No, but Phillip can provide depth at the DE/DT position.

Sparano and Nolan will have the final say, I would think. He did say , "not to give away any stratagy". LOL

The "versatility" they have added has me thinking alot of things.

Anyway's, the Ireland PC is on MD.com


Yeah, I know, you just said you figured they'd get a NT elsewhere and not put Starks there. That, to me, almost makes Odrick as a wasted pick...I just don't think you draft depth guys in the first round.



I never said they won't put him there....what I thought I said was that they would bring in someone else into the mix....should have added "to compete."

Agreed. Merling has the size to move into a 3 technique on obvious passing downs. Him and Odrick inside with Wake and either Misi or Anderson on the outside should be able to put adequate pressure on the quarterback.

Worst idea in the history of ideas.

Starks is not an NT. I don't care if we're talking hyrbrid or pure 3-4. We've all seen what happens when he mans the position.

If this is true it makes for 5 guys who can rotate in and out of the nose - Ferguson, Soliai, Starks, Odrick and McDaniel. Certainly could keep players fresh.

If Starks can do it it solves an enormous need.

I think part of the reason that Odrick was drafted is because he can play inside or outside. Bill Parcells likes competition and Odrick puts pressure on Langford, Merling, Starks, McDaniel, and Solai to produce.

I like the idea of Starks playing nose sometimes and playing end other times. He is emerging as a force that can really disrupt offenses.

We already know he can't. We've already seen when he had to man that position.

This is retarded. Starks has failed there before. Why would they do that? Idiots... should have taken Cody when they had the chance.

We've all seen what happens when he mans the position when he hasn't played or practiced it.

Guys. Odrick cannot and will not play NG.

Jeff Ireland has already said that what he meant by the "inside or outside" think was outside in base 34 situations, and he can move back inside on 4 D-line sets (dime, nickel, etc.). He's not going to play NT though.

Has Starks had experience as a NT before?

I'm just saying... I don't think these guys are so much looking for guys who can go out there and play a certain number of snaps... I think they're looking for guys who perform at a high level when they are out there... get a bunch of guys together who can perform at a high level then you have the luxury of continuously swapping players in and out without much difference in the talent level.


Sparano is obsessive about player snap counts and trying to limit them based on position. There are some guys who will play every snap, but there are guys, even guys we might consider money, who are purposefully limited in field time so as not to wear them down too much.
