    Hmm, I thought I saw Wilber listed at 243 or something like that somewhere. Brown looks like a giant out there compared to some of these guys.

    Teams using the 4-3 normally carry 8-9 lineman. Five of the guys supposed to be on that line, at draft time, are now gone. Ware has been injured recently, and now Hatcher. Of the group of Dlinemen they are playing, only one or two would be on the team at all, in a non-inury situation.

    And like the man said, look at Atlanta. A few key injuries at the same position, and they're toast.

    The championship post might have been funny the 1st ten thousand that it was used here, but not so much anymore.

    Hooray for Miles, even though I like TW, and sort of like what Beasley does, I just don't think the opposing defenses fear them, they can't take over a game. The threat of a healthy Miles will do wonders for our offense

    Lol. You're funny.

    It will never cease to make me laugh. Then again, I am easily amused.

    Is Brown the Everett that keeps getting knocked on his butt? Or was that Dawkins? I would say I can't tell them apart, but all of the newbies look the same these days: Brown, Dawkins, Nevis and now Irvin.

    Only Wynn, Selvie and Hayden have seemed to distinguish themselves within Marinelli's Misfits.

    I have no faith in Miles Austin staying healthy. I think we need to part ways with him this off-season.He was a heck of a receiver for a few years but he has a glass hamstring.

    Interesting.

    I didn't know that every team but the Cowboys could lose 50% of their projected starting Dline before the season even kicks off, their top 2 Dline back ups, a HoF DE for half the season, an all pro MLB , their starting corner and safety and just plug the next man in...no problem.

    Exactly, I can't image any team that would lose its entire D-line and be OK.

    Claiborne, Wilcox/Johnson, Carr, Church, Scandrick, Lee, Carter, Durant, Ratliff, Hatcher, Spencer, Ware (100%) sounds potentially like a good defense. With Crawford and Bass in rotation. We'll never know because over half of them are missing.

    Atlanta has had DL injuries but losing Julio Jones for the season and Roddy White for a good chunk of it has doomed them just as bad.

    The DL is no worse now than it was several weeks ago. Our secondary is ailing more than anything else. We have only one legitimate safety and no legitimate third corner.

    I don't know about that... Nevis has looked like a pretty good pusher in the middle.

    What you say makes sense but it seems to happen every year. At what point do we say "Maybe our depth is an issue" or is it a correctable training staff issue or maybe something else. The problem isn't that we don't have a productive replacement for all of them, it's that we don't have a productive replacement for ANY of them.

    Or the starters can't stay healthy the whole season.

    Brown took some snaps at DT against the Saints and was knocked down once that I know about. At 6-1, 263 he would be a freak if he didn't get pushed around playing DT against Guards like Jari Evans.
