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


I know buddy, but as I said(obviosuly not clearly enough, so my bad) I don't see anyone special becoming available. Theres not a plethora of good 3 techs in the NFL and unless theirs an aging vet with an inflated contract out there somewhere, I don't have much faith in finding one that gets cut. If it comes down to it, I would not be upset if we give up a late pick to obtain someone who can contribute.

IF you were to find a decent 3tech through cuts it would most likely be final cuts and from a team loaded at DT. That said, it shouldn't be extremely hard, to find one at Nebletts level.

If we are goin after one, it's not going to be for a stud.
Just one who is better than McClain though he had a good game last week. There should be several at the end of the day.

Beyond McClain and Nebbles, Chandler and Kearse are the options we're looking at ATM. I'm excited to see McClain year 2 also but wouldn't mind an extra head being thrown in the mix just for the hell of it

Same people calling Neblett a cheater are probably the same type of people that call certain players "thugs" and "convicts" while they steal pens from work and cheat on their wife. But they might have played Cam in a few quarters of Madden.

As for the DT situation, so long as McClain looks good enough to hold it down for the first 4 games and Neblett looks like he can still contribute, I'll hold out on getting antsy. The defensive unit as a whole has improved: Beason & Edwards are back (funny how some of those that were rolling their eyes at Ron Edwards solving our DT problem have properly stfu), Kuechly is starting (and TD is still going to contribute via depth), Norman is looking like a baller or at the very least an upgrade over Butler/Thomas/Stanford, Nakamura might have surplanted Martin, and all of those boys on the line get that extra year of experience.

If anything, I'm more concerned about losing players to injuries before the season begins again.

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.


and yet they are so incredibly happy hes out of the division now. man... i wish we coulda seen him across from CJ. peppers doesnt have the heart put him and rucker were still so dominant and CJ is kinda similar to rucker.

I'm not sure Mcclain would get cut if he was on another team. He has some talent(enough to warrant a third round pick). I understand and saw him get abused as much as anyone last year...but of all the DT'S in the leauge how many had success in their first year or even started??

Its not like he was surrounded by a lot help either.As you know we had 3 first year starters on the d-line last year, under a new head coach, in lockout shortened season,etc.

Point is, thinking we are going to have several options from other teams cuts that will be an upgrade over Mcclain is overly optimisitc imo. While I think we can find an upgrade over the likes of Nate Chandler, how much of an upgrade is debatable at this point and wont be known until the actual cuts happen.

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.


We have already used those 2 together in the pre-season in goal line situations, and feel they would be fine in short yardage situations as well.

It is just troublesome that should something happen to McClain, we would begin playing people out of their natural position. It would be much better if we had another traditional 3-tech penetrating type to at least get us through the first 4 games (assuming Neblett turns out to be okay).

I'm sure the front office already has a list prepared of names to watch out for during cuts.

This.

There are teams with too many 3-tech DTs. Lions and Giants, plust a few more I cannot remember from an article 2 weeks ago. But there are no guarantees that these players get cut. Practice Squads and keeping an extr D-lineman are some of the ways teams try to stash young talent.

It could happen. But teams are going to explore all avenues before cutting the dead weight.

Another thing to try and use as fodder. We use a traditional 3-tech very seldom. I would say other than a base package to start a game, or for obvious running downs, we seem to be in, use a variety of guys to play D-line mode. But yeah, someone to actually push, or Zod forbid pass, McClain would be a real nice additon.

Our 3 man line can be Hardy, Edwards, and CJ. We like Kearse on passing downs, and as has been mentioned Edwads and Fua were short yardage package. We also slide Hardy inside to bring in Applebottom and Alexander. CJ as well has been shoved inside. So we do have a diverse useage of our Line. poo, when does McClain even play?

Anyone else notice it is now McClain and Fua, instead of McFua? More of a shoutout to McClain, but Fua has had some plays as well this year. McClain has flashed so far, and Fua has just shown. Improvement from last year though.

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

I wish I could be offended by this

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