We need players to fill in the cb spot NOW. someone should tell lebeau that it's not the end of the world to play rookies on defense. look how well that worked out for our offense? sanders/brown became critical to our offense's success in the mid-late season. the same can happen for our defense, but of course you never know until you give these kids a CHANCE to play. you don't need to rot on the bench for 3 years to be ready FFS, you only improve when you get actual game experience.

i want to see young talent push mcfadden/gay for starting roles in training camp.
Its more about learning the defense. A 4-3 man-zone defense, what most football coaches will call "base," is very easy to learn. There are few tricks. Labeaus defense is so good because you never know whats coming. Because it is so unpredictable it leads teams to expect the unpredictable when Dick actually throws up a play that would normally be expected, leading to a good defensive play, all because it was not expected. Learning Dick's scheme is even harder than trying to understand that last sentence and that is why rookies rarely play.
I love my girlfriend...Thanks for the banner. Shannon!
