I already explained it... I was just copying tweets as they came in, I accidentally copied a tweet from The Game.



I would consider my own grammar to be quite adequate and comprehensible.

Bowman middle blitz, in backfld to tap gore

tweet from Phil Barber

I'm excited about this Bowman kid. Very intriguing prospect. Could be diamond in the rough, a real bad ass.

How is he a diamond in the rough? If it weren't for off the field issues he would probably would have been a late 1st early 2nd. Everyone knew he had talent, they just questioned his issues. The 3rd round, where he was drafted, is hardly the "rough."

A "diamond in the rough" would be someone whose skills and talents are questionable and not projected to be that great on the next level (e.g., Tom Brady), so they are drafted late or not drafted at all.

Another definition of diamond in the rough would be somebody whose skills and talents at blitzing/rushing the QB/pass rush are not projected to be the great at the next level. In other words, although the word is (and was pre-draft ) that Bowman's skill set was expected to translate best at the next level into playing inside, sideline to sideline and in coverage and generally not getting up the field he could turn out to be a diamond in the rough playing outside, blitzing, getting up the field and getting after the QB.

This is why he is an intriguing prospect...I think he has the **potential** to supplant Lawson and be the pass rusher we have been looking for, which is (like Mckillop) something I don't think a whole lot of people would have expected from him coming out of college.
Hmm Cody Wallace, 3rd string center huh?

Well that's the death knell. Wragge is a bigger bruiser of a player and IMHO would be a better center.

does Wragge know what blocking schemes to call for situations?

Obviously he knows somethin cause he's 2nd team. Wallace was in trouble and a project player with no starting experience. Now he's competing with Wragge - a proven NFL back-up.

The writing is on the wall for Wallace. Wragge can do your job and his own. Especially with 2 rooks waiting to unseat snyder and bass, there won't be room for him on this team...

I really think (as Maiocco had mentioned months back) management is pushing Nate Davis to win the #2 spot this season, no way in hell Carr remains #2 if Nate Davis has another productive preseason showing.

Dude we should've just straight kept Shaun Hill then....WTF!!!!

• The silver lining to Manny Lawson's absence? It's giving Ahmad Brooks more time to learn how to play linebacker. Brooks was used mainly as a pass rusher last year. This spring, he's playing in first-, second- and third-down situations, which means he's having to do a lot more coverage. He and Parys Haralson were the OLB starters; Travis LaBoy and Diyral Briggs were the backups. It will be very interesting to see whether Lawson or Brooks runs with the first-team defense when Lawson returns.

At least two times a week, Smith takes a few of receivers out on the field to throw the ball around. The sessions are designed to build a rapport among Smith and his wideouts. After all, Ginn is a newcomer and Crabtree only arrived at the midpoint last season. Smith said he tends to work on the patterns that he feels are his weaknesses.

He's injured, although you bring up an educated and well thought-out point.
