You got it JB
we really have nothing to lose. we need more depth on the dline, he is availible. we've seen him on the field for a couple weeks so we know how close he is to being ready. i don't expect huge things out of him but i do think he is an upgrade over hayden who i think is actually better than most here think. if he can get back to being the player he was he can help the team. if not you cut him and move on
okoye is not ready to play so really has no effect on him anyways.
This team has backed and supported Brent since day 1 when this tragic event happened. If you recall he was on the sidelines in street clothes during a game because they wanted him there. This is not going to cause a division. Brent is getting a chance and one he can't afford to blow and if falls to him to get himself ready physically and mentally but he will have the support of his teammates that I have no doubts about
You don't appear to be very well informed.
1. It's a 53 man roster, not 56.
2. They just signed him to a contract extension though next season. Why would he not be here next year?
I'm sorry man but I don't have a clue what you were attempting to say or point out here.
They'd have two completely different roles. One of the big components this defense is lacking is the giant 1T tackle. Think Mebane in Seattle. They're hoping Brent can provide that.
Between Melton & Crawford, and occasional snaps for maybe Coleman, they're OK at the 3T.
As for all the other nonsense in the OP, this is why certain people shouldn't have thread-starting rights.
I believe Jerry said he has a spot on the roster for TC.
When did they go to 56 man roster?
And how did the chance on Rolando McClain work out. Did not play and came in a bit overweight, not in shape from not playing.....
It obivous to me for reasons other than football Jerry made this decision in the spring. Another coaching de
I did not say he was too fat, the coaches did. What message does that send the rest of the team? It doesn't matter how hard you work it's really comes down to Jerry's agenda. Brent was going to get a chance to play no matter what. D Colman, Okoye and Hayden are not over weight. Brent Has had all summer to get in shape
Coaches did say he was over weight and needs to lose some and because of that there is a good chance he will not be on the 46 man game day roster.
Jerry pulled a Costner... Like Costner said in Draft Day... Im the GM i provide the players you coach them.
Last chance..Discuss the thread without taking cheap shots or enjoy the vacation.
I don't think there was any plan to play Okoye this year, so he's not in the picture.
Instead, it comes down to whether Brent might be better than Hayden or Terrell McClain, and it's probably worth taking a shot that he could be at some point this season. If we had two world beaters at 1-tech, then we possibly would have seen Dallas just cut Brent and give him a chance to restart his career elsewhere.
As is, we're just trying to find out who we can count on the most on this defense. But it would surprise me to even see Brent on the active roster at this point.
He's paid his dude and im not God to reserve any further judgment on the guy...
Let him play he's probably nothing but a rotational guy who can give a breather and at this point in the season Ill take that...
Is that movie worth watching, by the way?
Whenever I read Okoye, I think Christian Okoye, the Nigerian Nightmare...
I was wondering also.
I see it and I think 'It's like Waterworld, only with the NFL.'
I saw it, it was OK, but completely unrealistic on how I would imagine a draft day to go down, but that is Hollywood.
Yes, but some of these threads deserve a few outside the line shots...
