This is interesting.

Dorsey’s a guy that will give us the ability to move some guys inside and outside. Right now, if we had to line up, he would go inside and play. Tamba [Hali] would be moved to right end and [Alfonso] Boone would go to left end. So we have a lot of different combinations all of a sudden with our linemen that we can actually play.

boone and dorsey in the middle is just fine ... leave Hali where he is too. we just have to find a pass rusher

dam shortcuts and converts are what got us all f***ed up in the first place

I dunno about that. I think it's about putting your four best players on the field.

Putting a 300+ lbs DT at DE in the Tampa 2? WTF?

It's not completely retarded. Last year Herm said Boone was as fast as either of the defensive ends. The Packers ran a defense the majority of last season with a 300 pounder at defensive end in a 4-3 (Cullen Jenkins).

Why would Turk not be the guy that moves if need be? He's the hybrid guy.

More confidence in Boone than Turk I guess.

I heard the interview and my immediate thought was that they'd say that because they're trying not to tip their hand. Because I bet you they have a DE in mind to pick up tomorrow.

I posted in the Gretz thread about this. This best be BS.

Even if you do put your four best players on the field, you've still got no one to rest them so we get ran over in the 4th again. Not cool. Better be a smokescreen.

It is a stop gap for one year. The could line up Brodie Croyle at LDE, for all I care.

Later on in the interview:

EDWARDS: “Tamba will go to right end, Boone can play left end, along with Turk. We can handle all that. We’ve put Boone at left end before. We have a lot of different combinations of what we can with some guys.

Yea that isn't going to happen, they'll draft a DE to start there.

Sounds to me like Taaaaank is about to take over a starting spot.

I listened to the replay on the teamsite and herm seemed snappy about it, so yeah, i agree with you. At least 1 DE.

I like Johnston and Jeremy Thompson from Wake Forest in the 3rd, 4th rds.

I think they question Turks toughness.

I plan on seeing a DE selected Sunday to get someone in the mix for LDE position with Turk & Boone.

I'm not all about that. Boone played well inside in 07. Leave him there.
