If you are that big and kick ass as Salty suggest, maybe you should go play RT against SF :)


I'm 6'6" and 300 lbs, but I'm also 38 and years of abuse on my knees, back, etc through football, powerlifting and strongman competitions have taken their toll.

You're much better off with Schwartz, trust me on that.

Sounds about like how Schwartz plays

LOL, I would make Schwartz look like Tony Bosselli at this point.

It's pretty encouraging to hear the good words about DT. Trying not to get my hopes up though but I'm secretly really excited about him. Don't tell anyone.


LOL, I'm excited about him as well - but I'm remaining "cautiously optimistic" because we've all seen and heard about guys who are studs in practice and duds in games.

Having said that... he's big, fast and can run routes and catch the ball so it's a good start.

I also forgot to mention that he spent extra time after practice catching balls out of the jugs machine by himself. He may be doing this simply to make a good first impression on the coaching staff, but that in itself is a good sign: he cares enough to try and make a good impression.

how would you compare him with the other WRs and did he look better with one QB over the other?

Rayzor did you not see where Catman said he could run routes and catch the ball. That automatically puts him in the starting line up as a 2/3 :)

I was really focused in on him, so at the time I wasn't thinking about how he compared to the other receivers... but I noticed that he seem to run very clean routes, explode out of his breaks and make good aggressive catches (with his hands, snatches the ball out of the air).

Im so not a fan of switching QBs all season. I feel like we are getting into a Anderson and Quin type situation. You should stick with one guy win or lose.

so he looked equally good with whomever was throwing the ball, i guess?

agreed. i forget about that one. i remember well denny green going back and forth between warner and mccown. quite a few times he wouldn't announce who was starting until right before the game. that didn't really do anyone any good.

I'd say that's a fair statement since I wasn't really focused on who was throwing him the ball as much as I was focused on him.

I'm not taking sides here at all, but Moore looks good in practice - has from day 1 this year. That's not to say Clausen looks bad, but Moore is smooth, quick and the ball jumps out of his hand.

Yeah, I agree as well... at a certain point you have to pick a guy and stick with him (especially when your dealing with a rookie) but since neither of these guys have performed particularly well this year and we have a bye, I can also understand why they are still giving both of them the opportunity to take the job at this point (although performance in practice has never been a problem for either one of these guys).

is the defense trying to duplicate what other defenses are doing in games? throwing 9-10 in the box?

No, not that I noticed.

They were in shells today so there was nothing heavy going on, but most of what I saw I would characterize as us playing our style of defense. I would also say that I didn't see many running plays being executed (if any) it was 99% passing plays. It's funny what you recall when someone starts asking questions.

I think you raise an excellent point, maybe they did that on a day I wasn't there? If not, it would seem to make perfect sense to me. I'm not worried about taking reps away from our defense if it means our offense can get better at handling pressure.
