Re: Week 1 - Post-game Thread

I would love to know what Bostic was thinking (actually I probably wouldn't)

And why McCain backed up so much.

Bostic just has awful vision, awareness, and feel from where he is on the field.
Sometimes he just stares at QB eyes and ends up being dragged way out of his zone without looking at the wide open guys in his zone... and sometimes he just stares at one guy and follows him with no awareness of where other guys could be...

#55 isn't much better. CH may be fast but he can not cover at all. I can't imagine what Brady, Mahomes Dak and so on are going to do to this defense.

Holcomb is not a great covering LB, but Bostic just has zero clue what the F he's doing out there. Holcomb is good against the run and average in coverage, Bostic is average against the run and embarrassing in coverage.

Looked like he found a nice piece of open grass to go have a picnic.

I thought notevenclosekins had a nice ring to it?

If you have to try too hard to come up with an insult, you've already lost.

Re: Week 1 - Post-game Thread

Omagad. I'm watching the All 22 of the chargers game. I'm still in the 1st quarter. That's now 2 punt returns in a row where Apke whiffs on blocks twice in the same play. I'll do a gif later (cuz maybe there's more to come), but I'm fuming. I don't want to hear one more word about him being this elite special teamer. f him. And f Rivera too on this one, cutting Moreland was a stupid mistake. Keeping Apke is a Jay Gruden like continuous mistake. And f those fake ass smart armchairs gm saying we don't understand how important special teams are and how good Apke is at it, I've had enough of those... HE SUCKS. PERIOD.

Re: Week 1 - Post-game Thread

While I enjoy your analysis French, you are missing the point a little bit wrt Apke and Moreland. Moreland was cut because he was beaten out by StJuste, McTyer and Roberts. The sixth CB, like the 7th LB and the 5th Safety is primarily a ST player. Jimmy wasn't a ST guy. Now I don't disagree with your assessment that Apke is not a great ST player, saw him at least once take a bad angle on coverage and totally over pursue the returner, a key reason why he was/is such a bad DB. And you are right that sometimes coaches seem to latch onto certain players, maybe it is the ST coach and Ron is just having his back, and that always looks odd to those outside the team. What is strange to me is that, Ron is, seemingly, using any excuse to get rid of guys bought into the the team by the previous regime unless they are real talents and/or team players, yet he is keeping Apke who has obvious flaws when on the field even to the most casual observer

You are right about Moreland, him being cut doesn't have much to do with Apke. I'm just ranting.
My main point is Apke is not worth a roster spot, period. We could've used his spot many other ways (including keeping Moreland, signing KJ Wright etc... Etc...).
This narrative that he would be one of the best special teamers in the league just needs to stop. He is not. Maybe he is excellent in practice because of his speed, but good coaches see players who underperform in actual games...

Re: Week 1 - Post-game Thread

Whiffs twice on the same play


Whiffs twice on the same guy


Holds and still gets beat


Whiffs (and Bates doesn't react) and his guy makes the tackle... and he gets beaten a second time !


False start
