Blinkscout Game 1 ... Bears

September 13, 2021 01:58PM
The Bears have a lot of pieces, just missing QB .. so I'm glad we got to warm up against them rather than it being a trap game later in the season when it slows down for Fields.

The Great

1) Excitement. Just flat out joy experienced ...

2) Justin Hollins. When he came out I liked him (I rate Ducks higher for some reason) and thought he could be a situational rusher with some upside ... I did not see him becoming a fully well rounded player that we could count on to man the edge. Like ... yeah we have Floyd but Hollins looks better .. and that's the piece I was worried about not having.

3) Ramsey is playing on fire.

The Good

4) AD with 1 sack, 1 assist, and 1 holding. I'm going to track his sack assists this year.

5) Kenny Young is playing like I saw him at UCLA.

6) Kupp after the catch is one of my favorite things about watching our games. Now he has more time to make that first move.

7) Van sighting ... that's just a deep group. Scary.

8) I like the defensive rotation along the line ... Hoecht got around the corner once, what OT is going to expect that kind of athleticism from a backup? From the philosophy it looks like we;'re using this will be important.

9) David Long making a play on the ball.

10) Rochelle looking like a vet?

11) Havenstein against Mack holding his own ... was not expecting that.

12) Hendo on the goal line ... I expect him to slash through holes but I like his acceleration into defender to get to paydirt.

13) Higbee involvement ... Im a fan of TE play so I like him getting the ball fast so he can become the aggressor.

14) Woods TD catch. Not fair.

The Bad

15) It looks like our D scheme is "wait and hit" ... so far. Which puts us in a "might get run on" position. So I get that we are tightening that up, but I don't like being run on.

16) Why is Cooper catching punts? If I had the choice to have no one catch punts and just let the ball roll or have Cooper, I'd take no one.

17) 1st half run game was not good. We got away with it here, but we need to not have that be our standard.

18) We need to cover the TE better. Kmet is a good player, but there are a lot of high quality TEs in the league now .. we can't have a weakness there.


19) Main thing I want to say is that the rules and transfer portal have changed everything. Small schools can beat big schools ... having a 5th year of eligibility free also changed a lot.

20) Best QB in college is Kenny Pickett on Pitt. He's gonna be this year's Zach Wilson, but faster pure foot speed. If Rattler comes out I figure they go 1 and 2. I've been wrong on QBs before but I have made alterations to include certain things, like ... he and Peyton Manning are friends. So his head and personality check out.

21) Lots of RB talent on smaller schools. Lots of game changing RBs.

22) Expect a lot of upsets.

Okay that's my jam. Questions and comments welcome as always ...
