DCFanatic Radio – Why Carter, Claiborne and Crawford start ASAP

Today on DCFanatic Radio I discuss why Bruce Carter, Mo Claiborne and Tyrone Crawford should start against the Giants on September 5th…

DCFanatic Radio – June 22, 2012

Think I was making sense in there about the defense wanting to attack on early downs in the opener on Sept 5th.

Hope you guys enjoy the show.

One Response to DCFanatic Radio – Why Carter, Claiborne and Crawford start ASAP

  1. The Soothsayer says:

    I’m not in favor of starting rookies, Fanatic. Tom Landry would only start rookies when it was absolutely necessary. He wanted his players to spend at least a year observing and learning the pro game, getting acclimated to its speed. But I understand your point. It may be absolutely necessary this year.

    For a rookie to have an impact his first year in the league is really quite rare. Darren Woodson did it. He came in and won a Super Bowl right off the bat. But players like him and circumstances like that are few and far between.

    Look at Aikman. He was thrown to the wolves, and he didn’t win a single game in 89. Steve Walsh won the 1 in 1-15 that season.

    It took Irvin three years to become the Playmaker. And there were constant calls for him to be cut before then, because he kept getting injured.

    I can’t remember if Emmitt started his rookie year. I think he did, but I’m not sure. Still, it took him a year or two to fully develop.

    I don’t know these guys Claiborne, Carter, Crawford. I’ve never seen them play. But if they can win their starting positions in training camp and the pre-season, more power to them. These are desperate times.

    It’s going to be a tough season opener to win though. The Giants are confident, defending champions. They are not going to show to lose their home opener, not against the Cowboys And it’s going to be a long season. Dallas has a tough schedule, not only within the division but with their opponents from outside the division. And as the season progresses and teams accumulate game film, it’s not going to get any easier.
