Where will our defense rank next season?

conner would be out of position at OLB.

besides, it's not like Diggs is holding us back or anything. He's a fine player.

To be fair, most thought Beason was going to be out of position at MLB. We'll have to see what happens. Connor is very athletic and smarter than most. I can see him simply being in the right place at the right time, regardless of his presumed skill set.

what?

unless im remembering wrong (which i never do) he was drafted as a hybrid M/OLB who would play outside if Dan Morgan stayed healthy, but was better suited for the middle and was a good insurance policy.

don't you remember all the "move morgan outside" threads after we drafted beason?

Doesn't matter if he's inside or outside, he's a gamer and will be better than Diggs.

How about this for an exercise--name all the teams that will have a better defense than we will.

Steelers, Ravens, Eagles, Giants, Vikings, Titans for sure. Redskins and Patriots probably. MAYBE the Bears and Jaguars bounce back. There's a big group of teams in the middle tier, of which the Panthers are a part. We could seriously finish anywhere from 10th to 20th, and statistically, a lot will depend on how much time we control the ball.

There you go, that means there are only nine teams ahead of us. Wait, the 49ers are looking pretty good... make it 10 again. :)

The defense will be ranked 7th in the league and the offense 9th. When Ralph Sampson left Virginia the team exceled. The defense has always expected Peppers to make the big plays because he is "A Freak of Nature" With no one else to depend on hopefully these guys and the douchbag DC step up

Middle of the pack, anywhere from 10-20, and that combined with a top 10 offense will be enough for a solid playoff run. Everyone thinks our defense is going to explode because Pep is leaving and Trgo is coming back, but we still have a lot of talent on defense and Trgovac is most certainly going to get his act together after the abomination of a defense he produced at the end of last year. He knows he'll be fired if he replicates that next season.

I would say middle of the pack, mainly cause of the talent, regardless of the bad coaching. Although the rankings are a bit misleading, aren't they based off yards? We had some games where we gave up yards but not as many TD's. I don't think we'll be as bad as some thing, but we won't be top 10 I don't think.
