Apologies if I've missed a recent thread, but figured wouldn't hurt to start a fresh REDBLACKS forum for the upcoming season. At least we have one team to be proud of in the city at the moment. Health depending (no different for any other team), this could be a pretty strong season. The soldiers remain in place offensively, but with the renewed focus on the defensive side of the ball, I'm expecting a lot of wins in 2018. Thorpe is one of the best, and he's aggressive. With guys like Purifoy, Leonard, Newsome, Hebert and Pruneau leading "d-block", I like our group. The pass rush should be among the best.
