    Exactly. Do I think Parsons can do it? Maybe? Maybe not. What I do know is he can play linebacker and I don’t make my linebacker group worse in the name of adding him to DE….

    They may have him standing up.

    I assume Slater starts for them, so that'll be interesting.

    Herbert is really good, but he doesn't get rid of the ball as quickly as Brady.

    I've said in other threads though that I'm much more worried about missing Collins than either DE.

    Steele is going to be a problem. Spending all day hoping I'm wrong, and that THIS staff doesn't pull a Green and not do anything about it until it's too late.

    I also hope Knight is ready to backup Tyron, because if Steele has to play LT, it could become painful.

    I like Steele, but isn't ready yet.

    What does this say about their confidence in Basham and Armstrong? They have been talking them up all offseason, and even this week— and then when it cones tome to play them— you announce you are starting a rookie out of position over them?

    Nah… this move reeks of desperation and is an admission of the fact they tolerate shoddy depth knowingly and cross their fingers when it comes to injuries

    Way to Byron Jones him. This staff has zero idea what they are doing much like the last 8.

    Whoever goes against Slater is shut down. He single handily took chase young out of the game

    This move would be impossible for a normal LB to do. Thankfully Parsons is an athletic freak of nature that it’s possible he could be this teams second best pass rusher

    It’s a smart move.

    playing Neal/Parsons 80 percent of the time was ridiculous.

    we need Jaylon/Lve on the field more.

    play our best 3.

    Hopefully this means that he's looked great in practice at DE and it's not just a thing of necessity.

    That’s kind of where I’m at. If it’s a passing situation. Absolutely rush Parsons. Whether that’s from the edge or up the middle.

    just don’t want to see him playing with his hand in the dirt on rushing downs. That doesn’t play to his strengths.

    I am sure he has practiced and is descent at it or they would not make the move.

    Put the best 11 on the field. Rushing Parsons and having a healthy LVE at MLB is >> whatever garbage will be attempting to rush the passer at DE.

    It's Crappaport. Known liar. I'm sure Parsons will be in the mix at DE, but I highly doubt he plays more than 50% of his snaps there.

    That’s my hope. Cox in on passing downs and third down. Limiting jaylon on the field is best for business. Micah I do think they’ll do hybrid looks. He’ll play linebacker w golston snd Armstrong on the ends. Then he shifts up at points. I don’t see him strictly being dend

    There was a lot of talk all offseason about a 3-4 over or some such formation where one outside guy was a LB lining up on the outside standing. I wonder if that is what is really going on here. Are they really going to the 3-4 over with Parsons as the blitzing OLB?

    I hope contracts and seniority don’t enter into the rotation . Neal & Cox deserve more playing time LVE & Smith less.

    Let’s hope today marks the day that Parsons took over this defense. A few big plays , especially in key moments, and this guy will instantly become the best player on this defense.
