  1. Hope for late O-line grad transfer , but A overall considering this past season, and all distraction/drama. I have hated on Gus this whole season , but give him credit for signing number 11 class with the amount he had to fight through.(I know most self induced) Missed some big needs , but hopefully make due. I do not know how close we were with some guys or what class could have been. Holding this strong after this circus show this past season is impressive in my opinion. Will see what Grimes is made of with developing last years O-line talent.
  2. Well that's a bummer . More so that this was just a spit to the face and wanted to be the "big flip of the day." On the bright side , we are in good hands as far as talent at that position. I know Pickens is a one of those "freak athletes" but he is not going to make or break us.
  3. Many prayers to you and your family from mine. The man upstairs can do some pretty incredible stuff!
  4. I believe Coe already said he is coming back . Davidson still thinking about it I’m pretty sure.
  5. Just saw that myself . Lanier right up road from me . Have heard a lot about him but hasn’t really taken off in recruiting world . He won same defensive award his brother won back in the day . Either region defensive player of year or classification.(can’t remember) Wonder if this is a move to get Derrick to stick around another year. Or could be one of those diamonds in the rough. Got anything on this ? @ellitor or @WarDamnEagleWDE
  6. I watched highlight and have not seen him live, so may be very true. I’m obsessed with Gatewoods big play factor on the ground , and look forward to seeing how Nix comes in and plays. Was just speaking of Gus specific scenario he is facing . hey.. I got next season to be very successful or I’m getting fired. Even if it may hurt me in the future , all hands on deck for next season for Gus . The more options I got at that position without impacting immediate big factor positions , I’m taking. If Gus had a great year and wasn’t on hot seat. I wouldn’t wast anytime on him.
  7. If I’m Gus , and Jackson really does have us number 1, I’d 💯 offer. That position makes or breaks Gus next year. An athletic QB like that with experience is only thing that will even out our line. Again, this is if I was in Gus situation. Most options as possible to get my job back. Get him for official, offer , don’t do to much leg work .
  8. Yeah , I feel like every deep ball that was thrown (know not really everytime) Seth Williams he was coming down with it. Wish he would of had more opportunity this past year. Doesn't have the top end deep threat deep Slayton has but I trust him coming down with ball with DB running step by step with him more times than not.
  9. Again KJ proved me wrong and made up cause of his ability to read blocks. They were not built anything alike physically. Darren McFadden 6’2 223 40: 4.33 KJ 6’0 210 40:4.58 but after rookie year and made right decision, and was a beast. Go look up size , weight , for majority of every down backs in NFL and get back at me . KJ is just one of those special talents !
  10. Speaking of 06 players . My favorite .... KING DUNLAP hardly gets in lineup until senior year at Auburn. ----------Plays 8 years in the NFL starting most of his career ---------
  11. I tell you who proved me wrong was KJ. I did not think he would have declared early and thought it was a terrible decision last year based on the backs coming out and Kerryon not looking like your typical NFL back. I was amazed how well he did this year in the NFL and had one of the better rookie RB year. I ate crow on that , and was happy to do so. KJ one of those guys that won't wow you at combine but has incredible vision, and knows how to use body extremely well. Jeff Holland I know had a great year last year, but was surprised him leaving early just based on a lot of the low grades he got. Really thought another year would on benefited him from draft standpoint. Dean was the real head scratcher for this past year, until someone brought up a good point about his past injuries and those guys are on a real tight NFL timeline.
  12. What about Career?If you took Fairleys two year stat with Brown's two Year stats they are pretty much the same. In fact Brown Beats Fairley in most Statistical category besides 4 less total sacks. No one is debating how dominant Fairley was in 2010, but a bunch a variables could go in to why Brown didn't produce as much as Fairley did. You could turn around and say Fairley couldn't hold Brown's Jock Strap in there Sophomore year. Browns Measures are through the roof. Either way , hope he stays but I think he is as good as gone. Good thing is the youngsters sure did run pretty well in bowl game!
  13. I would bet on as well. To go off what you were saying , it would be interesting to compare amount of snaps between the two. 2010 our offense was booming , controlling time of possession a lot better than this year. I know we rotate pretty well , but a tired Dline is not going to be making those huge impact plays. All I can find is time of possession , could not find the actual amount of snap between the 2 to compare.
  14. I never said Brown was the player NF was in his last year. I was giving reason of why that may have been the case.
  15. Think reason for that is Fairley kinda had a breakout year his last year at Auburn.Sophomore year he had a very average year, teams did not Double team him near as much as Brown coming into his Junior year. Derrick Brown was known about and I do not have actual stats about how many times each were double teamed but Brown was double teamed A LOT this entire year. If he was left was one on one more, he would have been having a lot more games like Purdue where they left #60 one on one with him and Brown destroyed him and was in backfield almost every play. I do think Fairley had a little bit more acceleration and pass rushing abilities. Brown's has elite power, and is good at taking on those double teams. It would be interesting to compare combine stats with the two. Brown a believe weighs about 30 pound heavier 330ist(to lazy to look up) Fairley around 295-300 @Tiger Think what has scout drooling is plays like in videoat 2:49 against SEC lineman. Mute Video is has bad language . The comparison got me intrigued , so started looking up some highlights haha
