So does Oher suck or have Addison and Alexander picked up their game and are playing very well early in camp. I am hoping for the latter and and not the former. I suppose the preseaason games will tell the tale.
Lets be honest here. Exactly what did you expect from Williams. Passing the buck and lying and simply two of the many things he does and has done for years. All cloaked in the veil of being misunderstood while he preaches doing everything you can to win at all costs including intentionally injuring players. His ends justify the means with few boundaries. Makes him a scary guy in a violent sport that needs regulation to counterbalance those guys who lack a moral compass and forget that intentionally ending the career of a football player crosses a line and sends you down a slippery slope.
My youngest son is 15 and plays sports at a high level and gets trophies only for winning now. As a child he got all the participatory trophies. A year or two ago he took all of those trophies and packed them away saying they didn't count and weren't worth keeping. He got themessage and is anything besides a wuss and wasn't hurt by the experience. I would think kids who they are referring to never play anything at a high level and likely needed trophies to build their self esteem as a child. Truth is if they continue in sports beyond 10, they figure it out and aren't hurt by awards won as a small child for participation.
If Norman is smart he will want to play here as much as we want him here. This is the kind of defense which will make him look good and plays to his strengths. How many corners have we had who looked better once they left us for elsewhere
It will take Shaq time to learn this defense. It is a high responsibilitY defense which works only when everyone is where they are supposed to be doing what they need to do. One breakdown and we give up a big gain. He may need some time before he makes any kind of impact
The only way it matters what the media thinks is if the opposing players discount us. And I promise you after sweeping Tampa and giving Atlanta and New Orleans butt kickings at the end of the year, they are surly not discounting us. They know we are still the team to beat in the division.
I don't see a lot of Stewart in him but he sure does look like DeAngelo. I don't see him being big between the tackles but he does have a nice burst around the edges. He will be a good complement to Stewart and Tolbert who will get playing time commensurate with his ability to pass protect which is critical in our offense with many intermediate and deep routes.
