Don't know if this is already posted but here is a positive from yesterday
Pressures may be nice but he needs to collect some sacks and make some game changing plays. Hopefully those things will come.
I noticed him a couple of times. one time he would have got what looked like a strip sack but barely missed bress' arm.
Alright...we're celebrating pressures from the 1st round pick. Awesome stuff.
Meanwhile 18 other rookies in the NFL have half a sack or more after 4 games.
The way the team's been playing we are looking for any signs of life brother Truth
The ghost of SoS says you're moron for thinking that.
Lol just kidding. I have no idea, really. Sounds good though. I stopped watching at halftime.
I want a guy who shows up in big spots and make big plays, game-changing plays. He was invisible.
Who's Charles Harris?
he is showing improvement you guys expect a pro bowler week 1 for his rookie season? I don't even hear about any other Rookie DE to be honest doing anything.
We also have at least 3 people ahead of him on the depth chart.
Then why waste a first round pick on a guy who is, at best, a situational player during his rookie season?
I liked the pick at first but damn rook, show something.
He popped off the screen several times on Sunday . . . A clear bright spot from what was a dismal mess and yet people want to downplay it despite him being behind 3 quality veteran DEs.
I am not gonna sit here and say I know for sure if he'll end up being a great player in the NFL, what I do know is Miami absolutely got the position correct, even in a more limited role his rookie season.
In fact Miami did damn good in this draft addressing the defense, which in case you haven't been watching (I wouldn't blame you) is quite a bit improved and all the first 5 defensive draft picks, save Mcmillan who was gonna start, are making impacts.
Try to take some positive out of a rocky start to the season, a million other threads out there you can contemplate your "love" for the team in.
Give the kid a chance to be great....I think he could be a potential star in the future.
Ill take the slow roast if it means long term results (hopefully).
Harris is the kind of guy that can explode for 2-3 sacks a game. Give him time to adjust and get stronger. Its only been 3 games in his pro career. lol.
I keep watching TJ play and shake me head.
He is a rookie. We have enough other problems to focus on without hyper analysing the rookies
He went for a strip sack that would have been a sack had he went just for that. And I am 100% fine with that. This defense has created zero turnovers in 3 games. Credit him for beating his man and almost making a great play. I noticed him more this week. He's coming along.
People on FH have had an agenda to label him a bust from the start, and that's obvious. Those of us who are realistic knew he was a bit of a project that would take time to develop.
I still expect an impactful turn for him somewhere around mid season.
T.J. is playing in a scheme that is tailor made for the type of player he is. He'd of struggled mightily here, IMO
IDK man I hear that all the time as justification for the lack of the pick but the kid looks every bit a freak as his brother and that type of athletic ability transcends scheme and coaching.
I like him. Don't get me wrong. It's our defensive scheme that I don't like one bit.
Significant strides in awareness made this last game. Football iq showing up.
Got to rush mostly on the edge vs the left tackle. Came home with a top grade for Miami.
Very good game
Sadly the defense is the least of the problems right now. Honestly if Miami had an offense that could muster a first down the D might have limited both the Jets and Saints to one less fewer scores which would have them right there in terms of scoring D. Even if you coincide 3 less points in the Jets and Saints game if the offense decides to take the field that is 17.6 ppg. That's not bad at all for a bend don't break D.
If your offense can't score 19 points a game in this NFL it's total garbage. Miami Offense 8.3ppg (lmfao) next closest team the Giants and Ravens at 15ppg. Just terrible.
I believe he's coming along. Have to give him some time. Tank played a good first game and the two rookie DT's have been pretty good too. Just wish MaCmillan hadn't been lost for the season but those are 5 young guys that can help our defense get better. Now if the offense could get their act together it'd be nice
I've been skeptical of Harris so far, but you absolutely can't declare him a bust after 3 games. Especially not when he seems to be getting better right in front of our eyes.
The best thing you can say is he looked like a man with a plan in that game.
I guarantee you the coaches are happy with that game tape from harris.
That left tackle he faced is a rookie but he can play
Yeah, I am still critical of the pick, but he's showing more dog Vs the run, plus the pass rush ability he showed in college is starting to translate.
On balance I think Tankersley also did pretty well, considering. There's a lot to work with there and this supposed softness in the tackle certainly wasn't there.
Well we have a potential HOF playing opposite with only 1 sack. Hard to show up when the ball is out 2 seconds or under
For those of you that seem to want to see results right away from a Rookie, well some players take a little longer to make an impact, and let us not forget it's been just 3 games, give him some time.
The NY Giants a while back had this rookie with some skills, but was not progressing quick enough for them to keep, so they let him go, his name was Cameron Wake...Think they would show some patience this time around, if they were to get a 2nd chance?
I was very impressed when I say that play. Harris completely whooped the LT in 2 seconds; that's the type of flash I want to see, I could care less about hustle plays.
Didn’t see this posted...Halfway through Q2 there were offsetting penalties including an offensive holding call on New Orleans. They put the camera on Hayes after the play but it was Harris that drew the flag, splitting a double team on the left side. A real nice rush by Harris.
Be patient folks. I thought he had a lot of game on Sunday.
I didn't see that play before. Very impressive. Anyone who can do that has me laying off for at least a year.
The only bright spot this year so far has been the draft.
Apperantly Harris ate his Wheaties before the Saints game. Because he sure looked different than in the previous 8-10 weeks. To be honest he looked like a total bust, before the Last week. If he can continue to improve and build on his last performance Miami may have something? I’m still not a fan of Harris, but do realize he’s still on a learning curve. If he somehow improves in the same manner as Vernon did, than he’ll become exactly what Vernon became in his last 2 years before leaving. And that is fine by me, because that would mean, he’s become a more complete player. Keep up the good work Charles!!!
Fixed that for you. lol, I hope not!
This really is an excellent tape for Charles Harris. Play speed looks much better. He's explosive on this tape no doubt about it and it's sustained across the game explosion.
Doesn't matter what he was doing he was doing it with high level play speed.
Going to be a tough task this week. We are facing the best tackle tandem in football.
Cameron wake got cut before he ever practiced with NYG
DEs never do much as rookies. Look at JJ Watt 5.5 sacks as a rookie. Patience
Another week of being consistently disruptive.
He appeared today. Consistent improvement? I'll take it.
I'm sold. This kid can play.
