If Costa is cut, Nevis will instantly elevate into my top 5 favorite Cowboys of all time.
That's good work by you two. Once is a coincidence. Twice a trend. Three times? That has legs.
He's probably a victim of a scheme change. Sort of like Lissemore but other way around.
LOL. If they cut Bernie will you do a hand stand?
Could possibly get a late round draft pick for Costa--Centers are needed.
I actually wouldn't mind Bernadeau as a backup C/G. At least he has girth and can hold his ground with proper technique. He's never physically over matched like Costa.
You may have missed the regime change that took place during the 2011-2012 offseason. You know, the one that replaced Bill Polian and Jim Caldwell with Ryan Grigson and Chuck Pagano? The one that resulted in a change from a 4-3 under, cover two scheme to a 3-4 defense?
Love the Drake.
I think we are about to say so Long to Long, got knocked around yesterday.
That's true. If he'd play consistently well we could run well on both sides of the ball IMO. I don't know how well Waters will hold up or how many snaps he's going to get in the near future. I like the idea of him being a swing interior lineman as well. You think they're going to cut Costa over Arkin if Bernie can backup C?
When Nevis worked out for the Cowboys last week I thought it was a great move and we would eventually sign him. These street free agents the Cowboys are bringing in are quickly making me forget about Spencer and Rat.
Waters worries me. I'm not sure if that's rust or a guy who just can't play anymore.
Nevis seems like a great fit for this defense. I wish they could have picked him up a few weeks back when Indy released him.
Makes me think of Drake from Blade Trinity, with that song Fatal playin.
Like the churn in the roster, always gotta look for some improvement, and it doesn't always have to come in free agency or the draft.
I don't know. I haven't even penciled him in yet. We have to see how it goes for awhile. You can't just walk off the street after that long away and play at a high level.
Stick a fork in Spencer -he is done
Definitely the wrong defense for an undertackle. Proof?
The Worst Year of Warren Sapp's Life
Warren Sapp was in the prime of his career in 2004. He was a seven time Pro Bowler and the Defensive Player of the Year in 2000. He was the anchor of a perennial top five defense playing defensive tackle in Tampa Bay. From 1995-2003, he averaged nearly 50 solo tackles and 8.5 sacks per 16 games - extraordinary numbers for an interior defensive lineman.
Before the 2004 season, Sapp signed with Oakland, where he moved to defensive end in the Raiders' new 3-4 defense. The result: 2.5 sacks during a season that Sapp called "the hardest of my life." Those numbers can't be dismissed as age related. Sapp rebounded with another double-digit sack season in 2006 after moving back into a more familiar defensive tackle role. What made Sapp so successful in Tampa Bay but hate life during his first season in Oakland?
We'll let David Carr deliver the punchline.
After one of the rare occasions that Sapp got close enough to sniff Carr (or any quarterback in 2004) and began sniping at the young quarterback's ability to read defenses, Carr apparently snapped back, "You need to be a 3-technique." Translation: "I'm not scared of you as a defensive end." Carr, who will never be mistaken for Brett Favre, voiced what Sapp already knew. Even the subtlest difference in alignment and responsibility can make a huge difference in a player's production. Sapp's new role was significantly different. His Pro Bowl numbers (and ability to effectively intimidate) were paying a heavy price.
Marinelli has turned former 6th and 7th rounders into gold. Imagine what he could do with former 3rd rounder.
