Josh Robinson got pwned in both man and zone against the Chargers. He has a way to go, but some of that is to be expected.
Reggie Jones was robbed on the pass interference call. He had position and knocked the ball down. Did he impede the receiver? Was the hand fighting too much? I don't think so. It looked pretty clean to me. He did blow coverage on the late Chargers drive.
Honestly I see C Cook, Erin Henderson, A Winnfield, B Robison, J. Brinkley and KW all having a banner seasons. Jared and Chad will continue to be pro-bowlers. Our rush d will be in the top 6, while our pass D will be improve, putting us in the top half, or atleast the top 20. Rookie's will be a big part of our overall improvement, with Josh, and H. Smith stepping up.

Ummm.... I do think that Cook is a good corner, but it is WAY early to say anything about Cole. He may not even see the field this year.

b. We'd win a SB with the Noodle. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. No better than the Randall Cunningham era.
c. ZB scheme sucks...Still running it.
d. Spielman sucks. Looks like he's building a good team.
e. Wilfs are bad owners......Whoops......:)
Comeon my friend. All of us have off ideas/thoughts/comments. Even the great Caine. I still owe you beers though. That you can say and I can't. :)
Not at first. The first two games were hard to watch, from a defensive standpoint, but I think I was a bit to quick to judge.

If they keep putting up like they have the last two games, I think this D could be fun to watch.
On a side note, it sure is fun to come into a older thread and see what people think/thought at that time.
Funny how a few of us are willing to eat crow and admit we were off. Others, well, they either quit posting or they just ignore the posts and claim something crazy like they are taken out of context. :)
