What's the line on Dupree starting more games than Ben this year?

Or how about Shazier?

Gravedigger has had...2 or 3 concussions in his short NFL career including one in preseason. If he gets another this season he might go the way of Ladarius.

We've got some key players....dynamic players.... who have injury issues. But outside of Ben, they are still very young. Don't retire them prematurely.

Honestly, I'm encouraged by the 8.5 sacks in 9 starts. How many starts did you expect from him in his rookie season?

The dude can't help it that he got injured last season. It was one injury; he's far from injury prone.

And even a solid draft pick generally comes into his own in his third season. That's where we are now with Dupree. I'm excited to see what he does this year. Until then, I'm pleased with his aforementioned 8.5 sacks in 9 starts.

Honestly LtW, I didn't expect him starting his rookie year. However he did start I believe 5 times. Which is encouraging in my book. I do expect him to be starting at least half the time by year two. He started what, 4 games? 1 game less than his rookie season. More importantly, he's started as many games as he's missed due to injury. That is a concern. Here we are in year 3 and it looks like the same ole, same ole just a year later. I think these mystery injuries have slowed his progression and hindered his growth as a pass rusher. Obviously, keeping him off the field where his presences is needed.

When it comes to hoping for a dominant pass rusher, Dupree is the closest thing I have right now. Please don't take that from me.

Ooh- Justin Hunter inactive.

And that's who we kept instead of Coates (KC will flip out).
