  1. John S says:

    Unfortunately Aarons best game comes at the wrong time, but happy for him. I wonder how different things would have been if Dawkins was able to play. Mincey is the man. Minus Harvey it seems like you can’t go wrong with a gator DE.

    • SC Gator says:

      Yeah, Aaron was like a man playing with boys out there. I realize that a lot of it has to do with how they were covering the other big targets but Denver really had absolutely no answer for him.

    Well the old SI curse did strike again … at least we got that out of the way …..
