### By the way, UM slid to 12th in Rivals.com’s final recruiting rankings, compared with 10th for ESPN. Both are very good but would have been better if Travonte Valentine, Nigel Bethel, Brandon Powell and Reilly Gibbons hadn’t bolted.

What hurt UM in the rivals.com rankings was lack of four-star recruits (eight), compared with teams ahead of them, including FSU (13) and Florida (12). In Rivals.com’s top 18, only Clemson had fewer four-star recruits. UM had one five star recruit (Chad Thomas).

.

The pure definition of Quantity over Quality...

It was a "decent" oversigned class, but when combined with all the unranked, 2 and barely 3 star filled 2011, 2012 and 2013 classes, Ur roster is more than 1 third loaded with project type kids that Top-Programs don't even offer. And when more classes in the future have 12-14 of those types in them, over a 4-5 YEAR RECRUITING CYCLE, that's exactly why Ur mediocrity will continue as an 8-4/7-5 program that lingers outside the Top-25 year in and year out which Shalalala loves and Golden knows he can get away with without any pressure or accountability to keep he and his BFF in business. Then come mid Seasons, just like the last 10, when injuries, attrition and adversity arrives, you'll know the reason why U continue to have to ask, "Why don't we have any DEPTH", is because U had to play all these average players way to early before being even close to developed is the exact reason why. But, U in Ur in denial and delusional ways still won't get it. Because U Cane fans only see the uniforms, jerseys and helmets with that silly []_[] on it, instead of the level of talent and personal inside of them... Case in point, the idiots on Canespace have an ongoing debate as to whether the U should go back to the Black shoes n Socks of the 2000 season as it will bring back the old Cane swag while others argue that the white socks n shoes of the 80's is better and more traditional.

But, that is Cane fan mentality at work at it's best ...

And why, u, are still u.


On quarterback additions Brad Kaaya and Malik Rosier: "Neither one of them ever said, ‘Well, the other guy is coming.’ And you get that a lot," Coley said. ‘Tell me about the other guy that’s coming.’ That says a lot about the guy that’s coming. Those guys never said that.”

we never completely sold out the OB unless ND, FSU, UF, OK, NEB or some other powerhouse came to town.

THE most sensible and intelligent thing a Cane Fan has said in years.

TRUE POWERHOUSE TOP-PROGRAMS ALL, THEN AND NOW that FILL their Home Games because their fans want to see THEIR teams play. NOT the OPPONENTS... And that's the the ONLY way, other than B.K. Lounge Coupons, U fill Ur Home games instead of the usual 35k crowds that TOP kids now adays don't want to play in front of or be a part of.

It's a True Cane Thang that NO TOP-PROGRAMS Aspire to copy.

Some here blabber about how Randy Shannon had a 20-25 ranked Defense.

No, you are using that very selective posting. The point, also, is Al Golden's superior talent.

What Al Golden has done is do extremely worse, on defense, with greater talent. As well as lose to more lesser talented teams, at the same damn time.

Addressed DT with two JUCO's and COURTELL JENKINS?????? You're F'ing kidding me right? Golden is a joke.

Posted by: Marble Mouf | February 08, 2014 at 11:51 AM



Uh, marble mouf? We got one of the best dt's from juco and sec teams were trying to get him also. An sec team would have gotten him if they didnt have the same transfer rule tha ACC has. He could have waited to go to the sec but chose to wait for the ACC . Plus we picked up Moten, another player the sec was after jard and heavy. Yes we adressed the dt position. We definitely need more ,but thats a good start.

OK Cane fan, let's go over this sllloooowwwwly so even U can understand. U addressed the DT position up to EXACTLY where it has been the last 4 Seasons. STILL BELOW AVERAGE. First off, the last 3 recruiting classes, 2011-2012-2013 Golden was only able to sign 5 total DT's. FIVE ! And NONE were or have been difference makers. This last 2013 Season, there were ONLY 6 TRUE DT's on the roster (not True Big 270-280lb Strong-side DE's like Chic has been ballooned up to because of desperate need at that u could move n pinch down in short yardage situations only). Pretty much 5 of those 6 DT's rotated in for the bulk of the minutes during the Season right? RIGHT now, check the roster as 3 of those 5 that did play have GRADUATED and are GONE (Shannon's final guys). So the DT #'s were down to just 3-THREE LIVE DT bodies, and one never or never will play, on the roster prior to last weeks Signing day... U following ?

