Adrian Amos and Stephon http://www.cardinalsofficialnflstore.com/12_andre_roberts_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html Morris don't see it
The group has been identified as the potential weak link on a defense that returns most of its firepower in the front seven. Senior starters Drew Astorino, D'Anton Lynn, Chaz Powell and Limited Andre Roberts Jersey Nick Sukay have all moved on, casting doubts on a young, thin group of defensive backs.
Adrian www.cardinalsofficialnflstore.com/98_frostee_rucker_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html Amos and Stephon Morris don't see it the same way.
Amos is still working at both cornerback and safety and could be a key player at both positions. After an upanddown 2011 season, Morris takes back his starting job and hopes to rediscover the form of a shutdown corner in firstyear coordinator Ted Roof's aggressive scheme.
With new personnel and a new coordinator that will blitz and leave his cornerbacks on an island, there's reason for the skepticism.
Morris is taking it as motivation.
"They say we're supposed to be weak back in the secondary, which I don't really see," Morris said. "We like the criticism. We just want to prove everybody wrong."
Amos has identified Morris and hardhitting free safety Malcolm Willis as reasons to be optimistic. Both players have had productive stretches in their Penn State careers, but played reserve roles behind senior starters last season.
With a starting position finally in hand, Willis could be a player who takes a leap forward as a junior. As a nickel back last season, Willis had his moments, perhaps none better than a threetackle effort in a win over Iowa.
"I didn't learn anything about Malcolm Willis because I already knew what he can do,'' Astorino said after the game.
"I've been telling you guys what he can do for a long time. He's a starter, he really is. He, right now, is a great player."
The Nittany Lions will need great players to emerge to hold their own this season. Besides Amos, Morris and Willis, Jacob Fagnano is expected to make an impact and freshmen DaQuan Davis and Jordan Lucas have impressed coach Bill O'Brien early in training camp.
O'Brien will need at least a few of them to grow into prominent roles. Amos and company are prepared to let their play do the talking.
"We're going to hear people saying things all the time, especially because we graduated four seniors and we're a young secondary," Amos said. "All we have to do is compete. All we can do is come Cardinals Frostee Rucker out and compete every play."
