I too am trying to be optimistic about his return. It sounds like there's an excellent chance for his eligibility without any further bombshells. One thought I have that I haven't seen addressed however is, will he elect to? I hate having that negative thought, but our recent experiences and the whole landscape of CF makes me apprehensive. I'll feel much better when he announces his return and that he is ready to come back and dominate again.

Thanks for the feedback, Stx, but 30s/40s often feel like a heatwave in Ohio. It stays cold  day, after day, after day. It has to be an adjustment. I'm not trying to be a smart*** in the least. I think he'll handle it well. I was just wondering if Day was attempting to mentally prepare him for that. Not disagreeing with you in any way, GO BUCKS!

I have two takes on Day's comments:  (1) I think he's going total PC on attributing the improvement in the D mainly to a years growth in the players. I have a hunch the players would attribute it more to coaching. Kudos to Day.  (2) I love the fact that he is not overly concerned with individual stats throughout the game. I always thought that was a major flaw with Urban. Getting certain players "touches." It should be about the team, not stroking egos.

I can't find any significant weaknesses/issues with this team. Extremely impressive. One thing I'm surprised with, however, is where is Teradja Mitchell? I thought he was supposed to make an impact this year. This defense seems to really fit his skill set. Is he still not 100% healthy or do we need to wait for next year to see him really ball out? Thanks in advance.
