Sgt Marinelli reporting for duty
This one will be quick, kinda like the new coach. I like the guy, based on what I've heard and seen so far. And as he says, talk is cheap, lets see results. Simple, straight to the point, and dead on the money.
If he actually gets the O-Line and D-Line fixed, this team could FINALLY have the turn-around year we all think is waiting to happen. If he finally gets players to act like professionals and go all out on every play, it could be special. If he can turn Joey into a leader, the sky's the limit.
On second hand, that's a lot of 'if's'. We'll see how it plays out over the next several months. I'm cautiously optimistic about Coach, but we've all been burned before by a Lions coach.
What may be even more interesting is what players may not be here next fall. There will be some fallout, and it will be interesting to see who the casualties are. No predictions yet, but it could be very interesting in the transition from Mooch to Sgt. Rod...
