Maurice Evans is a complete stud. He certainly is, don't get me wrong. However, we see both the PPG and the CDT trumpeting his excellence on the exact same day. Big MO will certainly have an opportunity to prove himself a dominant player this year. The departure of Dan Connor and Sean Lee will force Evans to be a better player than he was in '07. He will be facing double-teams on every play in 2008. If #48 can reproduce his 12.5 sacks from '07 he will have established himself as a game changing defensive player.
On a sub-note, The CDT's article is called:
Maurice Evans: A quiet stormCorrect me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Courtney Brown's nickname the Quiet Storm? Evans is great but need we recycle our nicknames. I shall now propose a few better nicknames. (Side note, the PTR article refers to him as the "Sack Master" which, when taken out of context, is truly awesome.
Maurice "The Destroyer" EvansThe PTR is perseverating on the lack of a "starting" QB. Yeah, there is a QB controversy. Who will be the starter come Illinois? Gee, I dunno, maybe the guy who plays the best over the first three weeks. Or possibly they'll switch between both all year. Who knows!?!?!??!?!