U speak of the JUCO DT Michael Wyche that U believe that SEC teams offered. Well pal, they didn't offer. The kid went out to Cali for JUCO and was offered by USC (who recended their offer) for depth only. RIVALS.com has his only other offers as Wash. St. and Arky St. which are his only true offer besides U. SCOUT.com has the exact same offers plus Troy and Auburn as a preferred walkon that would qualify for Financial aid (who has need for someone to play 3rd. team DT in their unique 8-EIGHTMAN DT rotation is all). That's 1-ONE SEC offer and that's it due to the loss of DT's and scheme only for a fat body to play 8-10 plays a game. NOT Start for U and be an integral cog to ur A n B gap D-No scheme. ESPN.com has Arky St., Wash St., Troy, USC n U as his ONLY offers. Now someone, who's been smoking some seriously good chiba at 247Sports.com, has him FULL offered by Alabama n Florida and no other SEC School ! NOT A CHANCE ! Saban has no need and wouldn't even offer as a walkon. Florida NEVER offered, even though they still have 3-4 schollies to give, but did say, once he finished his next semester of JUCO they might talk about a preferred walkon. Why do U think this kid decommitted then when he found out there was no other options and came crawling back to U because Ur so desperate for even AVERAGE DT help ? So that's that story. U got an unranked 3-star DT that had nowhere else to go... Let's go on to the other 3 DT's (actually 2 true DT's) that U are so fired up about shall we ?

JUCO DT Calvin Heurtelou is next... Unranked 3-star offered by Auburn, due to graduation and early future NFL enrollees for their 8 man rotational scheme. NOT as a starter. Mizzou, due to 4 DT graduates, Tenn., who like U offered over 80 kids due to the need for everything are the ONLY SEC schools offering. But Texas St. really went after him hard... Again, all just for non-stating depth. Not come and play right away like he'll need to do for U.

Another 6-0 315 Weeble that Wobbles New Jersey DT Freshman Courtel Jenkins 3-star (and in Cane fan language, a New Jersey 4-star is like a Florida unranked or 2-star.) JUST ONE other offer from PITT period. Not even the sorry D-1 programs offered, except U of course. He'll have to come in and be thrown right into the 5 man rotation and play crunch minutes after fatigue and injuries mount and will get steamrolled. Instead of Red-Shirting, playing limited as a Red-Shirt Fresh and MAYBE develop as a Red-Shirt Soph BACKUP... Kid will be beat up and worthless by 2014 mid-season.

Finally St. Thomas Aquinas TRUE STRONG-SIDE DEFENSIVE END Anthony Moten. Every Top-Program that stockpiles D-Linemen that offered this good long-lean player saw him as a Strong-Side DE that would REDSHIRT, lose 15 of his 280 babyfat pounds, gain 15lbs back in pure muscle strength while not losing but gaining QUICKNESS, then playing sparingly until his Red-Shirt Soph year and then be a major force with GREAT DT and OLB help around him. U know, exactly what Top-SEC Speed SEC Defenses do... But U and Golden will be spouting off how he's GAINED WEIGHT (while losing quickness) and be forced to play the vast majority of his snaps out of position in between the Offensive Tackles inside shoulders right away as a TRUE underdeveloped FRESHMAN !!! He's going to get absolutely broken in half before he's ever ready to compete and ever help as a fully developed Upper-Classmen in Golden's BFF's Penn. St. scheme.

.

Soooooo, let's review, shall we ?

Yes we addressed the dt position. We definitely need more ,but that's a good start.

Posted by: GeorThe ACC owns the gators;) | February 08, 2014 at 12:09 PM

Ur happy U got 4 ? DT's in the 2014 Class. With them, U now still only have at max 7-8 DT's on the ENTIRE roster and 3-4 of them aren't ready or much less D-1 talented. U need more ? U've always and will continue to always need more. Everyone does. U NEED MORE THAT CAN PLAY !!! And haven't been there, aren't there and aren't coming. Good start ? Son, Ur not even in the race much less the starting blocks... So good luck to U with that...

.

.

