    Its just a status report. Don't they do those were you work?

    So far, no major surprises. Although, Charlie Anderson running the first team LBs, is a bit of a change from last year when Orr was the starter.

    I don't know, TJ pushing for a starting spot is a bit of a surprise; and should be an even bigger surprise to this board.

    Yeah, Charlie Anderson had a minor knee injury during camp that put him behind last year.

    The NFL is such a game of hard work, doing what the coaches want, and be lucky enough not to get hurt at a bad time.

    A few things about the O-line that still concern me. I'm just not sure McKinney or Flanagan are the best selections for center on this team. Love both the guys, but McKinney is a LG, not a center, and Flanagan is in his twilight years as a player. Who are we grooming to be the backup to these guys? Can Kasey Studdard fill the center position? I like his disposition, he has a natural mean streak.

    Other Notes:

    *I prefer Charlie Anderson over Shantee Orr.

    *Salaam seems to be a decent backup until Spencer returns.

    *I trust Kubes opinion on Kevin Walter, and we seem to have a bevy of decent receivers vying for the 3rd slot.

    *The article on TJ this morning in the Comical gives some hope that he's finally got his head screwed on right.

    *Been very impressed with the secondary in camp thus far.

    *And who cares on the Punter? Just find some cut from another team late in the preseason, and cross your fingers :)

    I like Shantee Orr a lot more after listening to his interview. Man, he just seems so nice!
