    Let’s hope this is a sign that the Team recognizes the pathetic performance of our pocket protection last season. It is true that Anderson and Edwards were not exactly the dynamic duo, but the opposing pass rush leading to hurries and sacks was relentless. There were times that our QB had just a couple of seconds to throw the ball even with no LB blitz.

    I like the move. The line was not up to par last season. I like Shaffer, but it is time to get something better going.
