TE’s and FB – Current depth chart and needs

Mike Gesicki – 6’6 250

Durham Smythe – 6’6 260

Michael Roberts – 6’5 265

Chris Myarick – 6’5 255

Fullback – Chandler Cox – 6’1 240

This is a very young unit, but also a unit that might a little more talent depth wise. At the top, Mike Gesicki seems to be the type of TE we have longed for (at least I have) for quite some time. He’s the athletic, seam busting, pass receiving TE’s that defenses have a nightmare with. He didn’t have an All-Pro season by any means, but he’s just dipping his toe into the pool. Probably unfairly, I expected this kind of production his first NFL season, 51 receptions, 570 yards and 5 TD’s. The thing is, his confidence is there now and I expect him and the Dolphins to build on last year’s success. Gesicki, much like DeVante Parker came on strong in the 2nd half of the season. If you think back, our offense was putrid in the 1st half of the season so those numbers were largely based on a half of the season, thankfully, the last half. FB Chandler Cox wasn’t used as much as I would have liked but maybe he will see more of a workload in 2020. Cox was used in 8% of the offensive snaps.

As far as the depth, Durham Smythe is a decent blocker, he came here with the pedigree of a very good in-line blocking TE. He’s been adequate, not great, and he’s been just about non-existent in the pass catching department. Newcomers Michael Roberts and Chris Myarick fill out the depth. Roberts was acquired after missing the entire 2019 season with an injury. That very injury nixed the trade between the NE Patriots and the Detroit. Myarick was on our roster last September then cut and placed on the PS. He signed a reserve/futures 2YR contract with the Dolphins. So it’s obvious that once you get past Smythe, our depth is thin.

This is not a great draft for TE’s and it won’t be a surprise if no TE is selected in RD1 or RD2. As far as free agents are concerned, the best have already been snapped up leaving a pretty weak collection that remains. Delanie Walker is a very solid player but he’s 36, and Jordan Reed who has loads of talent just can’t stay healthy. The other thing to consider is this . . . Look at the size of the TE’s we do have, all 6’5 and all 250 lbs or more. Doesn’t seem like we want small TE’s or H-back types.I can’t imagine we will be looking for a TE early in this draft, meaning before the 4th RD. A guy I can see us drafting if we don’t pick up another FA would be Adam Trautman. He’s more of a receiving TE with good athletic ability, not quite Gesicki athletic, but a 34.5″ vertical and an extremely impressive 6.78 3 cone drill. That shows exemplary agility, there are only 2 players in the entire draft class that bettered that mark and one was a WR (Denzel Mims) and a S (K’Von Wallace). For a guy 6’5 255 to do that is an athletic feat.

So this concludes the Depth Chart/Needs series. Next up will probably be a collaborative effort on the draft. If anyone would like to contribute, please let me know.

We will be conducting a Finsmob Unleashed LIVE Mock Draft. The date and time have not been set, we will discuss this on the blog and try to find a date that suits the most people. This should be easier since we should all be home anyway, R-I-G-H-T ? ? ?

    I didn’t even know a virus had a genetic makeup. I guess its technically a living organism

    • D says:

      It also attaches and changes your DNA once you contract it. Its one of the ways they are looking to defeat cancer, but taking DNA sequences from people who have natural resistances to developing certain cancers and inserting that DNA sequence into a virus that then attaches itself into your DNA sequence, therefore passing the resistance to that cancer to you.

  3. D says:

    So lets say the Scenario is we dont have to trade up for our guy (not knowing who that might be) so we take a Qb at 5, and then use 18 and 26 to trade up to maybe 7th (because the pick values match up) and take OT (Thomas, Wills, Wirfs) DT (Brown, Kinlaw) or maybe a hybrid guy like Simmons. Panther isn this case get 18, where they can still get a top defender, probably the top pure LB to replace Keuchkley and they can grab another top D prospect or OL. Same could be said about a trade back up to 10 with the Browns which we could probably keep our 28 and trade them a 2nd rounder to go with 18.

