    For those saying Melton has had little impact thus far this season...... Neither has Peppers

    Melton didn't have big "numbers" as far as stats, but he was having an impact in games. When you lose a Pro Bowl player, that hurts your team significantly. Don't kid yourself, this hurts the team. It's not just "next man up" and go on - and not have it affect the defensive line this season.

    It stinks.

    Odds just went way down to re-sign him.

    I concur with you there... Peppers benefited last night of being lined up against some inexperienced OTs. Teams are still double teaming him the majority of the snaps though.

    The only DLinemen that has shown the ability to step it up at times has been Wooton. McClellin has shown flashes in passing situations.

    He missed the hole preseason just like Williams did and Williams did make a strong comeback last night and I'm sure Melton would have made the same comeback if he was healthy...

    Break up the double teams they've been putting on Melton, and even Peppers it seems, and the other DL guys will be more locked up than they have been. All around, this blows.

    Don't feel bad, I was thinking the same thing. I do believe Collins has played better than Melton. Melton is getting paid well for this season while injured, but that ACL likely just cost him several Million.
