    I think Deljuan made some awesome plays yesterday. It was definitely a coming out party for him. He only had 3 tackles and 1 assist, but 2 were TFL's.

    Just thought I'd spread the love around a little. :)

    Make him the starter. Okoye and TJ don't do well together anyway.

    I don't think we need anymore DT's, and he is one of the biggest reasons.

    For the few plays he's in he shows up. Much like Anthony Maddox did when we had him a few years back.

    He's earned the right to start.....

    He and Bulman are earning pay checks and some vets should be sweating.

    Bulman has the heart of a beast! I'm liking him more and more each game. I love it when a "nobody" shows up and becomes a star! I just love watching that guy play ball.

    Deljuan's on his way also! These two guys play with heart and soul. A good addition to our D. JMO!!

    Yes, he was a beast in THAT game, but has yet to earn his way to true Beastliness. If he can do it day in and day out, then he'd be nominated for Beasthood.

    That's awesome, SheTex. The Heart of a Beast! That has a nice ring to it and the title fits Bulman well. :cool:

    I think that Travis Johnson really gets pushed around too much and should only be played as a backup if at all. I'd rather see Robinson start for at least the next game.

    I think Nading (#72) needs to be added to that group too. He's seen quite a bit of action in the past few games. I've seen him lined up as a LB on some defensive plays, and there's been times when he's blitzed & others when he dropped back in coverage. Also, even though he was playing with a knee injury he came very close to blocking a punt against the Titans near their own endzone.

    I think Deljuan actually leads our team in TFL with 6. In his limited playing time that is impressive. TFL do not count sacks btw in which case obviously Mario would be the leader.

    robinson's tackle for a big loss was really something to see. he manhandled the guard and i dont think i've ever seen a fullback bounce off someone like that. it looked like throwing a nerf ball into a brick wall, the fullback bounced straight down lol.

    No clue who he is, by I knew his name by the end of the game - and said as such to those sitting by me. He came up huge a few times.

    4th and 1 on a warm afternoon night,
    kill the Quarterback, kill the Quarterback
    Quarterback bark, though he bite,
    kill the Quarterback, kill the Quarterback
    slip by his Center, break his neck,
    then his pocket I start to wreck,
    got no reason, what the heck!
    kill the Quarterback, kill the Quarterback,
    C-I-L-L the Quarterback

    My paraphrase is compliments of Eddie Murphy's Mr Robinson's Neighborhood.

    Agree. I'd hope that a demotion to backing up a guy who wasn't even drafted might in some way shame him into playing better. Travis remains a slug and useless for the most part. Sometimes he doesn't even look like he's trying.


    Edit: That post above mine is so good I think an avatar might be on the way.

    I remember that .... did not recall it was Eddie Murphy. That goes all the way back to high school for me. Guy in school got busted for plagiarism because he used it as his own work.

    Rep for the reference.

    I understand that TJ has not turned out to be the top tier DT that he was drafted to be, but I wouldn't call him a slug or useless. He's still one of, if not the best DT currently on our roster. Sure, he get's beat a lot, but AO and Zgonina get beat more often than TJ

    Honestly, Okoye should be getting ragged on just as much if not more than TJ.

    I know stats don't mean much, but I figure I'd post their tackling stats anyways. FWIW

    Tim Bulman: 17 Total, 11 Solo, 6 Asst
    Travis Johnson: 23 Total, 18 Solo, 5 Asst
    Amobi Okoye: 17 Total, 11 Solo, 6Asst
    Deljuan Robinson: 25 Total, 17 Solo, 8 Asst
    Jeff Zgonina: 17 Total, 11 Solo, 6 Asst

    TJ is two years ahead of Amobi in experience and 5 years older than him. There's no excuse for how little Travis Johnson does. He's just a bum, or as I like to call him a slug. 2 sacks in four years while camping in the middle of an absolutely terrible run defense for four years isn't anything to be proud of. Travis doesn't stop the run and Travis doesn't rush the passer. What exactly does he do? The answer is not much. I'd be fine with his production if he was a 3rd rounder where he belonged but he's a first rounder and we passed on Derrick Johnson to take this big blubbery sack of nothing.

    I don't think we've ever pulled a DL player off the street who didn't play harder than TJ.
