Brooking seemed to do a good job with the green dot, but suffering a concussion this past game at his age I wonder how long he'll be out, and whether he'll get much more playing time this year.
DJ will not be around until at least week 11 if then IF he is in game shape..

I think we all know he will not be ready for that till week 12-13 ..Might play IF there are more injuries.. but most likely will be cut to save salary if the kiddies come in and play well..

Chance are by then we will be out of the playoff hunt.. IF NOL and the DOLTS at home get us.. not to mention the begals.. the odd sof sweeping the last games of the season are pretty remote..

consider the buc and ravens are later games..


NOW as for DJ taking over at MIKE..

unless something happens with brookings (see above) DJ will not see any part of that spot..

As for his history with the team.. he played WLB for one year as a rookie.. then the next year he was moved to SAM because gold came back after more or less getting fired in TPA.. bad move by mikey,, then in 07 was moved to mike.. had loads of tackles but few for no gain and even fewer for a loss.

He was demoted from play calling mid season because he flat was to dumb to relay the calls in from the sideline.. and to make a change in the coverage was well not his forte..

Most of his tackles have been drag down stops which means to the dreamers in the world that they gained positive yards on them often after making the first down.

he also was moved back to WLB in 08 (after his "great year in 07") and 11..

in 09-10 he played inside weak side LB in the 3-4 for Josh, Nolan and I forget who in 10..

DJ is a tackling machine when he is not drunk, but do not ta him with playing MLB because they are tasked with making the defensive reads at the LOS and calling play plays..

Something Brookings is head above him..

please let the bromance for this moron go it is unbecoming of anyone with a brain.. he is gone next year unless he takes a massive pay cut.. and for 4 games this year I do not think John will pay the 7 weeks worth of salary for him..
