Jeff Gordon from the PD on the same old, same old.
Interesting round table discussion about James Laurinaitis's week one performance and his potential value to the franchise. I must say I was very excited to see the former Buckeye drop all the way into our lap in the second round this year, and remain optimistic. What he lacked in coverage skills and reaction time he made up for in toughness and intelligence, not to mention production - he is the team's leading tackler. He'll improve his quickness and coverage as the year goes on and gets up to NFL speed. It's only week one, but I think Laurinaitis has the ablity to grab the defense by the horns (no pun intended) and be the leader it's lacked for some time.
A nice piece from The Oregonian on the NFL's 2008 Mr. Irrelevant and new starting linebacker for the St. Louis Rams, David Vobora. He too showed potential, at least for someone who was picked last in the draft. If he continues to play hard and limit mistakes I think he'll remain in the starting lineup.
The Redskins are 0-1, after losing to a hated division rival, just like us. Thing is, they play in the best division in the NFC. The Washington Post on why the 'Skins will be ready to get back on track against the Lambs.
The Rams open up today at -10 against Washington.
A happy Wednesday to all. Go Rams!
