It helps that the running game has started to come around forcing the safetys closer to the line. it all comes back to the run. Dear Oakland, please try this.
It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. --Theodore Roosevelt--
Didn't this come up just a few months ago where a player admitted in a book or interview that he faked an injury so he couldn't be cut? I think it was a football player, but I remember hearing about it on Mike and Mike.
