    Killer D with good depth, excellant foundation for today and the future, first time I want Sept to hurry and be here already. Need to replace my Randle jersey but not sure which monster to get......might have to get 5, Mosley looks like a good replacement for Hovan.

    Too early to tell, but it sure is great even thinking about it. If they all stay healthy and can play together for at least 2-3 years, who knows?

    I'd like nothing better than to bring back the great memories of Marshall, Page, Larsen and Eller. (The scary part is today's secondary as a whole is better than that of the 70's.)

    Gotta say the PPE were not all about pure talent. It was more of an attitude. It will be hard to mimick that style of play today. If they could it would be very excellent.

    P. Williams is getting a lot of credit. I do not see him in there a whole lot. He will obviously be in on run downs and short yardage/goaline. I think Spencer Johnson will still be a big part of the D-line. We have a rook D-tackle now, but with how fundementally sound Johnson is he will be hard to get out of the backup position.

    As far as Purple People Eaters go I have to say no. Cottrell wanted to get us back to that stage last year I heard him say he was focused on the mentality of the team. Then he plays a D that is backwards a defense that is on it's heels.

    It's an aura it's a "I'm gonna knock you on your ass," kind of thing. You could have 4 no namers playing PPE defense but if they do they wouldn't be no namers for long. One very big possitive is the confidence level seems as high as it has ever been and that could grow into something great if nurtured by the coaching staff.
