Wharton is a dang good G. He also is diverse enough that he can slide out and do what he did in 2009 at the T spot.
Chemistry among the line and QB play are two huge factors that I think people don't focus enough on. If you shuffle the line too much they aren't gonna look good b/c injury and QB imo is one of the bigggest factors in how a OL looks in pass protection. Bad QB play will make any OL look like garbage.
Right, but in Fiz's defense, I think the Giants' overall grade for that draft suffers because they traded away the better quarterback and high draft picks for Manning. They knew they were going to get one of the top quarterbacks and evaluated them wrong, and I think that is a major strike against that draft for the Giants. You never know how rounds 2-7 seven are going to fall, so some disappointments there can be explained.
I will agree, they lost some as Rivers > Eli but that really is another topic. Eli is what they got with the pick and outside of his rookie year the Giants have not had a single losing season.
I agree, you can't expect 2-7 not to have flops. I just think Hurney has missed in rounds 2-7 at a higher rate than a lot of teams. Rounds 2-3 especially...Carolina pimping the line they emphasize building through the draft means Hurney should be looked at hard in rounds 2-7.
I've believed pretty much all along that Moore would get a shot to compete in training camp. Hurney talked about him as someone they definitely wanted back and when he referred to his issues last year, he never mentioned "struggles", only "injuries".
Add in that when you look at their respective skill sets, Moore is actually much better suited to run a Coryell offense than Clausen is. Still, Moore was an undrafted free agent and Clausen was a high draft pick, a recent one at that.
The failure to mention Moore could indeed just be a miscue on the part of the writer, or maybe something he didn't feel was relevant.
Agree 100%......that just amplifies how dumb it will be for Carolina to waste a roster spot this season on Clausen. Clasuen is going to waste a spot this year and then they will move on......scrapping him in camp and giving Moore a spot imo would be the wiser move.
Time to admit Carolina made a mistake drafting QBs during a lameduck coaches last year. Made no sense then.......the time to go after young QBs was once a new staff was brought on.
I want NCmonzta to come back and explain to us how Fox should have left Moore in there after he was on IR
maybe NCmonsta meant....
Moore should have never been benched in week 2....and Clausen should have never been given the keys as starter week 3. In theory, Moore starts the entire season.
since you are changing things.....you don't keep everything else occured later in the real timeline of events the same. Moore plays up until the NO game as the starter......then the events of that game change as well.
I understand your point but we were more than respectful. We washed and cleaned his body, had a military preacher write a prayer and translate it into Arabic, but his body into a weighted body bag. If bin Laden caught one of our leaders, he would have them beheaded left in a field somewhere while the whole thing ran on constant loop on Al Jazera
to us, we were respectful.....
to radicals, it was an improper burial regardless as it was at sea. No point giving them visual ammo.
more negatives than positives imo to release that one. I think the opposite is true for the death shot.
Don't get me wrong, I am not saying he deserved a proper burial. I think they should have just set him on fire and kicked him overboard. He didn't deserve anything. We don't need to show the Muslin world anything in regards to this particular Muslim is my point.
However, Edwards is still an unknown......can't rule him out b/c he didn't play. No reason to think Edwards can't be nasty in the slot with someone who wants to use 3 WRs in his sets.
Perfect example, the newly crowed god known as Charles Johnson.
1 tackle is what his stat sheet showed going into his 2nd year.......now we didn't give up on him but realized it took time. You can't give up on guys who don't get a chance to prove who they are on a field.
Newton would be a great pick outside the Top 10 as a project QB with big upside.
Its a stupid pick #1 overall with no #33 and lots of needs, period.
ESPN will tell you Carolina has lots of needs.......Carolina realistically outside of QB doesn't have anymore than most teams. Carolina has a weakness at DT they need to address.....and they could easily address that and CB and OL in free agency. They purposefully didn't do that last year.
QB ain't stupid. There have been two real problems w/ Carolina since AZ......coaching and the QB position. We addressed one, now for the other.
Cam Newtons not even a consensus top 10 prospect much less Top 5 and we are picking him #1?
Drafting him is all on the assumption that in the NFL, for first time in his career, he will learn and master: Passing Accuracy, Reading Defenses and playing from the Pocket....this is why its a huge gamble and a polarizing pick if they do it.
It feels like the Panthers are taking out a second mortgage on the house, going to Vegas and doubling down at the Roulette table.
it is just like Tampa Bay said....they would have taken Josh Freeman #1 overall if that is where they were sloted.
