Wentz has a knack for making big plays after he makes a mistake, that is incredible

Best pass of the season.

You are spot on.....beautiful.

Nice to see it was Hollins.

Give them something else to worry about.

Posted by: El Cubano Oct 23 2017, 09:13 PM

I was gonna make a post about it myself...

But MACK FUCKING HOLLINS!!!

He has a long ways to go, but THAT was a great way to start earning the #10 on offense.

This kid has only been targeted 6 times...and has six receptions, five first downs and a TD.
I do believe that if Torrey Smith does not get red hot in the second half of this season, this kid could be a starter next year.

Mack just looks so smooth, both running and the way he brings in a ball. I cannot start another bandwagon. I'm only licensed for 3 wagons at a time. Who wants to take over this one?

Who are your three licenses for?

Posted by: Pila Oct 26 2017, 07:13 PM

1. Nelson Agholor
2. Carson Went
3. Vaitai

That's right, I said Vaitai. Still a lot of room in this motherfucker.

Posted by: Joegrane Oct 26 2017, 07:15 PM

You think Vaitai will get bigger, bulk up over time?

Yeah. By the end of the season he'll be the Incredible Hulk.

What kind of fucking stupid question is that?

You wrote the following, specifically, "a lot of room" and I was looking for clarification. I thought you might know something about Big V's body type or something else about him that most of us don't. Apparently you like his upside, correct?

I think Pila meant there was a lot of room on the Vaitai bandwagon.

Joe is the best. I often wonder what 1840's barn he grew up in. biggrin.gif

It's a big wagon! I'm anticipating there's gonna be a lot of late fuckers wanting a ride by the end of the season.

Count me in for the Vaitai wagon.

Out of the 3 that's the one you decided to jump on in its route debut? Fine, I'll let you in. tongue.gif

Bring a single malt.

Posted by: Joegrane Oct 27 2017, 11:00 PM

Do you like Big V as the future R OT or just as a high-quality backup OT?

We're all on the Wentz wagon.

I'll add Smallwood for my third although it feels weird not to have anyone from the defence.

And Talisker it is.

For this season Vaitai is playing LT to minimise disruption. Much will depend on how he gets on in an extended but high risk audition.

If he plays well, then he can be our future LT.

If he is average, then the offseason would be the time to move Johnson to LT and have Vaitai at RT.

If he struggles, then we have a major problem unless Peters will be fit for the start of the 2018 season.

I've heard that Peters will likely miss at least some training camp time if not part of next season due to the severity of his injury. sad.gif

Considering Peter's age, I think he may be done.

Posted by: Joegrane Oct 28 2017, 08:31 AM

maybe better to loose weight and move to OG

Per the game tape review folk, Big V holds his own in pass pro but struggles in run block.

I think he could improve in run blocking, his 'struggle' is more about not quite knowing how to engage guys on the second level. Like Sproles is sharing texts with Barner giving him tips on the teams he is about to face, I am thinking old man Peters will keep in touch with Big V in a similar way. Hell, he was coaching up the kid from the cart before they wheeled him out of the stadium.
