  1. Taylor Heinicke was a 4 year starter and a really good player at ODU. For his first two years as a starter, ODU was FCS. For his junior year, I think ODU did a transition year and then his senior year than were FBS. His numbers went down with the improvement in competition but he still put up good numbers and his team was usually at a talent disadvantage overall at the FBS level. The announcer made a mistake when he said he was the QB of ODU when they beat VT. Heincke last season in college was 2014 and ODU didn't beat VT until 2018 so there was a four year gap. Ve
  2. The first one wasn't really double coverage because we had two receivers in the area.
  3. I didn't think Fields had a good game, but the game didn't change anything for me. Lawrence is still the clear number 1 and Fields and Wilson are still top 10 guys. I don't think this game and the Indiana game has made me question Fields ceiling at all; however its made me aware his floor is not as high as some hoped.
  4. Javon Leake was a really good return man at Maryland. I am not sure exactly what trait made him a great return man in college. He is fast but nothing elite. He only ran a 4.65 at the combine in the forty which is very disappointing, but from watching him for 3 years at Maryland I can tell you he plays faster than that. He shared the workload at running back with Anthony McFarland, the 4th round pick of the Steelers. McFarland was faster, but I thought Leake was the better of the two running backs. They could both hit the homerun but Leake was better at getting the 4 yard gains
  5. Very strong recruiting class by Maryland, but on paper definitely stronger on the defense than offense. I'd give the defensive haul an A and the offensive haul maybe a B-. Next year they definitely need a good QB recruit and 4 or so solid O-Line prospects.
  6. Since I am a big Maryland Terrapin fan, I'll give my thoughts on all their possible prospects even though I don't see any being a great fit for WFT 1. Running Back Jake Funk: An effective zone runner, he lacks NFL athleticism, but is a very effective college zone runner. He leads college football in yards per carry at 8.6. One thing that he does extremely well for the college level is pass pro. The drop off in pass pro is noticeable when he is out of the game. He has a great understanding of what he needs to do in pass pro. Unfortunately due to getting covid he only got
  7. Or the coach made the right decision for their scheme but in a different scheme it may not have been the right decision.
  8. I have no idea where he stacks up nationally, but he is a local kid.
  9. Watching live football, I have never been a fan of Feleipe Franks
  10. In general the Lions winning is bad for us. We played them so when they win it helps our strength of schedule (which is bad because the tiebreaker for two teams with equal records is who had the worst strength of schedule). Since the Lions will have a better strength of schedule we just need to finish with an equally bad record to pick ahead of them.
  11. Part of me thinks the throw across the body wasn't a good throw because its so dangerous.
  12. That list of the top 20 QB's according to PFF is interesting, but it didn't confirm by general impression. A few QB's are higher than I would have thought and that includes 1. Cousins at 5 2. Brady at 6 3. Daniel Jones at 12 14. Newton at 17 A few QB's are lower than I would have thought and that includes: 1. Brees at 14 2. Roethlisberger at 19 There is also a lower correlation between QB play and winning than I would have thought
  13. I don't think I like Wilson enough to give up two first rounders (this year's and next years) plus a second rounder for him. I do like him though, just not confident on how he translates.
  14. Even if you follow CFB its not always obvious at this point who will be the top prospects the following year. Last year at this time Zach Wilson and Trey Lance were not on my radar at all. By contrast I was very aware of Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields. Of those two I viewed Trevor Lawrence as a likely future number 1 pick, but I don't think Fields was firmly in my head as a first round pick last year at this time. So even if you follow college football its a bit hard to know what the next year QB class will look like.
  15. In terms of stockpiling QB's its not a horrible idea but the nature of the NFL is that you always have immediate needs at other positions that need to be addressed and limited cap space. Further it can only be done through the draft where you have the second QB on a rookie contract. If you pay your starter 30 million, you simply cannot get another starter quality QB in free agency because they would cost 20 million a year and that 20 million a year would take up your crucial cap space. Thus if you were going to stock pile a QB you need to do get the second QB from the draft. But if you tak
