    Seems that the team is placing Bass ahead of Washington. I would consider Washington over Bass against a run happy Skins team. Heck he could outperform McClellin in that capacity, easily.

    It will be interesting. They averaged 6.5 yards per carry last night rushing, and RGIII averaged 8.6 yards per carry. Our guys will certainly need to tackle better, and we'll need some speed/quickness to keep their runners in check - especially with RGIII. I watched the game last night, and he isn't as quick as he was before the injury, but he's still dangerous. Our DE's need to be able to contain. Our LB's need to show up too. Speed/Quickness & better tackling by all.

    Their rookie TE, Jordan Reed, looked dangerous too. He was their #2 receiver last night.

    And boy, Dallas' Marinelli has those Cowboys DL guys playing great. Decimated by injuries, yet their backups are playing solid.

    Thank you. You probably know CornWash's strengths/limitations better than anybody on this board, since you are a Bulldogs fan. I can't believe that he wouldn't stop the run better than Shea. And if he got 1 sack in 6 games, he'd have more than McClellin had the first 6 games. I honestly don't understand why they won't play CornWash. This may sound like treason, but it may take a crisis to get their attention. More and more, teams are going to focus their running game toward McClellin, as the Giants did.

    I know CornWash added about 45 pounds of muscle in college. He obviously knew how to train. Did you see year-to-year improvement, or did his DUI case set him back? He wasn't the feature guy in their defense -- aren't there a couple other guys from UGA also drafted? Not sure.

    You know full well he has the physical talents necessary. In college he did show improvement, but honestly the defensive coaching staff (in his last 2 years) wasn't well known for being technique teachers (more rah rah guys and schemers). What he needs more than anything is hand and foot technique coaching.

    As for his DUI, this is a classic case of a "who you run with" offense. First of all, to get a DUI in Athens while being a football star means he was blotto. As I understand it, he was given a ride from a party by friends, then got in his car to go get late night food w/ his roommates (one of which was kicked off the team).

    Several UGA defensive players were drafted in the first two rounds. Lots of talent there, again just a little more technique coaching needed.

    I wish Peppers would take CornWash under his wing and teach him the tools of the trade. That's how he could earn his salary this season. I don't know anything about Tucker's capability as teacher, but he did say in an interview that CornWash is coachable and works hard. On the other hand, a couple scouting reports I read questioned his "work ethic" and suggested that's why he dropped to 6th round in the draft.

    That is a stellar idea. I agree it would be a perfect opportunity for him to learn from a future Hall of Famer.

    The whole D line should learn from Pep (see Paea thread). Not to say that they might not be learning from observation or mimicry but it appears that definitly some technique and finer points are missing.

    Not Saying I would not like the guy to see the field, as a matter of fact I would like him to be given a shot (mainly because of the same reason everyone else stated, he can not possibly be worse than our future 1st round bust).

    I just wish there was some kind of real indication that he is ready, either through the press or through the coaches. I'm just not seeing it.

    I understand that every player's situation is different, but you bring up a good point. Sometimes, if a young player isn't ready, and if you throw him to the wolves you can actually set back his development. I don't know if that's the case here, but I keep coming back to the same thought. The coaches have some reason for not putting him in. I don't know what that is, but it's not an arbitrary decision. As fans, we don't have all of the information, but the coaches do.

    We heard this whole "haven't heard any indication he's ready" stuff with Mills in TC. And then one day bam he's a starter for one game (at the time) and then the rest is history.

    I don't care if it's corn wash or anyone else...some news bodies need to be added to the mix tho.
