    Yeah he's still firmly behind Hoyer as the backup and I expect that to continue until the very least next year. They did cut Crompton though so it looks like they're trying to get him as many reps as possible for a 3rd stringer

    • lights contract details are in.... 2 years 12 mill with 7 guaranteed.

      not sure how i feel about this to be honest with you. we overpaid imo to keep our guy here, but its necessary if we wanna keep the golden boy upright

          For 3 million for 1 year... wow.

          I really wonder if Belichick plans to play a 43 defense... because Lawson would have been a huge improvement over Rob Ninkovich.

          • Yeah, I'm surprised how cheap Lawson came for Cincinnati. I wonder if it's a similar situation to the deal we signed Leigh Bodden to originally, where he had the option of signing a multi-year deal, but it wasn't worth as much as he was hoping for, so he decided to sign a one-year deal to try and cash in next offseason.

            • At this point Matt Roth makes so much sense it's almost assuredly not going to happen.

                  • I guess there's one really positive thing about switching defensive schemes (well, there are a lot), and that's the fact that we have two first round picks which means that we have a shot at Quinton Coples. I'd love to see him line up next to Wilfork:
                    Cunningham - Haynesworth - Wilfork - Coples

                    Go F yourself, Rex Ryan.

                    • In a 4-3, I'd like to get peoples impression of Spikes in the middle and moving Mayo to the outside. He's fast enough (4.51 before the draft) but is it smart to move an All-Pro to a new position.

                      I think so. He's got great football IQ and is a great athlete. (I never use the word great about players but Mayo truely is one of the greats. We're lucky to be watching him now).

                      I think Spikes is going to be a real force in the middle and in a 4-3, Spikes has 2 monsters in front of him. I can't see Wilfork or Mayo allowing Haynesworth to dog it on the field. I hope Haynesworth feels he has something to prove because that's the only way we'll get anything from him.

                      I also like the idea of using Guyton on the outside. (He was faster before his draft than Mayo...same draft). Our team would be a lot faster with Cunningham and Moore at ends. Maybe that gets us a pass rush.

                      I like Moore and Cunningham was a 4-3 end in college (for part of the time).

                      I'd like to chat about this if anyone's out there.

                      • I really don't think whatever we're doing schematically will be that much of a black and white thing.

                        • I think a lot of what you will see "different" is shifting the linemen a few spots and moving the LBs slightly to fill the new gaps.

                          It won't be a huge change.

                          The difference between a "34" and "43" front is typically what gaps you are responsible for, what help you have behind you, and what techniques you use. But even that can get really really vague. Lots of teams use a 34 look to a 43 defense. Some use a 43 look to simulate a 34 defense on some downs.

                            I think ROP posted this already in the FA thread but Pats are looking at M.Roth right now!!!
                            This excites me in two ways:
                            1) An awesome OLB for us
                            2) Makes me feel better about us staying in the 34 as our base D

                            • Matt Roth is a middle of the pack starter at OLB.


                              ....it's a massive upgrade.
