For all the Brady Christensen fans....


Recommended Posts

The 4 Man Rush does a little film breakdown on him with Mike Wahle. 

Go to about the 47 min mark if you want to skip the playoff talk. Hit up about 45 min if you want to see Mike laughing his ass off at picking a long snapper in the 6th.

Anyway, more evidence of how bad our coaching and talent evaluation is.

I enjoyed the commentary but didn’t get to listen to all of it. 
 

What’s your beef with talent evaluation of Brady? Seems most they were discussing is technique that needs to be corrected. He looked solid for a 3rd round rookie OL.

I’m assuming it was the fact we didn’t give him a chance almost all season while shuffling him around the line and starting terrible vets over him. Brady could be a nice pick considering where we drafted him.

Which is what a lot of us have been saying. We should have a much better idea had we actually played the kid more. Instead we have a... well, maybe?

Same with Deonte. So many opportunities, particularly with all the garbage time toward the end of the season, and yet here we are

Once the staff saw how poorly the LT played Brady should have been plugged in to see if he could man the position. We'd have a much better idea on his future at that spot had we done this. It's common sense, if you draft a LT...and the guy who plays in front of him is below average, then play the guy you drafted to see is he is better.

If Rhule was absolutely convinced that Brady's arms were an inch to short to play LT 🙄, then at worst he should have been started at LG for the majority of the season. If he proved capable (or incapable), at least you'd know which positions to address in the off-season.

The thing that bothers me the most about last season was our inability to develop our rookie class. Jaycee's injury was unavoidable so he gets a pass. Chubba was the only one who really had an impact this year, and that only happened because Christian was hurt most of the season. If you subtracted every other rookie's contribution in 2021 (with the possible exception of Brady filling in all over the O-line) it wouldn't have had a significant impact on our final record. That's telling since we had a league high 11 draft choices for a rebuilding team

All I got out of it was . . . coaching may have been lacking, and there is something there that may develop.

Same. The comments about setting practice session time were really interesting too, especially in light of the things Teddy Bridgewater said a while back.

Wahle was pretty specific about Christensen's technique issues. You'd think an NFL level coach would have seen that. And if you're having the same issues with other players, that points further to coaching.

Basically, Pat Meyer deserved to be let go, but it's still on Rhule for hiring him in the first place, especially given he has experience at that job.

Evaluation and coaching issues. And its really obvious. BC has no business being anywhere on the line other than LT. He either starts at LT or he's the back up. His technique just doesn't translate to G. If the staff would seen this sooner, they could've/should've started him at LT earlier.

not all lineman are ready to start 17 games at 75 snaps a game.  Perhaps they want him to build phisique and confindence before they throw him to the wolves.  

 

You might be right except for the reality that when he played he was clearly our best LT option and Rhule and company still made every effort not to continue playing him at LT despite this.

Still bugs me that we had a shot to make a run at James Campen last year but went after Pat Meyer instead.

Hope we have a chance to correct that since Campen has history with McAdoo and the coaching staff in Houston is unsettled. 🤞
