    Rock Ya-Sin, just because I would've rather had Greedy Williams/Taylor Rapp/AJ Brown


    Marvin Tell. He has potential with his range...him and Hooker on the field could be trouble.


    N'Keal Harry or Ed Oliver


    Greedy Williams/Taylor Rapp


    Shakail Taylor/Ashton Dulin



  2. 1. Landon Collins - perfect fit for this defense, perfect timing for the both the team and player, chance to make up for Grigs drafting Dorsett over Collins smh


    2. Trey Flowers - another perfect match. Flowers has championship experience and fits the defense. nuff said 


    3. Tyrell Williams - perfect #2 for Hilton. Hilton/Williams/Inman/Cain would be a very solid group. 


    4. DeSean Jackson - he would tear up defenses with Luck throwing the ball. Hilton + Jackson on the field at the same time would open things up for the rest of the offense.


    5. Le'Veon Bell - I don't think he would be a match for the money he rightfully wants and I don't think he'd be the best fit for the locker room, but it's fun to imagine Bell, Hilton and Ebron on the same team. I don't think they would be able to be stopped.

     Any idea why he got kicked out of Penn State? 
     And of course we will get endless garbage threads like this pre-draft.

    He got kicked out of Penn State for "physically assaulting" a cashier who stopped him from stealing.  He was acquitted for the rape accusation at Baylor.


    I think it'd be worth taking a look, although he had poor draft stock even before the case.

    But has Hooker been tested very much this season AFTER coming off the ACL?  I can't believe that good QBs are giving up the field without even testing his speed every so often, simply judging him on what he did pre injury.  The popular notion that he lacks stats because QBs don't want to test him seems a bit fluffy to me.  I think it has more to do with our coverages and the rest of the defense than Hooker himself.


    Also, Hooker is not known as a tackling machine.  Maybe the way teams are choosing to play him is to throw it underneath and force him to make a tackle.  Not that he's bad.  That would be choosing to exploit a weakness more so than fear of throwing it deep.  Just another thought.


    It looks like Wilcox's history is that he tends to be good enough to start, but then teams upgrade his position  with a higher profile FA or draft pick the next year.  He's always produced good tackling stats, but it appears he lacks that extra quality in the passing game.  Seems like a decent zone defense DB.  I think he's played with Eberflus in Dallas and Mike Mitchell in Pitt.


  5. Mack is really going to be something special. I think Hines and Wilkins compliment each other nicely, Wilkins just needs to quit putting the ball on the ground. 


    I still think we beat KC if we utilized our backs correctly, i.e. screens, tosses, swing passes. The pass rush was negating the WRs but NE showed exactly how to deal with that. Mack would've torched that defense.

    I dont know if we will see another QB who is actually the OC.  Brady might do some but Peyton was on another level calling his own plays.

    Idk, Baker Mayfield did some next level stuff last season



    not saying he's going to be as good as Peyton but he's got some game in him.

    One of the most underappreciated guys on our defense is Mathias Farley. If he was healthy this year, we would have had very solid Safety depth and I think would have improved the overall play of our defense. He's not a pro bowler or a game changer, but he's one of those dependable guys that will at the very least execute consistently and make a good play every now and then.


    I think lost in the midst of our divisional round hype, was the health of the secondary. Fairley went down, Mitchell got hurt, we eventually lost Hooker....It's amazing that Mahomes didn't absolutely kill us deep. We paid for it dearly for it over the middle, however.

    Loved that guy.  I’m glad he got paid, he wasn’t going to get that contract here.  Hard to believe he’s still playing.



    I always believed Bethea/Sanders had the potential to be one of the GOAT safety tandems. Unfortunately, you know Sanders was often hurt himself. Bethea always did his job, a very good player.

    With that said there's plenty of blame to go around. Where the heck was the defense? They got trashed the entire first half. Including Leonard. He got wrecked, manhandled and looked lost most times

    yeah but then in second half Leonard and Moore were all over the place making plays.



    Where was the offense?

  10. The first drive ended on a big drop by Ebron on third down.


    It seemed like every drive after that ended because Luck's passes kept getting batted down.



    WHY DIDN'T WE RUN THE BALL OR THROW SCREENS? WHERE WAS THE NO HUDDLE? If the pass rush keeps impacting the pass game, why wouldn't you slow them down with a screen play? Why didn't Hines get more plays? Why did we abandon the north/south run game and keep failing to go horizontal?



    I realize this is Reich's first year but jfc. He's made terrific playcalls from the 6th game until now. The craziest thing is the defense made plays despite giving up 4th and short repeatedly. All we had to do was run the ball and stifle the pass rush. What a terrible effort from the entire offense.

    And I'm pointing out the flaws in calling him a poor coach.  Or "trash" as someone else said.


    He was average at worst.  Average at best.


    He was an average coach.  But a good dude.  I liked him.  Still do.  But I'm glad we have Reich now.  :thmup:


    He was a below average coach. An average  head coach can do more than simply motivate the team.

    Lucky was just trying to lighten it up and now you are trying to argue with him?


    I'm not arguing with Lucky as much as I'm pointing out the flaws in supporting Pagano.



    Please stop quoting me.

    Maybe he wasn't a great Xs and Os HC, but he was a great motivator as a HC.


    He was a good enough HC to win his fair share of games.  He was also a bad enough HC to lose his job.


    No denying he is a likable guy.  Good Luck to him in Chicago.  :thmup:

    He was such a great motivator that he was able to motivate his teams into starting slow....?
