Only one more week to go. See that wasn't so bad. There was a blade of grass in my front yard that, when measured weekly before cutting, grew a grand total of eleven inches during the dead zone. I feel very lucky to have had the time to watch.
It is nice to see the rookies in the lime light with stories on DJ Jones, Victor Bolden and Ahkello Witherspoon. Hopefully at least two of them will be able to make valuable contributions to the team this year.
Speaking of Ahkello, he was one of my draft favorites along with Joe Williams and Malik Hooker and I am probably a lot higher on him than most. I would not be surprised at all to see him move up our cornerback depth chart rather quickly. I am personally optimistic enough about him to think he and Rashard could be a very solid force in the NFL for years to come.
