For me, old habits die hard, so. . .The serious question for me is, do we take these coaching staff comments at face value or what?
Got burned too many times by GP….during the final decade I finally figured out that if he was happy and saying good things at this point, then we would hugely suck all season.
Conversely, if he said we had been awful and needed a lot of work, we would most likely be pretty awesome.
From general observations over the years, interior DL are more athletic than the OL. So, at his size, if he cannot make a push for the 2 deep by now on the OL, then probably not going to hold my breath that he'll contribute to the DL ... But hopefully staff gives him a solid look in the Tarleton game, Sept 10.
Tony and several of those wide body/Fire plugs, Curly Culp/Ted Washinton/Warren Sapp/etc were successful because they were quick, not fast, but quick!How, “athletic,” do you think was Tony Siragusa? Not disputing your general point, but sometimes a big wide immovable fireplug in the middle of the defense is a great starting point.
Oh for sure. Not even suggesting otherwise. Will be interesting nonetheless.
