Against Arizona he dominated, he had eight tackles at or behind the line of scrimmage, a pass deflection, and just disrupted the game. That is when I became a huge fan of his.

In comparison, according to ESPN Jamaal Anderson had no tackles at or behind the line of scrimmage if I'm reading it right. I know he had no tackles for loss, but at the LOS? That sounds odd.

The way I understand things STFY is tackles at or behind the LOS, and STF is behind the LOS.
If John Abraham, who I think is a phenomenal pass rusher, can stay healthy all year and Jamaal Anderson figures out what he is doing, Babineaux could be a menace in the middle.

Jimmy Williams is a bum. Now it is being reported that he showed up 15-lbs. overweight. Can we move him to OLB?

Haha, what is that guys problem? I remember being so excited when we drafted him. For the longest time he was pegged to the Lions at number 9.

Apparently something in his personal life at the moment. But that hardly explains the fact that he's done nothing for two years.

I'm pretty much assuming that he's a write-off now. But there may be something salvageable, if Smith and co can straighten his head out.

Mora's love for "athletic arrogance" turned out really well, didn't it?

Turned out it was arrogance in the purest meaning: claiming falsely.

well. I'm going with Robinson. assuming Ryan wins the job (which I see happening) and Baker turns out to be a decent LT, we should have at least enough OL to give Ryan time on his blindside, and the guys on the right aren't too shabby. we could very well go 7-9 this year and Roddy and L-Rob, could get 1000yds/7TD's (Roddy) and 700yds/4TD's (L-Rob) to give us some solid WR's.

He wont be CB, he's curently the 3rd string free safety and weighs in over 230. I will hate to see it, but they'll probably cut him.

Erik Coleman. He had a 2 good years then he got in Mangini's dog house for whatever reasons. He's only 26 too.

Aside from that, I hope Babs and Jamaal break out. They NEED too
