    I remember asking you about Eifert and you pretty much forgave his lack of production because he was a second option. I understand your frustration with our D but you cant bash JJ for a lack of impact while ho humming a guy you trumped as a can't miss at TE.

    I definitely think an NT or ILB could start on day one because we don't have much in front of them.
    39 receptions, 11+ yards per catch is far from lack of production. He would have been the 5th leading recdeiving on our team last year and he had 2 TD receptions to Heath's 1. Can't tell me that could not of made a difference in getting a couple wins to get us into the play offs.

    And J. Jones did what, one sack and then riding then bench? However he did hustle so I guess that gives him bonus points right? No it doesn't. Eifert would have done more to get this team into the play offs last than Jones and I'll go one step further and say he does more again in 2014 than Jones.

    We gave Eifert a TD on blown coverage...

    and no, he wouldn't have got us to the playoffs. Once again we see other draft picks winning games while ours lost games. Jones never rode the bench, he didnt start but he played a ton compared to most rookies on D.

    I'm not happy with JJs production but I'm not going to lie to myself to make Eifert into some beast of a TE last year who would march us into the playoffs.

    The only difference is we play 10 yds off on the corners and one juke move or broken tackle and is a big play. Seattle man up and tackle the catch there's a difference. Two different styles.

    The difference is successful tackling...in man coverage, Seattle is one tackle away from a big play...they simply made tackles....

    Just out of curiosity, how do you judge if a CB is good or not in our defense?

    it sure seemed like most of the tackles they made had 3 or 4 defenders in on it.

    It seemed that there were very few one on one tackles, the Seattle defense was flying to the ball to minimize any YAC if the first tackle was missed. It looked like there was always 2 or 3 tacklers around the ball carrier. It would have taken more than one missed tackle to get a big play against them in the SB, IMHO.

    No one said Eifert was a "beast" what was said was that he would have made more of a positive impact to this team than Jones did if he brought those same stats. With Heath being out, Eifert could have had even better stats. We will never know but you can't in any way try to say that Jones' rookie season was a positive for this team in actual production.

    I agree... and this is why I said his snaps were a positive. At least he saw the field and we should see an improvement once he learns all the nuances of this D.

    You have far more confidence in him than I do. I see him as too lean to be able to beat the Left Tackles in this league. Maybe the weight room bulks him up, butwouldn't count on him for double digit sacks year after year.
