  1. Personally I wouldn't want him as he hasn't shown anything worth getting excited about.
  2. I just read a post stating that Henderson has only played about 20% of the defensive snaps. I know its early and he may yet develop into a good corner yet but looking at Arnold's play in Jacksonville, I can't help but think they made a mistake with the trade. Especially given how Darnold had already lost CM. Here are the two player's stats compared over the two games since the trade: Henderson: 6 tackles - that's it. Arnold: targeted 11 times, caught 7 (63% catch rate) for 94 yards. More importantly, 5 of those catches went for first downs. And for what it's worth, here are Anderson and Trembles' numbers during that same two game stretch: 34 targets, caught 14 ( 41% catch rate) for 128 yards with a total of 5 first downs. So basically Arnold is getting a 1st down almost half the time a pass is thrown his way while Anderson and Tremble get one every 10th pass. And if those numbers aren't bad enough, check out the article below: Again, it's early and hopefully Henderson works out but right now, I would love to have Arnold back. https://www.si.com/nfl/jaguars/news/dan-arnold-on-his-immediate-impact-influence-on-trevor-lawrence-and-that-play
  3. I don't understand why anyone would pull one play out just to make him look bad. If you want to look at a particular play, look at the last one where he sealed the edge allowing Mc to pickup the first down. Without that block, there's no way he gets it.
  4. Dang I didn't know you were at his negotiations. What else can you tell us?
  5. Pretty sure at this time of the year, just about every question is just going to a rehashed post/question as there's really nothing new to talk about. As far as click bait to his site, I personally don't have a problem with it but then I'm not on this site that much so wouldn't find it annoying. And finally, if you don't like the question/content, then just hit the back button and you can go back to looking for that original question.
  6. Thank God you didn't say Hellmanns...you get pie just for that!
  7. I'm no homer I can assure you. I like how the FO was aggressive in addressing all the needs but like you state, the odds of everyone working out are very remote. That doesn't mean that we won't be a much improved team though and I do like our chances against them much better today than last year.
  8. It means exactly that; it isn't always a good thing. I didn't never I said not always - there is a difference. Yeah they were good last year and, no doubt, will be again but I seriously doubt they were so good no changes were needed. There was a book that came out years ago call 'if it aint broke break it". Basically it preached to always challenge the status quo if you want to get better. So again, I don't believe continuity is always good.
  9. I think Tremble is the perfect TE this year given the questions concerning the OL. I can't help but wonder if they drafted him solely for his blocking. If he eventually develops into a catching TE, that would just be the icing on the cake.
  10. Continuity is not always a good thing. Age WILL eventually get to Brady and everyone will be gunning for them this year. Needless to say they will still be good but I like our chances better after the FA signings and draft.
  11. I know everyone is excited to have Tremble and expectations are high for him but for whatever reason, no one seems to be excited for Dan Arnold which is a shame. Here's a guy with a great story who produced at a high level last year in Arizona. In what was really his first year, he had 31 rec for 438 yds, 4 TD's and 24 first downs. That's one more TD than R Anderson had last year on over a 1000 yards and the same number as Moore and he had almost 1200 yrds! His 24 1st downs came on only 45 targets which means he produced a 1st down on every other pass his way. And for you stat guys, Football Outsiders ranked him as the 8th best TE last year - 8th best! I get it - the shiny new thing gets all the attention but it would be worth your time to check out Arnolds highlights. The guy is 6'6" and has a huge catch radius with great hands. I can only imagine what Brady (who worked with Arnold while in NO) can do with him and 6'3" Marshall in the red zone next season. Check out the links below to see exactly what the Panthers got with his signing. Here is a link to an article while he was in Arizona: https://raisingzona.com/2020/12/09/arizona-cardinals-tight-end-dan-arnold-underutilized/ Some youtube highlights: https://youtu.be/xbfasCAkmJc And finally here is a video that was posted earlier that should have gotten way more attention than it did: https://www.panthers.com/news/get-to-know-tight-end-dan-arnold
  12. My only concern with the draft is historically Seattle pretty much ignored the OL and it looks like we did the same thing in this draft. Seattle could get away with it given they have RW but SD is not RW. I seriously doubt SD would have any sort of success behind most of those Seattle OL's
  13. Here's a visual representation of all the trades. Personally, I think it looks great!
  14. I don't think going from 52 to 59 is going to make much of a difference in talent
  15. I posted this earlier but it looks like i get to do it again lol
  16. Saw this earlier on ESPN....more 3rd round selections actually started last year than 1st or seconds.
  17. And what have you seen to lead you to believe Fields is. The majority of all 1st rd QBs fail to become that SB caliber player so the odds of Fields becoming one are against you.
  18. You could make the same argument about pretty much any position. Andrew Luck was supposed to be a generational talent and yet the Colts never really went anywhere with him. There are few single players that can make that much of an immediate impact regardless of position.
