    This is like a never ending nightmare, the guy finds a way to start every year. But now it's worst because we have him and his duplicate starting opposite of him, instead of D-Rob. Oh the horror.

    yea, I know... I'm just still suffering from the psychological effects from Lee Evans and that Falcons game last year. I just hope Bennett get out of his slump before Faggins inevitably get into his. If Faggins keep playing like he has though, then we might finally have a good problem to solve, once D-Rob comes back and Molden start getting into the groove.

    I'm not counting on Dunta this season. Hopefully Faggins, Reeves and Bennett can give us decent enough play...I've seen some good stuff from Reeves and Faggins even though there are obvious holes in both of their games.

    I believe Dunta is trying to come back too soon. I know he wants to play and we want him back but his injury was a severe one. I just can't see him being fully recovered this early in the season. But if the doctors clear him to play who am I to disagree. I just hope when he does come back he hasn't lost a step.

    So they benched Bennett instead of Reeves? Yeah, that sounds about right for our defensive coaches. As soon as Bennett has a good game, they bench him.

    He came off the bench last week, Faggins got the start last week too.

    You've got the order of events wrong.

    The coaches benched Bennett and THEN he has his best game.

    They bench Okoye and THEN he has his best game.

    Odd how that works out. Hopefully, they actually figured something out and didn't just get lucky for one game.

    I'm happy with benching players who aren't performing up to expectations from past performances if it makes them step up their game and improve. It seems that Bennett and Amobi are taking this as a challenge instead of pouting and demanding a trade.
