    so Gocong is pretty much going to be Terrell Suggs?
    Wish List at 19:

    1. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
    2. Chris Williams
    3. Kenny Phillips
    4. Devin Thomas

      Gocong is going to be a package player to start with, and they'll increase his responsibilities as the season goes on. He won't be an every down player right away. His role could be similar to Terrell Suggs' in his rookie year.

        I see that as a very likely possibility. We will slowly rely less and less on Dhani (YES) and more and more on Gocong. Maybe Gocong will be starting mid-way through the season, and he will prove to the doubters that he will be a success in our defense as a SAM.

          It would be very nice for Gocong to allow us to phase out older players and rely on yet another draft pick. I'm not holding my breath, though. Gocong has proven nothing in the pros yet. He is flat unproven.

            He is unproven, but I have heard nothing but good news from the FO since he came here in last year's draft.

              I have heard nothing from the FO about Gocong, other than that he was being IR'd his rookie year. That was probably for the best, though. He wouldn't have played much, if at all. I expect CG to do well this season and to be an impact player.

                I also think he will be a great impact player this year. As for hearing nothing, when he first arrived, our FO was enamored (Pretty sure they used that exact word) with the intelligence of both Gocong and Gaither. The FO liked the athleticism that Gocong posessed, along with his football intelligence and playing speed, even though he only played in practices. After he went on IR, little was heard of him. But in the recent months, I have seen many reports that he is working hard in the weight room, bulking up, studying tape, and impressing the coaches and FO. It still remains to be seen if that all will translate into the game, but my gut has been telling me that this guy will do something special for the Eagles.

                  If you could post some links to these reports, that would be really good for the Eagles forum.

                    You seem to contradict yourself. You say he won't be an impact player, but you also say your gut is telling you that Gocong will do something special. I think we both expect the same thing: solid overall play and some big plays from the SAM LB spot. Gocong is that player who will deliver.

                      The only one that has come out recently is the one that was about Heckert and how Gocong will play both DE and SAM, but the others are a few months old, and I doubt I would be able to find them, I will give it a try though. I remember reading one in the beginning of January about Gocong, but I doubt that is still up and I could find it. I will see if I can find it.

                        The first sentence in that post says I ALSO think he will be an impact player.

                          Eh, whatever. We agree. Gocong will help the defense in a variety of ways in 2007. Of course, it is dependent upon other draft picks and his health.

                            I do agree, I really hope he is able to do what we are thinking he is capable of.

                              With Takeo in the mix that will give us a lot of freedom to use Gocong in a variety of ways. Having that freedom will really make our defense diverse and effective.

                                I can't wait. Depending on how this off-season works out, we may have a solid group of LBs for the first time in a long time. I still think we will draft a LB early though, becuase Spikes is over 30, and isn't getting any younger. Our defense could be very diverse a deceptive next year witht this acqisition and the development of the rest of out LBs. Spikes could play either of the OLB spots for us, so just wait to see what we can do.
