random thoughts from todays game


Recommended Posts

1. Zbi is not playing well so far this year

2. Vaughan got picked on today, not as strong as last week

3. Donald Brown is by far our best RB

4. Hughes played well today. The commentators were saying his name all day (in a good way)

5. Front three of D line was awful. Really need talent infusion there

6. WR play was not great. Receivers didn't make tough catches at all

7. O line needs to keep the pocket clean

8. really like to see the d with mathis, davis, angerer, chapman, freeney all healthy

2. It's not like they threw to his way that much.

4. On paper, Ballard didn't have a good performance but he runs hard and he gets extra yardage that Brown wouldn't necessarily get. It's one game, but I believe that Ballard is the better in-between-the-tackles runner. So, Brown is not "by far" the best RB.

5. Cory Redding played well, unfortunately he was injured early and was on a snap count for the rest of the game.

6. The receiver play is based on the performance of the QB. The QB didn't do well today, so the receivers' performance wasn't great. I think Donnie made some nice catches and Reggie made a couple of good catches. Actually, Fleener too. Luck didn't exactly put the ball in the best place today. Considering his play, I think they did a fine job.

8. Wouldn't we all.

We can agree to disagree. I thought the Jets took advntage of Vaughan. It seemed like plenty of big plays went against him. I agree that when healthy Redding is solid but he has been hurt plenty. We still need more talent at 3-4 end. Ballard ran hard but wasn't a threat to gain big yards. Brown is a big play threat and ran well for medium gains too. I'm not saying Luck played well at all but the receivers didn't make enough tough catches. Not saying they dropped easy passes.

    • Tampa Bay stood out to me.  They are second with no apparent stars that I can recall.  Brady, Gronk, and Suh were FAs.   I thought Murray is the classic case of a team riding the trendy hype wave of athleticism in a Qb, when being able to extend a play by running sideways is only a small part of playing the position. 
    • 100%.  I don't want NE style reporting either but sometimes the Indy press corps are just not athletically inclined.
    • They could just force him to sit out, allow him to throw his temper tantrum and not report.  Maybe HOU would get lucky and he will ultimately retire from the NFL.  Making comments about the teams hiring process should be seen as "conduct detrimental to the team" since it immediately undermines the effectiveness of Culley, so they have several legal options at this point under the NFLPA.   If I'm a GM picking high in a round, I'd just start the rebuild process now by taking a QB. I wouldn't let the team be in a position like Luck put us in....having Watson failing to report to TC ore preseason AFTER the draft took place.  I'd just start with a rookie QB now.   Maybe cut Watson eventually.  Let him negotiate the contract with whatever team wants to pay him whatever price he would demand, and with whatever team wants a player with that attitude.   At this point, I would think that simply allowing Watson to sit out, stay at home, and getting no official compensation for him would still be a net win (by removing a negative).   
    • This is based off of pff rating, and they had him pretty high last year.  I have not followed the rest of their picks closely though.  He had a high QB rating too
    • I dont disagree with the fact that Ballard has his own BPA list (That is usually different than what the fans list is)   We also know that he tends to favor building the lines   I WOULD be surprised if QB was the option at this point. First as I dont see anything "special" making it to pick 21   My ONLY point is that its NOT a pure BPA,    Team Needs are taken into account in addition to BPA   They go together.....
