"We're going to look at this group," General Manager Dave Kasper said, referring to players in camp, including Santino Quaranta, Danny Szetela and Floribert N'Galula.Which the "we need a #10!" crowd will read as: Counterattacks 'R Us; let's get physical! I have some sympathy, but I've also long been in favor of doing away with the lynchpin and spreading the playmaking love. A 4-2-2-2 with two holders playing behind two nominally wide players cutting inside to feed a pair of mobile forwards would have me very intrigued, though I fear Onalfo's implementation and the current lack of quality finishing on the roster to carry it out.
Coach Curt Onalfo added: "First and foremost, we feel very comfortable with the players we have in this squad. ... We will continue to evaluate players, whether they are in the league or outside, to continue to help our team. We have had some significant signings and we feel very good about our team as we go into the season."
Perhaps Pontius will put it all together. Perhaps Allsopp will make a more impressive splash than I anticipate. Perhaps there's a super-secret mystery international attacker waiting in the wings.
Isn't pre-season fun?
