Green Bay Packers News Talk / Re: Stacked at wr, is it time to trade Allison?
« Last post by RT on August 18, 2018, 09:38:28 AM »
I wonder if Allison's role really will increase much from last year. If the one drive Rodgers played is a reflection of things to come, Graham will be the 3rd WR and Kendricks/Lewis will play the part of the conventional TE.  If this is the coaching staff's vision it will make Allison very expendable.

I liked WR James Washington....a lot, in the last draft. His rep was that he didn't have serious speed (mid 4.5 40), but he kept winning the battle against his cover guy and catching balls deep. Very prolific too and a 2017 Biletnikoff winner. He looked very talented when we played the Steelers. I'm not saying I'd trade in CB Jackson for him (he went at #60), but da*n he looked talented, for a rookie.

On the boardcast James Lofton compared him to a young Chris Chambers, I see a lot of that in him. He looks like he is going to be a very good pro.

Jake. Kumerow.

I only saw some highlights, which of course included the long TD.  I was kinda struck by how slow he looked, in terms of straight-line speed.  Don't think the safety was super fast, but Kumerow gained no ground on him.  And it looked like a big linebacker almost ran him down. 

Not sure the speed is that big a deal.  But he's clearly NOT a speed guy, the pro-day time we've seen does not underestimate his straight-line speed.

He's kinda like Jordy that way.  Doesn't look fast but gets by people.  Pulled up his draft profile he has decent speed.  4.55 guy.

I'm sure most understant this, but their is a difference between 40 times, short area speed (quickness) and long speed. There are many 4.5ish guys that never get run down (Jordy Nelson) because their long speed is much better than their 40 times suggest.

yes, but he is more or less right.

I actually agree with most of Ramsey's evaluations. Though the "doesn't suck" application to Rodgers and Brady is breathtakingly underwhelming. But "Matty Ice" Ryan? Put the heat on him, and he melts like a popsicle in south Texas in August. Flacco? He won a SB. Even though it took a power failure in the Super Dome to allow his team to regroup and not get blown out by the 'Niners. Eli? He got hot twice in the playoffs, but overall, mediocre at best. Garoppollo? Do a few games make a career? We'll see what happens now that teams have film on him, and can see how to shut him down. I expect Wade Phillips defense to shut him down completely  when they play this year. So, where did he err? He answered questions when asked about QB's in the NFL. His responses are from a very confident, very good defensive player. To call him a "attention whore" is at least as outrageous as his QB evaluations. I'm actually surprised you took this so personally, RT, since you are usually a top notch poster on this board.

Didn't take it personal ricky, but I do think it says a lot about the person making those statements. Any time a professional in any profession  feels the need to discredit and belittle the accompishments of others in their line work in an attempt to make themself look or feel better is not as confident of a person as they try to portray.

How about interviewing a QB to give an evaluation of Ramsey and say he’s a so-so CB that might be slightly near-sighted.
Then see if he responds.
