I think after the Bears game they asked him if it was "like riding a bike." And his response was something like, "a bike I've never ridden before."
Sirles was a tackle in college as well.

Looks more like a baseball, lineup strategy than it does for football. Cohesiveness on the O-line is a crucial and it's a fine line you don't want to mess with if you can help it.

I just came in here to post that. Yeah I believe it is. Any kind of acknowledgement like that is pretty legit

Hasn't it been known that Everson has been playing with plantar fasciitis? That's probably what it is, but I'm sure he'll play.

Newman DNP. I was hoping Griffen would be 100% with the rest.

Line now is -5

I don't think you can be 100% with 2 weeks of rest from plantar fasciitis. I don't know.

Source to Ben Volin says Bradford dresses Sunday. Teddy unknown.

Has Sam been activated?

I thought so. I would honestly dress all three. If something happens to Keenum, who knows if either Bradford or Teddy will hold up.

That just means sitting someone else, though.

I think that's the situation we're in whether we like it or not though. I think Teddy's one freak injury being healed is more likely than the continued beatings that Sam has taken to his knees over several years but it's like PMP said, I don't know that we can truly rely on either to stay healthy if they're called upon.

Well it sounds like Newman is not doing well... Maybe this week it could be him and see how things go?

I wonder how bad Newman's injury is, Zimmer tends to let the vets rest a lot more.
