Trevor Laws is my biggest surprise so far. This is a guy who lost time to a journeyman free agent Antonio Dixon. I hope he can actually play when the regular season starts too. (We should have two separate preseason awards one for offense (na brown award) and the justin babin award for defense.)
Sims - I think a lot of us thought he was going to come in here and be a huge upgrade over anyone else we had. Unfortunately I think the Lions fans were right. He plays very undisciplined football, over pursing and out of place. That can be deadly when we play teams with a lot of offensive fire power. Anyone want to wager that Jordan will have his starting job back?
Graham - OK did anyone really think he was going to be this far along in his development?
Hobbs/Patterson - I'm getting a little less nervous about our CB situation. We're pretty thin but it looks like we got some guys who can at least play the position at an adequate level.
Rocca - He's playing awesome and consistent! Nice!
Fokou - Someone must've spiked my Fokou kool aid. I thought he was going to make at least some progression from last year
Cooper - Maybe he will edge out Baskett as the 4th guy, but I still don't think he's going to beat out Avant or Maclin like some are believing.
MJG - I thought he was better than that. He's not
Stacy Andrews - I thought he was going to step it up, doesn't look like he's going to.
Who is officially off the Charles Scott and Cornelius Ingram band wagon? So much hype I don't think the two even have a shot to make the team. Scott is listed as FB, we know who the FB here is. How about Chad Hall and Michael Vick being anything more than a backup? Hall won't make this team, I'll be surprised if someone signs him off the PS,
and Michael Vick was NEVER a good passer, I've been saying it for the past 7 years now. I think he makes a great wild cat QB and here's why.. It looks to me like all Vick has to do is make two decisions 1) Look for the safeties or line backers to bite and throw down field 2) if they didn't bite, take off. That's pretty easy, minimal check downs, and should make little room to have a turn over.
Oh and how poorly our S/T coverage has been. Definitely a big surprise.
