I'll wait to see what our rookie 4th round pick does as the season progresses. Not sure that 3 preseason games are a fair barometer. 

Are we really calling a draft pick a bust before the season starts?!    Come on guys, the drops are concerning, but with a young guy like that, it is experience of mistakes under the lights

I don’t know why you think I’m the one who doesn’t understand the difference?

 

I just explained it to you.   You chose to ignore it.     So I’ll try again.    In football terms,  speed  is one direction — forward.    Quickness is all directions.  Left, right, forward and back.

 

The fact the some sprinters are great for 40 yards, but can’t maintain it for 100 yards is NOT the difference between being quick and fast.   That’s a complete lack of understanding.

 

As is the notion that you have multiple friends who ran in multiple Olympics, who, according to you, were “maybe 4.5 guys.”    Im sorry,  but whether you believe it or not,  it’s 100 percent false.   Not even a little bit true.   

 

So at this point you and I are going to have to agree to disagree.   We see this differently.

 

Good luck to you....

 

I think that besides football quickness being in all directions, it is also defined as being a player's first step quickness, which is obviously a lot shorter than 40 yards. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000438263/article/football-speed-developing-firststep-quickness

At the beginning of tonight's game broadcast, Rick Venturi was talking about players who needed to step up tonight. At the same time the camera was showing different guys during pregame warmups and when they had a closeup of Hines, it looked like a punt bounced off his chest and hit the ground.

Hopefully it was a decent little confidence booster for him and he can continue to improve throughout the season, no dropsies!!  I thought he looked better than Wilkins.  I do feel that Mack will be very effective with this team since he's far and away the most dynamic back on the team.

    • Nah, Griggs would be out of breath and sweating burger grease by the two minute mark.  Ballard looks scrappy.
    • Come on... No, you know what, I realize some here like Doyle. I just have never liked Doyle. Doyle is not an impact player to me. Yes I know that sometimes a key first down pickup by a Doyle catch is an impact play in that moment, it's just Doyle has so few moments that he might as well be on another team making a very low impact. Honestly, Ebron in his first year with Colts ironically has been the best TE the colts have had since Dallas Clark... That should tell you something
    • I've said numerous times combined we're gonna pay around 50 mil a year.   Nelson 16-18 mil Leonard 18-20 mil Smith 14-15 mil
    • Wentz will need protection if he is going to deliver. Yesterday it was said of him he was thought to be the second coming of Andrew Luck. Lets hope that is not the case when he goes under center and gets racked all season long like Luck.
    • Luck retired right before the 2019 season.   That only gave Ballard 1 offseason to address the QB situation.  He knew the team was good and didn't want to waste a year so he brought in Rivers.   Rivers had a good year despite no training camp or preseason with the receivers.  Went 11-5.   68% completions, 24TD's, 11 INT's.  Lost by 3 in the playoffs.  I was pretty happy with the season.  Now, a year and a half later he has the future QB on the team.   I'm glad he didn't reach too much.  I suppose he could have drafted Jalen Hurts but he took Pittman and Taylor instead and grabbed Eason in the 4th round.  I think he handled this well.
