Kuhn probably starts the season on PUP, and one of the remaining 6 will be IR'd come regular season

who are the projected starters at DT? Jenkins and Joseph are the top candidates but it probably will be a rotation with the big boys Rodgers and Hankins rotating in situationally.

Every year we lose DTs to injuries. Last year Rogers was out before the season started...Canty missed 6 weeks and Kuhn had to be placed on IR. Bernard missed a game or two. Basically every DT we had got hurt save for Linval. So the problem will present a solution itself so the whining I've seen it unwarranted.

If miraculously no one gets injured then Linval and Jenkins are the presumed starters. Hankins and Austin will make the roster. After that it's a battle between Rogers, Patterson and Kuhn if he isn't placed on the PUP list. It's entirely possible the Giants only take 4 DTs too so there's a chance all of them are cut.

Really no one can answer what will happen until we get closer to the season.

Not so sure it is mean looking beef. Just hope we find enough out of that group to keep.

I was sad that Rodgers couldn't play last season, because He is a big wide body hard to move. Kuhn showed us what He could do ( And I'm sure that German is pumping iron and eating sausages, so He'll be ready to go ). Linval is pro bowl material, Jenkins has always been productive. I'm not sure about Patterson. Big Hank's a Man Mountain. And if Austin comes out of nowhere we could have a serious youth movement on our hands. Yeah, right now if I'm our D-Line coach I'd be one happy guy.

Time to bring you all back to reality. Linval is not Pro Bowl material. If he doesn't step it up Hank will be his replacement. After last year, no DT has a secure spot as a starter.

If Patterson & Jenkins come in and play well, then I see Kuhn going to the PUP. Also Austin better show something this training camp and pre-season or hes getting his walking papers.

No so sure they are that deep. Rodgers and Patterson didn't even play last year. Kuhn will probably start on the PUP. Pulling for Austin but all the time off is probably going to work against him.

The year before when he had a healthy Canty along side him he was very good.

I think he made good plays and bad plays. There are parts of a game where BOTH of our DTs got worked last year and he was one of them, especially versus the Skins. It's a contract year for him so I expect big things. Hank is stronger than Joseph. I think Hank will be our run stopping specialist.

I think the boys up front got complacent after that superbowl win. Last year Joseph and JPP weren't as good as the previous year. Hopefully this year they will be more hungry, and Hankins and Moore will push them harder.

Do you think we keep Rodgers now that we have Big Hank?
