That's not Spoon it's Mitchell I believe.


He looks like Spoon then.

Osi has been getting reps at LB as well. Any word on Brian Banks?
every guy who's been at camp has said the same thing to me, GREAT in pads. reminiscent of Jeremiah Trotter hitting people. Where they say without pads, he needs a lot of work.


Think he has any chance at the final 53? I think he's a near lock for the PS.

I read that Cliff Matthews gained weight in order to move inside? That is really interesting.

I've struggled to find coverage on the battles along the offensive line. Anyone know what's up there? How's Holmes doing?

Reports are that he is "getting pushed around" quite a bit out there...

Any chance Harry Douglas gets beat out for the #3 spot?

Oof, that's not good. Will have to watch out more in the preseason.

In TC? Not a chance. During the season? I could see Davis or Cone pushing for time. Both have been fairly impressive.

Some tidbits from SB Nation on the Friday Night Lights scrimmage yesterday:

On the OL:
Quote:
I could see that neither Mike Johnson nor Lamar Holmes looked particularly good at the right tackle position with full-speed pressure, but Peter Konz and Garrett Reynolds held firm at center and right guard. There was one play that Johnson contained Kroy Biermann, but only because he held Biermann to the point that he had him on the ground with fists full of jersey. For the reserves, Phillipkeith Manley was particularly adept in run blocking.


On Brian Banks:
Quote:
Brian Banks has established enough confidence in his role at middle linebacker that he's calling the plays. I will be shocked if he doesn't make the final roster. Banks looked particularly good against the run, which is a big need for this Falcons defense.



On the DL
Quote:
Although I couldn't see much as far as one-on-one matchups and how individual offensive and defensive linemen managed those matchups, what I could see was Jonathan Massaquoi just absolutely running over anyone in his path. He consistently got into the offensive backfield against the second and third team offensive line. Malliciah Goodman also managed to bring consistent pressure. Against the first team unit, Osi Umenyiora was very difficult to contain. He brings really solid pressure off the edge.


And I don't really have a quote, but apparently Cliff Matthews is solidifying his place as a rotational DT.

Saw this and thought it was interesting.

Quote:
John Manasso writes that it became obvious at Friday night’s scrimmage that Kroy Biermann is competing with Stephen Nicholas at outside linebacker.


Do u guys think they want Biermann to completely change 2 olb or do u still see him as our other de and if he isn't de who is going 2 step up and start opposite of Osi?

I would be all for Beirmann switching to OLB. Beirmann is way more athletic and is solid in coverage.... way better than Nicholas. Isn't Nicholas 30 now? He is expendable next season. Kroy can still provide a pass rush from the OLB position. I would love if Goodman and Osi were our 2 DEs.
