Default Frank Okam

Today's game was his first significant action. What was everyone's opinion of his play? We are entirely too soft up the middle and if he can develop into our future space eating DT that's one less need our future DC needs to fill next season.

I think he earned himself a spot in the rotation the rest of this season. Play him ahead of Zgonina if you want to give the young guys some time. We know what we have in Zgonina, the rest of the guys are youngsters that need their reps and he's not so much better than any of them that we NEED to play him ahead of a rookie like Okam who might give us something different.

You must be really tired... Okam is a D-lineman not O-line and since this season is pretty well toast, I think it high time we let the young guys get reps so we can see just how bad or good out talent level really is.

Yep, I'm on that ship.........I want to see Adibi, more of Okam (though really Bulman wouldn't be bad either), want to see more of Molden (ALOT MORE OF MOLDEN), maybe work in some Barber.....pretty much it's getting about that time where this team needs to start evaluating players.....although the realist in me knows Kubiak won't do that, because deep down (regardless what the majority on this board thinks) he knows if he totally falls on his face and barely wins any more games.......his job is on the line. If I was Kubes....I'd take a page out of JDR's book (you know Jack Del Rio) and pull a "it's my coordinators fault" and fire Richard Smith on the spot before the season ends. JDR has gone through multiple offensive coordinators.........Kubiak can atleast turn one crappy D coordinator into this city's scapegoat.

Bullman not starting is a crime.

Bulman's not the starter in name, but he's getting starter snaps. I'm willing to bet he's been on the field more than Weaver lately.

Yeah, Smith should be locked out of the office this morning. Find out what Frank Bush looks like as your D coordinator. There is no way you can stroll out there with no changes made next week. And Im not totally blaming Smith, but its the 1st logical step.

As to your question, we need two real space eaters, not our diet fatties. I want two Man Mountains in there, with your smaller DT's comming in on passing downs. We need to make a choice, small and athletic, or big and stout. No more small and unathletic.

Is there a reason why Weaver plays at all between Bulman and Cochran both being better players?

Molden is too valuable on special teams to make an every down player besides Reeves is great...let's see no smiley with it's eyes rolling clear out of it's head...

Which is fine but to not reward the mans perseverance and hard play by giving him the starting spot over that fat sack of lard Weaver is indeed a crime. Telling a man he's the starter is a way to show him and his teammates that hard work pays off and that a ridiculous free agent contract isn't enough to keep you at the top of the depth chart.

Weaver should be on the street talking about how he used to play in the NFL.

Or on the Raiders.

I just wish that they would go ahead and axe Smith so that we could get a look at what Bush can do, so we can decide whether we want to get somebody new or stick with some hot Bush.

Bulman not being the starter, and Cochran not getting getting as much PT as he should is just a crime. I would still rather see Fred Bennett get torched than Jacques Reeves and wherever the hell Molden disappeared to, he needs to start getting reps on the defense, not special teams.
