    he missed 4 of the last 6 games last year at MLB. He really isn't much better than Lee at staying on field. They might have to just throw caution to the wind and go with youth here.

    I turns out that Holloman was out of practice for some reason. That might have been the reason that Durant was in at MLB; although Durant did look decent in the small amount of time that he played at MLB last season.

    Well in that case, let's call our old 1st round finesse LB Barbie C back up.

    I'm sure he'll be compelled once he sees the new stretching environment instituted within this world class facility.

    Alex Albright might be worth a look......Heard a rumor we could be looking into convincing Ray Lewis and Ed Reed to sign together. @ this point...I'n not shocked to hear anything.

    Justin Durant used to play MLB for Jack Del Rio in Jacksonville once upon a time.

    Duran is probably the best LB on the roster right now. SAM is the least important LB spot so it make a ton of sense to shift him over. He'll be ok if the DL can keep him clean.

    It really appears to me the C'boys organization is committed to settling the MLB problem in house, either with Durant or whoever looks able to provide reasonably adequate replacement for Lee. Forget about bringing in other outside vets -- it isn't likely, imho. Those available would likely be washed up anyhow and still be obliged to be indoctrinated into our current system.

    Let the young, hungry guys battle it out...I don't want the "dancin' to the oldies" committee to come in here if we start bringing guys in (old vets) that have not only lost a step, but steps they can't find any more....IMO, Durant was playing the Mike because Holloman was out...competition between Holloman, Hitchens and Durant should give one of those stories to watch in TC....

    At first I thought you were making a somewhat inflated claim about Durant... But thinking about it, at this point you're right. He is probably the best LB on the roster.

    then hire him as a coach. He physically would be an embarrassment on the field now.

    I think Sean Lee will be out there helping the LB's as soon as he can. No need for anyone else, other than the current LB coach & Lee.

    Marinelli and his staff are more than capable of teaching the young guys. Urlacher would be a progress stopper. He's not coming to Dallas.

    Lee and his kind are progress stoppers. As old as y'all are saying Urlacher is, he'd still be the best on our team at the present time. What does that say about our group?

    From an experaince stand point I think Durant has an edge but I would not be surprised to see Holloman beat him out for the starting job. Holloman at 6'02 242 is bigger and from what I have seen of the 2 Holloman seems to be quicker

    "Yeah, I'm playing a lot of golf," Urlacher told the newspaper. "The first thing on my mind when I wake up isn't working out anymore. So that's a good thing. Doesn't make me mad.”

    And believe him, Urlacher doesn't sound interested at all in making a comeback. It has been a month since he announced his retirement, and Urlacher doesn't seem to be regretting his decision.

    "No. No," Urlacher said. "My agent, when I told him -- I just want to retire -- he went through every scenario: 'What if so-and-so calls? What if they offer me $10 million?' I don't want to play. I don't have a desire to play. I'm not in shape. I haven't been doing football stuff.

    Put another way, He no want to play football. I hate these rumors reporters know he played for Rod so all of a sudden he is coming? LOL He has no desire to play any longer

    I don't agree that he'd be the best on our team. He's not in his prime anymore.

    He'd be far, far from the best LB on this team. There's a reason the guy is on the street right now. He's done.
