DJ Moore / Samuel from Slot/Perimeter

Recommended Posts



DJ had problems with press so not too much of a surprise whereas Curtis is the opposite. I am somewhat surprised Curtis didnt do so much from the slot though.

DJ is like a ping pong ball in the slot, too. I like him there. Curtis isn't the best going across the middle type IMO. It seems he has his most success in space and going deep.

This is a really cool state. Makes me laugh at that guy who questioned the analytics hire in that thread a few weeks ago.

That's what she said!

Problem with QB ratings comparing players  is context. Unless you know how many times they were targeted in each position  you can't really decide how valid the numbers are. Otherwise a very small number of targets can skew the numbers at one position or another. A large number or at least a similar number give credibility to what looks like marked differences. In any case you see another use for analytics. Then if you further break it down against each team and player, you see how game planning begins looking at results and tendencies.

That's interesting,can help make deciding on key play.

But all the data are not static state,should get changing after every game every training.

At the same time, these stats are a case where film backs it up. It's no question DJ Moore is still a rookie and has work to do with his press release. Which is a fixable trait and no wonder why he struggled on the outside at times.

Whereas Curtis Samuel already showed he's very good at nuances in route running and against press on the outside.

But yeah, discussing stats in general, many factors can skew such in one way or another.

Obviously watching them play gives you more information than just looking at numbers. Which surely provides context. But remember that film shows what happened in the past and isn't predictive of the future. Moore will be a veteran this year and will get many more opportunities in both positions. The same for Samuel as long as he can stay healthy. This will be something to pay attention to in the preseason. Given Cam was limited much of last year I am putting only so much into any stats from last year. I am expected big improvement this year from both players from the slot and outside. I suspect Hogan will get a lot of time in the slot as well.

Ron will absolutely keep DJ on the outside....even though he is pretty bad against any type of press.

 

As I have heard more than once, "if DJ worked as hard before the ball got to him as he did after, he could be a superstar."

If DJ can learn how to beat press, and run a full route tree, the sky is the limit.

Despite how we usually play him, Bradbury is one of the better press CBs in the NFL. Perfect guy for Moore to work against to help him out. He has all the physical tools to beat a jam, he just needs the skills.

    • I want the old Luke back he looked bad last year and last game he couldn’t get off any blocks and over running the plays again 
    • It is on Manhertz, it's also on Cam. Cam couldn't handle the jailbreak blitzes they were throwing at the team. They simply sent more rushers than there were blockers. When that happens there is always one or more uncovered receivers, the QB has to find them, fast, and fire. If you win it, you probably score big. If you lose, it's a sack. Most QBs coming  off of  their break aren't up to game speed yet and Cam didn't pass the test. The point is, those kind of  blitzes are rarely done in the preseason, kind of a gentleman's agreement between coaches to keep from getting  QBs injured. Guess what Belichick does? He goes after your weaknesses no matter when it is. He doesn't play by unwritten rules (or written ones when it suits him). And now we have an injured QB. If you really look at the original play in question, the jailbreak blitz is obvious with seven men rushing the line and an eighth joining in quickly after the snap. Before the snap, Cam sees the situation, calls an audible and begins to drop back. His drop back is deep and he realizes the pressure has broken with Manhertz getting beat to the outside. Others were getting  beat and gaps were being shot. He starts to scan but doesn't get enough time to find his hot read. Sack. I'm chalking it up partially to Manhertz who I don't think is really that great of a blocking TE, and to Cam who in later season form would have dropped back two steps and shot the tight gap to Manhertz's left and made a few yards. He may have also been able to catch his hot read with a fast pass.  It's preseason, though, and the team isn't playing up to game speed yet. The Patsies came in gunning for him. They sacked him there and eventually hurt Cam in the preseason yet again. I'm sure Belichick puts that as a positive in his ledger for how the season plays out.
