    If that is the case, they should have made the same trade with New England at the end of 1 and got everyone's boy CP. Thats my point, we gave up as much as someone did in the 1st round.

    Locker is most successful on deep throws actually.

    I agree probably gave up too much, but pick 34 is almost round 1 and the other trade you mention was what pick 29. So really not much difference expect the cosmetic round 2 vs round 1

    still hate losing that 3rd NEXT season

    the team is definitely gonna have to blitz ALOT next season because they will not get pressure only rushing 4 with their current dline

    Worst defense in the NFL is not even close to the reality. Maybe worst offense, worst team, but not worst defense.

    You ever watched our cbs last year? We GAVE the quick pass on nearly every play. The D line couldn't get a chance to get near the QB unless they were waiting for the long ball. I'm not saying we have some underrated D line, I'm just saying with press and bump and run cover corners, we have a much better shot at actually getting near the QB with our Des.

    Regardless, the way we drafted regarding the defense says we arnt really worried about getting there with just our front four. We are changing the scheme to be more aggressive. I'd rather see us blitz on every third down, than play off man cushion zone ghettoness. I think we will see some odd fronts this season with Martin and Casey as ends. If they use these players in a creative way, we can do a bunch of things to get after the QB. I really wanna see us line up Martin, SLH and Casey as a 34 look with either ayers or brown coming off the edge.

    Last year we were dropping DTs into coverage and doing some straight silly ass nonsense that only works in madden... Lol it'll be better with Greg Williams around.

    1. Gregg Williams is going to help big time
    2. We've added quality players, leadership, and maybe most importantly actual depth at positions.
    3. Our pass rush wasn't as bad as people make it seem.

    Really my biggest concern is DB play. I hope this rookie can come in and contribute, hopefully Pollard can play at a high level for 1 more year, and maybe Pollard's play will rub off on Griffin a bit.

    i think so too, Williams will definitely help since he is a top 3 DC in the NFL

    Like so many said earlier, our D sucked mainly cause our O was horrific and Gray's scheme was garbage.

    We have so much talent on both sides of the ball now. Really, it all falls on QB Jake, OC Dowell, and DC/A Gray/Williams.

    Just saying, but a lot of our D underperforming had to do with Jerry Gray's playcalling. That is why we brought in Williams. Gray will be our D-Coordinator on paper, but Williams will be calling the plays. That alone will improve our D. Plus, we significantly improved our SS position, one of our weakest units.
