    • I agree. As long as it was just spot duty, I agree JB should be the back up to get us through a short term Rivers injury. If however Rivers went down for the season early, I'd prefer to see what the young guys have to offer for the future.
    • I've seen mentions of Campbell in several articles. One was on second year breakout players on O. Let's face it though, most attention will be on Pittman as a rook, and TY as the aging #1 trying to rebound from injury. I'd say more folks are talking about him than Pascal, who was our #1 last year in terms of yards.   I fully expect Campbell to perform well this year if he's healthy, as I also expect TY and Pittman to do well. If I had to name a WR that I think will surprise, or outperform expectation, I'd pick either Dulin or Fountain.
    • That data in the tweet above is surface level at best, and lacks context. Take a look at the game breakdown above. It has more to do with playing 2 top five passing teams than anything else. Winston and Brees are two top 10 QBs (#s). And having zero offense for a few of those losses also added to the stress on our D.   It also doesn't account for other injured DBs during those weeks. IIRC, Willis, Desir, Wilson, Hooker, Geathers, and Rock all missed time or were banged up during that late stretch.
    • Here's several.   At WR... 1. With the addition of Pittman, will we see Pascal running more out of the slot? 2. Who's the most likely to be the heir apparent to TY, and the #2 Z WR this year? Campbell, Fountain, or another? 3. Assuming we keep 6 WRs on the roster, what's your prediction? My way-to-early guess is TY, Pittman, Campbell, Pascal, Fountain, and Dulin.   STs 1. Hines and Dulin looked great last year when returning, are they the two early favorites? Is Rodgers in the running?   TE 1. Is this the year we see MAC break out? 2. Now that we have Pittman and Patmon, will that increased size at WR decrease 2 TE sets, and/or the utilization of TE in general?   DL 1. Will Autry end up being an every-down "flex" player, lining up at DT on passing downs, and DE on running downs? 2. Will we see more blitzing this year? Our pressure %s last year were pretty disappointing. I know Buckner will improve that number by just being on the field, but would love to see more blitzing combined with more man coverage. 3. What's your way too early prediction for DL line ups? My guess is  Passing downs - Houston-Autry-Buckner-Turay Running downs - Houston-Buckner-Stewart OR Day-Autry 4. When Turay was drafted, many saw him as better run stopper than rush DE. Did the experts totally have it wrong, or is he just a late bloomer vs the pass. And... will he become that every down DE this year? 5. Did Banogu train this off season with anyone to hone his rush skills, like Turay has done in the past?   LB 1. With the addition of Glasgow, who many see as more of a STs add, do you see a 3 man competition for 2 spots with Glasgow, Zaire, and Franklin? 2. With Oke taking over starting SAM later in the year in 2019, do you think we'll see less Nickel and more 3 LB sets to keep Leonard, Walker, and Oke on the field?   DB 1. Flus hinted that we'd see more "man" last year, but aside from the KC game (who's passing game was a bit crippled due to injury) it seemed like we were running mostly a soft C2. With the addition of Buckner, and assumed improved pass rush, will we see more man coverage? 2. Where do you project Blackmon once he returns to form? We've heard a lot of FS talk, but I see him more as a well rounded SS in our C2 defense. He comes from a "man" system, struggled at CB (before the conversion), and also struggled at FS when asked to "roam". He was a beast though tackling (that first hit vs Oregon - oh my), and covering closer to the LOS. I think he's got a higher upside than Willis at SS, but not sold on the FS talk. 3. How do the coaches view Rodgers, especially his build (HT/WT). Dynamic player, but very slight build. Do they have him on any specific S&C program to help add some good weight? I'd love to him get a shot at returns, but I'd also like to see his athleticism translate as a DB.
