Not sure what they see in Ducasse

Recommended Posts

Dawkins - Teller - Groy - Miller - Mills deserves to be the starting OL from what I see. Anyone disagree? Ducasse is the most unathletic lineman on the team. Horrible technique.

Ducasse was terrible last night. He looked lost. 

 

I would love to see Teller start over him.

He's trash.  Either he gets beat by his man or he takes a penalty.  They really need to upgrade at this position.

Ha!🤣

 

Here we go again.

Ducasse Hate ‘18; Thread #1

 

We all believe he’s substandard and have since McDermott benched Miller last preseason, while pontificating his effectiveness. Coach still believes he’s a starting-worthy OL. If he’s right and we’re all wrong, then to prove it, somebody has to step in or up and overwhelm.

 

im hoping Teller takes the position like a brute.

I'm sick to my stomach that this guy is still on the team. He is horrible! You have to put a lot of the blame on O-line coach Juan Castillo. I'm not a fan of Castillo. How do you take a team that has been ranked #1 in rushing for 2 years to out of the top 5? Plus we had the same oline.

Ducasse is okay in small spaces, but he's awful on the second level - I agree about the athleticism. 

Bodine had a bad day as well, and I think pairing them is regrettable. For the first 9 plays, the best offensive lineman was ... Mills.

Not a big fan of Ducasse, but the holding call on him was while a Browns player had his hands in his facemask, with no penalty on them. Wish someone else, like Teller, would step up at Guard.

Duckass is mauler, according to Castillo and they like him in the run game. Apparently they neglect to mention it isn’t 1980 and pass protection is a critical skill for an interior OL. He doesn’t move his feet laterally but relies on his strength to win, hence the holding penalties.

Dawkins wasn't exactly stellar last night in his matchup with Myles Garrett to put things mildly.

Yeah. Can't move his feet.

Have to disagree on Mills. I don't think another team would sign him for anything. He sucks. Wonder if McD will put him on suicide

watch the night bedore the Chargers come too town? It will not be pretty....

Dawkins set way to deep. Easy money for someone like Garrett. Easily corrected.

Unfortunate. Dawkins is the least of our worries.

Exactly. The o-line suffers from severe neglect. They knew this after the season ended. 

Would anyone want to put a rokkie Q-back behind that O-line? Even Clay forgot how too block and he's a TE.

His screw up took out the starting QB, likely for 8 weeks.

He got beat. Hasn't happened often. All LTs get beat.

There's a reason why Ducasse rode the pine in his previous NFL stops except when the starters ahead of him were injured.  He's NEVER been very good, no matter what the statboys at PFF and their questionable methodology for rating OLers and OL performance claim.  That he's now playing next to Bodine, who is easily a downgrade from Wood at C, exposes more of his weaknesses.

 I gut not be such a bad thing after all?

 

in dawkins’ defense, Myles Garrett is a Monster.  He’s going to do that to people regardless of how good the LT is.

The real question is when/if the coaching staff is going to see the obvious as well. I’ve kept an eye on Teller during both games and he clearly knows what he’s doing out there. They can mess around for the next two weeks but come time for the Opener I’m trusting the Process will put the best five out there.

Give me a break. That was nothing more than  a routine Sack. Dawkins didn’t whiff on Garrett. McCarron didn’t get pancaked. Nothing to see there.
