View Full Version : Holthus on the LB's

Talked about Maz being cut, which was a lead-in to talking about Griffin because he was also a small-school guy. Said that early on the team told the media to keep quiet about Griffin, they wanted to hide him on the PS. Now Vermeil is telling him that Griffin will likely make the team. Holthus then said that "Fujita is probably next".

Vermeil has done a 180 on Tynes. Last week Tynes could do no right, now Vermeil is defening him like a son.

Finally, he ended the interview with this:

He has some "controversy" to talk about in tomorrow's interview.

Fujita is next? I can name alot more scrubs that deserve to be canned before Fujita does. Glad to hear Griffin has a good shot of making the team, he's looked real good.

It's very clear what that one is about. He realizes we have no options in FA that are much better prospects so he's going to have to stick with Tynes. If you're gonna stick with a kicker you don't badmouth him to the press, kicking is mental and it would just make it harder for him to produce.

F the controversy.

Thanks Parker!

By saying Fujita is next is he saying Fujita is going to be cut?

I thought Fujita has played very well in the preseason.

if cut Fujita we will have almost no experience in our LB core after Mitchell and Bell:

DJ
Griffin
Grigsby/Scanlon
Fox

Fujita seems like too good of an insurance policy to cut. He'd get picked up in a second.

Didn't Dick say something earlier in the week about Tynes being inconsistent with the placement of his plant foot on kicks, or something like that?

Maybe he feels that getting that fixed will resolve his inconsistency issues, and he is already seeing positive results.

Hey, shut the hell up, I know it's reaching, but a guy has to have hope, don't he? :)

Sorry Roys, but Gopher looks like a career scrub to me.

Are you saying that DV said Fujita is next to be cut? Seems like he's played pretty well so far this year. That doesn't make much sense to me.

DaWolf
08-24-2005, 07:18 AM
Wonder what happens when Shawn Barber is ready to come back. Of course by then the usual injuries could make that question moot.

Hopefully Griffin isn't just some scrub who is a preseason wonder and then looks like crap when the bullets start flying for real. If he's another free agent steal, good for Carl. OTOH, does that make Fujita another draft bust? I'm sure he'll get scooped up by someone else...

Keep effin' doubting Fujita :cuss:

Seriously, cutting Fujita sounds like a boneheaded move. I think Fujita could start for several teams, and would be an invaluable back-up behind Bell. So far I haven't seen much from Fox, and it's unlikely that Griffin is already a better option than Fuj? Fujita's 2004 season was completely destroyed by that ankle injury. It cost him his mobility and speed and led to several missed tackles (IMO).

I agree that Fujita would be snapped up immediately if he were waived.

I just have a hard time seeing Fujta being cut the way he has played in camp and preseason so far.

Seems that Griffin has been shown to much to keep off the PS.

No problem Sidewinder, we all have opinions........ if he makes it, he makes it. If he doesn't , so be it...... like Fujita, he will be picked up by somebody.

NOOOooooo. Everybody was thinking it, someone had to say it. Hey, let's just pretend it's going to be something else, like maybe our waterboy sprained his ankle.

In all seriousness though, if I had to put money on it, it would be that "Bell will not play against Seattle".

2) He didn't deliberately lead into a cliffhanger. They ran out of time. He sounded like he wanted to talk about it today, but the host cut him off.

My guess is it comes down to the future. We only have Fujita for this year, then you know he's going to test FA rather than be content as a back-up. So do we keep him for this year, and risk losing a future LB. Or do we take our chances that our starters stay healthy and our young back-ups can get the job done.

FWIW, Fujita has been pretty unimpressive on STs too. He just doesn't seem to get it.

We've seen Fujita as a healthy starter on a defense that was littered with pathetic talent, and coached by a terrible DC, and he performed fairly well in those circumstances.

Fujita is not a playmaker, or a difference maker, but I think he would be solid depth behind Bell.

