Could you elaborate on the Calf injury, and speculate as to whether Carlos will be available for the final PS game and season opener?

This calf doesn't look good for Carlos... I'm wondering ho long its going to linger and will it inhibit him from playing at a high level all year... Brining back memories of Shawn Springs...

Did they say he didn't pull or strain his calf... THEY WANTED TO BE PRECAUTIOUS TO AVOID HIM BEING OUT A LONG TIME. Put him on the bench until he's healthy stop F'ing with it...

Josh Johnson anybody?

I think he would be better than Colt and Chase Daniel(s).....

(Don't mind me. Passing along the time until 'Real' Season)

Its time for Tryon to show up on Friday!

Good stuff about Wilson in the previous post....

Let Rogers sit it out until it's completely 100%. If it comes down to it, start Smoot week 1 against the Giants, and let Rogers work himself back into shape while playing sparingly at the nickel. As AH said, it's better to be playing 1000% for 14 weeks than to be hobbled for a majority of them.

Wilson is the type of guy I'd sign to an extension for relatively low money. You can always use a guy like Wilson for your team.

Posted by: psps23 | August 26, 2009 2:07 PM

This is only his 3rd NFL season. He'll be restricted through next year.

You're game is slippin PSP, you usually know this stuff......

BUT, I think we should explore moving CWil to SAM full time and leave Orakpo @ DE full time.

I am not comfortable with his pass coverage and fear teams will exploit it come the 'Real' Season....

Effeciency is drafting for need, NOT the best player available..Now, we're stacked at RB, WR, DT, backup QB.. Somebody else will surely suck up our offcasts, but we remain starving at OT...grrrr..

dc, the saints don't have a defense to back up their offense...thats their drawback....G-Will is gonna have to make chicken salad with chicken shinola....

I guess you missed the Saints offseason. Their defensive trouble was in the secondary. They added Jabari Greer from Buffalo, Darren Sharper from Minnesota, and drafted Malcolm Jenkins. Jenkins will cover the slot instead of our hero leigh torrence or bust jason david. Tracy porter was injured last year too but he's back. I think the only one who is staying is Roman Harper.

BGreg, agree to disagree ... see PA17 here. Some serious shinola upgrades, including some D-line help (Paul Spicer). In NO, they are in better shape with "In Gregg they Trust". At a minimum, their attack will be more interesting and they will have a system installed where unknowns can thrive just by doing their jobs.

Chris Wilson = one of my Hail Mary hopes for special teams tackling ... I have fears on teams coverage, esp. if Rock stays hurt and gets cut. Rock and Khary Campbell were the tackling guys on teams.

I suggest for folks who attend games at Fedex Field to start carrying signs that say "Draft Offenssive Linemen"

I believe that the FO has done an otherwise reasonable job, and I know they won't respond to the reporters, but if there are enough "signs" at the games, maybe we get their attention.

We have a superbowl caliber defense, and with a playoff caliber offense.....We'll see! but at the moment we have three-and-out caliber offensive line. So help!

4th, I didn't mean to extend him now, just that this is the type of player you can always use, one way or another. He, Lorenzo Alexander, Rock Cartwright (for the bulk of his career), all very similar in usefulness.
