Lawrence Okoye Thread of Epic Awesomeness

LOL...watched his few snaps. Not bad, trying to engaged and contain edge (lined up outside and inside)...LOVED his speed/hustle on the Skuta sack though. Got shoved back by two OL (happened to all our DL this game as well esp. cold). He's just "thinking." Let's see him build off it now...more snaps...more "react."


did he have his hands on the ground? Maybe if he rushed from standing it would be easier for him? I hope he gets more reps this game

Good question...outside, he stood up ala Justin Smith. Inside, he had his hand in the dirt. He will...sounds like they have a plan in place for him and this next game he'll get more snaps and a few chances to rush even. We'll see...
I would think that it is easier to rush with his hand on the ground. Standing up helps with reading pass or run though.

*My experience in rushing the passer consists of counting alligators.
He will stick around because he taught the team how to Doggie.

today, he looked like an high school freshman player playing his rookie season. i'm starting to wonder if he'll even get signed to the PS.
Did he even play tonight in KC?

He played about 4 downs from what I could tell. He looked somewhat improved from last week but still struggles locating the ball. Physically he held his own. He never looked like he was shoved back or losing control. However, his burst off the line was SLOW, which could be explained with nerves. The game definitely appeared to be moving faster than him. I'd put him on the PS at this point... and thats being generous. If it wasnt for his potential he'd be a for sure cut.

Did he push back against pressure? That would be a step forward.

Is he scrimmaging in practice, or mostly doing drills?
^^^ Not true at all.

He came in @ the 9:27 mark of the 4Q. He played RDE and only got 3 snaps. The first he drove his OT 7 yards and led to a knock-down pass for our #64. The next one he pushed his guy back 5 yards. The final play he pushed up 3 yards and slanted right with the play. He seemed to have much better leverage this game and force off the LOS and he certainly seemed to have his eyes on the ball. Sadly. after that, Daniels had the long TD drive and in the 2 minute defense, Fangio didn't have him out there. So even though he came in earlier, he only got one series.
