Todd O -- He has a HUGE upside!!!! If Cox can get him going, he could turn into a MAJOR FORCE! The key will be to bring him along slowly.
JTee -- That's why I gave them a C in the draft. Hageman and Southward were guys they made big projections on. He has been hot and cold. He has to follow Tyson Jackson's lead and become a professional.
I'm with you Tommy. You can't teach toughness. You're either a badass or you're not. Joe Hawley is a badass!!! (I hope I can use badass on the chat!)
You left out Roddy White!
No. Just pointed out that Tampa Bay team won a Super Bowl and his first two picks are now in Canton. Everyone knows that was a triumvirate of McKay-Angelo-Ruskell.
Corey Peters if he's not ready to go.
He's only played a few snaps. Can he hold up over the long haul? There an issue as to why this is his fourth team, but he's a good guy and it appears he's working hard and studying in order to make the most of this opportunity.
No. I'd hired someone to do the football stuff. I'd chill in my booth with my friends!!! Good beverages and food! McKay put a Super Bowl team together and picked two Hall of Famers -- Sapp and Brooks. TD got the QB pick right and he's riding that one out. That's a hard one. I'll pass....
Antone Smith and Devonta Freeman. I like Josh Vaughan, too. He's an old-school big power back.
Eventually, if Bartu keeps missing tackles. Jacques Smith is going to get some more action this week. He's in the same spot on the depth chart released by the team.
No. The fans want to know. My job is to pass along what I know or have found out. Without the fans . . . . I'm practicing Labor Law and bored as heck.
They didn't play the 3-4. Played lots of sub and 4-3.
The O-line has improved. Hard to tell how much better they are. The interior of the D.Line looks good. Love Soliai and Jackson. Babineaux has not slowed down either.
They are going to be cautious.
There is always concern with a injury of this nature. That's why they are taking it so slowly with it. The fifth metatarsal is a wicked bone. He has special shoes and everything.
A little more for the O and maybe 2 quarters for the defense.
Coach Mike Nolan told us to keep an eye on him. He's been real stout in his new role.
20 to 25 snaps. The O will play into the second quarter. The defense may get the whole first half. We heard Smitty was ticked about that showing last week.
I think he could have a bust out season. He looks good!
Reedy appears headed for the practice squad to me. They have 5 veteran receivers. They need that 6th spot for defense. Osi Umenyiora is the designated pass rusher. They are about to start increasing his snaps so that he's ready for his third down-and-mid/long role.
Reasonable TE expectations: 40 catches, 5 TDs. Levine just looks real awkward. Shuler is coming on though. His Dad is a former Pro Bowler for the Jets.
Konz is in a battle for his career. He might get the benefit of the doubt because they don't like to cut their draft picks. Steven Jackson is going to make the team. Might as well see if he has some gas left int he tank.
