We all saw the stop Osi Umenyiora made in the first quarter against Rashard Mendenhall, the one where he blew into the backfield and dropped the running back for a seven-yard loss.
It was his only tackle. But then, he didn't play much past the first quarter. Afterward, Mathias Kiwanuka said noted Umenyiora's renewed attitude in defensing the run, saying he's made great strides.
"I can't say enough about how his mindset has changed against the run," said Kiwanuka, who is in direct competition for Umenyiora's starting job.
My question to you is, do you think Umenyiora has made the necessary improvements to be an adequate run-stopper and a three-down lineman? Or was that play simply an isolated moment? Who will win that job?
