Default Fields at NT

Based on Fields session with the media he has the starting NT possition nailed down.

Thoughts?

Not surprised. He played pretty well in San Fran and I'm sure that will continue here.

You're aware that he was #3 on the depth chart behind Sopoaga and Franklin, right?

I wonder if there has been a position of need on any team that has gone as ignored over the years as badly as DT/NT now then in Denver over the past several decades

Not ignored......just failed at their numerous attempts.

Think about it. Every year they've drafted and signed multiple FAs to play along the DLine. They've just guessed wrong far more than they've guessed right.

What ever happened to the Dumervil to DT experiment? It was pretty fun watching him get pushed back eight yards every play.

Hmm, Fields has the most experience of any DT on our roster, he is Nolan's guy from San Fran, he is one of the few guys with experience in the 3-4, is it really any surprise he is currently the front runner for the job? Training camp will be a competition for this spot, and then we will see if Fields can hold onto it. I really doubt he is way out in front for the job at this point, there just aren't any other candidates that have any true claim on it. gcver2ver3 has it right, wait until we have seen what the other guys can do before we jump to any conclusions.

315 is not all that small for a NT after all:

DALLAS:
Tim Anderson 315
Jay Ratliff 302

SAN DIEGO
Jamal Wiliiams 348
Ian Scott 302

PITTSBURGH
Casey Hampton 325
Chris Hoke 305

NEW ENGLAND
Vince Wilfork 325
Titus Adams 305
Ron Brace 330

NY JETS
Kris Jenkins 349
Howard Green 320

CLEVELAND
Shaun Rogers 350
Robaire Smith 310

BALTIMORE
Haloti Ngata 330
Justin Bannan 305

Not all that many jumbos in the league after all ...

If he is any good wonder why San F. would let him go, doesn't appear
to be a money issue.

Yes, because it's someone with experience in the system and allowed for greater draft and FA flexibility.

Flexibility does not = ignoring the **** out of the spot.

It was a slight money issue, since they had just payed two young guys (Sopoaga and Franklin) that played a similar position and draft a young DE/DT (Balmer) in the first to also play that role.
