Finally some sense. I didn't think he performed that bad. When it was just a straight rush, he held his ground for the most part.

He's a smart player and he will learn on the job. He will get better each game.

Time and experience will tell whether the Fins have the season in hand.
Pennington needs to sharpen his skills.

I am telling you, they need 3 more guys like him. Trade some players now and get more picks and pick more Longs for next year. This way, you won't win games even when the line solidifies, and you can pick up the key pieces on the cheap later on.

If you build evenly you run into the problem where your team is 10-6 all the time and after every 3 years you constantly lose players to the cap, i.e. the ones who do look good when you're going 10-6. If you only draft linemen, offense and defense, nobody really looks good, and then you can stockpile pieces year after year.

Hey, Ken. I live out here in North Park. Had trouble watching the game out here at Mission Valley (Seau's) only had 2 Dolfans watchin, didn't even have a jersey or a cap. Do you know any Dolfan Bars around San Diego? Thanks, bro.
