    Default Training Camp reports have mitigated 3 Biggest Concerns -- but a NEW ONE has shown up

    My 3 biggest concerns for the season were:
    1. Nkemdiche replacing CC -- all reports are very positive
    2. RG -- hearing excellent things about Boehm including him being the strongest OL
    3. CB2 -- hopefully a Vet signs soon and an improved healthy Bethel would really be good depth but see concern below

    P.S. Twice today by separate Card observers is that Hassan Reddick is unbelievable in coverage so we might have our TE stopper. The LB's of Golden - Reddick - Dansby - CJ should be awesome.

    NEW CONCERN -- Honey Badger confidence and mentally he is not 100% back. Prior to injuries it seemed he would have 3-4 INT's in a week of practice and those haven't happened yet.

    Relax, youre overthinking things and creating problems that dont exist.

    Ive been to 2 practices and the thing HB hasnt been: noticeable. And FYI, "invisible" is the best thing a CB can be. It means hes doing a good job. If you never seen him, it means hes not getting smoked.

    Yeah I agree " No news is good news" ... Its been quiet because he hasnt done anything bad or super spectacular... AS long as he gets the job done.

    Relax, don't get too high or too low on players. Nothing is 100% until it gets real.

    Nothing has been mitigated. It's just training camp. Call me in October.
    Still searching for our QBOF.

    Are you implying we haven't had a TE stopper in the past? Cause we had one in Tony Jefferson the past 2-3 years before his departure.

    But hopefully, Reddick becomes one too to fill that void.

    I felt the Budda Baker pick, especially when they moved up to the top of round 2, was Honey Badger insurance. When healthy, HB is the difference between this team getting creamed 41-13 in a Championship game and going to a SB.

    The guy's a veteran. He doesn't need to impress in camp anymore. He'll be ready. Don't know how long he will last but that is of no concern.
    I have a girlfriend and a job.

    Yeah as hope he can come on back and really given time to heal. Defense suffered all because of him last year. Or one of the main reasons.
