You guys can talk height all you want and keep proving that you don't understand the game or the system. Jason Verrett fit's this system better than any CB in the draft. To be an effective CB in the system you have to be able to do a few things, play facing the ball reading the QB, be able to quickly switch from backpedal to drive, and tackle one on one. It's that simple, 5'9'' or 6'5'', if you can't do these things, you will not be a fit for us. It kills me that you guys are always pleading for a guy who is 6'2'' and has always played with his back to the ball chasing receivers in trail, that is not how we play! Open your damn eyes.
Comparing Varett to Munnerlyn is about as accurate as comparing Newton to JaMarcus Russell......
Having one attribute alike does not make them comparable.
SEA had a top 10 scoring offense. Its all relative to the other teams.
3 points....3 measly points.
That is the difference you are ranting and raving about.
How about our defense gets better and we give up 3 pts a game less than last year....same net end result. You are statistically correct in saying that they are 8th in scoring and we are 18th. But, when 3 points is the difference, it is not that big of an issue.
I thought the team played well last night....I definitely was pleasantly surprised. Who wouldn't rather play the pacers in round 1?
I think a lot of fans are putting unrealistic expectations on MKG. He's a good defender when he matches up well against who he's defending. Paul George is a much better match up physically for him then Lebron James. Lebron is Lebron....he's hard to guard, and Durant so lengthy that he can get a shot up at will and not get blocked. Those guys are problems for a lot of defenders that's why they're regarded as the best. What bugged me defensively against the Heat and the Thunder was lack of physicality, help defense, and lack of effort in the 4th quarter. If you can trust your interior help you can step out and hedge screens and play tight d on the perimeter. Coach Clifford ( who I think is a great coach) did the admirable thing sticking up for MKG by saying that his job was to eliminate Lebron from driving to the bucket....but by the time Lebron is 4 for 4 from 3pt range it's time to make an adjustment.
Only problem with MKG is that he might have already reached his ceiling. Other then getting stronger, I don't think he's going to develop an offensive game. He might only just be a decent defender and an energy guy....which is good but irreplaceable?
I'm not sure if MKG is going to develop into much more then what he is other then getting stronger
MKG is definitely a good defender.....I would just have expected more out of the overall #2 player in the draft than being a "good defender".
Yes this is correct....which is why tagging Hardy (if we can't get a long term deal done) was an astronomically stupid move. Renting him for a year at $13M with the other needs in this organization will prove to be painful.
I'd be extremely happy if the Panthers drafted Benjamin. Let's face it, Cam is a tall QB. Sometimes he overthrows his receivers because he is so tall. Having a player like Kelvin Benjamin at 6'5 would be such a huge weapon not only in the red zone, but he could be a deep threat too.
Cam's height really has nothing to do with his overthrows.
They are a product of footwork and mechnics.....sometimes due to lack of focus (happens to all QB's and they throw off their back foot....ball sails) and sometimes because he is wading through players and crap at his feet (keeping him from stepping into his throw).
But, I do not disagree with you that a big and physical receiver would be a GREAT addition.
My brother in law is a Colonel in the Air Force....flies F15 Strike Eagles. My younger brother was thinking about the military as a possible carreer move a year ago when he graduated from grad school. So, he was asking a lot of the same questions to my BOL.
Look what slithered back in. Philly already did the fanciest thing made schtick over a year ago, get some fresh material. Did you see my latest meme? Compare my week old pic in my avatar and your 2 month old pic, one of us has 4.5 chins and is working on chin number 5, wanna guess which one of us that is tubby?
Yep you got me. Posted another pic of me hanging out with friends and standing beside a very cute girl (who you photoshopped out by the way). You are so cool.
Funny how the obese, cankle sporting, pathetic little virgin that you are is trying to look cool.
Sunshine, you are as sad and pathetic as they come.
Now go post another pic of your sad 1/4 inch countertops to show us what a real man you are.
