Re: August 29 vs. Jackson State

http://espn.go.com/college-football/team/roster/_/id/2296/jackson-state-tigers Jackson State surprisingly has some size the roster. However, just because a O lineman is 340 pounds, doesn't mean he has skills. This should be a fun tune up before playing FBS foe. I can't wait to see what Davenport wi...

Re: QB Battle

The only thing that worries me about the QBs is whether they can perform if the OL turns out to be a sieve. Griffin basically had to call out their blocking assignments last year, which is why the pass protection improved. I hope these guys can at least handle that this season. Ideally we'll be abl...

Re: LSU vs Tulane in the Superdome to open the 2015 season!

I'm excited to have the problem of Yulman being too small. CANNOT WAIT! You say that very flippantly, as if it would be a good problem to have. That is, unless Yulman is the problem that prevents Tulane from getting the invite to the Big12 or ACC. Then it wouldn't be so funny, would it? If Yulman w...

Re: Saints Release Wallace.

So, does that mean that Ryan Griffin makes the Practice Squad? For Ryan's sake I hope he either makes the 53 man roster, or signs elsewhere. League minimum is somewhere around $400k, vs. practice squad players make a small fraction (think of moving the decimal!) of the league minimum. If they keep ...

I'm sure the writers did little to no research, and let's face it, with 10 consecutive losing seasons, and a 2-10 record last year this is understandable.

I've seen a few clips, and even though some of them he was in the background, he seems REALLY fast for a D-lineman. Is he really fast enough to run down a RB? Is it a case of the drill being at less than full speed, and he was able to take advantage? OMG if this guy is as quick as he's looked, we've...

There's no reason to keep a redshirt on him. We will have other kids coming in that can play as well, like Cuillette. If Tanner earns second on the depth chart, let him be the backup. It's really as simple as that. If he is good enough to earn some PT spelling Montana, that will just make him more ...
