But I thought we were fine at DT


lol Of course we weren't ideal at DT. People just got all defensive during the draft, saying poo like "I GUESS YOU KNOW MORE THAN RIVERA THEN HUH?'. No. Coaches will always talk in coach-speak. Everything will always be slightly sugar-coated. It's time people realise this.

Pie to the next Huddle poster that can describe what a NT is and what position each Edwards brothers play and the same for what Fua and McClain play.
I can't say for sure, but surely to God google explains this poo for the uninitiated.

In a nut shell, did Fua and McClain play the same position?

I don't care if they played the same position. Fua wasn't good at his position. Krease and Shirley were better NT's. Now Shirley gone and Fua still here.

McClain was a 3 tech and we really only had Nebblett (who is gone for the 1st 4 games) and him. Now we can move some of the DE to 3 tech on passing downs. But We really only had 2 3 techs on the roster. We have 3 NT's on the roster. I would have loved if those 3 were Shirley, Edwards, and Krease. If we can cut McClain like that. Then we could have cut Fua and kept Shirley.

Also as other have said. I would have rather kept McClain over Armanti. Who is still on this roster taking space for no reason.

I knew they played different positions. Ones a Under Tackle (UT) the other a Nose Tackle (NT). What I didn't know was that once the amount is set for that position you can't cut and add more for that position. I.E. cut a QB and add a UT. (thanks MadHatter)

Fua played NT at Stanford and McClain was a UT for South Florida. Dwan is a UT, much better than McClain, so he replaced him.

I still think Fua was the worse of the two, regardless of position. Imo, McClain was better last year (although he played like crap) than Fua. This year Fua showed more in the Preseason than McClain.

The only thing I'm concerned with this move is Dwans Age. We got rid of a Younger guy who played for only one year and added a Veteran who's better but won't play for as long as the younger guy. It goes against the going young philosophy and build through the draft rhetoric that was pounded away on us when a certain vet would come available at a given position of need.

Rome wasn't built in a day, we did what we had to do. Shirley had zero potential compared to Fua.

Rivera, Hurney and Sigchi222 will sleep well tonight. I am 100% behind getting a viable 3 and letting Sione learn.

To each his own koolkat. We still cheer for the same team. Let's just all hope that cutting McClain's no-effort fat ass getting cut helps the 2012/13 team.

I predict no less than 7 "Edwards" being shouted out on defense during week one against TB.
