Bucky Brooks won't be sucked into Mac's meteoric rise


Recommended Posts

I still don’t get why Jones is considered this read savant and cerebral QB better than Fields and Lance. How often was he under pressure and Smith not wide open?

Look at this second pro day. Damn sure seems like he got the weak arm under his skin and made terrible overthrows. How is that cerebral? Seems like he didn’t take the criticism well and tried to prove people wrong and just made their argument stronger.

I still hope that SF takes him. That would be the best thing that happens aside from the Jets going Sewell.

I dont agree with Bucky on much of anything, but I do here.

Very very simply- RPO. If jones does RPO, ZERO respect form the defensive. ZERO. If Lance or Fields do RPO the defensives must account for it. RPO is a staple in college and more than a few NFL run it as well. Well the D may fall down in laughter form Jones during a RPO, so he may get some yards after all.

That comparison is idiotic too as Tony didn't just find some suit or stone he made that poo along with a super AI. Superhuman intelligence is easily the best "super power" and that's what makes him able to stand along side the people with fleeting physical abilities.

Can't even nerd right, this is why it's hilarious to watch nerd culture become main stream. At least the bandwagoning media is consistently incompetent with anything they try to latch onto.

BB doesn't exactly rep NC well with his history of QB evals either...don't claim Raleigh with those predictions on your resume man.

I'm not saying the guy is Brady ...but his physique is young Brady and many of his weaknesses are 6th round Brady esq. However the odds of him being another Brady are astronomical but I see combine Brady every time I see the guy

I just can't get over the title of this thread. "meteoric rise" ( no offense intended at the poster)

I'm pretty sure meteors don't rise but fall.

Secondly, I tend to stop reading anything once I see the words "Bucky Brooks".

Especially when it comes to QBs. He's terrible and he has an agenda that he promotes when it comes to QB evaluations. He's all about athleticism. If it were up to him, no kid that couldn't post a 4.60 or better would even be allowed to listed as a QB and half of the NFL would be running the Ravens' offense.

I thought the same thing about "meteoric rise", but it is a thing (as in a legit normally used term)!

https://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/example/english/meteoric-rise 

Think "sudden and brief" and maybe "brilliant"!

It is akin to an oxymoron of sorts though, but not in the classic sense of the definition which usually involves an adjective followed by a noun (e.g., "Cam winning the Super Bowl with the Patriots would make many Huddlers feel sweet sorrow").

Ah, didn't know that. Yeah definitely seems like an oxymoron.

People who know Shanahan say Mac is his ideal QB. 
 

I really don’t get it.

It's because coaches like Shanahan believe in their own system so much that they just need a guy to do as their told. They prefer a QB to run the "system" than a qb who can improvise. 

Thats the double headed sword of the QB position. Take a guy who can make every play on a whim. Or Take a guy who will make the play that's expected, no more or no less.

I as my own arm chair GM will lean towards the athletes any day of the week. But guys like Drew Brees and Tom Brady counter that argument pretty strongly. Neither of which were star athletes in terms of underwear sports.

It's funny because of the ridiculous situation. Jones going 3rd for a mammoth haul? What could go wrong...

Brooks isn't some great talent evaluator, he is just an ex-player doing mocks in the offseason filling dead air. Pretty much entertainment value only.

What exactly is Brooks not buying in to?  A meteoric rise suggests something gets instant dramatic attention but disappears quickly. Jones already got the first part of that. Is he saying Jones won't disappear?  Whether he's good or not this rise can affect the draft.
