Are we going to sign any real players

 

Agreed. Brandon Beane needs to make a big splash move. What's he waiting for?

Diggs was the splash. Now we need to find depth. I'd like to see Liuget back, a veteran RB for depth and maybe another OLB and OT.

......until BB and the Pats* block a punt and win the game because of it.

 

Don’t worry about all that winning and losing stuff! You can ignore ST because they all get orange slices at half time, and a participation trophy at the end of the season. 

 

Oh, wait.....this is the NFL. Special teams count! Every single play counts. One mistake can (and in that case did) decide a game. One game can decide in or out of the playoffs, home field or on the road. It’s a big deal.

From a Steelers Fan

  • Damn good spot for Big Dirty
  • Will be a fine LB4
  • Will try to murder at least one a game on kick coverage
  • Probably will be better as an ILB
  • Total try-hard, gets his role

Sounds like a solid depth piece to me

This right here is enough to like this signing.

Every team should have a few guys like this, but they are not very common.  I’m betting he makes a few big plays for us on Special Teams.

Love reading the draft profiles of some of these FA's on their 2nd contract ..here's Tyler's.   Especially like the NFL Comparison ... shockingly AJ Klein ... so we signed AJ in 2020 and his back-up in same FA class.  Nice work Beane.

 

http://www.nfl.com/draft/2016/profiles/tyler-matakevich?id=2555171

 

The 2015 Bronco Nagurski Award winner and three-time first-team All-American Athletic Conference pick isn't the biggest player on the field but is usually among the most productive. This four-year starter in the middle accumulated over 100 tackles in each season for the Owls, totaling 493 for his career. In his sophomore year, he led the nation with 8.8 solo tackles a game. And his tackles aren't just catching ball carriers after theyve gone through the hole, as he's had 40 stops behind the line of scrimmage. Add in five interceptions and five pass breakups during his award-winning senior campaign, and it appears there's not much Matakevich can't do.

 

Draft Projection

Round 7 or priority free agent

Sources Tell Us

"Not big, not fast and not strong. Hard to make it as an NFL linebacker without those elements. With that said, the kid makes a bunch of plays. Production matters and he has it." -- AFC North Executive

Wide Right:

Thanks for sharing. That freaking hilarious! They compared him to...AJ Klein? Our newly acquired AJ Klein? That’s either a wild coincidence or OBD really does have a plan!

Special teams is 1/3rd of the game.

Count the plays offense and defense are on the field compared to special teams and then check your math.  😉

Special teams are not irrelevant  

But they are the red headed step child of the three phases of the game. 😁
