Am I the only person who really liked what Colin Jones had to offer at the nickel?
I too loved Colin Jones in at nickel. Smartest thing I saw McDermott do last year. Because so often when you have your nickel package in, the offense goes to hurry-up, thinking you've gone small/CB for your nickel back & tries to take advantage of that with runs & options. With Colin in & not being able to sub, we effectively still have 3 LB'rs in to stop those plays and it works really well. He's also fast enough to stay with a slot receiver when he needs to, removing that WR option. I hope they don't mess with this package.
But I'm all for competition at all positions & this sounds like it would be a good signing.

Hopefully few of you have had to deal with your parent passing and won't soon. It sucks. My mom unexpectedly passed a few years ago & I can remember feeling very surprised when the sun rose the next morning. The grief can be intense.
No one from my -then- place of employment came to the funeral service and, man, it hurt deep. I had already worked there 13 years and I had seen management go to funerals for other employees' loved ones who died. I went when it was someone I felt I knew well. It was part of the culture there or so I thought. So when no one showed it stung. I then discovered that it only happened if you were part of the high-school-atmosphere-cool-crowd. My entire attitude about the company and its owner and management changed.
So I totally understand how DeAngelo feels. It's been less than a year. He's still hurting & I 100% get it.
btw he had nothing to do with how his interview was released (in pieces) or advertised. That was all on WBTV. He did the interview in one sit-down with Molly & that's how it should be taken.
