    Marvin Austin?????

    He started a game against the Browns and then lost his starting job to Markus Kuhn ( a seventh round pick ) is it just about time to give up on this guy or can he turn it around still....I was so excited when we drafted him and thought he could be the dominant DT we have not had since the days of Keith Hamilton.

    They're probably just trying to motivate him. He's technically still a rookie.

    did he start that game?, i thought i remember Kuhn out there when Trent ripped off those 1st 2 runs and a TD after our fumble

    but either way, he is currently behind Kuhn on the depth chart

    but if we have Joseph, Canty and Bernard all healthy we wont need him or Kuhn ... they would just simply be emergency depth

    esp. when you consider we use Tuck, JPP and Kiwi at DT in different packages and vs. SF we were using those guys even on non-passing downs and that was party due to neither Kuhn or Austin being able to hold up

    now Austin has more upside than Kuhn, but yeah progress has been slow for him ... he's gotta get going

    What is with people and wanting to drop/cut anyone that doesn't instantly play like an all-pro...

    To me, it was not a good sign when he showed up for off-season workouts out-of-shape. After two years of not playing, you would think that the guy would have showed up in tip-top shape ready to show everyone what he can do . . . . .

    If not for Canty and Bernard being injured, I doubt Austin would have seen much, if any, game time snaps. The organization is, by design, patient with all of the draft picks. This is a guy who missed his last year in college and his first year in the NFL. They are going to give him time to develop into the potential they see in him.

    Having said that, the snaps he is getting move his development along faster than woulod otherwise be possible.

    He tore his pec. Out of shape may not mean he was fat, just that his strength had suffered from not being able to lift.

    I'm curious to see how people are if Canty takes few games to get back to normal.

    Isn't that a given?
