Why aren't we talking more about Pat White . Didn't he more or less just ice the Steelers, or is that just my perception. Didn't Helu score because of White's previous carries. I think so. I think the Skins are just flat out better when running the offense designed for Griffin.


With Griff and Cousins Pat is still just the "other guy". While in Oakland I believe they'd be in a frenzy, cuz Pryor < White... Can we get anything for a fourth stringer? Lmao
Like you said, an offense for Griff. Pat is decent but is the odd man out for sure. I had to take a step back and realized his action is vs players who will be lucky to play in arena football, also making Helus run less impressive right?


You know it bugs me when people always say that guys are out there with defensive players who will be lucky to play in the Arena league but so is the guys that he's playing with on offense right?

To me if a guy is excelling with a certain group he should be promoted.

I think what you want to see is if he's accurate/quick and making the right decisions. For the most part Pat White playing with the 3rd team offense with 3rd team defense has played well.

What cracks me up is people fail to see two major points about our defense(this year's additions aside)

1. They improved dramatically all through last year (which is connected to my 2nd point)
2. Our defense practices against one of the best offfenses in the NFL MULTIPLE times a week!

We already are looking better in play overall. Only going to get stronger :-)

Don't try to over analyze my post or put words in my.mouth. he is a fourth stringer here fora reason... Elsewhere different story. Hopefully we stash him on the PS, but the fact is I'd rather have Sky Dawson (someone who would actually dress up and see the field) over Pat never playing. As for the third steamers he's also had some help from Paulson and Helu to help bolster the "look" of his play. He's decent, not great, and that's why he is where he is. His passing skills leave a LOT to be desired hence the 4th string title.

Is White even eligible for the practice squad?

Lewis

If not picked up by another team, Skye Dawson probably makes the PS. I really do think that they intend to use Paul to return kickoffs which is just weird b/c he's so damn big (6'1, 233).


Since we are likely keeping 4 Tight Ends, it would be tough to keep 6 wide receivers.

Well my reply was mostly in general cause I hear it often...but you did prompt me to think about it. My point is if he is a 4th stringer and excelling with the 4th string competition then he should get a shot at 3rd string and so on until he no longer excels. That is all I'm saying. Helu and Paulson? If your talking about Paulson's one hand catch then it isnt' a good example because thats his job to catch the ball. Helu's td run was great and props to him but also Pat White's two successful read option runs prior helped set that up for Helu to have more spacing in the middle for that run.

I'm just going by what my OWN eyes see and not what reporters have been bashing him about during training camp. Considering he's in his first year with this offense and with a great group of coaches would like to see us keep him some how and add to his development. I definitely would keep Skye Dawson over him as well. White probably isnt' eligible for the practice squad.

I don't know if you call him under the radar, but it looks like Brandon Jenkins will be an integral part of the defense this year. They have taken Ryan Kerrigan ( a Pro Bowl LB) and moved him around more to get Jenkins on the field.

FWIW a great catch doesn't make a bad throw any better. I removed the goggles after game one and didn't see anything to write home about- as far his passing skills... Like I said he's fourth string here, but maybe not elsewhere. His read options were nothing that dazzled me, particularly with who was suppose to stop him. Had he tore off a 70 yarder I'd give him more praise... I just really don't think he did anything that the average Joe blow ps qb couldn't do.
It's what ever really, our first three qbs will ensure he isn't needed which is music to my ears! When's the last time we had depth at the most important position??

True but by no means undoable. In 2012 we had 3 and 7. In 2011 we had 3 and 9 including Sellers at TE/RB.

Rex & White will get all the reps the next 2 games. White should get plenty ov reps against at least 2nd stringers.