    “Treatments” not “Cures” Just like there is no cure to the flu or the common cold there will not be a “cure” for Covid-19. There will be treatments for the symptoms and to reduce the replication of the virus but even vaccines are not cures. When there is finally a vaccine it will most likely come from a neutralized version of the virus. I.e. manipulating the proteins in the virus so that the body recognizes the virus and creates it’s own antibodies while the virus in the vaccine is altered so that it does not replicate.
    They base it on that but they have to project the mutations, which is part of the problem they arent ahead of that yet to where they have develped so they can stop the spread. They can do a dead or neutralize version of the virus now, but the problem is if you vaccinate people with that, it only will help currently for the current manifestation. It is mutating and changing so even that vaccine wont prevent you from getting it when it jumps again. Im not sure how many times its already jumped, but they have to know what the next one will be or even maybe 2 or 3 ahead of that to get a vaccine that will eventually halt the spread. Vaccines are essentially cures since they stop new people from getting it, BUT it ddoes nothing for a person who already has it.

    They are treating patient that have it with the plasma of previously recovered patients. It apparently lessens the severity of the symptoms and helps aid in a fast recovery for other. Its something they just started doing a couple of weeks ago. Mayor of Miami was one of the first ones in Miami to donate his plasma after recovering, everyone he gets it snd recovers should do this to help others.

    • D says:

      Also Mikey, the reason they dont have a vaccine or “cure” is because they dont have the data to make the projections yet. Thats what they are working on now. It might not be available before this shit has run its course, but i guess could be. Still it would help us if we saw a mew outbreak of this in the future. Its what i was saying abotu the animal to animal animal to human, etc jumps before. With that being so fast, those stages, they were not prepared for this one. They were tracking it, and planning for it, but unlike H1N1 and Bird Flu and a few others, they didn’t have the mutation data before it made it to human to human stage.

  5. D says:

    I really do hope the world responds and make China change their food practices. This is the third pandemic (again probably more just only remember these three: Corona , H1N1 and Bird Flu) to come out of there because of their really disgusting open air markets. Lack of food regulations, etc is just begging for this kind of shit.

    • D says:

      Just because you think wild picg rectum is delicious, doesnt mean that it should be regulated to ensure it comes from a “clean” source, well as clean as a rectum could be.

    • stangerx says:

      D — we’ll see if they can change what China does. Maybe this one is big enough. Pretty much the whole world has been trying for decades to get them off their traditional medicine stuff. When we were in South Africa man did our park guides hate the Chinese. They weren’t there, but they paid the poachers these folks had to fight day-by-day. A lot of species of Rhino are close to extinction.

  6. herdfan says:

    I thought working from home would be fun. It SUCKS! Everything is harder to do. And we now have this IM app so we can communicate without calling or emailing—I’ve got a love/hate opinion of that. Can be really annoying.

    How is everyone? 😘

    Interest TryPod….. but I’m then left with why not put the office stuff in the stores. They might grumble but can guarantee people will grab it up.

    Based on my last two visits milk is OK now, but maybe cause you can’t horde something with an expiration date.

    What you talking about Willis? I won’t narc him out but someone on here has 40 gallons sitting in their garage. 😉 LOL

    • stangerx says:

      Whoever it is must really love milk. Not like you can freeze the stuff.

      • Rockphin says:

        I just learned that you CAN in fact freeze the stuff. I had to google it after my coworker told me you could.

        (It was a joke on here last week about hoarding milk refrigerated in the garage. I would out the person but I don’t remember who said it. Only that I laughed my ass off at the irony of hoarding a perishable)

  8. The Flying Pig says:

    Working from home this much sucks cow dung

    I wouldn’t my implementing it a few days a week though going forward

  9. Rockphin says:

    Herd you are 110% correct. This freaking dining room chair was not designed to sit in for 6-7 hours a day! The table isn’t the right height, the lighting is awful and that friggen cob web in the corner of the stairs (that has been there for weeks) is mind bendingly distracting!

