      Oh, you won't hear me refute that. The only good thing in that part of the state is the hunting.

      What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
      they get smoked.

        I agree that Tank had more than enough chances and probably deserved to be cut a long time ago, but what if the blood tests come back negative for any "impairing" substances. Did the Bears just cut a decent DT for driving 15 miles over the speed limit?

          Pretty much, yeah.


          The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

          If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.

            And being out early in the morning one day after OTA's. He was on a short leash and this was the straw that broke the camel's back.

              I'm pretty sure he'll be suspended the whole year at this point. I have no info on this, just my guess.

                COULD COWBOYS BE INTERESTED IN TANK? by Michael David Smith

                Add the Cowboys to the list of teams that could have an interest in suspended defensive tackle Tank Johnson, who was waived by the Chicago Bears Monday.

                Matt Mosley of the ESPN Hashmarks blog reports that a member of the Cowboys organization told him that Johnson would be a "perfect fit" in new head coach Wade Phillips' 3-4 defense. The Cowboys apparently consider it a positive that Johnson has spent his entire three-year career playing in a 4-3 defense, as they think 4-3 tackles have the kind of versatility to make them good fits for Phillips' defense.

                Per Mosley, the Cowboys see Johnson as a versatile enough player to line up at nose tackle or at either of the defensive end spots. And Mosley notes that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones isn't afraid of taking chances on troubled but talented players.

                    Tank is purely a gap penetrator and would be absolutely terrible as a 3-4 NT even if he gained like 30 pounds. Historically gap penetrating DTs from Tampa 2s don't succeed as 3-4 DE's.
