A WHOLE PIE!

So I did the behind the scenes tour today at BOA and got the opportunity to talk with Mike Rucker. I asked him who's dline was better, his or the current group.

In front of the tour group he said that it was pretty even and that he would give the slight edge to this group because theyre younger and have the opportunity to dominate longer.

I asked him again on the side after the group had moved on and his answer was a bit different. He admitted that he felt his group was better mainly because of their special teams play. He talked about their ability to block kicks and punts, something we don't see from this current group. Really cool guy to talk to.

Side Note- Got a chance to go in the locker room and Cam has 60 pairs of shoes!! He has two lockers (Jimmy's old locker). Steve Smith also has two lockers (AE's old locker)

Mike is a great guy and I'm glad he's stayed involved with the organization since his departure. Neat you got to talk to him.

There were a few tailgates where he hung out with us before getting more regular football season gigs. Thoughtful, friendly and well spoken man and really enjoyed meeting fans.

Naw... Cam would toss his shoes in Jimmy's locker so Jimmy could clean them up and have them ready for the next week.

That line was always blocking field goals. I remember that tampa game. Peppers used to just smack the crap out of every kick

Wonder what the NFL record is for blocked kicks and INT for a lineman? Gotta think Pep is in the conversation

And that's the thing. It wasn't like the entire DL were FG blocking monsters, just Peppers.
