Obviously not happy that Tolzein can't seem to get anything going for us (though its not completely his fault) but glad that our defense is getting a lot of snaps out there. More reps the better for the first and second string guys, especially the rookies on those projected lines.

Wilson was fine on those two plays. Yes he got "beat" on both and yes the receiver ended up with a TD but you can't expect a rookie CB to come in perfect in his first game. He was tight on his man on both occasions, the receiver just had the better execution.

Quincy doesn't look for the ball :(


He is likely not taught that yet.  I think they want him to watch receivers hands after receiver looks back.  When receivers hands go up to catch, DB is to ram his hand up between the receivers hand and breakup the pass.  Not look back and try to high point an interception.

    • I think Young and Stroud come off the board at 1 and 2. Young could be the next Drew Brees or he could be the next Murray. Stroud has all the tools, but why would he say that he admires Vick and Watson? Has he been oblivious to everything? As a GM, that would concern the hell out of me.    That leaves Levis, Hooker, and Richardson.    Hooker is the most polished of the 3, and I really like his pocket mobility. There are times when he doesn’t see the rush, but it’s a similar issue I noticed early with Aaron Rodgers, and he can overcame it. Hooker can be very accurate, but he lacks anticipation. Has a strong enough arm, and wheels. While it is not an exact carbon copy, I see a lot of Daniel Jones in Hooker. And he will have the same hurdles in the NFL. But the potential is there.    Levis has a huge upside. Strong arm and mobile enough. He is very cocky though. It might be hard to teach this guy how to leave his ego at the door of the quarterback room. Guys like this tend to have leadership issues. People can overcome this, but they normally don’t. If he can then his upside is similar to Josh Allen.    Richardson is very raw, and he is one of the most inaccurate quarterbacks I’ve ever seen mentioned as a top 5 pick. He is an athletic freak. One rule to always remember is, you are either born with accuracy or you’re not. This is not something people usually improve drastically with. I think he is going to struggle in the NFL, and it’s all going to linked to his ability to put the football in the right place.    If Levis is off the board, then I’m taking BPA or bouncing out of that 4th pick. And there would need to be some very good interviews with Levis, to convince me that he is the guy.    I would most likely either make a path to get Hooker, or arrange a deal for Lamar. And if all else fails, I’d be okay to ride with Minshew in 23. 
    • Tackle?      Raimann is the LT.  Smith is the RT.   I think the only way that changes is if either gets hurt.      The Colts will likely look for a swing tackle.  A solid backup.   But my guess is that will be in free agency. 
    • That would be a negatory big Ben. See no es comprende. Imposseble'  Or something like that.
    • Okay, Okay. Let’s say hypothetically the Ravens KNOW they won’t keep Lamar. Wait and see how the draft falls. If Arizona trades out and Will Anderson is available take him. And then see if we can entice them to give us Lamar for our 2nd and 4th or something and then our 1st and 3rd next year. We get a top flight pass rusher and a former MVP in his prime. *shrug*
    • Yeah for sure, you've acknowledged the risk. But I think your prospect preference makes you an outlier, especially if we're comparing to NFL decision makers, who are historically risk averse.   And I think a team with a middling QB has a better situation than a team with a totally non performing QB. Both teams still need to find a new QB, but the team with the mid guy can still run a competent offense and develop the rest of their roster.    And this is also why I want to really analyze the athletic QB thing in recent years. I agree that offenses have evolved and are doing a much better job of utilizing QB athleticism, and that makes it easier to develop a guy who is more raw as a passer. But I think maybe the necessity and overall value of a QB who can consistently make plays with his legs is starting to be overstated. Take Stroud, I think his level of athleticism is good enough to be a franchise QB. And I'm not the guy overreacting to the Georgia game; I'm not super impressed by how he ran in that game. Still have questions about how he'll handle poor OL play. I know if you're not dynamic with your legs, you must be excellent from the pocket, but I think you probably have to be excellent from the pocket anyway.
