    Re: How Do You Think The Defense Will Do In 08?

    We had lots of production in creating turnovers and scoring on defense. If we can develop a solid pass rush the sky is the limit. If we can get pressure without blitzing then I would start to get excited. Blitzing every other play really doesnt do shit if you cant get to the guy, well I guess it does do something it gets your ass handed to you.
    If you promise to be smarter, I will promise to be nicer.

    My posts are worth 6 of yours.

    Hard to believe that as bad as most of us thought our pass rush was last year we were ranked 8th in the leadue in sacks.
    Problem was, that isn't a bad stat, alot of those sacks came from non-DLmen.

    You enamored with any of the FA left?

    Too bad that between the KU thing, and all the strikeouts on FAs, we're moving in the wrong direction in relation to our no. 1 need

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    I want QB pressure...I don't really get very excited about sacks, although everyone looks at that stat to determine our D-line's success. Honestly I would love intense pressure collapsing the pocket and the ensuing mayhem leading to a hurry or a pick or a fumble. If I see that consistently, it will work like viagra for me every time. ;D

    I like a good sack right along with the next guy but a tackle for loss makes me just want to drink more beer.

    Agreed,
    there are lots of ways to measure DL success, sacks is just one of them.
    I would love to see our guys consistently getting at the QB.
    Even if they don't get the sack, when a QB finishes every play on his back, he starts to make mistakes.

    Re: How Do You Think The Defense Will Do In 08?

    I think we will surprisingly go for a couple defensive players high in the draft this year.
    We all know that we need a DE, but I think we will still take a safety in the first 3 rounds to be Sharper's eventual successor.
    Don't be surprised if we take a DT early as well as Fred Evans is our primary backup for the Williams brothers.
    I like Dre Moore from Maryland as a potential pick for us.


    If we add some depth/starters on defense in the draft this year, I think we will have a top 10 defense as far as turnovers and points allowed.
    If we add a dominating pass-rusher (hopefully Harvey or Groves) then we will be top 10 in total yard allowed too.
    Rock out with your cock out!!!

    Re: How Do You Think The Defense Will Do In 08?

    I think we will be very happy with our defensive progress this year, but we will still have some problems against the pass. We still have risk-taking safeties with Sharper and Williams, but if Winfield is back and healthy then our corner play should be better and we should improve in the secondary. The loss of Kenechi is going to be felt for sure, but I think that we draft a DE more than likely. Unfortunately, with a rook DE and with Robison (out against the run) and Edwards (also not great against the run) our run defense may actually look a little more human, but hopefully our ends can get a little more pressure on the QB.
    I expect a top 12 defense or so, hopefully balanced out by a much improved scoring offense.

    Very solid post my friend.

    I am not totally unhappy with Mitchell at LDE going into the year.
    Lets not forget he was young last year and didn't do to bad.
    In fact I don't remember him making any bonehead plays.

    He will be responsible for stopping the run, holding the edge/containment and then getting after the QB.
    I have bigger concerns about what our RDE's and our DT's will do this year.
    Who will win the starting job at RDE and can he get a bit of pressure off the edge.
    Also, lets not forget how important it is for our DT's to collapse the pocket a bit as well. The gotta make it uncomfortable for that QB and not allow him to step up when the rush does get there from the edge like we saw a few times last year.

    As with all the young kids at the DE and our wiley vets at the DT positions, its time to srap it on, get in your stance and bring it.
