08/19/12 - CB DeMarcus Van Dyke struggled through his first two preseason games, failing to carry over a training camp in which he looked to be one of the team's most improved players.
Against Arizona, Van Dyke gave up a 31-completion to DeMarco Sampson and a 30-yarder to Stephen Williams. He was beaten on several occasions against Dallas.
Afterward, Van Dyke sat in the locker room, his head in his hands.
"We just have to keep working with him and getting him better," Allen said. "Don't let him get his confidence down. Keep competing. He is still a young player so every day is a learning experience for him. We have to keep going with him and getting him better."
08/05/12 - CB DeMarcus Van Dyke, subbing for the injured Ron Bartell, has been a revelation after a difficult rookie season.
Van Dyke got a start midway through the season, floundered and was replaced by Lito Sheppard, who had only been with the team two weeks.
In both drills and team sessions, Van Dyke has gotten his hands on more passes than any other defensive back, and he has defended deep passes, slant passes, out patterns and even showed skill for blitzing at a beefed-up 185 pounds.
After three days of interceptions, he finally intercepted a Carson Palmer overthrow and raced it back toward the end zone.
