Looking For The Positives

Excellent article and I have to say I agree with pretty much all of it, except that I really don't like Garcon all that much.

I particularly agree with the point made about Angerer and Conner, those two look excellent and in the future we may have two of the league's better linebackers.

Why do you not like the guy? Sure he drops a few balls from time to time, but he is our most physical WR, our only home run hitter, and has been the only receiver to actually show up since Manning went down. Guys like Clark and Collie have completely no showed this season.

If Ilajana can come back and live up to expectations last years draft class paired with next years draft class could do some real damage.

I still do not understand why we are not leaning on the running game more. Carter should get a majority of the carries, but DB should be in there for screens, draws, and other running plays that is designed to get him into space where he is really good at. We act like Peyton is still out there and throw and throw and throw some more. Stop throwing so darn much and run the ball Clyde!

Delone Carter is the real deal. Angerer rocks. The biggest advantage of this season tanking, is the Colts will be drafting 1st, 2d or 3d in the 2012 draft. Hopefully they trade down and gets lots of extra picks. There are so many holes to fill, one draft won't fix all the problems.

I didn't see yesterday's game because of my west coast location - but how about Chris Johsnon again doing nothing in the running game. Total running was 94 yards. If our defense could stop a few pass plays they would be competivie. It also looks like we passed for more yards and ran for more yards than the Titans. Obviously we are using the wrong measurement (points scored) to decide who wins.

    • Edge Austin Booker (Kansas) – Was the most productive pass-rushers this season earning an 83.6 pass-rush grade.  25 total pressures and 6 sacks with a 16.6% pass-rush win rate.  Had him with a Round 2 grade for a while now.   OL Cooper Beebe (Kansas State) – Jack of all trades OL No matter where Cooper Beebe lines up, he produces elite play. At right tackle in 2020, he was a PFF honorable mention All-Big 12 honoree. As a left tackle in 2021, he was named first-team All-Big 12. In 2022 at left guard, Beebe was a second-team All-American.  Beebe's 94.0 pass-blocking grade over the past two seasons led all offensive linemen in college football. During that span, he didn’t allow a sack on 770 pass-blocking snaps.  Beebe is the only FBS guard who ranks in the top five in both PB (4th) and RB (2nd).  He still hasn’t allowed a sack since the 2020 season. 2023 earned college football midseason all-America First Team.  After 9 weeks leads all offensive guards with an overall 83.9 PFF grade who is top 3 in both pass-blocking (3rd) and run-blocking (2nd).  Beebe hasn’t allowed a sack since 2020.  To me got that borderline Round 1-2 grade.   Beebe might sneak late into Round 1 much like Cole Strange (Patriots) in 2022. 
    • I think you’re a little off on saying grades in the 60’s are for backups.   Without even looking I can say with confidence that all 32 teams have starters with grades in the 60’s.      In other words, it’s not the 90’s are an A, the 80’s are a B, the 70’s are a C and the 60’s a D.   PFF grades don’t work that way at all.   If you’ll notice, any player with grades in the 60’s have a light green color.  The 70’s have a darker green color.   Green is a starter level grade.   Honestly, I’ve seen some players who start have grades in the 50’s.   It happens.   You just don’t want it too often.     Hope that clarifies.   If you have questions I’m always here.    
    • Adebawore is fast.  Still wonder if he may be better suited to drop 25 pounds and move to linebacker (SLB).  Really not a big shocker to see defensive lineman struggle within years 1-2 before they do well but not often the case. 
    • Yeah Franklin Pff grade is 60.9 and EJ Speed is 65. Which 60-69 is considered a grade you would expect from a backup.  Now I don’t always agree with their grades, it does reflect how I have seen them play, they are good backups but we need starters. 
    • Off the top of my head, the Bears gave up two 3’s and a 4.   Might’ve been one 3, and two 4’s.   The points are the difference at the top of the draft when a team is moving up from 3 to 2.     As for everything else, we’ll just agree to disagree.
