Does Charles deserve it? Well to me that has 2 answers. As a leader and cheerleader, the answer is yes.

As a pure player, no. He needs to step up his game and produce more. He's ok against the run. His pass rushing skills seem to have diminished some. He has very few sacks this year. But who on this defense has very many? No one. All these guys aren't playing to their best. Brian Young was playing very well till his injury. We'll have to wait and see how he does now. Smith isn't playing up to his ability either right now, but there might be reasons for that too. When you're the only player putting forth any kind of effort, other teams notice this and they do what it takes to neutralize you. Are they doing this to Smith, yeah, probably.

So, there are many answers to your question. All are right and all are wrong. Take your pick.

Sometimes it's better to keep your mouth shut and be thought an idiot, than to open it and remove all doubt!!!!!

Grant would make a great outside lineman in a 3 -4 defense. Our D was getting burned, and made MCCown look like Vick. Come on guys stay in your lanes and keep McCown cornered in, our D did not make any adjustments at half time or at any time in the game to truly corral McCown. MM and SF seem to be the only reason we ever got a stop on him.

Re: multi million dollar question?

I think the way to look at it is to question how this D would be without Grant and Smith. Someone else would've paid their asking price. Would we then be able to sign a DE of Grant's abilities that some are calling into question? Unlikely. Would we be able to draft another Smith? Even less likely. I agree that a couple more pieces at DT and LB would free up the DEs more, and some more heat would mask our shaky secondary.

Re: multi million dollar question?

I agree that Smith, Hollis and Grant would be excellent in a 3 - 4 scheme, but that entails going out and finding 3 other LB's who can actually run and tackle besides Fujita. God I hate Simenoux. He is just useless. Did you see two guys block Fujita on that run around the edge and Simenoux just stand there watching as the RB went around them. He sucks so hard.

I for one think that Simmons could be a good OLB in a 3-4 scheme and Fujita could do pretty well as a ILB. Simoneaux blows hard and must have pictures of Gibbs and Peyton naked with farm animals.

Actually with Gibbs he seems so clueless with the personnel he has and the scheme that he thinks they can play that he may think Simoneaux is good.

Re: multi million dollar question?

Ok, guys I've been letting some of this language slide, but if it keeps up look for me to start editing your posts. I think you know what i'm talking about. If you can't find a way to say someone isn't very good other than the way you're saying it pm me and i'll help you out. This stuff is just not needed.
