    He needed to be because besides QB, we have the worst depth at that position. If J-Ball goes out hurt, Bingham has got to be able to step in and play well.

    If Bingham truly has improved significantly, I would hope they could rotate Jamal with him, especially in the second half.

    That would prevent Jamal from wearing down in the 4th quarter, like I saw happen in some games last season.

    Good. Bingham looked like a solid prospect as a rookie and then just sort of vanished. Nice to see he's reestablished himself. It would be a HUGE help if he can spell Jamal for 15-20 plays per game.

    It is nice to hopefully have a decent backup to Jamal.

    I haven't really paid attention to him this preseason.

    That might have to change.:yes:

    He had a pretty decent second half in the Seattle game.

    He actually got some push up the middle, and combined with Dobbins on a tackle-for-loss of the ballcarrier.

    One of them could still make the squad. They could carry 6 D linemen--Jamal, Igor, Castillo, Bingham, Cesaire and Smith/McKinney.

    Did I forget somebody? Or do you think there's no way we'll carry 6 DLs?

    Reif came up with a 53 man roster that included 7 DL:

    Jamal Williams
    Luis Castillo
    Igor Olshansky
    Ryon Bingham
    Derreck Robinson
    Jacques Cesaire
    Brandon McKinney / Alvin Smith

    Bingham looked real good before he tore his tit muscle and may be a critical key to the season......

    Leisure seems to have a man boob obsession (see his McNeill comments from the combine). Perhaps he could give Bingham a tit check and report back to the rest of us. That is, when he comes out of the coma.
