  2. Pff backs up something I loved about Haskins that others said he struggled with - getting off his primary read, I believe SIPs guy Cooley thinks DH stays on his primary too long, but once he gets to his 2nd, he’s a natural. That’s where his work habits come in, his footwork in a clean pocket - getting to read 2. https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/draft-dwayne-haskins-isnt-a-finished-product-but-still-possesses-a-valuable-skillset-worth-taking-early-in-the-draft

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Saw somewhere 4.47. He looks faster than that though. Will see. But heck if lets say he runs a 4.45 and that disappoints some and helps him drop to our pick -- then am all for it.
  4. Area he can only improve on with live reps 34% of Dwayne’s TD passes came on throws of more than 20 yards, he was the 9th highest rated QB on throws over 10 yards, he was brilliant when kept clean. Statistics from pff back up everything on his tape — they are issues you expect from a first year starter — issues you can’t succeed with in the NFL, which is why teams let him slide; perhaps to their detriment. His arm, love of the game, mind & release are elite traits - plenty of football players hate football, he lives it, we just need to keep him upright as he adjusts to the speed of the game, we need to give him the chance to replace the bad habits with good ones as the level of competition increases.

    Toronto is better equipped, but theyre too banged up. Good to see Lowry playing well though. Bout time.

    As terrible as this team is, I'd much rather watch this team than the 2018 version. This team gives effort which to a certain degree makes up for the mistakes that they make and the lack of talent. From game #2 in 2018, they just sleepwalked through the entire rest of the season. I miss Jones, Machado, but thats about it.
  7. Canada does comedies like these really well. The last one I saw was Little Mosque on the Prairie. This show reminds me of that. Very good find. Continuum was another series I liked that was also made in Canada.

    WP: 20th anniversary of Snyder

    I completely respect those fans who used to be season ticket holders or even fans who only seen 2-3 games a season and have now completely stopped supporting the team..I know I talk alot of trash about those who don't stay positive about the skins but I truly respect and support your decision to not be positive about the team and to especially not support the team buy no longer purchasing tickets or merchandise. I would like to see Snyder come out him self and take votes on what to do with the franchise... obviously he wouldn't sell but possibly get excellent advice from some very knowledgeable smart folks on how to run a franchise properly?..idk it's hard for me cause I love the hobby from Sept 1 to Feb 10 .. spending time with family..cheering on the skins..oh this just hit me I bet ya can find a video of me on you tube when I was at b dubbs and the skins beat the cowboys last year the way they did(strip return for td)I jumped freaking yelling..lol cowboy fans actually excited for me high fiving me one dude hugged me..it was a blast..I think of all the memories..the wonderful memories..just certain plays in games.. memories that keep me coming back for more..I should just give up being the kind of fan I am but I can't..it's a disease I guess..sooo Snyder or no Snyder the extreme fan in me CAN NOT BE STOPPED..Hail On!!!

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I didn't take the lead on Montez, he was your guy but I had your back on him. I liked him. Day of the draft I said here he was tied with Burns as my #2 desire at 15. Only reason why I paused to put him ahead of Burns at 15 was that I wasn't sure about his medicals. But I recall saying in a post I preferred Sweat over Burns because of his athleticism and he was a more well rounded player. Post combine he seemed out of reach because he was top 10 in just about every mock so at that point I didn't focus on him as much. As for guys we took that some didn't agree with me on before the draft. I liked McLaurun. Not all agreed with me. I liked Harmon too, he was one of my last film reviews I put on here. I don't recall much debates about him. I was a B. Love guy but that was during the 2017 college season -- didn't think he'd be on their radar this time but jazzed to see how it goes. I liked the Toledo receivers before the draft. My favorite of the bunch was Diontae Thompson who I took on the board's mock draft (not everyone on this thread agreed with me about him) was taken in the early 3rd by the Steelers. But I also liked albeit not as much Cody Thompson, Jon'vea Johnson and they are both UDFA. And I liked at TE Dax Raymond. He was one of the dudes I was pushing for us to sign when he wasn't drafted. As much as I liked the draft, I think our UDFA crop was somewhat underwhelming compared to some other teams. http://www.sanduskyregister.com/story/201905080026 Cody Thompson has impressive rookie minicamp with Chiefs https://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/bears/ct-spt-bears-duke-shelley-matt-nagy-20190505-story.html . Tight end Dax Raymond has a legitimate chance to make the Bears’ Week 1 roster. Mark it down. Of the nearly two dozen undrafted free agents the Bears signed after the draft, Raymond is on the short list of players with a golden opportunity to carve out a niche on the 53-man roster. The Bears aren’t overflowing with depth at tight end. The veteran tight ends under contract are Trey Burton, Adam Shaheen and Ben Braunecker. Ian Bunting and Ellis Richardson join Raymond as undrafted free agents on the 90-man roster. Raymond, who played at Utah State, showed off some of his ability with a nifty touchdown catch during red-zone work late in Sunday’s practice. inRead invented by Teads Said Nagy: “He has big hands. And usually when you have big hands you catch a lot of footballs. And he did that. He’s shown that on tape, that he has a really good skill set. I was happy with what he did this week.”
  12. While I agree Rizzo did not put together a winning bullpen, Davey does not put them in positions to win--i.e Barraclough with runners on, dragging Rainey out to 33 pitches, etc. I also don't doubt the preparation the last year plus from this staff has been lacking.

