Some good roster analysis from Gantt

You definitely haven't seen Sam Darnold play, I take it?

I mean that Rhule quote from the Rich Eisen show puts it into context - and is what I saw too. In the games I've watched him play there's two or three 'sit up in your chair' moments per game from him. Plays that only the elite QBs make.

It's up to Rhule / Fitterer to surround him with talent and for Rhule / Brady to coax more of that out of him - and eliminate the mistakes. 

I'd love to have a better Oline (this is the reason Allen made his big stride), but maybe we find 5 guys that work together as a unit this TC - we certainly have enough NFL calibre bodies to throw at the problem.

You worry too much.  Have a beer man, cmc and hubba hubba is going to run the hell out of the ball anyway.  I'm telling you it's going to be alright.

The more I watch Chuba Hubbard, the more he reminds me of McCaffrey.

He's not so much a change of pace back, as he's very similar (on a tier or two below though, obviously), he's there to spell McCaffrey.

We've definitely committed to the Zone running scheme though - there isn't a Power back on our roster.

They will run the ball a lot this season you can count on that.  They would take some pressure off Sam early to ease him into a rhythm.  Or they could come out slinging it all over the damn place and blow us all away.

I'm betting it's the former.

The annoying thing is Rhule is very professional and careful in his interviews - he thinks Fields and Jones are 'great players', but I do wonder what the behind the scenes view of them really was.

He coached Jones for a week at the Senior Bowl - he passed on the kid, so evidently he thinks Darnold is better. Fields is more difficult to evaluate in that sense.

I wouldn’t necessarily say that. He views Darnold and Horn as a better investment in this team’s future than Darnold and Jones/Fields. If you stay with just Darnold (like we did) you also get Horn. Which makes sense to me assuming they believe in Darnold ( which they clearly do).

  7-10 ... 8-9

Talk to me after game 1.  The final roster will tell us who we have to go to war with. Game 1 should give us an idea of how many battles they will win.

We did. Like it or not, we came back with Cam Erving. 

 

I know and this is my concern. My only hope is Moton can slide over to LT and produce at near the same level. This would be amazing.
