    Leeching would be much worse in Jacksonville.
    I don't feel the need to elaborate, I think the reasons are obvious.

    • Hoping he is there at 51 for the Bears. Bears take him or Will Sutton with that pick.

        That is an interesting point... didn't think of that.

            Is that his brother Louis that was murdered? (

            Well, with a little better understanding how it goes in the neighborhood, many people don't travel more than a few miles. I had a friend that taught in South Central, and Compton, and had students that never saw the sea. I also have known people that have taught in Harlem and the Bronx that have never seen the New York landmarks. Statue of Liberty, Empire ST Bldg, Times Square, etc. Times square is what 70 blocks from the beginning of Harlem? There is not a lot of mobility, due to abject poverty or other commitments. Looking at the poor in NOLA, in '05, I am thinking poverty is the big one. Most commitments were canceled with the hurricane. The only people that stayed for that one were the ones who had no choice; e.g., 8th ward.

            Some owners are better than others at 'edumacating 'their players.

              Pretty sure that's Wilfork.

                • It is. Found a picture of our Louis' brother. Was not Vince sized.

                  Must be a lot of "draft comparisons" between Louis and Vince.

                        Niche position, injury history, weight control issues in the past, limited productivity last year... The guy is a legit 1st round talent, but he and Tuitt didn't show it last year.

                            Agreed on Tuitt. But when Nix played, he played well. I get the injury concerns, but that's true for almost any man that size, which gets back to the niche position thing. Nix is only going to play nose, and how many teams really need one?
                            Surprised though, at a couple of the interior DLs who got picked ahead of him, especially Timmy Jernigan. Dude spent most of the fourth quarter of the title game kneeling on the sidelines catching his breath. You couldn't pry Big Lou out of a game like that. And Nix never flunked a drug test.
                            He'll be a steal in the third for someone.

                              I actually thought he was the only noticeable defender besides Teo giving 100% all of the way through the 4th quarter against Bama.

                              The twitter thing is just stupid. Not saying you are for pointing it out, but that it was ever brought up.

                                NFL front office types really hate it when players have a brain, don't they. And effort's BS. Nix played as hard as anyone.
                                Think you mean senior year?

                                • I really don't think Louis Nix played as hard as anyone on the team. There is a reason a DT are flying off the board and Nix is chilling. I don't know about you but I would hve even taken Schewnke last year over Nix.

                                        Who said that?

                                        You need to stop trolling me, and I speak for everyone on this. You want there to be a problem between us because it's apparently fun, but I have no problem with you. I give you credit when you post well (did you miss that rep last week?) and let you know when you're not. It just so happens you haven't been lately IMO.

                                        Stop searching for haters. I don't have time to draw lines in the sand and pick fights.

                                        And I never came close to saying we had a QB batte. All I said was that Malik outplayed Golson in the spring game, which I still believe, and I posted over and over THAT NIGHT that Golson should still be the starter.

                                        I know you and ndinla want there to be something between us because you thrive on drama, but I don't have the energy for drama. I repped him last week too for a good point he had.

                                        I don't have time for grudges, so stop trying to start something.

                                        I'm above it.

                                          I like both of them, and I certainly agree Nix had less of a year last year than in 2012. But I think the reason he's falling is injury concerns and system fit. "Effort" is something teams use as a way to run players down.
                                          Maybe a few teams are turned off by a guy with as much personality as him. But I have a hard time with that when I think about all the psychopaths in the NFL and then Nix, who's never had a wink of trouble. I guess they're more worried about a guy with a sense of humor.

                                          • The effort knock is bullshit. There have been plenty of plays I've seen where the LBs are completely out of position and as the safety is coming up you can see Nix hauling ass trying to get the player. It is horseshit that he has dropped this low. Donald going before him is understandable, he's a different type of DT, better for a 4-3. But Jernigan and Sutton? Hell no. Just fuels my hate for the stupid Bears.

Ended up in a great spot. Wish my Pats took him (pissed about their draft so far), and hope he tears it up in Houston.

                                                                                      You apparently were bothered because I posted an 'oh snap' gif when you said Kona > Nix. I would have posted that GIF to anyone who said that. It was nothing personal and 'oh snap' is not offensive or insulting.

                                                                                      But you somehow thought it was 'fighting words' and illogically brought up 'just like Malik is better than Golson', which is nothing but stupid, because 1) I never said that and 2) I said the opposite and 3) even if I did say that, it doesn't relate to anything that's happened in this thread.

                                                                                      It's clear you follow me around trying to argue with me. I don't want to PM you. I don't want to argue with you. I want you to find something better to do than obsess over arguing with me.

                                                                                      Don't try to start something then back out and play stupid. Just grow up, it's a lot easier.

                                                                                      Again, I'm tired of telling you this.

No matter — in Romeo Crennel’s defense, and with the right kind of coaching, Nix can still be a huge factor in the middle of Houston’s defense.

                                                                                                    The pros are looking for someone who can be inserted into the DLine and least potentially play all the downs. They are looking for someone who will not wilt. Coach has been warning us that Lou needs to get his "work volume" up [i.e. his ability to go full-out for a greater number of plays before tiring] for every year of Lou's career. This is what the pros are concerned about.

                                                                                                    They are NOT concerned about whether he will give all he has in his tank at any given moment, just that the tank runs a bit dry too soon. Mayock is EXACTLY right about this: there is no quit in Lou but when he gets tired he cannot stay low, begins to stand up, and gets emired in the blocking and often even turned --- something which does NOT happen when he's got energy.

                                                                                                    There's no issue about Lou loving football, being any kind of problem, being too nice on the field, quickness, nor raw speed. They probably have legitimate concerns about his resolve to get down to 330 and stay there. They probably also have some concerns as to whether his "connectors" [tendons, hamstrings] can support his excess weight when he tries to run down an opponent [as we've seen him try to do] and thereby make him a minor injury risk.

                                                                                                    It's all about weight and its consequences. Kelly knew that from day one. None of that minimizes my own fondness for the big guy --- one of my all-time favorite players.


                                                                                                    p.s. guys, could we just be willing to cut personal debates really short before they ruin threads? That would be most appreciated. ... I mean, who the hell cares --- certainly not the rest of us.
