All the new coaches kind of showing me what to expect come draft.
Here me out please.
Judge is old school and physical style football. Garret and columbo want to run the ball. Ok now how does that affect the draft ? Well 1 more thing we brought in phins dc who basically had nothing and did a good job. Well we have more then nothing so I assume we don't give this guy a lot and expect him to do his magic and hope we are better then last year.
Shift back to offensive side of the ball with where I was going. Everyone knows our o line has been awful for the most part. Garret I'm sure knows and anyone else that schemes against giants. So to me this spells ot in draft first pick not Simmons or a corner or wr. No way. Not too mention skins will be drafting chase which we need an answer for. We will grab the best o line in draft and a center as well. I dont think much in way of defense. I love Simmons but cant see it. I hope I'm wrong but this is all setting up to rebuild oline yet again and run ball and protect our rookie. Not much into defense this year unless fa.or late picks.
I've heard that criticism of Garrett and never accepted it. He went 13-3 with a fourth round Rookie draft pick at QB. And he did it by running the ball and keeping his QB in safe harbors. Linahan might have called plays but Garrett was his boss and the architect of their dominant running game. Before that he helped build an attack around DelMarco Murray. Who had 3 all pro seasons wiht Dallas and in 2014 led the league in yardage and touchdowns while winning offensive player of the year.
The one thing about Barkley, he is a home run hitter, a big play guy. He is not a grind it out, ball control , type of back like Henry or Elliot .
I think Barclay is under-rated as a power back. The only negative yardage he gets is when our line gets pushed into the backfield and there's nowhere to run. That happened all too frequently, as we all know. If there is any type of hole, Barkley almost never goes down on first contact. Fix this OL, and Barkley will give you 5 YPC. He can take the ball downfield in small chunks, or 50 yards at time with just a little room to run. I'd like to have a Brandon Jacobs in-house to beat up the defense; but lacking that, I think Barclay can still dominate fourth quarters. It all starts with the line. Remember, Derrick Ward looked like an all-pro with us, then he went to Tampa and basically fizzled.

UncleJoe10: I thought Buck Allen ran hard and would keep him aboard as a nice power running back up to Saquan.

rodney27: You're right about the fumbling problem, tl65taog. I just don't think it can be fixed. He had in preseason, has it at a record pace now, and had the same problem at Duke. If he hasn't fixed it in all that time...I just don't know if he can.

tl65taog: yes the fumbling problem has to be fixed, but you have to be fair about it
