this is a little confusing as it implies that jason david is a linebacker. of course, the LBs are a lesser unit without Fujita in there...

i wonder if whoever loses the bullocks-kevorkian(i know) battle could play some at corner? They'd have to be better than Thomas or Craft, right?

I think he will make the practice squad. I don't think we have the roster space to keep him active unless he can play special teams. He did look like a runaway train, so maybe he could cover kicks

Re: Well...........

He does look good but he ain't Carnivore. If it's left up to him just playing fullback, I don't see where they will keep him. There are just to many depth problems at other positions. I do like him though. I still want Pierre Thomas on this team. He did well last night on special teams.

yeah I didn't mean it like that, I meant Jason David, in particular on the MEGAscreen giving up just about any pass play the bills desired...he'd probably be solid in a zone scheme tho

And the linebackers, while they didn't have fujita, still reminded me of a wet paper bag. : (

craft and thomas, I'm completely done watching them, and I'm also getting tired of seeing McFlimsy too.

I'd like to get a better look at usama young! And maybe they should try this lineup starting at linebacker next game

Shanle, Simmons, Fujita. Simoneau just seems like he has a tough time shedding blockers!

Re: Well...........

yeah the secondary still worries me id like to see some turnovers, and some passes defended .looks like everytime the other team has an incomplete pass its cause of a bad throw or the receiver dropped it, not our defenders knocking it down

you know, Simoneau reminds me of former LSU linebacker Thomas Dunson, in that he leads the league in the "jumps on pile" category. Im all for Simmons.

Re: Well...........

part of the problem with the secondary is that we use SO MUCH MAN TO MAN. Its obvious we don't have the CB's to use that much man to man.

Re: Well...........

Just wanted to agree with an earlier post...........THANK YOU PAYTON FOR NOT GOING INTO OVERTIME!!!! I was happy with the outcome of that game, and didn't want to see someone get hurt on a meaningless OT play in a meaningless game. Good smarts for the 2nd year coach.

Doubt it. He will make the team and be our second FB. After what happened to our FB's against Cleveland last year...I doubt Payton will take any chances.
