I form that opinion based on the lack of playing time that he has had with plenty of opportunity to play. the little I have seen he looks like just cannot handle the tackle position.
So I get your point no opinions allowed on finheaven
I also found it interesting that the coaching staff held a roster spot for him all season but then was afraid to play him. The easy thing would have been to plug in someone who was ready but with a low ceiling.
It's obvious that the coaching staff thought that they had a mold of clay here that has a high ceiling. They probably see a movement guy that they see that would fit their system. I am sure if Philbin, Sherman, Turner et al were here they would admit that he is a longshot. But it was a longshot worth taking.
Might I remind you, this is not a dufus like Tony Sparano here. These guys took a chance on a former lacrosse player and tight end who can move and has a good frame. I have an open mind on this but will admit that it's a longshot.
The bench reps as a measure as strength is a poor one but under 20 reps is pathetic. As a college freshman I was hitting 10-12 reps. At 27 my personal best was 40 about two years ago. Now I routinely hit 30-33 reps but given the time an effort I could easily add those extra reps. Theres also a big difference between 22 and 27 years old as far as strength goes too. You get older, your muscles fill out.