.

psssssttttttt ... if u could have pulled LOCALS Kahari Clark, Travonte Valentine and just one more of the many top 4 n 5 Star NONE JUCO DT's that were available Nationwide in this class, U'd just might be well on ur way to saying "WE'RE BACK" !!! in 2 or 3 years once they DEVELOPE and are then backed up with even more DT talent the next 2-3 Recruiting Classes n Cycles. Not 1 or 2 DT hits and JUCO scrub band aides every 4-5 years that Golden is pacifying U "ALL IS WELL" Homers ....

Ohhhh, btw, who are those LB's that U signed that will be backing up the D-Line moving forward ? Thought so.

Ur D is Ur D ... Under Golden n Co. always will be...

What hurt UM in the rivals.com rankings was lack of four-star recruits (eight), compared with teams ahead of them, including FSU (13) and Florida (12).

.

17-SEVENTEEN 3-Stars, 2-TWO THIRDS of ur ENTIRE 2014 Averagae Class... Combined with all those 2011-2012-2013 3 stars, thats a roster stocked with OVER 50 of ur 85 Schollie players that are Average. And u axe where's the DEPTH ?

Not to mention that 12 of those 17 3 stars were non-elite High School Juniors unranked and 2-star kids going into their Senior seasons. Golden, the schollie coupon Santa Claus, started handing out "go to college free certificates" to numerous average out of state and some local nobodys with maybe W. Kentucky, W. Michigan, Ball State, Ackron, Bowling Green, Buffalo, multiple FCS and D-2 offers just to cook the recruiting numbers books and a FALSE Top-3 ranking in SEPTEMBER with 20+ commits before the 2013 season even kicked off. While TOP-PROGRAMS had 8-10 TOP commits and would later CLOSE STRONG by Flipping and getting the remaining TOP kids to commit. And U, begging for ANY good news dopes, bought it right up until Golden tried to bolt town 10 DAYS BEFORE SIGNING DAY, but his former College said, "No Al, we don't want you. U haven't the pedigree."

This Golden and his buddy have shaken u fans down with his 300 page Penn. State/ Temple Binder and is running it right according to planned... Say the right things, fluff up the u tradition (which he's only read and saw on tape, never lived it) talk about the process, OUR KIDS ARE GETTING BIGGER, we're young again, but getting better... blah blah blah p[]_[]ke.

"What hurt UM in the rivals.com rankings was" ...

Coaching PHILOSOPHY and then it's EXECUTION carried out to the T ...

oh yeah ...

"And were GRADUATING nearly 100% of our Kids with a 0% Arrest Record !!!

That ain't no []_[] I ever knew ... how 'bout []_[] ?

Thank you Donna Shalalalaa !

With 3.5 seconds remaining and trailing by two, UM senior forward Raphael Akpejiori made the first free throw, but the second rimmed out as the Hurricanes lost to the Wolfpack 56-55 at BankUnited Center.

.

try being up 10 with 10 to go ... then up 5 with 5 to go ...

then make 5 free throws going up up 11 @ 0:00

### Encouraging news for those who want to see UM blitz more and play more man coverage: Al Golden said last week UM will be more aggressive in its defensive approach this season.

Here's how Golden answered when WQAM’s Channing Crowder asked Golden what he says to people who criticize him about his loyalty to defensive coordinator Mark D'Onofrio.

"It doesn't have anything to do with my loyalty to D'Onofrio," he said. "It has to do with: We were better this year than last year. And two seasons ago we played 14 or 15 freshmen on defense. Now we're
better. We've been trying to add to that and improve on defense during a very difficult time.

"Here's what our defense was good enough to do last year: They were good enough to win nine. Now we've got to get better and win more games. The offense wasn't good on third down [or] time of possession. Both of those directly impact defense.

"Anybody who wants to blitz and play cover 1, who wouldn't want to do that? We feel we have a group here that is going to allow us to be more aggressive. The deeper you are, the more athletic you are, the more things you can do.

"You can call all the pressers you want. If your fourth and fifth [rushers] aren't getting there, someone is hung out to dry down the field. We've made a lot of progress there, adding 14 guys [on defense] that can help us. Most of our guys that had interceptions, sacks, caused fumbles are returning. Why would we abort right now?"

"The offense wasn't good on third down [or] time of possession. Both of those directly impact defense."

"...blitz and play cover 1, who wouldn't want to do that? We feel we have a group here that is going to allow us to be more aggressive. The deeper you are, the more athletic you are, the more things you can do."

"You can call all the pressers you want. If your fourth and fifth [rushers] aren't getting there, someone is hung out to dry down the field."

