It'll be really interesting to see how consistent our run game will be week to week after teams begin to focus on it more. The Raiders particularly did a really good job with their gameplan against us.
No one is disputing this, what we're concerned about is the nature of his play given the amount of experience in the NFL compared to a true raw rookie.
What exactly was the trouble you referred to in your previous post?
Playing time is how you gain experience. I do think that it should all come together quicker for him if he improves because he has sat and learned.
Also I realize we added speed. My point I guess is that those two guys are rookies and not 2nd and 3rd year players. If they were I would probably be more hard on JB. Especially if they had a proven season with Luck. This offense has some of work to do so we can get those 250 yard games passing on a consistent bases. Like Reich said his perfect game is 400 yards. 250 yards passing and 150 yards rushing. I think it will be fun to see with having the bye week if we see some new things on offense. Something else I hope is that JB and Cain took some time in their week off to work together. Ballard also said Parris is learning to play outside and it didn’t help he missed all of TC.
i have never down graded hooker.
I'm talking about rating. Now whether you think the ratings are legitimate is another question. But in the rankings whether it be PFF, QBR, or PR, etc. He is bottom half. Maybe top of the bottom half, but bottom half. In other words he is a replacable player by most of these analytics.
Now we can criticize these analytics and there is a lot of wiggle room and context, but some of his supporters, namely you Chloe are a little over the top. I don't hate the guy, I just don't think he's very good.
Now what I like to do on here is armchair analyze what I think I see and debate back and forth about it. It's fun to me. I really like this kind of diversion and think it requires some higher level thinking which is good for the brain. I don't care if someone disagrees with me. For instance, you downgrade Hooker, I think that kid is a freaking stud.
