, but will reserve judgement til pre-season. Still I loved D Bo's energy last year and think he is a better pash rusher than Burnett in 2002."We'd like to use him in situations like we did with Trace Armstrong," Dolphins vice president of player personnel Rick Spielman said of the Dolphins former third-down pass-rush specialist
So, you would like to see Gardener on the bench, just because he might get injured?? Even though he is ten times the player we have at any other position on the Defensive Line??Originally posted by iceblizzard69
He can't pass rush, he should be used on first and second downs and on rushing third downs, while David Bowens should be the passing third down guy. **** Gardener, he will get injured anyway.
in Ice's defense, we have yet to see DG play at DE and I agree that JT is a better player. But so far he has been outstanding when healthy. The strategy w/an improved Haley, Chester and now Burnett is to ensure that we have a DL that can stand strong ag. the run even if DG is out; but can be dominant ag. the run w/DG. As far as the pash rush goes, I expect us to blitz more or get a great year from D Bo or Wally; but Wanne has said Burnett will be the man on the 3rd down. I expect camp to show that strategy invalid and D Bo will have Lo Bro-like year.Originally posted by BMarion31
Iceblizzard, I think that a statement like that should be saved until training camp. I seriously doubt you have been watched DG practice, so to make such a comment at this time makes no sense. I personally believe he will be fine. If he is fast enough, he will wreak havic on his side of the line.