    Boss called me today to tell me that they have processed the loan request which is the good news. The bad news is I have to take a pay cut and do more. (How am I not surprised) People around the country are going to get paid to stay at home, but ME who has never stopped working will be taking a pay cut of 20% “at least until June”

    Oh well. I still am over paid. 😉

  10. Mike E. says:

    Hey Herd – Good to see you! I’m temporarily out of work now and at first I felt useless and guilty but now I’m just like there’s nothing I can do about it, and I’m kind of enjoying having my whole family home and together. Gotta look at the positives, and that’s definitely one of them.

  11. TryPod says:

    I telework 2 days a week when there’s no pandemic in play, but I agree- this 5 days a week thing is not all it’s cracked up to be. I arrive at the office in what I slept in, my commute is much shorter, don’t have to pay for parking, lunch is easily taken care of, but I feel like work harder now than I do when I am at the office.

  12. CavalierKong says:

    I would highly recommend for anyone interested in getting accurate information that you read up for yourselves, and not just take what I or anyone else on here says as correct.

    There are white papers, research papers, and articles written more for the layman that accurately detail where we are, how the virus likely started, why it will take so long to get a vaccine out, etc. I’ve included some links for each of these that debunk continuing inaccuracies.

    As an example, the absolute number one thing keeping a vaccine from being put out right now, is that it just takes time to run clinical trails. Putting a vaccine out that we don’t know how it affects all genetic makeups, and all the possible side affects could potentially be far worse than a year without the vaccine. Imagine a vaccine that all but kills any individuals with a certain RNA strand, and 2% of the population have that genetic makeup.

    These kinds of vaccines often take a decade for full trials and testing. A lot of money and effort is going into accelerating that process, but it still takes time. They currently have some trials going with vaccines that may be effective, but you can’t just start giving that to hundreds of thousands of people. The 1st article I link shows a number of different vaccines and the stages of those trials (it’s a bit clinical). The 2nd article is more layman.


  13. D says:

    Milk has not been a problem for me for about 2 weeks now, Bread is making its comback, wasnt fully back a week or so ago, but its pretty much back now. TP still at a shortage lol, again, still not getting that, but hey whatevs.

    Yeah you are, i mean how much should someone get to sit on their computer all day ab blog about the dolphins……..oh wait a minute……

  15. D says:

    I like it, im more productive at home, im actually getting to a lot of stuff i otherwise wouldnt just because i dont have someone stop me ever 5 minutes to ask me some dumbass question that they then pretend like they knew the answer to already lol. We were already doin 2 days a week as well. I have a feeling though the uppers are going to open it to every day in the wake of having to do it and we aren’t overly affected by it. I haven’t seen the numbers but productivity probably is up, i know my numbers look better. If we stick with it, im good with that.

  16. son of a son of a shula says:

    Rock, They sell these things called office chairs and desks, check into it.

  17. CavalierKong says:

    We pretty much can find everything right now. Some of the notable exceptions are TP and flour. Also yeast. It’s kind of annoying to me, because I have a non-yeasted naan that I CAN make, but I much prefer my yeasted naan recipe.

    It’s the little things like that, that are starting to wear on me, but if this is the worst me and mine have to experience, we should be thankful, lol.

  18. son of a son of a shula says:

    Shouldn’t the schedule be coming out soon?
    It’s usually right before the draft.Maybe they’re holding off to see what happens.

  19. wyoming85 says:

    This is probably how we can get a QB and a OT!
    Traded up from 18 for OT.
    Traded back from 26 to get the 2nd round pick back!
    Your Picks:
    Round 1 Pick 5: Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama (A+)
    Round 1 Pick 14 (T.B.): Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia (A)
    Round 1 Pick 30 (G.B.): D’Andre Swift, RB, Georgia (B+)
    Round 2 Pick 7: Antoine Winfield Jr., FS/SS, Minnesota (B+)
    Round 2 Pick 30 (G.B.): Nick Harris, OG/C, Washington (A)
    Round 3 Pick 6: Bradlee Anae, DE, Utah (A)
    Round 4 Pick 35 (COMP): Charlie Heck, OT, North Carolina (A+)

  20. Rockphin says:

    I bought my first post-apocalypse package of toilet paper today. I was rolling my cart past the “empty aisle” and stopped dead. There, all by it’s lonesome was one 6 pack of “Quilted Northern Plus”. I looked around like I was looking for the hidden camera. Was I being punked? Walked over and examined it like “Hmmmm, what is wrong with it? It’s the only package and there are plenty of people in the store.”

