Default Hampton out vs. Ravens

Just got a text from KDKA saying Casey Hampton is out due to a groin injury. 3 starters out, 2 on the D-line. not good. I'm still confident we will be alright.

That #93 (I forget his name) who backed up Casey during the pre-season and also has seen some plays is someone who I'm impressed with. He hussels to the ball and he's made some plays for us during the pre-season.

I'm not too concerned with the D-line. Kerskey is going to replace Hoke and he's not bad.

And we got big ol' Aaron Smith still. :D

We didn't have Hampton for periods last week and the Defense still held the Eagles.

I have to admit, Kirschke and Eason have played admirably so far filling in for Kiesel. Didn't Kirschke lead in tackles last week? Here's to Hoke stepping up for Hampton.

why would kirschke replace hoke? hoke is the backup NT. IMO, hoke plays better than an overweight hampton.

You are talking about Nick Eason. He's a respectable backup at DE but I'd like to see him play NT a little more before I feel confident about him going in for Big Snack. The Rats are looking good on D, but I'm still not overly impressed with their O, so hopefully we'll get by.

I think wrong too, but against the one dimensional Ravens offense I think we can stop the run even without Hampton. I can't see them scoring more than 15 points.Of course we held Philly to 15 and still lost.

When I first saw this, I though, "Oh well, we just picked up an awesome defensive lineman in the draft; we'll use him instead."

Then I remembered that this is not Madden '08 franchise mode, and I was all "Damn."

I dont know if I would go as far as saying Hoke has been better than Hampton but I will say I havent noticed Hampton playing much better than Hoke. I think Eason and Kirschke show no letdown for Kiesel on the run plays. Its on the pass plays where Kiesel is missed. He may not get the sacks but he narrows the QB's vision when he stands up with his arms up.
