    didn't know it 'til just now, checkin' out 40 times, and.... Thomas Davis was drafted as a FS.... (according to nfldraftscout).

    And I guarantee he'd smoke a "healthy" Perryman in a foot race.
    did a little diggin' just for posterity's sake, and.... 'bout a 0.15 second differential.... fairly substantial.

    Denzel low 4.58 high 4.81

    Thomas D. low 4.42 high 4.66

    All good, but the "old" moniker still doesn't fit.

    I'd take the other side of that bet. Pretty tight division. Colts have the best oline by far, a good D, and as long as Brisett protects the ball they will be in every game. Fwiw, he has one of the lowest INT rates of all time, but in a pretty small sample size. I expect him to grow a lot this year. He will be a better starter than 1/4 to 1/3 of the league. They will be in the playoff hunt IMO.

    Jags still seem like a train wreck waiting to happen to me. That D is lacking serious leadership.

    We won a game against a very good team. A team that many experts predicted will make the playoffs while we miss them. And these are predictions AFTER Luck retired.

    So sit down, stay in your lane and watch this thing unfold.

    Yep...old and slow...didn't say he sucked...he knows his stuff, and knew where to be to make the tackles...but in coverage and pursuit he was a lot slower than he used to be...and a good team will expose that. I think a healthy Perryman with White will be a more athletic combination...I would also like to see the rook get worked in...see what we have there. Don't get me wrong...I think Davis was a good pickup...having reliable experience to bolster the depth of our LB corp wasn't a bad move...I just want our other backers to play into the starting positions, so Davis is a backup by seasons end.
    Davis is our only true LBer who does not get routinely run over by OL, RB's, TE's, WR's...... our other LB's are too small(some were ex safeties) and for smaller quicker guys they do not cover well.....

    anyone notice how the colt OL knocked Ingram airborne?...... and pushed around our DT's..... I don't remember seeing Tillery in the game?

    anyone notice how big and fast the new raiders are?...... they dominated denver's defense and the raiders defense swarmed the running game...... they may lose the game but they are definitely going to hit mahomes hard a few times this week.......