No running game after Duke went down, depth, talent level. Been saying that all season. We were 7-0 and toe to toe vs FSU before Duke went down. Now all nitwits rise up en mass. Patience.

Hey MR u r an idiot , I mean u r u or whatever your stupid name is ,it might mean something if the person spouting all your crap was important but guess what your not . You don't have a clue what the hell your talking about and you just rambling like the moron that you are . If you don't like our team who cares ? Bottom line is we beat you , Georgia southern beat you , and 6 other teams beat you . All those recruiting classes UF gets and that is what they have to show for it ? I would be on here talking about our coaches you might want to look out your trailer window at your own . Go Canes

take a good look into Al's eyes the next 6-8 months Miamians as he half smiles at YOU TRUE CANE FANS .


wink wink, no go Golden.

2017 !!!

Like we really want to keep Golden here.

I hate the way Golden hangs players out to dry. Look at his quotes, he's basically blaming the pass rushers for not getting there and the secondary for not being able to cover in man.

all u haters on Golden think that getting "someone else" is the answer. You all too stupid to realize how good UM has it. Donofrio will eventually leave if the D keeps su-king. Golden aintgoing anywhere-

Who would UM get otherwise?
Cristobal no. He stayingin the NFL
Schiano? Nota chance
Butch- LOL. he is dirty and NCAA kryptonite


come on give me a viable alternative. Speak up. Dont be shy.
What good coach out there would be willing to come here.
idiots

Thanks coach Golden

I think Kaaya will reshsirt too, as we have Olsen 2 years in system now, Williams 3 years at Miami and Crow 2 years at Miami. Plus Rosier and Kaaya, 5 nice qb's.

Lets not forget Olsen was ranked basically like Kaaya was coming out of high school, so we dont know if he has a great offseason, puts it all together, and comes ready to play.

Bernie Kosar won a title as Redshirt Freshman, Dorsey played as a true freshman but we had no depth in 99, so anyone can win the job but Kaaya doesnt come till august and if williams win the job, then that would give younger guys development time.

We have a ton of weapons. SM17 had a bad year, believe it or not all those 3 and outs with our ofensive talent kills the Defense. IF Williams can be a game manager for 1 year, get the ball to duke, yearby, coley , dorsett, Clive At TE, he has some of the best weapons in the country.

We have another 5 star stud at RB(On scout,com any way). so talent is there. If Olsen and WIlliams are even, I say go with Olsen, see what he has, and open the competition in spring of 15 to all 3 young qb's....

Should be interesting to watch;

Ok we have a good recruiting class.... on paper. Full of three and four star players, and one or two five star player. Now what.

Randy Shannon had the Number 1 class in college football in 2008, mostly with the Northwestern kids. So what.

It doesn't mean anything if the kids AREN'T COACHED UP. This current coaching staff, similar to Randy's staff, CERTAINLY HAS NOT DEMONSTRATED THAT THEY CAN COACH UP PLAYERS OF ANY RANKING.

Look at what happened with Morris at QB. He couldn't even read a defense for goodness sake.

Coming out of high school, Chickillo was practically on a similar plain as Clowney, who is now ready to be the #1 pick in the NFL. Chick seems to have the work ethic, but the coaching staff has not coached him up properly, in my opinion.

Lets not continue to bang the drum about scheme. How about the defense not knowing how to make an open field tackle or a tackle in the flat. That falls on fundamentals not being taught!

Butch and Jimmy never recruited hyped players. They recruited players no one saw talent in. They looked for speed first. Made a fast tight end a d lineman. Made a fast running back a corner. A fast corner a safety. A fast safety a linebacker. Then they wanted the kid to have a chip on his shoulder who felt he had something to prove, this way high school false hyped ego would never get in the way. Then Butch and Jimmy did their job and TAUGHT THE KIDS FUNDAMENTALS AND TECHNIQUE TO PUT THEM INTO A POSITION TO WIN!

Of course Golden is a good recruiter. He is a marketer. The key is, lets teach these kids to succeed and UM will never have a problem winning because most of the talent we will ever need is from the I-4 corridor south to Homestead. Point being, a UM coach getting good players to come to Miami IS NOTHING SPECIAL. The talent will arrive no matter who the coach is. Coaching them up is what is important. That is why we cannot waste our time with non-producing coaches any longer.

