    Check out our youth.

    It's scary when you think about it. Childress has been building our team through the draft, and has been doing it very well if you ask me.

    Our QB is only a 2nd year vet, our new star running back is a rookie, our #1 WR is a 3 year vet, our other 2 hopeful WRs are rookies and one 2 year vet. We have Ryan Cook who is a 2 year vet and already starting, Erasmus is a 3 year vet and Greenway is a 2 year guy along with Rufus who is a rookie and could be huge. Doss is a 4 year vet and Griffin is a 2 year vet along with the rookie McCauley. The rest of the guys are not even that old when it comes down to it.

    What I am getting at is that in a few years, we will have a young, but experienced team who has good chemistry and a lot of talent. We will be above average for a few years, but after these guys get playing time, we will be a very strong force for many years.

    Does anyone else see it this way? Barring injuries and whizinators of course.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, forgot about Ray Edwards and Greg Blue who are 2 year men. They both have pretty good potential too.

    Re: Check out our youth.

    I like youth and exuberance over age and lethargy.
    ;D

    Gimme a bunch of you guys that can play over some old has-beens who think they have already made their mark because they just signed a fat contract.

    Great post Baumy. (Oh by the way.

    Agreed.

    This is what Cleveland essentially did on smaller scale and they have been praised for it.
    Thomas and Quinn will grow on the exact same page together.


    All the kids my age pee their pants, it's the coolest.

    Yeah I know what you mean. I even used to question every move Childress made. Still do to some of them. I will admit though, the last couple of months he has really made me buy into his methods. He is shaping our team up to be the next New England. Bunch of no name guys playing together and unselfishly. I'm excited.
