    From the Detroit News:

    Henderson won't back down

    That's good, considering in past years, the defense was one of the best looking things the team put on the field. Defense and special teams.

    We have to be able to put pressure on the QB. Our secondary is really suspect.

    With Big Daddy out and Cody in, we might see a drop off in run D and an increase in QB hurries, knock downs and sacks.

    Hopefully Hall can stay healthy and Redding and Edwards can take it to the next level. Especially Edwards, now that he just signed a 5 year contract.

    They're putting a lot of stock in Edwards, I hope he lives up to it.

    "That's all that I was worried about, it being a competition rather than being political or, 'If you draft a guy that high, you have to play him.' "
    Holt says he has gotten better every year, and he says he is improving in key areas -- reading the quarterback, breaking on the ball, taking better angles.
    "This is a contract year for me," Holt said. "I'm going to come and compete and show my worth to show I'm deserving of being a starter."

    I didn't really like the "contract year" talk. A lot of athletes talk like that, and I suppose its only human nature, but I think the player should play as hard in a non-contract year as he does when his deal is about to expire.

    I can't stand players - in any sport - that just turn it on and off whenever they feel like it. Vince Carter is a perfect example.
