Edmunds is too slow physically and mentally to be even considered for DPOY. Mr. Whitewash.    We need to upgrade that position.     

The takeaway is most Bills fans criminally undervalue Edmunds. He probably won’t win DPOY but he has DPOY talent and ability.

I fully admit I was skeptical. What I saw of him in college concerned me. However, once the pick was announced, he was OUR GUY and I was hopeful.  Thrilled how he has developed! 

 

There is a reason we pay big bucks for our FO and scouts. So many people here think they are experts, and a few I respect a lot. But we are chumps on a couch compared to our professional talent evaluators. 

 

Having said all that, I think our chumps might give the Bengals FO a run for their money!   :)

He is 23 years old...

"Some would argue he’s yet to consistently live up to his ceiling as a young, imposingly built talent, but he’s still an impressive guy to have roaming the middle. His three-year production (355 tackles, 14 QB hits, 5.5 sacks) earned him more time in Buffalo."

Yes he did, but don't bother Badol with facts if they disrupt his narrative.

 

Narratives are way more important to some guys.

 

DPOY is certainly wildly unlikely, but he's already playing very well and could certainly improve a lot more with Star in front of him again and as he gets more experience.

The thing is, Pro Bowl level isn't very descriptive.........that could mean you are the best MLB in the league or the 18th best.

 

That distinction matters.

 

The NFC has A LOT of good MLB'ers that are clearly better than Edmunds...........the AFC has very few.

 

When you start talking about being All Pro........then it's a lot less subjective.

 

 

 

Subjective indeed, as your bad take here clearly shows. The AFC has a bunch of good young MLBs who've played very well the past two to three years. Edmunds is certainly one of them.

You mean "facts" like the NFL DPOY is only based on regular season production?    Your ignorance of this "fact" is not a defense.

 

Edmunds playoff production doesn't move the needle either...........it mostly just adds 4 more games to his very modest resume as a playmaker........4 more games to his running streaks of contests with no forced fumbles or interceptions........and adds just one sack and one TFL to his unimpressive raw numbers.

 

You win postseason honors for game changing plays over the course of a season........plays that turn the ball over or cost the opponent both a down PLUS yardage.    That's why DL and pass rushing LB's who get sacks and back 7 players who get interceptions and/or FF and RF win the award.     

 

But if you think Edmunds is an All Pro caliber MLB calling it "wildly" unlikely that he wins DPOY is a hell of a way of showing it.:doh:

Why is that exactly ?? 

While Tremaine Edmunds has all the physical ability to be great he has no instinct for the position. Now if you told me he was switching to OLB then we would have a better chance.

 

Regarding Ed Oliver I feel like he has also been playing out of position. With Star coming back and having another off-season I'm more optimistic regarding Ed Oliver turning the corner than Edmunds right now but they BOTH have something to prove in 2021

Quick, remind me. Did you say "He's never recovered a fumble and we're only counting regular season because the NFL DPOY is only based on regular season production"?

 

Or did you say, "He's never recovered a fumble"?

Yeah, that's what I thought. So, desperate sad justifications aside, the "fact" that I'm referring to is the one that you fumbled. The one you totally got wrong.

 

Edmunds is generally considered a top ten guy at the position. And for good reason. That's why he twice made the Pro Bowl and it's why they exercised his fifth year option, and why exercising his fifth year option was never considered to be much of a question, except by the same few usual suspects on here.

 

The DPOY prediction is meant to be a wildly unlikely one. I certainly don't consider it to be at all likely. Off-ball LBs win DPOY, but it does not happen often. Kuechly, Ray Lewis, Urlacher, Derrick Brooks, Singletary Randy Gradishar and Jack freaking Lambert. That's not a lot. I certainly wouldn't put any money on it no matter what odds I got.

 

But is he likely to be a top ten ILB again? Yeah.

 

Is he likely to improve a lot, especially with Star playing in front of him again? Yeah. He's young, smart and athletic and the team believes in him.

 

And yeah it's wildly unlikely Edmunds gets DPOY. Except for Aaron Donald and maybe a group of six to ten other guys, it's wildly unlikely anyone else gets DPOY. You may not have noticed but they only give it to one guy out of half the NFL who are eligible.

Where did this poor in pass coverage come from lol

Just guessing but it probably stems from the fact that he was not good in pass coverage. 

  115 passer rating when targeted.   4 tds surrendered on 60 targets 

12.5 yds per catch

7 yards after catch/rec

 He was literally one of the worst MLB in the league at pass coverage.

So that's probably where that came from.

The thread is literally,  and quite specifically, about Edmunds being the NFLDPOY in 2021..........an award for regular season achievement.

 

But as I said.....you can add his playoff stats and it still doesn't make him look like anymore of a playmaker at MLB.

