Is Paradis better than R Kalil?

Recommended Posts

Does Paradis have an underachieving brother who can't play LT that we could sign?  Need this info before I decide whos better.

Should we be concern Paradis and Cam havent spoken to each other yet? 

Not really.  At this point, other than saying hello, what are they going to talk about constructively?

How’s the shoulder coming?  How’s the leg?  Is Elway as big of an arse as he sounded the other day?  Was Shula as much of a putz as he looked back in the Super Bowl?  Is there anything you can do to give me more than a half a second when I drop back to throw?  Do you like running for your life back there, or was the OL just that inept?  Do you think I will look better in black than I did in orange?

Most of what they need to do can only be accomplished by reps and getting used to each other.  Hopefully their respective recoveries do not limit that time.

It shouldn't bother me as much as it does, ha...but man, Ryan Kalil was a member of the Carolina Panthers for 12 seasons and quite a few people still can't spell his last name correctly.  That extra "h" people like to throw in there gets me every time, lol, just one of those things I guess

I hope he is all pro this year, but I will wait to see until the season starts. I thought Poe was going to be better than Star. At least Washington is back working with the line 

Poe was not the disaster many here keep suggesting at least.

This season will tell the tale. Honestly the whole line regressed under Hoke. Let's see what Washington can do with the line where that is what he is focused on this year rather than handing it off.

It’s autocorrect adding the “h”. Most people know how to spell his name.

Like I said, shouldn't bother me as much as it does, but multiple people in this relatively short 2 page thread did it.

Kalil in his prime was better. 

But he is an upgrade of what Kalil was and became in his later years.

True.  He just wasn't as good as Star.  And Star was always the underrated guy on the line.  Short got the hype because of sack numbers.  I have always viewed Star as the better DT between him and short.  Just had a different job.

Today? Ryan retired right? 

Seems much more consistent and much better lately.

While I do think Paradis now is an improvement over Ryan at the current time, I do want to play some devils advocate right now.  Larsen graded pretty good in his absence in 2017, but the overall O-line performance declined in his absence.  PFF has no way to know what protections and blocking schemes were called or changed by the center on any given play so they can only grade based on what the Center specifically did blocking and the snaps.  What I'm saying is that the most important part of what a Center brings to the game is literally impossible to grade without looking at how well the line played as a whole because they are calling protections.  Another good example of this besides Ryan Kalil is how Max Unger helped improve the saints overall O-line and why his retirement will mean bigger problems than they think.  FWIW, again, I think Paradis will be better for the panthers than Ryan was the past 2 seasons, but I also think its why I think the panthers targeted a good vet center so heavily because a young center or one who isn't very cerebral can lead to an entire O-line looking worse than what their talent level is.
