    Yuk! Can't stand the guy. He is Bart Scott with less talent and Scott isn't all that talented.

    Matt Light has got to be thrilled. This has got to be a head game by BB.

    Any chance this was more "show us the Dolphins playbook" as opposed to a workout with a view to signing the guy? :p He really isn't very good and wouldn't make the roster here.

    Do not want.

    Guy's a meathead, which might be forgivable were he any good. Which he isn't.

    Man. I kind of strongly dislike this guy. Oh well, we'll see what I think if he has a Patriot uniform on.

    What folks are missing here is that this is a diabolical ploy by crafty Belichick. In order to get Light to stay with the Pats and not sign elsewhere for more money, Matt required that BB bring Crowder in for a "workout" one that Light would participate in personally, in every sense of the meaning of the word. :eek:

    This defense needs a little bit of an attitude

    I wish people would stop doing this. It's not respectful to her memory or to Mr. Kraft.

    Man, I'll give almost anyone a chance, but I think I have to draw the line when it comes to this puke.

    Haven't watched him much recently, but what I do remember is speed and aggression. I think he would be an upgrade over Guyton.

    I think not but regardless I absolutely cannot stand the guy. Would NOT be happy to see him in the laundry, not that I think we will.

    Fear not Crowder haters. This guy worked out for the staff. That's code for he has absolutely no chance of being signed.

    This defense needs a guy like Bart Scott. Loud mouth, brash, intense, physical, chip on shoulder, swagger. Crowder is that type of guy.

    As great a player as Jerod Mayo is, you don't want all your LB's to be calm, cool, and collective like he is. You need some angry SOB's who want to run through a wall and blow up blocking schemes.

    This guy has always liked to talk, but I've always liked the way he played. I'd take him. I think he'd add more talent to our LB corps. He's only 27 years old and he's got some talent.

    This defense has been far too "quiet/cerebral" the past few years. We haven't really had anyone like Rodney Harrison or Lawyer Milloy who is a "wear-your-heart-on-your-sleeve" type of emotional player. He's not of the same talent level of Rodney Harrison, but I do think he would make this LB corps.

    Crowder's not a very good player, and he's already showing signs of decline, especially against the run.

    I'm not so sure that I'm ready to write him off yet. He's been dogged by some injuries in recent years, but he's only 27. I'm still not ready to write guys like him or Merriman off just because they've had a few below average years due to injuries.

    I think he's worth a shot on a one year deal. Our LB corps is still fairly thin/weak, and I think if he's healthy he could be an upgrade over Guyton/Fletcher and could push Spikes too.

    I'd rather see the Pats take a shot on Tatupu, but if he's too rich for their blood, a cheap low risk deal for Crowder is something I'd like to see.

    I know a lot of fans here hate him and can't stand that he runs his mouth and plays/talks with a sense of arrogance, but I kind of like that about him. I wish this team had more guys like Bart Scott, who play with a huge chip on their shoulder and would run through a wall for their coach.

    I'll take Channing Crowder on the Pats in a second. He's at least as good as as any other linebacker on this team not named Mayo. Plus, as some others have said, he's intense and plays with a chip on his shoulder. Maybe if the defense had a chip on it's shoulder it wouldn't have gotten walked all over by the NYJ on January 15, 2011 in their home stadium....:mad:

    I'm not talking the guy down because I hate him. I've never been a fan of his game, and he's in decline. Go check some dolphins forums. Go check his numbers. He's just not the player you seem to think he is, IMO, and a lot of Dolphins fans have been pointing this out since at least 2008.

    Don't worry guys. Working out free agents this year has practically guaranteed that they'll sign elsewhere. ;)

    Guess we will see. I always felt he was a pretty solid player who brought intensity to a defense.

    Do you think NE needs another LB, or are you okay with Mayo/Spikes/Guyton/Fletcher? I think we could use another established veteran in there like Crowder or Tatupu, as well as an edge rusher.

    I always viewed him as being Joey Porter's lapdog.
