Hopes play has been excellent IMO. He is the only person on our team making tackles. I have seen some nice plays out of Thornton and Mawae has not allowed a sack and seems pretty solid. That last one I have said my piece on until he gives us ammo AGAIN this weekend to want him out. We had the youngest roster in the NFL last season and we had the oldest player playing in the NFL. That should tell you something about where in this rebuild we are.
