Thanks for sharing. Two guys that you did not mention that I recall prominently from the Cubs are Shawon Dunston, the SS from the mid-late "80s and '90s teams and Mitch Williams, "Wild Thing". I always felt confident that the Mets could mount a rally in the bottom of the ninth against Williams.
Grigson's favourite! See: Andre Johnson, DQ, Trent Cole
The problem there is an elite CB doesn't do much for you when you don't have a pass rush. No DB can cover forever. If the opposing QB has enough time to scan the field, he can either avoid your elite CB and still move the chains, or he can simply wait until his WR beats your elite CB. This is not a knock on Vontae at all, as I do think he's an elite CB when he's healthy. But no DB can cover a receiver forever. If the play goes on and the QB isn't under pressure, he can scramble around until his receiver eventually gets open.
Going through positions groups I'll pick some players out.
Langford good, but not as good as last year - keep him
Kerr good, best year so far, sign to extension right away
Ridgeway decent, started off improving every week but seemed to hit a bump last 3 weeks, still wait and see
Jones still waiting, ask me in 2 games
McGill great and bad, 100% sure if it's a pass I want him in there, wait till end of year to see if he does better with his assignment
Anderson wait and see, still watching his rookie highlights
Mathis not sure if it's age or injury, never schemed for him before to get qb, sign him 1 more year at discount
Walden not sure if he's doing better or Mathis making him look better, future contract wait and see
Maggitt 1 trick pony so far, need something else besides bull rush this isn't college, see who we get next year.
Ayers improving every game, so get his asking price at end of year
Jackson looks better with Freeman not beside, pretty sure it's cause Freeman is that good.
Morrison same as Ridgeway, needs more reps to figure this one out.
Edwin optimistic still want to see more reps.
McNary gone, I had more hope during his rookie year than I do now
I'll do other position groups at another time, dinner ready.
While I admit I am not a MLB fan and cant really sit through a whole game without falling asleep I will cross my fingers for you.
Don't get me wrong as I love to go to a live MLB game and see all the action but something about the TV that puts me asleep.
