Revamp New Coach, new qb, new era
Posted 01 December 2012 - 03:50 PM
Fire Andy Reid ASAP. Hire Giants DC Perry Fewell as our new head coach. Our defensive players fit his scheme and should allow for minimal rebuilding. He coached a superbowl defense, so he has a winning pedigree which is important to Lurie. He's a good motivator. His players play hard for him. He's young and energetic. Possibly, the best thing though is it hurts the Giant. He brings his defensive assistant Al Holcomb and promotes him to Defensive Coordinator. This should add continuity with the scheme. I also beleive Pat Shurmur will be fired in Cleveland, so since he runs the same offense as Reid this should allow our team to pick up the scheme quick and be successful. I also think he'll call better plays and utilize the offense better than Reid and Mornhinweg. Lastly, he's good with young QB's. Overall I think this coaching staff gives us a great chance to win right away and maybe the best choice economically and personnel wise. They allow us to keep most of our players with little overhaul.
Now onto the team:
Re-structure Nnamdi's deal because he hasn't played at an elite level. If he's the team player he comes off as, he will re-structure to come back and finish what he started.
Our 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 7th for a 1st somewhere in the 17 -20 range
Use our 1st rounder to move back to the 10-15 range and pick up a 2nd.
So our draft looks like 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7
Mike Vick- I like him and don't blame him for our teams bad play but it's time to start fresh and his contracts huge.
Danny Watkins- Bust
Dion Lewis- We can upgrade here
Riley Cooper- Same
Clay Harbor- Hasn't developed
Dallas Reynolds- SUCKS
Demetress Bell- Makes Reynolds look like a HOF'er
Darry Tapp- Takes reps from youn guys
Curtis Marsh- Bust
Nate Allen- Just awful
David Sims- Worse than Allen. Really it's possible
DRC- Hasn't played great, but he's young, supremely athletic and still has loads of potential.
Jake Scott- Solid veteran who can start at either guard spot if needed
Jon Dorenbos- Reliable long snapper why let him go
King Dunlap- Plays solid when called upon
Derek Landri- Plays hard, this team needs that
Trent Edwards- Good number three QB
OT Branden Albert Kansas City- Pairing him with Peters should give us the top set of tackles in the league. Also allows Herreman to slide back inside to guard, where I feel he's better.
SS Kenny Phillips Giants- Decides to join Fewell. Provides us with better safety play and hurts the Giants more.
DE Cliff Avril Detroit- Somehow he slips away from Detroit and comes to philly to give us an elite DE opposite of Cole
WR Brandon Gibson St. Louis- Solid possession receiver who I beleive has the skills to push Maclin for the number 2 spot. Adds another weapon at the very least.
C Dan Koppen Denver- Solid veteran center who can start a few games if Kelce's not ready and provide a solid backup to him
LB Johnathan Casillas New Orleans- Provides a valuable backup at LB and plays ST's.
1. Ezekial Ansah DE BYU- 6'5" 270lbs. and run the 100m dash in under 11 seconds. He's a freak athlete reminiscent of JPP. I expect him to climb draft boards and be a 1st round pick.
1. Aaron Murray QB Georgia- When all is said and done i firmly beleive Murray will be the top QB. He has all the tangibles, athletic, strong arm, good accuracy and production (3 straight 3000 yard seasons in a pro style offense against SEC foes). His only drawback is height (he's only 6'1"). Some may argue his decision making is weak, but the fact that he is the top rated passer in the NCAA and he has 30 tds to only 7 ints, makes me feel he'll be fine with good NFL coaching.
2. David Amerson CB N.C. State- Had 13 ints last season and at 6'2" 200lbs he's a big physical corner. Should be a good prospect to groom behind Nnamdi for a year, then we can cut him with a viable successor waiting
3. Bacarri Rambo FS Georgia- Physical hard hitting safety with good coverage ability. Along with Phillips should give us our best safety duo in years
4. Kenjon Barner RB Oregon- Speedy change of pace back to cmpliment Shady and Brown. Can also push the return specialists for a job there
6. Joseph Fauria TE UCLA- At 6'7" he provides a huge redzone target for our new QB
7. Trey Burton FB Florida- He's an interesting prospect. He went to Florida as a QB hoping to be the next Tebow. While there he played QB, RB, FB, TE, WR and ST's. His versatility and playmaking ability from anywhere in the formation make him a valuable asset to our team.
QB- Murray, Foles, Edwards
RB- McCoy, Brown, Barner
WR- Jackson, Maclin, Gibson, Avant, Johnson
TE- Celek, Fauria
LT- Peters, Dunlap
LG- Mathis, Scott
C- Kelce, Koppen
RT- Albert, Kelly
Overall, I beleive it will take some time for the young QB get into a rhythm and find his groove. But, i'm figuring Shurmur will utilize our RBs more and use a strong rushing attack to set up the play action and passing game. Our revamped o-line has the potential to be one of the leagues best. It should provide plenty of time for our young QB and open running lanes Shady can walk through. I would fully expect Lesean to have his best season. There are enough weapons in the WR/TE core for any QB to be successful. I feel confidant that with better blocking and leaning on the rushing game will allow Murray to manage the game well, and be successful.
DE- Cole, Avril, Ansah, Graham, Curry, Hunt
DT- Jenkins, Cox, Patterson, Landri, Thornton
SAM- McClain, Casillas
MIKE- Ryans, Matthews, Chaney
WILL- Kendricks, Jordan
CB- Nnamdi, DRC, Amerson, Boykin, Hughes
FS- Rambo, Anderson
SS- Phillips, Coleman
I beleive, this unit will turn it around under Fewell and lead this team. Fewell's Giant defenses have had great pass rushes. I expect this trend to carry over. Despite a down year there is tons of talent and with the additions of Avril and Ansah, I fully expect a better season getting after the QB. At linebacker, Ryans is solid in the middle. I expect Kendricks to improve going into year two. The wild card is Rolando McClain he has prototype size, speed and ability. It will be interesting to see if he puts it together with better team and coaching. I'm gonna give the Nnamdi, DRC duo one more year and hope that better front seven and safety play helps their game improve. As for the safeties Phillips and Rambo should be a huge upgrade over Allen and Coleman. Plus Phillips knows the defense and should aid in the transition.
The specialists stay the same because their pretty solid. As far as returners go, I like Boykin and Johnson, but I brought in competition in Barner to bring out the best.
Overall, I'd say this team will be lead by a stout defense and a very good rushing game. Due to having a rookie QB and the unpredictabiliy that comes with young QBs, it would be hard to say this is a playoff team, let alone a superbowl contender. However, if the coaching is solid, the D plays tough, the running game is effective and Murray doesn't lose games, I see no reason this can't bee a .500+ team with a wild card berth. Also this team is very young and the moves made should allow time to gel and develop to make a serious run in a year or two and stay relevant for another 5-6 years.
FWIW (not much at all) Made this team on madden... Dynasty lol
