Most Improved Player So Far

Recommended Posts

There are a ton of doom and gloom posts….and to an extent, rightfully so. However, I want to bring attention to one player who has been dogged on here before but has actually shown decent improvement so far this year. Rock Ya Sin. He hasn’t been a world beater but I haven’t noticed him getting nearly as burnt as he was last year. Thoughts?

Henry steamrolled Leonard while Leonard was trying to bunch the ball and Leonard was off balance at that point, I fixed it for you. The replay shows what happened better.

Leonard needs to learn to tackle first. The tv guys said Leonard told them he doesn’t care if he gets steam rolled he is going to go after the ball.

So many people don't know momentum. Henry was coming full steam while Leonard was fighting off a block predictable outcome lol.

Thanks, I was on here yesterday trying to explain this to people I seen the play live, at first it looked like Henry did run him over but the replay showed that Leonard was off balance going for the ball coming off a block. Some people just don't like Leonard, why I have no idea. I can nitpick everything too like Warner last night for the 49ers being burned like 3 times in pass coverage by Rodgers.

AQM. 
 

Underrated overachiever! Every team needs a AQM. 

Yup, totally playing above what we thought was his ceiling. 

We still need an upgrade, but he's doing much much better than I expected.

Yeah, easily Rock. Right up till after training camp, the narrative was about how we had two CBs and needed a 3rd guy. Yeah, that 3rd guy has been the best of the lot......by some margin.

Pretty sure he's our highest rated DB right now. PFF has him in the 70s. 

Some credited him with a TD vs the Rams (I disagree as he was holding his zone, and it was either on the LB or S), but he's easily playing better than our other DBs right now, and a lot like 2nd half 2019. 

I just hope it continues.

Bobby O. Looked much better game 2 to game 3. We need that to continue

He's leading the team in missed Ts, twice as many as the next guy. 

Just not that good vs the run.

Blackmon has had some good tackling.

2nd most missed Ts on the team, and highest missed T % of our DBs that have started 3 games.

He was shedding a block, and prioritized punching over tackling. 

He still got trucked. He was lucky there were other guys around to do the tackling. 

Not sure prioritizing the punch is a great strategy with Henry.

Blankenship has been money! Good for him! 

 

Rock has been better than I expected too. Still not amazing, but playable... and possibly our best corner so far, which is a scary statement. 

He has been our best corner by a wide margin

I didn’t realize it but Pittman is on track for 1200 yards. 

 

He was talking like a guy ready to be WR1 all offseason so good on him for backing it up. Unfortunately, we need even more.

Also, Wentz needs to start finding Campbell too not just Pittman....it's not like Parris hasn't gotten open severally.

I agree with others he is more of a poscession  receiver. It would be nice if Reich would use Campbell speed more. Campbell needs to be used like Samual in SF.

 

If anyone noticed the Green Bay game the other night their go too guys are Jones and adams. Pittman needs to be that guy we can go too in critical spots. Just not sure he is that type of WR. We will see bur he is off to a good start. I don’t mind having a couple guys you can depend on when they need points.

Hard to tell if he’d get that kind of opportunity we don’t exactly have a line worth going through progressions with when we have this lovely style of playcalling haha

