    Erasmus James? Will he start?

    i hope he does start over Johnstone or Scott whoever they decide he has to compete against, i think he can do more damage then Lance that play he had against the Colts made me think twice about him as a starter

    I love the thought of Erasmus getiing to qb's and creating some pressure. I think him and Scott share it a few games and then Erasmus gets it.

    Re: Erasmus James? Will he start?

    The one thing I noticed watching the Vikings at the Houston last year, is the incredible amount of substitutions the have on almost every play. It seems like 2-4 plays sub on or off on every given play. Don't be surprised to the Darrion Scott/Erasmus James share alot of time at end this year. My inclination would be that James would be counted on alot more as a third down end.

    I think that he may be able to work his way into the starting lineup by the end of the season...but we have enough competent personnel that can rotate in and out for various situations that we should be fine even if he does not start...he will get plenty of snaps regardless.

    Re: Erasmus James? Will he start?

    It is really impossible to say. Really, the chances of our entire D-line staying healthy the entire year is probably pretty small, so with some injuries I think that both Scott and James might be asked to fill in at different places this year. Ideally though, I agree that James should probably be more of a 3rd down end.

    Thanks PPE for the sig.

    I see Scott playing on first and second down and that they will bring in James and Johnstone in passing situations to really put heat on the QB but we will see what happens as preseason starts.

    I think he'll start. I just hope he comes along a little quicker than Udeze did. Kenechi made some decent plays last year, but really came along slowly I thought. I hope 'rasmus makes more of an immediate impact.

    i think they will use whoever works for the best situation, if scott is better against the run they will use him more for teams that just run like baltimore.

    I think we will rotate people in.. Udeze and Rasmus will share time with Scott and Johnstone I'm guessing.. Udeze will most likley play almost every down unless he wears down or doesn't play too well.. I hope Tice wants to have the line set and not rotate people though and have Rasmus win out the job
