Nightly Roundup: January 11, 2019

Nate Schonle (#81)

Nate Schoenle says he’s coming back for a fifth year. He said in his Instagram post that he needed two surgeries, which explains his absence in 2019.

Schoenle isn’t a great receiver, but he’s a heck of a blocker and special teams player, so his return will be a bonus.

Also, Ambry Thomas says he’s coming back for his senior year, which is what should have been expected.

Hit the jump for more.

I appreciate this mindset coming from linebacker Charles Thomas:

Josh McCown played the last three quarters of the Eagles’ playoff game with a torn hamstring:

I agree with Field Yates:

I’m a safety proponent, but that Cody Ford block wasn’t even penalty-worthy, let alone fine-worthy. And Jadeveon Clowney clearly intended to hurt Carson Wentz, which he succeeded in doing.

      Yes, they do.

      On a side note, the Titans’ third-string running back (Dalyn Dawkins) only had 11 carries for the whole season.

    Roger Saffold played for the Super Bowl Rams in 2018 and was signed in free agency to play for the Titans in 2019. He’s currently the 4th highest paid Titan (Taylor Lewan is the highest.)

    The Rams leading rusher went from Pro Bowl and 4.9 ypc to 3.8 ypc without Saffold. Titans leading rusher made his pro bowl debut with Saffold.
    Seems like he earned his money.

    Of course it’s nice to have a couple top 15 picks and pro bowlers at tackle also. So we can’t give Saffold ALL the credit for the Titan’s run game production.

    But one thing is obvious: Left guards matter.

      The Rams entire OL has either moved on, moved around, or been injured

        You know I think you are right.

        It is never good to credit run game success to a single player.
