    LDE? What or who is keeping him from filling the gaping hole we've had for years at RDE?

    There is definitely a price to pay for being the most powerful brand in professional sports. They get that distinction with relentless marketing - which also tends to reveal quite a bit of info that could be useful kept closer to the vest.

    It only looks bad for Taco. Team chemistry can easily be destroyed by just 1 diva, i.e. TO, Dez, AB, OBJ, etc.

    It's funny how you want to talk about "big boy panties" but apparently lack enough of what goes in them to see people talk about the subject. Quite the contradiction.

    Feel free to cover your eyes and ears on a subject that's clearly too tough for you to handle. Just don't expect anyone else to have to do the same.

    There's the door....

    That’s why Marinelli needs to disappear from the scene.

    You mean to tell me a team that loves position flex was suddenly inflexible?

    Happens a lot in sports. How do you think the Cowboys got Haley? Why did the Stealers trade Brown to the Raiders. Why did the Raiders cut AB? Why did the Stealers release Bell? Why did Ramsey fight with his coach and is now on the trading block? Why did the Dolphins dump Stills? Why did the Giants trade OBJ? These are just off the top of my head. I am sure there are lots more.

    This is a great point and maybe points to the leadership on this team not being real strong, at least on defense. I don't know what goes on with the team, but I wonder how many players tried to reach Taco.

    You put him at end and have him destroy the tackle off the ball on 3rd down.

    He was amazing at it in college and he is amazing at it in the nfl.

    The leadership doesn’t seem to be a problem with other DLinemen. I think it’s more of a Taco attitude issue, combined with not enough talent for the team to be willing to deal with it.

    There are probably a whole lot of man-child players that we never even hear about because the team successfully keeps it behind closed doors. But your evaluation is spot-on.

    Its not about position flex, DLaw only plays LDE with a few looks at RDE. But in this defense the DE's have to set the corner and play run defense. DE is an elite pass rusher but he also plays run defense very well, the Dallas front office clearly didn't think Watt could do that (even Demarcus Ware had trouble with the initial switch from 3-4 LB to 4-3 DE).

    Dallas rated Watt a better player but they didn't see him playing anywhere but the position DLaw was already in.

    One inch shorter and 10 pounds heavier than RG according to the wiki. What position does Gregory play?

    Also our roster has talent at every spot on the OL and DL. There is no more free ride. I used the example of Ereck Flowers yesterday, that was a bigger mistake but the Giants played him for four years because A) he was a top ten pick, and B) his contract was guaranteed, and C) they didn't have anyone else.

    A 420-unfriendly Randy Gregory is a Top Five draft choice, he has more natural strength than players his size and he has freakish athletic ability.

    We also haven't seen Gregory hold up in run defense for two years, he has always been a situational player.

    Wrong comparison.

    You don't hear about stuff like this with the Patriots.
