Porter is non existent right now. Sigh... if we only stayed with Randy... And i always believed in Lamont cuz i live in NJ and i always saw him play as a Jet. It starts in the trenches. Curry solid like always. I agree with your assessment. That is all.

i really like the miller/madsen combo so far.

gerard warren has been great. worth the draft pick so far imo.

gallery has been solid so far too.

I'll continue to say it until we do it and make me look smart, but they should move Huff to CB and play Ward at SS. I'm not just talking about in the Wolverine package, I'm talking all together. Fabs has looked pretty lost this year and for how fast of a timed speed he has, he's getting burned. I think Fabian at this point would make a tremendous Nickel until he's ready to be elevated. Huff has good cover skills and has enough fluidity and versatility to play man with most of the leagues' #2s. I think the secondary would be a lot better if we could get more pressure up front though, teams have been able to sit back and basically pick apart Fabs because they have about 10 seconds to do so, it's hard for even the best to keep coverage for that long.

I can't believe there hasn't been a Griffith mention at all yet either. If you watch the games he's a huge part of the offense. He's been a great run blocker and is getting good outs on screen passes, I'm really impressed thus far.

i always believed michael huff was either a future pro bowl FS or CB but he too is out of position and until the team recognizes this its gonna hurt our secondary. moving fabian to nickel, huff to CB and Ward to SS would greatly improve our defense and help out our improving O.

I think Huff is doing a fine job. He is still young and when he does get beat for a pass at least he is there to make the tackle, and he almost never misses a tackle. It doesn't help our secondary when we have zero pass rush. We really missed Burgess against the Browns and I hope he is back this week. Howard is one of the fastest LB's in the league and while he may not have ideal pass rushing size, he should still be able to penetrate past a FB or TE on a blitz.

The biggest improvement this year is without question the coaching. What a difference in the playcalling this year. Cable has installed an effective OL scheme and Kiffin, for all his inexperience, has made good adjustments at halftime in the first two games.

Nicest Surprise - Madsen/Miller have easily been the most pleasant surprise in the first 3 games. It's amazing what a good TE can do.

Biggest Disappointment - Fabian and our pass rushers. He's really struggling right now, so much that Routt is taking a lot of his playing time. Hopefully he turns it around.
