More on drafting for perceived value over dire need later today here.
TC becomes the 4th and final NFC East coach to disassociate himself from this.
Oh, yeah, well I played shuffleboard for hearing aids. OK, that’s a dumb joke. Sorry. (In Mad Dog voice) “That’s a good job by Eli.”
I get a little crazy with the hyphenated words sometimes too, Eric.
(Cowboys, Redskins, and Eagles news after the jump)…
I don’t think the Mavs winning it all changes anything for Romo. He was going to be judged on post-season success whether the local basketball team won a Championship or not.
Both Free and Jason Peters are too low on that list.
They predict the Cowboys to finish 3rd in the NFC East.
Left tackle Trent Williams has yet to show up to any offseason workouts. Attending these sessions does not mean a player has been working hard. Rookie Maurice Hurt doesn’t appear to have spent a ton of time working out yet he’s been to four of these sessions. However, the knock on Williams in college was that he didn’t work, or study, hard enough. It would be smart to make an appearance here just to stay sharp with his playbook if nothing else.
So it’s simply an average of how many pressures a lineman gives up per pass-protection snap. The key here, and the most subjective part of the statistic, is that it relies upon PFF’s film analysis, which we can’t see or judge for ourselves. So basically, we just have to take their word for it. But it is what it is.
A slice over 200 pounds, the newest Eagles safety can bench 365 pounds. Squat 505. Power clean 325. And yeah, opponents feel every bit of that.
Asante Samuel will start at left cornerback. Beyond that, there is uncertainty.
Peters came in 7th. Also of note – Doug Free came in 5th.
Not to get into semantics here, but “very good” is probably being a little too kind.
