  1. Ulverston, Cumbria - UK (Lake district) 1:30 am here. In Brotherhood we RISE!
  2. UK based fan - been lurking on on this board for years - rarely post. Been a fan since the Glanville years - That red gun offense, Jerry and the black duds were a real hook. Remember Case and Tuggle owning the middle of the field on D. GREAT to see Keanu and Debo finally giving us that intimidation factor again. With Beastly off the edge and Quinns aggressive attitude to D to go with an AWESOME O - not surprised were picking up fans over here again. Helps that Osi is co-presenting the BBC coverage and gives props to the ATL (when not touting the Gmen). PERSONAL HIGHLIGHT - Seeing the Dirtybirds play 1/2 a game live at Wembley - lowlight watching them NOT play the 2nd half. Still cant believe they got a 2nd chance at that FG...
  3. Depth chart Just released - Dled not particularly close
  4. Kiwi - ask the Auzzies how S***e we are at rugby... True our coach in now an Auzzie, but still - bet you guys enjoyed that almost as much as us. As for Lancaster, he may not be the best manager/tactician but his technical coaching was First class...
  5. Gotta love that Ivan is getting some props - would be great if he could offer pass rush depth and unseat Starr/ Goodman. Mclennan is my current favorite. Realistcally look at areas where depth is suspect ; S/NB - Neasman/Poole have a shot NT - Mbu is upgradable WR - After Julio, Sanu, Hardy no one is a lock - but I know nothing of the UDFA recivers RB - Don't tell me Ward isn't nervously checking Wilds progress Then again it will probably be a complete surprise, not one of the above.
  6. I think its more likely a case of wanting to give the youngsters a chance to show what they have. UDFAs like Mclennan (DE/LB) would get less reps if Freeney signs. Neasman/Poole (NB/S) get less reps if Boykin signs. Let the young, hungry talent have a go - if they aren't up to the task then sign a vet who already knows the game and won't miss much by skipping OTAs. Now I'm not saying they are better players, but they have POTENTIAL - unlikely McLennan will ever be as good as freeney WAS, but he probably offers more special teams value now. He may even offer genuine pass rush depth, we won't know if we don't let him play. Again - if they fail, make sure you know which Vet FAs are available and buy into your philosophy...
  7. Wore 42 in college, cited Ronnie Lott as a player he liked to watch - check! He loves to hit, set the tone for the D, is smart and just wants to play ball. - Check! If he can be half the player Lott was...
  8. Check out DQs latest mini-camp presser - at 4:30 he's questioned about applauding Ivan during drills. Replies about him being an SLB with great inintial burst and pass rush ability.
  9. Check out the Interview from 4:30 - questioner mentions DQ applauding 'Ivan' - DQ responds about SAM with excellent first step and pass rush ability. Positive sign for CFA McLennan (sp?) Goes on to talk about LBs in general and Campbell's coverage 'length'.
  10. Also check out DQs latest mini camp vid. He basically says the scheme has two ILBs one strongside the other weak - but they are interchangable. Essentially we have two ILB not a MLB & WLB. The main difference is coverage responsiblity on TE/ RB. Also goes on to say SLB and LEO are closely related as both are LOS players (Vic is a OLB who may play SLB at times).
