take him

#2452322 Is ESPN's QBr meant to be a joke?

Posted by emhoward on 26 October 2013 - 11:36 PM

I didn't realize it was a joke until last week when they had Colin k with the highest QBR for the entire season with a 99

His numbers? 13 for 21 199 yards 1 TD(rushing) 0 int and 68 yards rushing

Seriously? That's the best QB performance of the year?

#2452168 Cam's Contract if the season ended today

Posted by emhoward on 26 October 2013 - 07:22 PM

He's not an elite QB (yet) but he is a francise QB....

I define a francise QB simply buy this: if we were to get the 1st pick in the draft would we draft a QB. The answer to that, I believe, is a no.

It's as close to a must-win as a non must-win game can be.

#2049587 Rivera will be back

Posted by emhoward on 16 December 2012 - 08:33 PM

To me it literally, and I mean literally depends on the Saints game. Beat the saints I say keep him, lose to the saints I say dump him. The saints smashed the Bucs today, they are still playing hard, beat that team then Rivera deserves one more shot to me.

Lose and your gone. Last year we came into the last game against them on a hot streak and got it handed to us, I want Rivera to show me he's learned something from that.

#2027778 Cam Newton or Bust

Posted by emhoward on 02 December 2012 - 06:18 PM

Wilson and Luck win at the end with inferior talent, but Cam needs new RB , WR , OL and nothings his fault(Sarcasm)

Cam played good for 3 /half quarters

Cam overthrew another 5 passes again

Lafell got benched for losers

Cam held onto the ball to long because Backups couldn't get open

Defense let B. Quinn get his first 2 TDs of the season in his 5 start

OL (Gross) couldn't block for crap on the last drive

RB with under 20 carries........Again

Insanity- doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results= 2012 Panthers

Seattle doesn't have inferior talent to us, especially when you consider coaching as one of the talents...

with the colts it can be debated
