Default Its time for Casey to tap out

They are pushing his fat ass all over theplace. If McClendon had such a great camp, why are we not seeing more of him?

Maybe he didn't, this defense hasn't added much defensively in a few years

And we might want to add Keisel to this list.
He looks immobile, gets no push, and is slow to react.
Sad but seems true.

our DL in general is not playing as well as DL units in the past.

But their job is not to get pressure on the QB - its our LBs and I don't see the pressure that I am used to seeing

Big Snacks has lost it big time, he is fat and relies on being fat to make a difference. LeBeau needs to think about playing some of the younger players like Heyward and T'eamu (SP).

i had assumed mclendon straight up won the starting job in the pre-season. i wonder if the team has been giving hampton a free pass?

i agree that keisel pretty much seems to be a non factor all year.

young players? Why the heck not - even if all it did was give them a little spark I'd say it is worth it. It cannot get worse in terms of being beat off the line of scrimmage or getting push. It seriously cannot get any worse. SERIOUSLY. DO IT.

When he survived the offseason cuts I think it was pretty obvious something was up. He makes way too much money to just be here for the hell of it. If he's really our best option, we're in trouble.

Because Dick's defense is too complicated. It takes at least 4 years to even figure out which position you play in it.

I am tired of LeBeau, sorry if I am in the minority but I think that ship has run its course.

Maybe it's time for LeBeau to simplify things for the younger guys.
