Well I guess Dymonte is the guy opposite Wilson to start the season. I've been waiting to see Dymonte get some major minutes. With Hill out I was thinking Lewis & Raymon at CB, Countess at nickel and Wilson & Peppers at safety.

If he wasn't a legacy and was from another state like Illinois we wouldn't care. I'm sure he's a good player but what I've heard he isn't really on the same level as Bilal and others.

Delano Hill broke his jaw "a few weeks ago" and managed to keep it quiet this whole time. Man, the fort really is back.

Too bad, I'm guessing it's going to be hard for him to keep good playing weight on while on a liquid diet.

Thomas can hold it down for one game. Watson is also a safety, at least that's where he practiced all spring.

I'm sure Clark and/or Wilson can play some SS if needed as well.

This has no impact on Peppers, it's been said after the fumbling of Thomas that he's not moving from the NB spot, period.

Countess, Taylor, Lewis are your CBs with Stribling the 4th guy.

Peppers is your NB with Countess is the 2nd guy.

Wilson and Clark are your FSs. With Watson as a 3rd.

Thomas and Hill are your SSs. With Watson as a 3rd.

...let's roll.

Well hopefully this expedites Dymontes growth. Whoever is going to win that job between Hill and Thomas is going to be inexperienced so maybe Thomas gets majority of the snaps until Hill recovers. Sam Webb said Thomas is ready physically, but has to get the mental part squared away.

A Michigan legacy going to the dark side. What's the world coming to? But seriously we'll be fine. Best of luck to him except when we whoop that ass.

for a bunch of guys to play with a little more swagger. Dymonte has the tools to hang with anyone, but he seemed pensive last year (except for the punt block on opening day when he showed his burst). Stribling is just a fraction away from many plays. Lewis can blanket guys most of the time.

If Wilson can prevent big busts, then Peppers and the gang can hunt the ball and WRs with more abandon.

I hope they have something for Peppers. Since he has committed I've wanted him on offense from day 1. I strongly feel he is needed there more. Guess we will have to wait and see how this works out.

Dumb question... do the guys get access to their equipment in the summer (pads, helmets)? Just wondering how he broke the jaw in the off season.

I'm going to preface this by saying that I have no concrete information about this.

That being said, I'm thinking out loud here. A vague "football related drill" causes Hill to break his jaw, coming at a time when "football related drills" (as I understand it) are no-pad, voluntary affairs.

We know Csont'e York was recently involved in some sort of altercation that caused him to be suspended. We've heard fairly widespread rumors it involved an incident at Skeeps that culminated in someone being punched in the face and possibly breaking their jaw. Hockey players shoot down the rumor it was one of their guys. Now we have a football player with a broken jaw.

Now, I'm no math person, but this seems to add up.

If it happened a few weeks ago, then I would think that he would be ready well before the opener, unless they hold these guys out for longer than they used to.

legacay or not.  With limited class numbers, it wasn't going happen.  Spartoons will twist this differently ... probably the Freep also but I don't read.  We just need to shut some mouths with an exceptional season.
