    Re: Baldy's Breakdown

    Great clips.

    They all were impressive to me, but 2 stood out. First was him standing in the pocket when he knew he was about to get creamed and threw a great ball to Brown before Brown even really broke out of his route.

    Second was that subtle sidestep of Geno Atkins. That's the type of calm, in the pocket movement that the great ones have.

    Great stuff.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    3. Someone brings up Lamar's possible getting hurt from running every week, but the hardest hit he took all game, and probably all season, happened in the pocket on that TD pass to Hollywood. I'm glad Baltimore highlighted the hit (a hit that should have got a roughing the passer flag for the helmet hit).
    4. Lamar is a freaking cheat code!!
    5. He's gotten pretty good at those sidearm throws hasn't he?
    I agree that hit in the pocket was harder than any hit he had all game. People kill me about these running qbs getting hurt.

    Yeah, he did - after the scouts & the coaching staff did massive amounts of due-diligence pre-draft & Oz & EDC hustled their butts off to finagle the #32 pick.

    IOW the combined forces of Crowdom, from the high command down to the waterboys**, labored long & hard & diligently so that LJ could "fall into our lap" - & they damn well should get the credit they deserve, loud & long.

    I finally had a chance to watch the game tonight. I didnít know the two incompletions included a spike. And he put virtually every ball exactly where it needed to be. Itís like a video game.

    Jk he releases it from like two yards behind the LOS. Still, over 40 yards through the air on a dime off his back foot is still damn impressive

    Thanks! I was sloppy with my description. That's an important point, even if he wasn't far behind the line.

    It's crazy how Geno Atkins had Lamar dead to rights. Lamar is making our OL look better than it really is, but then again how many great OLs are there anymore?

    Stanley, Yanda, and Zeus are better than most teams can claim. We could certainly upgrade the other two spots but we're in damn good shape on the OL.

    Even Skura has grown quite a bit on me. Not pro bowl level, but he can hold his own.

    Really, the only spot on the OL that I would like to upgrade next year is Bozeman. Not sure if we have what we need on the roster already...including Bozeman's improvement, but he's the last weak link IMHO. I would like to have a high quality guard in the program ready to go though for whenever Yanda retires.

    I wish we got to see some Powers this year to get some idea of what we have there

    And Lamar never stopped looking downfield. A guy who can make small moves like that is probably more frustrating than a running QB.
