Rashawn Slater named 2nd team All-Pro at LT

Very true, but it was completely unnecessary to say in that interview. It was essentially doubling down on their initial (wrong) assessment of his skillset, which not only makes him look bad, it makes the scouting look incompetent. "Didn't want to draft a guard that high" Implies they would have played him out of position had they actually drafted him instead of sticking him at LT where he has shown out. It basically says what they did to BC this season, they would have done to Slater too, and that just makes them look foolish.

He could have avoided the ire by saying, "Slater is a great player too, he was on our board but we just had Jaycee Higher."

That's it. that's all he had to say. 

Yeah the thing is everyone makes mistakes in the draft.  But not everyone tries to make it sound like they actually weren't wrong etc.  It's okay to like one player over another but you don't need to come off like an idiot in saying that.  Horn may very well be a better pick long-term. That will never justify rhules comments lol

But would he have been as good with the Panthers? Maybe they would have played him at LG instead of his ideal location. Or maybe they would have played Slater in a different position every week. Brady was played in 4-different positions this year. Nobody could be successful like that. 
I still think one of the reasons (certainly not the only) the Oline was bad was due to a bad scheme. A bad scheme makes even the best players look bad. The entire offense was terrible and out of sink.

Right but everything you're saying is no different from "Rhule is fuging incompetent" which is true of the explanation he gave as well as the personnel choices he makes on the field.

Horn may very well be a better player and a better fit, but he had to go stuff his foot in his mouth anyway. He just comes off as having no clue what he's doing or saying often lately.

    • I personally think they should have moved Pride to Safety.  Plays well in soft zone coverage (facing the QB, in other words) and he has some speed and size.  Oh well.
    • well, he needs more than that.  He needs playcalling.   You can have a decent OL and talent....but if you are running a predictable and unimaginative O then your talent basically all gets downgraded.  McAdoo still has some legit redflags.  While Eli did have 2 great statistical seasons while he was OC,  McAdoo's head coaching tenure was defined by predictable and very unimaginative offense.   So there still are some question marks on if Eli (a SuperBowl/Pro Bowl ) QB simply took advatnage of OBJ being an intital problem for folks to cover and it not being create actual playcalling and scheme.   And it also makes me nervous the league almost deemed him unemployable until we gave him this OC job.  Heck, if Matt Rhule said no thanks to Ben twice being his QB coach.....then suddently his is good enough to be OC. 
    • Schuyler Callihan chimed in with a rookie Camp observation as well... They really didn't throw the ball downfield much with Corral over the weekend. It was a lot of underneath stuff and some play-action that had him rolling to both sides. When he did stand firm in the pocket, he looked comfortable. The five and seven step drops are something that will take some time for him to get used to, but this offense will primarily run out of the gun anyway. On tape, Corral had one of the quickest releases I've seen. In person, it looked even quicker. It's a natural, effortless motion that is something I haven't seen before. He was very accurate with the ball and on the few shots they did take downfield, he put it right on the money.  Link Not sure about the shotgun thing. I don't remember enough about McAdoo's offense to know if that's true. Callihan did also have this to say about first round pick Ikem Ekwonu's camp... Ekwonu already looks the part. It's easy to see why everyone in the Panthers' building calls him a tone-setter. There were a couple of times that he nearly ran the guy (another lineman) holding the pad into the ground. He's just a massive human being who has tremendous strength. He'll be starting at left tackle from day one.
