Curtis Brown DB, I think.

I was thinking it was a DB... Was he a 3rd rounder?

Yeah.

I hope after this year (unlikely) he can take over for McFadden.

We need a youngster to step up.

Someone HAS to take over for McFadden. McFadden and the Oline are the weak spots.

Awesome. Now we can get down to the business of #7. I 'd love to see Ben get 5 rings before he retires. Then maybe he'll get some respect.

He wouldn't get respect if he won ten

Unfortuantely, very true.

That is true. Ben still has quite a few years, in football perspective, to win some more rings. I am pretty optimistic about this year. If we get Plax and get the O line straightened out correctly, this could be another SB team.
