Potential attitude problem corroborated but the marginal talent stuff on the message boards could very well be sour grapes. Maybe a marginal starter but from what it sounds like, he could be quality depth.
With the exception of backup SS, this secondary will have some serious talent and depth this year.
Good stuff AJ, and I agree for the most part. But, I'm not sure SS is that weak. We have two guys injured true (Walker, Earl), but Mcree has experience at SS I do believe, and I know I read somewere that some feel he is better suited at SS than FS. I really think we will be okay at SS, especially if Walker fully recovers. I don't think we can expect much from Earl this year though.
Thanks for passing along the info! :o
