    Look at this. If Trestman starts to fail we've already got nickname for him. If it was Boomer he'd be calling him "Oh my aching Tresticles". :p

    I hate to say this Ric (well no I don't, not really) buuuuuuttttttt........

    Wootton has had injury issues throughout his entire career which is why keeping Izzy (who has not) may have been a good thing to do. One reason for this may be how much time Wootton is spending on the field having to play both DE and DT. If you'll recall we lost him for an entire season two years ago when Lovie hand him playing on kick coverage. If the guy has some issues with injuries you want to him a little less not a little more.

    I'm getting a real kick out of Phil's plan to replace Izzy at DE and as a nickel DT. First Sedrick Ellis develops a vagina once he's told he has to actually run sprints, the Turk McBride ruptures and Achilles, and now Jamaal Anderson has a boo boo on his knee. How many more apples are there at the bottom of the DL barrel Phil?

    Does anyone else but me feel there's a little Angelo deja' vu going on there. You know Phil you actually had the guy you needed. The perfect guy. Older but still very productive, never an injury problem, great team player who'd do whatever you asked of him, and he knew this defense and his responsibilities inside and out. And you had to be cute and let him leave! :mad: Schmuck!!!!

    Why don't you call Jim Schwartz and offer them a 6th or 7th round pick and get Izzy back to save your miserly double dealing ass! I guess it would be too much to hope that the Lions will cut him and we can pick him up later this month huh?

    Its interesting...you're worried about the depth on the DL. You should however be more concerned about the head case we have at QB and whether he can even handle all the pressure that's on him this year.

    Izzy had to go because they need the younger guys playing. Its time the Bears find out what they have on that DL. And all the latest reports on Wooton indicate that its not a serious hip injury.

    Not re-signing Izzy (a talented, high-character vet who is healthy and can play hybrid DE/DT) is looking more and more like a big mistake. Especially since he signed elsewhere for cheap. Especially if Corey 'glass' Wooton reverts to his typical injury-ridden form.

    Oh go piss off with that shit D. You just love to crap stir about Cutler don't you? Did you actually see him play here in Denver when he had an offense built around his strengths and a line that kept him off his ass? No, you probably didn't but I did so I already know what he CAN do yet all you do is wish him failure so you can say "I told you do". That's lame, real lame, but then your you so what else can we expect?

    Quote: "Izzy had to go because they need the younger guys playing". Yeah right. :rolleyes:

    Who then D? Emery went out and signed vets like McBride, Irvin and Ellis to replace him. They may be a few years younger than Izzy but in terms of NFL experience not all that much and not one of them has been as productive as Izzy has been. Now Ellis has retired, McBride's out for the year and maybe forever, and Jamaal Anderson has been a draft bust ever since he came into the league. He doesn't have Izzy pass rushing skills either. That's who he's brought in to replace Izzy NOT "younger guys" like Washington or Whiteside.

    Wootton and McClellin were gonna start and rotate anyway but Izzy's role, as it was last year, would have been as a utility DLineman playing some DE and spelling Melton at DT as a pass rusher. He had 7 sacks last year playing part time so it wasn't to hard to imagine him repeating that again plus forced fumbles and knock downs. Enough of this BS about younger players. We didn't replace him with "younger guys" we replaced him with castoffs from other teams who weren't anywhere near as good. McBride was the best of the lot and now that's history and Izzy is playing taking McBride's place in Detroit! Yeah we need a few more deals like that out of Phil like I need a Packer cheesehead hat!

    They already know who they can depend on to play the rotation on the DLine and we're about two men short. Here's what you've got for sure. DE; Pep, McC, and Wootton, DT; Paea Melton, and Collins. That's it. The other two spots are up for grabs between a bunch of rookies and one failed vet with a "sore knee" he apparently arrived with since they just signed him. We could have saved ourselves some time and effort by bringing Izzy back and it couldn't have cost all that much given what he's getting from Detroit. Right now we could use him.

    No they signed none of those guys to replace Izzy, Shea/Wootton were to replace Izzy, and those players were to replace Shea/Wootten as depth.

    And no we have no "depth". Ellis quit. McBride is out for the year. And busted Anderson got hurt immediately. So all we have competing for a 4th DE and 4th DT is Washington (a 6th rounder) and some udfas. Izzy would have been excellent depth for less than $1 million. Dumb.
