    Last year we had no depth behind him.

    I think it was Shanahan who some years ago said that you can't have enough defensive linemen. Whether Thomas pans out or not, it wouldn't hurt to get some more DTs. Last season Warren had to play hurt for much of it, and I think that says something about the quality of the depth we have behind him.
    And it showed. I still contend that was the biggest problem with our pass rush, which is why I would've gone with two DTs as my top picks, but the consensus seemed to be this draft was loaded with DE talent and Bates scheme needed to take advantage of that, so here we are. I'm optimistic about Thomas and McKinley, but I would like to see a fourth DT we could trust (and I don't think Veal is it).

    On the other hand, we are going to have a different defensive philosophy this year, so it's impossible to say at this point who will fit how well. Thomas hasn't played a down in the NFL. Burton's not played much more. Veal's played a few I wish he hadn't, though the phantom defensive holding call that lost the game with Indy was totally bogus. All of that said, there aren't many guys out there to whom the same uncertainty doesn't apply; everyone we know would do well in any kind of system is pretty much locked up because solid defensive anchors don't grow on trees.

    I have lingering concerns, because DTs aren't interchangeable, but I think we're in decent, if not great, shape. I wouldn't mind seeing another quality player in camp, but feel comfortable with Warren, Thomas, McKinley and the best of the remainder. LBs; I'm all about the LBs right now....

    I didnt even pick out a sentence and nit-pick about it. I read the entire thread and he asked a question about what Cugal was saying. I just read it and totally understood Cugal's point and backed him up.

    How is that even close to nit-picking? It's not even in the same neighborhood.

    A better example of nitpicking is if I read your post and said your bolded word "your" should have been "you're". THAT is nit picking.

    Talking about the concussion prone thread where you sucker punched TX's point that pretty much anyone with a brain and a cranium are susceptible to a concussion.....(I think you are safe though!)

    Your the one "trolling" the message board, BRO!
    Edit: Misread what you wrote.

    Someone made a post about Cutler being concussion prone. Instead of responding to that post he writes "no one can be concussion prone! It's impossible" and argued stupid semantics (incorrectly).

    I read these boards all the time, rarely post. But annoying, pointless posts like that make me want to write something. He does that ALL the time. I don't think that's nitpicking at all. It was the entire point of his post!

    Anyways, we are off topic. I'll shut up about it. I've made my point, you guys can all disagree at your leisure

    Either Cugal and I are wrong, or you are wrong. I like my odds after reading your other posts (my favorite being your position that being "concussion prone" is impossible because everyone can have a concussion! lol. Dictionary.com)

    Anyways kid, go back to work.

    I'll try to replay to this horribly written post. Proofread please.

    In running a 4-3 defense its essential to have several defensive linemen.

    You wrote in your reply "I never said he was going to be a starter."

    Well, genius... no one said you did! So why did you write that?

    Because you ASSUMED he was refuting your position. You ASSUMED he was saying that you were starting that.

    And that is what he tried to explain in his 2nd reply after you made the bad assumption.

    Which is what I explained. Explained very clearly in non-idiotic fashion. Thanks.

    Do try and keep up.

    Not necessarily, because if Thomas works out and you have Jenkins or Rogers, Warren becomes valuable trade bait next year. The 6th and 7th round picks really don't mean anything because Ted Sundquist has already said that they didn't believe anyone picked in those slots would have made the team anyway. The only thing that would put pressure on the coaching staff to start Thomas is the fact that they gave up next year's 3rd in the deal to get Minnesota's 4th round pick. Considering teams are willing to let QBs picked in the 1st round sit for a year, I think the Broncos could let Thomas come in as a back up for a year, if we had Jenkins or Rogers.
