Grant has gotten fat. At the same time though, he seems to be kind of light in the #ss end. Most DTs carry a lot of lower body weight and can get low...avoiding being run off the line. This is obviously a bigger issue in the running game though and I can see him being used at DT on definite passing downs in a type of "speed" package along w/ Smith (who also needs to slim down), Young, and McCray.

what y'all think?

I don't put on the blame on Grant.

I've seen alot of game where our D-ends are getting to the qb but he has pocket to step in meaning the we aren't getting enough pressure up the middle. Now they both go hand and hand. But in passing situations i love the idea of moving him to dt. and you spread the front four allowing iso's in different areas. We got new d-line coach and i'm confident he can get our boys where they need to be. It is a copy cat league and if it worked for the Giants i can't see it not working for us.

The Saints did this under Haslett. They moved Darren Howard inside on passing downs. That left Smith and Grant on the outside. I think Young was the other pass rusher on that line in that set. Under Mora they moved Warren to DT and kept Martin and Johnson in at ends. Nothing new.

Does it matter?

I don't care if C.Grant plays the Power Forward position, as long as the defense pops the QB in the mouth. Personally, I feel Mr. Grant is a DE at the core and might line up as situational DT.

Oh goodie, another Grant to DT post. We have not had one of those for a while. While everyone is at it...do you think we change our uniforms this season? If we do change our uniforms, should we switch to a 3-4?

I think bringing in McGray will definitely light a fire under Grant's huge butt....:scratch: ...the thought of trying Grant at DT is interesting...

Grant Another Undreachiever From Uga

Someone Needs To Light A Fire Under Mr. Grant. He Got The Big Contract And Has Yet To Play Up To All Of The Hype He Recieved Going Into That Contract. This Is A Make It Or Break It Year For Him. I Think He Has Gotten The Message.
