Schwartz has got to get on his ass. He's not a rookie anymore. He's got too much talent to just be mediocre.

The W is what to like. Especially with injuries piling up to skill guys.

How hard do you think it was to fool the guy who led the offense last season and who saw those defenders every day ? Reich is no dummy, we won. I'm good with it.

The problem right now with Mills is he has a rep in the league for PI's. The first one was ticky tacky and if he didn't have the rep it may not have been called. The second one was legit. I love the fact he has no memory of these things. I really believe he could move to safety and soon. His strength in tackling and his ability to help in coverage would play very well there in the Rodney McCloud role

I agree for the most part taz. Good corners are hard to find though so I don't think the Birds can make that move until they let this season play out. Of course talking Mills into it probably wouldn't fly lol. A lot of it has to do with McLeod too and what they are going to do with him. He makes a mistake once in awhile but to me he's been excellent so far this year. I've never been down on him anyway.
