Well if Rock and Rhodes can have a good year, we can have a special defense

Actually saw something the other day that said 

 

Rock, Xavier and Tell III are battling for 2 starting outside jobs.

 

Will see if I can find the article

Tell III could be a dark horse premium piece for this defense long term. The athleticism is off the charts and I was impressed at times with what I saw.

Yeah, I was surprised to see Bowen report that he was fighting for a starting job.

 

 

I like Tell III also.

Tell had his moments, but I don't think he's ready to start.

Just thought I'd post the link I read.

That’s one of the most ripped, most shredded torso’s I’ve ever seen.

 

Is that an 8-pack?   Or more?   He’s clearly been working out all off-season.   I don’t know where or how?   But this guy looks READY for camp!

scroll through those pictures and tell me you aren’t excited at the prospect of this guy being a stud this year and going forward. 

Hopefully this is natural muscle  and he worked on stretching and flexibility. Too many injuries today are caused because the ligaments and tendons can't support muscle strength created through chemistry.

Anyone else freak out cuz they thought this said “attacked” , not stacked?

haha.   I did.


If it did, it would have been followed up with “and Ya-Sin called ambulance for the injured attacker.”

State wrestling champion this guy has power to spare, also surprised Tell is in the running to start outside figured it would be T.J.Carrie who has 51 career starts to his name with 6 last year in the running. He is listed as starter at a few sites, shows how deep our Corner room is though and thats definitely a good problem to have.

It’s impossible for any of us to know what a rookie does in the offseason to prepare themselves to take elevate their game to another dimension. Rock obviously is working his * off. I’m excited to see his improvement. He got much better throughout the year last year.

8 pack? That’s a 12 pack of Rolling Rock (ya-sin), if you know what I’m saying. They’d be smart to bring him on as their key endorsement.

Come on, you HAD to know i meant him/her.

I still like the prospect of Ya Sin and Tell on the outside (2021 with more seasoning) with Rhodes converted to Safety (ala Ronnie Lott, Rod Woodson or Charles Woodson did back in the day) and Kenny Moore in the slot! I could get behind that kind of secondary......

My high school beer was Hamms. You could buy an 8 pack of Hamms for the same price as a 6 pack of other beers. An 8 pack of Hamms was $1.60. lol

But he played starter snaps in three games last year...and the Colts pass defense was fantastic in those games. I don’t see why he wouldn’t be ready for a starting role.

Which were the broncos, dolphins, and jags I believe. Not exactly prolific passing teams. Look I'm not saying he can't start, but I wouldn't be overly confident about it either.

As it should be. Tell took some lumps...but do did Rock...and by many metrics...Tell was better than Rock last year. He should have stayed as a starter when Desir returned...but I guess they wanted to give Desir the benefit of the doubt and give him a chance to earn a spot next year. Makes sense...but it would have been nice for Tell to get those snaps...especially since they released Desir anyways.

 

But going into next season...Tell definitely deserves a shot at competing for both spots.

You can't help who you face. He did well in the 3 games he started. Bottom line. I think you are judging him more on being a 5th rounder and assuming he's not ready rather than on his body of work. Don't do that.

Actually moving Rhodes to SS in Nickel might be a strong consideration. I hadn’t really thought about moving him from where he’s played his whole career but since his athleticism has gone down a little bit and he’s been so bad outside the last two years, having him man up against TEs could be just what his career needs. I liked what Willis showed but he was so bad in coverage that I am really not counting on him to be more than a base package box safety.

It's not like he got the same amount of snaps as Rock. I can only base it on what I've seen so far in his limited action. I hope the kid proves me wrong.

I mean, correct me if I’m wrong on this, but do you really assume Ballard and this coaching staff have the starting lineup in ink going into training camp? I’m fairly positive everyone has a chance to move up (and down) the depth chart in camp.

A chance, yes.   Not as much as most years though.   With no preseason games, I bet most coaches keep last years lineup if possible.

It depends on the player and position. I assume they have some people in ink already (the QBs, the O-Line, the LBers), while there are other positions that will have battles for starting jobs (secondary, WR, TE). At this point, with a limited or no preseason, most of training camp will probably just decide who makes the team and the younger players will have to earn a starting job through playing time (which will be harder to do).

