Ryans wasnt great in coverage prior to his achillies injury. I dont see Wade changing his scheme , if they are in nickle the extra DB replaces the MLB.
Personel depends on down and distance.

I think the only way Ryans stays on the field in those 2nd/3rd and long situations is if Cushing gets injured , and I dont think any of us want to see that.


If they see fewer 2nd/3rd and long situations , sure he will be on the field more .... that probably translates to teams putting up more points and fewer W's for our Texans (unless they can out score teams).

It's the money. They can't get past the money.
In a way yes .... but like I said above: If the Texans arent up against the salary cap struggling to find money to resign their key FA's , we arent having this conversation.
Ryans contract is one of the few thats large enough that a restructure would net them significant cap space.

Thats no knock on Ryans or his play at all .... Just simply looking for the most reasonable options to free up that capspace needed to keep Foster , MW , Myers , Briesel & Dreessen as well as sign any draft picks.

Pointing out he's on the field ~40% of the time is just rationalizing the cost for the production.

I think bumping Glover down as a LB type player helped our pass defense out a lot.

I don't see the reward of leaving Demeco in third & long. Even if he gets back to full strength, he's never been great against the pass. I'd much rather have glover playing that nickel LB position with McCain in the slot than any other line-up I've seen.

I still don't think Demeco will see many 3rd and longs unless Cushing is hurt or needs a breather...

You posted this one after my last reply .... But thats what Im getting at. Just using his contract to free up cap money to use elsewhere. No knock at all on Demeco ... its just the most obvious contract to rework to achieve the teams goals.

By the way , his cap hit is $8.2m and thats without any incentives (if there are any) according to the calculations I did when I first mentioned him being a candidate for restructure several months ago.

I agree with that 101%. That was one of the best adjustments Wade Phillips made to the Texans defense ...

AND Urlacher actually earned his paycheck last season. I love Demeco but he has to take a pay cut, its just business
Imagine if the Bears thought like that after the 2009 season After extending him in 2008. Or after the 2004 season.

Often times they both came off the field with Antonio Smith moving inside , while MW was healthy he would move to more of a 4/3 DE role. After MW's injury Barwin became the DE while A.Smith moved inside.