Golden and D'onofrio are on the clock. Progress has to be made this year, such as a New Years Day Bowl game. Otherwise its time to move on. Can't give every coach that comes in here five years to NOT PRODUCE championships or at least not being in the mix. Golden is on the Clock.

If the administration doesn't want Butch back, they need to bring in a former NFL head coach/coordinator and we'll be competing quickly.

ts funny how that's all 20th century has to go on....hahahahahah....what a tard....we have dominated his Turds for 30 years in wins AND in total SHIPS....but....I guess that's what "gets him off"....

Ha Ha!!! Good stuff! She's goin back 22 years but all you have to do is go back to September...

21-16....RRRRIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEET???

Geez...she has more posts up there than all Cane fans combined...
The obsession continues!!
How can one flap so much after going 4-8???

The blitz is important but only if it is in a wide open lane and the blitzer is a good tackler.
But that alone is nothing.

The Canes still need four down big, strong, agile linemen to oppose 6 offensive linemen and a blocking back. The defensive line is the most important part of football. Seattle beat Denver with just its defensive scoring. Seattle did not even need its offense. So, goldie should shut the hell up about the Cane offense and tell his moron OC to stop throwing hail mary interceptions or incompletions and go no where flat passes.

3 down def. linemen can NOT, NOT, NOT stop a run up the middle NOR an end run.

LBs five yards off the line of scrimmage give up 5 to 7 yards on every running play.

zone no pass coverage PREVENT THE WIN schemes just look good on paper. They do not work on the field because there is too much room in the gaps for the Cane DBs to cover receivers. Got to play man to man.

goldie and his staff and anyone who supports his schemes above are morons.

Holmie,

your argument for keeping golden is that we can't get anyone else?

kid is nice.

I loved his we're getting better crap...After the disaster of years 1 and 2, it's really not saying much.

I am not saying I like it but you can win with the 3/4 defense if you have the right players . New England and Pittsburgh won superbowls using it , but the nose tackles were Vince Wilfork and Casey Hampton both of whom are very large and disruptive players . Like I said I don't agree with us using it but it can work. I think their are some games when I wish we would have played a 5/2 defense , when we played Ohio State in Columbus and Pryor was running all over us . We had 5 good down linemen but we did not have 3 good linebackers so why not put the best players on the field with 5 d-lineman you can keep the offensive lineman from getting to the next level and the linebackers can control the QB runs , and Pryor was not an accurate thrower so I think that would have worked for us , I guess what I am saying is you need to make game by game adjustments and we don't do that . Just my opinion . Go Canes

Dom,

I think the only thing that held Williams back was arm strength. He said he throws the ball 60+ yards now. Kaaya and Olsen Battle will be interesting, indeed.

Saddest part? They should not even be here, based on their own promises. After they lost the Canes-gatr game:
we get some blather like "I apologize, I didn't mean some of the sick jokes I said, and you will hear no more from me". Yet, still here with the same sick jokes.

Back when the Canes were 5-7, "I will leave when the Canes have a better record than the gatrs". Yet, still here with the same sick jokes.

Waay back when they claimed they had a reason to be here "If canresule leaves gatr clause alone, I will stop". Yet, still here with the same sick jokes.

In other words, no matter the ID, no matter the promises, and no matter the "reasons" given, this murder joking coward will be here until the newspaper figures out a way to turn off his hatespeech.

Since that is the case, under no circumstances should you expect reasonable discourse from the coward, and just know that words you post here will be twisted and misquoted as he has done to other Canes fans in the past. Ignoring him has been tried, he just talks to himself. So instead, just make sure that there are more Canes fans comment on here, so that his is not the ONLY voice on here.

Go Canes!

Today's go eff yourself is brought to you by Jim Gallo, makers of asinine lists everywhere. Super Bowl qb russell Wilson, 2-3 stars by recruiting sites. Acc rushing champion and heisman finalist Andre Williams, 2-3*. Other 3*: Darrelle revis, santonio Holmes, Sam Bradford, Matt Ryan. 5 stars? Ask megatron and King Kong suh if they were 5*. Give me the hungry 3 over the pampered 4/5 every time. I'm talking to you Marcus forston.

Millionth posting on same topic award to Cane 1872---congrats. But, reality shows that

a) Canes rarely are in a 3 man line
b) good 3 man line defenses are very good at stopping the run---you know, teams like the steelers.

Btw, your award is a time travel pass to the current century. People pass the ball now. Forward even.

