I wonder if he'd excel as Danny Trevathan's replacement? He has the speed and coverage ability and can certainly blitz.

I think we are going to see some serious shit out of Floyd this year. He really started gaining a lot of confidence in the last quarter of the season. When he had a healthy hand, and a healthy Mack across from him, he started to flash some real nice moves, and a really high motor. I think that with a full healthy training camp between the two of them, they are going to become quite the dynamic duo.

I never really liked Floyd he was too skinny when drafted and up till the end of the season last year (for where he was drafted) I believed he was a bust and honestly still do. I know Pace signed the option because he wants to make sure that he's not being too hasty by letting him go because of those games and what he invested in him with the draft pick.

I just don't see Floyd being any more than what he's been... Maybe Pagano will have him rush more but when you look at a guy like Mack and see all the moves, power and quickness and then watch Floyd with his one move sitting there waving his upper body back and forth 5 yards away from a QB while being stonewalled by the LT just doesn't scream 13-15 mil a year. Especially when you have Hicks, Goldman and Mack on that same line taking double and even triple teams.

Maybe I'll be proven wrong but I highly doubt it... I think it was a mistake to extend him at that price and I honestly think he won't be a Bear the following year. He hasn't shown enough and hasn't improved with his pass rush moves/technique much he's still a one trick pony IMHO.

I suppose that I still like Floyd enough. The upside he's flashed at times has been exciting and he's consistently been solid when healthy. He's a "good" player who seems like he COULD turn into something more if he could just stay healthy. The problem is that he can't do that (at least not yet in 3 seasons worth of chances) and he hasn't quite lived up to his top ten overall draft price that we bid on him at. He's a great compliment... but when the expectation is for a player to be in the elite pass rusher conversation? That's not quite cutting it.

If we cut bait with him after next season, I'll feel rather indifferent about it. I would, however, love to be the team that gets a hold of him at a good price point following his potential departure.

Reading all the discussion I went back through Floyd's stats to see if I could figure out if the lineman he most often goes against are decent.

2016

1/2 sack vs Houston - Duane Brown starting LT - downside and was traded away a season later, managed to make PB though
2 sacks against GB first game - Bahktiari starting LT Pro Bowl Season
1 sack against MN first game - TJ Clemmings - trash
1.5 sacks against TB - Donovan Smith - bad
2 sacks against SF - Joe Staley - good, had a trash QB behind him

2017

1 sack against GB first game - Bakhtiari
2 sacks against MN first game - Riley Reiff - trash
1 sack against Carolina - Matt Kalil - trash
1/2 sack against GB second game - Bakhtiari

2018

1 sack against detroit first game - Taylor Decker - trash
1 sack against giants - Nate Solder - over the hill
2 sacks against GB second game - Bakhtiari

Granted these are assumptions as he does move around but most the time he is going against the LT from the games I have watched.

He has been great against GB which is most likely Bakhtiari who is more than solid as a LT but bascially everyone except Staley has either been trash, journeyman or below average. 5.5 of his 15 sacks have come vs GB.

You could also look at it as over a 3 season career over 50 percent of his sacks have come in 4 games total.

Rodgers holds onto the ball against us because our secondary has always been suspect. I don't think Floyd has any magical pass rush move that overwhelms Bakhtiari.
