There aren’t a lot of names changing in the secondary or on special teams, but expectations certainly are.

Brandon McDowell, Dila Rosemond, Stephan Johnson, Javante O’Roy, Clarence Guidry III and Damani Alexcee all played at least five games last season so in games reps won’t be the concern. Secondary is easily one of the Bobcats’ more experienced unit, but it was also one of the more targeted units last season.

It seemed like I was an urban cowboy on a mechanical bull at Mickey Gilley’s night club as the boat rocked and rolled.  

My big sinker had just reached the reef 200 feet down. I could feel the weight hit the reef and then come up about eight feet as we rode to the crest of the next wave.  

Then the fish hit.
