Re: Early Cut list, or Please Get Off My Team

I love Marcus Mason but I dont ever want to see him returning a kick again. He holds the ball in such a way that its going to get popped out too frequently.

Tryon and Westbrook continue to do NOTHING to endear me to them. Torrence getting beat on that play was pretty bad but, its James friggin Hardy and it was a pretty good throw too imo.

Step it up out GTFO.

This may just make the cut easier

Just one cautionary note about McMullin:

He has a ton of experience in the West Coast Offense - - in practice. His game performances over his entire career have yet to rise to the level of "mediocre".

Is he better than Mix? Maybe. But don't get lathered up about the "treatness that is Mr. McMullin" just yet. He's been a major disappointment wherever he's been so far...

Re: Early Cut list, or Please Get Off My Team

I think Torrence has been playing well. He led the charge on that Marshawn Lynch stuff after London Fletcher lost the tackle. And I remember him coming up quick in run support last week as well. His coverage has been pretty good. There wasn't any separation between him and James Hardy, just height advantage. I think he's been holding his own.

Tryon, on the other hand. It seems like every time there's a big passing play, he comes trotting in behind the receiver a few steps late. I haven't honestly seen one play that makes me think the guy has potential. He's getting a lot of PT too. You'd think he'd do something when the scrubs come in. I'm thinking he might need to be sent to the practice squad to work on his coverage skills. He's of no use to the Skins in dime or nickel packages or even special teams. The analysts were saying he was a reach in the 4th round, and that's looking like the case. Justin Tryon, please, get better or get off my team.

-Derek Devine
-Anthony Mix
-Justin Tryon
-Horace Gant

I like McMullen so far. But I wouldn't count Byron Westbrook out quite yet.

Yeah, I was frustrated by that pick. There was still a lot of CB talent on the board. USF's Trae Williams, Wisconsinn's Jack Ikegwuono, Boise State's Orlando Scandrick, Nebraska's Zack Bowman and if you were gonna reach, reach for a guy like Grand Valley State's Brandon Carr, who the Chiefs got in the 5th. Time will tell, and it's only been two games, but I haven't seen much, if anything, to say this guy's gonna be OK.

Re: Early Cut list, or Please Get Off My Team

McMullen didn't do that great during the first game, I remember him having a dropped passed and a false start. I'd like to see him play another solid game before I rave about him.

I do remember hearing people's praises of Torrence, so I'm curious to know what he did during the last game (didn't watch the whole game). I think Tryon is having a whole bunch of rookie mistakes, I think he needs to keep the talk down and perform better.

I think Devine is gone, unless they keep him in the practice squad...which it may happen under Zorn.

Re: Early Cut list, or Please Get Off My Team

Well, Blache said prior to the first preseason game, that Tryon was a steal and he is the real deal. I am not sure how he feels now, but I see him in position to make the play most of the time. He simply fails to make the play. I am confident that he will do better, and I am also 100% sure he makes the 53 man roster. Rookies are rookies and they take time to develop. Even Chris Long looked like a fool on a running play, and he is making a zillion dollars.

I think it is safe to say that Blache won't fall in love with Tryon...now a stripper that's another thing. LOL.

I hate to say this, but when he made the comment that a rookie will brake your heart after the Buffalo game, I wondered if he was talking about Tryon.

I would agree. I'm a huge Bowman fan. I was hoping we would get him, albeit in the 5th round or later.

Probably, since someone on this board (I believe) said that Blache had good things to say about drafting Tryon.

Re: Early Cut list, or Please Get Off My Team

Well, looks like I'm in the minority on Leigh Torrence. I don't see why everybody is so anxious to give him a pass. I saw him get toasted in the Chicago game last year, and now he's getting toasted by second round rookies.

Like I said, none of the nickel/dime corners are stepping up. I only favor Tryon at this point because we spent a 4th round draft choice on him. If he continues his ho-hum performance, oh well ... see ya.
