Ponder improving and getting better. Great outing, good leadership, strong arm. The Kid will be great!

Well, since I can't see anything. How bad is the D looking. Is it an overall problem, or is it mainly the backfield that is the issue?

I'm not quite there yet. But he clearly is improved over last year. He has looked good. He still isn't seeing the whole field. In time maybe.

Webb would have so much more value to the team if he had been put at receiver when he joined the team.

First string defense dominated. Without Allen and Williams, no pressure on the qb. And the second string DB's look like they are running in mud.

Every drive had gained big yardage. No three and outs. That's the good news. No td's in the last three drives... Bad.

I like that defense. Robinson goes for the ball, and Harrison makes the hit.
