Re: McCune's stats

Perhaps one advantage McCune -- a corporal -- has over other rookies is not being intimidated by Williams's military-style approach. "It's really kind of comical," Williams said, "[to think] that I can put more stress [on him] than he's been under."

I think that this aspect will also help him get a grip on the shcem of things, he wont be stressed out as much...

Re: McCune's stats

Just curious - how is Williams style military. He tells them coming in you're all the same. That's a far cry from the military where you're shit when you come in (unless of course you came from ROTC -> College route and come in as an officer).

Re: McCune's stats

Even if he doesn't start right away, he'll be a beast on wheels for the special teams. I look for that unit to be pretty damn tough this year.

I don't doubt he's mentally tough, what I meant was can he pick up the mental part of the game, the schemes, running the D from the MLB spot, etc.

Re: McCune's stats

Our special teams was spotty last year. Sometimes great, sometimes extremely poor. I don't know if that's either good coaching with bad players, or bad coaching with good players.

One person who played very well on special teams but didn't seem to get much recognition was Sean Taylor. I saw him throw his whole body into the wedge taking out three of their guys with one hit.

Re: McCune's stats

i expect this guy to give lemar marshall as much as he can handle for the starting job at middle linebacker. he is a physical freak. he will make a great special teams player also. when i read his downsides on that article above, i didn't see anything gregg williams can't fix.

I am not sure I never had the pleasure of playing for Williams, I just went by what was in the article, I guess maybe because Williams rarely starts rookies and how he coaches with "tough love" method.

Re: McCune's stats

Williams will find a way to get this guy in for a few reps to terrorize the offense. Williams is good at putting guys into positions that they can handle.

You're joking, right? I think McCune's going to be a great addition to the squad. Still, don't you think that it's going a bit far to say that a late-round draft pick who has yet to play one down in the NFL merely needs to be "fine tune[d]" to become a pro bowler?

Re: McCune's stats

I think that Marshall is a natural MLB who was basically asked to play outside last year due to injuries
