we'll see; rivera acknowledge he was playing out of position in his previous teams..although so was vernon gholston and i'm not sure he's working out either.

Gholston received much more praise from the Jets after he moved to DE...

Derek Landri seemed better than what we have now, but they let him go. He wasn't great, but was serviceable.

You forgot we signed a 6-5 315 pound Defensive Tackle?

Man oh man.

His size isn't his issue. If you search the 49er and Seahawk forums you'll find that his biggest knock is Drive, Desire, Toughness. He is known to just give up, but also take into account not only was he in the wrong scheme, he also played DE and not his natural position, so that probably affected his motivation. He is also known to be full of talent. So, we need motivation for him and some solid coaching, he could be a decent pick up, he has the size and strength to take up blockers.

As long as he can hold the tackles, and keep them from Beason, I'll be perfectly fine with Balmer this year.

What excites me about the guy is that he was a former first round talent. Just misused by idiot teams. If Rivera wanted him, he must know something. He's also 300+ pounds, we need that. I still say we need to give Stroud or pat williams a call.

Well maybe since he's from NC he will be motivated. Honestly, as has already been said, it can't be worse than what we've got. Look at it this way, we got a first round talent(he was a beast at UNC) on the cheap at the age of 24. Considering our current situation on the D-Line, complaining would be idiocy.

    • And I'm sure everyone in new york though Pryor was going to be great when he was picked. Coleman and Adams have both been to Pro Bowls in the last 2 years. We both know that may not be the best measure of their quality as players, but it would certainly suggest they are more than "duct tape and bubble gum".
    • Can't say we have the best defense, Falcons are one piece away from taking that spot, and if mckinnley pans out, then look out. Bucs are solid on paper and seem to put it together at the end of the season. Saints are the saints but did add lattimore and get rankins healthy to start the season. Our front 7 is still the best in the NFC south, but we saw last year teams will just target our secondary rather then test luke or td. We are really putting our faith in a bunch of unknowns, and we've seen before how that can turn out
