So far so good I think...
Ashley Lelie -- a previous three-sport standout in football, track, and basketball has yet to put up stats, but if you watched him VS the Vikings, he shows he still has that break-away speed, not to mention he runs excellent routes. He could be a game changer for us if he remains healthy.
Mike Vrabel (Mr. Do-it-all)- Right now he only has 2 Tackles (Not much PT), but has had solid coverage and pressure so far this pre-season and he provides us with leadership in that LB position, him and Cassel were simply a steal for a 2nd rounder IMO. Wonder if they will put him in on offense?!
Matt Cassel - He is 11 for 19 right now (would be better if werent for drops) with no picks and 1 TD not to mention a couple rushes for a 6.5 average lol not bad for only 2 1/2 or 3 quarters of play.
Corey Mays (my favorite acquisition) -- Has racked up 9 tackles and 8 of those 9 were solo, including 4 QB pressures and 1 pass defensed, this guy i think was a diamond in the rough for our team in this scheme. His energy is off the charts, full speed ALL day.
Mike Brown - Although Pollard is my favorite player on this team, Mike Brown has shown he could be better in coverage for us as his replacement or back-up, regardless I like what he has shown so far.
Bobby Engram and Toomer have yet to really put up much, Toomer is the only one with a reception out of the two, but they are vets and they will get balls and contribute to this team I think when the situation is at its worst. They might have the better hands on our team, 3rd downs... we need these guys
My point is I think the personnel decisions made by Pioli and the team have been very beneficial to this rebuilding process and the start of a really good team. If we address the O-line in the Draft and season to follow 2009, I think we could return to elite status not only in the AFC West, but in the AFC overall. What do you guys think?
Pollard, The Bonecrusher
