Hopefully these cats can fire low, hard off the snap of a running play and relentlessly drive their man till after the whistle sounds. Even with all the acclaim of the last group, if this group plays with a bad attitude...we will be much better off.

Go Team #118!

The last group was very overrated. I can count over a dozen games where they failed to show up completely. Hopefully this group performs better.
