I've been trying to say it for weeks, but have been ignored. This team may take a step backwards to go two steps forward. We have made some huge changes to our lineup. On defense we have 8 guys that are either playing new positions, coming back from serious injuries, or rookies. We have reshuffled our offense some too with five guys starting new positions for us (I'm including Baxter and Bruener). With 13 new starters, we need to be patient with both units. There are going to be mistakes and growing pains with this many changes. Those of you with super high expections for us, were probably not looking at the big picture. Everything is pointing to 2005 and 2006 as big seasons for us. My only concerns right now are: 1. DD's fumbles 2. Our lack of a pass-rush 3. Too many penalties Other than that I like what I see. We cut down on the turnovers, reduce our penalties and get a bit more better pressure on the QB, and we might end this season strong. I've been disappointed in our losses, but I do see us improving in many ways. Has anyone taken the time to look at Carr's numbers? He has made huge strides from last year. His completion percentages are insane. Babin has been disruptive on many plays. I can only imagine how good he can be when he catches up to the speed of the game. All four of our WR's have made clutch catches and have played well to date. I see brighter days in our future.
