I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
Not that we didn't know already that this team is going to be
giving us ulcers fun and exciting to watch, but Mr. Spath at TheWolverine.com has a nice article worth reading. I'm bracing myself for a lot of close, high-scoring games this year as I know we all are.
Michigan's coaching staff has been raving about safety Cameron Gordon since the spring, but during Saturday's scrimmage the redshirt freshman was one of the biggest culprits of a day-long epidemic: tackling woes.
13 days and counting, people! GO BLUE!
A friend just showed me the following tweet by Tim Cowlishaw:
Revis and Jets announce new deal, probably Wednesday. You heard it here first. "Inside information!"
While I am not optimistic about this actually happening (i am a Jets fan), I am hopeful that it is indeed true. Not only could the Jets benefit from not having that distraction, but they would get their best defensive player and one of the best defensive players in the league back on the field with plenty of time to prep for week 1.
Is it just me or does Jonas seem to be a cold blooded hitman lol. Im hoping for a big year out of him and the rest of the D. He seems like a guy whos willing and capable to step up and lead this defense as well as strike some fear into opposing offenses. His added weight (listed at 250) while claiming to have retained his speed should prove to be a pretty good force in the middle or as an outside backer. I thought it was interesting that he mentioned maybe playing both sides... like fullback or strictly as a run blocker maybe in goal line situations. Either way im pumped to see what these guys are going to do and he seems damn well confident that the D is going to do just fine.
I met JT Floyd and the rest of the secondary at fan day. JT is real personable. He was always smiling and talking to all the kids (and chatted with the parents too). I'm a big fan of his now. I hope he locks down at one corner and has big success.
FYI - Marvin Robinson is ALL BUSINESS. He is going to be a monster on the field.
Mgoblue.com has some interviews up from today's media day. Includes Denard, Tate, Floyd, V. Smith, Molk, and Roundtree among others. Drew Sharp quizzes Tate pretty hard about being called out by T. Wolf. Tate does a good job to respond.
Angelique has quick summary of Tate's interview. There is also a short video of RR.
