Cleveland fans probably have not had this much excitement in years. They will be fun to watch.

That's what it means. It's a difference maker...someone that commands attention and can change the game with one play.

That argument concerning Geathers is kind of funny to me because it's not like it's a whole bunch of playmakers just running around the league at SS. Guys who are good in coverage, can stop the run and make plays on the football.  I can only name a few guys.  Most teams don't have superstar at SS, it's usually a guy like Geathers that is the norm at that spot. .

Nobody is asking him to be a superstar or an elite player. The argument for me is that he's an average player that provides nothing outside of tackles, when he is on the field. Someone that I hope we move on from

Sure. So if that’s all he does and nothing more and I can find some who also provides help in other areas besides tackles then give me that other player. All Im saying.

No, with PD, INT,FF'S etc......but It's obvious that you're going to continue to ignore the point I am making so we can end the convo

There are very few play makers in this league. That’s why when you get one on your team you better keep them.

 

I agree there is something to be said about when you do your job well. To me your making a impact.

Championships aren't won in March, I would love to see us get 1 or 2 big names but if it doesn't happen, oh well. I look for results = we went 10-6 and won a playoff game, made the final 8 this past season. I expect us to win 10 again, perhaps 11 but get to the final 4 come this upcoming season. If we don't then complaining should definitely happen. We can't go backwards now like we did the Grigson era.

And Duke's a better RB than both White and Hines.

 

 

 

I think we need to wait to make that judgment. Hines did quite well for his rookie year. If you look at his stats compared to Duke's rookie year they are very similar.

This is around the time we will begin to get involved.

 

When the market is starting to result in people signing 1 year "prove it" deals and "at" or "below" market values as the spending cools.

 

Would have liked Clinton-Dix but there are still a handful of good Safeties out there

That's exactly why you would want to keep him. Having a sure tackler on the back end is a must and bonus points if he is a bruiser. How often have our defense been plagued by poor tackling. The best weve been is when Bob Sanders was out there laying the wood.

 

Now he is no more than a role player (dime linebacker), shouldnt command anywhere near top money, and the position should have another body there that is better in coverage. Sure tacklers are always needed though. He should be retained to continue his role though. Not a starter but a quality role player.

I don't hate Geathers, in fact I think he's pretty decent, but if we're calling him an impact player then I think we're using that term pretty loosely.

When you look at this secondary when he and Hooker were not back there you saw a huge difference in the effectiveness of this defense when both are back there and the front is getting a lot of pressure this defense was capable of beating any team that got put in front of them. Now this secondary got expose a bit when they couldn't get to the quarterback which at time made the defensive backfield look worst than what it actually is. I hate to break this to people while I agree Geathers isn't a superstar talent he is an important member of this secondary.

Did you see the video of him visiting Carr at his house. They looked liked best buds. It was kind of odd with the bad reputation he has going around.

 

Who is the reputation coming from? This is the question and why? All of his other teammates not named Ben seems to enjoy him.

I think I read where Ballard said he was offering Gaethers a deal similar to the one he offered Mewhort last year.  Which was a one year prove it deal.  If true I would expect he will decide to sign pretty quickly now.

I don't mind if Geathers comes back at all.  However I do predict we will draft a safety who will do similar roles as Geathers did in his rookie year.

Would Geathers take a one year deal? I would think only if someone else was not offering a multiple year deal. With his injury history I would not blame him for taking a multi year deal. I guess though that one year deal could be pretty big money.

Rumors are Houston to Steelers 

How are the Steelers going to sign him before they signed the three players they signed this morning they only had 6.5 million in cap space one of those players they paid almost 3 million I don't think they showed what they paid the other two.

Kind of surprising. I would have thought at this stage of his career he'd hold out for a contender, not a rebuild.

Specs on the Tate deal. Basically got what all the other slots got (ala Humphries, Beasley, Crowder, etc)

 

Got a bit more in guarantees. I would have happily paid that but I am biased and wanted Tate despite him being 30 going on 31 lol

I was interested in Tate at 2-years...  maybe 3, but that would be the Max.  At 4-years I’d be out of the discussion.   Especially at nearly 60 percent guaranteed!    Yikes!

All you have to do is look at stats hell Kam has WAY more PDs and FF and INT. I've said it before he's useless in coverage. We need a SS that can cover TEs and underneath passes to WRs so we dont get destroyed again this year. But like some have said the forum has a huge man crush on Geathers. Prolly one of the most overrated Colts.

because we don't play him in coverage. jesus chirst you guys don't get it. You want us to put geathers in deep cover 2 zone instead of playing in the box to his strength?

The Steelers traded a player they just signed to an enormous contract.    And Brown was still such an enormous jerk that (A) the Browns still traded him despite (B) a huge dead cap salary hit and (c) getting pennies on the dollar in draft pick return.

 

If ALL THAT doesn’t tell you that the problems with Brown are far more than with just Ben Roethlisberger, then I don’t know what will?

