  1. Happy to see Jose in training. The way he left the field Saturday, I thought busted ribs for sure.

  2. Does anyone remember the union of ten years ago and someone complaining about them playing “Smurf ball?”
    They are a better team now. Also a squad of much, much bigger guys. This is probably not a coincidence.

    • Tim Jones says:

      Yes, Tanner does not visualize small slight players as successful professionals as a general rule.
      But Anton Sorenson is a “smurf”-sized player. And he is now spending more of his practices with the first team. granted that they need him to make up the numbers. But he was credible in the recent open practice’s small sided games.
