When Death Smiles Upon You the Infantryman smiles back
WVdolphan "Ireland gets it.
And those who also get it, know that Ireland gets it. Those who are clueless are still concerned about cornfed and the running game"
WVDOLPHAN "The last thing this team should be worried about is the OC(offensive corn). When you add it all up, its really a pretty solid OC"
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.
