Speed of a WR and the size of an OLB/SS I like what I saw. The guy was flying around the ball. Between him and Burfict we could be onto something.

Anyone else see Burfict leap to get the ball carrier out of bounds yesterday? He showed incredible burst to be running and then lunging about 3-5 feet away from the guy and shoving him out of bounds. Man I love that kid.

Flew like a missile when he completely didn't have to. Was sweet.

Default Re: Lamur

he played lights out for his first game, couple of thoughts on him..

1. Way better in pass coverage than Rey or Manny

2. Great length and speed

3. Played with high energy which we need out of LB'ers

4. was roled into a safety spot on the second TNewman interception

5. as shot in the arm this D needs

Speed was the thing that stood out to me; especially in pass coverage. Lemur, Moch, and Burfict may be a viable combo in the last weeks of the season.

If he did a good job on that play, he would've lept 7 yards or so sooner for a loss/little gain, instead of giving up 10 and a first down

Kind of like that play where Rey could of tackled the RB in the open field and forced a 4th down, but instead completely missed?

The sad part in all this was that this guy was on our Practice Squad with Maualuga stinking up the place, Lawson being HORRID, and Howard on IR.

How in the world do the coaches not recognize his ability? How do you keep a guy like this on the practice squad?

This speaks volumes of how the good players don't start and the bad ones do.

Binns and Tate should be on the practice squad. Whalen, Sanu, and Jones should be starting.

Peerman should be at least given one damn carry. Give him a series or a game and let him prove himself.

Mays might as well start. He probably wouldn't give up 2 TDs tripping over think air like Crocker has.

Can we let Kirkpatrick start over Newman? This kid is the future. Newman next year will be forgotten just like Zimmer's last reclamation project - Roy Williams.

Why was Robinson pulled? Other than injury - I think he should have remained in the game. Faine is horrible. Robinson is bad but he is learning. Put in the guy on the upswing rather than the guy on the downswing.

No against the Broncos. It was 3rd and 4 or so on the Bengals side of the field. Manning threw to the ball to a RB (I think) on the left side of the field and Rey was over there and just flat out missed. I would get more specific, but I don't feel like downloading the game.

Rey played better this game, but he is still a major liability out there, especially in coverage.

3rd and 5 at DEN 28 (Shotgun) P.Manning pass short left to W.McGahee to DEN 38 for 10 yards (L.Hall). PENALTY on DEN-E.Decker, Offensive Pass Interference, 10 yards, enforced at DEN 28 - No Play.

Was that the play you were talking about?

Describing that, that seems to be where he fell on his *** after being juked to death. We stopped him for a 4th and 1 though...

I don't think Maualuga is a good open field tackler at all. I don't think he is a good tackler - period. Something you think a MLB would have to have. He is bad in coverage as well.

I don't understand why he is still starting. Burfict to MLB. Lamur to WLB. And have Lawson, Maualuga, and and Skuta fight it out for SLB.

Default Re: Welcome to the roster Emmanuel

Given the other thread talking about brandon joiner I looked him up, he was 6'3, 245lbs, gotta figure he's bulked up some in prison. His earliest parole was 6 months and that would be at the end of this month, so no where near enough time to learn the playbook. But IF the coaches decide to go with Lamur at WLB and Burfict at MLB, one has to wonder if Joiner is going to be the SAM. If the other two prove they can do it, and we really are just missing a SAM, the kid is the right size and was a potential first rounder, so it's possible the bengals have their starting linebackers for next year.

Of course, that would also mean we would be going with 3 UFA as our starting linebackers, although Burfict seems to be working out pretty well. We'll see if Lamur continues to impress.

Default PFF Quote (Lamur)

Quote:
Linebacker Emmanuel Lamur, in just eight snaps in coverage, managed to do something neither Vontaze Burfict or Rey Maualgua have been able to do in 130 combined snaps the last two weeks; stop a ball being completed.
I still have high hopes for Burfict, rookie's get that.. But Maualuga grrr lol

I was impressed by Lamur last game though, seemed to cover well.

Due to the loss i had forgotten all positives but lets be happy lamur looked good..

Lamur was definitely a positive on Sunday. I think this is the way LBs are going...light, agile, able to cover.

If he fits scheme-wise, Alec Ogletree would be a great asset to the team, assuming he comes out this year!

We generally don't like the smaller linebackers, but Lamur made Lawson look worse than he already has looked.

Maualuga has gotten down to 250 lbs from 265 lbs. Burfict is down to 250 lbs.

I think the ideology of larger LBs is starting to fade towards leaner, quicker, faster LBs.

Even Ray Lewis lost a bunch of weight.

I wouldn't mind seeing Lamur and Burfict on the field all the time. I did notice Lamur and Burfict were in for nickle sets which was nice. It would be nice if we found two starting LB's as UDFAs. Going forward I would like to draft a OLB high and move Burfict inside in the off season. I think ,while they would be young, they could be a very talented group going forward.

This is beacuase the NFL is a pass heavy league now so the LBs don't need to be so stout against bruising RBs and more able to run with TEs and WRs.
