If Anoma is not on the team, could Alfano do the job? I know that he would be out of position, but wondering as he looks to be a great one in the making.
With Alfano being a true DE and weighing over 280 lbs I don't see him doing it. I think we see Chris Allen step into the role and he is a good one but is coming off a season ending injury from last year.

Deleted by poster.

Edit: If the issue is really mental illness, as has been reported in subsequent posts, my original post was obviously and badly wrong. Deleting until this is clarified.

Allen would have been in line to be with the 1s anyway. Anoma hadn't secured a role with the starters (edit: first organizational groupings) yet. So we're good so long as we don't have any more injuries.

Jennings on one side. Lewis on the other. Any combination of Davis, Ray, Dale, Mathis, Young, Barmore, Eboigbe inside. With Allen providing extra depth behind either of those guys, and not forgetting that Moses also plays with his hand in the dirt. This will mean that McMillon, Moody, Lee, and/or Harris have been able to come along and run point in the middle.

All that to say, we will be fine....better than fine.

One of these days I'm going to figure out the twitter handle of some of you. Often I see very similar comments posted on here and twitter and always wonder if its the same person or not.

Mental health is serious issue in our world that doesn’t get the same ‘glitz and glam’ discussions as a lot of other health issues we address in our society. The more I think and read about Anoma, the more I think mental health is a problem here

I was wondering how long this would take to come out.
What that somebody is not enrolled in class? Not that hard to find out and certainly not news that has to "come out". My point let's wait and see what comes out instead of assuming .We all know how assuming something works out in the end.

It has been reported the young man has dealt with depression and ADD/ADHD in the past which many times go “hand in hand” with each other. I hope the kid gets a lot of help and finds personal peace, regardless of whether he straps on the pads here or elsewhere.

I have nothing but sympathy and well wishes for the young man. Nothing is scarier as a parent than watching a child suffer from mental illness.

Those are tough issues to deal with...………...I wish him the best and hope he gets it all under control

Amen. I’ve seen it first hand.

My profession is in behavioral health. Most would be absolutely stunned as to how prevalent mental health issues/illnesses are in the general population.

No. The issue that caused him to not be enrolled.

Re: Really Hated to See the News About Anoma

It is being reported Anoma is back in DC and his likely transfer spot is Maryland since he is very close to Locksley.
