Moore out, Desir is game time decision

Recommended Posts

If Desir cant go, it would most likely be Ya-sin on Hopkins. Not sure how much I really like that.

Oof... going to be a long day in our defensive backfield.

 

Even if we double Hopkins, the other 1 on 1s will be painful to watch.

We were down players when we went into KC and the general fan temperature was grim. 

 

How'd that turn out?

Yeah. We're also down Turay so our pass rush could very well not be as effective as it was against Mahomes, meaning a tougher time for our DB's.

We'll see how our defense does. Should be interesting.

I am not worried about Hopkins. He will get his yards. It’s the other three WR. As long as Desir goes I think we will be ok. That still allows us to show a lot of different looks. If he can’t go that’s where where we have to go vanilla. Watson will kill us if that’s the case. As much as we make fun of Wilson it’s times like the last two weeks where he is very valuable and can play all DB positions. Having Leonard back helps not having Moore.

 

The injury list doesn’t look to bad actually. Reich said Campbell is expected back at practice next week.

Houston has 4 really good WR who can run routes. If you go back to KC their WR were just going to a spot on the field and were not running routes. Made them easier to defend in man. Plus Houston is healthy.

Not that it has to be said but with Hooker being out, which isn't surprising, is big too with all of Houston's weapons.

If our pass rush doesn't get home we could end up seeing some really annoying scrambles/deep bombs from Watson.

OK. Well, I remember the talk of how Mahomes was going to carve us up.

If Moore and Desire are both out, then our CBs are Ya Sin, Wilson, Taylor and Tell.

Even without are best corners playing, I'm sure are deep cover 2 zone will be just fine.

If we're gonna do that, we need Leonard to mirror Watson

The problem with both Desir and Moore our is it limits the looks you give Watson. If Desir can go I think we will be ok. Taylor mentioned how Moore helped him prepare for the KC game. It does take away the blitz from Moore though.

I am actually glad it looks like they are going to keep hooker out another week. Let him get a week of full practice in.

is he officially out? all the reports I'm seeing are listing him as doubtful.  I'd say odds are he doesn't play but I don't know if its official that he's out yet

Officially hes doubtful, but the chances of him playing slim

Being listed as doubtful usually means the player will not suit up for the game

 Good point about Moore. Maybe Okereke, Leonard, Taylor, Wilson or Tell will help with the loss of Moore.

    If Desir can play man on Hopkins, they can double Fuller. Or visa versa. 
    Wilson does a good job with TEs. Willis is playing like he’ll be there for a long time.

     Speaking of SS, I wonder how Geathers will play? All of the secondary individuals have made some great plays and watching that KC game, they were on on their receivers like white on rice.

     I know these guys are a lot better but, the secondary may surprise some people Sunday.

     Keep Watson, Fuller, Hyde and Hopkins on the bench. They can’t hurt you there.

My point is, last week it was the QB. This week it's the WR's. Fact is, any fan can point out where we are lacking every week. It's all good, I just see patterns around here. 

 

Regardless of who was missing on D, we got it done last week in one of the 3 toughest houses in the NFL. This week, at home, I am excited to watch our o-line push the run game. They are fully healthy, and are poised to put a squeeze on the division early.

Nelson has a hip issue. But looks like he will go. Desir being questionable is good.

Reich also said in his presser today that Houston was just preventive and he will go. It would of been a rest day anyway.

Well that’s not good. Watson is a very cerebral QB he’s going to dissect a vanilla secondary if we can’t get pressure...:

He will be fine. He is listed as questionable and not doubtful so that is a good sign. Unless he has some kind set back don’t expect him to sit.

Well they do practice. The injury report isn’t bad. 2 of the 3 players ruled out have been out for weeks. Half those guys on the list are listed as rest. The question will be how effective Desir will be. Reich said he felt they had enough DB so that probably says Desir plays.

I think it's fine to look at match ups as objectively as possible. I'll always point out areas where we might struggle and vice versa. 

As for the good stuff, I think we have the coaching edge and JB could have himself a game through the air. But it's reasonable to think we might struggle in certain areas, especially with our injuries.

I suspect Nelson was basically just letting him rest like Houston.  Reich also mentioned since Moore and Desir did not practice all week everyone got snaps so they will be prepared.

Well we will see. Not the end of world  if we lose to Houston, but probably  won't  win division

I thought roby was going to be our a few weeks. Unless O’Brien is playing games this is weird. Their DB backs are beat up like ours. I just give Watson the edge over JB to take advantage of that.

Just curious as to how we're more injured coming out of the bye week as we were going into it? Anyone else curious about this?

Other than 1 possession in Q1, Mahomes didn't really give us very much trouble.  We got a lot of pressure on him and slowed him down with an ankle injury.  That whole game was a great piece of defensive football.

    • 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.
    • Yeah...people talk it's this consistent feature for the offense. Sure would have been nice to have that run blocking the past two weeks. 
    • I meant a touchdown or in this case a two point return 
    • It was a great play...but the game was over...so I can see how it gets lost in the recap a bit.
    • Many teams are getting away from the throwing 65% or more of the time and trying to get to the almost 55% pass to 45% run balance.  Here's the top 13 teams throwing the most ( >61% of the time) -   Team                                     Pass% Atlanta Falcons                    67.7 Cincinnati Bengals              67.2 Miami Dolphins                  66.7 New York Giants                 66.2 Kansas City Chiefs              65.3          * Tampa Bay Buccaneers     64.3 Los Angeles Chargers        62.9          * Carolina Panthers              62.3 Arizona Cardinals              62.3 Chicago Bears                     62.1 New York Jets                      61.6 Washington Redskins       61.3 Pittsburgh Steelers            61.1          *   How are they doing?     Frank evidently respects it. He quoted it as a goal.     And teams that fall behind abandon the run throw a lot (higher %).  Reich would want a much better run/pass balance, even with Luck. Not get top 5 Rush performance just going from 4.2 YPC to 5.9 YPC... on the same limited amount of carries.  He knew it would take an increase of both touches and YPC ,together to achieve the goal.   Remember, his quotes about this were in March of 2018, not days after Luck retired.
