Hi Everyone. I have been extremely busy after the season had ended but have kept all of you in my heart and mind. I have been constantly thinking about this topic and have finally found the time to post it. Given that, here I go. I have made this argument numerous times in a post but never as a thread. So I will put it out there on a bigger platform for us to discuss. I have heard all of the counter arguments against attaining a “Traditional Nose Tackle (NT)” in the prototype of Casey Hampton. I still maintain my position. The primary argument against it from some here is the limited amount of snaps that such a player would engage in. I have taken that into account in my position but I still stand my grounds. The foundation of my proposal is based on the premise of a “Mix and Match” concept. Some argue this type of player (Casey 2.0) is obsolete and antiquated. However, some teams are still employing the utilization of a “True” NT in their defenses. Please read my post below as I know I can be long-winded and wanted to break this up a bit.
