Discussion in 'Arizona Cardinals' started by DVontel, Jun 11, 2019.
Well, Mr Worthless had 80 tackles (53 solo) and 4 sacks last season.
Pointing to an unofficial stat on a mediocre defense and a bad run defense. Very exciting.
I believe it is Reddick since he will have superior talent around him so he has an easier path to success.
One of them "breaking out" would be huge though. A lot better than just "breaking" like last year.
Neither get both off the team
Humphries because Kyler is mobile and hell improve this Oline
Humphries has a better chance to break since he's already there as a legit starter when he actually plays and Reddick a better chance to break out
I'm with K9 on this. Not sure Hump can get through 16 games even with trying to play through pain.
Not even a discussion. The question is who has the better chance.
I think Humphries has a better chance at staying healthy than Reddick does at figuring out how to play linebacker in the NFL.
Reddick is horrible, a severe and embarrassing bust of draft pick for the Cardinals. Yeah, 80 tackles last year, between the amount of time that defense was on the field, and the fact SOMEONE had to bring down the opposing offensive player I guess that is a feather in his hat.
What makes that even more sad is the realization he is only the 3rd worst 1st round pick from the Steve Keim era, with Cooper and Nkimbusty beating him out.....and Nkimbusty has had to put in quite an effort to surpass Reddick in draft bust embarrassment.

I vote neither.
Injuries and durability aside, if the light hasn't come on by year 3 for a player it likely never will. Humphries is what he is. A 5th year pro who has to be considered a bust at this point.
Reddick is entering year 3 so there's still upside there IMO.
Ok....so what objectively do you point to for metrics than?
He didnt start, what? The first 3 or 4 games?
And a 61 grade is an average grade, 70 good player, 80 really good, and so on and so forth.
I don't think anything besides real statistics are objective. Especially not rankings. Just like years where Patrick Peterson is clearly the best CB in the league but doesn't get the "ranking" because he wasn't challenged enough to fairly work into their analytics.
You could probably mention 20 1st round picks over the last 3 decades worse than Reddick. 80 tackles, 4 sacks is not embarrassing.
Hes an average player. Not good for his draft position, but not terrible either.
80 tackles and 4 sacks. That's objectively not terrible.
The argument that he is terrible or a below average player isnt backed up by what he has done lately.
"Watch the tape."
It's like Ronald McKinnon, back in the day. He may have piled up tackles, but they were 5 yards past the line of scrimmage, because he lacked the ability to really be a difference maker. I can almost guarantee that Reddick had more opportunities to "just be there and hold on," rather than being a playmaker. You need to look at more attacking plays and the kind of difference he makes when not just letting the ball come to him.
Reddick is not a good comparison to McKinnon, being a classic thumper ILB for his day while Reddick's problem is that he seems to lack instincts, can't anticipate the offense, but at least McKinnon knew where to fill the gap... he has similar physical ability of a Dansby or Washington, but it seems to stop there
