    You know I would think we would normally go more CBs are well.... But gray was talking about the "nickel" guy needs to basically play LB.... And said they weren't wanting to see 185 LB verner have to tackle rbs running down hill.... That's the only reason I made it like it is. Otherwise I think Vern would be inside no doubt.

    That's a weird set. If they did run any kind of 3-4 set, I'd say they want Gooden and Brown running around as ILB's and Ayers/Wimbley as outside rushers..... or Gooden and McCarthy at ILB and Ayers/Brown as the rushers.

    My personal nickel set up would be 3 down linemen, Ayers as a stand up rusher, Brown/Gooden at LB, and 5 DB's. You could blitz a 5th or even 6th guy and still have pretty competent field coverage.

    That sounds like a perfect role for Pollard.

    That's a good call. Move Verner to safety in those sets? Could be interesting look.

    LMAO!!!! I needed a good laugh today! He may have the most top end speed but it takes him forever to get to that and by the time he does CJ would have too big of a lead for him to catch up!

    Guess that's why CJ refuses to race him, huh?

    Yeah Chris "I can beat Bolt" Johnson, is too scared to race Tommie Campbell- who the team says is the fastest player on the team.

    Hmmm... wonder why?

    The debate of them racing has never came up! TC knows better to challenge him. TC didnt have as fast of a 40 time. CJ is still the fastest player in the league! I'm pretty sure if CJ is willing to race Usain Bolt, he's not afraid to race Tommie Campbell

    C.J. wont race Tommie, whats he going to do when he loses?

    It's one thing to lose to an Olympian, it's another thing to lose to a regular guy.

    I just don't see Tommie beating him. He's got the stride and the top end speed like another poster said, but I've never seen anyone faster than CJ.
    Anyone! (substitute scrub here)



    Just don't see it happenin
