    Udeze update

    Anyone have an update regarding the health of Udeze?
    It seems he is a forgotten Man.

    Re: Udeze update

    the only thing i've heard recently is that he's recovering well and just spending time with his family, and still hopes to be playing next season.
    I was in talks with his cousin, but haven't heard anything as of late

    "I'll be back next year," Udeze said. "Everything is going to be fine for next year."

    Wow you know I really hope Udeze can really come back and be an impact. I know there has been some guys in the past that have come back after a situation like that and had good seasons. In the Bronco game Udeze was straight beast, he was really starting to come on. He's definitly monster in the run game and gets some decent Pass Rush. Ray Edwards best watch out, We're stacked at DE.

    I think Ray and Rob are set.
    Wave guys that will really have a impact next year after we get Keneche back and he eats up all the base 4-3 reps against the run.

    Guys who need to worry about thier job are Otis and Jayme.
    One of those will go to make room for Keneche or a draftee if they go after a LDE in this years draft like I wanted them to do last year.

    Re: Udeze update

    I think a full strength Udeze is still a backup to Ray.

    Either way, the rotation of Jared, Ray, Brian, and Kenechi will be awesome.

    Drafting DE would be a total waste of a pick. Our guys are both young and good.

    What?
    You contend that Ray stands up against the run in our base 4-3 than Ray?
    Only way anyone would ever say that is if they believed that the "Sack" stat was more important than holding/sealing the left end against the run in the base defense.

    What the hell have you done with Vunit? ???

    Get strong Keneche, you will be a difference maker next season. With Udeze coming back we will have a much improved rotation with Ray, and Brian on passing downs.

    Nothing. I never bought into your whole " LDEs are supposed to stop the run first" bullshit argument in the first place. Even so, Ray has played just as well as Udeze did, and has gotten much more pressure on the QB. That may be a product of playing accross from Allen, but I can't knock Ray for that.

    When has Ray faltered at holding/sealing the left end against the run? Our run D was just as good without Udeze. If anything, Ray is more dynamic in his ability to play all four downs, just as Jared is. If you want to spell him on run downs by putting Kenechi in there, I can understand that, but Ray should get the majority of the snaps.
