Who knows, with a little luck, the defense could show some improvement. Hagerup is quite talented. Broekhuizen battling it out. Stonum returning to handle those duties. Rodriguez finally has some players with experience on offense. Players and coaches alike say that a change in terminology has made things easier for the players to understand defensive play calls, so improvement could be on the way. Unfortunately none of that will make up for a severe lack of experience and depth in the secondary. So as a man thinks, so shall he be. Bryant, who was coming off an injury-marred season. Bryant in the starting lineup. Bryant missed all four preseason games because of the knee problem. My goal for this upcoming schoolyear. And you go ahead and take money to throw matches, you deserve to be, dare i say it, beaten up. Pakistan, and people beaten up, for much smaller offences. Ramirez on waivers. They had enough of his antics and were displeased with his eyesore of a contract. They willed anyone to take him off their hands. The injury-bug continued to bite him this season, as he has made three trips to the disabled list. Ramirez has played sparingly. Angeles was on the verge of sending him packing. It was a fitting end to a disappointing season with the team.
