This week our starting middle linebacker was named as one of the more disappointing rookies this season. I think the media needs to cut the guy a little slack since, oh I dunno, he’s only played two games. Te’o is still learning the ropes and he’s been doing a serviceable job so far. He just hasn’t made that big play that the media love so much. I’m sure his play will improve as his experience grows. You know Manti knows about the general opinion of his two starts; I hope it motivates him and he rocks it tomorrow.
