Defense - Rollers - 08-26-2018

I want to check out the d on the first few series.  Looking for some improvement.  But then I'm the eternal optimist

Defense played really well tonight. Nice pressure from the interior push and Williams played well. Matakevich ain't starting. bostic I guess. Dupree had a little pressure as well. Overall an encouraging performance

Certainly better than last game.  Thumbsup

I *want* to like Bud Dupree - I really do - but he always seems to "play slow".

Ola Adeniyi - I want to *not* like him.... but I do. Kid's got hustle

I thought he would struggle to make the roster.  Looks like he's in no?  I am sick about them missing on Jarvis Jones and now Bud Dupree.  Not sure either pick was considered a reach at the time they grabbed those two but they were two horrific misses.  I'm not sold on Watt either by the way.  I think Edmunds was a big reach where they drafted him as well.  If he doesn't start then what was the point?  He was supposed to be some kind of hybrid linebacker/safety.  Not gonna happen.  I wish we had taken best player at that spot.  Someone else here said Adeniyi would make the roster and I thought he MIGHT get to the practice squad. I just hope we get something out of him this year.

Jones was a major league whiff if we ever had one. When I saw his college  highlight reel of career his sacks, of which  he was only blocked on one of them, a 120 lb wr, I knew we bought a load of crap. Nice kid, but way over rated, plus his hand got screwed up his rookie year.

Dupree reminds me of Carlos Emmons. A tremendous physical specimen, just not a real good football player. I’m afraid Bud is just another guy that can’t turn the corner on an Offensive Tackle.
