Just curious if he is still considered a deep threat.
2005 Scouting Report - Scouts Inc.
Grade: 72 | Key
Explodes off the line and has the initial quickness to drive defenders back. Changes directions well, accelerates out of cuts and is a crisp short-to-intermediate route runner at times. Shows good awareness, has good body control and does a nice job of getting two feet in when catching balls near the sideline. Shows a second gear in the open field, has the elusiveness to make multiple defenders miss and he's a homerun threat after the catch. Doesn't have great bulk, doesn't have the frame to shield defenders from the ball and physical corners will have some success muscling him out of routes. Lacks ideal diagnose skills and fails to locate the soft spots in zone coverage too much for a player with his experience. Overall, Price has the burst, speed and athletic ability to provide some big plays but he doesn't always make the easy catch and he is undersized.
I'm going to step aside and let Nors take this one. Seriously though, Peerless made a living going deep. I don't think anything has changed. One reason why I believe Peerless struggled in Atlanta was because they ran a West Coast Offense. That is not a tailored offense for guys who are good at stretching the field.
And not only that, but Price sounds just like another Glenn, just a little younger.
A little younger, with much less body control, elevation, and nowhere near the hands.
Not as fast, not as diverse, not as intelligent, not as willing to block, and with nowhere near the ability to separate.
I think you are basing this off his stint in Atlanta and their West Coast Offense. I do like Terry better, but if we do sign Peerless, we'll see first hand if it was the WCO run by a "run first" QB who still has problems reading defenses and making accurate throws or if it is all those things you just listed about Peerless.
I don't think Price's intelligence has ever come under scrutiny or his ability to seperate.
If the stats are a wash I guess the tiebreaker is durability.
:sshhh: Not so loud. :
Yup, we'll see how much was Vick and the wco,
and how much dropsies, fear of contact, sloppy route running, lack of separation, and 'I hate ya'll" 'tude.
:laugh2: Touche LTN!
Its great news Price can press Glenn and Key for playing time.
All good for the team if injuries happen...
We'll see how much he presses them from Philly.
Price might be an okay pickup, but come on, he's not as good as Glenn. He's not even as good as Crayton, most likely.
What's funny is, I don't remember him coming out of Tennessee as some great speed demon. Nice receiver, but far from a tremendous athlete. I don't know why people think he is one now, after seven years in the league.
I want the guy even more now. there is nothing this team needs more on offense than speed. Morgan was supposed to do that, but he can't catch. No one will respect that.
Should be interesting.
The more I think about Price, the more I like the idea of signing him. I gotta admit, that having Price and Glenn outside and Keyshawn in the slot would be pretty awesome!
Suddenly, the Iggles defense doesn't look so formidable.
From Philly? Not sure what you are getting at. The actual game when we play Philly if Peerless is on the team? Or Peerless playing in Philly? Because I thought McCants just recently signed with the Iggles.
Price was a track demon at Tennessee. Ran a 6.52 in the 55 meter sprint at the SEC Championships.
And Price's "failure" and attitude problems at Atlanta have been a heck of a lot better than Terry Glenn's situation the final year with New England and his stint with Green Bay. So let's not completely throw away everything a player has done based on one bad situation.
He may not be as good as he was during his 95 catch, 1250 yard season at Buffalo, but he's also not nearly as bad as he was last year. I don't think its mere coincidence that his two highest reception totals for the season came in the two games Schaub filled in for Vick.
Very good points. I'm sure Terry had a little "I hate y'all!" in him too. But bottomline, I just want more weapons for Drew Bledsoe which translates to more headaches for opposing defensive coordinators and their defense.
I would definitely welcome Price, faults and all. Perhaps Bill will be really good for him. Just like he is good for Key, and good for Terry.
He had reason to hate the FO in NE...like losing 12. 5 mil in signing bonus.
Whereas Price robbed the Falcs blind for roughly the same amount.
Thanks IR, I didn't remember that, but then I wasn't hugely into college football at that time.
