Re: Defensive line..Stop the man crushes..

I think it is too late to start saying that players in the d-line need to go. As many have said here, the only person in danger of not making the team is Wilson (b/c of injuries I think). That being said, I think we have a solid line with Carter, Griffin, Montgomery/Golston, and Jason Taylor. Griff may have a year or two left in him, and that may be enough to develop both Montgomery and Golston into starters (I mean both of them, now they are both competiting for one starting spot). Erasmus James is pretty young compared to AC and JT, so if he stays healthy, he's going to learn a lot from two veteran DEs and could be a starter in the future. If healthy, the D-Line and the backups that we have could be a formidable force this season. I think in the next offseason is when the team should inject some youth into the d-line by drafting a DE and/or DT in the early rounds.

Wow... what a pointless end to a pointless train of thought. Your entire opinion can be summarized in two sentences: We need a better rush from the D-Line. Some of the D-Line, Griffin in particular, are older players who should be released to make room for younger players (I still haven't read anything justifying the assertion that there were "man-crushes" for D-Line players.).

"Time will tell"?? Time will tell what? That you have made some half-assed observation that you mistakenly believed was insightful?

<sigh> I feel dirty for having wasted my time on this.

I really have no words. I walk away from this thread having lost brain cells just for reading it.

Marcus is totally healthy this year and way up on himself (in a good way), which is so important for a guy who plays w/ tons of emotion. Fletcher is just steady all around. Rocky will be very "smart" this season and surprise us. This defense is going to fly. My only concern is Landry's health in the short-run. His absence in the season opener will severely limit what Blache can do.
That bolded part is the big one, and Rocky is also a year further along in his development. So we have that going for us.

Fletcher has been steady, but his ability to dominate a football game is in decline. Blache should help him out by not having him run the field in the cover two like Grilliams had him doing last year, but I do expect him to struggle in pass coverage this year.

I'm pulling for Wilson...but he needs to go nuts against the Panthers or he may just get cut.

Re: Defensive line..Stop the man crushes..

I am the original Chris Wilson fan - but it seems to me that he just isn't generating the buzz necessary to stay employed.

Re: Defensive line..Stop the man crushes..

It is not beyond the realm of speculation that the Skins may pick up a DT vet after the first cuts if there is anyone of value (of course LB is more likely)

That remains legendary

I think there is still a small sliver of hope for Wilson. Unfortunately-or fortunately, depending on how you look at it-Wilson hasn't really improved from last season and we got better in his position the last few months.

NO one is whining about anything. I have been called stupid and other names on this freakin board..I posted a thread out of aggravation with our D-Line. Get over it..Some people responded without insults. Some others should learn to do the same..For those that can't..you know what you can do...

man crushes (should have said holding on to players because of their experience but lack of production) might have been the wrong term. I want some sacks this year dammit..is that better (JT, AC & DBs excluded)..lol

You always have the choice to not read it.....I never thought I had everything figure out..But I bet some others do..I just know what I see..Our D-Line hopefully improves this year...Going back to reading what I originally posted. I was making a statement. The ill advised use of the word man-crushes refers to the coaching staff not necessarily members of the board..Now is it clear..God Bless Good Night!!

It was a poorly constructed original post. Hopefully you'll learn to make better ones in the future

Sometimes the piranhas are needed, keep things in line and prevent the site from running amok.
