So i know this is not going to be a popular post and please feel free to kill me in th ecomments section but here goes. Chad Henne has had 2 seasons that were not great to say the least. at the end of the season last year i totally lost confidence in him and cringed evry time he had to throw(especially at the end of games). i get it im there with you. HOWEVER, before that henne had a stronger o line and better rushing attack. when that was the case he played significantly better. I feel we have added depth to this o line and the rushing attack has a 1-2 punch that im extremely happy to see coming together. the mix of daniel thomas and reggie bush is something that im super excited about. With that said i really believe henne is gonna get his fair shake and put together a much better season. Especially if they uncuff him and he can get some kind of confidence behind him. these are all IFs but i think they are going to happen.
Daniel Thomas and reggie bush are going to be behind a great oline and i feel they are poised to have a killer season.
Our defense is a no brainer i think its just going to be dominant.
Ive been to a couple of practies including the now infamous "We want Orton" practice. and the real person i wanted to say that im really impressed with is
Edmond Clyde Gates- this kid can burn it up. hes lightning and i ddnt see him drop a ball the whole time. The guy really has that extra gear to stretch the field and he seems to play with (yeah im gonna say it) swagger that just exudes confidence.
Philip Livas is my long shot right now. he had a really rough practice that included dropping balls and being out of position on some kick returns. Idk if he is gonna make it (probably not) but he definitely has the wiggle to make him liek a woodhead/welker/sproles kind of guy. The only thing is he is tiny and i mean tiny and for some reason i think its just awesome to watchhim play because of that reason. He plays among giants with no fear i just hope he can get it together and make the 53 (but dont hold your breathe)
Pat Devlin- He is raw and i think hes also a little bit scared. Whcih is understandable. He has fumbled and gotten sacked and had some shaky moments but when he flashes its pretty brilliant. Ive seen him connect on every depth on the field. short medium and long. Goign down he field for a 50 yard connection on the first team d was pretty impressive.he may be a long shot to play but im likin what im seein so far.
Brackett- I need to see more of him but i liek the way hes built and he seems to really be able to split the seam.
Guys you shouldnt be worried abotu at all
Wake,Misis Odrick, Pouncey,Solai,Langford,vontae, Marshal (lookin fast), Pretty much the whole D and the perennial starters on offense are all lookin good.
For all the people casting gloom and doom suck for luck and booing and chanting for orton. Seriously dont come to the games your not doing anything for the team. this is the roster guys we probably arent getting any other splash signings. so get behind this team and lets see if the pieces can fall the right way and we can make a run at something amazing.
im out GO FINSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