 

Since the beginning of 2019....COUNTING THE PLAYOFFS(35 games)..... he has just 1 interception,  1 fumble recovery and 0 forced fumbles.    

 

COUNTING THE PLAYOFFS  it's been 46 games since the LB with perhaps the biggest reach in the league has forced a fumble.     

 

Last season.......COUNTING THE PLAYOFFS(18 games).........he had 89 blitz attempts with just 1 quarterback hurry!

 

He does not make plays.

 

All the rest of the noise you are making does not matter..........you aren't going to win NFL DPOY if you don't make big plays.

True and I'm hoping he can regain his 2019 pass defense which had a 76.3 passer rating.

 

It's a big year for him this season and everyone knows it.

Yes, the thread is about DPOY. The thread. Remind me, were you replying to the thread? Or were you replying to me? Now, if you were replying to the thread, how come you clicked on "QUOTE" to my post? And if you were replying to me, how come you were trying to convince me about DPOY when I had already said - in the same post you were replying to - that DPOY is wildly unlikely? Either way your reply was clueless and off-target. And factually incorrect, which is why I was laughing.

 

Facts: You were replying to me. And in the same post I'd said that DPOY was wildly unlikely. You didn't have to convince me of that. I was only laughing with BillsfaninSB about your amusing little mistake in facts. And yet, predictably, you felt the need to attempt to wiggle and squirm your way out.

 

So, let's go through it again ...

 

Quick, remind me. Did you say, "He's never recovered a fumble and we're only counting regular season because the NFL DPOY is only based on regular season production"?

 

Or did you say, "He's never recovered a fumble"?

The guy with the 7' wingspan hasn't forced a fumble in 42 games.    

 

He's never recovered a fumble.

 

 

Yup. You said he had never recovered a fumble. WRONG!! You said he "hasn't forced a fumble in 42 games." WRONG!! Two complete factual inaccuracies in one very short post.

 

You weren't interested in being careful about facts. You wanted to find absolutely anything bad to say about a player you clearly don't like.

 

 

 

And by the way, the way a mature, sensible person handles this by saying something along the lines of, "OK, fair enough, that was a mistake, I missed that, but ..." and continuing on. Well, two mistakes, in your case, but the idea is the same.

 

Instead you try to finagle and justify and squirm your way out of it. It's one way to operate, I guess, but it's a tactic that only makes the reader wince in sadness and understanding.

Reading half of the thread it's clear that Tre Edmunds is one of the most polarizing players on the team.

 

I am in the don't see it camp. Watch any film review of our MLB, it's generally not pretty. Poor angles, missed tackles (over 9% missed tackles on his career), gets lost in the wash, makes no impact plays. He is a guy who tallies a lot of assisted tackles, dances around in zone defense. I call him 'dancing bear' in pass defense.

 

Looking at his physical abilities, you would think he should be an impact player, but three seasons in he is not.

 

He allowed a 113 pass rating and over 500 yards against last season, his worst of his career. Maybe he was injured, maybe the changes to D-line affected him, but he looked completely lost in pass defense.

 

No impact plays to speak of. People like to point to the goal line tackle, and it was a good play, but the type of play a highly drafted MLB should make.

 

The bar for a guy picked 16th and the 'QB of the Defense' is set very low for this guy for some reason.

 

I hope he pans out to be a play maker, I just don't see it.

I think Edmunds will get better as a player but I don’t think he is a top LB yet. Saying that I don’t think the Bills should pay him as a top 5 LB. We already made that mini mistake with Tre White who I feel hovers around the top 10 CB’s. Tre White is very good but he is not a shut down CB, he does his job well within the scheme of the defense as Edmunds does.

3 years.  57 missed tackles and 9 TDs given up in pass coverage.  57.......

 

Get better Tremaine.  You have been blessed physically.  Don’t waste gods gift to you

The amount of negativity toward Tremaine is baffling. The coaches are high on him. He has been to two probowls. He's still very young and still improving his craft. Yes, he took a step back, coming back from a significant injury, but the negative Nancy's are getting kind of annoying. This young man is just getting warmed up in this league and like the coach has said, his best play is ahead of him. I have absolutely no reason to doubt that. None.

Watch him play.  He’s ok.  Just ok.  Is often lost in coverage.  Often hits the wrong hole.  Often misses tackles....57 in 3 years.  Yes, he makes some plays and accumulates some tackles.  Preston brown once led the NFL in tackles. He sucked.  Edmunds has been, at best, the 4th best lb from the 2018 draft imo.  


I really like the kid...... but let’s be real, his play at LB isn’t what we were hoping for.  He is completely underwhelming and devoid of big plays.  That’s what my eyes tell me.  If he was a 4th rd pick and was looking at a 5M contract I don’t think the talk would be the same. The “pro bowl” talk is nonsense.  He’s physical specimen that looks like Tarzan and plays like Jane more often than not.
