    Yeah, I've heard a lot of good reports on Ben Bass so far this offseason.

    This.

    And I think it's going to be better than what several here think or have thought.

    That doesn't surprise me at all. Glad to hear it.

    All that debating over his character, and he's released for medical reasons. :)

    I agree. If everyone is healthy (or relatively healthy) for the season, I think we have a great starting unit.

    And to compliment that, we have youth on our second line with Lissemore, Crawford, Wilber, and Bass. Now, no one here truly knows how any of those guys will end up.... but really, its a pretty good situation. You have experience and top end talent on the first unit... and youth/potential in the second unit.

    We'll see how it shakes out. But I am pretty stoked to see the defense this year.

    Yeah, too bad they had to lower their standards for nothing...

    Seems like they thought he was a really good guy. Too bad they weren't able to evaluate him better physically before actually signing him. :)

    I am concerned. Ratliff has been banged up for 3 years. Ware has been banged up for a couple and coming off a shoulder surgery. Hatcher had a good year last year, but is still an unknown.

    I don't really trust guys like Lissemore, Bass, or Wilbur to carry the load. I am optimistic Crawford will be a player.

    Seems they were mistaken.

    Yeah, too bad they didn't find out he can't play until after they lowered their standards to sign him.

    Oh well, problem solved, however long it took.

    Mistake made and corrected.

    I guess the way Ben Bass played in ota's and etc made him expandable exspecially since you can't make the club in the tub.

    I would be one of the several. I was gnashing my teeth when the Cowboys passed on Floyd. I'll be elated to learn I have dental bills for no reason.

    Saw Ben Bass in OTAs and though it was the Under Ware Olympics, he looked stronger and faster than any big man on the field.

    I don't know personally, but the reports I have read have been good.

    Very legit concerns.

    I'd be concerned, too, if I were worried about the play of any of those guys. They're all going to play at a level well above average for NFL DLs. Injuries are a legitimate concern, but they are for everybody. The only one I'm significantly concerned about is Ratliff, but then I also like the guys we have on the DL bench for their respective roles. I think Crawford's going to be a starting quality player, too.
