Re: Around the NFL...Training Camp Style

lol... With the current state of the Jets WR core you would think they would have brought him back.

Just speculating, but i think it could be argued that Vick's left tackle is more important(despite Vick's throwing arm) than his right. I argue that because i think he probably scrambles to the left more and is more comfortable rolling that way.

Normally you would say his blind side is more important, but i think it's his left due to his mobility.

Yup that makes sense and that's who they lost (Peters).
We could have really hurt their OL if we had enough cash to outbid them for D.Bell.

Although I have a lot of respect for Vick, i think their receiving corp is limited.
Here's how I see them:
With Riley Cooper breaking his leg they don't (at present) show enough depth to 4-5 wide.
If they're in base or 3 WR personnel:
DeSean only runs routes outside the numbers and you can always double him.
If you need to you can double Maclin but imo he's not a dyanmic WR and I think Wilson or D.Hall (if he's in the mood to play honest press man) can shut him down.
Avant you can play man-to-man.
Celek you can play man to man.

The X-factors are Shady McCoy and whether or not Andy Reid feels like running the ball.

IMHO - Couldn't agree more. In fact, I think McCoy, more so than Vick, is the key to their offense. Due to his versatility, he really presents problems for the defense which, in turn, creates openings for Maclin and Jackson. Both are good WR's who can make great plays (as opposed to say a C. Johnson who is a great WR who can make phenomenal plays). I think this is true even if Reid stays with his pass heavy offense.

As you say, both Maclin and Johnson can be taken away - most of the time - in the passing game by doubling and pressing and the rest of the WR are nothing special. McCoy, however, creates all sorts of match-up up problems in the passing game and frees Maclin and Johnson on the play action. Even if Reid doesn't run much, McCoy is the type of runner for whom you have to respect the run any time he is in because he can break for big gains anytime he touches the ball.

Vick, well, he's Vick. He extends plays and makes some on his own. While he is individually dynamic, McCoy is both individually dynamic (to a lesser degree than Vick) and makes the team more dynamic schematically. By that I mean, defenses have to respect Vick b/c if they don't, Vick will make big plays that move the team and create scoring and, because you can't count on one guy to take Vick away either as a QB or runner, he creates opportunities for others.

On the other hand, and in addition to his talent as RB and receiver, McCoy creates a different kind of uncertainty for the defenses. Just like Vick you have to account for him as an individual and so he creates openings for others in style (but not the degree) that Vick does. Because of McCoy's versatility as a runner and receiver, defenses don't know exactly how he will be used on any particular play creating a schematic confusion (is he a runner or receiver - is it pass, play-action, draw, off-tackle, etc?).

McCoy & Vick together are extremely dangerous for the problems they present. IMHO, however, take away McCoyand their offense becomes much, much less dynamic

I expect their defense will be improved from last year - not really all that hard to do. They have a lot to prove and may be playing with a chip on their shoulder. The addition of Ryans and the subtraction of Samuel (again, IMHO) will provide giant step forward. Still not sold on the Wide 9 or Castillo, but I expect a much better performance from their D this year.

And, yes, I wish we had been able to grab Bell. I would much rather have had him than Morgan. Not sure if he was available when the call to go for Morgan was made, but, if so, I think Morgan over Bell was a mistake.

Re: Around the NFL...Training Camp Style

I agree with you guys about McCoy. The dropoff from him to Dion Lewis is very large. If I were a Philly fan I would feel worse about seeing McCoy hurt than I would about any other player on their team.

Uh, PHI wasn't that great of a team last year. But, yes they have some individual stars.

They ought to be much better this year. A year for their talent to mesh. Either way, our division will be better this year. 10 and 6 might not cut it.

Re: Around the NFL...Training Camp Style

Good read here from Travelle Gaines, who runs a program that over 32 NFL players use in the offseason to stay in shape, and it basically sums up why he thinks conditioning tests are overrated.

Performance Gaines: What do conditioning tests really tell you? | Shutdown Corner - Yahoo! Sports

I don't think it's as cut and dry as whether or not teams should run conditioning tests, as I think it depends on what kind of team you have, but for me the interesting parts of the article are where he describes the kind of tests they do.

A 9-7 record won the NFC East last year. That 9-7 team won the Super Bowl but lost twice last season to the team that finished at the bottom of the division. We never know how things will turn out year after year. With the NFC East playing the AFC North, the division winner in the NFC East could very well end up 10-6. But the last time the NFC East played the AFC North, the division winner did end up with a 12-4 record. I doubt if that happens by the end of the 2012 season.

Now that's a great perspective.

I just don't believe none of the four teams in the NFC East division are good enough to win that many games.
