    Osemele off to fast start

    Pretty good article about KO.

    --------

    Ravens' rookie tackle Osemele off to fast start - Carroll County Times: News Web Site

    While veteran Bryant McKinnie remains on the non-football injury list with a lower back injury and conditioning issues with Michael Oher occupying McKinnie’s old left tackle spot, the Ravens are hoping Osemele can provide them with the answer to their right tackle vacancy.

    “Just what we had hoped we would see: a big, athletic, tough, smart football player who will get better every snap he plays,” offensive coordinator Cam Cameron said. “He’s going to just keep getting better, better and better for the next three or four years. I would imagine he’ll be just like Michael, every snap get better, every day get better, every week, every game. It’s just a matter of getting his fundamentals down and getting him some game experience. As you guys know, we draft people around here for a reason. We’ve got us another one.”

    great to see this! The more pro prospects that develop out of the CPR tenure the better chances we get better recruits as well!

    I had a Freudian moment, I thought the thread tittle was ... Off to a false start.

    Glad to see KO doing well.


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”

    Really good article. Thanks for posting.

    Hate having to like a Raven (can always respect one/some - but 'liking' - yikes), but will always cheer for KO.

    The subpar defense from the Cyclones gives the Hawks a chance to finally start to get their confidence rolling on offense. Both running the football and through the air.
    *Breakout player prediction.... Everyone is going to have their eyes on Allen Lazard because of his hype coming out of H.S., but Derrick Willies steals the show.

    That's great to hear! Seeing Cyclones playing on Sundays is always awesome. Any updates on Leonard Johnson and how he's doing with the Bucs?

    He signed a contract I believe not long ago, so I think he has a good shot to at least play. Johnson that is.

    Sounds like he's making a good impression, some nice quotes about him
