    Russ Hochstein's former team didn't have a great OL.

    And interesting re Chad Brown. They must actually envision using him, if not this week, then hypothetically later in the season.

    Of course, we're injury-shallow at DE, so it makes sense to add depth either there or at OLB.

    "Not great" isn't the same thing as abysmal.

    Besides, DeMulling and Stokes are what they are... worse guards than Damien Woody. Hochstein at least was raw.

    Mgtch was totally right about Herron...maybe they saw something they liked and when they got him here, his special teams was worse than poor...and gone. He hit the nail on the head with him..while I thought they were looking at a Lua replacenebt (and maybe the team did as well..) he just didn't have it. Chad Brown might be a good OLB; 3rd guy in...better to have depth than someone who can't even play STms.

    OK, the feud with Minny can be forgotten. Chad Brown was cut so that we didn't have to pay him for a full season, unless he is actually on the roster for a full season. He is obviously a much better emergency backup than Herron.
    Mays is a much better special teamer than Herron. I hope he gets to stay on the roster.

    done.

    Mays is a much better Ster than Herron, yet Mays was cut and Herron signed to the 53.

    Why did we just sign Chad Brown?

    Did a LB just get injured? Why Brown now?

    Evidently, he has photographic memory and knows how to interpret defensive alignment signals.

    Re: Why did we just sign Chad Brown?

    Because that's why we dropped him for week one. Now his contract isn't guaranteed for the entire year (or something like that). I'm sure Chad knew this from the moment he was released. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Re: Why did we just sign Chad Brown?

    Because he likely will be more effective than Colvin. Colvin, in the Jets game, was effectively blocked by everyone assigned to block him, allowed anyone to go around his end, and did not even make the Pats Defensive Stats page. I did not see that Colvin was in the game for nickel and dime packages. I would venture that BB when reviewing the tape of the game, saw the same thing, thus Brown. I would also expect that we will see a lot more of Woods.
