It actually looked like red was going to be starting next to Mebane with Bennett on the outside, at least that A very common formation. I'd give the nod to Tony McDaniel and his experience as well over Hill, I think they just wanted to give Jordan the looks as he would need more reps to become a productive member of the rotation. I liked how he was able to penetrate, but don't think he looked all that great (I feel it may be due to him playing with Jesse, who was awful, that made him look better) overall.

I'd be worried with a halfseason or more of absence, but I think we'll be fine the first few games of the year without him. Also, if that article is true, it won't even be that long.

Tatupu64 brought up a good point, however, his greatest value will be spelling Mebane this season.

I thought Hill was having an excellent preseason actually. This sucks. Opens up a spot for Howard to show off though, I do agree with that.


My thoughts echo everyone in this thread, especially the point about not missing for the first few weeks. He's looking like a solid Pick, but he's still depth right now and I don't think our rotation will be hurt too much in the first quarter or so if the season.
I think he's already are primary backup for Mebane, who has always performed best with about 75% of the snaps. I do think it's notable.


I'm with you. Hill has actually looked great this preseason and looked to be our starter alongside Mebane. I think this is a bigger loss than every cares to think if he misses substantial time (which it appears he will not).


McDaniel will start, Hill will get alot of snaps behind Mebane tho. McDaniel would have been getting the bulk of the snaps had he been healthy. Hill looks very promising.

Plush brings up something I've noticed and have been saying for the last couple weeks. Looks like Big Red is moving back to the inside for a significant portion of his time on the field with Bennett playing LDE in the base defense.

Bennett as also looked damn near dominating almost every snap hes been out there. We gotta get him locked up long term, hes the future at LDE. Really hope Red excels inside now that hes a bit older and more established.
