    Crable

    I haven't re-watched the game yet, but he was making some plays out there and always seemed to be around the ball when he was in there.

    I guess we now know why Mckenzie didn't get a shot this year. If Crable and Guyton can be productive subs at ILB, that would be huge for us.

    Re: Crable

    It's really cool to see BB's vision and expectations, for the most part, somewhat pay off.

    Obviously, people are at different stages of development, but I am always surprised who starts or who gets a lot of looks early in the game.

    Brace started last night with over Deaderick and Warren, right?  Cunningham barely played.

    I didn't even expect Wright to play much with this minor injury lately.   He was a beast.

    But, yeah, Crable needs to keep taking the baby steps.

    Re: Crable

     Crable is strictly an OLB/sub-DE.  Nowhere near the body type to play ILB.  However, you're right that he made his presence felt last night.  He was consistently around Roethlisberger as a pass rusher both from the stand-up position and with his hand in the ground as a DE.

    Re: Crable

    You're right. My bad. They must have run some stunts with him because it seemed like he was attacking the gap over the left guard whenever he was in there.

    Not that this has anything to do with Crable, but while we're on the subject of Pats draftees, Ted Larsen is starting at center for the Bucs and playing well in Jeff Faine's absence.  In fact, there's talk that they'll let Faine (and his large salary) go after the season.

    Re: Crable

    Crable was pretty good last night putting pressure on Roethlisberger.  On a few plays I actually witnessed him taking on a blocker in an attempt to stop a running play and he wasn't blown off the ball.  Not saying he's McGinest, but it's clear at the very least he might be a rotation guy a la Guyton since he seems to be able to pressure the passer.  Who knows, he might grow in to more.  

    Hey, at least he's playing and contributing, right?

    Re: Crable

    he was in the sub defense, which did seem to get more snaps at some points than the base defense so there was a lot more of crable and TBC and less of cunningham and ninkovitch. all the linebackers were pretty good though. and as for a previous question, the starting down linemen were deaderick, wilfork, and brace. warren came in as a sub rusher in the role that pryor usually plays. i think deaderick and brace have pretty much cemented themselves as the starting ends. who would have guessed that??

    I was sad to Larsen go, he is huge for a center and may well have been an upgrade over Koppen given time...  As for Crable he played well as a pure rusher but he wasn't much more than that, Cunningham started and played sparingly but we were playing downhill all night.  The defense was superb for the first three quarters.

    Re: Crable

    Crable may be good but he is a one-move-wonder...

    He has a blazing first step and a gapping stride so if he beats the tackle off the ball or anticipates the snap cound he has a good chance to pressure the QB and possibly get a QB hit or a sack...

    BUT that is his only move the Steelers RT was pushing him around like a wrag doll at times.

    Crable also has the tendency of avoiding good contact... Instead of using his right shoulder and creating leverage at the POA he tries to avoid contact completely and runs himself right out of the play.

    I do agree he looked better, he was around the ball more.

    Agreed, he is far from a starting outside linebacker.

    I watched the Bucs game specifically to see how Ted would perform.  He did ok.  He had two false starts.

    Re: Crable

    is he all we expected him to be NOO
    is he proving he deserves his roster spot and is not a complete bust- Yes
    As he sees more playing time will he finnally show he is one of the teams best rushers and pan out- Maybe

    Re: Crable

    Crable the third rounder has been around, and around, but injured all the time until this year.  He showed flashes in rookie camp.  His pass-rushing assets are his huge arms which keep blockers off of his body, so that he gets more chances to defeat a block, his extra height for deflecting passes, and reasonable explosion.  BB kept deciding that Crable's various injuries, while serious in the short term, were not career-threatening, and so he kept Crable in the hopes that he could pass-rush in the subpackage.  The media kept asking who would pass-rush for the Patriots.  Well, after Tully Banta-Cain at OLB there might be Crable, and also Cunningham. 

    The Belichick 3-4 tends to emphasize bull-rushing defensive linemen.  It emphasizes solid knockdowns first and hurries second, not necessarily sacks because some QBs always get rid of the ball while others don't.

    I was told by Dante S that Larsen was maybe the most difficult cut on the team, and they really tried to keep him (fianancially speaking). He will be a starting C in the NFL long after Koppen has retired.

    why would they give him extensive playing time when he performed pretty well and then cut him?  It just doesn't make sense.  They didn't even do it to bring someone else in.

    Crable was so much a beast that BB released him this afternoon. I guess you can stab the beast with the steely knife....I wonder who takes his roster spot?
