Jason Worldis has never really done anything at ROLB. We've got 2 LOLBs in Woodley and Worilds. Everyone looks at Worilds stats and thinks he's gonna plug right in, but I think he's out of position at ROLB. Doesn't mean he can't eventually work it out, but it's not a natural position for him.
And I love Worilds. I've seen flashes of him where he plays better than Woodley at LOLB. I think he's a little more explosive.
OK, so now "it doesn't look good" (according to a recent post) for JH to be in the Tigger stripes. Maybe they were just using him to drive Dansby's (sp?) price down. Used like a rented mule on a holiday weekend, James, that what has become of you.
Now - if you were to come back home (to wear the Bumblebee outfit ... no, forget that part) to the B&G for a vets minimum plus performance target bonuses ... you would be ADORED in the locker room instead of having to start all over. There is probably no locker room out of 32 as much as on the South Side where they would take you in as one of their own ... because YOU ARE. You got bad advice from your agent ... it happens ... it can be moved on from.
And, Mr. Rooney - come on man (Sir), it's not like this guy was found with doobies in his car, or didn't show up to work in a hissy fit of wounded pride. He's given you his all, and probably Superbowl 6 besides. And, putting emotion aside, how much ri$$k is there to pay a guy who was getting stronger and stronger last year the vet minimum?
This can happen ... if he signs on and performs well, we can put more money into the offense (like maybe Bradhshaw?) ...
James in Black and Gold! VII in XIII!!!
I actually like Worilds and think that he will be ok. I've seen nothing to suggest that he will be dominant, but I think he will be somewhere around a Clark Haggans/Jason Gildon type level. A big concern is the health and injury issues that have plagued Worilds throughout his career and Woodley for the last 2 seasons.
Harrison is still a force that has to be accounted for against the run. He's not the pass rusher that he once was, but he still has considerable ability in that area. I don't think that he's going to be a DMVP, but I think he could absolutely still help this defense.
