How Shaq Lawson Bought In and Renewed His Commitment

Yet it's 2018 and the irony of that classic Whaley whopper persists....

 

As the years in his rookie contract tick away, it will continue to be so.  

Nothing like a first round pass rusher who can’t rush the passer.

He was on my son's flight out of Buffalo to CLT Sunday after the game

 

Back to Charlotte?

 

It's commendable that he showed the loyalty to a former teammate/friend to be there for the funeral........but fwiw one of the knocks on Lawson the past two seasons has been his Wooderson-esque attraction to his previous football stop.    His rep is that he would find any reason to go back to Clemson.

Yeah - assume that he was on his way back for the service.

Shaq Lawson College educated issues the following shining and eloquent beacon of the english language:

 

‘”Man, Jordan Phillips bring that dog. Like, we got dogs on d-line, but man, Jordan made it more of a dog. All of us dogs but he’s got the hype, he gets you crunk, he refuse to get beat,” Lawson said after playing with Phillips for just one game. “You like that on the d-line. He’s nasty about it. So when I line up on the field out there I be feeling that energy. Because I got juice but he make me feel more juiced.”‘

he was first round pick at 19th... i dont think he contributes more than McCoy... we get 2nd round pick form eagles, we will have at best zay jones (2nd round pick in 2017).  KEEP MCCOY.  I DONT TRUST FRONT OFFICE.

No, the service took place during the Bills game on Sunday.

 

Monday was an off-day.

 

He probably got back for Tuesday practice.

Lawson is playing well.  People keep saying they moved him to DT. Not true.  They have played him at DE in some 3-4 looks that aligns him between the G/OT.  It's a nice change because he plays the run well and allows Lorax/Hughes to rush from a 2 pt stance.  He has also played ok as a traditional 4-3 DE.  Still limited pass rush but more stout at DE than PED Murhpy.  Most long runs given up this year were to the defensive right side - Hughes and Yarbrough

yep, Rex tried his best to ruin his career and almost got there, fortunately the trickeration Rex defense is gone and an attacking defense is in.  as Shaq says , just go be "dogs" and attack.  most of these young kids its all they know, so go with it.   its just football.  trust the McBeanes.   added Taron Johnson in the 3rd round, plus now the two Phillipses; trust it.. these guys know what they are doing...  8&8 out

The problem is that too many people assume because he was drafted in round 1 that it meant he's automatically supposed to be a great pass rusher.  HE's more a solid all around type guy, plays the run well, gets some pressure in the pass rush, they can move him inside, and such.

Three defensive coordinators? Wrong.

 

That’s one change. He went from Rex to McD.

Dude are you really blaming Lawsons career strugglss on rex ryan? Lawson just isnt that good. Hes a servicable back up. Hes not a good pass rusher.

No the problem is that he was a statistically productive pass rusher in college and got over-drafted because of some bad/lazy personnel work.

 

I said when he was drafted that his ceiling was Melvin Ingram.........a good complementary pass rusher..........and his floor was Courtney Upshaw.

 

And when healthy he's been Courtney Upshaw.    And he's year 3 Courtney Upshaw so far.

 

Courtney Upshaw was a nice run defender but teams lost interest because like Shaq he just didn't get to QB's............and that's the name of the game.

He was the best playcaller on offense. Roman had devised the plays but somehow stunk on gameday at calling the right plays at the right time.

He's got a good shot at sticking around long term as he's shown the right work ethic and has the positional versatility McDermott really seems to value. I'm a fan, hope he keeps getting better.

It will be interesting to see where he sticks in the league. He is a great contain guy, unfortunately for him, his skill set is two decades past its shelf life.

 

I'm not sure what his 5th year option ends up costing, but I'm not sure he is worth it. Good player, but totally over drafted at 19 by Rex.

Overdrafted?  People love to use revisionist history.

I don't agree. I give you credit for all the sourcing you do. I just don't recall him ever being projected as a good run stopper, set the edge DE. It was either he was going to be amazing against the pass or he was banged up and not worth the 1st.

 

I remember him being considered a steal where they got him. I just think as far as his skillset goes he was over drafted. Guys who play like him aren't sought out in the first round. That's all I meant with that post, I'm given the benefit of hindsight also. 

 

At this point, what he does, he looks like a reach in my opinion. I'm not trying to say he's an awful player

Like the rest of the defense, he's played well the last few games.  Had a sack today.  Forced the fumble last week.  Getting good pressure.  He's a good rotational DE, but definitely not 1st round talent.
