Reminds Me Of Jerry Hughes Situation

Recommended Posts

See, the thing about Hughes is he isn't going to get on the field in favor of Freeney or Mathis very often. We use a tandem at the DE position. Anderson and Brayton play more on run downs. Freeney and Mathis play more on pass downs. All of those DEs get plenty of breathers. It's not like we need to give Freeney a breather when he only plays half the defensive plays. I'm still not ready to give up on Hughes because when I watch him, he gives a good push up front, he's fast, and he holds his gap well. He will make Mathis expendable next year. Could his draft pick have been used on someone better? Of course, but it doesn't make him a bust yet. Brown is a bust, always has been a bust, and always will be a bust.

Hughes has done zero for this team. Less than that in fact. He'll be cut before next season. Brown has had some (limited) success. Your blind 'love' for Hughes is....er.....blind. Whether they are good or not only points to the fact that we did not need these positional players, and the Polian Company and Sons completely screwed up. At least we needed a LT, but picked the wrong guy.

Sorry, slided off topic there....

I found the stats and it said he had two tackles, did he get much time in the game? Did he put much pressure on the qb?

He saw some action in the 4th quarter. He probably played around 4-6 minutes in the game which is good time for him. One of those tackles was for a loss and it was a 4 or 5 yard loss. Looked decent.

    • I don't think you know how the HOF works. By using your logic guys like Barry Sanders, Anthony Munoz and Bruce Matthews don't deserve to be there. 
    • Here go the lemmings off the cliff.......
    • I was a Huge Colts fan on a Sunday back in early February of 2007 just for one day.
    • Dreaming of division title was fun while it lasted lol. They said half the ravens PS is eligible to be called up Sunday. Lol. Guess it could be worse. Carrie should be ok filling in for rock if he goes on the covid list. But it hurts our depth. Odum can probably fill in ok for Blackman too. But we better hope we don’t have any injuries during the game. Offense needs to be on fire and just dream them. If they let the titans stay on the field for long drives we will be exhausted by the end of the game. The only good news is the titans lost their star LB and are down to their third LY. This might end up being a high scoring shootout.   Lets hope Autry can come back Sunday. Anyone remember when he was placed on the list.
    • Regardless of what you say. I don’t wanted argue. I have a good feeling we’ll be fine Sunday. Again what you said is asinine to not count points regardless of how we got them. The special teams is ranked 2nd or 5th I believe. That may also have something to do with it. Last Sunday was even evident to how good our Special Teams are.
