D-line issues

So of course everyone knows our d-line is our weakest point of our team besides special teams as of this moment too many mistakes dropping punts etc. but anyways many people don't realize we actually have a decent chance of having a above average d-line. Obviously julius peppers play can go from great to horrid in the flip of the switch so its sorta 50-50 on him but if charles johnson can improve (6 sacks last year in limited playing time) and everett brown can continue maturing and make a difference on the line immediately as did jon beason did his rookie season our ends could be very solid along with tyler Brayton rotating in and out. Now for DT thats our main issue kemo is out and were thin there. we just signed two players who should help fill the gap with damion lewis but if our organization is smart they'll sign shaun smith from the browns at 6'2 325 hes a big dude who could rally help us out. With those players all rotating and keeping fresh i could see a good defensive line this year hopefully... just a thought

Re: D-line issues

I'm a little optimistic but it could end up being alright this season

I think Harris and Leonard will plug the Kemo gap adequately, with Hayden going to backup again, where he belongs.

Re: D-line issues

yeah the way leonard played last week look for him to be the starter in a week or two if his play doesnt slip. hayden will probably rotate in as well as brayton and charles johnson on passing downs. i would love it if we could sign shaun smith but we're so tight on cap that we couldnt squeez him in and still be able to add a player later if somone else goes down.

Our DL looked liek the weak link this time last year and ended up being a strength (top ten in sacks).  I am hoping for that this year as well.

A little confused on the two waiver pick ups.  Harris makes alot more since than another RB in Sutton.  There should have been two DT picked up on waivers period.  Teams are going to run right through this defense.

I agree here. Why another rb? It would have made better since to pick up an extra offensive lineman to add to depth. We have enough Rb's with williams, stewert,a nd goodson unless they are not releasing all the injury info on stewert and he is worse than what they are saying


I am the most corrupt mod the growl has ever seen!!!!!
