Lol then why isn’t he getting away from people on his highlight film? The one thing that should pop off on somebody’s film is if they can get away from people and guess what he’s not doing? So his coaches have film of him breaking away from people but didn’t put it on his film?Yes, Rosemy can get away from people. I've seen him do it. Look, some guys aren't built to be great route runners. Canion is one of those guys. He can't change direction well enough. Also, aside from straight line speed, how is Canion a better athlete? His 40 time may bring up his Sparq rating but as Lance's study shows that has nothing to do with wide receiver success. Look at what Edelman did last night. It's not about speed, its about route running, change of direction, and hands. 3 areas where Canion struggles. As for blocking, Dugans emphasized blocking excessively. Cager still couldn't block. I don't think that it was because of coaching or not wanting to, I think it is because some guys are just too tall and they can't get the proper leverage. I think Canion is the same way. Finally, you are now the second person today to bring up my age. I'm 19. No, I'm not old. So what? Saying I don't know because of my age is weak.
Lance can use metrics all he wants but it doesn’t change that speed = big plays and length is always something you want. I can also tell you didn’t watch any of their film if you think Canion has straight line speed.
Julian Edelman proves you right...last time I checked Julz didn’t run a 4.84. He ran 4.52.
Maybe speed does matter a bit.
