Overall, this defense is playing like one of the best in the league. Maybe the little things are standing out now because they're doing most everything else right.

Im sure she will be devastated to find out

Yeah, his coverage has been outstanding. That's way more important in a CB than wimpy tackling.

What I learned is that I am freakin' estatic over this coming year's draft... hopefully we hit a few more home runs this year.

We need a gap plugging DT that is good against the run.

Our LBers are to easy to get to for opposing OL

Thus YPC is to high.
Sheldon Rankins = Sedrick Ellis 2.0

Same size, same jersey number, same high draft pick investment, same pedestrian results...

Ellis was hardly the player Rankins already is. The guy is just getting started & has been disruptive. Take a moment to read Underhill's analysis on Rankins. It's a fair, honest assessment on his production thus far.

Didn't we have Sproles when we had Graham? I mean Kamara is dynamic and I love the guy but to me the situation is similar. Yes, in the red zone Graham was a beast for us.

That's a disgrace! I certainly hope you didn't put out.

it's almost like when you think you are going to shut out a team and right at the end on the final play, you give up a touchdown. That is what will be in your head for a long time.
