As already stated, we're two practices into tc and they haven't even put pads on. Star is going to be a great DT for us and Amini is quickly becoming a powerhouse for our run game. We can't just give into despair and write any player off at this early point....Star could start river dancing when the ball is snapped and he'd still be an upgrade from Fua.....

i love that there's already an intense competition between silatolu and the death star. peppers made gross better, cam and luke are making each other better... intense competition with elite guys is going to bring the best out of everyone. skill begets skill. this is nothing but good news.

Youd be a fool to judge Star before the pads are on.

Yep, Peppers and Jenkins made our O-Line better. They became straight up maulers in 2003. Amini is gonna make Death Star better and Star is gonna make the Tongan Kaiju better.

You guys can make fun of it all you want but I'm really not happy about our 1st round pick being owned by a guy who wouldn't even be starting on most teams. Hopefully Star just needs to get acclimated though.


Are you on crack

Great write- up swag. Love to hear Amini looked good today. He'll need to be solid this year for our offense to realize its potential.

Wait ... they sell $2 beers at TC? Best observation I have read so far.


That settles it. Spartanburg, here I come.

Star is a bust


Take a breath. Star is going to have a learning curve.

The $2 beers is just on back to football night. The rest of training camp they just have low quality expensive hotdogs and warm diet pepsi.

 - I loved the Amini pick last year and thought then that he has Pro Bowl potential. I think he'll show that this year now that he's started to make the adjustment from D2 to the NFL.

 

 - How long before Hixon starts taking reps away from Ginn at WR3?

 

 - I hope Captain ends up starting for us. I saw so many projections of him being a nickel guy and I never understood why since he's shown he can be a decent to solid starter, if obviously undersized. I'd honestly feel better about Josh Thomas at CB2 than Florence or Norman.
