    Alonzo Spellman comes to mind. He was also built like a cyborg -- had 4% body fat at 280 pounds. But he didn't have near the speed of CornWash.

    yeah, but unfortunately for us, not in the "good" way. He was just criminally/nuthouse crazy. :(

    I've read nothin outside this board that say Corn Wash is ready to play, or that he is showing promise.

    If Wooten slides inside, then they have no choice but to play him, right?

    I think that is kind of what we are down to now, we don't have any choice but to give the youngsters a chance. May turn out to be a good thing!

    No, CornWash was inactive for Saints game. Look, I don't have great immediate expectations for him. He is a "raw prospect" with outstanding physical attributes. If McClellin were getting the job done, I wouldn't be pushing for getting CornWash on the field this soon. But he wouldn't need to do much to outplay Shea, so let's give it a shot and find out what he can do. What's to lose?

    Active for last game:
    David Bass DE

    Joe Anderson WR
    Michael Ford RB
    Jon Bostic LB
    Kaseem Greene LB
    Zach Minter DT
    Marquess Wilson WR


    Inactive for last game:
    Cornelius Washington DE
    CJ Wilson

    My adopted Bear gets no respect! With Paea coming back for Redskins game, they should drop Minter and activate CornWash.

    Exactly, look we can call it whatever we want. You can say he's "developing" or "just needs more weight" or anything else you want. Fact is that Shea was an OLB drafted to play a down 5 or 7 and he just isn't getting it done. If any noticed how the Giants were running the ball it was pretty clear. They were using motion away from Shea to create a false weak side and running right at him. He would get killed and it would leave a huge hole for a lb or S to have to fill and killed us with it. And as far as this "playmaker" we have...just watch him he tries a speed rush and runs himself past the qb every time because he isn't strong or big enough to turn the corner. No counter moves off his speed rush.

    That being said I agree. What's the worst that can happen we get a DE that is horrible against the rush and a non factor in passing situations either? I think that's called a lateral move if that were to be the case.
