In discussions with the press today, Ron Rivera gave an update on Andre Neblett. Apparently, he has been suffering from "hypertension, stress, and fatigue". Throw in his 4 game suspension, and it is not looking very good for Andre.

We are really thin at the 3 tech DT position. We have McClain and...?

Unless someone like Chandler really steps up, it seems this is an area we will need to address.

My guess is they wait until the Monday following game 1 to bring someone in, avoiding the salary guarantee should we add someone to the 53 before week 1.

In any case, this is an area to keep an eye on, and let's hope McClain shows good growth going into year 2.

Don't you EVER question the coaching staff, "address" the DT position? You aren't a coach so stop acting like one.

I hope Neblett gets cut. 4 game suspension doesn't nullify the fact that he's a cheating douche.

Strange symptoms for a guy of his age and physical fitness, hope it's nothing serious.

As for the "cheating douche" comment, grow the fug up, you don't have a clue about what he popped positive for. It takes very little to throw a flag.

I do hope we bring some guys in, with Edwards playing the typical NT, we're going to need a good DT who can get penetration, but not be moved off his spot vs the run.

Don't you EVER question a player, unless you are a current or former commissoner then you have no right to comment on this.

You're to fugging stupid to validate your arguement. It could have easily been a diet supplement that got flagged, or adderal is another one that frequently gets flagged.

Nothing like just talking out of your ass just to have something to say.

Just because it wasn't horse steroids doesn't mean he wasn't cheating.

He knew he shouldn't have taken that supplement and he did it anyway. Throw in stupid as well.

This board is turning into a troll circus fast. It only takes about two comments into each thread before a newly christened huddle doucher successfully attempts to turn every topic into a pissing match.

It's getting to the point where you only read the OP then bow out before it gets ugly.

I Agree! This forum has become really dumb. Grown up men trying to pick chit chat fights all the time to see who's better or think they know better.

Blame the MODS for this $hit. Even sometimes they're the one making smart comments. I careless to speak my mind

The mods really need to tighten up on the b.s. It is really holding this forum back a ton.

As far the failed test it was because of an otc dietary supplement. http://blogs.charlot...-drug-test.html

The fatigue and stress very well could be related to personal problem and nothing to with football.

Now back to what the OP was saying. You bring up a very good point, but I just dont see us being able to pick up anyone special. I wouldnt be opposed to giving up a 5th or 6th to a team loaded with 3 techs(if there even is a such a team). The rookies played a ton of snaps to start the year last year due to us starting the season with 3 healthy DT'S. Whether it be thru cuts or giving up a late round pick I certainly hope we can find someone to at least fill the void to Neblett comes back.


Also while its certainly not ideal but maybe we could see Fua and Edwards line up next to each other at times. While neither are likely to get much pressure on qb's in time, i'm sure they could open up some holes on blitzes.

OP could've meant bringing in someone who is cut. He never said brining someone by a trade

It's not like he was juicing...

Theres all sorts of over the counter supplements that are banned from the NFL and I highly doubt most random young backup players know each and every one of them. Didn't the same thing happen to Peppers his rookie year?

yeah it was ephedra which you could buy otc at the time.

of course that still resulted in seven years of juicius peppers jokes from Saints** and falcons fans.
