    Since the shotgun draw has become the bane of everyone's existence, I wonder if anyone who's unhappy can tell me how many times it's called on the sidelines vs the amount of times it was called as an...

    I expect to see what I've been seeing since he's been the DC. He's going to live and die with his front four and make very few in game adjustments.

    To answer your question, there's that whole tackling thing that goes on in football that doesn't exist in the other sports.

    We put it on a hero sandwich. We cannot get our QB killed. If Beatty can't do the job, cut him. At the very least sit him.

    If Reese wants to fix what's broken on the Oline, he will take one of the three OTs in round one (provided that one is still left), the best center in round two and the best remaining pass blocking/...

    To stay on point, in another thread we came to the conclusion that Reese has had more success with UDFAs than most. I'm not satisfied with his drafts of 08-11 (jury's still out on the recent ones),...

    This is a great video for all those guys that think LT was just a great blitzing LB. Sure, he had a lot to do with how OTs changed their stance in passing sets, but he was also great against the...

    I remember LT doing a number on Jacoby. To the point where they had to slide Bostic out to handle him. In '86 LT owned the Redskins. It was Lachey that gave LT problems and that was after Jacoby...

    Back in the 70s there was a pitcher named Steve Blass. He pitched for the Pirates and was a huge reason why the Pirates won the World Series in '71. I bring his name up because in '72 Blass was...

    You're right YA. All of those guys needed to be game planned for. I'm sure Deacon Jones kept coaches up at night also. I think Deacon jones changed the game a bit. But I don't think Thomas,...

    Clowney has twenty pounds on Taylor and that's where the comparisons should end with LT. Outside of that he's a question mark until he shows he can play great in the NFL.

    I would make that trade in a heartbeat. But I think you are right, it would take more than that. Besides, if anybody is going to move up to get him, it will probably be Atlanta.

    That is not true. And it illustrates another way LT changed the game. Plenty of LBs in a 3-4 did rush the QB. But LT was incredibly successful when he would freelance.

    I was surprised by Mara also, but I'm still not sold on Jernigan. I think Mara was just planting the seeds of Gilbride's departure.
