    Hey from what I've read, he was competing for playing time there, so this could be more than a non-story.

    Can we please check the pulse before we dig the grave?
    No one has any clue what the injury or severity of it is. Why comment on it before knowing anythng? Of course now that I've said that, I will step away so we can have a 200 post thread speculating what it means if Murrell is out for the season .

    Hope he's alright. I heard he was having a pretty good day today playing with the ones. Of course, we have a better chance of the U.S. government telling us whether or not what landed in Roswell was actually a UFO than we do of the Pats disclosing an injury.

    At this point, I think we sink or swin with Cunningham and simply throw him into the fire now and let him learn and take his lumps. I would rather begin the development process NOW on a young upside draft pick than hand the role over to a guy like Pierre Woods who has already shown us all that he has, we're not going to see anything more, so let's hand it to the kid and begin the process so he's ready as early as possible.

    We just arent in a position to make this decision. There is too much we dont know. How ready is he? IS he the best player at the position already? He may win the job without consideration of developing more quickly, he might be so close the guy ahead of him its a nobrainer, and he might be so far away from ready, understanidng the D, learning the techniques that he would be a liability.
    Just because of place he was drafted isnt the answer. Eveything else, that we just cant know, is.

    That is the sad truth of our current situation. Nevertheless, you know what you were doing.

    From everything I'm hearing, it appears that Cunningham is getting an extensive amount of time with the 1's.

    Which is great news, because there is no doubt our best situation at OLB would be with Cunningham having a great camp, being fully ready to go, and desewrving to start week 1.

    Not much to base it on but I thought Murrell looked decent at OLB today

    +1 re Cunningham, except that as a rookie he may not master certain packages he'd be expected to handle later in his career.

    Heck, the package he gets inserted into last might be the generic one (as opposed to nickel, where his responsibilities might be simpler).

    Semi-off-topic to this, but what does everyone think Murrell's chances at making the roster are? You don't hear much about him.
