    I just read that Will Demps will be the second player wearing the helmet, in case Demeco has to come out. What that tells me is that he's a lock to be on the field. All the talk about safety depth aside, I think Will is going to be a fixture in our secondary. What a great midseason pickup

    Good to hear, I also think it has to do that he's incredibly smart and the FS. MLB and FS seem to be the positions that are the QBs of the defense. It's just scary to think that we picked him up during the season and he's become a solid starter for us.

    I guess this makes sense. I mean who else would you logically pick? Diles hasn't played long enough. Greenwood has a lisp and maybe hard to understand. Both CB's are young and new to the system. That leaves Demps and C.C. Brown. I know C.C. has been here longer but I think Demps is more suited to doing something like this. Now when Dunta comes back, that will be a different story. He will probably be the 2nd choice when he starts playing this year or maybe they wait until next year to give him a little more time to get back to where he was before the injury. JMHO!

    The FS usually handles the responsibility of awaring his secondary teammates of the defensive calls, if they didn't hear the original call by the MLB, so it makes sense.

    Probably a good thing we re-signed him this offseason.

    Demps has the ability to freeze opposing WRs with the Zoolander look long enough to deliver a bone crunching hit and break up the pass.

    This is why he gets this responsibility.

    I didn't know about Greenwood's lisp.

    I just thought the Cool Running Jamacian accent was to cool for everybody in the huddle.

    Not unless Dunta moves to safety. The point of having the wired helmet is to communicate to the entire defense, not just one player. In most defensive alignments, the cornerback is in the worst possible position to relay the coach's thoughts to the rest of the unit. He's simply too far from the rest of the defense--especially the other corner. The guy with the helmet needs to be somewhere near the center of the defense, so Ryans or a safety make the most sense.

    The fact that you actually know the song well enough to have it come to your mind every once in a while kind of scares me.

    Though, now I may start doing this now, too. :X

    I am a big fan of Will Demps. He plays with ATTITUDE and hits like he means it. Hopefully some of those attributes will rub off on the rest of the defense. D. Robinson is another one that plays with ATTITUDE. Just love to see those hard hits he delivers.
