A WHOLE PIE!

If you were Dave Gettleman, would you trade Sione Fua for a bowl of Instant Mashed Potatoes? Here are the scouting reports for both.

 

Instant Mashed Potatoes

Versus the Run: Prototypical 2-minute side dish.  Very stout against low viscosity gravy. Possess extraordinary tensile strength when left in the bowl to cool for too long. Has a good initial texture. Can knock grandma's home made taters off balance. Knows how to blend with butter, sit in its bowl and melds well with minced garlic. Holds up well against the double wood spoon mix. Lacks thickness and viscosity to effectively suck through a straw and make slurping sounds. Also, is limited to filling trays inside the school lunchroom. Sometimes has a hard time competing against creamed corn. Can get fooled when turkey is added to a menu. Needs to improve it's overall importance to the American diet. 

Versus the Pass: Lacking in the flavor without adding salt & pepper department. Will not overwhelm dinner guests with smell or tastiness. Can be a power side if combined with bacon bits and cheese. Uses a powerful bowl rush to collapse the lumps and make for a smooth blend of tater, but that's the gist of his bowl rushing ability. Does do a good job of getting it's flakes all over the kitchen counter prior to adding hot water and milk.

 

Fua

Versus the Run: Pretty much stands there and gets blocked then high fives his teammates after the play. Known as a space eater but only eats roster space. Enjoys wearing white suits, flying in G-6 aircraft, and roller derby. Stout against the run if the play is coming directly at his gap and the RB yells "I'm running at you Fua!!". Has the lateral movement of a boulder. His feet are flat tires. Good teammate.

Versus the Pass: Pretty much stands there and gets blocked then high fives his teammates after the play. From time-to-time will use his 5" vertical to bat down a shovel pass. Uses his Stanford education to his advantage. Excels at yelling "Paaaaaaasssss!!!" and "Screeeeennnnn!" to alert teammates a pass or screen is coming. Good teammate.

Fua is going to make an impact this season!

I would do that trade and let the other team keep the mashed potatoes.

Depends who we are trying to trade with... We just can't get any teams mashed potatoes.

You're giving the nastiness of instant mashed taters WAY too much credit.

That's up to the coaching staff.

Good read SCP, I enjoyed it. Plus, it made me kinda hungry.

Now, as to Fua...I don't understand how you draft a guy to play the nose when he always looks like the smallest guy on the line. It doesn't matter what his listed height and weight are, the guy is just flat undersized.

I predicted last season that he'd be out of professional football in 2 years. We'll see how camp goes, but it's just hard to believe he'll make the final 53.

Ya I don't see how he makes it unless there is an injury. We could put him on the practice squad and nobody would pick him up.