    I put it in my cart and kept shopping and a lady walking by said, oh, damn! they have toilet paper!? I was like no, they are out. She looked at me strange and pointedly looked at the package in my cart with a “I can see it in your car asshole” expression on her face.

    Last one, sorry.

  21. Rockphin says:

    SOS, touchy subject with me. I had a beautiful mahogany office set up and nice office chair but then moved from a 3 bedroom to a 2 bedroom because that’s what the x wanted to do. Her X father-in-law has a really nice office set up now…..

  22. pheloniusphish says:

    I work from home most of the time. But now my wife is also working from home. We can’t work in the same office.

    Try this mathematical film test. It’s pretty amazing. Mine turned out to be “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” I was surprised how this worked.
    This test will predict which of the 18 films listed below is your favorite. Don’t ask me how, but it really works!
    Don’t cheat and look at the film list till you have done the maths!
    Here goes…

    Film Test:
    Pick a number from 1-9.
    Multiply by 3.
    Add 3.
    Multiply by 3 again.
    Now add the two digits together to find your predicted favourite film in the list of 18 films below.

    Film List:
    1. Gone With The Wind
    2. E.T.
    3. Beverly Hills Cop
    4. Star Wars
    5. Forrest Gump
    6. The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
    7. Jaws
    8. Grease
    9. The Joy of Anal Fisting
    10. Casablanca
    11. Jurassic Park
    12. Shrek
    13. Pirates of the Caribbean
    14. Titanic
    15. Raiders Of The Lost Ark
    16. Home Alone
    17. Mrs. Doubt-fire
    18. Toy Story”

  24. Rockphin says:

    That’s pretty funny Pig. cancelling equations will get you the same answer no matter where you start, but this is a good version.

  25. D says:

    I thought all naan was unleavened. I must not have had the other. I love naan though.

    • CavalierKong says:

      It could be different with traditional naan using a tandoori, but all the recipes I’ve found either use yeast or another rising agent such as baking powder/soda. The yeasted version is the closest I’ve been able to get to restaurant style, so that is the one I use.

      • D says:

        It may be the one I eat has yeast too but I thought was unleavened. It should technically have a sweeter taste if it’s leavened. I have never made it myself so maybe I have been deceived

  26. D says:

    I accidentally o restocked before any of this shit started happening, a mix up on my Amazon revolving order. So I’m sitting on 70 extra large rolls of the lotion imbued cottonelle plus. I’ve lost sleep at night worrying when the hordes my come for it

  27. D says:

    Yeah I saw that about Chris Johnson, Kong. That’s fucking crazy. How do become so rich and so famous and then get involved with shit like that. Fucking do something with your life, you have been blessed more than most, why piss that away.

  28. D says:

    Wyoming that’s a lot of moving around in the first but it’s not out of bounds on possible

  29. D says:

    Btw if there is no hand sanitizer where you are, aloe vera and rubbing alcohol. I have seen plenty of both where people are asking when they are gonna get some it. One of the things I haven’t understood about this shit. Bread runs out but the sliced french bread in the bakery is fully stocked. I mean wtf, bread is bread when you are desperate. Milk is out but they have tons of half and half, fucking add water make 2%. 90% of the population would fucking die if they had to make do, fucking starve with grocery stores full of other foods except the ones everyone is hoarding

    • Tim Knight says:

      You know during normal times when you’re in the store and people are oblivious to their surrounding like they’re the only ones there? It’s them. LOL

  30. pheloniusphish says:

    Anybody heard from ER?

