Didn’t Collins have a foot injury?
If so, perhaps he rebounds this year.
Davis May have been “solved” by other teams after they had a year of tape to study. Too bad his hands can’t be transplanted to Jones.
I thought that Smith hurt us most of the season, and it wasn’t just the injury. He wasn’t reading plays well. Towards the end it got better. This next year will effectively be his second year of live action. That’s often where players make their biggest improvement.
That’s the concern with Dak. After a player’s third year, they usually are the player that they will be, if they are getting playing time.
I think that Nick Foley is an interesting case of a player who had a great first year as a starter. I thought the trade for Bradford was bizarre, and Foles fell off the edge of the earth. Then his number gets called and he comes up big against a coach that can usually solve an opponent with a weak QB.
Was Foles’ major problem the fact that he ping ponged between teams? Dak’s case is different because he stayed with the same team, but I wonder How much of his second year slump was due to coaches not adjusting to Zeke’s suspension and Tron’s Injury.
Regardless, Dak’s third year will be critical to his and the team’s future.http://www.bluestartoday.com/2018/02/didnt-collins-foot-injury/Posts
