Haha so we just signed OL Justin Murray and he is limited already? How fitting!

Forget the game for a second.

After watching from the stands as the ambulance come onto the field and took Dane Jackson away, giving me horrible Kevin Everett flashbacks...

I'm just so glad the guy is okay. Whether he plays this week, next week, or five weeks from now, I'm glad he has no lasting damage. Hallelujah, amen.

Yeah it was my first live game and that ambulance was brutal. So happy he is already on the field.

Not super concerned about Benford if Dane Jackson can go on Sunday. Certainly rooting for his health, but I think the drop in Benford v Elam is likely small to negligible. Hoping this is the last week without Tre and we are playing Jackson/White on the outside at home vs. Pittsburgh. At that point Elam and Benford become depth. 

 

The reason Poyer doesn't get the credit he is due nationally is his ability to diagnose and support run plays. Those plays just don't show up on the stat sheet. He'll be a huge loss against Baltimore if he isn't ready to go.

Elam played great. When White comes back Jackson is going to the bench. Elam needs experience so he is solid in the playoffs.

We aren't benching marginally better 6th round rookie Christian Benford so that Elam can get experience. We aren't benching the player that is significantly better in Dane Jackson so that Elam can get experience. Especially without Hyde and a possibly still banged up interior DL. 

Elam will rotate in, but Dane Jackson isn't getting benched when Tre comes back.

Elam was a 1st round pick for a reason, if he's improving at his biggest weakpoint zone coverage then he could absolutely move up the depth chart.

Right, so I can get behind that. If/when Elam is the better player he will start. It is certainly possible that happens at some point this year. This staff has made a career of sitting rookies forever in favor of vets regardless of draft position. Nobody is starting for "experience". They will only start because they are starters. 

I took the post as Elam starting now regardless of who is better for the purpose of experience. If OP thinks Elam will start because he is the better player right now and will start that is fine. But it isn't what was said.

I agree.  I was at the Everett game as well as the game last week, and was having flashbacks to Everett and how sick I felt at that time.  So glad that Cam appears to be ok.

I wonder if Lawson gets more playing time in this one. He contained jackson really well years ago. He seems to do well on occasion containing athletic qbs.

He was phenomenal in that game. That was Lamar’s MVP season I think when Baltimore was rolling everyone. 
Lawson really confused Jackson and he could not read him on a few occasions and the plays got blown up.