  31. CavalierKong says:

    I love naan too. It’s great with so many things. I’ve only recently started learning Indian cooking and it’s been hard to find good traditional resources online. I’ve got a great chicken curry though, and my chicken makhani isn’t bad (still a work in progress). My naan is pretty darn good, but I can’t get my pakora to turn out right and now I can’t find chickpea flour to make it. Why the heck are people buying out chickpea flour? I bet most the people that have bought it out have never used it in their lives, lol.

  32. CavalierKong says:

    Trent Dilfer stated Tua has a better arm than Rodgers and Marino…so there is that, lol.

  33. Mike E. says:

    Sonny – I saw somewhere the schedule will be out sometime in May. They definitely want to do it after the draft to help them schedule prime time matchups. I can’t wait for both the draft and the schedule to come out. I’m so psyched for this season

  34. Mike E. says:

    We haven’t had any trouble acquiring TP lately, and eggs and milk have been relatively plentiful. Paper Towels on the other hand has been impossible to find anywhere. It’s so strange. I guess it’s because people are constantly wiping down surfaces. Any of you having trouble getting paper towels?

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I haven’t really had trouble getting anything

      But I can get it delivered – in queens there are no delivery times available everywhere you go

      I have to put on a mask and walk to the grocery store

    The Good, The Bad and the Ugly Joy of Anal Fisting

    I reposted Piggy’s film test on Facebook but replaced it with ‘Sex With Goats’ because I thought anal fisting was too obscene.

  41. Tim Knight says:

    I definitely think Jordan Love is on our radar as a QB prospect to compete with Josh Rosen as the understudy while Fitz holds the fort for a year.

    • Ken says:

      That would be horrific

      • Tim Knight says:

        I don’t think so. This does not have to be the year to get our franchise QB. There’s questions about all of them. We have so many ways we can go.

        What if we just hold tight and make Phase II a massive competitive situation. This virus might change how teams think about things too.

      • Ken says:

        You only get some many opportunities to be in position to draft a franchise QB and hopefully next year we will not be. We cannot pass up the opportunity we have now for a half assed measures like getting a subpar prospect like Love will make go green and not in a good way

  42. Rockphin says:

    big Disney eyes but still fucking bizarre rectangular pupils

    Strengths: Wills has great size at 6’4”, 312 pounds and he’s a terrific athlete. Wills ran a 5.05 40-time at the NFL combine and had a broad jump of 113 inches. Wills moves well in space, has loose hips and terrific footwork that allows him to make clean blocks in space.

    Not sure what planet this guy was evaluating from, but Wills is not a good athletic, doesn’t have good footwork, has poor technique…he pushes smaller guys out of his way, when he can get in front of them, that screams move me to guard.

  46. steveccnv says:

    I only need to watch 1 play from Andree Thomas, he’s the best OT in this draft. Mekhi is so big you can work with him, but he has poor technique like the rest of them. This is not a good OT class.

    I think the 2nd tier guys are better. Austin Jackson USC, Josh Jones Houston and Isaiah Wilson I like.

  47. Tim Knight says:

    We are going to add good players in the draft. Why are some peeps so worried?

    • steveccnv says:

      I’m not worried, just wondering why so many are pining for players that have no business being 1st rounders.

  48. Tim Knight says:

    OMG… we have 5, 18, 26, 39, 56, 70 etc. and we still freak out! LOL

    • CavalierKong says:

      LOL, are you ok, Tim? Which peeps are worried and freaking out?

      I saw Piggy posted a draft which had us picking Tua and Ken thinks Love is a shitty prospect and wants a QB this draft. But I don’t think we need to call in the National Guard or anything, LOL.

      • Tim Knight says:

        You can’t trade up, this guy or that guy is not the real deal etc. LOL

        I have to say it’s pretty fuckin funny! 😉

  49. Tim Knight says:

    We’ve had how many simulated drafts for like 3 months? They don’t count now?

  50. CavalierKong says:

    This really is a draft where anything might happen for us. We might trade a bunch of capital to move up for Burrow, stand pat and fill out the roster with our 5 picks in the 1st 2 rds, or anything in-between.

