"We have a group that management believes in, and to be honest I believe in. We're going to have a pretty young group of defense that can grow together, like guys that really care and that are gonna go out there and compete. During the last few years we've come up a little short the best thing we can do to address that is to go out there and just compete every night." That is an interesting quote from Miller. It seems like he is knocking his teamamtes effort but he is so smooth about it.
