90-Isaac Sopoaga: Started at left defensive end . . . He continued to play into the fourth quarter, as he moved to nose tackle. . . It's very interesting that a starter played that long . . . . Managed one tackle.
96-Kentwan Balmer: Saw action at nose tackle early in the second quarter . . . This was the best I've seen him play. He was getting upfield with the pass rush, and he looked stout against the run, too. . . . Did a great job, while working against RT Erik Pears of reaching out to swat the ball as Gradkowski was throwing, leading to McKillop's interception .
Isaac has had his chance and despite all his physical attributes has basically sucked and we still don't know what position he plays....Balmer was a 1st round pick and looks to be coming around hopefully.
I say put Balmer in there at DE and see what he can do.
