    Thoughts on offense

    This is more about the original thinking. People tried to paint Mularkey's original idea for the offense as a disaster waiting to happen. When they were really just coming from a place of being angry and biased regarding a mediocre hire. Which it 100% was. Without bias, the original plan and foundation was a good one, deserved some optimism, and equaled success: It opened HUGE running lanes as well. The problem was the transition to year two and if we could expand past our foundation. Now that our hire is a bit more interesting and "young" suddenly this foundation seems to make sense. Suddenly bunch formations aren't so bad. Suddenly splitting Fluellen out wide is inspired. Suddenly Mariota predominantly under center makes sense. Anyway ... I definitely like LaFluer's thinking and believe they'll bring a lot more nuance to the run-first foundation as time goes by.

    Well those are few and far between, they look great though.

    Around the NFL: preseason

    with the Cowboys having injury issues at safety, wonder if they will make another attempt to trade for Earl Thomas.
  5. I don’t think there’s much wrong with Henry but I think if Henry has an easy fix to get better ( other than pad level) it would be to keep his feet moving. High knees sometimes but really it’s about keeping his feet moving through tackles. Watch some more early Eddie George tape or something. His is balance isn’t great and he’s got tiny legs for his size. Those are the weaknesses he will always have to work on.
  6. They still need Mathews, Davis is more likely to miss games at this point then Marcus even.

    So, it sounds like you're agreeing that his size could potentially work against him unless he decides to run more like a punisher? I'msaying if his game is predicated on being more of a speed back and less on bowling people over, it seems like he might be more effective running at 225-230 instead of 250..

    I laughed way too hard at that.

    I would tell you to stop spreading fake news, unplug your computer and stay off the internet.
  10. Right. Center is way more than your ability to block. Center has to make calls at the line. Jones was a monster weak link in blocking last year but reports are that he is much better in this new offense.

    Good points but who’s been maintaining that this LaFleur offense was going to be throwing the ball all over the place? Strawman? We all discussed that the Shanny system produces huge running games. Old man Shanny used to pull guys off the street and they would be having monster games running the ball.

    No doubt Taylor didn’t know what he was doing last year on the field. I still wonder how much he knows of this new offense. But I think Superhorns point is that with the lack of speed on offense last year, you insert Taylor for simple no brainer plays. Get him the ball in space on a handful of plays during a game. Maybe he pops one or two then you can use him as a decoy or something. Mularkey just had the guy running intermediate option routes where several times he wasn’t even looking for the ball.

    Best thing about that is the music in the background.
  15. Many are excited about Davis and Taylor as am I, but they're unproven right now. We need to see it in the regular season. Matthews is a proven vet.

    Brown looks like a great pick

    Taywan Taylor receives praise from King James

    At this stage, I like what Taywan brings to the table more than I do Matthews. He has the speed, agility, and burst to compliment CD.
  18. What would you get for him? He only has 1 year left on his deal. This is a critical year for Mariota, LaFleur, Vrabel, etc. We need all our horses out there and we're not real deep at the position.

    These excuses are great.

    also they would get virtually nothing for him as he is in the last year of his deal.
  21. Brown has had two great preseason games. It’s just that people remember the bad angle he took on Adams for the GB touchdown. I can’t see how he’s not a starter or getting significant snaps.
  22. Something like that has crossed my mind but they are so thin at WR

    Thoughts on offense

    I don't know why people would think we're not going to emphasize running the ball. LaFleur learned under Kubiak, Shanahan, and McVay. Arian Foster, Todd Gurley, Devonta Freeman, etc didn't get all those rushing yards out of nowhere.

    The team having a non white helmet kinda messes with me as I have known no different since the 80's. Cool with them as they are, look much better as a complete uniform vs the just the original pics of the jerseys by themselves.
