    Added a big press CB that we needed and some LB depth, we still suck? Go ahead and throw in a really good DC, 2 starting caliber Safeties, and Sammie Lee Hill who is a big upgrade over Marks.

    That's the motto we're going with. Also, young players will hopefully develop... talking about Ayers, Brown, Casey, and Martin. McCarthy will hopefully stay healthy, won't happen. We did bring in LB depth, which is huge... no more Shaw and mid-season pickups starting at LB. We also signed two GOOD vet safeties, to fix our worst defensive problem: SS. We also signed a big ol DT Lee-Hill, who will shore up the run hopefully. We added VETS.

    Now, let's get Alex Okafor in the fourth PLEASE.

    i dont doubt the defensive coaching now that Williams is gonna take over but i do doubt the personnel. Still dont have any real good pass rushing DE's and the CB unit on this team is one of the worst in the NFL

    You're right about DE's but CB unit one of the worst in the NFL?...

    Perhaps we are going to blitz a little this year, play a little 4-6.

    To add on, I think we all saw how better we played as whole when McCarthy was on the field too. If we can keep him healthy, look out, cause we could be much better then we actually thought with the new additions

    Not true about our DB's. I'd say it's even likely that we add another CB in this deep draft before it's said and done.

    At DE, Wimbley and Morgan are both better then average. Morgan especially. With a bigger DT on the line drawing double teams, hopefully we'll see better results in 2013

    Who cares, there were plenty of good quality WR early 2nd. We gave up the most points in the league last year. You can argue Rogers was better than Hunter, plus can Locker even throw the ball 20 yards down field without being hit or miss? Just seemed like something that could have waited. Could have gave up the same pick (3rd round) for Marshall last year, its just the point.

    NO, don't do it please. This team had no pass rush besides the last game against Jacksonville and Miami. Don't be fooled.
