Do you think Ferentz is worthy of a practice squad spot? I know we're talking about the least consequential part of a roster but there's absolutely no redeeming qualities to this particular player. He's one of the worst offensive linemen I've ever seen play in the NFL and is 31 years old. If his...
Don't forget how much we used a 6th OL against MIA. We seem to always include a healthy dose of that whenever we have the appropriate personnel (rookie Solder, Cam Fleming) regardless of what system we run. It seems Bill likes Onwenu in that role.
My guess is it was more about matchups than "saving" anyone. I don't see a lot of separation in quality among our edge players, so I'd expect to see some guys be inactive one week and starting the next based on the opponent.

Yes, it wouldn't be a new development though. Pretty standard in sub packages, at least since some point last decade. Mark Barron and Deone Bucannon were early, prominent examples of this. We used Chung a lot in that manner.
I would never take Dez over McCourty, but we didn't take the second coming of DMac over Metcalf. We took Harry. I can't claim to have been right about this all along though--I absolutely hated Metcalf as a prospect.
This 100000x. Arians has a long, storied history of throwing his players under the bus. What he said about Brady's picks today is probably factually correct, but it's the kind of talk that should only happen during private film study.
