Duck Hodges.... Won’t Last

Recommended Posts

I’ve watched this guys highlights and I think he’s a meltdown waiting to happen. Kinda like how Kyle Allen, Minshew and arguably Brandon Allen came down to earth once they faced a real defense. In Brandon Allens case that defense was of course the Bills.

 

When I watch this guy all I see are screens and little dump passes. We know all about captain checkDowns; that strategy doesn’t last. Sooner or later he’s going to face a defense that will force him into some real NFL throws and we’ll see why he is an undrafted QB. I’ve watched some of his intermediate / long passes and they seem to hang in the air for an eternity; “a pick waiting to happen” as Jalen Ramsey once famously said about our boy Josh Allen (but for different reasons).

 

To me, a poor man’s Doug Flutie even comes to mind when I watch him 😂 couldn’t resist. I think the NFL and fans just love these backup QB stories but the fact is, for all of them, they initially benefit from the lack of film available and sooner or later they face real adversity when a good defense takes away what they do well (and since many of these guys are one dimensional it becomes an issue)

 

now, having said all of this, I am still nervous as hell about this game because on the flip side, our QB seems to ALSO struggle against real defenses... and the Steelers have one. 
 

I would give Buffalo the edge, but this may as well be a wild card playoff game, and it could get crazy. I don’t think I’ve been more nervous for a game this season. Heck I spent all of this past  week being more nervous towards the steeler game than the ravens game! Dont know how I’m going to get through this week (and it’s also why I was bummed when we got flexed to SNF... don’t know how I’m gonna make it through the day anxiously waiting for the outcome of this game)

i agree, i think delvin is going to run into hard times against buffalo, our coaching staff puts together a solid defensive game plan every week it seems. its really impressive. i am worried about JA a little but i think facing this Ravens team gave him a glimpse of what he will be seeing on sunday night. Lets Go Buffalo!!!!!!

More worried about our offense against their defense. Ravens have a stiff defense. Steelers are even better.

If Allen completes under 50% of his passes we lose. We need Allen to be efficient. Duck Hodges doesn’t concern me. He’s a sitting duck if we bring the pass rush.

Not sure about that... ravens defense has been shutting down good teams for the most part while the Steelers haven't played many powers.

Ravens D is better. Ever since the loss to CLE they’ve been dominant. Don’t let the ranks fool you.

Fitzpatrick took that D to another level......Watt is a constant concern.   They are playing as well as anyone over the last 8 games

The Steelers can't beat you with their offense and they know that.

Mason Rudolph was killing them. Hodges isn't killing them - they just hang in there and let their defense and ST try to win it.

It's a helluva nickname for a QB. When someone yells "Hey Duck!" does he turn around, or hit the deck?

That TD he threw yesterday to the left corner of the endzone is a pretty big NFL throw.

The last game that was this bad for our O was against the Pats, Allen took a lot from it and it helped him his game. Let’s hope the same thing happens with yesterday’s beating. Pitt is definitely gonna be doing a lot of the same stuff the Ravens did.

This is me. I don't know what the hell to do all day. Need to wear my four year old out so he'll go to bed early. I normally put him to bed every night, and that's around 8:20-8:30.

 

Little sh*t needs to be worn out and in the bed by 7:30!😂

Yep that’s right around when they got Marcus peters. That trade shifted there defense. Peters, Jimmy Smith and Humphrey is a ridiculous cb trio. That’s what gives them the flexibility to blitz 48% of the time (heading into the Buffalo game).

I’ve got a 3 year old and close the door at 7:45/8pm. Good luck!

Why would I be concerned about someone I hadn't heard of 5 weeks ago?

 

Allen v the Steelers defense is another story.  He has to be able to outshine Hodges even though he couldn't Jackson this past Sunday.