    • Sorry brother. Didn't look at your time stamp, and we've known about TY returning for a bit, so assumed...   I do like the thought of Coutee sticking though if TY retires. If he can stay healthy, I think he'd be good with Wentz after a full off season. He and Campbell would make a nice 1-2 speed punch.
    • I agree we need to see more. But if he continues the level of play and stays healthy, it's a no brainer.
    • Well, yeah.  That's actually the joke.
    • Overall WR Grade - B  Pittman - B+ 73.6 YPG, on track for 1250 yards for the season Leads the team in 1st downs, and no drops Note - I don't see him (or X in general) as a #1 WR, but he's doing enough to be a #1, and more than enough as a #2. Pascal - C+ 40.8 YPG, on track for almost 700 yards. Leads the team in drops (3), but also leads the team in receiving TDs (3) Note - He's a starter and getting top 2 snaps, so his grade is what it is. He does do all the little things well despite not having the stats Campbell - C+/B- 27.8 YPG, on track for about 500 yards, and no drops A lot less targets and snaps than Pittman or Pascal, but has a yards per touch similar to Pittman, and better than Pascal.  Seems to be staying healthy so far (huge knock on wood) Note - You can see him improving. Best used in slants and gos, but we just don't run those routes a lot. I hope that changes. Great game last week. Strachan  No grade as we haven't seen a lot, but has caught 2 on 3 targets and no drops. I understand he may need route work, but no reason not to use him on simple possession routes on 3rd or in the RZ. Like MAC, just a waste of elite traits due to our conservative play calling, especially in the RZ. Dulin No grade here either, but did look pretty good last game. The guy has nice speed that we just don't take advantage of on slants and gos... Harris No grade either, just saw him a little on 2 temp elevation weeks. Another waste of elite traits. Hilton - NA Really hope he adds a new dimension to our offense, or at minimum takes some doubles to open up Pittman or others. Overall TE Grade - B Mo Alie-Cox - B+ Only 9 catches but highest yards per touch on the team, zero drops, 7 1st downs, and 2TDs The lack of use is still a headscratcher Doyle - B Only 11 catches, but 6 were for 1st downs. Grading well (career best) We're just not using TEs a lot in the receiving game.  Grasnon - NA No grade here due to lack of usage.  In his few targets, used a lot like Burton (shallow targets) with a very low ADOT (3.5) Note - I've mentioned it before, but he was used vertically in college, now more or less a getting short slot like passes. Overall RB Grade - B  Taylor - B+  Leading the team in yards from scrimmage (524 yards) and has a 4.5 AVG 65.4 YPG rushing, 39.4 receiving. On track for 1100+ rushing and 650+ receiving.  12.3 yards per target, which is WR like...... (almost twice as much as Hines' 6.5) Note - slow start rushing, but have to cut him some slack for lack of carries, and bad OL play. Still needs to improve vision/patience in zone running Mack - B 4.3 AVG in limited snaps, and it hasn't been during clean up time late in games Hines - C+ Still good, but his AVG has taken a step back (no shock with the OL), his catch % has declined a little (plus on drop), and his YPT is half of what JT's is. Note - I think his use will increase as the OL improves. Right now, it's just harder to run him as a between the tackles RB. Willkins  No grade due to little use     WR Note  M Pittman WR -  97% / 90% / 93% / 86% / 88% /  60.8 / 68.8 / 72.7 / 69.7 / 71.2 /  Z Pascal WR - . 91% / 91% / 89% / 82% / 86% /  64.9 / 62.0 / 57.7 / 57.4 / 58.5 /  P Campbell WR -  61% / NA / 80% / 44% / 55% /  62.6 / NA / 56.9 / 53.8 / 60.1 /  M Strachan WR - .  24% / 51% / NA / 7% / 3% /  75.2 / 62.3 / NA / 61.9 / 61.8 /  A Dulin WR -   8% / 39% / 11% / 17% / 33% /  NA / 59.5 / 58.6 / 64.4 / 65.9 /  D Harris WR NA / 3% / NA / NA / NA /  NA / NA / NA / NA / NA /  TE Note -  J Doyle TE - 59% / 70% / 57% / 30% / 72% /  64.7 / 71.2 / 68.1 / 72.1 / 75.1 /  M Alie-Cox TE -   51% / 40% / 46% / 69% / 45% /  50.0 / 51.2 / 56.1 / 61.4 / 65.2 /  K Granson TE -   9%  / 9% / 20% / 42% / 12% /  NA / NA / NA / 49.9 / 51.6 /  RB Note -  J Taylor RB -   55% / 45% / 48% / 51% / 52% 60.3 / 60.5 / 64.1 / 71.2 / 73.8 N Hines RB -  45% / 37% / 56% / 31% / 38% /  69.6 / 60.9 / 67.9 / 64.2 / 64.7 /  M Mack RB -   NA / 19% / NA / 31% / 14% /  NA / 53.8 / NA / 57.9 / 60.8 / 
    • Lol, yeah but imagine in today's league you'd just get notified of anything like that. If he makes it to your practice squad no one else wanted him.
