Several other players confirmed the choice most particularly linebacker Takeo Spikes, whose 122 tackles are greatly due to Franklin's presence. "A lot of things he does goes unnoticed, but if you're another player, you see it," Spikes said.
"You see runs up the middle and the running back will cut it back; Aubrayo will make the play but not make the tackle," Spikes said. "The running back will have to cut it back because of his presence. He's one of the best nose guards I've seen who manhandles the center."
Franklin most underrated
WOW! Just goes to show how much WE know. Franklin has been considered no better than mediocre for the most part in this forum (by myself as well, I admit). Maybe all our demands to upgrade at NT are unfounded afterall.
