    Maybe he can find a position there..seemed like he was a tweener in a bunch of positions...I always thought with a bit less weight he might be a run stopping ILB..but that would have taken awhile to do...just a thin line between incredibly versatile and not at all so

    Dan Klecko as a QB. Why not?

    Re: OT: Eagles move Dan Klecko moved back to DT

    I ass-u-med that when he was drafted in '03, because of the off-season talk of switching from 4-3 to 3-4, Klecko was going to lose weight and convert to SILB. Otherwise, taking him at all wouldn't have made sense; and as it turned out, it didn't.

    Klecko could still make it as a 4-3 DT with Philly, because JJohnson likes his DTs light in order to attack btwn. gaps. While not a strictly a Tampa2-style defense, the Eagles def. play closer to that style than to the NEP version of the 3-4.

    So your prediction is he'll make it as a DL in Phillie??

    In some ways he is a good kid.

    In some ways he is lucky to still have a job in the NFL.

    The Eagles signed Kimo von Olhoffen, I think to play on the interior. Klecko probably has some work to do to make the team.

    I've never understood the fascination with this guy. Who cares, what did he ever do for us? Many more remarkable players than him have come and gone that get much less attention.

    I used to not care about him, then pretty much hated him after the 2006 AFCCG, now I'm indifferent again.

    In looking at Philly's TC roster, it seems that 3 of the 4 DT spots are pretty much locked: Mike Patterson, Broderick Bunkley and rookie Trevor Laws. There are 3 main candidates for possibly just 1 other spot: Klecko, Kimo von Oelhoffen and Montae Reagor. Klecko has a shot to beat out the two vets, if he has a good showing in TC.

    Underdog? He's built like a cannon ball and his dad played in the NFL.
