From the couple of times I saw the Lions play, they guy seems to run out of gas. Conditioning is going to be real important.

That's his main problem... actually that's a lot of DT's main problem. If he can get into the 340 range, he's that big plug we need in the middle. He's still only 28 and a proven Pro Bowler. He's definitely worth consideration if he's cut... maybe even a 3rd rounder.

Re: Shuan Rogers?

Absolutely we should be interested. But that always seems to be a little tricky with the Saints, right? We can sit here and talk all we want about guys that we'd love to see in black and gold, but it just never seems like the FO is thinking the same thing as us. Rogers is a beast. If properly motivated, I think he's one of the top 3 DTs in the NFC.

Re: Shuan Rogers?

I dont like him. he is another example of a guy with rare athletic ability but cant keep his mouth shut...he is always running his mouth about his coaches, contract, or teammates...and then he is always stuffing his face and letting his weight balloon up to nearly 400 pounds. Not exactly the team oriented guy we are looking for.

Yeah ya know the more I think about it we really don't need any fat guys who struggle with weight or being in shape. We need guys are are in shape, work out and give a crap. There are teams out there that you look at there lines who are in great shape and are good. We need to get away from getting by with guys who are just fat and do well only because of there size, no one can move them. We want in shape - TALENTED guys not the ones who get by because of fat.

Re: Shuan Rogers?

Freakish athletic talent, no discipline whatsoever. He's hurt a lot, is never really in shape, and has already been slapped with a 4 week suspension for controlled substances. Plus, if we traded for him, we'd have to take his huge contract, which would be ludicrous for a part time contributer. Fat guys always have a problem with the cooking down here.
