Shouldn't the option "3" for sacks be "3+"?

He'll be so good that if he plays two relatively meaningless years in Denver at the very end of his career, Knowhowtomow will be pimping him for the HOF in 2035.

I expect him to make an immediate impact. I beleive he will shore up the secondary and become a team leader on defense. Within in 2 or 3 years, he will make a name for himself....

Yes but seriously, I don't think he has a chance to get more than 3 sacks.

I expect 60-70 tackles due to clean up crew for our swiss cheese front seven, 4 interceptions because he is a ballhawk, no sacks because the Chiefs are to pressure as GoChiefs is to pussy (we gets none, for you ratards out there), and 2 fumbles just cuz I said so.. Suck it!

50-60 tackles
4 picks
0 sacks
3 FF




But then after his rookie year.... :fire: Can't wait. If he's anything like Ed Reed or Troy Polamalu, I will be sterile by his 5th year from all the JIMP I'll be doing.




Edit: No homo of course.

To me, it has nothing to do with where I set the bar statistically.

When he is put in position to change a game, he should take advantage of those responsibilities as that high of a pick. If someone tests him in coverage, he should burn them by taking the ball away/making the receiver pay dearly for catching the ball. If offenses try to run at him, he should not miss tackles and always be going for the rip/strip. If he is only blocked by a back or end on a blitz, he should find a way to beat it and force a rushed throw/int/sack.

He needs to be a game changing playmaker. Sometimes that doesn't show up on the stat sheet, but is clearly evident watching the games.

I just hope they use him properly. I really hope they don't let weak fellow safeties dictate where they use him. That would be utterly moronic. You play your best players to their strengths - not to cover up others' weaknesses.

Unlike a lot of people I'm patient, but I expect him to be mentioned in the same sentence as Polamalu after 2 full seasons. A year of development as a rookie and then a year of playing to his talent and potential after that. Year 3 onwards should see him at or near the top of the list for an All-Pro berth.

That's just the way it is. Young guys at other positions take longer to develop but a safety with Berry's talent really shouldn't take long. That should be the expectation of a guy who comes along one or twice a decade like Berry. I'd be surprised if anyone in the next 5 years comes out and goes as high as Berry and/or is regarded as highly.

I have slightly higher hopes for his first year. Get burned a few times but make some plays that he has the talent for. I expect this defense to get better this year and next. Berry hopefully will be our star in his 2nd season. Experience is what he needs IMO.

This.

My expectations are that he's used to the best of HIS abilities, and not used to mask problems at the position - and that he's on the field all 16 games and is able to learn as much as possible.

I'm not worried about his stats. I just want him to gain as much experience as possible and use that to build on in the future.

We don't need Eric Berry to be a stud in 2010. We need him to be a stud for years to come.

Fuck the stats.

I'll be happy if he reduces the number of huge plays we give up.

That's all I'm looking for. I don't expect the pass rush to generate enough heat to give him the chance to pick off as many as five balls.

Same here. I agree with this. Less big plays allowed because Berry is so versatile and can cover ground much faster than Mike Brown.

06-26-2010, 03:34 PM
I think Berry will be in the box most of the time or have to come up and stop the run a lot because our crappy same front 7 will still get blown off the ball giving up 4-5 yards a run and the usual big career day 70 yard run a game we have seen for the past 3/4 years.

I expect he has a lot of tackles because of it and gives a strong run for DROY because of his padded stats of playing on a bad team.

That game was a mixture of Mo Leggett and Mike Brown sucking ass in not only coverage but also tackling. Thankfully we addressed both of those positions by adding Berry in place of Brown and Arenas in place of Leggett. If we played that game over again right now under those circumstances we would have won pretty easily.

People think and want Berry to be like Ed Reed and Troy Polamalu

Reed made his name under Rex Ryan and Polamalu under Dick Lebeau.

One should ascertain whether there is anything unique about those schemes that allows those guys to excel and whether Berry will have the same opportunities under Crennel.

Crennels scheme is predicated on evaluating what the opposing offense wants to do and take away those things thus making them beat you doing things they are uncomfortable doing. The way a lot of teams want to be able to pass on us, I think Berry will play a massive role in taking away opposing teams #1 and #2 options week in and week out and will become a star doing so.

JMEO (just my educated opinion)

He should be a lot more like Ed Reed rather than Polamalu because Troy is basically a free lancer (that is literally his job in the scheme) and Ed Reed generally has more responsibility within the framework of the defense.
