lol ya he would.
I hope we don't find out. There were 12 NFL scouts at the Jags game. I just saw this...
"Trevor Scott is really playing to stay on this team, he's been impressive at nearly every marker so far, and if he makes the fourth end, that's a three-way battle for spot five (and maybe six) between Austen Lane, David Bass and Cornelius Washington. Washington's flashed in both preseason games, though deep in each game."
If two of the 3 DEs play well in the last two games, the Bears might keep both and cut Collins. That's possible, if we take Emery at his word that he might go 6-4 or 4-6 split, depending on who is playing well in the remaining preseason games.
Possible since they can move Houston to DT if needed but I question if they will go with 2 rookies as the back ups
"Defensive Line Jared Allen Stephen Paea Jeremiah Ratliff Lamarr Houston Willie Young Trevor Scott Ego Ferguson Will Sutton Nate Collins *Austen Lane
David Bass got a sack in the first preseason game but his lack of significant size and limited explosiveness have made him a hard sell to make the roster. Meanwhile veteran Austen Lane has looked good in the pass rush and brings plenty of length. His connection with Mel Tucker in Jacksonville doesn’t hurt him either. One name to keep an eye on is Cornelius Washington. He has gotten more active lately too and could make his move in the 4th preseason game."
I watched the game again to see Lane. He really didn't do a damn thing in the Jags game. As this article states, Lane has the inside track on CornWash because of his connection with Tucker. CornWash needs to clearly outperform him in these last two preseason games.
The greatest thing about all this debate is we are having this debate. It would have sucked if we were discussing which of the the weakest do you want to keep. This was the problem Emery wanted and it's a great problem to have.
Diff between Bass and Corny is that Bass did it in the regular season last year.
The main difference last year is that Bass got some playing time, and CornWash was inactive for 14 games, and even in the two Lions games where he was active, he was in the game for a combined grand total of 10 snaps. A guy can hardly break a sweat, much less get a good assessment, on 10 snaps. I have NO DOUBT that he could have at least stopped the run much better than McClellin did (which is saying almost nothing, considering how horrible McClellin was at DE).
