Re: Fustrated with lack of changes on Oline

Also the Cowboys analogy is unfounded, we've invested nowhere near the amount of draft capital in our line as I've clearly shown. I'm not talking about filling our line with 1st and 2nd round picks, but one here or there would make a big difference. Versus the revolving door of 4th, 5th, 6th rounder...

Re: Fustrated with lack of changes on Oline

A few thoughts on this to stir the pot: 1.) How does this compare with other GMs around the league. Can't really say Rick sucks if you do not have a point of comparison? This applies both to OL Drafting and Drafting in general. That's more work than I care to do but I'm going to venture missing on ...

Linval didn't practice today (same with Reiff and Sendejo). Cook and Bower were full participants.

Re: Fustrated with lack of changes on Oline

At this point you have to ask the question, is Rick capable for building a good Oline? Lets take a look: 2008: John Sullivan, 6th (hit) 2009: Phil Loadholt, 2nd (hit) 2010: Chris DeGeare, 5th (miss) 2011: Demarcus Love, 6th (miss) 2011: Brandon Fusco, 6th (hit?) 2012: Matt Kalil, 1st (miss) 2013: J...

Re: 2018 Season General Thread (News, Notes, Interviews, etc)

David Parry was signed with Hughes moved to IR. I was a bit surprised Parry was cut because we didn't really have a true backup NT. But now DT is very crowded (esp after signing Tom Johnson). Hopefully this means Bower comes back this week and they think Everson comes back soon. And not that they're...

Re: Cardinals Postgame Thread

I think part of Reiff's setback is he is playing hurt. We know he was playing hurt against the Rams and he couldn't make it through the Eagles game. When healthy, he's pretty good, or if that's too much to swallow, decent. Injuries are purely hindsight driven and not a very fair way to judge composi...

Re: Cardinals Postgame Thread

I guess I don't understand the "botched draft" comment. If we take Hernandez and then a CB in the 2nd, what is the difference? Hernandez is playing well right now but so is O'Neill. And I'm much more worried about the tackle position than I am the interior right now. If we took Hernandez, and Reiff...

Re: Cardinals Postgame Thread

Barr did have a very good game, forgot to mention him. Other than the OL where there are no easy solutions due to a botched draft, the other question is what do we do at DE. We only kept 4 and only 2 are healthy. As good as Hunter is, we need a rotation. We could pickup someone if Hughes is indeed d...

Re: Cardinals Postgame Thread

Also props to Wayne's who had a solid game. Very good in run support as well. Definitely missed him last week.

ETA: If Hughes is done, will be interesting to see who gets activated. Could be Wynn esp if Bower is out another game. Weatherly isn't a guy who can play that many snaps.

Re: Cardinals Postgame Thread

Nice win today. Defense played great today. Basically only gave up 3 points until garbage time. Offense? Thielen, Murray had monster games. Cousins? I wish he had better pocket presence and was able to extend plays and scramble. Agree they should play boone more. ST was solid today. good coverage, ...

We're looking much better and I think this team is finally coming into form, but Good God I'm worrying about Hughes because he has played alright when he was in and it's only his first year.
Pelissero saying ACL. He'll have an MRI tomorrow to confirm.

Cardinals Postgame Thread

Good game overall! Murray with 100+ yards plus Boone with a big run. Defense played well except for a couple of plays. Nice goalline stand and a couple of turnovers. ST (by Vikings standards) was better. Wile had some nice kicks. The number of deflected balls and overall OL play still remains a conc...

Re: Eagles Postgame Thread

Found this gif on reddit. Diggs. Thielen. Ankles. https://gfycat.com/HarshFlimsyHalcyon There was an eagles fan on reddit that said the crowd reaction on the Diggs challenge wasn't because they thought it wasn't a catch but because of how badly he broke the DB's ankles. Who knows for sure but helpe...

Do you think we should give Ereck Flowers a call? Could he help this team?
No thanks, he's a human turnstile.