    I don’t put the time and effort into player evaluation that some on here do, so I don’t have an opinion on the talents of the respective QBs, but I know I don’t want Tua because of injury concerns. I also am not keen on trading all of this year’s 1sts and next year’s extra 1st to move up for Burrow. The odds just aren’t in our favor for that move. I’d rather keep our picks and fill out the roster.

    But if we do move up for Burrow, it’ll be just as exciting to me as if we don’t. The truth is we should be in a position where we can’t fail. If we trust this FO with their intent and ability, then whichever way they go, we should see success. You can build a successful team both ways and IMO it’s always going to be about the people picking the players and the coach installing a system that will give you continuing success.

    So if we believe in Flores, and if Grier is the right guy at GM, then we should be in a great position no matter what we do.

    • Tim Knight says:

      We have no choice, this is who it is.

      • CavalierKong says:

        I’m talking ideologically as a fan. It should go without saying that what we want individually won’t affect the outcome of this draft or the abilities of the players we pick, etc.

  51. New Age says:

    My newest draft. How’s everyone like it?

    Trade up to 1: R1 P1: using R1 P5, R1 P18, R1 P26, R2 P39, R2 P56, R3 P70
    QB Joe Burrow

    R4 P141- R7 P 251
    Filler for the next GM

    Its Thomas and then there is a drop off, even to Wirfs, which im also not a big fan of. I actually like Josh Jones after Thomas, he seems to have all the traits ya want in an OT, its actually shocking to me the people haven’t been talking him up more.

  53. D says:

    How about this. Lets say they do have Herbert and Tua on equal comparisons for us as our QB. Stay at 5, take our pick or if ones is off the board take the other. Trade 18, and 26, maybe even our 2nd 2nd if we gotta sweeten the deal, with Carolina to move up to 7 grab Thomas, With our first second we grab a RB or S and in the 3rd we get Wilson or Kindley.

  54. Krishna says:

    Facts always get in the way, but I’ll try. Testing, testing!

    As CK mentioned above there are plenty of sources to find the truth and usually you need to corroborate stories to get the full story.

    Viruses are nothing more than genomes (strands of RNA, pieces of genetic material) that fuck with people.

    The original COVID virus, related to SARs, came from China. The genetic material of the virus incorporates some of its host’s genetic material as it mutates/replicates. This is why you are able to trace “origins.”

    Thus, WA and CA seemed to be infected by COVID from China. NYC and eastern cities from Europe, Italy and Spain.

    There was NO ban (theory/bluster) to China, IMO, when 40,000 more travelers from China still came in since “ban”. WTF? And, certainly no ban from Europe until too late. So let’s just be factual. The “travel ban” has not saved us. USA is epicenter of the world now.

    Testing, testing….still not even close to where it should be and needs to be to open the country without backslide. Otherwise, we will not only lose our spring, we may lose our autumn, too.

    Would love to see the Dolphins this year, to see what Grier and co have done.

    Draft is going to be surreal.

    This country, the people for the most part, participating in this serious social distancing experiment, should be getting a lot of credit.

    There will always be assholes among 320 million people.

    If we can only test and trace to increase the chance of success of “coming out” this nightmare sooner rather than later.

      I don’t know where you live, but people here in Vegas are fuckin assholes, when it comes to social distancing. U can’t believe we don’t have more cases here.

      At Trader Joe’s, Walmart and Costco there’s lines to get in, but mostly the people bunch up in line or when there’s tape on the ground to distance people the idiots from the store walk on top of you.

      Inside it’s worse, people still do as usual and park their cars in the middle of the aisles, walk right up next to you, and just crowd in general.

      My neighbors still have friends over on a weekly basis. Guy across the street has more people at his house now, than he did before.

    Mike, I’m going to post a a new blog today….okay?

    Trade down partner, if Okudah is still there at 5.

    The Vikings lost cornerbacks Trae Waynes and Mackensie Alexander in free agency while also parting with cornerback Xavier Rhodes. It’s safe to say they could use some fresh cornerback depth.

