As the season is getting closer and closer, I am more and more convinced that Brackenridge will be the leader of the defense and a team leader in the locker room. While he is not a "rah rah" guy or a guy that does a motivational speech before each game, he lets his play do all the talking on the field.
With the loss of key members to the defense, it's his time to step up and lead. I know that he always wanted to return to Rider Nation and even with other offers from CFL teams, he choose to stay partly because of the fans and partly because of the opportunity to win a Grey Cup.
I think he is about to have a breakout year!!
