The whole draft class is signed now

I don’t think we understand how special this kid can be. Everytime I put in his tape I get more and more excited.

Now everyone can breathe easy ... or is there more suspense to follow?

Just the cancellation of the season due to covid-19 concerns, but other than that, I’m sure we will stumble upon something to cause us grief. 
 

glad everyone is signed, now, I just hope they get to play football and the season doesn’t become a season of protest and political statements.

   Some sizeable protests outside the stadiums on game day should be Expected.
  Never waste an opportunity, especially in an election year.

Sizable protests?     Outside the stadium?    In Indiana?    Really?

 

Have there been protests of Floyd in Indianapolis the last three weeks?     IF so,  I haven’t read about them.   I don’t recall protests in 18, 16, 14 or 12.   And those were all election years....

 

Im just asking and thinking out loud.  I obviously don’t live there...

Politely, can I ask that we keep this to football please. This will only inevitably lead to a wider discussion which is being had away from the football forums in Misc.

Ballard has said possibly October.   I’ll believe it when I see it. 
 

 

Yeah, I remember doing a double take at that statement from Ballard because Blackmon said he was hopeful for like a December/January return or something. We shall see.

I haven't seen anything about December 2020 (his injury occurred in Dec 2019, so maybe that's part of the confusion).

 

The only thing I saw (besides Ballard's statement about October) was that he was expected to be medically cleared by July.

Honestly...   I had not read the quote from Blackmon about Dec/Jan.   But that feels more right.   October just feels way too optimistic for a kid who was operated on in early January.  Nit saying it’s impossible.

 

I just keep remembering Hooker the year after his injury in 17.   I never thought his leg looked good in 18.   His running always felt labored to me...  not easy and relaxed.   I’ll be thrilled if we get any quality play out of Blackmon this year.   But I’m hoping he’s dramatically improved in ‘21.

Yeah I can’t find the quote for the life of me so I could be unintentionally making things up. 

 

I know his injury occurred in December, just thought I remembered reading a pre-draft interview where he gave a longer timeline than Ballard did later on. Now thinking back, it could’ve even been an estimation by a scout/analyst/etc.

 

I do agree with NCF in that I’d be pleasantly surprised if we see quality play from him that early on.

Blackmon’s injury was indeed in December...    but it happened in the bowl game Utah played in and I believe that game was in very late Dec...   like the 30th or 31st.   So the surgery was early January...

From what little I saw this kid has a great future and yet another DB that could fill in for several positions

 

With no camp, I really don’t see him contributing much.... 

 

Let him get 100% and be a rising star in 2021.

 

If he somehow heals fast we get a decent backup that can be one of the nickel DBs in late Nov/Dec

 

Im not counting on it....   It usually takes 12-18 months to get back up and going at full speed from this injury

    • If the league has to add games to the end of the season they will just push back the playoffs. They might be able to switch some bye weeks around also.  
    • Too many stalled drives before we too the foot off. Run game did not surprise me given NYJ were 2nd best vs the run last year. The INTs didn't really equate to lost possessions. They were simply an interruption in an opponent's possession that gave us points. 
    • I strongly disagree. We have plenty of talent on O. Game plan, play calling, and personnel choice in situational downs have been highly questionable. The pass/run mix game 1 was heavy pass, and just didn't make sense vs Jax, and especially in game 1 after no preseason with the RBs we had to start the year. The heavy run in G2 was an overreaction to G1. The heavy run in G3 was just silly given it's the Jet's strength.   Reich has a history of not attacking a teams weakness while going heavy against their strengths (see Miami last year). Play calling in general, has been predictable and conservative. I'll cut him a break there since perhaps he doesn't want to show much this early, but if he doesn't open things up soon, I'll have to scratch my head on that too. Maybe it's partly covid, but other teams look far more dynamic. We had WRs and TEs open all game Sunday, and needed to get some of the young WRs experience. It was a lost opportunity.   And IMO, even JB regressed with Reich from 2017 to 2019. The stats were very similar, but JB in 2019 had a heck of a lot better OL, and was sacked half the amount he was in 2017.    I really like Frank as a person, but it's not like his track record can't be questioned. In his two years in Phily as OC, Pederson called the plays so not much to glean from. In his two years as OC in LA, he had horrible balance both years, and was fired after being last in the league rushing and a 4-12 record. He's not all the much better than Pagano thus far, and has a much better roster.    Not saying at all we need to fire Frank, or anything like that. I am saying though he's not done anything extraordinary thus far though. He's got no excuses this year.   I agree. I can understand him not playing early last year when we had Doyle and Ebron both, but we should absolutely see him get a good snap share this year. Maybe short term a little, but honestly I'm not worried. We did fine when he was out last year. Williams had two 100 games in a row when Mack was out. Taylor will be fine with our OL. Having Taylor and Mack was an embarrassment of riches, but we're just fine with Taylor/Wilkins/Hines.   Again, IMO, goes back to game plan. We didn't run the ball a bunch against a team (Jax) that was 5th worst in the league vs the run last year. Then, we ran the ball a lot vs MN (better than they appear vs the run) and NYJ (who were 2nd best vs the run last year). Sorry, that just doesn't make sense.   Then add in things like using Hines between the tackles in goal line situations. Luck leaving was the only truly big issue. Pagano had to deal with Luck being gone a year too, and gimpy a few other years. Pagano did better (record wise) his first 3 years with a healthy Luck, then Reich did with a healthy Luck in 2018, and had a better roster on both sides, especially OL.  Not really. Rivers did great using a ton of different pass catchers this week, when allowed to throw. And we had guys wide open all game. Mo did fine in Doyle's place. Both Hines and Taylor are catching the ball well and are 22/23 on targets. TY looked better this week. Pascal is still there. Fountain got his feet wet. Taylor's AVG was good running. Our OL has been balling out and Rivers only sacked twice (on track for only 11 total this year).
    • Goodness. This is how the outbreaks start.   The first real test of NFL protocols. Let’s hope they can get a handle on it.