KG might be a DJ clone, but until he shows he's not just another preseason all-pro, I think it's a mistake to jettison a guy that has shown that he can play on this level.

I don't see cutting Sushi....errr Fuji...I mean Fujita. I thought he was decent the other day. Griffin seemed to fit right in to Guns ROLB position so I can't see us letting him get away. Key Fox looks like the odd man out to me. He fits the profile of most improved player/trainning camp wonder who is about to get cut. He's been injured every year in camp it seems too. So our LBs would be Bell/Griffin, Mitchell/Grigsby, DJ/Fujita....Stills....how many we keeping?

Fox played all of OTA's and TC at the other OLB spot, but moved to Bell's a couple of days before the Vikings game. He's also been working some in the middle. I think he's also been dinged up, AGAIN.

There is no upside to cutting Fujita. He is KC's only experienced, healthy OLB, and is on a one year, cheap contract.

If I were Gun, I would have had Fujita learn both OLB spots, and work him in if Bell isn't ready to go. I like Fox and Griffin, but not starting.

FTR....... Boomer will make the team, the media / Boomer cult will have a hey day with DV and Gun .

Stills brings very little to the table, but DV keeps him as a ST's player and a rushing OLB / DE.

Barber never did impress me here, he left his best football in Philly. Cut him after week 6, he won't be 100 % and does nothing but eat up a roster spot from a healthy player. All Barber has done so far is run in a straight line from what I'm told, I could be wrong, that was week 1 in camp.

Seriously, cutting Fujita sounds like a boneheaded move. I think Fujita could start for several teams, and would be an invaluable back-up behind Bell.

I would be really surprised if he doens't end up in our starting lineup before the seaons over. Realistically Bell's doubtful to play all 16 games and even if you dislike him Fuji's the only other backer that you know can go in there and make tackles and not screw things up.

I say Griffin goes ot the practice squad. Yeah he's got some potential but people notice him because they never heard of him before and he was undrafted. There are guys like him trying to make the roster for every team in the NFL right now. Athletic looking outside linebackers are hardly a rarity they're more like a dime a dozen.

I don't understand the comments that Boomer has done nothing so far. All he did so far was lead the team in tackles in the first game.

He also made some mental errors. ABout what you would expect from a rookie or even a little better.

It's way early to be cutting him.

I guarantee Boomer won't be cut in the first round. He may eventually be PS bound, but as one of two of the backups for MLB, I bet both he an Scanlon are on the club when the final cuts are in.

I say Griffin goes ot the practice squad. Yeah he's got some potential but people notice him because they never heard of him before and he was undrafted. There are guys like him trying to make the roster for every team in the NFL right now. Athletic looking outside linebackers are hardly a rarity they're more like a dime a dozen.

I agree that there are players like Griffin on every NFL team, trying to make the squad and that there are man athletic OLB's are out there. However, after watching the last preseason game against the Cards, Griffin showed not just athleticism but some playmaking instincts as well. One play in particular stands out, when he was in coverage and read the pass to the TE perfectly, arrived at the right moment and broke up the pass. The play wasn't that much different from the INT Demarcus Ware had the other night against the Seahawks.

Just because he was talking LBs today, doesn't mean the "controversy" is LB as well.

I don't understand the comments that Boomer has done nothing so far. All he did so far was lead the team in tackles in the first game.

He also made some mental errors. ABout what you would expect from a rookie or even a little better.

It's way early to be cutting him.

I guarantee Boomer won't be cut in the first round. He may eventually be PS bound, but as one of two of the backups for MLB, I bet both he an Scanlon are on the club when the final cuts are in.

Not picking a bone here but we found out last year what the leading
tackler got after 2 games ..... PS.

Boomer played alot of minutes the 1st game and not as many the 2nd game. The 2nd game he was in on some tackles and got credited for none of them....But he has alot to learn on the NFL level....... should make the team due to his ability and ST's play.

Roy's lack of gag reflex is amazing to me.

Taking it down to the adam's apple, all while humming the national Scanthem.