I am not saying I agree with this at all, but I did see an article which said in so many words that the Giants went from:

 

"Hey we can compete now"

 

- Drafted Barkley to help an aging Eli

- Invested in OL to protect aging Eli and run ball better (signed Solder, drafted Hernandez)

- Paid OBJ to prevent distraction and lock him in and make him happy

 

to realizing

 

"Wow, we are not close to competing. We truly need to rebuild"

 

This article mentioned that the moment it became clear they really must rebuild it made all the sense in the world to trade OBJ. If they are going to draft their QB of the future (and use Eli as a bridge), their management did not want that young QB having to deal w OBJ in his ear demanding the ball and being ticked off about the rebuild and them not winning/competing.

 

 

Again, I'm not saying I agree with this. I'd rather have a weapon like OBJ for my young QB to develop with, but if that was the logic and thought process then I get it.

 

Giants turn around and get Zeitler to further beef up their OL and now with grabbing Tate they still have some weapons.

 

If they take a new QB in the draft he at least has Saquon, Engram, Shepherd and Tate to throw to.

 

The question really amount to:

 

Would you trade OBJ (@ $18M a year)

 

for

 

1st Rd pick

3rd Rd pick

J. Peppers

G. Tate (@$9M a year)

 

 

when you lay it all out like that, it makes a bit more sense. I still would not have done it, but man it sounds like their entire management was just done with him and realized it too late. They should have moved him before his extension last year when they could have made a killing on dealing him.

    • people are acting like the NFL hasn't been around for 100 years and that violence on the NFL field has never happened before.   Honestly there is a tidal wave of hype around this incident that isn't in the least bit deserved.   the indefinite suspension is fair.  What Garrett did was very wrong and he needs to demonstrate that he learned his lesson before he should be allowed back on an NFL field.   Talk of criminal charges is asinine.  It's also probably a violation of agreements signed in order to become an NFL player, which I'm sure includes a waiver of legal indemnity for actions and injuries that take place in the ordinary course of play and practice on the football field.   Ultimately, this debate doesn't need to happen.  Justice has already been served, such as it is.    Also as far as criminal or civil claims, Rudolph has practically zero grounds to pursue any further action since Rudolph's own hands are not exactly clean in this whole mess.  He was arguably the one that started the fight in the first place after all.   "I have video evidence that the plaintiff was the one to start the fight" has been the death of more than a few claims for civil damage or criminal charges in the courts of this country.  A jury isn't likely to favor the guy who started the fracas.
    • We were discussing the overreaction to the tweet not the play         
    • My God, you're right...   It's a conspiracy, man.   If Reich know tha hez company loyal to stand by the nonsense and the obvimously lack of talent an holes on diz roster then then he knows that if he shows JB can't reaf his progrezions den the opposing teams will have the advantage! Reich try to tank for a top 10 pick! We all know it!   BACK TO THE PILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!               *I lost today's internal battle, because of my brother to the north... A certain south park song I am dieing to use as justification
    • If VM is saying it, it's likely because he's parroting what management is saying. Not saying it's not true, or true, just saying there's always a narrative. 
    • The lack of light front carries is either play calling, or JB's choice. Light front carries may also be down simply because of down and distance when facing light fronts. I'm guessing this goes at least partly to JB's struggles with reading Ds.   And using "stacked box" stats are very imperfect. It's not always about what how many are in the box, it's what those guys do when the ball is snapped. The stacked box stat typically only measures 8+ defenders in the box at the time of snap. What it doesn't tell you is what the front seven does. Do the LBs play the run or go into coverage is the more accurate measurement, along with how much nickel and dime coverage you see.    If I were a D vs JB, I'd go standard package (no nickel/dime) most of the time, and have the LBs play run or shallow crossing, which is what we are generally seeing. 4 DBs on standard downs is sufficient vs our current O.  I'm going to say Reich and JB are making it more predictable. If the passing game is more successful, and the play calling isn't as conservative, we're not having this problem at all. Like I said in a previous post, very few team have RB1s that are dynamic in both running and passing. And honestly that's not Reich's O. Mack is 12 of 14 (yes only 14), so he's been very reliable. It's more lack of targets and play calling if anything.  He is an APB. An APB does not run it between the tackles often, and that's what Reich typically calls for him... An APB is a change of pace back that is usually more edge, sweep, receiving,  and gimmicky. I'd say his "average" play, is a product of use type. White rushing is 32 attempts for 104 yards, and a 3.3 average. Hines is 22 for 66 and 3.0 with mostly between the T rushes. Last year with Luck, Hines was 85/315 and 3.7 rushing.... do you see the difference....  Yes it's rare to have a stud #1 RB that excels in both. I think we are under utilizing Mack in the passing game, and I think Hines is hampered by both rush play calling, and by JB in the passing game. That's what they numbers suggest anyway.