Everyone here seems to be handing the starting qb job to Williams. He's got an accurate arm, but he is not very athletic, his arm isn't strong and he doesn't react quickly in the pocket. If he were going to be the guy next year, I think you would have seen more of him this year when Morris couldn't hardly move.

Since, you only get 1 year out of Williams and have to go up the learning curve again, I think Olsen or Kayaa will get the job.

Speaking of marble mouf, just saw a ranking of most disappointing recruiting classes. Arkansas was numero uno.

Five, MHP, TG, GKC - thank you for keeping it interesting and true.

First check in for about a week. Just wow on Piggy.

It'll be interesting to see if Olsen pans out. He got no good press last season. I have nothing against RW, just that we don't need a stopgap at field general. He deserves his shot at the moment, but the future is the concern.

I do like that AG now has to address the reality of the scrutiny on our defense in the press.

This is going to be an interesting year.

I am not saying I like it but you can win with the 3/4 defense if you have the right players. New England and Pittsburgh won superbowls using it , but the nose tackles were Vince Wilfork and Casey Hampton both of whom are very large and disruptive players.

RIGHT! WILFORK IS LIKE HAVING TWO DTs OVER THE CENTER AND OFF. GUARDS.

Like I said I don't agree with us using it but it can work.
A 3 DOWN DEF. LINEMEN WILL NEVER WORK TO STOP A RUN UP THE MIDDLE, AN END RUN, NOR AN EFFECTIVE PASS RUSH.

I think their are some games when I wish we would have played a 5/2 defense,

RIGHT! THE 5-4-2 IS THE OLD OKLAHOMA DEFENSE EMPLOYED BY BUD WILKENSON ONE OF THE GREATEST COLLEGE COACHES EVER. MORONS GOLDIE AND D'O DO NOT EVEN USE IT NOR A 6 DEF. LINEMEN ON A GOAL LINE STAND AND THEN, THEY SCRATCH THEIR BUTTS AND THEIR HEADS WONDERING WHY THE OTHER TEAM SCORED. WTF??

when we played Ohio State in Columbus and Pryor was running all over us . We had 5 good down linemen but we did not have 3 good linebackers so why not put the best players on the field with 5 d-lineman you can keep the offensive lineman from getting to the next level and the linebackers can control the QB runs , and Pryor was not an accurate thrower so I think that would have worked for us , I guess what I am saying is you need to make game by game adjustments and we don't do that .

RIGHT AGAIN! BUT A 4 DEF. LINEMEN FRONT AND A TOUGH MIDDLE LB UP CLOSE RIGHT BEHIND THEM IS IN EFFECT A FIVE DEF. LINEMAN FRONT.

reality shows that
a) Canes rarely are in a 3 man line
b) good 3 man line defenses are very good at stopping the run---you know, teams like the steelers.

//////////////////////////
a) Cane coaches go to a 3 man def. line on third down in order to help the other teams convert to first and tens or whenever the other teams need and end run for seven yards.
b ) "good" 3 def. linemen can work with a big DT like wilfork or with big, agile, tough LBs right behind the def. line instead of moron goldie and d'o scheme of LBs five yards off the los, and only if the def. secondary is playing man to man and if the def. is blitzing every play, IE, agressive defense.

morons goldie and the OC are idiots on the Cane passing game. The best pass in the world is a 15-20 yard pass to a speedster who can 1) pick up a first down, and 2) break a tackle and go for a TD. A hail mary pass for no reason is a wasted down as is a flat pass for no gain. That puts the Cane offense in 2nd and ten. Not a good place to be.

Some of you blow hards can't keep Shannon's strotum out your mouths.

Give it a rest already

whats a strotum?

Go spit and you'll see.

saw nothing, just like the space between your ears

I'm concerned that if Kaaya is red shirted, that will give him more time to get home sick and start thinking about a transfer. We need to get, and keep him involved in this football program so the doubts don't start creeping in on him. As for the rest of our recruits, I see a couple of future stars on the roster (Hester (DB), Thomas DE), Kaaya (QB) and Moten (DT)). Most of all what i would really like to see is this 3-4 defensive scheme go away and have some defensive continuity. Anyone have some "Good" film on this kid Berrios? From the highlight films i've watched, i have nothing to be excited about with him. Take me back to the Santana Moss and Reggie Wayne days: "Who ya gonna cover?"
