    Will Leonard Little Start in 09?

    I was Just Thinking Of our D-Line and nobody comes to mind as to be very dominate. But Little popped up and I was thinking will he start and have a 10+ sack year or will he get beat out by somebody who adventually comes along and just become a situational player or even just a mentor.

    I would like to see them bring in some younger players with Little coming in as a situational player/mentor like you mentioned.

    I think you will be Adeyanju playing first down and short yardage situations. Little will likely rotate in on obvious passing situations ...

    Spags is very creative in how he lines up his D-line and linebackers. I think we'll see Adeyanju utilized from the inside a little ...

    I think he starts by default. There isn't anyone else to replace him as a starter. However, I think the double team you used to see on Liittle gets more focused on Long.

    I agree. Adeyanju is very good against the run, and Littlw will play out his last year as a situational pass rusher. I think Adeyanju can have a breakout year under spags. I also hope that Spags an utilize Carriker at end a little this year.

    I agree with that there is no one else better right now. Probably the reason he was kept.

    Nah, Adeyanju was tendered same time Cog's was.


    with injuries you never know, but i think Little will be playing and will have a good number of starts this coming year. I'm not so sure he'll be relegated to glorified mentor just yet, given his production when healthy last year. if his hammy's keep giving the "old" guy problems tho, Spag's will have to give him a back seat.

    I think Adeyanju will prosper under Spags as well. And I to hope we can
    do more with Carriker because from the last two years Im starting to
    think we drafted another 1rst round bust. Lets see what Spags can do
    with him.?

    Re: Will Leonard Little Start in 09?

    Between Little, Long, Hall, and Adeyanju we ought to be able to generate some kind of a pass rush. Certainly we could still use some young blood at the position, but we're not in as bad shape here as some other places. I reckon Little will start in 2009, but after that it's anyone's guess.
