Hello Fellow Rumblers:
We learned something very important about Chan today. He is smarter then the coach who won the super bowl today. How do I know that? Simple. They had the ball inside the 10 with under a minute left. As we know, Chan was in a similar point with NE and he did the correct thing, have Fitz take a knee. However, the Giants coach instead of having Eli do a QB kneel, hands it off to Bradshaw. I know many will pile on Bradshaw for not going down before his, ah, momentum took him over the goal line. I thought Bradshaw made a bone-headed play too, but, he was running at full-tilt and really might not have been able to stop his momentum quickly enough to stay out of the end zone. That is on Tom Coughlin and him alone. All he had to do was make the correct call, which he failed to do. Yes, they won the game, but, if they do it the correct way, it is never that close.
Next time you want to rag on Chan, remember, he got this call right and the coach that won the super bowl, didn't.
Lastly, I have a question. Does anyone remember the first game Bennett played in for the Bills? I do. It was against the Broncos. Bennett was having a wild first game. On one play, he lined up on the same side as Bruce Smith and what did HOF Elway do? He called TIME-OUT!!
What does this have to do with anything? Good question. Here is my idea: Could Dareus be used at DE? With us going to the 4-3, is it at all possible that Dareus could stay outside, even on some plays? Imagine a DL with (as of right now) Kelsey, Edwards, Williams, Dareus. That would allow us to keep our DT depth solid and make one less DE spot to fill. Anyway this could work? Is he athletic enough?