    Save us, Elias, you're our only hope - The 2019 Orioles

    Yea, and a lot of this goes back to the "Oriole Way." If you get called up to play 2B, you will step in a field JUST like the person you replaced. Footwork, cut off structure, etc. You were drafted or signed and played in the minors for a few years, having passed through a series of coaches whom used that system to a tee. There are so many position players on this roster whom were not in the organization a year ago. They're just filling spots at the moment.
  14. Wondering where all the media love is THIS off season..... Can you imagine the pressure KC is feeling right now with other players being asked to finance his contract!!! I guess 84 Mil is a great consolation prize though if you are planning on a *short* starting QB tenure
  15. It’s not a knock, it’s simply something that he can’t take with him. Tua & Kyler both averaged over 10.5 yards per target, Haskins was under 9. Haskins was also far more erratic on down field throws with any pressure. There are reasons no one went ahead of us to get him, there are reasons to believe he will be the steal of the draft. Haskins played 3 good defensive teams, he shredded Michigan, struggled with MSU, & was abysmal v PSU. If that’s what you truly believe, I’ll not try to change your mind, we simply disagree.
  16. College QBs throwing to wide open WRs... welp one could win the Heisman doing that, and dupe the owner that drafts him. I am not sure sitting will help. I feel like proper advanced QB stats would include their stats only throwing into man coverage, vs zone, etc. I recently learned that in Alex's monster 2017 year, he was 40th in the league in throwing into tight windows. Red Flag with our thin WR group. Some like Jay want to see how a QB does under pressure. I want to see how a QB in the face of proper coverage. The pressure angle Jay focuses on can be mitigated by adjusting his play calling. We have all seen it. Studly NFL WRs jammed at the LOS, or in tight man all day, become invisible. Many things are out of the QBs hands. What does the QB do when the coverage is tight? Ground it, force one, throw a McNubb grounder, chuck it in the stands, try and scramble to make something happen? Tight man creates pressure on the QB, extreme pressure. Literally, and figuratively. I want grading on QBs done for when the patterns full. Call it the QB improvisation rating. It took Cousins 5 years to learn he can just run.
  17. Washington went bend but don’t break early, with little success, then began blitzing the middle during their comeback & Haskins struggled fairly significantly with it. He just isn’t used to pressure yet, he throws drifting back & his arm falls a bit out of sync with his body. He’s not the natural athlete some guys are, so footwork becomes far more important for him than a guy like Murray, and footwork around a real threat is nearly impossible to replicate. Haskins does a great job getting his backs where they need to be. Occasionally you see Haskins fooled, but the players are so good that he still gets a positive result in college that he wouldn’t elsewhere, but that’s the case with nearly every QB. I’ve seen draft experts on twitter positively highlight plays that were actually misreads, but they look good in a highlight because he moves protection... which people get excited about .. even if it’s moved the wrong direction.

    Game of Thrones Season 8

    That was all perfectly said. Those are both fantastic moments and we get scenes and callbacks like that so consistently it's almost hard to fathom. Don reading Dante's Inferno at the beginning of a particular season which is the season where he literally loses everything and ends the season confronting his own personal hell, his childhood home. It's just masterful. I'm going to have to watch it again.

    Game of Thrones Season 8

    Don't sell yourself short my friend. You pick it up in the emotion that it makes you feel. You don't have to spell it all out rationally to get it, it's sub-rational. That is the communicative power and beauty of art.
  21. But does it matter that his yards per target average is low if it added up to 5000 yards and 50 touchdowns. Sure it was only one season and doesn't mean it will translate but this seems like when you critique a quarterback for taking what the defense gives him instead of dictating the offense to the defense, sure the former is easier and far less sexy but if it works and racks up points and wins I'll take it. Having said this I watch almost no college football so I am well aware that you know more about this than I do.
  22. Oh I agree, he isn't absolved by any means. What I meant is that it is obvious by the things he says that he has little understanding about anything other than manipulating property values and branding himself. I was just pushing all his personal awful qualities to the side for a moment to explain why I think it is dangerous to have empty-headed people in such positions of power because of how easy it is for them to be guided and molded. Take Dubya for example, when he was running he outright admitted he knew next to nothing about foreign policy and we saw how Cheney basically orchestrated every single thing. Bush still of course gets blame and rightfully so because ultimately he had to sign off on everything, but it just goes back to the danger of having an empty suit in the oval office.

    Seriously, they did a ****ing 36 page report?!?!
  24. I guess one of the things I'm struggling to understand with this whole argument about Haskins is why he gets knocked because of the the supreme talent that he played around, but Tua isn't judged on the same aspects...or Kyler Murray for that matter. Both of those quarterbacks have thrown or are throwing to wide receivers far more talented then the ones Haskins had. I don't think there is any dispute on that one. I'm not a big Haskins guy, but I think the unknown of his talent based on lack of body of work or playing time in general is peeling off on lateral discussions like the talent surrounding him that I believe carry less value. Struggling with handling pressure in the pocket , I get that knock. Having success because you have talent around you? Yeah everyone needs that

    The former owner died at 84. With Snyder being 54 that's another 30 years... I've made it 20, so if I get to the gym a bit more and change my diet I can probably ride this one out... Everything will be okay...
