It appears that way lol.  

 

Though, I am speaking more about Grant, don't think he's that good.

Should I be concerned that Brissett looks better than Luck and Wilkins looks better than all of our RBs except maybe Mack?

Didn’t see there was a problem with them but that the implementation is clumsy

 

They'll relax some in season, competition committee will tweak it over time.

It's early, not going to panic yet but yeah he's been 100% invisible.

We just need to temper expectations for Luck early on. Rust is a real thing.

I can't argue that from what I've seen tonight.

If it s helmet to helmet, D will get flag because RB is determined to be going into protect mode. D never is in defenseless position, thus never ion protect mode.  They are in strike mode.

 

If a offensive player lowers his head and goes forward they are in strict mode.

Ridgeway. Simon. Leonard. Geathers. Hooker. We’ve got some potential out there. And I didn’t mention Autry or Sheard.

Not in QB sneak mode, or if defender lowers as well.  It's like baseball, tie goes to the runner,  helmet to helmet goes to the offense (D gets penalty).  It has to be offense with head into defender (but not his helmet) to get offensive flag.

Yep. He was more of a penetrating 3 tech, not a 2 gap kind of guy.

You can say that all you want, but I have seen multiple instances this season where the offensive player lowers their head first, makes contact with their helmet and nothing is called.  The rule is ridiculously biased against the defense.  That's why many coaches are calling for adjustments to be made.  The rule is not realistic.

Only week 2 of preseason. However, Im starting to like the potential of the defense and dislike the offense.

 

O needs help at WR.

With the Colts that could go back to being reversed in the regular season.  I think the offense could be ok once Luck knocks the rust off him but whoa that #2 WR position could be ugly.

It is impossible to lower your shoulders to make a hit without lowering your head.

Basically, the league wants players to make tackles with their pelvis first.

 

Joking...kinda.

    • Yeah...I don't think Ballard would even draft a Jameis Winston either. But peak Winston is a much better QB than JB.
    • This is what I said above - the general stats are sometimes misleading - simply put - teams that fall behind a lot try to get back in games by throwing a lot. Teams that get ahead a lot, try to drain clock and run a lot at end of games. I've found that the game-neutral % are a better indicator for 1. tendencies(the % of pass vs run plays) and 2. strength of the chosen play.   Those stats are kind of hard to get and I haven't found a specific place, there are several users on twitter that have those stats and post them sporadically. Ours are not very different between game neutral and general(because a lot of our games are close so not a lot of blowouts to skew pass% and rush% numbers)     Yes and I disagreed with him at the time. I also disagreed with his reasoning for wanting to improve that part of the game. But that's irrelevant here.      Yep. But again - that's why we have to look at the game neutral situations.    I mean... we went from 4.2 to 4.6 and we are now tied for 7th-10th. Top 5 is actually 4.9, not 5.9, so we are 0.3 away from being top 5.    Balance is a weird thing. I personally am not a fan of balance for balance's sake. What's important is how efficient is your offense so, whatever ratio gives you the best efficiency and best chance to win the most games is what we should be aiming at. That ratio would be different for different QBs you have and most coaches in the league seem to intuitively understand that and adjust(the better passers get higher pass%, the worse passers and/or good runners get higher run%). (again - I am talking about game neutral situations here)
    • No. I watched Portland wresting when I was a kid, but it never interested me after that. I've heard those names, but couldn't put the face to the name.    I do know who Ric Flair is now because of all the times he is referenced on this site. 
    • Okereke, when on the field with Leonard and Walker has been playing SAM since Leonard came back from his concussion.
    • Not sure how I can say it differently but I'll try. I don't want Oke playing any MLB at all. I'd like to upgrade MLB with a true 3 down guy instead of bringing Oke in for passing downs. I'd prefer Oke stay outside 100% of the time (either as primary SAM or backup WILL).    At Mike specifically, I'd do the reverse of what they are doing now. I'd get a new primary Mike that can stay on the field in most packages (3 down guy), and use Walker as the back up and as a rotational guy on early downs.
