    how bout we find 2-3 good DTs.... and STICK WITH THEM.

    this "no starter" rotation thing clearly has not worked out. these "professional athletes" should be able to play for a full 1/2 of the game... It's not that long..

    How many of the minues are actually used in actual playing time? 11 minutes total playing time on average... We can't find two guys to go hard for 5-6 minutes of real playing time???

    This DL by committee thing does not work for us.

    That's not surprising. There would be a number of defensive snaps that we didn't have 2 DTs on the field for (prevent defense etc). Those are %ages of the total defensive snap count.

    Richardson just reminds me of a single gap penetrator and not much else. While he is explosive in that, I'm not sure that's what we need. He would be a great 5 tech for a 34. A marginally better klug in a 43

    somebody clarify for me- has Washburn ALWAYS been wide-9? Why do we commit to wide-9 if we get Washburn back? He seems to get the most out of average players. I could see our DL exploding in the middle again with him teaching some of the younger players. I just think Tracy Rocker has little to no experience in the NFL and we are seeing the results of what he has to offer.

    Yeah, i'm not sold on him either... literally for those points you just said. I'd prefer to spend on Henry Melton and pickup a DE, OG, OC, or CB in the 1st (or Te'o).

    Wash gets sacks out of average players, but in result the opposing run game dominates you. The DEs literally have zero run support. It works when you have massive DTs that can fill multiple holes, but that's about it.

    I guess that makes when we were dominant years ago against the run with AH. Even in his bad games or his abscence we did well against the run. Obviously, I'm not a Rocker fan.
