This time last year we were flipping head over heals at the moves that our fearless leader took to lead up into the playoffs. Matty Ice was playing like, well, Matty Ice. Turner was teaching defenses a whole new meaning to the word trucking, and Curtis Lofton was lighting people up like the Fourth of July. While Sam Baker was nursing a back injury, he too came back to be effective once healed. Add to that the contributions of Chevis Jackson and the big play ability of your friend and mine, Harry Douglas and all in all Comrade T.D. pretty much knocked the socks off of his first draft.
Now as the 2009 Draft day came around, we all sat back and said "In Dimitroff we trust." But my question is, did we speak to soon?..
I believe that what the Coaching staff has done so far has been phenomenal, and the moves made by T.D. have over all been fantastic. But in light of the recent news that William "C4" Moore is now on injured reserve that leaves the 2009 Draft in question. Both our First and Second round picks (who were also both slated to be starters) are now on injured reserve while our 3rd is no where to be seen. And all i've seen out of our 4th, Sidbury, who I like, is an offsides penalty. Could we have possible put too much faith in our fearless leader? I doubt that, i still think he made some great moves. I mean, come on, Tony G.?!? But perhaps, just maybe, he reached a little bit in this draft. Both of Jerry and Moore had a history of injuries that were overlooked. Anyways, enough talk from me. I believe in T.D., Smitty and their ability to make this work. Last year earned that and more from me. But unless Tye Hill starts lighting it up against the Saints I think I'm going to have to grade this offseason a good bit lower than I initially thought.
But who cares about what I think, what do the other Falcoholics believe?
