I Know You Want a DT But...

60 posts in this topic

sorry, I dont want nice guys on defense, I want mean, angry, high motor players. So the guy gets carried away, I dont think it something that cant be fixed, and for the talent he has, it would be a waste to not try. Jon Beason can get this guy in control.

So it would be a waste to not draft a guy in the top 10-15 that is such a loose cannon, that he refused to come off the field when his coach ordered him off after picking up a personal foul??

He has the tools to be as good as he wants to be but his head isn't on right. He is a loose cannon. He's always been one and he likely always will be. He also tried to end Matt Barkley's career in HS when they were both committed to USC. That's not a just playing hard move, that's an I don't give a poo about the consequences move....

i agree with what somebody said about beason. if anybody can keep a young player adjusted and focused it's 52.

for what it's worth, everybody said cam was a thug pre-draft too.

The people who said he was a "thug" were just bashing for the sake of bashing. People said he had character concerns, which leading up to the draft he did. There's a much bigger difference between a guy having some red flags off the field and a guy who has red flags on. FWIW Cam also had some concerns between the numbers, but has for the most part completely silenced the doubters. Also, who said we were going to a 3-4 next year, I mean we may yes, but it's not a given. Vontaze would be an absolute waste of a pick if you're going to play him at Will or Sam, and I really can't take anyone serious if they suggest we should ever move Beast out of the Mike again....

football is a violent sport.

There's a big difference in a violent collision, and intentionally going low on a QB trying to end his career....

And for all the people who say Burfict is coachable, explain why Dennis Erickson has felt the need to either bench Vontaze during critical moments of games, or outright bench him for the entire contest....both of these have happened on numerous occasions. Sure Vontaze may jump across the line and stop the ball carrier on fourth down in the third quarter, but he will almost certainly come back in the fourth and give the opposing offense 15 yards with one of his inexplicable late hits....

Playing mean =/= playing dirty

Blackmon will be our #1 pick.

First 2 min is Blackmon Vs. Amukamara (2nd best CB in this year draft) and Blackmon abused him...

I can live with Blackmon, my preference is to fix the offensive line with Kalil, but I'm really beginning to believe (both from what I've heard from friends @USC and from the articles that have come out this week) that both Barkley and Kalil will come back for a run at the National Title next year....
