    This is just to replace Eric Kelly on the depth chart. But I think we took a step backward.

    Not a step backwards. Eric kelly is the guy you saw chasing recievers into the end zone during the 2002 and 2003 seasons. Nearly every time we got beat deep it was kelly. He was being demoted to #5 CB. Celestin played the other side of the field from our NFLE player on the berlin thunder and learned an important thing. How to win. he's young may never start, but kelly is a whiner and a quitter.

    I always go so pissed when i saw kelly in the line up. Everyone in my family hated his guts. He blew so many plays.
