    Pouha isn't Jenkins, but as I've said before: If you are a *starting nose tackle in a 3-4 base* you are by definition NOT A JAG. There is such a dearth of guys who can do that job. And by "that job" I mean occupying two lineman in the run game every palay. Backfield penetration is gravy for a true NT in a 3-4.

    I'll be curious to see who is in on 4-3 fronts. I think it's almost a waste to have Pouha and Ellis out there at the same time. My ideal four man front is one of those two guys, plus DeVito, Wilk, Coples. Best run/pass balance we can field in a true 4-3.

    How is it that some nose tackles can't stay healthy but others (like that damn Wilfork) can?
    Vince is 2 years younger than Pouha, it is not just the wear but the body's abilty to heal itself diminishes each year.

    In the 4-3 I'd much rather have Coples play inside. He is a much better inside player. Most of his pressure this preseason came while he was play DT in the 4-3.

    Same while he was at NC.
