Without question, Charles is ready to take the next step as a major leader on this team. He wants nothing more than to punish defenses and win a lot of football games. Houston is wondering who will replace the vocality in the locker-room of Eric Winston. Brandon Albert seems to be taking on a new veteran leadership role, and Lilja's obvious voice to his teammates is already being heard by the new guys. Cassel. He is the kind of player that sets himself up to get better every season, and that is one thing everyone should appreciate and count on more around here. Not only will he be a leader on the team, but he will be a better one. That's the kind of player/teammate he is. Add up the guys around him playing their leadership roles and we are looking at an unrecognizable offense. Well, at least that's what I keep telling myself ... ... I wish I could tell myself that Bowe would come out and be vocal to his teammates. A more vocal Bowe would better the show if you asked me. Be sure and catch what Faulk has to say in the link. He's the man.
