Those are some very key positives. The first team D needs to step it up a bit but I have no doubt LeBeau will have them ready for the Fins game. The OL has been average at best, but look for them to get it together and be one of the best in the NFL this season. You heard it here first.
The negatives after ONLY 2 pre-season games? We lost 2 close contests with our scrubs playing the majority of both of those games. Not an excuse, mind you - fact.
So Santonio is coming along just fine?
Thats news to me, it seemed that he has dropped below Willie Reid in most peoples expectations.
Dont get me wrong, I have no doubts about your 1st string team - especially the D.
There do appear to be a few question marks, but mostly ones that were left over from last years regular season - ie the inability to get off the field on 3rd down.
It was mostly just an observation based upon the new guys and the back-ups.
