re: Is JD5 similar to Lamar Jackson in ability? - TheMuffinMan
Lamar is a more dangerous runner than almost any non-RB in recent memory. He runs with more lean and contact balance than Jayden, is probably a touch faster, and has more wiggle. The smaller Vince Young comparisons resonate with me based on how Jayden glides around the field. He’s got incredibly...

You need a baseline buffer, based on reaction time and throw distance. A flag hitting the instant after an infraction was thrown prior to said infraction and is almost certainly bullshite....

re: Miss St PFF grades - TheMuffinMan
I expected Emery to be our second best lineman, as I’m sure most of us did.. and I’ve been watching him specifically. He’s whiffed badly on a few key blocks in short yardage and generally hasn’t seemed to handle stunts/communication well, though I’ll concede that the reps at RG where he looked lost ...

re: Miss St PFF grades - TheMuffinMan
Lester did you watch much of Emery Jones? I thought he looked lost and sluggish for most of the first half, so I’m surprised to see him leading the linemen. Maybe it was that bad of a day for everyone...

re: Ryan Clark doubles down: Pickens is faster, jumps higher, more explosive than Jefferson - TheMuffinMan
[quote]Pickens may not be a top 50 receiver in the league.[/quote] :lol: Asinine. He could always headcase himself out of the league, but barring that type of self-destruction, Pickens is going to be in the top 100 [i]players[/i] list in the next two years. I hope their QB play is good enough th...

I see exactly how dumb your straw man argument sounds :lol: The concept of “talent” as opposed to “skill” seems to elude you, but at least you’ve got plenty of company. ...

re: “George Pickens is much more talented than Justin Jefferson” - TheMuffinMan
I think Pickens is more talented with respect to hands and press physicality only, which I said explicitly in addition to various other detailed expansions on my position. [quote]His ability to stop, start, and accelerate relative to his frame cannot be taught or learned[/quote] Some component...

This is what you replied to: [quote]Since speed and weight can be developed with pure effort, most intelligent discussion of these traits concedes that talent disparities are the major determinant of potential, which is always going to be a major topic of interest with young players. [/quote] ...

[quote]Speed at the elite level Jefferson has cannot be developed because it’s a result of his ability to accelerate, which he was born with in the form of fast twitch muscle fibers.[/quote] :lol: What? Yes, people’s speed ceilings are largely inborn, and Jefferson has much more speed talent tha...

re: “George Pickens is much more talented than Justin Jefferson” - TheMuffinMan
That’s probably true to a large extent. Pickens probably resorts to circus plays when Jefferson would’ve solved the body geometry problem earlier. To refine my stance further, I’d take Pickens over Jefferson if I needed to film a circus catch or have my WR run block. Both of those I attribute to...

re: “George Pickens is much more talented than Justin Jefferson” - TheMuffinMan
Well yeah. We’re talking about talent, a notoriously non-quantified entity :lol: Why do you think measurables = talent? When Bonds juiced, did he get more talented? If you say yes, then we’re just working with different definitions and I’d argue yours is so unconventional as to be useless in th...

re: “George Pickens is much more talented than Justin Jefferson” - TheMuffinMan
I’ve watched them both for years and love scouting/profiling football players. Odell never had a great drop rate but was among the most talented catchers in recent memory (because there is more to catch rate than “talent”). Pickens has spectacular catch/catch radius ability that Jefferson doesn’t, d...

re: “George Pickens is much more talented than Justin Jefferson” - TheMuffinMan
[quote]Based on what exactly? Explain what is more talented about Pickens than Jefferson.[/quote] Hands and strength. Through their first and potentially second years of college, the list was hands + strength + size + speed. Jefferson made up those last two by combine time and had also added an a...

re: “George Pickens is much more talented than Justin Jefferson” - TheMuffinMan
I don’t know if you’ve seen them both play football, but Pickens looks every bit the freak talent/headcase that everyone from HS through the NFL has appraised him to be. Yes, Jefferson had a monster combine that caught us all off guard. But he can’t ragdoll DBs and rip down one handed contortionist ...

[quote]Do you think: Running routes Getting open Catching Are talents? JJ seems pretty good at those things. Somewhat decent, I’d say.[/quote] I would consider those skills. Talent typically refers to innate ability that can be channeled and built upon to form specific skills. Pickens has flash...
