Deserved shout outs

Recommended Posts

Plenty of shouts outs for our main playmakers.  I want to give a shout out to a couple guys who don’t get their name called enough.

 

1.  John Miller.  Dude is a damn man in the run game and great pulling on screens and dump offs.  He literally picked up Samuel and pushed him for another 8-10 yards on that final drive.  Great pickup by Marty.

2.  Joey Slye...so far has been one of the best kickers in the NFL. Clutch kick at the end.

Marquis Haynes I believe also had some decent pressure on the QB at times once Burns went out with concussion

Mike Davis.  Going to be hard to keep this man on the bench when Christian returns

Really glad we stuck with Slye over Gano. He has a huge leg and time to grow. Gano choked when the game was on the line.

And his one big kick against the Giants doesn’t count for sht. I don’t care what anyone says

Imagine both in the game.  CMC could split out wide, and the defense still had to respect Davis in the backfield.

Agreed. There were people whining when we traded Turner for Okung. Do we even miss Turner with Miller in there? And do I even have to mention Okung? First legitimate LT we've had in years. 

As for Slye, he is quieting down all the incessant crying about Butker. Slye isn't quite  as good of course, but Butker has actually missed 1 more kick than Slye this year and is paid 10 times more. I think we're doing OK.

Okung deserves some props too

Well said.  That trade is looking brilliant right now.

With both, we could control the clock and keep those high flying teams on the sidelines and give us an chance to pull an upset.

I want to see this.  Davis has proven he needs some pt.  Him and cmc together could be special though.
