I've heard Mallett has made some big throws but has struggled a little bit on some of the finer points. Basically, about what people expected from him so far.
Yeah he's still firmly behind Hoyer as the backup and I expect that to continue until the very least next year. They did cut Crompton though so it looks like they're trying to get him as many reps as possible for a 3rd stringer
Yeah, I'm surprised how cheap Lawson came for Cincinnati. I wonder if it's a similar situation to the deal we signed Leigh Bodden to originally, where he had the option of signing a multi-year deal, but it wasn't worth as much as he was hoping for, so he decided to sign a one-year deal to try and cash in next offseason.
I guess there's one really positive thing about switching defensive schemes (well, there are a lot), and that's the fact that we have two first round picks which means that we have a shot at Quinton Coples. I'd love to see him line up next to Wilfork:
Cunningham - Haynesworth - Wilfork - Coples
Go F yourself, Rex Ryan.

In a 4-3, I'd like to get peoples impression of Spikes in the middle and moving Mayo to the outside. He's fast enough (4.51 before the draft) but is it smart to move an All-Pro to a new position.
I think so. He's got great football IQ and is a great athlete. (I never use the word great about players but Mayo truely is one of the greats. We're lucky to be watching him now).
I think Spikes is going to be a real force in the middle and in a 4-3, Spikes has 2 monsters in front of him. I can't see Wilfork or Mayo allowing Haynesworth to dog it on the field. I hope Haynesworth feels he has something to prove because that's the only way we'll get anything from him.
I also like the idea of using Guyton on the outside. (He was faster before his draft than Mayo...same draft). Our team would be a lot faster with Cunningham and Moore at ends. Maybe that gets us a pass rush.
I like Moore and Cunningham was a 4-3 end in college (for part of the time).
I'd like to chat about this if anyone's out there.
I think a lot of what you will see "different" is shifting the linemen a few spots and moving the LBs slightly to fill the new gaps.
It won't be a huge change.
The difference between a "34" and "43" front is typically what gaps you are responsible for, what help you have behind you, and what techniques you use. But even that can get really really vague. Lots of teams use a 34 look to a 43 defense. Some use a 43 look to simulate a 34 defense on some downs.
"I'm willing the attack the quarterback, kill the running back, and knock everything back. ... I don't care what it is. Whatever gap the ball is in, that's the gap I want to be in," he said.
I think ROP posted this already in the FA thread but Pats are looking at M.Roth right now!!!
This excites me in two ways:
1) An awesome OLB for us
2) Makes me feel better about us staying in the 34 as our base D
