    Bad news: Rob Burnett is hurt, may not play.:(

    Good news: David Bowens has had 21 days of practice and will see his first action of the season.
    Fresh legs on a speed rusher.....can't wait to see it.:)

    Wasnt David Bowens not very good in our DE rotation last season? I was under the impression both Williams and Burnett were better?

    he's not that great (bowens d) but remember tim bowens might not play so zganina is a speed rusher

    we'll do just fine, their running game is soft, we just need to put points on the board

    if we score 3 td's and 2 or more fg's we win, for sure, no more bs, this one is ours

    Anytime Bowens has been in he has played well as far as I recall. He's shown flashes of being very good when healthy.

    I think this is really good news but, like everything else, we'll see. :)

    David Bowens only problem has been his inability to stay healthy. Williams and Burnett are bigger and thus get the DT positions when we switch up to our four-DE alignment. But, nearly every time Bowens gets a chance he seems to make a play.

    If he can stay healthy I don't think we will miss Ogun too much next season if he is signed away from us.

    Yeah, D Bo was suppose to start last season at LE until Adewale had that 8 Sack Pre-Season, then the starting position was granted to Wale.

    I remember the coaches talking about how explosive a pass rusher he is, I do remember him grabbing a sack last year in the first game against the patties.

    Speaking of that 4 defensive end alignment the phins deploy at times, I seem to remember D-Bo making several big plays behind the line of scrimmage with his quickness the few times he manned one of the tackle positions last year. He also made numerous bone-crushing and ball-jarring special teams hits, especially on kick-off coverage.

    If David Bowens knew how to get off a ladder he could be a good backup DE. Bowens has some talent, but hasn't had much of a chance to show it off.

    If Burnett can't play, I am guessing that we will see Bowens in passing situations when we put 4 DEs in the game.
