Tuggle got some chances at OLB about a week ago when Mercilus went down and has been showing improvement. Reggie Herring has been talking up Tuggle & Jefferson -- everyone just seemed to focus on Willie.

So was the second pass to Jennings in the Bears game.
Wait, Jennings played for the Bears, never mind.

Herring has recently been talking Tuggle up but... I didn't think Tuggle had performed THIS well. Kind of an eye-opener.

Can't wait!

Default Re: Training camp 2013

Looking at Tuggles college stuff, he has some good burst coming off the edge. If both he and Willie make it hard to cut them, I don't know what the Texans are going to do.

It's going to be tough to cut guys that have shown great ability and keep guys who haven't shown anything.

Going to be interesting to watch.

(on CB Brandon Harris’ status) “No, I don’t think Brandon will play. As a matter of fact, he probably won’t even make the trip. He’s just got a hip flexor and that’s something that can get well in a few days. I feel like if we throw him out there, we’re probably going to set him way back. I think we’ll take the smart route here and we’re going to leave a certain group of guys home and let them rehab.”

(on how OLB Sam Montgomery looked in practice and if he’ll play) “All he did was scout team stuff. He didn’t do anything that pertains to the game. It’s good to have him back. There’s no plan to play him right now. Hopefully, he’s back next week and playing against Miami.”

(on if he’s ready to see K Randy Bullock get some game action) “Yeah, I am. Randy’s been a little up and down in camp, but he did finish the other day very, very strong. I know one thing, our team believes in him. He works very hard, but he’s our guy, so going to get a lot of kicking in here in the next four weeks.”

Kinda my point. Our eyes on the field are just repeating what the coaches are saying, not what they are seeing.

Alotting only a couple of days rest for a hip flexor is like dumping a cup of water into an empty swimming pool and saying that it is full.

Justin Tuggle has a father by the name of Jessie Tuggle.

If you ever followed the Falcons or live in the Atlanta area, you've probably heard of him..



If he's anything like his father, we've found a quality player.

Him, Jefferson, Bouye, and Dennis Johnson..

If they all contribute this year you've found 4 quality contributors in undrafted free agency.

Not bad scouting team, not bad.

Hopkins playing well, Swearinger looking like a veteran out there, Chris Jones showing that he's got some pass rush skills, Quessenberry a future piece to our offensive line, Bonner a raw project with PLENTY of upside, Ryan Griffin playing great as our #3 TE, and it's possible that Montgomery could come around.

This is obviously pretty premature (since we haven't seen them yet), but this looks to be a pretty good draft/undrafted class.

Justin Tuggle interestingly enough played QB (considered a dual threat QB) since HS, but changed to LB 1 1/2 years prior to graduation. His reason for for switching is even more interesting. He was the back up QB to Colin Klein during a time that Klein was burning it up. So he switched to LB for greater opportunity to play.

I tuned into the thread late and I was thinking "Tuggle? WTF? That dude has to be in his 50s!" LOL.

Jessie Tuggle was a helluva player.

Here's a breakdown of Justin Tuggle vs. Miami

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rck2Xgo0mSk

He is flying all over the place at the beginning of the video. Has some technique issues and probably needs to get bulkier but he has potential. As far as our LB position i'm curious if he could get more playing time as an ILB. We'll need to wait and see how he performs.

While all of this is fine and dandy,

None of this will matter if Schaub cant improve/stay healthy.

Looks like he's got a lot of experience rushing from a 2 point stance. I didn't see a lot of speed, or power, but he uses leverage well, he hustles, got an eye for the ball, & understands disrupting a play is sometimes as good as making the stop, or the tackle, or the sack.

He's got the build of a QB, or an in the box safety.

I wasn't too impressed with his pass rushing, or his abilty to set the edge against the run, but I did like his awareness of where the ball was & his ability to navigate through traffic. Looks more like an ILB to me, or more like an In the box safety unless he can put on some weight.

He looked pretty good off the edge to me. I have not seen an OLB already on the roster show the burst off the edge that he or Jefferson showed in college. That's really ideal for a weakside pass rusher.

Not a necessity, but it's a huge plus.
