Re: Eli Apple

Crap. He was playing great. He’s always gotten a tough wrap by fans but he stepped in mid season last year and learn a totally new defense on the fly. He was an immediate upgrade over Crawley and progressed well all year. Earlier this year he was just a victim of some freak 1 in 1000 shot great catches. Coverage has been tight all year.

Re: Eli Apple

Based on how he seemed after he hurt himself and the location of the injury, a hyper extended knee is the best thing we could have possibly hoped for. We have the bye coming up, he should be back in no time. I want to see Justin Hardee get a crack at CB. I'm hoping this gives him a chance.

Probably Crawley but I would like to see Hardee too. I still donít get how Crawley went from being pretty damn good one year to just bad the next.

So long as Apple is back for Atlanta or we get a trade done.
Dont need to be having Crawley trying to cover Ridley or Sanu. Not that they are playing well

No on Hardee. He's not ready.

Crawley's lost confidence. To play the position effectively, you must be able to re group, re focus and move on to the next play.

If we do have to insert Ken, better hope the D line can get to the QB consistently because he's a holding, pass INT waiting to happen. I've never seen corner hold as much as he does when he doesn't need to.

Re: Eli Apple

Yeah, I'm with Major on Hardee; he seemed to regress even this past PreSeason; and that's too bad because he had prototype size and really jumped out athletically in coverage...

He's another guy like Dan Arnold who's learning an entirely new position at the NFL level no less - so he's got my respect and patience...

But this past PreSeason, he just seemed like he lost some of the discipline in his game that he'd showed previously...

Imagine being Crawley - to go from being one of the boys to the bottom wrung of the ladder; and then there's that whole covert, kept from main stream reporting, weird cryptic social media garbage, he's likely done...

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...
