Most every time I saw RJF in a game, he was getting double-teamed. I asked myself what opposing teams knew that some folks on this board didn't.
Balmer looked a lot better than last year, but occasionally inconsistent/raw. I think it's a matter of discipline; he needs to learn to control his space, do his assignment, and not let himself get suckered out of position. But he seems to have the strength, speed, and reaction parts down pretty good, at least for a one-year DL.
