First time I've seen a guy get pulled forward, faster than he can propel himself, in order to get faster and also to gain more body control at faster speeds. Very interesting!

Same! Those were some very neat workout drills. It also appeared they had sensors to ensure they were using enough power on their lifts. It is incredible the kind of equipment top athletes have at their disposal.

  So why did he seem to explode so quickly in our offense?
   His quick decisions and explosian went off the charts, for a rookie.
 I watched this video and witnessed the training, the concentration, the great focus to detail on his running technique. It looked very advanced. Not something additionally the coaches are having to take time get him up to high quality NFL standards. He came ready. It is Natural, minimal thinking of it after the snap.
 So he used that training to think and to focus and  to learning the playbook, then studying our opponents each week, and he got it. BAM!
 What we saw near seasons end was some BO! He was phenominal.
 Emmitt Smith could only dream of this speed. We have a great one.

So excited to see this guy in year 2.  If he continues on from his 2nd half of the year, we’re going to have a pro-bowl back.  Been a while since we’ve had that.  If he can get anywhere close to what Edge or Faulk were, we’re in good shape.

 

Mack’s no slouch either, we have such a deep RB group, prob even better than any point I can remember in the last 20 years.

I don't remember seeing this posted yet, but just came across it:

 

Nothing ground breaking, but a cool insight into some of his training.

Very good video.

I’m picturing myself getting pulled for about 5 steps, face planting, and getting dragged on my stomach the rest of of the way!

Believe it or not, some people thought JT was better than Saquan

Having been a fan of him throughout college this doesn’t surprise me at all. He’s always gone above and beyond what coaches asked him to do, seeking out all kinds of ways to improve and stay healthy. He would even experiment with things like hot yoga, which he started doing a couple times a week and credited with keeping all his muscles loose. The most impressive thing to me was that he showed up to 4x100 relay tryouts the summer before his last year and started for the team. I can’t imagine a better way to improve explosiveness after taking a handoff than practicing taking a baton handoff and exploding into a run as fast as possible.

    • Year two is where we should really see him hit his ceiling. We are going to have to have a little patience with him this first year until everyone gets used to each other. I think he will be good this year bur 22 is where it should really click.
    • I simply don't know how much authority he ever had.  I'm not sure anybody does.   It sound like he was simply a guy who was plucked out of a job In Philly, maybe having narrow duties, but did not have the managerial instincts and NFL connections to be able to assemble a non Polian staff.    Still, did Irsay help him in this aspect or just let him sink?   It always seemed like a weird authority structure.  Starting right off with Irsay handling the PM situation, deciding to draft Luck, wanting a 34 defense, not allowing RG to fire Pagano, and I wonder who made the call to either keep Arians or Pagano after the ChuckStrong campaign but the team flourishing under Arians.  Not that there was a real choice, but I always wondered if Irsay and Grigs had a talk about that after season 1 and what each thought about each coach and why.
    • We were in a great spot to trade up for Herbert. But we only had two teams we could of traded with. The giants and I believe the lions.  They may not have wanted to trade. Then that means we Would not of gotten Buckner. I think Herbert would of been able to win right away with this team. Character wise he was the perfect fit too.
    • One thing that stuck out was he said he didn’t have a good supporting cast around him helping him make decisions. Irsay would of given him anything if he asked. This is why Ballard is so good. He surrounded himself with great people who keep him accountable. He even said the assistants and scouts at the end of the season get to review his job performance as a GM. He said they bust his balls lol.
    • This is obvious to many.  Since he could not fire Pagano, I'm not sure why he did not bring in different OCs.  Of course, I'm not sure if that quick passing game was in vogue at the time he was here, and I don't know what OC candidates would have implemented it.  Seemed like the candidates were just a bunch of old school retreads at the time.   The west coast offense was known for exposing its QBs to injury, so that shorter quicker passing offense was not the answer.   Can only hire what the market produces.
