Rookie Camp - Day Two


Recommended Posts

Hey y'all.  Been forever since I posted here.  Last football season too much of my spare time was focused on Covid  or politics. Football got squeezed out.

Don't really have anything insightful to contribute about rookie mini-camp, but so glad it's happening!!

Make sure to catch Matt Rhule's presser today (and yesterday was good too). He had some fascinating comments about sports science and player evaluation. Basically last year's lack of mini-camp etc. meant that they were still learning about players' abilities when the games counted. I believe it was a huge obstacle for a totally new staff. 

The evaluation process Rhule described today sounds really different from what we typically heard from Ron.  This was the best Rhule presser I've heard...he was just so focused and so beyond just normal coach-speak platitudes. Gave me a much better feel for him, and I liked what I heard.

 

 

hey girl!  so good to see you back!  You have been missed.  Hope you find the time to post more often.  Missed your stat skills.

I think Tommy needs a little work but this is important for the coaches to see what we can can't do well early enough to make corrections.

Yea I wasn’t impressed with those clips. Lots of work to do as a receiver

Hell yeah. We need some stat nerd backup in here.

I think lots of people aren't reading the details of the Kittle comparisons. The comparison is guys who didn't produce much in college that were taken in the mid rounds because they projected well as pros. Both were known as blockers who played more of the H back position than true TE.

Tremble had a higher draft grade than Kittle.

Do y'all read this stuff before reacting?

This, actually who gives a poo on comparison?

quote me, bro. I did read and did understand. I know about projection, still its the same thinking as "QB will be like Tom Brady 2.0" derp derp derpa. You know that Kittle is beyond real odds with how his development took off?? Saying that will happen again is like the same lotto numbers hitting, but it could happen..... But dont mind me, I do honestly hate to bring down panthers fan being over the moon on players. Plus who am I kidding, Ive seen the Brady comp plenty. Kittle 2.78234 confirmed!

You mean how some compared Fields to Mahomes? 

I don't think it is a far fetched Idea that Tremble could be compared to Kittle.  As noted, he came from a similar situation and is rated as a better prospect than Kittle coming out of college.  He was also rated as he 2nd best TE coming out of this draft.  (At least on a few of the pundits.)

Every year basically every player coming out of the draft is compared to a current NFL player.  Some pan out to be as advertised.  Some don't.   I'll put my cap on as advertised.

If Brady uses him properly and he shows he was under utilized at ND we could have 5 amazing targets on the field at the same time.  Imagine Moore, Anderson, Marshall, Tremble and CMC going out for passes.  Someone is going to be open or at minimum one on one.

After the draft: he’s real athletic and we got a left tackle in the 3rd that we were going to take in the 2nd

 

After the first two days of minicamp: he’s an elite guard

 

After 2 years of not being on the field

 

We read Marty Hurneys report by mistake

 

Hope i'm wrong but he does look like a Hurney pick

Heck, seeing @KB_fan back already makes this season better than last!

I mean they've no idea yet.

It's not like he's lined up across from Burns and been roasted. He's going through basic drills and undergoing the start of the offensive gameplan install.

They'll know what they have in August. And I'd take an elite G any day of the week if that's what he turns into.

    • You are spot on. I have been in favor of the Darnold trade since we made it. In part because I didn’t want to give up multiple 1st round picks for a QB (Watson, Stafford or a rookie) and in part because I think with Darnold the talent is clearly there. He wasn’t good with the Jets but he still had a highlight reel you could look at and say “wow, this dude has a very accurate arm, can make every throw and is surprisingly mobile”  I’ve been saying all along that I thought Darnold would have been the 2nd QB taken in this years draft. And look at how bad Zach Wilson is struggling in NY now. There were a lot of huddlers riding his hype train, some suggesting we trade 3 first rounders to get him. I think we may have gotten a better QB for a 2nd. There’s a long way to go, but Darnold never had a fair shot in NY and Wilson doesn’t now either. There was a loud mob on here insisting he just wasn’t that good and if he was he would have been more successful with the Jets. So far he is proving them wrong and I couldn’t be happier about it.
    • I heard 2 ESPN NFL analysts call the Panthers the number 1 defense in the league without any disclaimers and followed by heavy praise. I'd say we put some people on notice with that win against the Saints.
    • not gonna start a new thread for this because I don't have a link so I'll put it here.  Saw this on another board. "Horn has only been targeted 5 times and has only allowed 2 receptions for 18 yards through his first 2 games." Rookie is already close to a shutdown corner.     DJax is tackling like a fiend, and now add a very good nickel... things that make you go hmmm
