Re: Golston at DE?

If we draft a DT, I see no problem in Keeping golston as a DT. He can come in in certain situations like 5-3 or 5-2 goalline/short yardage. We can also plug him in there on passing downs as a rusher and in the process keep the other DT's fresh. Moving him to DE would be a last ditch effort if we absolutely have no one else to play the position (i.e. injuries).

Re: Golston at DE?

ultimately, let's hope that he doesn't have to play DE, that would mean we've got enough help there. We're gonna have to get somebody new to not only crack the roster but earn some pt, rookie of free agent.

Re: Golston at DE?

GW likes to rotate is lineman...Golston is an ideal 3rd DT in the rotation.

Re: Golston at DE?

This isn't HS football. People don't just go switching positions like you change your underwear. Goldston isn't going to DE. He showed flashes last year so I see no reason for him to move to DE. Someone close this thread down.

We have two players in the defensive line rotation who have on ocasion played both tackle & end in the person of Wynn and Evans. I'm not that much in favor of moving Golston to end, but I am in favor of doing something to improve a weak psss rush.

Re: Golston at DE?

Sure we can move Golston to DE if you want a slower, heavier, Phillip Daniels playing there, oh and not to mention i'm sure Golston doesn't have great pass rushing skills either.

Re: Golston at DE?

This was a very random suggestion. How about we draft the best DE in the draft and go with that

Re: Golston at DE?

He's as good a fit at DE as he is at CB. Hell let's trade Campbell and put Golston at QB.

Bad idea.

Don't confuse the two positions becuase they are so close together. They do vastly different things and require vastly different types of athletic skill.

This is spot on. So many football 'experts', who are only 'experts' because they split time in HS. think that switching positions is normal. It is not. In the NFL it takes a certain set of skills and a certain body type to play each position. Simply being a good athlete is not good enough. THEY ARE ALL GOOD ATHLETES. A guy who can play DT in HS can probably play just as well at DE in HS. A guy who can play DT in the NFL would look a lot closer to me playing DE in the NFL. For the most part.
