We have our 3 tech in Wolfe I think. We need a run stuffer.

Wolfe is far more than a "3 tech." He doesn't min rootin with the hogs in the 0-2, and can be effective in the 4-5.

I'm no fan of college DT's that are portrayed as "3 techs". I've seen too many fail to make an impact and usually become situational players.

Good example. A 3 tech going against our right side is going to get punched by Kuper right into Franklin. These kids are good in college, but rarely succeed against powerful NFL Guards that can punch 'em into next week.

Can anyone explain to me "balls to the wall" anyway? I have no idea what this means. If my balls were on a wall, I would be a little concerned.


My understanding is that this originated from airplanes.

The throttle levers had rounded ends ("balls"). So when pilots pushed the throttles to the maximum, the levers would hit the side of the control panel ("wall").

So "balls to the wall" came to mean to go all out, as fast as you can.


How about that...learn something everyday.

Yeah, but those aren't his strengths. As far as the Defensive Tackle Position, his strength is penetrating on the interior and setting the edge on the exterior.

I guess the 3-tech label was a poor choice of words.

His strength is passing rushing from the interior and when he's played the 3-tech spot, that's when he's made the biggest plays.
