Michigan vs. Colorado 2016

Post by markg » Sun May 07, 2017 2:16 pm

Here you can view a game involving the first three draft picks by the Cowboys - Taco Charlton (#33), Chidobe Awuzie (#4), and Jourdan Lewis (#26), as well as their seventh round selection Jordan Carrell (#92). Early in the game, Awuzie shows off his corner blitzing moves I hope to see a ton of at the NFL level.

Taco seems solid.. not a "War Daddy" by any stretch though.

Ellis was a good player, definitely, but not a war daddy. He averaged 7 sacks a season, and recorded double-digit sacks only once. But he was consistent and brought it every game. I think Taco will be that kind of player, not that there's anything wrong with that.

Since Ellis was a LDE, I really hope Tapper will be much better than Ellis's bookend Ebenezer Ekuban :|

It's a big IF he can get and stay healthy to contribute significantly -- just like LB J. Smith. Both, as well as all the rookies, will make it quite interesting this year with busted plays and big plays galore. However, I know Rod Marinelli is a happy camper with all the chess pieces he's been given!

Last year's defense with Carr, Claiborne, Church, and Wilcox, peaked long ago and there just wasn't the room to grow with the expectation for turnovers and sacks low. With the new players on defense, I really expect both turnovers and sacks to be +10 with Chidobe Awuzie becoming a huge playmaker.

I agree, however, IF Tapper can stay healthy it's a good sign for the defense, but even if he doesn't David Irving is a guy I have alot of confidence in to grow under Marinelli. It's a problem I'm sure Marinelli feels better about now than during the '16-'17 season.

:iamwithstupid: Unless we have a total injury plaque like my beloved NY Mets are going through, this defense should be considerably better next year. Its rare to have high expectations and actually meet them, or come very close to meeting them, with my teams. Hopefully 2017 will be such a rare occasion. It feels like the early 90s again. :lasso:

Hey Brother Tom! If you're also a Knicks fan like I am, you're truly a glutton for punishment out there in Dodgers and Lakers territory.
