    I'm hoping he still has something left in the tank. Imagine if he's still got a lot left, and we get Thomas back:cool: Teams then might fear the NE pass rush!:D

    Hopefully he can shake the rust off fast!

    I think it's one of those things where it's going to be all or nothing. If he is really out of game shape and doesn't make an impact, then obviously the pass rush will be status quo.

    IF he returns to what he was doing before the injury last year, that not only adds a premier pass rusher, but may open things up for Vrabel on the other side which would improve his production.

    It will either improve our situation a lot or not at all IMO.

    I doubt he will be impactful, since he wasn't signed by anyone all season. The only reason I think he was brought back is because of what's available, he has the advantage of knowing the system.

    I think he was an emergency signing and fell just ahead of Junior Seau

    I expect little if any impact from him since no other team thought he had anything left

    Maybe if he is still around by next season he may return in more form but I see more rust on the fender than a shiny waxed finish in 2008

    No real impact, he'll probably be used to spell Guyton and Vrabel, we'll have to see if they use him on passing downs as a straight pass rusher or run downs to keep Guyton fresh for the Nickel packages.

    That's what we should expect really.

    Which means our best and brightest will be screaming for his head because he doesn't have six sacks against Seattle.

    Sadly, imagine he goes in like a freak and GETS two or three sacks. Then we can listen to screaming about why didn't they sign him earlier.

    In his PC today, BB said standard procedure was some minor physical drills and sometimes if a player wasn't ready they would make suggestions for future consideration. I also saw somewhere today that they had spoken to Rosie already this year. Perhaps he just needed to do some at-home conditioning. Toss in a Linebacker emergency, and heeeeeeeeeere's ROSIE!

    Who? Anyone expecting that from a guy eating nachos the last 4 months is only fooling themselves.

    Based on his comments today, he sounds like he is not very fired up to be playing.
    On the basis of not being football ready, I say he has no impact at all or the pass rush gets worse.

    I don't think, at this point, he's much more than a body who knows the system. I hope I'm wrong.

    Yep, they saw Rosie back in September if I recall.

    If he is close to 100% it is clear that our pass rush will be an upgrade, especially if the reports that Adalius is on his way back are true. While Woods appears to have the look of a 3-4 OLB, he didnt exactly play like a stud when he was in. Not to say he was terrible, but nothing more than average. At least with Colvin, there is potential in that he can get 3-4 sacks over the last 4 games. Also, if he plays well, maybe we can sign him for cheap next year and bridge the gap another year and allow us to focus on DB's in the early rounds of the draft

    Colvin is a smart guy. I don't know whether to tell if he is kidding us all on his physical conditioning.

    I guess we'll know in the few weeks. I've wanted to see him at least get a chance.
