    I was actually thinking Starks might make a run for the Pro Bowl. The Pro Bowl doesn't mean anything, but it's nice for our players to get recognition.

    The Pro Bowl is a popularity contest. That's why Favre made it over Pennington and Rivers... Both Pennington and Rivers had far better seasons.

    Not in my opinion. I personally think the Pro Bowl is a big joke.

    Not for random no name defensive linemen like Starks. If they make the Pro Bowl then it is a big deal.

    Yeah.. I bet anyone that isn't a Dolphins or Titans fan has no clue who Starks is.

    You have to love how Starks has grown in this defense & how they have brought out the best in him.

    Oh I'm thrilled with Starcks! He'e become one of my favorite defensive players on our team. He's a work horse and never gives up on the play. I just don't think the Pro Bowl means anything.

    I love how Starks is playing. I honestly wonder if moving him to NT would really hurt his effectiveness, because if not, playing Langford, Starks, Merling would allow us to put our 3 best lineman on the field at the same time. Depth with Soliai, Dotson, and McDaniel is more than enough IMO. Get a 7th d-lineman to take Dotson's old "inactive" spot and I'm not too worried about our d-line.

    Ummm...no. He had 4 catches, 2 of which were very tough catches. I know one of them was on 3rd down too.

    4 catches 32 yards, 8 yards per catch. Break it down, one catch was for 16 yards, the other 3 averaged a whopping 5.3 yards per catch. Let's send Ginn to the Hall of Fame guys. He sure is proving everyone that he is better than Desean Jackson. :lol:

    It's not about the yards, it's about the situation. At least give credit where credit is due. He made some really nice catches, and I'm acknowledging that, you're not.

    While stat wise it wasn't a big day receiving he made some hard grabs and did what he was asked to do. Hopefully a confidence booster for him and we can start stretching the field with him on a more regular basis. I'm definately not sold on Ginn but hope he can start catching the ball better like he did last year, his route running seems to be improving

    Only Haynos had a bad day catching the ball on Thursday.

    Henne is erratic at times and his balls come out fast. We need as much consitency as possible catching footballs.

    Starks has been a force and a fine signing. Pro-bowl births trigger incentives too, so I hope he gets in.

    Maybe Ginn has a chance to make the pro bowl as a returner if he gets more opportunities returning punts. I love the idea of having both Ginn and Bess back there. We saw the benefit of that when Bess caught the ball on the run for a nice return.
