    Simmons and Chinn were both considered freak athletes/jack of all trades kind of guys predraft right?


    He's made some assignment mistakes. Part of it is because they are using him all over the place so he's taking on a lot.



    I actually believe we have the talent to cover for Simmons (again not down on him...thats just something I never thought I'd have to say)

    No reason he shouldnt get a 3rd of the snaps on the field. We're not so bad where he would kill us and we're not so loaded that we couldnt use that speed on the field.

    We've got Dak, Russell Wilson, Josh Allen, Cam Newton, Daniel Jones (he's athletic) coming up. Ideally the thought is Simmons speed could negate some of these mobile QBs.

    Yup. Very comparable to Simmons in terms of his athletic ability to do multiple things. Nice project at 64 for the Panthers.

    He came from a small school so it is impressive that he has come in and is playing almost 100% of snaps. He hasn't been great, but is getting some nice hands-on learning.

    Simmons needs to play SS. He could be the next A-Dub

    Man, we are talking about analyzing the play of the team, players and the actions of the front office. If you just wanna out your feet up and relax, do so. No ones stopping you.

    It's not wrong. Here is the list of 1st rounders last year with under 40 snaps played through two weeks.

    Tua Tagovailoa - QB
    Isaiah Simmons - LB
    Cesar Ruiz - OL
    Jordan Love - QB
    Jordyn Brooks - LB
    Isaiah Wilson - OL

    ...and Simmons had a negative impact in those snaps so probably why he is rated worse than players who haven't played.

    At this stage he is on the same level of UDFA project pick with nothing but negative plays.

    Is there honestly any hope? It's like Max Hall in his rookie year throwing pick 6 after 6 pick

    He hasn't had only negative plays. He's had a few negative plays and yet has been on the field for like 30 snaps. He also had some good coverage against Kittle when we played the 49ers.

    So now we’re equating Isaiah Simmons to Max Hall?

    We’re all done here.

    If you can't see the problem of a 1st round pick unable to start due to a reason. Other than injury than its hopeless

    Its not good. Although it is rather early.

    I'll just say thank goodness Kelvin Beachum is playing well at OT. Cause it seems all of the top tackles are playing solid.

    Cause if not people would really flip.


    Just like with LB. As long as Campbell keeps playing great it buys people patience.

    Well, I've read too much good about him on here from his college play and character and hard work to give up on him after two games.

    SMH!!
