Heard this morning that he was 100% after shoulder surgery but evidently not.

Fins fans were surprised to see him go and say he is a smash mouth run stopper, but a bit of a liability against the past.

One of best if not the best typo of all time! That was great man and the funny thing is that it is so true! Rep coming your way.

Seriously though, I like this signing because this guy has played under Phillips and not only will he can start for us if needed, but he can teach the other guys what's required to play lb in a 3-4. Good signing and I finally feel we have addressed every major area of concern. Now I hope everything pans out right for us.

The report I quoted must have be erroneous because I see Sharpton making tackles in the pictures of the 8/6 morning practice posted by BullPen, and Sharpton's name is no longer listed on the injury report.

I was thinking he was signed because of Cush's knee.
Please I beg you, stop calling out anymore players to have a breakout season, pretty soon nobody will be left.

Back to Dobbins, who I have no doubt will make the Texans 53 man roster. He is a Wade Phillips, 3-4 ILB with five years NFL experience from 2006 draft class (notice any trends here?). He should take some pressure off Cushing & DeMeco. Means Bentley is gone for sure don't know about Adibi but he seems more of a 4-3 WLB like Diles who is also gone. Tim should really help plug up the middle & shutdown the run, although he can flash some inside rush. Temperament along lines of Watt & Brooks good motor/work ethic & very productive. Very good, under rated signing getting the BL seal of approval

Hopefully, your description is accurate. But I would still have liked to have seen more than 1 sack in 2009 and 1 sack in 2010........2 sacks in a 5 year period, from an ILB.

Sometimes you just have to go on a leap of faith. I wish to have more resources & time to study film, ala 76Texan. I must admit sometimes make trigger responses based off small sample sizes of game film, but generally its not rocket science, unlike your vast knowledge of the medical field. I'm just reaffirming this may seem like incidental signing for depth purposes but this kid can play, knows Wades system, is a baller & will be a valued member of the team moving forward, just kinda big news for us homers
