Mr Hollis. With or without inhaler, you really notice when he is not there. I for one would never get on the wrong side of him.

Re: McKenzie setting up the tone.

Both are playing very well right now. We need that to spread among the rest of the defense. The defense did play better Sunday though.

Don't worry - you could drive for hours and never reach his other side. Guy looks like a mountain stuffed into a halter top.

Harper - please to see him playing again. Yes!
He had help in Green Bay with Al Harris on the other side. The first year here I was thinking he was going to be just like Eric Allen or Tbuck Jones just take the money but in the last 2 years he has really performmed well both on and off the field.

McKenzie used to excell at his technique when he played for Green Bay. Just before he became a Saint, the NFL changed some of their rules in order to protect receivers a bit more, making some of McKenzie's technique illegal. He's had to readjust the way he plays over the last few years. Early on, he struggled. He also showed a lack of enthusiasm by taking plays off when we had bad seasons.

However, when he feels inspired, he plays more ferociously than anyone else on the field. He's extremely aggressive and confident and it steps up his game. I also think he's managed to readjust his technique over the past few seasons and has once again obtained a level of excellence.

Re: McKenzie setting up the tone.

usama young needs to be our #2 and get J.D, out. I know he makes a lot of money but he is just too short and not that good.

Re: McKenzie setting up the tone.

call me crazy but i think MM plays well every year! he might not be the best corner in the league but ....thinking before i say this......yeah i believe he is the best in our division. hall is good too but has a attitude problem. MM's problem is that he has never had support in the secondary until now a little with harper. I believe Craft could give him some help but i am not one of those guys that likes to tell coaches who to play. they obviously know more than any of us.
