    This might be one of the worse arguments I've seen on this site in a while.

    You can't keep everyone! Last year we were up against the cap and Langford was let go because they couldn't afford to keep both he and Soliai. On the switch to the 4-3, they also felt Odrick could slide over to end and adequately replace the production. This idea that it had to do with some kind of subpar performance while he was here is assanine. Not even remotely close to the truth. Langford wasn't asked to rush the passer while he was here as a 3-4 end. He was asked to set the edge (one of the best in the NFL at it) and to be versatile playing positions along the D-line. That Rams D loves having him on their squad.

    Your right and we would have and I believe planned on keeping Langford except that Paul Saoli signed for less than expected. During the Shula years you kept your draft picks on the team until they were cut or retired. That allowed you to really build a team through the draft and coach them up

    While the yards are fairly close the TD production was missed. But if RT17 hits a few of those bombes we are talking about some pretty close numbers.
    Or maybe that has everything to do with a new HC, OC, and QB. I would have loved to have seen our offensive numbers with Tanny and Marshall.

    I took a look at the Patriots game again. Egnew played every snap down the stretch in our final full possession, middle of the 4th quarter. Tannehill never looked his way but at least Egnew displayed some energy and seemed to improve later in the possession. He made one nice dip move to the inside when split right. Twice he was stationed in the backfield to block. That didn't look formidable. He was jostled by the shoulder the first time and was sent spinning.

    I don't think we'll connect on that pick but I wouldn't throw him away minus one more preseason of exploration. Jump and snag potential against undersized defensive backs. I saw him do that several times in college.

    I remember on Hard Knocks he literally looked like he was on the verge of tears every time they showed his face.

    was shocked we took Egnew. Watched his college games and saw nothing truly special there. Cant block his own shadow and cant use his speed. Never broke big plays but did catch alot of balls his junior season but was below average after reception. would have taken Orson Charles all day over this stiff
