Brandon Beane to meet with media via conf call at noon

Recommended Posts

Listening to BB now.

 

Definitely sounds like the arrival of Singletary and how good he looks changed some of the organizational thinking on Shady.

 

They looked around to find a "right fit" for Shady (trade partner) but didn't find one.

 

BB dodging the question about whether or not Shady was offered a pay cut.  No answer.

 

Singletary has a good grasp of pass protection concepts; knows where the extra man is coming from that he has to pick up.

 

BB not factoring in LeSean's age.  OL wasn't good enough last year;  put that on BB himself.

Shady's time was just up. Pay cuts and bad OL play excuses would not have mattered or supercede the emergence of Singletary. The kid went out and won the job. He has arrived.

The way Devin burst around the side and trusted his blockers vs the Lions for a TD was reassuring for our team. Our O line wants to do one thing: run the play as intended and let RB follow the path. Devin showed he can do that...Shady maybe not so much.

Just listening to BB discuss the issue of trading McCoy last year at the deadline.

 

He definitely down played all that, saying they got a few phone calls, some were just sniffing around, didn't want to get into details but there was never a hard offer or anything.

 

There was a lot of hot Twitter crap at that time from the usual sources saying Philly really wanted McCoy.  Either that was never true or Beane is playing that down b/c he could have done a deal and decided not too.

 

He makes it sound like there wasn't enough "there" to actually move Shady last year at the deadline.  Which I find interesting.

I know, McCoy still possesses skill, but apparently the time was now to move on. Singletary is good himself and he should improve incrementally with time and experience.

Bill Walsh used to say it’s better to release someone a year too early vs. a year too late.  Still shocking though.

In that case, last year would have been the perfect time for it. At this point we’re a year too late

Perhaps. 

But I think pretty much any skills back would have found it difficult to impossible to run behind our line last year. 
 

It's notable that Chris Ivory, the ultimate "churn the legs take 5 guys with him for 2-4 yds" guy got as many YPC as McCoy.

Exaclty.  Anyone with confusion on this topic need only look at last years starting o line and those that are back starting again.

That's not the full story there, though, for sure.

 

 

 

Should have taken any offer.

Exactly...this is part of the process. Shift gears now and get on with it...break the familiarity.

GM doing his talk and rightfully so.  His job is to put the best 53 players on the field that maximizes the chance of this team to win games
