...Darin Gantt:

Brayton out (ankle) so Ev.Brown goes to RDE, CJohnson to LDE.

If Greg wins the job it's not because E. Brown isn't good enough, it's because he's just that good. I was really shocked at how easily he blew past double teams, can't wait to see him again this Sat.

just for shits.... lets say Hardy played against the jets with the 1st team and was still as dominate as he was against the baltimore 2nd string, should be basically be gaurenteed a starting spot?

I would be happy as poo if it was just an issue of a logjam of talent at DE

the way i see it, if we take a dude in the second and he's a bust, then we take a dude in the 6th that is a steal, then i call that a push and am not upset about it. the universe balances itself out.

Not if brayton is out there.

Love Brayton but I hope we dont rush him back. We need to give hardy a better look in pre-season. Johnson is the one that has not impressed me much.

LOL! We gave up a 1st round pick for a guy that is the 4th best DE on the roster. Whats worse is that he is being outplayed by a rookie 6th round draft pick. Brilliant move Marty Hurney!

But what if the guy in the 6th round is a steal and becomes Julius Peppers with heart and a motor? Does that make Marty Hurney stupid? ;)

Wells its not like Greg Hardy was some unknown guy from some D1 school that Hurney unearthed..It was already known Hardy had this skill that was not the major problem

Come ON!! The only pick in the past two or three years you can bitch about is Everette Brown? He will make you eat your words. Hurney is keeping us from becoming the Lions or someone like them. Look at the talent on our team we got in the late rounds recently (4th or later): King, Rosario, Barnidge, Norwood, Hardy, Schwartz, Munnerlyn, Bernadeau, Fiametta, Gettis, Pike, Pugh, CJ Wilson, etc.

Look at players we bring in with late round picks: Chris Harris/Jamal Williams, Louis Leonard, Tank Tyler.

Look at the undrafted free agents we picked up: Matt Moore, Sutton, R. Jackson, C. Martin, H. Cantwell.

Then there are bargain free agents like K. Moore, Brayton, E. Johnson.

THen look at the players we have that were great values when we drafted them (projected to go much higher than they did): Clausen, D. WIlliams, Connor, LaFell, Kalil, Robinson, Marshall, Pike, Godfrey, S. Martin, etc.

Now look at the high priced free agents we have on the roster: We don't have any. Wright? Hudson? Francisco?

Bottom line: We are going to be competitive for a long time, as long as Hurney is the GM. I have 20 million reasons why I would rather have Hardy and his motor over Peppers. Louis Leonard is fine with me over Haynesworth. I will take Moore and Clausen over Bradford and his salary. Everybody is quick to judge. Lafell is going to be fine this year. Jarrett may step up. Kenny Moore is ready. Things are pretty damn good right now, and you want to make fun of the Brown pick? It was a good pick, and will pay off for the next 10 years. First scrimmage and you go off-what the hell is that?

Brayton won't be back for at least a few games. Wouldn't be surprised if he got the rest of the preseason off. Hardy, Brown and Johnson will all get plenty of work. In the regular season I wouldn't be surprised if we go with Johnson and Brayton on running downs and move both of them inside and put Hardy and Brown on the ends on passing downs. Mix in Norwood for good measure on a blitz from the outside , and we should be able to get some push. I have high hopes for Louis and Johnson as well inside.

It will be good to get Tyler back as well. With the exception of Brayton everyone else needs all the reps they can get.
