    That Dan Camporele feel good story was a waste of two good games of experience McCain could have had.

    Easy now Dan Camporele did his job and knew the plays at the time and with the injury of Wilkerson he did what was needed. McCain will get better as time goes on and I get what you are saying but his time is now so lets stop looking back. We see what we have with Wilkerson and McCain now and there play on the feild will only make the defense that much better every week. I see Cecil rotating with McCain to keep a fresh body going all the time ,now it’s time for the offense to do the same. We don’t have to talk about the D for now.
