The Tough Guys

Recommended Posts

I've noticed a lot of threads about the new DL.  I think this is a bright spot moving forward.  Langford, Anderson , and Parry are excelling out there.  We were stuffing Ivory when they were running against our nickel defense.  These guys do not stay blocked, and they make plays.  Please, Please, Please do not make this a middle linebacker thread.  Everyone knows that is a huge hole. 


I am a little confused about the role of our DL.  Specifically when it comes to applying pressure.  These guys are all plus run defenders, but it does completely rely on other sources of pressure.  I don't really see us as a traditional attacking 3-4.  Parry would be the ideal nose in a 4-3.  Langford and Anderson could both be great left ends in a 4-3, or they could be the classic 3-4 ends.  I guess what I'm getting at, is should we draft a pressure 3 technique to go with Parry, or do we still try to find pieces for the classic 3-4, like the fatty NT, and improved linebacker play across the board?

They are looking at T.Y. Mcgill or Billy Winn to be that 3 technique.  Problem is they are both very new and can't provide a whole lot of contribution for a couple of weeks.  People talked about us one gapping, but to me it still looks like we are doing quite a bit of two gapping out there as well.  I think they are confident Parry can get the job done and I can' t say they are wrong at this point.  I saw him playing head up over the center on several occasions.  He and Henry Anderson are doing a really fine job out there.  I'll have to check the stat line but it seemed like Henry had at least another 6-8 tackles out there again including the sack.  H.A. is just a BEAST out there to be honest.

    • Maybe Nelson plays LT this week and balls out, then the problem is resolved, LOL.    IDK, depends on how the draft goes towards filling the pricey players at LT, DE, WR, and QB.  We might have to let one of Nelson or Leonard go.  We might get a 3rd round comp pick for Nelson's contract, 4th for Leonard's contract, and we could find a ILB in that round.  Don't have to make that decision for a while, and if Ballard can hit on those pricey position draft picks, we could pay both while the youngsters are playing on their rookie deals.   No, I doubt BB would pay either....and would take the comp picks. 
    • I predict I will be at the texans @ colts game on Dec. 20th. 
    • he has one year left and a low salary, he probably will play that out and they make a decision after next season.  doubt he gets cut before then, he seems to have a strong work ethic and the potential is there to be a good edge rusher 
    • Yeah, Ballard & Reich should end Philip’s impressive consecutive games streak and sit him for a game, but not in favor of the rookie QB – I think I’ve seen this movie before, 3 seasons ago when Giants GM Jerry Reese & HC Ben McAdoo thought it would be a good idea to sit Eli Manning and end his 210 game streak, the longest in the NFL at the time but not to play their rookie 3rd round draft pick QB Davis Webb, but to start Geno Smith instead. They lost anyway, and Reese & McAdoo were immediately fired, and Eli started the next game and led the G-men to 1 more win that year.
    • This season run vs pass. 311 rushes 265 passes.  So no, Frank is not pass happy.
