    Came into my store today (I work in wireless off Kirby), he is VERY big and very nice.

    One of my customers asked him if he was going to start with Myers out, he didn't give a direct answer, just smiled and said he doesn't want any injuries on the team.

    He is the biggest, tallest Center we have. Such a critical position, if Chris can't make it, who goes in?

    Probably Chris White but I'm hoping that Antoine shows enough to take that spot.

    I had my hat signed by Caldwell at All-Access. I told him that he had a future here annd he was going to upsurp Meyers. He said nah nah. He's just glad to be here and he was going to do the best he can. I said I'm SERIOUS. Right there... he had a twinkle in his eye that I'll never forget. It was when I knew he came to play some serious NFL football.

    Antoine Caldwell. FTW.

    He had that same twinkle tonight. He's been in the store a few times (there are a lot of players that come in). We usually don't say anything to them, but if a customer does, we lean in .. hard :smiliedance:

    I have been saying it since we drafted him - Caldwell will take that job early this season. The coaches will not be able to keep him off the field.

    Woo hooo!!

    Hate to see Brisiel get hurt, but we finally get a 1st Team ALL SEC
    lineman on the field!!! He's guaranteed to get 1 inch of push next to Eric
    Winston!

    I dunno, I would have thought a 3rd rounder with all the hype some fans gave him would have been able to beat out a 2nd stringer by now. I'm hopeful he does well...

    There was a third rounder the coaches were nervous about playing and didn't start the first couple games last year, and we all know how that turned out!!!!!

    Molden couldn't get past Bennett and no-look Reeves!

    Would you not agree that RB has greater success/bust ratio than a guard? I don't think coaches were nervous about Caldwell. He simply did not beat out the guys ahead of him.

    Moulden has had injuries. Bennett looked good until this season when he fell apart. Reeves was the best CB last season and based on his play first game back will be again this year.

    Why is Studdard starting ove Caldwell? McClain recently said coaches think Studdard is playing very well.

    Agreed nor did I say it was. I think QB, RB, LT and LDE have highest boom/bust.

    Why would he be playing on ST if he was injured?

    I considered DT but did not place it in most likely to boom/bust. I considered CB and WR also.
