I'm trying to decide if you're a troll or deeply misled.
I'm thinking troll.
Very very few WRs or DBs are "low 4.3 at least." If you "need" to be that, there basically wouldn't be anyone playing there.
This year four guys, total, ran "low 4.3" and that's only if you include 4.35 as low. Not four WRs or four DBs, but four combine prospects total.
In 2016, five guys. In 2015, four guys. In 2014, three. In 2013, four. In 2012, one. In 2011, three. In 2010, three. In 2009, three. 2008 was tied for the best year ever, with eight. In 2007, six (three if you don't include the 4.35 guys), and in the earliest year available online, eight again, and all stalwarts: Tye Hill, Johnathan Joseph, Chad Jackson, Tim Jennings, Michael Huff, Willie Reid, Devin Aromashodu and Reggie McNeal.
So in total, only about four to five guys a year are fast enough to meet what you're calling the minimum standards to play WR or CB. Less if you throw out the 4.35s which really aren't "low," are they? That's maybe two WRs and two DBs a year.
I don't go off of numbers alone. I watch him play. He is not a game speed guy in the pads. Gilmore didn't have to be because he stayed on his man. Say, better than cromartie. When cromartie made an error, which he did more than Gilmore, he lost speed to correct himself which is why he fell off. But, cromartie ran fast in a 40?
Seymour is a corner who isn't ideal as of right now for zone. He doesn't have closing speed and did not display the awareness to supercede his poor reactions. The game was simply too fast for him.
He will get tore up by vets who will pick him apart. Brady, breeds, Ryan, newton and even Winston are good at selling reads. 2017 without Gilly is gonna suck.
But yeah. I'm a troll. This troll can go on if you'd like, but I want to make sure its worth my time to hold class.
Wow, so 4.39 isn't really that fast anymore? So why can't hardly anyone on the planet run that fast? How many people do you know that are very fast boyst, LOL I sense your joking with this post?
I unfortunately think he is being serious about the 4.39 thing
I dont even know what to say about that other then lay off the crack
What is actually important to these dbs is quick twitch reactionary speed and timing and closing speed.....being able to run a 4.4 is a def plus.....these dbs are out there often BAITING a qb to throw to a spot and then closing on it.
For instance...our very own mighty mouse that got a second contract from us but got cut this year....if the guy was Seymore's height imo he would not only still be with the team but one of our main playmakers.......
see above. I'll refuse to debate any issue with you until we goback to your wweek 2 argument that buy into Rex's great system was low because players were the fault.
I really hope its Leslie Frazier scheme..... Did anyone do any research on the Panthers defense the past five years . If not you should because its not impressive at all
a high octane offense blasting away other teams helped a lot when the offense wore out in the second half and Al the defense had to to was hold them to less than 30 ppg.
Carolina was a good defense. But Denver's was great. And there is a big difference
