  1. None. He commented specifically on it. Said something like "Every year there is a surprise cut, and if there's going to be one this year, I'll play a hunch and say Stevan Ridley." When has their surprise cut ever been a 25 year old starting RB with a career 4.5 YPC? He would be starting for the Colts week 1 if he was cut. Maroney was about 25 with a YPC over 4.
  2. I have a dynasty rookie draft tonight - where would you slot this guy currently on your draft board?
  3. Cutting Ridley and picking up BJGE sounds like something Belichick would do.
  4. Is now the time to buy on this guy in keeper/dynasty or is now the time to sell while you still can? As good as he looks while on the field, he seems like an injury waiting to happen.
  5. 22 catches on 25 targets + more snaps = offense fixer! Will it happen?
  6. Relax, I was the one that posted the stat that he hasn't dropped a catchable ball in over a year - I know he has good hands. I was just playing both sides of the bandwagon and pointing out that 13 catches on 24 targets is a very poor rate of success. I was just curious to know why it's been so poor and am eager to see if it can be improved upon in the upcoming weeks.
  7. Targets can be a deceptive stat. A pass thrown 10 feet over a player's head that is clearly uncatchable is a target. A pass thrown out of bounds where the receiver has no chance to catch the ball is a target. Having watched both Baltimore games, I haven't seen any issues with Pitta that would concern me going forward in terms of him catching passes he should catch. Flacco's misfired on some of the targets. I can't recall any off the top of my head that I thought Pitta should've caught that he didn't. Overall, I think he's been very impressive and what the number of targets accurately represents is the huge role he's had and the trust Flacco clearly has in him.Thanks for the info. I'm looking forward to seeing the Ravens this week and will be looking to see if Pitta's the type of guy that's only capable of making catches that are on him or if he's athletic enough to go up/away to get balls that aren't perfect. The catch/target percentage is the only red flag I see so far.
  8. Can anyone that has seen the Ravens first two games this season comment on how a guy that hasn't dropped a pass in over a season has only 13 catches on 24 targets? I get that everyone's jumping on the bandwagon and he's been very productive in terms of targets, but that is a pretty brutal catch/target percentage if you simply look at stats w/o having seen the games. Has Flacco been erratic, does Pitta have a very limited catch radius - what's the scoop here?
  9. I don't have the link handy, but I read somewhere on PFF that Pitta has a ZERO drop rate in 2011 & 2012 - meaning he hasn't dropped a catchable ball in that span of games. (knocking on wood)
  10. Didn't the Bears really struggle defending the pass over the middle last year (slot WR's and TE's)?
  11. The 6'3" 216 were his combine measurements. It makes sense that is how they would list him. They likely updated his measurements with how he showed up to camp as part of finalizing the roster. It's normal for players to cut weight pre-combine in an attempt to run a quicker 40. If he started camp at 229, he's likely below that now, and more importantly, he's been impressing at whatever weight he's at.http://www.nfl.com/combine/profiles/alshon-jeffery?id=2533039 If a guy with previous weight/dedication issues has indeed put on 13 pounds since the combine, I think there's some potential for concern with this situation. Of course, the fact that he's apparently grown an inch during the same span also makes you wonder!
  12. Please don't be the next Big Mike Williams: Brad Biggs ‏@BradBiggs Not sure what to make of this. #Bears list WR Alshon Jeffery on official Web site at 6-4, 229. All summer he's been 6-3, 216.
  13. YPC this preseason: vs. Tennessee: 2.4 YPC vs. Denver: 3.4 YPC vs. KC: 6.6 YPC vs. Oakland: 3.5 YPC KC gave up 29 points/game this preseason (3rd worst in the NFL, just a fraction off the worst) I just don't see it...yet.
  14. I think the only thing we can say about this battle that can't be debated is that Wilson deserves a shot with the 1's. Go from there.
  15. Not watching the game but the current box score on Pead reads: 6 carries for -5 yards 2 rec for -3 yards Not a good start for a supposed 1st round dynasty pick!
