#3325523 Justin Hardy route tree breakdown

Posted by JawnyBlaze on Today, 10:12 PM

If we plan on keeping Cotchery I just don't think it makes much sense to draft Hardy.

 

Cotchery is here a MAXIMUM of one more year.  His presence should not preclude us from drafting a talent like Hardy.  Hardy will be at least a very solid contributor in the NFL, I'm actually thinking he will be more.  A high end #2/slot (since these days assigning numbers is nearly pointless) guy is what I think he will become with the possibility of something much more.  I said it in another thread a while back and I'll repeat it.  I know it's slight hyperbole to make this comparison, but I see a young Jerry Rice in him, and Hardy doesn't even use stickum.  With the proper work ethic (and everything I've read says he has it) he can be a star.

#3324052 Seahawks GM hints he'll just let Wilson walk if he doesn't lower his...

Posted by JawnyBlaze on Yesterday, 08:25 PM

Going to have to disagree there.

 

2011 was a combo of the option finally breaking through into the NFL (with the help of Cam), and many of the old offensive vets from the Fox years having one last hurrah as they benefited from Chud being a mad scientist. It wasn't going to last, and it didn't. Chud's offense in 2012 was decidedly below average, much like Shulas.

 

In 2012 our offense was ranked 12th, 16th in the passing game.  That's slightly above average and exactly average, respectively.  And that was with Chud going full retard on the option stuff.  2011 offense didn't last because Chud changed his strategy, leaning more heavily on the option.  He did a poor job in 2012, but still not as bad as Shula.  And even with Chud's infuriating overuse of the option, we were still slightly over average.  The option didn't make Cam and the 2011 offensive success, Cam made the option succeed until Chud tried to make it all he did.  In 2011 and 2012 Cam was one of the best deep throwers in the game.  That's not option, that's standard QB plays.

 

So I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree.

If we sign a QB to a 100 million deal, guess what, the QB pretty much has to be the offense. And we've seen that, outside of 2011, a Cam focused offense is below average. Cam has his strengths, but one of his weaknesses is that he just doesn't make players around him better like Rodgers or Brady or Peyton do. You'll never hear from Erick Decker or Julius Thomas again. Greg Jennings stock collapsed after leaving GB. And Brandon "Stone Hands" Lafell had a career year with Brady. Blame Shula or the world all you want, but it's an unfortunate reality about Cam. He can be a great cog of the offense, but he can't be the offense.

 

In 2011, his rookie year no less, he WAS the offense and he made Smitty better than he had been the previous two years.  And we had a top 10 offense.  Cam can be THE offense, but he can't be the offense in a Shula run offense.  No one could.  The offense in a Shula run offense is the defense.

Chancellor + Sherman are easily more responsible for Seattle's success than Wilson.  Throw in the fact you could probably pay the two of them plus Lynch for not much more than the cost of a new top 3 QB contract right now and the GM is absolutely right. 




#3320382 Predict the level of outrage....

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 13 April 2015 - 12:40 PM

I don't think there'd be much outrage.  I'm one of the biggest Hardy fanboys here, but if he's there in the 3rd and we pass, then he's not worth a 3rd to us.  I'm ok with that.  Especially considering Gettleman's (admittedly brief) track record drafting CBs in the mid rounds.

Peanut... better at LT than Byron Bell

 

An actual peanut, lower case p, would be better at LT than Byron Bell.  Roasted, boiled OR raw.

#3319337 Greg Cosell: Todd Gurley "arguably the #1 prospect in this draft"

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 11 April 2015 - 10:58 PM

If he doesnt have any injury, we wont even have this argument. Clearly top 5 pick while healthy.

 

However, in those days he's down, the Georgia kid Nick Chubb also performed VERY well, so I wonder if Gurley's success also has a huge relation with that OL. Sure, any running back relies on the performance of OL but I hope we could have a RB who can keep having solid games with an average OL like ours.

 

I've seen that argument countered with the fact that Chubb was also a very highly recruited player himself.

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 11 April 2015 - 01:28 PM

Also, I'll be a little disappointed if we don't take advantage of what looks to be the best RB class I've ever seen.  Rounds 3-5, somewhere in there we need to get a guy because they're the type of guys that would be drafted in the 2nd round in most years.

Good video, always glad to listen to what you have to say.  To be honest, I hadn't heard of any of the picks other than the first and last.  I'd definitely be scratching my head if it went down like that.




#3318718 If we go defense at 25, who do you like?

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 11 April 2015 - 01:54 AM

Collins is the only one on that list, though I might be talked into Arik Armstead.  I was looking at him a while back, made a thread about him before the combine.  Preston Smith maybe, but he's not projected in the 1st or maybe even the 2nd.  I think he's the best 4-3 DE in this draft, though (outside of possibly Fowler, if he can do 4-3 DE in the NFL).  I might also be able to be talked into Goldman or Shaq.  Preston Smith is my favorite prospect of all mentioned, though.




#3317638 Receiver, Tackle, Cornerback, and Safety

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 09 April 2015 - 10:56 PM

1. Two OTs

2. A 1a/b WR

3. A S (whichever Boston isn't best suited for, I still haven't decided for myself)

4. A starting RDE unless either Alexander or Ealy are truly ready for the role

5. A 1b RB

6. An OLB




#3317069 Running backs other than Gurley

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 09 April 2015 - 03:05 PM

Ajayi, Buck, Taz, David Johnson, Davis, and Langford are all legit.  This draft at RB is damn good. 

 

You didn't even mention my favorite guy, Abdullah :)  Though if Gurley's all healed up he's an absolute monster and far and away the best prospect since AP.
 




#3317032 RUMOR: Panthers looking to move up to 16-20th pick

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 09 April 2015 - 02:48 PM

Giving up a third would suck but I really want dgb.. Him and kb would be a amazing one/two for years to come

yea but you have to know there's no way JR would let Gettleman draft a guy who admitted to pushing his gf down three flights of stairs if he wouldn't let him resign an elite DE whose only crime since joining the team was associating with a gold digger and getting hustled.