Correct, but apparently you didn't read it. He explained how he appreciated all of the feedback he got from his colleagues and he incorporated that feedback into his paper - as professional scientists do. He also cautioned the general populace against judging the data based on who is presenting it. Scientific data should speak for itself.

 

He stands by his conclusions (in the May article) and has now (mid-June) published his pre-print that holds the same conclusions that the 'pandemic' is far less lethal than initially reported.

 

Conclusions The infection fatality rate of COVID-19 can vary substantially across different locations and this may reflect differences in population age structure and case-mix of infected and deceased patients as well as multiple other factors. Estimates of infection fatality rates inferred from seroprevalence studies tend to be much lower than original speculations made in the early days of the pandemic.

    • That's what I was thinking
    • I think we're in good shape either way, it just adjusts our strategy with some extensions, and maybe we can't add another FA.    For a team like the Eagles, it completely changes their approach. If the cap is $175m, they can't keep Wentz without completely gutting the rest of their roster.
    • The trend is for the best offenses to be the teams contending for the Superbowl.  Are you aware of the basic Defense wins championships mantra?  You know Offense scores points?   I assume you are   Interstingly, the last really good D to win Superbowl was PHI and they had to score 44 points to do it v. No. 1 yanked Offense NE. And the Foles led offense carried them through the playoffs.  Before that it was Mannings Broncos.   Also intersesting is the 13-3 NE over LAR SB, featured the 25th and 27th ranked Ds in football.       The way to win in today's NFL is with high powered NFL passing offenses.  The rules are and have been set up that way increasingly over the last 20 years.   It's a lot different than when we were kids.   So like I said, it's usually Offense wins championships, Defense tries to hold teams to FGs.  There are occasionally anomalies but this is bascially accurate in todays' NFL.
    • There’s a good reason why defense everywhere suffered badly.   I can explain it in one word.  And you know the word.  Come on EVERYBODY say it with me!!!!   COVID!!   C-O-V-I-D!!   Defenses were poorer in the NFL and the college level as well.   Much less practice.  Much less contact.  Much less close up coaching.  Far more walk throughs.      When the world returns to normal, defenses will get better.  So will football. 
    • Not surprising at all. Here is how he ranked in other categories:   Intended Air Yards/PA - 26 Completed Air Yards/PA - 28 Completed Air Yards/Completion - 29 YAC/Completion - 2   First...it cannot be ignored that the Colts played (by far) the easiest schedule on offense. The average defense they played would have ranked ~23rd in DVOA. And that average was "deflated" somewhat by playing #1 defense PIT...when they clearly weren't the #1 defense anymore (after losing players to injury). That definitely played a factor.   Second...these numbers are as much Reich as it is anything. Reich uses the mesh concept (like he did with JB last year)...which creates open players in space and allows for YAC.    In fact, River's numbers (in the above categories) were very similar to JB's numbers last season. But Rivers is just a much better QB...and throws with better anticipation and accuracy. Throw in a HR hitter like Taylor and a young talented WR like Pittman...and you (naturally) have much better QB production with these concepts.   With the Colts offensive system, I think they could have immediate success with just about any talented QB they brought in...including a rookie. And if that QB is mobile...it will open up the playbook even more and raise the ceiling.   So I am in the minority here...but Rivers coming back doesn't move the needle for me. It's a lateral and stagnant move. I was all for the signing Rivers last off season...because it was the best of not-so-ideal situation. But if anything, it just proved that this team is ready to take the next step forward...and that means getting the right QB. Now is the time to make that move. So the only way I want Rivers back is if they get aggressive and move up to draft a QB who might need to sit for a part or all of a season.    TBH...I would rather roll the dice on Darnold and accept the risk of a reset year. I think he make a  good transition to this offense. And either he breaks out and suddenly you have a 24 year-old franchise QB...or he doesn't...and you have a reset year with the Colts in a much better position to draft a QB. Bringing back Rivers does nothing for the position long-term...and likely means another pick in the 20s.
