Dom is really rolling the dice this season at some key spots. Most notably at DE where there are just bags of rocks (in reality) for players, but Dom is hoping a diamond is in each bag. As I do.

I think DQB given a full slate of sixteen and the starting nod will have a beast season. Clayborn is Greg Spires deluxe. The return of the Dirty Crane.
please.  clayborn had 8 sacks as a rookie, his only season.  thats bag of rocks?  i also dont see how you can think bowers will be a beast and consider him a bag of rocks at the same time.

What exactly is a "team guy"?
a guy that shows up to practice.  a guy that shows up to film study.  a guy that is willing to learn protection schemes.  and a guy that can put it together on the field.

How old is Blount compared to Turner and MaGhee and how much wear and tear is on his tires?  No comparison.

Did you cry when Derrick Ward was let go? He shown that he was capable of a 1000 yards.. Apparently that's what you think makes a good back up. Blount couldn't do what we needed him to do and we swapped him out with guys they believe can.

I might have changed that from "couldn't" to "wouldn't".
Before Martin was even drafted Blount publicly  indicated there was no room for another starting back or words similar thereto.

He then started pouting which became sulleness and useless to the team. Even when given the opportunity to play, he flat out stunk! Glad he's gone and his attitude with it!!!

a guy that was good enough in college to be a starter in the ACC would be a start.
alfred morris wasnt even good enough to get into the ACC, was he?
Willie Parker wasn't good enough to be the starter at UNC but he was one of the best RBs in the game for about 3 seasons. I don't remember Arian Foster being anything special at Tennessee either but look at him now. You just never know.

    It's amazing how unknown players become overnight sensations in the NFL, and sad when it works in reverse. I tend to think it happens way more frequently at RB... And, pre-season isn't necessarily gonna tell us much either. So, not gonna worry until Doug actually gets an injury.
   
    I'm actually hoping Demps shows up BIG and becomes our 3rd down playmaker! If that happens, we'll all stop worryin'  ;D

foster would have been a 2nd round pick if he had come out as a junior.  He was one of the better backs in the SEC..  Went back for his senior year, had a new coach, got in his doghouse because he didnt like his new lesser role, didnt play much and had some injuries.  That coach apparently bad mouthed him to scouts as well and he went undrafted.

What exactly is a "team guy"?

A guy that continues to contribute even when the spotlight isn't on them. 

Examples include- but are not limited to- making a block so someone else gets the first down, making a block so the QB can get a pass off, eating a double so a teammate can beat a single, running a deep route to pull a safety even though you know the ball is going underneath, giving 100% to the film and classroom to be sure that you do your job properly.  Stuff like that.

So NFL organizations let a 2nd round worthy running back go completely undrafted only because of the words of a new coach he had? You want me to believe that, when DB that didnt play at all one year because he smoked up all the weed in Louisiana went in the 4th round? That excuse wouldn't work well because this the NFL not the Sisters of Mercy.

Greg Spires Deluxe is a compliment. I don't know how you missed it unless you're selectively blind. Dude was not bashing AC.

Teams with good offensive lines are supposed to be able to plug in anonymous back ups and get production.

That's what I have heard. But wait you can't possibly be calling out the fact that we haven't even drafted one OL in 5 years and have plugged in more UDFA OL during that time than any other NFL team by far, could you?

Be careful. Reality is a touchy subject around here.
