    Some interesting things and a some answers to our questions. Here's what I took from it...

    - They are worried about Domanick's knee.
    - DeMeco will be starting somewhere. Probably MLB.
    - No one has really stepped up as a leader on either side of the ball.
    - Babin's put on some size and appears to be the leader for the RDE spot.
    - Travis Johnson is still a lazy slob.
    - They're still looking for some veteran help (depth) in the secondary.
    - He still likes Michael Stone a lot.

    Good read. Do you get the notion that Demeco may be the face of the franchise for the next 10 years?

    Kubiak really likes the guy and it sounds like he has earned the respect and the time to be on the field as a starting LB. Can't wait to see Demeco on the field this pre season.

    I do not see the word "execute" anywhere in his quotes

    Awesome, I didn't know Wong was at the mike for us. I think DeMeco will grab the MLB job even if Cowart is playing 100%.

    Ok.... *Sniff*

    I started tearing up at the end of the (on how it feels to be head coach) and on the (message to the players) section I could swear I felt one on my cheek. Especially on the part about having meetings, practicing, and playing like winners.

    Our KR savior while Mathis is out? And this should really help his chances of making the team.

    If you've started referring to yourself in 3rd person, I guess it's time for camp too start, and not a moment too soon! :cool:

    I was about to say that.



    I'll be watching that guy in preseason.

    I liked what i heard about DeMeco. I also liked how the focus wasn't on Mario. No need to put any more pressure on the guy.

    Jerek, odd to see you in this forum. :)

    I kind of feel I have been trapped in solitary, spending time in the NSZ, and finally there is light at the end of the tunnel in the form of training camp.

    The virtual air in this thread is mighty fine and may have to stick around awhile. :mario:

    Just what I need...another reason to look forward to September. Can someone tell me something negative? Like scouting reports on possible first overall picks?

    You think he likes this guy? Can any of the members who were at OTA comment? I am sure you noticed and said something before, but...

    And for a preemptive strike I did notice the lack of zeal for Vernando.

    I remember AJ and I think coachc both saying they were impressed with Taylor. Who knows, either he, Lundy, or both could turn out to be at least role players on this team.

    Sounds like you need to be brought down a notch. Let's see. Lemme reach into my porkorama memory bank. Oh lookee, I think I found something. Hmmm, could Vinny have said these things?

    Mike Williams will never be stopped in the red zone.

    Larry Fitzgerald is too slow, and can't gain any seperation.

    Oh and for the record, your's truly loved Fitz coming out, and was not enamored with Williams. :stirpot:

    My goal for this team is to have meetings like winners meet, prepare like winners prepare and practice like winners practice. We will go out and turn this football team around and be able at some point and say we’re a winner and become a team that has a chance to win 9, 10, 11, 12 games a year, that’s where we’re headed.

    This is my favorite portion of the presser. I like how everything starts with doing what a winner does. The expectations for these guys are high, and I like how they aren't going to be compromised in any manner.
