Default Casey Hampton

1st time poster....long time lurker

Does anyone know how Casey looks this year? Hopefully he is in a little better shape since its his audition for a new contract. Having said that I still feel he is an elite NT that can still bring it. Look at some of the film from last year and you will notice how teams ran somewhat effectively up the middle when Hoke came in to spot him. Hoke is no Slouch either and could probably start on a lot of teams.

I love how you see some fans say "Casey sucks" and is a "fat slug" because he is not on everyones highlight reel, not in any statistical leader standings, and his name is not mentioned every play. These are the casual fans who dont realize that this guys key role is to take on two 300+lb bodies and contain them so a LB can make a play in the gaps and get the media and casual fan glory. Anyways, I hope he his a little hungrier for competition this tme around. Any info would be appreciated......

I don't know anything about him, other than that he's a monster and frickin thick. To be 6'1'' and 325 lbs (probably more than that) and be able to be a great football... he's got some crazy lungs.

Grew up in texas. Went to college in texas. Cowboys need a real NT. Jerry Jones loves giving out big contracts

sounds like a perfect fit to me

I would love it if he stayed, but having a capable starter in hoke makes it hard with both being in contract years, plus so many other players needed to be resigned
