Late welcome to the CAA.
« on: August 03, 2014, 09:53:43 am »
Happy to find your board, and looking forward to visiting Sept. 27. Still unclear how good you guys might be this year, but you came in with respect from the whole league. Tribe needs to find a healthy QB, but is well stocked everywhere else.

Welcome aboard!!  The Seawolves have a little QB work to do as well, with three primary candidates vying for the position--and all to be new to the starting role.  Hopefully the team is sufficiently recovered from the injuries that devastated it last season.  If so, I'm expecting they'll be a lot better than the preseason conference prediction of a 9th place finish.  Hope you enjoy your first visit to LaValle Stadium, but that the Seawolves don't make it as welcoming on the field for the Tribe.

thanks tribe and welcome to you too... agreed on your assessment.  my concern is replacing what was a very experienced LB unit.  and also some changes on the OL but im less worried about that.  i expect us to be making use of our TEs even more this year.  my ex-boss is a member of the tribe.  i hope you love lavalle and we get good weather for our game.

Big changes on D Line & O Line; there are players who left the program & left voids on each. They are trying to fill the spots now; I am not thrilled w one move.

I believe this player would of kick some A this year at TE; he trained hard this off season & looked really good working with NFL trainer at home. He would  be a great dual threat with Will Tye.

This kid got game; & he was on the team last year.

No, Hammer.  Valentin was not on the team last year (i.e. will be a freshman this year).  But, ddmd may be referring to Ryan Julien, who seems to have disappeared from the roster.  It may explain, however, why Valentin's position was changed from LB to TE.  Do I have it right, ddmd?????

No decision on Valentin; I heard he came in heavy 275#; he could wind up at Tackle.

Allen Singleton going to Nose Tackle & they are moving Davis to DE. Davis really put time this summer into his game at TE; he ran 4.62 in 40 yard dash; vertical 30" & his route running also improved. Davis was killing it against other athlete this summer while training with other CAA athletes in Maryland; he was catching everything thrown to him. It was impressive how much quicker he was coming out of his cuts & finding open space.

The former Raven player & trainer was impress with his ability as a big man at 6 ft 8".

He was also one of the better blocking tight ends on the line last year behind Tanner; he was able to get out in open space & keep his Block.

He  finally healthy this summer & was playing hurt all last year dealing with a nagging injury: (This is a tough kid).

I feel for him; he was looking forward to killing it this year at TE & now to go into the preseason & retrain skills as a DE vs TE skills; Tough job.
