Wow Unibomber, your so ecstatic to throw dimitrius underwood under the bus for being bipolar and suicidal (not his fault), but then violently protect Keneche (also not his fault for being sick). Is this Keneche? Uni-bomber, you should know from your analytical autistic ways that Dimitrius had 4 sacks in 19 professional games in only two years playing time...one could assume he wouldve achieved 11 in 4 years was he not nuts. And your **** personal attacks uni-bomber, they're making me scared, because when you're putting on your pretty red lipstick tonight and going through your list of people to kill, someone just might get it, and thats what scares me, that it might be my fault, cause I have broken the pinata. pinata, thats a funny word, I wish i could put the tilde on it...Oh yeah, two more things...DEFINITELY WHOPNER and KMART SUCKS...YOU KNOW what I mean!
Be honest and admit it: there was no difference in your mind between a young man coming down with a dreaded disease and a player being a bust for our team. You're just rationalizing now and trying to deflect. Get help.

Keneche played 4 years, starting most games

Underwood almost made it through a practice

If you can generalize these two players into the same category as 'bust', your definition is looser than a pucker cheerleader after a twelve pack.

Here's some info:
"In 2005, Edwards started the first six games at strong-side defensive end before giving way to Ninkovich the second half of the season. He finished with 28 tackles (22 solos), 5.5 sacks and eleven stops behind the line of scrimmage. He also intercepted a pass and batted away another."
And from the same scouting report site:
"Griffen re-committed to the program in 2009, and re-emerged as the playmaker USC thought he could become. His performance in the spring had scouts buzzing and a breakout season in which he posted 45 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss and eight sacks in earning second-team all-Pac-10 honors. Blessed with good size, strength and the athleticism to jump up the board in workouts, Griffen is an intriguing prospect who might be just scratching the surface of his potential."
*****
Sounds like Edwards was a solid 4th round pick coming in, who was more consistent, and has developed steadily, while new 4th round pick Griffen has been less consistent, but comes in with a much higher upside potential. If they can keep him focused, his 1st to 2nd round projection suggests he'll be the better DE in the NFL.
With him now on the roster, it would have been nice if someone took Edwards for the 1st round pick; Robison could be the new starter, with Griffen ready to back up both DE spots. That extra pick could have landed one of the higher ranked CB's or a top DT prospect.
I looked it up too. I wouldn't mind keeping Edwards. We saved some cash and he should get market value, not what he thinks is market value. However, I said it before and I'll say it again, he wants out. I guess we wait until June 15th to find out.

Did any one read the comment made by GM Holgren? Colt McCoy is not going to play this year. If Claussen is such a sure bet, Why did the panthers pick up 2 more quarterbacks for him to compete with?
If QB is a easy position to judge, Why did Chicago picked another QB to back up Jay the Baby Cutler?

They will sign a couple G's and T's off the street in the next few days. The Vikings wants to save some money for the couple of years so they can move to Los Angeles. I hope they do not move to LA. I will no longer be a fan. You can not have "Vikings" in the land of fruits and nuts.It does not fit.

I'll say this: he's a project. If he stays humble and continues getting his act together, he'll be alright. He came into USC about as hyped as any d-lineman could be hyped. While he showed flashes of brilliance, he also showed many signs of immaturity. Apparently he had an attitude that the upperclassmen didn't appreciate all that much, and he had a few run-ins with them. He wisened up a bit and started to show a better work ethic this year. He would have benefited from another year in college, but what can you do. I hope he can became an able replacement for the previous Trojan d-lineman you guys lost a couple years back: Kenechi Udeze.

Small anger issues?

Most of the time these small 'issues' are a clear sign of more deeply imbedded abnormalities.

Hire a team of professionals, make them work round the clock, and post the prognosis.

I'd bet I'm right about you.

when someone turns accusations back and imitates, its usually a sign of autism. Sorry dude. However, personally, I wouldnt want to offend autistic people so you're probably just a gun toting, bomb making nut. Please dont go out and kill any of those people on your list...for one thing, they were probably 100% in wronging you..its just a shame that your type of personality hasnt been genetically removed from the world....itd be a better place. So thats that dipshit, now you can have the last word, because I know you cant help but responding you #ucked up freek!
