    I dont see Burguess geting cut. I like Murell and Nickovich I hope we keep them both. Along with Sergio Brown.

    I have a funny feeling that McGowan is hurt and may not make the team or end up on IR. I don't necessarily think this gives a roster spot for Brown but I dont think he'd last on the practice squad either.

    Nink = serviceable maybe.  Vrabel?  Don't see it.  Hope I'm wrong.  Vrabel was a warhorse, it was clear from the moment he got here.

    [QUOTE]Segio Brown could make it. That would mean one Safety gets cut though.   It's probably Sanders. If you look at Ninkovich's numbers as a Jr and Sr a Purdue, when he lined up across from Ray Edwards on that line, he was very productive. He seems to do well in spots. I am not sure he is an every down player, though. But, why would this be a bad option on 3rd downs?  I still think Guyton needs to be more involved on passing downs as well. I guess BB could use both he and Burgess as spot players.  Burgess is not defending the run well, so I don't see how he can start. Murrell is pretty solid with the run and has been getting decent pressure at times.  Not too bad, really.

    I expect lots of mix-and-match at OLB.  Their best option, TBC, is probably not an every down player either.  Do they have enough roster spots for "specialist" types at OLB?  Not sure.  They don't have one three down player at OLB, unless Cunnigham suddely emerges, which is not likely.  But I do agree that I'd take my chances with a Ninkovich/Murrell type player any day over talented but unmotivated Thomas.

    Well Vrabel was a career backup in Pittsburgh before coming to the Pats in 2001. So it could happen that Ninkovich finds his game in BB defense.

    Vrabel's was a coach on the field, very smart player.  Nink according to reports struggles with the mental aspects of the game.

    No need for comparisons but I did think Rob looked good last night. He is a little bigger and faster then I remember from last year. I think he had 3 tackles for a loss with 1 sack.

    Mckenzie also showed good tackling ability. I wonder if he might be able to move to the outside in a pinch.

    More concerning is whether Mayo and Spikes can be in the right place come season time. Those 2 guys are the glue of this defense in my opinion and we need them to get better every game.
