Didn't Rivera outright state that he expects 10 wins out of this team?

I could be wrong, but I think Zod actually means that if they bring someone in it will likely be a promising young guy with the right attitude. Not some old guy who is a name to please the crowds yet offers nothing more than the youngsters.


Don't we already have that on the roster?? We are trying to replace Ron edwards for 1 season not develping another young DT right.

No need to emphasize any words, I'm just saying that with Rivera having such high expectations out of his team; There's no reason in hell would he consider this a wash of a season.

Tough love

Rivera is going to make these guys eat sh|t all year and get mean. By default he will also cause some fans who think you can just go down to the local All-Pro DT store and pick one up every week to have a full-on, fist of rage, neck vein heart attack.

I agree with both strategies.

We could have signed someone, just not announced it yet because they wanted to get a jump on all you can eat riblettes.

I think that is fuging stupid. Some people go way to far I agree. But most fans are talking about bringing in a player with some game exp. and can help the rookies pick up the system. You can't tell me that their is no DT out there that can't hold up better then FUa can right now.

I have no doubt we will sign someone at DT, if for no other reason then we need another warm body at that position.

Don't get yourself too excited, I have a feeling it will be someone we've never heard of.

Look at the way we have been bringing in cast offs from other teams etc. We are quite prepared to bring in several guys to see who shows the most and then boot out the others.

Are the 'vets' going to be better than another young guy in rotation? Possibly, might help them, but I wouldn't fool myself into thinking that the vets are going to play any better. These guys have been bit part players for some time now and teams aren't prepared to guarantee their salaries otherwise they wouldn't be on the street.

I'm not saying one way is right over the other, but I am personally not too bothered if its a 'name' and actually would prefer it if it weren't.

In all those other position we brought a young player in. We already had a vet. WR #89 Cb Gamble we have nobody in the DT position like that.

You can't tell me that right now Kemo couldn't hold his spot better then Fua. Fua is not ready right now he is not big enough to do what they are asking him to do. He is suppose to demand double team blocks he is getting crushed by one person right now. We are trying to replace Ron Edwards for 1 year. Who is better to do that a older vet or another young guy?
