Glad to hear Beamer lost the weight. Has he also stopped smoking?

Maybe the players know there isn't much broken at any position.... not perfect, but within reason... given hard work and focus on the job/goal at hand can get the team close to achieving that goal. At least that's what I want to hear.
We still have a young team, overall.... and the players are focused on being the best they can be, or helping the team the best they can. It sounds like there could have been a little apathy at times a few years ago... sure didn't see it from where I stand 100s of miles away... but Logan mentioned something, that isn't noticeable with the current team. I can only try to read between the lines... but if there was an attitude shy of a winning attitude, then I'm happy it's gone.
Even Beamer losing 30 pounds since last season... is sending a positive message. It really is hard to get out of ruts and habits... and breaking them takes extra discipline... and so does going from being a very good team to a championship caliber team. Nothing is broken, and there's a winning attitude prevailing.
