Re: Will Alabama's Cody be a mountain of a bust?

You know, maybe I'm in the minority here, but I don't see the all-out need for a DT on our team. Here's hoping that Ellis stays healthy this year and has his best year yet.

Let's go out on a limb and say that happens ... is it necessary to have another god at DT beside him? Last time I checked, Ellis wasn't that bad against the run, right?

When Warren Sapp, John Randle or even LaRoi Glover were in their hey-days, their teams didn't need to have another great DT beside them. Just needed to have a solid guy in there who could be relied upon to play the position properly and fill the right gap. I think we might be in an okay spot - Ayodele and Pressley still have some upside and maybe one of them will fill this role properly for us. Or maybe Clancy can come back and has something in the tank left.

And besides, when did getting 2 great DT's guarantee major success? Remember Jacksonville of a few years ago - great run-stuffing team ... but did it really matter? Did it really get them anywhere? Good teams find a way to move the ball against the Vikes and the Williams Wall - us included. Is it that that important to load up at DT?

It seems that he is trying to get his weight in line, but I still don't see him as the type of DT that GW can mold. It looks like he's already broken the mold.

Re: Will Alabama's Cody be a mountain of a bust?

I think there is a need at DT on this team, but not for Cody.

Trust the NFL scouts, not Canton and his wildly unfounded comments. He is "before his time" and "will be dominant...regardless of how much he weighs"? Really? Most everything I've read is that he's a huge man who fits as a nose tackle in a 3-4 defense and that there are serious concerns about conditioning, ability to stay healthy, and quickness. And I'd be cautious about touting him as a great college player. He was a 2X All-American, but I honestly think that's solely because he's circus freak big. In 2008 he had 24 tackles and half a sack. That's All-American worthy? Really? In 2009, he had 28 tackles. He doesn't have great production, doesn't play many plays, has weight issues, injury concerns, speed/agility concerns.... get the picture? This would be one of the worst picks ever.

Cody doesn't fit in the defensive system in New Orleans. Then again, he doesn't quite fit in his uniform, either.

lol lookin at stats for DTs again? i guarantee mcclain gets drafted in the first....but it definitly isnt because he made plays.....mcclain had a solid year because of cody

instead of looking at codys stats....look at the LBs stats

he impacts every play regardless of whether he makes the tackle or not

serious concerns about conditioning? he gets mauled by 2 men every play that average about 300 lbs......you expect him not to get winded when he is beating up 2 guys that are over 300 lbs every single play?

the defensive system last year was......letting everybody run all over us

our pass defense suffered because of injury....our run defense suffered because of personel.....we play in possibly the only conference left in football where most of the teams are run first teams

cody provides a huge need not only as a run stopper, but also taking on blockers to free up blitzers

why doesnt he fit the system? we blitz a lot....cody keeps blockers off of our blitzers......we struggle against the run....cody stops the run up the middle

im worried that you guys have no idea what our defense needs
