    Just curious. You were impressed with Trent Brown back when he was with San Francisco right? A 7th round pick who earned a starting job as RT.

    His combine is very similar to Davenport. He eventually grew into a decent LT for a Super Bowl Champion. What did you see in Trent Brown that you don't see in Davenport?

    According to Wikipedia, Trent Brown is currently the heaviest player in the NFL.

    I've noticed with Steelbtexan, whenever he doesn't like someone, he will spew negative remarks 24/7 about them.

    There's nothing no one can say that will convince him otherwise. Davenport can become all pro this season. And dude will still hate on Davenport for whatever mistake he makes this season.

    Not true, I told you last yr Davenport sucked. I'm telling you that again this yr. Why? Because he doesn't have the athletic ability to play LT and we saw how bad he was at RT. If you want Watson to get hurt again then start Davenport at LT.

    I liked Brown coming out I had him rated as a 5th/6th rd draft pick and figured he would end up playing OG. He was/is more athletic than I thought he would be for a man his size. This type of athleticism for a man that size with that kind of power is rare. Brown can play LT as we saw last yr but with his size/power he will be a great RT. You should pickup Jacobs in FF drafts with him running behind Hudson/Gabe Jackson/Brown. Huge guys that can move people off of the LOS.

    How do you know he sucks this season without any football being played?

    And like I said when you don't like a player this is what you do.

    But you have stated numerous times that you don't know how to judge OL talent

    Probably wrong thread but OB yesterday had some interesting comments regarding the OL. Said the DL was getting under their pads in drills. Said the hardest thing to teach a young player is that this is a N-S league, not an E-W one. He emphasized the importance of downhill run blocking. Will be interesting to see cleaning this up in TC. Hopefully Davenport just needed time to make this adjustment. Dude has the physical tools. He’s one of our biggest OLmen but seems to have no body fat. Great wingspan. Will be fun to watch in TC. Otherwise I’m fast becoming a Tashaun Gipson fan. Good dude.

    Nope, I said I dont know how to judge CB talent.

    Atleast I have a poor track record of judging CB talent.

    2. Bears- $51.5M
    3. Chiefs- $50.8M
    4. Browns- $50.1M
    5. Saints-$49.7M
    6. Texans- $48.8M (includes Clowney)
    7. Cowboys- $47.2M

    Includes Clowney meaning franchise tag spend?

    Any news on Cal McNair and his thoughts on the clusterfukk that was his team last night? The media should ask him repeatedly what his thoughts were on the preparations or lack there of for the game against the Cowboys, and if he’s not embarrassed. That ought to get his blood pumping!

    If you’re Cal McNair, how do you feel after watching Game 1? Write it off as just blown assignments, or have a talk with the coaches and let them know they had better clean this mess up?

    Cal McNair was reportedly angry about the way the game against the Eagles ended last year, and this game against the Saints pretty much went the same way. I wonder what is going through his head right now?

    I would sit BOB down after he had a chance to watch the tape and ask a few questions

    What did you learn?
    What are you going to do differently?
    What changes do you have planned?
    What help do you need of me?

    If I get dumb ass answers we have a hard coaching session. If my team, they looked better prepared, game was called better, but still coaches are not up to the talent level we have yet and are holding us back. So I would really be looking for some honest answers on coaching changes he would like to make. If they are the empty answers he gives to the press like I have to do better, I get irate

    I’m loving it! Shows Cal McNair ain’t screwing around and just wasting time like his old man would by keeping scrubs around that will just keep costing us games. Now, if he also applies this to the coaching staff, O’Brien and Crennel’s arses must be clenched 24/7. Do your job or GTFO!

    OB is going ask for a timeout to collect his thoughts and throw a challenge flag against the fact that he in the hot seat.

    Cal is going to over rule him and find that the ruling on the field stands, his job is on the line.

    OB is penalized a weeks worth of pay.
