Kruger had me excited but he isn't producing more than any other player in his rotation.

Re: Nick Fairley becoming a solid pickup

Kruger is probably at this point in his career a situational pass rusher at best, and he shouldn't be on the field on a running down.

The thing that I read many Browns' fans say after he was cut is that whoever signs him should prepare themselves for him always almost getting to the passer, but rarely actually getting there.

That seems about right, but that is the slogan of the Saints' front 4 anyways...

Kruger should be on the bench, done nothing to earn his spot. Has been a disappointment so far. He was taken out of the game in the 4th qtr and replaced by edibali*, pass rush looked better when Kruger was on the sideline.

Agreed. I was super excited when we signed him but he's been bad. Time to let Edebali get some more playing time.

If he earned then pay him.

Re: Nick Fairley becoming a solid pickup

Kruger has been flat out bad huh? Can't honestly say I've zeroed in on his game film. So you guys think he's better in the bench?

If Nick has not learned his lesson and goes back to his old ways he will price himself right out the door.

He may have actually learned his lesson; play good football, stay in shape, leave the bong along and let the highest bidder win...

Rankins, healthy and stronger and Onyemata, experienced and coached will be fine at the 3-tech next season...
