  1. Adldai was an SEC backup. Polian saw potential in him, plus he liked the fact there wasn't much wear and tear. Great guy, great blocker, but Rhodes hit the hole harder and faster while Adlai had that studder step that never worked.
  2. Hairston in the slot seems sounds like a sleeper pick to me.
  3. When fans think they need the best coach in order to win championships, I think of Bobby Knight at Texas Tech or Larry Brown wherever he plays or Don Shula and Jimmy Johnson for the Dolphins. All of those coaches won championships with talented teams but couldn't without talent. I say we Assemble the Avengers Front office and scout team and let's become the most talented team. Then let's see what happens.
  4. the new punter/kick off guy will be impactful either positively or negatively. Hopefully he doesn't have to punt much this year
  5. It was said this draft was so deep for the RBs, that teams could get 1st - 2nd round talent in Later rounds and we took advantage of that.
  6. Frank Gore, Ken Griffey and. Lincoln Kennedy.....I know Ballard is using anslytics, but I didn't know DNA was Factored in.
  7. I think Banner has the potential to be really good and it isn't strength, conditioning and diet I worry about. I worry that he has the big mans lazy gene. If so, he will never make it. I heard a basketball scout say a lot of big guys really don't love basketball but they have the body and the opportunity and it pays well.
  8. If you are a great college back and there is no hole between the tackles, You break outside. Pros do that too...I agree it's overblown....now, picking up blitzes and blocking? They all have a tough time learning that.
  9. Thanks, Mr. Irsay. Now......Avengers assemble!!!
  10. Yeah, I picked up on that as well, but I don't know the answer.
  11. Especially since players are always using military phrases like "going to battle"....."He is our field general out there"....leadership....just tons of that jargon. This is one crazy good offseason.
  12. Surely, there is something redeemable about the player.
  13. My pet peeve is calling someone garbage....nobody needs to be called garbage. It's more indicative of your personality than it is the players value.
  14. So Deckers process will also weed out players who don't really love football, but they do it to make big money for their family. Lots of people in real life fall in this category. Just curious about the psychology of his models.
  15. Decker and Ballard seem similar in their approach. It might be a good fit. That was a really interesting article.
