Question for some of teh Tiger-Cat fans; who good are y'alls DBs? I'm just still amazed that a DE canrecord 11 sacks while lining up a yard of the ball.

Actually, Tim had 14 sacks last year and our other Rush End Joe Montford had 13. Maybe the i yard off the ball might help an end because it gives you a bit of room to make a move on the defensive line. But you still have to be very fast to get to the QB especially a mobile QB which most of them are up here. Doug Flutie rewrote the record books up here as did his brother Darren (who just retired a few years ago from the Tiger Cats after becoming the Tiger Cat All-Time leading receiver)

As far as the DB's are concerned, we've had some great ones in the CFL over the years. It's not an easy job up here with the wide field, mobile QBs and deep end zones. Pressure on the QB is of key importance up here. A guy like Doug Flutie can make DB's look real bad due to the time he bought himself. He still has the knack of doing that in San Diego as you people can see.

We still shake our heads at Buffalo keeping Johnson over Flutie. Terrible move!

By the way, Darren Flutie is now a Colour Commentator during the football season

the dreaded canadian "u"s have invaded our board! we better break out the snow shovels before the "eh"s show up

hehe, Flutie hasnt had near as much success in the NFL. As NFL QBs go.. he below par. Hopefully Cheatwoods speed and pass rushing abilities will translate into the NFL more smoothly.

Funny you should mention snow !

We're in the middle of a snowstorm right now

Here's a few photos of Doug Flutie (#2) during the Grey Cup in the late 90's which was played here in Hamilton during a snowstorm. He played for the Toronto Argonauts at the time. Toronto won the Cup.

Thats what we need to help Peek...I bet this guy could really shake up Manning...I was wondering if he tried out for Denver, why didn't they sign him???

I have seen some footage about this guy and he is a beast. However keep in mind the competition in the CFL and NFL is quite a bit different. If we sent seth payne to the CFL I bet he would be a *Offensive Linemen of the year*. Now we gotta see what this man can do in the real league. I have a feeling he will be flat his first year but maybe be a difference maker in the following year.

Hi Texans ... another Hamilton TigerCat fan here. It looks like you have a few of us interested in your team now that you have signed Tim Cheatwood. From my perspective, you have a very good rush end with lots of speed and tough as nails. I am a bit concerned with his size however. He is somewhat smaller than what you NFL'ers are used to seeing at that position. And he plays the game with a lot of intensity that often gets him into trouble with the officials.
Anyway, I wish him well in his new home. And I wish the Houston Texans well.

He won't play the line in our scheme. He will be an OLB.

Another ticat fan here,that will be watching the texans this year if tim makes the team.But one thing I would like to say is our field is 110 yrds by 65 yrds, so the bigger you are the harder it is to play on a field that big, so maybe this payne guy could be off lineman of the year, but that is if he does not have a heart attack on the big field.

i see him following the Peek method. Getting alot of time on special teams, and some obvious pass situations, maybe 3-5 plays a game until he proves himself.

Clark Haggans went through the same thing with the steelers and is now looking like he has won the starting job and is going to be a very good player.

Default Cheatwood to play Fullback????

If you look on the roster for the Texans, they know have Tim Cheatwood listed as a fullback. Anyone know if this is true?

All are journeyman free agents and I don't think any were drafted except for Sloan Thomas.

Scates was with the Pats in the preseason and cut.

Davis, Dunn, Matthews, and Narcisse were all with the Texans in training camp and preseason '04 and later released. Davis, Dunn and Suber spent time on the Texans practice squad this past season.

Harrison spent time with the Eagles in '02 and '03. He was later claimed and released by the Packers in '04.

Moretti was in Browns camp in '04 and later released.

Most of these guys are camp fodder and some may be NFLE candidates. Of the guys on the list that I've seen, I've been most impressed with Anthony Dunn and Sloan Thomas.
