Tua has the hip injury and there was also some rumours swirling around that Alabama had to limit their playbook because he was struggling with pro concepts. His wonderlic score of 13 suggests that may be the case.bjd5211 wrote: ↑Mon Sep 21, 2020 7:44 amWhat major flaws do Burrow and Tua have (other than Tuas injuries) that Herbert doesn't have? Herberts only advantages over them as an individual player are size and arm strength, which are both overrated/overvalued traits, and post draft he probably has the best supporting cast around him for the immediate future of the 3. Herbert was impressive and much better than expected, but he's still far behind Burrow.
Burrow has nine inch hands and had inconsistent accuracy downfield outside the numbers. He was gifted one of the best offensive lines in recent memory and had loads of skill players to work with in a one year breakout after being thoroughly mediocre in his previous season.
Finally, both of these teams have second year coaches coming off awful seasons with little prospects for turning things around this season. Flores already fired both coordinators, so the prospect of coaching turnover in Miami was very high. Taylor has more rope, but the Bengals offensive performance was awful last year due largely to awful line play... which wasn’t really addressed in the offseason. I didn’t really like the job security for either offensive coordinator going into the season.
In LA, Lynn just brought in the new coordinator, who was an internal promotion, with a rookie QB and is one year removed from a 12-4 season. I see the Chargers as having enough talent to keep Lynn and Steichen employed.
