Default Foreman vs Polk

Hey all, I saw that Dashon Polk got the nod to fill in for Foreman in the Tennessee game. So my questions are, how do you guys feel he did in the game and how does he measure up to Foreman as the starter next to Sharper?

According to the Injury Report, Foreman is questionable again so we might get a look at Polk again this Sunday. What ever happened to the Wong at ILB experiment?

I personally would like to see the lineup as:

Wong--Babin--Sharper--Peek

I've TIVO'd the last few games...and I've seen a lot of #56 tyring to catch up to a reciever.

aj can answer that question better than anyone. My feelings were he was great, he was all over the place and in on all plays. I watched the game over again and he was in on all the plays and really working that position, hes just a little younger and maybe not as fast .

The best was in the GB game when Theisman used the pass trak and it showed the ball go right over Foreman's head as he was falling backwards. Theisman said something like "you can see the vapor trail knock Jay Foreman over."

Polk did play pretty well, but i want to see the wong in teh middle experiment be utilized at least one series. And to be honest if im a coach and wong said he didnt want to play in the middle, then he isnt a team player. i want to see peek on the field more, and between him rushing from the right and babn closing the pocket from the left there wouldnt be much room for the QB to move

Polk seemed to do okay out there, but he did appear to be lost at times. I recall one play in the first half where it looked as if Polk was confused about his responsibility before the Titans snapped the ball. He walked over to Sharper and it looked as if he was asking who his man was, and he wasn't quite set when the ball was snapped. Fortunately it was a running play that the Texans stopped for a 2 or 3 yard gain. I think it's entirely acceptable that he be a little confused out there while starting for the first time this year. They tried the Wong experiment in Denver I believe, and it didn't work out to well, but then again the entire team looked horrible. I wouldn't mind seeing them try it again, but Polk did a pretty good job out there last week. I'd like to see how he does in his second start this year.

Generally I agree with you, but, in this case Wong had other offers for ILB positions that wouldn't have been as tough as coming to an expansion team and chose the Texans because he was told he would be ROLB. He was actually a team player for two years by playing LOLB. IMO he has been very solid this year--there are certainly players that would be higher on the need list for replacement.

I think that having 13 tackles and a fumble recovery show that he did pretty well for a first-time starter.
