He's still on the team?
By all accounts Corn is on the outside looking in, he's not even fighting for 5th. Allen/Houston/Young/Scott/Lane It's Bass and Corny for the 6th IMO you go w/Bass who's shown more real game potential then another Webb like athlete w/no real gametape.
We'll see how it goes in the rest of the preseason. I think there is still plenty of competition for the 5th spot, and if CornWash can outperform Bass in the rest of the preseason, I think that -- plus his better upside potential -- can be enough to make it.
He didn't out perform Bass in the last pre season game, what do you mean continue to??
You had to go and ruin it...
muwa ha haaaaaaa
I did not say "continue to." I said outperform Bass in "the rest of the preseason" -- meaning games 2,3,4. Indeed, it would be better to show improvement as the preseason continues, rather than play well in the first game and regress in games 2,3,4. That is why coaches will evaluate their full body of work in preseason before making any final decision.
valid David, but the way you said it made it sound like you thought he did so far also.
But it won't matter if he improves if the others in front of him are still playing at a higher level then he is and/or are improving also. Especially since they can PS his fat ass but cannot the others.
True, he needs to improve and outperform. Are there any stats on how many snaps Bass, CornWash, and Lane got in game 1? I figure if they are likely to cut him, he'll get fewer snaps as the preseason continues. For now, at least, he seems to be getting his share of the playing time compared to Bass and Lane.
..and he would need to do better against the same or better competition. Flashing on a couple of plays against the 3's and 4's isn't going to cut the mustard.
Right. There were some series where he and Bass were on the field at the same time. That's the only way to get a fair comparison.
CornWash will likely be playing for another team next year or pushing carts at Marianos
no snap counts on the 3rd and 4th guys, but both were out there, at the end of the day these are guys that will likely only make the team b/c of their ST play, not their D capabilities anyways so none of it really matters to be honest.
I don't see Lane beating out Bass for a spot. Bass is the only guy on the team that had a sack against the Eagles.
hope you're right dabears70. I like Bass, liked him last year when I saw him play, but he seems buried on the depth chart right now.
I disagree. First, it is always important to develop your young players even though we all know they are not likely to get a lot of quality playing time in 2014.
Second, I might be wrong. If we get another wave of injuries on the DL as we had last year, we may have to depend more on these back-up guys than anybody would want.
His point was seeing these guys look like studs off of players likely to be cut because they are not NFL quality is meaningless.
Just because you can dominate a player who might be baying groceries in a few weeks does not mean you should be playing NFL football
That's all true but irrelevant to my two points: (1) we need to develop young players for the future, and (2) With a wave of injuries, we might need them sooner than planned.
By the time NFL teams get down to their 53-man rosters, most of the guys who should be baying groceries will be gone. Maybe CornWash will be among them, but he still has 3 more preseason games to prove you wrong.
I wait with baited breath....
Does the phrase looks like Tarzan plays like Jane mean anything to you?
