When I was watching their preseason game tonight vs the Titans, if you notice, Seattle's entire D-line is at least 300 pounds! DE/DT Red Bryant was interviewed after the game and he said Pete Carroll is running some form of a modified 3-4 scheme. Carroll wants bigger, bulkier lineman. In fact, most of them are around 320 or more! Where is HawksFan when you need him?
yeah but if you ask the Dline Coach Wills stronger n better than most of their 320lb lineman..but Pete didn't see that n signed a WR from USC.. their lost welcome to the niners Tukuafu
Originally posted by simplyfloyd: really like this guy. I was watching him, he seems to hold his position well when the play goes away from him. He's got a lot of strenght, pretty good speed and a great move to the inside.
I think he should start opposite justin smith. I swear this guy could give us 6-8 sacks and help against the run. Great addition 49ers!!!
yup so true!!! I've watched him played 3years in Oregon! Im a HUGE fan of his!! He's great on and off the field! hard worker..great guy too very humble!
Sack 1st play of the game = I like him already. Balmer who? SF got a guy who looks like he can play and more than a snowball's chance in hell to pick up some talent better than Balmer next year in the draft.
Balmer trade coming back to bite us? Hardly. My prediction: Seattle is going to regret getting rid of Tukuafu more than SF will regret getting rid of Balmer
I missed the game doing a run from LA to SF and Back.
You guys got to be kidding me. Tukuafu an unrestricted rookie free agent comes in here at 6'4 285 plays DE and registers a sack in his first games as a niner.
I am now a fan. The football gods were messing with me. I was a little down with the scrapping of Balmer. The draft was to far away to make up his loss.
