Yeah, It's not often you hear LeBeau say something like this. We are hearing many of the coaches talk about rookies in glowing terms. I've never heard this much positive chatter from coaches about young talent for as long as I've been following this team. It's almost too good to be true.
I'll take an approach of cautious optimism.