    Not saying we should, but I’d entertain the thought of getting some more early picks, then moving back up into the 10-12 range and taking an OT.

    • steveccnv says:

      Our pick is worth 1700, Minn. puck 22 is worth 780, so they’d likely have to include next years 1st and a 2nd this year.

      It’s kind of far to drop, but 26 and 39 would get us to 12, or maybe we just move up to 12.

  61. steveccnv says:

    Recently watched Delpit against Alabama, and didn’t like what I saw. He seems to shy away from contact, and when he does tackle he doesn’t seem to wrap up, so tackling isn’t a strength. In coverage he seems to be Ok, keeps himself in the right position, but didn’t see enough to get much of a read on him.

    What do you guys like about him?

    • wyoming85 says:

      Length and Speed!
      Has BallHawk tendencies!

      Not saying he’s Deon! But Deon wasn’t much for sticking his nose in there either! 😉

      • steveccnv says:

        The highlights look great. He seems like a QB bully, doesn’t mind getting dirty to hit them, but RBs and WRs…

    • D says:

      I mean i see pretty much what you do, but he has elite level traits in the coverage department, and i kind of like Wyoming’s comparison to Deion, because he does have some of Deion’s coverage traits along with Deions non-commit to not stick his nose in there. To me though, we are wierd in the fact that we have grown accustomed to our S being one of the tackle leaders on our team and we need to break that tradition, we shouldnt have to have a S thats stout at tackling lol, we need a guy who covers better, can run with a TE and RB in coverage, someone who keeps the top from being taken off of the secondary. Im not worried about tackling traits nearly as much as i am coverage, so he fits what i like better than say McKinney who is kinda the mirror opposite.

      • steveccnv says:

        They call the position safety for a reason, last line of defense. I guess he’s an FS then.

        But yeah I’m kind of with you in that I like the cover safeties better, especially since you can’t really pop a receiver any longer.

        It’s the lesser of 2 evils, the S that can’t tackle vs the S that can’t cover. One can herd them out of bounds, but the other can’t keep up with them so his tackling skills don’t come into play often enough.

      • D says:

        Trust me if we were still in the John Lynch, Steve Atwater days, id be all over a clean your clock Safety.

      • D says:

        Receivers just gave up on passes running throuogh their zone, their pass defense was pure unadulterated fear.

  62. D says:

    Speaking of assholes, I was at the checkout at like a little general store so i didn’t have to deal with the crowds of assholes at Walmart, and this dumb-ass woman comes up and practically leans over me at the register to ask the cashier if they had any hand sanitizer. They also have the floors marked off at 6ft spaces, they also have plenty of area where she could have asked them and not leaned over me in the line. Thats one of the U75’s right there Steve lol. Im glad i am in control of my inner demon (well for the most part) or i would have seen if i could social distance her across the room.

  63. D says:

    Fuck, i have been trending this thing for over a week now and today the numbers went back up again, we have finally got under 1K new confirmed cases per hour rate, and now we are back over , at 1.5 per hour again.

  64. Mike E. says:

    Piggy – Yeah man, go ahead!

  65. Mike E. says:

    I just did a big shopping with my wife, the line to get into the supermarket was over 40 minutes because they’re staggering groups of people in order to not overcrowd. At least we were able to get just about everything including paper towels for the first since this whole thing started.

  66. Mike E. says:

    Krishna – Do you want to test for assholes? That would probably help the overall picture if we could separate them for the rest of us. 😀

    • D says:

      Most wont like that test, and the ones that do, will really like it and you wont. Still you have the magic hand, so…..might make new friends.

    • D says:

      We could put them in a colony, for example i say wall off Utah and put them there. You think of that sounds really bad, i mean they are assholes, who is going to come to their defense.

      • Mike E. says:

        I don’t think drg would appreciate that. He probably has enough a-holes there already, but more likely less than in Joisey.

      • D says:

        We will just let the Mormons have them, what better punishment for being an asshole than to have them live in a place where they visit them daily to speak about the Mormon faith. Win win, either join the Mormon or suffer, Mormons get more numbers to populate their Utopia’s.
