    JPP, Tuck, and Osi will all get huge minutes.

    I Agree. They will all get huge minutes. It doesnt really matter who "starts" because all of them will see the field and get significant playing time.

    Is this really an issue? He's going to play as he played last season. He's getting paid more than he would have without the re-structure. The coaches will decide when he's on the field.

    Why do people care? We should all realize by now that starting is meaningless for the DE, particularly the Osi/JPP spot. These guys are going to be splitting snaps. Even if Osi "starts," JPP will still get plenty of, if not more, snaps.

    Also, ever consider it could also be to help Osi get up to speed as he missed (voluntarily or not) all the offseason OTAs?

    If memory serves me he's only been selected for 2 pro bowls in his entire career. Plus he's definately not starting with us. He's a pass rush specialist but not an every down DE.




    I don't want to start another debate but your statement is rediculous.

    Get well soon 80.

    If memory serves me correctly, so has Tuck.

    JPP has only made one probowl in his entire career.

    Nice try though.

    BTW, all-pro is not the same thing as a probowler. Different things completely.

    Kind of hard to call anyone a true starter on this d-line since they rotate them in and out so much. Even our defensive ends see time at tackle. I wouldn't be too worried.
