  • Someone on Twitter asked Brock if he was in game shape. He responded saying something to the nature of "No way Carroll would let Schneider sign me." Guessing Carroll doesn't care for Brock. This is a fairly low risk signing. If the guy is in decent enough shape, he will only have one job. Get the quarterback. He will probably be very situational, if used at all. I was thinking the other day about the CB we signed off the street years back. What was his name?

  • OMG OMG I cant believe you guys don't see the connection..
    let me point it out for everyone. on WHY PATRICK CHUKWURAH is on our team.
    1) Nigeria is on the SAME continent as TANZANIA.
    2) Nigeria AND Tanzania both share the same common language..

    I just don't understand how we all missed the connection.

  • For the record he isn't replacing Clem. Irvin is replacing Clem in the system. He is fine for special teams and as an occasional edge rusher. He won't have that much impact in this game anyway. If he does it would be ridiculous.

  • Thought he was a safety. Crazy, wasn't that. Working as an insurance agent, career over, then Mike Holmgren calls to have you play in the playoffs. Didn't he recover a fumble or cause one or something?

  • This guy will be a situational pass rusher and depth on STs.

    This could actually be a good signing. The UFL keeps guys in good game shape and this guy will have a limited role. If all he has to do is go after the QB on passing downs, he could be fine.

  • Well this is a fascinating development.

    He'll be nothing more than a spare tire at the bottom of the depth chart in case (god forbid) something happens to irvin or scruggs, but who knows... Maybe he comes in and has a Rocky Balboa "stuff in the basement" kind of performance. That'd be cool.

    It's funny. I had an epiphany driving home that we were going to sign Ricki Foley. LOL. Silly Canhawk...

  • way i see it is he'll come in on third downs or 2nd and longs where we suspect pass. He'll be told to beat his man 1 on 1 and take ryans head off. WE are playing on turf, in a dome, where speed counts. and if this guy still has his speed, and some motivation, he could make an impact. He'll probably only play 10-15 snaps unless he just impresses in practice this week. but he's in shape, has some nfl experience and the speed that the FO likes. How hard is it to chase ryan around the pocket a few times.

    Sounds good to me. id rather have a few guys rotating in to keep em all fresh anywayz. ATL passes more than it runs. im on board

  • I'm actually glad they're bringing in an older player. I'm guessing at age 33 he knows how to prepare himself for a game and won't try and play beyond himself like a young up and comer might try and do. We just need solid play win minimal mistakes.

  • Two words: CHASE BLACKBURN.
    Three words: SUPER BOWL VICTORY.
    PATRICK CHUKWURAH <=> CHASE BLACKBURN (Seahawks version)
    One word: TANZANIA (had to throw that in)

    The ONLY reason the NY Giants were Super Bowl Champs was the incredible play by Chase Blackburn, covering Rob Gronkowski on a Brady scramble, sprinting back after being beaten, and then out-jumping Gronk for the ball, and coming down with the pick. Unbelievable!! NOT supposed to happen!! Who is this guy? That play, by CHASE BLACKBURN, more than any other allowed the Giants to win. (Just barely more so than the Mario Manningham sideline tightrope play)
    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012 ... ckbur.html

    I just get the feeling this guy PATRICK CHUKWURAH will be involved in a key play somewhere, a sack, cause a fumble, recover a fumble and return it for a score. Somewhere along the road, he will make a key play. I trust the FO judgment on this. I expect they will only ask him to do things he can do, and use him as a situational pass rusher on clear passing situations.
    Two (bad) words: Etric Pruitt.
    Three (bad) words: (Seahawks) Super Bowl Loss.
    That's the difference between the John Schneider front office and the Tim Ruskell front office.

    Patrick Chukwurah for the win. Book it!!

  • pehawk wrote:Where's Sharkhawk? Our WAC/MWest scout may have more info.


    Guy was a freaking unstoppable monster in college. I believe the last game I saw in person was a BYU/Wyoming game in which he was playing. Guy was a total beast. This was years ago, and this was old school MWC ball. I don't know how he's developed since, but I thought he was going to be a machine in the NFL when I saw him play in college. I haven't watched him play since then that I can recall. But he reminded me of a guy that played for San Diego State that ended up being really good just a bit before and he played for the Packers. I'm trying to remember his name.... crap.... who was that dude. Initials were "KGB". Kabeer G something Bimela? What the heck. That guy. He had a high motor in college and was a destructive force. Chukwurah was like that guy. I thought he'd be a better pro than KGB. I was wrong on that one apparently, but he is right up there with guys that really impressed me over the years in the WAC and later MWC. Guys like Kirk Morrison, Dave Hawthorne, Brett Keisel, Paul Kruger (always disrupting in the backfield), Jerry Hughes (similar guy... ALWAYS in the backfield), Tank Carter, Eric Weddle (although he was a DB, the guy was everywhere and was a supreme blitzer).

    If I had to compare him to a Seahawk (which is what I always do when watching college players). I always thought Chukwurah was like Rufus Porter. A smallish guy that was probably more suited to LBer size wise, but had a high motor and would just get in the backfield consistently and wreak havoc no matter how big the guy on the other side of the line was. He seemed instinctive. Like Jerry Hughes, he just knew where to be and was immediately in the QB's face.

    I guess now they're depending on his smarts and his knowledge of lots of defensive systems and having the veteran tricks and such to come in and play if needed. I don't think it's a bad move. He's not going to come in and be Rufus Porter of course, but that's how he played in college. I am surprised now that I think back that he didn't have a really good NFL career, because he was one of those guys that seemed like he'd come in and just get to the QB, like KGB seemed to. To me, you could flip-flop either guy in college and I'd think you were getting a really good DE. Of course KGB had a much better career and was pretty dominant for a few years. I think he messed up his back or neck or some business though and kind of faded away.

  • In Pete we should trust!

    All this guy needs to do is get in Ryan's face a few times and contain quiz. Let's not forget how much help he will have around him. If the FO can find something special in this guy, then we should stand by them.


    We'll see Sunday (if this guy gets any playing time), what he's really made of.

    ***ETA***
    Thanks for the breakdown Sharkhawk! I think knowing multiple schemes will be very important for this guy to step in and make an impact. If he still has the moves, it'd be nice to let him teach up Bruce on some of the little things.

  • A little bit of info...

    Just don't say they're signing him off the couch. He may have been out of the league a few years, but this is a 250-pound personal trainer with less than 5 percent body fat. He led the United Football League in sacks the previous two seasons.

  • I don't even care if the FO made a mistake. They have hit SO many good ones in this three year period, I am giving them 3 strikes for sure and probably more.

    Dude sure looks like part though. It would be borderline hilarious if he actually does some damage.

    I know one thing, If Clem were in this game, it would be a feast. The pressure would be there. Our guys are deadly fast on dry turf and it surely works for us when it takes time for dudes like White and Jones to get downfield. The longer Browner has to cover anyone, the more concern I have. I hope he got some legs under him following the Skins game (I am sure he did)

    That was my thought. Look at the rest of her....face, legs, arms, etc. The only place she's fat is just her midsection......pregnant would be my first guess.
