Sam isn't starting a regular season game unless Jacob and Carson have covid

Agreed. At least, not this year.

Running Hines into middle of traffic, when has it worked percentage wise? 

I don't mind the occasional run up the gut to keep them honest, but I hate when they use Hines as the bell cow...

IMO, their intent will be to phase in PC on the outside at Z, and phase TY out. I wouldn't run PC at slot much as I just don't want to risk banging him up.


Yeah I get it too. Plus PC has that 4.31 40 speed to stretch the field, which what you want in your Z. Pascal and Pittman to work underneath which is their game.

So far Sam hasn’t thrown any passes you have to make in the nfl. Seems the only pass he can throw is the crosser. He can’t fit it to the boundary  or tight windows in the middle of the field.

Interesting nice to know. I can't see game so relying on description

He's a rookie.

He's never played in a regular season game.

You are a broken record.

Well, Eason is going to likely walk into a golden opportunity to stand out today.... Ehlinger has been ok, but hasn't done anything to really stand out in a good way, having the advantage of more supporting cast this week.

I know, MN has their ones in as well, but Sam hasn't looked like he fits the rest of the talent on the field this far tonight...

Even if he did all three...you wouldn't admit it.

Ive yet to see anything good from him! Yea that pass was high but hit his hands which should have been caught! Ima keep saying hes a bust until he starts showing he can do something!

So if I throw you a bad pass that’s high and it barely touched your hands, is it your fault or mine? I can jump for a ball all day, but if it’s too high, then who’s fault is it?

    • A couple things that took place last year and throughout the off-season that I think will pay dividends this year on the defensive side of the ball.   Brents and Jones showed, in spurts, that they have the chops to play CB in this league and with a full season under their belt plus this off-season I think they will be a very solid tandem on the outside. Add in Flowers and his growth potential and a versatile rookie in Simpson I think the CB room is just fine and ready for the next step. Will they end up with more INT's and PBU's - I certainly think so.   Another coverage area that I think has improved is a full season and off-season of learning the LB spot for Ronnie Harrison and then the drafting of Jaylon Carlies and the singing of the UDFA Craig Young. All are former Safety's that have or had made the transition to LB and bring coverage skills with them and LONG arms - all three have 33" arms or longer which means wingspan and shutting down passing lanes. If the coaching staff isn't married to playing Zaire (Contract) and Speed (Veteran) on passing downs, then 2-3 of those fella's could play in sub packages and clog up passing lanes. They did cut bait with Shaq last year so I would hope that they play the kids that can actually cover versus the highest paid fella.   The addition of Latu, though he is just one man should also help speed up the QB's eyes and lead to more errant throws that could be picked off!??!   All three of those things tied together create a perfect storm of improvement in the weakest areas of our D last year.   As for Safety - I have mixed feelings about the FS spot and there are several 'what if' scenarios:   Cross could have something click and then the mental game meets up with his physical ability - which I feel like he played decent down the stretch last year (last 2-3 games)?   Thomas could return to his rookie form.   Daniel Scott could be a pretty good option but is also technically a rookie after sitting out all last year - though mental reps and walk throughs do help from time to time.   A really off the wall thought - perhaps they move Harrison back to SS and slide Blackmon to FS if the kids (Carlies & Young) prove capable as nickel and dime coverage backers?   Denbow is not the answer....... Dabo will be on year three of using the International Roster Exception..... Maybe they try Ameer Speed at FS with his size and speed combination? Maybe his college teammate Kendall Brooks earns a spot? Maybe Abraham or Simpson take FS and run with it? Both played that spot in college. Maybe Abraham proves he can play the NB and they slide Moore back to FS like he played in college?   Lots and lots of ifs and buts.........
    • Good question    Wiki simply says he's nicknamed AD, I wonder if it had to do with Hebrew pronunciation of the word Adonai, which means Lord.. maybe, it's just that his family or friends started calling him AD  
    • Fever get their 1st win over the Sparks. Clark hit a couple of 3s from real deep. 1 sealed the game late in the 4th.
    • Turner was afraid he was going to commit a 4th foul, so he couldn't be aggressive. He had 2 fouls within the 1st 4 minutes of the game. Questionable fouls.
    • The Mahomes quote was about 10 days ago.   I have found a version of it:   New York Post, May 16.   Their Page 6 Column. It refers to a story Mahomes told about Butker to Pat MacAfee around the Super Bowl.   The story I found it either on ESPN or NFL.com.        As for everything else, I was only re-stating a position I have had since the incident happened.   I don’t know who is joining the discussion mid-stream and might not know my position.      A number of my posts in the thread have said I don’t want Butker touched and then I added that both the NFL and the Chiefs owners have said he’s safe and that end that.   I was just repeating my comment.     I hope I’ve answered your questions.
