Man the d-line is just cursed it seems. Good thing Von isn't technically a d-lineman.

Maybe Dumervil is doing more than I think, but I do not notice him near the QB much this season. Reality is he is looking more and more like as situational type and not a starter.

well, everyone knew we overpaid on day 1, but most people (myself included) thought it was something that we just had to bite the bullet and do. since that day, he has zero sacks and about two healthy weeks.

Elvis was on the juice. Now he's not and he is a non factor. Hell I would juice up to get a payday like that... wouldn't you?

I wouldn't be surprised if they don't try to move him in the off season to 3/4 team.

Did Doom change his weight to play DE again? I recall Jarvis Moss commenting on it in his first training camp that he thought part of his health issues were from trying to gain weight to play DE. Doom had some good 3-4 seasons but he could've also gone back to his original, more natural, weight. If he's having to bulk up again, it could be more straining.

Dumervil had very good numbers in a 4-3 defense, so I don't see the change back to a 4-3 being a problem for him. But teams may have figured him out, his pass rush moves, so he needs to adjust with other things to be more of a factor.

Tear your pec muscle and see how much upward leverage you have and he is not healed completely.

He will get there.............

Robert Ayers is the best DL on this team, by a relatively wide margin IMO.

Elvis was absolutely enveloped the entire game. No burst, no change of direction, he just doesn't look healthy at all.

He is much better as a 4-3 DE than a 3-4 OLB, it is nice to see him playing more consistently

I'd rather we move to the 3-4 and get the correct personnel before moving him...he was a monster in the 3-4!

Hopefully the ankle sprain is NOT a high ankle sprain.

Let's be honest, if we didn't give him that contract and Elvis had walked, this board would've crashed and rightly so. Would've been right up there with Sharpe leaving.

I doubt we trade him either given the amount of guaranteed money still running, $12m or so in 2013.

Ugh. Hope at least one of them will be well enough for next week.

On the opponents side Matt Stafford is looking like a question mark. Don't wish him ill will, but purely out of concern for his well being I think he should, you know, play it safe and gave that leg plenty of time to heal...

I agree the injuries from this game are Brutal: Ayers, Doomervil and McGahee.

Stafford is hurt, too.

Violent game to be sure. And then when teams aren't it full strength, you're left to wonder at what might have been...

Our D line is just cursed....if they can't go, then what? Is just crap behind them? Yes, and McGahee's injury is bad too, as he was really flourishing in this O!!

We need to bring Vonnie Holiday back,so Doom could have another 17 sack season.
