Great stuff...something we haven't had on D in a while...guys who can really impact the ball and create those turnovers. But as you say at the end it's too bad we don't have a staff that really knows how use a player to strengths and maximize his potential.
Its funny looking at Quincy, he is only 20 years old, but he looks about 14 lol. He is a baby a NFL level, probably in the top 20 youngest players. So much potential there, Im starting to really love the pick.
Look, one more thing. I know that Pagano has been here a long time and probably got some of his players too with Grigson. But I sense that Ballard is a much more sound counterweight to Pagano that Grigson ever was. I'm not sure Ballard would have picked Green in the second round last year, just a gut feeling. I know Pagano loved that pick.
One final, and interesting, point: Ballard is not building a defense for Pagano. He might be gone next year. But he is building a defense for Monachino. That might sound contradictory now, but let's see how this plays out. I think Ballard has a clear plan B in place if Pagano doesn't work out.
Look, I get your point, but I got this gut feeling that Ballard and Pagano/Monachino is on the same page.
You have to remember that the players that Monachino inherited might not have been a great fit for his way of thinking, his scheme, his defensive philosophy. I distinctly remember Monachino talking about having players think less in terms of complex scheme and more about instincts and just plain getting at the ball. Look at what we have added.
It is much easier to coach a player up when he is a fit, and the weaknesses are a fit too, in relation to want you think you can mold.
lady that made the video was looking for chargers fans who were looking for a new team, and she talked to my friend who knew my story...was interviewed yesterday on one of the local sports talk stations too.
