Kirwan said that "Shaun Rogers looks better than ever after losing close to 50 pounds." His comments about being stoked for the season and wanting a ring give the impression he is ready to contribute, anyone think Rogers will be a factor at DT for us this year? He's a big man that could require lots of attention in the middle.

At this stage of the game for him it will all about desire and drive. IMO if he makes it through camp he will be a good guy to have in the rotation....

if Rogers really is stoked about this coming season then teams will have a tough time running the ball up the middle of our defense this year...

Wow, it's hard for me to picture him losing 50 lbs. He's got to be super motivated to do that. That would bring him down to about 305 lbs. If he does make the team, who will be the odd DT out?

right now there's:

Canty
Joseph
Bernard
Austin
Rodgers
Kuhn
Hendricks

You figure Kuhn & Hendricks will be on the practice squad. That leaves us with 5 guys for 4 spots. Doubt Fewell and Coughlin carry 5 DT's.

Carrying 5DTs' isn't totally out of the relm of posibility since we haven't identified anyone to fill that 4th DE roll. The coaches may decide to use a combination of Kiwi, Tracy and Canty rotating into that DE role in different situations as opposed to having a true 4th DE. That would open a spot for an extra DT.

I don't recall Canty playing DE while with the Giants. I could be wrong, but I don't he ever has. Fewell spoke about using a "NASCAR Package" using Osi, Tuck, JPP and Kiwi from time to time. He also spoke about a "Bison Package" and a "Tractor Package", but didn't go into detail.

He hasn't played DE with the Giants but was a DE (albeit in a 3-4) with DAL and played DE in college. And in 2010 they did experiment with a big package with him at DE.

He balooned out of shape. I wouldn't be suprised if he was tipping 370 before losing the weight.

To the point of the thread title - If he ends up being a big factor, Look the **** out for this defense.
