OK, maybe not Chris Scott
. Sounds like the rookie may be heading to IR.
Crap. I was hoping he'd get a shot. IMO, Jon Scott would be a better option than Foster, unless Foster improves dramatically in the off season. Scott had decent feet from what I remember of his days at Texas, and Foster wasn't exactly a wall in pass blocking schemes. Also, sicne Scott played under our new o-line coach, he'd already have a grasp on the scemes the guy runs and could act as a coach in the huddle for the linemen.
Jon Scott, bounced from the powerhouse Lions and Bills lines, has impressively bad stats.
As a Lion, 6 sacks allowed in 6 starts, 5 false starts.
As a Bill, 10 sacks in 8, with 5 more false starts.
Maybe Coach Koogs sees some raw potential not manifesting itself on gameday.
Foster had 0.5 sacks allowed in 4 starts, inside, and 0 false starts. Certainly a different challenge outside, but is Foster slower than Colon? Really? Hard to imagine.
Jon Scott did play some LT at UT, but definitely looks to be in the Foster/Colon footspeed tier. Maybe next year. Or this, if he heals fast. Not sure of his prognosis as yet, but always a bad harbinger heading into camp hurt.
