Sullivan improving?
I read today that Sullivan has seven tackles this pre-season...leader on the D-Line. Now that Young is out for a bit, Sullivan is going to get some more reps in. His weight is down and he has a better (still not par) work ethic than last year.

Are we going to see Sullivan come back to work and contribute? Or is it just a waste of time and money to have him on the roster this year?

He's already graduated to the 2nd string, so we can only hope.

The injury to Young will show us how bad Sullivan wants it. This is a great oppurtunity for him and hopefully he'll be able to capitalize.

5 tackles and 2 assist, in two preseason games thats good considering he isn't on the first unit and not getting awhole lot of playing time.

I think we'll get a good idea of where Sullivan is at this week against Jamal Lewis and the Ravens. So far, he looks like he's starting to get it.

Our D-line would be unreal (and very deep) if the light bulb truly comes on for this guy.

I just hope the guy can come in a contribute. It would be nice to see Sully actually earn a spot back in the starting rotation. Heres to hoping.

Gambler, I believe that Sully needs a chance to run with the first unit and get in the flow of the game. I know he shouldn't need that, but he is what he is, and sitting him on the bench obviously is not going to change that.

He needs a big brother type of mentor. He is still immature and needs some guidance by a pro. I wish someone would throw him a rope and see if he grabs it. Maybe Pease will throw him in the fire with the first team. I'm willing to give him the chance to prove himself this year. If he doesn't seize this opportunity and become a force to reckon with this season I say release or trade him.

Hopefully, being around guys like Howard, Smith, and Grant will help him to elevate his play.

By the same token, I think Fahkir Brown and Jason Craft will both play well, simply by being around Dwight Smith and Mike McKenzie, neither of whom seem very shy about voicing their opinion.
