You're not very good at this football stuff IMO.
One on ones tilt in favor towards the defense as far as pass pro goes. Willie Jefferson had no problem beating brown on a play. Did people freak out about that? No. Also, merciless Went against quessenberry and lost. Then the coach pulled him. Is quess an all pro? Maybe kollar needs to get real for pulling him.
As a pass rusher you should at least be flashing sometimes. You act like the damn team mom sometimes.
There's a ton of reps that happen at practice over multiple days. I would not over emphasize any one report. Nobody covering practice is everywhere all at once. That is why they have video cameras everywhere for the staff.
It is also difficult to guard against group think among media members at camp because everybody talks together. I must confess a lot of times when I read that X media member is high or low on a particular player, I look to see what they are seeing and am not seeing it.
So, yeah, I could likely point out good and bad plays of just about every player of the team at each individual practice because no one, even J.J. Watt consistently wins every play.
For much of the pass rush stuff, I strongly believe that we won't get a better sense of things until real games with real lineups.
