    Lol @ Shea being listed at 260. They fed us that bs to insinuate he could add another 10 in the weight room and be a real DE. It wasn't until TC this year that we learned his real (ideal) playing weight is about 245-250.

    The Bears need to convert him to LB and stop this nonsense.

    Correct. Peppers and McClellin have 1.5 sacks combined, and Bears rank near last in NFL in sacks and only about 100 yards less than Giants in total yards allowed for last place in NFL. That's the backdrop for me asking them to play CornWash and Bass -- at least enough reps to see how they perform. Then we will have comparative data to decide which of them, if any, is a keeper for next season -- that is the context for my "next season" reference.

    It's hard to argue that the DL could get any worse (both pass rush and run D) by playing a few rookies.

    For comparison, Chandler Jones the 2012 NE Patriots 1st round DE has 9 tackles and 3.5 sacks this year. Let's play some of the younger talent that are more suited to DE.

    No, my implication is that the coaches are playing Peppers & McC because as bad as they are right now, they are STILL better than the talent that is sitting on the bench. People want to see Corn-Wash, but perhaps the coaches know something we do not. In fact, I damn well guarantee that they do.

    My implication, that despite how badly fans want to see Corn-Wash, perhaps they know that a Corn-Wash at 100% is not as good as what we currently have.

    Make sense, or shall I break it down even further for ya my friend?

    I agree. The coaches are putting the best players we have on the field, so we can win. We are still in a good position at 4-2 to make the playoffs. So we don't want to give up on the season and play a bunch of crappy young players who may cost us a playoff spot. Yes, the DL is not good. Don't kid yourself. It can always (always) get worse, if we just turn the season into a summer training camp situation for green undrafted rookies.

    That was exactly my thought process.

    If Shea is one of our best DLmen vs the run, then we aren't going to stop anyone.

    Btw, with Aldon Smith out, the Niners are playing a rookie DE (Lemonier) who is balling out there
