    E.J. named backup

    Or DJ, who I think is another one of 'dem 'der "rookie spectaculars", but hey, how 'bout Julian Peterson? He's the veteran WILL (or maybe he plays SAM, whatever) we need.

    E.J. named backup

    I think Cowert was a great pickup and im very comfortable moving EJ to a back up role. EJ has alot of upside and will turn into a Great MLB hes just not ready to be a starter for a couple years. Another great benifit of this move i think that is being overlooked is we solidified another key weakness ... another big problem was special teams last year. with the addition of cowert EJ can focus on being a special teams guru as well as offord with the sharper pick up this adds depth to special teams as well, and maybe opposing offenses wont be starting on the 35-40 yard line every drive. now if we could just get a kicker we might be on to somethin

    E.J. named backup

    All of our linebackers were backups last year. They were horrible. I am not surprised to see EJ in a back up role. This is why we got guys like Cowert and Harris.

    Woah.

    I like the signing, as it provides you guys with some depth and veteran leadership, but I gotta be honest with you when I say I wouldn't want Sam Cowhart in that position on my team.

    Obviously, you want the younger guy to play, especially if he's as talented as EJ Henderson.

    Cowhart's already exhibited that he doesn't want to be a second tier guy. I was under the impression that he was going to be moved to the outside here.

    Can someone explain what EJ has or hasn't done?

    He hasn't pulled his head out of his @$$ for one. . . .

    Actually he's decent against the run but his coverage blows, way too many mental mistakes, both he and DT got burned by Play Action last year.

    This is how you begin to groom a future leader, by learning from a Vet., and then filling those shoes when your time comes...

    I just hope EJ is Mature enough to understand this. I really hope he doesn't let his emotions get to him in a negative way..

    I'de hate to see EJ go out and get drunk and beat the snot out of some inocent person..

    I do have a good feeling this will work out for the best in the long run..


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.
