I pray that we can over come missing LL this week and haslett plays a little more 2 deep than hed like
i completely agree. i dont have much faith in doughty. yeah hes a great tackler when hes there, but hes not there much, always a few steps behind.

I like Gomes as a blitzer and for his potential. But yeah, realistically, he's a rookie who, as Blache said, will break your heart.

Re: Landry to miss opener vs Giants

The lockout undoubtedly had an affect on LL's ability to adequately rehab his AT without surgery and without the help of the team doctor and trainers. Over-compensating for his existing injury could have helped led to his now hamstring problems.

Re: Landry to miss opener vs Giants

Doughty will be fine . Unless Haselet has him lining up over the slot WR and covering him one - on - one we're fine .I would love for LL to be out there , but now the other 11 guys have to buckle their chin straps and go KO Eli !

I wouldn't say "Oft". He's been injured basically one time. That said, not sure why any of you are surpised he going to be out. I felt all along he would miss the first couple of games.

Re: Landry to miss opener vs Giants

yes, suspected this. i'm glad at least they are reporting the achilles is okay and it is something different. if it was the same injury from last year, i would be more worried.

even still, concerning that it's taken so long. bet it's going to be 3 games.

Re: Landry to miss opener vs Giants

Honestly ever since Laron effed his achilles tendon I've expected a series of injuries. I'm not writing him off just yet but Laron isn't a smart, skilled safety. He's a Roy Williams type who relies heavily on his physical dominance and is most helpful in run support. After an achilles injury players have such a tendency to favor that leg, which often leads to strains and/or injuries else where.

...I'm hoping Reed can step up big for us all year!!!

Same. Should be a good year if he needs to take a couple games off to be healthy later I'm fine with it

Did you just compare Landry to Roy Williams? :confused:

Landry works hard, and is a weight lifting machine. He's basically a LB at Strong Safety, but in our defensive scheme he's an animal and we miss him when he's not on the field.

What's so confusing about the comparison?

LL needs to get his head on straight. Till then, the comparison is warranted.

If that is the case then im all for it. However, I feel like it's going to be a long season for Laron but I definitely hope I am wrong.

People have their best years when they concentrate - LL is already off on the wrong foot. Hope he can turn this around....we could use him.

I certainly did not get the pervasive "man-love" for LL early on. He was a slouch who just happened to be a first round pick and had big biceps. He got more passes for shoddy play than anyone on our roster.

Despite the fact that I don't like LL personally, I really feel that he showed up last year and started taking the game seriously. He was indeed a "beast."

This is a contract year, so I expect great things out of him again, I also expect him to get fat and lazy after he signs. For this reason, I kind of hope he ends up signing somewhere else.

I don't hate the man, I'm just not a big fan. I get tired of his shtick.
