yankeedawg1, a lot of past football seasons about this time of year show a change in emotions.
This is as excited as I have been in many years about our noted gains, resulting as you say since Mc and Grantham came on board. There is nothing that I like better than "proof positive".
Just like the peddler making those cold calls, the door continually gets shut in your face, but the peddler that continues to knock on that door will usually get results. I think that is what has happened to our defensive side of the ball. As mentioned before, we will see just how good the Grantham led side of the ball does in the Fall, have been knocking on that door for three years.
Great post yd1....spot on. The D will carry the team all year while the OL matures and gets experience. "Shut Down D" (SDD for short yd1)......total confidence in CTG and the SDD.
Thanks for making the effort to check out the "island", hopefully there won't be ANY need to inhabit said island this year. Beryl was basically a "non-event" typically sensationalized by the media. Sure some wind gusts and rain but geez, we had more severe thunderstorms yesterday that did much more damage than 'ole Beryl and we live in Ponte Vedra Beach right where Beryl came inland. Everything is fine in our neck of the woods. Just "hunkered down", had a cool one and let Beryl water my yard.
Have a great weekend yd1 and thank you for your usual great Friday post. (toast one to ya tonight!)
