I bet all you guys and gals calling for Richard Smith's head after the first few weeks feel pretty sorry right now. We have moved from 32 in team defense to #27, not earth moving, but considering how bad we did the first few weeks, significant none the less. This group of young guys has really come alive as Mario has become more comfortable at the NFL level. It also did not hurt to get Faggins back from the injured list. Ryans has been the most consistent player all season. Now I am concerned that all the injuries to the defense will start to cost the stats. (Not that they matter). But seeing this group of young men become comfortable together, and becoming a team has been fun and I am looking forward to seeing them get better in the future. Thank you Richard Smith and Gary Kubiak(for bring him back here).
