    Yeah, sucks. :( This could be a problem...less D-line performance, 3rd-string CB, we might make Kaepernick look semi-elite this Sunday. DangeRuss is going to have to bring his A-game in a big way.

    Edit: Ah, I see you added the link.

  • Tough break. I didn't notice him getting hurt in the game but must be the lingering leg issues he was having all season. Doubt he gets re-signed next season is my guess.

    Jason Jones had a sore knee at various points this year, and Pete Carroll indicated he would be slowed this week.

  • Sucks to hear. I know he's been dealing with an injury for awhile now, but he was a solid inside presence and he will be missed. Looks like his plan to sign a one year deal this year to prove he was worthy of a long term contract didn't work out for him. He likely will only get another short term deal (whether it be here or elsewhere). I certainly hope he recovers well, and the next man up can handle the job. With Branch dealing with an Ankle issue, we are really getting slim there.

  • He's been hurt all season, I suspect. He hasn't shown the same quickness he did previously and in the pre-season.

  • There goes his large payday. The dangers of a one year contract and why players do not like the franchise tag. Although the tag provides a significant larger monetary protection.

  • While this really sucks and will be a hit to out pass rush, I think people here will be plesantly surprised with Fangupo is he gets a shot to actually play. He is a big man and is stout against the run. Is surprisingly good rushing the passer as well and has a high motor. I really liked him coming out of the draft last year and thought he was a 3rd or 4th round guy (didn't turn out that way but I probably would have graded him as a 4th).

  • Ugh. I'm hopeful our draft pick guys can make a difference, but we really needed him on the field. I'm seeing a definite need on the D-line again in 2013. :(

    Howard is behind Branch on the depth chart. They have Hebron Fangupo behind Mebane and Clinton McDonald.

  • Fangupo is no joke. Yes, I watched every game he played in college. The guy can be absolutely dominant. Why he wasn't already on a team is because most teams love the veteran presence inside. He is a legit NFL player though, and I think he'll surprise some of you if/when he gets on the field. He's quick for his size, he's always around the ball, and he can rush the passer. He is also good at getting his hands up to knock the ball down, and closing off the lane for runners. He's a space filler.

    I was stoked when the Hawks signed him, and I believe he would have been on the roster all season if Jones hadn't been signed to that one year deal. Good luck Hebron!

  • Shark you are very astute about these Utah & BYU guys so I hope you're right and he's a beast on Sunday. I too was excited about Fangupo when they acquired him, he could be a sleeper. It's now time for Jaye Howard to demonstrate he was worth a 4th round pick and deserves to play as a pro.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken.

    I'm a huge Florida fan, and watched a lot of Jaye Howard, and the talent is there. There were times he had my mouth drop, but he always struggled with inconsistency. I wonder if that is still an issue for him, as there were times he would just disappear.

    And shark, people are getting me excited on Fangupo, you have a player comparison. i just wonder his story, and why he is a PSder?

    RE: Hebron Fangupo

    We are spoiled into thinking every practice squad player is going to be a star. This guy is 27, sure he is big but he is not that athletic. There is not much to see there. One thing I have learned in my first few months in the .Net is that hawk players in general are a tad overrated when it comes to their actual value. I also have learned everyone should be fired after a loss. :th2thumbs:

    It's not like they have options at this point in the season.

    With Red Bryant plagued with plantar fasciitis and Alan Branch plagued by a bad ankle, this team is down to only one healthy two gap lineman in Brandon Mebane. That will not work.

    The promotion of Hebron Fangupo is timely and necessary. I'm looking for Hebron to see plenty of playing time Sunday night. It's going to be a huge opportunity for him.

  • I find it interesting that with a move like this and the release of Evan Moore, that the Hawks are simply bringing up guys off their practice squad and not signing players off the street. Same thing happened when they signed Ron Parker off Carolina's PS, as he was with the team earlier in the season. Tells me that the team likes it's depth and players a lot more than in recent years when an injury immediately brought a street free agent signing. Hopefully a guy like Jaye Howard is able to step up. Don't think he's seen the game day roster too often so far.

  • Scruggs is looking decent as a rotational player. I was not all that impressed with Jones. He never had a great push I think his knee is still healing. For Scruggs all he really has to do is watch his gap and get a good push.

  • I just believe if Hebron can play the run effectively, and eat up some space, then why not get him some playing time, especially with Branch being hobbled.

  • He doesn't look like a speed guy, but is a decent A gap guy. I think the key is not to get false starts as this is his first real game in NFL, so being the start, false start penalties is something to watch for.
