They played well today. Most of Foles yardage was in garbage time today. Let’s hope these two continue to get better. I still think the Colts need another DB, but solid effort from both and K. Moore against the Jags. 

Did rock come back in game ,was following on phone at work ?

Tell is looking like a great draft pick. In the 5th round, you are looking for developmental prospects that have the good traits, Tell looks to have the raw tools to make a good corner in this league. Still has a road ahead, but he has had an impressive last few games.

 

Pity he didnt get that pick! The kid has a great leap.

The whole secondary looked good today. Tell had some good pass break ups. Rock with his first interception. Moore with a sack and eight tackles. Hooker laying the wood. Willis all over the field.

The defense IS playing very well

 

The DBs are collapsing and REALLY helping to stop the run

 

Stopping the run...... and running the ball

 

Teams that can do both....... typically go far in playoffs

 

If we can stop the Texans, on Thursday...... we will be 2 games up,  on everyone else

Tell is relearning the CB position

 

Give him some more reps, I think he will be a starter

Rock, Tell, and, Taylor have all played well for rookies.  I know Rock has had his struggles at times but considering he’s been asked to step in as The number two corner I am happy.  Add in Willis as a rookie at safety as well it’s really amazing the secondary holds up so well seeing as it’s depending on four rookies.

I dont think we need another once Desir gets back.

Bill Brooks is Willis' Uncle.

 

With Desir out, Rock and Tell have lined up against the 1's and 2's respectfully, while the coaching staff has kept Moore in the slot. So those two rookies have held their own.

 

Wilson will likely see an offseason transition to either FS or SS as Taylor has also played well in the slot too - thus putting us 5 deep without signing a FA, the draft or UDFA's next year.

 

Or Wilson could be used as trade bait too? Who knows...

Rock seems to be often trailing th wr ,vs. blanketing him, especially on longer passes. But he did play better today. Tell seems very promising.

He does alright.  There have been a number of times this year where he has played perfect coverage and the other team just made a perfect throw.  It happened today as a matter of fact.  I think he’s doing fine for a rookie corner that has been thrust into being the number one corner due to injury.

I have been very happy since he was a small school guy

Once they both learn to turn their heads and locate the ball. That will elevate their game to the next level.

Tell has been getting better every game. 

 

Thank God Moore came back... he made that great pass break up to end their series. 

 

Hooker looks like he took the Ya Sin tackling class as well. 

 

Secondary has been looking good. Love that they are playing more man coverage!!

Ya-Sin played better. Got away with a PI on that one deep ball.

 

I thought the secondary played better after the 1st quarter. They were getting shredded across the middle of the field at 1st and there was poor effort on that 1st Chark TD. Tell looked solid though. 

 

Pass D is still a work in progress but much better than weeks past, and this might even be the best I’ve seen them play all season.

That is the way the CB is supposed to play when their is safety help over the top.

 

Quite frankly, since the Denver game ya-Sin has been playing very well.

Trade bait ?  I don't think so... Maybe could get a conditional 7th... 6th at the highest. Way more likely , IMO, to be waived .

You think Ballard would waive him in lieu of that 6th or 7th round pick from a trade? 

 

That is highly unlikely.

We're ranked 12 in passing D currently. Given all the injuries and high reliance on rooks, I'd say that's pretty fantastic. Now we've only played 2 great passing Os, and one was severely hobbled at the time, but we've exceeded expectation given all the impacts. Especially with Rock leading the entire D in snaps, and Willis leading all Ss in snaps. If you told me both Desir and Hooker would miss 3 games each, I would have said we'd be outside the top 20. Absolutely a work in progress, but the depth is pretty exciting.

No, might have been precautionary for the Texans game. Hopefully, Desir is healthy though.

 

Rock got hurt on the pick. He was back out there to start the third quarter, but he was obviously hurt when he made that tackle, and he came out and didn't go back in.

 

If I had to bet, he misses the next two games.

 We had some good coverage but were so so getting pressure with a 4 man rush.

  Imagine playing such a solid Team D with Sheard, Autry, and Johnson totaling 1 tackle. And that was Johnson's late game sack. 
 Moore was as good as any player on the field today. 
 Loved our tackling by the secondary. It was special.

Whoever is making decisions in NY is just blowing it on these PIs. That no-call on Rock was clear and obvious and should have been changed upon review. Same thing for the no-call in the Texans game.

 To clarify what I thought was obvious. ....

I said "maybe" he would bring a conditional 6th or 7th. Then I said , IMO , it's more likely he's waived. That would mean that Ballard couldn't get anything for Wilson, so he just waives him.

 

 In any event , I don't think Wilson would be considered "trade bait." Usually that term refers to a talented player that other teams have interest in. It could be a player that has a big contract for a cash strapped team. Or maybe a team with a multitude of skilled players at one position. Garoppolo would be a good example. Antonio Brown is another. My point is ,IMO, Wilson has zero to very limited value in a trade. Hopefully I'm wrong . We'll revisit if you like and hopefully I will be proved to be way off.

    • That sounds good.    I would be fine with 6-8 pm and 9-11 pm ET with a 5 minute window for picks, so 16 picks should be done in 120 minutes. It would be like the real draft starting Day 3, where they get only 5 minutes between picks.     Would you have time around the beginning of April to help moderate this along with me? If it is a small window of time, it is a smaller time commitment on my front and yours, so I like this idea.   I can ask @NFLfan @csmopar and @danlhart87 again if they would be willing to make themselves available for those small windows of time thus giving us plenty of options. Let us bring this thread back up then.
    • First of all, I'd say bad fit for us. He's a 3-4 DE. In our system he'd be a tweener, or maybe even a 3T.  Great against the run, average vs the pass. Very solid 3 down guy overall in a 3-4.   IMO, even if he was a fit, we don't need run D help, and he'd be too expensive. Overall just not the benefit and value we need.    
    • Here's what we did on another board a few years ago. Worked out pretty good. 1 Round per evening 2 windows each night... picks 1-16, and then 17-32 (I think it was 7p-8p and 9-10, but could have been 8-9 and 10-11). That way, guys new pretty much when they needed to be there, and only needed to pay attention for roughly an hour per day. Really not even that long. Also gave the mods some time between windows to tidy up. 3 minute clock hence the "flash" term. If you miss a pick, you drop 5 spots (basically giving them an extra 15 minutes). If they missed it a second time, they get bumped to the end of the round and have up to an hour before the next days round starts. If they miss that, they get best player based on their primary needs.  We had 3 threads going at once, and 3 moderators. One thread for the pick announcements and general comments, one with a constantly updated order and big board, and one to manage trades. The big board management was great in terms of keeping it going and checking off who is gone. We also published team needs, but I can't remember if we tracked it except for using it when folks missed their window. Only trades allowed are pick for pick(s) so very little approval needed. No picks for existing players (We did the mock post FA fury, I think we started about 2 weeks prior to the draft).
