    "He'll definitely play a role for us," Young said. "There are six defensive ends on the roster, so no one knows what's going to happen in terms of who's going to start and who's going to come off the bench. Ziggy is pretty good, but he's got a lot to learn, too."

    Sounds like something someone who is about to lose the starting job would say.

    Your bias is showing through.

    I worry that the learning curve will be to steep for ziggy. He may get cut or traded before he can figure out how to play football.

    Part of the blame should be placed on the shoulders of bronca - he didn't recognize the "athletic" talent. Then again, if you've never really been exposed to "athletic" talent, you tend to go with what you know.....grit.

    I hope Ziggy does well. He has a great story and seems to be a great person. I wish him the best this year.

    Staying healthy is the key for Ziggy. He relies so much on his speed and quickness that even minor injuries that might impact that speed and quickness will diminish his effectiveness more than they would for a player who relies more on strength and/or football savvy.

    Can't wait to see what ziggy can do this year. By seasons end, we hope to see him starting and making some highlight reels.

    sid 6.7,

    He isnt the first player to go to the NFL so early in a football career and he wont be the last. JPP for the Giants had even less experience than Ziggy did and he is a legitimate star in the League. I think Ziggy will do just fine. His raw talent is off the charts.

    I really really want it to work out for this kid but I am afraid it wont. Going from HS ball to the College level is a massive jump, I can't imagine with only three years playing experience going from College to the pro's. I guess he has gotten this far so who knows what he can do.

    Best of luck to this young man. Here's hoping he lives "The Dream" and becomes as good a player as the Detroit Lions believe ha can.

    Oh no! News flash! A coach had to adjust a player's stance...and in the NFL of all places. Quick, get CNN on the phone!
