By the way, Thibodeaux is a lucky guy. All these cut blocks should be illegal. There´s so many injuries and you have guys flying to opponent´s knees.
It could have been way worse for Thibodeaux and hopefully he can be back on the field really soon.

Cut blocks suck, but s**tty technique by edge players sucks even more. Thibodeaux played it passively with s**t technique. Somebody needs to teach that kid that we use hands, hips and active feet to defeat cut blocks. I have no doubt Drake Jackson will play cut blocks better than Thibodeaux.


That game was so awesome. Bosa was unstoppable.

Did anyone catch that clip of Drake Jackson barrell roll to avoid being rolled up on by his own team mate? He looks very nimble and very agile for a big dude.

ive seen the man do a handspring into an impressive backlip

i have zero doubts about his agility and athleticism


that is just ridiculous at his size..

that is the correct use of casually too, from a physical standpoint and a mental standpoint. Think about that, most these guys are so mentally wound up just trying to make any sort of positive impact they are mentally on rails, this guy just makes a nonfootball move in a split second, while airborn... like we have not seen tons of Olympic gymnast fail a landing after years of study during planned routines.

Seriously, we have all seen Olympic gymnast fail a half twist landing, Jesus what do you think they would do if you chucked a 200+ pound human at their knees mid routine?

All these NFL players are mutants, in my opinion. How can humans that big, that strong, move that fast and make those moves! To the 99.999% of the rest of humanity, what they do is not physically possible.
These guys love some Drake. Couple of F bombs but pretty clean conversation overall.

More Jackson talk. Chapman says that he is starter level right now. Nice to hear so many people confirming what I thought I saw in the Vikes game.

Man it's sweet looking he's great in that 95 Jersey.

The athleticism is great but over and over, the reaction speed is what has me
1.5 sacks and 2 pass deflections against the bears

I say 3 sacks because I expect us to be up 33 - 2 by the end of the 3rd quarter..

Drake should not be like Armstead at Oregon with only 2 sacks while the Ducks were up 27 pts per game...

I think he sees lots of action on Sunday.

What's a lot? 10-20 snaps? Probably… Samson will play more.

Mobile QB where gap integrity is going to be paramount. I'd stick with the vet
Hope to see the rookie make some impactful plays out there today!
