I knew when I typed it that the "all" was overstated. I was just too anxious to prove I can correct my boys when they are wrong.

yes sir, it takes more than one guy, but it also helps a lot that the guy at the POA wins big.

I still give myself ribbons on getting Revis right. Ha

I've never been one to complain about our draft picks during draft time. I actually liked the DB, Watt, Barwin, D-Ryans, etc picks. However, I liked the Travis Johnson, Harris and Slaton picks too....so what the heck do I know

Actually, I think Slatom was a good pick in the third; I was only begging the coaches not to run him inside as much. We were running too much inside zone and it was not Slaton's strongest suit. Always said he's a poor man Reggie Bush.
More stretch run like we've been doing the last few years would have saved some of the concussions he took.

We weren't very good at the stretch run then.

Default Re: Duane Brown: Best LT in the League

Travis was before my time of studying game tapes; I only asked people to forget about his draft status. I saw him as an effective guy in a rotation; never thought of him as a legit starter.

Brandon Harris, just like Caldwell, my take was that he won't replace Jackson just as Caldwell won't replace Myers; I even said that Caldwell had a long way to go to replace Brisiel (in his second year). During that PS, some posters asked for my take and that was what I said (quite a few people still had high hope for him at the time.)

Caldwell is a pretty good player; I never sold him short. I just thought that both Myers and Brisiel were quite better at the time.

A healthy Caldwell is quite better than the rookie Ben Jones.
Problem is Caldwell has seen a lot of down time.
As an O-lineman, you can't afford much down time.
The chemistry, especially in the ZBS, doesn't tolerate that.

Jackson doesn't need to replace Jackson... just Ball. Or maybe Bryce (sp?)

But we were. We just didn't run much of it as We were wanting to get the line to function well in the ZBS. We were very adamant about the back taking the first cut upfield so we simply employed a whole lot more inside zone.

Next thing your gonna tell me is that Kareem Jackson isn't bust either. Bradie James, Alan Ball?

No, no. I think I will just continue to judge these things quickly. After all, no one gets better with practice, effort, and coaching.
Yep. Reminds me of the times when I said Vince Young was our future, Schaub wasn't worth one 2nd round pick let alone two, and that Kubiak would never get the Texans past a 500 season.

I'm pretty damn good at player/coach evaluations myself.

I'm not at a place where I can put up links, but if you go to Football Outsiders and check on Offensive line in those years; we ran a ton more inside.

Check out how we gained more in 08 and 09 on the edges than we did in 2010 and 2011. Crazy right?

I remember the reaction on draft day for us taking him and my thread in which I went off on a tirade towards the folks bad mouthing the pick.

It's not Casey's fault Brown is like an angry grizzly and has slaughtered the Lions already. Man's doing his job.
