    Per SR 610 CC broke his arm. I guess that leaves us with Glenn Earl at SS? :gun:

    Put him back in, he's got another arm to go with all the other arm tackles I saw out there today.

    Yeah I hope that Earl gets enough reps in at Dick Smith's arm tackling drill this week.

    Pretty sure we cut Earl. I saw Barber in today once Brown was taken out.

    I saw a whole lotta Barber out there when CC went down. It wasn't pretty.

    Barber was playing a lot today. I think he's probably next up.

    Correct. Earl got cut.

    So, yeah. We've either got an old man or a rook to put in next.

    Oh, I totally thought we still had Glenn Earl, my bad.

    Sooooooo, wow, we're in trouble at SS even more than I thought. Not that CC was a lights-out SS or anything but at least he kind of was sorta serviceable for a Dick Smith defense.

    Houston, again.
    "It's only a flesh wound", he can get back in there. A SS with a cast for a club could be dangerous. Just watch some old Green Bay footage to see what Ray Nichkie (sp) did with one.:kingkong:

    SS: Demps FS: Wilson.... Demps is a sevicable safety and Wilson was once consider one of the best at FS.

    Wait, that won't happen though, it makes too much sense for Smith to consider it.

    Wasn't it Barber who on the 1st Jax TD bumped into the FB with his back because he was completely turned around on a simple run to the right?

    Because I prefer to have a link....

    I would say it would take a couple of months at least to heal. The biggest key to arm tackling is arms so hopefully RS is prepared to teach his tackling techniques to whoever will take CC's spot.

    John Lynch is available ...... I'm sure he (even at 90in a wheelchair) would be an upgrade over what we have back there.
