The entire 2009 team has the aggressiveness and determination reminiscent of the 2008 players, football coaches said this week.
In a drill, Bennett watched running backs rip into two linemen then smash into a secondary duo.
"Yessss, baby - nice job," Bennett yelled to the players, both offense and defense, performing the drill.
"We definitely have a group of guys who enjoy high-speed collisions," he said.
Bennett said Monday that the team has the spirit and the basic skills to succeed, but some players in key positions need to take their game to the next level.
"We're in a good spot right now," he said. "We've got enough to build on."
