Could We See Harrell This Week?

In light of the many injuries along the defensive line, there's a very strong possibility we could see Justin Harrell make his professional debut against the Chargers this weekend.

Remember him?

Remember the hand-wringing? The consternation? The cries of "how-the-hell-could-Thompson-not-pick-an-offensive-player-to-help-Favre?"

Now think of this. Harrell might not make the field this week, or indeed all season (though that's unlikely). But when he does, he'll be healthy and have fresher legs than anyone on the field. He could make the defense even better, just playing on sparse early downs, when he's not expected to rush the passer.

Thompson's choice may not have been popular, but the stockpiling of talent at the defensive line position may turn out to be smarter than anyone gave Thompson credit for.
