Quote: ''Good luck Demitric. Part of me wants him to fall into obscurity the way Derek Smith did, but I have a feeling that he might pull a Walt Harris.''
lol, derek smith was actually really good for us his first couple years.
He was "good" on our s**ttiest teams in franchise history.
So pretty much, he was a polished turd.
Nolan liked to hang on to and play vets over younger players. I think Nolan was like George Allen; he just didn't trust rookies. With Nolan, he just kept playing guys way too long into their decline. Walsh was ruthless, as soon as a guy got older and just BEGAN their decline he cut them. Youth must be served.
Evans' value isn't just what he can do on the field...but, he's a guy Balmer can emulate. Every team needs those vets who can show the youngsters how it's done. I think he'll prove to be an excellent acquisition.
