    Sounds like a piece of cardboard. I guess you need a healthy dose of these guys to balance out the Arians and Antonio's on the team.

    one of my favorite players. I've tried to tweet him a sack celebration but i get lost in the crowd (or avoided because of my moniker).

    This is how he should end all sacks

    Synopsis:

    Starts by saying he is more comfortable this year than last (as a rookie) at the OTA’s

    JJ Watt came from rival school but Whitney says there was no rivalry once they were on the same team

    Host asked about whether Whitney was bothered by Big 10 being perceived as a slow conference but Whitney says there was not much of a difference, “you find fast guys everywhere”

    When asked whether his role will expand from rushing only guy (dropping into coverage), Whitney says he will probably remain in the rushing role but there are plays where he will drop off

    Says he learnt how to set his opponents up from watching Antonio smith primarily and agreed that the inside line is among the best in the NFL

    When asked about how good it is having mentors in every position, he says it’s huge for developing skills and for negotiating the NFL, “you see things you’d never otherwise see”

    Mercilus could be a huge X-factor this year. He got 6 sacks in limited time.

    Barwin and Reed combined for 5.5 sacks, the lack of QB pressure in a blitzing defense was our biggest problem. If Mercilus can improve in that our defense could be right back on track.

    And jesus christ he has a cool name.

    It's an awful time of year. No NBA, no NFL and no college football.

    you can't think about it that way. just 2 weeks for the first preseason game! the first three preseason games are fun and wet your appetite. the week before and the 2 weeks after the fourth preseason, that's when it feels like an eternity.

    It's not 2 weeks after the 4th preseason, it's 10 days or so. We are thrown off by having the 4th preseason game on a Thursday. That makes it a few days longer.
