Some people feel we will have a drop off in talent this year and our d will regress a little. I really think people feel this way because unlike last season we had established leaders on the team such as minter and reid where as this season no one knows who that voice will be. As far as talent I don't know there will be a big dip. m&M had a sub par season and I really think our current d line is at least that good our lbs are clearly better but replacing minter and reid are the 2 big things. My question is do you see a leader for the defense who talks and everyone listens and ifaso who is it
In one of the practice reports they said Big Poppa was extremely vocal. Good question. +1
The problem with Big Poppa is he's either hurt or will get flagged for personal fouls. He's a great kid but don't see how he can be a leader on defense if he's not on the field all the time. I think Freak or one of the LBs will need to step up in that role.
Craig Loston has grabbed my eye there along with Lamin Barrow on defense and Freak Johnson and Jermauria Rasco.
On offense, these guys are more focused on the speed of the drills and getting that down but I do see a little spring in the step and pointiung guys around from Zach Mettenberger, Jarvis Landry, Odell Beckham and Kadron Boone.
Thanks its always been my observation that strong leaders make a stong team and this will be crucial to success for this football team. They need someone to rally around when the chips are down and flip momentum. Glad to see mett is one of those guys cause you need that at qb more then any other position
No doubt that leadership was missing last season and early on I like what I'm hearing in terms of the right guys stepping up.
