If by limited you mean rookies playing in a new system with no offseason, then yeah their limited. I'm willing to give them at another year before I call them limited.

cam had an even bigger hill to climb than they did

fortunately for him he had the skills to overcome all of those things and perform admirably

I bet Cam would have sucked on the DL too.

He always said the only time people talk about rounds is in draft preparation and on draft day. Never during any player's career, Walsh would vent, does anyone say a player was picked in the right round.

kind of funny, because during Joe Montana's career, people were all like "HOW WAS HE A 3rd ROUNDER??".

too bad their skills are limited

I somewhat agree. Right now, they are nothing but Rotational guys. Fua maybe becoming the NT that we need to anchor a hybrid 34 defense that Rivera wants. McClain would be a 2 down tackle. I don't see them being dominant but I do see them being in the regular rotation of guys.

and if that's the way they panned out it wouldn't be a bad thing either

Don't think this applies to Coples, Davis wasn't fired for being a bad coach.

But it definitely applies to Everett Withers (so many people seem to think Butch coached Coples last season). As a Carolina fan who attended every game last year, both home and away, I cannot say Withers was a good coach. Ultimately, Withers was "fired" for bad coaching. That was a very talented roster of Butch's recruits and 7-5 was very underwhelming.

We all know Coples had an oustanding junior year. He produced quite well for Butch and I know he was one of Butch's favorites.

Coples is the first player coming out since Peppers to remind me of Peppers. Mario Williams is a great player and a physical specimen, but to me, he did not disrupt the overall game and scheme like Peppers and Coples. Over the last two years, teams playing UNC had to know where Coples was at all times.

-FL

He reminds me of Peppers alright, he knows how to shut it down.
