Saw him and Lewis are both out Thursday with concussions.

With Lewis out we should see even more of Dayo. Which is good because he seems to play the run well. I want to see where he’s at as a pass rusher.

In Gus' system, Darius now plays MIKE.  

 

He has probably never wanted to do that out of fear that his WR body will not hold up (although a Gus MIKE covers a lot)...so he's trying to pull the Andrew Luck thing....only more covertly.

We don't need him anyhow.  EJ Speed is the best player on D now.  Let him play.  

You do realize that Leonard created 10 turnovers on his own last year. Dude if you are going to troll then make sure it is legit. You look bad with that post.

Damn friendly fire baseball type of play. 

Yeah that guy 'got skinny' at the worst time for both our guys there. That had to hurt Franklin also even if he wasn't injured.

Leonard shouldn't be playing MIKE anyways it reminds me of Quinton Coryatt he absolutely dominated from WILL and then they moved him to MIKE and wasn't the same. So there I will agree with the people who say we need better coaching, Bradley needs to get his head out of his *.

Honestly one of the bright spots yesterday was Dayo and Payes play.

What does that have to do about this years team?  He has 1 tackle this year. How many TD’s did Luck have in 2016?

It has a lot to do with this years team, we are missing a guy that created 10 turnovers just a year earlier that helped us win roughly half our games. So you think missing a key guy on defense just a year later has no impact on our defense. Man dude, that is nuts. I guess when Ray Lewis retired it had no impact on the Ravens lmao, they were the same team (sarcasm), this post is ridiculous chuckling homer simpson GIF

We have no idea on how many turnovers he would create this year. It might be none. What someone does the previous year is no guarantee on what they will do the next. They may only be a shell of what they once were. Look how fast Greg Norman lost it in golf. Look how fast Ray Fosse lost it in baseball. There are hundreds of examples in all sports over the years.

Come on, really. So you think Leonard at the age of 27 would go from all-pro to stinking? lmao . Him being out has had a big impact on our team.

Has anyone seen an update to his injury? I know they said head/neck injury post game but He was bleeding from his nose really bad after that hit

27 years old. Often injured. Great resigning.

Bob Sanders 2.0. Undersized, high energy, hard hitter who doesn't have the body to back up the desire.

I called it

Your also forgetting. His replacements can actually stop the run and not just pile hop.

Yeah he clearly told Franklin hey hit me so hard you give me a concussion and break my nose so I can quit because my body won’t hold up but I don’t want it to look like that’s what I am doing…

Until this year Leonard had missed something like 8 games in his career.  Sanders played two seasons in his career when he missed fewer than 8 games.  Leonard has a long way to go to be Bob Sanders on the injury front.

I don't want to be the one bringing the mood down, but ... even before his concussion - did anyone think Leonard was moving well? I thought he looked slow/heavy/lumbering... very different from what we are used from him. I really hope his injury hasn't robbed him off his athleticism and nimbleness :(

Probably just rust from the rest and recovery. It usually takes few games to get right back into the full speed, even if the mind is ready.

Eh a helmet to face hit that busted open his face isn’t being injury prone. That said, I do feel he’s overpaid and has been since the day that was signed.

I will have to watch again. But when Reich made his comments about Leonard not being ready to play winning football…that’s how I took it. That he had lost something from the surgery and was rehabbing it.

    • I've watched him a few times. Sometimes I think what you've posted here, but increasingly I think this kid might be pretty good.  I think the Bears have a pretty good one here. 
    • I do not want to fire Ballard.   I think he is an excellent talent evaluator and i expect him to learn from his errors.     That being said and to answer the question, i've always liked tom telesco.  He was mentored by polian so i would look at his staff and who he has trained.  
    • Kellen Moore is another one as well. Did you see the way they used Ceedee Lamb? They had him all over the place.   I’m not disagreeing with you. I just posted that for context since it is floating around out there. Like it’s hard for me to believe that Ballard (who is very gun shy when it comes to trading up in the 1st or drafting QB’s high) really had this plan to get Fields all layed out, and then Reich/Irsay demanded that he scrap the plan and go get Wentz instead.    There is reason to believe that sometimes Irsay has his hands on things though. Getting rid of Wentz and hiring Saturday definitely have his fingerprints on it. Honestly I sometimes think the “Reich wanted Wentz and Irsay wanted Ryan” thing is sometimes Ballard’s last remaining fans trying to give him a pass on so many missed shots at QB. I feel like those are the same people who insist there was no way the Colts could have traded up for Herbert or Tua in 2020.
    • Have you ever considered adding to this conversation?     
    • Not the answer, he stinks. This is what a lot of people don't take into account, THE DRAFT IS A CRAPSHOOT. Many in here were wanting Herbert in hindsight after the year he had last year. Herbert has a 20-22 record as of now and has a good team around him. Statistically he was much better last year, he has regressed. Baker went #1 in the draft and he isn't any better than Jacoby Brissett IMO. Some in here admitted they wanted Leaf over Peyton. Russell for the Raiders was a can't miss according to most - he was so bad that it was laughable and he went #1. Brady was the greatest all-time steal ever because that never happens getting someone like him in round 6. You can get a guy that is similar to Mahomes with a mid round pick if you do you homework but that is still rare. Fields is MEH, Bears can't even beat an over the hill Rodgers at home.
