Re: Antoine Cason

James Laurinaitis is soooooo over rated. I don't think he has the speed to keep up with elite athletes in the NFL (go back and watch the NC Game against Florida, he was rendered almost completely useless). Heaven only knows that we don't need another slow white linebacker who has a "big motor."

"It's not that Laurinaitis is a bad player. He's not. He flows well sideline-to-sideline and if you don't get a blocker on him he will find you and tackle you. He's good on his zone drops, too. But what he is not is an all-conquering "animal" -- ha! -- that can destroy you by idly considering ways in which he would like your head to implode. Nor does he have hypno-toad eyes which force quarterbacks to throw the ball directly to him, copious evidence from last year be damned. But don't tell this to Brent Musberger, whose orgasmic rendition of the James Laurinaitis show in this year's Texas-Ohio State matchup established the middle linebacker as the country's best... for some reason. Never mind that Texas wasn't actually that good at running the ball last year or that Colt McCoy was still in freshman embryo mode and was reduced mostly to checkdowns and screens. By the time these facts became clear, it was too late: the legend of Laurinaitis was born.

Simply, if you get a hat on the guy he's done. Both Michigan and Florida eliminated him from their games just by blocking the guy and put up 39 and 41 points, respectively. He should improve this year, and I'd even put him on an All Big Ten second team behind true monster Dan Connor, but he is not the be all and end all of linebackers."

I am all for Cason. After watching him last night I see myself really pulling for him. However, I still want to see us get somebody like Keith Rivers or Sedrick Ellis.

Re: Antoine Cason

But Laurinaitis is a Road Warrior, Jr.. He could ride out onto the field on a chopper and paint his face and stuff, plus he has all those awesone tats.

I hate Ohio State and hope they manage to sneak back into the BCS championship just to see them get devastated by another SEC team.

Re: Antoine Cason

Cason wasn't really tested last night. AZ State will be this guy's NFL combine. He does well, we'll see him drafted ahead of the Saints or after Loomis chooses another WR.

Re: Antoine Cason

Wasn't tested? I mean I know it wasn't an SEC team, but Orgeon has one of the best offenses in the country. The guy scored two non-offensive touchdowns last night. I don't care who you're playing, that's still impressive.

Besides ASU blows. They've only played one good team (Oregon) and they lost. The two other teams they've played with a winning record are 6-4.

Without Dixon, the big O's O goes from "one of the best" to "quarterbacked by a immediate relative of Ryan Leaf". There's a big difference there.

Cason may be the shizz, though, I just like being a contrarian. I turned it off when DD's knee bent the wrong way.
