Lake? Cap, I'm sorry but you must be nuts. This guy is even less of a contributor than Shawn Swayda was in his days in Atlanta.
Lake had a strong start to the season, but he basically disappeared after Week 4 or so. He's nothing more than a stopgap # FOUR defensive tackle!!!
If Lake makes this team in 2005, it will either be 1) a testament to how wrong I am and Lake shows dramatic improvement or 2) it will show that McKay & Co. did a poor job at bolstering the depth at DT.
He should not make the roster. If the Falcons play their cards right, Lake should enter training camp as the #5 DT at best. He should get absolutely no promotion.
I don't really have a major problem with Lavalais entering camp as the starter, but if his top competition is Antwan Lake, then we are in for a long season...
