    Question about the new DC

    I understand that the new DC has more of an attacking style defense than maybe what the clones have had in the past. My question is how do you think the current players will fit into this system, namely is there enough talent at linebacker for them to shoot through and make plays to stop the run? I know the team is halfway there with the corners, but I'm wondering if the current team should look better on defense immediately, or if it will take a year or two to recruit to the system. Thanks for the responses!

    I think Jesse Smith could do quite will if this was all he had to do. I was always swearing under my breath every time I saw him back peddling.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.
