You saw Cam Wake pancaked by a tightend?And? I've seen it happen to Wake, Taylor and Suh. This is football and that play happens all the time. What's your point?
If those traits you mentioned are a fact (I don't honestly know) then there is ONE of the issues with this team … he was drafted in the first round in 2017... ( and did we trade up for him?) what are the scouts seeing that you and others are not?... how can this team move forward with that type of evaluation for talent?.... was he, like others, misused or not a good scheme fit? … how is it we keep making bonehead moves like this one? Who holds the scouting Dept. accountable... have the scouts been replaced? I don't get it.For everyone that is hoping he does better as a stand up, 34 pass rusher, may I simply ask why you think this?? Didn't he play DE in college? He's not fast, not twitchy, and I don't see him doing very well in coverage if ever asked to do that. I don't see him standing up making him better at setting the edge or stopping the run either.. just curious. I want to have optimism for the dude but just dont at all right now..
He hasn't shown much of that, has he....Good luck with that.
This guy hasn't even "flashed" at times, leading me to believe that there isn't much there.
Hope I'm wrong, as I have nothing against the guy, but at that position, scheme doesn't have a lot to do with beating your man 1v1.
I don't know if Harris is the man or not... I do know he isn't the only player that hasn't lived up to his billing... It's easy to cherry pick a player and point out his flaws but I truly believe our issues across the board is poor leadership (coaching teaching and holding accountable) is the root cause of our issues....
How motivated can a man be when the coaches are ego maniacs and the schemes don't work day after day... week after week...season after season... If the student isn't learning then (in most cases) the teacher isn't teaching IMO... most of these players didn't get to the NFL by being a "JAG"..... they have skills and the coaches need to identify these skills (hopefully that's why the player is on a team) and scheme around the player... take advantage of their skill set... game plan with this in mind
My hope is we finally got it right with this staff and players like Harris will have an opportunity to really showcase their skill... players can "step it up" all they like but if the team is constantly breaking down around you it can wear out your "want to"...
It would be super cool if the offense could manage drives that allow the defense to rest a bit
