Rock and Tell

Recommended Posts

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.

Tell has been a surprise to me and Rock's tackling is strong.

 

They should develop nicely

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

Tell has been a huge surprise. We can now see why Wilson is being benched. He has caught on to playing corner very well. Hopefully rocks ankle isn’t serious because we need him to go Sunday. I hope Desir is back also

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.

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.

I see both astute drafting, and seem very quick player development. Really good signs for the future of this team. 

 

How sweet could this back seven be in a couple of years.

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.

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.

    • 9th by ESPN analytics.   Used Wins Above Replacement as their main metric.   Apologies,  it's a Premium story and I'm never quite sure what I'm allowed to reveal about stories like that.   Remember,  we started off drafting 26th...     and then traded back to 34th where we took Rock.   So, from there our class of Rock, Ben, Parris, Bobby, Khari, Tell and Speed did well enough to have us ranked 9th overall.   With his full staff in place,  we have a front office that seems to have a good idea of what they're doing.
    • It is funny how this "game manager" tag gets stuck on Fromm.  Last year Fromm threw 30 TDs, Love had 32.  Yet, Love is the playmaker and Fromm a game manager.  So this year Love throws 20 TDs and it is blamed on the changes in coaching and players around him.  Fromm through less TDs this year because they had a run orientated team.  But Fromm is a game manager.  Or he has great talent around him.  Couldn't that argument be made for Burrow?  I like your points here.  I like Fromm because he is decisive and accurate and go throw progressions well.  As much as people like to say the NFL is changing you need QBs to make plays out of the pocket, if you look at the final 4 QBs, Mahomes in the only one I would say would do that.  The players who succeed are ultimately the ones who make plays from the pocket.  It always has been that way and always will be that way.  Because it ultimately is about timing.  Guys like Watson make a few nice plays a game but are inconsistent.  I would rather have someone who is efficient and consistenly makes the right throws.
