    I heard on some podcast, that they may be trying to have someone other than Moses call plays. The goal is to let Moses play “free” and instinctively.

    It sounded like the reason McMillon was pegged as the starter was not because of his physical ability being better than the guys behind him, but because he is such an intelligent player (engineering major) and knows the defense as well as anyone even if he doesn't have the playing time to back it up. Benton's been in the program as long as Moses, but I would be surprised if it isn't Moses calling the plays.

    Me, too. But Mack's problems last year prove that experience and physical skills do not guarantee that you can get your teammates into the right alignment. This is a pivotal year for DM to prove that he is more than the sum of his physical gifts. How many times did we watch him and Mack cover the same guy or run to the same spot?

    Freshman Jordan Battle was the second-team strong safety. Daniel Wright was the second-team free safety. Shyheim Carter was the second-team nickel back. Scooby Carter and Marcus Banks were the second-team cornerbacks.
    That was interesting read right there.

    Suggests the first team nickel is Diggs, Jobe, and Surtain. Would be surprised if Shy doesn't move to the first team, but if he doesn't, that would indicate the skill possessed by the young guys.

    Agreed. I think we'll see some position being established after Scrimmage this weekend.

    Agreed. Shy is too good to not be on the field a lot. As big of leads that we will have I'm sure we will be in dime a lot and Shy will get some nickel reps also IMO.

    Sounds to me they are in the phase where they are trying to see who can really play where and which parts work best together in combination as well as ensuring the second line guys have some versatility in where they can step in and play in case of an injury.

    We saw Jennings off on the side in a knee brace yesterday. Just saw the practice clip from today and he is barely moving. Not sure what happened, but he seems pretty limited in practice right now.

    Gotta think that Carter would at worst be the dimeback.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    At WORST.....

    I mean he was 2nd on the team last year with 10 PBU's and 2nd in INTs.

    He was 1st on team in Picks 6's with both of his INT's being housed.

    I just can't see how he won't be part of Nickel and Dime packages.
