Default McFadden and a few others out for game vs Eagles

Seriously, I think we could count how many games on one hand that Mcfadden has played healthy in. Maybe 5 or so.

CB- Allen NEEDS WORK
McFadden NEEDS WORK
Butler- NEEDS WORK,
Taylor- we know what he can do

whos getting the start at cb? gay and lewis? o momma 80 yard td first play of the game for the eagles
Kemoeatu- we knew he'd be out but NEEDS WORK,
harvey- i was hoping he was gonna make the team, but doubtful at this rate

i always hated toast mcfadden and believe he was one big reason why our defense could never get off the field on 3rd down. 15 yard cushion, give up the first down but make the tackle. i don't think he'd be bad as an extra db, but he isn't fit to be a #2

big disappointment that butler is injured again. hopefully we can see something from curtis brown on the field though.

this is bullsht.......The best WR core we face in the Pre-Season and all our CBs except that human piece of toast Gay are out....

And the Coaching staff gets another excuse to put off/acknowledge our DB problems

I hope that the coaching staff will allow Keenan Lewis and Curtis Brown to be on a loose leash so that their actual skills can be examined instead of having them play "tackle the catch", which was clearly the gameplan in the first game.
