    I want to see Elliott play vs. better competition over the next two preseason games.

    IMO the ILBs have looked better in the 1-gap scheme in which they don't have to read the play and react accordingly.

    What does this have to do with Elliot? Bradford is the ILB candidate.

    I think they should move this kid to the first stringers, see what happens. I'd seriously consider cutting our losses with Nick perry and going with this guy IF he continues to bring it.

    At least Elliott gets it:
    He knows that he's nothing special and that 3 sacks like that is just a flash in the pan. He's got to keep proving it every day because, while impressive in and of itself, that mini-performance doesn't matter much in the grand scheme of things.

    McGinn had (IMO) a very good article about Elliott yesterday. It talks about the challenges of his upbringing and how well he’s done in TC so far.

    He certainly was under my radar in TC before the Rams game. I have liked Mulumba’s potential and still do – he’s 6-3 and 260 and is very athletic. Elliott is about 5 pounds lighter but may be even more athletic. The article relates Elliott’s 40 yard dash (4.77), and says no LB at the combine had a longer wingspan than Elliott’s 82 inches. And his 10 5/8ths inch hands were the second largest.

    Thompson and McCarthy and staff have some very difficult decisions regarding OLBs and that’s a good thing. I would like to see Elliott against first teamers Friday and expect he’ll get snaps against second teamers. As the scout said, the “secret” of Elliott is out: Let’s see how far along he is.

    They can laugh at me all they want, but they may not be laughing much longer...... they had better step up their games as well.

    Why do two guys not on the team anymore need to step up their game?
