If I hear a player is 'too small' again, I may go outside and beat my head over a wall.
Ahmad Brooks is hype. Nothing more, nothing less. He's a freak because of his size and speed combo, but NOTHING else.
D'Qwell is a football player. Albeit he's undersized, he gets after it working as hard as anyone in the weight room. He put up numbers alot of people overlook and was a finalist for the Butkus Award even.
I don't care if you're 5'2 or 6'8, if you can produce stats, you can produce. D'Qwell does that and I would LOVE to get him.
Although Parcells will probably look at his size and write him off, just as we did even in our old 4-3 defense with players like Nguyen and Coakley. Still yet, you could be a team like the Falcons and have what was thought of as 'tweeners' in Demorrio Williams and Michael Boley who currently start. Williams is even the leader tackler for any OLB in the NFL this year. So much for size.
