LB Luke Muncie is fine...Miles thinks the playcalling will advance as more consistency is reached with the basic stuff...Miles sees Mettenberger improving and wanting to become the QB that everyone thought he was....Miles hopes we are developing a genuine #1 passing option, but so far he hasn't stepped up yet...Even though they are backups and young players, Miles does not believe the current OL players are being asked to do something they aren't capable of ...OL Josh Williford hopes to return this weekend, but if not, Miles would not speculate on a replacement beyond Josh Dworaczyk.
