    This is such a big blow imo to the team.. Almost everything went well and then this.. Man I'm out of words. Anyone good at voodoo or something like that?
    Time for Collins to step up big time..

    Its bad news and no surprise if you saw the play. Hate to say this, but....Melton had done NOTHING this year. That's not to say he wouldn't have shown up later, but I don't see much decline in the near term from Melton to Collins. In fact, Collins got way more interior pressure last night than Melton had. Be glad that Emery didn't ink him to a big guaranteed deal. Now, we do have a depth problem at DT to figure out.

    Besides the fumble recovery last night, Melton has not had any impact plays this season. I have to agree with MPbears68 that at this point in the season there isn't much of a decline with Collins now starting next to Paea.

    It will be interesting to see what Emery does to fill out the depth at DT this week. Christian Tupou, Eric Foster and Brent Russell were amongst the last DTs cut when finalizing out 53-man roster.
