Rivera wants to limit star to 30 snaps a game.

74 posts in this topic

quick math in my head suggests that's roughly half of the total snaps taken by a top 5 defense per game, which is what we're striving to be. given our sudden depth at the position that doesn't sound like a bad plan.

So half the snaps sounds good to you? I'd like to see something more like 60-65% personally.

I just keep going back to Gettleman calling him a 3 down player, lets not forget we still play some 4th downs on D.

That's great, but i won't keep going back in forth with you about 10 lbs. The guy played as high as 340lb. If the coaching staff wants him at 310 he'll be at 310. If you can't see that Star is a bigger guy than Dwan, who also hasn't played a full NFL season, who struggled when he was tired, Sorry chuck. I don't know what else to tell you.

Dwan looks just as big as Star.

Star said he's comfortable at 310 and that's where he's been listed as the last few months.

You were the one who started to fight over 20 lbs.

Star struggled not bc of his weight but bc how much much Utah played him. Same for Short. Rivera and Gettleman have been saying that for a while now.

Sounds good to me, quality over quantity.

cool man. I never said he struggled because of his weight. I said he was a big guy so rest would be good for him. don't twist my words.

we're going to be facing a lot of passing situations in our division this year. maybe i'm speaking out of ignorance here but i'd expect to see a lot of edwards/short packages on obvious passing downs, which would automatically clip star's playing time.

Ill say this, Rivera knows his defenses but it just came as a shock to me initially, kind of like when I heard kawanns name on day 2. Way too early to get all crazy over this right now.

I guess getting plays off is better than taking plays off.

There will never be enough pie and rep for putting that gif in your signature. I love you so much for that, I'm still laughing

I'm not twisting your words. You never said he was over played. So I would assume that you believed his weight was the problem.
