Anybody else see a young moose in this kid?
Do you remember the beating he took from Richards last year? Do you think Dubi remebered that and made up for it in last nights game?
If I remember correctly, he got a beat-down twice
last season from Richards because he refused to be intimidated by him and back away.
I understand what you're saying but physically it's so hard to see that because the kid still looks like he's 12 years old, can barely grow a beard, and I think his voice is still changing.
But seriously, we can see him learning from his mistakes. We can also see him improving his skills. We saw him last night takedown Richards who pwned him last season. This kid will meet every obstacle or challenge in front of him head on, with the determination to overcome it or beat it down. And you can hear in his comments that that's what he expects/hopes for from his teammates. He's strong, but not an intimidator like Moose. But he's a young leader on this team that will only grow as he gets older. I'd agree he's like (a more vocal) Graves.
