Default Frank Summers and Tickets

Does anyone think Frank Summers will see a lot of action this year being a rookie??? and who do you call on Sat morning to try and get through too to get tickets??? even though it's almost impossible from what I've heard.

Frank will see the field. Before any other draft pick as he is a FB and a special team player. He should be first on the field. The CB's and WR's have a longer learning curve.

I sure hope he sees some action, but part of me is a little bit skeptical. The genius in charge of our offensive playcalling seems completely bought into the idea that we should carry four or five RBs on the roster, but never use more than one RB in any particular game. One would hope that we get away from that.

Also, don't forget about Urbik. If he's any good, he's got a real chance to take over as a starter at what has been a pretty weak link in our offensive line.

i think that a couple of rookies are goin to get some playin time..

i've heard a lot of good things about lewis.. he will see ST.. and could be in some packages...

burnett could be the return specialist... and prob ST player as well

do OL players usually start their first years? or just play a bit? We might see lewis or wallace start on special teams returning kicks and punts... summers on short yardage for sure, hopefully in the I or some type of 2 back formation. you notice he has gained 12 pounds in the media's eye since we drafted him. he was listed at 242-244 in college and in the draft, but when we picked him the pittsburgh media started posting him at 230. this week im seeing him at 241 again.
he is the same size as michael turner in atlanta. michaels rookie action last year was great. atlanta fans are looking super bowl with him and ryan doing their rookie demo last year. and we should too. Steelers - Atlanta - SB 44 i think summers is number 44 also.. hmmm..

Turner wasnt a rookie last year. He was signed as a FA.

True, he was a successful back up to LT in San Diego.

correct, point was that the first year with atlanta power back made the offense look great with ryan and the smashmouth working. then ryan was able to get into great play action to get up the field without a ton of pressure on him.

It's hard to see anything special in him at this point. He is unproven in the nfl but looking at his film in college the guy has some good feet and speed. He hits the holes hard I think you will see him alot more this year then you think.
