Our CB's last year, Williams and Fletcher, were very physical and grabby. It was Williams call tag last year and although not successful, it was still the way he plays the game. My fear is that if you take away that leeway in his game, he becomes a low sub CB at that point. Even as it was, he wasn't rated as a starting CB last year, but wasn't a Marshian embarrassment at any point. He competed.

Combine the focus on taking his #1 defensive move and coloring it yellow, and a pass rush that still seems nonexistent, and it could be a real long year defensively.

It looks like we need our offense and special teams to make up some ground.

It does seem like the refs are being more active against that type of play. Not only does it render Williams as a less valuable commodity, but it makes defending a guy like Desean that much harder.

Which is just awesome if you don't think about it.
