    I must say, im a little curious as to why Crable was inactive, and Guyton was active. Special teams decision maybe?

    Don't expect Crable to play vs run heavy teams. The guy can't hold the point. He is strictly a "run around" the lineman type player

    If that's the case, I wonder when we'll see him...

    Most of our opponents this year are either run heavy or at least very run capable on top of being a good passing team (Indy, SD, Pit).

    The Cardinals are the only team whose running game doesn't seem that good, and a case could be made either way for the Jets.

    Perhaps Crable is active against the Jets this week vs. Da Gunslinger? I know Jones had a nice rushing day in Week 1(which helped my fantasy team out), but the Pats run D > Dolphins run D.

    i didnt see him out there. i guess he was inactive. i thought for sure he'd be active, he looked like a playmaker in the preseason, a ball hawk. i feel like he looked like George Martin in the preseason, obviously Martin was a DL, but similar skill set i think

    To me he has a lot of upside. Quick and instinctive, but needs some meat on his bones and more seasoning! He'll probably be in the mix more as the season progresses or if we need to give our LB's more rest.

    We need to put him in. The only reason the Dolphins were that close in the game was because they were hitting Favre every time he threw. Even on that prayer he lofted into the end zone, about three of four of them converged on Lord Favre.

    Crable is very good on special teams as well. The reason Guyton was active is because he plays ILB, whereas Crable plays OLB

    ANOTHER revived thread.....BACK TO LIFE AGAIN!!!

    Actually no...Guyton plays special teams a lot better than Crable..and THAT was the real reason opening day. Last week, without Alexander, Guyton was the 3rd ILB...more the reason he was active than Crable. I am sure with a long season Crable will get some time playing.

    Both played Special Teams well in college, so I doubt that was the primary factor. The thing that has Guyton active while Shawn is inactive is position on the depth chart: Guyton is the #3 ILB while Crable is the #4 OLB. It's pretty much a no brainer for BB when putting together his inactive list, Crable needs more time to develop as an OLB and with his position on the depth chart is more likely to find himself one of the 8 men out.

    A point of interest for some: I'm rewatching the NYJ game and noted that Guyton was in for Bruschi and LeKevin was in for Warren against the NYJ 4-minute drill offense at the end of the first half. The Pats blitzed Guyton on the 1st down snap, he got knocked down, but got up and eventually made the tackle on Leon Washington after he had jitterbugged around looking for a running lane. The next snap he ran with the TE and was part of the pass defense that forced Favre to dump-off to his RB in the left flat and take another loss when Mayo and Adalius pinned him against the sideline. Guyton isn't getting a lot of snaps (3 v. KC and 2 v. NYJ) at the moment, it will be interesting to see if he gets more as the season rolls on.

    I've watched a lot of guys in college who were beasts on offense, defense and special teams who never make it to the NFL.

    Crable will get his chance, but it will be because of what he did in preseason, not in college.
