Nothing like a couple wins to get people talking positive about our team. Feels like an eternity that I've been defending our players, coaches, and especially our owner from regurgitated scrutiny. Buncha damn media parrots out there. Nobody has the stones to come out and say anything good about RRRAIDERS players. Even a guy with Nnamdi's talent and off the field track record gets little publicity.
Granted, we are merely 4-4. But a little love is long overdue. And it should start at the top just as the blame went. Some solid roster moves lately should be duely noted. In no particular order off the top of my head.
1. NOT biting on Randy Moss or T.O. (Tired of being wrong Schefter?)
2. Last season's 1st rounder. Maybe the best thing isn't that it WAS Rolando, but that it WASN'T Bruce Campbell.
3. At this point, taking Hey-Bey over Crabtree doesn't seem like such a stretch. Keep in mind Crabs would have held out just. Very ugly sitch after the Russell ordeal.
4. NOT over-paying McNabb for 1 season.
5. Parting ways with Morrison. Hard to justify giving up your leading tackler for how many seasons? Kam Wimbley turned out to be a solid pick up along with drafting RoMac.
6. Richard Seymour. Screw what the Pats can get for the draft pick. His leadership and veteran presence is invaluable when we have youngsters like Houston, Shaughnessy, and Scott learning from the example.
7. Michael Bush. Dear god, what a pick. Great kid, great fit. Team player.
8. DMC. All of a sudden, nobody mentions that other Arkansas back. Funny. I think I remember hearing all about how he wasn't even the best RB out of his old college backfield.
10. Louis Murphy. I love this kid. His effort alone blocking last year VS the Eagles for Zach won me over. The fact that he can catch a ball and make a play with it afterward are just a bonus. The guy just exudes fire for the game.
I might have left off one or two. Feel free to add to it. I'm sure there's a sizable bone head roster move list to combat this one. That list can kiss my RRRAIDER ass.
