Sal Capaccio tweets starters... Spencer Brown and more...


Recommended Posts

Bernard. Very interesting.  There has been an assumption all along that we are going to roll out the same exact defense, and therefore nobody can find a role or need for Terrel.  Seeing as how we have listed 12 starters, it is clear that there are going to be some scheme changes this year.  Lots of 4-3, less of Taron.  Maybe a 50-50 split?  

I expect Bernard to be set loose as a blitzer, and I predict him as no lower than 3rd on the team in sacks.

I understand people's reservations about McKenzie's ball security issues and the importance of ball security in general but when a guy can perform feats like this, I think you have to say "He's a wide receiver so catching shouldn't continue to be a problem and besides, he's a threat to break one every time he touches it."

 

 

 

 

He's really not though.

 

Last year he had one long one of 75 and that was it.  In 2020 it was 27 with a really bad average of 16 per.  In 2019 his long was only 24 on an average of 21. 

 

He's not much of a threat back there.

I'm concerned about our CB situation.  The WRs on the Rams, Packers, Dolphins and Chiefs are formidable. Fins a little less because of Tua but nonetheless very good. Not as worried about Tenn, Pitt or Balt. Hopefully our new D- front can get to opposing QBs before their WRs break free.

Hopefully Browns pass blocking is a lot better this season. 

Yup, he did need to clean up that aspect of his play, but being a rookie that sort of thing was to be expected.  I hope we see an o-line that has improved across the board, and is consistent in its play, if so it will greatly increase our odds for a successful season,

I dont see how Cook can be active, 4 RBs on game day?


I don’t even look at Taiwan as a RB.  He’s a gunner, that’s it.  I’m sure they are activating Moss as insurance of Motor gets hurt.  We’ll see Cook soon enough.  I can see against the Chiefs.

His NFL career averages are 8.9 yards on 58 punt returns with 1 TD and 22.0 yards on 44 kick returns.

 

In college his averages were 11.7 on 59 punt returns with 5 TDs and 23.3 on 16 kick returns with 1 TD.

 

But it's more the idea that if they block well up front that McKenzie has the speed and vision to take it the distance.

3 rbs. Jones isn't a rb even though he's listed as one. 

 

New OC though... what Daboll did might be different than what Dorsey does.

I hear ya… I don’t follow other teams closely enough… what does their O-Line depth look like compared to ours? 

Probably about the same as ours because according to this board every team in the league’s offensive line depth sucks so we shouldn’t worry.😅

People here forget what a great kick returner looks like...
