Caribbean Hen wrote:#11 Anthony Jackson

yet another player who was good enough to play as a true Freshman in 2014, last year contributed 53 total tackles and 1 Int. had 10 stops in the Towson game playing at outside Linebacker

He has shown flashes of being a playmaker so where does all this leave #11?

Probably not starting if Colby Reeder steps in right?

this competition is where things get interesting and let's hope Anthony comes into spring practice determined to stay on the field, no doubt he will be in rotation regardless if he starts!


it was obvious that Anthony Jackson did step up, sure one of those picks was thrown to him like he was the intended receiver but I saw him make a very athletic play, type of play that cannot be coached Cluck, where he fought off a block and clocked the QB,

if he's good enough to allow Colby to RS, he's good!

It's obvious that we have a lot of talent of D but what we dont really know if we have a player that can create some havoc

Joe C just posted on the "meanest Hen" thread that we need a player to develop some nastiness

Who better than Donalson? He was brought in here to create some pressure on the QB and attack. We really need him to become that player.



well well well, it was good to see Donalson scare the QB with his athletic quickness into an INT for Anthony Jackson

exactly what we need to see from Aaron Donalson right here!

It's a long way from DSU as we approach the remainder of the schedule. A lot of wins coming up which are possible might salvage his job. He speaks the talk, can he walk the walk??

watch this play by Anthony Jackson, forget the 2 INT's, this is a play that was about to go for at least 10 yards but enter #11 and boom, fights thru a block and knocks the receiver on his azz

beautiful play that cant be coached...

Well I see the opening post in this thread has been removed, I sense some back door complaining going on here...... insert whiney voice.... you let ole Carib say anything he wants, and you always delete my posts ... stompin feet noises.... why why why :D

well fair is fair I guess but geez, cant anyone make a tongue n cheek comment about poor KC without being deleted.... It's not like I haven't lampooned Coach Brock on here.... it's only fair.

the opening post was actually a pretty good lead in to what is going to be one of the best Defenses we've ever had.... started saying it about 1 year ago today.. haven't changed my mind

now stop crying and just watch our D and you will all feel better :twisted:

Caribbean Hen wrote:#1 Malcolm Brown -

I see talent in this player, major talent!

Good enough to jump right in and play as a true Freshman, this is a player that should jump onto the CAA radar screen this year and one I have been excited about since the day he was signed comparing him to Sidney H (no pressure), no excuse for not trying him at Punt Return game as well as he looks like he could be a crafty special teams player...... joins the secondary as part of what will be known as the best one to play at Delaware in a long time with Buck Jones and Nassir Adderly, were talking 2010 good!


anyone else see it.... :D that INT was big leagues,

You're allowed to look them up yourself if you really are interested but we are 8th in the CAA in punt returns and 1st in ko returns. Doesn't make senses does it? If you can return a kick you certainly have the talent to return a punt.


Problem on this board is that we've won 2 games in a row and it's obviously bothering some people. Several have disappeared from posting altogether while others search for tidbits to complain about.
