He was very helpful and productive in the DL rotation. Who will replace him? I know I will get flamed, but maybe as a last chance to keep his roster spot, maybe we should try Sintim at DE....seemed like this was one thing the guy could do well......

Trattou is my guess, maybe Tracy.

Sintim isn't physical enough as a LB, what makes you think he can hack it as a DE, then?

that will be something interesting to watch in the preseason</P>


b/c while 4th string RBs and 2nd string QBs, etc. generallydon't play ... 4th DEs are part of the rotation</P>


one obvious thing to consider though is using Kiwi at LB on obvious running downs/base defence downs and having him lineup somewhere on the D-line in obvious passing downs, which naturally we did a lot the past few years, but maybe he has a few more DE snaps this season</P>


they way i look at it is there will be more than enough snaps for anybody playing well on D ...</P>

I really don't see Sintim making it through training camp based on his performance so far, unless he experiences divine intervention he's gone...

This.


And Kiwi can take Tolly's snaps. Kiwi actually did not play all that many snaps last season, and played very few at DE

How about another Long shot ...., Markus Kuhn.. a white DL who is reported to have a motor that never quits.

Kuhn doesnt have the athleticism to play DE on passing downs.

Kiwi. If PF wants to do the nascar package at all next season he could be a full time DE, what with the 9,000 linebackers we have...

J Will and his high top fade. Actually, I'm hoping Tracy can be the one. I think he has the ability but unfortunately is more a linebacker in size and stature. Then again Osi is too. Was a pass rush specialist for the Tribe though so......

Hopefully we can find a competent player to fill that spot. Doesn't necessarily have to be a great passrusher, but at least able to hold his spot while he's in there.

Whoever it is, his role wont so much be to help with the NASCAR package, but more to give a reprieve to the starters when we're down a DE from injury.

This is not a huge issue, as the team has a number of players that will be competing for that position. The DL is stacked, and specially at DE. There are other spots that I am more concerned about than the DL.

could maybe see Canty wtih more reps at DE with Austin earning some time at DT, mix in Kiwi with his hand down a little more...

not sure there will be a real replacement for Tolly

Maybe because Tolly was white, too? I dunno, I'm just spit balling why he might even need to reference that.

Yeah, I can see this too. The spot doesn't become an issue while everyone is healthy.

Where it would come into play is if one of our DEs' go down. You need that 3rd DE to give them a breather. Canty taking snaps at DE could help with that as well if we carry 4 DTs' this year.

I'm thinking Trattou will take Tolly's spot...

I'm thinking you will see a lot more of Kiwi with his hand in the dirt to start off the season and most likely throughout the season as well. Still, you'd like to carry 4 DE's and I could see that final guy being Tracy over Trattou. Feel like he has more potential although Trattou does play a lot of special teams (a trait they loved in tolly). It will be interesting to see, but we will be fine. As much as I love Dave Tollefson he is not worth the 1.2 million or whatever Oakland gave him. In Reese we trust baby.

Perhaps Trattou. He is the next white chocolate DE. lol
