Totally understand your point, but I have seen some of the most loving parents have children who end up in jail or worse. We do our best as parents, but there are absolutely no guarantees with our children.

The last one will be the best IMO. Younger brothers are always playing up to their older siblings and in his case, they were darn good. I watched a good bit of that ECU game and he was near flawless. Great player.

Agreed, it is much easier to adjust in 7 days than it is during the game.  My high school always scripted our first 10 plays to see how the D was defending our base plays, then adjust the plan (if necessary) from that point on.

I rewatched the game. 10 times he had good separation from Fuller, a very good corner. He'll get the drops fixed and end up being our best receiver.

2 things I really think Meyer is too enamored with.  Assistant coaches who can recruit and team speed.  Ironically, we have coaches who can get recruits in with "speed", but their coaching ability severely limits said players.  Then as we saw with Von Bell last year, these coaches somehow mess up talent evaluation.  What good does a 4.3 guy do if he is constantly out of position, or he is limited by bad play calling.  Lose the flash and hype and get back to fundamental football.  One example tackling;  I saw at least 15 "hits" last Saturday without wrapping.  This really gets to me because I watch my 1st grade son wrap all the time, anybody can do it.  That's bad coaching.

Corey Smith. It was very frustrating to watch him drop a couple of passes, including one for a TD, but it is one game. Jerry Rice struggled so much with the drops his rookie year that the 49ers wondered if they made the right pick and he turned out to be the best receiver ever. I am not saying Corey will be the next Jerry, but a new and bigger environment can be overwhelming at 1st. He played at high school and JUCO ball where the largest crowd may have been 15,000. His 1st real (not navy) game is under the lights, against good school, in front of 107,000. Lets give him a chance. He did create some separation against a very good corner, Fuller. We all know that drops are 99 percent mental.

No, we do not have the same talent. Raney and Demps both ran under 10.10 in the 100, Tebow is one of the best college football players ever, and look at Harvin. Hate to say it, but we are not as talented as those teams.

And learn how to wrap. Can't believe this fundamental that my 8 year old just learned is hard for these collegiate players. Not just Doran though

He did get beat, but he had good coverage and that ball was perfect.

Come on Silver Bullet, come clean.

He also had about 20 tackles in the navy game; of the running back who didn't have the ball.  Doing his job week in, week out.

MAJOR kudos to Bengals.  After watching a family member struggle with paying hospital bills while also dealing with cancer, it shows how understanding this organization truly is.  Good to see this NFL team have a heart.  Hope his daughter and he kick cancer in the ass.
