Re: The Sam Howell Thread

We are most likely not finding any real upgrades at OL or LB until next offseason. But it’s ok. This thing is just getting started. The first and most important, and at one point in time seemingly impossible thing, is done. We got rid of the stink that was Snyder. Great things are coming. Namely a football team that doesn’t fill its seats with opposing fans and make headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Hopefully now we can concentrate on the team only and we address the oline and lb corp. We have a great core of guys here. Including a quarterback!

Re: The Sam Howell Thread

Honestly cannot see them changing the OL at all, one of Ron's failings is being overly loyal, great in life bad in competitive sports. Only guy who could get jettisoned is Trenton Scott, and we have a 4th round project OT who might not even make the team

Re: The Sam Howell Thread

For the last 4 years they have had so many opportunities to improve the LB group, but they keep ignoring it. Not going to happen. I cannot even see J.Davis getting a second contract.

I love that Howell steps up and takes total responsibility for the sacks. If he keeps that up, his Oline will only fight harder to protect him.

Yeah, he seems like a good leader.

Yet he beat the Cowboys in a meaningful playoff game for them. Howell has improved a lot since and keeps improving every game, he has learned a new offense over night. He’s the real deal, better than Cousins and
We’ll be like Joey T or even better.

This regime has made it clear that the resources on defense are going to the guys upfront.

I noticed that. They were constantly sending pressure and their db's were playing tight man to man. They were playing to win that game no doubt.

Risner would be an upgrade. I'm not sure exactly what he's waiting for, to be honest. I feel like he's betting that some team will be desperate enough to overpay him, because a key O-lineman goes down with an injury. He'll probably have a job soon, but I doubt it's here. I haven't heard anywhere that we are interested.

LB - yeah no one out there currently is better than what we have probably. Would have to see who gets cut over the next couple weeks to see if anyone makes sense.

Yes they do that every year, despite their protests to the contrary.

Exactly lol, they act like they didn't try and win those 24 in a row.. It's fine but just be real and admit it

So strange when the HC and DC were … linebackers.

And let's go EB! At this point, yours is the right mindset. What we won't see this season is Turner's inane use of Samuel and Heinicke's flaccid arm. If the OL doesn't completely fail, I suspect that we will score a few points.
