Desir - Any word?

Recommended Posts

He's arguably our best CB.  We have some depth, but I'd hate to lose him.  Especially with Julio and company coming to town.

Bring in Minkah :D

 

We have plenty of draft picks.  And you can’t have too many good CBs.

It didn't seem too bad he walked off on his own they probably told him to rest up instead of trying to play it out

Depending how bad it is my guess we will call Collins up from the Ps. This also probably leaves them unable to keep CK on the 53.

Minkah for a 2nd........

 

 

 

 

Two problems with this.  He is a safety not a corner.  Miami is saying at least a first for him.  He was the #11 pick last year.

Meh, we survived the Luck quitting thing, the McDaniels thing, I think we’ll survive if the third string QB is cut. 

 

That said, I hope they find a way to keep him

If Desir can’t go next week rock is going to have the task of covering Julio. Hopefully the rookie can handle it.

In our defense, he could play outside CB.  

 

No one has yet offered a 1.......  

 

Somewhere I read that Miami might take a 2nd

 

Prolly not gonna happen......

With Desir getting injured, if the the Colts come calling Miami may raise the ante.

The 3rd string QB should be the 1st team QB

He is a corner not a safety.  That is one of the reasons he has asked to be traded.  He feels he is not being used at his best position.

He wants to be a slot corner. We already have a star there. Until this QB situation is figured out ballard isn’t giving away picks.

They could easily keep him on the 53.  Just rotate other guys on the PS.

He would play outside CB for us.  Not a big deal and he would make more money there eventually.  Never said Ballard would do it but he should.  He and Rock would be our lockdown CB's. for the future.  I hope we have our QB on the roster.  Trading up is a crapshoot and guarantees us nothing.

He's a better CB than he is a safety.

At best, IMO, they put CK on the PS. Maybe not even that.

Well if you do that you take a chance of losing them. Milligan will probably go back to the PS and Collins will be called up. There really is no one else to send to the practice squad.

Speaking of safety help Willis is really seeing a lot of playing time.  I will be interested in the snap counts.  He might take over the SS spot sooner rather than later.

Why not Williams?  Don't need 4 active RB's.

Nonsense...Desir would be inactive instead of Tell. No changes needed so Kelly to the 53.

You really going to trust tell against the falcons.  He is still way to green. Only reason he didn’t go to the PS is they were afraid of losing him.

Much more than Collins. Collins has lost his confidence plus they would play just a few snaps anyway.

I agree.  Kelly needs to go on the 53.  With injuries to Big Ben and Brees today and Wentz being out a bit tonight because of an injury it would be smart to hold on to him.  Even if he makes it to the PS, which I doubt, he could still be signed off of it.  I think he is a valuable commodity whose value could be increasing each week.

    • Had Funchess been practing? I thought he had to practice for two weeks before being able to come back?
    • Oh you were right on that one.  I still won, but I missed out on having highest score of the week by .32 points.  Our league pays out for highest weekly scores. 
    • I think there's a danger with any position of getting enamoured with the 40 time, I'd put 3 cone over it certainly. However, as always never go by just one metric, and never put metrics over film.    For all that was written about him being a below average athlete, if you compare  him to some of the 'good' SS's in the league he matches up pretty well:   Willis 4.55s (40)/7.15s (3 Cone) Collins 4.53s (40)/7.53s (3 Cone) Chancellor 4.69s (40)/7.36s (3 Cone) Jones  4.51s (40)/7.43s (3 Cone)  Adams  4.56s (40)/6.96s (3 Cone)    etc etc... 
    • CeeDee Lamb would be the dream pick imo. Reminds me a lot of Hopkins/Thomas, good size, great route runner and hands. Means he could take on a high volume of targets in the short/intermediate range, something I think Frank Reich badly needs (that's why he was high on signing Funchess). Put him on the boundary opposite Hilton and Campbell in the slot and we have serious options. Not as high on Ruggs when we already have Hilton.   I like Mack as a lead back, but not 25 carries a game. I would prefer a legit RB2 to take some of that load off him, preferably a RB to compliments his game, so a heavier, more physical, north/south RB. This draft has options in the mid round.
    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
