  1. Outside zone is essentially pressing the outside rather than the hole. Not that we should expect Shanahan out of Lafleur, but Shanahan used one cut runners that would set up to the outside and cut upfield. That would be great for Henry as he can find a crease and hit it with power. He has more trouble when he has to slow and adjust his footwork to the blocking at the hole.
  2. Trump is and always has been a fool deriving power from wealth. His business history is littered with questionable happenings and links to various mafias. People with power and money use fools as pawns. Trump, being a fool with a penchant for making unscrupulous deals, is an ideal target to subvert. A criminal mastermind wouldn't be in the midst of a failing presidency - I'm sure this will be challenged by shills but just keep in mind the bottom of the barrel approval ratings and repeated instances of failed policy (where is our wall? How about that Muslim ban? No one knew healthcare could be so complicated....) - flailing wildly at each and every questioning of his capability. Trump and Russia is the tip of the iceberg as far as collusion goes. The DNC and RNC are both little more than means for the wealthy to subvert the political process by skipping to the levels where decisions are made. Both of these entities are selling the American political system and maintaining a system which keeps them in power. These are entities engaged in managing the masses towards their goals. This is not about Trump, Russia, the democrats or republicans. This is about corruption overtaking the US government. This is about money further infiltrating the decision making of the US to further tilt the landscape and keep all the pennies rolling in the right direction. This is class warfare. Trump himself is an usurpation of the American government propped up by a variety of political players with things to gain. Trump isn't necessarily in Russia's pocket - he's just too busy puffing up his own to care how it's filled. Powerful people see that and see a man they can use. They see the perfect fall guy to change the world towards their desires and then toss aside. That is what is so concerning about this. We all know there are self-righteous stubborn morons like yourself that can be tricked towards drinking whatever flavor kool-aid is needed - at least until they see the people around them dropping like flies - but there used to be a greater barrier to changing the world by fudging truths and numbers. Trump is a CEO, a face... It's concerning that the forces behind him have this much power.

    Flynn

    So how long has Flynn been an untrustworthy serial liar whose every breath is to be ignored as vile untruths? Just since he left Trump's team right? Before then he was a "fine man" and "great advisor" right? I wonder what changed....
  5. Looked like he didnt know what he was doing at times blocking in that. Id like to see some recent games...
  6. If all three play it more speaks towards OLB depth as they are scheming to get all three pass rushing.
  7. Id only seen him mocked in the 2nd or 3rd round but I like him a lot.
  8. Haven't watched him at all. I'll try to at some point.
  9. He is the single most overrated player in the draft. He is nothing special athletically. He played behind an elite line and has trouble shedding blocks as he doesn't have the length to get hands on them first or the size/power to toss them aside. He leverages into them and holds his ground but this roots him and makes him slow to shed and pursue. He can be beaten to the corner by speed. He has a decent feel for zone coverage but doesn't have the athleticism or coverage ability to man up on quality TEs. People like that he hits hard with his whole body but are ignoring that he is undersized for that play style and doesn't move through traffic well. I could see him busting hard. I could also see him becoming a solid player on a good D. I absolutely don't see an all-pro MLB as many seem to have him pegged.
  10. 1. He improves your run D by starting at corner. Sweeps and tosses to his side are out of the question. WR screens towards him are also a bad idea. This is the most physical corner Ive ever seen in the draft. 2. His issue with the deep ball is that he presses his man so agressively on the stem. This isnt a flaw as much as it is a style. It is a weakness that comes with playing WRs as aggressively as he does. When turning and running he matches any WR stride for stride. He doesn't have top end ball skills but can make plays on it. If a coach wants he can have him re-route stems less and play off more, where his speed will be more apparent, but I think thats wrong. Let him re-route guys, because most of the go routes that got behind him had their timing thrown off to end up incomplete.
  11. If the Browns truly believe in a QB, they have their pick of the litter at pick 1. They are not going to trade multiple picks for a player that they already passed on 4 picks prior. If they are sold on a QB they can take one at 1 and then draft talent at 12 and the other pick(s).
  12. They are building and scheming with specific match ups in mind. I think they want versatile groups at each position to cover for different opponents. While safety isn't un-upgradeable, you have the head coach here saying that it is a deep position for us. I don't think they view the position as one to target like I assume they do with CB and WR.
  13. https://paleodrama.tumblr.com/post/30293090472/jack-kruse-is-bongo59-as-if-we-didnt-already I'd be less inclined to dredge this up if Bongo weren't up to his old act. Bongo said: The fourth google result if you google "flicker effect nfl" is this: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/flicker-effect-light-jack-kruse Wouldn't you know, a Dr. Jack Kruse blog talking about that very subject. Mythos responded shortly after: And mythos is correct. Further research reveals no studies identifying a correlation between the flicker effect and muscles. Bongo goes on to talk about how NFL docs are flagging guys for this...... His MO is to establish himself as an authority on something, then make outrageous claims supported with cryptic leaps of logic, which he backs up by blatantly lying, plagiarizing other people's hard work, or appealing to his own self-created status as an authority. I don't particularly approve of megalomaniacs spreading misinformation to feel important so I think everyone should be aware of the history of who we are dealing with here.
  14. Amara Darboh is another guy that gets no talk but just performs and he ran faster than expected too. I think he has #1 potential on the outside (Reggie Wayne kind of #1) and a pretty high floor. There is WR talent in the draft, just very few guys you can point to and say they will change the way your offense works, and that is why Zay Jones or Darboh or Godwin aren't in the same group. They don't provide you the chance to change your offense at the physical match-up level.
  15. Humphrey is the #2 CB in the draft. I think the combine established that. He showed recovery speed to go with his play-style. His biggest issue is losing his technique to his aggressiveness. When he gets beat it is usually a pick play he and his inside CB didn't see soon enough, or it is PA and he drifted from his zone. When he is playing plain man coverage he's pretty close to lock down. He can be beat down the sideline out of the press but he typically ruins the timing of the route, forcing the WR to go wide around him, causing an inaccurate throw. When he lines up off the line 5-10 yards and he doesn't get beat deep. His biggest weakness going into the NFL will be that aggressiveness affecting his pattern recognition. You can easily work with that. The biggest thing that stands out when comparing him to other corners is that he beats the crap out of plays at the LOS. You aren't succeeding with a screen towards Humphrey. Running stretch plays or tosses to his side likely results in him meeting the RB after a couple yards. Run a TE into his zone and that TE is going to get hit. If your WR looks away from him, that WR is getting clocked. He improves the quality of defense in the flats to his side, simply by being on the field. His style of play fits the man/cover-3 defense we're likely to use this season and would fit in with the signings of Cyprien and Ryan - both quality tacklers.
