    Wow you are really not following what I'm saying. I watched the guy play live in the Music City bowl. I have watched UNC games when he was there on my TV.

    I hope you took up for Chris Henry as much as you have this guy.

    Look at :43. He did a good job of getting back for the interception. Why? Because he didn't move the O-lineman an inch on his pass rush.

    Just goes to further my point, your showing me a three minute clip which half is replays of the same plays. Look at the last play and tell me he can't tackle. Sure I can admit he arm tackles and needs improvement, you guys act like he is the worst possible tackler you ever seen. Just because he doesn't lay a jarring hit or truck everyone every play. It all can be coached, their are good and bad to his play. All you guys do is nit and pick at every single flaw and can't see the brightside, this has to the most negative fan base around.

    We drafted a linebacker because we are GOING to need one next year when spoon (who is mediocre anyway) leaves. This gives the kid one year of seasoning and development before we have to count on him.

    As for the "tape" obviously, tackling is a weakness. Obviously, the coaching staff either figures that he brings other things to the table (coverage, pass rushing) or that his tackling issues are something that can be corrected. I imagine its some combination of both.

    Quite frankly, similar things were true for many players with first round grades. Coples. Poe. Brockers. All of these guys have off the charts talent, but bad habits.

    From everything I've seen on Brown, I'm confident he will be at least ok for us. He seems to want to improve, and god knows he has had bad coaching at UNC. I think our staff and veterans can help him improve his weaknesses just fine.

    Although I thought we left needs unsolved by our draft, I do like the players we got. Zach Brown however does raise the biggest question mark. He is an LB and doesn't like contact. That scares me a little. With his speed and ability to cover in the passing game, he may become a passing situation specialists.

    If you don't want to hear any "nit-picking" or "negativity" then do yourself a favor and don't come back until at least the first preseason game. This is just what we do between the draft and then. So it is and so it shall ever be. Get on the trolley.

    Well may not as well then either because we are not on the field. How do we know what is going through their head?:sad2:

    Coaches may have switched from red to blue Gatorade and ruined his on the field play.

    Well I can't blame the coaches for switching to blue Gatorade, it's a lot better...
