NFL Lead Scout, Bleacher Report. Home office linebacker. I help run #NFL1000. The simple things you see are all complicated.
From yesterday: In the 2019 season, NFL teams put five DBs on the field on 59% of their snaps, and six or more DBs on 21% of their snaps. So, it stands to reason that slot defenders are important. Here are the 11 best.
Steven Nelson is giving up five inches in height and 35 pounds in weight to D.K. Metcalf here. But if you can beat physicality off the line, establish inside position, and go for the ball, that don't matter. Outstanding technique.
Tre'Davious White should take up ballroom dancing. This footwork is just obnoxiously good.
...you also have too many plays like this, where I picture Peters while ZZ Top's "Waiting For the Bus" plays in my head. If he ever matches his acumen to his athleticism, he'll be unstoppable.
Meanwhile, the NFL Network is doing better news than a lot of news channels right now. Kudos.
Tyrod Taylor out there running his ass off in a blowout for a team that clearly thinks he's utterly worthless. He deserves much, much better than this.
You know who a. Actually inherited a mess; b. Didn't bitch about it; and c. Actually fixed most of it?
Here's a better angle of the William Hayes injury. You can clearly see him kicking his right leg out, and the bad bend. The NFL needs to eliminate the "weight on the QB rule" now. Like, today.
